Who is the easiest person for you to talk to?
If you could live in any ancient city during the height of the quality of its society and culture, which one would you choose?
What is the most exciting event you’ve ever witnessed?
Hmmm, I'd have to say our wedding. :)
If you were a celebrity, what would you do for a publicity stunt?
I wouldn't say it's a stunt, but I would do as much volunteer work with 3rd world countries. Not to get publicity, but because you seem to have easier access when you're a celebrity.
What do you consider the ideal age to have a first child?
I don't think there is an ideal age really. When a person feels ready and is responsible enough to have a child then that should be the right time.

Well, it happened again. Patrick will be out of town until Thursday, then we are off to Venice!!! I can't believe our first year anniversary is here already! So this week I don't have anything planned. If I come up with something "special" I will post it... so be sure to check back. Have a great week! :)

Heat 3 tablespoons of oil in a very large skillet over medium heat. Add pork chops, in batches if necessary, and cook until golden brown and the center reaches 150 degrees, about 6 minutes per side. The pork chops we bought were thick so after cooking on the stove for about 5 minutes on each side I popped them into the oven at 350 for about 10 minutes. I think this got the juices flowing too. :)

What do you do to cool off when the weather is hot and humid?
Take a cold shower and sit in front of a fan. Great way to get pneumonia!!! LOL
You receive $1,000 in the mail with a letter that says you can only use the money to redecorate one room in your home. Which room do you pick, and what do you buy to spruce it up?
Definitely the guest bathroom. I'd buy a new vanity and lighting. That should be $999.99 haha
