1. Do you know what your REAL hair color is?
Why yes I do - in fact, my real hair color is a grayish shade of blond, that I often refer to as "Mousy". This is why I continue to color my hair!
2. Do you plan ahead for summer, or fly by the seat of your pants?
We often plan a "vacation" at a cabin up north for a weekend mid-summer, but beyond that we really take it as it comes. I like to get the kids out and doing something a couple of days per week in order to keep the peace and sanity, though! We find lots of things to do whether it be going to the beach, a park, a museum or just having friends over for a baseball game in our front yard. Summers at our house are the best!
3. What is your favorite meal to cook?
Spaghetti with my homemade sauce, garlic bread and a salad. It's an easy meal, but it's one that I always get compliments on because the sauce is just phenomenal! It's one of my favorites to make when we have people over.
4. Do you get offended by not receiving thank yous?
You know, I know that I shouldn't, but I have to admit that I really do. I think it's extremely tacky to receive a gift at a wedding or shower or something along those lines and then not acknowledge it at all. I would truly just be fine with a "thank you for your gift" card with no further words. Maybe it's because I'm just an old soul (as many people have told me) but I really appreciate the old-fashioned necessity of a Thank-You card!
5. How did you meet your best friend?
I was managing a physical therapy clinic and he was a patient there. We later went on to date and eventually got married. It was amazing! To this day, my Monte continues to be my best friend - and I just LOVE that!
I met my other best friend on the day that I was born, but I'm fairly certain that I annoyed her for the first 20 years of my life! My sister and I are very close now, we talk almost every single day and I don't know where I would be or what I would do without her. She is simply wonderful!
