Include the logo of the award in a post or on your blog.
When was the last time you did something kind and what was it?
I think it’s important to show kindness everyday…even if it’s as simple as holding a door for someone.
Your most beautiful childhood memory?
Swimming. I loved water and still do.
Pizza or pasta?
Man this is a tough one! I’d have to say pizza wins. Who doesn’t love some bread piled with sauce, cheese, meat, and veggies? Well except maybe a vegetarian.
Why do mother’s need coffee and wine?
Coffee is to keep us mommies awake, which in turn, keeps the kids alive and wine is to help the coffee wear off in order to sleep! Wine is also a necessity for sanity for me.
Do you have a pet and if yes, what kind of pet?
We have a German Shepard named Roxy. She is the best dog that I have ever owned…and I have always had a dog all my life.
What invention do you think the world would need and what stops you from inventing it?
A drug to make everyone happy. I think there are so many of us who suffer from turmoil and sadness. I’m not a scientist and I don’t see me becoming one in the future.
What’s the secret of life?
Humor! I think everyone needs a good laugh everyday!
What question would you ask the president of the United States if you would have a one-on-one with him?
fuck heck are you doing? Seriously. I am not much of a political person though, therefore I won’t even discuss politics or religion with most people.
What would be your solution for world peace?
To do away with greed. I think greed causes a lot of
people to become abnormally psycho problems.
What are you cooking for dinner?
Do leftovers count?
Did you enjoy school?
Nope. I hated school. I feel that high school teaches you nothing to prepare you for the “real” world.
What is the saying you despise the most?
Is it snack time? Drives me CRAZY!
What is your most treasured possession?
Memories. And a ring that my late grandma owned. There’s a long story to it.
How do you spend a typical Saturday night?
Preferably sleeping 😆
Name 3 things you are really good at and 3 things you are really bad at. Good:
BitchingSpeaking my mind
- Being a
- Communicating my feelings…unless of course it’s bitching.
- Baking. Love to cook but could burn boxed brownies.
Do you care what others think of you?
Only those who are really close to me. The ones who truly matter.
What is your favorite movie and why?
I would have to go with my childhood favorite of “Flashdance”. I used to watch it everyday and it inspired me to never give up on dreams.
What is the worst movie you have ever seen?
This one’s so easy….”Cyrus”!!! Worst movie ever!!!
What was the last thing you ate?
Sunflower seeds. Have you tried the Spitz Spicy Sweet Chili yet? Well get your ass to the store and get some!
Do you believe in aliens? Why or why not?
I do believe that there is no possible way that we could be the only life form in the entire universe. There is just so much “unknown” out there.
1. If you were given the chance to go walk on the moon would you do it?
I don’t think I could leave my family and veer off into space. Too many things can and have happened on that adventure. Before I had kids the answer would have been HELL YES!
2. Camping by a beautiful waterfall, in a pretty wood with gorgeous weather, or 5* luxury accommodation with terrible weather?
Camping! I could really care less about luxury. Sure it’s nice but highly overpriced and overrated. Give me the great outdoors and some beautiful scenery and a beer and I am golden.
3. Which is your favourite social networking site and why?
Have to go with Facebook. I know it’s a cliche but I have stuck to a rule of I only have people on my personal Facebook that I actually know or have had an actual conversation with.
4. Beer or wine?
I have to make a choice? I used to be a huge beer drinker but lately I am more of a wine connoisseur. I love trying different brands of reds. You can read about some of my wine reviews here.
5. Which item(s) can you never leave the house without?
- My clothes
- My phone
- My glasses
- My purse
- My mind…although I leave that sucker everywhere.
6. If you had to take part in a reality TV show, which would it be and why?
“The Amazing Race” I think my husband and I would rock that show. We travel well together and don’t crack under pressure. We do however have a tendency to become…shall we say….smart asses. We both think we are right which can cause slight
yelling in public arguments. But hey that’s great for television right?
7. If every job had the same salary, which job would you choose?
This is a great question Debbie. I love being a mom. But if I wasn’t a mom I would have to go with flower deliverer. People are always smiling when they get a delivery of flowers.
8. Would you rather: write a terrible blog post and have it go viral or write an amazing blog post and only have 10 people read it?
Oh let’s be honest here…of course I would want any post to go viral.
9. If you could be known for one thing, what would it be?
The difference I made in the lives of my children. A good mother, wife, friend. A good person in general. I have done a lot of wrong in my past and now I just want to make my life right by doing right by the people I love.
10. If you could change you’re first name would you? If yes, what would you choose to be called?
Nope. I love my name and thank my mommy for giving me a “not so ordinary” name.
