4. I have anxiety issues in big cities, too overwhelming for me
5. I love Stephen King and all things horror
7. I like to watch House Hunters solely to make fun of the stupid jerk buyers (ala "this carpet is terrible, we could never live here" or "I can picture myself cooking in this kitchen" REALLY, genius?? cuz most people swim in their kitchen.)
8. I live my life by my Hello Kitty engagement calendar {thanks, cat}

10. My favorite children's book is Strega Nona (because I love pasta THAT MUCH)

Answers to my 11 Questions (asked by Lisa):

1. What’s your favorite meal? I love eggplant parmesan with a big salad and piece of fresh, Italian bread
2. Dogs or cats? I've had both... I like the low-maintenance aspect of a cat but the loyalty and playfulness of a dog 
3. If given one million dollars, how would you spend it? I would love to buy a small farm (no animals, just rolling acres for our viewing pleasure) with a charming farmhouse - all fixed up to our liking, with an exterminator contract naturally. I would also take care of a select few family/friends' small debts or wishes. I would hire an agent to help me publish my children's book along with the many others I would write at said charming farmhouse. (Charmhouse hehe). Some would go into my daughter's bank account and the rest we would try to live simply with    
4. Do you prefer biking or walking as a mode of transportation? Walking. I always feel so silly on a bicycle
5. What’s the fitness goal you’ve accomplished that makes you most proud? Honestly, I am just happy that I'm able to start using my ab muscles again. After the C-section I had a hell of a time recovering and now to make it through any workout is a triumph for me
6. What is the best dish that you make? I asked my husband and he said my pasta with homemade Italian gravy with or without the grilled chicken parmesan 
7. Which kitchen utensil do you use most often? My spatula for daily egg-white omelets
8. Brussels sprouts: friend or foe? LOVE!!!!!
9. Would you wake a sleeping baby? Mine? Yes, all the time. Yours? No. Never ever ever
10. Can you recite the alphabet backwards? Nope
11. What’s your first memory? Hmm... maybe being in the living room of my grandmother's old apartment laying in the floor in front of the television while she watched Lawrence Welk

11 Questions:

1. What is your favorite article of clothing?
2. If you could receive anything in the world as a gift, what would it be?
3. Do you prefer talking on the phone or texting? 
4. What is your best high school memory? 
5. Favorite singer/band/group? 
6. If you could sit and visit with any actor or actress who would it be?

  5. My favorite quote on house hunters is "this closet would never fit all of my clothes or this closet is mine, we'd have to find you another". I think house hunters must pay couples to say that because it is ridiculous how many people say it :) Thanks for tagging me - I'll do it tomorrow.
