1. What is something you have wanted to do but are afraid of?
I will have to be boring and say that I don't have an answer for this one!! I really feel like most things I want/have wanted to do, I have done or I don't feel scared about them! I was really scared to apply to grad school. I hate rejection/feeling like a failure and so it was really hard for me to put myself out there. When I got in it was a huge relief. Now that I am in school, I feel like I SHOULD be there. It's a good feeling :)
2. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Working as a therapist. I see us FINALLY back in Grand Rapids and in a house that we have a long list of projects we are always adding to because I know that that will be fun for John and I :) I see another baby (or two) added into the family... and maybe I'll even be considering opening my own therapy practice by then! It's wild to me that Jack will be in KINDERGARTEN in 5 years... I know it will be here before we know it and I am in no hurry!
Currently drooling over this cute house for sale in Grand Rapids...
3. What are you looking forward to before the end of 2012?
Spending more time at home with my boys. We had a crazy fun summer, but I am looking forward to lazy weekends spent at home before the holidays come around and we get all crazy again!
4. What are your hopes for your blog?
I hope I continue to have time for it! I hope that it keeps on growing and I keep on feeling inspired to write and document our lives.
5. Do you always see yourself living in your current town/city?
Not even for one hot second. I don't really like the side of the state that we live on now. It's really materialistic, hardened, fast-paced, and snobby. John and I both hope to move back over to the West side of Michigan (where I grew up). We think it's a fantastic place to raise a family and it's where my parents are :)
Grand Rapids :)
Depends on the day! But most of the time we are up around 7, I try and get showered/dressed/ready before getting Jack up. I feed him his breakfast while hurrying around trying to eat my own breakfast/drink a cup of coffee/get my school stuff together/get Jack's bag ready for the babysitter. When we are running approximately 5 or so minutes late I try to get Jack dressed and out of the door. It's usually a hot mess around here... we aren't quite used to the whole "up before 8 am" thing yet...
