He And Me + 3 said...

Cracking up at your TV shows. I recognize all those because my girls love those shows and sometimes I find myself walking in and then sitting to watch too...even though I dont' watch TV and never turn it on myself. LOL
How little jacob was in that picture. Precious.

Andrea said...

Thanks for the tag and for the sweet comments on my blog. Blessings, andrea

Beth E. said...

Thanks for the tag...I think! LOL

I'm not sure when I'll get to do this, but I sure do appreciate you thinking of me. You're a sweetheart!

rcubes said...

Thanks for thinking about me :). I felt that "tag" in my heart this morning as I woke up :) It's great to know more things about you sister. But I'm not worried even if I don't knowing that someday, I "already" know you when we get to His house. :) Did you say "amen?" Have a blessed day sister Christy. I appreciate your friendship. Love you in Christ.

Loren said...

I love your list! and I'm with ya! except the back flip thing....I will pass on that one :) but definately on eating all we want and never gaining another pound!

Trust the Lord on the timing of your Bible Study...It will come!

Have a blessed day!

Mich said...

Loved reading about you!

~*Michelle*~ said...

OH how fun!

I will def. jump on this as soon as I get everything under wraps in my life, LOL.

ps. backflips are over-rated *wink

pss. you always make me smile.

Rosezilla said...

I picked a good day to come visit your blog (from Sassy Granny's). I feel I got a big dose of "getting to know you" already. Your kids are precious.

Lisa said...

Very cool -- I like getting a bit of insight into your life!


Angela said...

Thanks for thinkin of me girl..((hugs)) I will try to get a post up, hopefully tonight,,depends though..fellowship night tonight (our ladies Bible Study has decided to meet during the summer every other week till September when we get back to Bible Study again.)...

Learned lots about are just so precious girl!!

mom-2-4 said...

I love learning about people in funny ways like this! and your shows are so great- isn't it crazy how some of your favorite shows are kids shows?? One of my favorite is a cartoon on Disney- Phineas and Ferb (oh my goodness, I can't believe I just admitted that!!) I can blame that one on Caleb my 4 year old.
Julianne :)

E @ Scottsville said...

I love tags and games cuz I get to learn more about people!!!

I love American Idol too, but yea.... you watch all kids shows. OBVIOUSLY you still have kids in the house. Kinda like MY house! =0)


Heart2Heart said...


I loved this line, "eat all that i would like to and stay healthy, never gaining another pound!"

Would't that just be wonderful. It would be the best selling diet too and no need to buy any other diet books.

I will contribute to the tag thing over the weekend. Tomorrow's my mom's birthday so I am going to do a tribute to mom!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Linda said...

Great job Christy. I'm all for the eating without gaining a pound!

LisaShaw said...


Glad I was able to stop by and visit you. I am always so encouraged when I do. If you make it to Disney I'd love to meet you. I'm not far from there.

I laughed at you wanting to do away with sleep :)

I pray you are able to do those things you desire esp the trip with your family.

I loved the precious.

Blessings dear sister.

Kristin said...

Hi Christy! I'm so glad you stopped by my blog. Thank you so much for such sweet words. I will look forward to reading your blog too! I like your lists of 8 things....those TV shows sound like the same ones I watch around here. :) And I feel the same exact way about sleep....I could get so much more done if I didn't have to do that! LOL!

Saleslady371 said...

I enjoyed reading about you, Christy! Your list is so clever and honest.

elaine @ peace for the journey said...

Funny how similar our days have been! Very busy. Very tired.

Oh, and why not go ahead and finish that Bible study you've been working on?!


Sharon@JoyInTheTruth said...

Just love reading these tid bits!

Mocha Momma said...

That is so neat that you have a friend from 7th grade.

I have a neighborhood friend from about 3rd grade, but I hardly ever see him. He stops in to see my parents sometimes. We weren't close like I am with my girlfriends.

Glad your girls are home. My son left today for 4 days, we'll see him tomorrow though cuz we're goin to the ocean where he is camping. We're just going for the day. I love the ocean.

Your little Jacob looks so sweet in that picture with the cute hat on. Your kids look so kind.

Great times ahead. Have a fun weekend.
Happy 4th

momstheword said...

One fun thing about tags is the things you learn about people! Love your son's wide-eyed expression. So precious!

Thank you for thinking of me! I have actually done this one I think. You can find it under the "tag" label on my blog.

Thank you for your sweet comments, my friend!

Alleluiabelle said...

Dear Christy,

I wanted to stop in and tell you that I love you dear, faithful friend. Thank you so much for your prayer support for my husband and myself during these trials in our lives. You are ever so encouraging and inspiring and I wanted you to know that.

I love your pictures and getting to know more about you. You are absolutely a sweetheart.

Love, Blessings, Peace and Hugs,

Joye @ The Joyeful Journey said...

This was so fun!! I want to go to Hawaii again one day (I went as a teenager and just fell in love with it!) It was incredible!!!

Jenn said...

What a fun list! I liked your "8 things I wish I could do." I pretty much agree with all of them, except I have an unfinished book I'm writing, not a Bible study. And I'd just like to sleep MORE, not give it up altogether. A back flip - YES! And I'd like to have an incredibly beautiful singing voice. Mine's OK, but I want that gift when I get to Heaven.

Angela said... it done finally,,LOL.
