1. What is one thing you have too many of in your house?

Too many toys.  I swear… they multiply exponentially when I am not looking.  I keep saying I am going to weed some out, but I never have the time.  Or energy.  

2. Did anything go not quite as planned on your wedding day?

LOL!  Funny you should ask… NOTHING went as planned.  From my caterer having his gallbladder removed during emergency surgery, to our rings not arriving, to our videographer having to cancel because his brother’s kids were brought to him by CPS, to dropping my veil in the mud, to my hair stylist not showing up for the appointment because she was drunk, to showing up at the church 10 minutes before I was to walk down the aisle, to a drunk lady I didn’t know cutting my cake-licking her fingers-and then touching the cake, to my photographer going blind (really!) right after my wedding, to my dad walking me down the aisle with his zipper down… Read the whole story here.

3. What is your favorite summer smoothie recipe?

Any that someone else makes.

4. What is the weather like where you are?

Freaking hot.  Freaking humid.

5. What is your favorite books to read to your kids?

When You Give A Mouse A Cookie.  I do voices and everything.  We also like Alexander and the Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.

  1. Wow, Julia…wishing you many happy years of marriage to make up for that wedding day. Your story takes the finger-licking cake! I didn’t participate in 5QF yet. It was my daughter’s birthday and I got busy with other stuff. Enjoyed visiting your blog. Will return to learn more later…

  2. OMG did all of that seriously happen at your wedding??? You poor thing!!! I completely agree about the TOYS and yes, it’s freakin hot and humid…but we’re on vacation by the pool so I can’t complain too much…:-)

  3. Awesome! Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Every last bit of it. (I am assuming you clicked through and read the entire story. LOL). The Hubs and I even had to stay and help clean up before we leaving for our honeymoon!
