  • Where do you live?

            At the happiest place on earth! Ok not really but pretty darn close.

              I work for a small office for a non profit organization.

              PC

    What was your favorite book when you were in middle school?

               Middle School was my Sherlock phase. 

    What is something you love about where you currently live?

               The neighborhood I live in is in the original part of the city and every house is different and shows the stages of growth in the city. There is a part of the side walk on one street that has the name of the street pressed into the cement. Most of those have been paved over everywhere else or dug up and tossed. Little flashes of history make me smile.

    What are your grandmas & grandpas names?

               On my dad's side Roberta and Kennieth but everyone calls him Alan.

               On my mom's side IW and Veda but to be honest I had to check on that as they died when I was young and my mom never talks about them. 

    What is a splurge that you have your eye on now?

              Oh I would love to get a pair of comfortable jeans. I don't have a pair that is suitable to wear in public or is the correct size. 

    Who was your favorite teen heartthrob?

    I was never a big teen heartthrob person, but as a teen I was googly eyed over Neil Patrick Harris and Wil Wheaton.

    I cannot recommend this enough. I work FT and am having a tough pregnancy, and my husband works and goes to school FT. We live in a decent size apt, but cleaning is just not a priority right now. We agreed to cut back on a few things to make biweekly cleanings a possibility. Best. Decision. Ever.
