6 Things You Might Not Know About Me

I was tagged by Denise to participate in a fun game! You pick 6 questions out of a list of 12 and answer them. This is a fun way to get to know more about fellow bloggers! Afterwards, you tag 6 more friends. I love this, and was so happy to be tagged! Thanks Denise. Check out her post here. Okay, so here goes:

1. Favorite movie, song, or TV show?

This is super hard, because I have tons of favorites of all 3! But, my all-time favorite movie is Dirty Dancing. I remember watching it as a kid (mom and dad, I hope you fast-forwarded thru the risqué scenes! Haha, notice the word fast-forward... oh the days of VHS!) and dancing in my living room. My dad and I had the ending lift nailed. I so enjoyed watching Jennifer Grey on Dancing With the Stars, and I'm pretty sure I cried for a whole day when I found out Patrick Swayze passed away. Okay, I guess I'm kind of giving 2 answers, because I also love the song "Time Of My Life." And now for your viewing pleasure...


2. Any funny stories to share that has happened recently?

Having an 18 month-old running around makes for many funny and interesting moments! Lately, she's started to mimic everything we do. If If we're in the car and Justin taps his leg along to the music, she taps her leg. If I snap my fingers, she tries to snap... it's hysterical really. There are no shortage of dull moment in this household!

We are currently potty training. Every time T pee-pees or poo-poos on the potty, she gets a cookie. She knows exactly where they are in the pantry, and after she does her business and flushes, she rushes to the pantry and points up, all while saying "cookie." The other night, she had already gone pee pee, but I guess 1 cookie wasn't enough for her. She ran into the bathroom, flushed the toilet, and then ran over the the pantry, pointing and yelling. Justin and I tried so hard not to laugh, but it was so funny. She didn't get a cookie...

I caught her mid snap!

3. Tell us something we don't know about you

In 2008, my best friend, Nicole and I went to Montana and Wyoming on a cattle drive. It was the trip of a lifetime, although during that exhausting week, I would never admit it. Complete with a hail storm, water falls, and sticking a hand up a cow's butt. Yep, ladies and gents, I actually went on a cattle drive, and I had a blast!

Look at that view!

4. What is your favorite or go-to outfit?

Hmm... another toughy because I have so many! But, recently, I wore a new Lilly dress that I'm obsessed with. Short in the front, longer in the back, strapless, gold detail, what's not to love? I paired it with a royal blue necklace, gold belt, and gold strappy sandals to make it not too dressy, but still chic. Love it, and can't wait to wear it again!

5. What's the coolest thing you've made? (food, craft, anything)

I like to consider myself a creative person, although lately, I've been slacking in that department. Being creative and artistic is something I hope to instill in Tinley. It's so much fun making homemade gifts. But, my absolute favorite thing I ever made was a scrapbook for Justin. I gave it to him before our wedding. I keep everything. I'm not like a hoarder, but I like to keep souvenirs. I had the piece of paper I gave him with my phone number on it so many years ago (it was actually in HIS wallet!), matches from our first official date, countless plane tickets, napkins, pictures, just so many little mementos that I kept over the years. And I put them all together in a scrap book that took me over a year to make. (I had to do it when he wasn't home, which made it so difficult!) I would like to add some pages to it, but like I said, I have been slack lately. I will get around to it eventually. Until then, I'll continue to save everything. :o)

6. What is the favorite part about marriage? Or what have you learned since being married?

Oh my goodness, so, so many things are my favorite, and I've also learned a lot. I just love sharing my life with someone who makes me smile and laugh all the time. We still have fun together like we did when we first met. And now that we have a daughter, it's a whole new world, but it's so much fun. Justin is the best father, and I love seeing him with Tinley. I've also learned how important communication is, and to compromise. We make a great team.
