I forgot to Hodgepodge last Wednesday! And the host is skipping this week because she has a daughter getting married. So I am going to get last week's answers posted this week and then catch back up next week. And here we go ...
Share a favorite moment from your Christmas holiday celebration.I think our Christmas Eve celebration was my favorite. Spending time at my parents' with my family was cozy and peaceful and enjoyable. I loved watching my two-year old niece Ashtyn enjoy her time and it was amazing to snuggle with my great niece Ellie. It was just family.
What would you say has been the biggest news event during your life so far?The obvious answer is 9/11. But more gripping to me was the bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City in 1995. New York seemed so far away to me when it happened. But the OKC bombing was the first time in my adult life that something hit so close to home. We were living in Missouri, not Oklahoma at the time, but I was just terrified that a terrorist act had happened in a place so off the radar of what would be a "normal" terrorist attack location. I held my 5 month old baby and just prayed and prayed for those poor people. The images of small dead children being carried out of the daycare that was in the basement was horrifying. The memorial there has chairs for each victim and the children are represented by small chairs. It is moving and so sad and still affects me today. I will forever know where I was and what I was doing when that happened.
The Pantone Color of the Year for 2015 is Marsala. What say you -- like or no like? Would you find this color anywhere in your home or wardrobe? Will you add something in this shade to either?
I love this color! And it's right in my wheelhouse. I love any colors that remind me of fall and this rich wine color certainly does that! I do have this color in my home, as you can see from this picture of my dining room rug.
I have smatterings of it throughout my home. I'm not sure if I have any of this actual color in my wardrobe. But a cable knit infinity scarf would be amazing! Off to Amazon!
This one looks pretty close, huh? It's now in my Cart.
