Reverse Q & A

Wednesday, July 8, 2009

I have 275 posts on this blog so I am guessing you all know me pretty well by now! Lately I have been trying to get to know you as readers a little better. I recently added a widget to my sidebar that tracks who has links to my blog on their blogs and I like to click over to those blogs so I can read a little about their lives. I've been doing the same with those that leave comments and have their own blogs. I have also been trying to leave my own comments and thoughts after others comment in my comment section in effort to be able to develop relationships with some of my readers.
Anyways I thought of another way to get to know some of you...if you want me to know you! I know there are a few silent lurkers!

Remember these posts ? Now its YOUR turn! Answers the following questions in the comment section so I can get to know you better! I have allowed anonymous comments again for this post in case you don't have your own account but leave your name at least cuz that's kinda the point....to get to know you!! :)
1) where are you from? (you dont have to answer this one if your not comfortable sharing)
2.) how long would you say you've been reading my blog?
3) what's you favorite color?
4.) what are your hobbies?
5.) married?, single?, engaged?, dating? how long?
6.) any kids? what are there names and what ages? include angel babies
7.) anything I should know about you/your family?
8.) whats your favorite song on the radio right now?
9.) what is one thing you want to purchase for YOURSELF? big or small! mine is an iPhone in case your wondering!
10.) what were you doing before you got online?
I am SUPER excited to read your answers and get to know some of you better!!

I normally just lurk, but how could I not out myself on a post like this

1) I was born and raised in Utah but now technically live in Atlanta, GA although we are rarely there
2.) Maybe six months, or more, not really sure, a while
3) Green
4.) Reading, Celebrity Gossip, and crafty things
5.) Married 4 years
6.) Skye just turned three
7.) My husband works for FEMA (they deal with disasters) and I am a stay at home mom, so we pretty much just travel from one disaster to another and live out of hotels while my husband is working so we can still be together, hence why we are rarely home
8.) I don't listen to the radio much, my favorite song right now is How He Loves by David Crowder
9.) I could go for a new wardrobe lol
10.) I walked on the treadmill and then shares a bowl of ice cream with my husband, kind of counterproductive huh

This was fun, I love reading your blog and most likely will comment more often now :)

Married for 9 years in 2 weeks.

We are pretty normal. Nothing overtly remarkable...

Don't really listen to music radio much anymore - I'd have to say it would be the bumper music to my favorite talk radio program.

Right now it would be a Fossil purse - the Harper Shopper. Looks like it would be an awesome purse/diaper bag.

Getting my day started!

By the way = I began following your blog from GummyBear to Sweet Baby and can't even remember how I began following theirs. I have prayed for you both. Grayden is such a cutie! And I LOVE LOVE LOVE the name! (My favorie Color!)

1)I'm from Daphne, Al (the very deep south!) but within the last couple of months I moved to Pensacola, Fl.
2)I think I have been reading since October maybe. I found your blog through someone else I blog-stock (I think it was Kelly Stamps).
3)I'm a sucker for beach colors (light blues, greens, peaches. I think brighter colors make people happier.
4)I love just sitting on the beach (don't really know if you would consider that a hobbie or not!) Decorating the house, salt water fishing, I am "trying" to learn how to knit, and reality tv (I watch it enough for it to be a hobby!)
5)I've been with my boyfriend for about 2 years now. He is a yankee from NY and I was raised in the deep south so its been interesting. He contantly makes fun of my accent.
6)no human babies yet. just two dogs.
8)I love the new Pitt Bull song and Lady Gaga. I know I have very odd taste in music. If I can dance to it then I usually love it.
9)I would love to get a new car. I've been looking at the new lexus and infinite convertibles, but I'm still not ready to give up my 12 yr old honda and I don't want the payment! But a new iphone would be cool too!
10)I am currently at work so I am supposed to be "working"! I was actually on the phone with my dad. He is on his way to the airport to pick up my brother. My little brother has been in Iraq since Sept and is coming home on leave for a couple of weeks.

I am at work so I have to make this quick.
I am Tamara from FL. I found your blog, i think from Google Reader right before you and your sister had surgery. I am 27 and a single mama to my adopted son from Guatemala. He just turned 2 and has been home 8 months now. He is my buddy!!! It was certainly the best thing I have ever done. At 24 I started the paperwork to adopt...didn't wait for Mr. Right! Congrats to you!! Being a new mom is really really great! (I just wish I could stay home with him!)

Hi,
You have gotten a great response, I am excited, will have to go back and read all these answers.

1.) Been from Decatur, Illinois since 1970, prior to that I grew up in the Arthur, Illinois area. The heart of Amish community.

2.) A long time!!!! I love reading your blog, I would say shortly after I started blogging last Sept.

3.) Red.... I never wore red...but i love it and lately have loved my red shirts.

4.) Hobbies.... I love to quilt, crochet (Remember all the hats I sent you?), plastic canvas, watching TV and simply chillen.

5.) Married since Sept. 9, 1978 (A lot longer then people thought we would make it.)

6. One child- Kimberly Anne , born in 1980 and at this time she is pregant with my first grandchild due in Jan. 2010.

7. Oh, my that depends what you want to know. I could tell you tons. I grew up as a Mennonite in the Arthur area, but am not a member of Moundford Free Methodist Church. Love children, and love reading blogs , making new friends.

8. I don't listen to much radio.
If I play music in the car I play a cd from Sheila Walsh (Women of Faith speaker).

9. What item would I purchase. I would love to have a RV / house and land to put it on...paid in full...ya right...at my age I'll probably never be out of debt.

10. Billing customers for the air conditioner purchases....yes, I should be finishing up for the day.
So, Guess I'd better get busy and finish it up.

This is a good idea... thanks for thinking of it.
Blessings
Verna

Hi Katie,
I live in Holland, MI. I've been reading your blog for about a year. My favorite color is periwinkle. I have been married for almost 9 years. Kevin and I have 3 little ones: Gavin, AnneHope, and Gibson.
My favorite song on the radio right now is What Do I Know of Holy by Addison Road. Love it! I would also really like an iPhone and a new laptop:), but seriously don't need them.
Hope you are getting some good snuggles from your little G. His WW picture is adorable and he looks like he has really grown and changed already. Enjoy!

I'm a newcomer to your blog, thanks to the BlogFrog community leader program; you're not on my list, but my other blogging half ('Ethel') is taking care of those, and I'm here because I happened upon it the other night (thanks to Blog Hop).

Before I get either of us too much more confused(!), I, too, have an angel baby. Jeffrey was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) and earned his wings at 5-1/2 months.

I'm married (35 years!), and we also have 2 college 'kids,' Matthew and Katie. We live in Jefferson, NC.

Can't get any radio stations where we live. Can't remember hobbies, except that I used to read and do like to work in the yard. I'm not sure the yard likes it, though!

I love colors, period!

Purchase something for myself? Way too many bills to think about that :)

I look forward to snooping more on your blog when I have a little time!

Lucy

PS - I don't think any of these follows the order of your questions. Maybe I should mention I have menopausal ADD :)

PS #2 - We have a wonderful family :)
