I think I am supposed to link up somehow to others blogs who have filled out this same survey, but I cannot figure out how! Maybe Rose can help me? I stole this from her! Since I am bored, I just thought it would be fun and different to do a survey about me.

1. Do you cook every night?
Just about. Unless we go out. Or the occasional night we just have a sandwich or leftovers.

2. What kind of laundry detergent do you use & why?
I usually buy anything free & clear because I like it.

3. Do you do laundry every day or loads at a time?
I try to keep up everyday, but there are definitely times that I lag for a few days.

4. How often do you eat out per week?
Usually once per week, and usually with my parents when my Dad is in Maryland. He is in Maryland Wednesday nights, and weekends while he is working in Pennsylvania.

5. Where do you usually eat out?
We usually try a new place. We like Du Claws Brewery lately.

6. What is your favorite retail store?
I am a big Target Junkie and now that they carry Paul Frank baby clothing, I am even more obsessed. I am at Target once per week, at the very least.

7. What's your favorite thing to drink?
Vanilla Freeze from our local coffee shop. It is an addiction I need to give up because $3.71 per day really adds up. :(

8. Do you take vitamins? What kind?

9. What percentage of the household chores do you do?
99.9 %, since I am a stay at home Mom! I can't complain.

10. Do your children do chores? {Or will they, did they, etc}
Emerick is still too young, but He will absolutely have chores when he is of an appropriate age.

11. Do you go to church?
No. We do plan to join a church though.

12. Do you have a housework schedule?
Not really. I just do things that need to be done on a daily basis.

13. Do you keep a working budget?
Not on paper.

14. What do you do at night as a family?
We have dinner together as a family. James usually plays with Emerick after dinner. Occasionally we go out for ice cream, or a walk. I bathe Emerick and put him to bed around 8-8:30. Once Emerick is in bed, James and I will watch a movie or something.

15. How do you prepare yourself for a new week?
Not much preparation there!

16. What do your mornings look like?
James gets up and ready for work. He usually sets Emerick up to watch some cartoons or Baby Einstein while I wake up (about a 20 min. process!) When I'm up I change Emerick, feed him breakfast, dress him. Do daily chores. Eat my breakfast, shower, get dressed. Then we usually run errands, or go somewhere for the day.

17. What time do you get up in the mornings?

18. What time do you go to bed at night?
11 ish

19. How do you manage all of the paperwork that floods into your household? {bills, school work, magazines, ads, etc}
bills go in the bill organizer, ads get trashed, magazines get put in the magazine rack.

20. How do you keep your household organized? {calendars, charts, etc}
I am naturally a very organized person, it is really more like OCD. I do not rely on any charts to stay organized. I do have a planner that I carry in the diaper bag that I use for Doctor appointments, photo shoots, and other important dates.
