5QF: 11.05.10

1. If you could have any talent and turn it into an occupation, what would it be? Hmmm...probably digital card making. I do for all card occassions now and really enjoy it.

2. Would you rather have a house at the beach or a cabin in the woods? A cabin in the woods. So long as the woods were located near civilization and shopping. Hubby would choose a house at the beach.

3. Is there any meaning or reasoning for the names you chose for your child/children? When Samantha was born (at 19 weeks), the name I *thought* Hubby and I had talked about/agreed on was Grace. But I was in recovery and our priest had come to the hospital to baptize her and needed a name, so Hubby chose Samantha, which apparently was his favorite girl name. Samantha's middle name, Michelle, is my middle name. For Maggie, Hubby gave me free rein since he named Samantha, so ... I really loved the name Maggie but also wanted to give her a "Chief Justice of the Supreme Court name", and so chose Margaret Grace. Margaret is a Saint and also the middle name of Maggie's godmother, and Grace was the name I'd wanted to use for Samantha and also in honor of Jesus' gift to us.

4. What is your guilty pleasure? (I know we've done this one before, but I'm guessing people's "guilty pleasures" change frequently. At least, mine do!) Starbucks Java Chip Frappacino. Mmmmm.

5. Do you live in a house that is deep cleaned or straightened? Straightened, although I do get an itch occassionally and we do a grand overhaul, pulling out couches and washing down walls. The itch doesn't last long, though, and if it doesn't get accomplished on cleaning day, it has to wait until the next time :)
