Today's post inspired by:
Do you collect anything? If so, what and how long have you been collecting?
I started collecting teddy bears when I was very young, probably about 8 or 9. I have over 200 of them. I now collect anything ladybug themed, and books. Always books. :)
What is one cleaning tip that you swear by?
None, unless you count Mr. Clean Magic Erasers. Those things rock!
Who would you call for bail money?
Whoever wasn't sitting next to me in the jail cell!
What is one thing you miss about being a kid?
The innocence and wonder.
Name a few of your guilty pleasures.
Coffee. Chocolate. Sleeping. Yarn.
How early do you start your holiday shopping?
I try to avoid the commercialism of the holidays, it's always bothered me, but more significantly now since we've returned to Church. I usually buy the gifts we do exchange a few weeks before Christmas, unless it's something that needs to be special ordered or something.
What is a family tradition that you would like to pass on to your significant other/children?
Attending Midnight Christmas Eve service at our church, followed by breakfast at our local 24 hour greasy spoon diner.
Buying one less gift for each other and giving that money to a local charity/soup kitchen/food pantry.
What do you consider your greatest achievement?
The glory for anything I've ever achieved in my life is 100% attributable to the grace of God and God alone. I am merely a sinful servant through which His work is done.
What do you do to pamper yourself?
Pedicures. Sleep. Disconnect from the phone/internet/etc and have a hermit day. Bubble baths. Wine (very occasionally!).
If you were to start your own restaurant, what would it be called?
I have dreams of opening a bookstore / knitter's haven / coffee shop. I haven't settled on a name yet. =)
