Five Days 'Til Seventeen



I'm having a birthday party.

Very few of my bestest friends happen to live around here, (and due to an upcoming vacation, I may not even be here to see the ones who do) so I decided I'd have an "interent" version of my 17th birthday with the ones who wouldn't be able to make it. You, for instance. ;)

So welcome to the party! I'm also using this grand (*wink*) occasion to get to know my blogging friends more personally. Therefore, (and because it's awfully fun to answer questions) I've made up a list of six questions. Please be so kind as to fill them out in the comment box. Can't wait to hear your answers!

'Kay.

1. Your middle name, please? (For fun.)

2. What three things would make a random day in your life "The best day ever"?

3. Two of your greatest pet-peeves?

4. Coffee or Tea?

5. What would you put on your birthday list if money grew on trees?

6. Somethin' weird you'd like to share about yourself? (For instance: "I have a phobia of macaroni.")


Thanks for coming!

A good book
A happy husband and children
A tidy house

3. Two of your greatest pet-peeves?
How selfish humans can be
How wives talk about their husbands

4. Coffee or Tea?
Hot tea with honey and real cream, please!

5. What would you put on your birthday list if money grew on trees?
The new living room furniture daddy picked out! ;)

6. Somethin' weird you'd like to share about yourself? (For instance: "I have a phobia of macaroni!"
Don't know if it's "weird" but I love spending time with my kids!

Happy Birthday to a very special young lady! I have been blessed to train you, watch you grow and mature into a fine, noble, graceful and elegant young lady. I love your patient, thoughtful ways. The way you listen and draw our guests out, by showing such concern and the way you tactfully comment. I love how you weigh your words before you speak, saying only things that build others up and bless and encourage them. You are amazingly gifted and I'm so proud of you! May God grant the desires of your heart.

First of all - Happy birthday!!!!!!

And you probably already know everything about me, but I can't resist. :D

1. Middle name - Grace

2. Three things for best day ever - all my family home, a good night's rest, and sunshine

3. Pet-peeves - lights left on, and chairs pushed out

4. Coffee or tea - coffee, of course!!

5. Birthday list - as of right now, probably a car or $200 to fix the laptop I broke. :D

6. Something weird about myself - I like to drink apple juice and orange juice mixed together, but I can't drink either plain. :)

Mom - I could cry. :) Your birthday wishes are so encouraging! Love your answers and am so grateful for the unselfish, home-making momma that God gave me.

Bethany - lol:) I'm so glad you could make it ;) I totally agree - apple juice is extremely hard to enjoy. *Blech* Thanks so much!

I can't resist either. I love questions!!

1. Middle name - Pauline

2.Three things for the best day ever - When my family is happy/being strange, we're eating food I love and I've gotten something special from God in devotions/through the day.

3. Pet-peeves - Selfishness and those terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad hair days.

4. Coffee or tea - Both. And both must have tons of cream and a bit of honey. ;)

5. Something weird about myself - On occasion, I eat pickles for breakfast.

Just because I'm your best friend... and I would love to come to your 17th birthday party!!! :)

#1- My middle name is Jane

#2 The three things that make the best day ever- singing with the family and closest friends around a campfire late at night, coffee really early in the morning, on the back porch, watching the world come to life and Devotion times, when God sweeps in and simply tells you how much He loves you.

#3 Pet-peeves, Children that don't use their manners and parents who let them get away with it.

#4 Coffee or tea?... depends on the mood. Hot coffee, cold sweet ice tea

#5 Something weird about me??- I can't sleep with a single light on- but I have glow in the dark stars on my ceiling. ;)

Love you Anna!!! Always- Mamph

Aw, thanks Mamph. :) You made me smile.

1. Your middle name, please? Shalom 

2. What three things would make a random day in your life "The best day ever"?
A call or letter from you, a compliment from someone I don’t even know or a surprise visit from a friend!

3. Two of your greatest pet-peeves?
Ahhh! Hearing someone chew with their mouth open, it drives me completely bonkers! (Try looking up on Google the word misophonia) My second “greatest” would be when someone talks about another person in a mean or negative way.

4. Coffee or Tea?
I love cold coffee, but I would also have to say that Chai tea is amazing 

5. What would you put on your birthday list if money grew on trees?
200 dairy goats

6. Somethin' weird you'd like to share about yourself? I have double joints in my fingers. Which means that I can do this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Hypermobile_fingers_and_thumb.jpg

Happy birthday to my dearest friend! I love you very much, and am excited to see you  Safe travels!
Hugs, Love & Prayers, Zoëthy
