Getting to Know Me!

Hello hello friends!  Today I thought I would do a little getting to know me post, seeing as there a few new faces around these parts.  Which is fantastic!  I am so grateful to each and everyone of you who continue to read and comment on my little space of the internet.  Plus it's been forever since I did a post like this and stumbled upon these questions on Paula's post over at Thirteen Thoughts!


1. Are you named after someone?
According to my mother, I'm named after a favorite student of hers from back in the day.  And also the actress Kathleen Turner.  I think.  That could be inaccurate. lol

2. When was the last time you cried?
Last weekend.  My aunt re-discovered all these old home videos my grandparents (who have both passed on) took when we were little.  And by little I mean babies.  She was able to e-mail me one of the videos and I bawled for a good 25 minutes.  It was so heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time to watch them. Here's a snippet of one I posted on Instagram!

3. Do you have kids?
Not yet!

4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?
Yes I think I would.  I think I'm a fantastic friend and person a good portion of the time.  :)

5. Do you have a guilty pleasure?
I dunno if this would be considered a "guilty" pleasure but I eat peanut butter straight off a spoon and love every minute of it.  

6. Do you like handwriting?
Like my handwriting?  Yes!  Save for my signature.  I think my signature is kinda sloppy.  But according to my brother that's how it's supposed to be.  

7. What is your favorite cereal?
Cinnamon Toast Crunch. 
But I never buy it.  Lately I've been on a Honey Nut Cheerios kick.

8. What is the first thing you notice about people?
Their smile, height, and overall attitude.  

9. Do you have any pets?
The two lights of my life...Sadie and Brady.  They both love me but have very little love for each other.  Which I'm hoping will change one day soon! 

(I wish Brady had stayed this little forever....now he's huge and a terror sometimes.  Plus I don't think they'll ever do this again! lol)

10. Scary movies or happy endings?
Happy Endings for sure!  I can do without scary movies.  But happy endings give me all the warm fuzzies and are my absolute favorite.  

11. Favorite TV Show?
As if I could pick just one!  
The Tudors, One Tree Hill, House of Cards, Downton Abbey, Grey's Anatomy, How to Get Away With Murder,  

12. Summer or Winter?
Winter until Christmas is over and then Summer all the way.  If I'm honest I'm more of a Spring girl than anything else!  The weather is perfection and the flowers are all in bloom.

13. Hugs or Kisses?
Hugs because I haven't been kissed in far far too long.

14. What's the furthest you've been away from home?
ITALY!!!! Summer of 2015 will always be one of my all time favorites!


15. Do you have any special talents?
I can twist my right arm all the way around in a complete circle.  It's kinda gross to watch but still a talent! 

16. Where were you born?
New Mexico.  No not MEXICO....New Mexico.  Some people get confused when I say that.  

17. What are your hobbies?
Reading...all of the books, going to the movies, trying out new restaurants, and of course BLOGGING!!

18. What color are you eyes?
Blue! 

19. Favorite movie?
Again, as if I could pick just one.  Titanic, Shakespeare in Love, Sleeping Beauty, Step Brothers, anything with Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, and obviously anything with LEO!!!

20. What color is your car?
Gray

21. What did you want to be when you grew up?
For the longest time I wanted to be a pediatrician and for a hot second I wanted to be an FBI agent.

*********

Well there ya have it.  Now you know me just a little bit better!
Feel free to use the questions for your very own Getting to Know you post, they originally come from a tag.  

Have a great Wednesday! 

Linking up with Jenn and Jessi for What's Ha-"Pinning"!

I am popping over from Jessi's link-up and loved seeing that you had this getting-to-know me post up! It was perfect!! Your cats are adorable, and I have to say I am a big fan of Cinnamon Toast Crunch too. ;)

Jessi @ Jessi's Design said...

L-o-v-e this! I'm with you on Leo and peanut butter! haha

Katie @ A Beautiful Little Adventure.com said...

LEO!! I really hope he gets his win this year. That's so neat that you got old home videos...we don't have any from when I was that young, but it's still fun to watch them when I was middle school age (oh those awkward years). I too eat PB straight from the spoon (and nutella and cookie butter too)

Love these kinds of posts :) I think Italy is the furthest I've been from home as well! and reading is definitely a great hobby to have!

Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders said...

This is such a cute idea, and I think that I might steal it! I totally agree with you about preferring happy endings over scary movies because they give me such nightmares! And yes to all the movies and all the books! I can never get enough. And if we could have weather like this past weekend year round, I would be totally happy too! It was perfect.

I've been looking for a good survey for my blog & I think I found it! I love learning random facts like this about other bloggers. I totally do the same thing with peanut butter. And cookie butter from Trader Joes.
