Getting to know all about you

My bloggy pal Jill "tagged" me, and that means you lucky folks get to learn some more things about me...I know, consider yourselves truly blessed.  I really like doing posts like these on Fridays because i participate in a few getting to know you type blog parties, and if i was discovering a new blog, I'd want to know more about that person.  But that's just me.  I'm rather nosey. 

So here are the questions that I have to answer.  Prepare yourself for enlightenment.

1. What is one thing you just can not stand?
Feet on the dashboard!  AAAAGGHHH!!  (double exclamation, for sure!!)  I just can not stand it, it is a huge pet peeve of mine.  I'm not even talking about my own dashboard, I'm just talking about driving by a car where a passenger has their feet on the their dashboard.  Barefoot or with shoes, I don't discriminate.  I'm irked by it all.  If you do this, is this comfortable?  Does the driver not have problems with this?  Do you ask permission of said driver before you do this? 

2. If you could go back to your childhood, what cartoon or t.v. show would you pick to be your all-time favorite?
I was strangely enthralled by Small Wonder. I think it was her monotone robot voice.

3. Whats something you do or have done that would surprise a lot of people?
Public speaking is a main part of my job.

4. Do you believe in ghosts?
Not 100% sure.

5. When you go into a store whats your weakness, something you just can't help yourself from buying more of?
Shoes on sale, which I then have to sneak into the house. 

6. What is the funniest story you have on your significant other?
It's just funny to hear his parents talk about him as a stubborn child, since he is one stubborn adult.

7. What is your proudest moment of being a parent? {animals do count ;)}
I am mom to 1 fantastically adorable cat, and i am proud when i call her and she comes running so excitedly, straight at me, looking me in the eye, and  i believe she is actually going to jump up on my lap, you can do it, good girl, but at the very last moment....she totally disses me.  Kids!

8. If you could go back and relive one day of your life, which day would you choose?
A day during last October's vacation...that i want to blog about in October.  It was full of delicious quiche, special hot chocolate, a romantic fairytale environment, a wonderful coincidence, raspberry beer, and a well worn copy of a Rick Steve's travel guide.

I am tagging everyone who read this and would like to answer these questions on your own blog.  If you do, would you let me know?  I'd love to come over and learn more about you!

And thank you, Sherlyn and your sweet, dimple faced children at Two Girls and a Soldier, who gave me this:

Lastly, thank you Fresh Nest Design for featuring my sunroom redo!  Whew.  Think that's it...have a fantastic weekend my friends!

What a great post! Stopping by from NFF (New Follower Woohoo!).
I must say I put my feet on the dashboard. Often. But only when I'm not driving.
Does this mean we can't be friends? ;)

Krystin said...

Oh no! I'm a definite feet on the dashboard kind of girl, but there are circumstances and reasons... 1.) I only do it on long trips with family or very close friends 2.) I only do it in vans, trucks, and suvs 3.) The reason I do it is because I'm very short and my body does not fit correctly in those big ol seats (not to mention sometimes my feet dangle like i'm a little kid) so about an hour in my lower back starts killing me, my feet are going numb and it just has to happen to somewhat remedy the uncomfortable predicament. Does it change your mind at all about my kind?!?

I loved Small Wonder too, but I think if I were to watch the show now it might freak me out. :) Thanks for stopping by my blog!

mmmmmm, sorry, I like my feet on the dashboard - my other half complains when I do it, so honestly I never get to. I'm just never comfy sitting 'normally'! And now I'm very curious about this amazing October day!! Looking forward to your post about it next month (when you know I'm expecting big halloween things from you!!!) :)
Thanks for playing along!!

Feet on dashboards is one of my pet peeves too! I just don't get it. I guess it's better than feet hanging out the window:) thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment.
