Answer Me This - 5

And, I'm late, but I'm doing it anyway this week. Linking up with the lovely Kendra at Catholic All Year.

1. Do you have a Smartphone?

I do have a "smart" phone. I have an iPhone and have had one for at least three years. I believe I got my first iPhone right before Vincent was born and he is about to turn 3. I love my iPhone. I take good pictures on it, I can connect to anything I want whenever I want and I find that I like that. It makes it simple for me to keep up with my oldest on Twitter and Instagram (she doesn't want a facebook account -- I guess facebook isn't "hip" enough for her, haha).

2. Which is your favorite meal of the day?

I think I'm with Kendra. Breakfast. I could eat breakfast all day long. And I like ALL kinds of breakfast. Cereal, Eggs, bacon, muffins, bacon, bagels, bacon, hashbrowns, bacon, pancakes and....BACON! (Yeah, I really love bacon.)

3. Shower or Bath?

Shower. Hands down. Ever since someone equated baths with swimming in a tub of your own filth, I just can't do baths anymore. I move my kids right on into showers as soon as I can, too.

4. Think of a person you love. How many days have you been in love with that person? (Don't worry, this site will do the math for you...)

Well, I have been in love with Craig approximately 6210 days (I had to guesstimate the actual date I figured I was in love with him, because I didn't, like, write down the day I told him "I love you" the first time or anything. ha!). Craig and I will celebrate 15 years of marriage this July. I'm not amazed because I totally expected to get here. But...it makes me happy nonetheless. :)

5. What's the best church you have ever been inside?

Wow. I think it has to be  St. Martin of Tours parish in Louisville, KY. On a trip back from my Nana's funeral in 2011, we ended up in Louisville in time for breakfast and Mass, so we stopped and went to Mass there. I was quite impressed with the inside and the outside. Beautiful.

6. Happy Feast of the Visitation (on Saturday). Has anyone come to help you?

Well, I have had minimal help over the years. The first baby, plenty of people offered, but I didn't take them up on it because I didn't know I really should. Then, we really didn't need much help when the second child came. My mom came for a bit when #3 was born as she was the first baby I nursed for any length of time and that probably wouldn't have happened without some help early on. #4 was a fairly easy adjustment and no help was offered or needed. Same with #5, although that adjustment was harder than #4.

  1. We live right across the river from Louisville, literally less than 5 minutes away! I haven't been, but my husband loves to go over to St Martin for the Latin Mass.
