Lovely Hodge Podge Vol. 65

Welcome to Lovely Hodge Podge provided to us by the fab Joyce at 
From This Side of The Pond.  Head over to her page and join in the fun!  
Thanks again for supplying the questions Joyce, because between
 my busy schedule, sick kids and mommy brain this is the only blogging I get done these days :)

1. What is something you are loving right now?

Right now I am loving the time I get to spend with my kids, even when they are being monsters (which is rare)  because I know it will pass all too quickly.  Plus, they are hilarious.

2. Paris, Venice, New York, and Rome are considered four of the most romantic cities in the world. Which one would you most like to visit?

Well I would like to visit them all but I think I would start with Venice.

3. Are you a romantic?

I like Romance but I don't know that I am especially romantic.  I don't think of great romantic things to do for my husband and I forget our anniversary all the time.  Yes I know how horrible that is.  I think I am working on being more of a romantic.

4. What's your favorite love story made for the Big Screen?

I think it it is a three way tie between The Notebook,  The Proposal and You've Got Mail.  I love all three of those and none are really super traditional.

5. Everyone loves Pooh bear and friends...which character are you most like and why? Click here for help in answering this question.

I took the quiz and I am happy to report that I am Kanga like :)

6. What's the best chocolate something you've ever eaten?

Well currently my favorite is a delicious chocolate cake sold at the Co-Op store here that is soooooo yummy!  It is chocolate cake with chocolate mousse between the layers and has chocolate frosting and chocolate shavings on top.  Hmmm.... so good.  I might just have to go get one right after I post this which would not be good for my diet but good for my soul :)

7. Share a favorite quote about love.  I couldn't pick just one :)

Life is a flower of which love is the honey - Victor Hugo

Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other but in looking outward together in the same direction.  ~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Wind, Sand and Stars, 1939, translated from French by Lewis Galantière

Love one another and you will be happy.  It's as simple and as difficult as that.  ~Michael Leunig

You know you're in love when you don't want to fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.  ~Dr. Seuss

Before you love, learn to run through the snow leaving no footprint.  ~Turkish Proverb

8. Insert your own random thought here.

I completed my first Boom Boom workout yesterday courtesy of Team BeachBody.  My legs hurt so bad this morning I wanted to weep like a newborn but, I am excited to be on this path to being healthy again.  I am four days soda free and sleeping more so I already feel better.   Hope your week finds you healthy and happy!
