1. When it comes to good manners, what two top your list of most important?

I love a good "please" & "Thank you" ...

me being a germaphobe, I REALLY appreciate a covered sneeze... the RIGHT WAY.  Not in your hand!  In the crook of your arm!  Don't touch me with snotty, sneezy hands please.

But my biggest one that ranks high for me... Please.. PLEASE don't chew with your mouth full..  I'll probably throw up on you & that right there is NOT good manners.

Such bad manners... & I'm talking about her elbow on the table!

2. Let's open a proverbial can of worms...Common Core.  Are you familiar with the term (talking education reform in the USA)? If so, care to share your thoughts? In your opinion, what is one of the biggest issues schools (in your home country) face today?

I watched too much Biggest Loser I guess last night because the only thing I thought about when I heard "Common Core" is this...

Work that core!!!!!

Never even heard of it before...

3. Name a celebrity whose fashion sense you admire and share why.

I love everything about this girl... Emma Stone

She always looks so adorable... dressed up or casual.  Blond or red.. (I prefer red on her)...

but if I was that size, or that age, I think anything would look cute on me too...

A girl can dream

4. How are you affected by the changing seasons?

I hate winter coming... I really struggle with SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) ... when its dark at 5:00 & cold & I don't want to go outside.  I just want to hole up & do nothing until Spring.  It really does get me every year...

School... work... all the same... all in the dark....

5. Scariest book you've ever read?

I'm not much of a 'scary book' reader... but I do love Frank Peretti & Ted Dekker... separately and together... its the kind of intense books that have you on the edge of your seat.

6. What time of day are you most hungry?  What's your go-to snack?

I'm usually hungry most between lunch & dinner... that late afternoon...

Let's get real... this is actually  more the truth...
I usually try to keep a piece of fruit near me... but my snack of choice lately?


The bad thing?  I can eat the whole bag in like 10 bites...

7. Do you lean more towards being too needy or too independent? Which do you find harder to deal with in others?

I don't think many people WANT to say their too needy...everyone wants to say they can handle things on their own...

I also think there's a fine line in seeing it in others.  I don't mind people needing my help... but I also don't like it when people take advantage of that help.  Same with being too independent.  Sometimes people need help but they refuse it because of stubbornness....

Walk the middle of the line people...

8. Insert your own random thought here.

I'm getting excited about all the Halloween episodes coming up.  I've always been a fan of dressing up for Halloween & love to see the elaborate costumes that people on TV wear.  Halloween specials?  Love 'em ... Kelly & Michael?  Can't wait to see their costumes.  I always love to see what the ladies on The View wear too. 

Kelly & Michael last year... can't wait for this year's show

The TV shows that do up Halloween always make me smile too.  I still love to catch all the old "Roseanne" Halloween shows on Nick at Night... good stuff!


  1. cooper has started talking with this mouth open and we are working on that asap. i can't stand it when people do that. my grandparents are horrible about it.

  2. I haven't tried those chips. I'm always a little shocked when I see how many 'somethings' make up a serving. So small : ) Enjoy your weekend!

  3. It's a good thing we don't live near each other. I refuse to sneeze into my elbow - eww! Then my shirt is all nasty, whereas I can just wash my hands. Ha!

  4. I have to go with you on the 24 hr hungry...well really not hungry, just wanting to eat. lol

  5. I'm a germophobe too- I knew I liked you ;) People gross me out when they touch things with dirty hands- they seem to think that if there is no visible dirt there aren't any germs! Yuck!

  6. I watch Kelly & Michael every morning and I'm dying to see their Halloween costumes this year! You know they'll be a hoot! Where do you find Pop Chips? Never seen them before, but they do sound yummy!

  7. I thought common core referred to core as abs.

    I used to read scary books all the time when I was in elementary school.. the Fear Street series by RL Stine.

    Those costumes on Kelly and Michael are awesome!

  8. Frank Peretti does write some good books! I don't do scary; especially not after the book I read!

  9. I LOVE pop chips ... but I cannot control my portion sizes, so I refuse to buy them!
