Getting to know me!

First of all, thank you all so much for the questions, I had no clue there would be so many LOL

Here's the answers, you might want to grab a cup of coffee and sit down for a little or rather, lengthy chat with me *snicker* (Or you can just scroll down really fast and laugh at my expressions, it's pretty funny actually, I had no clue the videos would pause at such unflattering images LOL)

You'll notice that I look tired, I was up all night with allergies, they're doing construction around here and it's just awful......You will also notice that I started with a sweater on and ended up without LOL

If you didn't get a chance to ask a question, no problem, we'll do this again, maybe next week or so?


Sandra,have you done any of the meme's that are out there and if not why not???

I was wondering what kind of photo editor you use for your pictures? They always look so nice!

Nothing Too Fancy:
Sandra, I'd love to hear a bit about your background. How did you meet your husband? How did you end up in the States? How many places have you lived?

Love the new look - what program do you use for your templates?

Posh And Trendy Back to Basic's said...
May I ask you a question that they say you're not supposed to ask a woman?
How old are you?

Raggedy Girl said...
Where do you get all your great recipes? Oh can I have two. I think it is so neat that your titles have a box of color under them. I am so computer stupid that I cannot even think about how you do such a clever thing, care to share, if no I understand about trade secrets. I just love your blog.

Lulu said...
was going to ask how did you meet your hubby, but someone already asked..:) Here's the link for you to read the whole story

Tina said...
I'd love to know your top 3 duty stations!

Niki said...
What are your top 10 favorite books of all times?

Hi Sandra,
I am interested in becoming a doula so naturally I want to know how your pregnancy/deliveries turned out. Any crazy cravings? Any more children in the future?

How many places have you lived in the States? Any place you'd really like to move to or someplace you wouldn't want to move to?
When and how did you become a christian?

Blessed Beyond said...

Lara Gisela said...
As for the question, well, I was going to ask the same as Michelle: how do you stay slim with all of your yummy recipes. But let me think of another one. Do you speak Portuguese or English with your children?

Katrina said...

I'm curious to know if you think you will retire in the states or if going back home is a possibility. I've known several military couples that the man has decided to take his wife home and got a job there so I was just wondering!

Cheri said...
I want to know what if you prefer baking or cooking and what your most favorite meal is to cook.

Jen said...
Let me think a bit. What is your favorite television show...only one. The one you look forward to and cant live with out.

Sharon said...
Um....a question....what type of camera do you have? Your pic's are in super sharp focus.

Andrea said...
What is your recipe for hot chocolate muffins? Do you crochet or only knit? I crochet, I have no idea how to knit, but would love to learn someday. Oh and one more question-sorry-how long did you have to shake the cream before it turned to butter?

Good job Sandra!
Thanks for answering my questions. I thought maybe you would chose one what a surprise!

Wendi said...

Loved getting to know you better. Such a creative way to answer questions. Have a great day!

Kim S. said...

Ms. Sandra,

Hello! You don't know me (I'm a lurker), but I have been reading your blog for awhile now and love it. What I have to say is OT, but I didn't know where else to mention it. My apologies.

I quickly noticed that you enjoy reading A LOT, just like me. :) I just came back from the library and wanted to offer you a suggestion for a possible new author. Sara Rosett writes mystery books where the main character- Ellie- is the wife of an AF pilot. I know mysteries aren't everyone's thing, but one that intros the military was very unique, IMO!

Happy reading in 2009! :)

Anonymous said...

OH MY WORD.. this was so fun to watch! I to late to ask a question? Can you TRY to show how to crochet via your blog?

mommaof3 said...

this was fun!

Sarah said...

I love the videos, it makes you seem a little nearer and not all those miles away.

Loved hearing your answers.

Hugs and love


Nothing Too Fancy... said...

OH how WONDERFUL! Thank you so much for sharing! Believe it or not, I've known two different couples who met on the internet and are now very happy together. I've never left the states but I have ALWAYS wanted to travel. I will certainly add South Africa to the list!

Nikowa@KHA said...

SO neat!

Thanks for sharing :)

Michele said...

I had fun watching these... but all the ones from "tinyPic" would not buffer right and I was unable to watch them. I am sure it is because I have an older computer with a slower processor. Of course, the hot chocolate muffin answer was on one of the clips I was unable to watch.

AND... one more thing-- can you post the answer to your top 10 books? I am currently (amazingly enough) not in the middle of a book right now and would like to check out one or two, but I am terrible at trying to guess how to spell authors names!
(p.s. I think Idaho is beautiful, too! Montana is very similar and I'll never move away.)

Lulu said...

wow, what a lovely story of how you met your hubby...It gave me goose bumps to hear about the phone/fax machine..wowowo!!!

Lisa@UnexpectedJourney said...

Thank you for sharing, Sandra. It was very enjoyable!

Cheri said...

That was so much fun! Next time you'll have to post a little video of you speaking Portuguese- I would love to hear it!

Elizabeth said...

I love this post! What a neat idea. If I wasn't super camera shy, I'd do it too... You are so pretty. And I also can't miss an episode of Ghost Hunters. I LOVE Jason and Grant!

Mari said...

This was so fun! I loved hearing you again and really feel like I know you better than I did before. I like a lot of the books you mentioned too.

~TAMY 3 Sides of Crazy~ said...

Sandra this was sooooo much fun - great idea you have here. You're certainly braver than I am.

Nicole said...

Wonderful idea, thanks for sharing!

I would love to subscribe to your Full Bellies food blog too, but can't seem to find a reader subscription link. Is it hiding somewhere? :)

Thanks in advance!

Elizabeth Ann said...

What fun that was to listen to your have a very quick wit and engaging smile! Now I have a question...did you let Curt and the kids watch your movies??!

Take care.

Michelle said...

I loved it all :-) Thanks Sandra for doing this.Have a great day.

Posh And Trendy Back to Basic's said...

you are so adorable.. can I adopt you? My other 4 daughters would love having you in the family.
Thanks for answering my age question.. I thought you were about the age of my youngest who just did turn 30 but you're not that much older then her.

Elenka said...

Oh, I really enjoyed that. You have a great personality and seem very happy, even in Arizona!
Thanks for sharing.

Heidi @ GGIP said...

Wow Sandra! These videos make it seem like you are my next door neighbor! What a fun neighbor you would be too.

I found so many of the questions interesting. However, I didn't realize how many countries you had lived in.


Raggedy Girl said...

How wonderful of you to do this, Sandra. Your blog is so special and unique. I look forward to coming to visit each day. And I love to try your recipes. My great grandmother came from the Azores and I love the recipes that remind me of my Grandma.

Blessed Beyond said...

I really appreciate you doing this, and giving us the chance to know you better. Your love story, is remarkable! What a true testament to God! And what a powerful experience on the phone with Curt. Thank you for sharing so much!

Hugs and Blessings,

autumnesf said...

That was so cool Sandra!

What was even cooler is that my hubs got me a laptop for Christmas so I threw it up on the counter in the kitchen and watched all your answers while preparing smothered steak to throw in the crockpot. So I had the computer, cooking and Sandra all in the same place. That was fun!

gail@more than a song said...

I loved hearing your voice Sandra! That was a fun thing to do. You are one brave chickiee doing that, I couldn't put my voice out there!
Good questions and answers.
And I love your hair, such a cute fun cut!

Carla said...

What fun! You are one brave girl!!!

Michelle said...

oh Sandra I loved how you did this - answering the questions with video :) I feel like I'm back in the mall with you having a conversation!!

Shaz said...

Thanks for answering these questions live on video Sandra. That is such a cool way to get to know you.

I am also an avid book reader and your list of books sounds interesting so would you mind posting the list on your blog so I can check to see if my library has any of the books you mentioned.

Lara Gisela said...

This was great fun, Sandra. Thanks for doing it. I loved hearing you again. We got to know you better and I confirmed that you are a wonderful person.

Katrina said...

Allie Z said...

This post was fab-u-lous! Thanks for taking the time to prepare and post for us.

Where in Idaho were you? We've talked about moving there. We love the snow, the seasons, the great outdoors, snowboarding, and on and on.

Thanks for the book list. There are a few I'll add to my Shelfari for future reading.

Yes, please post a video tutorial on your templates! That would be so cool. Looking forward to it!

PS- there's two good things you could post about Luke. :) The sunsets and the available hiking. haha


Tina Leigh said...
