1. Are you looking forward to the time change this weekend?  Since I live in Italy, our time change isn’t this weekend.  In fact, I’ll have to look up to see when it is, but I know it’s not this weekend.  =)

2. Are you getting the new iPad/would you want a iPad?  No, because Mark got me the iPad2 for Christmas, which I love.  MUCH better than dragging a laptop around all over the place.  But I still do my blogging on my laptop.

3. If money was not a problem, what is the one thing you would splurge on?  A vacation home somewhere and a new wardrobe.  I REALLY need to update my wardrobe and get away from the exercise pants and t-shirts.  That’s pretty much what I live in, and what I buy when I shop, so I have VERY few “nice” clothes, and when I want to dress up, I have nothing to wear.  It’s either a cocktail dress or sweats.  I need to get a bunch of the “in-betweens”, especially now that I’m not pregnant or nursing…

4. How did you and the Mr. (or Mrs.) meet?  I have been friends with Dave for many years.  We grew up in the same church/youth group and we’ve been friends for a long time.  Dave and Mark were college roommates for 4 years.  Dave and Mark studied abroad in Germany for a year, and I went over to visit Dave, and that’s where I met Mark (and ironically, his family also, who was visiting him at the same time).  When I decided to go back to get my 2nd bachelors degree, I went to the same school that Dave and Mark were attending, and Mark and I quickly became really good friends.  I called him my pretend boyfriend for like 7 months before we actually started dating.  =)

5. Summer is right around the corner. Bikini or one-piece?  Ha…  My bikini wearing days are LONG over, thanks to the zillions of stretch marks I have on my stomach from both kids…  I see only tankini’s and one-pieces in my future.


Happy Friday!!

Tankinis and one pieces are cute now though! And I'm in the same boat as you.
Thanks to the brainwashings of our culture I don't feel comfortable wearing a 2 piece.

Hello from Minnesota!!! Came upon your blog from 5QF. A vacation home would be nice... a cabin up north on a lake would be awesome. wait, can I change my answer to a new boat?? :) I agree with the tankinis.. a lot easier to take off to use the bathroom .. then you aren't completely nekked on top hehehe
Happy Friday! :)

Great answers! Loved the story about how you and your hubs met. "Pretend boyfriend!" LOL! Did he know you called him that?

How fun that you currently live in Italy. I just watched Eat, Pray, Love and the food looked so amazing! Thanks for stopping by my 5QF, have a great weekend!
