Chore I'd rather not do ... Laundry! The never.ending.battle!!!
Dog's name ... Sadie Girl, our Siberian Husky. She is 8 years old and has been a part of our family since she was just 7 weeks old.
Essential start to my day ... checking my emails! My day never starts off right unless I have had a couple minutes to check my inbox. Some people need coffee, I need a laptop.
Favorite color ... purple! But you already knew that!
Gold or Silver ... definitely a silver kinda girl!
Height ... 5 foot, 6 inches
Ice Cream ... So not a fan! I do not like cold things. No snow, no ice (no, not even in my drinks), I am warm-blooded and do not enjoy being cold. But, one flavor I will enjoy is Birthday Cake flavored ice cream. Add some maraschino cherries, and we have a dessert! Yum.
Job title ... that just about sums it up.
Kiddos ... my 2 boys, Maddox (age 6) and Sean (age 3) - definitely not trying for another one! I know my limits, people!
Lemonade or Iced Tea ... Southern Sweet Tea, oh-so-yummy!!
Origination of family ... If I must be honest, I am French, Italian, German, Irish, English. But I only claim my Italian roots.
Personal Life Motto ... "It is what it is." I have been reminded over and over again in my life that I cannot control how people are going to feel about me. I can only focus on how I treat others and how I maintain my relationships. I cannot please everyone, nor will I change who I am to appease others. If someone can't love me for who I am and support me and the choices I make in my life, then that is their loss. I try to be a good person each and every day. I love hard and I value those who are closest to me. There is no room for jealousy or negative attitudes. I will not worry about those who judge me. It is what it is ...
Quote from my favorite movie ... "Nobody puts Baby in a corner!" - Johnny Castle, Dirty Dancing
Righty or Lefty ... right-handed
Song in my head ... Tik Tok by Ke$ha
Time I wake up ... whenever the boys come running in! Usually between 8:30am and 9am. If it were up to me, I'd say 10:30 am would be a fabulous time to get up every day! Ha!
Underwear ... Never leave home without it!
Vacations ... anywhere warm!! Las Vegas is my absolute fave getaway to unwind and party for a few days, and Maui's tropical island life is always calling me back!
Why I run late ... Not gonna lie. I am a procrastinator when it comes to leaving the house. Whether it be a few more minutes of a TV show, one last blog to read, or a phone call - I'll leave the house in a mad dash. My poor boys, who can't even read a clock yet, are often spinning circles while I am running about the house looking for shoes and jackets and my keys ... aaaahhh!!!
X's or O's ... I am definitely more partial to hugs, but my hubby's kisses make me melt!
Yummy foods I make ... this lady here with my youngest is my sweet little Italian gram who has taught me all my cooking skills. She doesn't use recipe cards or measuring cups when she cooks, and the meals she prepares are amazing! I learned from the best!
Zoo animal I adore ... giraffes! They aren't very cuddly and soft looking, but these creatures are beautiful!
