family yoga and fifty(!) things

I was tagged by Jenny/Krousegirl2 and I have to say that it is because of my love for my most favorite fabric swapping friend that I am taking the time to share all this silly info! The deal with this meme is that you post a photo of yourself and answer 50 questions. I’m not going to tag anyone, but if you think it is fun to read these, you should do it too. Everyone loves learning more about their flickr friends, right?

I am cheating with an old photo b/c my camera is in the shop. The photo is from a vacation we took this summer. We are doing yoga. Believe me, we are not one of those wholesome families who does family-yoga sessions regularly. This just sort of happened b/c my daughter picked out a Babar – Yoga for Elephants book at the library and the place we stayed at did not have television so we had to do something! But we are a goofy bunch and this photo captures me doing what I do when I’m not at work or making stuff. And yes, I most definitely have bed-head and am sporting my pajamas in said photograph. Oh well….

1: What are you wearing?
A dress from Athleta. I am addicted to their dresses. Both flattering and comfy.
2: Something about you that nobody ever knew?
Plenty of my friends and family know this, but my flickr friends probably do not. I love to run and have finished two marathons. My best time was 3 hrs 40 minutes. I am really proud of that!
3: Biggest phobias?
Choking. I am always afraid that little kids are going to choke on something. I am super paranoid about it. Always!
4: How tall are you?
5′ 8”
5: Ever been in love?
6: Any tattoos that you want?
Not ever. Not my thing!
7. Any piercing that you want?
8. Makeouts or cuddling
Both are good by me.

Size 9
10. favourite bands
I am not really into music.

Traveling to the less polished capital cities in Europe/CEE etc.
12: Favourite song?
See #10.
13: How old are you?

I am horrible remembering this type of thing.
17: Favourite singer?
See #10.
18: Favourite colour?
19: Loud music or soft?
Fun and danceable!
20: Where do you go when you’re sad?
I usually seek out my closest girlfriend or my husband and rely on them to cheer me up. My kids too.
21: How long does it take you to shower?
5 minutes
22: How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
15 minutes
23: Ever been in a physical fight?
Yes. My sisters. We fought over clothes all the time.
24: Turn on?
25: Turn off?
26: The reason I joined Flickr?
I joined b/c I wanted to back-up my photos. But I stay for the crafty camaraderie!
27: Fears?
I don’t even like to write it but it has to do with the safety of my children. Shudder.
28: Last thing that made you cry?
At my 5 year old’s back to school night, they showed a video of all the kids in his kindergarten class on their first day of school. They showed us snippets of the whole day. Getting off the bus, walking in the halls, classroom time, assembly, lunch etc etc. I cried like a baby. So did most of the mom’s. It was crazy. I have become such a wimp in my old age!
29: Last time you cried?
A month ago
30: Meaning behind your url:
My husband’s family used to run an apple cyder mill and now he occasionally presses cyder at home. I didn’t want to use the word “sew” in my blog name, so that was the best I could come up with.
31: Last book you read?
Island Practice by Pam Belluck. I liked it! Kafka on the Shore is my all time fave book, followed by the Count of Montecristo.
32: Last song you listened to?
Tonight, Tonight by Hot Chelle Rae. My three year old requested it b/c she loves to dance to it in the kitchen. (I am klassy!)
33: Last show you watched?
I wish I could remember when Modern Family is on, because I love watching it when I remember. I also like Parks and Rec and 30 Rock. But I would almost always prefer to DO something in the evening than watch TV.
34: Last person you talked to?
My friend and co-worker. We both have kindergarten boys and we were bemoaning the fact that we can’t manage all the info that is sent home in their backpacks.
35: The relationship between you and the person you last texted?
My sister. She is in town from Park City. She sent me a photo of my mom and her shoveling manure together at a local farm. There is a personal joke within this story, but I will stop at that.
36: Favourite food?
This is an impossible question. But maybe good sushi is the answer. Or soup dumplings. Or cheese. I love food!
37: Place you want to visit?
Bhutan. I am convinced I need to go there!
38: Last place you were?
We went camping at White Lake State Park in New Hampshire last weekend.
39: Do you have a crush?
40: Last time you kissed someone?
My husband, as I headed out the door to work. Just before, I kissed the hands of both my kids and they returned the favor. Have you ever read “The Kissing Hand?” Cute book!
41: Last time you were insulted and what was it? I really can’t think of something. I’ll report back if something occurs to me.
42: What colour underwear are you wearing?
bright aqua with blue hearts. My wardrobe is very plain so my unders have to be fun!
43: What colour shirt are you wearing?
Wearing a purple dress.
44: Are you tired?
45: Wearing any bracelets?
Never. I wear a pair of diamond stud earrings every day, and my wedding band. End of story.
46: Last sport you played?
Soccer, probably. I bring a ball around with me and juggle so that I have something to do when I’m watching my kids at their organized sports. I used to play in college. Best sport!
47: Last song you sang?
See #32. We sing AND dance in our kitchen.
48: Last prank call you remember doing?
Maybe in junior high? Is your refrigerator running? Better go catch it!
49: Last time you hung out with anyone?
My sister, my husband and a family friend on Monday night at a local bar. Though every night, I read to my kids and then lay in the dark with them and chat. I seem to get the most interesting information out of them at that time. And it’s a nice way to end their day.
50: Do you consider yourself to be approachable?
Probably not. I can be shy and I tend to cross my arms a lot. But I am really nice! Pinky swear.

Also, I did a post like this before—except it was only ten things. It is here!

Are you dying of boredom yet?
