I need a distraction...  I need to give my final numbers to my venue tomorrow, and I have a few questions to ask of my contact at the venue before I can even tabulate the numbers, and she's on vacation today. (HOW DARE SHE TAKE A VACATION 2 and a half WEEKS BEFORE MY WEDDING?!?!)  just joking :) 

But anyway...  May brides..  Help me to be distracted!!

    What was your favorite children's book?

              Grimm's Fairy Tales, we used to have a GIANT book of them and my sister and I would always be reading it.

    What is your first childhood memory?

              When I was 2 or 3 (before my sister was born) I can remember my dad holding me in the kitchen talking to my mom while he was stuffing his pipe.  I told my mom about this memory and she was shocked I remembered, my dad quit smoking his pipe when I was 3.

    What type of kid were you (e.g. spoiled, rebellious, well-behaved, quiet, obnoxious...)?

              I was the first, so my parents were more strict with me, even though I tried to misbehave I got caught every time  haha  I did really well in school and so far I'm the only one to graduate college. (I have two siblings, the youngest is 22)

    What is one thing you miss about being a kid?

              Everything being so simple.  We would just play.  I'd run down the street to my friend's house, knock on the door and ask, "can tiffany play?" and that's what we'd do... all.day.long.

    What did you want to grow up to be when you were younger?

              I used to want to be a nurse like my mom, or a vet because I loved animals.  I ended up being an engineer... haha  not close at all :-P
