I love making these up and it has been awhile....so who wants to play?!
1. Favorite sound? / Least favorite sound?
I know it is cliché, but my sons laugh is truly the best sound I have ever heard. As for least favorite….there is a list. A loooong list. I think I suffer from Misophonia (self-diagnosed of course). Most noises drive me bonkers! Not like a little annoyed, like I want to hurt or throw something at the person making the noise that annoys me. I think loud chewing and slurping usually annoy me the most.
2. Anything unusual in your purse or pocket?
Today in my purse I found a bag of cheerios, a burp clothe, hand wipes, a package of post-it notes, my flip-flops, and 3 Electric Light Orchestra Cd’s. Don’t ask. I think if I keep looking in my Mary Poppins bag I may even find my son hiding.
3. One thing you have always wanted to do but haven’t?
Travel. Like really travel. Perhaps out of the country to Ireland or England. Just wish flying wasn’t required and instead we had mastered teleportation.
4. One thing you have done but never want to do again?
Go back to High School. I hated H.S. It was not fun and I have no interest in going to any reunions.
5. Something you are afraid of? (Besides the fear of something happening to someone you care about.)
I am really afraid of heights. Like, I hate going over bridges and even going up open staircases gets me anxious. Oh and dolls. Creepy, life-like dolls. *shiver*
6. Favorite word/s?
I don’t know if they are my favorite but I always use them way too much – awesome and seriously. I also love to hear kind words like please & thank you as I feel they are not used as much anymore.
7. Least favorite word/s?
Moist. Panties. Ew…. And definitely don’t use the words together. I also HATE all these phrases or half words being used lately. i.e. amaz-balls, tot ridic…things like that. SAY THE WORDS!
8. What is the first thing you notice about people?
Their smile and their eyes. I think you can tell so much about a person based on those two features. Also, their manners.
9. Favorite color?
10. If you could only eat 5 foods the rest of your life, what would they be? (you can say an individual one like cheese or a meal like meatloaf and mashed potatoes)
Cheese, my deconstructed chicken parmesan with pasta, bread & butter, tortilla chips with guacamole and salsa, & gumbo.
11. Today I am thankful for:
Cool weather. I love cooler weather….Fall is da bomb! (Please still like me even though I just said da bomb)
12. If you could witness any event from the past, what would it be?
I would like to witness how things like the pyramids and Stonehenge were created so that I could go on the history channel and tell it how it REALLY was and tell them whether they were infact created by aliens or if we were just more resourceful back then.
13. What do you want to be when you “grow up”?
I still don’t know. I miss event planning, but not corporate events more like kid events or fun events. I have thought about getting my masters in recreational therapy….that sounds very interesting to me. But, maybe after Terry completes his schooling then I can think about going back to complete mine.
14. If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
Learn a different language or two. Also sewing on a sewing machine so I can make Henry some awesome homemade costumes.
15. Have you learned anything new recently?
This past year I have been learning patience and acceptance that not everything is going to be or needs to be perfect. I am still learning this every day.
16. What are you most looking forward to in the coming months?
Celebrating my favorite time of the year and seeing how Henry reacts to it all!! Pumpkins, thanksgiving, and Christmas, OH MY!....…I can’t wait to celebrate with him!
17. What things do you dislike about yourself that you want to improve?
I hate how obsessed and worried I get about things. I will lay in bed all night worrying about whether I turned the stove off or locked the door or put the garage door down and if I don’t triple check it and tell myself over and over I did it before I go to bed I go crazy. I basically have a routine and must follow it. I am getting better, but if Henry’s room was off by even a degree to what I thought it should be I would worry to the point of crying. I also repeat myself and have to do things multiple times and it gets annoying. I am not spontaneous and sometimes I wish I was. Sometimes. And how hard I am on myself and the way I do things or look.
18. What things do you love about yourself?
I think I am a kind person. I also think I am polite, especially out in public. Of course I think I am funny…that is a given. I think I am a pretty good cook and love sharing that with people around me. I also love my green eyes.
19. If you could have ANY animal as a pet, what would it be?
An elephant for sure.
20. One thing people may not know about you?
I was not a funny person growing up. Infact, I was told multiple times that I did not have a sense of humor. I don’t think it was until I was in college that I loosened up and started becoming funny and that stick started falling out of my ass. I am still very awkward around strangers, but over the last decade I have really come out of my shell and I think I am hilarious, even when people don’t laugh at my jokes….you know, due to the fact that they are in shock at just how funny I am.
Bonus - Current celebrity crush/es? (If you know me at all, you know I had to have this question)
There are way too many good looking people out there :/ I have included pictures for your own viewing pleasure and as much as I hated it I made sure the eye candy had their shirts on. Ugh....guess their faces will do. (P.S. can you tell I like a scruffy type guy ? Of course I do, my husband has mutton chops and has bright blue eyes!)
I think Johnny Depp is a given for everyone.
Matt Bomer (he is gay but I would be his beard)
Alex O'Loughlin (He is sexy and has an accent, delicious!)
Jared Leto (Arrogant/rocker/activist with eyeliner. What’s not to love)
Zac Efron (Shut up, we all need at least one young’n on our list)
Ewan McGregor (Have you heard him talk or seen him smile? *swoon*)
Iris…this picture is for you!! :)
Hey Kylee and Michelle, there are no wrestlers on this list! Are you proud of me?! :)
