Lindsay Asked:
If you could go back in time to one event, which event would you choose and why?
I would definitely choose my wedding.  I still remember it like it was yesterday.  I don’t think I’ve ever had more fun in my entire life than I did on my wedding day.  Even though it was just under two years ago, it was the best day of my life so far.

If you could be any super hero, who would you be?
Have you ever seen Kickass?  I love Hit-Girl.  She is full of spunk, she’s only 11 years old (in the 1st one) and she can kick some serious ass.  And for good reason. 

What is your favorite book?
My favorite book is probably any of the Harry Potter series or The Things They Carried.  I am an English major so I’ve read many books, my last semester of college I read over 30 novels.  The Harry Potter series always really inspired me and impressed me, I love how it appeals to readers of any age.  The Thing They Carried is a novel about Vietnam War & it was just a really amazing story.  I read that my junior year of high school and it still really sticks out to me.

What is something on your bucket list?
A trip to Tahiti.  Hands down, that is probably one of the top things on my bucket list to date! 

What is your greatest accomplishment to date?
I think getting a college degree & finding a really good job at 22.  Even though I’m now 27 & I’ve done a lot of other things, that degree was an extremely important accomplishment.

What is one thing you wish you were better at?
Relaxing, not worrying, & being able to relinquish control.  Pretty heavy stuff right?  I am such a type-A person that I sometimes drive myself crazy.  Between all of the lists and post it notes I have stuck everywhere, to my need to be organized & mess-free, I wish I could sometimes be less worried about getting the laundry folded, the grocery list organized, the dishes done, etc.

Who is your favorite blogger?
Jessica at Little Baby Garvin was the first blog that I followed.  I found one of her pics of her & her chalkboard on Pinterest and I couldn’t get enough.  She was only about half way through her pregnancy when I  found her.  She has been a huge inspiration.  Also Natasha at Hello! Happiness.  She’s always got great recipes, cute bucket lists, & great life advice.

What is your favorite blog post?  Link back so we can read it
1st Anniversary Vow Renewal.  Some of the pics are missing, but there are enough there that you can see we had a great time!

If you could be an animal for a day, what would you choose and why?
Hands down, a dog.  They’re so happy, they get to nap all day, they get to be petted, they just have it made. 

Where do you see yourself in five years?
I see myself in the house that we built, with a baby or two that we were finally able to have with my amazing husband, my dog Frank, (maybe another dog too), working, & living a beautiful life.
What do you hope to accomplish through blogging?
I started my blog when my husband and I were just trying to get pregnant.  We had just been in a motorcycle accident & I was laid up at home.  I found Little Baby Garvin and she inspired me to start a blog about our journey of getting pregnant.  After almost 2 years we have not yet conceived & we are just beginning our journey down infertility road.  I now hope that my blog will be a great place for me to vent any emotions that I have as we start down this path & as a place where I can record everything that goes on in our lives & be able to one day go back and reflect on it.
