13 Random Facts

Pinkflipflops did this over on her blog earlier this week, so I thought I'd play along!

1. ONE OF YOUR SCARS, HOW DID YOU GET IT? I have scar on my forehead. When I was little, maybe 3 or 4, my sister was turning in circle, with a pillow in her outstretched hand. I stood up and was catapulted into the tv. You can't really tell it's a scar - just kind of looks like a forehead crease or something, but I wore bangs for years to cover it up since I thought it was so noticeable!!

2. WHAT IS ON THE WALLS IN YOUR ROOM? Not much. My favorite thing is a framed e.e. cummings poem. I have my eye on some prints on Etsy that I'd love to hang above my bed...

3. DO YOU SNORE, GRIND YOUR TEETH, OR TALK IN YOUR SLEEP? Not that I know of!

4. WHAT TYPE OF MUSIC DO YOU LISTEN TO? A little bit of everything, but I prefer acoustic, sing/songwriter type of music.

5. DO YOU GET SCARED IN THE DARK? Nope.

6. COFFEE OR ENERGY DRINK? Coffee with a little french vanilla creamer.

7. FAVORITE QUOTE? My favorite quote is actually a bible verse. It's something my Grandma sent to me in an email after Ryan and I broke up. (Yep, my grandma emails me! How cool is that!!) It gave me hope and I still go back and read it when it feels like things are bleak:

"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." (Jeremiah 29:11)

8. FAVORITE PLACE? sitting on the end of the dock at my parents' cabin on a beautiful, hot, sunny day.

9. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING? I hate it. My mom says I never learned to properly hold a pencil and that is why my handwriting is so poor.

10. MASHED POTATOES OR MACARONI AND CHEESE? Easy. Mashed Potatoes. I could eat them every day.

11. REPUBLICAN OR DEMOCRAT? Republican

12. KISSES OR HUGS? Both

13. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING? Ice House by Minette Walters.

OK - your turn to play along!!

Thank you so much for the arm ideas! I think I may just do all of them since my wedding is almost a year away and I have no idea what dress I am wearing anyway :)
Although I do have to wear a strapless in someone else's wedding in 2 weeks, so I better get on those exercises!

The dentist always gives me trouble for grinding my teeth when I sleep :-S

That's a beautiful passage that your grandma emailed you! Also, very cool that she emails you!!

I never held my pencil correctly either. Pencil grips are the worst ideas ever. I can offically hold my pencil correctly, but it does not feel comfortable. Thank god for typiing!
