1. When you are on a plane and the kid behind you is kicking your seat, what do you do?
I have been on both sides of this situation. It sucks either way. If I am the one being kicked I won't do anything about it as long as the parents are trying to keep it under control or at least talk to the child. If they just ignore it I will turn around and ask the child nicely to stop (I've only had to do this once and it worked pretty well). I have also been the parent of the child kicking the chair in front of them. I try my hardest to keep them from doing it but it happens. Planes are boring and their feet are at just the right place to kick or push on the chair in front of them, so it happens.
2. What food that you KNOW is bad for you and you shouldn’t have, but you love/eat it anyway?
Soda. I usually drink diet but I have been seeing article after article about how bad it is for you so I have tried to cut way back. Oh and candy ...
3. What is your favorite book of all time?
I don't have just one. But I will tell you I have just finished Something Borrowed and Something Blue by Emily Griffin and liked both but liked Something Blue better. Again not my favorite of all time because I just can't choose one.
4. If I came to visit you in your town, where would we eat?
For a nice dinner I would take you to one of two places Elijah's or The George in downtown Wilmington. They are both on the river walk so there is outside dining where you can eat outside and get really nice views of the Cape Fear River and downtown.
5. You have 500 dollars and 40 minutes to spend it at any store you want. Where do you go?
Target. I could get something for everyone in my house and some fun things too. Let me tell you it would not take me 40 minutes to spend 500 dollars in Target more like 15.
6. What blog do you read every day/the most often?
I don't read any blog everyday. But Roots & Rings is one I get emailed to me and that seems the only way I can read a blog every time it's published.
7. What’s the longest you’ve ever been stuck at an airport?
I think it was 6 hours. James and I were going to Alaska to go on a cruise with my family and we used the cruise line to book our flights and they did a crap job. We ended up spending like 6 hours in the Dallas airport waiting for our connecting flight (there were earlier flights but for some stupid or most likely cheaper reason they gave us a much later flight).
I have also been delayed many many times one of worst was a trip when Noa and I were flying back to NC from California and we were on the plane at LAX and they delayed us on the runway for close to 3 hours. Noa was 2 1/2 and we couldn't get out of our seats. It was torture. I finally gave the boy some benadryl so he would just sleep. But then of course we still the the very long 3 1/2 hour flight after that.
8. What’s your daily makeup/face/cleansing routine?
On non working days I wash my face in the shower with Cetaphil cleanser and then use the Cetaphil moisturizer with SPF. At night since I didn't put on make up I just a use a cucumber facial cleansing cloth before bed. On working days I shower and use the Cetaphil cleanser again but then use Mary Kay tinted moisturizer, blush, eye shadow and mascara. At night I use Mary Kay eye make up remover and Time Wise cleanser/makeup remover and moisturize with whatever free sample of night cream I have around.
9. Where is your farthest away friend?
A friend that I still talk to and see on occasion would be my friend Meg who used to live here on my street but then moved back to New Hampshire.
10. Where is your favorite place to go hiking (or to enjoy nature)?
I live at the beach so there isn't really any hiking here. There are nature trails to walk but that's about it. There is a local park called Hallyburton Park that has some really nice walking trails that go into the woods. It's one of my favorite parks to walk.
