Friend Making Monday -- 10 Questions

If you’ve taken part in Friend Making Monday then you know the rules. You answer the questions on your own blog and then link back to Kenlie’s blog, All the Weigh.

I love doing this because it’s so fun to see different people’s answers to the same questions and it definitely makes you think! Hopefully you’ll play along J

1. Describe the kind of home you would live in if money were no object. After going to the Parade of Homes a couple of times I definitely have some ideas on features that I would like. More than anything I want lots of storage so I can have everything have its place. I would love a HUGE master walk in closet and if possible even to have a washer and dryer in there. I would also like a laundry room with cabinets and a counter with a sink where you can wash out the things you need to before they go in the washer. My main want for a kitchen is to have a double oven. I hate when I have to cook two things and they require different temperatures so I’m trying to balance both and have them turn out perfectly. Only in my dreams, I guess.

2. Are you more conservative in your actions or more rebellious? I am definitely more conservative in my actions. I’m a planner and I want to know what I’m doing and when.

3. Would you go to Mars even if it meant you could never return to Earth?  No. I really don’t have any interest in going to Mars. Even if it were a free trip, I just really don’t want/need to go there.

4. Name one song that makes you want to dance every time you hear it. Usually anything by Pitbull and/or J. Lo. Those are the type of songs I love to put on my IPod because they keep me moving and energized.

5. Share one thing that you wish you could go back and do differently in your life.  I wish I was more physically active when I was younger so I didn’t have to work so hard now to be where I want to be physically.

6. Share at least one accomplishment that people wouldn’t expect you to be proud of. I am proud of the fact that I do my best work at the last minute. I think this is why I really liked Journalism – you always had a deadline you were working on.

7. Describe one delicious thing that you’ve eaten lately.  Yesterday morning I made a cinnamon coffee-cake dish for breakfast I saw on Six Sister Stuff. It is definitely NOT Weight Watchers friendly and was more work than just opening up a box, but it was pretty good. I brought some to work with me for breakfast today and there is only one small piece left at home. I guess everyone liked it! If you want the receipe it is here.

8. If you had a theme song that would play every time you entered a room, which song would you choose?  “Girl on Fire” by Alicia Keys. I just feel so empowered and confident right now that I can do absolutely anything I put my mind to.

9. Has technology enhanced your life, or has it over complicated your life?  I think it has definitely enhanced my life, but I have to remember not to let it be a time sucker and take away from other things I should be doing like spending time with my children and cleaning the house.

10. If you could get paid to do any job, which job would you choose?  I would do something with scrapbooking.

Now it’s your turn to answer this week’s questions!  Don’t forget to link back to Kenlie’s site


  1. That walk-in closet with washer/dryer- OMG YES!

  2. I would LOVE to have a double oven and tons of counter space and a huuuge island in the kitchen. Hey, we can dream can't we!? lol I completely agree about the technology. It enhances our lives so much, but we miss out on a lot of little things when everyone is glued to a screen.

  3. I had a friend who was engaged to a professional scrapbooker. Those people do exist.

  4. Fun questions and answers this week!! Fabulous idea for a washer/dryer in the master closet!

  5. That's so cool that you cook often enough to want a double oven! I wouldn't know what to do with two ovens--I hardly know what to do with one, hah. Anyway, I do see the appeal of a washer-dryer in my walk in closet. I'm adding that to my wish list, totally!

    Stopping by for a belated FMM. I answered Kenlie's questions, too:
