answering your questions

Happy Monday!!

Thank you so much for all your questions!  These were a lot of fun to answer, and to the one smartass out there – well, you know who you are and I love you anyways! :)

Here are the answers to my questions – I hope I didn’t miss any.  Hannah’s will be posted in a separate post after I get done interviewing her. 


Daddy M (aka my husband) asks:

“What’s for dinner?”

And my answer to this always is: “You’ll eat it and you’ll LIKE it!”. :)

Connie at The Young and the Relentless asks:

“What’s your favorite fashion trend for spring?”

Great question!  I am loving ruffles (but not too many) and asymmetrical lines in my tops this year!

Brian at waystationone asks:

“You always seem to capture amazing pics...what do you look for before you snap?”

Aw, thanks.  The main thing for me is great lighting, if the sun is out and bright I love to start snapping pics. 

Beth at Manic Mother asks:

“What you like most and least about being a mom?”

What I like the most is just watching these little souls grow and develop.  They amaze me every day.

What I like the least is dealing with the anxiety that is always there – the worries and “what if’s”. 

Julie at Wife.Mom.Nurse asks:

“If you could travel anywhere in the world, and money is not an object, where would you go?”

I would go to New York City and stay in the best hotels and dine at the best restaurants and I would see every single show on Broadway.  And shop, shop, shop. 

Molly at I’m a Sleeper Baker asks:

“Is Jacob from Lost good, or evil?”

I think he is good, but I think we will know more very soon!  After all there are only a few episodes left…

Sara at Domestically Challenged asks:

“How do you feel about peanut butter?”

I love it so much I used to ask Santa to put a jar in my stocking for Christmas.

Santa rules. 

Katie Lane and Sunshine and Bubblegum asks:

“Can I ask you for a $1000. Would that count??”

Sure, after all I said you could ASK me anything.  :) 

J.J. at I’d Rather be Laughing asks:

“What is your favorite movie”


“If you could start a business...with money begin no object, what would it be?”

I have a lot of favorite movies.  Sabrina (the Audrey Hepburn version), The Princess Bride, The Last of the Mohicans, Love Actually, The Holiday, The Bourne Movies… 

If I could start a business it would involve fashion – designing my own line of clothes, shoes, and handbags sounds perfect to me (although first I need to go to fashion design school). 

Heather Oz at Oswald Cuties asks:

“How do you manage blogging and reading blogs? Do you visit every blog that leaves you a comment? Do you email back to every comment?”

I do the best I can.  Some days that means I get around to visiting everyone and leaving comments and some days that means I have to skip a lot of posts.  But I always try to visit(and comment) on my favorites and/or my own consistent blog visitors (and comment leavers). 

I do not reply to every comment.  I do not always visit every blog that leaves a comment, but if they come back again I will usually go check them out.  I try to be polite, but realistic…blogging is time consuming and sometimes I have no time to consume.  Allowing myself to no longer feel the pressure to keep up has been such a relief!

The Blonde Duck asks:

“What's your favorite childhood food you love to indulge in?”

Peanut butter.

“And what's your favorite dessert?”

Cake and ice cream.  Just about any kind as long as it’s together and a good match.

“Favorite pie?”

Lemon meringue!!!

Roxy at Motivating Mommies asks:

“What is the best trait about your husband?”

That he has great taste in (a) woman!!  :)  My husband has many awesome traits, but one of his best is just how great he is with and around kids and how willing he always is to help out, even if he has had a looong day at the office.

Tracy at Welcome to Our World asks:

“What is your favorite tv show, book, hobby, etc?”

My favorite TV show is LOST and I don’t care that I totally don’t understand it.  It is riveting! 

I do not have many hobbies so I have to pick working out and blogging.  Oh, and reading, cooking, and eating, and anything WINE. 

Debi at Who Says 8 is Enough asks:

“If you could go back and live in any time period, which would it be and why?”

This question is stumping me the most!  There are so many time periods I would like to EXPERIENCE, but I’m not sure how long I’d want to live in them.  I would definitely like to visit the 1800’s and see how long I’d last in a corset and hoop skirt.   Probably because I read far to many romance novels when I was younger. 

Pinkie at Pinkie and the Bean asks:

“My question for you is I know you're on Goodreads, so what is the latest book that you've read and would recommend?”

I have read two great books this year.  A couple weeks ago I finished The Help, by Kathryn Stockett.  I had no idea what it was about, I just saw in on the best seller list week after week after week and finally decided I needed to read it.  Wonderful book.

I also loved the memoir The Middle Place by Kelly Corrigan. 

Tesa at 2 Wired 2 Tired asks:

“Why did you start blogging?”

I have a photo blog of the kids that I used to update family, and when I saw this fascinating thing called blogger and how cool it was I just had to get on board.

Megan at Infertile Myrtle asks:

“We're about an hour or so from each other. Are we ever gonna meet? ;0)”

 I hope so!  :)

Erin said...

I love ruffles, too!

I'm glad we're on the same page about's so hard trying to maintain a balance. I like to do what I can, but it's getting more and more time consuming. I think I'm a little addicted....oy!

Katie Lane said...

Oh man!

Connie Weiss said...

I want to go to New York with you!!

The Blonde Duck said...

I loved getting to know you better!

Jingle said...

Best wishes on everything you do!

blueviolet said...

Hey, that was fun! Your two books are on my list. I have recently discovered how much I love memoirs!!!

liz said...

This was fun, and I'm kind of chuckling at a couple questions. Like, it's never crossed my mind that someone would have an opinion on peanut butter... who knew?!

Tamela said...

haha love your answers!

otin said...

There was a lot of info in that post!

I agree with what you say about blog reading. It is impossible to read everything.

I love anything with peanut butter, especially peanut butter and chocolate candy!

I liked the first season of LOST but then I LOST interest! lol

Queenie Jeannie said...

Cool beans!

I didn't submit a question. I'm altogether too nosey and weird, lol!

Molly said...

great post, I love ones like this.

I watched the LOST episode, I was so bummed about Sun and Jin!!!! Only a few episodes left...: (

McGillicutty said...

love it... peanut butter and me have a love hate relationship... sometimes I love it and sometimes I don't but I always love it with chocolate.. as in Reeses!!!

Melissa B. said...

Fun times! But peanut butter at Christmas? You really MUST be a fan...

HeatherOz said...

wow! You rock for including links to EVERY question! You know, that is exactly what I wanted to hear to my question! I just don't have time to visit every blog that visits or leaves me a comment but it makes me feel so guilty. I have started visiting blogs only on Mon Wed and Fri but then I try to catch up on everything that I missed and it takes FOREVER! I think I need to rethink the situation!

Mr. Stupid said...

This was fun. Loved your answers. I am your newest follower.
Have a good day!:)

Annie said...

Is so nice to know more about you. said...

That was fun :)

Oh, yeah...since money is no object, I will fly out to NY and we could eat at every awesome restaurant and go shopping too!

Love this post! So fun to get to know you a little better. Glad you started blogging too - it is pretty cool.

Mama Michie (aka Michaela) said...

I loved reading your replies to the questions. It's always fun to get to know other bloggers!

Pinkie said...

Yay! I made the list. I watch Lost, too, and nope, I don't completely understand it all either but I love it. I'm a few episodes behind though. Need to get caught up soon.
I'm gonna look into those 2 books you mentioned.

Your Q & A was so fun. Great idea.
