You had questions, I've got answers

I had so much fun reading all of your questions from last week. Even though I spend a lot of time blabbing about Jus & my life I know that there are important things I've forgotten to fill you in on.

So without further ado...

What is your favorite thing about where you live?
I have a couple of favorite things. Living in our hometown we get to see family a lot which is wonderful. Our town is very friendly and somewhat progressive. In the last couple of years our downtown has undergone a revitalization and there are lots of cool shops & restaurants that Jus & I frequent.

What was the best part of your wedding day?
The whole week of our wedding was wonderful, I was totally overwhelmed by the love our family & friends showed by coming thousands of miles to spend our day with us.
On our wedding day, in particular I loved our first look, it was so nice to be able to see Jus alone and he was so incredibly sweet and said things to me that I'll always keep to myself. We both loved the parade from the ceremony to the reception, it felt like we were floating down the street!

What's your favorite meal of the day?
Dinner, when Jus & I started dating that was the only time we had alone together and I've continued to enjoy my time with him.

When do you think you and Jus will have kids...if you're planning on having kids-so I guess the question is, do you plan on having kiddies? And if so, when?
We are planning to have kids, if we're so blessed. But we're planning for on waiting a while. We've been saying about 5 years for about 3 years now so I'm not entirely sure when we'll be ready but we're definitely going to make sure the Behemoth is finished first.

Did you decide on a name for your Event/Wedding planning business?
Not yet. I've been trying to think of a name but have been stumped, I'm open to suggestions if you have an idea.

What is your favourite room thus far in the Behemoth?
We spend most of our time in our bedroom right now and I really like it, but my favorites are probably the living room & the powder room.

Is Jus's name short for Justin?
Yes, and Cole is short for Nicole. Everyone that is close to us calls us Jus & Cole and that's what we refer to each other as, as well.

What is your favourite thing about having parents own a restaurant? 
I've been meaning to do a post about my parent's restaurant so I might have to delve in a little further later on. I love working for my parents, I'm very close to my mom & dad and love being able to see them  every day. I also love that I do much of the baking because I get to play around with new recipes.

Least favourite?
The toughest part is that I've grown up in the restaurant and so a ton of our regular customers know my whole life story. There are also times I feel lame cause I'm living in my hometown working at my parents restaurant when I thought I'd be living a different life.

If you could live anywhere ELSE in the world where would it be and why?
On an island. I would love to have a bar on the beach or a wooded island in the north. Or maybe Milwaukee, Jus & I really like Milwaukee.

What would you do if you won the lottery?
I'll assume I'm winning multi millions here.
First I would pay off all of our debt & our parent's debts. I would make sure Banan & Jus's brother could attend as many years of school as possible. I would make sure to save enough to be set in our later years and donate some to good charities.
I would also take Jus on an amazing vacation and buy one thing that was a total splurge (like a pair of shoes that cost $1000)

Dog, cat, or other?
We have 2 dogs (Layla & Edie) & a cat (Jack). I love the dogs the most (don't tell Jack). Growing up we had horses, potbellied pigs, a llama, goats, chickens, & emu.

0 babies or 5 babies?
0 babies, unless we adopted. I feel pretty strongly about not overpopulating the world any more than it already is so 2 is my ideal number but if we could afford to adopt more & have the time and love to share I could probably swing 5.

Do you sleep on your stomach, back or side?
Usually my side, sometimes my back.

What do you like about yourself?
Physically I like my eyes & smile. I also like that I am basically good and happy and tend to see the best in everyone.

What is the most rewarding thing about having your event business?
I love the response I get from the brides. I loved planning our wedding and hearing from brides that are totally overwhelmed makes me a little sad for them so I like to be able to help them enjoy their planning process.

What is your favorite thing to do when you're alone?
I love to go thrifting & shopping, blog hop, or read.

What is your favorite band/artist?
Grace Potter & the Nocturnals is my all time fave. Grace is pretty amazing.

What is the most embarrassing thing you've ever done?
Eek, I'm not entirely sure, I'm sort of a foot in mouth kind of gal so I do embarrassing things all the time.

If you ever have questions for me be sure to drop me an email & I'll get back to you!

You had an EMU? That's kind of awesome, hehe. Thanks for answering all these questions, it was great getting to know more about my little sis.

Amanda said...

those are some good questions, and good answers! i love your eyes by the way! And I am totally with you on the overpopulating thing! We've been saying 5ish years for 2 years now, ha ha...some things just take time right?

Emma9405 said...

Great questions! And answers. I LOOOOOOVE Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. One of the best shows I ever saw was them with Brett Dennen opening. Awesomesauce.

Good ones! Neill and I have both been saying "in five years" for the last few years too! except recently i've started to say in one or two years and he is still saying in five years!

I love all the pets that you've had! I just had a dog, cats, and hampsters.

Also.. both my parents were/are pastors.. when they were still together, they jointly preached at the church next door. Even though I haven't lived at home for about 8 years now, people there still know every. little. thing. about my life. On one hand it's nice to know I'm loved and remembered, but on the other hand it can be craziness.. so I feel for you!
