Ask Me Anything Video Edition Answers: Part One

I originally did this in one big video and then realized it was TOO big.. So I’m breaking this into two videos!

Please excuse the fact that I look like a hobo. I have ZERO makeup on, bags under my eyes – I essentially look like a mom, ha! I could have put on makeup and whatnot and made myself all pretty for you, but then I wouldn’t be very true to who I am. I rarely wear makeup.

Here’s the video! Registered & Protected

Ask Me Anything – VIDEO EDITION!

Happy Thursday everybody!

I did an Ask Me Anything post a few months ago and it went okay. But I know that I can do better! That’s why I’m going to give it another whirl, and I want to use FormSpring this time to do it!

So, my darling and amazing readers I want you to Ask Me Anything. That’s right.. ANYTHING! A few of my favorite topics/hobbies are:

  • Barbershop
  • Nellie, of course!
  • My pregnancy
  • Motherhood
  • Movies
  • TV Shows: Firefly, Six Feet Under, Supernatural, Big Bang Theory
  • Musicals
  • Sookie Stackhouse books
  • Harry Potter

Just to name a few. I’m going to take your questions and I’m going to answer them in a video this time! Yay! I’m excited about this. I’ve never done a video post before aside from Nellie’s weekly vids. This will give you a little more insight as to who I am – what I look like, what I sound like, and what a Spazzy McDorkface I really am! Now for the link to take you to my FormSpring:


So c’mon! You know you wanna!

Ask Me Anything – Answers

Here are the answers to your Ask Me Anything Questions!

1. Julia asked: “What ‘tradition’ of your own are you planning on creating or recreating from your childhood with you new little girl?”
It’s hard to say. A lot of ‘traditions’ from when I was a child are centered around music, so it depends on if she is musical or whether or not she particularly likes music. I am definitely going to want her to develop a love of reading, so perhaps reading to her/telling her stories will become a tradition!

2. New Mom asked: “How many kids do you want and when do you plan on trying for #2?”
I would like a maximum of five children, and no less than two. It really depends on how we stand financially. We will have children until we have a boy, for sure. As for trying for #2… I’d like to wait until Nellie is close to out of diapers. It took us almost a year to conceive her, but there’s no guarantee we won’t get pregnant right away with the second baby.

3. Nicole asked three questions:
“What was the first present you bought for the baby?”
I bought Nellie a bib that said, ‘I Love Daddy’ on it. The first real gift we bought her was a stuffed animal; a fox that lives in her crib for the time being.
“What is your favorite Christmas song?”
Happy XMas (War is Over) by John Lennon, and Star of Wonder by the Roches.
“What is the strangest thing you have eaten or craved to eat during your pregnancy?”
Hmm. I haven’t had really strange cravings, more like really random and out of nowhere. One day, I wanted green bean casserole REALLY BADLY. Another day, it was pumpkin pie. Just totally random and out of the blue.

4. Pregtacular asked: “What is the first thing you’re going to do once you’re all free and clear of your pregnancy (and possible breastfeeding)? A meal of raw oysters, soft cheese and a few bottles of champagne? A roller coaster ride or two?”
A beer with my dinner. I like beer, and I like to try different kinds of beer. I am looking most forward to being able to occasionally have a beer, and also sushi. I miss sushi. And bleu cheese dressing, which is my favorite. I love roller coasters as well, but it will be a while before I can ride one again – the nearest Six Flags is two hours away!

5. Toni asked a few questions:
“Have you picked your pediatrician yet?”
We have one in mind, I just have to stop procrastinating and call the office.
“Have you picked your childcare yet?”
Sort of. We have an idea of our plan.. I’m still sort of in denial about having to go back to work.
“Have you pre-registered for labor and delivery?”
I have the paperwork, it just needs to be filled out!
“Have you packed yours and Nellie’s bags?”
Nellie’s bag has a few items in it, and Josh and I were just discussing this morning about getting mine together. I have a checklist that I keep forgetting to bring home!

Thanks for taking the time to think of questions to ask me! I had fun answering them!


I’ve seen a few other bloggers do this, so I figured I would be a big fat copycat and do it, too. I figured I have a few new followers, and some who have wondered a little bit about me so here’s your chance, readers to….. *cue gameshow music*

Yes, that’s right. ANYTHING. Ask me a question in the comments, and I will answer it! Unless, of course, it’s offensive or overly-embarrassing. But I promise, as long as you keep it relatively clean (I’m not a PRUDE, just.. You know. Trying to keep things friendly 😉 ) and somewhat nice, I will answer! So now, my dear readers… It’s up to you.
