8 Questions x2

Ashley from Kiwi's & Cocktails tagged me for these questions....

1. If you won a free, expenses paid trip to any ONE country, which one would it be?
Hmm this is tough - Ireland

2. If you could redo college (undergrad) for free, would you choose the same degree?
Yep.  I loved my school {Go UW!} I loved my classes and degree.  Perhaps I would have ACTUALLY used my degree...

3. Would you rather live in the City or the Country?
Hmm, I like both for different reasons.  I do think there is something special about the country.  Endless fields and trees and mountains.  The sounds of crickets and seeing the stars clearly every night, catching firefly's... But maybe just a country area 20 minutes from the city so I could still go get sushi??

4. Would you rather run 5 miles or bike 10?
Neither?  I only do physical activity that is behind closed doors... like the neighbors can't see me wii boxing through the windows and no one can see behind the bedroom door!

5. Do you already have your future children’s names picked out?
Yes.  Well, sorta.  We have a girls name picked out - Ellie Rose for those who are curious, but boys names are tough.  Aiden was easy we knew it before we got married, but thinking of a second one is a struggle.  We are toying with Owen lately. 

6. Are you team Bill Compton or Eric Northman (If you don’t watch True Blood, you can skip this question)
I don't watch this show.  However, I am TEAM JACOB!!

7. What is your favorite TV show? If you want you can say which is your favorite show whose season just ended and one that is about to start? Like for me, True Blood is ending, but House and Modern Family will be starting soon.
Well I love me some Big Brother and am very sad that I am watching the finale now - go Lane!  I am very excited though for Grey's and Criminal Minds and Parenthood to return.

8. What do you think is the most important detail of a wedding, that you attend? For example, The DJ/band/music, cake, ceremony vows, main meal, open bar, etc?
I guess I'd have to say the ceremony - that's what the wedding really is right?  I do think that good food and music is important though for friends and family to have a good time celebrating with you.  I know people still mention our wedding meal and we've been married 2 years now.  That clearly was a GOOD meal!  Open bar is the least important - I hate people who go to celebrations just to get drunk.  We don't need booze to enjoy ourselves.

Katie at Third Times A Charm wanted me to answer these questions:

1. What is the weirdest dream you have ever had?
I have this repeat dream about Killer Whales.  I've had several of them, but the idea is always the same - they are attacking me or waiting to. 

2. What is your favorite weeknight dinner recipe?
Oh my mom made this crockpot rosemary chicken and potatoes recently that was TO DIE FOR - can't wait to have it again!

3. If arranged marriages still happened, who would you choose for your child?
I would pick someone who made me laugh and who I would want my own daughter to be like.  If you can't get along with your MIL you are in trouble! 

4. Who is your favorite author?
Danielle Steel.  Sad truth, I've read more of her books than anything else.  I've read a lot of Mary Higgins Clark too.

5. What is a song that speaks to how you feel right now?
Every Day by Rascall Flatts.  Some of the lyrics that speak to me:  "I drive myself crazy tryin' to stay out of my own way.  The messes that I made, but my secrets are so safe.  The only one who gets me, yeah, you get me, It's amazin' to me... how every day, every day, every day, you save my life.

I come around all broken down and crowded out, and you're comfort.  Sometimes the place I go is so deep and dark and desperate, I don't know, I don't know how every day you save my life.

6. What is one of your favorite photos? (post it!)
This was the first picture that Kris and I ever took together and to me it's perfect.  We both look soo happy.  And sexy!  I want ot be that skinny again.  This was our first real date.

7. What is your favorite movie?
The Notebook

8. What is one of your favorite activities to do as a family?
Games or puzzles.  We used to do "family nights" and everyone would get together once a week, eat and play card games or board games.  Kris and like to do puzzles together too, although it always turns into a competition of who did more of the puzzle.  lol  I just like quality fun family time.  As far as my little family of 3 goes, the zoo was my favorite time yet.

Goodness those were some good questions!  Now I must think of my own 8 to pass along for answers!  Here we go...


1.  What is your go to snack food?
2.  What do you do to be creative?  Scrapbook, draw, write, make crafts... besides the bloggy thing please.
3.  Who is the one person no longer in your life that made the biggest impact on you {good or bad just say which} - they can be living or dead, just no longer someone you have contact with.
4.  What did you want to be when you grew up?
5.  What book are you currently reading?
6.  What is you favorite part of the Christmas holidays?
7.  How do you take your coffee?
8.  Do you fold and put up your laundry right away or let it pile up?
