Another Meme

I saw this meme first over at Regina's blog, then at Meredith's, Ruth's and Dawn's... I hadn't planned on doing it myself, till I was asked personally by Ruth in an email this morning. So, here you go!

1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
I was going to be named Elizabeth, but right before I was born, my mom heard the name Jessica and liked it... My middle name is Jo, after my Grandmother Jo Ann. Although my mom's name is Josephine, so it is sort of after her as well. I guess my parents decided they liked they middle name Jo, since my next 2 sisters middle names are Jo as well! Jen was born on the feast of St. Joseph, so her Jo is for him, and by the time they had Jamie, they had a trend going with the girls names, all starting with J and middle name of Jo, so she got it as well!

2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
On Wednesday, when I turned 30.

3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING?
It's ok.

Turkey... Although, I would pass the lunch meat all together for one of these.

Yes, 5 here with me, and 1 little Saint in heaven.

Denim skirt, brown boots. (they are the tall boots, up to knees, but from the foot up is fabric, kinda like leg warmers~sound funny, but I LOVE them, since I'm in skirts all the time, and they are awesome for skirts in the winter since they keep your legs warm)

A bite of leftover chocolate birthday cake that my boys "built me."
