    I'll Bite: 1. Happiest you've ever been: Marrying my husband-- really, not lying.  I was so happy to stand up there, take our vows together, and kiss in front of all our family and friends. 2. Saddest you've ever been: When my uncle steve died.  We called him 'the funny guy.' he was killed taking driving his suv a ittle too fast, and a winn-dixi truck pulled in front of him.  3. Sickest you've ever been: 6 hours after eating a mushroom and cheese pizza from papa ginos.  I still can't smell the pizza from that place without my stomach going into trapeze acts. 4. Broke-est you've ever been: when both my husband and I lost our jobs together in February 2009-- our $2k mortgage kept us motivated, though. 5. Favorite item of clothing you own: can I say ALL my little cocktail dresses?

    Baystate: Two things: Thank God your sister didn't have a brain tumor, wow. Second, I've had Zoster virus stuff too--doesn't it suck? Have you gotten Bell's Palsy (where your face is paralyzed) or just the rashes? I've only had problems once--got the Bell's--am so scared it'll come back. Does it happen when you're stressed?

    1. Happiest you've ever been:  The day we got engaged.  I felt "happier" than the day we got married because it was a day we didn't share with anybody else, it was all about us.  2. Saddest you've ever been:  When my Dad's 2nd wife died after being sick he was so lost and my heart was literally breaking for him.3. Sickest you've ever been:  The beginning of this year I was diagnosed with myasthenia gravis, a neurological disorder.  I am not "sick" but it was scary not knowing why my eye started drooping suddenly and it took 3 months to diagnose.4. Broke-est you've ever been:  When I was 19 and ran up some credit cards... I was so stupid and it took a long time ot pay off.  5. Favorite item of clothing you own:  light pink juicy couture sweatpants.  <3 them.

    1. My wedding day! Happy but of course so emotional at the same time. Rarely in life can you spend an entire day with ALL of your loved ones in one place :-)2. Struggling with depression throughout college---the dull sadness you feel daily for long stretches is by far the worst I have ever had to endure. 3. Got a serious stomach virus when I was living in Utah that was so awful! My whole body hurt and I just cried and cried...FI was just as sick!! It was terrible.4. The third month after I graduated...I had exhausted my savings and hadn't found a job yet! Luckily I found one in month 4. :-)5. This is a hard one, because I have lost a lot of weight and dont really fit into anything anymore. Maybe one of these days I will let EKobs or Evseidl take me cocktail dress shopping and I can snag my new favorite item! :-)

    1. Happiest you've ever been:      The day my FI proposed! I was so taken off guard and in shock all I could do was nervously laugh, and when I saw the ring I was even more shocked and started crying (happy tears lol) 2. Saddest you've ever been:    In 1994 when my grandfather passed away after a brief battle with Pancreatic Cancer he was my world and I was his princess. Then again in 2006 when one of my dearest childhood friends, and the first boy who ever stole my heart passed away after battling a year and half of a rare form of Sarcoma Cancer..he was 29. 3. Sickest you've ever been:    Food Posioning when I was in Disney back in 2000. OMG I literally wanted someone to put me out of my misery! 4. Brokest you've ever been:     I'd say now, but it's not as bad as it could be. I will go with a couple years ago when I was living alone, landlords raised my rent and I had ZERO food in the house. My mom came over and was HORRIFIED! 5. Favorite Item of Clothing you own:      Toss up between my Juicy Sweats and my Levi jeans. Im more of a Handbag girl so can I say the 22 COACH bags in my closet? (LOL I have a problem I know...)

    1. HAPPIEST-having my son, not going to lie though, it was about 2 months after when the hormones calmed down!2. SADDEST-aside from when relatives have passed, I'd say when we moved to Foxboro(I'm from Reading) and realized I'm stuck in an area where I don't know anyone, without a car. But I was pregnant, so hormones again were kicked into overdrive.3.SICKEST-ugh, this past Feb. I had Pleurisy, the most painful lung infection that lasted 6 weeks! 4.BROKEST-um, just about everyday! I just paid off all my debt from maxing out all my CC's when I was 18 shopping at Express!5.FAV-well, at this point, I'd have to say my wedding dress!

    1. The day FI proposed, it was like a dream, and we had it all to ourselves. 2. Feb. - Mar. 2004 In a span of 1 month, my grandfather died, FI's grandfather died, and we had to put my 14 year old dog to sleep. And FI and I had broken up (but got back together!). It was a rough month. 3. Probably the first migraine I ever got a few months ago. I'd never experienced pain like that before. 4. The first 6 months out of college. I was not good with money and racked up quite a bit of cc debt. I'm working my way out of it though, and learned very quickly how to budget. 5. My old jeans.

    Garden --1) Yeah, it was terrifying...the first time she was diagnosed with epilepsy, which is when it all started.  The second time she was in the hospital after having several seizures a week with absolutely no known triggers, and the doctors suspected either a brain tumor or lesions.  But they found nothing.  She's been seizure-free since April of this year :)2) OMG.  No.  I've never had Bell's, thank God.  I've gotten the rash, though, only on my right side, and my body ached like I'd been beaten all over, repeatedly.  Thank God yours went away.  I would be terrified, too, if that happened to me.
