I ride a Harley
Sometimes it scares me
I like old things
I love vampires
I would rather stay at home by myself and read, than go out
I have a girl crush on Lorelei Gilmore
My husband tricked me in to eating sea urchin sushi once, and I nearly vomited but I pretended to like it so not to give him satisfaction
I check my email at least 50 times a day

Ten honest things about Valerie:

I'm a dork.
I was a cheerleader and a flag corps/colorguard member.
I would rather read than do most things.
I drink WAY too much coffee.
I can say the alphabet backwards.
I don't like chocolate.
When I was little I wanted to be a magician.
I really really want to go to Amsterdam.
I still can't believe I actually finished writing a book.
I love anything to do with time travel.

Ten honest things about Kristi:
I might have a slight chocolate addiction.
My idea of a perfect date night involves Netflix and wine.
My 5-yo son beats me on every Wii game we play -- I can't ski jump to save my life.
My hubby even beats me in Wii figure skating.
My 5-yo watching daddy sing the National Anthem on the JumboTron at a Colorado. Rockies game was one of my favorite nights ever.
I'm NOT a morning person -- some might even call me 'cranky'.
My kids get up between 5:30-6am every day -- clearly, they didn't get the memo.
One of the many reasons I love hubby is he often leaves me a cup of coffee on the bathroom counter before he leaves each day, knowing I'll need it upon waking.
I'm a major introvert who can present like an extrovert when necessary.
I'd rather be home with my family than anywhere else in the world.

We would like to give the happiness award award to:



  1. I think it's kinda funny that Valerie doesn't like chocolate, and Kristi is a chocoholic.

    Valerie, I still can't believe I've written a book either. Short story was even hard to believe.

    Kristi, I LOVE that your hubby leaves you coffee on the bathroom sink! And you #9, that is so me.

  2. LOL love your answers!

    I wish my hubby made me coffee every morning, but then again my little boy sleeps in till around 8.30 every morning, so can't complain too much!

  3. Valerie - I was a cheerleader too! I went to Amsterdam and it was um, interesting.

    Lacey - I love reading anything with vampires in it, I just don't write about them.

  4. Aw, thanks for the award, ladies! Glad you're happy : )

  5. Woot! Now I'm happy too! Mucho thanks!

  6. YAY! What a happy surprise! Thanks for the award, and thanks for putting me in the company of such awesome ladies.

    btw . . . I have a girl crush on Lorelei Gilmore, I'm a dork, and my idea of a perfect date night involves Netflix and wine! :)

  7. LOL--This was a cool idea, ladies. Although late to the party, I've added my response over at my blog. :-)

  8. Lol, Stephanie! Who wouldn't have a crush on Lorelei?

    Thanks, Shannon. Better late than never, right? :)
