It’s been a while since I’ve done a get to know you post so when I saw this 20 question game on Meet the Sullivans I thought it would be a fun!
1. Favorite food:
Hmmm…this is a tough one! Growing up it was probably Italian…but after having kids my tastes changed…I’m totally a cheeseburger, fries, and milkshake girl now! Thank goodness we don’t have In N’ Out in Michigan because I would be in major trouble. We do have Five Guys…and it’s almost comical how many times I tell my husband that’s what I want for dinner. Luckily he’s looking out for my better interests and usually tells me no! The list of food I don’t like is way longer than the list of things I do like!
2. Flip flops or high heels:
Flip flops all the way. I’m kind of a klutz, so heels are not my friend. Although I can rock a cute wedge.
3. Favorite places to shop for yourself:
Pretty much all of my clothes come from Nordstrom, Gap, Old Navy, and of course everybody’s favorite: Target.
4. Standard Coffee order:
I don’t drink coffee! I think it’s kind of gross. I know what you’re thinking…a mom blogger who doesn’t like coffee??? Shocker. If you make me go to Starbucks I will buy some kind of yummy iced tea. Or hot chocolate.
5. Road trip must have snack:
Gummy bears, string cheese, pretzels, and a huge water bottle. I drink water like it’s my JOB, so water is a must-have!
6. DIY or hire it out?
Kind of 50/50 on this one. My mom is the best DIYer ever and is always up for a project…so we do a lot of stuff with her. But major things we hire out for sure.
7. Top 5 TV shows:
Right now I’m basically only watching Big Brother, Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, Fixer Upper, Bachelor in Paradise/The Bachelor (only because of Pinterest Told Me To’s recaps…I look forward to reading them more than I do actually watching the show!). And I’m embarrassed to admit this, but my mom got me hooked on Don’t Be Tardy. Once it’s fall my favorites are: Nashville, How to Get Away with Murder, The Middle, Pretty Little Liars, and I just can’t quit Grey’s Anatomy.
8. Favorite Book:
I’m stealing Colleen’s answer….The Help.
9. Favorite Form of Exercising:
What exercising? I need to get back in to a groove…but my favorite thing is walking. I could walk all day.
10. How tall are you?
11. Do you try something new at restaurants or stick to your favorites?
I’m a creature of habit and stick to my favorites.
12. One make up item you can’t live without:
13. What’s on your nightstand?
A framed picture from our wedding, alarm clock, chap stick, journal, water bottle, and baby monitor.
14. What’s one thing motherhood has taught you?
Only one thing? That’s tough. I guess if I could just pick one thing it would be that time is precious. Babies grow so fast….you blink and they are a toddler demanding popcorn for breakfast. I say this all the time but it’s true that the days are long but the years are short.
15. Music that reminds you of high school:
Anything Backstreet Boys or N’Sync. Or Celine Dion! And the theme song to Dawson’s Creek.
16. If you could live anywhere in the world besides your current city where would you live?
I think I would love living in Vail Colorado….or Seattle Washington. Obviously, I’m not a beach girl, ha!
17. Tell us something about you we might not know:
I’m terrified of E.T. My husband knows this and likes to use it to torture me. I will quickly hide my face if I see him on TV. Another thing that scares me is the old school version of Planet of the Apes. I’ll probably have a nightmare tonight just thinking about it!
18. Websites you read/browse (besides blogs):
Besides blogs? I basically only have time for blogs these days! Oh, and Facebook. I don’t even bother with Pinterest anymore because it’s too overwhelming.
19. Morning person or Night owl?
Morning person for sure! My husband and I are opposites on this. I am way more productive in the morning…and I’ve never been one to stay up late.
20. Favorite Breakfast meal:
I used to hate breakfast food…and now it’s my favorite! In fact, maybe I should change my answer to question #1. A local join makes this amazing egg scramble with potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, onion, mushroom, and bacon. It’s the best.
