Random Dozen ONE 5/19/10

1. What is one really fast, know-by-heart "go-to" meal to fix in a pinch?

Most of what I make is know-by-heart meals, but if I need something really quick because we’re desperate, I’d probably through together some sort of breakfast-type dish or beef BBQ.
2. What is one item you won't leave home without. (Purse and license do not count.)

My credit card (I never carry cash and you just never know when you’re going to find a great deal!)
3. Where is one place you never tire of visiting?

Duh! Disney World (my regular blog readers know this is true!)

4. Share one factoid of your family's history.

I don’t know that we have anything all that interesting in our family tree.  Something I’ve always found sad is that my grandfather’s mother died when he was just a baby.  He was raised by an aunt.  My great-grandmother’s name was Lucy.  I had that name picked out as a “maybe” for Gracie.  I wish we would have had opportunity to use the name.
5. Complete this sentence: "Once upon a time I ...."

. . . thought I could do it all.  LOL
6. If you could win a one year's supply of anything, what would it be?

Frozen blended coffees (frappes) from Sheetz.  The addiction is costly, so if I could get them for free, well . . . I’d drink them daily!
7. "One quirky thing you may not know about me is ...."

. . . I like my berry jam WITH seeds.  I think this must be quirky because it’s becoming very hard to find it with the seeds in stores. I always buy it when we’re at Cracker Barrel!  But, this summer, I’m going to attempt to make my own.  I’ll let you know how that works out!
8. You have one dollar in your pocket. What will you buy?

Not much!  Depending on the day (salty or sweet fascination), it would either be a candy bar or a small bag of chips!
9. "One thing that always makes me laugh is ...."

. . . Ian.  He always puts a smile on my face.

10. What is one thing you could do today to help yourself reach a personal goal?

Turn off my computer. 

11. What is one thing you could do today to bless someone else?

Send our Crew selection announcements. :)
12. What is one thing you're looking forward to soon?

Going to Florida (we leave Friday)!

Disney World was my place to visit over and over too. Hope you have a great trip!!

Great Answers!

Hope you have an awesome trip. The countdown is the hardest part of leaving and the end of the vacation is the hardest part of coming back!

Hello Heidi
I came over from Cathy's blog TCKK Family blog after reading your comment there about WDW. I am in England but we have managed to fly over twice to visit WDW and we love it. I hope you have a wondeful time there next week. I hope you will be blogging about it when you get back. I would love to take part in your Destination Disney posts. Please let me know what to do to join in.
Best Wishes from England.

What topics have you already done? Is there anywhere I can see all your previous posts all together? I am sure I can think of some and I look forward to joining in with you in June.
I tried clicking on the Destination Disney tag in your footer but it only brought up the Packing post.

Lindsay-ann said...

Forget that! The posts just came up - it was just taking a long time.
I'm off to read them now and try to think of some new ones.
Have a great trip.

I just wizzed through them and they are wonderful. I can't wait to sit down and read through them properly. I WISH I had known about your blog earlier. I have two or three followers who are Disney mad too so I will blog about it nearer the time. My first idea is 'Disney Water'. Could be anything like like a lake, water ride or WDW hotel swimming pool. What do you think?
PS Have you got room for me in your suitcase?

I'm so glad we don't ride horses anymore -- those trips to Sheetz were costly! And that was before I knew about the frappes...but I'll remember that when we travel this summer.

DW is so not my thing, even though we've been 3 times! I can't stand crowds so I tend to seek out the roads less traveled. When I ran the Disney Marathon though, they definitely took us through the roads less traveled -- back by the water treatment plant for part of it!

Hi! I really like your new blog. I am just starting blogging again finally. I have officially moved to; but now with the homeschoolblogger upgrade I might send my feed to that blog to. I am glad this blog is working out for you! I have lots of friends trying out for the crew this year and it makes me miss those days :).
