Carey Bailey - Allume 2014

1. What was your favorite food as a kid?

Melted cheese on a flour tortilla with a side of home cooked pinto beans in a tea cup with a dash of salt. Mmmmmm…the memories flooding me are so good right now.

2. What chore do you despise the most?

Laundry. I worked outside of the home till this last year and my sweet husband did the laundry for the first 7 years of our marriage. Now that I am working in the home I took on the laundry. IT.HAS.NO.END!!!!

3. If you could learn to do anything what would it be?

To play the drums. Like for real. Being a drummer in a cool chick rock band is on my dreams list.

 4. What do you do with 30 minutes of free time?

Really? 30 mins. What can you do in 30 minutes? I guess I would organize something. One of my priorities for the year is to have an organized life. I find if I give myself a small amount of time to tackle just one thing a week it pays off.

5. What would the dream birthday present be?

A trip. Give me an experience over a physical gift any day! Now what kind of trip is hard to say. I would take a week at Canyon Ranch Spa in Tucson, a cruise , a weekend of shows and sightseeing in NYC, or give me a staycation in Phoenix. It is all good!

I learned you can take the outside of a Clarisonic brush off and just use the inside to get into the hard to get a spots real good! I was excited!

7. What do you miss most about being a kid?

I miss doing Science Fair projects. I love the learning side of it but I mostly loved creating the presentation board and table. My favorite one was in the 4th grade when I figuring out why you are right side up on one side the spoon and upside down on the other side of a spoon. Do you know why?
