1. What's your favorite part about being a parent? Her reaction when I walk through the door, her kisses and hugs, her smiles and the sound of her laugh, tubbies, snuggling, knowing that love that my heart feels like it's going to burst out of my chest, comforting her, reading to her, taking walks, feeding her, okay ... let's just say that there is nothing that I don't love about being a parent. I even think her poop is adorable! :)

2. What's your least favorite part about being a parent?
The freedom to sleep and relax anytime I feel the need. I really can't complain though, we have been luckier than most. Isabella has been an amazing sleeper since day one. And she likes to sleep in on the weekends! What more could I ask for?

3. How many children do you have? Technically, 2. Isabella, and I adopted my Nephew 5 years ago .. he is 16.


4. How do you make time for yourself? What are some ways in which you relax? I'm sorry - I don't understand the question! Haha. Time for myself is usually a quick trip to Target or something. I work FT, so I do get "away" time, but I'd hardly consider it relaxing.



5. How often do you and DH (DB/DF) go out and enjoy each other's company without the children? Not often at all. Once a month, if that.

6. What kind of vehicle do you drive?

7. What type of shoes are on your feet right now? Black stilettos

8. What's the first thing that comes to your mind when I say, "dinner table"? Food

9. What's your favorite type of music? R & B, some hip hop, pop, alternative rock, 80's, 90's, I like just about everything but country.

10. Are your nails polished today? French manicure

11. What's your favorite room in the house? Isabella's nursery ... it's adorable :)

12. What's your favorite day of the week? Friday @ 5pm!

13. Tell me about a funny or embarrassing parenting experience. Nothing embarrrassing, yet!

14. Organic food or McDs for dinner? I don't eat organic, and McD's is only once in a great while type of thing.

15. Your dream come true? Giving birth to a happy, healthy, beautiful child :)
