We are having a very hot day here in Nashville, so we’ve been spending time inside. Below is my fourth and final list of responses to the questions that you posted. Feel free to submit more. And be sure to share your answers to these questions.
How old are you? How did you meet your husband?
It always makes me feel uncomfortable to share my age, so I’ll just say that Mr. Handsome is in his mid-30s, and I am five years younger. Six years ago, we posted a multiple-part story of how we met (links below).
Does your husband hope to have his own practice one day?
Possibly. We’re just waiting to see where God leads us.
What are your go-to, 30-minute-or-less dinner recipes?
Fajitas are my go-to dinner meal when I need something in 30 minutes or less. My recipe for quick and easy fajitas can be found on my Recipes page under Main Dishes. Chicken Parmesan is another great one. I haven’t made it in a while, but it’s both quick and easy.
You talk a lot about Mr. Handsome’s hobbies. Do you have hobbies? Has Little Buddy started to show interest in a sport or hobby?
Right now, Little Buddy wants to do whatever Daddy is doing, and they love making up adventures outside and inside. Little Buddy is starting team sports this fall, as well. As far as my hobbies go, I’ve never made much time for hobbies. I am a very practical person who likes to be productive and because of that, I have a hard time developing hobbies. I do enjoy exercising, so that is sort of a hobby. Forms of exercise that are also enjoyable and interesting, like hiking and biking, are my favorites. And of course, blogging is a hobby of mine.
When do you do your personal devotion time?
I usually do my personal devotion time in the evenings. Sometimes I have a chance to read the Bible during nap time, but there is usually so much to be done during the day that it’s hard for me to sit down and quiet my mind. So on most days, right after I put the kids to bed is the most ideal time. Both Mr. Handsome and I value calm, quiet evenings on weekdays. I know there will come a time when our kids are older and we will be busier, but for now, we try to keep bedtime consistent and put an emphasis on reading and quality family time.
How far away are your families? Do your kids routinely get to see grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins?
We have some family in Nashville and some a few hours away. The ones who don’t live here come to visit a lot, which we love.
What is your daily schedule like? Do you have set times that you do things?
I don’t currently have a set schedule, although we usually do school time in the mornings. Afternoons are for nap time for Littlest Buddy and rest time (independent play time) for Little Buddy. Errands and time with friends are sprinkled in at various times throughout the week.
What’s your favorite trip/favorite location that your have visited, in the US or abroad? Has there been a place you have not enjoyed visiting? I’m always looking for travel inspiration.
I’ve never traveled to a place that I haven’t enjoyed. Out of the places I have visited, it’s hard to pick a favorite because they are all unique in their own ways. The picture below is from one of my favorite historical trips. We visited some of the sites in Montgomery, Alabama, and were able to meet a sweet woman named Vera Harris. She knew Martin Luther King, Jr., because she lived down the street from the parsonage where he resided with his family. Her husband was also a Tuskegee airman, and they housed freedom riders in their home.
The picture at the top of the post is from our trip to New Orleans in 2016. For travel inspiration, take a look at my Travel page.
