10 Things You Didn't Know About Me

Thank you to Katie from Growing Up KaterTot for tagging me for "10 Things You Didn't Know About Me". I am really enjoying getting to know other bloggers and learn about their adventures. 

So this is how it works.....
The Rules:
Link back to the blogger who nominated you & answer her ten questions.
Add the badge (below) to your post.
Write your own ten questions & tag ten bloggers to do the same.
Simple as pie right.....

Here are Katie's Questions
1) Do you have kids? How old are they? I have 4 kids. My oldest daughter is 7, my middle daughter is 5, my older son is 3, and my youngest son is 1. 
2) What is your favorite day of the week? Any day that I don't have to go to work and am able to spend it with my kiddos is my favorite. Those don't happen very often but they are usually on Saturday. 
3) What's the last vacation you took? A real vacation?!? That would be two years ago when we went to visit my family in Colorado. My husband and I spent a weekend in Kansas City this June but I don't really count that as a vacation.
4) Would you ever go sky diving? Somedays I think I would. Other days I am way too scared to do it. So I guess it would happen to depend on the day. 
5) Describe the prefect evening at home. I think a perfect night at home would be a pizza and movie night. We would all enjoy watching a movie with the lights off while lounging on blankets with our pillows all fluffed up. There would be bunches of snacks that I very rarely let my kids eat. We have had one of those nights and SJ ended up with a stomach ache because she ate to many Oreos. It was probably still the best day even though SJ's tummy hurt. 
6) Do you have any pets? Do I have any pets....oh goodness do we have any pets. I have a dog, 3 turtles, a fish, 2 rabbits, and 6 chickens. Well I guess one of the rabbits isn't a "pet" and neither are the chickens because my husband has them for food reasons. I still get attached to them. 
7) What is your favorite holiday? Christmas would have to be my favorite. My family has always had amazing traditions that I love keeping with my children. 
8) What is your favorite non alcoholic beverage? Vanilla Dr. Pepper is my all time FAVORITE. I have recently been addicted to making my own drink mix with the strawberry syrup at the fountain with Mt. Dew. Or a Ice Green Tea with Peach. Okay so I don't really have just one.  
9) What's your favorite thing about blogging? Getting to connect with all sort of different people. I have been welcomed with open arms from all of you other bloggers that it has been pretty awesome!
10) Dress or skirt? Both? Depends on what I am doing....I really like long maxi skirts but then again I really love maxi dresses. 

My Questions for You: 
1.) How many siblings do you have? 
2.) How did you meet your significant other?
3.) What is your favorite season of the year?
4.) Would you rather eat your favorite food every day for the rest of your life or drink your favorite drink? 
5.) Do you like salty food or sweet food?
6.) What different countries have you traveled to?
7.) What book are you currently reading?
8.) What did you want to be when you grew up?
9.) What is your favorite movie?
10.)  Heels or Flats?
