Dinner Dates

For some reason a few weeks ago I was thinking about who I would have dinner with if I could choose anyone. My list came together very quickly and I had two categories: a dinner party with five people and a one-on-one dinner. My list VERY STRONGLY tells who I am and what I believe in. The majority of Americans would probably hate my list. Seriously. I told Robert about my list and challenged him to come up with one of his own. In true Robert fashion, it took him awhile to get it together but he finally did so now I can post our lists!

Robert's Dinner Party:
  1. Lou Holtz -College Football Coach
  2. Major Richard "Dick" Winters - World War II Veteran, Band of Brothers
  3. Rick Burgess - The Rick and Bubba Radio Show
  4. Billy Graham
  5. George W. Bush
Robert's One-on-One Dinner:
  1. Voddie Baucham
Lane's Dinner Party:
  1. George W. Bush
  2. Voddie Baucham
  3. Haley Barbour - Mississippi Governor
  4. Glenn Beck - The Glenn Beck Show, Fox News
  5. James Dobson - Focus on the Family
Lane One-on-One Dinner:
  1. Michelle Duggar - Wife and Mom of 19
My list shows that I love the family and politics....and probably it also shows my crush on middle aged politicians. Yikes. :) I just love Haley and George W. to pieces...and their accents don't hurt one bit!!! And ya'll, I LOVE Michelle Duggar. I know very few people (really only like one person) who like her and think what she does is noble. I have heard SO many people bash her and her family. But I simply adore her and I would love nothing more than to share a meal with her. Her demenor and her servant's heart is really unlike anyone I have ever seen. I am not saying that I am going to have 19 kids...because I'm not, but if I could be like her I would consider it an honor. And if you just make fun of her, but don't know anything about her...that's unfair. And if your first questions is, "How can they afford all of those kids?" (and you are saying they shouldn't have that many b/c they could never afford it)....I will gladly tell you that they have NO DEBT. None. Do you know anyone else that has no debt? Yeah, me either. I just love her. I will get off my soap box now. :)
A person that is on both of our lists that you might not recognize is Voddie Baucham. He's a Southern Baptist pastor that BRINGS THE WORD, especially when it comes to the family. Again, I know like one person who wouldn't be totally offended by him. Robert and I love him and the things that he stands for. One of his books, Family Driven Faith, has forever changed how our family will operate. His name is linked in our lists and I strongly encourage you to check him out.

I would LOVE it if everyone reading this would post their lists in the comments! I have recently discovered that there are a lot of people that read this that I didn't know leave a comment!


  1. Great idea...I don't know who I would choose... Maybe
    1. George W. Bush
    2. Laura Bush
    3. James Dobson
    4. Condoliza Rice
    5. Oliver North

  2. I love Michelle Duggar!
    But my party is way different:
    Mary Kate Olson, Andrew Bird, Ashton Kutcher, Zooey Deschenel, annnnd Milo Ventimiglia
    I love America, but if I am having a dinner party, its gonna more party and less dinner.
    One on one? Definitely JK Rowling.
    I am so imature.

  3. I'm so with you about Michelle Duggar!!! I know so many people who bash her. They say there's no way they can "raise" 19 kids themselves and that the kids are raising each other...well, I know PLENTY of families who only have one or two kids and aren't nearly as good of parents as Jim and Michelle. They are raising moral productive citizens who DON'T live off the government!!!!
