Heather, over at a Step Inside, has this great little meme to do, and since I seem to be at a loss for words, I thought I would let you know a little bit about myself!
1. What is your favorite thing to snack on while your blogging?
I actually don't eat while on the computer. It's not a rule or anything, but with me, the unofficial Crumb Queen (I know, quite a sad, pathetic title to actually have,) it is just to avoid eating while typing. If I had to have a plate of something within walking distance of my computer (haha,) it would have to be a plate full of chocolate chip cookies. Because they are my heaven.
2. What is one thing you wouldn't want to live without?
I know this won't come as a surprise, but it would have to be books. All books. I love reading and getting enjoyment from books. I love acquiring knowledge. And I love entertaining people, mainly my husband, with recounting the stories I have just read. Although, I don't think he has been too pleased with this week's reading choice...Little House on the Prairie!
3. Beach, Mountains, or Farm? Where would you live if you had a choice?
I, um, haven't ever seen a farm. Is that strange? I mean, I have seen farms, but never stayed on one, so I'm not sure if I would actually like it. I am a beach girl, through and through. I love everything about them. I even love the unpredictability of storms that may come. The only thing I'm not crazy about.....those insane sea snakes that I watched a documentary on at an imax when I was 7. *shudder*
4. What's your least favorite chore/household duty?
Vacuuming. I was so petite as a child that my older sister always got stuck with it, and I just dreaded the day when I would have to push that heavy thing. Sure enough, I find it just so bothersome! My in-laws have an awesome Oreck that is incredibly light and easy to handle, so I don't mind using that one as much!
5. Who do people say you remind them of?
Usually people think they have met me before, I think I have a pretty general face, so I do look like a lot of people. I have been told that I look like Drew Barrymore- I think it's my big ol eyes and my cheek structure.
6. Prefer parties and socializing or staying home with the fam?
I love going out and hanging out with my friends, but get really anxious when around people I don't know well. Even going to our church college group left me feeling nauseous and sick. So, I probably should just stay home, haha!
7. What's your all time favorite movie?
I don't really now! I watch a lot of movies and have about 10 or so that I could watch over and over. I am a big fan of "Return to Me." It's a very unique romantic comedy, and I bawl like a baby every time. Plus, you have to love the cute old Irish men in the film! And the monkey.
8. Do you sleep in your make-up or remove it like a good little girl every night?
I don't wear make-up very often. Probably just on Sundays, honestly. Or when, you know, company comes over. I have fairly smooth complexion and nice coloring so I don't look too scary without make-up. I wash it off though, when I do wear it!
9. Do you have a hidden talent or a deep desire to learn something that you've never had a chance to learn? What is it?
I really want to learn how to play the violin. Very badly. I can read music, played the piano for 12 years, and even took interest in the guitar (like, my parents bought me one for Christmas and I fiddled around with it, but without lessons, I just couldn't get anywhere.)
10. What's one strange thing you're really good at?
Tetris. I love it so much. I guess really any logic puzzle I can do really well at. Thank you Gifted Program for teaching me how to master things like that!
11. What first attracted you to your spouse?
This will probably sound weird, but, his humility. When he first came back into my life (10th grade,) he was very overweight. He put himself on the South Beach diet (as a 11th grader!) and by the end of the school year, he had lost close to 65 pounds! All of the girls were swooning over him and his cute dimples, and I just found it so attractive that he didn't know how handsome he was!
12. What is something you love to smell?
Clean laundry. My husband's cologne. My perfume.
13. Tell something about you that you know irritates people.
I'm really good at reading people. It's probably my biggest fault though. Call it being perceptive, or whatever you want, but it means that I am much quicker to pass judgement than I should. It does save me from alot of heartache however, because I know who to stay away from, friend wise.
14. When you have extra money, what's the first thing you think to do with it?
Coooooooooookies! I'd probably go buy a thing of cookies!
15. Are you a silent laugher or a loud laugher? What makes you laugh the hardest?
I'm a silent laugher. Mostly. I can get a few good chuckles out, and when I get really going, it becomes very high pitches- but that is few and far between. My sister makes me laugh the most I think. That, or, you know, me! I love to do things that make me laugh!
16. Where is your favorite place to shop?
Food - Publix. So delicious! Sweet tea, subs, chocolate chip cookies! (their bakery cakes are pretty swell as well!)
Clothes - Jcrew, Banana Republic, Ann Taylor Loft
17. What's one things you'd do more often if you had more time?
Pray, probably. I used to be a whisper pray-er, praying around the clock, but with the busyness of life, I have gotten out of the habit!
18. Are you a big spender or frugal?
I like to be able to spend when it meets my fancy, but since I don't feel the urge to spend as much as mos people, I am probably a good mix of the two.
19. Who is your favorite character of all time? (from a movie or a book, can't be real)
From a book, probably Catherine Morland from Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey. She has my super active imagination, and it tends to get her in trouble, just like me!
From a movie, I'd have to agree with Heather from Step Inside. Gracie Hart from Miss Congienality. She just cracks me up. I love how real she is, despite what everyone expects. She's tough, beautiful, and the nicest girl at the pageant!
20. Would you want to be famous?
I don't think I would chase after fame, but, if it was placed before me, I don't think I would turn it down. What an awesome opportunity to show the world what real Christians should look like, and to be a light for all of the world!
