Questions and Giveaway Winners!

Kate @ You, Betcha Baby! nominated me for Liebster award! Instead of playing by the rules (I'm a rule-breaker, what can I say?) I thought I would answer her questions today!

  1. Why did you start blogging?
    I started blogging in 2009 and mainly just to keep record of our lives. I had a Xanga when I was a freshman and college and I've always found writing therapeutic. I've had over 700 posts on this little blog and it's become a great way to track memories. 

  2. What would you do (job wise) if you had nothing to lose?
    This is such a great question! If money were no object there are lots of things I could see myself doing. Working part time at a cute boutique where I got a HUGE discount, working at a bakery decorating cute things, blogging as a job, writing a book... I could go on and on! 

  3. What was your first car (make/model)?
    A two-door white 1995 Pontiac Sunfire and I LOVED it! I named her Scott.

  4. Early bird or night owl?
    Both. I'm a weirdo. I can get a lot accomplished at night, but I love waking up early. 

  5. Gifts: Better to give or receive?
    Giving. Receiving gifts is totally awkward!

  6. Favorite ice cream flavor?
    Chocolate/Vanilla swirl with sprinkles ;)

  7. What is the craziest thing you have ever done?
    I'm not that crazy and I find myself getting less and less adventurous as I get older. I ate a worm on a church youth group trip and I went scuba diving with skarks with my dad when I was 13. That's about it. 

  8. 5 things you buy every/almost every time your go to the grocery store.
    Fiji apples
    Turkey Bacon
    Gogurts (Kendall)

  9. Give me 3 (or more) songs that would be on the soundtrack of your life.
    This is a hard one. Most songs I don't relate to on a literal level...  Here's my best shot

    Unwritten - Natasha Beddingfield - Of course it reminds me of the Hills, but the words always tell me I can do anything I want and my future is bright.
    Knees to the Earth - Watermark - This song makes me cry and always reminds me I need to trust Jesus in all things. 
    Hokey pokey - Yes, the one you hear at weddings. Kendall loves this song and she even asks Suri to play it when she has my phone. I will forever picture Chris, Kendall and myself dancing to this in our living room. Great memories of my sweet family!

  10. What is your favorite chap stick?
    I buy good old cherry chap stick. I also like the vaseline kind that comes in the tube. Chap stick is something I buy ALL the time, but I can never find it when I need it!
  11. Are you a dog person or cat person?
    DOG! I hate cats. Sorry, not sorry.

    Thanks to everyone who entered! I will do another giveaway again soon!


  1. I am 110% with you on gifts. Whenever someone gets me something that they seem excited about I tell myself the whole time I open it to act like I like it no matter what. I know I sound horrible but I can’t help it!

  2. new follower from over at Kates' blog!
    scuba diving with the sharks sounds totally awesome!!
    the hokey pokey really is what its all about ;)

  3. I ate a worm once too!! For truth or dare. So glad you found my blog through the guest post on Whit's today. I love yours!

  4. I hate cats too and believe in the good old school chapstick but recently started using this stuff called Baby Lips. You should try it. It's quite addicting! Ha! Thanks again for doing the giveaway! I am so excited!
