Hi friends! I feel like this week has been all over the place with blogging, so why not round it out with a good ‘ol survey?
I bookmarked this lovely little survey after seeing Julie, Gina and a few others fill it out this summer, and I thought it would be fun to answer and share on a rainy day. Well, it’s not raining, but it does feel like fall today. And since I’m not quite ready for the drastic temperature drop, I’m pulling out the “rainy day” card. I don’t think many of you will argue my theory!
I always like to get to know more about the bloggers behind the blogs I read, so hopefully you enjoy reading these types of surveys, too. If not, I’ll see you back here tomorrow with Friday Favorites. Happy Thursday!
A to Z Survey
A – Age: 30
B – Biggest Fear: snakes, alligators, dark water, heights, snakes in dark water… etc. (I’m a real treat to go canoeing with!)
C – Current Time: 11:21 a.m.
D – Drink You Had Last: coffee! Fun fact, sometimes it takes me several hours to drink one (huge) morning cup of coffee.
If I’m out and about, I’ll drink it quickly, but if I brew it myself to enjoy at home while working on the computer, it’s very likely that I will be sipping on it and carrying it around the house until lunch. Cold and all. I know, I’m a freak.
E – Easiest Person To Talk To: girlfriends I grew up with! Even though I don’t get to see them very often, and even if we haven’t spoken in months, we pick up right where we left off any time we do talk or visit. Aren’t those friendships the best?
F – Favorite Song: Can’t Feel My Face by The Weeknd. I just can’t stop dancing to it! (Even if I can feel my face.)
G – Grossest Memory: closing the trunk door to Scott’s Jeep on my own head, bleeding everywhere, and having to get a long row of staples put into my head months before our wedding. You guys, I’m pretty awesome.
H – Hometown: Orlando, Florida! Well, technically, Longwood (which is about 30 minutes outside of the city). I was born and raised in Central Florida, then moved to the Southwest part of the state to attend the University of South Florida in Tampa. I moved back to Orlando in 2007 and then moved up to the Metro Detroit area with Scott in October 2012!
I – In Love With: Scott and all three of our fur babies. They make me laugh every single day.
(All hail the Queen!)
J – Jealous Of: anyone experiencing bathing suit weather today. I mean… it’s currently 61 degrees here… in August. C’mon Michigan.
K – Kindest Person You Know: all of the women in my family. They drop anything to help anyone!
L – Longest Relationship: New Years Day will be Scott and I’s 8 year date-iversary! Crazy.
M – Middle Name: Betty, after my Nana. I miss her so much. <3
N – Number of Siblings: I have a half-brother, Clay, and half-sister, Trish, both of which I consider to be fully related to. We all grew up in the same household and I tormented them with Barbies and temper tantrums throughout my entire childhood!
(Hahaha, this throwback is amazing, and the sour face on me is pretty accurate! I was a bit of a grouch as a child, so I’m told.)
O – One Wish: a glimpse into our lives six months from now. It could easily be completely different. That’s exciting and terrifying all at once!
P – Person you Spoke To On The Phone Last: my friend Ashley in Florida. (Miss you!)
Q – Question You’re Always Asked: “Do you miss dancing?” or “Would you ever dance for the NBA again?” My answer: Not likely. I’ve grown to appreciate my years on the court for what they were and am happy being in a completely different world now.
R – Reason To Smile: tomorrow is Friday!
S – Song You Last Sang: probably something by Gavin DeGraw with Scott. We have a slight obsession and may or may not have karaoke parties in the car.
T – Time You Woke Up: 7:45 a.m., even though I set my alarm for 6:30. It happens.
U – Underwear Color: teal… watch out now.
V – Vacation Destination: Costa Rica! Scott and I went for our honeymoon and we talk about revisiting all the time.
We’d also love to visit Greece or Hawaii. I went to Greece in high school as a family friend tagalong, and I would LOVE to go back with Scott someday. Also, Hawaii needs to happen sometime down the road. A trip to both are on the bucket list!
W – Worst Habit: trying to fit too much in at the last minute, which notoriously makes me late. Especially if I know I will be gone for a long period of time, I try to do a million things before I leave… fold laundry, empty the dishwasher, make the bed, basically anything I want to do that could probably wait until later.
And then I’m in a rush to get wherever in time. It’s a ridiculous struggle.
X – X-Rays You’ve Had: several on my teeth at the dentist, but haven’t had X-rays on my body. (Thirty years old and no broken bones – knock on wood – can you believe it?)
Y – Your Favorite Food: anything Italian, Mexican, Mediterranean, or ice cream. Oh, and pumpkin. Basically, food is my life.
Z – Zodiac Sign: Taurus. Growing up in our household filled with three Taurus women sure was interesting! I give my dad and brother major props for that one.
