Twillypop Tagged With 22 Questions

Hi, all! I’m taking a short break from handmade/vintage Etsy Christmas posts today beacause recently I was tagged with 22 questions to answer from sweet Jessica of LoLa Vintage.

Here’s what I came up with:

1. Your hair? My hair is dark, dark brown…with bright red chunks hidden underneath

2. Your favorite food? ITALIAN! Well, I should probably say American Italian…spaghetti, sauce, meatballs, and love, love garlic bread!

3. Your favorite drink? Coffee, in all it’s guises.
4. Your dream/goal? …to serve God with all that I have, and in this season of my life I believe that means being the best wife and mom I can possibly be….

My sweet little “chickens”

5. Your hobby? I love to work out! (never once said i wasn’t crazy) I also love to read, but don’t start a book very often because I consider myself a problem reader…..once I start a book, I pretty much just read until it’s done, forsaking all other responsibility, which doesn’t lend itself well to my aforementioned goals…
6. Your fear? The thing that most fills my heart with fear is the thought of my children ever having to suffer, whatever form it may take. It’ one of the few things that makes me vascillate between utter paralyzing, chest gripping fear and peace in knowing and trusting the God who created and purposed them and loves them infinitely more perfectly than I ever could.
7. Where were you last night? Cuddled up with “best friend” on the couch watching a romantic comedy…I know, I live right on the proverbial edge….
8. Something you say all the time? “not an option!”..and I know that I must say this a lot because I overheard my age 4 son telling my age 8 son that not eating his broccoli was “not an option.”…..out of the mouths of babes…….

9. Something that you’re not? Without flaw.

10. Wishlist item? See : the top of my blog…..

11. Last thing you did? Just checked over my kids’ math pages….I teach them at home, for now……
12. What are you wearing? A pink super soft j. crew tee and my rippety Lucky Brand jeans

13. Your pets? We had a flourishing colony of sea monkeys until I knocked their little container over……they never saw it coming…..
14. Friends? More than I can count, near and dear to my heart,better than I deserve…….I’m blessed to count 2 sisters and my momma in that list……

15. Missing someone? My sweet, best friend from college who lives in Tenessee..
16. Something you’re not wearing? socks and shoes….I’m a barefoot gal whenever possible, which is why I have sasquatch feet…gross
17. Your favorite store? I hate to be a walking cliche, but I honestly love J. Crew…I’ve loved them since 7th grade….I can’t seem to get over it.
18. Your favorite color? You can’t possibly ask me to choose just one….pink. no, aqua. no, green…
19. The last time you cried? This morning, reading my friend’s blog post about her mom. Today is the one year anniversary of her death…….

20. When’s the last time you laughed? Every five minutes…I haven’t yet mentioned in all of this that I’m married to THE funniest man alive. I always tell him that I used to be considered funny until I married him. Now I constantly live in his comedic shadow.

21. One place that I go to over and over? The gym…….over and over and over and over….

22. Where do you eat? mostly at the table, as family with the kids…
Thanks for stopping in and for taking an interest…..stop in later in the week for more great Etsy shops and perhaps a killer recipe or two……..

  1. #8 and 13 crack me up! And what adorable kids you have!
    Also #4 is a beautiful answer. I’m learning it’s really THE most important thing. Thanks for answering the questions, Sara. Really enjoyed reading this. 🙂

  2. I was really looking forward to seeing those sea monkeys too. It must be all those ripped muscles that knocked into them.

    The one place I go over and over again is the bathroom. You must have better bladder control than me….. :O)

  3. ha, ha estrella……actually, i do have a steel bladder…..

  4. Ah Miss Sara…I love that we have a trait in common…I believe you called it “problem reader”. *sigh* My husband HATES it when a new, much-anticipated book comes into the house because there goes the daily chores! 🙂

    You are so beautiful…both inside and out…and I am glad to know you! 🙂

  5. J. Crew, coffee, and the gym: you are a girl after my own heart! Fun tag, darling!


  6. I love these tags as you get to learn something new and just a bit more about the girl behind the post. YOU are fabulous! what a heart and a proud Mom…which says a whole lot to me. You homeschool? Kudos to you…hard job but so rewarding. BTW, love your first pic too…hubs is a lucky guy!

  7. I loved reading these things about you (getting to know you better). Your chickens are cuties. I also LOVE my necklace…thank you so much.

    You seem like a wonderful person to know in person (and work out with).

    I love the song playing.

    you are super cool. sweet, pretty and funny.

    so fun to get to know you better!

  9. I really enjoyed reading your authentic voice in words! Coffee, books, working out and family. Wished you lived on my street in Berkeley!
