MacGyver (or my husband who is a modern day version of him) to help figure a creative way out of there. Least likely? Jabba the Hutt. www.momevolving.com

Hmmm. Since I am a lover of chocolate it would have to be Hershey Kisses... I would bring a "little love" back into the White House. They are individually wrapped too, so it reduces the possibility of germ spreading from germ coated fingers reaching in the bowl. www.momevolving.

When I was a child we would take a lot of road trips out west when I would visit my father for the summers. My favorite memory was visiting Four Corners. We pulled up well after 8 PM and I ran out and laid spread eagle, so my torso what in the middle and each limb was in a state. The guard, or whoever he was that "manned" the area looked at me like I was stark raving crazy. Maybe I was, but I fulfilled my dream. www.momevolving.com

I cannot think how it would improve my life.... It would just give me something else to clean little fingerprints off of. www.momevolving.com

1. Trust your intuition and use this time to pursue your dreams. 2. Balance taking a risk and playing it safe. 3. Sometimes your parents are right, so listen even when they aren't talking. www.momevolving.com

Probably a babysitter so that I can get a few things done. If not always tied directly to an immediate assignment, I usually have a hard time justifying it. That and education. There are many classes in areas that I would like to develop, but just don't seem to have the time for right now. www.momevolving.com

Didn't really text previously. Great way to disseminate short burst of information directly to my friends & family's phones.

I would like to run another half marathon and generally be lighter. Although I am running, to really train and improve running time usually takes dedication and consistency with the training process. Right now I am lacking in both. Unless I run first thing in the morning, work and small people tend to interrupt the day and everything gets derailed.

After seeing to the many details associated with an out of town wedding, I missed a critical one- NEVER DO ANYTHING EXPERIMENTAL THE DAY BEFORE YOUR WEDDING! The day before my wedding I went into the salon that would be doing my hair to get my eyebrows done. They suggested that I get a facial treatment so that I was "truly beautiful" on that special day. Who wouldn't want to be beautiful on their wedding day? So I was suckered into the up-sell and had made a really BIG mistake. When I woke up the morning of my wedding, my face was covered with red welts. I felt like I was reliving the 16 Candles movie I began doing shots of Benadryl in hopes that they might subside. Needless to say, I was really glad I had splurged on a professional makeup artist!

Do I love my body in its current state? Well, let's be honest here... no. Am I in awe with what an amazing machine the body is? Absolutely. Because really that is what I really think the body is. Perfectly balanced, your bones and muscles your framework working in unison with the brain, organs and body chemistry. It is absolutely awe inspiring. However, there is something about having had two kids and having aged that makes me less and less "in love," if I ever was, with my body. That all said, I am so very grateful that I am healthy and that I am able to do so much with this wonderful "machine."

I would show them the small and large things... a dragonfly's wings; a rose; a rainbow in Hawaii; a thunderstorm; a spiderweb; the sun on a fresh snowfall; the painted desert; a family; the beach at low tide; a bee covered in pollen... there really is so much to see if you take time to stop and look. http://www.momevolving.com/evolutions/

My most cherished possession was a quilt that was begun by one generation and completed by another. See my full post at http://www.momevolving.com/evolutions/
