August 4, 2012 at 7:50 pm 5 comments

Like I said this morning, I’m answering these questions from my nominators(?) of the Liebster award! πŸ™‚

11 Random Facts About Me:

1. I absolutely positively HATE BUGS. Once I couldn’t sleep for hours because there was a lightening bug in my room. Another time, I screamed because I touched a lady bug.

2. My body doesn’t handle temperature change very well. If I walk outside and it’s hot, I will immediately be sweating. But if I walk inside where it’s air conditioned, I will freeze. In the winter time, I’m always cold. Constantly. I sleep in sweat suits and keep heaters underneath the covers. It’s sad. lol

3. I hate taking showers. I know that’s weird, and TRUST me, I DO shower. The only part of a shower that I enjoy is in the middle. I’m comfortable in the water and feel clean. I hate getting in the shower because the water is never right at first. I hate the process of washing my hair because I will pull out handfuls of it. I hate shaving my legs because it’s just uncomfortable. And I hate getting out of the shower because it’s FREEZING.

That being said, I do not take for granted the fact that I actually have water to shower with daily. In that, I am very blessed!

4. When it comes to my nutrition, I don’t care what anyone thinks. I get weird looks and comments all the time when I bring my own food with me. People look disgusted when I tell them I drink almond milk and eat oats our of an almond butter jar. But ya know what? I just don’t care! It’s my body and I’m very proud of the foods I feed it. πŸ™‚

5. My brothers are two of my best friends. Don’t tell them I said that!

6. I was the first one to say I love you in mine and Chad’s relationship. πŸ™‚ I told him through a note I wrote him for his high school graduation, and he was mad because he said he had planned on telling me that night! lol

7. I have terrible road rage.

I have been doing my very best to control it lately and have literally been praying as I drive to keep myself calm! It’s working!

8. My first email address was SongbirdMGM@aol.com. Mom made it for me when I was in 5th grade. Geez…..

9. I’m convinced that the book “50 Shades of Gray” is porn in disguise. I’ve read excerpts from the book and heard people talk about it, and it just sounds completely disgusting! I don’t understand why people (women in particular) would read that and think ‘s ANY different than men (maybe your husband/boyfriend for example?) looking at porn! It’s NOT! Our imaginations can create some disturbing images people.

10. I’ve never seen the movie Scarface.

11. I been through SEVEN “best girl friends” since I was in Kindergarten. Two of those are still my very best friends! It’s crazy how we change and grow throughout our lives. Kind of sad, but it happens!

Now, on to…..

Jenna’s questions:

  1. Whats your favorite kind of ice cream/frozen yogurt? I love Eddy’s Pumpkin Spiced ice cream!! It’s the best stuff I’ve ever had! I’d eat it all year long if it wasn’t a seasonal flavor!
  2. Whats one of your favorite memories? Oh wow, that’s a hard one. I’d have to say my wedding day. It’s a day that I will never forget and will always hold a special place in my heart!
  3. Surf or turf (food I mean)? TURF! I like steak. πŸ™‚
  4. Favorite summer activity? Anything that involved being in the water! Especially if it’s ocean water πŸ™‚
  5. Where’s the one place you want to travel to? EUROPE EUROPE EUROPE!!!!!
  6. Whats your favorite movie? I love discovering new ones! ANOTHER tough question! I’d have to say anything from the Harry Potter series because I’m SUCH a HP nerd!
  7. Whats your go-to late night snack (healthy or unhealthy)? Anything with peanut/almond butter on top. πŸ˜‰ Maybe even just a spoonful of the stuff.
  8. What was your favorite subject in high school? Music was obviously my favorite class, but if we’re talking about core subjects, I would say my Advanced Writing/Speech class was my favorite!
  9. Dogs or cats? DOOOOOOGGGGGGGGS. Cats are scary, mean, and make me sneeze. 😦
  10. Do you think you relate to your zodiac sign? No. I’ve never really gotten into that stuff anyway.
  11. E-Readers or real books? E-readers are awesome and cool, but I love a REAL book any day! πŸ™‚

Jessie’s questions:

  1. What did you want to be when you were younger? Singer. Definitely.
  2. Do you enjoy breakfast, lunch, or dinner more? Breakfast is my all time FAVORITE meal of the day!!
  3. Are you a clean freak, or constantly put it off? hahahahaha I never clean. πŸ˜‰ Just ask Hubby.
  4. Have you ever had any serious injuries? Not really. I’ve broken some fingers and toes before, but the worst I think is when I chipped my nose. It didn’t require any brace or surgery, but it sure did HURT!
  5. Do you prefer the summer or winter? Okay, I have always been a summer baby. ALWAYS. But in the last 6 months since I’ve started running, I have been LOVING the cooler weather for my runs. I can’t believe it, but I’m wishing for winter right now. :/
  6. If you could meet any celebrity, or someone from the past who would it be? Hmmmm? I honestly have no idea?? Maybe Kara Goucher so I can ask her all kinds of running questions!
  7. Are you a sports fan? If so whose your favorite team I grew up an Alabama football fan, but now I don’t really care at all. I still love football, but I’m more of an all-around SEC fan. It just depends on who’s playing who? I also love the BRAVES! πŸ™‚
  8. Have you ever visited any places outside of the United States? Yes, I’ve been to Costa Rica and it is beyond amazing and beautiful! I want/NEED to go back soon!
  9. Where do you see yourself 5 years from now? 28 years old. Marathoner. Strong in my faith. Homeowner. And hopefully, Mommy. πŸ™‚
  10. Which do you like more; Running or Strength Training? Uhhhh serisouly???? I CANNOT answer that question! BOTH!!!
  11. What’s your favorite movie?Β Grrr…. yet again this hard question. I answered Harry Potter in the first set of questions, so I’m going to answer with “The Emperor’s New Groove” because I could watch that movie over and over and over and never get tired of it! hahaha

If you made it this far, CONGRATULATIONS!!! πŸ™‚

    Ah man…you listed soooo many things I relate to. I don’t know which one I want to comment on. I love HP. I watch one of the movies 5 nights out of the week to fall asleep to. Yes, 50 Shades is porn incognito. The only people I see reading it are middle age women who look like they need romance. I know, awful to say, but it’s awful to be sitting next to a 60ish woman on the train reading that novel. I even read a few lines over her shoulder and it wasn’t pretty. I’m forever changed.

    Yes, Pumpkin spice ice cream!?!?!?! I thought I was the only person who liked that flavor. And honestly, you MUST watch Scarface. I love love love that movie. one of my favorites in the world.
