I was tagged for this post by two lovely bloggers Laura at Laura’s Lovely Blog and Claire at Tin Box Traveller. I want to thank both ladies for thinking of me for this. I love to read and get to know more about those who I come across in the blogoshere!
You’ve won a new life to somewhere amazing, no costs spared – where would it be and who would you take with you?
~My husband and children of course and my best friend and her family. As for where, I recently saw a show filmed in Tahiti and it looks absolutely amazing there. Who doesn’t love the beach?~
If you could cure one disease in the world what would it be?
~Cancer. It robs too many young people of their lives. And no child should EVER have to endure something as evil as being robbed of their life.~
Shoes or handbags?
~I am going to have to go with handbags here. Even though I don’t own a bag over $50, I still purchase them more often then shoes.~
Which famous person would you be tempted to have an affair with?
~Matthew McConaughey. Bet you all thought I was going to say Channing Tatum huh? Don’t get me wrong…Channing is charming but Matthew is like an aged fine wine ;)~
What is your all-time favourite film?
~Flashdance. Something about that movie will always reminds me to never give up on my dreams.~
And your all-time favourite book?
~The Odd Thomas series by Dean Koontz. Although I haven’t picked up a book in FOREVER! Busy reading too many fabulous blogs these days.~
Would you ever have plastic surgery?
~YES! Not on my face though. Messing with the face is tricky and you can come out looking worse then when you went in. Just for the record though the only surgery I have ever had is 3 C-sections. In 3 years time. Therefore I have no rush to go under any knives right now.~
What is the best part about being a parent?
~Loving someone unconditionally. Knowing that no matter what…you will always love those tiny little humans that you produced…even when they grow up and start lives of their own. The first time I laid eyes on all three of my (gave birth to) children I can’t even begin to explain the amount of emotion that poured out of me. I knew my life would change forever…and I wanted it to. Being a step-mom is important to me too. But the love you have when you give birth to a child is just unexplainable….no one else will ever be their “mommy”. My step sons have a mom…therefore I will never be their “mommy”. I am “Trista” to them and always have been.~
What is the reason behind your blog name?
~I knew I wanted the word Domesticated in it since I have become just that since getting married and having kids. (If you knew me prior to this, you know exactly what I am talking about) The “momster” part came from the fact that I knew when I wrote about motherhood…I wasn’t going to sugar coat it. There are good days and bad days and I like to tell it all with a little bit of sarcasm attached to it.~
If you were a super hero what would your super power be?
~To clean the entire house from top to bottom and get all the laundry done instantly. Like snap my fingers and BOOM it’s done! Isn’t that every housewife’s super power dream? I hate wasting any of my time on that stuff but I am also know it needs to be done and I always feel so much better about it when it is.~
If you could wear one outfit for the rest of your days, what would you choose?
~A sun dress. They are super comfy but still able to be worn out in public without looking like a frumpy housewife.~
Those were some great questions Laura!
Where did you go on your last holiday?
~To the Redwoods in Northern California. It was beautiful and some valuable family time spent!~
What’s the first thing you do when you get up in the morning?
Tent or holiday villa, and why?
~I would have to go with the villa cause even when I camp, it’s in a camper and not a tent.~
Who do you admire the most?
~There are actually a lot of people who I admire. I have answered this question before with “myself” only because I know that when there is no one else to rely on I can rely on myself.~
What’s the most recent thing that made you laugh out loud?
~Wow that is a tough one because the things my kids say make me laugh out loud every day!~
Who do you text the most?
~My husband. We have always texts each other. Even when we first started dating.~
How many countries have you visited and which was your favourite?
~I would really have to think about how many I have been to. But the one I liked the most was Jamaica.~
What chore is always at the bottom of your to-do list?
~Windows. I would rather hire someone to do it.~
What’s your greatest fear?
~Something or someone harming my children of course! Second is leaving them motherless. I never want to leave my children motherless while they are kids.~
What’s at the top of your summer holiday packing list?
~Bathing suits! Summer is just not summer at all without a bathing suit.~
If you had one tip for new bloggers what would it be?
~Be social and share your fellow bloggers work. It only takes a minute but produces an everlasting smile. I am always about the #bloggerlove!~
