20 Questions!!!!

Okay y'all so the sweet Jesslyn over at Jesslyn Amber; Life of a College Girl blog tagged me as one of her four "tagees" in this 20 questions! I'm so excited to answer so of these as her answers were so sweet! At the end I get to tag four more people to take the 20 question challenge! Thanks Jesslyn!

Here are the rules:
1. The tagged person must write their answers on their blog and replace any question they dislike with a new question formulated by themselves.
{I didn't replace any though!}

2. Tag 4 people to do this and the tag-ee must state who tagged them.

Here's the questions:
1. If you have pets, do you see them as merely animals or are they members of your family?
Unfortunately, I don't have any pets. I was crazy over them as a child. I was one of those kids who took in every stray you could imagine. Even when my parents said NO! I would sneak out and feed them or love them :) But with a two year old who is equivalent to 5 two year olds, having a puppy is just not possible right now...plus I'm kinda scared he would torture it!

2. If you could have a dream come true, what would it be?
Well my dream of finding and marrying a great man and having (1) wonderful happy/healthy child has been reached. But I guess my dream would be to grow my business into a big booming successful photog business and hopefully make wise financial decisions in the future about home purchases and things. The economy stinks so we're trying to think smart!

3. What would you do with a billion dollars?
First things first, I would pay off every bill/debt we had. Then I would set up Dillon a savings account and put some in stocks/bonds/CDs. Then I would give some to our family who have been there for us and supported us through the years and maybe get a few "toys" for Jon, Dillon and I! :D

4. What helps to pull you out of a bad mood?
My baby boy (Dillon), my husband...they're my support and my rock(s). My parents..they're always there for me as well as my sisters. My friends and even this blog community!

5. What is your bedtime routine?
Same as Jesslyn, I pick up my living room and kitchen then lock the doors and check that everything is unplugged/turned off that should be. I then go make my last potty run and go hop in bed for the night!

6. What activities did you do in High School? If you could go back, would you do the same stuff or something different?
I played basketball for 3 years but decided not to try out for the high school team because they were only worried about winning...nothing "fun" was involved. I really didn't participate in extra curricular things in high school as much as I did in elementary and middle school..which I wish I would have. I was on the Academic Team in Elementary School and in Honors Club and Treasurer one year. I was in all Honors and Advanced Placement Classes in high school..

7. What kind of books do you read?
Sadly none anymore. I had read almost all the Harry Potter books when they first became popular, also LOVE the Lion, Witch and Wardrobe books. They used to have accelerated reading in school where you read a book and took a 20 question quiz at the end and what you scored gave you so many "points" to buy cool things with. I used to read ALL THE TIME for that purpose. But I just can't find the time now.

8. How do you see yourself in 10 years?
In 10 years I'll be 32..and I hope that we are in "house"-house with a nicely landscaped yard and some pretty decent sized trees since we have none currently...Also hope that most of our "small" bills are paid offand that we have maybe one or two little ones running around ;)

9. What’s your fear?
My biggest fear is being alone. I couldn't imagine living alone or being by myself daily. I love the company and companionship I find in others and need it to be happy! My husband means the world to me and we just click so well...I often find myself reading his mind and finishing his sentences..and if I didn't have my son I'd just loose it.

10. Would you give up all junk food for the rest of your life for the opportunity to see outer space?
If someone could MAKE me live without junk food I'd be happy because I could afford to loose a few lbs!

11. What’s the first thing you do when you wake up?
If it's a work day for my husband I get up with him at 5:45, go in the kitchen and put his sandwich, ice pack and drink in his lunch bucket and his mining light in his clothes bag and then lay on the couch until he gets in here and gets his uniform on. After he leaves I either go back to bed until my other main man wakes up or just stay up and catch up on blogging or write out lists and things! If it's a weekend or something, I wake up with my little guy and get him a sippy and breakfast then sit around until I wake up!

12. If you could change one thing about your significant other, what would it be?
He has done so much changing for me that I really couldn't ask for a better 'mate' in life. He knows my wants and needs and spoils me with love...He's always on my side no matter what or who and I love him for it. But I agree with Jesslyn's answer in that I wish he would let me photograph him more! If he sees me pointing my camera at him he flips! lol

13. If you could pick a new name for yourself, what would it be?
A lot of people would say...well, you've gotta wish there was another name you could've been named!? And actually no, there's not. Natalie isn't that common of a name and Nicole was after my sister Brandi Nicole whom I love and don't mind sharing that name ;)

14. If you had to choose between six months of sun or six months of rain, what would you choose?
Six months of SUN, please! (<---AGREE!) 15. If you could only eat one thing for the next 6 months, what would it be?
Mac n Cheese or Bacon :D

16. What is the thing you enjoy about blogging the most?
Meeting new people constantly. The kindness they exude, the sharing, the complete ability to be open without judgment! I love learning from others and learning new things and just builing a new friendship what seems like everyday!

17. Do you prefer salty or sweet foods?
Definitely Salty!

18. What items are in your purse right now?
Probably mostly trash! HAHA. I throw gum and candy wrappers in there..receipts galore, lots of change. Keys, phone, wallet..etc.

19. Name three things on your bucket list.
1. Go to Ireland (why? I hear its really green and lots of rolling hills there!)
2. Build a successful business.
3. Become debt free!!!

20. What do you watch on television that you know you shouldn’t?
I don't watch TV. Honest to goodness. The ONLY thing I watch is "That 70's Show" (BAHAHAHA) bc I DVR it and right now American Idol...which is Wednesday and Thursday nights right now. So no..not really!

I totally agree about the 6 months of rain/sun... I am ready to get outside and to get some sun so that I don't look like a pale GHOST anymore! :)
