Will The Madness Ever Stop!

Wow! This party is C.R.A.Z.Y.!!!! I am having a B.L.A.S.T.!! Can you believe there are over 700 signed up right now? I don't know how I am going to make it to all the invites. Maybe I'll have to politely invite myself over for the next few weeks in order to catch up. Hope you don't mind! And my home has an open invitation~any day, any time...day or night...come rain or come shine...okay, enough already! You got the picture!

And now for a little Monday Madness

1. From beth: What's the most unusual hobby you have? How did you get started with it?

It's certainly not unusal, but I love signing up for any kind of free samples I can get~even if I won't use it! Then when they arrive I have a BIG basket I keep them in. It's like Christmas to me and I enjoy looking through them and see what I have! Once in awhile I cave and try something I haven't before and sometimes when I run out of something I just so happen to have a sample or two until I can get to the store! I need a life, huh?

2. From briar: How many different kinds of music do you listen to? Name a few favorites, if you please.

YES! A music question~my favorite! I have a wide variety of tastes. And I like it loud~and not because I am deaf! My kids usually ask me to turn it down!! 4Him as far as christian music goes, musical soundtracks are fun, Queen is awesome, there's Josh Groban, I love the TimeLife series like the '70's and 80's, Abba-'mainly because I am the original Dancing Queen, and I relaz to classical, but if you know me at all you know who I love always~SIGH! My man Donny Osmond....stop laughing! Hey, he's still in the biz after all these years! He must be doing something right! Scroll down a bit and you'll see another great meme called The Soundtrack of Your Life. It was so much fun to do. If you decide to do it please let me know so I can read yours too!

3. From iris: Do you take advantage of the outdoor areas where you live? What's your favorite thing to do outside? What's your favorite local bird?

We have many state parks that are just beautiful, but I have never been one to go on trails and hike. Must have something to do with my bum joints, but anyway my favorite thing to do outside is go to the waterparks. I'm great at floating in the lazy river and the slides are so much fun too! My favorite local bird is the Blue Jay. At least I think it's local! All I know is they are blue and that's my favorite color, soooo....

4. From kristy: Children: Do you have any?

Yes, I have three! Oldest-daughter (20), Middle-daughter (18), Youngest-son (16). We adopted all of them and they are biological siblings and the bestest thing that every happened to me and my husband!

5. From amy: What is your favorite part of spring?

Sniff! Mmmm! I love the smell of that first cut grass after a long winter and seeing green at long last!

And now for some randomness...

I've been busy working all day and my mom suprised me with some chinese food just now! Hello broccoli beef! Thanks mom, I needed that boost of energy!

Last night at church we had a suprise party for our new pastor. We had a popcorn theme and folks brought their favorite flavored popcorn. We brought lime and strawberry flavored popcorn. All you do is pop some buttered popcorn and add some jello to it~whatever flavor you choose~and then just shake it up real good! Your welcome!

Tomorrow night is American Idol!! Who is your favorite? I think a girl is going to win this year, don't you? I have not been as impressed as I was last year. Hopefully someone will suprise me though!

I'll leave you with a funny. When my son was 3 1/2 and we were shopping in the toy aisles at Target or Wal-mart he would pick up something he liked and yell, "Oh, I wish I could want that!" Isn't that cute?

Christine said...

So much to comment on:I think that's awesome you adopted 3 biological siblings.That is just the coolest, and that is so cute of your son to say that, you know he REALLY did want whatever the toy was!! :)
Great meme, I'll have to borrow this one!!
Have a great day Amy!

I can't believe this party either!

As you know, I love receiving freebies too! :)

Thanks for the tip about making flavored popcorn - would have never thought to use jello packets like that!

Tiff said...

Shalee said...
