TV, Tattoos, Jewelry, and Road Rage

It's that time again and I couldn't help but join in--I love the questions for We Want To Know Wednesday this week. N-joy...

What game show have you always thought you could be on and totally WIN!?
There are two - the Newlywed Show (McKay and I were GREAT newlyweds--we knew everything about each other!) and Family Feud. I know that there have been others that I have sat at home and thought "Oh my gosh!! I would be a freaking millionaire right now!!"....if only...

Do you have a tattoo(s)? What are they and what made you chose them? If not, would you get one, yes/no/why?
I don't have any tattoos. I went through a phase where I seriously thought about it though. I went back and forth for months trying to decided if I really wanted to get one and what I would get. I thought about getting a long-stemmed rose on my right side (ribs to hip). I also thought about getting "INVICTUS" tattooed on my left side (Invictus is latin for "Unconquerable". William Ernest Henley wrote a poem which he titled "Invictus" that I have loved since 8th grade). I finally decided at one point that I was definitely going to get a tattoo. It was going to be a tattoo of a Lily in honor of my grandmother who passed away in 2007. We were really close and Lilies were her favorite. I was going to get it done on a weekend and I found out earlier that week that I was pregnant....and I have never had the desire to get a tattoo since.

What is your favorite piece of jewelry that you own?
I love my wedding ring and, obviously, it is a very special piece of jewelry. But that's a pretty obvious answer. Aside from my wedding ring, my very favorite piece of jewelry is a necklace that my sweet husband got for me for Christmas last year from Arjento. (Can I just say that I LOOOOOVE Arjento? Yes. I freaking love Arjento. They have beautiful jewelry for affordable prices and the best part? They engrave for free!! I got my wedding jewelry from them and I still love it. It will be passed down to my daughter if I have one.) It's a silver silhouette of a little boy with my son's name engraved on it on one side and his birthdate engraved on the other side. Here is what it looks like:

I really really really love it - you can tell that I wear it a LOT! The smooth finish is looking a little They have little girl silhouettes too. I want to get one for each of my kids (if/when I have more). I would say you should check out their website, but it's not working right now for some reason, but I linked to their FB page above!

What are your driving pet peeves?
I will tell you right now. I have major road rage. I cannot STAND bad drivers!! I ACED my driver ed class and I think that is why I have a pretty low tolerance for bad driving. Slow people in the fast lane, illegal lefthand turns, texting while driving, people who try to let other people turn on a busy road which causes a big  traffic jam and all kinds of confusion. IF YOU DON'T HAVE CONTROL OF ALL THE TRAFFIC ON YOUR SIDE OF THE ROAD, DON'T TRY TO BE THE NICE PERSON--JUST GO BEFORE YOU CAUSE AN ACCIDENT!! I follow the rule my driver ed teacher gave me back in High School: "The best way to NOT get into an accident is to not try to be courteous. Just get to where you're going and follow the rules." Anyone who has ridden in a car with me can attest to the fact that I am pretty vocal when I encounter bad driving and I am not afraid to use the horn!! 

What was your favorite sitcom growing up that you wish was still on?
That one is easy--my favorite was Full House!! I loved it! Not sure if I wish it was still on though... Another show that I loved that I wish was still on is Friends.
