    1.  What is your favorite classic movie?
    Newsies without question.  Some people don't know it, but it's a classic in my eyes.

    2.  What extracurricular activities did you do while at school?
    I played soccer my whole life. I wasn't always good lol but I always played on a team since I was 5 all throughout high school.

    3.  If you could relive a year in your life, what age would it be, and why?
    Last year was wonderful with our wedding so that would be a must. And also 2005 which was amazing because that is the summer I met my H and had the best year partying with friends, living life and being comfortable in my own skin..it was fabulous. (and ps. Meaghan, tots stol "H" from you, I like it better than DH).

    4.  Would you rather go to a large party or a small dinner party?
    A dinner party sounds fabulous.  I have a bigger group of friends so every weekend there is always at least 8-10 people over and it's wonderful. One of the many reasons I love owning a house because my friends are always there!

    5.  Plans for the (long) weekend?
    Don't have tons of plans. Plan to have a nice dinner at home to celebrate V-day as we don't have really any extra money to spend so it will be low key.  But I want to get our office and all wedding leftovers organized and plan to have friends over all weekend and just relax. Possibly spin up my Margaritaville...is it 5:00 yet?

    1.  What is your favorite classic movie?
    I am going to have to say Dirty Dancing... I love that movie and have to watch it whenever it is on tv!

    2.  What extracurricular activities did you do while at school? I was big into musicals and plays, I was also a Culinary Major in HS so I did a lot of extracurricular stuff with that

    3.  If you could relive a year in your life, what age would it be, and why?
    Really any year that my dad was still alive would be good just so I could spend more time with him

    4.  Would you rather go to a large party or a small dinner party? Small dinner party. I like it when I can chat with everyone! lol

    5.  Plans for the (long) weekend? my friends and I have an annual president weekend trip to NH. No cell phone reception, great company and lots of adult beverages! It is one of my fav times of year!


    I hope everyone has a great long weekend and all you teachers out there have a great school vacation week too!!!!

    1.  What is your favorite classic movie?

    Can't pick just one....Casablanca, anything Hitchcock or starring Audrey Hepburn, and I love old musicals. 

    2.  What extracurricular activities did you do while at school?

    Wind ensemble, jazz band, chamber singers, show choir, madrigals, marching band, and drama club. I played softball up until freshman year when I jammed my knee. I also dabbled in the literary magazine. 

    In college I mostly focused on the theatre guild, choir and chapel choir. We didn't have a band :(

    3.  If you could relive a year in your life, what age would it be, and why?

    Not sure, every year has it's ups and downs, and some of the great ups coincided with downs....If I ultimately had to choose, it would be 2008. H and I moved in together, got engaged, and my niece was born. It was a pretty awesome year in general.

    4.  Would you rather go to a large party or a small dinner party?

    Small dinner with great friends, family, food and wine. 

    5.  Plans for the (long) weekend?

    H is working tonight, so girls night with Chinese food and wine! Getting my new SS card and opening an account at a new bank in the morning (take that, BofA!), and having a quiet, romantic night in with H on Sunday. And I have Monday off! Woo!

    1.  What is your favorite classic movie? Much to the chagrin of our best buddy who works in movie production, I'm not much of a movie person. I like Disney movies :-)

    3.  If you could relive a year in your life, what age would it be, and why? 2007. One of my last years of college, living on my own in JP, skiing every weekend in VT with friends, and met my husband that summer. It was a good year. Also I was 20 pounds skinnier. Le Sigh.

    4.  Would you rather go to a large party or a small dinner party? We host dinner parties every weekend! But that said, if I could go to a big party somewhere, on someone else's dollar, with dinner and dancing and I could wear a fancy dress, I would totally go. :-)

    5.  Plans for the (long) weekend? Tonight staying in, cooking, watching the Opening Ceremonies. Tomorrow, house hunting and dinner out with friends. Sunday, fancy surprise dinner out with hubby, and Monday I play Wii until I drop! :-) DH is working so I get the house to myself.
