How To Fall In Love.

Oh this week – it’s just had it all. Family strife, bad self-esteem, bad weather, a stomach bug and a cold.

Not to mention, I had a really great Ask Away Friday swap set up this week and I goofed and it will be next week instead. That’s fine, because I’ll be in a much better state to answer the questions next week, I hope. This week I got inspiration from a quiz in a New York Times article that featured 37 questions that lead to love. You can see it HERE if you want! I’m feeling most un-lovey this week and I’m looking forward to answering some questions to make me feel it more. Anything can happen.

They are pretty juicy. I may have to revisit the article for the rest.. because it’s just ten eleven today!

What is #AskAwayFriday? Well…

#AskAwayFriday was created by the amazing Penny from Real Housewife of Caroline County and Amber from Bold Fit Mom, as a way to connect with other bloggers with a great Q & A session of 10 questions and 10 answers, between two bloggers! This is a wonderful opportunity to get to know others while allowing others to get to know you and of course there is also the added bonus of making great friends along the way which is one of the best parts of this online world! Ask me if you want to swap!

We are sad to be losing Amber as one of our amazing co-hosts, as she is working to pursue other business ventures and focusing her attentions on her fitness ventures. We wish her nothing but the best, and hope for her thriving success!

When one door closes, another one opens…and we would like to give a huge Ask Away Friday welcome to a brand new co-host…drum roll please…Welcome Echo from The Mad Mommy! She is both a friend and a fellow blogger. I dig her.

1. Given the choice of anyone in the world, whom would you want as a dinner guest?

I’m thinking this question means a person who is alive, so we’ll go with that. I’m struggling between going with someone rather untouchable I deeply admire (celebrity or whatnot), or maybe a blogging friend I feel a very strong connection with, but haven’t met in person yet. To go for one of each, I want Alan Rickman over for dinner. (I just watched that 14 minutes of Snape’s timeline video) And I want Dizmommy over. Rebecca-faith, what’s your favorite meal? I’ll have it on the stove.

2. Would you like to be famous? In what way?

I really would, but in a way in which I could still walk down the street and mostly not be recognized. And I really would, but in a way in which I could still be 100% myself and touchable – as in replying to fan letters, doing charity work and being cool. I always thought I’d be famous for doing something heroic or crazy, and succeeding. I’ll also take it for writing an incredible book or three, and I’d love to be a well-known photographer. I’d like my work on the walls of many homes and buildings.

3. Before making a telephone call, do you ever rehearse what you are going to say? Why?

Yes, and also anytime I’m about to have a serious talk with Cassidy. And it always goes out the window and I sound like a sniffling idiot, even when I make completely logical sense in my head. And my head isn’t as scattered as it seems. I swear.

4. What would constitute a “perfect” day for you?

I’m not so, so picky. I’ve had some pretty great days of not doing much, and some great days being halfway across the country, or all the way across it. I think it needs to have zero anxiety, a bit of fun risks, good health, good food, my family, and maybe throw in some moose. Weather wise, I love days that are in that 72-75 range with sun and non-threatening puffy clouds. No humidity and a slight breeze. A really good coffee drink and maybe some romance too. A handful of fine things.

5. When did you last sing to yourself? To someone else?

I last sang to myself today while making breakfast. I was singing Alanis Morissette because my rough morning reminded me of her “Hand In My Pocket” song. My Facebook status was this:

“I want to write a song and we all get a verse. It’s going to be called “This Was Not Part of the Plan.” Hashtags could be ‪#‎NotThePlan‬, ‪#‎ThisWasNotThePlan‬, ‪#‎NotPartOfThePlan‬? It would go to the tune of an Alanis Morissette song, I should think. Here’s mine:
“I had a full day of work planned..
I’ve got one kid with a stomach virus and the other kid coughing up a lung
Schools were called while I was hiding in the bathroom..
Next to a pile of dirty laundry..”

The last time I sang to someone else was Des before bed last night. It was some form of broken lullaby and he loved it.

6. If you were able to live to the age of 90 and retain either the mind or body of a 30-year-old for the last 60 years of your life, which would you want?

Well I want to live to over 100, like my grandparents! With them, their minds were pretty sharp until the end. It was their bodies that gave out. With my other grandfather, his mind went and it was awful – but maybe more for us than him. Sadly we couldn’t ask him. I’m going to say the mind, although it’s hard to say. I’d love to be able to do photography and writing until the end, although I think writing would require my mind more, and photography would require my body more. So I hope those good genes kick in and that I keep taking good care of myself! Also, that question nearly stumped me enough to remove it!

7. Do you have a secret hunch about how you will die?

I’m hoping that for my all of my family and friends, it’s like how it was for my grandparents – peacefully, at age 100 or older, and after a life of mostly living on their own terms. Of course, I hope it will be easier by then with healthcare and insurance and all sorts of things that made the end harder for my grandparents than was necessary. It seems it’s rarely easy.

8. Name three things you and your partner appear to have in common.

1. Good hair.
2. We’re both passionate about a lot of sci-fi and fantasy books, movies and shows.
3. We both want a better life. That doesn’t mean that stubbornness, rudeness and anxiety don’t get in the way. Of course they do.
4. Since #1 was a cop-out, here’s a third: We both have good hair. And sensitive hearts.

9. For what in your life do you feel most grateful?

An f-in great family! And great extended families. And great friends.

10. If you could change anything about the way you were raised, what would it be?

Well, sheesh. I mean I would have wanted my father to stay alive, as well as my siblings’ mother. That was not to be, though, and we all had each other. And we still do. So I’d wish for more security and less fears for all of us. I think my parents did a great job, but that’s truly hard with five grieving kids, so there was a lot of disharmony. Is disharmony even a word??

** A bonus one because this one is hard and requires a timer. 11. Take four minutes and tell your partner your life story in as much detail as possible.

Timer ON:

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, I was born. I didn’t even cry at birth. I just made Ewok sounds, quite like Des. I was born with super senses and I can remember this even from my earliest memories – super taste, super(ish) smell, super feels (ticklish), super feels (emotional), and definitely super hearing. My sight is only ok. Just under normal. My father passed away when I was just about four, so I had a problem with birthdays for years. My mom remarried a man with three kids and we all moved in together and became a family. It was all rather quick, and I didn’t even realize how much the sadness, uncertainty and change would affect me much later in life. I absolutely had a good childhood and I can remember getting high on life in complete and utter dizzying joy as early as age ten. I wanted to be a writer from around the same time. I also wanted to be a movie star and a filmmaker but luckily I realized that the lifelong obsession with cameras would lead to a photography love. I didn’t date much in high school. I was too scared and there was only one boy I really liked because he had great hair. There were other gigantic crushes towards the end of high school but the only romances existed in my head. In college, I got brave and went after what I wanted – lots of boys and good grades. I majored with honors in journalism and did a slew of bad jobs after college until realizing my three life dreams – to be a writer, a photographer, and a mother. I met a guy – you – and we have a 20 part love story, don’t we? It’s really 2,000 parts by now. Let’s hope it…

Timer OFF. Suspenseful, isn’t it? I’ll finish that sentence one day.

How To Fall In Love. — 126 Comments

  1. I love how you pulled this off and you never cease to amaze me what you will come up with next. But still, I am hoping that the stomach bug has pretty much passed and all are on the mend in your neck of the woods. Hugs and hope you are resting a bit now, too.

  2. I know your week was rough, but I have to say that I love this! I love this so much! I would love to have dinner with Rebecca too! I would also like to have dinner with you and Janine. Perhaps, all of you at once! Does that make me greedy? I don’t care! I hope someday I can make it happen! By the way, I didn’t cry when I was born either. My mom actually told the doctor to spank me because she WANTED to hear me cry!

  3. I so look forward to your Ask Away Friday blogs, and honestly Tamara every one of your blogs puts ear to ear smiles on my pale little face. I liked the rehearsing the lines before making a phone call question. I still do that quite often, I used to do that every time before I would call Julie Hannaford.

  4. Oh, I typed more, but somehow it didn’t publish. I was hanging on every word of your answer to question 11 when the timer stopped ticking. I’m already looking forward to hearing your finishing statement to that great last question just as I’m looking forward to your very next blog!

  5. Oh no! I hope the kiddos are starting to feel better!
    You and Cassidy really do both have great hair. And I know you have a sensitive heart and I don’t have a doubt in my mind that he does as well.
    It’s also amazing how much I learn about you every week.

    • Thank you! That’s why love these questions.

      The kids do seem to feel better. I get shocked by his stomach bugs, because the other three of us really don’t get them and he’s already had two since he started school.

  6. Hope everyone is healthy and y’all have a great weekend!
    This week has sucked here, too and I’m struggling with even being nice much less showing love right now:(

  7. Sorry you had a rough week. My week was supposed to be super busy, but it got turned upside down by 3 snow days – one of them very unexpected. Therefore, it was actually kind of leisurely (except Wednesday), BUT now I’m way behind on work stuff. Ugh!!! Anyway, I hope you can enjoy the weekend and that next week is a better one!

    • Three snow days!? We had none. It was supposed to be our first full week of school since December, but of course it wasn’t for us because of the sick day.

      And I got way behind on work!

  8. Pretty cool “realizing my three life dreams – to be a writer, a photographer, and a mother”, How many people can say they are living the dream life? Not perfect I am sure, but pretty cool indeed.

  9. Oh man Tamara I’m so sorry your week hasn’t been so great but I’m still loving how you pulled off an AAW all by yourself. If anyone can do it Tamara can! As for your houseguest we were hoping to be invited but Rebecca is also a good choice, Madison will be jealous she didn’t get to see Des. 🙂 I hope next week is much better for you. Here’s lots of hugs coming from snowy Colorado.

    • If this were a real question and not just in my head, it’s actually a tie between so many of you. I just picked her because we sort of go back-and-forth giving each other shout outs. You know you’re number one on my list!

  10. Absolutely awesome! Hugs and hope this weekend and next week are better! 🙂 I totally rehearse phone calls before I make them…as for conversations with hubby, that doesn’t work at all. LOL! I would for sure want to pass the same way, my grandmother was 95 when she passed away about five days after finding out that she had stage 4 ovarian cancer. Up to that point, she still lived on her own, in her own apartment, did her own shopping and everything else. I love it when they are fiesty at that age! LOL! I would surely want to have my mind, what little that is left, after 3 kids and 2 hubby’s! 😉 Have a great weekend, my friend!

    • What a story about your grandmother! So glad it ended well for her and she didn’t suffer.
      It’s so funny about rehearsing conversations. Do they ever really go the way we think they will? No, because we never know what the other person will say!

  11. Whoa I don’t want to think about how/when I’ll go…I am way too nervous as is! LOL Have I told you lately you are gorgeous? That hooded photo should be in a gallery! And yes, phenomenal hair in your family.

  12. “I’ve got one hand in my pocket and the other is giving a high five” man I love Alanis. I’m gonna go find her on Spotify. You guys do have some great hair. I think I am starting to figure you out by these ask aways — whenever there is a if this or that you always choose what I think you would choose. And I love it.

  13. How that your weekend is off to a good start Tamara, with lots of cookies. I love that you have been singing, music really uplifts me. Well, I should say most music. Great questions and number 6 was interesting because my parents are taking the two routes that are mentioned and both are really hard to watch age. I think I would pick keeping my mind though…

    • That’s interesting what you are witnessing with your parents and what you would pick. And I am very sorry about your parents and any discomfort they have!
      I do hope we get cookies this weekend. If everyone is healthy tomorrow, my sister will visit!

  14. sorry about your sucky week. I have spent more time visiting people in hospitals in 2015 than I ever care to repeat. but thankfully, nothing has been too serious and everyone is one the mend!

    I would only want to be famous as a result of a hard work leading to a big personal accomplishment: like a best selling book, or getting the cover of National Geographic. I do not subscribe to this reality TV concept of being famous for doing nothing, and having zero talent. Something heroic would of course be nice — but if you got famous for it, it kinda takes the “selfless” aspect away.
    Oh wait!! If Stan Lee created a new female super hero based on me; I’d totally be okay with that too!!! LOL

    Just one person for dinner? No way I could just choose one person. I’ll start with Stephen King perhaps though. If I could bring someone back from the dead: definitely Audrey Hepburn. she was beautiful and Good, and just an amazing woman.

    • I really wanted to bring someone back from the dead and have my father come over for dinner. I think that would be fascinating to show him what has changed since 1984. Namely, us. But also technology!

  15. I’m sorry about the stomach bug… no bueno! I hope everyone is feeling better.
    I enjoyed your condensed story of your life in FOUR minutes.
    You’re famous to me, Tamara. 🙂 I’m quite sure I will read all three, four or more of you books one day. I cannot wait.
    XOXO

  16. Oh my gosh! These are the same questions that Sheldon and Penny answered on last night’s episode of The Big Bang Theory. Except for the four minutes they had to stare into each other’s eyes without saying anything. Great questions and answers for Ask Away Friday. Have a terrific weekend!

  17. I love all of your posts but I really look forward the questions on Fridays! I wish all bloggers did posts like this because I enjoy getting to know them. That said, one of these days I would like to do my own Q & A or at least a get to know me list. Your perfect day is so close to spot on of what mine would be. That was eerie in a good way. Specifically what you said about the weather – you and I are on the exact same page to the degrees 🙂 Telling my partner – I’ve been asking him for the past 6 months to “talk” to me like he always did. Yes dogs talk, well mine did because I listened. In the meantime I will come to your blog for some calm, inspiration and understanding, Tamara! Speaking of dogs – I’m a send them running to hide, cover their ears, atrocious singer. But last night at work I was fumbling through the lyrics to the Road Runner Theme. Yep 🙂 I LOVE your black and white photo! OMG…trying to think of the most appropriate way to say it. Oh heck I will say it…it is really sexy and mysterious. Have a great day, my wonderful friend 🙂

    • Do you mean you would like to do 10 questions with another blogger, or on your own? There are so many good links full of questions out there!
      I always want this to be a place of peace and calming. Sexy mysteriousness is cool too.

      • I have thought for a long time that it might (bold, underlined, italicized) be a lot of fun to do a 10 questions with a certain, awsome blogger friend of mine *ahem*. But, I squirm a bit at what questions she might ask me. And even more daunting is what questions I would ask HER that haven’t been asked before. I can say one unique thing is that my questions asked would be from a guy’s standpoint 🙂

  18. I love you so much!!!!! And I miss you!!!! Unfortunately I can relate to the crumby weekly feelings. My day job has been consuming me and I’m having this huge internal battle between slaving for a dollar and wanting to write and read, and grow into the future I REALLY want. Your dinner shoutout has affirmed what i already know- that I don’t belong under fluorescent lights! I belong behind my desk or at dinner tables with my Tamara!!!!!! Actually your whole post affirms that. Reading that you rehearse serous conversations lol is so me. My rehearsal vs reality are so far apart it’s a joke. That body/mind question is too much!!! I would hate to have a sharp mind with a deteriorating body (torture) but my mind is everything! So yeah, I pick mind too. Oh and news flash!! You are famous. How do you not know that??? I love you gf!!!!!!!!!! Save that seat for me!!!!!!!

    • Oh no! I’m so sorry about the day job. You definitely belong at a home office or somewhere outside or at my dinner table. Take your pick.
      Love you and miss you!!

  19. I’m with you on the bad weeks, and I’m sorry it’s sucked. I loved these questions btw…seriously good ones.Cheers to the weekend and a better week! And that pic of scarlet by the window…ART!

  20. I hope that the kiddos are feeling better. Bad weeks are the worst. But this post? Loved it, especially the story at the end. Your perfect days sound perfectly perfect – sounds kind of like San Francisco minus the moose 🙂 And I believe that the consensus is that you and Cassidy have spectacular hair!

  21. I’m sorry you had such a rough week. Sounds like me two weeks ago – and it did get better :)! I really enjoyed this – I’ve been looking for something similar to write about on my blog so I’ll have to check out the New York Times article. Your answers were so thoughtful and beautiful. Have a great weekend.

  22. I would love to be famous in the same manner – still unrecognized. 🙂 Ha I definitely rehearse beforehand, especially during serious conversations with anyone but especially Samuel. It’s a tough situation when you pre-plan your words but sound like a bubbling idiot when the moment comes. I’m way better with written communication than verbal, I’m trying to catch up but it may take some years. 😛 Hope you’re all feeling better in the home and stay warm!! Have a great weekend Tamara! -Iva

    • I’m definitely the bumbling idiot! I’m very bad at confrontation. It makes my heart race.
      The kids are still a little under the weather, but it’s March. Daylight savings is coming. Good health is coming!

      • Same here!! it’s depressing and frustrating since Samuel isn’t and he’s very sharp.. It takes me so much time to compose my thoughts and say it. Sometimes I give up and just write it.. When I write thoughts become clear and so do my feelings. I’m just not the best with verbal confrontation – not with people really close to me whom I am careful of offending. Let’s be clear, if I’m being confronted or confronting anyone else whose opinion doesn’t matter to me I go hard and I’ll let you know what’s up but with partner’s I feel it’s different.. we’re more sensitive towards their needs and know they can hurt us if they want to. It’s like tight-roping on a double-edged sword, tread lightly LoL!

        Good health for me is on standby as I fight this bug.. I’m trying to fight it before it kicks in full gear. Let’s hope i win! :'(

  23. You’re famous in the blogging world too! When I first commented on your blog, I didn’t expect that you’d actually comment on my blog too because you had so many comments already. Apparently you did visit my blog. I can imagine you now replying to fan mails!
    Such a tough question about body and mind. I guess I’d choose mind too.. Geezzz

    • Of course I commented back! It’s what blogging is all about to me! We’re all famous together.
      The question was hard. I think I changed my mind a few times!

  24. I rehearse things in my head and then completely blow them as soon as I open my mouth. It’s hard for me to talk about big things without crying – it’s weird and annoying. I totally undermine myself!

  25. Loved your four minute life story.
    I hope that your kids are starting to feel better. I’m so ready for March. I hoping spring brings better weather and less illnesses.

    • Usually it does. I feel like the illnesses this winter have been particularly bad, but maybe they always are. This was just my first one with two kids in school.

  26. I love that you used those questions! I’ve heard about this quiz/research project quite a bit lately. First I saw it on the Rhett & Link Good Mythical Morning Show, which I watch with my son every morning, and then Penny and Sheldon did the quiz on The Big Bang Theory last week.
    I sure hope the sickness is finally gone from your house and things are looking up for next week! (P.S. – only 7 more sleeps until Daylight Savings time!)

  27. I hope you’re all feeling better! I’d love to have RF for tea too…I think our kids would get along after they stopped throwing things and pulling each others hair. I love that you sing to Des. I sing with my kids all the time,,,and we dance a lot. I hope you live a long, happy life.

  28. Mandy Len Catron’s essay is fascinating as are the questions from the study! Alan Rickman would be an awesome dinner guest. His voice is so soothing. After dinner, I would make him read something from Sense and Sensibility or Harry Potter 🙂

  29. I hope everyone is well in your household. I’ve heard the stomach bug is pretty bad. Knock on the heavy wood I’ve managed to avoid it.

    These were some super tough questions. My grandmother is the only one still alive, she is in her 90s (My dad’s mom). My grandpa (mothers side) lived into his 90s too. I’m in my upper 30s and feel horrible body wise. I’m not really sure I want to be on Earth til I’m 90 (God willing though).

  30. Sorry you had such rough week, but I love how even in your rough weeks, you can pull of a post like this. You take questions and turn them into amazing insights. Love your answers. Feel better. xo

  31. Love it! I hope to live to be 100 and healthy with a sound mind. The older I get, the faster time flies. I swear I was just 20, and I turn 40 this month.

  32. I should feel so lucky to have actually met Rebecca for lunch! And yes, she really is as beautiful as she looks in her photos!

    Sorry to hear you’ve had a rough few weeks, Tamara. Sending out all the positive vibes your way.

  33. “I got one hand in my pocket, and the other hand is smokin’ a cigarette”… or “Playin’ the PIANO”… oh, the good ol’ days… do I remember. Now I will be singing that song in my head until I fall asleep.

    Between her and Tori… ahhh….

    Girl, you and me both!!!

    *I was secretly hoping you would pick me to have for dinner* #notpartoftheplan?

    Hee hee…

    • Want to see a Tori show together?

      So for that question, I wish I had worded it differently. The reality is that there are so many of you that are tied for first place. And yes, you are definitely one of them. I picked Rebecca because we have been disconnected lately. Nothing personal, but work. So I wanted to give her a shout out. But you know you are first place in my heart!

  34. 1. I can’t blame you for picking Rebecca. 95% of America (including Puerto Rico and Guam) probably would. I’d be your bus boy and steal your leftovers.

    2. I’d choose the 30-year-old body. My mind is a muddled beautiful mess at 43. I hope it continues. At least with the body of a 30-year-old, i could do more of what bounces around in my mind.

    3. I’m most thankful for animal cookies, warm hands, and those incredible rings of love that surround me, close at my elbow and at arms length and beyond. Thank you for being in them.

    • I can see that having the body would be important. I think in some ways, it’s so important because of feeling well and never suffering. On the other hand, I just want my mind until then. So confusing.
      Can’t we just pick them both, have some cookies and hold hands altogether?

  35. Amazing, last time I was comment 101 and today I am comment 100! The blogger in me is happy for you for having all of these wonderful comments, and the OCD in me is happy that I get to be close to such a rounded out number! Anyhoo, my husband and I did the questions from the NYT and it was a great time. I love your answers, and you and Cassidy do have amazing hair! I am like you, I’d like to be famous for something that doesn’t make me instantly recognizable. Ideally it would be writing. That’s not to say that I wouldn’t love singing to an arena full of fans though 😉

    • If you want to hear the real OCD in me, it’s that I can’t stand when one of my posts has 99 comments. In fact, I looked today and one from a couple weeks ago only has 99. I seriously nearly double responded to a post just to get to 100!
      I shouldn’t admit such things.
      I love the OCD in you!
      May we both find comfortable fame in things that we love.

  36. This was a really fun AAF. My superficial takeaway: you have a thing for good hair. Also, our youngest both like to be sung to before bed. And you write an awesome life story in 4 minutes.

  37. Tucker didn’t cry at birth either. And rarely, when he was tiny. He has always had super powers though. Super sensitive. He tried so hard to not cry tonight at his first tae kwon do class when he didn’t know how to do something. Love love you and you DO have cool hair and so does Cassidy. Love the way you did this, sweet one!

  38. Loved this AAF! What fun!

    I love Rebecca-faith! I would totally have her over for dinner… feed her lots of wine and laugh like crazy.

    I’m so sorry it’s been a rough month for you. Wishing you a happy and healthy March!
    xoxo

    Oh and yeah… you guys have FANTASTIC hair! Seriously! Gorgeous.

  39. Awwww loved this!!! And I want Rebecca-Faith over for dinner too!!!! Did you know I’m actually going to meet her in person next week if all goes according to plan?! I’m gonna be in her home town 🙂 Yeeeee!!!!!

    You and your husband DEFINITELY have great hair, I’ve noticed it many times. And I loved your bonus answer, made me laugh out loud at the Ewok sounds lol.

    • I have to admit I’m envious. I think you’re both wonderful and I would love to meet both of you. She is certainly someone I want for dinner, but I was more giving her a shout out because I know she hasn’t been as involved in blogging lately and she wants to. In reality, you are all tied for first place

  40. You are famous to me, Tamara Like Camera. Every time I come here my eyes are soothed by all the beauty – of the images and your soul, which comes through loud and clear. 🙂

  41. You definitely were able to get so much written, coherently, in just four minutes. I think you’re famous, I would love to be able to pass you on the street and ask you for your autograph. I would love to live to 100, but I don’t have any family references to see that it could happen. I would want the body of a 30 year old, because I think having the mind would be a lot less happy and caught up in the day-to-day, where I feel like a 100 year old would just be happy with what’s around them.

    • I think the body of a 30-year-old would be incredible because of not having to suffer or feel pain. Assuming it’s a healthy 30-year-old. And I would totally ask you for your autograph too! We could be autograph buddies.

  42. I think your life story is pretty incredible. And I like this idea! Taking those 37 questions and asking yourself some of them, turn it into a blog post. I love it! #oldschoolblogging

  43. Found it!! Must have missed this one in all the pre-vacation hustle and bustle. I like how you tell your life story – has there been an answer to the suspenseful ending yet? 🙂
