[7 questions] & FITBF

March 31, 2012

Time for some 7 questions, as usually I am late for every party. But here is my funny photo:
This one was taken back in April 2008 when we had only been dating a month. It was actually taken in the car after eating at Chili's where I met his sister for the first time.  

1. What is your favorite color TO WEAR?
Blue. It just looks good with my skin. I am also a huge fan of black. 

2. You are given the choice between visiting every country and landing on the moon. Which would you choose?
Every country, hands down. I think I've blogged it before but I have a huge fear of outter space. Think about space along with what is actually inside my body gives me the heebie geebies. 

3. What's your favorite animal and why?
Dachshund. I'd love to say something else, but after 5 years of living with these nutty things that keep me laughing they win by far. Thursday Maddie left her squeaky hedge hog in my laundry and took a balled up sock to play with. I caught her tossing the sock in the air and running for it. I promise you, she doesn't play fetch with us. 

4. You are forced to do one of the following, which would you choose? Sky dive, scuba dive, or world's largest rope swing.
Rope swing. I probably need therapy for my vast amount of fears, but I am terrified of drowning-no one can touch me in water, and I hate flying. So jumping out of a plane would be out of the question. 

5. You are given the chance to go back in time. Which era would you visit?
Middle Ages in England. Something about it seems so romantic, I am speaking more from the literature and not historical perspective of course. Who on Earth wants body lice and black death? Not this girl. 

6. If you had the power to remove one thing (ie: flies, mosquitos, junk food) from the earth for good- what would it be?

Oh this is hard, living in Louisiana I immediately want to say mosquitos. But that is only a problem during the summer here. Junk food wins this. I can wear OFF for mosquitos, I can't seem to find a OFF for junk food. And let's face it, no matter how healthy I eat and believe people should eat I have a serious love of all things chocolate candy and chips.  I don't indulge often, but I love them. For instance my babies (students-I typed it out and then realized only my students would know who I was talking about) brought me a ton of Easter candy, because they know how much I love it. I ate the Reese's bunny in the dark quiet of my home while secretly hoping I won the Mega Millions last night. All I got was extra bunny calories. Please take the junk food. 

7. What is one thing you've learned from Pinterest that made you think "GENIUS"!
Essentially all of the green cleaning recipes. I am not doing them for the green factor, but more for my health. I feel like I have a full blown cold every time I clean with store bought chemical products. Since I've been cleaning with natural thing and homemade laundry detergent I have come to enjoy little to no allergy problems at home. [that sounded like a comercial] 


1.  My greatest strength is   my list making skills. With a properly made list I can get tons of stuff done and stay organized   .

2.   My greatest weakness is   my ability to lose said lists. They work great until I have one of those days where I can't even find my face    .

3.  People always compliment me on     cooking or clothing.     .

4. If you found me procrastinating you'd probably find me    playing on my iPad and looking at Pinterest, or watching my trashy reality housewife shows.  .

5. The most cozy place in all the world is  my antique bed in the guest bedroom. It was my bed for years until I married a giant who needed a king size just for his length. He hangs off of everything else. The antique bed has a comfy mattres anyway, but I added a down topper to it. People who sleep on that bed usually don't want to leave it .

6. Something new that I tried recently was    Overnight Oatmeal from Pinterest, and I am in love. Actually I love anything that makes getting breakfast before work easier. I have been taking this one with me and slicing up a banana in it at work. So far I've had 2 comments on it 1) Oh gross what is that [students] and 2) Is that ice cream [my favorite partner teacher Lauren-because let's face it she knows me well and if I were eating ice cream at 7 am she wouldn't be surprised] .

7.  This weekend I would like to   hang out with my husband,I mean dogs. Husband is on a camping trip, which is totally not fair because I like to camp. I am having coffee with the ladies today though and then shopping. I also need to clean, I think that pile of clothes on the guest bed is starting to procreate - there seems to be more than there where the other day and I didn't do laundry.   .
