Yep...So I've got nussin' to talk about today so BYOC it is.


1. If you were given $1,000,000 that you had to spend ONLY ON would you spend the money?

I don't need nearly that much to get the stuff I want.
A house I love.
New wardrobe for me and Hubby.
Activities for my girls - anything they want to do.
A real honest to god vacation with my girls.
A real honest to god vacation with just me and my hubby.
2 new cars.

That's about it.  I'd be completely content with this.

2. Who would you say is the one person that's had the most influence on your life? By that, I mean the person that has molded you in to the person you are today?

This one is so hard because I believe that everyone shapes us in some way or form.  I think parents always play such a big role in who we become.  Whether you rail against becoming your parents or you idolize them and try to emulate them, you can't escape their influence.  I know this is especially true for me in both respects.  I met my hubby when I was 18 and regardless of what the government might say, you're not all growed up at 18.  I know he has helped "mold" me into who I am today and when you become a parent and you're lucky enough to have a partner in that endeavour, it definitely makes a difference in what kind of parent you become.  If you're a single parent, you can do it your way (the "right way" lol) all the time.  Compromise not necessary.  If you have a partner, compromise is going to have to happen.  And I'm not sure if people think this way, but I know my kids have shaped me.  They make me want to be a better person, a healthier and better me.  I'm not sure if anyone could mold another person more than children.

3. What is your normal morning routine? Are you a bear in the morning, or is the morning your favorite part of the day?

Definitely not a morning person.  I get up, pee (if it's a Monday, I then weigh. LOL), do my make up, get dressed, start the coffee, get my lunch together and out the door.  I eat breakfast and everything after I've had my coffee at work.  I'm lucky that my Hubby does the morning routine with the kids so his schedule is much more hectic.

4. If you're a Facebook and Twitter user, which do you prefer and why? If you're just a Facebook user, what do you think of the new changes? 

Technically I'm on Facebook but I never log on.  I don't tweet.  I generally HATE social media (funny coming from a blogger, eh?). I don't need to know that the girl who I went to school with in 2nd grade just ate lasagna.  I just don't need to be that plugged in.

5.  Repeat was your week in real life and in blog land this week? 
 Blogland - Abuzz with excitement about the weekend in Chicago and great picture posts to read through.  It has totally jazzed me up for next year.  I just got to get my finances together to be able to pull it off.  I won't be blogging much, if at all, next week as it's my daughter's Fall Break so I'm out of work on Monday, Thursday and Friday and alas...that is where I do my blogging but I'll try to check in.

Real Life - Eh.  Work is work.  The weather is finally starting to cool down which I LOVE!  I'm thinking we may go on a hike tomorrow morning if Hubby is up for it.  Eating has been so-so.  Food hasn't been so great but  portions have been OK and Starbucks has been cut out completely so far this week.  After my loss last week, I'd hate to see a gain on Monday but it is what it is. You'll notice the activity has been really good and it feels good to be active again.

I was telling my hubby that while I think it's sad that Steve Jobs died (he was only 56) and I understand that he was such an innovator and influenced pop culture in an unprecedented way, I don't understand why people who had never met the man in person are feeling the need to leave flowers and makeshift memorials in front of Apple Stores.  I also don't understand people lining up for miles to catch a glimpse at the royal family or holding vigil at Michael Jackson's Neverland.  Guess I'm just not the type.  But I realize that it's big news so in honor of Steve Friday Funny:

Hey MP - just wanted to say hey, and that it's SO awesome to find a fellow Buffy/Angel fan!!!! I HIGHLY recommend the series on DVD - no commercials, outtakes, commentary, it is the bomb. And I think now, you can get full season box sets - all 7 together for Buffy and 5 for Angel - they are SO awesome. I'm also gonna highly recommend the 2 seasons of Dollhouse out on DVD - there are a few epi's that are a bit blah, but the overall arc of the show, and the ideas it presents by the end are so. freaking. cool. Hope you're having an AWESOME weekend so far!!! xo

You know, if you ever do figure out the leaving memorial-type things for someone you don't know - PLEASE tell me (I feel like it's a secret that everyone knows about - but me) !
