More About Me Me Meme

I was tagged by Shelly...

What’s your name and website URL?

My name is Stephanie and if you are reading this, then you have arrived at Adventures In Babywearing!

1) What’s the most fun work you’ve ever done, and why?

I think one of the most fun places I worked was as at The Art Institute of Chicago's museum gift shop. Yeah, it was in the gift shop but it was also in the museum, which was awesome. I was there during the big Monet exhibit in 1995. I worked with some of the most interesting people ever- including Bob Harris (Ed Harris' dad.)

2) Name one thing you did in the past that you no longer do but wish you did? (one sentence max)

Act on stage.

3) Name one thing you’ve always wanted to do but keep putting it off? (one sentence max).

Learn to sew.

4) What two things would you most like to learn or be better at, and why? (two sentences max).

I would like to be a better knitter because I enjoy knitting so much but can't do the really cool projects. I would like to be better at inviting new people to church.

5) If you could take a class/workshop/apprentice from anyone in the world living or dead, who would it be and what would you hope to learn? (two more sentences, max).

Ah, way back when I would have said an acting workshop from Meryl Streep. Now, oh maybe I'd love to sit and chat with Ruth Bell Graham & Erma Bombeck about motherhood.

6) What three words might your best friends or family use to describe you?

Positive, Happy, Dependable

7) Now list two more words you wish described you…

I wish I were super-organized and athletically fit.

8) What are your top three passions? (can be current or past, work, hobbies, or causes– three sentences max)

Promoting the Ketogenic Diet to treat seizures before/in place of medications, encouraging others to be informed about vaccinations, living a greener life (inside & out)

9) Write–and answer–one more question that YOU would ask someone (with answer in three sentences max)

If you were not a wife, mom, whatever you are now, what & where would you be?

I think I would have wanted to be in New York or L.A. doing some sort of acting/theatre but in reality would be working retail in Chicago acting in small parts there... I think I got the better deal right here.

I tag Lori, Sandra, & Jenn... play along, too, if you'd like!

    I was still in highschool when the Monet exhibit came. My french class took a field trip there. I was in awe of all the beautiful artwork. To this day the Art Museum in Chicago is one of my favorite places to go and someday I will have a room in my home with huge Monet prints on display!

  2. My hubby and I backpacked through Paris with our first child when he was 7 months old. We visited almost every single exhibit, including Monet's. It was wonderful I just wish I could afford one!!! I love museums, I take my kids to them whenever we can.

    I'm really interested in learning more about that diet, my cousin suffers from seizures and it has been very difficult. He was fired from one job because they didn't understand it, he's a teacher now and has had 1 seizure in front of the class, almost bite his tongue off. He's on major medication but it slows down his thought process.

    I also totally agree with you on immunization - totally!! My sister was healthy all her life, never had a shot. Then she went to Africa for YWAM and had to have all the shots, it wreaked her immune system. I had my first have the first shot and he was so sick, I thought he was going to die. We didn't immunize after that.I don't have the rest of my kids immunized and they are rarely sick, they were the last ones to get the chicken pox in their group of friends and they barely had a break out.

  3. I still think it's so cool you worked at the Art Institute - David is super jealous!

    Do you still have the acting bug? Have you ever thought of getting into community theater? Our church has a great drama group (my MIL directs it - so of course it wonderful :) )

  4. I love these meme's! Just neat to learn more about people. You had great answers!!

  5. I thought for sure one of your passions would be babywearing!! LOL. This was a great meme!

  6. I am on it!!! :) Probably post on Monday.

  7. So fun to hear about the non-mom stuff sometimes. And it's good for us to remind ourselves that we are Stephanie and Lisa in addition to "Mom!" I think community theater is a great idea!

  8. I haven't seen this one. I loved your answers. Very sophisticated sounding. :) I've visited a museum a couple of times, that is about it. HA. Pretty cool fact about you. And acting. Man, I am just not someone who could do that, so I think that is awesome. This was fun to read.

  9. I loved this...esp the one about inviting more people to church...I need to improve on this one too.


Your comment is gonna totally make my day!
