7 Random Things about me

Holly did this over on her blog and thought it looked fun.  If you blog – do the same – it’s fun reading about each other.  I think I might do one for everyone if my family.  

1.  My favorite place in the whole world is the beach!  I love the warm temperatures, the breeze off the ocean, the sand, the salt water, everything about it.  I have only visited the North Carolina and South Carolina beaches.  Been to Virginia Beach a couple of times to visit family and friends but didn’t go to the beach while I was there.  My favorite is probably Isle of Palms, SC.  I think God lives there – it’s beautiful.
2.  I taught Home Economics (food service and nutrition) at Grayson County High School for about 2 months.  Liked the students – hated the class.  I came into the job without any resources and very little experience in the food service part.  My degree from VT was very broad and I didn’t even know how to operate the equipment in the industrial kitchen.  Guess my heart just wasn’t in it.  I was only 23 and didn’t have a clue what I was doing.  Turning in that resignation was one of the hardest things I have ever done.  
3.  We lived in Winston Salem, NC for a year after we got married.  Wonderful city – still go about 2 or 3 times a month to shop.  We were members at Calvary Baptist Church – amazing church – we learned so much while we were there.  It is an example of how a church that is 50 years old can keep growing, keep being relevant and keep reaching people for Jesus.
4.  Our kids are home educated.  I don’t blog about it a lot.  Not sure why – I love my kids and am passionate about them but not really about home education.  It works for us right now and I wouldn’t trade the time I spend with my kids for anything.  You won’t find any militant home schooling opinions here.
5.  We live in a small town but I have always thought I would like to move to a bigger place.  Everytime we visit somewhere I am forever saying  – ” I would like to live here”.  I guess I think the grass is greener on the other side.  There are some wonderful things about living in a small town.  It is an awesome place to raise a family and close enough to Winston or Charlotte to visit often.  Could we just get a Starbucks? 
6.  My favorite food is Mexican.  Pretty much anything Mexican.  Chipotle has the best guacamole in the world.  Wish we had one here but we do have a great local mexican resteraunt in Galax, El Parian,  that is almost as good.  They have great food and great service and it’s always super fast.
7.  I am married to the most wonderful man in the world.   We are going on 13 years of wedded bliss and it has been a great ride.  I can honestly say I have never regretted marrying my high school boyfriend for a minute.    He’s not perfect and neither is our marriage but God has blessed us beyond what we deserve.  Can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with him!
