Thank you for joining me in welcoming…Kelly Polark!!
I found Kelly through a Twitter recommendation, and her hilarious blog lured me in. She’s a huge music fan and goes to concerts often--which I like since I can enjoy them vicariously. Lucky for us, she shares pictures too. Just this week, Kelly shared a snapshot of her with Chris Daughtry. Pretty cool!
Let’s get to it!
1. Beverage of choice?
Fountain Coca Cola from McDonald's. I'm addicted. Though I show restraint and have about 3-4 a week. I also love chocolate milk.
2. Any pets?
We have two dogs. One 15 year old blind miniature pinscher named Goofy and a 3 year old rescue dachshund/spaniel mix named Daisy. Daisy adores Goofy. And we adore them both.
3. Dream vacation?
I'm a homebody, so my favorite place to be is home. I enjoy going to the Wisconsin family cabins on both sides of the family, and my favorite tropical place is Atlantis at the Bahamas!
4. What are you listening to right now?
The bands I'm listening to the most right now are Papa Roach, New Medicine, and Bush. I also can’t stop listening to Neon Trees’ new single, “Everybody Talks.” I love SO many rock bands though, and many are on shuffle on my iPod.
5. What's for dinner?
Our evenings are hectic. I have three children all in activities so I am usually picking up two around 5pm then driving straight to a baseball game or track meet. So sandwiches or cheese roll ups in the car with fruit is our usual weekday dinner! Boring, but true.
Kelly, you’re not alone in your McDonald’s Coke addiction. There’s something in their formula that’s magical. I can’t get enough! Your puppies sound so cute, and I LOVE their names. Vacation--yum. Wisconsin is so pretty, and Atlantis speaks to my beach-loving soul. :)
I haven’t heard Neon Trees, so I am going to look them up. It’s fun finding new-to-me artists! Your evenings have me nodding. We just wrapped up track season, and baseball is going strong. We’ll be having many similar dinners until August. Thanks so much for being my guest today!

What song are you really tired of hearing on the radio? (For me, it's "Stronger" by Kelly Clarkson.)
Have a fantastic Wednesday!!
