And she goes on and on and on

Okay, I'm back at it with the official shoe count for Irma.

I am the proud owner of 54 pairs of shoes. Out that 54 only two are tennis shoes.

Wait 55. I forgot to count my steel toe shoes.

A bunch of those are flip flops but most of them are heels. I love a 4"heel. I love to come home after wearing my steel toed shoes all day long and just throwing on some "girl" shoes to go to the grocery store, or flip flops, who knows. You have to share the love between all of your shoes to keep them all happy....

As for my favorite pair, I have two right now! Check these ladies out!

Yes, I wear both pairs to church, even though my husband wonders about the pink ones going there.

Aren't those great?!? Hey if any of you guys out there wear a size huge (9-10) let me know maybe we can work out some crazy shoe swap. Yeah right, like I could let my babies out of my sight....

Okay on to the more questions:

Last book that I read was thrown out a couple times.

I usually can't remember the last book I read but This time I can, no author, I'll have to add that one later but the title is Sweetest Dreams, Yeah, I didn't really like it all but I have this thing about how once I start a book I have to finish it no matter how dull it is or how little I get in to it. I just can't give up. I suffered through it and was so glad I was done once it was over.

If you were to ask me in three or four days what the last book I read was, it would be a whole new answer. I LOVE TO READ!!!!!! It's how I escape, relax, unwind, get away. At night I can't go to sleep unless I read, whether it's for five minutes of an hour it just helps me end my day. I love to run away to the bath room and jump in the tub and just hide for an hour of so and read, ahhhh..........just thinking of it feels good. books are my friends, I keep myself surrounded by them. There is always a pile in my bathroom, another by my bed, and one more on my dresser. Usually Ben just moves them down to the basement. I can't wait until I have shelves for all my books. I dream of a library in my house someday, a room just stuffed full of books, a big comfy chair, and maybe a lounge, a window and a blanket. Someday, someday.......

Miakatia asked a few let's start with these for now:

What game show past or present would you like to be on?

Let's make a Deal! Hands down. have you seen my purse?!? I'm golden!

What does your favorite color smell like?

What? Wow, Ive never thought like that before. Good question! I know my favorite smell but what does my favorite color smell like...geez....give me a minute......

I love purple and the smell that keeps coming to mind is the thick, clean, misty smell that you get here in Washington on an early summer morning and Eucalyptus, hmmm maybe my sense of smell is color blind cause you would think those would be green colors but nope, when I think purple it's a deep comforting rich purple, like the woods that you grow up in and know like the back of your hand. Does any of that make sense? Nah, I knew I was weird.

What song reminds you of you husband of what is your song?

So easy, I Knew I Loved You, by Savage Garden.

Come on does it get any better than this?

"I Knew I Loved You"

Maybe it's intuition
But some things you just don't question
Like in your eyes
I see my future in an instant
and there it goes
I think I've found my best friend
I know that it might sound more than
a little crazy but I believe

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life

There's just no rhyme or reason
only this sense of completion
and in your eyes
I see the missing pieces
I'm searching for
I think I found my way home
I know that it might sound more than
a little crazy but I believe

(more chorus)

A thousand angels dance around you
I am complete now that I found you

(more chorus)

Really? Does it get better than that? Now you guys all wish that could be your song too, I know, it's okay, I can share.

What songs do you want played at your funeral?

I have an older brother who died at two (he was three years older than me, never got to meet him here on earth....) and his favorite song was I Am A Child Of God so that is the first one. After that how about:

Because I Have Been Given Much~That's sorta the way I feel about life.
Put Your Shoulder To The Wheel~Another good mantra.
The Spirit Of God~ That is always a good one to end something on.....

Name a famous person you would like to meet.

I would love to meet the Prophet. Is he famous? I would love to feel the spirit that surrounds him and the love that I know he is inside of him and just radiating out for every one to enjoy.

After that note, here are two more:

Colin Farrell and Angelina Jolie. They are just hot!

Okay, Mia had a few more for me and there are still a couple other people I have yet to answer, no need to fret those answers will be coming along shortly....

Oh my! I love the pink ones. Remember my sweet girlfiend, we wear the same size shoes and my favorite color is PINK!!! Glad you posted a pic of the pink ones. You didn't mention your fab shoe boxes!!! Do you keep your boxes for all your shoes?

Seriously I LOVE reading all of your answers to these questions. I am afraid no one would ask questions which is shy I have never done this, but I love reading your answers!!! PS I am all about a sassy pair of shoes at church. And I would totally consider the Prophet famous!
