Attached or Single? Attached
Best friend - Hubby
Cake or Pie - Definitely pie, Banana Cream Pie
Day of Choice - Saturday
Essential item - foundation, mascara and lip gloss
Favorite color - green
Gummy bears or worms - gummy bears
Home Town - Omaha, Nebraska - Go Huskers!!!!!!
Favorite Indulgence - designer handbags and shoes and of course paper goods
January or July - hands down July, I hate the cold!!!!
Kids - three, one girl and two boys
Life isn't complete without ? - my family
Marriage Date - Are you ready for this? March 31, 1990, 18 years. We got married right out of college when we were 23. (And if you did the math on that... yes, I am 41. OUCH!!!! I'm feeling old.)
Number of brothers and sisters - one sister and a brother who died at birth
Oranges or Apples - definitely oranges. I love how juicy they are.
Phobias - Mice and rats are my worst ever, then snakes. Which really interferes with my daughter having a pony because rats and mice are all over the barn. When I have to be there, I go straight to the viewing room or I stay outside. I can't handle walking down the aisles of the barn and if I have to (which I avoid at all costs), I look straight ahead and never, ever look in any of the stalls where they are scampering around.
Quote - "Be kind to people" and "Don't sweat the small stuff".
Reasons to Smile - My children. My oldest son has many struggles that he has to try to control on a daily basis. When I know he has conquered one, that makes me smile enormously because that's a huge accomplishment for him. He has medical issues and behavior problems that he has to deal with daily. It is one big learning process for my husband and I and for our son and the doctors. My heart breaks because for a little guy, he has had a lot to deal with his whole life. Some day I will share more on him.
Season of Choice - That's a hard one. It's between summer and fall. Spring doesn't happen around here in Chicago. It seems like we go from cold to hot, skipping the spring season. I love the warm weather of summer and walking along the beach. But I have to say, fall is a gorgeous time of year and my favorite season to buy clothes. My favorite and most comfortable outfit to wear is a turtleneck with jeans and driving loafers.
Tag five people- I'm tagging all those bloggers out there who haven't gotten this yet. Let me know if you do it, so I can read your list.
Unknown fact about me - Some people think I'm snobby, but really I'm just shy. I'm horrible at small talk with someone I just met and that is a goal of mine that I'm working on. I'm much more comfortable at small parties than I am at big ones.
Vegetable- Grilled asparagus YUM!!!
Worst habit - Being messy (My house is clean as in the "cleanliness" aspect, but messy as to stuff lying around and it drives my husband crazy. My kitchen island is a dumping ground for me. Whenever I walk in the door, the pile goes there. I am working on it though. My husband can't figure out why I am such a "clean freak" but not a "neat freak". He thinks those should go together.)
X-Ray or Ultrasound- Definitely ultrasounds. Ultrasounds of my children were just so amazing to me.
Your favorite food- Pasta
Zodiac sign - Pisces
Favorite zoo animals - We were just at Lincoln Park Zoo yesterday. The gorillas were so fascinating to watch.
