Paula's coming!

Ok, YIPPEE! My best friend Paula is in the car right now on her way down here! She's going to drive halfway today and spend the night in Columbia, South Carolina, but tomorrow she'll be down here. And the boys--the cutest three boys (other than my nephew Will) on the planet! Maggie is so excited that she'll get to take Jackson, Collin, and Ryan to her zoo this week. :) WHooohoooo!!! Can you tell I'm a little excited, too? :)

Gina had these questions on her blog this morning and I thought they were fun, so I'm going to answer them too:

11. Would you bungee jump? maybe if I weighed less.
12. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off ? sometimes
14. What is your favorite ice cream flavor? depends...Chocolate Chip from Baskin Robbins (or from most places). If there's a Coldstone Creamery, though, it's Birthday Cake with a little hot fudge, a little caramel, and some heath bar bits thrown in. YUM!
15. Shoe Size? 10
16. Red or pink? Red, just don't make me wear it--clashes with the hair

26. What is the first thing you notice about the opposite sex? eyes. I'm all about the darky smouldering eyes
27. coffee or tea? coffee smell but tea to drink
28. Favorite Drink? a drink drink? That would have to be a Mai Tai. YUM!

Don't think I won anything in college (was having too much fun then!). The students at my school picked me as Teacher of the Month a few years ago (before I got married and quit teaching high school, that is). :)
39. Do you have any tattoos or piercings? I have my ears pierced but I never wear earrings--what's the point? I've got so much hair that no one ever sees earrings anyway.

45. Favorite Junk Food? chocolate chocolate chocolate
46. Rolling Stones or Beatles? The Beatles
47. What's the farthest you've been from home? I'm not sure about comparative distances, but I have been to Ireland (obviously) to see family and I have also been out west. I think Vegas is the most west I've been.

Ok..questions over! Happy Monday!
