Link is in the pic, so check it out!!!
But for now, WE PLAY!!!
The rules are simple. I ask Anna some random questions. She replies and then I give my answers. Each winning answer is worth one point and I get to decide whose answer is better.
It’s my blog.
Here we go!
1. If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Anna – I’d love to visit the Caribbean islands someday, preferably on a cruise. 🙂 Ooh, or Italy or Greece or Ireland…
Charity – OMGosh. Take. Me. With. You. Sounds like we are on the same page!!! Greece is my DREAM vaca!!!! The others you named are right up there. England trumps Ireland though. You know, Jane Austen and all…
— Tie because GREAT MINDS…

2. What’s your favorite period of history?
Anna – I’m a fan of most periods of history, especially American history. I love reading novels set in the Wild West, the glamourous 20s, the Civil War, and WW1 and 2, just to name a few. I feel like I always learn something by the time the story is over.
Charity – I hear ya! I love Revolutionary War, Civil War, American History, and I love English History too! I can’t handle WW2. So horrific…. :,-(
— Harumph. Tie again!

3. Funniest road trip story?
Anna – My family and I had some crazy times on the road, but one time that immediately comes to mind was the time (many years ago now) that one of my brothers was flirting and waving at a carfull of college girls during a road trip. After several moments of this, they wrote a phone number on a piece of paper and held it up when they passed by. My brother finally worked up the nerve to call… and it was the Osteoporosis hotline number. We all had a good laugh at that one.
Charity – OMGosh. That is AMAZING!!! I bet he has never heard the end of it!! I wouldn’t ever let that one go if it happened to my brother (: ha ha ha
I just remember when we were growing up (in the 80’s), there were no rules, so we had a “buggy van” (Otherwise known as VW van) and my parents would take out all the seats in the back and put down mattresses for us. It was AMAZING!!! I am so sad my kids can’t experience that kind of travel. Now they have to be in a car seat until they are 8!!!!
One time, we were riding in the “buggy van” and it broke down a couple hours from home. We didn’t have a lot of money, so my dad made some phone calls and someone from church had a friend that lived in the area…we stayed with the complete strangers overnight When I think about it, it is really kind of cool. That’s what Christianity is supposed to look like. It’s still weird though.
— Fake Phone Number wins every time!!!

4. Do you go Black Friday shopping?
Anna – And get trampled to death by stampeding parents? Are you crazy?!
Charity – Ha!! OMgosh. My husband and I do Black Friday EVERY YEAR! It’s our favorite day of the year! We plan it out for months and months. As the ads leak, we are eating them up like candy!!!!!! There are many tricks to it…If you know which places price match, they aren’t ever sold out and you can snatch stuff up easily!! Also, another secret of the trade is at Kohls (and places like that). If you buy a $1 piece of jewelry, you can avoid the mile long line and check out at the jewelry counter (;
One year, we had a cart full of stuff at Target and this lady came over and started grabbing stuff OUT OF OUR CART!! It was soooo hilarious! We always go with the idea that we will just have fun and not get stressed. So, we knew it would be a fun story to tell. It’s always funny at Target because they just have to wear a red shirt and khaki pants. People always imitate the employees and tell people random things (like the wrong direction to find the product, or the wrong prices). It adds to the hilarity of it all. ** This year, Target got smart and made their employees wear “Black Friday Team Member t-shirts. BOOOOO!!!)
— I win!!!!!

5. Favorite Ice Cream Flavor?
Anna- Depending on my mood, either chocolate chip cookie dough or good old chocolate! 🙂 (Yum, now I’ve gotta go raid my freezer!)
Charity – HA! I am not the friend you want to have around if you want to diet. I LOOOVEEEEE FOOOODDD!! Yum Yum.
Oddly enough, I’m not a huge fan of ice cream. Chocolate peanut butter would be my fav, but I don’t usually like it. I prefer CANDY CANDY CANDY. Chewy Sprees, Chewy Sweet-Tarts, Bumpy Jelly Beans (Oh. My. Gosh!!!)
— You got that one!! I didn’t even have a good answer for my own questions. dumb.
Charity 1 / Anna 2
6. Favorite place you have visited?
Anna – I’ve put a lot of thought into this question and I honestly can’t pick a favorite of the places I’ve been; each comes with its own special charm and allure. The Smoky mountains (especially in the fall), the Emerald Coast beaches, Lancaster, PA, Washington D.C., Georgia, and the list goes on and on. 🙂
Charity – Girl, I’ve got nothing on your travel!! I would love to see all the states!!
— Definitely a win for Anna

7. How do you bring God the most glory in your life?
Anna – That’s an excellent question. There are many answers I could give, like leading worship on Sunday mornings at the chapel on base or through my writing. But honestly, most of it is probably in the little, day-to-day interactions with people, in the things that don’t seem that important at the time.
Charity – I love that answer! You are so right. It is in the little day-to-day things.

8. How did you meet your husband?
Anna – I met my husband at a little church in Indiana 2 weeks before he left for Air Force Basic Training. Both of us had been asked to sing there. He almost left early and my family and I got lost and almost didn’t make it, but God obviously had other plans. We had a long-distance relationship for 4 years while he was in the military and I traveled with my family’s band. Actually, we just celebrated our 1-year anniversary on April 4th. 🙂
Charity – So sweet! God is insanely sovereign. I never get tired of hearing about His sovereignty!! (April 4th is my sis’s birthday! woot!!)
Ok, so my hubby…ha ha. I got saved when I was 25 year old. I was a single mom and had started going to church. Still immature, (but I haven’t changed much! ha ha) I saw this guy walk in and I said to my best friend, “Look at that hot slab of meat!”. Needless to say, he was terrified of me. He had just gotten saved too and saved from a life of drugs, jail and a horrible lifestyle. He saw me as someone that could easily pull him back down since I was so new to God. He would try to avoid me every time he saw me. He would get really nervous when he saw me coming because he didn’t want to hurt my feelings. He had just moved here from the Chicago area and didn’t know anyone. I was “Miss Perky” and kept inviting him to hang out. He finally got bored enough after a year! lol 🙂 The rest was history. The first time we hung out, we spent HOURS just walking around downtown area of Norfolk, VA talking about all God had done and changed in our lives. It was amazing.
We never looked back
— I’m taking that one!! My husband hated me when we met and I STILL GOT THAT HOT SLAB OF MEAT! (;

9. What’s your favorite State?
Anna – Florida! I’ve been a fan of Florida since I was a little girl and we would visit my grandmother in Orlando every year. If it was up to me, I’d never leave. (knocks on wood)
Charity – I love my state (Virginia), but I absolutely love Kentucky and Nevada. ❤ Both are sooo beautiful (and opposite!!)
Charity 2 / Anna 3
10. Are you a Summer Beach girl, or a Snowy Winter girl?
Anna – I am definitely a Summer Beach girl, especially since I moved to Panama City last year. I hate cold weather with a passion, wear flip flops year round, and I have to have my weekly beach fix or I get cranky!
Charity – Ohhhh… I do love my flip-flops, but I also love Virginia. We actually get all 4 seasons and I LOVE it. Besides, winter clothes hide my fat better!! (although, Fall is my favorite time of year!! So beautiful and holidays are in the air…)
Charity 2 / Anna 3
11. Favorite band/singer?
Anna – Is it lame to say “My husband!”? He plays the piano and has such a beautiful voice… I could listen to him for hours. Sometimes in the evenings, he will play and sing while I’m writing/reading and it’s absolute bliss. 🙂
Charity – ahhh.. Now look what you did there! I can’t answer that in any way that would win. pssshhhhhh
— Anna. That’s how it’s done.

12. Have you ever competed in one of those things where if you eat a GINORMOUS 30lb burger you get it for free and your pic on the wall (or something like that)?
Anna – LOL No, but that’s just because I know I’d never make it to the wall. I have a pretty small stomach so I’d probably get a maybe a quarter of it down, then be sick and still have to pay full-price. I’ve always admired the people who could eat like that, though.
Charity – That makes me want to barf even thinking about it!!!! It would be so fun to watch. You would feel sick watching, but it would be impossible to look away!!!
