11 things (I promise I tried to make it interesting)

You guys...  I am horrible at playing along with these tag posts. Mandy tagged me and I've decided to be a good bloggy friend for once and participate :) Plus her post was sooo fun to read, hope I can be that interesting!


I'm skipping the 11 random things about me because I REALLY do have a post coming up with my randoms :)

Questions from Mandy

1. What's the most interesting thing you have ever done?
 Oh good grief. My life is just not that interesting.... One time I was a model in a hair show. The hair, the make up, the outfit? so. not. me. It was interesting to say the least! This story would be even more interesting if I had pictures to show, but I lost those when my computer crashed :(  Does this lame story count?

2. How much time every day do you spend on the internet? (be honest people!) :)
Crap. Does netflix count? Cause Eric and I spend an hour or two each night watching a show and winding down for bed :) Honestly... I spend too much time on the internet right now. But to be fair, we just moved and for the past 2 weeks my life has been in limbo. I start working at the salon part time each week TODAY! Yay :) And soon I'll be teaching spin classes at the gym here. And someday I'll have new friends to go out with, haha.


3. What are some of your favorite blogs?
Shalyn, Ashley, Connie, Melanie, Alycia (not just because we're family!)... to name a few! I am leaving SO many out, but I have been following these girls pretty much since day one! I LOVE so many blogs! I am grateful for the blogging community and all of the friends it brings into my life.


4. If you had to eat at the same restaurant every day for a month, where would you choose?
If I have to choose a restaurant that I live near... I guess pizza factory. I don't really know of anything else around yet. And I don't see myself getting sick of pizza :) If I could choose any restaurant it would be Cheesecake Factory! YUM!


5. Who do you really look up to and admire?
Of course I look up to my parents and Eric's parents.... but I look up to/admire Jesus Christ the most! He is the only one who truly knows what it is like to defy temptation and live a sin free life. And He sacrificed his life for us because he loves us. I can only do my best to strive to be like Him each day.

6. If you could live anywhere in the world besides your current location, where would that be?
I would choose to live anywhere but here, haha! I'm sure someday I'll fall in love with our new town and won't ever want to move... But I'd LOVE to live by a warm, sunny beach. I would seriously visit the beach everyday!

7. How do you feel about reality shows?
It depends! The trashy reality shows are ridiculous but they suck me in every. time. There are definitely some inspirational reality shows like The Biggest Loser (which I've only ever watched 1 episode. Crazy, right?). The Bachelor/Bachelorette is my #1 fave trashy reality show :) And fyi? I love Courtney! She's perfect for Ben, I think they're both idiots. But at least she's entertaining :)


8. How would you describe your style?
I'm not sure that I have a specific style... but I guess I'd say girly. I love all things pink, sparkly, ruffly, and frilly! Although, I'd love to throw some colored jeans and blazers into my wardrobe! I'm loving those looks!

9. Where do you see yourself & your family in 10 years?
I didn't know if this was possible... but I see us both settled happily into our careers (Eric finally loves his job). I see us with a baby or two ;) and living in a home that we own. And I'm hoping to have a few vacations under the belt as well. I love to travel and Eric is learning to love it, too!

10. Favorite dessert?
 Any kind of dessert. If you haven't picked up on that yet... I'm that kind of girl. I love all desserts and sweets! Unless it has nuts in it, or pie. The only kind of pie I like is lemon meringue!
  
11. What is your most valued possession? (kids don't count) 
My wedding ring! I would cry forever and ever if I lost it!

EWWWHHHH COURTNEY!!!!! :P

:: ashley :: said...

i love cheesecake factory! this was such a fun post to learn more about you! seriously, i am loving your blog more & more!

Amanda said...

Love your answers! I like that you were real and honest with them, instead of cheesy :) Pizza sounds really good right now by the way...

Carlie said...

Court I totally agree with you that Court is perfect Ben, and she has definitely kept the show interesting.
Good luck today at the salon! =)

Becca Christensen said...

I think you did great ...and pizza for the win! : ]

Jes said...

and pizza is always perfection.
love your blog!

Aimee L said...

I honestly don't know how I feel about Courtney...my person & I can't decide if she's a victim of editing or not! At the moment I'm still on the side of not liking her...but I think I can be convinced otherwise...and I agree that they're perfect for each other (can't decide how I feel about Ben, either)!!

Karm said...

I have never eaten at Cheesecake factory... but I think I have to actually go there, because I just found out that DJ loooves strawberry cheesecake too.
I normally don't watch tv, but when I do... yup.. it's on ESPNU or in that area of channels haha
I like the questions and answers

Camille said...

I would most def live at the beach too...I am sure it would be amazing. Maybe not in the winter, but still. Haha.

Cheers.

Mandy@ a sorta fairytale said...

Yay thanks for playing!! We have a lot in common. I'd probably choose to eat at the Cheesecake Factory every day too. Their menu is huge and everything is so yummy!! And the Bachelor is the one trashy reality show I'm addicted to, as well. And I kind of agree with you about Courtney. Ben should pick her (and he probably will). They deserve each other. :)

Andrea Dickherber said...

I feel you on your life being in limbo post-move.
My husband and I just moved across the country for his job and though we're LOVING where we are (we get to live by the beach, like your dream #6!) it's rough not having friends immediately.
I'm sure we'll both get there eventually! :)

Alycia (Crowley Party) said...

fun read :) &yes... when I lost mine... I did cry for forever! haha

Alyx said...

ugh. I don't even want to think about how much time is spent on the internet in our house. It's ridiculous, but what is there to do when you live in the middle of nowhere?

Courtney said...

I am so glad im not the only one that likes Courtney. Its not even that I like her, I just think they work best together. The other finalist does nothing for me. She talks about her ex tooooo much!

Ashley said...

I'm pretty sure I could eat pizza every day forever too! (:

I also have to admit I'm hooked on The Bachelor, but I am not a Courtney fan. What you said does make sense though.... they're made for each other because they're definitely both 'off a bit'. hehe

If you move somewhere warm and sunny my vote is for Florida!! (the Gulf side) (:

Melanie said...

This was fab! I love learning more about my sweet friend! Lol.... The bachelor/bachelorette is my #1 guilty pleasure too. IT really does suck you in. Urggg! Thanks for the love my dear, I am honored to be one of your favs. Have a great time making all those peeps hair beautiful! Sending a big hug your way....!

lori said...

i spend a ridiculous amount of time on the internet now that im not working. don't worry about it ;)

the bachelor/bachelorette is my fave, too... although i think you are the ONLY person who has said they actually like courtney, lol. she is entertaining.

Whitney Leigh said...

I do not like Courtney, but that is because I heard she dated Reese Witherspoon's husband. While they were STILL married. What a shrew. But I do agree that her and Ben belong together. They both suck at life. I can't wait for Emily to be the Bachelorette, and I hope they bring Bently back because his drama, like Courtney's, was entertaining.

Purposely at Home said...

I lOvEd this Coutney!! All your answers were my fav. :) I hope you are having a happy day, girlie.

Legally Lovely said...

The Cheesecake Factory would be a great choice - they have so many options, you could never get bored! I can't believe you like Courtney! But, I do think her and Ben are made for each other. They're both dingbats!

itsallaboute said...

I gave you an award! check out my blog!

Rachel said...

I'm totally with you on the pizza I'm so over the bachelor this season. Courtney can have him!

Keri said...

I'm glad you answered the questions because I enjoyed reading about you. :)

I spend waaaaay too much time on the internet and I feel convicted just thinking about it right this minute (as I type this comment...ON THE INTERNET.).

Number 5! YES!! I love it and Him and good for you standing courageously, sister!

Kate @ Daffodils said...

I would trade my cold beach for a warm one :) And per your last post, motherhood is ALL of those things and each one is wonderful!

Ashley said...

i loved this! it's always cool to answer random questions like these!

btw - totally diggin' the new blog look! super cute!!

Samantha said...

This is SOOO fun I loved it. I have never understood these things I never understood if you're just supposed to do them or what. Great job I love that Jesus is who you admire!!

Janna Renee said...

I would have answered these questions almost EXACTLY the same as you! Seriously, it's like you were in my head :) Ps. I totally think you could pull off the blazer and colored jeans. I can actually picture you in them, and plus I think that you are so gorgeous that you could pull anything off. I'm serious- not just being nice!

Connie said...

You're so sweet. Thanks for the love! And I'm with you on Courtney and Ben!!! Haha!

Julie said...

Okay I'll agree with you that if we consider Ben and Courtney both idiots, then they are perfect for each other. Otherwise I'm not a Courtney fan...I hope he picks Lindzi BUT at the same time it will be interesting to see how many magazine covers Courtney & Ben will get, kinda like Vienna & Jake :)

Brittany said...

Such a cute post! I love pizza and the cheesecake factory too :)

Bon Bon said...

colored jeans. do it! you'd rock 'em! xoxo

That Girl said...

I love reading these!

Kelly said...

Mmm...I love me some Pizza Factory too! Their only downfall {at least to the ones I've been to} is their service...but so delicious!

Chelsea said...

I just have to say, that picture of you is STUNNING. Seriously, girl. You've got it goin' on. And I'll have to introduce you to some other good restaurants here in Cedar. We've got a few good ones.

The Sweetest Thing said...

Hi Sweetie, it appears that our feelings for each other are mutual! I love your blog also! YAY! I'm so excited about having new stalking material!

Megan said...

This really was so cute!! I misplaced my wedding ring for the first time a few days ago and I felt like I was having a heart attack! Haha!

Neon Blonde Runner said...

OH and PS I meant to tell you, I LOOOVE the new blog makeover :)

Kasey Lynne said...

Why can't you live in So Cal and teach a spin class because I would be your first student! I need a class like that to kick my butt back into shape for my wedding.

Umm #6? I think I just gave you an idea for a new home ;)

You already know how I feel about your answer to #7 haha

Holly said...

Yay for desserts! I don't like nuts either, although I do like pie. Mmmm, pie. :D
I love reading everyone's 11 Things posts, they're actually really interesting!

Michelle said...

Of course you were a model! You're gorgeous!

My husband and I watch Netflix before bed too...such a good way to unwind and forget about the day.

And yes on desserts!! Dessert is all I ever want. It's a problem :)

Crazy Shenanigans-JMO said...

We are totally addicted to netflix! I just keep adding and adding to our list.

Shalyn said...

MEEEEEE Court? You are the best! Thanks for the love! I have to admit I am a bit surprised doughnuts was not on the list of your fave desserts...is that because they are always the meal?;-)
