There is a popular blogging tag that has been going around lately called the “Get to Know Me” tag. I was tagged at the perfect time since I have several new subscribers and readers of the blog. (Thank you, thank you to all of you) So without further ado…
1. Are you named after someone?
Yes. Some girl off of Little House on the Prairie. Or at least that’s where the inspiration came from.
2. When was the last time you cried?
Honestly, I don’t remember. It’s been a while.
3. Do you have kids?
Yes, 4 boys and aren’t they just precious?!
4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?
Hmmmm….this is a great question. Honestly, my answer is “I don’t know but I hope.” The irony of this question is that I wake up every day and really try to be a person someone would want to be friends with. I’ve worked on myself A LOT this year (more than any other year) and so I hope that I would want to be friends with me but I guess it would also depend on who I was as the “other person.” Confusing, right? 😉
5. Do you have a guilty pleasure?
Shonda Rhimes shows…I mean she can do no wrong, chocolate and a good Nora Roberts or Sandra Brown novel. Give me all three in one night and I’m in heaven.
6. Do you like handwriting?
Yes!!! This is probably where I’m old fashioned but I love to write things and receive handwritten things. While I love technology, the world needs more tangible handwritten things happening.
7. What is your favorite cereal?
I don’t really eat cereal and haven’t for years but when I was pregnant it was Honey Nut Cheerios or Reeses Puffs. As a kid I’d die for French Toast Crunch, which I saw they just recently brought back. #winning
8. What is the first thing you notice about people?
Energy, hair, clothes…in that order. It might be because I’m a big believer in energy but if you’ve got some crazy energy swirling I’ll notice, just like I’ll notice if you’ve got lots of positive flow happening. I think this is why some people probably haven’t liked me over the years cause I can spot a fake a mile away. And I don’t mean that in a haughty sort of way. I can just tell when someone isn’t being at all authentic. I think this is why everyone used to come to me for relationship advice. I could always tell when a relationship isn’t going to work or is someone isn’t who they say they are. I’ve never been wrong and that’s good and bad, depending on if the person listened or not.
9. What color are your eyes?
Dark Brown. Sometimes they almost look black.
10. Scary movies or happy endings?
Hmmmm….I like a scary movie but by scary I mean a movie that portrays like a true crime or something that could actually happen. Freddie or Jason, not really scary. However, I also like happy endings…I mean The Proposal is hands down my favorite movie of all time. (And yes that may be because it has my girl crush, Sandra Bullock and my man crush, Ryan Reynolds in it) However, action movies are my favorite so not sure if that qualifies as scary or happy. haha
11. Favorite TV show?
Oh so many. Greys Anatomy, Scandal, How to Get Away With Murder and I’m also looking forward to the new NBC Fall Show This Is Us. Hoping it’s as good as it looks.
12. Summer or winter?
Fall. Why is Fall not an option? In all honesty, I like all seasons but summer is getting harder and harder to take. It is HOT here all the time and it’s almost miserable. I don’t like cold wind but I find I can bundle up and at least be warm. Summer is just a lost cause these days.
13. Hugs or kisses?
Depends on the person. My hubs – hugs and kisses will do. Everyone else – hugs!
14. What’s the furthest you’ve been from home?
Well I traveled to Jamaica when I was little so I guess that’s the farthest I’ve ever been away but that was just vacation and not permanent.
15. Do you have special talents?
I play the piano, or at least I know how to play. I don’t have one so don’t currently play. I can also play the flute and at one point taught myself a little bit on the violin. I can also balance a lot of books on my head, cause that’s super important in real life. Oh and I can raise a lot of boys – which I consider the most amazing talent. That crap ain’t easy!
16. Where were you born.
17. What are your hobbies?
Reading, writing, photography, cooking (if I don’t have to clean), baking, party planning and shopping.
18. Do you have any pets?
Yes, 3 cats that need new homes. I don’t really have time for pets anymore. Poor things are a tad neglected.
19. Favorite movie?
The Proposal, like I said earlier, anything with Denzel Washington, all the superhero movies, Titanic (cause I’m weirdly obsessed with it) and probably 100 more I can’t think of at this time.
20. What color is your car?
21. What did you want to be when you grow up?
I wanted to be either an FBI agent or a wedding planner. Obviously, I never got the badge and I eloped so never even had a wedding. However, I often feel like I’m running special operatives raising 4 boys and with all the birthday parties I have to throw I’m using my planning skills sooooo it worked out. 😉
Hope you enjoyed this fun little veer off from the usual content on this blog. Wait, I have usual content? hahahah. Anyways, hope you all have amazing days and feel free to leave some fun facts about yourself in the comments below. I love getting to know my readers!!!
