Sometimes I Question Myself...

Goodness, I complained about not getting any questions and you all delivered! I had a blast answering these :) Enjoy! There's a special treat at the end of this post!

Carrie @ Martin Manor Happenings: How would you spend a million dollars if you won it?
First make a "rainy day" fund in the event of an emergency, then pay off all our family's debt. Then fully fund both munchkins college funds, add a chunk to retirement. Then, I would travel (with my entire family; grandma, uncle, the works!) to the Atlantis resort on Paradise Island and drink a million fruity drinks with umbrellas!!

Melissa @ Spoiled Mommy:
Whats your daily schedule?
It's summer know so there's less going on. I wake up, put on my gym clothes and head out with the munchkins. 2 hours of sweating my butt off then it's time to come home, have a snack and play with the kids. Then lunch time and maybe a trip up to the community pool or something. Then it's nap time! yes, even for my 6 year old. I am going to get a nap out of these kids as long as they go along with it :) While they sleep I clean the house for a few hours. Daddy comes home, we have dinner, watch some TV as a family and then have story time and off to bed!

Weakness, what's yours?
Geez, I don't know! On a positive I could say my hubby is my weakness, this man can get me to do anything, ha ha! See how crazy I am about him? On a negative my weakness would have to be the new found bugs I have to deal with since our move... Scorpions! They seriously freak me out!! Oh and kryptonite, of course.

Mimi @ He & Me + 3
: What is your favorite holiday?
Christmas! It's such a great time of year, people stop what they're doing and really think about the baby boy born in a manger and seem to be nicer. I love doing the nativity calendar with my munchkins and sharing what happened on that magical night with them. I also love decorating the house, think Chevy Chase Christmas Vacation!


What camera do you shoot with?
Casio Exilim 7.2 mega pixels, from Target. Purchased while on vacation because I seem to always leave my camera at home, hey it's better than forgetting underwear.

Ever had an surgeries?
Um, yeah! Double hernia, Tonsillectomy, and a TON of mouth surgery after my jet ski accident (bad memories, let's not go there...) and I am sure I am leaving something out, oh well.

Lola @ Lola's Diner: If you could be any animal, what would you be?
Those who have been reading here for awhile might remember my plea to save the Gray Wolf HERE (howling to be heard) and HERE(good-bye dear wolf). I have always loved Wolves, so loyal and yet quite mysterious. They have families they look after and seem to never get the respect I think they deserve. For sure if I could be an animal it would be a Wolf.

Patty @ Photography: A Reflection and Refraction: What is your middle name?
Arlene, I was named after my grandmother :)

My Mom, Tina: I love what E @ Scottsville had to say!
Can I be your "Fairy Blogmother"?
For sure Mom, you can always be my "fairy blogmother" or anything else you want to be for that matter :)

Leslie @ JAM's Own Reality:
How did you meet your husband? Was it love at first sight?
I showed him my boobs one night at a bar. What? Isn't that how everyone meets the love of their life? And yes, we gazed into each others glossed over, blurry eyes and knew we were meant to be!

Do you think you would like to have more kids?
Some days I want another munchkins SO BADLY! Then I have days were the kids are driving me nuts, the puppy is peeing all over the house, the laundry is piled to the ceiling, and my hubby and I aren't getting along and I say "No way Jose!"

Stacey @ Mom Taxi: If you could travel back in time Where and When would you go?
I would travel to England in the early nineteenth century (specifically between 1810-1817.) To the time of Jane Austen, formal gatherings, courtship, Travels to Bath and Southampton, and amazing literature. Oh man, now I really wish I could do time travel!!

If you could be president for ONE day what would you do? What laws would you pass?
I would make full figured women be the standard first of all. And have all super skinny boney models thrown in jail. Shush, I can do that! I'm the president remember? Then I would pass a law that would make it incredibly hard to remove an animal from the endangered species list. And lastly I would take some of the governments power away. Let the states handle more of their problems and have "big brother" leave their nose out of it.

Alicia @ Yaya Stuff: If you could have a superpower what would it be, and what would your superhero name be? But most importantly, what would your superhero costume look like?
Oh this is great, the geek in me will get to shine :) I would for sure choose Power Mimicry as my superpower (the ability to copy or absorb another's powers or skills) Similar to
Rogue from "xmen." My name would be... Hum, maybe chatter-girl! and my costume would look like this: (notice she has a cell phone in her hand? perfect!)


What's the best day of your life so far?
I could say my wedding day, but you know what? I was a nervous wreck! I could also say the day both my munchkins were born... The truth, yes it was amazing, but I was in pain people!!! So I am going to say my families vacation to Hilton Head Island last year. It was wonderful, everything went perfect. I will treasure that week for years and years to come.

You want more questions? OK, Is your favorite color orange?
Actually Orange is one of my favorite colors! We are HUGE Clemson Tiger fans around our house. Purple and Orange Baby! Often at least one member in the family is decked-out in orange to show our love of our old South Carolina stomping grounds.

Aimee @ Journey2Learn: If you had to choose the single most valuable thing you ever learned, what would it be?
Maybe that we need to live our life as if our kids are always watching. Be the example you want them to be. This is a tough question!

Anissa @ Our Chaotic Life: What is your favorite time of year and why?
I can tell ya I am not too fond of crazy hot desert summers! I love the other 3 seasons though! Winter(Christmas, my birthday, SNOW, skiing, snuggling to keep warm) Spring(new growth, sweet flower smells, cool breezes, outdoor activities) Fall(all the warm colors, leaf piles, getting ready for school to start)

If you could go any where in the world -- where would you go and why?
Well as mentioned above and in this post HERE I would love to stay at The Atlantis on Paradise Island! But since we are in the land of imaginary, let's get a little more exotic shall we. I would LOVE to visit Greece, like the places filmed in Mama Mia!

And as a special surprise I put all the names into a hat that asked a question and let my mini-munchkin pull out 1 name to win my coveted "I'm Cool" award and be this months featured blogger on my blog! The person selected was...

Stacey @ Mom Taxi! So Chick, take this awesome award and put it on your blog, I will be doing a feature on you this coming week!



au revoir, adieu, ciao, till next time...

nikkicrumpet said...

Penny Lane said...

You have ... s..s..scorpions? *looks around the perimeter, nervously* Really? EEP! How do you get rid of them?

Love your ideas regarding what you'd do if you were president for a day. Good choices! *applauds*

I have a lovely blog award for you on my site. come on over to get it.

JAN'S PLACE said...

Ah, your mom blogs..how cool! Well, come to think of it, I am a mom of a blogger..so I guess your Mom and I are in the same camp..she is very cool!

Commenting back to you, re: the comment you left on my blog. The McD's lattes are really good. Don't be afraid of addiction, because fortunately it's only 220 calories for the LARGE full-fat milk version, and half that for the non-fat milk version. Really good, considering that.

As for the Firm, I love the Firm. I have about 75 Firm tapes and have been using them since 1997 or so. I love them! Very effective. They promise visible results in 10 workouts, and they don't lie. They're tough though... tough, but worth it.
