Sunday Stealing....Meme #1

As a fairly newly initiated blogger, I have been in the dark in terms of the wold of memes. I recently came across the term, and find that this might be a cool addition to my blog. For those of you who don't know what a meme is, here's what The Daily Meme says on the subject:
In the context of web logs / 'blogs / blogging and other kinds of personal web sites it's some kind of list of questions that you saw somewhere else and you decided to answer the questions. Then someone else sees them and does them and so on and so on.

Here's today's meme, found on a blog called Sunday Stealing.

1. What is your favorite sit-down restaurant? I love Cheesecake Factory...MMMM!!

2. What food could you eat for 2 weeks straight and not get sick of it? My mom's chilaquiles....and flan. Mmmmm...
(This meme is making me hungry!)

3. Have you ever had anything removed from your body? Just two moles. I recently had a metal plate put IN my body, though.

4. What is the last heavy item you lifted? Does my 30-pound daughter count?

5. Have you ever been knocked unconscious? No...thank goodness! Never even fainted.

6. If it were possible, would you want to know the day you were going to die? Yes...if it were to be omorrow it would DEFINITELY change my to-do list today. LOL

7. If you could change your name, what would you change it to? I don't know..I didn't like my name growing up (too many playground jokes rhyming Estela and Fella.) but never considered what I'd WANT to be named instead. I do like my name now, though!
