Happy Hump Day. The fabulous Em from My Favorite Day tagged me in this post that has been circling youtube and since there are a few new faces I figured this was a great way to learn a little bit more about me. Plus who doesn’t love random facts.
1: What are you wearing?
I am wearing a maxi dress that I got from Target. I love it! Get it here.
2: Ever been in love?
Yes but not currently. 😉
3: Ever had a terrible breakup?
Yes, more than I would care for. Why do guys try and argue with you when you break up with them? That is not going to make me change my mind, only solidify it.
4: How tall are you?
I am 5’6″ but always wished I was taller, oh well.
5: How much do you weigh?
Don’t they know it’s rude to ask a woman this question?
6: Any tattoos?
Nope. Not a fan of pain and too indecisive.
7: Any piercings?
I have 7 in my ears though I don’t wear earrings most days. I had my tongue pierced when I was younger.
Is this supposed to be one true pairing? If so peanut butter and jelly?
9: Favorite show?
10: Favorite bands?
Recently – Devour the Day, Asking Alexandria, Breaking Benjamin, Citizen Cope, In This Moment (Rocker at Heart)
11: Something you miss?
Having the Summer’s off. Oh to be in college again.
12: Favorite song?
So many to count but Are We Really Through by Ray LaMontagne – though love anything by him.
13: How old are you?
35 – yup i’m old-er.
14: Zodiac sign?
Virgo – Fit it to a T with a little Leo mixed in.
15: Quality you look for in a partner?
I love a guy who is active but can chill on the couch too. Someone who doesn’t take themselves too seriously and isn’t materialistic. Is always seeking to learn new things, can make me laugh, and judge me. Someone who will call me on my bullshit but never in a rude way. Physically I love a tall guy with broad shoulders. A rugged outdoorsy guy gets me every time. Picky much?! Haha.
16: Favorite Quote?
“To the world you may be just one person, but to one person you may be the world.” – Brandi Snyder
17: Favorite actor?
For style and skill – Giovanni Ribisi. He just transforms so much for each role.
Hotness factor – Ryan Reynolds
18: Favorite color?
Yellow, Yellow and Yellow
19: Loud music or soft?
Loud for working out, soft for stressful days
20: Where do you go when you’re sad?
Home or Hiking. I feel the most calm in nature and the silence gives me space to think, plus a workout.
21: How long does it take you to shower?
No more than 10 minutes and that is only if I am shaving.
22: How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
Seamus always wakes me up earlier than I would ever want so I am usually up for 1:30 to 2 hours before I leave for work but only 30-45 minutes to get ready including making my lunch, showering, hair and makeup. I usually read too to help wake-up.
23: Ever been in a physical fight?
Yes, I was a scrappy kid when I was younger especially after my parents divorced. I was usually defending myself or someone else though.
24: Turn on?
Jeans and a plain tee with work boots is pretty hot but its all about attitude.
25: Turn off?
Smoking, selfish, or rude to others.
Any that surprised you to learn?
Since these are possibly things you don’t know about me I am considering them confessions because I want to linkup with one of my bloggy besties Kathy from Vodka and Soda for Humpday Confessions and with Liz from Fitness Blondie for the Hump Day Blog Hop.
kathy@vodka and soda says
we are bloggy kindred spirits because i love that you love hiking and ryan reynolds. all hail canadian awesomeness (he’s from vancouver). and the weather is warm enough for you to wear maxi dresses? we’re not quite there yet…although i heard friday is going to be 17 degrees and everyone is excited about that 🙂
Gotta love Ryan, a lot of hotties are from Canada which means I must visit! I have been for 2 weeks even though it rained a lot! It’s been in the 40’s and 50’s so warm enough for me, Friday is forecasted at 70 degrees!!!
YELLOW! My favorite color too… and I’m 35. Maybe we’re the same person? Nope – I think you sound a lot tougher than me. Happy Hump Day!
Yellow is the best, hard to not be happy around yellow! I don’t know about tougher! 😉 happy Hump Day!!
I love yellow too 🙂 And that maxi dress is DARLING! Thank you for explaining the OTP thing. I’m not as young and hip as I used to be–and I was too lazy to google it but have been seeing it everywhere! haha 🙂
It is my new favorite dress! I had to google it too! Haha!
Seven ear piercings, whoa! I mean I guess I had five in college so what’s two more but it sounds like a lot (since I only wear two now…). I can’t see Giovanni Ribisi without thinking of him as Frank Buffay dating the mom from That 70s Show. Kinda kills the hotness factor. And please teach me how to be a rocker chick so my 13 year old niece will think I’m cool. You like some of her favorites (I like to think her taste is advanced :))!
I almost never wear any earring. I thought they would close but nope. So funny he has been in so much since then though, he is more an indie character than hotness. I keep Ryan around for that one. 😉 Pandora!! It has turned me on to different bands I never would have heard otherwise.
Linda Sheridan says
These things are always entertaining to read! Love knowing little things and big things about people, especially internet friends! I regret my second earholes, LOL! I wear post earrings in both holes all the time! Have a happy day! Love SMD’s momma
I never wear earrings these days i am always shocked they haven’t closed up.
I learned that you are older like me! I love finding non-twenty something bloggers, it feels like we are in the minority!
I was scrappy when I was younger too, sometimes I wish I still could be. 🙂
Not older – wiser! 😉 We do seem to be a smaller group. Haha.
Fun post! That pb&j looks delish!
If I Had 100 Dollars says
Maybe I’ll get a dog so I can have time to do my make up in the morning! haha!
Haha! He does make it impossible to sleep in but he is a cutie so it’s worth it.
i made a video version of this and never posted it. maybe i should! loved learning more about u
You should post it. Great way for people to learn more about you.
This was such a fun post! My dogs only wake me up on the weekends…they’re usually both still sleeping when I get up for work 🙂
You lucky girl!! Seamus is such an early bird. Usually 4am or 5am if he’s “sleeping in”.
Heather @ My Little HEA says
I love your yellow love! Boomer gets up with me but that lucky dog gets to go back to bed after he does his business and eats! Sometimes I think I should be a teacher just so I can have Summers off again!
Yellow is the best! I wish I could fall back asleep. Sometimes I can on the weekends but not usually. Yes, even just a month off at once would really boost morale.
We need to go to a concert together!!! I didn’t know you liked DTD…My friend played drums for them for a while.
We do!!! No way that is so cool!!! They are a recent addiction but I love them!
SMD @ Life According to Steph says
I’ve only ever been in fisticuffs to defend others.
I love Ray Lamontagne!
My dogs like to sleep in…unless I want to sleep in. Then they want to get up.
Yes I can’t believe I used to but I didn’t take any bull. His voice is so soothing. He is a true musician. It iS always the other way around. Seamus is not having it he is an early bird.
Yellow is my favorite too 🙂 Hawkeye yellow! How do you shower so fast?! My hair takes that freaking long, and I feel like you have long thick hair like I do!
Hawkeye yellow haha!! Love it! I am not delicate by any means. I rush through it. While I condition I shave then rinse and body wash. My hair is on the thinner side but I have a lot of it so it isn’t too bad.
I always love reading these!! Pretty surprised to learn you were a scrappy kid!! I miss summers off so much!! Ah to be a child again!
I know it seems so long ago, always defending the underdog and myself. Seriously no where to be and running around all day, yes please!!
I love In This Moment!!
They are so good and makes me pick up the pace in the gym!!
Kandid Kristen says
We LOVE The Following at our house! It’s so twisted and creepy!
It is so good but yes so creepy. Can’t imagine if that was real. *Shiver*
Kate @ Another Clean Slate says
Yellow is my favorite. I had a tongue piercing too- so embarrassing to admit! AND I am all caught up with The Following- so good!!
Oh to be young and foolish! They were the thing to do! The Following is so good. Creepy but good.
Ooh I love the Following too, and that reminds me I need to catch up with this week’s episode! And hey, being picky about partners is a good thing- never settle! 🙂
I never want to settle! It was so good and I actually know one of the actors on the show!!
Emily Kracht says
YAY! Thanks for sharing!! Ryan Reynolds. So much yes! I miss having summers off too! It’s definitely my busiest time of year!
Hopefully you get to enjoy the beach a little but busy is good!
Emily Kracht says
Oh! and is that what OTP means?!?! I had no clue!!
Me either I had to google it!! Haha!
Liz @ Fitness Blondie says
Oh lord girlfriend, I bet that dress looks absolutely beautiful on you! And I am with you on guys and break ups – why on earth would one argue? If someone doesn’t want to be with you – accept it! I also love “The Following” so creepy and twisted, hahaha!
Thank you! 😉 It is so awkward, little why just let it go. So creepy but so good.
courses online canada free says
Your article perfectly shows what I needed to know, thanks!
Ohhh that dress is cute! I haven’t found a maxi dress that I can pull off yet. I am 5’6″ too.
7 ear piercings? How is there enough space? I am a huge baby and could only stand to do mine twice in each ear. I REALLY wanted a cart piercing when I was younger but couldn’t bring myself to do it.
Thank you! It is so comfy. You can totally pull it off. Haha! I have three in each ear and then one at the top though I never wear earrings. If I do it is just the bottoms that I got when I was like 1 or 2.
Happy to see a fellow rocker blogger out there! I feel like I am lost in a sea of country and pop. I like those too but rock will forever be #1. In This Moment is one of my favorites! I am actually going to see Chevelle tomorrow night and am very excited.
Rock on girl!! I know Country seems to be everywhere so I have liked a song or two but Rock is where it is at! Wow I haven’t heard anything from them lately, but I like them too! That should be a blast!
That maxi dress looks so comfortable! Love it!
It is so comfortable and flattering too. It is my favorite one right now.
Giiirrrlll you’re afraid of pain and you once had a TONGUE RING?? Omg I just can’t even think of that pain lol buuut I do have a tattoo. And seriously, maxi dresses and skirts are the best EVER. They look fabulous and they are full-bodied yoga pants (comfy). 😀
Haha! The tongue ring was actually pain free. It hurt worse to get my ears done. They are so comfy and really the dresses means no having to find a top to max the bottom. Lazy girl status! 😉
I love that you’ve kicked some ass in your day! 😛
I also love that maxi dress and I’m pissed you posted it during my spending challenge. Bitch.
I was a hellion! Ooops. Sorry girl but it is awesome had to share. 🙂
I can’t get tattoos either because I can’t ever make up my mind. I mean, I have an internal crisis if someone asks me to pick where we eat dinner. I can’t imagine trying to decide on something that will be inked on me forever 🙂
Right?! I mean think how many times fashion comes in and out of our lives! Just think if you had a bell bottoms tattoo. Point taken! 😉 Haha! Now if it was disappearing ink I might consider it.
Loved getting to know you better! I’m a virgo too and that quote is one of my favourites too! 🙂
Thanks! Yeah another Virgo! You get me! 🙂 It is so true and really the one is all that matters.
I’m rocking a maxi today too and I lovvvve it! So comfy.
Isn’t it the best!! Finally warm enough for it!
Kateri Von Steal says
Found you from the Blog Hop over at Fitness Blondie!
Giovanni Ribisi and Ryan Reynolds? uhm.. YES!!!!
Hiking and Rugged Men? uhmmmmmmmm DOUBLE YES!!!
We’re soul sisters, obviously.
Can’t wait to read more from you!
We are soul sisters!! I feel like every time I say Giovanni Ribisi people are like who?? He is so talented and amazing. Ryan is just sexy eye candy! 😉
Oh man, I really miss having summers off too! I work at a university, so I am always so jealous of the students when they leave in May!
Love that dress that you are wearing!
Wouldn’t it be nice if we could have summers off. Sigh. Thank you, it is so comfy too.
Nichole C says
Oooh, how fun! Yea, I don’t know what OTP is? LOL!
I totally had to google it. So many abbreviations. I feel old now.
Kelly (@KRod0519) says
Love Giovanni Ribisi…I think my favorite…or at least most heartwarming role has to be “The Other Sister.” Precious! This was fun…thanks for sharing. 🙂
He was good in that too. I loved him in Basic and The Gift but he really is great in them all. Thank you.
Racing Bananas says
I feel like I agree with so many of your answers! Also, never would have guessed you were 35 – you look younger 🙂
Soul sisters! 😉 Why thank you very much! I started really young with firming lotion. 😉
Melanie @ Ribbons and Rotor Blades says
Im 5’8 but always wished I was like 5’5 but I used to long to be 5’10 or taller. Haha finding pants is so hard!!!
And I’d have never guessed you were 35!!!
Haha! I never thought about the pants thing. Thank you. I will hopefully grow old gracefully. My Dad looks young for his age too.
