My friend, Bianca, tagged me on this little deal. So, here are my answers.
1. Name one thing you do every day.
Aside from pray. I lather myself with an essential bit of Bath & Body Works cream. I love that each day I get to use a new flavor…it’s such a nice way to start my routine. I love it! I’ll share my kidney but don’t ask me to share my Bath & Body. LOL
2. Name two things you wish you could learn.
I wish I’d learn to love the Lord with all my heart, mind and soul. I’m tired of being a 30% lover of Christ. I WANT MORE!! I desire to desire Him.
3. Name three things that remind you of your childhood.
Swimming Pools. I immediately think of the sounds of splashing water, people laughing, blowing bubbles under water, dunking, and back floating in the middle of pool with one around but God. Good times.
Watermelon! Nothing like a cool piece of watermelon on a blistering Corpus Christi Day!
The Beach. I love the smell of salty air.
4. Name four things you love to eat but rarely do.
FRUIT CUPS!!! It’s a South Texas thing. This cup is loaded with all kinds of goodness. Fruit cups are layered as follows: (bottom to top) watermelon, cantaloupe, honey dew, pineapple (extra pineapple for me please!), cucumbers, and coconut. Then, there’s this yummy salty/spicy/lime concoction added over the top of the fruit and it drips down onto each layer to create this incredible almost indescribable GREATNESS! My mouth is literally watering as I write this!
My daddy’s BBQ! That’s all I gotta say about that!! I love my dad. I love his BBQ more! LOL jk DAD!
My mom’s lentijas! It’s like a Mexican version to the American Chili only made with lentils and has way more meat!
The Mediterranean Kitchen! My favorite dining experience in the whole wide world!! It’s located in Bellevue, WA (my old stomping ground) and I miss it dearly!
5. Name five things or people that make you feel good.
Holding a puppy. I just love their sweet soft fur. Not to mention that I LOVE LOVE LOVE puppy breath. I don’t know why…God made me weird like that!
My sister. When I stop and think about it, I mean really think about it, God could’ve put us in two different families but he chose to put us together! She knows my heart. She makes me laugh like no other on this planet and she gets me. I moved back from Seattle because I just couldn’t imagine raising a family without her.
*just a quick snap shot of us. This picture makes me laugh so hard!
Genuine Friends. I often feel the closest to the Lord when I’m with my friends in the middle of a laughing fit, tear running down my face, and completely unable to breath. I know that many people come into our lives for a reason and sometimes for only a season but regardless of their purpose I love them.
Waterbabies!!!! Not many of you know this but my true passion is aquatics. Not just any type of aquatics but infant aquatics! Here are a few pictures from a few classes I taught in Seattle. I hope one day God will allow me to start my very own swim school. I enjoyed teaching the itty babies and after much coaxing by the aquatic director I teaching the advanced group of kids (baby grads – 1st class session for the child without the parent in the water) and I later learned that they stole my heart. I just loved teaching them the most basic principles of water and when they learned to trust me they’d do just about anything I asked. God taught me so much with these children. I pray that as an adult that I’d be more like some of the babies I was able to swim along with – fearless, no hesitations, trusting and eager to play and learn.
The last answer goes without saying….. I love that our Lord is ever faithful. Why would He willingly choose us?!
Tag five people. You’re it!
