Who Knew

The Lovely Jenny tagged me in a fun getting to know you game.  So here's some stuff you probably didn't know about me....

Please disregard the lovely highlighting - I can't figure out how to turn it off!

1. What is YOUR #1 goal for the next year?
Our current and biggest goal for the next year is to buy a house.  If you've read this blog at all recently you know we're in the process.  We got some bad news yesterday that the bank is dragging their feet and we probably won't be able to close for at least a couple of weeks later than we originally thought, but we're hoping the sellers are lenient with us.  Pppplleeasseeee.

2. What's your biggest fear in life (Something as simple as a reptile to something you fear about life in general.)
My biggest fear is growing up and not realizing it.  I always imagined myself having a really fulfilling life and job when I was a grown up.  I don't think I'm a grown up yet.  I'm not sure when I feel that I will be grown up, but I'm afraid that when it hits me I won't be where I thought I would.  My job is fun and it pays me, but I don't necessarily feel really fulfilled.  I love KB and our dogs but lots of times my life is really really boring.  I just want to do something bigger with my life and I don't want it to be too late for me to do so and not even realize it.

3. What is something you wish people knew about you, that they may not see or know when first getting to know you?
I'm really nice - I swear.  I put off a big "don't talk to me I hate you" vibe to people that I don't know.  Lots of people think I'm a snob or a bitch.  I'm just not a really overtly friendly person.  If I don't have anything to say to you - I won't.  It's not because I hate you, it's just because if I have to make up something to talk to you about then I probably just shouldn't talk at all.  Once you get to know me I'm really nice, but sometimes it just takes a while to get to that point.

4. What does your MOST favorite breakfast consist of??!
I hate syrup (HATE IT) and anything that it goes on (besides waffles) so no pancakes or french toast for me.  They are gross.  I really like eggs over easy with biscuits, honey and bacon.  I also really like egg sandwiches with cheese (but not egg mcmuffins).  I pretty much love all breakfast foods except the syrupy ones.

5. What's your favorite workout?
I like workouts that I know I've done something.  I want to sweat and pant and feel like I'm going to die by the end.  That way I know it's working and it's worth it.  I really like to do kickboxing and hard core step aerobics.  I also like to combine these with lower impact stuff sometimes like pilates and yoga, but for workouts - the harder the better.

6. Have you ever been skydiving? If not, why?
I've never been and I don't really want to.  I'm not a huge fan of heights and I get motion sickness really bad really easily.  I would probably puke mid air.  Not pretty.

7. What did you do growing up that got you into trouble?
I did lots of things growing up to get in trouble.  Most of them consisted of physician violence.  I was a pretty mean little kid.  I slammed my sister's leg in the car door, stomped on my sisters femur while she was sitting down, threw stuff at them, etc.

8. What story does a member of your family ALWAYS like to tell you (and everyone else) about??
I have lots of stories about me that get told a lot.  Probably the most common is when I was sent to my room for punishment (shocker) and I climbed out the window to escape.  I played outside for a while and then when I thought someone might come to check on me I tried to get back in the window.  I couldn't quite reach it and was locked outside.  I decided to just walk in the front door like nothing had happened and hope no one noticed.  They noticed....

9. What was the last TV, movie or book that made you cry or feel real emotions for?
Yesterday was a pretty sucky day dealing with the bank and all.  When I got home a friend sent me this....

I broke down.  I know there's been a lot of hate about Invisible Children and the main guy is a little creepy, but anything that raises awareness for the atrocities happening in Africa is good in my book.

10. What is your favorite time of the year and why (spring, fall, wedding season, birthdays?)
I really like summer.  The beach, the weather, the flowers, the long days.  I love it all.  It normally doesn't get too terribly hot where we live so it's not that bad. I'm normally pretty cold so I'm not warm unless it's over 85 outside.

11. Favorite song at the moment?
I've been loving anything from David Guetta.  He's my listen at work go-to.  Everything is so upbeat and peppy. Even though he doesn't technically sing anything it's still all good in my book.

I've gotten a few new followers recently and some older followers that I know love these things so I'm tagging the following...

The Domesticated Deviant
Life is Reediculous
Preppy Pink Crocodile
