I did an interview!!!!!!

No, seriously, I did! With Miss Lacey over at A Thinking Place!!! And boy, did we have fun with it. :D
Hop on over to her blog and take a look!!

But before I dive into my questions for her, here is my picture for the 3rd Photo Challenge.

3. your pet {don't have one? borrow one!}

Yep. Really. This is my picture. You see, I went outside to get an epic picture of my pup. And that is just what I got. ;) Pretty awesome, just saying. ^_^

Ok, now on to the interview! Enjoy!!!


Me: Imagine a penguin walked through the door wearing a poncho. What would you do?
Lacey: Laugh until my sides hurt. And then give him a hug and fly him back home because penguins would never survive in California.
Me: If I came over for dinner, what would you make me?
Lacey: I’d make one of my favorite things: lasagna. Because I use a secret ingredient that nobody knows about besides my family and I love making it and seeing if the people I make it for can tell what it is. Hehe ;D
Me: I know this is like asking you to pick a favorite star in the heavens, but what is your favorite Bible verse?
Lacey: I don’t have one favorite. But one of many would be Matthew 11:28-30 – 28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
Me: What is the most interesting place you have ever been?
Lacey: In Sacramento, I got to sit in on a legislative meeting at the capitol building. They were debating about the budget (go figure) and how much money schools should get. That was interesting. But I’ve also been in caves and mountain peaks, which are far more interesting.
Me: You just moved, albeit not far. Do you like you new house?
Lacey: I think so. It’s definitely a huge change… it’s smaller and in town. I’ve always lived in the country so I am not used to living so close to other people. I don’t really like that part of it. But the boy across the street is pretty cute so there’s that ;)
Me: What is the most extraordinary thing God has ever done in your life?
Lacey: One “big” thing occurred three years ago. My sister and I were in a car wreck and would have died or been seriously injured if our car was pointing just a little more in one direction. Somehow I managed to point us towards a fence and we barreled into that instead. I remember lying there in my car in shock and people were running around and suddenly this wild-haired man ran up to me and told me not to move, that his wife is a nurse and she was calling an ambulance. I just remember looking at him and thinking he looked really crazy and like he just rolled out of bed, but I trusted him so I didn’t move. Later at the hospital I found out that if I had moved I would have screwed up my spine. I asked my sister and other people about the guy, but nobody knew who he was or remembered seeing him. I don’t know if he was a real person or something else… but I know he was there for a reason and Someone was looking out for me.
Me: Do you like to read? If so, do you like modern book or older books better?
Lacey: I like a good mix of both, but I think I haven’t read enough modern books to give a good judgment! J
Me: How many siblings do you have?
Lacey: Five. I’m number six
Me: Are you a people person or would you rather be at home?
Lacey: Depends on the people and my mood. I am definitely a homebody but I wouldn’t pass up a chance to spend time with best friends and family. I have to be in a particular mood to be willing to go out and meet new people.
Me: ‘A Thinking Place' is a title that definitely inspires one to pause and reflect. What kind of thinking do you tend to do?
Lacey: Oh, lots of things. I worry a lot about my family members; their safety and their health. I also like to think I’m a pretty introspective person… I soak in a lot of what people say around me and consider their opinions and perspectives. I try to think outside the box and I think I’m pretty creative in my thoughts. I think about God, but I think about myself too much.
Me: Are you dreamy? Or maybe more practical?
Lacey: I definitely have strong creative/dreamy tendencies. My English teacher started laughing at me once during class last year because I was spacing out staring out the window at an airplane. Haha. But, I also tend to be organized and practical as well. I don’t know. It’s a toss-up!
Me: Who doesn’t love music? What is your favorite song?
Lacey: Again, don’t have a favorite. I’m a romantic so I love most love songs. I’m really into super jazzy and swing stuff; anything like Sinatra, Como, Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Miles Davis… yeah. I also love classic rock. Stuff like Fleetwood Mac, Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Bruce Springsteen, John Mellencamp. My heart is in older music :)
Me: Do you enjoy quotes? What’s a good one you like to live by?
Lacey: Who doesn’t? I don’t have any that I tell myself every day or anything like that. One that I saw the other day that I really like is, “We must be our own before we can be anothers.” –Emerson.
Me: Sweet or sour?
Lacey: Sweet! I beat myself up about that for awhile when I was a teenager, because it seemed like all the cool kids preferred sour candy. And I really didn’t get it. But now I embrace my sweet tooth. Bring on the cookehs.
Me: What is your favorite color?
Lacey: Green!
Me: Do you have a dream job? What makes you want to do *that*?
Lacey: Yup. Baker. I want to do that because I love baking, and food brings people together.

I had soooo much fun doing this with her! If anyone else would like to do a swap-interview, just shoot me a comment and let me know! :D :D

  2. Here is my day three. <3

  3. I enjoyed this interview immensely, it was well written, I could literally hear your two voices speaking. Thanks for making me smile!

    1. I'm so glad!!! :D Hehe. You're welcome. :D


I'm sincerely wondering if you are going to comment. Given you just read that blog post (or maybe skim read, at best, or maybe you've just skipped to the bottom). But, either way, whether you read it or not, NOW you have no doubt that I am crazy, are wondering if I am worthy of your time, and if it even matters that you say something. BUT, it does!!! Drop me a line! Can't tell you I will always respond coherently, but I WILL respond! And the comments... Well, they rather make my days. <3
