My Blogger 411

1. How long have you been blogging? And what got you started on blogging? Has your blog changed?
According to my blogger info, I've been blogging over a year now, but not really consistently. I started the blog to basically keep track of pictures and happenings in my life. I think over time it is/will develop into more of an open forum of randomness. I am random, so my blog should probably be random also.

2. Did you go to college? If so where, and what did you study?
I went to the U of Memphis and majored in Accounting. Where my math nerds at?? Anyone?

3. Where have you traveled?
I've been to all parts of TN (duh), Florida, Texas, Missouri, New York, Jersey, DC, Philadelphia, Virginia, N and S Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Kentucky, Arkansas, Mississippi, Illinois, Maryland, Grand Cayman Island, and Mexico....wow, I sound like a real world {mostly} US traveler. Texas was when I was younger so I don't remember much of that, and Illinois was just where our hotel was located on one trip to St Louis. Besides those, the rest are "legit" in my book.

4. If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you would buy?
A house. Seems like a simple thing but I am hoping to be in a house by the end of the year/beginning of next year and I would love to be able to just build my own on a big piece of land. 

5. What are your 3 biggest pet peeves?
People that drag their feet when they walk. When someone smacks their food. And the misuse of "seen" and "done". (ex- I seen that shirt at the store. You done good.)

6. What is your favorite movie?
Sappy time....Serendipity. I love that movie. I usually watch it around Christmas time because they meet at Christmas. I just love how their paths cross multiple times. Spoiler alert when he opens the present and it's THE book, I cry. Or let out an awkward squeal. Every.time. This movie to me just screams "what's meant to be will be." Sidenote: I love most movies that take place in NYC just because they are set in NYC. 

7. What is your drink of choice; wine, beer, or liquor. Or Water, Soda, Tea?
On most days, Dr Pepper. I'm a pepper. But lately I've been "enjoying" water and Dr Pepper Ten in order to lower my calories for the day. Also was a big fan of blackberry wine this weekend.

8. What is something you enjoy to do when you have me time?
Shop. Period. I can shop any day of the week whether I'm buying or just browsing. I love it. I truly believe in retail therapy. 

9. If you could have a $10,000 shopping spree to one store, which store would it be?
If I don't have to spend it all at once, I would say Marshall's. Yea, that sounds weird, but I swear I find more things that I like and that fit me there. 

10. Share with us an embarrassing moment of your past? Or present.
Whenever this question pops up, the only embarrassing memory I have {bc I've blocked the rest out} is from freshman year of high school. Ok maybe it was 8th grade, can't remember. I was racing a friend upstairs and to our next class. Why? I have no idea. I beat her to the door and tried to slam it real hard behind me, and I slammed too soon. The door hit my heel and I fell face first onto the floor in the front of class. Luckily, I went to a tiny school and I wasn't trying to be all "too cool for school" at all. 

11. What day would you love to relive again?
This could be interpreted many ways. If I was going back to relive times from my past and change something, I would go back to a point in my life when I was at my lowest and instead of making a weak choice, I would make a much stronger one. I wouldn't take 4 years to realize how strong I really am. I would reassure myself that I can do anything I set my mind to. 

12. If your life was turned into a movie... what actor would play you?
I would say Jennifer Anniston...haha, but seriously. I have no clue, but I would love for her to play me. Probably the Friends her though, a little naive and into clothes #whatgirlisnt. 

13. What are the jobs you had in high school/college/the early years?
I babysat in high school during two summers. My senior year I was a hostess at O'Charley's. Then I actually worked in a cotton gin. Have I mentioned I'm country? I actually did mostly paperwork and filing. Great job for a college kid. Then I got a job at a bank working in collections. Talk about an interesting job. I finished up at a different bank at the end of my college career and I've been at my current job ever since I graduated. 

14. Show us a picture from high school or college.
I just had to search facebook for a pic I was tagged in from high school....wow, there are some interesting picture of me out there on the internets!
I apologize....but it was 2001. I thought my forehead was too big to go naked. And I apparently didn't like my eyebrows to be even or thin. And I'm blaming the whiteness on the camera flash...yea, that's what I'm going with. 

15. If you could travel anywhere in the world, all expenses paid, where would you go?
Italy and Greece. I have always wanted to go on a European vacation to those two places. I want to Ireland also but I've always wanted to see Italy and Greece first. 

16. Show us the most current picture of you or you & your family, or anything of meaning to you. 

17. Where do you see your life 5 years from now?
In five years, I better be see myself married and in a larger house with enough room for family additions. In 5 years, my daughter will be 14. That is a panic attack type scary thought.

I would like to note that A) the house you buy should be located next to me and B) those family additions better already be around here within 5 years. #justsayin #memphis
