This is another bloggy thing to do, found on Tonja's Gatherings. I've seen it on a few other sites as well and thought I'd play along.
1. If you could build a house anywhere, where would it be?
I really like the Orem area. However, given that we're smack dab on top of an earthquake fault, I'd have to give that some serious thought.
2.What is your favorite article of clothing?
I like sweatpants to hang around the house in. But if I'm going somewhere and want to look nice, either my blue shoes or my brown shoes. Do shoes count as clothes?
3. Last C.D. you bought?
Josh Groban's "Closer."
4. Where is your favorite place to be?
At home with my family when everyone is cooperating and we're just spending time together.
5. Least favorite place to be?
At home with my family when everyone is grumpy and the house is a mess and we're all fighting.
6. Are you strongest in mind or body?
My mind is by far stronger.
7. What time do you wake up?
Around nine a.m. This is because I'm usually up until around 3 a.m. But why am I making excuses? I can be in bed 'til nine if I want!
8. Favorite kitchen appliance?
9. What instrument would you like to play?
I have always wanted to learn how to play the piano.
10. Favorite color?
Now, this is going to sound ultra-girly of me, but I've always enjoyed various shades of pink. Burgundy, mauve, maroon, baby pink -- you name it. Then I ended up marrying a man by the last name of Pinkston. This wasn't intentional -- I actually liked him before I knew his last name. But now when I tell people I like pink, they think that's so corny. And, to make it worse, all the styles of house I really like are pink stone. I can just see it now: "George, take this flyer over the Pinkston's house. Theirs is the pink stone house."
I also like forest green, sage green, navy, country blue, gray, lavender, and plum.
11. Sports car or SUV?
Neither! Give me practicality, any day.
12. Favorite children's book?
"But Not the Hippopotamus" by Sandra Boynton.
13. Favorite season?
I love spring and I love fall. I hate being too hot and I hate being forced to wear a jacket.
14. Least favorite chore?
Taking out the trash and helping my children clean their rooms, which is essentially also taking out the trash.
15. Favorite day?
Monday. And I'm not teasing. On Sunday, I make my goals and think about what I need to accomplish, and by the time Monday morning hits, I'm raring to go.
16. Favorite food?
I really like fast food Mexican, and I'm quite partial to the new Wendy's chicken bacon swiss that they are offering right now. But I like it without the sauce. Let's see -- pizza, of course, and I really do enjoy chocolate.
17. Favorite drink?
I like water (no, I really do) and I like cream soda.
18. Favorite word?
That changes. Right now it's "Mama." My two-year-old has been calling me, and everyone else, "Daddy" for a really long time and he just started calling me "Mama." It's music to my ears.
19. Favorite inspirational book?
Oh, wow. That's a hard one. Let's say "The Cedar Post" by Rose.
20. Who would you like to play you in the movie of your life?
