GET TO KNOW ME TAG: 30 QUESTIONS
A blogger friend of mine tagged me in a ‘getting to know you’ question challenge (I know I know, I have already done my fair share of these, what more could I have left to answer) and insisted I get back to posting sooner rather than later. In an effort to get back into the swing of things I will accommodate her request and bore you with 30 facts about myself. Enjoy.

Something I’m talented at
- I like to think I am good at making others feel comfortable and laugh, but mostly I am good at starting a blog, sticking with it for a solid two years and then dropping it like a bag of bricks for almost 3 years. 3 years, Holy Crap!! In that time I’ve adopted another dog. The Cubs have one a World Series. (yep, you read that right) We’ve elected a new President (sigh) and I’ve entered a whole new age bracket on most customer satisfaction surveys. Why hello group ’30-35′ not only are you my age group, but also my minute mile group.3 fears
Snakes, Spiders, losing an iCloud backup
3 things I love
Family, baseball, my 2 dogs
My best friend
My husband Matthew, you see, he brings me milk at night..and I love milk. Maybe Milk is my best friend? Nope, its Matthew, definitely Matthew. I think.
Last song I listened to
Beautiful World- Colin Hay
Humor, Cubs, Beaches (the movie and the sand kind)
Driving slow in the left lane, chewing loud, well fed cats begging for food at 4 am. The kitchen doesn’t open until 6 am my fat fury friends.
What color underwear I’m wearing right now
(this quiz is about to take a turn for the weird for a second and I apologize for that) I am not wearing any…and before you unsubscribe, vomit and throw your computer out the window, I am in a swim suit typing this pool side. So, lets re-focus/re-group and keep our eye on the prize, shall we?
The reason I started blogging
First off, I don’t know if I would call my ‘brand’ of writing “blogging” as it is more of an unorganized virtual diary of chaotic yet funny thoughts, but regardless of what I call it, it all began because the notes app on my phone always seemed to be full of my internal monologue. Little quips or thoughts that would come to me randomly when I was either alone or with people who wouldn’t appreciate my humor. The note section was getting long, so I decided to gather those thoughts in one area where people could come and go as they please.
Something I really want
Right now, a cold glass of unsweet Ice tea (that’s right..unsweet..keep your opinions to yourself. This is a safe zone)..but ask me again in a few hours and I guarantee this answer will be “someone to rub aloe vera all over my body”
My current relationship status
Married for 8 years
Meaning behind my URL
Actually, this is a funny story….. you see, it is my name.
My favorite movie
You’ve Got Mail. All day every day.
My favorite song
Currently: Seagulls (Stop it now)—A bad lip reading of Star Wars. This is the internet I signed up for.
My favorite band
Paul McCartney & Wings
3 Things that upset me
When people argue about politics, Trash talking about sports, when we are out of milk.
3 Things that make me happy
A great Thunderstorm, a great close ballgame that ends my way, fresh gallon of milk in the fridge.
Favorite TV show
Toss-up between Greys Anatomy, Scrubs & Roseanne
My favorite holiday
Baseball Opening Day
My closest High School Friend
Emily. Oh, the stories and the inside jokes!
While I want to visit every MLB stadium and plan to do so, (only 23 left to go) I enjoy the game more watching it from home or listening to it on the radio while sitting in my hammock.
3 Things that annoy me easily
Chewing loudly/gulping, Trash talking to provoke rage out of someone, repetitive tapping
I have two dogs, Wrigley and Lucy and two cats, Rowdy and Mosby
One thing I’ve lied about
I lie to myself every night when I say “tomorrow, I am going to get up early, get the laundry and the dishes done eat a balanced breakfast and a sensible lunch all before I play with my toys in my craft room” one of these days it won’t be a lie. Until then, I will enjoy Lucky Charms at noon.
Something that’s currently worrying me
I just performed a solo of Hotel California from the hammock in the backyard…I thought I was alone, but it now appears that the neighbor children are laughing. Luckily the fence separates us, because I don’t have time for pictures and autographs.
My future goals
Realistically: Learn to play the piano, two new blog posts a week, finish all craft projects before taking on a new one, keeping car clean, bake a coconut cream pie
Un-Realistically: Learn to go to bed before 11pm and wake before 8 am, stop talking to the dogs in baby talk voice, stop biting my nails & wear matching socks
My favorite store
Amazon. The internet is a strange weird place, and Amazon delivers pieces of that strange weird place to my door in two days for free. #prime
My favorite food
It’s a tie between Mashed Potatoes and seafood boils with crab legs, shrimp
