What is the last thing you watched on TV?
Last night (I wrote this on Friday, 3/14/14), my hubby was watching a movie called Now You See Me. It's about four magicians who use their magic and magic shows to steal money. One of the magicians is played by Woddy Harrleson and Mark Ruffalo plays a detective trying to catch them. Morgan Freeman also stars in the movie that has a surprise twist at the end!
When did you last step outside? What were you doing?
Just a couple hours ago (Friday, around noon) to see why my dog was barking!
What is on the walls of the room you are in right now?
I'm in my office. On my right is a calendar with mages from Paris that my mom gave me for Christmas. My hubby and I went to Paris in December 2012 and I loved it!
You will notice there are no appointments, etc. written on this calendar. That's because all that stuff is on the other wall. When this room was my husband's office, he created a giant whiteboard with some special paint. Now, it's mine and I love it! It helps me keep track of all the events of the week and all my blogging stuff!
If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy?
First, I would pay of our house and put money away for my three daughters' college educations and weddings. After that, I would spend a good chunk on some home renovations.
Tell me something about you that most people don’t know.
Michelle asked me this last week for Ask Away Friday and I had a hard time coming up with an answer! Aside from what I told her, I was voted "Most Dependable" in both 8th grade and 12th grade. I guess I'm nothing if not consistent - and dependable!
Who made the last incoming call on your phone?
On the home phone was our pest control company to schedule our quarterly service. (Exciting, huh?) On my cell phone, was the representative for the yearbook company my daughters' elementary school uses. I am the yearbook coordinator and I had called to ask her a question, so she called me back.
If you could change something about your home, without worry about expense or mess, what would you do?
Either our master bath or the kitchen. The master bath is tight and needs some repairs anyway. The kitchen has wonderful countertops and appliances, but the layout is a little awkward and it's a bit small.
What was the last thing you bought?
A grande caramel macchiato at Starbucks!
Would you go bungee jumping or sky diving?
NEVER! I don't like heights or anything dangerous.
If you could eat lunch with one famous person, who would it be?
I honestly have absolutely no idea! Maybe Ree Drummond because she should cook me something yummy and tell me how to become a multi-millionaire from blogging!
Which store would you choose to max out your credit card?
White House Black Market. I love their clothes, but they are pricey. (Last time I went in there, my fashion conscious six year old said she wished they had a kids' version of that store!)
Is the glass half empty or half full?
Most of the time, half-full. I won't lie, though. I've been a bit stressed lately and have probably had more of a half-empty attitude.
What’s the farthest-away place you’ve been?
|At the base of the Eiffel Tower|
|The Arc de Triomphe|
|Me on top of the Arc with a death grip on the "so you don't fall off and die" safety bars|
|Notre Dame - so amazing.|
|Locks on a bridge near Notre Dame|
What’s under your bed?
Dust and probably a couple lost socks waiting to be found!
What is your favorite time of day?
Some days, after the rush of the morning, once everyone is off to school, I get to come back home and spend some quality time with the internet. I read blogs, write blog posts, and try to schedule social media posts. Some (like my family) find it a bit strange that such things soothe me - but if you are a blogger reading this, you understand.
Other days, when I haven't gotten that "down time," it's the evenings. Once dinner is cleaned up and homework is finished. The kids are in the next room quiet and/or laughing. Hubby is home and all is calm.
I also wrote this post about how I love looking in on my sleeping children one last time before I go to bed.
What Inspires You?
Music inspires me. I am not musically talented, but I wish I was. I love the feelings music can evoke. I am also inspired by other bloggers. I am continually amazed by the quality and creativity of the blogs I read.
