Hopes and Dreams

Well, we're on our way to Texas right now for a weekend with the kids. I've been packing for days, we have a  cooler stuffed with everything that youngest GRANDson Ewan might be hungry for! I'm not taking any chances, I'm bringing it all!

It's a long trip, so along the way we'll listen to the radio, I'll take some pictures and we may even play the Hopes and Dreams Game. 
I saw it here and it sounds like a good way to pass the time! Jesse has a list of thirty questions, some we've never asked each other...and that's saying something since we've known each other for 40+ years!

Describe 3 legitimate fears you have and explain how they became fears.Illness, losing our parents and the future. All of these are unknowns, and they do scare me.

What are the 5 things that make you most happy right now? My husband, kids, grandkids, home, and travel!

What is the hardest thing you have ever experienced? Being a Mom to my Mom, Alzheimer's/Dementia, I miss her advice.

What is your dream job, and why? Guy Fieri's job, duh!

You guys pick a question to answer.... be honest!

What are 5 passions you have?
List 10 people who have influenced you and describe how.
Describe your most embarrassing moment.
Describe 10 pet peeves you have.
What are your 5 greatest accomplishments?
What is the thing you most wish you were great at?
What has been the most difficult thing you have had to forgive?
If you could live anywhere, where would it be and why?
Describe 3 significant memories from your childhood.
If you could have one SUPERPOWER, what would it be and what would you do with it first?
Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years? 15 years?
What do you think people misunderstand most about you?
List 10 things you would hope to be remembered for.


  1. Joyce, have a great time in Texas. I just did an over 30 hour drive with my husband, and we could have used some of these questions to pass the time. Joni

    1. We just got back from our trip and we did have a great time! The questions helped pass the time... I have to say I was able to stretch the "Most embarrassing moment" question!!

  2. Have a fantastic trip...I'm hoping for a fall dash to Colorado, but not sure it's in the cards this year.

    1. Colorado sounds like so much fun! We lucked out with cooler weather this time in Texas. We actually were able to do a little hiking this time!

  3. Sounds like a fun game that we may have to try next month when we go on vacation. A couple of your answers are the same as mine would be like the 5 things that make you happy. And in that exact order. Have fun in Texas.

    1. I just noticed I only wrote 4 things that make me happy... the 5th would have to be food!!!

  4. I love these questions! Such great conversation starters! I will answer the thing that people misunderstand about me.....I am a bit shy and people think I am a snob! Not true at all!

    1. You think you know someone after 43 years but once you start digging you can always find out something new!

  5. What I most wish I was good at?
    I wish I was a great singer, like Carrie Underwood! LOL
    Can't even carry a simple tune!

    1. Me too, at least the salary part! If I started over to build a career, I really think I would have loved catering. Never too late...
