73 Questions: Get to Know Me

73 Questions_ Get to Know Me from North Carolina Lifestyle Blogger Adventures of Frugal Mom

I saw this post on my friend, Hannah’s blog and since the wedding has passed, I thought this would be an awesome post to do. It would be a super quick post and with all the craziness around here, I need quick and easy.

First, before I go into the questions and answer, let me tell you a little about Hannah. You might remember her post with her cutie, Windsor in my women’s empowerment series back in March. But within the past few months, we have gotten really close. I reached out to her when I learned she was participating in a Proverbs 31 Ministry online Bible Study and asked her if she wanted to get together for dinner to discuss the study. I started looking forward to our dinners, where not only do we discuss the book Hidden Joy but also anything that is laid on our hearts to share. She is one amazing woman and I am proud to call her my friend.

1.What’s the best thing that happened to you ? Honestly, I can’t just point out one thing, so I will share several. First, my two older girls and future son-in-law pulled off the biggest surprise when they flew in from California and didn’t let anyone know. Second, would be gathering with a few close friends to celebrate turning 50. Yep I wrote, I am now 50 years old. And most importantly gaining an amazing son (one who I already considered family) this month. –

2. What’s your favorite game? I honestly have tried to scale down on playing games on my phone or computer because they are such a time suck. But when I am bored I do play.

Whether it is through the book I am reading or a particular Bible Verse or Story- I find myself writing notes for a potential blog post. Do all the ideas make it into posts? Nope, but when I am stuck on what to write I always refer to my several ( and I do mean several journals.)

4. If you could teach one subject in school, what would it be? This is super fun for me because I used to teach before life hit in 2014 so I would have to say Art or Music because any kid can excel in these and sometimes kids who don’t excel in the “typical” subjects can find their saving grace here.

5. What’s your favorite beverage? Sweet Tea and water. If you asked me this a few months ago I would have said any kind of soda but I haven’t had a glass of soda in a while ( over 3 months.)
