I love fashion magazines. My favorite fashion magazine is Marie Claire. My oldest sister has subscribed me to the magazine for years. Marie Claire is a high fashion magazine. It shares ideas for how to put together a fabulous outfit, as well as what the make up trends are, and usually features a high-profile celebrity on the cover.
One of my favorite sections of the magazine is in the very back. On the last page there is always a section titled, 20 Questions. It features an interview with a celebrity consisting of 20 questions. The way the celebs answer the questions always cracks me up. The answers are so prepared. No one I know answers questions the way celebrities do.
Today I thought I would answer the March issues’ 20 Question section myself. You could pick up a copy of the magazine and read Sarah Jessica Parker’s responses, but you already know everything about her. My answers will be the real deal. No pre-preparing ahead of time.
What brings you the greatest joy?
My husband. I would have said my children, but they make me nuts sometimes. Besides my husband is the one who helped me create my kids.
What are your vices?
Wine and lipstick. They go together. You drink wine and the lipstick stays on the glass, so you have to reapply.
What is on your nightstand?
I don’t have one. I have my husband’s dresser that is covered with books I never have time to read.
What is your greatest indulgence?
Eating out. I love eating out. I would be happy to never eat a meal cooked by me again.
What should every woman try at least once in her life?
A Brazilian wax. Just kidding. No one should ever try that. I think every woman should travel out of their country.
What makes me laugh?
My kids. My boys are funny guys. They make me laugh almost as much as they make me yell.
What is the one thing people would be surprised to know about you?
If I could do a career do over I would be involved in the theater. I was a theater minor in college and loved it.
What is on your bucket list?
I have so many things on my list, but the top of the list would be travel to Chile and be a grandmother.
What is on your feet right now?
Boots and yellow socks.
How did you make your first dollar?
I sold Burpee seeds to neighbors as a kid. I walked door to door selling seeds. I did pretty well too. I made three bucks.
What superstition to do you believe in?
If you throw away a good photo of someone you love, something bad will happen to them.
What items in your closet do you wear the most?
Jeans. I have over 10 pairs of jeans. I love denim in an unusual way.
What is the best gift you have ever received?
My boys. I love them so, so much. They have brought me more joy than any material item I have every owned.
What is on your liquor shelf?
Nothing. I don’t have a liquor shelf.
What is on your kitchen counter?
Dirty dishes from breakfast. I decided to write a blog instead of clean the kitchen today.
What would you never leave home without?
Lipstick or lip gloss. I can’t function without color or moisture on my lips.
What movie has the greatest ending?
Shawshank Redemption. This movie is one of my all time favorites. The ending is perfect.
Who is on your guest list for dinner?
My siblings and their spouses, in-laws, my father and his wife, the boys godparents, former neighbors, parents of the boys’ friends from school, former roommate and his girlfriend, childhood friend and her family, my boys, and Bette Midler. Bette would be the entertainment.
What is the one thing you wish you had known when you were younger?
Stop holding onto anger and move on. I wasted too much time in my youth being upset with people.
