Blog Parade Giveaway + Interview!!

I read about Rear Window's cute blog party & giveaway on a blog friend's blog & decided to link up! You all know I'm a sucker for a good giveaway & Abigail is giving away some cool items to a select few people who join in on the fun. So, I decided why not?  I'm off right now & this will be a good way for some of my followers to get to know me! Enjoy & please feel free to leave a comment if you have any follow up questions. :o)

1. What's your favorite time of the day, and why?
Hmmm, I guess I like 6pm (during the week), when I get home from my 12- hour days (I work 9 hours & commute 1.5 hours each way, so I'm away from home from 6am-6pm every day I go into the office, which is only 3 days a week!). My hubby, puppy (okay, maybe he's not a puppy anymore, but still a cutie) & I just get time to spend with each other & to have dinner together - very relaxing part of my day. I love my guys so much & can't wait until we add to our family & get to spend this time with our children as well!
2. If health wasn't an issue, what food could you live off of?

 This is an easy one! Chipotle. I freakin' love that place - it's quick & sooo yummy. If you have them in your area & you've never been, definitely head over & try it out. My fav is the Chicken Burrito Bowl w/ rice, black beans, fajita peppers & onions, corn salsa, lettuce, a teeny bit of cheese & sour cream on the side; served with their yummy homemade tortilla chips. ::drool::

3. If you could have one wish granted (besides wishing for more wishes), what would it be?

 To add to our family with a little bundle (or two, possibly three eventually) of joy! I can't wait to experience pregnancy, deliver our children & raise my children w/ the most wonderful man I know - my husband - who I'm sure will be an amazing dad!

4. What's one thing that you get teased about a lot?

Well my hubby likes to tease me about my retainers. I had braces for about 3 years from 2006 until right before our wedding in 2009, and still wear retainers in the evening. So, he likes to tease me by calling me 'tainer all the time or if I mention tater tots...he calls them 'tainer tots! LMAO, no worries though, I tease him equally as much!

5. If you could choose one movie, book, or TV show to spend your life in, which would you pick? What type of character would you be?

 OMG, this is an easy one for me!! I'd be on Desperate Housewives...I LOVE that show & have been a fan since it first started. I could totally see myself being good friends with all of the "girls" on the show. I think I'd be kinda a mix between Gabby & Bree: I'd be a career woman & working mom (like Bree), but I'd be glamorous, sexy, witty, funny & have killer style when it's time to dress up (like Gabby). 

6. If you could have one talent that you don't already have, what would it be?

Sewing...like being able to sew clothes, items, pillows, etc. I follow lots of blogs where there are sooo many talented young wives & mothers who make such cute things for their homes & kids! I wanna learn how to do that....waaaaah...it is on my list of things to try & learn this year.

7.If money were no object, where would you go on vacation?

I'd go on a Mediterranean luxury cruise of Greece, Spain & Italy, where we docked in each country for at least a few days & were able to travel around to major sites/places of interest in each country.

8. If you were an awesome singer, which genre would you sing?

Probably R&B/soul - like Mariah! I love how she sings & she's beautiful to boot!

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

Hands down - Pottery Barn & PB Kids (for when I have children. I LOVE their stuff, but usually can't afford any of it, hehehe.

10. If you could live in any point in time, when would it be?

Hmm, I kinda like living in the time we live in now. I can't really imagine living in another time, and of course, there is always good & bad about each time period.

11. If every outfit in your wardrobe had to be one color, what would it be?

Some form of blue - I love aqua blue especially! My bridesmaids wore aqua/Tiffany blue for our wedding & my reception theme was "Something Blue"!

12. If you were one of the seven dwarves, which one would you be?

 Happy! He was always so cheerful (hence, the name) & I'm a pretty happy person so he fits best for me!

13. What's the last album you listened to?

::runs to check iPod:: TI vs. TIP...love TI - he's just so smooth when he raps!!

14. What's something we'd be surprised to know about you?

I am a BIG time worrier & (attempted) perfectionist - another way I'm like Bree (from Desp. HW). The funny part is, I have NO clue where that part of my personality came from - my mom (who I was raised by) is the furthest thing from a worrier - or maybe she is & I just never noticed it?! I hope I don't pass that trait on to my kids...life seems so much easier when you can go with the proverbial flow!

That was so much fun - hope you got a chance to learn a little more about me. Head on over to Abigail's blog, check it out & enter yourself! But hurry, the party ends on March 8th! If you decide to enter, please leave a comment on this post, along with the link. Since you guys show me so much, I'd love to check out the survey questions for my followers! And, since I have been on this recent kick of winning blog giveaways, I think it may soon be time for my own. I'm going to start brainstorming a nice giveaway item & let you guys know about it very soon!

Love this! I can totally relate on the commuting and the desp. house.wives.

I've been thinking of you. I hope you have a great week.

Hi, Jennifer! So nice to meet you! LOVED reading all your answers. You sound like a very special young lady. I pray you and Dennis get to have that family you want soon.

And the sewing... I highly recommend learning! My mama taught me when I was nine-years-old and I haven't stopped sewing since! Now I make things for my grandkids to enjoy!

Love the great photo of you and Dennis and your cute doggie! :D

{hugz} to you, hon!
