One Word that Describes You: Obsessive-Compulsive  (Is that one word or technically two??)

What makes you smile? I love a clean and organized house.  Chocolate.  A good day with the family.  Sleeping children.

What is one of your dreams you hope to accomplish soon? Run a half marathon.  My hope is to run one in the spring.  I just finished my first triathlon last summer and am working towards running my first half-marathon.  I am too chicken to run a full marathon.

One of Your favorite motherhood moments? Watching my kids fully embrace, love and defend one of their neighbor friends who has Down Syndrome.  It melts my heart.

What is your guilty pleasure? Ummm…just one?  I LOVE chocolate.  I Love Dr. Pepper…but I just recently quit drinking it to train for my half marathon :( !  A new purse!  Watching in mild horror/fascination the show Hoarders!

What do you love most about you? My resilience and faith.

Favorite Holiday? My favorite Holiday would be to get away to a tropical island and just veg.  Sleep in, eat breakfast in bed, lay out in the sun and read, do some light touristy shopping, go sight seeing and just relax…no particular scehdule, no cleaning, no dishes, no phone, no internet…just me and my handsome hubs.  That’s not too much to ask is it?

Who is your hero? My Mom!!!  She is an amazing woman from a line of amazing women.
