Monday Funday

Monday, January 16, 2012

Jennifer Nanney from The Blonde Aquarius tagged me in a post and I, of course, decided to follow the rules and tag others.

{the rules}
1. post the rules
2. post 11 fun facts about yourself
3. answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and then create 11 new questions for the people you tag
4. tag 11 people and link them in your post
5. let them know you’ve “tagged” them

{facts about me}

1. I'm currently a fiancé, but in a few months I'll be a loving wife.

2. I've lived in Mississippi my entire life, but this year we are moving to Alabama.

3. I love to cook, and make messes in our kitchen.

4. I might be a little bit obsessed with The Real Housewives on Bravo... just a little bit.  lol

5. I'm trying to quit diet drinks. (Boy is it hard!)

6. I go to sleep with lots of distractions... TV (not muted) and with a air purifier blowing on my face. 

7. I would rather have all the lamps on in the house instead of the overhead lights. Terry is the opposite.  lol

8. We eat at McAlister's Deli at least once a week. And we order the same thing every time. I'm pretty sure we should own stock in them.

9. My best friends are my sisters. And I'm pretty sure life would not be the same without them.

10. I've learned through planning our wedding/reception that what I thought I wanted growing up, is not what I want today.  =) 

11. One day, we hope to have one maybe two children. Again, ONE DAY!  lol

{Questions from Jenn Jenn I had to answer:}

       If you could change your name, what would you change it to?  Hmmm... growing up thought I would love to change it, but I think Joy fits me well... so I'll keep it.   

     What is something you expected to accomplish by now but haven’t?  Honestly I figured I would be a mom before now. God had a different plan. However, we plan to have kids in our future.

      What is your purpose in life? To bring joy to others.

      What are you passionate about? My relationship with Terry. 

      What’s your biggest fear? SNAKES I hate them and fear one day one will be in the toilet. Don't ask... I saw something on TV about it.
      What are you looking forward to most within this next month? Our dinners and showers given by sweet friends and family.

      What does MLK day mean to you? Remembering one who stood up for what he believed in... while not be ashamed to shout it for everyone to hear.

      What’s your favorite book? The Help

      What’s your favorite guilty pleasure? Realty TV... seriously I love it. Dance Moms, Real Housewives, Bethenny Ever After, Kourtney and Kim Take New York, Pawn Stars, Storage Wars, Swamp People... love them all...

     Chocolate or Salt? Both, please.

     Who is John Galt? Had no clue until I just looked him up... I plan to read more later!


     {Questions to answer from me to the folks I will tag:}

      What was the best part of 2011 for you?   

     If you were given the choice to have a maid or chef which would you choose?

      What does love mean to you?

      What's one piece of advice you can give this future wife? 

      Do you make your bed every morning?
      Are you a couch or recliner type of person?

      Super bowl... which do you like more... the game, the entertainment, the commercials, or the food?

      What got you to start blogging?

      You've been given a lazy day, what do you plan to do all day?

     Cheesecake, chocolate cake or apple pie?

     And only because it never fails that someone will ask you this in life... If you could be a color, what color would you be?! =)

  1. This is fun!!! Thanks Joy! I can't wait to post my answers!

  2. This is going be fun! I am with you on the lamps! I hate "real" lights! Thanks for tagging me!

  3. sorry - i'm just now seeing this! our internet has been a little wacky over here lately...let me leave you with the answer to 1 question in case I don't get around to the advice is to follow His instructions from Ephesians - Respect your husband...I am no expert but I am learning that showing respect is how I show love to my husband - men & women are definitely wired differently and just because I need him to show me love in certain ways does not mean that he needs the same in Him who created you both and know that He will lead you to a love relationship that should only come 2nd to your walk with Him.


Thanks for taking a moment to read the Sowell Life.
