I think as women, many of us are spread so thin, and often times the first thing to be put on the back burner is ourselves. It's nice to take a minute or two and focus on "ME" - and hopefully it's a little way that each of you can get to know me a little better as well!
1. When you're feeling down, what do you do to pick yourself up?
My infamous "Whine and Wine" nights seem to always do the trick. 1 part good friend, 1 part wine (junk food optional) and some whining usually solves any sort of little funk.
If I'm really down, reading to Noah always brings me back down to earth and eases me. Nothing a little "Where the Wild Things Are" or Dr. Seuss therapy can't fix.
2. If you had to live in a different time period, which would you prefer?
I've said it before, and I'll say it again, I'd love to live in the 1960's for the styles alone. Those crisp lines, and killer structure to the fashion then (think MadMen) is to die for.
It's a tight race with the 1980's though - any excuse to crimp my hair and bust out the leg warmers!
3. What is the most creative Halloween costume you've ever worn?
I love Halloween - and always come up with really great ideas early in the year - and forget them by the time Halloween rolls around.
4. Five weird things about you we wouldn't know without being told?
a. Some call it soothing, but the sound of crickets at night, irks me.
b. My fear of water is not due to the depth or fear of drowning, but rather the fish that lurk in the water that could potentially suck on my toes!
c. I have the taste buds of a 5 year old - ketchup only on my hot dogs, plain sandwiches, and chicken nuggets are ok with me!
d.I have never watched any of the Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, or Matrix movies.
5. What would you tell your 16-year-old self?
Don't be afraid to be yourself. Staying true to yourself and your beliefs is much more valuable than any Homecoming Crown or Varsity position you could have.
