Ok Folks - wondering if you'll humor me on something today. I remember doing these little questionnaires in the past (either on facebook or through emails from friends) where questions were asked about yourself and you answered them and then passed them on to your friends for them to answer. It was a way to get to know one another better.
Well I thought it might be fun to do something like that through blogland. I know Amy from love made my home was very brave in a post in the recent past and shared a photo of herself and some information about herself...and I've been thinking about something like this ever since. So if you'll humor me I will start things off with a more current photo of myself and a little list of fun questions and my answers that may help you get to know me a bit better. If you'd like to play along, then please copy my questions and post them on your blog with your answers and info about yourself. Or feel free to just answer only the questions you want to, or even put some of your answers and info in my comments section. I just love my blogland buddies and would love to get to know you all a little better in a fun and even goofy way. So here goes:
Okay, this photo is sort of hilarious to me. I had taken it in the more recent past to update my facebook profile picture. But it is probably the most recent photo I have at the moment. I think it's funny as I look like I'm posing like a person on a bad soap opera show or something? "No doctor, I can't be having his baby!" Lol!!
On to some questions:1.What part of the world do you live? As many of you know already I hail from northern Wisconsin close to Lake Superior. Yes, I'll proudly say I'm a cheesehead.
2.How long have you been blogging? Since around the end of last November so only about 3 to 3&1/2 months.
3.To visualize even better what you look like - what color is your hair, your eyes... and how tall are you? I have brown hair naturally but I like blond high lights (blend better with my gray!). I have hazel/dark green eyes. I'm 5 feet 3 inches (a shrimp). Lol
4.What is your favorite color? I love the color red and always drawn to warm colors. I love neutrals for my home and wardrobe (earth tones - browns, tans, cream etc)
5.What is your favorite kind of music? I like listening to some of the current pop music on the radio that is more folk-like (ex. Ed Sheeran), but I find myself listening to pandora a lot and it's often on christian music or celtic music (Celtic Women)- something like that. But I truly love music in general so I like a little of it all: rock, pop, country, classical
6.What is your favorite food or kind of food? I love Thanksgiving dinner kind of comfort food for sure....but I think my favorite kind of food is Italian. If I had to pick a final meal it would be some kind of pasta and a wonderful glass of wine. (2nd place would be Mexican & 3rd would be Asian)
7.What is your favorite drink? I have to start my day with a cup of coffee each AM. But if talking alcohol I'd have to say wine (I love moscato, pinot grigio, reisling). But it's almost neck and neck with a good margarita!!
8.What is your favorite place you've ever traveled? And where would you like to go that you haven't yet? I was blessed to travel through parts of Europe and I really loved Italy!! I really related with the people (even though I'm not Italian at all - Lol) and of course see #6 again about favorite food. I also loved Poland! (part of my heritage). As far as going somewhere new: I'd really love to go to the United Kingdom (I especially want to get to England and Wales -also part of my heritage). I also think it would be really cool to go to New Zealand. It looks so beautiful to me.
9.Which famous person dead or alive would you like to meet and why? I know I should say someone historical or something but just fun answers come to my mind and the person I'd love to meet that's deceased is Katharine Hepburn as I just love her movies and loved her. I loved her strength, outspokeness and I think she was ahead of her time in many ways. I've read a lot about her life and background and she was truly fascinating to me. An alive person I'd like to meet is Ree Drummond - Pioneer Woman. Just love and admire her and she just seems like she'd be a lot of fun!
10.What new or unique hobby would you like to try? I would love to be a ghost hunter. Lol No,for real I would. I'm fascinated about the afterlife and I love watching shows where they try to help folks understand and deal with potential spirits in their house using actual scientific equipment. I have also had some personal experiences in my life. I'll just say that I don't think I'd be afraid, I'd be so curious and intrigued about what I might find.
*Bonus #11.I was only going to have 10 questions,but I'm curious to see what folks will answer to this one: What is something unusual about you that people may not know?
For me it's the fact that I see numbers and letters (even words) as masculine or feminine and I always have since I can ever remember. I've learned through the years that this is kind of unusual and I'm the only in my family and friends that I'm aware sees them this way. To share an example- to me most odd numbers are "male" and most even numbers are "female", but it goes a step further in that I see each specifically too. So a number like 6 or 8 I see as like a "tomboy" or tough female number. And I see the number 7 as effeminate for a masculine number. Ok, I'm just weird. And now you know that about me.
