In order to mix it up just a smidgen...

...I decided to write 2 sentences
in answer to the 5 questions 
for this week's 
hosted by Java @ Never Growing Old.
Here are the questions:
1.  Have you (only you..not a group) ever won first place in anything?
2.  Are your toes always painted (sorry guys...this question for girls only)?
3.  What color eyes do you have?
4.  Look to your left....what do you see?
5.  Soft cookies or crunchy cookies?

(1)I won first place in my 5th grade spelling contest

and a singles' tennis tournament, at age 28,
I have a silver Prince racquet.
2 months after I had my first daughter.
Now she loves to play tennis, too.  April, 2004
Warning:  This next one is kinda weird.

 Since I usually have (2)my toenails painted
Wish my feet were this pretty.

(3)my blue eyes look,
With off-spring #3.  Handsome devil, just like his Daddy.  May 2009
with trepidation,
to the left, 
I see my husband's closet doors hanging wide open,
Actually his closet has a lot more jeans in it, but I love it when he wears a dress shirt and slacks.

(5)so I decide to eat a freshly baked, crunchy peanut butter cookie, or two.
The kids and I used to bake peanut butter cookies
as soon as the DH left on a business trip.
He doesn't like 'em.  PB cookies, that is.
Was that too weird?

I will praise you, O LORD,
with all my heart;
I will tell of all your wonders.
I will be glad and rejoice in you;
I will sing praise to your name,
O Most High.
Psalm 9:1-2

May God bless your day!

I also paint my toes and red polish is the color I usually go with. Peanut Butter cookies are my favorite.
