I Was A Drill Sergeant...

1. Do you know what your REAL hair color is?

I do NOW, but there was a time when your guess would have been as good as mine!

2. Do you plan ahead for summer, or fly by the seat of your pants?

I guess a little of both. We usually try to plan a vacation somewhere, but the rest of the summer just kind of goes with the flow. With my new job, I get the month of July off, so I am pretty excited about that--should be plenty of crafting and cooking time, and maybe even some pool time in there.

3. What is your favorite meal to cook?

Its hard to pick just one, but I have this recipe for Mongolian Beef that is pretty hard to beat.

4. Do you get offended by not receiving thank yous?

Hmmm, I try to do stuff without expecting one, but it can get a little annoying when you do something for those who just seem to expect it. And I do think that it is still appropriate for a written Thank You to be sent when you have some sort of shower--baby, wedding, housewarming, etc.

5. How did you meet your best friend?

I met the female half of Team Jacie, who I would say is my bestie, at church. And of course, our friendship grew when I was putting her youngest, Mater through Baby Boot Camp. Apparently, I am somewhat of a schedule Nazi (hey, babies love schedules!), so Mater's Dad would call me a drill sergeant. But Mater is really smart now and well adjusted--when he wins the Heisman or beats the computer on Jeopardy someday, I feel sure he will totally give credit to Aunt Stacie's Baby Boot Camp. (That's my most recent pic of him, ain't he a cutie? He's starting to look like a little boy and not a baby!)

I don't necessarily feel like i need a thank you as an exact form of thanks, but only because I want to know they GOT the gift.

I wish I could plan more but I don't... sometimes when I do and the time gets here I wish I wouldn't have? Not sure about my haircolor but it was pretty boring. Thank yous are nice and I hear my mothers voice when I think about them Schedules, guidelines, rules, structure, and lots of love are good for babies for sure. Hope you enjoy your July. Nice to have freedom to look forward to!
