:: Okay peeps here are the answers, hope you had fun..and if there are any other questions that I missed or you still want to ask, I'll keep the comments for that post open for the rest of today (thursday) ::
Q: Who and where do you get your hair done?
A: Blessings Hair @
108-19475 Fraser Highway
I usually have Suzie do my hair but last time I had the sweetest little Thai lady, but I don’t know her name.
Q: What makes you a good wife?
A: I don’t know as I am a good wife, you would have to ask Paul this. I’ll see if he has an answer for you.
PA: I think that for all of you to take the time to sit down in your busy lives and write out a question or a few…. All Shawna has to do is look at all of these questions (and her answers) and she will see for herself what makes her a good wife. All of the diverse projects she is involved and interested in keep her fresh and sharp. I’m the only dull one in here…..
Q: What makes you a good mother?
A: I’m a good mother (most of the time) because I have a good mother.
Now what makes me a good mother…hmmm I was going to say that I am a good mother because I put them before me, but that’s not always a good thing. So I would say I’m a good mother because I think my kids know where their “safe zone” is. They know home is safe (emotionally/physically/spiritually).
Q: What makes you a good friend?
A: I don’t know cause every time I think of a good thing that I am, there is a bad thing to go right along with it ;) I am one thing as a friend, which is thoughtful.
Q:If you could change one thing about your life now what would it be?
A: My weight
Q: Do you have any really BAD habits?
A: I really don’t have any bad habits…I’ll consult Paul on this one and see if he can come up with any.
PA: Paul gave me a few but options but they were not really bad habits….I’ll leave it with him and see if he comes up with any.
Q: What food will you not eat...ever?
A: Brussell Sprouts.
Q: Is there anything about yourself that totally bugs you?
A: No, I pretty much like myself…it would be hard to live as me if I didn’t like myself. When I do find something (or am told that I am this or that way) I change. I don’t wait. I just ask for God’s help and wisdom and change.
Q: If you could go back in time to one special moment in your life what would that be?
A: Honeymoon in
Q: What hobby do you find most enjoyable?
A: Probably baking because you get to see others enjoy it as well. However my scrapbooked photo album gets a daily visit from Jacob. It’s so cute to see him giggle and talk to the book.
Q: What would be your perfect "Shawna night out" without your husband and your boys?
A: Dinner @ the beach, a walk through downtown and window shopping, a hot Starbucks, and a great movie…all preferably with some great friends.
Q: What is something about your childhood that you want your kids to experience?
A: Camping, I have great camping memories...we didn’t have a lot of money but we always had an amazing time.
Q: What is something about your childhood that you want your kids to experience?
Q: What are some financial tips that you can share that have really helped you in budgeting your household?
A: Hmmm, I don’t know, I would probably say don’t live up to the Jones’ ~ Live your own life. And remember when you are shopping that if it’s not a need leave it on the shelf.
Q: Are you going to have anymore kids?
A: If you asked me two days ago…NO, but as of today…YES the plan is to have more kids, however that’s our plan so who knows what God has in store for us. And no probably not more than three, we both came from families of three so that is what we are comfortable with.
Q: What is your favorite clothing store for yourself? For your kids?
A: Ha Ha Ha – have you seen my wardrobe??? Mental note: Don’t shop where Shawna shops!!!! In all seriousness, I am so horribly frugal! Cheap to the bone. So to answer your question, I usually get my clothes from Superstore, their Joe line is great and trendy and I can usually find a great deal…like just the other day I bought white jeans (I know so practical for a mom of two boys!) for $5.49.
A: And for my boys I usually go to the kids swap @ Cloverdale Fairgrounds. I stock up a few months before. Plus our kids have great G&G’s that buy them clothes on a regular basis. Every once in a while I will buy something from Costco in the states (pj’s & sleepers) or find great deals @ Target.
Q: What's something you really like about yourself?
A: Hmmm, I would have to say my honesty. You don’t have to worry about not knowing what I think, cause I’ll let you know what it is! This is also my worst enemy!
A: And physically I think I’ve got great boobs – ha ha ha, does that sound shallow and it just might, but I’ve got great perky boobs. Thanks to my great genes!
Q: What is your favorite restaurant to eat and and Why?
A: Anywhere that Paul is there with me (there is a reason behind this). I know corny as all get out but I really don’t have a favourite restaurant. I can however think of a specific restaurant that we went to in
A: Now for you local folk, I would recommend trying out the Washington Avenue Grill in White Rock (at the east end of WR). There is a 2 for 1 in the Entertainment book. Expect to spend $50.00 - $75.00 but if you go on a Saturday or Sunday I believe there is live music. Such a great atmosphere!
Q: What is your least favorite restaurant to eat at and why?
A: I would have to say little hole in the wall restaurants, this is why I said that I always like to have Paul there. He has worked in the restaurant business and has a great sense of what restaurant is good and what one we should by-pass.
Q: What is your one indulgence - if you could have any one thing and it would MAKE your day, what would it be?
A: Fresh flowers from Flowers & Co.
Q: If you are sitting down to watch a movie at home, all snuggled in, what 3 things would you have with you?
A: Paul, wearing my lulu outfit & a diet pop
Q: What is your favorite cupcake recipe?
A: Thus far a super easy white cake recipe Laura sent over to me…the cupcakes end up flat so I can put tonnes of icing on top – email me directly and I will send it to you.
Q: What's your favorite organziational tip/tool?
A: If you have a moment, don’t wait on doing that chore. Do it and get it done. Don’t wait on someone else to come and do it or if it’s not “your job” in the house. Don’t do it with a bad attitude but with joy that you are furthering your home & working for the greater cause…the family.
Q: What do you see yourself doing 20 years from now?
A: Taking a trip to Europe with my family – I want to rent a home in Greece for a couple months one summer and have my kids come over to visit, that is what I would like to be doing in 20 years.
Q: If you HAD to be someone else for a day - who would you be and why?
A: Marilyn Monroe. I don’t know why, she’s just the first person that I think of when I think of who’s shoes I would like to wear for a day. Maybe I could change her outlook of herself…maybe I could have given her hope and a moral backbone to be a woman that respects herself?
Q: What is the most romantic thing Paul has done for you?
A: My most favourite things that Paul does for me are the little things like leaving a new cd in my cd player in my car, packing my water bottle, wrapping his arms around me, bringing me a Starbucks coffee fresh from the coffee shop the first day we are home with our new baby. It’s the little things, a note on the counter when we are passing in the wind.
Q: Your favourite dessert?
A: I love them all!
Q: Favourite paint colour?
A: Barharbor beige
Q: Favourite home keeping tip?
A: Wet dust…wipe everything down with a wet cloth, none of these swiffer type things, they just spread the dust (in my opinion) plus they add to my carbon footprint and Lord knows my hairspray is enough of a carbon footprint for my whole family!
Q: Favourite Bible verse?
A: Psalm 23 & 24
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
The earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.
Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? the Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory.
Q: Fave quote?
A: I don’t know cause I always screw up other things people say…I get laughed at for this often. I would have to say my own quote: “life it too short not to be organized” ~ Shawna
Q: Craziest thing you have done in your adult life?
A: I’m not a very crazy person, I’m so boring!
Q: What does your bedroom look like and what would you do to re-decorate it?
A: I will take a picture of my bedroom and post this as soon as the child sleeping in it is awake.
Q: umm..do you prefer lights on or off???hehe
A: On ;)
