Oooh, that's a toughie...I love the idea of a makeover, but I am not a selfish enough mama to say I would rather have that than a beautiful new home for my children to grow up in. So of course, I would say Extreme Home Makeover. But wait...Don't you have to OWN a home first? Maybe Ty Pennington and his design team would like to buy me a plot of land and THEN build my family's dream home? Is ABC that generous? Hmmm...Oh, personal note: The entire time I was pregnant, I could not watch that show at all. The family stories generally proved to be too much for a hormonal sap-ball like me to handle, and I would cry the whole episode...My husband and 10 year old would then proceed to make fun of me the whole time. (MEANIES!)
2. Do you have any tattoos?
Why yes, yes I do. But wait! Before you assume I have a criminal record and got jail-house tattoos or run with some unsavory group of neo-nazi-gothic-vampire-wanna-be's, I ONLY have 2, they both have meaning, and they are both small enough to easily cover and aren't anywhere freaky like on my neck or my boob or my lower back. I don't want to look in the mirror in 20 years and look like a California Raisin because my tatts are all wrinkled. Now don't get me wrong, I LOVE body art...But I am happy with the 2 tatts I have, and I will just admire the extensive ink on others rather than jump on that bandwagon myself. I am not that brave,haha...Same goes for piercings. I have my ears and the cartilage in my left ear done, and I am happy stopping there. I don't need any more holes in my body, and let's face it...I am a mom, and almost 30 (EEEK!) and I should reflect that to some degree. I DO have to go to parent-teacher conferences,lol
3. Do you tell your kids about things you did growing up?
Oh good LORD no! I wasn't the best teenager, by any stretch...I had some issues and was very, very rebellious and engaged in certain behaviors that I would NEVER tolerate from my kids as a parent. My husband was the same way. But we are VERY different people now, and we would never want to somehow condone bad behavior by being so open that I admit that I have, in fact, engaged in most of it when I was younger. I am actually a rather strict parent...My son is NOT allowed to watch whatever he wants on TV or in movies, and I do not allow him to play all the violent video games like Call Of Duty or Halo or Grand Theft Auto...My 10 year old does not get onto the internet without me sitting right there with him, and he isn't allowed to eat a lot of junk or have soda regularly. This is a FAR cry from who I was before I became a mom.I have done a lot of things that I am not at all proud of, but that is not who I am as an adult. Maybe I will confide in my children and tell them what I did as a kid when they are MUCH older and on their own, but for now, I am their mom. Not their friend. And they do not need to know these things.
4. If the traffic signal turns yellow, do you stop or speed up?
Okay....It drives the hubby crazy, speed demon and daredevil that he is, but I slow down and I stop. That's just how I roll....Literally. Okay, that was nerdy,lol
5. What's your preference: chocolate or chips?
I actually don't like junk food much at all. I don't do sweets or desserts for the most part, and I don't do chips, either. Unless you mean tortilla chips...Oh wait...I DO make my uber-delish taco salad with Doritos....Does that count? But I buy Doritos for cooking, not for snacking. Now the hubby is an entirely different story...He LOVES junk food and is the biggest chocoholic I have ever meant. One year for Valentine's Day, I got him a 5lb Hershey's bar. It was gone in just a few hours. Ewwww!!!!
