    Britneys Questions:

    What your dream Vacation?
    My dream vacation would to be to go to Europe and explore England, Scotland, Ireland, France, Italy and Germany... Probably won't happen

    What is your dream date?
     My dream date?
    Well that's "a tough one. I'd have to say April 25th. Because it's not too hot, not too cold, all you need is a light jacket." Just Kidding! I would have to say my dream date would be to have my Hubby surprise me with a trail ride! Yep you heard me horse back-riding...

    Who is your best friend?
    My Best friend would have to be the Hubby!
     Oh wait... Did you mean as in best girl friend? Then Sonya or Bri... 
    Oh wait Best Bloggy Friend? There are too many to count! 

    What would you do if you won the lottery?
    I would buy a house for Us, My parents and the Hubby's parents. I would then pay off our debt and save the rest. 

    Describe a typical day for you
    I usually get up between 5:00- 5:30 am. Take the dog outside, let the chickens out and feed dog and cat. Read some blogs.
    Then if I am working I go to work (7:30-5:30 except Sunday)
    If it is a night that we are supposed to run I go home get the Hubby and the dog and we head to the track. Otherwise I get home and the Hubby usually has dinner made. 
    Go outside with the dog, watch the chickens for a little while and then put them away. Come back inside watch a little TV and then go to bed before 9pm (Yes were are the old married couple)

    Why do you blog?
     I blog as an outlet. Its a place to share my thoughts and feelings. I also blog to meet NEW Friends... working all the time makes it hard to form friendships IRL.

    How do you stay fit?
     The Hubby and I just started the C25K program again (I am using it for interval training not to be able to run a marathon!), I also love Yoga and Hiking!

    What are some short term goals you have?
     To be honest I haven't thought about it much. I want to lose weight and start saving more money!

    Tell me about your kids if you have any 
    We don't have any yet! We are waiting a few years. We want to have just "us"time before we change our lives for the next 18+ years. But with that said we have names picked out lol
    What is your hobby? other then blogging 
     I LOVE Photography (I bought a DSLR in Feb.) I love to target shooting, read, knit, and backyard farm.
