Lindsey has tagged me!

Rule #1:
the tagged person must write their answers on their blog and replace any question they dislike with a new question formulated by themselves.

Rule #2: tag 4 people to do this quiz; they cannot refuse (ok, so nothing bad will happen if you don’t participate but I would love to see your answers). The tag-ee must state who tagged them.

1. If you have pets, do you see them as merely animals or are they members of your family? We have 2 dogs (Banana and Bert), and they are truly members of your family. We wouldn't have kept Banana in the hospital for 2 weeks to the tune of $5k if we didn't love her dearly!! (Yes, it really did cost that much, and the tab is still running, and no we aren't done yet. She came home over the weekend, but bloodwork yesterday showed elevated levels again, so she had to spend the day at the vet yesterday getting more IV fluids. Ugh. We go back today to check her levels. Wake me up when this is over.)

2. If you could have a dream come true, what would it be? To have a LandRover (aside from the obvious that this little tyke growing up a storm is born healthy in October...)

3. What would you do with a billion dollars? Pay off our houses, set up a mutual fund/financial plan so we can have fun in retirement, put a bunch in a 529 (can you do that before the baby is born?), buy a LandRover (see #2), take our whole extended family (both sides) on vacation, furnish the house from PotteryBarn or EthanAllen, and set up a scholarship fund for local high school seniors

4. What helps to pull you out of a bad mood? Cooking, playing with my dogs, going for a walk, Mr. A's silly jokes, talking to my sisters or brother

5. What is your bedtime routine, with your kids? No kids that have a bedtime right now! But I hope to have a very relaxing routine for them when they get here :)

6. If you are currently in a relationship, how did you meet your significant other? We were in the same training class the first day I started at my office!

7. What kind of books do you read?
Normally new fiction that catches my eye and some Christian/inspirational types, too

8. How do you see yourself in 10 years? Living in the same general area, with hopefully 3 kiddos, our dog(s), and a great love for each other.

9. What’s your fear?
That I will lose this baby (we are being honest, right?). I know plenty of women have healthy pregnancies and they don't even say boo about the fact that things could go wrong, but after struggling with infertility, you know how many amazing things go into the growth of a baby, beginning from just 2 tiny cells!!! I have great faith that this little one will arrive healthy and happy in October, though, and I'm just trusting God and my body to know how to support him/her!!!

10. Would you give up all junk food for the rest of your life for the opportunity to see outer space? Actually, I don't eat that much junk food, and I don't really care if I see outer space....

11. What’s the first thing you do when you wake up? Go to the bathroom! Even before my alarm beeps, at this point!

12. If you could change one thing about your significant other, what would it be?
That he wouldn't drink so much sweet tea. I'm sure I should be concerned from a health standpoint (but I'm sure there are worse drinks..), but it is also annoying to have the sweet tea pitcher empty so fast! It is not hard to make, but...

13. If you could pick a new name for yourself, what would it be? I have never really wanted a new name! But maybe Emily? That was the name of my Cabbage Patch doll :)

14. If you had to choose between six months of sun or six months of rain, what would you choose?
Sun! Who chooses 6-months of rain? Although, if it rained for 6 months, we wouldn't have to worry about filling up our pool from evaporation, or watering our garden....????

15. If you could only eat one thing for the next 6 months, what would it be? Blueberries

16. What is the thing you enjoy about blogging the most? "Meeting" others who have similar interests, struggles, and concerns! Plus having it be an outlet for my own psyche :)

17. Do you prefer salty or sweet foods?

18. What items are in your purse right now? Wallet, lotion, a pen, a daily reflection booklet, chapstick... I dont have a very big purse!

19. If you had to choose between vacationing at the beach or in the mountains where would you go? Mountains....with a lake nearby ;-)

20. What do you watch on television that you know you shouldn’t?
I don't watch alot of normal TV (mostly just Food Network and The Office), but I watch crazy things on hulu like Toddlers and Tiara's and the Duggar clips. Those shows are so unbelievable, I just can't look away!

The four people I tag are:
The Fertility-Challenged Black Sheep
Making Me Mom
Mission: Motherhood

I love where you want to be in 10 years! :) But Toddlers Tiara's? Haha. That show gives me the collywobbles. Although TLC is the best, and I always get hooked on What Not To Wear. :)

Melissa said...

I totally get your TV watching. I do the same, I just can't turn away from watching The Duggars. It's like watching a train wreck!

I heart Land Rovers too {sigh}

oh, fun! Toddlers and Tiaras, really? I've never watched it.
