Q. Michelle asked me, "What made you decide to be a nanny?"
A. When I started looking for a job as a nanny, I honestly didn't know that it could be a career. My most recent job before this was as a manager for a popular Children's Apparel Store (starts with a "G" but does NOT end with "P"), where I worked at for two and a half years. I had taken some Early Education courses, had work experience as an arts + crafts "specialist" (ha!) in childcare, and had been babysitting since age 10. I was on the internet looking around when I saw an advertisement for a nanny. The lightbulb went off and I thought this was something I could do well & felt I had a lot to offer.

Q. Kim K. asked me, "If I could grant you one wish what would that wish be?"
A. Make me one of your pretty pillows! ;)

Q. "Red Colander" asked me, "Did you always have such a beautiful handwriting, or did you 'make it up'?"
A. For the most part, I've always had pretty good handwriting. Although, I've recently looked through some of my old journals and it's almost always changing!

Q. Sarah asked me, "Tell me about your first kiss: Who was it? Where did it happen? How old were you?"
A. So weird because the first thing I thought about wasn't anywhere close to my first kiss. Interesting. Anyway, his name was Brian and he was the first of a few people I met (in person) via the internet (including my husband!). It happened right outside my house when he was dropping me back off and I honestly don't remember it at all. Weird. I was 15 and he was 17 or 18 (can't remember).

Q. Sandrine asked me, "What is your favourite meal?"
A. Salmon, Mashed Potatoes, + Asparagus. Cheesecake for dessert. (Mmmmm, Cheesecake Factory).

Q. Kim Mc asked me, "Where is your ultimate 'dream' vacation destination?"
A. At this point, Italy or Spain. AND, I may be going to Italy next year! :)

Q. Laura asked me, "What is one of your favorite stamps? What does it look like and who made it?"
A. collage numbers "Collage Numbers" (set of 12) by Stampin' Up! is among my current favorites.

Q. Aimee asked me, "What do you love most about yourself?"
A. My ability to empathize with People, which you actually put a word to for me a few years ago.

Q. Lisa asked me, "What is the one thing you did as a kid that you always dreaded your mom finding out about?"
A. I think that this honestly was probably the worst thing. I guess it's not THAT bad. Hmm, something else. Ha! At the time (and I think I was about 7): Remember when Aimee got in SO much trouble because you found the little Christmas bows she stole from the grocery store in her jacket pocket? You made her take them to the store where she had to apologize. Well. I stole them too!! By some miracle there weren't any in my jacket pockets when you looked (I have NO idea why!) and Aimee (bless you) didn't tell on me! Hee..

Q. Heather asked me, "If you had $1 million, what would you do?"
A. Buy a house; invest; + I can't lie- probably some clothes/ accessories / purses.

Q. Kim C. asked me, "What do you see yourself doing in 25 years?"
A. In 25 years I will be just short of 48 years old. My kid(s) will most likely be just ending high school/ starting college if I have them in 5 or so years. I can see myself creating and/or teaching everyday in a huge home studio. Possibly own a beautiful shop. Even though I LOVE California and I don't like thinking about moving (a great possibility this next year), I always see myself somewhere else when I think of the future. I have very specific visions whenever I think of myself in the future.

Q. Linda asked me, "What is your favorite word?"
A. Discombobulated. :)

WELL!!!! I sure got to know you beter this morning. LOL You were pretty sneaky as a young girl, or perhaps a better word is ingenious. Definately brave. I must not have been too mean as you didn't seem to be afraid of me. I thank God that while your were testing the waters, you never got hurt. Poor Aimee, do I want to know how many things she covered for you on? I'm glad you two are best friends now. It'll give you plenty of time to make it up to her. Love you both with all my heart.....

Hey Joleen!

My sister uses those very same stamps all the time - I think they're so cute - and now I know where she got them from!

Thanx!

It's a good thing I didn't waste my question asking who your favorite sister was. :o). Hey, remember when we didn't want to eat our lunches so we flushed them down the toilet when mom fell asleep?...I thought for sure you'd share that one. Maybe I live too close to mom to be saying that outloud. ::wink::
