The 11 questions I was asked :

  1. Least favorite thing to do with your kids ? Bath time only because by the time it comes around I am already pretty tired. I am NOT a morning person so doing it then is just not an option. We do have fun though when it is a “themed” bath. I just haven’t planned one of those in a few months…oh convicted…I’ve got to get back on that =)
  2. When was the last time you did something for yourself ? I went shopping with just my mom last week. We bought outfits for Christmas and went to a SIT-DOWN restaurant. I haven’t had time with just mom in forever.  
  3. When is the last time you cleaned up the fridge ? A month ago
  4. Burgers or Pizza ? Burgers
  5. Best movie of 2015 ? So Here I Leave You. It is not a “clean” movie but it surprised me the most. I was not excepting to cry as much as I did when I saw it.  Star Wars is WAY up there too =)
  6. What are you most excited about for the new year ? We planned for full weeks off at a time this school year verses a few days here and there. I am excited to just relax more with the kids. (I kinda burned myself out this past year)
  7. Do you make new year resolutions ? Yes 
  8. What was your most favorite moment from 2015 ? Every June we go on a family road trip. This year we stayed semi-close and headed north towards Green Bay, WI. We stopped at an air museum and Caleb actually flew by himself (with the pilot) in a small airplane, we hiked a lot, and found a park that has carnival type rides permanently there and you can ride them for about a quarter each.
  9. What is the perfect time for you to get up in the morning ? I am not a morning person. So if I had just myself to get ready, I would say 9-10 am. But that is just a dream in my world, I aim for around 6-7.
  10. What is your go to dinner, when you are out of fresh ideas ? Tacos
  11. What’s your favorite thing to do with your kids ? Hiking or playing board games
