more {me} answers.

** When are we going to Target and Michael's next?
Actually... I think I might be going tomorrow! Very, very quick trips, though. So a trip with a friend will be necessary soon! =) 

** How is a perfect day spent?
It depends on the day and my mood. I always thought I was an extrovert, but then a friend said that it is really determined by how you recharge. So now I think I'm a social introvert. =) I LOVE spending time with friends, but I also need some alone time. Time on the computer, time in the loft being crafty, time reading or watching TV. If I don't have that alone time every once in awhile, I start to go a little nuts. I actually choose to eat lunch in my classroom every couple weeks. Just for the quiet. I usually do a little something teachery, but then spend time on Facebook or something mindless. You know, for my long 20 minute lunch. 

So depending on the day and my mood... I might choose to be alone... or with friends... or with my family. How's that for a straight answer? 
 Remember this happy alone day during Corey's cattle sale? Just what I needed! 

 But this Abilene road trip with friends was a perfect day, too! 

And fun stuff like a family trip to the drive-in will definitely be repeated! 

** What is your favorite holiday and why?
I love Easter. I love the music and the songs and the fact that Jesus rose
 from the dead. I really like Christmas, too, but Easter is my favorite. 

{one of my favorites}
I get choked up every year when we sing "Then bursting forth, in glorious day, up from the grave He rose again!"

** What is your favorite blog or website to visit?
I'm having lots of fun on Pinterest right now. So many fun ideas. It just makes me happy to look at my boards. Happy things that make me smile... all in one organized place. What's not to love?!

Cute things to make... 

Fun colorful eye candy... 

And even super cute little hedgehogs!  (He's on my "Makes me smile" board)  =)

I have 79 blogs I follow in my Google reader. Some are real life friends and neighbors... some are strictly blog friends, but the kind that I know exchange Christmas cards with and plan to visit someday... some are teacher blogs... some are crafty blogs. I know there are hundreds of blogs out there that I would love and be able to get ideas from. I just don't have time to follow them all. I could spend so much time on the computer if I wanted to. 

** If you had 15 minutes left to live what would you want to say" to your readers , or your friends , or your kids, or your family?
Oh my. This is deep. Too deep for me to really answer right now. 
Really the only thing my kids, friends or family needs to know is that I love them. 
Really, really love them. More than anything. 
I love them and I am so, so grateful for each and every one of them. 
That's all. 

(and I like my readers an awful lot, too!) =)

** i want to see your home tour! :)
Someday, Jenn! I promise! I have some cleaning to do first! (and some organizing... and decrapifying... ) But someday! 

But I'll share these happy pictures now. My neighbor, Jenn, took these from her front porch. Ours is the 3rd porch down... the one with the porch swing. Isn't this is a perfect little "small town America" picture? I love it.
