A Monday Fun Day!

I've seen this little questionnaire floating around many a blog here lately. I couldn't help but internally answer the questions as I read other bloggers answers, so instead of keeping my responses to myself, I thought I would tell them to you. And you can tell yours to me by blogging it too, if you so choose. Capisce?

1. If you could have any superpower what would you have? Why?

Hmmm... this is a toughie. I think I'm going to have to go with the obvious choice - to fly. How incredible would it be to just fly on over to the grocery store? Or take a nice evening flight after a hard long day? Besides bugs hitting my face, I'm sure flying would be a great way to clear your head and relax. Wait. Scratch everything I just said. I would rather be like Samantha Stevens (Bewitched), twinkle my nose and do/have whatever I need right in front of me. Yup, that's my final choice. But I don't want to be a witch. Because that's not very nice. I just want her nose-twinkling super powers.


2. Who is your style icon?

I don't have a style icon. I see what I like and I go for it .... I could really care less WHO is wearing it. But, here are some people who almost aways wear things I love: Carrie Underwood, Olivia Palermo and Emma Pillsbury from Glee. (I used her Glee name, because I don't know that she dresses like that in real life. One would only hope.)

3. What is your favorite quote?

I'm not one for favorite quotes, call me crazy. I like clever, witty phrases rather than profound deep thoughts. Lyrics stand out to me a lot, too. Here's a quote that I use often. I got it from It's a Wonderful Life.

"Why this old thing? Well I only wear it when I don't care how I look."

(You're supposed to say it after someone compliments you when you know you look fabulous.)

(But don't do it in public or to someone who thinks you're being serious. Only say it to your husband.)

4. What is the best compliment you've ever received?

Any compliment thrown my way regarding my role as a wife and a mom. NOTHING gives me greater joy than those words of encouragement and affirmation. Because .... Husby and Levi? They are my world.

5. What playlist/cd is your CD player/iPod right now?

Hanson's new CD - Shout it Out.
And four different Glee CD's.

6. Are you a night owl or a morning person?

It's 12:27am and I am writing this. Night owl. No question about it. (Though I often regret it in the morning.)

7. Do you prefer cats or dogs?

Dogs. Cats make me sneeze. And the way they arch their back gives me the creeps. (Sorry, Cat People.)

8. What is the meaning behind your blog name?

Well, it's pretty self explanatory. So many people see Stay At Home Moms as run down, tired, frumpy women. And though we all get run down, we all become exhausted and we've all seen our frump-tastic days, it's all about keeping a clear focus on the plan God has for us in whatever our calling is and doing it to our best ability. I'm setting out to show the world (or my little piece of it) that to everything there is a glamorous side. You just have to be willing to find it.

And if that calling is an At Home Mom...

dance while you dust...sing while you scrub...whistle while you work...laugh while you launder...clap while you cook...and pray as you parent! Make your life fantastical - in whatever you do!!

PS - Go HERE to enter my BFF's first giveaway!! YAY!

  3. Yes! Dogs for the win! I'm not exactly creeped out by cats, though. I just think dogs are so much more fun! I like this little meme.
