We Want to Know....

Today I am participating in Mamarazzi's and Queso's Meme....We Want to Know.  Each week they ask five insightful questions and we get to learn a little something new about each other along the way.


1. What is the best advice someone has ever given you?
Hmm...I have been given lots of good advice by so many wonderful people in my life.  But I have to say my mom has told me:  Remember who you are, and teach that to your children:  A child of God.
2. What is your greatest accomplishment?  This is a no brainer for me.  My kids.  I have done lots of things that are great or cool.  But nothing will ever be so cool or great as my kids are.
3. Who do you admire? Hard! Hard! Hard!  It's not just one person but many for different reasons.  My mom for her perseverance, my sis for her humor, my BF Lorraine for strength, my BF Emmy for her sweet spirit.  I know there is more, and I know I could not pick one.
4. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be? Physically?  My nose.  I have a bump...I hate it.  If I had the means...I would get a nose job.  I would.  I am working on those last 13 pounds...12 now.  Yay me.  Other than that...I wish that I could put myself out there more...not be so afraid to try something new.  Not sure when that happened.  This is the girl who auditioned for a beer commercial.  She's buried in there somewhere! 
5. How do you want to be remembered? I want to be remembered as someone who loved, laughed, and enjoyed life.  Someone who was kind to others and helped to lift their burdens and give a little joy.  

And now it's your turn to play!

Isn't it crazy how, no matter what you've done in your life, it's so easy to pick out your kids as #1?

I'm good with my nose. I'd love my eyes to be 20/20.

Best advice? My dad said "the more you stir s(*! the more it stinks."

Best thing I've ever done? Still working on the kids. Check back with me in 20 years. :)

I'm way tamer than I used to be too, but I'm trying to get a little of that fire back, bit by bit.

People who don't have bumps on their noses like them. Just sayin'.
