100 Questions.

(Found this over at

  1. Are you young at heart, or an old soul? I'd say a little bit of both - I dread the thought of actually being old and I feel young but then I think and act a little "old" I guess. I've always been pretty serious about stuff.
  2. What makes someone a best friend? Someone that loves you no matter what and is there for you when you actually need them!
  3. What Christmas (or Hanukkah) present do you remember the most? When my hubby got me an iPod Touch! Totally unexpected and I loved it so much.
  4. Tell me about a movie/song/tv show/play/book that has changed your life. The Hunger Games. It sounds cliche but seriously, it made me totally rethink myself and life.
  5. Name one physical feature that you like about yourself, and one you dislike. I like my legs, and I hate my midsection.
  6. Would you like to reconnect with any friends you’ve lost contact with? Maybe, it's easy to remember the good until you're reconnected sometimes!
  7. What’s more important in a relationship: physical attraction or emotional connection? Emotional connection, if you have that it leads to a good physical connection as well.
  8. Name a movie that you knew would be terrible just from reading the title. Any Sci-Fi channel movie! Lol!.
  9. What holiday do you most look forward to? Thanksgiving and Christmas.
  10. How is the relationship between you and your parents? Ok, I guess. Not what I wish it was but that's life. My dad and I have always gotten along well, he's easy going and funny. My mom and I don't see eye to eye on anything pretty much so that kinda puts a strain between us.
  11. You’ve got the TV on, but you’re not really watching. What channel is the TV on? The Food Network
  12. Name a song that never fails to make you happy. That's All You Gotta Do by Brenda Lee

  14. Have you ever read the “missed connections” on Craigslist? Have you ever posted one, or wanted to? Nope. I don't even know what that is! Lol!
  15. If you could pick anywhere to live the rest of your life, where would it be? Not sure because I haven't visited everywhere! So I might think I want to stay there the rest of my life but how can I know for sure?! I'm pretty excited about living in Asheville, NC soon!
  16. Can money buy happiness? No, it can't. Until you learn to be happy with nothing you'll never be happy with everything. You'll constantly want more. But, it certainly can't hurt to have it!
  17. Do you drink? Smoke? Do drugs? Why, or why not? I maybe have a "drink" once a year. Seriously. I've never smoked and I've never done any drug of any kind. And I'm happy about that!
  18. Is there anyone close to you that you know you can’t trust? You don’t have to give names. Absolutely!
  19. Where was your favorite place to go when you were a little kid? Out in the woods to play.

  22. Do you like the type of music your parents listen to? Do your parents like the type of music you listen to? I like some of what my dad used to listen to like Led Zepplin and Fleetwood Mac. I don't know what my mom used to listen to. 
  23. Have you ever been bullied? Have you ever bullied anyone else? Not really bullied, I've been made fun of but not in a really serious way. And I'm not a bully at all! Perks of being home schooled I guess!
  24. If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be? Outback's steak and mashed potatoes!
  25. If your partner wanted to wait until marriage before having sex, would you stay in that relationship? Yes, of course, but I'm married so that's taken care of! Lol!
  26. Do you believe in a God? With all my heart!
  27. Of all the social networks in the world, why use twitter? Because I don't have to follow people I don't want to. If they want to follow/stalk me they can without me having to read their crap in return!
  28. What’s your favorite hashtag to track? I don't really track hashtags but I like to when I'm watching a TLC show, it's kinda funny to see the feedback.
  29. Would you call yourself/your family “middle class?” I think we are considered lower middle class! Lol!
  30. Name a TV series you didn’t enjoy until after it ended. Lost but then we never finished it after we started it.
  31. Have you ever bought a product from an infomercial? No! Most of that stuff looks like crap!
  32. If you could give up your car and never have to drive again, would you? No way, we're about to be a one car family for a month or so and I'm freaking out!
  33. If you go back to one point in time to give advice to yourself, when would you go and what would you say? I'd go back to the point where I decided not to have a wedding. I don't regret getting married but I regret letting the fact that some of my family members didn't want me to get married to stop me from having one of the most important days of my life. 
  34. What’s your “quirkiest” habit? Twirling my hair when I'm board, nervous or tired. It drives my hubby crazy!
  35. What is “normal?” Are you normal? Normal is subjective. I'm normal to me!
  36. Someone close to you is dying. You have the choice to let this person live for 10 more years, but if you do, you cause the death of 10 strangers. You don’t have to see them die. Do you take the offer? Sadly, I'd probably say yes. 
  37. What is one thing you could never forgive? People who harm/murder children. No sin is unforgivable to God but my human heart has a hard time forgiving people who do that kind of thing.

    1. We are moving up near Asheville, NC. My hubby has worked up that way for years now and I just got a job up there too so we're moving closer. A farmhouse in Carolina sounds enchanting but it's not! Haha! I'm not a country girl and I don't enjoy it. Plus I like more modern surroundings so a farmhouse is FAR from my dream home!
