There are lots of things that I like to do if I am feeling down...Pinterest, make some chocolate pudding (and eat it!), makes something crafty, get a hug from my hubby, but to be honest the first thing that came to mind when I read the question was calling my Grandma (and not to be a Debbie Downer) but I cant do that anymore because she passed away this summer. She would always cheer me up whenever I called, and there have been several times in the past few months I really wished I could call her...Oh, shoot! Now I need some chocolate pudding and Pinterest time!
2) If you had to live in a different time period which would you prefer?
Well, when I was a little girl I wanted to live in the l800's and be a pioneer like Laura Ingalls Wilder...but then I grew up and realized just how incredibly HARD of a life that was. And they didn't have deodorant - smelly! So now I would say the 1920's or maybe Ancient Greece...ok, I can't pick!
3) What is the most creative Halloween costume you've ever worn?
I don't know if it was the MOST creative, but my FAVORITE Halloween costume was from 3rd grade. Each student in my class had to research a historical figure and dress up as them for Halloween to give a speech about them. I was....you guessed it, Laura Ingalls Wilder. My Grandma Nona made the best dress for me, with a bonnet and everything.
4) Five weird things about you we wouldn't know without being told?
ummm....(1) I always sneeze in even numbers...never just one sneeze, always two or more. But always an even number. (2) I would rather spend an evening snuggled on the couch with my hubby than out being social. (3) I am horrible at any sport that involves a ball, bat, or racket. (4) I would rather swim a mile than run a mile. (5) I have a sister-in-law who is 4 years old, well, she is almost 5 now.
5) What would you tell your 16-year-old self?
I would tell myself to stop worrying about those silly high school boys and to just be patient for the perfect man - he is coming, but it will be a few more years. And he will be totally worth the wait!
