1. Which is worse: speaking to a large crowd or working under an impossible deadline? Speaking to a large crowd. I get terrible stage fright, and it's not pretty. I quess it's not as bad as it could be, but I start to ramble and say "like" and "um" a lot :) Oh, and my throat starts to feel like it's closing up. Yeah, not a pretty sight! :)

2. Could you work with your best friend? I could if it were a fun job doing something that we both enjoyed! I used to be a flight attendant, and I got a trip with one of my close friends and it was a blast! We would act so goofy in the galley together and we just both really enjoyed being on the plane together. It made us more at ease with everything we did. Boy, I miss those days sometimes :)

3. Do you eat seafood? Oh yeah!! My favorites are crab, any kind, and LOBSTER!! Oh my , it's time to have some seafood ! I need to schedule that in!

4. What is the worst thing you have ever eaten? Um, I would definitely have to say escargot (snails)! Eghhhh! I tried it on a date, he insisted. It felt like a slug in my mouth, and just kind of plopped around and then slid down my throat! I didn't know what to do, I just knew I didn't want to chew it! At that point I should've known it wasn't going to work out :)

5. Which would make you feel more appreciated by your DH / SO: bringing home flowers, doing a chore without being asked, or asking you on a “date”? For me, definitely doing a chore without being asked! He knows that too, and knows it makes me very happy! You'd think he'd have the house spotless! ;)

6. What is something fun you are going to do today? Bake cookies for dessert and make popcorn for my children for movie night tonight! I love that they look forward to movie night, and they have a good time! They get their blankets and pillows and plop 'em in front of the t.v., and that's it! They don't move from that spot till it's over. I just love serving them the popcorn and watching the looks on their faces when they know it's coming!

7. What qualities you look for in a friend … in other words, what causes you to really “click” with someone? #1, they have to be REAL!! I love it when other moms don't care to say, "my kids are driving me crazy!" Or, "I need a break, don't you?" There's nothing worse than another mom smiling at you knowing that their smile is fake :( I also look for kindness, compassion, a sense of humor, and similar interests.

Want to play, join in here!

When we lived in Germany, my husband offered my oldest son, who was about 10 at the time, 20 euro to eat escargot. They got a tiny order to share and Sean actually ate it! Well, I think he let it slide down his throat! LOL! Now he won't eat anything that looks or tastes like the buttery, creamy sauce the snail was in.

I shudder to even think about it...

Bless you!
