My Answers To Your Questions!

Thank you everyone who asked me a question. I think this is a really fun thing to do, and if you have more questions, or weren't able to ask a question but want to, you can anytime. I am trying to be a very open person and would love to share my life with you.

Kelly from Our Family's Ramblings asked, "Where did you meet your hubby?"
My answer to that has actually already been posted on my blog, but that was when I was really new to this, and none of you were following my blog... so, I will copy and paste here!

So.. how it all started.. I was 12 years old and at a friend's house.. bored out of our minds with nothing to do. What else would we do besides pick up the phone and start prank calling people, right? (Come on, we were stupid young girls.. haha). After a few calls, my friend dialed a number, and threw the phone to me, telling me I would have to marry whoever answered the phone.. After lots of rings, a male's voice said "Hello". I acted as if I knew him and replied with a "Hey, whatcha doing?". We talked for a while, and I insisted that I knew him, and he insisted that he didn't know me, but we continued to flirt. After a while, I told him that my friend David had given me his number. (At the time, I didn't even know a David. It just sounded good). He said okay, and we continued talking for a total of 4 hours that night.

We talked on the phone every single day after that. (Later I found out that he had asked his friend David about me, and of course he said he had no idea who I was, but Kevin continued to talk to me everyday). After 3 years of talking on the phone, I finally told him that I loved him and he said he loved me too. So, the next day, we met in person. Our hearts have been inseparable ever since.

A year and a half later he proposed. A year and 4 months after that, we got married. Yes, I was very young. I actually graduated from high school early in February of 2005, then turned 18 in March, then got married in April. Three and a half years later, we're still going strong, with a beautiful daughter.

So obviously my friend was right, when she said I'd marry whoever answered the phone.. :)

Lori from Teacher Turned Mommy asked, "What do you want to be 'when you grow up'?"
Well, I used to want to be a teacher myself. I wasn't sure which grade.. Either Kinder or 1st or high school math. I wasn't sure, but oh well. It didn't happen, and it probably won't ever. For now, I want to be just what I am - a SAHM. After that, I'm not sure. I am thinking about getting a degree from home, and going into accounting or some type of business thing (mainly because that's what my husband does, and then we can work together and stuff). I guess if I skip all this mumbo jumbo, the real answer is, I don't know.

Lori from Teacher Turned Mommy also asked, "How many kids do you plan on having?"
At this point, we're thinking 3. I almost had twins with Leala, but the other egg didn't develop, so I am scared that if we go for number 4, it might be 4 and 5! I can just not handle 5 kids.. 4 would be pushing it. Right now, I'm wondering how 2 will work! haha.. Hopefully there will be a boy in the first 3, and then we'll leave it that. If there's not, I think we might still leave it at 3, but of course there will be the temptation to try for number 4. And yes, we have names picked out already. We have for years.

Lori from Teacher Turned Mommy also asked, "What is your favorite thing to do when you are not with your kiddo?"
Well, I haven't been without Leala more than twice since she's been born.. Once to get my hair done, and once to go to the store real quick (like 25 minutes).. But later, I would love to be able to go on dates with the hubby.. Go to the movies, go out to eat, go to park for a walk.. just me and him..

Daphine from Just Stuff asked, "How long have you been married?"
We got married April 17th, 2005 (two months after I graduated early from high school early, and a month after I turned 18). So, we've been married for 3 years, 8 months and 2 days... :)

Daphine from Just Stuff also asked, "Where did you meet your husband?"
I'm copying and pasting this from a previous question. My answer to that has actually already been posted on my blog, but that was when I was really new to this, and none of you were following my blog... so, I will copy and paste here!

MiMi from He & Me + 3 asked, "What camera do you shoot with?"
It's a FinePix s7000. A great camera my husband picked up in Hong Kong while on a deployment. I love it. It does really great quality and catches anything, even while moving.

MiMi from He & Me + 3 also asked, "How many kids do you eventually want?"
I'm copying and pasting here too.. At this point, we're thinking 3. I almost had twins with Leala, but the other egg didn't develop, so I am scared that if we go for number 4, it might be 4 and 5! I can just not handle 5 kids.. 4 would be pushing it. Right now, I'm wondering how 2 will work! haha.. Hopefully there will be a boy in the first 3, and then we'll leave it that. If there's not, I think we might still leave it at 3, but of course there will be the temptation to try for number 4. And yes, we have names picked out already. We have for years.

Kasey from Simply Crazy Life asked me to tell you "something strange, almost embarrassing about yourself!! Some kind of strange fact.. something odd you do.. some secret single behavior type thing!"
My husband says I talk in my sleep.. haha.. The other night, I said, "It's running away. The bed. It's running away." haha.. I had to ask my husband for help on this one, and he said when I'm around my parents, I talk in a quieter voice.. like child like. :)

Kasey from Simply Crazy Life also asked, "What is your most embarrassing moment.. as a parent?"
I asked my husband for help on this one too.. I can't think of anything after Leala was born, but while I was pregnant, I had a few.. haha.

Once, I threw up in the chip aisle of Wal-Mart because a woman smelled like urine.. It made me sick to my stomach, and I threw up right there.

I also almost passed out in Wal-Mart because my sugar got too low. I was standing in line ( for 35 minutes) and couldn't see anymore.. I moved to the side and sat down. I was so very embarrassed.

I ate 5 strawberry cupcakes in one sitting..

Shauna from Our Little Corner asked, "If you could have any kind of career (excluding mommyhood) say you have no children...what would you do?"
I think I would have become a teacher. Or accountant.. Depends. On what? I'm not sure. Ialways wanted to be a teacher, but now, being a mother, I just don't think I could do it. I think I would be a great accountant though.. And I'm pretty sure I'd love it.. I'm a nerd, I know. haha.

I think this is all the questions. If you asked something and I didn't answer, let me know. :)

Hey loser. Sorry, I haven't called. I have been so crazy busy. I got home (safely, btw) last night. Brandon's flight was delayed so it was really late when I got in from that. Today we have had a ton of running around to do, and tomorrow will be more of the same. I am so tired. It is only like 7:30 and we are both already talking about going to bed. lol. I still need to do a few things before that can happen though. But anyway, I am going to call you Monday! lol Love ya!
