Friend Makin' Mondays ~ Another Q & A

It's Monday and time for Friend Makin' Mondays {hosted by Kasey at All That Is Good} once again! Today we're doing a little Q & A...

You wouldn't be caught dead where?: On a ski slope. I’ve never been skiing, but the thought of going downhill fast and having little control over my ability to stop terrifies me! {Yes, Nathan, I’ll go up to the mountain with you, but you can bet I’ll be spending my time in the lodge by the fire!}

Do you have any hidden talents?: I can pick up things with my toes.

Name two things you consider yourself to be very good at: Crocheting {I won Grand Champion the first year I entered something in the fair} and math

Name two things you consider yourself to be very bad at: Pretending to be in a good mood when I’m in a foul one and cooking.

Have you ever won a trophy?: Not for anything sports~related! I think I recall getting a trophy for something, but I sure can’t remember what it was for…

Name one thing not many people know about you: This is a tricky one… I’m an open book {especially after the 100 facts about me post I did last week!}. I think the few little things I’ve kept secret are things that should stay secret. :o)

Name your earliest memory: I was in my crib in my parents’ bedroom {relatives were visiting so they’d moved the crib out of my room} and I’d pinched my finger in the bars of the crib somehow. I was crying because it hurt, but the adults were talking really loud and no one heard me. {My mom is absolutely horrified that this is my first memory! I think we figure I was around 18 months old based on when my parents remember these relatives were in town.}

What was your favorite musical group in jr. high?: Collective Soul ~ are they still around?

What was something the worst roommate you ever had did?: I went home for the weekend my freshman year, and when I returned, the quilt I had spent hours and hours making the summer before had lost color in a bunch of spots. I never got confirmation on what she’d done, but my best guess is that something spilled on it and she threw it in the horrible washer and dryer in our dorm, which stripped the color out of some of the fabric {which, by the way, was not cheap fabric!}.

When you were a kid what did you want to be when you grew up?: In kindergarten, I wanted to be a police chief. Later on, I wanted to be a veterinarian.

What was your worst dating experience?: I think the four years I wasted with a lying, cheating cowboy top my list of worst dating experiences… Cowboys may be appealing in their cowboy hats and Wranglers, but they’ll break your heart as many times as you’ll let them!

If you were about to die, what would your last meal be?: Chicken and white sauce over rice. Or steak. Or my mom’s spaghetti. Or Nate’s mom’s mayonnaise chicken and macaroni. So hard to decide!

Who is the most important person in you life?: Nathan

If your house was on fire, what 3 things would you grab on your way out?: Nate {if he was unable to get out on his own}, my external hard drive that holds all my pictures and my entire music and audiobook collection, and Daisy {assuming this fire takes place in four weeks and five days, and she’s come home to live with us!}

Have a wonderful Monday!

I can pick things up with my toes too. That really comes in handy when I'm carrying around the baby!

Tina said...

WOW....picking things up with your toes. I'm impressed.

Cute blog!

Vivienne said...

My husband not only picked up a marble with his toes, but carried it with his toes to the boys' rooms to return it!

You're cracking me up with the Cowboy stuff!

Lins said...

Oh, your poor quilt! Seriously folks, don't they realize just how long it takes to make a quilt!? :)

Happy FMM!

J.J. said...

I love to ski!!!!! So I will ski for you!

I remember my Mom teaching me to crochet. I can;t make anything fabulous...just a blanket or two. My 6 year old's favorite thing is a "Christmas slee slee" that I made him just before he turned one. So I guess that is good enough. :0

Have a great Monday!

Great list. I can agree with a lot of it. I am also a person who can' hide their feelings. Thanks for stopping by my blog and have a blessed Monday!
