My Simple Questions

1. What makes you laugh?
Mike. He is the funniest person I know.

2. My first kiss was...
pretty average. I was 17 and a senior in high school. (We P* girls kissed late in life, very unlike our P* brothers.) It was with my first boyfriend. He was cute, but not exactly what my parents had in mind for me. Luckily it was just a high school fling and ended amicably when I left for the B Y.

3. What celebrity crushes did you have as a teenager?
I was anti-celebrity crushes. I thought girls who had them were lame. (Sorry, Les.) I lived in constant fear of being a "cheesy girl". In my mind, only "cheesy girls" did things like have celebrity crushes, get their hair done professionally for school dances, and wear make-up. I was such a dork.

4. Fill in the blanks: "I cannot leave a ______ store without spending less than $______ ."
I cannot leave HomeGoods without spending less than $20. I love that store. It is my current favorite. Sorry, Target.

5. Name three things you've survived.
a. 2 c-sections. They are very painful and so not fun. I get to have another in about 6 months. I am not looking forward to it. It is only worth it because it gives you a perfect little baby with a perfectly round little head. And you don't have to go through labor.
b. climbing into the bowels of the Great Pyramid in Egypt. I am with you on that one, Les. I was so scared and totally overcame (briefly) my fear of small, enclosed places.
c. living with my parents (for 6 months) and Mike's parents (for 2.5 months) after we were married and had children. It wasn't that bad, but I am sure they were glad to get rid of us.

6. The big decision I'm currently wrestling with is . . .
what to serve at Mel's baby shower (yes, I lead a very easy life). If I served an omelet bake and a berry french toast bake would it be too much?


  1. it's not too much.

    and i, too, lived in fear of being a cheesy girl to the point i almost got underready on purpose. weird. how did we both manage to live the anti-teenage life?

  2. you were very anti-cheesy. i remember asking you when you were 15 if you wanted to come out with me and my friends, and you would rather have read a book. not that i was cheesy, let's just clarify.
    who, after all, was the one that only went to ONE highschool dance where I was actually asked by a boy? Me. and it was a pity date.
    who went to almost every single one? You.
    But at least neither of us ever got fake fingernails.

  3. as far as the food goes, I'm salivating just thinking of those two yummy options, so I vote do 'em both! hurrah for RS q&as!

  4. Berry french toast bake? Sounds like heaven, please email me the recipe.
    For some reason I vetoed eyebrow plucking in high school... how wrong I was.

  5. We so would have not been friends in high school.. :) I was probably the cheesy girl on the drill team, went to every dance, even cheered (like actual cheerleading) at wrestling matches (yikes)... However, I didn't have crushes on celebrities! :)
    You sound way too cool!
    I promise, I'm much cooler now and hopefully not cheesy at all.

    6 days until my c-section... it's really a good thing we are blessed with a beautiful baby so at least there is one good thing as we endure the misery... not so fun.

  6. Well... I was the epitome of cheese I guess. I was desperately in love with Donnie Wahlberg from New Kids on the Block.

  7. come on steph, you didn't even have the hots for christian slater after seeing gleaming the cube?

    what about the boy on shag?

  8. Oooh, Christian Slater was so hot!

    "and you don't have to go through labor"
    Labor is WAY easier than a c-section, especially when you consider recovery! And my babies always have perfectly shaped heads! Well, maybe Sophie didn't, but it was too hard to tell with all the hair. :-)

    By the way, I think you should serve Chucky Larms at Mel's shower. Doesn't she know you are pregnant and SICK?!?!?!
