Getting to know you

You can blame my sister for this one. I got this in an email forward from her, but I don't like to forward emails, so I thought I'd put it here.
I used to do these silly little survey things all the time, back when I was like in high school (oh that seems so long ago!). But it's been a while since I've done one. So, here we go.

If you want to play along, copy the questions and either send them to all your friends, or you can cop out, like me, and post them on your blog!

The theory is that you will learn a lot of little things about your friends that you might not have known!

1. What time did you get up this morning?
About 8:00, I think. My husband was kind enough to get up with the kiddos so that I could sleep in for a change!

2. Diamonds or pearls?
I'm not sure with this one. I rarely where jewelry to begin with. My wedding ring is mostly a sapphire, but there are a few diamonds surrounding it. I have a pearl necklace too. I guess I should wear it more often.

3. What was the last film you saw?
The last what? It's been so long, I hardly remember!

I'm a big fan of Scrubs. Those guys crack me up!

Cold Cereal and Apple Juice
