The 20 Question Game

It's been a while since I've done a get to know you post so when I saw this 20 question game on Meet the Sullivans I thought it would be a fun! 

1. Favorite food:
Hmmm...this is a tough one! Growing up it was probably Italian...but after having kids my tastes changed...I'm totally a cheeseburger, fries, and milkshake girl now! Thank goodness we don't have In N' Out in Michigan because I would be in major trouble. We do have Five Guys...and it's almost comical how many times I tell my husband that's what I want for dinner. Luckily he's looking out for my better interests and usually tells me no! The list of food I don't like is way longer than the list of things I do like!

2. Flip flops or high heels:
Flip flops all the way. I'm kind of a klutz, so heels are not my friend. Although I can rock a cute wedge. 

3. Favorite places to shop for yourself:
Pretty much all of my clothes come from Nordstrom, Gap, Old Navy, and of course everybody's favorite: Target.

4. Standard Coffee order:
I don't drink coffee! I think it's kind of gross. I know what you're thinking...a mom blogger who doesn't like coffee??? Shocker. If you make me go to Starbucks I will buy some kind of yummy iced tea. Or hot chocolate. 

5. Road trip must have snack:
Gummy bears, string cheese, pretzels, and a huge water bottle. I drink water like it's my JOB, so water is a must-have!

6. DIY or hire it out?
Kind of 50/50 on this one. My mom is the best DIYer ever and is always up for a we do a lot of stuff with her. But major things we hire out for sure. 

7. Top 5 TV shows:
Right now I'm basically only watching Big Brother, Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, Fixer Upper, Bachelor in Paradise/The Bachelor (only because of Pinterest Told Me To's recaps...I look forward to reading them more than I do actually watching the show!). And I'm embarrassed to admit this, but my mom got me hooked on Don't Be Tardy. Once it's fall my favorites are: Nashville, How to Get Away with Murder, The Middle, Pretty Little Liars, and I just can't quit Grey's Anatomy. 

8. Favorite Book: 
I'm stealing Colleen's answer....The Help.

9. Favorite Form of Exercising:
What exercising? I need to get back in to a groove...but my favorite thing is walking. I could walk all day. 

10. How tall are you?

11. Do you try something new at restaurants or stick to your favorites?
I'm a creature of habit and stick to my favorites. 

12. One make up item you can't live without:

13. What's on your nightstand?
A framed picture from our wedding, alarm clock, chap stick, journal, water bottle, and baby monitor.

14. What's one thing motherhood has taught you?
Only one thing? That's tough. I guess if I could just pick one thing it would be that time is precious. Babies grow so blink and they are a toddler demanding popcorn for breakfast. I say this all the time but it's true that the days are long but the years are short.

15. Music that reminds you of high school:
Anything Backstreet Boys or N'Sync. Or Celine Dion! And the theme song to Dawson's Creek.

16. If you could live anywhere in the world besides your current city where would you live?
I think I would love living in Vail Colorado....or Seattle Washington. Obviously, I'm not a beach girl, ha!

17. Tell us something about you we might not know:
I'm terrified of E.T. My husband knows this and likes to use it to torture me. I will quickly hide my face if I see him on TV.  Another thing that scares me is the old school version of Planet of the Apes. I'll probably have a nightmare tonight just thinking about it!

18. Websites you read/browse (besides blogs):
Besides blogs? I basically only have time for blogs these days! Oh, and Facebook. I don't even bother with Pinterest anymore because it's too overwhelming.

19. Morning person or Night owl?
Morning person for sure! My husband and I are opposites on this. I am way more productive in the morning...and I've never been one to stay up late. 

20. Favorite Breakfast meal:
I used to hate breakfast food...and now it's my favorite! In fact, maybe I should change my answer to question #1. A local join makes this amazing egg scramble with potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, onion, mushroom, and bacon. It's the best.

  1. I don't drink coffee either! You will never see a selfie with a Starbucks cup from me, lol:) And as much as I used to love rocking stilettos in an office every day, those cute little heels will most likely never see the light of day again. They're just not made for chasing two year olds and taking care of infants. But so with you on the wedges, mama. I love me some wedges:) Loved reading a bit more about you today, sweet friend! Hope you and your family had a great weekend!

  2. Lol @ pinterest being too overwhelming! Ha! Totally true :) Jelly that you're a morning person - I so wish I was! I'm a faux morning person - you know, a night owl who wakes up early and pretends it's what I wanted to do ;) Also, I'm excited for "You Think You Got Away With Murder" to come back on, too! Forgot all about it until I saw you mention it.

  3. I agree with you on so many of these! Grey's Anatomy... yes! I just can't quit it either. It was great, then ehh, then it got better, then I lost interest, and then Derek died! And now I'm hooked again. I also LOVE Fixer Upper and can't wait for the next season! As well as How to Get Away with Murder. I sound like I have all this time to watch tv when in reality I don't and usually catch up on Netflix :) We're currently binge watching NCIS!
    You also hit all my favorite stores as well as my favorite burger place... in n out! YUM! Sadly though I live too close and it's a dangerous problem!

  4. Fun post lady! I loved learning more about you! DCC making the team is one of my favorite shows! Love watching the big hair and glittery costumes.

  5. You don't drink coffee! That is definitely something I did not know about you. I am always surprised when I hear someone say they don't like it. So glad you wrote this! I love reading your answers! xoxo

  6. Did you in Dawson's Creek reruns are playing on the ABC Family channel?! Also Sesttle is an awesome place to live; you would love it!

  7. E.T. scares me, too, and has since I was a little girl! Ugh, I hate him! ;)

  8. I love posts like this! Also, I totally didn't realize that you're 5'8''...I don't know why but for some reason I thought you were shorter :)

  9. I love posts where you get to know the writer more! Yes to all those shows. I am binge watching Fixer Upper right now and wish Joanna and Chip would just come and do my house up for me! It could do with a renovation ha. I love Fall shows, Pretty Little Liars and Murder in the First yes! What did you think of the A reveal?
    I hate coffee too finally I have found someone who agrees with me!

  10. Fist bump- I swear Ive never met another mom who doesnt like coffee but LOVES water! I have an irrational fear of being dehydrated so I tote a water bottle around everywhere I go lol.

  11. I didn't know you like Pretty Little Liars. None of my friends watch, but I started it on Netflix last winter and was hooked immediately. My husband even loves it. Also, the Middle is my favorite ever.

  12. We have SOOO much in common! I am SOOO with you on the ET thing! Also my dad used to sing the Oompa Loompa song when we wouldn't clean our room, so Charlie and the chocolate factory is also a bit freaky to me!

  13. OK, you can credit you mother with you not drinking coffee and enjoying walking but don't blame your watching Don't Be Tardy on me!!!

  14. i did a 20 q's today too! also...i can't believe you're 5'8"! i pictured you shorter. is that weird? your man must be suuuuper tall. lastly...i think your mom and i would get along. i just started watching don't be tardy. (hangs head in shame.)

  16. Hahah I loved this!!! Especially your 3, 7, & 12. I love my mascara and live at Target! I'm also the only one of my friends who watches Bachelor In Paradise..can we be friends?? Haha!

  17. I am not a coffee drinker either! I do like the smell of it though. Strange, I know. I'm also a huge fan of the Gap. I was introduced to their awesomeness during my last pregnancy. They have amazing maternity clothes. And now, most things I wear to work are Gap. I'm a creature of habit as well. But since baby #2, I'm trying to drop the lbs and that has forced me to step outside my usual burger and fries box. Anyhoo, glad to have found your blog! I'll be following!


  18. I'm terrified of E.T. too! People think I'm crazy but I don't think I've ever watched the movie all the way through because he is so so creepy!
