11 Questions from Laura @ My Life South Of the Mason-Dixon 

  1. Why did you start blogging?
    • I started blogging as a way to remind myself what was happening in my life
  2. What bothers you about humanity?
    • People who take advantage of the government. I got a good email today about people who abuse the welfare system. I use to work at a grocery store and it was frustrating to see all the people who abuse the money given to them essentially by tax payers. Here is a quote from the email forward “If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more government intrusion, while not working is rewarded with EBT cards, WIC checks, Medicaid, subsidized housing, and free cell phones ... you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.”   
      • :: Just want to say :: I’m not against people who use these government services for the purpose they are intended for … But when I see Joe Blow down the street with 5 new vehicles and his wife has a new set of fake nails every week but yet their family has to be on every type of welfare possible I think someone just needs to teach them money management.  
  3. One-piece or two-piece swimsuit?
    • Two-piece … hopefully my metabolism keeps up otherwise I'll have to start working out or wear a One-piece.

  4. What was your favorite vacation?
    • Paris, France. I took a Spring Break trip there 4 years ago during college … it was amazing and I hope I can have the opportunity to return there again.
  5. What countries are your ancestors from?
    • Mainly Norway and France
  6. What is one of your prized possessions?
    • My Wedding Ring. It is beautiful and everything I wanted, my hubby did a great job! 
  7. Red or white wine?
    • Red
  8. What is your favorite dish to cook or bake?
    • Any kind of Pasta, I have a favorite 4 cheese pasta bake that is super easy and super delicious! 
  9. What is your go-to stress reliever?
    • A glass of wine or a nap - I like a good walk too but in the middle of winter here in ND that isn't always possible. 
  10. Have you had any celebrity encounters?
    • In high school my girlfriends and I met Billy Currington  :-)

  11. What is one thing you would tell your 15 year old self?
