25 Things About Me.

I had to shift some posts around today, so this is a great time to post this!

If there were ever a book written about me, this is the list you would find at the front. Come join in the fun and share yours as well!

1. Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?
They have to be closed. I am a huge chicken and I can scare myself pretty easily, so they must be closed or I cannot fall asleep.

2. Do you take the shampoos and conditioner bottles from hotels?
Nope. My hair is a pain in the you know what, so I have to stick to my normal shampoo and conditioner or it revolts.

3. Do you sleep with your sheets tucked in or out?
Well, I prefer for them to be tucked in at the bottom, but my husband hates feeling like his "feet are being strangled" so they are now untucked. And since I cannot fall asleep if my feet or hot, it works for me now. I am sure in the winter it won't.

4. Would you rather be attacked by a bear or a swarm of bees?
Well, I have actually never been stung by a bee and I am a little wary of having that happen...but, compared to a bear, I would probably rather have the bees!

5. Do you have freckles?
Oh yes. And since I work outside they become a little more prominent during the summer.

6. What is your biggest pet peeve?
People who are blatantly disrespectful in public. I mean, please be courteous to the people around you!

7. Have you ever peed in the woods?
No, but there was a time when I really, really needed to go but found a bathroom just in time!

8. Do you ever dance if there’s no music playing?
Yes. Especially when I am trying to irritate the husband.

9. Do you chew your pens and pencils?
Normally I don't. Unless I know it is MY pen and I am working on a project that requires thinking.

10. Is it okay for guys to wear pink?
I know Matt would never, ever wear pink, but I personally don't care.

11. What do you dip a chicken nugget in?
If I am being bad ranch, but I also love some BBQ sauce as well.

12. What is your favorite food?
I LOVE macaroni and cheese. It is my ultimate comfort food for sure!

13. What movies could you watch over and over and still love?
Forest Gump, Beauty and the Beast, The Piano, Y Tu Mama Tambien, Tombstone, My Best Friend's Wedding...and lots more! But those are my favorites and most loved!

14. Were you ever a boy/girl scout?
I was a girl scout (brownie)!

15. Would you ever strip or pose nude in a magazine? When I was at college and lived in a house full of girls I couldn't even change in the same room as them, so I highly doubt I'll be exposing myself any time soon.

16. Can you change the oil on a car?
I know how to go and get it change, if that counts. I suppose that should be something that I should learn eventually.

17. Ever gotten a speeding ticket?
Once. I was 16 and running late for school. My younger sister missed her bus so I drove her to school. As I pulled out of her school's parking lot to get to school, I accelerated really hard the cop clocked me going over in a school zone. Luckily the magistrate was really nice and since it was my first ticket I went to traffic school and didn't get any points. I haven't been pulled over since and I am a super cautious driver.

18. Ever ran out of gas?
Yep! It was about two weeks ago. We had been really busy and figured I had enough gas to get to work and to the gas station. Luckily I ran out right in front of the station and one of the workers helped me push the car in. I thought it was hilarious to be honest.

19. Are you lazy?
Oh I can be. I enjoy laying around and vegging out as much as anyone else, but I still like to be busy and have things to do.

20. When you were a kid, what did you dress up as for Halloween?
All kinds of things. My mom made me a lot of costumes. I can remember being a princess, a girl from the 50's, and a black cat!

21. How many languages can you speak?
I can speak a little bit of Spanish, which is the lingering result of 3 years of high school Spanish and 4 semesters of college Spanish.

22. Who is better…Leno or Letterman?
I don't watch either.

23. Do you sing in the car?
Yes. And since I am tone-deaf, my husband hates it.

24. Ever eat a pierogi?
Yes! I love pierogis and I would love to learn how to make them from scratch!

25. First concert?
My first was Savage Garden in the 8th grade. I also have seen Tim McGraw and Faith Hill a couple of times, the Dixie Chicks, Guster, The Ataris, Vendetta Red, Muse (twice! Once in 2002 and back in February of this year), Evanescense, Seether, Breaking Benjamin, Three Days Grace, The Backstreet Boys, and Josh Groban (I don't think I am missing anyone....)

That was fun! I hope some of you answer as well! I would love to see your answers!


  1. Amen on being a chicken and people be courteous!

    I love your musical taste :)

  2. Wow, your answers to #1 and #3 would 100% be mine too, haha.
