I ask Christine 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.

Itโ€™s my blog.

Here we go!

1. What’s the most fun part of having all boys? (I do too! I have a 16 year old and a 7 year old)

Christine – They’re straightforward and simple. As long as they have food, they’re happy.

Charity – OMGoodness. I would never change it! They are so awesome. You can walk by and knock them over and they think it’s funny. They eat like a horse, but they are rough and tumble. It’s the best!!!!

— Tie! Boys are so fun!

2. If you had to pick one store to live in for a year, and could use everything in it, what store would you choose? (food not a concern)

Christine – I love stores with kitchen gadgets and dishes and platters and all the things you don’t need but can use for entertaining. I’d stay there for a year, as long as I didn’t have to cook but could just entertain.

Charity – Nice! I would have to choose… Target. (Ikea was a close second…but there are no books or movies there!!)

— ?? Dumb question for a face-off! Who’s supposed to win?!

3. Do you have any recurring dream/nightmare? Not like, night terrors, just something that is the one thing you go back to?

Christine – I used to have a recurring nightmare that I was in a dark ice skating rink by myself. Scary music would start playing and I was aware that someone was in the rink with me, trying to get to me. Yikes! Scary.

Charity – ๐Ÿ˜ฎ That is really scary!!!

I always have ones about snakes or just not being able to get to something I need to. It’s awful.

— Scary, dark skating rink…that one gets a point!

4. Favorite childhood song?

Christine – I Wanna Dance With Somebody by Whitney Houston

Charity – Nice!! Haha. Good, old Whitney Houston! Her and Kevin Costner. (who happens to be in everything again out of NOWHERE. Weird…)

This is what my sister and I rocked out to until my mom threw it away because she was so sick of it!!!:

— I am SO taking this one!! #ChristyLaneRocks

5. Favorite musical?

Christine – Wicked!!

Charity – I didn’t specify stage or movie. I am going to go with… Meet Me in St. Louis with Judy Garland!! It’s so cute! haha

— Not sure! This is too hard…

6. Best part about living in Virginia? (I do too!!)

Christine – Four seasons, as opposed to Texas (where I grew up) which has mild summer, hot summer, really hot summer, and a few days of what some might call winter.

Charity – I love that, but I am a major history geek. I LOVE all the history here! It’s insane and amazing!!!!

— Girl, we are getting NOWHERE!!

7. How do you strive to bring God the most glory in your life?

Christine – I try to use the gifts He’s given me in my local church and in the greater Church through writing.

Charity – Awesome. I agree! You have a wonderful platform! I guess, for me, it is listening to Him and His direction every moment of the day (well, at least I try!). We get to have a great ministry by listening to the small steps one at a time.

— God wins!!!

8. Have you ever eaten venison hunted by someone you knew?

Christine – Yes, actually I have. One of my friend’s husband hunts for all their meat. He’s given us some of it, but I have to be honest and say that I don’t like it ๐Ÿ™‚

Charity – Ruh Roh! Hope he doesn’t read girly blogs that look like a bubble gum shop!!

I think I did when I was a kiddo, but I didn’t like it. I am not sure if I am making that up or not though. *shrug*

— Christine totally gets it for laying it OUT THERE!

9. Has anyone ever stolen your car’s license plate?

Christine – Nope.

Charity – OMGosh. Someone totally stole my husbands a couple months ago!!! It was ridiculous! He got pulled over too. (the BAD guy) ha ha. My husband drives a scary old car. It’s GINORMOUS and purple. A big Lincoln he got when he Grandpa passed away. Anyway, it’s atrocious and my hubby totally doesn’t care because it was a free car. I make him park it away from our house, on the side behind our big fence, so I don’t see it because I am scared of it and super shallow. So, it was an easy target! hahaha

— I get it!!!

10. Funniest pulled over, car breakdown, or run out of gas moment?

Christine – In college I went skiing in Colorado with a large group of friends, one of whom was a guy I’d been dating. We’d broken upย right before the trip, and I was really sad about it. One night while on the trip, a group of us were in a borrowed van. My ex-boyfriend was driving everyone back to their respective condos, including me. I was the last one to be dropped off, so it was just him and me in the van. It was already awkward, but then the van broke down. The snow was coming down, it was dark, and I was stuck there with my ex-boyfriend in the middle of nowhere. We ended up getting a ride back into town and, four years later, we ended up married.

Charity – NICE!!!! I have been pulled over many times, but the cop always ends up small talking with me for a long time and then letting me go. I put on my perky, I love cops voice and BOOM! Plus, I’m just so stinkin’ adorable!!!
