A Wee Bit of Me Wednesday...

{one} do you believe in ghosts?
Yes. But I've never seen, felt or noticed anything close to a presence before.

{two} are you more of a talker or more of a listener?
Talker. Definitely. I am working on being a better listener.

{three} would you rather get up early or sleep late?
Get up early. If I have slept in I feel like I have wasted a good chunk of the day. I am a morning person!

{four} if you could instantly become an expert at one type of dance, what type would you choose?
That's a tough one! I LOVE to watch dance even though I am not good at it at all. I think B-boys are rad so maybe I'd choose that. Swing would be cool too.

{five} what's your favorite drink?
Alcoholic: Pomegranate Martinis or red wine; Non-alcoholic: Fresh squeezed lemonade

{six} if your house caught fire and you could only grab three things, what would they be?
Wow. And I am a sentimental person (and a pack rat) but I don't think there is any specific things that aren't able to be replaced. Probably Pound Cake & Bearister (AJ's dog & my bear), my computer with all my pictures and work on it and my purse with all the IDs and credit cards and phone to save me some time to not have to get new ones.

{seven} if you could only visit one restaurant for the next five years, which would it be?
Cafe Pasquel in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I think it would have to be somewhere that has an inspired chef that likes to change the menu and is ubercreative. And someone who can cook a variety of things. But it would be pretty hard to get to when I want to go out since I am in WI!!

{eight} who inspires you the most?

{nine} if you had your own talk show, who would your first three guests be?
Eye candy- Taylor Kitsch, Ryan Reynolds, Gavin Rossdale. Maybe that's what I would call it- Eye Candy!!

{ten} sneakers or sandals?
I don't get to wear sandals but 4 months a year so I will say sandals now that my old sneaks are gone... sniff, sniff. Ooooooweeee! Stinky! ;)

How I know I live with a preschooler Tuesday...

I can't believe I haven't posted this yet!! AJ turned 4 on March 11th!! Here is the recap of his birthday goodies... He had a pool party at the YMCA and we invited his class plus a few other friends. The Y was pretty easy peasy. So I chose a whale theme since it was a swimming party. It is hard to find whale themed party items so I just went with a water/blue theme.

The invitation...

The cupcakes with toppers and whale basket for chips. I found the whale basket at Target in the bathroom section. It is a shower caddy corral thing. But it was perfect for the party! And now it is being used as a toy container in the tub.

Close up of the cupcake toppers...

The goody bag... Included in the sand pail was a boat, Goldfish crackers, fish stickers, M&M's, play-doh, a mini frisbee, bubbles, Nemo fruit snacks, fruit strip and a CD that I mixed. I do a CD for each of his birthdays. That should be a post! I'll post the songs in his 2nd, 3rd and 4th birthday mixes. There were 3 or 4 whale songs on it!

And the thank you card- which was re-purposed! Those are the cupcake toppers that were left- I just pulled out the stick!

I love doing the 'whole party'. It really is so much fun for me. I dig themes.

A Wee Bit of Me Wednesday...

{one} what’s the worst date you’ve ever been on?
I 'dated' this guy in college who was really hot, a great athlete and would sing to me but he had absolutely nothing upstairs. I have some good funny stories about him but there was zero conversation. I guess that's the worst date... Well, except of course, for the guy that bit my lip and drew blood during a kiss. Thank goodness for my buddy, Brett, who scared that guy off for good.

{two} if you could be any other person for one day, who would it be?
AJ- so I'd know what he really is thinking! Or a baby to know what they are comprehending...

{three} what is your favorite kind of cheese?
Sharp cheddar cheese. Love it!

{four} do you remember your 1st grade teacher?
Miss Carlson was one of my favorite teachers ever. She was so sweet.

{five} who is the first person you call when you have a bad day?
Steve. He hears a lot of crap sometimes.

{six} were you ever in a school talent show?
I sang 'Almost Paradise' from Footloose in seventh grade. It was a duet that I sang with Adam Thompson. I was never a good singer and have no idea how I got the part that every girl wanted. Adam actually is in a band now and tours around! I guess I didn't hold him back.

{seven} who is your favorite fictional character?
Elizabeth Bennett. Hands down.

{eight} can you open your eyes underwater?
Yes. But I also wear contacts and I don't like getting water on them so I'll wear goggles.

{nine} do you look at the keyboard when you type?
Yes. Always. I know I am not supposed to. I don't put my fingers on the 8 keys that you are supposed to either.

{ten} when was the last time you took a nap?
While in San Fran or Napa two weeks ago. You get tired when you drink wine all day! ;)
