Post Number 199!

There are “friends” who destroy each other,
but a real friend sticks closer than a brother.

Proverbs 8:24

Today I am in Los Angeles, humming in my heart all the songs from Wicked, the musical I went to see with my dear and wonderful friend, Tara, for her birthday. It was faaaaaaaaaaaantastic! The show was everything I hoped it would be, and EVEN MORE... which is pretty amazing since I had huge expectations. Visiting with Tari was tremendous, too. We've been friends for, what? 15 years? We met as preschool teachers- both fairly newly married, with no children. What a life has passed since then! We're VERY much alike, so you can imagine what time we stopped talking this morning and went to sleep. It could have been 3:30 am- but I'm not even certain it was that early. Poor dolly, I hear her downstairs right now getting ready to go to work. Which is so awful, cause I am all cozied up here and not even feeling all that guilty about it. She is such a strong, beautiful, special, talented lady- it's so cool to be allowed know her, and love her, and sleep in her delicious bed while she bunks up with her kids. That's love, people!

I have big plans for this incredible day!
  1. Blog a bit then go back to sleep in Tara's yummy vanilla-scented bed. mmmmmm.
  2. Go for a walk in her adorable little town-!
  3. Meet T for coffee at her fancy law office.
  4. Zip a couple of miles down the road to meet MAMA P. for lunch!
  5. Chat for a thousand hours, laughing until one of us says, "stop! I'm gonna Pee!"
  6. Drive home, all refreshed
  7. Go back to my life where I get to be considerably less but, because I have had a nice break, be grateful for my wonderful, amazing life.
Okay, my next post will be my 200th. To celebrate, let's play Truth or Dare. Without the dare part because I'm not a daring girl. So it's really Truth or Silence. haha. Ya'll ask the questions- silly or serious, and I'll try to answer with the most amount of truth allowable by law, God, and common sense. No holds barred... ask about my life, my past, present, future... something I've never explained, or explained well... something you always wondered about me, my blog, my family, my relationship with God... Whatever flips your cookie...

Go ahead: fire away!
(by the way, you should probably know that if nobody asks any questions, I will feel like the girl who didn't get asked to the prom (hello! 1989!) and I will fall into the depths of despair... probably never to blog again. It's on you.)

Mama P...lunch? L.u.c.k.y.! Give her a hug for me. question? What's a typical day in the life of His Girl? more...what are your desert island foods?


Suzanne said...

I had a hard time thinking of something to ask because you already share so much about yourself in your blog, so I'll just ask a silly one.

What's your favorite all time song? If you don't have a single song, what's your favorite all time band?

hsmomma5 said...

Well, I am kinda' new to your blog, so this may be sort of lame....

What is the best book you have ever read other than the Bible?

PJ said...

Meet Mama P for lunch?? Wow! Sounds like you're having a wonderful time. Question: If you had one month for vacation (money no object) where would you go? What would you do?

mer@lifeat7000feet said...

Well, I have two questions because I'm a rule-breaker.

1. What are your top five favorite movies of all-time? (if you can't come up with five, ten would be okay)

2. When are you moving to Colorado? :)

Enjoy your lovely day alone!

Tina said...

Okay, I have a couple of questions.
1. When was it that you EXACTLY decided you didn't like coffee?
2. When will you change your mind about the most delicious drink

care-in said...

Oh I wish I could think of a question...

CableMonkey said...

You went to the prom in 1999?

Do you like me or just put up with me because I am married to Tawnya?

DidiLyn said...

California....not that far from Oregon. In fact, we share a border.
So my question is:
When are you coming to visit?

Tracy said...

Hmmm... If I were to invite you over to dinner, what would you like me to make for you?

Quintlox said...

I got 2 questions.

1) Where does the "o" come from when you abbreviate the word "number"?

2) If you try to fail, and you succeed....what have you done?

Cindy-Still His Girl said...

I am SOOOOO jealous. Saw Wicked this winter; best show I've EVER seen. Can't wait to see it again!

Now I'm humming.... "Just not quite as popular as MEEEEEE!"

MyShilohRanch said...

Hi Daughtie,

How fun!

What is your earliest childhood memory?

What is your all-time favorite worship song and/or hymn?

Congrats on your 200th!

Love, Moomis

Beck said...

Questions! I love asking questions!
1. What books would you really recommend that I read?
2. What is your very favorite hymn?
3. What kind of sandwich is your favorite?

Sue said...

Well, in keeping with my whole stalking theme - who was your biggest high school crush?

Fran said...

If you could be famous who or what would you want to be???

Sheryl said...

Wow I want to do this on my blog but I think your readers are being way too kind. So since they have set the tone I guess I'll have to follow suit. Shoot!!

Question: If you knew you couldn't fail, what would you try?


Suzanne said...

Ok, after hearing the news today...what is it like to experience an earthquake?!? As a Texas girl, that would totally freak me out!

Becky said...

Congrats on your almost200th!

As for questions...What would your perfect day entail?

Mama P said...

What movie star would you have sex with. Assuming you were married. And you read the Bible first. And you attended lectures with your pastor and you only did it missionary style and you only screamed Golly Gee Wilikers every now and then?

Earen said...

Hmmm...ask you whatever I want?! Oh, I tried to read your most recent blog, but it won't let me get into it..not sure why.

I'm sure you've written about this before, but I can't remember. What one dream did you have that has never happened?

mommy to four j's said...
