Behind the Screen


"Nothing of me is original. I am the combined effort of everyone I've ever known." 


It's been nearly half a year since I last answered the questions you had for me. Because I've gained a lot of followers and Facebook fans since that time, I'd like to do it again. Sound okay?

So ask away. Leave a comment with one question or ten. As always, nothing is off limits. Marriage? Favorites? Motherhood? Depression? School? My past? My future? Likes or dislikes? If there's anything you're curious about, here's your chance to get to know me a little bit better.

I look forward to the questions, and answering each and every one!

P.S. For those of you not on Facebook, here is the latest news- Sky passed a not-for-record PT test at drill this weekend (woohoo!). He's scheduled to take the official test on August 1. Please keep us in your prayers as he continues to work out and be as ready as possible. His future in the Army Reserves (as well as so many things that will involve our whole family) depend on this. Thank you!


P.P.S. Julep is having a promotion where you enter the code MAVENINTRO (you can also use PENNYINTRO) at checkout and get a box for $0.01 plus free shipping! I'm not a raving fan of those monthly sample boxes, but this is pretty awesome: click THIS link to sign up (I get referral points!) and you'll only'll pay a penny for two cute nail polishes and a pedicure scrub! I actually also did this under my husband's name and debit card, which means 4 nails polishes and two scrubs for two cents (shh!). One bottle of their nail polish normally costs $14 (and the scrub is $22), so you obviously get a lot for literally next to nothing. I had to share! http://www.julep.com/?r=22421820


P.P.P.S. There are a few days left in the hair ties giveaway! Remember, you can tweet one a day for extra entries.

OK, I have a question for you! This is something that keeps coming up in our family discussions - schooling. I know you were homeschooled and this is something that we have debated and will possibly give a try if our kids' new school does not work out. Did you like it? What ages/grades were you homeschooled for? What about the social side of school, how does that work - extra activities, sports, play groups? Did your parents develop the curriculum or did they use a pre-made one? And finally, would you choose to homeschool Millie, after having been taught that way yourself?
Sorry, that was WAY more than one question! But I'm so interested to hear other people's views on this and get some advice, in case we end up going this route ourselves. Thanks!! :)

I have a few, how do you and Sky continue to work on your marriage? What sort of activities do you do together that are the best for keeping a spark in the marriage? And, any advice for newlyweds or things you wished people had told you?

Oh you're a palahniuk fan... That must be why I like you. ;)

i don't have any questions! :) however, i do know what he's going through with the pt stuff! mine did that before his deployment this yr, only he was at training, not home. probably better that he was out there to lose it and not here. home life makes him fat! :)

beka said...

what are the things [about marriage and life, kids, etc] you would tell yourself [back then] --and/or any young woman about to marry??

Michelle said...

When can we hang out in real life?!

And, of course, praying for the test!

Mel said...

Thanks for the Julep info - signed up for mine! :)

Fran said...

How did you make such a cute kid? Actually, don't answer that. :P

Mrs. Nix said...

Just a quick tip that I realized too late...your friends have to stay a member on Julep for at least 30 days in order to keep your points! :( Boo, Julep!

I can't wait to read all the answers. Hope you're feeling great after your procedure today! :)

What is your hands-down favorite thing/recipe you've made from Pinterest?

Nicole said...

Ok, I have a question. How would you feel if you had to give up your blog and your Facebook? Do you feel like you'd have a part of you missing, or do you think it would be easy? I mean putting aside how many people read and follow and comment on your blog -- I just wonder. There is lots of time spent on these social networks and sometimes I wonder if human contact is becoming harder to come by. lol

We know that you are going back to school, what do you plan on doing with Millie during tht time? Do you want to be a stay at home mom forever? If not what do you see yourself doing, realistically. Like another mentioned you have thought homeschooling? Would you want a job thrown in with that?
