I've been tagged but my good blogger friend Shelley from Calypso in the Country. SO here it goes...

1.  Are you named after someone?  
I wish, I was named after a street. Actually my full name is Maria Claravel. Maria Clara is one of the most famous female literary character in a Philippine novel called "Noli Me Tangere"  and initially I thought I was named after her. But when I asked my mom, she nonchalantly said  "No, I named you after a street I saw, just around the corner from our first apartment"! Hah!

2.  When was the last time you cried?  
3 weeks or so ago, I got upset with a petty argument about the baby's name! LOL! My hubs was having 2nd thoughts about the name "Sophia" since he found out it was the most popular name in 2011 and 2013,  but I didn't care and I cried!!! Petty, petty, must be the hormones!;-)

3.  Do you have kiddos?
Yup, 2 boys and a little girl on the way - the center of my universe.

4.  If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?
YES definitely! We would have so much fun shopping together!!!!


5.  Do you have a guilty pleasure?
Have a weakness for anything chocolate - I have them everywhere from home to work. I also collect dolls - not the collectible and expensive one, Disney dolls!

I have more than these...

6.  Do you like handwriting?
Nope. My hand-writing is horrible!!!!!
 But I still write my "thank-you notes" & Christmas cards whenever I can!

7.  What is your favorite cereal?
Nestle's Koko Krunch - it's from the Philippines, my mom sends me a boxful from there! Super yummy, haven't found a substitute for it here yet!

Their feet. Yup, I have a foot fetish sort of... weird, but true. ;-)
