A Wee Bit Of Me

I’m linking up with Leigh Ashley today for We Bit Wednesdays.

{one} how many times have you been a bridesmaid/maid of honor?
I was a bridesmaid for a college friend about ten years ago. My little sister is getting married on Saturday and I’m the Matron of Honor! I’m so excited and I still need to work on that speech.

{two} what’s the last thing you do before you fall asleep at night?
I used to read, but since our baby is still in our bedroom, so I do a quick check of Facebook and email on my phone before closing my eyes.

{three} you just won your dream vacation, all expenses paid. where are you going?
A world cruise!

{four} what is your favorite outdoor activity?
Sitting around the fire and roasting marshmallows. I’m not a big outdoors person. I do like to swim and take walks through parks though.

{five} as a child, what did you want to “be when you grew up”? did you end up there?
I went back and forth between teacher and lawyer all my life, including in college. I was an elementary education major for the first three years and even taught Kindergarten. But I switched to political science my last year. I had to do two extra quarters because of it. After getting a paralegal certificate and working in a law firm, I decided that I never want to be an attorney. My focus in life is my family. I work to live, not live to work. As a paralegal, I get the best of both worlds: working with attorneys (and doing a lot of the work) and clocking out at 5:00 pm every day without taking anything home with me.

{six} what are three things your dream home would have that you don’t currently have?
A bigger garage (our two-car garage only holds one car), a sprinkler system and a fireplace.

{seven} what’s for dinner tonight?
Nachos!

{eight} if someone stopped by your house unannounced on a typical Saturday night, what would they find you doing?
If it was early in the night, Jacob and I would be on the floor, playing with our kids. If it was after their bedtime, we would either be watching a movie together or I’d be watching TV in the family room while Jacob plays video games in his office.

{nine} what’s your average monthly water bill?
We pay a fixed $112 every other month.

{ten} what do you do to relax?
Watch TV or read.

Ah! That's so awesome that you've been (and are going to be!) in so many weddings! Can't wait to hear about the stories this weekend :D Nachos sound like a delicious dinner - but a world cruise sounds even better :D

I've never been in anyone's wedding. Tragic!
