I originally saw this from Emily @ a little bit of emily and thought it looked like a lot of fun! I always love reading these when others do it & I hope it gives a little more insight into who I am 🙂
1. Are you named after anyone?
Not as far as my first name goes. My middle name, Jean, is also my mom’s middle name, my maternal grandmother’s middle name, and my maternal great-grandmother’s first name. It’s such a special connection that I hope to pass on to a daughter of my own one day.
2. When was the last time you cried?
Sometime last week I think – I won’t go into the details of why, but prayers would be appreciated 🙂
3. Do you have kids?
We do not have any kids yet. Someday!
4. Will you ever bungee-jump?
Please excuse the language but HELL NO! I am absolutely terrified of heights and can barely look out the window of a tall building, so I’d say unless someone is paying me lots of money, you can count me out of your next bungee-jumping trip.
5. What’s your favorite cereal?
Oh my gosh, of all time? This is so hard. I love cereal but never eat it anymore because I try to be a little healthier in the mornings. I’d have to go with a 4 way tie between Cocoa Puffs, Frosted Flakes, Frosted Mini Wheats, and Captain Crunch. Yum!
6. What’s the first thing you notice about people?
Hmm, good question! Probably their hair. Not to be superficial, but it’s usually just what my eyes are drawn too and it tells me a lot about a person.
7. What is your eye color?
Blue – and I love that 🙂
8. Scary movie or happy endings?
Happy endings for sure! I get really into movies and scary movies are not really my thing. I’m usually not able to sleep well after watching scary movies.
9. Favorite scents?
Like I mentioned yesterday, I love the Bath & Body Works Leaves Candle I also love the Mahogany Teakwood Candle at Bath & Body – good all times of the year! Another favorite is the Sparkling Icicles Candle at Bath & Body. Besides candles, I love the smell of my husband’s body wash (is that cheesy?), fresh cut grass, and rain.
10. Summer or winter?
Summer for sure!
11. What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home?
I lived in Spain for 6 weeks during college as part of a study abroad program. It was such a wonderful experience even though I was super homesick. But I’d love to take my husband back there to visit.
12. Do you have any special talents?
Hmm, I’m not sure I do! I wish!
13. Where were you born?
Minnesota girl, born & raised!
14. What are your hobbies?
Cooking, exercising, trying different restaurants and bars (is that a hobby?), and just spending as much time as possible with my hubby & dogs.
15. Do you have any pets?
Yes, we have two chocolate labs. Louie is about a year and half old and Lola is 3 months old. They are quite a handful, but I couldn’t imagine this crazy life without them!
16. Favorite movie?
My favorite movie of all time is D2: The Mighty Ducks – is my Minnesota showing with that answer? However, I also love love love Stepbrothers. You have to watch it on DVD though, not on tv. It’s so not as good when it’s on tv and everything is bleeped out.
