I've seen this on a few of my favorite blogs, and it looks fun, so I decided to join in! :)

•If I were to get pregnant again I would be THRILLED but a little worried about how I'd be able to care for Elliot, who would be a toddler at that point and a newborn while Aaron is deployed.

•If I could have any job in the world I would probably be an animal control officer. I'm addicted to Animal Cops. I'm definitely an animal lover and would love to be able to help abandoned and abused animals! The only problem with this job is that I'd have to put Elliot in day care and I don't think I could do that! I love being a stay at home mama and don't think I could trust anyone else to take care of him.

•If I had a day to myself I would probably just sleep the whole day. I'm not even kidding!

•If I could get married all over again I wouldn't change a thing. I love my husband, our marriage, and our life together ♥.

•If I could live anywhere in the US I would probably either stay in Texas or move to Arizona. We really love life down south and I definitely don't miss the cold Michigan winters at all! I love how people down here are friendly and proud of their state/home. You don't see a whole lot of that up north... after high school graduation, if you asked any of my fellow graduates what they wanted to do, most of them simply said, "get the heck out of Michigan!"

•If Elliot would have been a girl he would have been named Maisey, Adie, Eliza, Willow, or Shiloh... we never did really narrow down our girls' name list completely.

•If I could have any talent in the world I would love to be able to paint really well.

•If you met me in real life you would probably say "you don't look like you had a baby!" since that's what everyone says lately, and it's starting to really annoy me. It's awkward!

•If I could go back to school and get a different degree I would go for veterinary medicine.

•If money were not an object we would settle down somewhere warm, buy a house, and have a TON OF KIDS! Like probably 10! lol

•If I could meet one celebrity I would probably want to meet either Ellen or David Bromstad from "Color Splash!" on HGTV because I LOVE him!

•If I could only shop at one store for the rest of my life it would definitely be Target. I love that store way too much!

•If we get another pet it would {and will hopefully soon!} be a puppy because my husband and I love dogs and we want to get a puppy while Elliot is still a little baby so they can be raised together. And because as much as we love our cat Charlie, we can't take him outside for walks and Elliot LOVES dogs and gets SUPER excited whenever he sees one outside.

•If I could go on a trip, RIGHT NOW, I'd go out east to Massachusetts to see all of my family.

•If I had to chose between a house cleaner and a personal chef, I'd DEFINITELY pick the cleaner. I am super OCD about having a neat and tidy house and I feel like I'm ALWAYS cleaning right now, even though it's hard to do with Elliot around.

•If I had the option of plastic surgery I'd probably get a nose job to fix my nose and MAYBE small breast implants so that I'd feel more womanly. I don't know about that though because I feel like they always look unnatural. I just wish I had boobs!


  1. I love this ... I hope you do get your doggy :) If I had all the money in the world I would have a house full of kids to lol and I am totally with you on the 'I just wish I had boobs', I always tell my friend that she should share hers and give some to me lol
