What a Day!!

1. On a scale of 1-10, how superstitious are you, honestly? Not superstitious but I'm very intuitive. If something isn't right or if I am going to win something I usually know.

2. Julius Caesar is quoted as saying, "I came, I saw, I conquered." Which circumstance or experience of yours does this saying best describe? Didn't JZ have a song with this line in it? I felt that way when I returned from Costa Rica after studying Spanish there for three weeks in '05, after finding healing after my parents divorce, after completion of my first marathon, and when picking up our Lexus. Times when I struggled through something and finished it to completion!

3. If I peeked in on your day like a mischievous little leprechaun, at what time would I most likely find you blogging? I do most of my blogging around 11:00 am - 12:00 pm. After my first cup of coffee and before I work out. I also blog late at night around 11:00 pm - 1:00 am.

4. Re springing forward for Daylight Saving Time, is there anything you've ever been really early or really late for? Umm no. I usually find out/wake up late and figure it out before I show up late somewhere.

5. What are you most looking forward to concerning Spring? I thrive in Spring and Summer. So I'm looking forward to becoming a better version of me and throwing off all those dumb things that entangle me. I'm looking forward to going to Orlando in April, paying taxes, and preparing my body for our trip to the Bahamas :) I am looking forward to the birth of Meagan Hoggs baby, seeing the growth in my friend who is pregnant with her first baby, and keeping my nephew Landon for a week. SO SO SO much to be thankful for.

6. Shamrocks are the national flower of Ireland and are picked on St. Patrick's Day and worn on the lapel or shoulder. Do you wear green on St. Patty's Day? YES!

7. One of Caesar's assassins, Casca, said, "But, for my own part, it was Greek to me," which of course means he didn't understand something. Probably his own lines in the play. Anyway, what is something that is "Greek to you," something incomprehensible or indecipherable? Hmm I think question number 8 is "greek to me" what does this mean??

8. Is March behaving more like a lion or a lamb where you live? ?????? HUH?

9. "An extra yawn one morning in the springtime, an extra snooze one night in the autumn is all that we ask in return for dazzling gifts. We borrow an hour one night in April; we pay it back with golden interest five months later." -Winston Churchill. If you had one extra hour per day every day, what would you do with it? Clean. The sad thing is that I usually have an extra hour and I blog :)

10. Legend says that every Leprechaun has a pot of gold hidden deep in the Irish countryside. Aside from real gold or money, what material item would be in your dream pot of gold? Having a house all my own with 5 kids running around in it!

11. "The best things are nearest: breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of God just before you." Robert Louis Stevenson. Look around you right now and tell us about something essential or beautiful very near you that you take for granted every day. My husband is next to me and I know I take him for granted! He is so gorgeous to me and he needs to know that more!

12. Just for a bit o' fun, click here( and then report your Irish name. Mine is "

." I love it!


  1. #5. I agree. I am looking forward to a better ME. Bahamas? When and why? Orlando, Fl....what there? I am sooo happy for you. I loved the Bahamas. Which Island are you going?

    I love you, my Jenny!

  2. March blows in like a lion and out like a lamb. It is a saying pertaining to the weather patterns during the month of March. :)

  3. Aww Jenny! :) I'm so looking forward to Hudson's arrival too! I will definitely post information concerning his arrival, labor, when (and if) it ever happens, haha. :) Congrats on the car, y'all totally deserve it for all of your hard work. Keep it up!
