Here we go:
1. Best memory?
The day I found out I was pregnant. I actually pinched myself that day. I was all alone when I took the test and the excitement was almost more than I could contain. Mostly because I knew I could now eat entire pizzas and people would look on approvingly. I know my favorite memory should be the day my daughter was born, but since I almost died that day, that memory is a bit of a mix. The day I found out I was going to have a baby was pure euphoria unsullied by any fears.
2. Most terrible day?
Easy. The day my father died. I remember numbly driving down the freeway after, looking around, thinking "It's Monday. People are driving to the grocery store. People are headed to Chili's for dinner with their family. How could he die on a day like this? A day like every other day?"
3. Birth City?
4. Favorite thing to do?
Peruse my favorite blogs with a piping hot fresh mocha and my husband next to me at his computer.
5. Hollywood Crush? and why?
Matthew McConaughey. Do you even have to ask?
6. Favorite food?
My mom's chicken soup. (how novel, I know)
7. City you want to visit most and why?
New York. I have always been fascinated by the attitude, the culture, the fashion, the shopping, the entertainment.
8. Fantasy/dream that you want to come true?
To be a published author would be my dream. My wish would be that my daughter live a full happy life.
9. Favorite sport?
Hmm. Taking my stairs two at a time? Actually, if pressed, I'd have to say baseball because that is what brought my husband and I together. I pretended to like it and he invited me to a game. Presto! Marriage!
10. How long have you been married?
11. Favorite song and why?
"You Were Meant For Me" by Jewel. I used to sing it in the shower when Chris and I were dating. Subliminal messaging. ;)
12. Someone you most admire?
My mother. (Whom I hope doesn't read this and see that I was in the shower while Chris and I were dating. Ha!)
13. Someone you hate and why?
A person who is in someone's life that I care about who is causing her grief. Can I be more vague?
14. Secret crush?
Kevin James from "King of Queens". I like funny!
15. One (maybe 2) rule/s you live by?
Never say something about someone you love behind their back that you wouldn't say to their face. (It took me years to figure this one out!)
Always say "I love you" when you leave.
16. Do you believe in God?
With all of my heart.
17. A dark secret (we won’t tell)
I once keyed a former boss' car. (She was really mean. I mean really mean. I swear. ...Okay, it was wrong.)
18. Most treasured item and why?
My wedding rings. Because they're... my wedding rings?
19. If you could turn back time, what would you do and why?
I would have gone to college earlier and kept at it despite my parents' lack of support.
20. Last but certainly not least, what kind of “work” do you do and do you enjoy it?
This one is as much a mystery to me as it is to you.
Actually, I own a corporate gift business. I started it with my mother five years ago while pregnant, so that I could stay at home. The business ended up being far more lucrative and demanding than I ever imagined. Then we landed a little account called Warner Bros. Heard of it? :) Then...well, we'll save that for a different post. I don't want to kill my buzz.
TAG! YOURE IT!
