We answer 5 little questions - some serious, some silly - to give our blogging brains a break and to get to know each other better. Copy and paste to your own blog and ENJOY!!
The first thing that popped into my head is tattoos. I’d probably cover myself in them if I didn’t work in a professional setting and if my extended family didn’t hate them so much….as it is I have 8. I’d absolutely get a tiny diamond stud in my nose if I had the balls. Moving is another thing I’d do if I thought I could do it. I’ve never lived anywhere but here but sometimes I want to.
2. What’s your favorite pizza topping and brand?
I’m pretty boring – sausage only is my fave. My favorite brand is from a little Mom & Pop place that Rambo took me to almost every weekend back in high school and it still stands today. It’s still my favorite and now my kids love it too.
3. If you could go back in time but only as far as five years – would you go or not go and why?
I always hope that I never have any regrets in life but the fact is that I do – so yes – I’d go back. I used to think if I could go back and undo the flood that took my childhood home and devastated my parents – that I would but now – I’m not so sure. I am sure I’d change the timing of it. It happened when I was only a few days out from getting my tummy tuck and the recovery was brutal due to the flood.
Personally – I’ve suffered a lot of heart ache in the last 5 years and one thing I’d do differently in that aspect is guard my heart better. I love too deeply and too easily and too fast and in the end, I always lose.
4. Who is your favorite Disney princess and why?
For sure – it’s Belle from Beauty and the Beast. Um – first - the yellow ball gown is to die for. The whole falling in love with someone though they appear to be a beast on the outside strikes a chord for me. I suppose in some ways – Rambo was a beast….to most of the adults who knew him. He was a risk-taker and a trouble-maker and he spent more time in the principal’s office than in a classroom when I dated him. I was the good little Catholic girl with the 4.0 and not a single adult or teacher could understand why I loved him. But I did anyway.
And as he grew up – everyone started to see what I saw from the beginning. He was a tough farm kid, rough around the edges and he hated rules. To me – I saw a hard-working man who loved every part of me when I thought I was unloveable.
He had more honor, loyalty, compassion and morality in his left arm than most people have in their lifetime. Nearly every adult I knew tried to talk me out of being with Rambo – and I refused to listen. Now they too, know why. He was only a beast on the outside. The truth was that he didn’t need rescuing….I did.
5. Repeat Question – summarize your week!
This week was fun but stressful. The election sucked all the energy out of me but it turned out well. Recovering from Easter sucked donkey balls but I think everyone has successfully detoxed from chocolate eggs now. My diet and exercise have continued to be spot on and that feels GREAT! No plans for the weekend and I couldn’t be any happier about that!
