11 things Meme

I am linking up (late) to Paper Mama's "11 things Meme" ... I like doing these types of posts sometimes and it helps my friends & followers to know me better & breaks up the week. These are fun!

My questions to answer:

1. If you HAD to change your name, what would you change it to?
Anything but Skye. I have spent most of my life correcting people in how to spell, pronounce, and oh yes I am a girl (I get "Mr." or referred to as a "he" in the business world all the time if someone doesn't know me) - and of course the most asked question, "Were your parents hippies?" ... Ugh spare me. 

2. Are you a collector of anything?
My house collects dust LOL. Other than that, we have very few "collections" in our house. We have the Waterford Crystal 12 days of Christmas Champagne Flutes which we will probably never get a chance to use... and that's about all I can think of for collecting. My house is too small! 

3. What is your first thought when you wake up?
My mind starts going as to what needs to be done for the day - and then I look in the monitor to see if Julianna is up and can we sleep in a few more minutes? If the alarm goes off, it's set to sports talk, so sometimes I'll sit there and listen to the sports news for a few minutes... Yes I enjoy that stuff! 

4. Do you prefer sweet or salty foods?
Majorly Sweet. Especially now that I'm pregnant - no doubt! Bring on the chocolate! Oh and the Ben& Jerry's ice cream!

5. Name one thing you miss about being a kid.
The innocence and every day happiness of not knowing a world where bad things happen. Oh and, having summer off! 

6. Are you a morning or night person?
Morning. Brian and I turn into sloths at night time. I couldn't imagine going out until 2am or later {gasp} like I used to in my 20's - Ugh! We got home from a Yankee game last year at midnight and I was off kilter for a day or so. I need early bed time - haha! 

7. List 5 items on your life’s to-do list:
Visit Italy 
Become a photographer 
Move south and build a bigger house 
Learn how to cook more Puerto Rican food 
Make more money (that's always on my list! haha!) 

8. Share one thing that people may not know about you.
That I was married at 21 years old (briefly) to a Snake that was 11 years older than me who was a pathological liar. Luckily I got out of that pretty fast and learned a big lesson. Incidentally getting married so young should be illegal , you don't have a clue who you are and what your world as a true adult will be like. At 21, you are still a kid. Live & learn right? 

9. What is your all time favorite song, movie, and book?
Oh there are just too many to name really and I could never narrow it down to just one of each. I will tell you that ever since I was a kid, I loved all the Star Wars movies and have seen them all hundreds of times over the years, and sadly could quote too many Star Wars lines like the nerd I am :) 

Favorite book - Hmmmm - I read a good book recently called The Shack - I usually do not care for spiritual fiction but I have to tell you, it was a fabulous book. It is an incredible book to read that helps you understand why bad things in life happen sometimes. I highly recommend it for everyone! 

10. Do you have any hidden talents?
Um. Not that I'm aware of.

11. Are you a really clean or super messy person?
I would like to think clean. I am anal about cleaning up my house daily but somehow I always think it's a pig-sty and messy because it's so small and we don't have enough storage ever. 

One of the 'rules' is I'm supposed to post a picture of myself... but I think I'll hold off on that for now, as I plan on doing a pregnancy post with pictures next week. Instead, you get a picture of the sunrise in the morning after the pretty snow the other night. It coated each tree branch....

Here is the bracelet my daughter made for me with the help of her grandma. I love it & don't take it off. 

Have a nice weekend! 


  1. I am going to look for that book. I am a morning person too. anything past 10pm kills me. Love your bracelet. enjoy your weekend.

  2. Great post! I love learning more about my bloggy friends! We have some similarities :o) Love both sweet & salty. You really need to try mixing the two. Like honey dew wrapped in prosciutto, or salt on watermelon (seriously, I guess it's common in the south). I, too, am pretty anal about cleanliness. Nothing is ever clean enough for me. I constantly think the house looks like a pig sty but I know deep down it really doesn't (it's a problem) LOL! As long as there is no clutter, I can live with a little dust. Love that bracelet J made for you! What a cutie pie! Can't wait to see your next round of pregnancy pics! Oh, and the way you are going now, I'm sure you will be a photographer in no time :o)

    1. salt on watermelon?? Hmmmm. If I could get past that , I might try it LOL.
      My problem is I need another 4 rooms added onto my house in order to totally declutter haha!


Thank You for taking the time to stop by.
