a fun questionairre..

1. What is your favorite thing to snack on while your blogging?
Candy. I just finished eating some sweetarts. I love the blue and orange ones best!

2. What is one thing you wouldn’t want to live without?
Eyeliner. addicted since the 7th grade.

3. Beach, Mountains, or Farm? Where would you live if you had a choice?
the mountains. hands down. no questions.

4. What’s your least favorite chore/household duty?
there isn't really anything i hate doing, i'm just lazy most of the time. once i start cleaning though, i usually do everything in one fell swoop. i dont really like folding laundry or trying to put sheets on the bed by myself.

5. Who do people say you remind them of?
ugh. Britney Spears. all the time. i've gotten Drew Barrymore twice...i dont think i look like her at all!

6. Prefer parties and socializing or staying home with the fam?
I could copy my friend Whitney's answer word for word on this. I like to socialize when I'm in the mood but I'd rather stay home on the couch and watch my tv shows and surf the internet. i love having people over to our house though!

7. What’s your all time favorite movie?
I have three: Father of the Bride, Father of the Bride 2, and The Wizard of Oz

8. Do you sleep in your make-up or remove it like a good little girl every night?
I usually dont even wear make-up (like base/foundation) but I wear eyeliner, mascara, and blush everyday and usually don't take it off. but lately ive been using a new face lotion system my mimi gave me so i've been better about it.

9. Do you have a hidden talent or a deep desire to learn something that you’ve never had a chance to learn? What is it?
i dont know about talent but i can do a lot of stupid human tricks. weird thing with my tongue, hold my hands behind my back then pull them over my head. stick my fist in my mouth. im a freakshow.

10. What’s one strange thing you’re really good at?
Directions. I dont know if that's strange but i can find my way around anywhere. i can always tell which way im going in the grand scheme of things

11. What first attracted you to your spouse?
hmm, a lot of things but probably that he was singing, playing the guitar, and drinking a beer at the same time. :)

12. What is something you love to smell?
christmas trees!!!!! and leaves burning.

13. Tell something about you that you know irritates people.
i make a lot of weird noises. like, i do that scratchy throat thing, that's really annoying and sounds like a pig and everyone knows someone who does it and hates it. also i gag a lot, randomly.

14. When you have extra money, what’s the first thing you think to do with it?
shop :)

15. Are you a silent laugher or a loud laugher? What makes you laugh the hardest?
i'm a pretty silent laugher. matt is always dying laughing at stuff and says "you dont think that's funny??" bc im not laughing out loud. Anything Ellen says. I love Ellen.

16. Where is your favorite place to shop?
j crew if i have the money, ha! urban outfitters, forever 21, anthropologie, old navy :)

17. What’s one thing you’d do more often if you had more time?
if i had more time, i would probably do more of nothing, because i love having free time and not having anything important scheduled or doing homework, going to class, babysitting, cleaning, etc.

18. Are you a big spender or frugal?
i think im pretty frugal. i get the bargain shopping gene from my mom, so i love to find a good deal, the problem is, i find too many good deals and turning into a big spender :)

19. Who is your favorite character of all time?
ummmmmmmmmm. close tie between Dorothy and Annie from Father of the Bride :) :)

20. Would you want to be famous?
definitely but NOT for anything bad (like a scandal or nudey pictures or something) haha.

waiting for the weekend....

not to be a debbie downer, but these past couple weeks have just been ... stressful. i can't remember the last time i had a really good day. dont get me wrong, i have had good things happen several days... celebrating sarah's birthday, cookout with good friends, visit with lindsay temple and baby noah... but i just haven't have an overall good day.

school started out with flying colors. easy peasy, best grade in the class... then i had a test on bones last week that i BOMBED! (not just like naming the bones..but everything about them) a lot of words that sound the same etc etc. yikes. also my math class has started and its all the way in simpsonville and we are doing FRACTIONS right now .... fractions that i did in 6th grade... fractions so easy that i wonder how i was stupid enough not to test out of this MAT101 class. I guess it's better being easy than hard, but just sucks to drive 30 minutes there and 30 minutes back to sit there for 2 hrs. and 15 min. of stuff I've known since I was 11.

sorry for burdening you with my stress. now onto the good news.. it's our one year anniversary on sunday!! we are so blessed that my grandparents were kind enough to let us use the mtn house for the weekend. we're going up to highlands, nc friday and staying until tuesday! matt is taking a couple of days off and i've already told my teachers i wont be in class monday or tuesday (just missing 2 classes). it's going to be so nice to spend some time with matt. between him working and me at school, we really haven't had much time together lately. so i know i havent posted pictures in a while ...when we get back ill have some good mountain pictures to share! cooper and annie love the mtns too :)

so here's to hoping (knowing) the week's going to get better and anyone else having some bad days, pick your head up and truck on ... good days are coming!! :)
