Tag You're It!

Becky over at House of Sykes tagged me in a 20 questions thing, so here goes!

Rule #1: The tagged person must write their answers on their blog and replace any question they dislike with a new question formulated by themselves.
Rule #2: Tag 4 people to do this quiz. The tag-ee must state who tagged them.

1. If you have pets, do you see them as merely animals or are they members of your family?
They're most definitely members of our family.  But I would be lying if I said they were as high in the chain as they were before Peyton came along.  They're still my 1st babies though and I love them to pieces.

2. If you could have a dream come true, what would it be?
See #3!!

3. What would you do with a billion dollars?
Pay off every loan and bill we have.  Probably build our dream house  (although we love where we are now).  We'd quit our jobs, go on lots of family vacations, most definitely build a place on Ocracoke Island.  Put money away for Peyton's future.  Give a chunk to our church and our families for everything they have done for us.  Who knows what else!

4. What helps to pull you out of a bad mood?
SHOPPING!  I love it, I'm addicted, it makes me happy, end of story.

5. What is your bedtime routine?
I go ahead and take a shower and put my pj's on after I put Peyton down.  I usually head back to the bedroom around 9:30ish, brush my teeth, get in the bed and watch TV for a while. 

6. What activities did you do in High School? If you could go back, would you do the same stuff or something different?
I was in Chorus and Key Club (aka the club you join to get out of class), those were the only school related things I did after getting injured my freshman year and having to stop dance, cheer leading, and gymnastics.  I was super involved in my church and was part of pretty much everything that went on there.  I partied and hung out on the weekends, that's about it.  I'm not sure what I'd do if I could go back, I have no desire to go back to high school. 

7. What kind of books do you read?
Read, that's funny.  I'm horrible when it comes to reading, I just don't ever do it.  I usually pick a few books to read during the summer so I have beach/pool/lake reading and those are usually some type of sci-fy, thriller, mystery books.  Other than that I did read all of the Twilight books :)

8. How do you see yourself in 10 years?
Way too close to 40 yrs old with a 10 year old...oh wow that's crazy.  Maybe with another kid, I haven't made that decision yet.  I assume we'll be living in the same house since we have no desire to move.  I hope to be possibly working part time and if not I just hope to have a job that I'm still enjoying and be financially stable. 

9. What’s your fear?
Anything at all happening to my child or my husband, they're my world and I couldn't take it! 

10. Would you give up all junk food for the rest of your life for the opportunity to see outer space?
Negative, couldn't do it. 

11. What’s the first thing you do when you wake up?
The first thing I do when I wake up is brush my teeth because I can't stand some morning breath!  Then I wash my face, do my hair and make up, and get dressed.

12. If you could change one thing about your significant other, what would it be?
Oh my goodness it would definitely be his messiness.  He is THE messiest guy I've ever met, it's almost impossible to keep the house neat for longer than 30 mins.  It drives me crazy!

13. If you could pick a new name for yourself, what would it be?
I'm pretty fond of my name.  I love the name Peyton (obviously), but that's why I picked it for my daughter. 

14. If you had to choose between six months of sun or six months of rain, what would you choose?
Sun, hello?!

15. If you could only eat one thing for the next 6 months, what would it be?
I'm pretty sure there isn't 1 single thing that I could stand eating for 6 months straight without vomiting. 

16. What is the thing you enjoy about blogging the most?
I just like using it as an outlet, a way to vent about things, and a way to update people on my little family as Peyton grows and changes. 

17. Do you prefer salty or sweet foods?
Sweet, sweet, and more sweet please.

18. What items are in your purse right now?
Wallet. Keys. Pens. Lip gloss. Check book. Sunglasses. Cell phone. Chapstick. Ibuprofen.  Hair ties.  Floss.  Wet naps.

ADD #19.  Who's your role model?
Definitely my Mom.  She's been an amazing Mom and friend my entire life.  I pray I can be at least 1/2 the Mom to Peyton that she has been to me.

20. What do you watch on television that you know you shouldn’t?
Pretty much every single reality show...most of the Real Housewives shows, Teen Mom, 16 and Pregnant, Sister Wives, Bethenny Ever After.  I'm addicted.  It's a problem.
