Me Monday's v.2

I have seen this 20 questions on quite a few blogs recently, so I decided to follow along :)
Enjoy learning more about me :)

1} If you have pets, do you see them as merely animals or are they members of your family?
I am not the biggest animal person. Tony would love to have dogs right now if we could...and I am more than positive he would treat them like members of our family.

2. If you could have a dream come true, what would it be?  
Have my brother back

3. What would you do with a billion dollars?
 No clue. I would buy us a house and mom a house. Travel for sure. But I know one thing is I wouldn't hoard the money. I would share it. I would invest it. I would use it for our children to go to college.

4. What helps to pull you out of a bad mood?  
Hanging out with Tony and/or Aarika. They both make me laugh.

5. What is your bedtime routine? 
Wash face, brush teeth, put hair in pony, get uniform out for SB (if I have to get up before Tony so I don't wake him), set alarm, and cuddle with Tony.

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 involved in Yearbook staff and Student Council. I totally enjoyed what I did, but I wish I was as competitive and athletic back then, as I am now. Sports, I think, are an important thing for young people to be a part of.

7. What kind of books do you read? 
Not much of a reader. It just takes me a long time to really get into a book. But once I do, I read so quickly, literally finish books in like two days. I love Nicholas Sparks, but all his books are beginning to seem so similar. I got the Megan McCain book because I am totally interested in it, but I havent got past the Intro...LOL
Any recommendations?!?!

8. How do you see yourself in 10 years?
To finally be have my BSN and working in the NICU or PICU. Also to have our four three munchkins running around a house we own :)

9. What’s your fear?
To not be able to have children.
To lose a child, as I have seen the pain it brings a family.
To lose my husband .

10. Would you give up all junk food for the rest of your life for the opportunity to see outer space?
OMG hell no!!! Seeing outer space does not excite me one single bit. I am perfectly fine seeing it through photos from NASA :) I would never give up ice cream.

11. What’s the first thing you do when you wake up?
Give Tony some lovin'.
If I open at SB, I get dressed in literally 5 minutes and head out.
If I don't work in the AM, I get up, run, eat breakfast, then wait about 30 minutes before I complete my work out.
12. If you could change one thing about your significant other, what would it be?  
Nothing because he is the person I chose to spend my life with, so why would I want to change him. We all have faults...but that is life.

13. If you could pick a new name for yourself, what would it be?  
I love my middle name, Alexis. I think it is a beautiful name. Very strong and sexy :)
I am trying to convince myself to go by that, but it would hard to make everyone change what they call me.
My dad and Tony call me Alexis.

14. If you had to choose between six months of sun or six months of rain, what would you choose?   
There is no way in HELL I would choose 6 months of rain!!! I am a total SUN girl!! I love the sun. I would never give it up. I wish I could work outside to be in the sun all.the.time!!

15. If you could only eat one thing for the next 6 months, what would it be?
The Queensland Salad from Outback. Every time I get it, it is so refreshing and delicious!!
It has veggies and protein (from chicken) and the most amazing ranch dressing :)

16. What is the thing you enjoy about blogging the most?I enjoy writing. I have never been much of a writer. I used to make my brother write my English papers ;)
I love writing whatever is on my mind. Meeting/Reading other girls going through same things in life. Meeting people through blogging. It is kind of like having tons of penpals...I love it!!

17. Do you prefer salty or sweet foods?  
I love salt and sweet together :)
Totally random...I love eating salty popcorn and drinking sweet lemonade. Seriously, I have to have those two is so yummy!!

18. What items are in your purse right now?   
A million pens, wallet, chapstick, lip gloss, hair ties, gum, tissues, bandaids, tampons, floss

19. Name three things on your bucket list.
Travel to Ireland
Become a mommy
Own a home

20. What do you watch on television that you know you shouldn’t?
I am not a huge TV person anymore. Tony and I rarely have the TV on actually. And when we do it's HGTV, Two and a Half Men, Friends, True Blood or Sons of Anarchy. That's it.

My biggest fear is not being able to have kids, too! Glad to know I'm not alone. It was fun reading more about you, girl!

Eric's Mommy said...

#2 totally made me cry.
#17 I am the exact same way I love sweet and salty foods!

David and Elizabeth said...

Ahhh 2 and a Half Men...Sucks me in everytime!

Kate said...

Ugh, I fear not being able to have children too. And I know so many people who've miscarried, so that makes in more in-your-face. It's scary stuff! One day you'll have to get Tony a dog -- no home is complete without a pet in it :)
