  • Wedding: June 2010

Wedding date?    July 9, 2010 (I’ve been around here for a while!)

Favorite thing about being married? Besides just being with DH, I think it’s finally having the outside world see our relationship as legitimate as we’d thought it was for  a long time.

Least favorite thing about being married? Not being able to starfish sleep in bed by myself

Best wedding gift received? uh, my fruit basket and super expensive bedding that is like sleeping on a cloud.

Ever have any surgery? If so, what? not really, just wisdom teeth pulled, but they were impacted to I was put under

If you won the lottery, what would you do first? buy a house!

If you could go anywhere in the world where would it be? I’ve been dying to go to Egypt for years.  I’m hoping it becomes safe again in the near future.

If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be? garlic toast – total carb addict.

City, beach or country?  Country, I love the slower paced lifestyle.

When’s the last time you cried? Uh, I probably got misty over some stupid commercial or something in the last couple weeks, but full on crying, not for a long time.

What’s your favorite shampoo and soap? I use sheer blonde shampoo and am allergic to soap/body wash.

Have you ever done anything illegal? I could tell you but then I’d have to kill you.

Do you talk in your sleep? Yes, and walk around – usually getting “ready for work” or strangely enough, sweeping.

Can you sing? I sound pretty darn good in the shower.  I was apparently good enough for leads in my highschool musical, but that may have been a “limited depth of talent” situation πŸ™‚

Favorite color? blue!
