Precious picture of Jacob "helping" daddy! My kids used to love to do what their dad did.

Then they got old enough to do it and it wasn't so fun anymore, lol!

Loved getting to know more about you and your home!

Christy Rose...

I'm hopping over here to see you, but I've never done a blog hop before. Have to read up on the rules before I break some unspoken blog etiquette!

Your comments on my posts have been so encouraging. Thank you for your sweet words. I want to go back and read the posts you mention. Listening has always been hard for me...I'm all about talking!

Still practicing.

Laundry is pretty easy and has immediate results (well fairly immediate).

My kids are having a problem taking their clotes to their rooms and putting them away. Not sure what it's gonna take to get that understood.

You answered all those questions. I like your house colors. I was thinking to paint our living room sage and maybe a darker wall somwhere in there.

My kitchen is light yellow w/ sage counter tops. I'm happy with those colors.

Thanks for visiting,

He & Me + 3 said...

That was pretty cool - a lot of questions!! I have many similar answers I see.

Kerri said...

Hey thanks for visiting my blog! I enjoyed reading that quiz about you. It was great way to get to know you a little!

amanda said...

E @ Scottsville said...

I'd freeze in your house. We keep ours at 78 in the daytime and 75 at night. ha ha ha

I guess I'm just acclimated to the Texas heat!

Life with Kaishon said...

I hate that burning hair smell too and I love your purple shower curtain. Are your 5 children the housekeepers? That must be swell

Lisa said...

How blessed you are to have 5 kiddos and one that's still a baby! He's absolutely adorable, too! :)

Enjoyed reading your list!

LisaShaw said...


I loved visiting and reading this list. So many things made me smile and some I can definitely relate too.

Love the photo!!!

I felt like I was in your home getting to know you. Fun.

Five Moms & A Blog said...

That was really fun to read. I love that you don't need to vacuum since you have 5 kids!!! ;)

Now I want 5 kids.

I agree with you on the toilet thing. Honestly, it is word verification. Yours right now is Dedysmet?? Im gonna have to think on that one!!


Mich said...

Enjoyed the fun facts of you and of course the picture is adorable.

Karen said...

Cute questionnaire...I laughed aloud at your answer to
"Do you have a housekeeper?"

Thanks for sharing this....

Kelly's Ideas said...

Loved learning a little about you! I love candles too! Great pictures!

Kristin said...

Hey! I just had to come over and thank you for being so sweet and for your order at my boutique! Thank you so much for helping me to raise money for Zach. I was heading to the post office later today, so I'll have them off to you today :)

Coming over here again reminded me that I wanted to do your fun questionnaire on my blog too. Ha!

Have a great day!



You have a beautiful family. I have enjoyed your blog. I am a MOM and Homeschool Teacher to my 7 blessings. I have been happily married for 24 years. Hope to catch up on your posts soon. Blessings,

Mocha Momma said...

Outhouses, ugh! Well I guesss they are better than nothing.

The new kind are better. This particular campground had the newer kind last time I was there, several years ago.

Hello Christy Rose,
I am wondering who comes up with some of these questions!
One thing’s for sure, we know more about you, like what color your bathroom shower curtain is…Ha! Ha!
I like my home very warm in the winter…and I live in California, so you know I am spoiled. On days we can burn…there are restrictions now…I keep my home a toasty 78 degrees inside. I LOVE that fire!
