Shouldn't I be getting paid for this?

1. What time did you get up this morning? EARLY! Well before 7am with Landon. I had no choice...daddy is golfing.

2. Diamonds or pearls? Diamonds...they are a girls best friend! Hadn't you heard?


3. What was the last film you saw at the movies? The Hangover, last time we were in Vegas. It was hella funny too!!


4. Favorite TV show? If I answer this question the length of the post will automatically double in size. I watch a lot of TV (recorded constantly on my trusty little DVR, as not to take time away from my daily duties as "Power-Mom!")


5. What do you usually have for breakfast? It's either a bagel or nothing. I HATE breakfast.

6. What is your middle name? Ann


7. What food do you dislike? Another answer which would double the length of this post. I dislike many foods. Much more than you care to read. Trust me.

8. What is your favorite CD? My sister and I were just talking last week about how we have definitely gotten our money's worth out of the Taylor Swift Fearless CD. I could listen to it all day. Lately I have had my fair share of The Wiggles. My CD player in the car won't eject the CD for whatever reason and with my stinkin luck the CD that is trapped in there is The Wiggles. Nothing like 4 creepy 40-something men singing about maidens and ducks, I've always said.


9. What kind of car do you drive? Ford Explorer...this week. (Just playing honey, I'm not even thinking about getting a new car. Maybe.)


10. Favorite sandwich? Turkey


11. What characteristics do you despise? Lying, Cheating, Bad driving (I live in So-Cal, that is a 'characteristic' people), and it really bothers me to be around those who see the bad in everything.


12. Favorite item of clothing? Jeans...GOOD jeans!


13. If you could go anywhere in the world for a vacation, where would you go? I am not a huge fair of air travel. I would just love to have a week in San Diego as a family vacation some day soon.


14. What color is your bathroom? Gobe Desert, by Behr...same color as every other wall in the house, with the exception of Landon's room. I have plans in the works to change that though!


15. Favorite brand of clothing? I love American Eagle and Old Navy. Although, I must say, with every trip to Old Navy, I find less and less stuff I like. Some 'big shot' at Old Navy headquarters has been making changes, and me no likey.


16. Where would you retire? Hopefully somewhere near my children and grandkids.


17. Favorite movies? Too Many; The Notebook, Juno, Chocolat, and many more.


18. Favorite Sport to watch? Baseball


19. Furthest place you have lived? I was born an hour away from where I live now. I grew up 25 minutes away, and spent the early years of our marriage living 2 hours away. I am pretty centralized to So-Cal, and hope it always stays that way. At least I think I hope that!?


20. How many apts.; houses have you lived in? Ummm, lemme think. I guess our home now would bring my grand total to 11!


22. Favorite saying? I'm not sure. Had you asked what my favorite word is I would have instantly typed "bitch!" That's right people, my favorite word is bitch. Go ahead... judge me, bitch (;


23. When is your birthday? February 4th, plenty of time for you all to start saving...


24. Are you a morning person or a night person? I am most certainly a night person, although I am not a horrible morning person. I just dislike being woken up every day before 7 by my 3 year old son who is "soooo firsty" and must have a "dink of miwk" right away.


25. What is your shoe size? 6 1/2


26. Pets? Helllllllll NO! Travis has some boring fish who swim around and don't do anything all day. We puppy sat for our neighbor last month, and then dog sat for my parents a few weeks after that. It will be nothing short of a miracle if we own a dog anytime in the next ummmm 10 years!


27. What did you want to be when you were little? My parents tell a story about the high aspirations I had for myself as a young girl. According to them, they may be lying , I wanted nothing more than to work at a gas station. Whatever, at least I didn't want to drive an ice cream truck like my brother. I remember a time in the 4th grade when we were asked to write an essay on what we wanted to be when we grew up. I wrote that I wanted to be a mom when I grew up. After my teacher read the essays, she asked two other girls and myself to re-write the essay because we hadn't chosen a "real career." It didn't bother me then...it kinda bothers me now. Mrs. Lovejoy was always a bitch* anyway.

* favorite word


28. What are you today? Power Mom by day. Waitress by night.


29. What is your favorite candy? Plain M&M's


30. What is your favorite flower? Tulips

But if I did have curtains I would most certainly have matching napkins.

57. How many keys on your key ring? 3. Car key, house key, mailbox key.

I wish for them to be well adjusted, productive members of society, who never stop dreaming, and who I can only hope will always have the support of Travis and I as they pursue their dreams.
