11 Things – Part Two
1. What products do you have in your shower?
I’m not much of a product person so it’s just the basics. The only thing I’m super picky about is my Pears body soap.
2. What one frivolous (not essential to survival) thing would you want with you on a desert island?
Definitely my Kindle full of books
3. What’s your favorite throw-together meal?
Chocolate chip pancakes or pumpkin chocolate chip waffles – breakfast, lunch or dinner.
4. If you could only visit one restaurant for the rest of your life, which would it be?
Our local restaurant called the Friendly Toast has hearty, home-made, diner-like food in a funky atmosphere. I’m a picky eater and there are several things on their menu I’d look forward to, including the breakfast burrito.
5. What color is your favorite pair of shoes?
My mid-life crisis come early boots with 4 inch ridiculously high heels that I can’t walk in but make me look fabulous are black.
6. Dogs or cats? (Or, “other”?)
The fake fish in our toy aquarium that doesn’t eat, poop, smell, or die.
7. Describe a moment, however brief, in the past week when you felt joyful.
Waking up to discover that my husband bought me a dozen red roses to celebrate 28 days before my birthday. Can’t help but think my actual birthday will be pretty amazing.
8. You have an entire day off from responsibilities, but you can’t spend any money. What does your free dream day look like?
Easy peasy….ocean, book, beach chair, alone.
9. If you had $1 million to give to charity, what cause would you give it to?
I’d buy wheelchair accessible vans for people who need them. There’s no help if you can’t afford one and the cost is exorbitant. I know the need for independent mobility and the risk of isolation too well. We were blessed to have a community that raised $40k for our van and I would love to pay that forward.
10. What is a picture that you wish you had? Either a moment in time that wasn’t captured, a picture of a person passed or a place in the world? Anything you would like an image of.
Another easy one. I have the most beautiful pictures of my second son’s birth; pushing, crowning, the works. I was more or less pushing as I walked into the hospital with my first son. So, needless to say, the camera and birthing bag got left in the car. I wish I had his birthing pictures.
11. Would you rather have a blanket made of the softest material imaginable with a stone bed or a rough, scratchy blanket with a gloriously soft and cushy bed?
This question makes so many of my sensory nerves fire that I just have to say, my comfy bed with my heavy quilt.
And these are the bloggers I tagged to answer my questions. Check them out because blog love is the point here.
