Questions Answered Part 1

WOW! I didn't expect so much interest in me! It's a lovely surprise. Thank you for your great questions! They were a lot of fun to answer, and some required a bit of thought. There ended up being 20 total, so I will post the first 10 questions and answers today and the last 10 tomorrow.

1. What made you start blogging?
Being a military spouse, we've always moved far away from family and friends and it gets lonely. I needed an outlet to express myself, and I just wanted to be heard. To connect with others in the world I could relate to...other mothers, other military spouses, SAHM, etc. The blogging world became the social connection I was missing.

2. You say you're a "quiet person," Do you find that you express yourself better by writing, or are you able to express yourself "in person" just as well?
I express myself best in writing, no question about it. I am a terrible speaker, even in a casual conversation. I stumble over my words, I studder, and my thoughts in my head are clear, but they don't come out through words the way I want them to. When speaking, I definitely do the best one on one. I am more comfortable writing though, the words seem to flow better.

3. What's the last book you read? ( I don't mean "The Very Hungry Caterpillar;" I'm really asking what you read for YOU.
Well, I saw the musical Wicked three months ago and LOVED it! So I went out and got the book that the play was based on, but I didn't even finish it because I didn't like it. The last book I read was "Into the Wild" by Jon Krakauer and that was a good book. I like to read inspiring stories, true stories.....I mostly read Christian books and self-improving/motivational books.

4. What is the weirdest thing you have ever eaten?
I don't eat very adventurously. I have eaten eel and shark, but I wasn't impressed with either.

5. Do you prefer coffee or tea?
The only time I drink hot tea is when I have a sore throat (works every time). I love coffee!

6. Do you prefer heels or flats?
I love shoes! I love the way heels look style-wise, but I can't wear heels because I have very weak ankles. I prefer wearing flats or shoes with a wedge.

7. Do you think Adam and Eve had belly buttons or not? ;)
Hahaha. This question made me smile. Never in my life have I ever thought about that...that's interesting though. I don't know....maybe not.

8. What are a few items you can't live without? Besides your beautiful family of course.
I couldn't live without chocolate :) My wedding ring/engagement ring and my mommy bracelet with my daughter's name on it are very special to me. I don't feel complete when I take them off. My Bible is my life guide, so I need that. A purse of some kind, because everything I need when I am away from home is in there. A notebook and pen because my life consists of lists.

9. What is your greatest achievement?
That's an easy one....having my daughter and becoming a mother. 

10. What is your greatest regret?
Doing too much physically with boyfriends before marriage.                  


  1. Shark? You are definitely a more adventurous eater than I ever could be!

  2. Wow! Some great questions and some interesting answers. Thank you for sharing with us, you are always so very open and honest in your writing (we have a lot in common because I too find it so much easier to write than to talk and I do love chocolate!).

    Looking forward to reading Part Two!

  3. Thank you for sharing. Being a mother is a great accomplishment :)

  4. These are great questions and answers. I'm looking forward to the next set.

  5. How fun! I loved getting to know you more through these questions!!!!!!
