We were so overwhelmed (and excited) with all of the wonderful questions you all asked when we opened up the floor last week, in celebration of 400 Posts and STILL Talking!! . We have loved answering these questions over dinner and the conversation that some of them have sparked has been so much fun. Thanks for that. I had big plans to break these up into weekly segments, but life got in the way and here it is almost a month later and I am just now posting part 2. Part 1 is HERE.
Mary Ellen asked:
Mamarazzi - If you only had enough electricity to run 3 items in your house, which ones would you choose?
"My stove and refrigerator so I can care for my family and my hairdryer so I can look cute doing it."
Jordan - Would you rather work at a circus or a zoo?
"Definitely a zoo. Zoos seem to take better care of their animals and work hard to make a safe habitat for them"
Big Daddy - What is it like living with two such beautiful, talented ladies?
"Exhausting! They are so smart and witty you need to be on your toes all the time. I am most def outnumbered. I never had a chance. I also feel blessed to be around them everyday."
Mamarazzi - What percent of actual WORK do you do on a daily basis (vs. blogging.)?
"Well blogging is kind of like my office water cooler. Since I work from home it is def a connection to the world out there. I only blog a few times a week, but if I am hosting a Swap or Giveaway I am pretty on top of that (you have to VERY organized) so that adds to my bloggy hours. BUT I honestly think I keep a pretty good balance. So...work 80% vs blogging 20%."
Jordan - Are you going to ever start your own blog?
"Probably someday when I have kids and stuff to blog about. Right now I do stuff on our family blog like Cooking with Jordan and on Saturdays I post my favorite videos sometimes."
Big Daddy - What do you love best about Mamarazzi?
"That she picked me. She is so beautiful and truly had her pick of guys and she picked me!"
Queenie Jeannie asked:
Mamarazzi - What is something you would really like to do or try, but are intimidated to try?
"I thought a lot about this and I can't think of anything I am too intimidated to try. There are a lot of things I would like to do, but nothing that fear or insecurity is keeping me from doing"
Jordan - What do you plan on studying in college?
"Regular college classes first and then nurse school. I want to be a baby nurse and help new moms learn how to take care of their newborns."
Big Daddy - What changes have you made in your life since you were in the hospital?
"I am really paying attention to making healthy food choices and getting more exercise. I want to do everything I can to make sure that I am always here for my family. I lost my dad when I was young, I know it is my job to stay healthy so I don't have to put my family through that kind of loss."
Mamarazzi- Why Diet Pepsi?...you know Diet Coke tastes better!
"BLASPHEMY!! This blog is powered by Diet Pepsi...OK not the blog but the blog author!"
Big Daddy- Ever comment on Mamarazzi's blog?...my husband doesn't on mine and it bugs me!
"Yes, I have been known to leave a comment now and then. I do read every new post but don't always comment, does that make me a 'blurker'?"
Jordan- Caught any frogs lately?
"All of the frogs have been hibernating but it is Spring now so I am sure I will start hunting for them again soon. I am sure they miss me." (new readers, we have a family of frogs living in our backyard and they love Jordan. Every Spring she goes to greet them and "hunts" them though out the Spring and Summer months. She is the frog whisperer...this is why there is a frog poking out of her sparkly purse on our header to see video of J catching frogs in 2007 go HERE.)
Thank you everyone for your thoughtful questions. I will TRY and post more answers next week.
