    This IS fun. Thanks for putting this together Mary!

    What was your favorite childhood game?
    If you mean just in general, I always loved Hide and Seek and Dress Up. If you mean board games, I liked the ones with cool moving parts like Rat Trap and Hungry Hungry Hippos.

    What board game do you like now?
    I don't play a lot of board games....but occasionally I like to play Trivial Pursuit, Pictionary, and Cranium

    What outdoor activities do you enjoy most?
    I like going for walks. I'm a bad Coloradoan because I rarely go hiking, I've only been camping like 3 times, and I've never skied in CO. But I do like to take in some fresh air and go for a walk.

    What is your favorite thing to do to unwind/relax/de-stress?
    Wine. LOL No, really my favorite thing to do is just throw on a movie or a good TV show and hang out with DH after I've gotten everything I wanted to do for the day done. I just can't rest if I've still got things on my Daily To Do list (like dirty dishes in the sink) so I love the feeling of knowing that I don't have to do even one more productive thing for the day. I'm done. And wine. LOL

    What do you like most about your job?
    It's something new every day, and my job is productivity based rather than time based, meaning that as long as I get everything done, they are very flexible about my time, et cetera.

    What do you like least about your job?
    This is so mean, but there is this one girl....She's just super super negative all of the time, and any more she pretty much refuses to talk to me, and she sits right across the aisle so I have to see her and see her ignoring me every day. It's a bummer, but I don't let it get me down. I think she's just a really unhappy person all the way through, to be honest.

    That is so sad about that girl, Alissa. Good thing you don't let it get you down. I hope she can find some happiness in her life.

    I'll try to come up with some more questions for you later.

    What brand of chocolate do you like the most?
    Cadbury

    What book are you currently reading?
    The Host by Stephanie Meyer

    What magazines do you like to read?
    Hmmm....I guess I don't really read magazines very often. The only one I can remember reading over the last couple of years is High Five with T. LOL

    How did you meet your DH?
    Oh no. It's scandalous! He dated a friend of mine....then they broke up and a couple of years later we met up again. But I had a boyfriend.....

    Where did you go on your first date?

    First official date - a free Steely Dan concert. The time we both consider our real first date, we went to a Chinese restaurant and then bowling. We were supposed to be just friends, and I had that boyfriend at the time, and nothing happened (no kissing or holding hands or romantic talk or anything like that) but we both felt it.

    What do you like most and least about your DH?

    Most - his sense of humor
    Least - his Eeyore-ness. LOL That's what I call it. When things go wrong, he sometimes turns into a total Negative Nancy. Like, no making the best of a bad situation, or turning lemon into lemonade - in his mind, everything is awful and they can only go downhill from here. It drives me crazy because I'm usually pretty positive and optimistic.

    What do you like most and least about T?

    Most - He is so freaking smart, it completely blows me away every day. He's also incredibly sweet and loving. And funny! Okay, so I like most things best about T. He's amazing.
    Least - I hate it when he whines.

    Do you get along with your IL's?
    Yes, they are awesome.

    What's in your purse right now?

    All sorts of crap. I'm too lazy to get off the couch and go get it, but I know that I have my wallet, keys, cell phones (work and personal), work badge, all of these miscellaneous papers, some sort of crumbled up granola bar that I keep meaning to clean out but keep forgetting about, and a bunch of lip glosses and chap sticks that I never wear. Oh, and some mysterious unlabeled medicines. They are little and red and round in a bubble pack. I found them at the bottom of my purse the other day. I'm thinking they might be a decongestant. I guess next time I'm sick I'll try one and find out. LOL

    What's your can't-miss TV show(s)?
    When it's on, True Blood. I also love House (although I suspect they jumped the shark last season), Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and 30 Rock.

    Did you do any extracurricular activities in high school? (sports, choir, etc)
    Choir

    What was your first job?
    I was a hostess at Lone Star Steakhouse and Saloon. We had to line dance and sing at regular intervals.

    Where was your last vacation?

    Rapid City, SD. And it was awful. T got the stomach flu, and it was hotter than 9 yards of h#ll the entire time we were there.

    1) My DH is the same way! Drives me crazy.

    2) Is there any lettering on the pills? I can look them up next week when I go back to work. (I work at a hospital.)

    LOL - I'm such a goof. Turns out I was right - they are decongestants. Helps if you just turn the package over and read what is written on the back of the bubble packing. LOL I figured they were though. I don't take a lot of OTC medicines, so there was a pretty limited range of options.

    Do you have a favorite movie...one that you never get tired of watching?
    Overboard with Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell! It's been my favorite ever since I was a kid. When I was a kid, my cousins (Shanna and Chelsea) and my brother and I all used to go spend like a month+ during the summer with our grandma, every year until I was in high school. It was like a month long slumber party every year. And the one movie that Shanna and Chelsea and I used to watch over and over again through out the years is Overboard (someone - I think Shanna - had it on VHS) It's so cheesy, but it always makes me feel happy to watch it. DH got it for me on DVD several years ago because the VHS that I bought when I was in college was totally dying from over use.

    If you could pick one food item to make calorie and fat-free what would it be?
    Just one? I'm a major carb girl, so I'm going to say rice. I could do a LOT with rice if it were calorie free.

    What is your dream vacation?
    I would love to go spend time in Santorini, Greece. My parents went there a few years ago, and the pictures and stories they brought back made it look and sound like paradise.

    How many books do you read in a month?
    Probably 4-5. I think it usually takes me about a week to finish a book, depending on how long it is.

    Do you have any favorite beauty products?
    I love Redkin shampoo and conditioner, but rarely buy it because it's expensive. Other than that, I love Cetaphil products (wash and lotion). They keep my skin very healthy looking.

    Did you grow up in Colorado?
    Nope. I was born in MO and lived there until I was 6. 6-17 I lived in OH. Then at 17 (and a senior in high school ) I moved to CO.

    Do you have any bad habits?
    I sometimes bite my nails, but it is off and on.

    Are you in the career field you always thought you'd be in?

    Surprise! Mary Poppins is coming over to babysit for the weekend. What do you and DH do with your free-time?

    How did DH propose? (or if you are one of those progressive types, how did YOU propose? )

    Haha, no. Actually, I still haven't really decided what I want to be when I grow up, but I don't think that anyone says "I want to work in the merchant processing industry when I grow up."

    Surprise! Mary Poppins is coming over to babysit for the weekend. What do you and DH do with your free-time?
    A whole weekend!?! The mind boggles! LOL Hmmm, maybe go spend the weekend in a little B&B in the mountains.

    How did DH propose? (or if you are one of those progressive types, how did YOU propose? )
    He did awesome. It was my 24th birthday, and he planned a whole perfect day for me. He kind of went overboard, tbh. It was really really romantic. First, he took me to breakfast at my favorite breakfast place. Then, he took me to walk around the Denver Botanic Gardens, which is beautiful. Then he took me to a sandwich place that we both love to pick up sandwiches, and we had a picnic in a really pretty nearby park. We went home and just hung out for a while, and then he took me to get a manicure. Finally he drove me over to this park on the other side of town. The signifigance of this park is that a year before we first started dating, we had gone on a date where we went and got ice cream at this local place that was right next to the park. We walked over to the park and sat in the swings while we ate our ice cream, and very awkwardly, he asked me "Will you be my girlfriend?" I always teased him about that, because it was such a jr high moment. So went went back to that park, and he asked me to be his wife. Very, very sweet.
