I was recently tagged in a friends blog to answer some fun questions. Here are my answers.

1. What is your signature color?

I must say it is probably black, for clothing anyway. I am trying to branch out a bit more, but it looks good with everything, it usually looks more put together than other colors and it looks with the blonde hair.

For my house I have been into that brighter green that is popular right now. So the house we just moved into has a nice brighter feel to it. Maybe, hopefully one day soon I will get time to take some photos of parts of the house.

2. Your most embarrassing moment?

Okay one time in junior high I sat on a chair in my English class that had chocolate on it (unbeknown to me). I was wear white jeans (it was the early 90's, 'nough said) and when I got up from my seat to go talk to the teacher I had chocolate all over my bum and the class got a great kick out of it. I did not so much. Fun times (it took me awhile to remember this. I must have suppressed it pretty deep. haha).

3. Would you ever get anything pierced other than your ears? If yes, what?

I think I would get a teeny tiny piercing on my nose. But I don't even wear earrings anymore so I am not thinking that is likely.

4. Are you a social butterfly or a homebody?

I am a homebody, an introvert. Over the years I have learned to be more outgoing and when I am with people that I am very comfortable with and know well I can appear outgoing. But I prefer to not go to big group things, and I don't meet people well. It isn't that I don't want to be social or meet new people, it is that I am always so worried that I am not making a good impression that I might be annoying them. It is very anxiety producing for me. It is much easier for me to open up on the blog or on FB becuase it is not face to face. I know that seems a bit wierd but it is true.

Example: When I was a toddler I would only speak at home to my parents. Extended family thought I was mute for a long time. My parents put me in preschool to help me socialize more.

5. Are you done having babies or do you want more?

I would love to have more. I am not sure how many more though, we like to to take it one at a time. ;)

6. Are you loyal to your hairstylist or are do you tryout every salon in town?

I am very loyal to my hairstylist, "Little Patty." I love her and rumor has it she might be moving to a new salon and I will follow her there. I go to her, Chris and Ethan do, my sister Sam and even mom. Not to mention a handful of friends who all recommended her to me.

7. How many times have you moved in your life?

I have moved 9 times in my life. Of that 9, four of them were in college alone. I didn't think too much about moving as a kid (I only moved twice then) but as an adult I must say it is something I don't like.

8. If you could plan your dream vacation with just you and your love where would it be?

Probably Greece or Italy or some sort of European backpacking vacation.

Today Ethan and I had a chance to go to Legoland. I had never been. Ethan went one time when he was one with Chris, but I ended up with food poisoning so I missed out. Well today my good friend Stacey had a free pass and used it on me. That was nice of her. Thanks Stace.

The boys had such a wonderful time, they are such great friends.

Ethan giving N a hug. So cute.

The boys got to play on the cool Duplo playgrounds. There was even a train ride that they got to go on by themselves. Made me a little sad that he could ride a ride without me. But he LOVED it and had a fantastic time on it.

They a huge "splash pad playground complete with waterslides. N LOVED the water slides. Ethan on the other hand had a great time watching N, but never got any higher than the third step up. He is not a fan of water dropping on his face from above. :)

Stace and N riding the plane ride.
Look I was even there. :) A rare self portrait to prove my attendance.
It is such a great park for little kids. The boys had a great time and now both of them are fast asleep napping to their hearts content.
