Question/Answer

for the "Question Game" on my blog

I used to do these posts before I had Formspring, and now that I don't participate in that site anymore I thought I would do another question/answer style post here. I'm also in the process of writing up some FAQs for my "About" page up there on my top navigation bar, so this will be helpful in that process as well!

So, if you have anything you'd like to know, or have a question you'd like me to answer, leave it as a comment. Feel free to be anonymous if you'd prefer!  I'll answer all of the questions in an upcoming post.

  20. How long did you teach before Henry arrived? Do you ever think you'll go back to teaching? Maybe when Henry is in school himself?

  21. So I've been toying with an idea of getting something tattooed. It'd be on my wrist, and it'd be something that reminds me to be kind. I had a tough childhood and can be extremely abrasive, but deep down that's not me. I literally need a constant reminder. (FYI I already do have 1 tattoo, so it wouldn't be my first one). What do you think?

    ReplyDelete
  22. I've read a few times that you were going to discuss your sleeve, yet I haven't seen a post about it! I'm so incredibly curious! You have such beautiful art, and I loved reading your 'Tattoo Story'.
    Thanks!

  23. I'd love to know more about your fitness and eating habits. Not any specific question, actually... But maybe some upcoming posts about it/both? Even at the end of your pregnancy, you still looked amazing!

  28. i love your thoughts on cleansing yourself & surroundings of negativity, leaving sour relationships in the past. but how do you do it? i feel like I try time & time again but I can't break these friendships that leave me scathed. & old negative nancy's that seem to follow & won't let it go..it can be hurtful to the body & soul. what's your regimen?

  29. How is the southern region? I'm a Wisconsin girl looking to get out of here as soon as I graduate because the cold weather and snow are just about enough to kill me. I'm going to school to be an elementary school teacher and was wondering how's the area for teaching and cost of living? Oh, and the weather and the people too :)

  30. How much money do you spend on Henry? Do you think it's right to have a baby when you don't have a full time job? Or you should wait until you've got a lot of money?

    ReplyDelete

  35. Hi! I just wanna say I really love your blog! It's inspiring to know there are people like you out there! It really makes us believe in mankind again.
    I know it sounds weird, but you've totally changed my thoughts about how to improve life, in every aspects.
    So, enough with the babbling, (hahaha) my question is about your 'detox diet'(it's sooooo interesting and 'health friendly'), the one you did before your wedding, where have you founded it? How it's done? Do you get hungry (if so, what can you eat)?

    Sorry if I made any mistakes but I'm actually Brazilian, and haven't written or spoken english for ages! ^^
    Thank you very much for this AWESOME blog!

  40. Where do you think is the best spot for a wordy tattoo? I think graphics are easier to find a spot for but I'd love my next tattoo to be lyrics (just 3 words) from my favorite hymn and I'm at a total loss of where to put it. My latest thought is on the back of my arm/tricep.

  49. I was wondering what your husband does for work, and if not having enough money was ever a concern for you with having a baby? Any time I ask anyone, it seems their number one concern while pregnant (or the reason they are waiting) is they are worried about not having enough money. What are your thoughts on this?
