Hodgepodge Wednesday

Just so every one will know...........NE Louisiana is having some of the most gorgeous weather right now.  It is wonderful!  I don't mean to rub it in to all your folks that are still dealing with less than desirable weather, but just had to brag a bit.  We're loving it!

1. Your favorite chocolate treat? 
 I like chocolate, but not like most folks.  So, one or two of the little miniature Hershey bars will satisfy any chocolate "  hankering"   I may have.

2. What more than anything else makes you feel loved?  When my Hubby puts my desires ahead of his and he does that quiet often. And, there's a whole host of other things that make me feel loved as well.

3. Cherries or blueberries?
 Oh, no contest, blueberries all the way!!  I just made the best Blueberry Pound Cake this past weekend and it was the hit of our families Valentine celebration.  And, they are so good for you!

4. What is the one trait you most want the leader of your country to posess?  A desire to lead our country in a way pleasing to God.

5. Are you a saver or a spender? I'm afraid a spender, but I find deals and wait for sales.  I make a game out of it at times.  If it's something that I really, really want in a particular size that I think they may sell out of before they put it on sale, I will likely go ahead and "  spring for it."   I love stores like Ross, TJ Maxx and SteinMart where you never have to pay full retail.  Yea!!

6. If you gave a party for all of your friends would they already know each other?
No, my friends span all across this country and there would be all kinds of folks that did not know each other.  The thought of a party like that sounds like such fun!

7. Are you interested in antiques? 

I'm only interested in antiques that have been in our family and that makes them have very special meaning to me.  Otherwise, I don't really care anything for an antique just because it's an antique.

 8. Insert your own random thought here.  When the mail came today there was a package in it for me.  That package was from one of the very special "  blogging buddies"  that I have made.  If you have not met Kelly at "  Blessed Mommy, Blessed Wife"   then you need to go over and meet her.  She is a precious young lady with a precious family and I so enjoy sharing in her life through her blog.  She has become one of my favorite young ladies and I look forward to meeting her in person.


 Thanks to Joyce for being our faithful hostess each Wednesday. It's such fun to read  everyone's answers to the questions.

Welcome to my little corner!


  1. I love blueberries and I love pound you share the recipe?

  2. Stein Mart is my favorite store! I buy 99% of my clothes there! I always come home and tell my husband how much I would have spent had I shoppped somewhere else LOL! - Blueberry pound cake sounds great. I bet you'd love my blueberry coffecake recipe. I'll have to share that recipe on my blog sometime soon! I still have tons of blueberries in my freezer from when we went to the blueberry farm. ~ Have a great day Lea!

  3. I'm with Joyce, do you share your recipe?? Your blog always makes me smile. Have a blessed week!!!

  4. That blueberry pound cake sounds delicious!

    I enjoyed reading your answers today.

  5. Everyone is sharing such yummy food ideas.
    I could go for a Hershey bar and some warm blueberry pound cake. Yum

    I like the quote you put at the end
    " Wrap your arms around life and give it a big hug."

  6. All these Blueberry answers is making me want to dig through my old recipes to find the one for BlueBerry Heaven! It had a cake layer, a cream cheese layer, oodles of berries, and a crumble layer! Coffee cake just isn't a good enough term for it! :)

  7. Blueberry pound cake sounds yummy ... and DH loves blueberries! If you decide to share the recipe, I would love to have it, too.

  8. I feel the same way about antiques...and blueberries. :) Seriously, I don't like clutter, but I love the things that I brought from my grandmother's house. A few precious things that hold lots of memories. I have my great-grandmother's rocking chair!

  9. I wish I had the self control to only eat the mini candy bars. Chocolate is my greatest obsession next to coffee! I am a raspberry, strawberry girl myself! I agree as far as our President. I pray for him often!

  10. Great answers here;especially the way you are loved. Have a blessed week.

  11. Oh! with you on the chocolate and blueberries...I just pulled out a bag of my blueberries I put up last summer..yum
    Well I am the saver...example those horrible pot holders
    Now pound cake is one of my favorite desserts so I might just have to use my berries for one

  12. You are just too sweet! Thank you for thinking enough of me to make me one of your random thoughts :)

    I could live on blueberries, ha! Noelle has also inherited a love of them and it's not unusual for her to sit and eat and entire pint of them. I wish I could have had a piece of your blueberry pound cake!


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
