Here are the rules for this Blog-a-thon. I'll offer to interview whoever responds to this post and will follow these rules:
1) Leave me a comment saying "interview me".
2) I will respond by asking you 5 questions here on my blog. They will be different from the ones below.
3) You will update your blog/site with the answers to the questions.
4) You will include this explanation and an offer to interview others in the same post.
5) When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them 5 questions.
Please try to ask questions that are original and not copied from others' blogs, it makes it more fun that way!! Enjoy!!
Here were Beth's questions for me:
1) I've seen pictures of you and your husband, how in the hell did you end up with red headed kids? (I do think they're cute by the way...you know how I feel about red heads.)
You have no idea how much I detest that question!!!! People are always asking me that, total strangers out in public!! The nerve!! ;) Anyway, hubby has aunts and uncles on his dad's side that are bright redheads as well as a greatgrandmother. I have greatgrandparents and aunts & uncles on my mom's side that were red headed too. So the combined genes were dominant enough to give two brunette parents 2 red headed kids. (I usually give people a dirty look for asking this and tell them my mailman is a redhead!!!)
2) If you had to choose ONE yarn to use the rest of your life, which would it be?
MAN!! You like to ask hard ones. Gotta think for a couple of minutes, shoot, maybe a couple of days!! okay, it would have to be a classic merino wool yarn. Soft enough to wear next to your skin, versatile to design with, feltable, toasty warm, and never goes out of style.
3)Where did you get your love of pink? (seems to be some sort of disease going around LOL)
Finally, an easy one!! I had my colors done by a color analyst and discovered I am a "Summer". The shades of pink I like best are part of the "summer" color palette. I never realized how good it looks on me since I had always leaned towards wearing my favorite colors which are partly "Winter" colors: cobalt, emerald, ruby, black. I didn't pay enough attention to the mirror to notice that those colors made me look like I belonged in a hospital bed!!
4)What do you hope your kids will be when they grow up?
Hmm....well as a good mom, i guess i should say whatever makes them happy. But I'll go a little further and say: I pray that they discover what God has created them to do with their lives at an early age and not be distracted by how much money they're making or not making. If they do that, I know they will live happy, productive lives that will be a witness to others. Now with that said, I just want them to explore the talents they have, tabi is extremely smart and very, very artistic. She's also wanted to play the fiddle since she was 2 yrs old and has never wavered from that desire. Teddy is a very generous child and is very good at communicating verbally, his diction and vocabulary are like that of a 7 or 8 yr old and he's only 3. Trinity is our little comedian and is double jointed like her daddy so maybe gymnastics is in her future?.
5) If you could have any kind of animal what would it be?
Hmm...in general i'm not a animal lover. I don't hate them but I'm not keen on the idea of letting them lick me or how they smell or taking care of their business. But.....I do adore kitties and would love to have a long-haired one someday. We'd also love to have some sheep, alpacas, goats, and angora rabbits for the fibers to spin our own yarns. I say we cause hubby is really into this idea and might end up being the spinner while I do all the handpainting and dyeing of the yarns.
Hope you learned stuff about me you didn't know!!
