Answer Me This - IT IS BACK!!!

I'm SO glad Kendra is hosting AMT this summer.... 

1. Any big plans for the summer?

The girls and I are headed to le beach for a few days later this summer (we are praying for SUNNY skies as last year's beach trip involved lots of rain). Fortunately Grammy and Grandpa Joe enjoy going to the beach and can take the time off work to do so (whereas Papa does not like the beach and canNOT take off work at all during the summer - pool biz & 60+ hours outside in the heat working each week for a couple months = no likey the beach). I do have big ideas for a family trip now I just have to get a certain Papa on board.

(this is actually from 2 years ago because I never uploaded pics from last year : ) 

Other than that, I have a few quickie work trips before Kindergarten (gasp!) starts and I get too pregnant to travel : ) 

2. What is the strangest thing you believed as a child?

I don't know if it was necessarily a belief but how about a theory... And I'll only divulge because Uncle Kev thinks this is hilarious. At some point around the age of 3-4 - maybe 5, I needed to test my theory regarding the toilet. So what do I do, step right up into the toilet bowl and try (multiple times) to flush myself down the toilet. 


I have no idea. I cannot remember. But if any of the girls were to follow in my theorizing/hypothesizing footsteps I would be proud. Though we have a boring septic tank they'd flush into - I was trying to flush myself into a city's water lines : ) 

3. What is your favorite amusement park ride? (can be a specific one at a specific park or just a type of ride)

I cannot even remember the last time I went on an amusement park ride... Okay it was actually probably my senior year of high school during our physics trip to Busch Gardens. I rode some roller coasters I cannot say I'd get on now. Then we took the girls to the State Fair last year and I can tell you riding the (not-so) kiddie ferris wheel with a 4 yr old and 2 yr old was not a terribly pleasant experience for me because waiting for everyone to get on and off was a bit long for the girls. 

4. What's on your summer reading list?

Errrr... I really don't read enough but here's what remains on my nightstand...

Nani let me borrow Unglued and I probably should give it back to her so she can actually finish it and THEN she can let me borrow it. 

The Divine Ladder of Ascent has been on the nightstand since Lent and I haven't made it through the Introduction (told you I don't read enough) 

Also, we are listening to the Chronicles of Narnia on our weekly drives to church. We started with The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe and we are about to finish Prince Caspian. So I guess we are listening to the books in publication order so Voyage of the Dawn Treader is next up. 

And, I don't have the book yet but I'll be reading a Bible Study on 1 John for a neighborhood moms Bible Study which I am looking forward to. 

5. Have you ever fallen asleep in public?

Highly likely during college... Probably sophomore year when I was taking analytical and organic chemistry : ) 

6.  What is your favorite smell?

Brand new baby... There is nothing like it and I'll be smelling a brand new one later this year!

  1. Hah! That's hilarious. I keep thinking of the Mr. Rogers song about how you could never go down the drain.

    1. Well apparently I didn't get that message or I differentiated between the pipes and a drain!

  2. That toilet thing would make an AWESOME children's book series! It could be the next Magic Tree House (which you'll soon find ou zbout, if you have a little one entering Kindergarten). Hmmm...Busch Gardens and the state're not in Florida, are you? (I know there are lots of Busch Gardens parks, both it and the state fair are big around these parts).

    1. Well when you make millions writing about it then don't forget your inspiration!

      I have not heard of Magic Tree House - only Magic School Bus.

      We are in NC. There is a Busch Gardens about 2 hours from us in VA. My husband is SUPER into the fair. I am not. I think it is a petri dish of germs but went last year to dispense excessive amounts of hand sanitizer. I did have fun and the food is one of a kind!

  3. I'm with you for the fair, I love the idea of my children getting to have fun on rides, but waiting in line with multiple little kids... not so much fun!

    Toilet thing = priceless!

    1. Yeah no Fast Pass or anything like that at the fair!!!
