I heart Mondays

Hello Monday!  Today is a great day for a couple of reasons...  

Reason 1 - It's Spring Break, and I get to hang out with my favorite 7 year old for a couple of days!

Reason 2 - Kasey over All That is Good is back (hooray!) and that means Friend Makin' Monday is back!  Today we're answering some fun questions about ourselves and getting to know each other! Head on over here to get started -- it's so much fun!

What is your blogger name?
Pop Rocks for Breakfast

When is your birthday?
November 27

How long have you been blogging?
Since Sept 13, 2007

Who tagged you?
Kasey at All That Is Good

Tell me your five most favorite body parts.
Yikes!  I've never thought about this. I guess eyes, hair, feet, hands, mouth (since these parts don't accumulate cellulite!)

What do you wish most for your birthday?
A party with lots of friends, great cocktails, and really good party favors

What color are you nails right now?
french manicure

Have you had any depressing thoughts lately?
nope, not one

What’s your plan for the next month?
Work a lot, play a lot, throw a baby shower for Becca, re-carpet the upstairs, and take Easter pictures

At what age did you have your first crush?
I was in the 1st grade and had a huge crush on a senior in my school (private school -- we had all grades).  He knew I had a crush on him and sang a song to me at our school talent show.  (sigh)

Have you attended any school reunions?
Since I graduated HS in Japan, we don't have a lot of organized class reunions.  We did have one for 10 years, which was fun.  We've all connected on Facebook and are trying to get together this summer.

Have you ever passed gas in public and pretended like you didn’t smell anything?
Absolutely.  Or maybe I blamed it on someone else...

Are you a clean freak?
I have not been gifted in this area but am thankful for my friend Norma, who comes every Friday and makes my house sparkling clean!  :-)

What era do you wish you were born in?
This is the perfect one for me!

Are you a vegetarian?
No way, Jose.

How many pillows do you sleep with at night?
One.  It's a fantastic down pillow. 

Are you a light sleeper or a heavy sleeper?
Very heavy sleeper.  I actually don't get much sleep, so when I'm out, I'm completely out.  The house, seriously, could burn down around me, and I would sleep through it.  When Chris travels out of town, and I'm responsible for everything, I do not let myself go to sleep, because I'm afraid the house alarm would go off, or something would happen, and I would sleep through it.

Do you secretly wear granny panties when your man is not around?
No way!  I don't own any -- can't stand big panties!

What is your ultimate dream job?
Owning a totally chic paper store with great letterpress cards and unique invitations

What does your husband do that annoys you the most?
He is really, really cheap.

What is your dream car?
A red convertible

Do you wake up easily in the morning?
No, no, no -- I am not a morning person!

Do you like hairy men?
Only if we're talking about the hair on their head

How about a man with a goatee?
I prefer clean-shaven

Which would you prefer: a two-hour spa massage, a two-hour Thai massage, or a two-hour foot massage?
What's a Thai Massage?  Would I get to go to Thailand??  I'd probably take the spa massage.

Have you ever wished you had a different name? If so, what name?
My parents gave me a horrid first (legal) name that I have never gone by.  It's awful, and I begged them my whole life to change it.  I would change it now if I could.  Actually, I would just delete it.

What is the most extreme sport you have ever done?
White water rafting on vacation -- does that count? (Guessing that cheerleading really doesn't count?!)

Do you prefer traveling in Europe or Asia?
Since we lived in Asia during high school, it would be fun to try out Europe

What is your favorite food?
Burgers and fries

What is your most embarrassing moment while out on a date?
Although I have had my fair share of embarrassing moments, I fortunately can't remember any of them that happened during a date (maybe it's just denial???)


  1. Look at you crusing on older men! And I love french manicures.

  2. Hey Christie,
    Nice to meet you! I love french manicures...did you do it yourself or have a manicure? I've tried myself..not very good!

    I would love to have a house cleaner every week!
    A red convertable that sounds FUN!
    Happy FMM!

  3. Were you military or missionaries? just wondering how you grew up in Japan. That's fun. :)

  4. Awww...that's so sweet that your crush sang a song for you!

    I really loved reading your answers!


  5. did you all travel back to japan for your high school reunion?

    cute story about your first crush ~ have you always crushed on older men? :o)

  6. Hi Christie - you lucky girl. I wish we had Spring Break this week!

    I loved reading your list. I think owning a paper store would be wonderful! I loved that story about your first crush - so sweet!

    Have fun this week!


  7. Cute answers, and I have done the white water rafting scared me to death!!!! But it was fun too!

    Have a great day!

  8. i don't think i've found anyone who knows what a thai massage is. i guess i need to look this one up!

  9. I am curious what your first name is now. My husband has always gone by his middle name and it drives me crazy! It just makes things hard with school stuff when someone hears you call him X but on the paper his name is Y. I feel like I need to write his whole name down so people 'get it'. look at that rambling!

  10. Christie - My parents were going to name me Mary-Margaret...Thankfully, my older siblings intervened and insisted I have a 'J' name like the rest of them. I owe them each millions of dollars....

  11. how cool that you lived in asia. i loved getting to know you better.

    just wanted to remind you my blog has moved to
