:: Answers ::

Wow you girls came up with some humdingers...and let me say, you stumped me on some of these! Okay, disclaimer...I am totally {sometimes} indecisive, most of the time, however when I'm not totally undecided I totally know what I want. Does any of this make any sense!?! Okay so on to the answers ::

Q:
What is your favorite quick and easy dinner recipe right now?
A: Currently my favorite quick recipe is lettuce wraps

Q: What is my favorite or least of the following?
1. Body Part
Favorite: Boobs - Least: Stomach
2. Item of clothing
Favorite: Trouser Jeans - Least: Poor fitting bra
3. Place to visit
Favorite: London, England - Least: Home Depot, it gives me an immediate headache
4. Things to do in my spare time
I don't have spare time
5. Food
Favorite: Anything I'm not supposed to eat - Least: Carrots & Brussell Sprouts

Q: What is my #1 favorite quick tip for getting the house on the way to "in order"?
A: Pick up the floors...well not literally, but pick up and put away everything that is on the floors. Start in the entrance, shoes on the floor into the shoe bins/racks...and go room by room...soon enough you will find that you have pretty much picked up the whole house and your spirits in the meantime. This is the first thing I do when I want to clean or do a quick "once through" my house.

Q: What is your #1 best storage advice for a pantry?

A: Limit the space that you allot for the pantry...if you have too much space you will pack too much junk. And, make sure to go through your pantry every 3 months. When I sort through my pantry I make up my "pantry meals" using stuff found in my pantry and deep freezer that needs to be eaten or else it'll be wasted, this saves us money and keeps the junk in the pantry down to a minimum. I also have three jars with rotating choices of snacks for the boys that at any time they can access {sometimes this is a good thing, sometimes not so much!}

Q: What is your #1 favorite pick for best nude lip colour?
A: My face concealer outlined with a bit of #666 Brandy Wine {yeah, bad I know} lip liner by WET 'N WILD then topped w/ a clear gloss or vaseline...Love it! And it has been my standard since I was 15!

Q: What is your #1 favorite CD right now?
A: Kim Walker - here is my song

Q: What is your #1 thing you look forward to in Spring?
A: The sun setting later in the evening, it feels more refreshing to have the skies brighter for an extra hour after dinner + a nice walk + the smell of the grass being cut for the first time + the fresh flowers blooming out of the ground..I could go on, I really LOVE Spring!

Q: When are we having another baby?

A: We're in discussions as to if we are going to have another one...we vacillate back and forth between going for it and having another one, or being completely content with having the boys. We are some days SO good with the two boys, but both of us would like another baby...we'll have to see what this next year bring, as of right now though there are no plans for a baby.

Q: Favorite dessert to take to a friends place?

A: I don't have a favorite really, I do love to make Social Apple Betty {by best of bridge} - it's a warm, light, apple dessert that you top with vanilla ice cream...it's usually a super hit!

Q: How do you pick yourself up when you're feeling blah
A: Depends on what kind of blah I'm feeling - sometimes I just need to wash my face and take some time to freshen up and that hits the spot. Other times I need to get fresh air, dance around the house blasting music or sit down and read. Sometimes even cleaning helps me fight the blah feeling - - - I know, I'm sick!

Q: Do you have a non profit/charity that is near and dear to your heart?
A: Yes, UGM {as they call themselves now} but to me it's still Union Gospel Mission. For a very very long time I have been hosting meals there through my donations and I have to say that the first time I thought about it is when I was nine and I saw my Grandpa filling out a form for a donation.

Q: What is your favorite worship song?
A: I don't know if I have a favorite right now but I do love anything by Kim Walker

Q: If you could go on a vacation anywhere in the world where would you go?
A: Right now, I would be happy to go anywhere warm...however a dream of mine has been to go to Greece & The South of France. My most favorite place to vacation is Hawaii...that is where my heart rests first.

Q: What is your song, the song that describes you to a "T", more like, hey that's me when you hear it?
A: WoW - you really stumped me on this one! I don't really have "a song" - I have so many facets of me that are so diverse that I will go from loving my country songs to classical to pop...I am a total pop rocker when I'm in the car - I LOVE dance music! So the answer is no, I don't have a song, that being said -- I have signature songs that represent different parts of my life and at any time I hear that song and it totally transports me back to that time in my life...I LOVE music...almost all of it, seriously even rock - do I look like a rocker type girl?

Q: Who would you go see for the ultimate concert experience?
A: I've been to quite a few concerts, but my all time, always wanted to see concert, I would have to say Celine Dion would be my first choice, then Sting, then Phil Collins...told you I had eclectic taste in music ;)

Q: What is your favorite thing to do in the Summer?

A: Go to the lake for the day

Q: Do you and Paul have nicknames for each other? Names that you can share that is ;) What about nicknames for the boys?
A: Nicknames I have for Paul: "Babe" & "P" are the typical ones but if I'm mad at him or he frustrated me I call him "Jerk face" - I know, not nice but it's true. I'm happy to report that mostly he's called "Babe"!
A: Nicknames Paul has for me: the most typical is "Shaw", "Babe", "Shawnee", "Georgie" - yeah, apparently I wear a few different hats! Mostly though it's "Shaw".
A: Nicknames for the boys: Jacob is usually "JJ" to me and "Jakers" to Daddy - Cole is usually "Cole" (I know so original!) and often "Coley" - then there is Jacob's nic name for Cole which is "Ugh Huh", but just today he started saying "Col" clearer, so we might get rid of the "ugh huh" but if you ask Cole what his name is he says "ugh huh" so we're afraid it's stuck!

:: Thanks for all the fun questions gals! You really had me thinking on these ones! ::
