If you could be on a reality show which one would you choose?
It would be easier to tell you which ones I would NOT be on. I would not be on Survivor because I don't enjoy "roughing it." I also would most certainly NOT be on that Discovery Channel show, Naked and Afraid. I am a housewife (although I hate that term), but I would not be on any of those Real Housewives of . . shows because I am far too boring. I would love to be on The Voice or American Idol, but alas, I have no musical talent. Actually, I have no real talents, so I can't be on America's Got Talent or X Factor either. So, what's left? Maybe Big Brother?? That's not really my cup of tea, either, but at least it does't require eating bugs or making a complete fool of myself on stage. What I would really like is to be on one of those home renovation shows where you're in the hardware store and they choose you for a complete bathroom/kitchen/yard renovation and it's completely free!!
Name one thing you have saved from your childhood?
Thanks to my mom, I have lots of things saved from childhood. My daughters have actually played with several of my old dolls, including my Cabbage Patch Kids. I also have a plastic bin in the attic that is full of old trophies and awards. The only thing from my childhood that I see on a daily basis is this decorative plate. It used to hang in my grandmother's kitchen and, now it hangs in mine.
If your life had a theme song what would it be?
This one is tough because there are so many great songs and I think different songs fit my life at different times. I needed a little help so I decided to do what Kim did and take this Buzzfeed quiz to determine my Personal theme song (because we all know I love those Buzzfeed quizzes!) According to the quiz, my theme song should be Don't Stop Believin' by Journey because "You have never once stopped believin’. I hate to admit it ,but that statement is so incredibly not true. So, instead of that one, I'm going with the same one Rabia chose - Manic Monday by the Bangles.
Where is your happy place?
I have a couple happy places - it just depends on my mood. Sometimes, my happy place is sitting at a coffee shop with my laptop and a caramel macchiato. Sometimes, my happy place is snuggled up on the couch watching a movie with my family. Sometimes, my happy place is my bed when I am tired and I can snuggle up under the covers and finally relax.
What is one thing about your home that you and your spouse disagree on?
Our kitchen table. We live in the house where he grew up. When we bought it from his parents, we "inherited" several furniture pieces, one of which was the kitchen table. It is scratched and has some marks on it - including some of his own homework carved in to the wood. I say it is worn and we need a new one. He says it has history and likes watching his children do homework on the same table he and his siblings did. I see his point, but I would still like a new table.
What is your favorite fruit?
To eat raw, I would say grapes. My favorite fruit "flavor," however, would be cherry.
Bowtie or regular tie?
I'm a traditional gal and I prefer a regular tie. I'm not a huge fan of the bowtie.
Mexican or Italian (food, not men)?
Both. Either. Today I had Mexican for lunch and Italian for supper.
Where do you want to go on Summer vacation?
Do I have to wait until summer?? Really, I could use a vacation right now. My husband and I have actually been discussing where we could go for a long weekend kind of thing. Our biggest problem is finding a time on the calendar when we are both free to go for 3-4 days in a row.
If I could choose anywhere and magically transport myself there right this moment, it would look something like this . . . . . .
What are your go-to shoes in your closet?
Black Clark's. Not too formal; not too casual. Except, if I was at that beach in the picture. Then, I wouldn't be wearing any shoes at all.
Added Bonus Question: When it comes to St Patrick's Day, do you do celebrate in any special way?
I'm adding this question for myself so that I can call this a Finish the Sentence Friday post, but the answer is, "no." I do not do anything special for St. Patrick's day. I will try to wear green and dress my kids in green if I actually remember that it's a special day, but that's pretty much it. How about you?
This is a dual purpose post because I am the ultimate multi-tasker.
