1) If you had an unlimited amount of money to spend at any store of your choice, where would it be? Oh my goodness...the choices. I'll have you know I thought about this question carefully before answering...and I still have 2 stores that I can't pare down. First I'd have to say Lowes....think of the things you could do! We'd add a second story and garage to our house, new roof, repaint, new carpet, gorgeous bathrooms....mmmmmm
And then there's Pottery Barn. nuff said.
2) Where's your favorite place to eat?
Right now...and you're going to laugh...I'm loving Sweeto's Burritos. It's a food truck in Idaho Falls. 3 words: Sweet. Pork. Burrito. If you're in the area, I highly recommend it!

I always make time for myself at the end of the week or weeknights to do something creative. I will do ANYTHING crafty. My latest project has to do with chalk paint!

7) What's your favorite part of the day?
When I was a SAHM this summer, I loved afternoon nap time. The boys would be in their cribs asleep, and I would hop into my cozy bed with new sheets and a comfy comforter. I would open the window so that I could fall asleep to the "sounds of summer" underneath my off white, cable knit, bamboo throw. Aaaaaaaaaaahhh heaven.

Something I don't allow myself to have on a normal basis, like fries...cheesecake...pop...classy, I know!
9) You can go back in time and change one thing without negative consequences. What would it be?
Oh my there are so many things....one thing I would have done differently was take the $0 interest financing on my Sears card. I chose to take $10 off of my purchase instead, thinking that we were going to put our washer and dryer on my card and then pay it off (we got it at a better price that way). Well that didn't happen and our $850 set turned into a $1300 set. Not a ton in the long run, but it SUCKS that I had to learn that lesson that way!

Lisa Kudrow, Courtney Cox, and Jennifer Aniston, duh! Oh, and when they are busy, Jessica Simpson and I hang out and try to figure out what tunaFISH is, lol. Well....then there's the Will and Grace bunch...I love them too....
