I'll Be Waiting

Ten on Tuesday

1. Do you listen to the radio in your car?  If so, what type of station do you like?
All the time. I only listen to a cd when there are no songs on the radio that I like, and even then I listen to just one song off a cd and then turn the radio back on to see if there are any goodies on that time. I listen to ALL music.

2. What is the best concert you have ever attended?
Good Charlotte.

Destiny's Child. Back when there were 4 of them.

Amy of Evanescence, Mariah Carey or Carrie Underwood.

5. You’re auditioning for American Idol.  What song do you sing?
Hmmmm. Something fun. Maybe Bubbly.

6. If your previous weekend had its own soundtrack, what would be a few of the songs?
Ha. My previous weekend sucked. The ex told me he and his fiance are expecting so maybe some depressing songs or ones that make me reminisce.

7. Most annoying television show theme song ever:
Prob just about any kid shows haha.

8. Are you and your significant other music-compatible?
I am single but my ex significant other and I used to be. It was our #1 thing in common.

9. A song that brings me back to middle school:
Oh wow sooooo many but the first one I thought of was Mariah's "We belong together"

Spending the whole day with my own daughter and still getting paid for it

A stay at home mom

A game show host. I love game shows!

Pretty much everything except English. I don't use any higher math, anything to do with science, nothing to do with history. Blah, I am very glad to no longer be in high school!

9. Who was your favorite boss?  Why?
Well I have only had three bosses. My current boss and my other two from my old fulltime job and my parttime job. I would say my boss from my parttime job. I worked at Claires and she was young and friendly and always caring and understanding.

*Thought provoking questions found here.

What gets you excited about life?

My daughter. Honestly, she is all I live for. I love to try to see the world through her eyes and enjoy being her mom. I am excited about our future together and hope to see and do many things throughout the next 16 years until she decides she is ready to leave her mom :) Hopefully, she and I will be good friends when she is an adult. I want her to always be able to count on me for anything. Whenever I am down, my daughter knows how to bring me back up, and each day I am learning to live a little more and give more because of her.

Ten on Tuesday

1. When you are on a plane and the kid behind you is kicking your seat, what do you do?
I imagine I would turn around and ask the parents to tell the kid to stop but I will NEVER get on a plane so this question does not apply to me!

2. What food that you KNOW is bad for you and you shouldn't have, but you love/eat it anyway?
Hmmm. Cheese? Red meat? White bread? DOUGHNUTS? ICECREAM? I love all bad foods...

3. What is your favorite book of all time?
I haven't read it yet. I am hard to please :-)

4. If I came to visit in your town, where would we eat?
Anywhere fancy...a place where I wouldn't dare take my daughter. She is my only dinner partner these days.

5. You have 500 dollars and 40 minutes to spend it at any store you want. Where do you go?
TARGET. I love Target. And I am pretty sure I could spend that much there very quickly.

6. What blog do you read everyday/the most often?
This one, this one, and this one. Obviously I love reading about the lives of moms with a buttload of kids. Maybe one day that will be me as well.

7. What's the longest you've ever been stuck at an airport?
I wasn't "stuck" but I did wait on my brother once for SIX hours. He had two flights that were both delayed and I was his pick up person. Wouldn't have been so bad had I not been there by myself with a 7 month old who just wanted to crawl around soooo bad.

8. What's your daily makeup/face/cleansing routine?
I shower, then I wash my face with Clinique. Then I use tons of makeup from Sephora and make myself look like Barbie. Dang. Sephora should have been my answer for question 5. I could easily spend $500 on those products!

9. Where is your farthest away friend?
My best friend and ex is 5 hours away from me. Everyone else is "around the corner".

10. Where is your favorite place to go hiking (or to enjoy nature)?
I love vacationing anywhere where there are mountains and waterfalls. So beautiful and peaceful!

Always Wear Clean Underwear

Thought provoking questions found here

What's the most sensible thing you've ever heard someone say?

"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." - Maya Angelou

I have always loved this quote and it reminds me of when my mom always told me to treat others as I would like to be treated. I always make sure that I compliment others, that I fully listen to them, and I take great care to not offend anyone. I never pass judgement, and dislike when others do so to me without actually knowing me.

Now, the most unsensible thing I have ever heard someone say? Wear clean underwear in case you get in an accident. WHY would someone not wear clean underwear in the first place?!? Lol.
