My Answers to Chanelle’s Questions

1. What was the last book you read?

There’s More To Life Than This – Theresa Caputo

2. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you choose and why?

I have only ever lived in The Pacific Northwest of the United States and LOVE it here….so perhaps my answer would be different if I had lived elsewhere at points in my life to compare….but honestly I have no plans to move as my family and I very much love living here.  The lush beauty that is abundant for outdoor activities and the scenic views so breathtaking…it is an amazing place to call home.  I also love that we have all four seasons of weather here.  Spring rain, sun and blooming flowers and trees.   Summer hot and vibrant with crisp clean air.  Fall with its cool, but comfortable temps and gorgeous colors.  Winter typically mild with a dash of a snow day for fun here and there!  In every direction it is only a few hours to get to the mountains, the beach, the desert and valleys…yet large metropolitan areas are always close by.

3. Favorite item of clothing?

Camis.  I love to layer.

4. What motivates you? (Blogging, daily life etc.)

To get the most from this life that I have been blessed with.  Making the most of each day that I wake up and my feet hit the floor.  Growing as a person from each lesson that comes my way whether it is pleasant or not.  My children are a huge motivator to be a strong and positive force in their lives.  Striving constantly to prepare them for their next stages of their lives.  They are my JOY.

5. A fact about your personality?

I have a pretty great sense of humor.  I mean, I am so funny that you won’t forget to laugh…ever.  It’s okay to admit it.  I mean I can be your favorite funny person….if you’re gonna twist my arm.

6. Your idea of a perfect date?

Any 1-on-1 time with my hub.  Seriously, it could be anything from grabbing a bite at Subway and getting groceries to Ziplining in the forest.  That’s how we roll. :)

7. What did your last text message say?

I know lol

8. Three of your holy grail beauty products?

  • No. 7 Protect & Perfect Foundation
  • Mary Kay Ultimate Mascara
  • BioSilk Silk Therapy for my hair

9. What nail color are you wearing right now?

I don’t recall the name as it was just a color I picked at the nail salon.  It is a light frosty pink shellac polish.

10. Do you have a favorite smell?

Waffle cones…especially at Disneyland on Main Street.

11. Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?

I am terrible at these predictions as it always ends up different than what I think it will be.  I know for sure I will be enjoying life as it comes and hopefully writing a very successful blog at Cuppa Sunshine & Sugar.
