Getting to Know You - Q&A Session

Oh Eva....My dear friend Eva tagged me in a Q&A session to bring me out of my blogging funk.  Thanks Lady!!

1. What was your inspiration to first start blogging?

I started blogging when I was pregnant because Stephen and I both have lots of family and friends that we don't see all of the time.  It was our way of sharing this experience with them.

2. If there was a fire in your house, and you only had time to grab 4 things (excluding your family), what would they be?

Well Stephen is a volunteer firefighter so I hope that if my house catches on fire he can take care of it.

Since I too count pets as family, Morgan is a given.  So I would grab -
* the handkerchief that was my Grandmothers
* our wedding album
* our external hard drive with all of Hanna's photos since the day she was born
* at this stage in Hanna's life - her woobie

3. If income was not a factor, what would be your dream job?

Sometimes I think it would be fun to be an ultrasound tech.  I don't know that I have a dream job per see...

4. If money was no object, what would be the next house or decor project that you would tackle be and describe.

My house project would be a beach house with a wrap around porch.  I want a porch that I can sit in a big wooden rocking chair at night while enjoying "Mommy juice."

5. Name one place you've always dreamed of traveling to.

This one is easy. Australia.


Tagees-

a) Post your answer to the 5 questions on your blog.

b) Ask 5 questions (can be your own or some repeats).

c) Tag a few other bloggers.

d) After you post your answers, come back and comment with a link to your post.

Ew germs!!

I wouldn’t say I am a germ-a-phobe. I am close though.

I try not to get crazy about things but sometimes all Stephen can do is laugh.

I have to re-wash clean containers that people so kindly wash before they return.
I have to clean the bathroom following a gathering at our home.
Hand me downs from people I know are ok. Items obtained via Craigslist, FreeCycle or yard sales bother me. I will only accept/purchase items that can be cleaned and clothes are an absolute no.

There was an article the other day about things you should absolutely not buy new. Furniture was on the list. I can’t even imagine bringing someone else’s used couch into my home. Granted we have a sofa set from my in-laws in my home but that’s different.

The local radio station was discussing this on my way into work the other day. They made fun of the article, joking about things such as vibrators that you shouldn’t buy used. It gave me the chills. Ew!!

What will you not buy used?
