Back in October, I interviewed Scotty for a blog post. Then he decided to interview me for a blog post. He fell asleep 11 questions in (am I that boring?) so we decided to finish the interview later.
That was almost half a year ago, which is a pretty accurate representation of our version of "later."
Today, I found that interview in my draft folder and decided it's time to post... finished or not.
I highly recommend that you interview your spouse once in a while. Just try to stay awake... It makes a difference.
Here are the questions Scotty asked me:
1. Who is your favorite musician or group?
Maroon 5 is definitely up there. I also like Pink.
2. What would you consider to be a perfect date with your husband?
It's not so much about what we do - I think almost any date can be perfect as long as we aren't going to a haunted house. I would love to go on a Disneyland date sometime.
3. What's your dream job?
I would love to be a writer, and I would love to be a choreographer. There's also a part of me that needs to be a professional mascot. The key word is "professional." I don't want to be the Chick-Fil-A cow.
4. What do you consider to be one of the strongest parts of your testimony?
I believe very strongly that there is something more than our earthly existence. A God, a heaven, and life before and after this one.
5. What is your favorite thing to do when you're by yourself?
Depending on my mood - I like to peruse the thrift store or Ross. Pretty much any time I go to the store by myself, it's amazing! Sometimes it's nice to just read a book or take a nap. I'm becoming a napper in my old age. Ha ha!
6. If there was one thing you could teach somebody, what would it be?
I'm not saying I'm capable of this, but if I could choose a topic to throw my heart into, I would love to teach marriage and family classes. I would love to teach preventative courses to help marriages succeed from the beginning so they do not require intervention later.
Update: This is actually happening! I wrote a workshop on happiness in motherhood and am currently teaching it. I am also signed up to become a facilitator for a marriage preparation program, and I will also be piloting a workshop curriculum for an organization beginning in April!
7. If you could pick a dream car, what would it be?
I just want a really awesome van with all the bells and whistles. (Scotty is not convinced that this should be my answer, but I'm for real!)
8. What is one of the hardest things you've ever had to do?
Dealing with some family circumstances.
9. Growing up, what was one of the funnest things to do with your friends?
Sing and dance. Some of my best memories involve turning a song on and going wild.
10. Who is your favorite actor?
I really have a lot. I like Matt Damon, Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Tom Hanks, and Michael Caine - to name a few. There are a lot of actors I like.
11. What's something you can't live without (excluding food and water)?
My cell phone, quality chapstick, and pen and paper.
