and Boy, Girl and A Pug (such a funny blog) both asked me:
In 2006 - we played TN when we were both ranked in the top 10 and College Game Day finally came to Fayetteville. It was just such a fun day and such a good game. Darren McFadden had HIS day that day and I could not have been more excited when we beat the volunteers!
#3: Zanutto's (Canadians, eh? with a cancer survivor precious son) asked me if I spoke any other languages?
Well - besides Southern. (ha!) I took French in high school - because after all - it is SUCH a useful language. I had to take a language in college so I took French by correspondence. Yes - that was a good idea. So the answer is oui oui - I parle vous a little French. (actually no - can't remember any French).
#4: This cute family lives in Texas - Ashley asked me what I thought of Oprah and her new church? You can go on her blog and see the video about it. My mom just sent me this link yesterday. I used to watch Oprah a lot but I haven't in a long time and won't anymore. It's scary to think of the millions of people who believe in everything she says and she is so lost. It hurts me that she may lead so many people astray. For me - what I believe is John 14:6 - Jesus said "I am THE way, THE truth and THE light - NO ONE comes to the Father but through me". and "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God--not by works, so that no one can boast." Ephesians 2: 8-9
#5: Lauren (she actually lives in my same town but we have never met - she has 2 precious children and is a great decorator) - Her question CRACKED me up. She wanted to know what kind of skincare I use because she thought my skin looked good. This is funny because I am probably more self consious about my skin than I am about anything. I have TERRIBLE skin. I had oily skin and frequent breakouts as a teenager and spent too much time in the sun and it is just in bad shape. I notice people's skin more than I do anything else because that is the one thing I wish I could change the most. I just use Cetaphil to wash my face. I don't have a good skincare regime. I do have a whole Arbonne set that I use when I make time to do it.
6. Jamie's question made me laugh the hardest. Jamie and I grew up together. She is probably the kindest, gentlest, most geniune person I know. She is just possibly the most perfect person I know. She wanted to know what my favorite Bill Gaither song was?
Our families used to go to a MILLION Gaither concerts when we were growing up. Jamie and I and my brother and her sister could quote them word for word. Jamie - I think it would be "It is finished". :-)
7. The most popular question BY FAR (asked by 8 different people) is what do I do for a living? It's funny to me that you have wondered about this.
First of all - I majored in Finance in college. I started out pre-med for 3 semesters and after I nearly flunked out - switched to business. I don't talk about my job on here because that has always seemed like a bad idea. But I'll tell you what I do. I live in the home of the headquarters of the world's largest retailer. (You can try and figure out what that is). Every Company who sells product in their stores has an office here. I work for one of the suppliers. Part of my job is as analyst to help our sales guys determine how we are doing and forecast sales going forward. The other part of my job is I am a category manager. I work with a buyer at the retailer to gauge his overall sales and together we determine how things should go on the shelves and I draw that up. I enjoy my job a lot. I worked at the retailer for 8 years before coming to the company I am now at and I've been here going on 5 years.
To answer another question - my dream would be to stay home when I have a baby and if we can work it out - I will. I know there are so many moms out there who would love to stay home and it's just not possible and there are some that just would rather work. I don't think any choice is wrong. My mom stayed home with us until I was in junior high and I'm very thankful for that. Sometimes I can't imagine how my life would be to stay home after working for almost 14 years but I know that I would love being a full time wife and mom. I don't, however, want to stay home forever. Once our children go to school - I want to go back to work (if I don't HAVE to go back earlier than that). But I want to have a child friendly job. My three DREAM jobs are: Lunch lady (and I'm SO serious) at my child's school, school secretary or to work at my church.
Ya'll have given me so many interesting questions to answer!!!! I'm going to have to stretch these out over the next few days!!!!
