Lisa asked and I am tellin'!

Lisa from Adventures in Jujuboo has given me a great set of questions to answer...she also has a great blog so make sure to visit her!

Question one:We all know how much you enjoy traveling and your dream job would be to become the new Samantha Brown. I want to know the one place you have gone to that you would go to over and over again. Where would you never go again? Where have you not gone that you want to go? (ok, that was 3 questions, but they all fall under the same category)
We would go to Palm Springs, California over and over again! We have a friend who owns an amazing home there and we love the scenery and the weather! I don't think there is any place I would never visit again...I am not comfortable in cold places but I would still go there!
I have been to Europe but My Hubby hasn't...I would love to see Europe with him and we would love to see Alaska!
Question two:I saw how much fun you had planning the recent engagement party at your house. Have you ever thought of doing catering or party planning as a career? I would love to plan events or seminars and especially to have them at exotic places!
The food aspect would probably be too stressful for me...I enjoy feeding my family and people I care about though!
Question three: We have a running joke in my family that when the smoke alarm goes off my mom is done cooking. She ALWAYS burns the bread or the rolls. I grew up thinking garlic bread was black and very, very crunchy. We call it Cajun style. You look completely at home in the kitchen, even when your hubby is in your way. Have you ever cooked anything that turned out totally awful and no one ate it?
I asked my Hubby this question because I can't remember anything I made no one liked and he said that it would be true that that hasn't occurred! That may not be a reflection of my cooking as much as my family's style of eating...Tee Hee! I am a vegetarian now but I still make the foods that they enjoy!

Question four:I know if I asked you which book changed your life or gave you a new perspective I know you would say the Bible. So, I will ask the second most important book that you have read in your lifetime. Tell me why I should read it.
I actually wouldn't have said the Bible (shock, huh?) The reason is... I was raised in a home where I was always introduced to God, Jesus, Holy Spirit and The Bible on a daily basis. My faith just while I think the Bible is beautiful and I mean no disrespect when I say's like a dictionary or a map or an atlas to me. I am reading it daily but I have my perspective changed through prayer and meditation!
A book that did change my life and my perspective dramatically was The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman, my marriage was very troubled and I honestly didn't think my husband loved me even when he said he did. This book conveyed a simple message that we all receive and give love differently based on how we were raised and other factors. It is written from a Christian perspective and it changed my marriage, my parenting and my life in a very dramatic way and for the better!

Question five:OK, that last question was a big one, so I will ask a simple one. What is your favorite color and why?
Simple answer Red, but I like it in a combination of other colors that do change!
I did like Red, khaki and beige. Now I like Red, Black, pale blue and yellow with some khaki and white!

Now it's your turn if you would like me to interview you just leave a comment and I will email you the questions!
Here's the directions:
1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."
2. I will respond by emailing you five questions. (I get to pick the questions).
3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

And ... The Chapman book was a great read. I read it so many years ago and passed it on to friends and it disappeared again. It should be required reading for all.

I love Five Love Languages. Aaron and I read it during our first few years of marraige and I still remember it. I totally understand the way he loves and I know he understands how I love. That book along with Personalities Plus taught me more than anything other book. I am glad we read them during our first years together.

Thanks for answering Ronda. :)
