A bit about me

Can I just tell you how much I love this picture of my husband (Chris) and our two daughters (Bean on shoulders, Ash standing)?! Yes, those are nicknames. No, we weren't trying to copy some movie star and scar them for the rest of their lives. I took this picture on my phone on the fourth of July (kinda obvious with the color scheme and the flag flying proudly behind them). I take lots of pictures with my phone. They don't always turn out as crystal clear as I would like, but I love them all the same. So, that's one thing you now know about me. Not very interesting but it will explain why my pictures are sometimes fuzzy :-)

I think the easiest way to get to know me (besides following my blog) is a simple question and answer blog...I ask the questions and I answer them too :-)

1. What is my favorite color? Yellow. I bet you were thinking pink from the title of my blog. Dressing in pink just makes me feel preppy and feeling preppy makes me feel happy! Yellow is just amazing. It is the light at the end of the tunnel. It is the warmth in the sky. It is energizing, yet soothing.

2. What is my favorite flower? Sunflower. Although, where I live all of the deer eat them! So, I either enjoy them through photographs/paintings, by visiting other gardens that have guard snakes on 24 hour duty to keep the deer away or by adding them to my cart at Trader Joe's.

3. What is my favorite dinner? Filet Mignon (medium rare), garlic mashed potatoes and string beans. A little bit of drool just found itself on the corner of my mouth.

4. What is my favorite dessert? ICE CREAM!!!! I could eat ice cream all day long if (A) - we could afford it and (B) - if we could afford to buy a new wardrobe to keep up with all of that ice cream eating and I guess I will throw in (C) - if it wasn't considered unhealthy.

5. What is my favorite band? U2...hands down!!! (I'm showing my age aren't I?!)

6. What is my favorite reality show? The Voice!! It is actually the only reality show I have ever watched besides the first season of Survivor. Let me just tell you that I love to compete but I do not like to watch other people compete. I always feel sorry for the person who doesn't win but The Voice didn't make me feel that way. I think it was because of the coaches - Adam Levine, Cee-Lo Green, Blake Shelton and Christina Aguilera. I just felt like even the people who didn't make it all the way learned something and had an incredible experience. You'll have to check it out if you haven't seen it. The next season starts right after the Super Bowl.

7. Where is my favorite place to shop? The Loft. Great clothes and great sales!!!

8. Do I like to have my picture taken? NO!!! This is one of the reasons I wanted to start this blog. I need to get comfortable in front of a camera. I usually hide whenever I see a camera come into view. It drives my husband crazy!

9. What is my favorite thing to do with my family? Easy...Friday Family Fun Movie Night!! We eat dinner out, rent a movie from Redbox (genius...pure genius whomever came up with this idea), hangout on the couch and munch on some kind of yummy dessert. During the school year we do this every Friday night. I know, lots of repeats on movies but who doesn't when you have children?!

10. What is my favorite thing to do with my friends? Hang out and chit chat.

11. What is my favorite animal? Polar bear. So snuggly looking yet so deadly. When I was little I had no idea of what they could do to their prey. I just thought they looked like a nice, warm bear to cuddle up with. I still feel that way...from a distance of course ;-)

12. What is my favorite cartoon? The Peanuts. When I was little I loved the comics and the TV specials because I thought they were cute. Now that I am older, I laugh even more because there is so much adult humor written in.

13. What is my dream vacation? A beautiful home on the ocean in the Caribbean, with a butler, cook, housekeeper, shark repellent, jelly fish repellent, sting ray repellent, sand that stays on the beach and not in my hair or swimsuit and a huge umbrella that keeps my family safe from the sun.

14. What is my favorite thing about my husband? His brain!!! The boy is smart!!! Like crazy smart!!!

15. What are my favorite things about my daughters? Ash has a huge heart! Bean has a huge imagination!

Are there any questions that you would like to ask? I'll answer them if I can.

Now that you know a bit about me, I hope you'll stick around to see what pops into my brain and finds it way onto this blog!!
