Thank you Jenn from Perfectly Imperfect for your great questions
I just recently started following Jenn, she is so sweet, I love her blog.

1. What's your favorite toy as a child?
My favorite toy growing up was my Barbie's.  I still have a lot of them from when I was little.  I've saved them and some of them are still in boxes.  I even have clothes, the barbie car and furniture.  I saved them all in hopes that I'd have a daughter and she would be able to play with them.  So when my girls get big enough I'll pass them down to them.

2. What is your most embarrassing moment?
My most embarrassing moment I had was recently, I was at Best Buy with the hubby and the girls.  I was holding Keira, we were at the customer service desk getting help when all of a sudden Keira threw up right down my shirt.  It gets better, it wasn't on the outside of my shirt it went down the inside of my shirt.  There were a bunch of Best Buy employees behind the counter who got to witness was GROSS and embarrassing!

3. What is one thing in your life you wish you could have done differently?
I wish that I didn't put off going to school.  I wish I would have gone to college right after I graduated high school, so that by now I could have a really good paying job.  If I had done that I might have had a good paying job before the economy took a dump and now its really hard to find a good job.

4. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live and why?
If I could live anywhere I would want to live back in Las Vegas again.  The hubby and I lived there for 2 years, we had a blast there.  We lived in Henderson which was 10 minutes from the Strip.  We have so many friends that live there and there is so much to do.  We wish we could move back.

My second choice would be Australia, its a place that I've always wanted to visit and think it would be really neat to live there.  You can go the zoo there and pet some Joey's (a baby kangaroo), how cool would that be?

5. What's your favorite color?
Hot Pink

6. Who's your favorite band/artist?
Oh this is hard to norrow it down cause I like a lot of artists
On my ITunes you will hear
Britney Spears
Carrie Underwood
Green Day
American Idol (James Durban & Lauren)

7. If you had to eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would you eat?
If I could eat one thing and not get sick from eating to much of it, it would have to be CHOCOLATE!

Thank you Stephanie from How Sweet it is! for your awesome questions.
I follow Stephanie's blog on a daily basis.  Our daughter's are the same age so it's fun to get advise from her, plus her daughter is just to cute for words!

1. Do you have any sort of accent?
I don't think I have an accent, but to someone who isn't from around here might think I have an accent

2. Are you a hugger or a hand-shaker?
I am a HUGGER for sure. I always feel a littl weird giving people a hand shake.
I like to get hugs and give them as well

3. What does your laugh sound like? giggle, snort or outburst?
My laugh is more of a giggle.  I don't think I've ever snorted while laughing before, but people who do make me laugh even harder!

4. Tell me one thing I need to know about you if we ever meet in person
I've very SHY, it takes me a little bit to get comfortable before my real goofy self comes out.
Some people take my shyness as me being a B****

Thank you Shawna from Girls Just Wanna Have Fun for your questions
I've been blog friend with Shawna for a long time.  I first met her on a pregnancy website and then found her blog on LiveJournal, where I first started blogging about Kaylee and my second pregnancy before we both moved to blogger.  Our older daughters are a few days apart and our youngest daughters are 2 months apart.  So it's been fun to give/get advise from each other and watch our girls grow.  Miss Raya & Brielle are adorable little girls.

1. If you had a 3rd baby, what would your boy and girl names be?
If we had a 3rd baby we would hope it was a BOY
Our BOY name would be - JAX
Our GIRL name would be - a name that starts with a K (to keep with our K theme we have)
A girl name would be hard, since it took us almost my whole pregnancy to agree on Keira's name!

2. What is your move hated children's TV show?  Your favorite?
Kid TV show I hate is The Wonder Pets, its so annoying
My favorite kid show is Olivia (I don't mind watching it)

3. If you had $20 to spend @ Target, what would you buy?
I would buy Long Socks (so they could be turned into legwarmers...thanks Shawna)
search the clearance rack for clothes for the girls
nail polish
coloring stuff for Kaylee

Thank you Britt from Gettin' Fritzy with it for your great questions
I've been following Britt for awhile and she is to funny!  Her girls around close to the same age as my girls and well our girls are very similar.  Her oldest is 2 going on 16 just like Kaylee and her youngest is sweet as can be just like Keira!

1. What does your hubby do?
My hubby works with his dad- JESS POOLS
My hubby digs the pools
2. How do you handle the terrible two tantrums or sister fights?
 We handle the terrible twos with LOTS of time outs.
I found this time out chair on Pinterest that I'm going to make for Kaylee
When I ask Kaylee to do something and she says "NO", she gets a little spank on the bottom and gets put into time out for 2 minutes.  After the 2 minutes I get her down and tell her why she was there and we give hugs and kisses and she goes on her way.  (Thank you Super Nanny)

We haven't had any sister fights yet and hopefully we don't have any...for awhile at least!

3. How often do you get out alone with the hubby? What do you do together?
The hubby and I get alone time once a week when his mom takes both girls for a couple hours. 
Sometimes while their gone we will do the errands that are easier to do when you have no kids around.  We like do a date night and go out to dinner, which is nice.  It gives mommy the opportunity to get dressed up in non spit up clothes or my pj's (which my hubby hates).

Thank you Robyn over at Life, Love and Lorelai for the question
I just started following Robyn but her blog is great and our daughters are about the same age.  Her little girl is adorable, I love her dark curly hair!

1. How did you get your toddler to go #2 on the big potty?
For me Kaylee started going #2 in the potty before she even would go pee pee.  I knew Kaylee's signs as to when she needed to go #2 and when I would see those signs I would run and put her on the big potty so that she couldn't get down.  It would take her a few minutes of sitting there and crying saying she didn't have to go before she would relax and just go.  I had to do this a couple times before she would actually tell me that she needed to go #2.  She has her little potty near the living room where she plays so that she can go anytime she needs to, but when she has to go #2 she will only go on the big potty.  Hope this helped a little bit.

Thank you Kelsey from Kelsey Lately for your questions
I've been following Kelsey for a couple months.  Her kiddos are adorable and they are about the same age as my kids.

1. Do you want any more kids?
I would love to have one more. 
The hubby says we're done unless he can 100% guarantee that we'll have a BOY!
We'll see down the road in a couple years if we'll have ONE more or not.

 2. Now that Keira has hit the "growing up too fast" stage do you want another baby???
I think once babies hit a certain age everyone gets baby fever.
As of right now these last couple weeks have been crappy with Keira teething and waking up 2-3 times at night, that doesn't make me want to have another baby.  If we were to really have another one I'd want to wait till Keira was at least 2 so I could catch up on ALL the sleep I missed.  LOL


  1. I've definitely been known to snort while laughing a time or two. haha. Don't know how it happened but I definitely haven't done it my whole life. I love that time out chair from pinterest. Happy Monday!!

  2. Great answers! I'm a "snorter" LOL. ...and if your guy figures out how to guarantee himself a boy he should let my hubby know, because Lee is all about securing a boy for our third and final! ;-)


  3. I hate I missed the question post but it was neat learning more about you!
