Everything's Your Business

Rule #4

Everything's Your Business

"Everything's your business doesn't mean you are a busybody, and it doesn't mean your life becomes all about work. When I say everything's your business, I mean treat everything you choose to do with as much importance as if you career depended on it. Everything's your business means that every job, person, and experience is worth your full attention."

-Bethenny Frankel, A Place of Yes-

I love this chapter. Mainly because Bethenny talks ALOT about how no matter what you are doing, do it to the best of your ability. This can be especially challenging when you are doing something that doesn't necessarily "fill your cup", say working in a restaurant as a 29 year old college graduate. Hmmmm, sound familiar? Lol.

The first three rules are vital when moving along to step four. Everything's your business means treating everyone you come in contact with, employees you may have, people you sell a house too, parents of students you deal with daily like they can all have a direct impact on your "business" later on in life.

She shares about a particular employee whom she hired as a coat check girl for an event several years ago who is now a very successful party planner for high end events and celebrities. This same girl worked her tail off checking those coats and going above and beyond to do it to the best of her ability. She came from a place of yes, the place where deep down you know you should be coming from even at jobs that "don't matter" or feel "unimportant". She later ended up taking Bethenny's job as a different company when Bethenny left and is now the marketing manager for Red Bull North America. Not to shabby!

I also really enjoyed this chapter because she talks about knowing what you, as an individual, stand for. It is also important to know what exactly is your business? How can you have a clear vision of what your business is if you don't know what your business is? Confused yet? :)

"Having your own personal mission statement focuses you in a very powerful way. It helps you see exactly how to make everything your business, because you see what fits with your mission."

-Bethenny Frankel, A Place of Yes-

A recent event took this statement close to home. I dealt with a situation where a person in power said something highly inappropriate to a young lady. We all have situations like this, and we all have to ask ourselves what we stand for. What is okay in our eyes? What type of work environment is okay to work in? When do you stand up for people who feel they are treated poorly? I think this is very important in any business: to make sure even when other people may not act with integrity or honesty, I still do. I stand up for my beliefs and what is right, because that is my business. This is an extremely specific example but, hopefully, you get the point.

One of the best things she says in this chapter is this: She realized the supreme importance of producing high quality and learned to do everything well no matter what the job or task. Take time to do the small things. Go the extra mile, show people why you're different and stand above the rest. She also talks about how if you don't do whatever job you're doing well, you won't ever know how you truly feel about it. I can vouch for this one. I do my job (or strive to) the best of ability daily and still know, I'm meant for something much bigger than this one.

When you make Everything your business you shouldn't be afraid to take risks, try something new, put yourself out there. Because regardless if it ends great or horribly, you still tried something! And, you never know who you may encounter or make contact with along the way. Could lead to bigger and better things!

I'll leave you with a great quote Bethenny used in her book (this one's for you Dad!):

"The quality of a person's life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field."
-Vince Lombardi-

I have faith that regardless of what I'll do, I'll succeed. Because one things is true in my life, I grew up learning the value of working hard, doing the right thing, and putting my all into whatever it is I may have to do (versus choosing to do). I think that's part of maturing. And learning that, as my dad loves to tell us, life isn't fair. The fair only comes once a year, and that's in October.

Weekend Wrap Up

This weekend flew by!!


Woke up, Mom came over to take me to my doctor's appointment and, of course, grab some lunch. We also did a little bit of shopping and found a ton of cute things I'd love to have. After, Dave met us and we headed off to the Grand Opening of Texas Roadhouse in Hulen. Free food is also good, regardless if I eat it every. day.


Woke up before the crack of dawn and drove my parents to the airport. I actually made myself go to the grocery store on my way home so it was over with and headed home for a nap. After I came out of my coma, we got ready to meet some friends out for a movie and dinner. We met our 3D movies buds to see the new Pirates of the Caribbean at the Movie Tavern in downtown Ft. Worth. We also wandered over to the cute restaurant down the block. It was our first night out in several weeks so we had a good time.


After sleeping in (and I mean, sleeping in till noon), I got up for a little breakfast action to start the day. We kept telling ourselves we felt like we were suppose to be somewhere, but couldn't figure out anything so we chilled out a little bit.

MeMaw flew in today so we headed over to my in-law's house to make some dinner and wait for her arrival. It was good to see her since we haven't since our trip to Georgia last year.

We also went to visit Dairy Queen after dinner for a little blizzard action. Yumm-o!


I woke up for my morning run and ended up bringing home this sweet girl:

Although, I don't know what her future holds since she is a Houdini dog and keeps escaping! Maybe that's how she got lost in the first place! She's super sweet and very timid, so that tells me she's been on her own for awhile or was abused at her last home. Most dogs aren't that skid dish. Dave's immediate reaction was "She can stay till tomorrow but after that, we're calling the shelter." He is now leaning more towards, "Maybe this is a new running buddy for you."

[one] Would you rather go to a bbq or picnic?
BBQ. I like picnics and all but unless it's 75 with little wind, it's too hot and windy during the Texas summer heat to attempt a picnic. BBQ's are fun because they are usually held in some one's backyard :)

[two] Would you rather go bra-less or panty-less?
HA! Bra-less, for sure.

[three] Would you rather go on a $5000 shopping spree at your favorite store or go on a $5000 vacation?
If someone wants to give me five grand to spend on a vacation, I'm packing as of now!

[four] Would you rather eat escargot or sauteed crickets?
Ewww. Neither.

[five] Would you rather go on amazing race or survivor?
Good question. Probably Amazing Race. I'm all for "roughing it" but I don't know if I could survive in some of the conditions of Survivor.

[six] Would you rather be hot or cold?
COLD! Dave and I keep our house pretty cool, mainly because when I'm hot, I'm cranky!

[seven] Would you rather go to the beach or the lake?
Either one is good for me! I love them both!

[eight] Would you rather not shave your legs for a month in the summer or your armpits?
Strange one! I don't know I could do either. I shave just about everyday. I wear too many dresses and sleeveless shirts in the summer to not shave. I think my husband appreciates that too! :)

Act on it, Rule #3

I sincerely hope that if you do read my blog, these little snipets from Bethenny's book are as helpful to you as they are to me. I find myself anticipating the next chapter of her book, just ready for the next rule and how it unfolded in her life.

Rule #3 is Act on It.

Rule one and two aren't super important unless you take Rule #3 and actually do something about it.

"Act on it means taking positive control of your life, and actually doing something about your goals. It means taking real, tangible steps forward. You stop thinking about start doing, even if you aren't sure where it will lead. It's time to start shaking things up and making changes in your life, big or small. Rules #3 helps you put things in motion, so your life can start unfolding the way you want it to."
-Bethenny Frankel, A Place of Yes-

She talks all about her many jobs in this chapter and how each job played a role in her career as it is now. The jobs you may hate at the time but somehow found their way into what she is doing present day. Whether it be contacts she had made years ago helped later on in life, the skills she acquired while doing event planning helped her to be a better business woman, or how she attended bartending school to pass the time ending up being crucial because now she has a liquor empire and figured out so much about drink mixes and the demands women have for a good drink with low calories.

I feel like in today's society, sometimes it's so hard to make a job switch. You get stuck in a rut of having to make "x" amount of dollars to pay the bills, you have responsibilities as an adult so people just stay at whatever they job have because they simply. can't. move.

I'm very lucky in the sense that Dave found something {one} he is great at {two} allows me to take some time and think about what it is I want. Dave and I have also been smart about our choices. We don't live outside our means, we aren't extravagant people who spend our money on things we simply do not need, nor have we tried to create a life that simply is not us. We have been smart with what choices we make. Do I sometimes wish I had a SUV I can drive around? Yes. Does Dave wish he had a bigger boat he could cart people around on? Yes. Do I wish at times I had new furniture, new flooring, a fully decorated house? Absolutely. But you know what, as nice as those things are to have, we have both agreed not to put ourselves in a hole in order to get those things. Immediate gratification rarely has a positive outcome at the end.

We have put ourselves into a place where I can go back to school if I choose, be picky about what job I take, take time to look inside and find my choice of what I want to do. And, that's what this chapter is about. Going outside your comfort zone to try new things. Sometimes you'll love it, sometimes you'll hate it. Bethenny is big in this chapter about getting out there and doing something about it. I think it's interesting to read about her life, all the mishaps, failures, achievements, and how she turned each one into a good thing because she was coming from A Place of Yes. Not sitting around crying about how her great idea failed or didn't turn out the way she hoped.

She also shares about Focus Noise, which to her definition is "noise that can get in the way of this process of self-discovery and taking action." (Bethenny Frankel, A Place of Yes). And yes, I'm making sure to give her the credit! HA!!!

This can come from yourself, people in your life, people you encounter along the way, people who tell you it's a horrible idea or plan. Whatever. It can be TV, that little voice inside you that says you'll never be skinny so stop trying, the Internet. All of it. She also discusses excessive worry. It's like she wrote this book for me, because that pretty sums me up to a tee. I doubt myself with any new idea I have, question if I could even do it, give in to what others might think of me. But I've come to this conclusion, none of that matters. None of it. Who cares what my friends think? So what if people think I'll fail. At least I'd be doing something about whatever it is I want to change. And, I'm sure there is a lesson along the way.

"Take a deep breathe and calm down........so you can be sensible. Do it now. You don't have to have a master plan. You just have to muster the will the act. It all comes down to saying yes. Acting on it-making real things happen in real life-coming from a place of yes."
-Bethenny Frankel, A Place of Yes-

Rule #2: Find Your Truth

Bethenny's second rule is all about finding your truth, whether it be related to relationships, career, friends, how ever "finding your truth" relates to you.

"You have to ask yourself what's genuine and true for you-not for your parents (break the chain), not for your friends, not for your siblings or your school or your society, but for you. It's the question of a lifetime, and it can take a lifetime to really answer it, but you still have to keep asking."
-Bethenny Frankel, A Place of Yes-

As I read this chapter, the past year just really stuck out to me. Bethenny talks alot about her relationships in this chapter. What she learned specifically in each one and how she found her passion for cooking, along with finding her Skinny Girl calling. For me, finding my truth is defined as what is my true calling career wise.

Over a year ago, I felt a real calling for teaching. I had graduated from college and was seeking the new step in my life. I gave teaching so much thought and prayer and really felt like it was what I was suppose to be doing. After a few very disappointing events, I re-evaluated if that was what the next step for me would be. Looking back, I'm glad it worked out the way it did. If I had gone through the summer training and landed a job, I would more than likely be laid off right now with everything going on in the education world. And then I would have been so upset I paid that much money for my certification and been unemployed. Funny how life works out huh?

I've been floating around the past 8 months, applying for job after job with no real direction. Things I think are working in my favor haven't, jobs I thought were perfect for me simply didn't happen, and so I just stopped. For the past few months I've been stuck. Of my own doing. No real motivation to look inside and find out what it is I love. What could I do for the rest of the my life (or at least the next 20 years) that I would find joy from?

This is something I've especially given alot of thought to over the past two weeks. Having time to rest and let your mind wander has been really a blessing for me. And something I've learned from reading this book is, sometimes you just don't know until you've tried it. People have great ideas sometimes, but never act on them simply out of fear. What if I fail? What if no one wants what I'm offering? What if I put in all this effort and turns out I'm horrible?

If you live out of fear, I think a very important part of the journey is missed. If you never try anything new, you're settling. Now, this isn't to say that people who do have a calling and truly enjoy their jobs should go out and try something new. I'm simply saying this as it relates to me.......someone who really hasn't found her "career" yet or what she wants to do.

"Everything that happens to you, each experience, each stumble or achievement, is another piece, and the more the puzzle comes together, the more clearly you start to see where the next pieces should go. But nobody would blame you for not knowing where one puzzle piece out of a thousand is supposed to go, when you've only got one corner of the puzzle put together. Be patient. Your life is the puzzle, and it's challenging to put it together, even if you sometimes spend too much trying to shove a piece into the wrong space. At some point, you figure out that you're doing it wrong, and you try a different piece."
-Bethenny Frankel, A Place of Yes-

So simple isn't it? HA!

The waiting is over

Just giving you an update on my status.

I worked yesterday and started really cramping during my shift. I made it home, ate some dinner, and prepared myself for what was to come. I knew this was it.

Sunday night was probably the most painful, worst night I've ever had (physically speaking that is). I didn't sleep at all, but did manage to watch Sex and the City 2 twice along with Runaway Bride (so at least there was some good entertainment on tv!)

My dad came over mid morning to take care of me and my mom headed over after she got off work. Today has been spent sleeping and resting, but I'm so glad the worst appears to be over. I'm also so grateful my parents were able to come over and just be here for me. It was very helpful and the dogs even enjoyed it!

I'm doing surprisingly well emotionally and feel pretty good. I'm still in some pain but I think tomorrow is going to be much better!

Thank you to everyone who has prayed for us, checked in on us, called and text me with kind words. We have definitely felt those prayers and I can not say thank you enough. We feel so blessed to have so many people praying for us!

I'm looking forward to feeling back to normal and get back in the swing of things. I must say though, I have enjoyed having people around waiting on me! :)

{one} What is your favorite rainy day activity?
Ah, so simple. It's called my bed and sleep. :) Who has a different rainy day activity?

{two} What time do you go to bed?
It depends on what day it is. If I'm working, not till late. If I'm off, give me a blanket and my couch and I'm snoozing before the tv is on. We usually lay down about 10 though.

{three} How many magazines do you subscribe to?

{four} Did you sell all your belongings before you thought the world was ending yesterday?
Um, no. I'm sorry but anyone in their right mind would know (regardless if you're a believer or not) no one can predict the world ending. The bible tells us no one will know, not even the angels in heaven.

{five} What's your beauty obsession?
Getting my hair done, nails and toes done, tanning, make-up. I LOVE IT ALL!

{six} If you could wear only one designer/brand for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Any sort of sundress with yellow box flip flops. I'm not super into labels, what ever I find that looks good on me, wins. I prefer a bargain!

{seven} What's your summer must haves?
Flip flops, sunglasses, sun dresses, tank tops, jean shirts :)

{eight} Do you make weekly dinner menus?
Yeah, so I've tried this. And, no, it does not work in this family. My husband eats about 2.5 things so trying to create a menu around those things is pretty boring! I'm thinking I need that Deceitfully Delicious book, then I could cook all sorts of fun foods without him knowing! And, my mind is turning..........HA!

Breaking the Chain

The first chapter in Bethenny Frankel's book is all about breaking the chain. What chain do you ask?

It's all about childhood. You read the whole first chapter and just feel so sorry for her. She tells about her relationships with her mother, father, and step-father, how each of them treated her, made her feel, and how now that she is a mother, breaking the chain of how she "could have been" is so important to her.

I'll be honest, I had a great childhood. My parents were so wonderful at creating memories for us and with us. We took trips every summer to different places all over the country, they were at every game we cheered at, every recital, every volleyball game. My mom took us Wet 'n Wild so many times over the course of my life I can't even count. We never had to worry about being clothed, feed, or un-loved. We were surrounded by grandparents and an aunt that adored us and would do anything for us. My parents did a great job and still to this day do a great job creating memories.

I'm not going to say everything was perfect all the time, nothing is. We did things to push their buttons and make them mad or disappointed, we made poor choices I'm sure made them so upset and heart broken. But, as I read about her life, I look back on mine and feel so grateful. She took so many of her childhood issues into future relationships with her as an adult, which caused much heart ache and dismay.

What I took from Break the Chain, according to Bethenny, is simply your past hurts, failures, disappointments, do not have to affect your future. It's about coming from 'A Place of Yes' and controlling how you want to re-act in situations, treat your children, husband, friends, etc. It's about deciding who you want to be and breaking the chain of who you think you should be.

"Break the chain means recognizing the patterns you are carrying forward in your life, patterns that belonged to your past, and choosing to go a different way when those patterns are destructive."
-Bethenny Frankel-

Friday Five

[one] I have had a few days this week to rest and get some things done around the house, which makes me feel SO good. I spent a little time going through my closet and purging! It was time. I had so many clothes that I never wear and needed to get rid of. A little spring cleaning is always good.

[two] I got back into the gym this week and while it felt great, I LITERALLY (insert Rob Lowe from Parks and Recreation) had to drag myself there. It's going to be a slower process than before because all I feel like doing is sleeping and watching tv. Just laziness. :(

[three] My favorite shows ended last night:

I hate season finales, really because that means cheesy summer shows and bad fill-ins. But, I'm glad we have the DVR so we can watch them over and over again. Dave will hate these shows by the end of summer. HA!

[four] My girl Bethenny was (or is) in Dallas today doing a Skinny Girl signing. I'm sad I didn't go! Truth be told, I didn't feel like standing in line for hours and hours plus I didn't have anyone who was able to go with me. Oh well. Sometimes it's almost better not to meet your favorite celebrities because they almost never live up to what you have in your head. I say this as if I know from a previous experience, and I don't. Lol. I'm just sayin'!

[five] I'm making myself get up on this couch and do a list full of things I need to get done.
-clean my bathroom
-get ready for work
-eat some lunch

***I'm thinking if I can just get some lunch, the rest will take care of themselves? :)

A Place of Yes

So, I started this yesterday and already love it. What's funny is that she writes exactly like she talks! It's awesome. And, she gets straight to the point about what it is she is talking about. It's all about 10 rules for getting your life where you want it to be.

[one] Break the Chain
[two] Find your truth
[three] Act on it
[four] Everythings your business
[five] All Roads lead to Rome
[six] Go for Yours
[seven] Separate from the Pack
[eight] Own it
[nine] Come together
[ten] Celebrate!

I'll keep you posted and hope to write a little about each rule as it relates to me. Should be fun and interesting!

I'm off to go make some dinner for the hubby!

Just sharing

How I'm doing..........

I never thought going through this would be so emotional and sad. You read all these stories of women going through the process of miscarriage and while you feel for them, you don't really understand it until you are the one experiencing it. I find when I'm surrounded by people, I'm ok. I worked yesterday and it went pretty well considering the circumstances. I think it's just helpful to stay busy and keep my mind on something other than "When will it happen?"

My sister came to stay the night last night. She really just ended up driving over after I had called her when I got off work and all we did was watch a little tv and fall asleep on the couch. It was still helpful though. I went over to my parents between shifts and it felt good to be surrounded with people who loved me. My mom has been just great through this. And sometimes being hugged by your dad is just what you need.

I also got a really sweet message from a friend sharing her experience. I thought it'd be hard to hear stories about other people but I could relate to so many things she shared. And, it made me feel better about the grieving process. It's amazing to me how sad you can be about a baby who hasn't even fully developed or you felt move or anything. My heart really aches for the moms out there who loose their baby or child further along in pregnancy. I couldn't imagine.

As for today, I spent the majority of the day watching bad reality tv and napping. Dave doesn't really nap, his therapy involves work. Crazy man!

He spent his day doing this:

He moved all his "manly" stuff out to the newly decorated garage. I actually prefer it this way. He spends hours out there! He trimmed out the entire back wall of the garage with old fencing. It has a nice cabin feel to it.

And, I love this sign. My mom found it. It's hanging above the door when you walk in. Just a little reminder for him to see every time he comes home. :)

Sad News for Friday the 13th

I really debated on writing this but I feel like I should. Mainly, because I started this blog as a way to document what has happened in our lives and this is part of it, so here I go........

April 4th I took a pregnancy test after I got off work and I was so surprised when it said "Pregnant". I was not expecting that at all so I was shocked to say the least. I ended up waking Dave up super late because I just couldn't believe it, I almost needed someone else to validate it or something.

We told my parents and Dave's parents that same week. They were uber excited as were we, but opted to not tell everyone for awhile.

We had our first appointment May 4th, which made me 8 weeks. The baby was measuring two weeks behind but had a strong heartbeat so we left optimistic but cautious. The doctor wanted to see us again 10 days later so here we are today.

Today's appointment proved what the doctor had talked to us about, the baby had grown but we lost the heartbeat. I kind of expected it to be honest, just had a feeling I guess. I was proud of myself for not completely loosing in front of the man, I waited until after when we got to IHOP instead. HA!

We now have two options, wait to miscarry naturally or have a D&C. Dave and I told our doctor we were going to digest it all and we'll make a decision. I'm sure we'll schedule the appointment but I have a feeling I'll miscarry before that will happen, even if we had scheduled the D&C today.

It's been a day of different emotions. Anger, sadness, confusion........I have to say Dave has been extremely loving and caring today. I'm so thankful for my husband. He is such a great man and so supportive. My parents have also been a great strength to me, somehow they always know what to say. Leslie said she knew I was calling to tell her bad news, maybe it's a twin thing?

On the positive side, we did get pregnant so that's a good sign. I'm trying very hard not to focus on the future and the 'what if's' though and just take it a day at a time. For now, I've been eating horribly all day and resting. Funny how food makes you feel better, even when it doesn't.

Tomorrow is a new day and I'm hoping to feel better.........I'm thinking that will take some time but positive thinking is the one number key when going through hard times. I know God has a plan, sometimes I question what exactly is in his plan for me, but I chalk that up to human nature.

Besides this post and talking to family about it, I'm really not into speaking about it all the time. It's exhausting and emotionally draining just thinking about it, little lone telling the story all the time.

I'll keep you posted though. And maybe say a little prayer for me and Dave? Just for some peace and strength to get through the next part. I know we'd appreciate it!

Spring is the time for babies!!

I've been to more babies this spring than ever I think! Everyone is having babies! :)

The latest shower I attended was for my sweet friend Amanda. She is having her second baby, a little boy (still nameless!). It was held at my work and we had lots of good food. The best thing about having showers at work is that there is already everything you need besides the food!

Gavan is the big brother and he got presents too! He wore a crown that said "I'm the big brother" along with a shirt. He was very impressed.

Erin and Charlotte did a great job at having lots of activities for the kids who came to keep them occupied (although, the best entertainment for them were the boys who showed up!).

I'll be sad when I don't have any more babies showers to attend!

Mother's Day and 29

First and foremost, Happy Mother's Day to three women who I highly admire and love dearly!

My mom, my sister Jenna, and my mother-in-law Sherry. I hope you all have a wonderful day and I'm sorry I can't spend time with you today due to that thing called "work".

You all are such great mother's and I'm thankful everyday for each of you in my life!


This is our first official Mother's Day picture with three generations of Pecor women!

(did anyone else notice that Avery and myself match?)

Jenna found this awesome place called Painting With a Twist (they have a TON of locations in the area btw) and it was SO much fun! They have the painting for the day on their website so you can pick which ever day you want depending on the painting. It just happened to worked out I picked a great painting for our birthday and Mother's Day.

Ta da!!!! Didn't they turn out great? Leslie's was actually the best. She is naturally an artist!!

We had a lovely day spent with family (boys included) with a nice lunch and some relaxation. I have a feeling we will be doing this again soon!

Friday Five

[one] This week has been EXHAUSTING. And, we have the "Super Bowl" of the restaurant industry coming up on Sunday. Mother's Day is the biggest day of the year for us so this week has been spent getting ready for that. I'll be one happy girl Monday because the only thing on my agenda is to lay around all day and rest. It's going to be great! (Sidenote: For all you people going out to eat that day, please be extra nice to all the restaurant people working. We would much rather be at home spending time with our mom's but instead are working hard to make your day nice. Just sayin').

[two] We went to eat at Razzoo's tonight and it was oh. so. yummy. And I'm not even a cajun type of girl. I think it's been years since I've eaten there. We also had great service, which I do not say very often.

[three] The weather has been gorgeous the past few days. I'm sad though I haven't had time to soak up a little sun and enjoy this beautiful weather. I'm hoping, starting next week, things start slowing down for me. Is it just me or is spring an extremely busy time of year?

[four] Starbucks has been my saving grace the past two weeks. I just don't know what I would do without my Skinny Caramel Macchiato.

[five] Tomorrow is my birthday. 29. I'm so upset. I'm definitely grateful for another year but can't believe I'm already a year away from 30!! We have some big plans for tomorrow too. It should be lots of F-U-N! We are combining birthday plans and Mother's Day since I'll be at work. Guess I should go to bed early to rest up for our busy day!

Getting to know you Sunday

It's Sunday. Time for a little Getting to Know You!

[one] Did you watch the royal wedding?
Yes, I did. I actually watched parts of it on Friday but they replayed it on Fox News so I DVR'd it and watched the whole thing.

[two] tea and crumpets or coffee and scones?
Definitely coffee and scones. We (mom and I) actually had those exact things for breakfast Friday!

[three] Who's cuter......Prince William or Prince Harry?
I'd have to go for William I think. Harry is too much of a rebel for me.

[four] Can you speak in an English accent?
For a sentence or two. I think it's so cool to have an accent that isn't Texan! HA!

[five] Do you own a fancy hat?
No. I wouldn't have been in the "cool" club at that wedding. :)

[six] Would you rather live in a castle or an English cottage?
I'd have to choose cottage. I don't think I'd be uncomfortable having servants or a huge castle. I'm sure I'd have no problem if I was born into royalty though.

[seven] How old were you when Prince Charles and Princess Diana got married? Were you even born?
I'm pretty sure they got married in '81? So no, I was born the following year.

[eight] Have you found your prince?
Yes, I have. And I think he's cuter than Prince William. :)
