If only I were that interesting.........

I'm sure by now everyone has seen the "interview" meme that's been floating around. When I got the chance to have one of my most favorite bloggers ask me the questions....I decided I'd play along. If these kinds of meme's bore you then just go visit my awesome interviewer over at Aunties with advice....she's more fun anyway! For those of you who don't mind being put to sleep...continue.......


1. What are the top ten five items you would want to do on your Bucket List? ( Or before you die)
Travel to Europe with the hubby, hold a grandchild or two, see both of my daughters get married to great guys, retire and spend quality time with my hubby, get together will hundreds of my favorite bloggers and have the BIGGEST party on the planet.


2. With all the books you've read which one is your absolute favorite, besides the Bible, and why?
Dean Koontz "Odd Thomas" It's the only book that has ever made me break out in goose bumps. I wish Mr. Koontz would WRITE FASTER....I loved all his books.


3. Who has been the biggest inspiration in your life?
My mom....I'm pretty sure she is an alien...no human being has that much energy!


4. What would you consider to be your greatest accomplishment?
Raising 3 amazing kids who make me proud to be their mommy...and who showed great resiliency in surviving my parenting skills


5. If you could be doing anything, what would it be ?
Is this where I am supposed to say "create world peace"??? If you mean as a career...then I'd say be an architect OR the president of the United States...although I'd settle for being Queen too......if you mean "anything" I'd say be able to FLY!


Bonus questions!!!!!
6. How did you meet your husband?
I bought him on the Internet at Studs-R-Us ...and I got a really good deal on him too!!!!


7. What was you most embarrassing moment?
Well there was that time with the peanut butter, the tennis racket, and an ocelot......


8. What brings you Joy?
Making people laugh....the sound of it is like hearing angels sing........so be sure to type "LOL" or "hahaha" in all your comments....I really ♥ that!


And since I can't imagine doing a whole post without a single picture......here's some "eye candy".....just because I love you all!

Loved your interview questions and answers. I always kind of wanted to be an architect, too - not bad enough to work for it, though; as I'm not very ambitious. Isn't it wonderful how our children grow up great when we think we haven't done a thing right? Have a great week!! Sally

Have a good day!

Auds at Barking Mad said...

Grand Pooba said...

Ok, I am LOL right now, but in a nervous way after seeing that picture!

What a coinsidence! We bought our husbands from the same place!!

Donna

Jannie Funster said...

Mary Moore said...

Haven't read any Koontz, but I think I will!! Odd Thomas it is!

Jenners said...

I was loving this until I got to the totally creepy and freaky photo! Now I have goosebumps!

LOL! : )

Kim @ Forever Wherever said...

I'm with ya on the flying part! Then I got totally grossed out at the end! LOL :-)
-Kim

tara @ kidz said...

LOL hahaha!

#7 is my favorite. =)

Kate The Great said...

I put the book, "Odd Thomas" on reserve at the library... I have wanted to read something by Dean Koontz!

storypeople said...

You're soooo silly. You'd make a perfect Queen.

I was kind of a 'will not read the horror genre' snob - well, less of a snob and more of a big baby who gets skeered kind of easily. Then Dean Koontz came to our local literary fest as a honored guest of some sort and he was so nice and so shy and had the sweetest dog and I thought, oh hell. Just READ something. Big embarrassment (well, not the peanut butter and ocelot kind, but still...) He's a great writer.

End of long and pointless story.

hellosweetworld said...

That picture is weird-o! Yikes....

And your blog brightens my day every day! I love reading your posts!

Judi said...

Hi Nikki
Oh my goodness that picture is something I have never seen before!! oh dear! I wonder if it could be real...one never knows anymore...
