1. What is your favorite childhood memory?
There are so many! But some of my fondest are the family reunion/vacations I went on every summer with my mom's side of the family. More often than not we went to Estes Park, Colorado (we are from Colorado). I just loved being with my grandparents, aunts & uncles, & my cousins. We still get together and I look forward to it all year. This is a picture from the one two years ago in Denver.
2. What is your favorite quality about yourself?
I'm a hard worker and I will do anything I can for my family & friends.
3. What is your favorite thing that your child does?
I love that my son Noa can totally change the subject when he wants to get out of something. And man he does it well!! Sometimes he does it and 20 mins. later I realize hey he's supposed to be cleaning his room but he got me off subject and we are looking up a fact on the Internet.
I love that Marley sings and hums all the time. She sings with me and to me and it's soooooo cute! One of our favorite books is Snuggle Puppy by Sandra Boynton and there are parts that I sing to her and she now sings with me when I read it to her.
4. What is your favorite thing to do to relax?
If I'm at home, I like to just hang with James and watch a good movie or TV show. I also fold my origami flowers which helps me to focus and quite my brain (which is hard sometimes).
If I have been overwhelmed with kids and everyday stress getting out with my girlfriends is great.
5. What is your favorite restaurant? And what is your favorite thing on the menu?
Are you kidding one favorite restaurant? One of my favorite nicer restaurants is PF Changs. I love their chicken lettuce wraps and shrimp fried rice. My two favorite casual local places are Flaming Amy's Burrito Barn and Chris' Cosmic Kitchen. I love, love. LOVE Flaming Amy's fresh salsa!! I crave it. And Chris' has the best omelets! I personally love their Lump Crab Omelet. OK now I'm hungry....
6. What is your favorite piece of jewelry (besides your wedding ring)?
Besides my wedding and engagement rings I wear two other pieces jewelry all the time. One is a ring my mom gave me for my 18th birthday (I think) and it's a silver ring with gold accents. It's very different looking but so me! The other piece is a silver necklace I got a few years ago. It's got two small silver circles that have Noa stamped on one and Marley stamped on the other and small pearl that hangs next to them.
7. What is your favorite night of the week M-TH? And why?
Either Monday or Wednesday right now. James usually works 2 nights a week most semesters and this semester it happens to be Tuesday and Thursday. So I like Monday and Wednesday because he is home and we hang out for one and then usually I go to the movies with my friend Ivy for the other night.
8. What is your favorite dessert?
I have a sweet tooth so I am not that picky I love all things sweet (except white chocolate). But if I had my choice it would be cherry cobbler or my friend Jennifer's coconut cupcakes.
9. What is your favorite item in your make-up bag?
Mary Kay waterproof mascara in black/brown. Good for everyday wear!!
10. What is your favorite smell?
Vanilla, babies, garden roses.
