Yours Truly

One. I was born and raised in Southern California. I’ve pretty much lived in two cities my entire life and they are only one hour from each other.

Two. I always have {and probably always will} love to take pictures. My husband jokes with me that the only reason I do anything {travel, got married, cook} is for the photos.
He might be right.

Three. I drink an absurd amount of Diet Coke. Like an embarrassing amount. I’m trying to wean myself off, but I’m haven’t been very successful.

Four. I’ve ridden a camel on the beach of the Dead Sea in Jordan. They are so much taller than they look.

Five. I tend to dance when I get into my pajamas. It’s been ever so cleverly named, “The Pajama Dance.” There’s almost nothing that can hold a candle to the excitement and comfort I feel at the end of the day when I can put them on.

Six. I eat fast food. a.lot. Specifically Del Taco and/or taco bell. Then I moved to Encinitas where everyone is a healthy-eating hippy. I still continue to eat Del Taco three times a week.

Seven. I don’t swim in the ocean. I love the beach but mostly for the beautiful scenery and its ability to make me tan. I don’t like the feeling of seaweed wrapped around my ankles, or the fear of sharks biting my knee caps. {The water in St.Thomas was a different story. I swam in that ocean every day we were there.}

Eight. I’m a self-diagnosed Hypochondriac. At least once a day I google some symptom that I have and convince myself of the worst. I currently think I have early-onset Alzheimer’s.

I love a good scary movie. Gore? Blood? Bring it on.

Ten. One of my favorite things in the world is driving around neighborhoods looking at houses that we won’t be able to afford for a long, long time.

Eleven. I’m an 87 year old woman trapped in a 28 year olds body. For real, I would go to bed at 8:00 pm every night if my husband let me. I wonder if that means there’s something wrong with me…
I should google it.

Kasey’s questions for me
  1. If you could suggest ONE book for someone to read, what would it be? 
    The Giver. You know the one; you probably had to read it when you were in 5th grade. Do yourself a favor and RE-read it.
  2. Name one song that would get you out on the dance floor.
    Jesse’s Girl by Rick Springfield.
  3. What is your favorite dessert? (Please share a recipe)
    Pumpkin Cream cheese Pie

  4. What is the one item that you MUST have in your purse at all times?
    Dr. Pepper Chapstick. The Dr. & I have had a love affair for 15 years.  
  5. If you could meet one person from your favorite sports team, who would it be?
    I’d like to pick Norv Turner’s brain for a few minutes.
  6. If you could pick two actors/actresses to be in a movie together, who would you choose?
    I want Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling to get back together. Even if it’s only on the silver screen.
  7. If you could take cooking lessons from one well known chef, who would it be? What would you choose to learn how to cook?
    I’m gonna go with Sam the Cooking Guy
    {because he’s from San Diego and his recipes are simple}

    I'd like to learn to make a great marinade.
  8. Create your own cupcake flavor.
    Brownie whipped cream – two of my favorite things.
  9. What is your favorite item of clothing?
    My brown boots. Can those count as clothing?
  10. Are you a coffee person or a hot chocolate person? 
    Hot chocolate! We got our beloved Keurig when we got married even though neither of us drink coffee. Brandon loves tea and I love hot chocolate.
  11. What would be your favorite thing to do on a date?
    Mexican food and the movies are two of my favorite things to do.
    Make it a drive-in movie so I can lay with a blanket and I’m even happier.

My questions for you

  1. Share the last item that you pinned on Pinterest
  2. If you could snap your fingers and be qualified for any career in the world, what would you be?
  3. What would you do with a million dollars?
  4. What are the first 3 blogs you look at each day?
  5. Show us a picture of your dream house.
  6. Tell us what you do for a living.
  7. Tell us about your dream vacation.
  8. What is your #1 pet peeve?
  9. What is your favorite book?
  10. Are you a Mac of PC girl?
  11. If you could have one superpower what would it be?  

 TAG, you're it!
Lauren @ Crazy Ever After 
Just like Kasey, I don't feel like tagging 11 people! That's a bit much.
Enjoy reliving the Myspace years with surveys :-)

Holly said...

I LOVE del taco too!
I dont swim in the ocean either.

Amanda M. said...

We once went to Del Taco for their $.39 tacos, and ended up spending over $30! So yummy..... :)

Ruthie Hart said...

so much fun! and thanks for tagging me! I am not a hypochondriac but I definitely self diagnose. I suffer from a bad case of irritable armpit syndrome at night so I have to wear an XXXXLLLLLL shirt or shirtless!

jessica said...

i love gorey movies, too!!
the more blood and creepy gross stuff the better.

check out the movie, teeth. lol it's so gross, weird and gnarly. the best kind, right.

i don't think i'll be able to ever give up fast food. can't live without a cheeseburger, french toast sticks, or a burrito at least once a week :)

Kasey Lynne said...

Um let me just say that you are my new favorite person.

1. Diet Coke is the best drink ever, besides a Midori Sour. ;)

2. HATE swimming in the ocean because of my fear of getting swallowed whole by a shark.

3. We can be hypochondriac crazies together! If something starts to hurt or feel weird, I swear I convince myself that I have cancer. ALWAYS. My family gives me a hard time about it.

4. A certain group of friends in college (who were one-two years younger than me) called me Grandma because I would always go to bed early.

Dr. Pepper chapstick? SO awesome.
