Filling in the Blank with the (Un)Experienced Mom, Tamara is asking today-
If you had spare money that had to be donated to 3 charities they would be-
- Farthest Corners– Is a ministry involved in supporting the persecuted people of Burma.
- Polaris Project – modern-day slavery is the second largest criminal industry in the world. It makes me shiver to think that this is really happening in our world and in our country
- Remote Area Medical – Provides free dental, medical and vision to the needy here in the US. Doctors volunteer their time. Jon and I saw this on Dateline or 60 minutes and were moved to tears at what many people live without in our very own country.
Fragments with Mrs. 4444
Once again they are talking snow for our area. Up to 12 inches that's a lot for this area and I know again this doesn't seem like much to my bloggy friends to the North. People are already driving stupid and nothing, I said NOTHING has fallen from the sky yet. UFTA!! I'm nervous because I need to get milk on the way home from work; it's likely to be all gone since people might be snowed in for a day or two.
We still don't have a tree; really after all that talk about now wanting to repeat our previous years here we are the week before Christmas with no tree. I'm quite bummed. My visions of going to the tree farm and picking the tree, taking pictures, making lasting family memories have been shot down like a skeet. Jon and Dade are going to Costco tonight so as to avoid the aforementioned blizzard of '09
I really, REALLY, REALLY want to win Arizona Momma's contest. As of yesterday there were only three people in the running 2 have two votes and 1 has only one vote. I am the 1 with 1 (Thanks Brianne!!!), it conjures up memories of being picked last in every sport in elementary school. Please wash away those dreadful feelings for me. Click here, leave a referral (comment) for me to win.
5QF - with my new best friend Mama M.
Which boygroup did you like most in your teens?
I was over the top obsessed with posters, magazines, every last bit of my baby-sitting money was spent of NKOTB for 3+ years of my life.
Do you do Christmas cards, letter, photos, nuthin', all of the above?
Nada, it's embarassing. I would love to have my stuff together enough to get a photo card out, but no. I talked about it here, this is one area in my life where I did not get organizational skills from my mother.
In you could meet one celebrity who would it be and why?
I gotta say I'm having a hard time with this one. I'm not really the celebrity swooning type...maybe I'll be back with an update later.
Favorite thing to cook with (i.e. stainless, non-stick, Dutch Oven, microwave, debit card...or, perhaps, a couldron, etc.)?
We got a set of Emeril's stainless steel cookware apparently by accident when we got married. I really like the way it cooks, but apparently you are suppose to season fancy-shmacy pots and pans like that. We didn't so we tend to have sticking issues which causes the need for lots of scrubbing after use.
What is the one thing you wear the most, besides your unmentionables?
My sweatpants, I LOVE my sweatpants. Do you remember Stegmans? Slip on wool shoes all the rage before Uggs, yeah I have some that are pretty much the only shoes I wear in winter unless there is snow.
