This week's questions are as follows:

1. If you could describe your desired lifestyle in one word, what would it be?

Football Mom. Mrs. Tuohy from "The Blindside" exactly who I want to be. Southern, Christian woman who manages to juggle career and family obligations perfectly – with the emphasis being on her family. She would give you the shirt of her back, but if you mess with her family – you might just get more than you bargain for. Oh and she’s a football mom and a booster…kind of my dream here.

2. What style of home is your "House of Dreams"?
Traditional, Southern Ranch: This is something Steven and I talk about often. I love ranch homes – I prefer one floor living. Our dream ranch would include a finished basement complete with an entertainment room and a guest suite. It must have a large front porch to welcome our guests and serve as the focal point for outdoor Christmas decoration during the holidays. Of course, the lawn must be impeccably manicured and inviting. You know…something straight out of Southern Living.

3. If you could live in a fictional story/movie, which would it be and why?
Twilight: Hey, if I’m gonna go fictional, I might as well go all the way. Who wouldn’t want to fall madly in love with a smokin’ hot vampire that sparkles in the sunlight? Bonus – I’d also fall somewhat in love with an even more smokin’ hot werewolf who runs around in the rain wearing tiny little jean shorts. Double bonus –both vampire and werewolf are madly in love with me and fight for my love and affection. Agh…a girl can dream.

4. Do you prefer coffee or tea? Favorite kind?

Coffee: Iced, non-fat, no-whip, white chocolate peppermint mocha from Starbucks.

5. Share the last sweet/romantic thing your hubby did for you.

Cleaning: I came home last week and my entire house was clean. The floors, the kitchen, dusting, etc. It was such a pleasant surprise. I had just mentioned the night before how I had so much house work to complete, and when I walked through the door late after work, he had finished everything for me. That’s love.

You should link-up and join the party.  :)

I would love a one story with a walkout basement on a lake somewhere! One stories are nice! I have a gazillion steps in my home now...and I'm still not skinny...something is NOT right here!

And LeAnn Tuohy....I heart her. I wanted/want to be her too!!

Great answers and cute play along!

I hope you're having a swell day!!

Andrea said...

OH, I want to be a football mom too! I didn't think about that when I was playing along! I picked Forks too for my fictional place! Are you team Edward or Jacob?

Danielle said...

We are like 2 peas in a pod! That house is absolutely perfect. And I pray for boys so that I can be a football mom...give my family history, I'll be a cheer mom ;) But that's ok too!

Kristin said...

Yay! It worked this time! I so enjoyed reading your answers. I'm totally for one-floor living. That's what we have now, and it's GREAT. No up and down stairs with the laundry basket. Oh, and your chocolate mint iced coffee...yummolicious. Chocolate and mint are one of my very favorite combos in this world. Match made in heaven!

Leah said...
