Ask Away!


Thanks for all the congrats girls!!! You all were so sweet!

Stole this from Lynn:

Because we never really know each other as well as we think, in response to this post I’d like you to ask a question. Anything about which you are curious, anything you feel you ought to know about me. Silly, serious, personal, fannish. Ask away. Then copy this to your own journal, and see what people don’t know about you.

This should be interesting!!!!

  1. dana – this totally isn’t where i pictured i’d be. i had no idea that i’d be in virginia and no idea that we’d be trying to have a baby.
    5 years from now, i’d love to have my own business, be living in canada and 1 or 2 little ones running around the house! in 5 years, i’d love to see gay marriage be legal in the US.

    jude – yes! girl and boy names! i’m itching to tell you all…but, alas, i am sworn to secrecy. no one will know the baby names till the wee one is born. i assure you though, they’re good 😉 ( i can’t imagine any momma-to-be think’s any different!)

    casey – i’m not gonna lie. deep down, i want a girl. but i would be so thankful to just have a healthy baby. boy or girl.

  2. Good idea not to share baby names. Not because someone will “steal” them… but my wife shared with my MIL… and drama ensued. Better to be TOLD what the baby’s name IS rather than “could be” because everyone thinks their opinions matter! (That sounds bitchy… but honestly, I believe its a decision for the parents to make, not grandparents, inlaws, siblings, etc.)

  3. Great idea, ok here goes …

    Aside from love, relationship (s), ttc, etc… I would love for you to tell me three instances in your life when you felt a moment of pure personal joy. 😀 ??? Inquiring minds want to know!

  4. This one is mean, I admit, but J does it to me all the time, so here goes: If you could only have one of your dogs, which one would you choose and why?

  5. Dana – you hit the nail on the head. that is one of the main reasons why we’re not telling people early 🙂

    Lynn – You crack me up!! I have never [ sorry ;( ] worn edible underwear, but have thought that would be a funny thing to try. And uncomfortable….something makes me think they’d be very uncomfortable . . . . Okay, am I allowed to throw that one right back at you? Have you…..or Mindi? If so….. please tell!

    PCN – Tough. I think one would have to be when I got down to my goal weight, after a year of changing eating habits, and living on the treadmill – I stepped on the scale and felt very proud of the hard work I did to get there. Two – Taking my Nana up to our cottage (my parents) for the weekend. My Nana is in a Nursing Home – she’s 94, and can’t walk, can’t wheel herself, can’t eat by herself, or go to the bathroom. She was so appreciative to get away from those 4 walls of the home and see the cottage (she’d never been able to thusfar b/c of her health). It was a lot of work that weekend being the nurse for her, but it was well worth the reward. I’ll never forget that. In those moments, you truly realize how giving is much better than receiving. The third would be bringing our 2 puppies home. Karli and I were so happy to have 2 beagle pups – it was definitely a joyful moment!!

    Jessie – I currently work with Karli at the screenprinting shop – I love working with her every day. We really never get sick of each other – so it works out well! Also, we get to bring our 3 pups into work each day – that’s a HUGE perk! I really enjoy seeing someone’s ideas come to life on clothing! They design what they want (or we help them), and Karli prints it! It’s so cool to see how excited they are with the product. Screenprinting is just a very cool process!

    Sarah – I haven’t told my parents, and I probably am not going to until we’ve gotten married. My parents love me, but think that my lifestyle is “sinning”. They don’t tell me I’m going hell or anything… she just believes that it is not what God wants for my life. My mom would cry (not out of happiness…), and I just really feel like I can’t handle that right now. I can’t handle knowing that I’ve ruined the dreams that they had for me. My Dad would be hurt. I also think, what’s the point in causing her more pain? I’m happy – and living my life the way that I feel is best for me. They don’t understand it, and unfortunately, never will. We’re happy – that’s all that matters. We told Karli’s mom (who has been supportive of our relationship), she said that it was a pretty ring – but didn’t really say much else. We haven’t told Karli’s dad yet, but I know that he will be supportive. He approves of our relationship and loves hanging around us – he’s the type of guy that’s always joking around instead of being serious, you know? So, he’ll joke about us getting married, and who will walk me down the aisle, etc – but that’s his way of showing his approval and support.

    Meg – Long story made very short – I was 17, she was 18. We met at Liberty University – Jerry Falwell’s school. She went there because she was recruited for soccer on a scholarship, and it was a D1 school. I went because it was a Christian school, and I had been to Christian private schools all my life. My best friend (at the time) was going as well, so we had planned to room together. 1 semester in, and my whole life changed. My parents eventually found out about our relationship, and pulled me out of school. K and I didn’t talk for 8 months. My parents finally allowed me to go back, on conditions that I would not talk to her or be around her. That didn’t happen. So, 6 years and a lot of drama with the fam, here we are.

    RG – Girls – that is mean!!!! That’s like asking someone who they’d save in a burning building? I love all my babies, but if I had to pick (in theory) I would say Jarratt (and K knows this). Bentley and Olivia have to stick together, and have a strong bond with Karli. Jarratt is a pain if I’m not around – so, yeah, that’s my answer. But, still, mean question 😉

    Okay, that was a lot of writing. Whew.

  6. Sorry, I asked a serious and not so lovely question. But you two make each other happy, and you are make a family.

    Turnabout is fair play, ask me something uncomfortable.

  7. Tiff; Loved your answers. WIll respond in kind on my blog tomorrow when I have time to write . BTW, lost my nana *yes Nana” last yearat 94 ( yes 94. ) She was the last of my grandparentage with us.

    Reason I asked for personal joys didn’t want you stating the obvious. ( Karli and such) And I wanted you to pull something out of yourself.

    Anyway, about my nana …

    She was such a pip! Loved ( love ) her dearly.

    Maye I’ll share some poems I wrote about her some day.

    I need to get off my dial up. Using my office phone line. Bad me!!!!

  8. LOL sorry tiff- never eaten it or worn it, BUT if I had gotten more sleep last night and my eyes were not at half- staff right now, I would think up a creative and zesty fiction short for you… 🙂

  9. Sarah –

    best face cream – a tie here. i usually use Victoria’s Secret “55” which has been discontinued for about 3 1/2 years. Right after it got discontinued, I asked a manager about it at the semi-annual sale, and she pulled out a ton of it from the back room. Crazy me, I bought close to 200 dollars worth of it. And that was a sale price. I’m insane. I’m still using it…..3 years later. Lotion can go A LONGGGG WAY. And, I also like KEEN’s SHEA BUTTER & HONEY. They have that at Target, and it’s lovely.

    lip balm – burt’s bees

    coffee – with lots of cream and 1 tsp of sugar 🙂 i adore coffee. and tea 😉
