scavenger hunt

One of the blogs I follow....a is doing a scavenger hunt for those of us who are married to the ministry. Here are my answers:

1. First Name. Patty

2. State and Country of Residence. South Carolina; US

3. Husband’s Ministry Title. Senior Pastor

4. Length of time in Current Ministry Location. 11 months; 16 years total

5. Children? If yes, give gender and ages. Shea, 25; Stevie (a girl), 18; Luke, 13

6. Number of unique homes in which you’ve lived during your marriage. 12

7. Cook Sunday lunch or eat out? eat sandwiches.....don't like to cook or eat out on Sundays (actually I don't cook any day of the week--Steve cooks everything we eat!), but like most everyone else I love to nap

8. Typically on time for Sunday School or not? yes, we live next door to the church so it's hard to explain tardiness

9. Favorite TV Show. Amazing Race

10. Something you watch/like/do that you would never tell the church people. (Except now you just did…lol) Dexter

11. Most annoying church-related pet peeve. people who refuse to speak up and then go out into the parking lot and talk about the "issue" OR people who complain for sake of complaining

12. One thing you need to throw away but can’t bring yourself to do it. I don't horde stuff so I don't really have anything that I should throw away. There might be some emotional baggage I could get rid of, though :)

13. The one food you can not live without. Diet Dr. Pepper and fried shrimp (endless shrimp at Red Lobster: yum-o)

14. Parsonage or have your own home? parsonage (we've done both, and prefer to own, but our parsonage is really nice)

15. Freak when the doorbell rings or always ready for a visitor? completely FREAK...I love having company, but I like to plan


  1. I don't keep stuff, so I couldn't think of a thing to throw away!!

  2. LOL..I live next door to the church too but *oops* I'm always 5-7 minutes late. But my class doesn't start until even later than that so that's how I justify..hahaha

  3. I like a plan too.. especially when it involves people coming to my house!! :)

    And thank you for your kind words on my blog! I enjoyed reading your answers!

  4. fried shrimp, popcorn shrimp, boiled shrimp, coconut shrimp.....sorry I was having a Forrest Gump moment!

    But I do love me some shrimp too!
    After reading everybody's blogs, I'm looking into buying stock in Diet Dr. P!

  5. Shrimp!!! ooh girl:) Add some Tony Chachere's and butter and I could take a bath in it!

    And Dr. Pepper...We live in Waco. The home to the Dr. Pepper museum.

  6. Hello from the PeeDee in SC. I have come across your blog before. Glad to be back and read your treasures. My husband loves the RL shrimp too! But I love Calabash Shrimp the best.

  7. Hi, nice to meet you. I love shrimp too. Wish I could say there was nothing I needed to throw away! lol

  8. Hey Patty... Amazing Race was one of my answers too! I like the Globetrotters or the father / son. I hope they don't get eliminated next week because of their speed bump!!!!

  9. Nice to meet you Patty! From your Southern PW Neighbor...Georgia Jan :)

    Blessings to you!
