Who Kelly Is

We often say on this blog that we have a lot in common with Candy, and we really only disagree with her on a small amount of what she writes. However, as we tend to only write about the disagreements, I thought the things we have in common might get a bit lost. I was inspired by Candy's Who I Am post to write about some things which I share with Candy.

1. I am a Christian. I put my faith in Jesus Christ, the ONE Mediator, and I love the Church that He founded.

2. I love reading and studying the Bible.

3. I, like Candy, am not fond of the NIV translation. I prefer the RSV, but I love my Navarre Study Bibles, as well. And you can't beat the KJV for poetic translation.

4. I homeschool my children.

5. I don't send my children to Sunday School. Actually, most Catholic Churches do not have Sunday School or church nurseries.

6. I love to read. I can plow through the reading list, just like Candy does.

7. My 7-year-old does laundry, too.

8. I like to cook from scratch for most things.

9. I wear only dresses in the summer, and I like to dress femininely.

10. I admit it. I make kombucha tea. But I prefer Stephanie's recipe.

And when Kelly puts on her perfume in the morning she lets out three little sneezes, "Choo!Choo!Choo!" She also used to have a real fondness for The Simpsons. And since she used to be a ballet dancer, she knows how to put her hair up in a perfect bun.

She is also a very nice and generous person, and I am very glad that we hooked up as room mates our last two years of college.

Funny, yesterday (before I ever read Candy's) I wrote on my own blog about how I don't really feel I fit in with other homeschooling moms because I don't do things like garden, sew, scrapbook, raise animals, (or wear many dresses for that matter - I prefer capris in the summer). And I enjoy getting away from my kids regularly and leave them with babysitters. But I do love the Lord, and I cook from scratch! (No grinding my own wheat or making scary looking stuff like kombucha tea!)

I have wanted to do kombucha tea for a good while now! Where did you get your baby from?

Tracy! You are not boring!

I did a post a bit back:

Ah yes, what sort of silly person persists in wearing perfume when she's allergic to it? But it only bothered me when I put it on, not the whole day!

It's been a while since I've bothered with perfume. Plus, my favorite is also my mom's and now that we live in the same town, it is a little weird to smell like your mom. ;)

I really miss my bun, though. I tried to get a shorter hair cut, and the woman really butchered it. It's growing out now, but I need at least two years of growth to be bun length. It's probably half the length that is in my picture here.

Kelly, that is so funny. I remember a time that my mom & I liked the same perfume but I wouldn't wear it because I didn't want to smell like my mom.

I understand your frustration about getting your hair butchered. That happened to me about 18 mos. ago when I asked for a "few long layers" - I ended up looking like Stryper band member! It is just now getting back to where I like it again. I hope yours grows out quicker than mine!

Nice idea for an exercise there, doing a "who I am" post so we can all get to know each other. I like it!

Rachel, I got my scoby from someone on Ebay. There are two or three sellers there who do a good business on just selling them. It came very well wrapped, and had detailed instructions including troubleshooting and recipes.

Rachel said...

I'll have to look again. There is a guy 3 hours from me that sells them. One day I'll bite the bullet. I don't think I have the time right now :(

Nice post Kelly! I think I will add mine later today!
