Happy Friday everyone. My son has been home for Spring Break and instead of partying it up, we’ve had a pretty stilted vacation because he’s grounded. Fun for me, right?
Thankfully, I get to “Ask Away Friday” with a newbie, Kevin of Who Woulda Thought? Since he’s new and some of you may not know me, we did some “get to know you” questions. I want to make sure you head over there and check out his 50 Shades of Grey review. Pretty funny!

What was your favorite food when you were a child?
Is it sad that my favorite food then and still one of my top five now are McDonald’s french fries. To this day, if I go to McDonald’s, I have to get some fries. Thankfully, I can get the small and that’s enough, because you know, Super Size Me didn’t do me any favors.
What’s the #1 most played song on your iPod?
No really a fair question since I don’t have all of my music on my music player. So, right now, it’s Be Blessed by Yolanda Adams.
This quote has served me well, from heart ache and pain, in my adult years. I do believe people can change, but they have to show me that change before my heart changes. Promises just aren’t good enough any more.
What chore do you absolutely hate doing?
Floors. All things floors ~ vacuuming, sweeping or mopping.
If you could choose to stay a certain age forever, what age would it be?
Probably my age now. I’m old enough to drink and be taken seriously. I’m young enough to not have too many body issues and it’s one of those ages that depending how you take care of yourself, you can be seen as 25 or 45.
If you knew the world was ending at the end of this year, what would you make sure you do?
This is a tricky question. Does anyone else know?
If everyone else knew, I’d stockpile food and make sure everyone that I love is close. I’d create my own bomb shelter, because we all know that most people won’t prepare until the end.
If no one else knew, I’d travel the world with my family, going to the best locations and seeing everything that I haven’t gotten to see yet.
When you have 30 minutes of free-time, how do you pass the time?
Normally watch television. I have a DVR full of shows that I haven’t been able to see lately.
What would you name the autobiography of your life?
What’s the hardest thing you’ve ever done?
This is a hard one. This will also be my entry to Finish the Sentence Friday.
My proudest moment was finishing law school as a single mother.
Quick backstory… I got pregnant after my second year of law school. My son’s father (now husband) was also in grad school many, many, many miles away. He couldn’t help physically until our son was about six months. Because of distance, we weren’t solidified in the relationship. Fast forward, we’ve been married for eight years and welcomed three other children into this world.
My daughter may be “advanced”. I’m not sure though. Butterfly’s 15 month appointment was last week, even though she’s 16 months. The doctor asked how many words does she speak. My response was a couple of dozen. The doctor looked startled and responded “That’s a lot.” So far, Butterfly says these words:
- MeMe (her nickname)
- Ets-o (Let’s Go)
- Rewe-et-o! (Ready Set Go)
- One-oo-ree-or-i (1-2-3-4-5)
- e-i-n-e-0 (B-I-N-G-O, her favorite song)
- i-wuv-u (I love you)
- tak-u (Thank You)
- pwees (Please)
These are the words that I have some sort of meaning to them, she has some sort of understanding of what these mean. I am proud to say she says “Thank you” unprompted (and correctly) often. She repeats almost everything though.
