Take a Leap

Hey yall- I’m participating in the “Leap around the Blogosphere” that my friend Andrea is doing.

  1. My childhood nickname was Mart, Marty, or Half Pint. Most of my family calls me Mart and my softball and field hockey teammates called me Half Pint. I was small…
  2. If you want to spoil me rotten, buy me a a night in a cabin, with a stack of chick flicks, candy, red wine, and a masseuse. It’s my party, I’ll get massaged and watch Pretty Woman if I want to.
  3. The television character I most identify with is Leslie Knope. Mainly because everyone thinks we look and act alike. When Baby Mama came out, my inbox was FLOODED with emails from people that I hadn’t heard from in years, “OMG you look just like that girl from Baby Mama!” I’ll take it as a compliment.
  4. If I had a whole day to go shopping and money to spend, I would go to Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters…. no doubt.
  5. The most wild and crazy thing I have ever done (that I can admit to publicly) is bungee jump! I’ve been skydiving but it wasn’t nearly as scary as bungee jumping. I made peace with Jesus on that rope.
  6. The one thing on my bucket list that I am most eager to do is get my pilot’s license. Too bad its friggin expensive.
  7. My family will always be loyal to Charmin Toilet Paper. I never understand the people who get the thin, rough kind. ITS A TRAGEDY!
  8. If I could spend a day with a celebrity I would choose Amy Poehler or Tina Fey. There is nothing more awesome to me than a funny woman who isn’t afraid of crossing boundaries.
  9. In my opinion, the best invention in the history of the world is soft toilet paper and the Nerds Rope.
  10. When life hands me lemons, I give it to my son because there are few things funnier than watching a baby taste something sour.

  • I hope you’ll get your pilot’s license one day! And bungee jump..? That’s admirable, there is no way anyone could get me to do that!! And I am a HUGE fan of Amy Poehler!!!

    I would NEVER be able to bungee jump. Kudos to you for taking the plunge!

  • I could barely read your blog post because I couldn’t stop looking at the beautiful baby in your header!  After I did, I was impressed with your bravery ( bungee jumping and sky diving!)  and loved that you named Tina Fey, great choice!

  • I think I’d jump from a plane before bungee jumping – with a parachute & strapped to a hot instructor, of course. But I’d also love to get my pilot’s license, but I’ll likely leave the flying to the pros. And your last answer reminded me that we used to do this with one of our daughter’s all the time. You’d think she’d turn away from the lemon because the faces she’d make were beyond funny. But she leaned in every. time!

  • Yay! I can’t believe you jumped off of things. I am shaking just thinking about it!!
