Getting to Know Us: A Short Q&A
We wanted to give our readers an opportunity to get to know us better, so we thought it would be fun to post a little Q&A about us. Enjoy!
Which "Friends" character do you most identify with and why? Has it changed in the last 10 years?
Heather: I am definitely Rachel. It has changed since becoming a mother and now I see myself in Monica too. On my really good days I can identify with all three! haha
Miranda: I'm totally Monica. Always have been, always will be. Except when it comes to cleaning. I'm not quite as compulsive as she is. (And just so you know, Friends was our favorite show in High School!)
Would you rather...be a vampire or a werewolf? Why?
Heather: A vampire because I'm terrified of werewolves. Yes...I know they aren't real!
Miranda: Ummm, neither? Is that an option? No? Well then...a werewolf. Probably because I hate having my neck touched, so it would be a little awkward for me to be going after someone else's neck. Though I guess if I'm a werewolf, Heather and I couldn't be friends anymore. Hmmm...
(Would You Rather was also a favorite party game of ours.)
What are you descended from?
Heather: I am 25% Finnish. I also have strong German in the mix somewhere.
Miranda: I'm part Welsch, Danish, English, and Sweedish. No wonder I'm so freaking pasty white!
If you were an animal, what would you be?
Heather: A cheetah!
Miranda: Not quite sure about this one. Maybe...
What personality color are you?
Heather: I am SO yellow.
Miranda: I have a little bit of all of the colors. Whenever I've taken this test, I usually wind up pretty even across the board, though I am a little more red and a little less yellow.
If your life were a reality TV show, what would the title be?
Heather: It would have to be something comical like...Mom VS. Wild.
Miranda: Probably something like, "Because I Said So!" since that's what I spend half my day saying to Andyroo as he asks over and over, "Why, mommy? Why?" Maybe that would be a good title too...
What is your biggest motivator?
Heather: My husband takes position number one.
Miranda: My family! Especially my husband and little boy!
Are you where you thought you would be 5 years ago?
Heather: No. I never had Hawaii in our plans. I thought I would still be in good old Idaho.
Miranda: 5 years ago hubs and I were just about to get married. I thought I'd be finished with school, he would have a "real" job, and we would already have another child (or two). So....according to those plans...nope! We're on our way, but not yet.
Which celebrity mother do you most identify with?
Heather: Goldy Hawn just because she was a mom and still found time to be funny.
Miranda: Right now the only one that comes to mind is Roseanne! But I don't really think that's the one I identify with the most.
And, most importantly...Coke or Pepsi??
Heather: Diet Pepsi
Miranda: Pepsi - the fully-caffinated, sugar-filled stuff. None of that diet or caffeine-free stuff. I guess it's a good thing I only drink it once every couple of months!
Also, if you have any other questions you'd like to to answer in upcoming Q&A's, please feel free to ask. And if you'd like to play along and answer these questions yourself, feel free to do. We'd love to get to know our readers!!
