Are you a hospitality queen?

I just discovered a great new blog Southern Fried Dreams. This girl has some great ideas and recipes. While I was reading through her blog I found this little quiz. It was so cute that I wanted to put it on my blog. I hope she doesn't mind :)
I LOVE being a hostess. One of my favorite things to do on the weekends is to have people over to our house for parties. We aren't formal people at all, but we do like to have our friends over to eat, have fun and hang out. Our favorite summer parties are cookouts and in the fall/winter when it's too cold to be outside we like to have to have people over to watch football. Graig loves football, me not so much but it's more fun when we have people over to watch the games. Since we have kids most of our parties end pretty 10pm (when I was in college that is the time we were getting ready to go out not go to sleep-ha ha!) but it's still fun to get together with friends. We are having a little party on Saturday night with some other baseball families. It should be fun!
I took this quiz and got a 26!

Thanks so much for your prayers! Blogging friends amaze me. I know prayers carried me through those rough weeks in the hospital and recovery.

Hope your summer is going well!
