Get to Know Me! And You Too!

Hey everyone! Happy Labor Day! I'm trying this new thing where I write my posts in advance so that when my week gets crazy, this blog at least gets SOME attention. The problem with that is that I have to keep track of what I want to write about, and I am forgetful sometimes. I'll get on track hopefully! I mean, I bought a planner and I actually wrote in it this time, so that's a good sign, right?


Anyway, Kaila from What Kaila Says nominated me for the Liebster Award, which was so nice of her! I figure since I have a few new people hanging around, I'll answer the questions and then you can get to know me a little better. Also, I'm nominating all of you for the award as well, because it's too hard to choose from so many greats! I want to get to know you, so if you answer the questions, post a link in the comments and I'll be sure to read it!

Ok, here we go.

1. What is your favorite holiday? My favorite holiday is Christmas. Which I know is super cliche, but honestly, nothing beats it in my mind. In my family, Christmas starts right after Thanksgiving ends, and we celebrate the whole month. It's not even about the gifts, you guys, it's the whole spirit of the thing! Like, I can't even write any more about it right now because I'm going to start crying. It's this weird thing I have that when I hear about Christmas or Santa (especially Santa... which is super weird, I know) I burst into tears! So... moving on from that.

2. If you could guest star on any tv show which would it be?
I would love to be a guest on The Mindy Project. Mindy Kaling is my soul sister. (Everyone thinks that, right?)


3. Lions, Tigers, or Bears? (Oh my!) I think I would choose a lion. I like the Lion King. Lions seem nicer than tigers. Bears are just frightening.

4. What is your favorite blog post you’ve ever written? I'm obsessed with my love story, so all of those posts. Besides that there was this one about a hilarious day at school in the fourth grade.

5. Pick a destination: Rome or Disney world? I would totally pick Rome. 100%. I've been to parts of Europe, and the history of that side of the world is overwhelmingly awesome to me.

6. Pick a Naked Palette: 1, 2, 3 or basics? I know this may take away my real woman card, but I have never tried a Naked Palette. I have wanted to, but I haven't been able to justify the purchase? Someone get it for me for my birthday? I guess I would start with 1?

7. What do you like to do when you need a pick-me-up? Watch Grey's Anatomy and cuddle with my husband. OR go to Zupa's with my mom. Zupa's is our place.

8. Tell me about your dream wedding (and don’t act like you don’t have it all planned down to the font on your place cards) (I’m not the only one, right?) My dream wedding was my real wedding! You can see pictures of the reception here and outside the temple here. My vision came together at Harmon's Grocery store while eating Chinese food with my mom and sisters. I knew I wanted it in a big barn. I didn't want to have specific colors, so I wanted all the decor to be neutral colors, and then I had flowers EVERYWHERE in EVERY color. We grew the flowers ourselves, and had them in antique vases and barrels all over. I wanted a chalkboard design to stand in front of. My original idea was to serve artisan breads with different flavors of butter and jam, but we decided that would be too messy, and opted for cookies and milk. I wanted lights everywhere, so we had two gorgeous chandeliers hung up, and extra lights hung in the barn as well... It was dreamy you guys. One lady even said, "I've seen it on pinterest, but I've never seen it in real life!" Best. Day. Ever.


 
9. Favorite Christmas movie? Ahhh... Christmas again!?!? My favorite classic movie by far is A White Christmas. But I also can't let the season go by without watching A Christmas Story and Elf.

10. What is your favorite social media website? Depends on the day! I'm an instagram person usually, it appeals to my artsy side. I like Twitter on sarcastic days, and facebook for entertainment. Because the things humans post on facebook really entertain me.

11. What is your most memorable birthday?
16. I got the most presents that year. Also 18 because I threw a party with my friend Rachel and random people came to it, so I felt cool.

Alright people! Your turn! Here are your questions:

1. Favorite style of music? Like, what radio do you turn to on Spotify or Pandora?
2. What is your dream job?
3. Where would you love to live?
4. Favorite memory from your childhood?
5. What do you spend the most money on?
6. Favorite guilty pleasure TV show?
7. If you could only eat one thing for a week, what would it be?
8. What talent do you wish you had?
9. What is your pet peeve when it comes to social media?
10. What kinds of things make you want to "follow" someone?
11. Do you believe in dinosaurs?

Don't forget to leave me a link! I want to hear all about you! In the creepiest way possible... ha ha jk.
