wee bit wednesday {2}

Linking up with Leigh Ashley this week for Wee Bit Wednesdays




{one} what is your dream job?
Have my own event planning business, cupcakery, and fashion design. wondering how I can combine them all. . .

{two} how many best friends do you have?
So of course my all time best friend would have to be my sister, she just knows me better than anyone and yet wont take any crap from me either. But if were talking about non-related bfs then i would have to say that all my girls who were in my bridal party (5) would make the cut
From left to right: Helen (bf I met through my hubby), Erin (bf who grew up next to me since I was 2yrs old, and currently we live 2 blocks away form each other), Stephanie (bf from high school), Francine (bf from college), Me, Sister Denise (bf from always), Mom Donna (surprisingly I consider her one of my best friends as well), and niece Jenna (luv her, and as she grows up she has no choice but to be part of my little group lol)

{three} what’s the longest road trip you’ve ever taken?
Well as Ive mentioned before, growing up with a family absolutely paranoid with flying, Ive been on many roadtrips during the summer from South Florida to the Jersey Shore. But Id have to say that my most recent trip from South Florida to Tennessee to New Jersey to Conneticut and back to South Florida, a total of 10 days with 3 boys has been my longest and most fun road trip yet. You can read about it here, here, and here with I think one more post that has yet to be published.

{four} if you had to do one single thing every day for the next year, what would it be?
Take pictures. Im not a professional photographer or anything, but lately I have been taking pics of everything. I like that I can look back and see all the things I did over the past couple of months. And hopefully when I get old and grey my grandkids can look back and say that their grandma was pretty cool when she was younger. lol

{five} what’s one story your family always tells about you?
This one is actually kinda gross. When I was little (like really little) my nickname was "barf bucket" (told ya it was gross) because I never could really keep my food down (no problem with that today). Well my sister is 6 years old than I am, and basically I was her play doll. She would play house with me as the baby. Well one day my sister was playing Airplane with me. You know the one where the person is lying on their back and holding you up with their legs? Well my mom had just fed me and told me sister  "You shouldnt do that, she just ate." Well my sister didnt listen and guess what happened? I puked. And since I was directly above her it went directly below me. In.Her.Mouth.... I know gross, but its something that for some reason my family feels as though they need to share with everyone. So, yep, just shared it with you all....

{six} how did your parents pick your name?
My name was actually supposed to be Christine since my bday is so close to Christmas (Dec 17th for those of you already thinking about getting me a present *wink*wink*) but my dad didnt like the name. So they decided to choose Lisa after one of my moms best friends (my sister Denise is also named after one of my moms best friends) and my middle name is Marie, just like my moms.

{seven} what’s the one thing that scares you more than anything?
I have this fear that I am going to get into an accident while driving on the highway in the rain. Like it gives me nightmares. Im not sure how to make this go away.... :(

{eight} are you a good cook?
HA! funny! umm no, i dont cook. Ive actually caught the stove on fire twice trying to make mashed potatoes (nobody told me that the milk froths and overflows) but I do bake! (yes there is a total difference between cooking and baking)
Thank god my hubby loves to cook though. Otherwise we would definitely be starving. My mom also got me a crock pot for christmas that she says I should be able to use and "set it and forget it" lol. We'll see, it still hasnt been taken out of the box....
p.s. I can also dial a mean pizza number. . .

{nine} where do you see yourself in 20 years?
Hopefully many more promotions, at least 2-3 kids, a bigger house, and traveling more with my family (a girl can dream right?!?!)

{ten} what’s your best childhood memory?
My grandparents from NJ used to live with us 6months out of the year during the winter time. I always loved spending time with them doing the simplest things. Every Saturday morning my grandma and I would wake up and go garage sale-ing. She would by me high heels and barbies for basically nothing. On Sunday mornings I would sit on the kitchen table (not sure how I got away with this, because literally I would sit on it, not at it) and help make biscuits for breakfast. We would put the flour all over the counter and we would make them from scratch. Once they were done, I remember I would always split mine with my grandpa. He would take the outsides (the hard part) and would take the fluffy part our of it and give it to me. Funny how I remember that so vividly.
