~I LOVE cherries, but especially cherry pie filling. I will eat an entire can in one sitting!
~I was a cheerleader in middle and high school, and I still remember some of the cheers!
~I think the big hair styles of the 80's should come back in style (but, really, only because my hair is so thick that I always have big hair!)
~If my husband didn't stop me, I'd have more purses than I could count!
~I cry during almost any movie, including animated ones! (Now, seriously, who didn't cry during the movie UP? And don't even get me started on the movie Hachi!)
~I listen to Christmas music all year long~although during the summer I must do it when I'm by myself or hubby will go crazy!
~I'd like to add about 6 more kids to our family!
~I'm having a hard time accepting that I will be 40 in just 11 months. I still try to tell my kids that I'm 29. Since my daughter will be 16 soon, she tells me I can't say that anymore. I say then I'll tell other's that I'm her sister! She didn't really like that one!!
~I'm still afraid of thunderstorms.
~While I always wanted to be a wife and mother, I never thought that I would love it or them this much!
~I thought I was a pretty dull person until I had to come up with 11 facts about myself!
Now the questions from Shannon:
-What is a fun fact people might not know? Peanut butter cups are my absolute favorite candy, and my kids give them to me for Christmas presents!
-What age did you start driving? 16, but as my daughter nears that age, I'm thinking it should be changed to 20!
-What is your favorite item in your closet? My light blue zippered sweatshirt
-Who has been a major influence in your life? my grandmother's
-What is your dream day like? House gets cleaned, schooling gets done, delicious meals are served and everyone is happy. Honestly, if everyone is happy, that's a good day!
-Favorite song at this moment? I have so many, but right now it is Silent Night or O Holy Night (I told you I loved to listen to Christmas music!!)
-What did you want to be when you grew up? an ice skater or a singer~~funny...I can't do either one very well!
-What is something you have on your to do list? Date night with hubby. We don't do that nearly as much as we should and I really enjoy spending time alone with him.
-Would you prefer to be at the beach or out on the ocean? I've never been to an ocean, so I guess I'll say beach!
-What celebrity or well known figure would you like to have over to dinner? This is a hard one because I've never thought about it, but I'm going to say Rachel Ray, just because she seems to have so much fun in the kitchen and such great ideas!
-What is the short answer to why you started your blog? I hope to help other women become the woman God wants for them to be. And to hold myself accountable also!
