Get To Know Me Tag!
Thank you so much to Angelica at The Book Cover Girls for tagging me! I love doing tags because it’s so fun to learn about everyone who does them. Be prepared for a lot of information about me below.
Nicknames: B (I’m not really one for nicknames so it’s really just my dad who gets away with calling me B 🙂
Birthday: July 4… and I LOVE IT. Because its a party every year!
Star Sign: Cancer
Occupation: Mother, reader, writer.
Hair color: I don’t know. I have been coloring my hair since I was 16 and it’s never an in between color. Either super dark or super blonde. But I think it’s actually somewhere in the middle. Right now it’s blonde again.
Hair length: An inch or 2 below my shoulders. And I’m really proud of that. I haven’t cut it for 1.5 years and before that it was a very very short pixie.
Eye color: Blue. Not clear blue or crystal blue or anything. But blue and I love it. my hubby has blue and all three of my kids have varying shades of blue.
Best feature: Smile. At least that’s what I’ve been told. *smiles really big for you all to see 🙂 *
Braces: Twice :/ And I’m pretty sure I need them again. Or retainers again. Or something. I’m kind of a perfectionist when it comes to a lot of things and my slightly crooked teeth drive me crazy!
Piercings: Just one for each ear. and I rarely wear earrings. I just forget. It’s not something that is on my “getting ready” checklist and I always leave without any earrings.
Tattoos: No! Needles? No, thank you. Also, not really a fan of permanently adding something to my body like that.
Right or left: Left-Handed which means I may or may not have a shorter life span? I don’t know, its just what I’m told.
Holiday: I think my birthday. I was pretty young and we watched the parade and threw poppers on the ground and then I popped one in my hand and rubbed the black stuff all over my super cute white star shirt that my aunt made for me. I don’t remember much else about the birthday. Or how old I was. I also don’t remember if that was before or after my 4th birthday party when my sister took my birthday presents and ruined them and I cried…a lot. (love you lyss)
Best Friend: Honestly? My mom. I have girlfriends that I am super close with. I feel like for the first time in my life I actually have girlfriends that I’ve been friends with for years. But the longest and closest friend I have is my Mother. I live next door to her and when she goes out of town for even the weekend I call her every day. When I first moved away from home I called her every day as well.
Award: In 5th grade I wrote an essay about why my tiny charter school needed a library and entered a national contest. I won $5000 for my school to make a library. That was pretty cool. (hah, the contest was called the “cool schools essay contest”
Sport: Tennis. I grew up playing tennis. And I spent a few years doing gymnastics as well.
Concert: The Eagles? I think that might have been my first concert. I went to an Eagles revival concert with my dad. I was a senior in high school. I’ve been to a few since because my hubby loves concerts but I usually send him with a friend because I’m not really a fan.
TV shows: Friends, The Office, Bachelor anything. Actually I rarely watch TV. I’d rather read or something.
Color: Blue! Always has been. But I’m starting to love pink as well. And if you look at my closet, it’s probably 90% black.
Song: Hmm a favorite song… Come Away With Me by Norah Jones has been a favorite for years. And To Love you More by Celine Dion. My current obsession is Sign of the Times by Harry Styles
Restaurant: Zupas. It’s salads, sandwiches, and soups and I get the same thing every time I go with is usually a few times a month since it’s a whole family favorite.
Shop: Does Amazon count? I’m kind of addicted to free 2-day shipping.
Books: The Count of Monte Cristo and These is My Words are my most favorite books ever.
Shoes: My favorite pair of shoes are Sam Edelman flats that are beaded black with a shiny silver metal toe. But I’ve worn them so much they are wearing out and I’m so sad.
Feeling: Excited for my vacation TOMORROW!
Single or Taken: Taken.
Eating: Nothing, because obviously I’m typing, but I want to go get a bowl of Golden Grahams.
Thinking About: Too many things to pick one.
Watching: Me? Nothing. But my hubby is sitting next to me and he’s watching NBA playoffs. I like college basketball but I’m not a huge fan of NBA so I don’t have to watch every game of playoffs 🙂
Wearing: Black Yoga pants, a white t-shirt, and a grey mens XL sweatshirt (because baggy sweatshirts are my favorite thing)
Want Children: I have some. I’m happy with what I have 🙂
Want to be married: Yes I’d like to stay married 😉
Careers in mind: I want to be a full-time author. I also want to edit books. and MOSTLY I want to teach English at the High School Level. First I have to go back to college and finish my degree.
Where you want to live: Part of me has always wanted to live in London. Another part of me has always wanted to live in a remote area on a farm with my own animals and stuff that I live off and my closest neighbor is too far to see. But I’m happy where I live right now.
Do you believe in:
Miracles: Of course, I witness them every day
Love at first sight: I used to say yes. But now, I’m going to say no. I think you can find people attractive at first sight, but I’d like to think that love is something you work for and grow.
Ghosts: The thought scares me. So I don’t think about them.
Aliens: Sure, but not in the green, multi-eyed, two- fingered things we think of when we say Aliens.
Soul Mates: I think so, but like Love at First Sight, I don’t think it’s an instantaneous thing. I think that you and grow to become soul mates if you want to put the work in and love each other.
Heaven: Of course!
Kissing on the first date: No! And I’m SOOOOO glad I don’t have to go one first dates anymore. The dating scene is rough.
Yourself: Eh. Some days… totally. Others… totally no.
