Before we delve into my questions and answers, I owe a huge thank you to my girl Louida, who blogs over at Product Review Mom for selecting me to participate in this game of tag.
Okay, here we go...
1. Are you named after someone?
Yes, I share my middle name, Jane, with my mother's twin, whose middle name is also Jane. (Jane is my daughter Kennedy's middle name, too.)
2. When was the last time you cried?
I can't recall. But I did feel profound sadness a few nights ago when The Hubs and I were watching HBO's The Wire, and on this particular episode, there were kids fending for themselves as their parents ran amok, completely strung out on drugs. No child should ever have to live like that.
3. Do you have kiddos?
Sure do. A son, Scotty, Jr. (2.5 years old) and a daughter, Kennedy (6 months old):
4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?
For the most part, yes. But I wholeheartedly admit to being a real pain in the ass when I'm hungry or frustrated. I'm working on that.
5. Do you have a guilty pleasure?
Bravo TV, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, and champagne after the kids are tucked at night. (Although, I don't really feel all that guilty about the champagne; and it’s not every night, either.)
6. Do you like your handwriting?
I abhor my handwriting – and it has only gotten even worse due to my constant typing and texting.
7. What’s your favorite cereal?
Nature's Path granola
8. What’s the first thing you notice about people?
First, their eye contact. The energy they give off is a close second.
9. What is your eye color?
10. Scary movie or happy endings?
It's a toss up. It depends.
11. Favorite TV show?
Although I don’t watch a lot of TV, I have several shows that I enjoy. But I think I’m going to have to go with Sex and the City.
12. Summer or Winter?
Neither. I prefer spring or fall.
13. Hugs or Kisses?
With my family? Tons of both!
14. What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home?
15. Do you have any special talents?
I studied Spanish, German, and Arabic in college and, in some cases, can still get by; I can play the flute; I can cry just like a newborn baby; and I can find a yellow needle in a haystack on eBay. I'm the jack of all trades, master of none.
16. Where were you born?
Ann Arbor, Michigan. (Go Blue!)
17. What are your hobbies?
Blogging, teaching and practicing yoga, writing, traveling, and reading.
18. Do you have any pets?
No. But I love my mother's Bichon Frise, Sir Meister, like a little brother. He has quite the collection of Halloween get-ups:
19. Favorite movie?
20. What color is your car?
21. What do you want to be when you grow up?
I’ll do work that is fun and helpful; I’ll become a successful lifestyle expert and New York Times bestselling author; and I’d like to be interviewed by Oprah. Yeah, I dream big. (Hey, if I don’t believe in me, why should anyone else?)
This game is like the gift that keeps on giving because I've tagged the following awesome bloggers:
