Questions

1. How long have you been blogging? And what got you started on blogging? Has your blog changed?

I have been blogging now for  two years! Actually two and a half. But to be honest with you... I feel like it has been much longer.  Initially, I started blogging about "weddings and marriage" because I was brand new newlywed... and can anyone take a guess what changed my blog?  I'll give you a hint, her name starts with E and ends with lliana. :)

2. Did you go to college? If so where, and what did you study?

Why yes, I did! And I am one proud Purdue Boilermaker! I had the absolute best college experience {not to mention I met my husband there}, and I wouldn't change a thing about it. I studied nursing {obviously}. 


3. Where have you traveled?
I have traveled to France, and Hawaii. I have also gone on a cruise where I was able to visit Jamaica, the Bahamas, Cayman Islands, and Mexico. And obviously I have been to other states in the US.


4. If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you would buy?
This was a really hard one. I'm like... first thing?! I mean, really, what wouldn't I buy....But once I thought about it, I would definitely first go online and buy an all inclusive vacation for all of my family members. For? Tomorrow. 

5. What are your 3 biggest pet peeves?

1. People who don't know the rules of the road.
2. Politic talk coming from the mouths of the uneducated.
3. Terrible customer service.

6. What is your favorite movie?

I honestly don't have a favorite... but if you want to know the first movie that came to mind... that would be Bad Santa. Why yes, I just said that.

7. What is your drink of choice; wine, beer, or liquor. Or Water, Soda, Tea?

Currently, whilst pregnant? Water. Non-pregnant? Beer. But not just any beer... BLL hands down.

8. What is something you enjoy to do when you have me time?

Blog. Catch up on trash tv that I have DVR'd. Read a book {rare, very rare these days}. Photography.

9. If you could have a $10,000 shopping spree to one store, which store would it be?

Well well well. Since 10,000 sounds like a whole lot of money... I'd have to say that I'm still pretty cheap, and I would probably spend it all at... Macy's ... and half of it would probably go towards Christmas Presents... and they would all still have to be on sale... 50% off or more. Gosh, I sound cheap ;)

I changed this after the fact... but while driving home from work this morning... a light bulb went off in my head and I realized.. duh... I would totally spend it all at TJMAXX. Christmas presents and all.

10. Share with us an embarrassing moment of your past? Or present.

Oh man. I have so many... where do I even begin. But when I sit down to actually think of some? I can't. The most recent though I have to say is when I had a nursing student follow me, and I was in a "Teaching" moment when I realized that I said something totally wrong. And when I realized it... I felt like a total asswhat. Then? I sit there and think about it over and over again. Like now, now that I said it... I'm so thinking about it.

11. What day would you love to relive again?

My birth day. Well not mine... haha, my daughter's. It honestly went so fast, and there were so many moments that I wish I could just put in slow motion and live through them again. Not change anything... just do it again.

12. If your life was turned into a movie... what actor would play you?
Julia Roberts. Not because I think I am as beautiful as her.... but because she is pretty much amazing.

1. Meijer- Bagger then cashier. Worked there for 3.5 years

13. What are the jobs you had in high school/college/the early years?

2. Quiznos: 3 months... and the only reason I worked there because my 2 best guy friends did. So I just wanted to hang out with my friends.
3. Bravo-  Restaurant hostess for 5 years.
4. Hospital: Student nurse

14. Show us a picture from high school or college.



Senior Year 2009. Boy... do I look young. And to think... I was pregnant 1 year later 
15. If you could travel anywhere in the world, all expenses paid, where would you go?
Easy. Bora Bora. 
16. Show us the most current picture of you or you and your family.
That's about as good as our family pictures get these days with the self-timer :)
 17. Where do you see your life 5 years from now?
A see happiness. I see myself celebrating 8 beautiful years with my husband. Having two beautiful, healthy, happy children {maybe three}. Continuing in my nursing career, and perhaps maybe even buying a new home by that time. I just hope the Lord allows me to be here on earth with my family. That is my ultimate dream for the next 5 years {and beyond}.
