Lovely Sponsors {part 2} + Ad Space Giveaway!

I'd like to introduce you to a few more friends and sponsors for January! As I mentioned in my previous post, I asked these ladies a difficult question this month:
"If you could sit down for dinner with any three people {past, present or future?} who would you choose and why?" 
I asked this question because it is the most interesting question I have ever been asked on a job interview. When I asked why the interviewer had asked me it, he explained that you can learn a lot about a person's character, interests and heart by the answer to the question. I think you will find that reading their answers with this in mind will be very insightful!

If I could have dinner with any three people, this is who I would choose:
1. My grandpa. My mom's dad specifically. He died when I was about 5. I know that he wasn't perfect, but I'm certain that we would have had a special bond if he had lived longer. I would have definitely been a grandpa's girl.

2. The band Lady Antebellum. They are one of my favorite bands to listen to. I've seen them in concert one time, and you can just tell how very talented they each are, and I would love to hear their stories (and music, duh).

3. This one I'm going to cheat a little and say I would love to have dinner with my husband!! It sounds silly, but he is in school full time and working full time. Some weeks I feel like we never see each other! We are in desperate need of a date night, and dinner would be a great place to start :)

If I could sit down to a nice dinner with any three people, I would choose my three great grandmas that I had the privilege of knowing. I grew up with them as a part of my life and all three of them passed in the past 10 years or so. I have so many fond memories of them and I wish my husband was given the chance to know them like I did. Family is so important to the both of us and I know he would have absolutely loved them. I know they would be so proud of the woman I have become and I would love to sit down and tell them all about my husband, my job, and my son who will be here SOON!

If I could have dinner with 3 people I would have it with 

1) My Great Great Grandmother. I've become infatuated with this woman as of lately. I've been doing a ton of family history research at the Brooklyn History Museum this year and it's been like I've re-connected with so many people (even if they are all not alive) particularly her. I bet she would have been a blast to hang out with, why wasn't I born a 100 years ago? 

2) My best friend Helen who passed away 5 years ago. I miss her and wish I could tell her about everything I've done in my life, she would be proud, she "is" proud I feel. 

3) F. Scott Fitzgerald. He's my man.

Connect with Nicole here:
(I didn't want to not include the lovely Nicole from Real Life Reality, but haven't received her answer just yet…so maybe you should go ask her on her blog??)  :)

I'm just loving the answers to these questions!

In conclusion, here is the answer to who I'd love to sit down for dinner with now:
"My daughter Zion at age 30…It would be amazing to see a glimpse of her future self and hopefully see that she turned out okay with me as a parent, lol.  I think I'd really like the chance to sit down with Jesus (and one day I will have that experience)…I don't think I would question him at all, I'd just want to be in his presence and enjoy his company…to know him more, to hear his laugh.  Lastly, I'd like to sit down with my mother around the time she became pregnant with her first child, so that I could encourage her and tell her how much her daughters will love her, and to never lose touch with them."
My answers are so different than when I had that interview! {P.S. I didn't get the job…it came down to me and one other person…and it was my DREAM job, or so I thought, at the time.}  :)

Hey guess what!? I added a few entry options to the giveaway!!!  Wouldn't you just love more chances to win that shiny 200x300 button featured on the top right corner of my blog?!  Well, here is your chance!!!  Good luck!
