Wee Bit Wednesday

     I am having a little bit of trouble getting Gwen's stats, lol, so I am saving that post for Friday and linking up with leigh ashley for a new post... hope you enjoy :)

{one} what is your dream job?
does billionaire count?!?  lol.  seriously, it would be a photographer... I love the beauty of photography, I mean, it is really an art, and I think I have a good eye.

{two} how many best friends do you have?
i feel like I have a bunch, but it may be hard for you to understand.  See, in High School, we were a tight, very small group of girls, and even if we don't see each other for a while, when we DO get together, it is like we haven't missed a beat. {Jen (we share the same birthday and could possible share the same last name), Sherri (who God gave me at birth thankfully), Elyse (we switched lunchboxes on accident in Kindergarten and life was never the same since then), and Celia (my BPRS, sorry, only WE know what that means, lol)}.

Then, after high school, I gained two more, and I feel the same way about them. {Jen (such significance in such little time) & Megan (who will soon marry my brother)}

Lastly, I feel that you should ALWAYS marry your BEST FRIEND, so let's add in Jason (who knows me as well as I do, haha).
Therefore, I feel like I am blessed with about 7 or so Best Friends... and each one of them is a reason that I am who I am today.

{three} what is the longest road trip you've ever taken?
minus florida with my parents when I was younger... Montreal with Jen and Megan (now, my future sis-in-law).  It was the best trip!!! I have such amazing memories from it, and don't think that it could ever be replicated.

{four} if you had to do one thing every day for the next year, what would it be?
talk to my grandparents.  you know what?  I want to make this a goal.  I know that every day is a bit unrealistic, but I need to do better.  mam-mom and pop, expect a call tomorrow. :)

{five} what's one story your family always tells about you?
when I was super young (I forget the age) I was in the car with my mom and started reciting the alphabet BACKWARDS.  My poor mother was so freaked out and asked what I was doing... I replied "I was bored, and learned it backwards"... I still know it to this day!!!

{six} how did your parents pick your name?
not really sure about the first name, but Barbara, my middle was BOTH of my Grandmother's names... hence my "name changes" post.  Either way, I love my name, and proud of it.

{seven} what's the one thing in life that scares you more than anything?
illnesses and germs.  I told you I am a hypochondriac, lol.

{eight} are you a good cook?
I am getting to "good"... I take risks and like to try new things, so I can only get better.  And if you ask my husband, he'll always say yes :)

{nine} where do you see yourself in twenty years?
empty nesting.  By then, hopefully both (yes, we are only having two, lol) of our kids will be headed to college, and Jason and I will find new adventures to enjoy.

{ten} what's your best childhood memory?
when I was in the first grade, my parents told me that they were picking me (and my brother) up early and we were heading to meet my Aunt to drop off our video camera (it was 1991, and not everyone had a camera, so we were sharing).  Well, as we were headed up the parkway, they asked if we wanted to go check out the planes at the airport (my brother, now a pilot, loved planes).  Of course we said yes, then as we pulled into the airport, with camera rolling, asked if we wanted to go to Disney World?!?!  It was EXACTLY like the commercials you see today, and it was perfect.
