Info About Me: 411

One of my favorite reads comes from From Mrs. To Mama and Becky has set up some great questions...as if you don't know enough about me!

1. How long have you been blogging? And what got you started on blogging? Has your blog changed?
I started 16 months ago and haven't looked back.  One fateful event that started me off....these little pastel tests.

Most amazing day of my life....
Fast forward to today and now I've got this...
...until the day I had him. And every day since then tops the last.
2. Did you go to college? If so where, and what did you study?
Can't spell drunk without UNK!! Yep...I just said that. I spent four years of my life at the University of Nebraska-Kearney and loved every minute of it. It's where I met some of the most amazing people and met the most amazing man, my hubby.

3. Where have you traveled?
Many states in the U.S., Mexico City, Mazatlan, Merida, Cancun, Cabo San Lucas, Isla Mujeres. Yep, that's only Mexico, BUT I absolutely love to travel and will eventually make it EVERYWHERE. First stop: Europe, most specifically Italy.

4. If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you would buy?
Depends on how much...but more than likely a new house. I want little man to have all the space in the world to grow and live and play. A close second would be to donate some bucks to a cause near and dear to my heart - Angels Among Us. And then travel, travel and more travel with everyone I love most.

5. What are your 3 biggest pet peeves?
1) Mean people - it isn't hard to be nice
2) Talking on your phone in line at the grocery store
3) Using the kid-friendly stall in the bathroom, when EVERY other stall is open, and you DON'T have a kid

6. What is your favorite movie?I'm going to add an (s) to that:  Breakfast at Tiffany's and Now & Then.  Favorite.Movies.Ever.

7. What is your drink of choice; wine, beer, or liquor. Or Water, Soda, Tea?Vino by far is my first choice, but also enjoy a frosty Corona Light or a Ketel One Club Soda w/ a lime. I don't discriminate.

8. What is something you enjoy to do when you have me time?A nice long run around the lake, read a book (I miiiiisss reading...), shopping. I love doing things by myself, and while it doesn't happen often, I relish it when I have the chance. However, I love my new shopping and running buddy.

9. If you could have a $10,000 shopping spree to one store, which store would it be?Victoria's Secret online...not in the stores, a girl only needs so many panties and bras. No, I'm talking about the online clothing store. I could get lost there forever!

10. Share with us an embarrassing moment of your past? Or present.I had nightmares about childbirth and what would happen when I was knee deep in the middle of labor...I had AWFUL nightmares about this and everything that could possibly happen while I was pushing and pushing and squeezing and you know the rest...fortunately, the epidural and just the fact that you are giving birth to a human makes you forget about anything embarrassing. And to this day, I don't actually know what happened. :)

11. What day would you love to relive again?I know it sounds cliche but I would love to relive my wedding day again. I really feel that I can't remember all of the details and after getting the video and pics back I felt I missed so many things...most importantly the Michael Jackson dance off between the hubby and his brothers!

12. If your life was turned into a movie... what actor would play you?I have always loved Jennifer Aniston...I think she could portray me perfectly. 

13. What are the jobs you had in high school/college/the early years?Waldbaum's (chicken factory) - my sis & I begged dad not to make us work there in high school
Maurice's - yep, schlupping clothing to all of my girlfriends
First National Bankcard - telemarketing in Wayne
Kirby Vacuums - my first college job setting up carpet cleaning appointments
Solar Eclipse Tanning Salon
O'Mally's Bar - bartender
Kearney Country Club - beer cart girl
New York Knicks - sponsorships/partnerships and game night staff
Executive Casino Host - where it all began with Harrah's Entertainment

14. Show us a picture from high school or college.(I don't think my computer's storage goes back that far...)

The hubs and I - first pic ever. And I'm talking the year 2000. Love him.
15. If you could travel anywhere in the world, all expenses paid, where would you go?The hubby and I have been talking about Bali for so long...(no, it wasn't the luxurious trip the Kardashians took there that got me excited)

16. Show us the most current picture of you or you, or your family, or anything of meaning to you. 

17. Where do you see your life 5 years from now?
The hubby, Cruzer and myself...caring for Little Mango #2. I hope the hubby and I are doing something we love, living in a new house and having enjoyed many days of travel. I can't wait to see what our family will look like in five years....I just don't want to speed it along too fast.
