I've been tagged. :) I always wanted to be tagged - THANKS Kate!! :D

Favorite person (outside family)? Hmm...it's hard too hard!! There are more than one :)

Favorite food? Ice Cream. I just sat down and ate an ENTIRE pint of Target's Archer Farms brand "sea salt pretzle" - HOW did it go so fast and WHAT was I thinking? Oh and chinese food....probably not the 'real' stuff - but the American take out variety. :)

Quirks about you? I'm so wierd. I have this pillow.....I can't sleep without it. Seriously. So sad. I say "at the end of the day" ALL the stinking TIME!! Oh and I also say "that's so funny!" a lot too - like, DUH - if I laughed, then that means it's funny . . . WHY do I need to then TELL you that again? I'm so OCD about some things that it annoys those around me. Sorry, others.

How would the person who loves you most describe you in ten words or less? Hm...this assumes that I know who loves me the most. Let's see....funny, loud, H-O-T, feet permanently in mouth, caring, loving, REDICULOUS. (Yeah that's probably pretty close)

Any regrets in life? I regret not being willing to talk about the things I was feeling after I had my first baby (postpartum depression) - and missing out on quite a few months because I was afraid I was the only person on the planet who could possibly feel so horrible. Or maybe I regret not realizing it sooner??

Favorite Charity/Cause? NTM & Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep

Favorite Blog recently? http://mom4life.typepad.com/mom_4_life/from_a_mom_4_life/index.html

Something you can’t get enough of? Ice cream. Oh wait, that probably doesn't count huh? Photographing the world & people around me. Family.

Worst job you’ve ever had? I worked at a plant nursery when I was a kid and I stood in one place ALL day, poking holes in the tiny pots of dirt and then planting the seeds - I did THOUSANDS of them. UGH. I didn't mind the dirt - just the monotony!

What job would you pay NOT to have? Dishwasher/Laundry-do-er. (who wants the $$?)

If you could be a fly on the wall, where? Um...I would want to be watching my sister and her family in the Philippines but I would NEVER be satisfied to JUST be a fly on the wall and not be able to talk with them and give those babies hugs. :)

Favorite Bible verse right now? As always, Romans 5:8 - But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Guilty Pleasure? Ice Cream. (see the theme?) Oh and I LOVE to get out - doesn't matter where or really who I'm with - just "out" :)

Got any confessions? Nah. It's pretty much all out there. You guys have figured out that I am just NOT normal by now, right?

If you HAD to spend $1,000 on YOURSELF, how would you spend it? It wouldn't even cover the camera lens I am obsessing and drooling over - it would go SO very fast!

Least favorite thing about your house? The house around me all look too similar. :(

One thing you are bad at? Only one? WOW . . . I'm bad at saying "I'm sorry" too much- I apologize for everything and anything - drives some crazy :)

One thing you’re good at? I am EXCELLENT - no, extremely talented in the diverse field of Conversation. (talking)

If you could change something about your circumstances, what? Hm . . . not sure what I'd change really . . . things aren't perfect but God is in control and I wouldn't want it any other way.

Who would you like to meet someday? Um . . . I have no idea - so many people. On a stranger note, I've always thought that if I met Jennifer Garner we'd end up getting along REALLY well and being like, best friends. How wierd is THAT?!? :)

What makes you feel sexy? Hee hee hee :)

Who is your real life hero? There are a LOT of people that I look up to and think an awful lot of - too many to name. How cool is THAT though, so many wonderful people to be examples to me! :)

What is the hardest part of your job? Nap time is quickly being outgrown - BOO HOO!

When are you most relaxed? Some people might tell you I am not a very relaxed person. They aren't lying. MOST relaxed?? Uh...it's hard to say.

What stresses you out? Everything - HA! :)

What can you not live without? My family, my friends, my Bible, my camera, at least an OCCASIONAL shower . . . and then the list goes on and on, becoming SO shallow and girly :)

Do you agree or disagree with the recent article that reported that blogs are authored by narcissists? Huh? I don't really care what anybody else thinks . . . oh wait, does that make me sound like a narcissist?? :)

Why do you blog? To let people (clients, family, friends) know what's going on in my life - as far as "the business" and "my life" goes :)

I don't know hardly any bloggers but I will go ahead and at LEAST tag a couple of them - here goes:

TAG - YOU'RE IT! :)

Ha! You're funny! And what's all the hype about that sea salt pretzel ice cream? Sounds weird, but maybe I'm just behind the times. What happened to your lifetime obsession with mint chocolate chip? Oh yeah, and thanks for tagging me. We'll see if I get around to doing it... Love u!

OK here's the "deal" with the sea salt pretzle ice cream. :)

Caramel ice cream with swirls of chocolate fudge (not too much!) and yummy sticky caramel. MMMMM - all swirled through it. Plus, chocolate covered pretzle sticks. OH MY GOODNESS. It is SOO good. Totally kickin' mint chocolate chip's butt right now :D

Markus and Sarah said...
