My 11 Questions for the  to answer:
1. how did you and your spouse meet? Bubba and I actually met my Senior year of high school through a mutual friend. We hung out once or twice that year, and he even attended my graduation. The November after I graduated we agreed we would visit mutual said friend in college in Arizona, and would road trip together. That's where we really got to know each other and started to fall in love. 
2. how many children do you currently have? One. And boy, do we love that little one!
3. do you wish you had more or less children? Honestly, that is a discussion we've had lately. We love our little dude tons, and we'd always discussed having more kids, but we just aren't ready yet. This topic comes up every time a friend with a child our childs age (or younger) announces their second or third child. We want more, but aren't ready yet. 
4. describe what life was like for you growing up? Busy, but in the best possible way. We kept busy and kept out of trouble. We worked hard, played harder. It was very family oriented. 
5. what is your dream house & where would it be located? My dream house is a place we can call home. Where I can put nails in the walls and paint them. Where I can have the floors I want, and not worry about moving in a few years.
6. what is your most embarrassing moment? Any time I need to be serious, I seriously cannot. So I giggle at funerals, doctors appointments, etc. I burst out laughing when a doctor called time of death once- and THAT'S the worst part- having to explain its a nervous thing.
7. what is the most memorable song in your life & why? ( song) Drift off to Dream by Travis Tritt. When Bubba and I were dating, I LOVED this song. It came on the Ipod one night, and he pulled the car over and rolled the windows down to blast the music and dance with me. I will never forget it!
8. what is your favorite dessert? My mother-in-laws better than sex cake. Followed very closely by TGI Fridays cup-o-dirt.
9. if you had to pick one thing about parenting that you feel is the most important what would it be? Actually PLAYING with your kids. I sometimes get annoyed at other moms that are always on their phones, or worse, blatantly ignoring their kids. I love to get on the floor and play with little man, chase him, and create memories. 
10. how long have you been blogging & why did you start? I actually was a medi-blogger from 2008-2010, blogging a very Grey's Anatomy style-esque blog about life, thoughts about the healthcare field and the like. It was very successful, but I decided to give it up to focus on the more important things in my life, like my family, school, spouse, and personal likes. 
11. what is your favorite recipe? I don't have a favorite... but I do have a million that I really like. 

My Nominees are....
