    I am going to answer our own questions, you might like to know some of this stuff about us!

    If you could marry any celebrity in the world, who would it be, why, and what would you name your children? ... I would still probably want to marry Justin Timberlake. I know that's like way 2001, but I still love him and think that he is sexy as hell - hmmm. children: Lucas, Alex, Brice

    If you could drink your favorite beverage with your favorite person, who would it be and what would you drink?
    I would drink Diet Dr. Pepper with a touch of Captain Morgan with my wedding party - they are all my favorite people!

    If you were to dye your hair, what color would you change it to and who would you remind yourself of?
    I would dye my hair really really blonde to emulate Carrie Underwood. I love her color.

    If you were able to spend $1,000,000 in one store, which store would it be?
    Wet Seal more than likely - I just can not seem to get away from that store at my ripe age of almost 24.

    If you were thinking of getting engaged or are, or are married, what type of ring would you prefer or purchase?
    The freakin' ring I have on my finger - Princess cut, white gold, with 2 emerald diamonds, and 2 triangular diamonds - we should post a pic of it!

    What color bridesmaid gowns should Career Woman pick for her bridal party? Hint: This is a summer wedding.
    I don't know, that's why I am asking... Possibly a purple, send pictures if you'd like!

    Think of a person that you despise...got one?...how could you make their life a living hell?
    The Bug-Eyed bitch - please refer to previous posts.

    What is your favorite color to look at and what is your favorite color to wear?
    To look at: Purple, to wear, blueish

    Do you love A Career Woman and a Housewife? Why?

    oh! you are FUN!
    1. I would marry Noah Wylie, because nobody else looks cuter in scrubs!!!! Um, our children's names? Matthew, Scott, and I can't think of a girl's name.

    2. My favorite beverage would be really cold, sweet iced tea, hold the lemon. And it would be with - my mom! I love my mom!!!!

    3. If I were to dye my hair, my sister would have a heart attack! But, I 'd go back to blonde(er), probably just highlights. And I would remind myself of Paige Davis. I get that a lot. Insanely a lot. I hate it.

    4. I would totally spend that money at the Scrapbook Corner! (or Ann Taylor, do I have to pick just one!?!)

    5. Oh! Rings! Pretty shiny things!!! I would prefer a white gold, princess cut huge honker of a diamond, with two smaller princess cut emeralds on the side (or they can be in the wedding band, whatever)!

    6. Um, pink! This is a cute dress: http://a6.dessy.com/index.cfm?go=dresses
    and so is this one!
    http://a6.dessy.com/index.cfm?go=dresses&style=A6241

    7. hahahahha! LOVE the question! All I would have to do is either read their journal or their profile (they can tell when i do - IP addresses are amazing at that!), and they get all ticked off and call me and yell at me. seems like this person is a bit paranoid, eh?

    8. Pink and pink!! (and orange too!)

    9.I LOVE CW and HW! Because we have to be realted in a former life!

    Damn CW, next time you do this -let me know...there are some questions that I would like to ask our readers! :) My turn next week!!

    If you could marry any celebrity in the world, who would it be, why, and what would you name your children? NO CELEBRITY could take me away from Big Daddy LOVE HIM, LOVE HIM, LOVE HIM!

    If you could drink your favorite beverage with your favorite person, who would it be and what would you drink? Erin, you took the words right out of my mouth! Only we prefer unsweetened sun tea!

    If you were to dye your hair, what color would you change it to and who would you remind yourself of? HMMMM, I'd like to go blonde, just to see what it's like...I don't know who I would remind myself of...when I was little everyone used to call me Mariah Cary BUT now, (with my brown hair when it's curly) all my aunts insist I look like Melina Kanakaredes, I don't really see it...the only thing I see is that I look like a drag queen if I wear too much make-up.

    If you were able to spend $1,000,000 in one store, which store would it be? WHY TOTTURE ME THIS WAY! I can't even put myself through the stress of answering it!

    If you were thinking of getting engaged or are, or are married, what type of ring would you prefer or purchase? Well...the ring I have isn't all that big but it get's in my way...if I had a huge ring I probably would hate it! I'm always catching and snagging and ruining things with my ring, beside I wouldn't trade it for the world, it may be small but it's filled with lots and lots of love!

    What color bridesmaid gowns should Career Woman pick for her bridal party? Hint: This is a summer wedding. I really really liked that bright fuscia colored one that you picked out way at the biginning. It's very summery and it's different.

    Think of a person that you despise...got one?...how could you make their life a living hell?
    Well Pastor Fred Phelps is at the tip-top of my poopie list this week...I would like to rally up every gay person in the world and make them camp out on his front lawn.

    What is your favorite color to look at and what is your favorite color to wear? I really like all shades of green but I think I look best in white.

    Do you love A Career Woman and a Housewife? Why? You betcha! I have so much fun writing on this blog and have met some really great people!

    -Housewife

    I really don't feel good, so I really don't feel like working- so I'm going to do your little thingy!

    1. Derek Jeter (can't help it, I love 'im)!!! Why? Two words- Baseball Pants. Our children would be twin girls named Alexa and Allyson so we can call them Lexi and Ally (don't tell Matt that our children's names are also mine and Jeter's children's names...)

    2. I have two answers to this- first, I would drink milk shakes (does that count?) with my Matty on a hot summer day and second, I would drink beer with Career Woman and Housewife because I miss those days SO BAD!

    3. I would change my hair to blonde to look like Brittany Spears (what do you think Morg?)

    4. Well, right now I would have to say Lezzer Lumber, or some furniture store or something like that since we are getting ready to start building our house.

    5. I love the ring Matt got me because it was from him and he picked it out all by himself, so I can't think of any other ring that I would want. But it's a princess cut, square, with a wide band with 8 princess cut small diamonds going down the sides.

    6. I think you should go with purple because it's such a pretty summery color, plus it's one of your favorite colors. Also, I can't think of any one that would look bad in purple. AND, oh my goodness, the flowers and accent colors that you could do... BEAUTIFUL!!!

    7. I honestly can't think of someone that I despise, but if I did have someone, I would kill them with kindness.

    8. My favorite color to look at is pink, any shade. My favorite color to wear is green or black.

    9. I love Career Woman and Housewife more than words could say! Why? What a list! Whenever you have a problem, who are the two first in line to defend your honor? Who makes you feel better when you are having a crappy day? Who makes you feel pretty and skinny when you feel all but pretty and like a tank? Who is there to help you with ANY thing you need, even if it's not something they prefer to do? Who's there to make you laugh when you're crying? Who was always there to make sure you were confident on first dates, excited to hear about those first dates, and there for you when those first dates didn't turn into second and thirds? Who was there to bash the ex boyfriends that lied, cheated, and broke your heart? And after bashing them with you, who was there to support you when you decided that they weren't such bad guys anyway and needed to be back with them? Who was always there to make sure you didn't have toilet paper on your shoe, hair sticking up, green stuff in your teeth, bad breath, out of style clothes, or your skirt tucked into your underwear? Who was there to borrow clothes from, get makeup advice from, and help you when you just got that "new" hair cut that was all but what you wanted? Who was there to go shopping with even when they had better things to do? Who are two of my closest friends that still love me even after knowing me as well as they do? Who are two of the most beautiful bridesmaids that I have in my wedding that I would never walk down the aisle without being there?

    ****Yep, I love them!****

    AWE K PAC, your bringing tears to my eyes. I never realized we meant so much, I just thought we were Obsessive Bitches that strive for perfection. DAMN. :)

    1. If you could marry any celebrity in the world, who would it be, why, and what would you name your children?

    I can not think of a female celebrity with whom I could stomach more than a few hours. I like my kids names now: Ava Eileen, Alexis Riley and Mira Rhea (pronounced Ray).

    2. If you could drink your favorite beverage with your favorite person, who would it be and what would you drink?

    Iced Tea with my father.

    3.If you were to dye your hair, what color would you change it to and who would you remind yourself of?

    I don't think I want to change. If it was for fun, I think purple.

    4. If you were able to spend $1,000,000 in one store, which store would it be?

    Wal-Mart or Target of course. They have everything from food, to clothing, to diapers, to electronics, DVD's, CD's and so on.

    5.If you were thinking of getting engaged or are, or are married, what type of ring would you prefer or purchase?

    I got married young, and I sold my car stereo and bought the only ring I can afford. If she wouldn't accept a ring given out of love, she doesn't deserve me.

    6.What color bridesmaid gowns should Career Woman pick for her bridal party? Hint: This is a summer wedding.

    I will leave this to the ladies.

    7. Think of a person that you despise...got one?...how could you make their life a living hell?

    Make them pay child support.

    8.What is your favorite color to look at and what is your favorite color to wear?

    Purple and green are fav colors but no fav to wear.

    9.Do you love A Career Woman and a Housewife? Why?

    It's a great blog which is lots of fun to read. I can even make fun of people they talk about even though I have no idea who they are. I think we need to get a candid photo of Roly-Poly on the blog sometime.

     
  • At 10:18 AM, Blogger A Career Woman and A Housewife said…

    Okay Okay - see wasn't that fun! Housewife I was planning on calling you to add some, but figured you'd do that on your own through the blog - it's not too late, but come up with more, on your own or whenever - these are always fun!

    MommaK, I appreciate it, I want to be tagged! And you're awesome too...

    Erin, what can I say - love ya like you're my own!

    KPac - R U cute enough? 'um love you and you're stuff - P.S. I won't take pink because I know you are thinking that - dont worry! :)

  • At 11:21 AM, Blogger A Career Woman and A Housewife said…

    Doug,
    LOVE your girls names...so so pretty! I tossed AVA in the air a few times while I was pregnant with my first one, I was gonna name her Ava Nicole (Nicole after, ME) :) But then decided on Isabella which is a good thing cause the name fits her perfect!
    I bet they're just as beautiful as their names.
    I agree...we definately need pics of ROLY-POLY...CW, get a frickin' camera already...or at least just use the one you already have...we need visuals here!

    Momma K, you rock too!

    Erin, you already know we're like soul sisters or something.

    -Housewife

     
  • At 12:49 PM, Blogger KE said…

    1. Vin Diesel - no kids, thanks :)

    2. Well it depends on the mood. Either Beer with Scottie the hottie (and keep 'em comin) or Captain and Diet Coke/Dr. Pepper with Miss Career Woman.

    3. Um, well there was this blond girl who dances for Justin Timberlake that I really liked her bouncy curls. So I guess blond to look like her.

    4. Bloomingdales (Oh, would I go NUTS! woohoo Coach shoes and bags!)

    5. Gold with 1 GREATBIG princess-cut

    6. Purple, duh.

    7. Adopt her son as my own... but that would definitely come back to bite me in the ass. So it won't be happening.

    8. Look at? Purple. Wear? Brown

    9. Uh Ya!! LOVE YOU SO MUCH! Because you're my best friends!! KPac covered the details and I agree with her!
    p.s. I miss you.

    Ah this is a good one!

     
  • At 9:08 AM, Blogger TrueJerseyGirl said…

    I have tagged BOTH of you on a meme at my site today. Go. Do it now.

     
  • At 9:13 AM, Blogger TrueJerseyGirl said…

    And here are my answers:
    If you could marry any celebrity in the world, who would it be, why, and what would you name your children? I wouldn't ever leave Hub, but if he didn't exist I would marry Jon Bon Jovi of course, and our children would be Zachary and Alaina and Mariella.

    If you could drink your favorite beverage with your favorite person, who would it be and what would you drink? I would be sipping margaritas with Hub and my bf Patsy.

    If you were to dye your hair, what color would you change it to and who would you remind yourself of? I am constantly dyeing my hair and it never reminds me of anyone.

    If you were able to spend $1,000,000 in one store, which store would it be? Nordstroms on shoes.

    If you were thinking of getting engaged or are, or are married, what type of ring would you prefer or purchase? I LOVE my rings - big marquis shaped diamond with diamond baguettes on the sides, and my band is all diamonds. Hub did good.

    What color bridesmaid gowns should Career Woman pick for her bridal party? Hint: This is a summer wedding. I got married in may and had light blue dresses - fresh and springy, and flattering on everyone. They were a huge hit.

    Think of a person that you despise...got one?...how could you make their life a living hell? I don't have time in my life to worry about people I hate.

    What is your favorite color to look at and what is your favorite color to wear? Look at: pink. Wear: black.

    Do you love A Career Woman and a Housewife? Why? Of course! Why else would I come here every day? Its nice to see two chicks keep in touch via their blog and let everyone else in on the fun.

    I think you should ask the following:

    If there were 5 people throughout history you could bring into the future and have dinner with, who would they be and why?

     
  • At 10:31 AM, Blogger kpac4smiles said…

    Hi Doug!

    I don't have 5 people... BUT:

    1. I would bring back my grandfather (I know he's not history, but my history) because he was the greatest man ever!

    2. Marlyn Monroe (sp)- I want the real story...

    3. George Washington- I want to know what it was really like back then, I want to see his wooden dentures, and powdered wig.

     
  • At 11:00 AM, Blogger Doug said…

    I would have to say:

    1. My grandmother: I didn't get to enjoy the time I spent with her before she passed away since I was only 15.

    2. Jesus: How could you NOT want a chance to talk to Jesus. Even if you don't beleive in him, wanted to know why so many people did would be inspired.

    3. Shakespeare: I just want to know what makes that man think. Anyone who can write the masterpeices he did has got to have a mind worth picking.

    4. King Arthur: I know people don't beleive he really existed but the legends had to come from someplace. I want to meet the man the legends sprang from and I may be dissapointed, but it would be worth it to know the truth.

    5. Cleopatra: This may sound sexext but I need a woman to round out my assortment and I think she is one of the most interesting female historical figures. (it was a toss up between her and Joan of Arc).

     
  • At 12:00 PM, Blogger kpac4smiles said…

    You are right... I would def want to meet Jesus. Let's all hope that we get to meet him in the end anyway!

     
  • At 2:11 PM, Blogger Gill said…

    Hi, your blog is my 'blog of the day' today over on http://sometimesitspeaceful.blogspot.com/

     
  • At 2:26 AM, Blogger LĂ©onie said…

    I would marry Zach Braff -he's just so damned funny and cute and quirky. And arty and clever and interesting. I would name my children... erm.. not sure. I can't imagine having children! Although if Zach wanted to practise that might be ok..

    I would drink Champagne, with my BEST FRIEND in the world, Jenny. I miss her..


    I would dye my hair (which is already dark with a fringe)darker with a dramatically shorter fringe - a la Catherine Zeta Jones in Chicago.


    If you were able to spend $1,000,000 in one store, which store would it be?
    Which store? To spend $1,000,000? Oh I have NO idea. Maybe Urban Outfitters? Or I could cheat and say Harrods or Selfridges because they have EVERY shop in them. Yes, I'll say.. Selfridges in Oxford Circus, London.

    Rings. If I could get some poor (read: lucky) fellow to marry me (or even take me out for a drink: sob) I would want an elegant but stylish and different and diamond encrusted and pretty and VERY sparkly ring. Hmm.. demanding, moi?

    I think Career Woman should have lilac-y (but in a nice way) dresses.

    I despise my FUCKWIT of an ex-boyfriend. And I couldn't make his life a living hell because he has forgotten who I am. Maybe that's why I despise him..

    I like blue-green to look at and to wear. I wear black a lot as well though.

    I DO love Career Woman and a Housewife. Because they're lovely lovely people and funny and fun and cool.
