As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

A mom (did that), a teacher, a journalist and for a short time, a fashion designer-I liked to sew clothes for my Barbies when I was in grade school. Well, I didn’t become a journalist, but I have always written, whether it was poems, short stories, blogs, like this one, or my book.


What was your favorite food as a child? Do you eat it now? 

I think it was burgers and fries, as that always seemed more of a treat. We were a meat, potatoes, vegetable, every night kind of family. I still eat and love burgers and fries now. Eating out, you can find some really incredible ones. One of my favorites is from The Cafe in Ames, Iowa! And I really liked this one from Gordon Ramsay’s Burgr in Las Vegas!


If you were invisible, where would you go?

This is a tough one.  I don’t even know. I am not even sure I WOULD go anywhere. I think that IS my answer? There is no where I would go.

Would you rather forget everyone else’s name all the time or have everyone forget your name all the time?

I would rather they forgot mine.  I don’t like it when I forget people’s names. I try to remember, but sometimes it isn’t always easy. I really don’t like when I recognize someone and have no clue as to their name-or sometimes even why I recognize them! Most people don’t forget my name. It is a pretty easy one to remember.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I am grateful for the usual-the ability to see yet another sunrise. I truly love them all and am grateful to be here to see them!


I am looking forward to traveling to Omaha on trip with some of the North Iowa Bloggers. Stay tuned for further posts about our adventures!
