Peas. I love them now, but absolutely hated them as a kid!

What is one thing you hope to experience with your children?

I want to be able to teach her to cook, bake, sew that sort of stuff. My mom was not the type to be interested to much when I was a kid. I actually remember her throwing away a shirt with a missing button! My grandmother died before I was old enough to really remember doing things like that with her. Well I remember doing stuff but I don't think I learned anything.
What color/ decor is your bedroom?

Can I play this even though I didn't sign up for the challenge?

Neither - we live with my mum currently.
Would you rather live in the country or city and in which do you currently live?

I'm the oldest of 7 but third child of nine. LOL I'm the oldest to my parents by birth, but they divorced and both remarried. Together they had my brother and me. Mom had 3 children after my brother and I, and my step dad had 2 children older than me. My dad remarried and had 2 more children with my step mom. So my siblings and I are 37, 35, me 33, 32, 30, 29, 27, 17, and 13.

Have you ever had to give up something that you didn't want to give up?

Yes, I had to give up my sports in high school cause of an injuried knee while playing in the 1st softball game of the season...

Have you ever thought to yourself or out loud how you would have liked to of started your family earlier or later then you did?

I go both ways with this question. Sometimes I wish I had started a bit earlier because I think I want a 3 year gap between my children, and I would like 4. But that would put me at almost 40 having my last... so that probably won't work. Just never met DH soon enough.

On the other hand I wish sometimes we had waited longer. We got married in July and I was pregnant my November. Sometimes I wish we had waited a bit longer and enjoyed being married first, perhaps taken a holiday or something.


How did you choose your kids' names?

Ryan is named after Goddess Rhiannon. Liam is named after my father William.

Have you been to a Disney park? If so which one? If not, why not?

Yes!!! My favorite vacation place, I've been to all of them! My favorite is Magic Kingdom.


Before you were married how many kids did you think you wanted? Did that change after you were married?

I thought I maybe wanted 3 or 4. DH wanted 2. After having our first I decided 2 sounded good.

How old were you when you got married? Have you ever been divorced?

I was 25 when I got married. I had a huge fear of getting married to young and growing up and growing apart. I was 17 when I started dating Dh.

What was your wedding like?

My wedding was traditional. Catholic church ceremony and then reception hall. I LOVED our reception place, it had such beautiful landscaping outside which made for great pictures!

Anyone have a non-traditional wedding?

not really this is how mine was....we got married by my uncle outside....the only thing we paid for was the licence and my dress (80 bucks) LOL....dh wanted to surprise me with a catholic wedding while he was still in kuwait...hahahaha...but then he realized we would need to take classes...and knowing that would just not work out for me...he said nope...whew! hahaha they wouldn't have married us anyways...i am not catholic...nor would i agree to a religious wedding period...so yeah...we just had friends and family there and a few random guys from the base in their bdu's to show up cause i guess they thought showing up at my wedding (it was held on base on the parade grounds dh was military) would excuse them from going to work for an hour or so LOL....some of them i didn't even know! hahaha....but whatever i didn't care...ummmm lets see raianna was 6 months old at our wedding so i guess that isn't traditional? haha

anyways lol

My wedding was in the only church in our town. We had about 180 guests for the supper and probably 200 for the dance. Since I am from 1200 miles away, and the closest hotels are 30-40 minutes drive from here, we put a lot of my family and friends up in borrowed travel trailers in the campground. We had roast beef supper and chicken in mushroom sauce. It was July 10, 2010. I spent too much on my dress- wish I had spent less. My mother walked me down the aisle. My father didn't come to my wedding because of his relationship with my mom. My brother caughter the garter belt (weird) and my best friend and bridesmaid caught the boquet. My colours were royal blue and yellow. My mother wanted to do an "ocean meets the prairies" theme for the blue and yellow since I am from the coast but I thought that was tacky. Now I think it might have been kind of cool. It was a lovely day but I can't help but look back and feel like it wasn't quite what I wanted.

I think snow can be pretty to look at. Unless I have to shovel it or go out in it. Then I hate it.

Tell us one unusual fact about yourself or your Dh.
