The rules are simple. I ask Becky 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. What is your natural hair color? Do you dye it often, or is it natural? 

Becky – Natural hair color?  What’s that?

I’ve no idea what my natural hair color would be at this point.  Mouse brown?  I started out as a blonde, so when my hair began to darken in my twenties, I went to the salon and had highlights put in it so that I could remain a blonde. I’ve been coloring it every three or four months ever since.

Charity – Girl, I am right there with ya! My hair color changes so often…I was a natural blond too, but after my first pregnancy, those dreams were SMASHED! I think I am Mouse Brown too. ugh.

— At least you keep up the blond. I am too cheap to pay for that. I just box it whatever color looks cool…

2. On your website, you say, “My goal? To bring you the very best stories I possibly can. But even more than that, to bring God glory. Before I sit down to write I always pray, ‘May You become greater and may I become less.’ John 3:30. I hope, in reading my books, that you’ll find God to be very great, indeed.”

I love that!! Love Love Love that!. I usually ask how authors feel they are bringing God the most glory, but you have answered that with the best answer yet! So, instead, I will ask you, What is your favorite Bible Verse? (besides the one I already copied!!!)

Becky –I adore this promise from Acts 1:8, “You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses.”

It’s such a relief be reminded that I’m not expected to leverage my own power in order to be His witness. There’s no doubt that I’d fail at that.  I often pray Acts 1:8, asking God to equip me through His power to accomplish the work He’s called me to do.

Charity – Love, Love, Love!

— God WINS BIG TIME!

3. Favorite shoes? 

Becky – My old pair of brown boots.  They’re flat and knee-high and scuffed and I might be deceiving myself into thinking that they’re still cute looking.  They’re comfortably worn-in like an old pair of slippers.

Charity – If I was going to be REALLY honest, I would say my plain, Old Navy flip flops. Not too glamorous, but they are super comfy. I love boots in the winter, but I am totally a flip-flop/sandals girl!

4. Do you find yourself using a Boppy frequently for purposes it was not intended to be used for? Like, putting your laptop on while you are on the couch. Or, eating lunch and wanting something to set it on? 

Becky – I wish I still had a Boppy around the house!  That would probably mean that I was still a young mom with a young child.  Instead, I fear that I now fall into the category of ‘old mom’.  Boo!  No Boppys.

Charity – haha! I never had a boppy with my kids. Funny thing is…I have one now?! What in the world??? My husband thinks it’s gross that I have one that I got for FREE from a clothes swap. ha! He won’t touch it. I love it because I can use it for many a purpose.

It is kinda gross.

— I win!

5. Favorite movie or tv show? 

Becky – Downton Abbey.  When I watch it, I feel as though I’m a part of the Crawley family.

Charity – Gosh. I don’t know what my problem is. I had the hardest time getting into that show. I love Blacklist, Survivor and Turn for TV. So good!!!

6. Funniest thing one of your kiddos has done?

Becky – My five year old daughter makes me laugh every day. IMG_1206 She’s very creative and theatrical and is constantly bursting into song and dance.  Sometimes we sing back and forth to each other instead of talking.  Imagine her singing, “What’s for dinner?”  And me singing (poorly) in response, “Chicken and rice.”  Living with her is sometimes a bit like living inside a Disney musical.

Charity – That’s amazing!! My seven year old is crazy too! He loves to sing along with Taylor Swift. We blast it in the car and he sings the really high notes. Kids are the best! So funny!!!

— How can one win?

7. Do you play video games? If so, which ones?

Becky – I play zero video games.

1) I lack interest in them.

2) I know I’d be terrible.

Charity – Girl. I am right there with you.

— tie — Why do I feel like we aren’t getting anywhere?!

8. What is your go to seasoning?

Becky – A shaker of generic “Italian Seasoning”.  I measure it out by the tablespoon into my homemade crock pot spaghetti sauce.  Take that, Giada De Laurentiis!

Charity – haha. You need to STOP ANSWERING WITH MY ANSWERS! I love Italian Seasoning too. *kicks you in the shins*

— TIE AGAIN

9. Cake, Cookies, or Pie?

Becky – Cookies. Oatmeal chocolate chip with nuts, right out of the oven while still gooey.

Charity – Ahhhh. Finally! Pie all the way! I love FRUIT. I am a total fruit nut. I’ll eat fruit any way I can get it! Probably why I am a “big boned girl”.

— ??

10. Sunny and warm or Cold and Snow?

Becky – Sunny and warm.

Charity – Sunny and warm.

— Of course.

11. I see you are from Texas. Do you know how to lasso?

Becky – I’ve seen accomplished people perform lasso tricks at rodeos.  I don’t know how to lasso, however.  I live in Dallas, so I’m the city dwelling Texas type.  We have more Starbucks locations than steers in this neighborhood.

Charity – haha. Well, I don’t either. I am a city girl all the way. The only thing I love about the country is the lack of speed limits!Grassy_Hill-speed_limit

— I’ll give it to you since you live in Texas…

Final:

  1. Loved the funny things your kids do. Sounds just like my 8 year old. We like to talk in a funny voice all day and it drives the hubs crazy… He won’t even talk to us when we do it. 🙂

  2. I enjoy the face-offs. You ask such off the wall questions. It’s fun to learn things about the authors that aren’t on the usual interviews. I love Becky’s books so I especially enjoyed getting to know her better.

  3. This is awesome – yet again! Love both of your favorite TV shows. “Downton Abbey” is big-time my British “guilty pleasure” (love that family) and “Blacklist” is addicting and epic and awesome… and all that jazz. 🙂

    Great to read more about Becky and read your cute “kids stories.” So fun.
