I am so excited to have Kate from Call Me Kate joining in on my feature.
She is a great photographer, has two enchanting kids & has a very cute husband, too.
I am so glad that you are going to get the opportunity to meet her on my blog.

1. Favorite snack food:
Either fresh pears or Doritos depending on the juxtaposition of my diet and my motivation.

2. Favorite place you've ever visited:
That's a tough one because I love to travel
and I've been to some really amazing,
inspiring, fun places...
but really one of my favorite places to go is Grand Haven here in Michigan.
Lake Michigan beaches are breathtakingly beautiful 
and I love that it only takes me about a half hour to get to the beach.

3. Favorite movie:
Love Actually, Best in Show, Say Anything 

4. Favorite childhood memory:
I grew up on a farm and we went horseback riding on a daily basis.
Definitely a favorite childhood memory would be riding my horse by myself in the evenings 
and watching the sunset.

5. Favorite candle scent:
Lilac

6. Favorite way to travel:
Sail boat. Before we had kids my husband and I 
would take a sail boat around the Caribbean every spring.
I don't do well on planes, and I tend to get bored on road trips, 
but the water, now that's for me.

7. Favorite Starbucks drink :
I actually never go to Starbucks. 
I've been there maybe 3 times in my life.
I always go to little Mom and Pop coffee shops.
There's one in my town called Daily Brews and I love it.
Creaky wooden floors, live music, local art on the walls, it's cool. 
Oh and I love to get a Vanilla Latte with skim milk. 

8. All time favorite meal:
My mom's tortellini and mushroom casserole, hands down!

9. If you could be on a reality show which one would you choose?:
Wipeout! Have you seen that show?
It's hilarious!
I would love to be on that...
but I guess that's not really a reality show, it's more of a game show.
Does Project Runway count?
I'd love to be on that show because I think it'd be an amazing experience 
being in that intense setting and being pushed as an artist.

10. A fun fact about you:
On January 1, 2000 (I was 18 at the time) I moved across the county to Texas on a whim, 
by myself, with 1 months worth of pay in my pocket 
and what I could fit in my car.
It was an adventure!
The first room I rented was actually just a large pantry in a duplex 
and there was no heat in the whole place.
I got a job within a couple weeks 
and after a while was managing the office of a grocery store,
had my own apartment, put myself through a few semesters of community college 
and fell in love.
I ended up staying for 3 years. 
I learned so much about myself and what I'm capable of.
It was really a great time in my life!
Now I'm back in Michigan, 
married (not the TX guy) and have two kids.
I'm glad I got away on my own for awhile before I settled down...
I really needed sew some wild oats, ya know?

It's almost ridiculous all the things I'm scared of.

Wordless{ish} Wednesday

Well Zane has a little secret to share with all of you...

Photobucket
Doesn't he look absolutely thrilled?! ;)
Yes, it's true I have joined the many other pregnant blogging momma's out there!
We are beyond thrilled and can't wait to find out if we will be having a little brother or little sister.
Fingers crossed for a little brother ;)
Due to arrive November 2012.

That's why I have been MIA so much lately...
I have been very sick & have spent some time in the ER.
I am also starting my infusions today to prevent me from getting dehydrated like I did with Zane.
