In case you were wondering.

This is my family blog and I am always blogging about my kids or food. Sometimes I feel like I don't really say much about myself. Yesterday Heather posted 'A little bit about me' and I thought it sounded fun. It helped me get to know her better so, hopefully this will help you get to know me better.
If you already know me...guess my answers!

1. What is your favorite thing to snack on while you are blogging?

I like to snack on goldfish crackers or grapes. I was addicted to candy corn for a couple of weeks, but that came to a screeching halt!!

I HAVE to have a glass of water on the coaster next to the mouse.

2. What is one thing you wouldn't want to live without?

I don’t think I could live without music! I love making music, listening to music, ALL things music! I can always find a good song to listen to. Don’t you just love how music reminds you of different times in your life? I love to turn on the tunes and let the memories flood my head.

I love going to church and listening to the choir. I love how God speaks to me through music and lyrics.

We always have music playing in our house. I love to see the kids dancing and singing and acting silly. It makes my heart happy! Layla is teaching Hayden to dance and it is super funny to watch!

3. Beach, Mountains, or Farm? Where would you live if you had a choice?

If I had to live somewhere day in and day out I would pick a Farm. I love wide open spaces with trees and room to roam.

However, I could have a vacation home on the beach and one in the mountains too. Can I have three homes and just move around monthly depending on the weather? See # 13 on making choices...hee hee.

4. What's your least favorite chore/household duty?

My least favorite household chore would be emptying the dishwasher.

5. Who do people say you remind them of?

I’m not sure who people say I remind them of. This question was the hardest for me. People have told me I look like Elisabeth Shue. However that was years ago.

Gary thinks I remind him of Paula Marshal ‘Allison Brooks’ from the show Gary Unmarried. I suppose I do act silly like her and say GAaaRrrrYeee like she does.

Come to think of it our house may be bugged and she heard me say it so many times…she copied ME!!

6. Do you prefer parties and socializing or staying home with the family?

I am a stay at home mom, so I am here all the time. I love being at home with my family. I love having us all here playing, cooking and making memories…

BUT I love to talk and visit and be with friends. Gary and I were together for 8 years (married for 5) before we had kids. Sometimes I miss that ‘get up and go’ to dinner/party life style.

7. What's your all time favorite movie?

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

8. Do you sleep in your make-up or remove it like a good little girl every night?

I always take my makeup off before bed, unless I am just SUPER exhausted.

9. Do you have a hidden talent or a deep desire to learn something that you've never had a chance to learn? What is it?

It really isn’t a hidden talent. Most people that know me in real life know that I love to act. I went to Tyler Junior College on a drama scholarship. Sometimes I wish I had time to do local theatre. It is so time consuming, but when my kiddos are older I will do it!

10. What's one strange thing you're really good at?

Strangely I am good at staring; I love staring. I am a great people watcher. I have always been able to stare people down and remember details about them. I can remember what they were wearing, from their hat to their shoes.

My mom worried about me when I was little because I would stare at people all the time. I think she was worried they would get annoyed by my glares.

11. What first attracted you to your spouse?

I was first attracted to Gary when I saw the way he is with people. He is funny and open and can talk to anyone about anything. He is so easy going and just goes with the flow. When we first met we worked together and he was so good with people! I wanted to talk to him all the time and that meant looking at him. He is so handsome. I’m glad I still get to talk to and look at him EVERYDAY.

12. What is something you love to smell?

I love when I hug Gary’s neck and I get a scent of his cologne. I love smelling my freshly bathed kids.

13. Tell something about you that you know irritates people.

I have a very hard time making decisions on my own. I can’t do the simplest things like pick out a restaurant. Oh gosh then get me to the restaurant…what do I order?? And don’t even ask me to pick out a movie…arghhhh.

I know for a fact I drive people nuts with my indecisiveness. I have been working on this. I am getting much better :)

14. When you have extra money, what's the first thing you think to do with it?

Ummmm…SPEND IT!!!

15. Are you a silent laugher or a loud laugher? What makes you laugh the hardest?

I am a loud laugher, always have been always will be. I love to laugh and the things my kids say or do. They usually make me laugh the hardest. Gary is the funniest person I know, so he really gets me laughing. Between my kids and him my abs get a great workout. Gary should be a comedian…on stage telling his funny jokes ;)

Gosh I'm painting a picture of a very loud household. HA!

16. Where is your favorite place to shop?

I LOVE Target.

But I also like Wal-Mart, Ross, The Children’s Place, Hobby Lobby, & Old Navy.

17. What's one thing you'd do more often if you had more time?

If I had more time, I’d read more. I love getting lost in a great book.

18. Are you a big spender or frugal?

Frugal, frugal, Frugal! I love to get a good deal!! It is a huge adrenaline rush for me.

19. Who is your favorite character of all time? (from a movie or a book, can't be real)

My favorite character of all time is probably Strawberry Shortcake. I loved her when I was little. I still have the dolls from way back then, and they are sitting on a shelf in Layla’s room. I still have my Strawberry Shortcake lunch box too.

20. Would you want to be famous?

I would love to be famous, but wouldn’t want it alter my family dynamic.

~The End~

I am sorry about your bleeding retinas...I know it is a long post.
