Interview of sorts...

The wonderful Milk and Honey was asked a few questions by other bloggers on her blog and in return she is asking others. An interview of sorts. So without further ado, here are my questions that she asked me and what fellow bloggers may be possibly dying to know. Okay, maybe you're not dying to know, but possibly curious, although I don't think I'm all that interesting. So yeah, rawk on!

1. What can't you live without?

Well, there are so many things that I would be lost without, like hygiene products. Soap and deodorant are a must have,because who wants to smell right? Could you imagine not being able to wash your hair? Seriously. I guess I just have issues. But bedsides the must haves of modern civilized society like cell phones, cleaning products (and of course my family, couldn't live without them), I would pick my camera. My biggest joy in life is looking back on the memories I've captured of my life and my new camera has been my favorite thing thus far to help me capture all those wonderful things. If only I had more time and energy to learn more photography.

See? I took this the day I got it. It was for Mother's day this past year. It was a happy day for Crooked Eyebrow.



2.How did you meet your husband; was it love at first sight?

Well, let's see, I first met Mr. Crooked Eyebrow in 1995 while I dated his friend in high school, so I suppose it wasn't love at first sight. We all used to go out together and hang out as much as a 16 year old could back then. Let me remind some, that my husband is 6 years older than I am and he was doing the bar scene while I was in high school. But, like I said, I dated his friend until 1998 and I didn't hear from or see Mr. CE for about a year after I split from his (old) friend. Until one day I get a call from Mr. CE and we started a friendship via phone conversations. I didn't realize any feelings were "there" until he sent me a big flower arrangement complete with a stuffed animal after a surgery I had. I remember my mother saying, "I think he's likes you much more than a friend". I was clueless. After a few months we started having lunch dates weekly. Oh, I can still remember the butterflies I had walking into his work to pick him up. It was the one day out of the week that I looked forward to and the one hour that I had wished would last forever.

On one of our "dates" we went to Lake Michigan or "the dunes"as some may know it. This is where I realized I had strong feelings for him. Between the nervous rock skipping lessons he gave and his gentle touches, this was the first time I realized that I never wanted him out of my life. The light bulb went on, I loved this guy and I hadn't even kissed him. That came later that night...it was worth the wait.

We got engaged at the same place and after almost 8 years of marriage and he still makes my heart flutter ( you can gag now).

3. If your house was on fire and all of your family were safely outside, what one thing would you run back inside for?

Like #1, my pictures are one of my most valuable possessions after my family. Clothes can be replaced along with most jewelry (see #4) but you can never recreate your child's birth, birthdays and milestones. I'd have to say that I would go charging back into the blaze for those. They mean that much to me...

4. Scavenger hunt! Show me a purse, handbag and a piece of jewelry that you covet.


Well the piece of jewelry would be my engagement ring which belonged to Mr. CE's Baba ( Ukrainian grandmother). It was her wedding band and anniversary band put together. He trusted and loved me enough to pass it to me and to our family.


The picture doesn't do it justice...seeing how it is put together, it couldn't be re-sized, luckily I was the same size as her...meant to be?? Possibly.

My favorite purse/ handbag? Well, that would be my first coach purse I ever purchased. It's a bit too small now, but I'm broke and can't afford another for quite some time. For some reason, it meant alot to me to finally be able to buy one and I'll love it for ever and ever...


5. Favorite line from your favorite song?

I must say that my favorite song is not planned out with my responses to #1 and #3, but my favorite song is ...

Pictures of you from The Cure

favorite line? How could I pick?? OK, but I like them all...



there was nothing in the world that i ever
wanted more than to feel you deep in my heart
there was nothing in the world that i ever
wanted more than to never feel the breaking
apart all my pictures of you


So, if you have any more questions you'd like to ask, go ahead, I'll answer them...
and...
If you want to be "interviewed" let me know and I'll email you questions and you can play along too!

The Dunes are a great place for romance (;

I have the Nikon D70s and I LOVE it. I also wish I had more time and energy to get out and take more pictures. What kind of camera did you get?

Nikon D40.

Ooohhh, thank you for sharing. I love to hear stuff like that. I mean the love story part, I'm a sucker for mushy stories.
