Ask Me Anything: Answers

Thank you to everyone who was brave enough to ask me questions. 
You guys asked some good questions!

* Shawna from Girls Just Wanna Have Fun asked...
1. Oo, I have one! :-) How's your house hunt going and what sort of things are on your "wish list" for a new home? Do you guys both agree on what you are looking for, or do you think there will be disagreement?
My wish list is
* big kitchen semi updated
* 4 bedrooms (I want each of the girls to have their own room when they get bigger and a sewing/spare room)
* 2+ bathrooms
* a big backyard (for the girls)
* semi updated (I want to be able to make it our own)
* carpet in the bedrooms
I think Jason & I will agree on almost everything.  He might be a little pickyer (is that a word) than me.  I guess we'll see how it goes after January when we get to see how much we get approved for.

* Andrea from Life in Dawleywood asked...
1. where is your favorite vacation spot? 
I love the beach, so anywhere involving a beach and I'm there.  Our two favorite spots to go are Pismo Beach and Santa Cruz.  We will actually be taking family vacations to both places this year and I'm excited!

2. What is the biggest difference between having 1 and 2 children?
The biggest difference is trying to juggle your time between both kids.  Trying to spend that one on one time with them.  Another big difference is running errands, so much easier to do with one kid.  But I love having my girls so you get use to it and you find a routine that works out for everyone.

3. What is your favorite thing about your husband?
I have been with Jason for 10 years on Jan 22 and I love everything about him.  I love the fact that he can make me smile even when I don't want to.  I love that he loves me for me and he would do anything for his family.

* Mallorie from Happy Home asked... 
1. When should we expect bebe #3?? :-)
We are actually DONE with babies.  I know, such a shame. I know you want to see more of my beautiful offspring.  But the hubs says the only way we would have baby #3 is if he can be guaranteed to have a BOY!  And since that is to expensive we are done!
2. What kind of camera do you have?
I have a Canon Rebel T3
I have always had a canon point and shoot, so when we decided to get a DSLR we knew we were going to get a Canon.  I love it!
3. How is your kiddo's sleeping going? I remember a while back you were working really hard to get Kiera to sleep well, is it any better?
Since we switched Keira into her room with Kaylee, she has been sleeping great!!!
I should have moved her into that room a long time ago.  I guess you live and learn.  But I am so glad that she is sleeping good and waking up in such a good mood.
4. Where do you shop for the girls? They always look SO CUTE!
I shop for the girls at Target, WalMart, The Children's Place and Carters.  I get a lot of their clothes from Carter's when there having there big sales.

* Bethany from Growing Each Day asked...
1.What are some pointers you have on surviving having two children close in age?
Some pointers I can give is to get lots of rest when both girls sleep.  To ask for help, don't think you can do it all by yourself.  Enjoy every minute cause baby #2 seems to grow up so much faster than the first.

* Amanda from 2LittleBugs asked...
1. If you could hop on a plane right now and go on vacation where would you go?

2. What are your favorite TV shows to watch?
I watch Teen Mom, American Idol, Say Yes to the Dress, The Bachelor, House Hunters and lots of cartoons with the girls!
3. How did you and Jason meet & how long have you two been together?
Jason and I met our senior year in High School and on Jan 22nd it will be 10 years together.

Is there a baby #3 in the future!? :)

What software do you use to edit pics?
I use Picnik to edit all my pictures in.  I hope to learn how to do more in Photoshop.

How many compliments a week do you get on the girls? They are so freaking cute!
Awww well thank you.  I do get a lot of compliments and mostly its about those big beatutiful blue eyes of theirs!  I was so glad that they got blue eyes and kept them.  Daddy has brown eyes.  I also love that they look so different, I got one blonde and one brunette.
