She’s one of those Alicia Key’s/Nora Jones type singers. I think she was raised in England and performed on Oprah last season. Cherita, (one of my four blog readers) please let me know who I’m talking about!!!

14. Favorite brand of clothing? Banana Republic is my reality but I crave clothing by Tory Burch and Theory.

15. Where would you retire to? Maybe Charleston or a Caribbean island. But hanging around the ATL with the freedom to travel anywhere at anytime ain’t a bad deal either.

43. When was the last time you cried? Before I answer, let me tell you that I am a cry baby. I cry a lot but it’s usually when I’m overcome with joy. (I’ve been hanging around Laura too much). I cry during great campaign speeches or rallies. It doesn’t even have to be the actual candidate making the speech. It could be the candidate’s wife, husband, former baby sitter, or milkman. Heck, it could be Joe the Plummer---well maybe that’s taking it a little too far! It doesn’t matter. If I think the message is sincere and I can relate…I cry. But back to the question: The last time I cried was a few nights ago when Addison was suffering with a bad cold and I couldn’t do enough to make her feel better. The next day I cried (just a few tears of joy) when I looked in the rear view mirror and saw her happily munching on her crackers and dancing in her car seat while singing some cute new song she had learned at school.

44. What is under your bed? One of Aaron’s neat boxes of things.

45. What did you do last night? Organized adoption documents and surfed the internet for that gas friendly car.

46. What are you afraid of? I’m very afraid of Addison or Aaron being injured in some way. I admit that I probably say “Be Careful” more than the average mom or wife.

47. Salty or sweet? It’s perfect when you have a little bit of both.

48. How many keys on your key ring? Six

49. How many years at your current job? Let's just say I've been here long enough for my God daughter to get her driving permit.

50. Favorite day of the week? Friday

51. How many places have you lived in? One state, 12 residences
