Five Fabulous Questions..

For all the Bloggers that want to play!
Here's how it works:
1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me." 2. I will respond by e-mailing you 5 questions. 3. You update your blog with the answers to the questions. 4. You include this explanation and an offer to interview others. 5. When you receive the comment from another, you will send them 5 questions.

1) If Darby had been a boy, what would you have named him?
Originally I was set on the name Jack for a boy. Then we started realizing how many Jacks we knew, how many were on the way, and how many of our friends were planning on using that name too! So it's a good thing she was a girl! We didn't have to argue over names, we both loved the name Darby from the start and we love having a girl!!
Little D, a.k.a. Drooly McDroolerson

2)How did you know your hubby was the ONE?
When Eric and I first started dating, I've heard from our friends that he was so excited he told them we were perfect for each other because "We both live in our Grandparents old house, we both have boxers (the dog breed) and we have the same boom box!" I thought that was too funny. Who would have thought our matching tastes in boom boxes and dogs would bring us to a strong marriage and a beautiful baby?!
On a serious side - I don't know exactly when I knew, I can't pinpoint the "ah ha" moment (as Oprah would say) but as Eric and I dated and got closer, it was pretty undeniable that we were made for each other. He has a wonderful family that I fell in love with alongside him. His parents treated me like their daughter even before we married.
There were a lot of things that made me more then certain Eric was "the one" for me!!
Come on, who wouldn't want to marry someone as stylish as he is?

3) If you could vacation in one of the places you used to live, were would it be?
I am going to count spending a semester in Austria as places I've lived! So hands down, I would go there. I hope one day I will be able to travel with Eric to Europe and take him to Gaming (where I lived). It was a amazing being there, I had reverse culture shock when I had to come home and I pray I will make it back someday!

4) Would you rather have triplets or three babies born a year apart?
3 babies born a year apart. The thought alone of triplets, or twins for that matter, is exhausting! I really admire those who have multiples. I'm sure it is a huge blessing, but a lot of work and I would imagine you would feel spread so thin!

5) If someone gave you $5000 today, what would you do with it?
Honestly, nothing exciting. I would put it right into savings. Living off one salary isn't easy in Southern California and me being able to stay home with Darby is a big priority for us.

Interview Me? :)

I'm actually just a lurker... I've been reading your blog since last spring.

I wanted to say hello and tell you that Darby is adorable!

(Since you don't know me, if you don't know what to ask, I completely understand.)

Take care,

Hi Jill! I'm glad you left a comment! I'm always wondering exactly WHO (besides my family and a few friends I know of) read my blog!

I would love to interview you, I'm sure I can come up with some questions!... do you have a blog I can post the questions on as a comment?

Let me know! Thanks again for reading!

jill said...

Sure :) My blog is at

I'm new to blogging (though I've been reading blogs for a while now) so answering some questions would help me share a bit more information.

Nice to "meet" you!
