11 Questions.

It's nap time and I feel like blogging (instead of doing the Jillian Michaels yoga that I should be doing) but can't think of anything right this second to write about so I'm playing along with  The Paper Mama         and answering these 11 questions.

1. If you HAD to change your name, what would you change it to?
I always loved my sisters name growing up, I was jealous that she got TWO Swedish names and I didn't even get 1. So I would pick her name, Camilla Cecelia. 
2. Are you a collector of anything?
I like to collect souvenirs from Sweden every time we go back. And other little nicknacks from everywhere we travel. 
3. What is your first thought when you wake up?
4. Do you prefer sweet or salty foods?
Both! I really can't pick just one! I love salty potato chips. But love chocolate and ice cream as well. 
5. Name one thing you miss about being a kid.
Being with my siblings/parents all the time. We had so much fun together all the time. Being far away from my family is Hard! 
6. Are you a morning or night person?
I can be both! I apparently don't need a whole lot of sleep anymore. I can wake up super early (up by 6 most day) and can stay up late. 
7. List 5 items on your life’s to-do list:
Move to Sweden.
Finish college.
Rent an RV and drive through out the states
Become awesome at yoga.
8. Share one thing that people may not know about you.
I want a whole bunch of babies. If money/health/space wasn't an option I think I'd want like 10!
9. What is your all time favorite song, movie, and book?
Oh damn this is so hard!
Song- either Fix You by Coldplay or Flake by Jack Johnson
Movie- You've Got Mail, Pretty Woman or Sound of Music
Book- I honestly don't think I can answer this one! Maybe any Jodi Piccoult book? I love to read but rarely read the same book twice. 
10. Do you have any hidden talents?
I don't think so? Lame. Thought when I used to bartend I was able to tie a knot in a cherry stem in my mouth, but haven't tried that in years so I doubt I would still be able to. Plus it took me like 7 minutes. 
11. Are you a really clean or super messy person?
I like my home clean but hate to the act of cleaning. If you say you actually ENJOY cleaning, I think you are either a liar or cray cray. I am Decent at keeping my home clean but I would like to be way better. It's definitely a goal of mine. It's a lot harder with multiple children for sure!

Let me know if you play along and answer the questions! 


  1. Love these questions! DO the Jillian yoga tape... I love her workouts and I don't feel badly about not being that flexible because she isn't either! She sometimes actually gets "mad" at the other women in the video because they are more flexible than her, it is hilarious!

    1. I did like half of it yesterday and my abs and arms are killing today! I just need to power through. Did you see a result doing it?

    2. Yes, the tape has definitely made me stronger. Although it is a yoga tape, it is one of the most dynamic and amazing strength workouts I have done in a while. When you get a chance, do her " Banish Fat Boost Metabolism Workout" (ridiculous name, great total body workout). On youtube you can also find her entire "30 day shred" series which I like even better because it completely kicks your butt in only 25mins, even if you do it without weights!

      PS. You need to try hot yoga. It might seem intimidating but I did it through my entire 1st and 2nd trimester and it really relaxes your muscles.

      haha. NOW I see that you ask us to answer the questions, here it goes...

      1. This is a toughie because I really like my name but I would have to go with Charlotte.

      2. I don't collect anything right now...any ideas?

      3. "What time is it?"

      4. Let me preface this with, I LOVE TO EAT! I usually eat very healthy foods but I am sucker for some salty Cheetos! And chocolate : )

      5. I miss playing just for the sake of playing, which I do get to do a little bit with my son.

      6. Oh yea, I am a NIGHT OWL...it is genetic. BUT my son is curing me of that ; )

      7. Graduate from DU!!!
      Make and develop some true and lasting friendships
      Travel to Israel
      Complete a marathon
      Start my career

      8. I sometimes enjoy being around new people more than people I already know.

      9. Song: Gosh, anything by Ella Fitzgerald or Billie Holiday or the Civil Wars ha!

      Movie: The Sound of Music, EVERY TIME I watch it, it literally fills my heart with joy and I MUST sing every word. I must also say this is tied with "My Fair Lady", can I please be Audrey Hepburn?

      Book: Little Women, it is a classic!

      10. I always whip out "doll eye". I have strangely good eye lid control and can close my eye by just moving my eye lid and no other eye muscle, like a doll.

      11. I am a reformed slob! In high school it was bad, like couldn't see my floor because of all the clothes on it bad. I was never dirty, just messy. NOW ever since becoming married and having a child, I like a clean and organized house. I am not obsessive but I keep it pretty clean.

    3. I'm super afraid of hot yoga! Hot rooms make me nauseous but I do want to try it sometime! Yay on number 7!! When are you guys heading out this way?? And so awesome you like Sound of Music also!! And YES on number 11 also! Ha!

    4. I felt the same way about hot rooms BUT the key is a great yoga studio. I haven't been for a while but there is a "perfect temp" that they recommend. If the instructor is good, the movements will be calming so you won't be freaked by the heat... Hopefully we will be moving out in June. Depends on if the hubbs needs to take a summer class but for sure before the end of summer. Double YAY for Sound of Music, have you had Jasper watch it?

    5. Yay you will have to let me know when you do!

  2. Reԁucе heat; simmeг, uncoverеԁ,
    for 35 to 40minutes or to desіrеd conѕiѕtency, stirring ocсasionally.

    Afteг yοu've got the crust rolled out, transfer it to your pan or pizza stone. One of the main attraction to these convection toaster ovens are the big bright digital display counters that keep time when not in use.
