Because I love a good parade!

I stumbled across this fun parade yesterday and thought I'd join in. Not because I didn't have anything else to post but I just knew you all would want to know even more about me then you already do. Right? Yes?
Alright I confess. She's having some fabulous giveaways and I wanted my shot to win. But you still get to learn more about me in the process! Isn't that exciting? Mmm hmm!

So out of the goodness of my heart, I'm going to answer the very thought provoking questions that Abigail came up with.

1. What's your favorite time of the day, and why?
That's easy. My favorite time of day is early morning before anyone is up. It gives me some much needed quiet time and coffee!

2. If health wasn't an issue, what food could you live off of?
My Homemade Pizza and chocolate!

3. If you could have one wish granted (besides wishing for more wishes), what would it be?
Hmmmm.....just one wish? This is hard. I would probably have to say that I would wish for all our loved ones to come to Christ.
But having a load of money would come in handy too! Sorry, I had to say it cause I was thinking it!
4. What's one thing that you get teased about a lot?
I'm 6 foot tall. I don't get teased much! LOL!

5. If you could choose one movie, book, or TV show to spend your life in, which would you pick?
what type of character would you be?
I would probably want to be Lizzie from Pride and Prejudice. She never had to clean or cook and she ended up with a rich bachelor! ( I should note that I'm perfectly happy with my life now! LOL!)

6. If you could have one talent that you don't already have, what would it be?
I would love to be able to play the piano perfectly!

7.If money were no object, where would you go on vacation?
I would love to go to Hawaii.

8. If you were an awesome singer, which genre would you sing?
Definitely RAP! Oh I'm so kidding. I hate rap music. I'd love to sing Contemporary Christian or Country.
9. If you could have a $10,000 shopping spree to one store, what would it be?
I see some people are putting Amazon because it covers everything. But is it a store? If I had to pick an actual store that I could walk into, I'd probably pick Bed Bath and Beyond or Costco!

10. If you could live in any point in time, when would it be?
I would like to be a rich princess in medieval times!

11. If every outfit in your wardrobe had to be one color, what would it be?
RED!(I have nothing that resembles this in my closet! LOL!)

12. If you were one of the seven dwarves, which one would you be?
Happy! Definitely Happy!

13. What's the last album you listened to?
Album, like in record? Cause that would have had to have been my 1973 Disney record with all the old Disney songs on it. And I think the last time I listened to that was about 8 years ago.

14. What's something we'd be surprised to know about you?
Let's see. What could possibly surprise you about me? How about the fact that my 3rd child weighed 11lbs 2.5 oz at birth and I only pushed for 4 mins. Does that surprise you? Well it did me, my doctor my husband and my best friend!

Now why don't you play along! Join the parade!


  1. Yeah, I don't think I would be making fun of you either. I'm quite short compared to you. I'm vertically challenged. 5'4"

    So you play piano then? cool!

  2. Your husband should be so elated that you didn't have that babe at home in the bathtub or en route to the hospital!?

  3. I loved reading your answers Kim. I knew you were tall but wow; 6 feet. You must have a great view. I love that you're tall. Clothes always look better on tall people.:)

    Love you,

  4. OMG -- 11 lb 2.5 oz!!! I thought my 9 lb 10 oz girl was a biggie (and she truly was). And I am only 5'3". And I didn't push at all; it was like she was on a water slide.

    Okay! Too much information there. Anyway, I'm really impressed by 11 lb 2.5 oz. Did you get an award? You should.

  5. Ok that last answer got me! My mouth is still on the floor! 11lbs. 2.5 oz!!! Sweet niblets!! That's a HUGE baby!! Yep ~ surprised me! I am thinkin I will have to join in on this parade tomorrow !

    Have a blessed Wednesday

  6. I'm with you on the Costoc bit and the color red..lol.

    It was nice to get to know you a bit better.

  7. Sandy, love the water slide analogy...beats a sincere relative telling me before I had my first baby that labor was like having a big bowel movement! I'd be all skin and bones if 8 pounds came out every time!?

    Congrats Kim on your 11 pounder!!

  8. That was fun...I had to join in on that one. :)

  9. What a fun idea for a carnival...I mean parade...cool!

  10. Holy Moly I thought SM was big at 9.3 pounds. Wowzers.
    I would sing Christian contemporary music too.
    I love the early morning too.

  11. 11lbs 21/2 oz??? Oh my! And you pushed for 4 minutes? You must have one very strong uterus my girl!!!

    I would go to Hawaii also and I would be a Happy dwarf too. :)

  12. Fun to read this! And I am SO with you on #1... early morning and coffee! :)

  13. Some similarities and some differences! I like red and #2 sounds yummy to me! I am only 5'5" so I better not tease you. #6 - I wish I could sing! I can carry a tune, but I don't have a singer's voice, ya know? And #7 - Let's go. We should meet there. I was teasing hubs 'cause I got an e-mail full of great specials for Hawaii so I forwarded it to him in case he needed it to make my birthday plans - LOL! SO not happening! :)

    Big #14-is-a-shocker-you-must-be-an-Amazon-woman-(kidding)hugs to you! Have a wonderful evening friend!

  14. Loved reading your answers. I am 6ft tall too! We should start a club :)

  15. My goodness, I thought my 9 1/2 pounder was a big guy. Granted, you are over 1/2 a foot taller than I, but STILL. My word! :)

  16. You have a fun blog.
    I am your newest follower.
    Following from top 100 Christian Women's blog and from the blog parade.

  17. Cute blog, enjoyed your answers.

  18. Hi Kim! Loved reading your answers and getting to know about you some. I know about big babies... my second son was 8#11oz. Not as big as yours, but big enough to be sure! I agree on the rap music thing... ugh. LOL! Nice to meet you! ♥


I really appreciate the time you take to leave a comment. Thank you!
