Kitties are too cute. And oh! A (fun) little tag! :)


So Shamarah at I Shall Not be Moved, and Sweetpea at project foto have both tagged me in this lovely little tag! And the cool thing was that I actually enjoyed doing it ;) Even if it took forever :)

The Rules:
1) Post these rules.
2) Post 11 random things about yourself
3) Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post
4) Create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer
5) Go to their blog and tell them they've been tagged
6) No cop-outs in the tagging section like, "If you are reading this" or "if you follow me". You have to legitimately tag people!


My 11 random things:

1. Cadbury cream eggs are my absolute favorite Easter candy. Mmmmmm!

2. My biggest pet peeve lately: if one person mentions some sort of malady they have, and the person they're talking to like, tries to outdo it with their own malady. For example: Person 1: "I've got the worst headache!" Person 2: "My head's been killing me all day". Not so big a deal, right? But if it's every single time, it gets on my nerves to the point where I just want to scream.
Glad I got that off my chest ;)

3. I really hate exercising. I hate to not exercise, because it makes me feel better, but I hate the actual work involved in exercising. Ha.

4. I've been crazy against "lol" now for years. But all of a sudden, typing "lol" makes me giggle! So I've been using it more often ;) And if you know me, you know that when I type "lol", it's at least a little bit sarcastic :)

5. Finding other bloggers on Facebook and Pinterest makes me ridiculously happy. It's just so neat!! I love you guys, you know ;)

6. I've been gradually collecting all the Disney movies on DVD...and at this point, I'm only missing like, 4 of the original classics. (Broken VHS player=frantic Disney-less me)

7. When I'm around people who act like Eeyore, I automatically get sillier and cheerier and happier. I've actually noticed that it's something I can't even help. It's like my defense to ya'll trying to bring me down, you know? ;)

8. When I was little, I was obsessed with all animal prints, especially leopard print. My Nana even got me this weird high-heel shoe chair that was leopard print :o And I'm not even going to mention the snakeskin vest I paraded around town wearing...*cough*

9. I really, really enjoy having blue eyes.

10. I don't know why...but I associate Mary Poppins with some level of scariness in my mind. As in, "Feed the Birds" just came on on Pandora, and I've got that nauseous feeling I get when I think about the wicked witch of the west in Wizard of Oz. *shiver*

11. Lately, I've been a little bit obsessive about keeping track of names for my future children. See, now that I work in a doctor's office, and there are people constantly coming and going, and tons of people whose files I am filing, I'm hearing lotsa names! There are some very good ones ;) I already know what my first daughter's name will be...but that's a secret for now :)


Questions from Sweetpea:

1. What is the one place you would most love to visit?

2. What is the best book(s) you have ever read?
~Redeeming Love, by Francine Rivers. Never has a book impacted me as that one has. So, so powerful, and wonderfully written.

3. a thing you CANNOT STAND about guys.
~Hmmm. Well...I guess it depends. Because not all guys are the same, that's for sure. And there's not really one "in general" thing that I can't stand (or at least I can't think of it right now). But as far as individuals go, there's always something to find, if you so wish ;) But other than that, I mean, there are things some guys do that I can't stand; such as being in a different relationship every other week, things like that.

4. Your favorite nail color? On others and on yourself
~I'm a big fan of purple. But lately, I've not been painting my nails too much. So much work :P

5. What's one thing you've always wanted to do...but didn't?
~Watch Indiana Jones. And Star Wars. I've seen neither. Bits and pieces of both of course, but never the whole way through ;)

6. How much water do you drink?
~A ton. It's pretty much all I drink. Ever since I went to the Dominican, where I really learned to appreciate my water; not only because it's somewhat difficult to get in some places there, but because in 105 degree heat, your water is what keeps you from passing out! Ever since we came back from our trip, my water bottle has become my constant companion. It's habit now that I drink a ridiculous amount every day ;)

7. You know that Jesus loves you? And that he died for you?
~Yes ma'am, I do :)

8. What are the most interesting living arrangements you've had?
~Well, five years ago this May, we had a housefire. We live across the street from my Nana and Pap, and so that night, our whole family (all 6 of us) crammed into her basement on air mattresses that all deflated by morning, which was extra sucky because the floor was freezing.
But anyways, then we lived in the house next door that had been empty for a while because the previous family had moved to NC and hadn't been able to sell it, and so they let us rent it while our house was getting fixed back up.
So living in the house next door was probably the most interesting ;)

9. Bath or shower?

10. Whyyy is "legit" such an overused word?
~Haha! Um. Because it's like this weird trend that just randomly started. And trends are so "cool". ;)

11. How do you feel about nowadays technology?
~I think it's very useful. But at the same time, it's a bit bothersome. Relationships aren't what they once were, and that's something that bothers me a bit. But at the same time, things like Facebook are fabulous for keeping in touch with people you otherwise wouldn't have continued to speak to. But then it makes me wonder, if your relationship with that person was meant to end when it sort of did, but Facebook is the reason it's been sustained, is that right? Or not?
...I'm totally babbling over this that makes probably no sense to ya'll. Oh well ;)


MY 11 questions for you!

1. If you could spend one day with anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would you spend it with?
2. What is your current favorite song?
3. What's your favorite summer activity, big or small?
4. Let's say you get a cat. A really cute, really fluffy, really adorable cat. What do you name it?
5. If you could own one exotic animal, with the guarantee that it wouldn't eat you, or trample you, or some other tragic thing...what would it be?
6. Who is the scariest movie villain?
7. Did you like Aurora's dress more when it was pink, or when it was blue?
8. Who inspires you most, whether they be famous or non-famous?
9. Would you rather sit down with a good book, or sit down all comfy cozy with the laptop and read blogs, pin stuff, Facebook creep, etc...?
10. Absolute favorite Disney character? (See, everything comes back to Disney with me ;))
11. What is one of your favorite quotes?


And I hereby tag:

But let's be real. If you want to do this tag, please, go ahead. I just didn't want to break the rules! ;)

Well, blogger pals, I'm off to sweet dreams of life, love, and the pursuit of happiness.
Buenas noches :D

Kitty bids thee farewell ;)
