Favorite Restaurant

I am determined to continue with the question friday’s despite the lack of reponse (respond below and lets get some conversation going!).

Food seems to be a topic just about everybody is willing to talk about so, what is your favorite restaurant and why?


Mine is probably Thunder Burger & Bar in the Georgetown area of Washington DC. Their burgers are some of the best i have ever had and their Kobe beef burger (Called Love me Tender) is silly delicious. I honestly have not had a single bad thing there. Last summer I found myself spending Wednesday’s up in Georgetown in order to eat their Wild Wednesday menu item. Each Wednesday they make some sort of food item from a different animal that you don’t typically see at restaurants. They were all pretty tasty. If you are in DC you should make a stop at Thunder Burger and then go around the corner to Baked & Wired for some dessert (the best cupcakes ever!).

What if the next five years were your best five years?

Here is the second Friday question. I have to admit, I stole this question from someone. I can’t be too honest about it though, because I have no idea who I stole it from. So if you see it somewhere else don’t think they stole it, because they probably didn’t.

What if the next five years were your best five years? What would that include?

Ever since I heard this question I have periodically thought about what would happen in the next five years if I looked back on my deathbed (morbid I know) and said these were the best five years of my life. It is a tough question for sure and could encapsulate a lot of things, so I will provide only the highlights and not go in detail at all.

  • Married
  • One or maybe two kids (hey it could happen!)
  • Have a major impact in Europe through my ministry, whether I get credit or not
  • Visit as many countries as possible in greater Europe

That’s about it for me. Please comment below giving me one or a few of the things that you would do to view the next five years as your best ever!

Dream vacation, what is yours?

So I’m going to try to be a bit more consistent with my blog posts. I am going to continue doing the Prayer Monday’s, Wednesday’s I will be doing a serious topic of some sort and Friday’s I will be trying something new starting today. Every Friday I am going to post a question, answer it for myself briefly and then encourage everyone who stops by to answer it if they feel so inclined. The more comments we get the better this will work so lets start a conversation.

I actually wrote this two days ago, because as some of you know I am in Anchorage, Alaska for 10 days and so I pre-wrote blogs for the next week and a half. Since I am in Alaska, I thought I would start off with a vacation question.

What is your dream vacation? Have you already been on it or is it a “maybe in the future” kind of thing?

Ever since I started studying German in Middle School I always wanted to visit there. I had no specific place in mind, but I kind of expected to see people in lederhosen. In 2009 I got to go to Germany and then followed it up with a second trip the following year while determining if God was calling me there with GEM. Unfortunately though, I did not see any lederhosen.

My other dream vacation may not sound like what most people think of when they think vacation spots. I really want to go to the Democratic Republic of Congo (not going to happen until the fighting stops) because my great-grandpa was a missionary there. He built a church which I would love to find, but I highly doubt it is still there.


I would love to hear where you want to go and why, so comment below and feel free to give others some tips if you have been a place they want to go.
