7. Q: How do you get your hair to look so great all the time? What products do you use? Do you have styling tips?

A: I don’t put my hair in a box; it is its own beast, so I don’t try to do something with it that it doesn’t want to do. And it has a lot to do with time too..if you see me in a hat, you know my hair was not cooperating! And use PSSSSST Dry Shampoo…ahhh, LOVE!

8. Q: Where do you find your inspiration for decorating your home?

A: I have a colour pallet that I love and I decorate in that same colour family. I have other pops of colour but minimal. I find that if I use the same base colours it will create a cohesive pallet full of warmth and comfort – and those colours are the ones I’m most attracted to.

A: I don’t like panty lines ;)

12. Q: On a really rough day what do you do to get you out of a grouchy mood? [if you ever have them! *wink*]

A: Of course I have grouchy days! What to I do to get out of them…s p a c e --- I give myself lots of space…and light a couple candles. You know the old saying: Don’t say anything unless you have something good to say --- well I keep myself out of sight, cause I am just not in the best space & I make sure that I get some good devotional time in. Prayer & petition, talking to God always helps. As well as some great music...usually very loud!

13. Q: What kind of camera do you use? I love your photography!

A: Thank you! I use my Nikon D40 that was my Christmas present 3 years ago from my parents or my Sony cyber shot that Mr. L got me for my birthday just before we went to Hawaii in October.

14. Q: Do you ever get tired

A: Yes, that`s why I have to use these ;) 15. Q: What is your favourite cooking show? A: David Rocco & Chuck Hughes - not sure if I just like to watch them or I like what they are cooking, or both;) 16. Q: What is your least favourite cooking show?

20. Q: How do you wow Mr.L with your heart, looks and being a momma?

A: I am Shawna, quirks, passions and frustrations…and I don’t hold them back from him. I do however hold his words close to my heart; when he speaks I truly listen. And I send him love notes often...in the for of a song, words or a photo.

21. Q: What would be your best advice for people going through marital problems? A: Do not compare, everyone deals with life & stress differently – don’t put what you perceive their relationship to be as what yours should be. Don’t question your spouse’s intentions; take what they do for you at face value. If you have an expectation, make it known – they are not God thus don’t know what you need. Respect & honour will take your relationship further than you thought. Communicate on every level, physically especially – don’t be afraid to make known your needs. Everyone wants to be needed – not what they are not doing, but what they could do. Do not dwell on what was not done, but what they did do.

22. Q: What do you take in your coffee? A: Typically just black, or a little cream – no sugar; I am already sweet enough ;)

23. Q: What is your favourite dish to cook?

A: Roast Beef and any dessert!

24. Q: What is your biggest fear and pet peeve?

A: Fear: Throwing up :: Peeve: People chewing out loud.

25. Q: When you are having a (feel blah with how I look day?) How do you handle the inner dialogue?

A: Honestly, I do not think about it. I do not give it a place in my head to beat me up and condemn myself for something that I am not. It is fruitless. I just don’t go there!

26. Q: What is the hardest thing you have ever done in your life?

A: Hold on to the promises the God has given to us.

27. Q: What is the most frequent thing you and your husband argue about?

A: I had to ask Mr. L about this one. I could not really figure out an answer. So here is what we came up with, we do not really argue per say but we do disagree on SO many things! We are definitely opposites, and so when we are having a disagreement and we cannot find a common ground. I usually just fold and pull my side down, not very often is it worth keeping the disagreement going. So we choose to agree to disagree.

28. Q: Is there a hobby you'd like to take up but just don't have the time for right now?

A: Absolutely --- Everything! I would love to try everything….well except maybe skiing. Other than that, I would love to do so many things! One of them in particular would be horse back riding.

29.Q: What is your favourite meal to make for dinner? [and feel free to share the recipe!!]

A: Roast Beast, as we call it. With all the trimmings, mashed potatoes, corn, asparagus, buns…ahhh, I think I am hungry now!

30.Q: What is your favourite drink from Starbucks?

A: Long pour Americano or a Frap in the summer…however they are not half as good as Moccachino’s fraps {remember those Nickie?}
