1.) What is your background? like where are you/your parents/relatives from?
Ancestorally (Ancestorically?) I'm basically a European mutt. German, French, Scandanavian...

2.) whats your favorite thing that gets you going in the morning?

A long walk with my dog on the weekend. During the week, sports talk radio gets my brain going.
3.) what is you biggest phobia?

Centipedes. No. No. No. No.

4.) if you could live off one type of food (italian, chinese, cuban etc.) what would it be?

French - all of the amazing meals I've had have been routed in French cuisine/style. Italian is a close runner up - I'd really be fine with either.

5.) who is someone you really admire?

Such a broad question. Virtually everyone I admire is someone who stood up for what was right in the face of adversity or when it was unpopular to do so.

Re-doing an old one... fun!  I checked back to see if any of my answers (other than the obvious 1st one that wont change :smileywink: ) were the same...

 

1.) What is your background? like where are you/your parents/relatives from?

LOL, that obviously doesnt change!

2.) whats your favorite thing that gets you going in the morning?

I usually have my jambox blasting something I can dance to after I drop off my girls, as I'm getting ready for work.  If anyone came home, they'd catch me singing & dancing around while I'm getting my day started! 
3.) what is you biggest phobia?

Heights, slimy things (slugs, snails, worms) and birds.  More so pidgins.... they give me weird anxiety & I go out of my way to get around them!
4.) if you could live off one type of food (italian, chinese, cuban etc.) what would it be?

I love Italian!  I'm a carb-monster!
5.) who is someone you really admire?

My daughter.  Shes a tough kid, going through a lot.  Her strength makes ME stronger!

1) Family is from Ireland, both sides. 

2) Tea! I love loose leaf teas, so I have like 50 kazillion different kinds. I love the process of making tea, so it puts me in my happy place :smileyhappy: 

3) Spiders and losing my daughter in a scenario I have to control over (morbid and unnecessary I know lol)

4) Indian! My nanny growing up was Indian, so it's my go-to type of food. Plus, "Irish" food is boring... potatoes, anyone?

5) Besides obvious choices like a parent or best friend, my professor from college. She was just... amazing. And really allowed for us to explore our creative side even if we failed miserably. And she applauded our failures, because it meant we tried and learned from it. She has a lot of faith in her students, and I found that refreshing and I loved being around her. Such positive energy :smileyhappy:

OK, I'll play:

 

1.) What is your background? like where are you/your parents/relatives from?

Second generation American on both sides. Families are from Hungary/Austria/Germany and settled in Pennsylvania.

 

2.) Whats your favorite thing that gets you going in the morning?

My shower

 

3.) What is you biggest phobia?

Growing old alone

 

4.) If you could live off one type of food (italian, chinese, cuban etc.) what would it be?

5.) Who is someone you really admire?

I think my maternal grandfather. He left his entire family and came to this country during the early 20s when he was in his early 20s — with just a 6th grade education. He was smart and a hard worker and he did the best he could for his family.

Hi Tuesday!  Even though the day is winding down, I thought I'd hop on for todays fun questions :smileyhappy:

 

1.) What is your background? like where are you/your parents/relatives from?

While my parents were born & raised here in California, and are very Americanized, our ethnicity is Filipino.  Heritage is very important to me :smileyhappy:
2.) whats your favorite thing that gets you going in the morning?

Fresh air.  I love that first bout of crisp air, it always gets me going
3.) what is you biggest phobia?

I'm not sure if its an actual phobia, but roller coasters, cars going extremely fast, driven by someone else... (especially cab drivers!!) The lack of control, it gives me serious anxiety :smileysad:
4.) if you could live off one type of food (italian, chinese, cuban etc.) what would it be?

Italian for sure :smileyhappy:  It is my fave!!
5.) who is someone you really admire?

My mom.  She made sacrifices for me & my siblings, and continues to do so.  I've always had a close relationship with her and I admire the strength she exudes!

Re: Tuesday questions! :)

1.  Both of my parents were born in the same small village in Italy and came to the US when they were young teenagers. 

 

2. Caffeine - either coffee or tea will do!

 

3. Bugs and creepy crawly things.  I don't know why but I freak out if there is one in the house.  T

 

4. Tie between Mexican and Thai. and chocolate... i could definitely live on chocolate :smileywink:

 

5. My dad.  He came to the US on his own without his family as a teenager. He started a business from nothing and built a great life for his family. Hard work and dedication truly pays off.

Re: Tuesday questions! :)

1) My ancestor's came over from England in the late 1500's and, after a few decades in Virginia, went up into the Appalachian Mountains and didn't come down until a couple of generations ago.  There's probably some time in there in which my family tree did not fork.  Redneck, through and through.  (Sorry if that insults anybody.)

 

2) Must...have...caffeine!

 

3) Not being needed

 

4) Italian

 

5) Any strong woman with grace & poise.  We call them Steel Magnolias down here.

Re: Tuesday questions! :)

1. I was born here, but my family is from Romania, and other eastern European countries - my dad's side of the family is 100% Romanian, and my mom's side is from Romania, Hungary, Yugoslavia....

 

2. Honestly, not too much. I'm more of a night person, so I stay up verrry late, and I almost always have a hard time getting up in the morning. However, I love seeing my dogs and cat wag their tails when they first see me in the morning :smileyhappy: .

 

3. I recently developed this crippling fear of walking down stairs in pitch dark. My knees instantly start to buckle and I panic!!

 

4. Thai food!

 

5. Aside from my parents and best friend, I really admire Christine from Temptalia. She is such an inspiration!

Re: Tuesday questions! :)

1.) I'm a 1st generation Californian. My parents are from Philadelphia and my grandparents/great-grandparents resided in Virginia for about 4 generations or so. I'm predominately black and 1/4th Native American (Cherokee on dad's side and blackfoot on my mom's side). For about half of my life I had the worst east coast PA accent despite never living there. It wasn't until a couple people pointed it out that I made an effort to 'fix' it.

 

2.) Coffee, pandora, and water

 

3.) I have the absolute worst fear of dead birds and rodents. I'm talking panic attack bad. It's the silliest thing in the world I know, but you could not pay me enough to pick up either. The funny thing is that I don't mind dealing or seeing larger dead things (dogs, cats...people).

 

4.) Umm...does gourmet vegan food count? Haha I'm not 100% vegan, but always feel like I'm doing my body such a service by eliminating animal byproducts.

 

5.) That's such a difficult question! My family and a lot of my friends for their bravery, kindness, determination, and hard work. They motivate me to be a better person :smileyhappy:.

 

Whimsically yours,

2.) whats your favorite thing that gets you going in the morning? I'd have to say waking up, seeing my kitty, hearing her purr and cuddle with me puts me in a pretty good mood to get up and star the day!

4.) if you could live off one type of food (italian, chinese, cuban etc.) what would it be? Italian.
