I'm NOT Going to Introduce Myself

...I've changed my mind.

*Updated: No one really took any guesses to my "questionnaire" (except for Linda) so I'm just going to post the answers. (Previously posted on 3/26/09.)

This idea came from Linda at Ivory Blossom. I thought this was a wonderful idea. So, can you introduce me?

1. Do I have any brothers or sisters?
Yes, I'm the oldest of three girls
2. What is my favorite sport to WATCH?
soccer & college basketball
3. What is my ancestry? (this one is tricky)
I'm half Dutch and my dad is adopted so I don't know what the rest of me is. ;)
4. What would I order at MacDonald's?
An ice cream cone and fries. There's something about dipping that hot salty french fry into ice cold sweet cream. Yumm-O!
5. Do I play any instrument? (what instrument?)
I played violin from 4th-8th grade; played bells and chimes in high school, but I took piano from 1st grade through 8th out of all of them it's mostly the piano.
6. Have I ever had any pets? (what animal?)
I guess my first pet was a poodle named Snuggles. And we had a cat named Sibbey (she was my favorite).
7. What's my most-hated household chore?
Mopping: just when you get it clean, someone spills.
8. Have I ever lived abroad?
Nope. I went to China with my husband's family for 10 days but that's my only "overseas" trip.
9. How long have I been a Christian?
I was blessed to have grown-up in a Christian household. I made Profession of Faith when I was a junior in high school. But it wasn't until after I got married that I really turned my life over to the Lord. Mostly I needed to let go of my control-issues. I have a wonderful husband who enabled me to do that. So, I guess I've always been a "Christian" but I've been a true believer and follower for 6 years.
10. What's my favorite dessert?
Cheesecake or Chocolate Brownies

Play along and give Linda some love by linking to her site.

1. I'm guessing two sisters?
2. Uhmm.. american football? (only based on the fact that you're from the US.. hehe)
3. At least a part is Dutch.. and ehmm.. perhaps english and scottish or german?
4. A big mac menu.. and a balloon :P
5. You'll probably play.. uhmm.. keyboard?
6. I'm thinking dogs.. perhaps even two or three at a time
7. Cleaning the toilet, since you filled that in on my page ;)
8. I don't think so?
9. How about.... 15 years?

in my h.s. yearbook i am quoted as saying "the good life is...french fries in a vanilla cone."
this past weekend my husband and i got away together. one evening we went out at 9:00 p.m. for ice cream, and when we were done i told him i needed fries! so at 10:00 we were in a restaurant sharing a basket of fries (and onion rings, i have no self-control) oh the luxury of time without kids.
all that to say..YUMM-O!

Linda said...

I got the first one right!! :D
How cool is that.. hehe

I'm so jealous you can play the violin.. I'd love to be able to do that, but lessons are soooooo expensive.. ;)

And you mean you'd actually dip your fry into your ice-cream???? And I thought we Dutchies were crazy for smothering them in mayonaise :P

Greetings from the netherlands!

Me too on #7 UNTIL I just got the Bissell Steam Mop. I am so over the moon in love with it I have to post about it. I actually now love to mop and it's super easy.
