1. What do you do differently when no one is watching or around to see you?

 

I tend to sit in very un-ladylike positions and I do a TON of online bargain hunting. I rarely buy anything, but a couple weeks ago I found two dresses at Sears.com for $7 each. They should be arriving any day now!

 

2. What did you dream of becoming when you were younger, and why?

 

I wanted to be a lawyer because I was in love with the show “JAG.” I realized, though, that I didn’t actually want to be a trial lawyer because you have to speak in front of people, so what was the point? 

 

3. What do you remember about your first ever crush?

 

My first crush was in elementary school and we’re actually still acquaintances. He’s a great guy, we almost dated in high school, but we have very different opinions about family life and politics and a ton of other things. 

 

4. What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?

 

Once in college I drove (with three friends) to Chicago just to eat pizza from Giordano’s. It was one of those times when you get in the car and you ask people where they want to go, you all agree something ridiculous sounds good, but no one ever says ‘turn around.’ 

 

5. What “childish” things do you still enjoy as an adult?

 

I love little kid movies still. My mom and I watch 3D versions of animated movies together frequently. 

 

6. What are some of your favorite memories with your grandparents?

 

I really enjoyed spending the night at my paternal grandparents’ because they would always get the same Marsh donuts and milk. 

 

My maternal grandma used to play a tape she had recorded of a mountain lion screaming and my cousin and sister and I used to huddle under the covers at night because we couldn’t sleep, lol. 

 

And some more simple ones:

 

7. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?

 

I don’t even own shoes with ties. I’m a ballet flat kind of girl.

 

8. Were you named after anyone?

 

My dad and I share a middle name :). 

 

9. Do you prefer to wear pants, dresses, or skirts?

 

Dresses, but the loose, breezy kind. They’re just easier, and better when you’ve lost a bunch of weight like I did and you’re afraid it will return!

 

10. Fill in the blank: Peanut butter and __________?

 

Chips.

1. What do you do differently when no one is watching or around to see you? Dress! I look like a complete slob if no one else is around. Like, walking around in underwear with zit cream on. Not a good look.

2. What did you dream of becoming when you were younger, and why? I wanted to be a vet! That quickly changed..I can’t deal with animals being in pain!

3. What do you remember about your first ever crush? Hahaha his name was Tom, and I remember I told my older sister and she came to our recess one day and said ‘Who’s Tom?!’ and then when he raised his hand, she told him I liked him. I was mortified. Stupid effing sister.

4. What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done? One night my friend and I saw these guys with crotch rockets at McDonalds. We each got on one and they took us for a ride. They were going over 100mph on a busy street. It was terrifying. Add in the fact that I’m now isolated with a strange man who could have done god-knows-what with me. It was fun, but totally stupid looking back at it. I don’t know if its the ‘craziest’ thing I’ve done…but it sticks out!

5. What “childish” things do you still enjoy as an adult? Um, pretty much everything? Food especially! I could survive off of eggos, lunchables, pb&j, ramen, etc. Also, movies!!

1. What do you do differently when no one is watching or around to see you?

I don’t wear a bra. Seriously, I hate bra’s. So when I’m alone, I’m not wearing on. 

2. What did you dream of becoming when you were younger, and why?

A fireman. My grandpa was a fireman and I idolized him. I wanted to be just like him.

3. What do you remember about your first ever crush?

Everything. His name was George and I was crushing on him from kinder to 6th grade when I moved away. I even remember his accent. (Yay photographic memory?)

4. What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?

I’ve done 15000000 crazy things. I used to take SO many risks, just for the sake of having said I’ve done it. Bungie jumping, skydiving, base jumping, swimming with sharks, I was nuts before I had kids. 

5. What “childish” things do you still enjoy as an adult?

I watch Power Rangers. And Thundercats. And Looney Tunes. 

6. What are some of your favorite memories with your grandparents (from when you where little)?

My grandma practically raised me. She taught me how to cook, how to bake, how to ride a horse, how to clean a barn. My grandpa was a master at workworking before the muscular distropy took away the use of his arms, and he taught me how to work with wood. Saws, routers, planers, how to build things. He also taught me the secret to making the best pancakes ever. (My kids vouch for this). They taught me the value of working hard, morals, and values. I am very old fashioned, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. This year my grandparents will celebrate 60 years of marriage. I said that was awesome that they’d been happy together that long and they both laughed and my grandma said “I wouldn’t call it all happy” and we had a good laugh. They’re such great people.

7. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?

Depends on the shoes. Some I do. Some I don’t.

8. Were you named after anyone?

My first name after a long ago far away cousin or something. My two middle names came from each of my grandmothers.
