Do you cry often during movies? Only if they're sad movies. And only if I'm watching them alone. Sometimes with Ryan if we're watching it at home, but not so much in the theater. Oh, but this one time my sisters and I saw Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants in the theater and we were all bawling by the end...and then looking at each other and laughing because we're crying at a stupid movie.
What is your biggest pet peeve? this is really weird, but I hate it when cupboard doors are left open and also when one (or more) of the shower hooks falls off the rod and *someone* doesn't put it back on. drives me bonkers.
Favorite color: Pink
Favorite foods: My Riscuits and cinnamon rolls, Aunt Lorie's grilled chicken and Alfredo sauce (oh, another pet peeve is canned Alfredo sauce. It's not that hard to make. ew!)
Favorite beverage: LOVE Diet Coke and Diet Dr. Pepper and Diet Pepsi Max.
Favorite cold cereal: I haven't really had one I didn't like. besides puffed rice. that stuff is inhumane.
Favorite smells: Ryan's armpits. He wears awesome smelling deodorant.
Favorite time of day: 5pm - quitting time.
Favorite make-up products? I wasn't a believer of liquid foundation until I used my Clinique foundation. Also, can't live without eyeliner. My fave to use is a cheapo bonne bell black pencil, but I haven't been able to find it the last 3 times I've needed some so I'm guessing it's been discontinued. I don't know which one I use now.
What is your favorite article of clothing? my gap yoga pants that I immediately toss on when I get home from work. If i don't put those on I just strip down and walk around in my skivvies. So if my car is here and you for some reason come over and i don't answer right away, it's because I'm running my arse to the bedroom to put some sort of clothing on.
Favorite clothing brand? don't have one as of now.
How many pillows do you sleep with? start the night with 2 but wake up with 1.
Do you play an instrument? nope.
Have you ever been skinny dipping? yup
Did you do any sports in high school? nope. in fact, I hated high school. Let's not talk about it.
What was the last movie you saw in the theater? 27 Dresses. I went on a Monday night by myself thinking it wouldn't be that crowded but the theater was packed. I'd started watching the movie online (someone had handycammed it and it was terrible) and had to know what happened so I went to see it. I also saw Juno (I think I've seen it 5 times now) but that wasn't in the theater...it's on my iPod (this is one doodle that can't be undid, Homeskillet).
What is your dream vacation? Um, dunno. We love watching Cash and Treasures together, so I think it would be awesome to go on a treasure hunting vacation. We're hoping to get to Europe as soon as Ryan gets his PhD - he wants to visit Portugal again and I want to go to Spain.
What was your first impression of your spouse? So funny story. He was in my ward a good year before we even talked. But I wasn't all that into going to church with my roommates (they were clinically crazy) and I was totally apostate then and I remember seeing Ryan with this one girl and thinking, I bet he's a cool guy. He looks smart and like he has a lot of fun stories. AND I totally thought he was 26 (I was 22/23 when I thought this). Little did I know he was only 22/23 also AND I'm 6 wks older than him.
If you were an animal what would you be? elephant. they have good memories.
What is your favorite "me-time" activity? i have too much me time, i think. I love finishing projects and starting new ones, shopping, sleeping, baking.
Favorite tv shows? Lost, Bones, Notes from the Underbelly, Psych (this show is so so funny), Flight of the Conchords
Favorite candy/treat? I love Reisens, chocolate chip cookies, brownie sundaes...notice the trend?
Favorite flower? gerbera daisies and cherry blossoms
Favorite restaurant? Love Mimi's cafe, but don't get there too often because my husband isn't a fan. Okay, he downright hates it. We eat at SmokeHouse ALL the time and at Jason's Deli a lot recently.
What is your dream car? not sure. I love the look of the Chrysler 300 - they look gangster. want one. I actually think I want a hybrid, but I love the car I have now, I just wish it had more power. Oh, ultimately my dream car will be any car that's PAID OFF.
What is one of your weaknesses? anything sweet. sleeping in. I have all the good intentions of getting up early to workout but the temptation to hit snooze until i don't have enough time has won out this past week.
What do you fix for dinner when there's nothing to fix? Since it's usually just me for dinner and if I don't want to cook anything, I totally have cold cereal and popcorn. Sometimes together.
If you could live in a different decade/era which one would it be? the one where being overweight was a good thing.
What is the emotion you feel the most? silliness.
Do you consider yourself outgoing? um, only when I'm in the mood.
What is something you are constantly working on? housekeeping & weight. Ryan's a better housekeeper than I am.
Any hidden talents? They shall remain hidden
What is a word or phrase you overuse? For the LOVE
What did you do last night? watched LOST, went to sleep at 9:30 - it was fabulous.
Any new & exciting news to share? Ryan thinks he might have gotten accepted into Indiana! wahoo! It's on the list now.
How many years at your current job? 2 as of yesterday
What are you afraid of? Losing Ryan or not being able to have children
What is one thing you hope to accomplish this year? I really really want to get skinny and pregnant. Contradictory statements, I know, but I think if I lose weight first, the second will happen.
The best piece of advice you've recently heard? Stop stressing so much. AND ...okay, I thought I had another one but now I can't think of it.
