I love to fold bath towels and line them up on color order in my linen closet. SOOOOOOOOOOOO Pretty.
6. What is your favorite meal to cook?
I've gotten pretty good at using my slow cooker and like preparing Sunday meals in it. My favorit meal to cook has to be something really quick and easy. However, the most fun I have with cooking is when I am trying a new recipe or experimenting with new spices or oils. Victor really enjoys my experiments because they usually turn out really good.

The most common meal is Albondigas, however, Victor's mom makes that!!!! I like when I don't have to cook - giving me time to take care of other things.

11. What is your most heartbreaking moment as a mom?
Every time one of my children has been hurt. When Allisa had to have stitches when she was almost 18 months. That was the hardest. I was so upset and wanted to cry, but couldn't so that she would stay calm as the doctor stitched the cut next to her eye.

Every night before they go to bed and every morning before I leave for work.
13. When was the last time you were told I love you?
