1. What is your favorite sign of spring?
The sounds of kids playing outside. My neighborhood comes alive once the temps hit the 40's (hey, it's Michigan -- we don't need much!). Kids on bikes, scooters, playing hockey, out in the park. I can just open one of my doors and hear the chatter of kids. It's really a nice noise after the silence of winter.
2. What was your best birthday ever?
Best? I don't know if I can say best. But, I remember when my mom made me TWO cakes. A bunny cake and a cake that spelled out my name -- so 7 little cakes K-R-I-S-T-E-N. Those cakes were the BOMB.
3. What is your favorite dessert?
Anything involving peanut butter.
4. What is the best excuse you've ever used to get out of a ticket?
Drum roll please...
I saw the lights go on behind me, and started to snicker to myself.
I thought, "No way I'm getting a ticket TODAY."
I pulled over into the nearest parking lot. The police officer walked up to my car as I rolled down the window on my minivan. He peered in the window as I pulled my purse over from the passenger side seat.
I put my purse on my 9-month pregnant belly and reached inside to get my license. The officer looked down at my huge belly and asked "Ummm... where were you driving to?" I let him know I was just going to the store, but I knew he thought he had a woman-in-labor on his hands! I got a polite "please drive slower," and was on my way.
And THAT ladies is a guaranteed way to get out of a ticket!
By the way... my water broke the next day!
5. Do you wake up before your alarm, with your alarm, or after hitting snooze several times?
Snooze. Snooze. Snooze. Snooze. Crap -- what time is it?
