Pretending to be Sarah Jessica Parker

I’ve always loved memes – from the time they were passed around in middle school notebooks to the recent reincarnation in the blogosphere.  I also adore Sarah Jessica Parker.  A few month ago I watched a video interview she did with Vogue, “73 questions with SJP.”  It was fun and it gave me an idea for a blog.  I transcribed all the questioned and saved them for another day.  That day has come!  I’ve been working on an essay all week for a class I’m taking and my brain is fried.  I failed to hook up with Mama Kat this week and aside from a guest post at the Family Legacy Center, it’s been quiet here at The Latchkey Mom.  So if you’ll indulge me, I will pretend I am Miss Sarah Jessica Parker and answer Vogue’s questions:

  1. What fun! I kind of want to answer all of these…but I’m going to go watch a movie right now instead! 😀 I love posts like this, though, seriously. Great to get to know other bloggers this way and great for when you can’t think of a thing to write!

  2. Ok – I am going to randomly pick three numbers and answer those questions: 5, 28, 67.
    5. My city (town, really) – diverse, cultural, friendly
    28. Hardest part about being a mom – I’m with you, Allie. Letting them go.
    67. Can’t do, so 68. Pilates.

    Fun! I love these kinds of posts.

  3. Followed you on Instagram and Twitter!
    I live in New England and if I ever win the lottery or invent the wheel, I want a home in Sonoma for summer and winter. Are we twins?
    And I met SJP at a mall in Pleasanton when I lived in San Francisco. She was awesome!
    I think I’m at a 9 with life excitement too.

    1. Thank you for the follows! You lived in San Francisco too? I think we are twins – that is my favorite city (Boston is a close second)! I love, love, love it there. If I’d first visited in my twenties, I still be there.
