I have been tagged.....

I was tagged by my blog friend Natalie to answer a few questions about myself. I have never done that on my blog before, so I thought that would be fun! I hope you enjoy getting to know a little bit more about me!

1. What do you do for a living and is it your passion? If it's not, what would your dream job be?
I am a ministry assistant at a church in our town. I do all sorts of things for the church.....finances, mailers, phones and keeping everything a float! I do love serving the Lord in that way by assisting the Pastors at the church. Plus....I'm a natural born organizer! lol! I have also always had a dream to open my own small a flower shop, bakery or boutique. That would be fabulous.

2. What kind of tradition does your family have at Christmastime?
I am a CRAZY Christmas lady during the holidays. I go all out, all month long! I love it so much. Every year Tim and I try to start some new traditions for ourselves. We visit all of our families of course and share different traditions with them that I love. Tim and I always drive around on Christmas Eve in our p.j.'s, drink hot chocolate and look at lights in our town! It is so fun...especially when it is snowing! We also allow ourselves to open one gift to each other on Christmas Eve....we are like kids! Oh, I can't wait! I am all cheese!

3. What is your favorite form of fitness and why do you like it?
I love and need variety in my fitness life! I get bored easily. So...I love going on walk/jogs around my neighborhood, doing different videos at home, trying different machines at the gym and taking classes. I have recently been trying to wake up early for fitness as you might remember......haha! :)

4. If your married, did you have a long or short engagement?
Sometime I should share Tim and I's story on the blog....but we were engaged for 1 year. I guess that is kinda average? We started dating at the ripe old age of married at 20....and now I'm 25! He has had my heart for a long time!

5. What is your favorite thing about blogging?
I started blogging several years ago because I had a friend that lived out of town that started one and talked me into doing it too. I didn't really blog much back then. This year is when I really discovered how awesome it really is! I just love blogging. I love sharing my life with everyone and sharing random thoughts and ideas. I have loved meeting so many other sweet bloggers out there and getting to know you. I truly feel like we are friends. Okay...I sound cheesy again. It is a blessing.

6. What is your favorite way to worship? (reading, singing, praying, serving)
Oh I could worship any way! God is so good and has changed my life completely. I love to find ways to worship God everyday. One of my favorite ways is definitely singing. Just hearing an amazing song....can hit you and just help you focus on God. When I'm alone, I can sing at the top of my lungs and just go to town! haha!

7. Does your name have a special meaning?
Hmmmm I'm not sure about this one. I think one time I saw my name meant beloved....but I'm not positive. My parents said they were going to name me Rachel but ended up changing it to Amanda in the end! Could you see me as a Rachel?

8. Truthfully, would you ever consider adopting a child? If so, would you consider foster adoption, domestic or international?
I'm am pretty sure Tim and I would adopt if the Lord lead us in that direction. I would love to adopt a foster, domestic or international. My brother is adopted.....but I have only and always thought of him as my real brother! I have never thought any differently. Love you brother!

Well, hopefully you learned a little more about me! And I didn't bore you! ;)
I am suppose to tag people...but I would love for anyone to participate that wants to. I love getting to know everyone.

Oh my dear, that's so sweet to have been dating Tim since fifteen and married to Tim since 20! Not many people can say that they've been in love for ten years at the age of 25! My boyfriend and I were best friends through high school, but only started dating after we graduated. Now, we're juniors in college and falling more and more in love with each other each day (even though we're thousands of miles apart right now).

I loved reading this little questionnaire! :D

Loved reading more about you. You should share your love story some time :)

Oh, I just love all of your answers...I once drove up to a stoplight while I was singing my heart out to the christian song on the I turned for some odd reason, I noticed the girl next to me singing her heart out, too, and I could tell she was singing the same song...I thanked God for her right then and there...I could see us doing that at a stoplight, lol!!!!
