1. What keeps you blogging?
Ha! This is a good one because I haven't been doing a great job of blogging over the past couple of years. Meeting a fellow blogger over Christmas break helped rekindle blogging for me.
2. Some people like to travel in the winter months. Do you enjoy the beach in winter? According to Southern Living the best U.S. beach towns to visit this winter are-
St Simons Island (Georgia), Hilton Head (South Carolina), Bald Head Island (North Carolina), Seaside (Florida), Bay St. Louis (Mississippi), Cape San Blas (Florida), South Padre Island (Texas), Folly Beach (South Carolina), Chincoteague (Virginia), Duck Key (Florida), Nags Head (North Carolina), and Fairhope (Alabama)
Have you been to any of the towns listed (in any season)? Which on the list appeals to you most this winter?
I love the beach in the winter. In fact, I just wrote a post about our Winter vacation in Panama City Beach, Fl. (I just realized the title should have been 2017, but...oh well!) Hilton Head can get rather chilly in the winter, and I would imagine Bald Head Island, Nags Head, Folly Beach, and Chincoteague would as well. My recommendation would be to go south...St. Simons might be a little "iffy", so go farther south than that!

3. What's a song you're embarrassed to know all the lyrics to? Are you really embarrassed or do just think you should be?
I know the lyrics to an awful lot of songs...and I'm not embarrassed to know any of them. I've been known to have the Oklahoma soundtrack blaring from my car, windows rolled down, and the boys begging me to stop!
Eating what I want, when I want. Unfortunately, I inherited some bad genes from my mom, so I have to watch what I eat.
No quotes, but on New Year's Day, I did the Saint's Name Generator for my Saint of the Year. I randomly received Blessed Titus Brandsma, who isn't a saint yet. He was a Dutch priest who spoke out against the Nazis in WWII and was captured & was a prisoner in several different camps. He ended up in Dachau, where he was tortured, and when he could no longer work because of illness, they used him for "experiments". He was given a lethal injection.
