Getting to Know Your Blogger

I was tagged in a post by Alisha at The Bohemian Housewife WAYYYYYY back forever ago, to do this ‘getting to know your blogger’ survey.  I started it and just recently got the chance to finish.  So I figured, what better way to start off the new year than a quick survey!?  And by quick, I actually mean quite long….

  1. What is your Nickname:  Neeters
  2. Favorite Dessert: Cinnamon Rolls, please.
  3. Do you have any pets? What are they?  Three Cats; Jasper, Jinx and Joe, and one Fish: Ezekiel
  4. Book you’re currently reading? The Piper’s Price, Audrey Greathouse
  5. Best book you’ve read in the past 30 days?  I haven’t read much in the last 30 days.  Paper Crown I guess.
  6. What is your Song of the Week?  Heathens – Twenty-One Pilots
  7. When was the last time you cried?  I don’t know..but I guarantee it was a video I just watched on Facebook.
  8. What are the three closest things to you?  Phone, Nail File, Coffee Cup
  9. What time do you normally wake up?  6:15 – I’m a full time working mom, have to get those kids up, ready for school and out the door by 7:20.
  10. What is the last text you sent?  Dangerous question, it could be anything if I’m texting my husband.  But you’re in luck, not TMI:  “What kind of soup were we going to make?”
  11. If you could have any book character as your BFF, who would it be?  Tessa Gray from The Infernal Devices.
  12. Sushi or Pasta?  Sushi from Fusion because their vegan sushi is awesome! J
  13. Have you ever gone skinny dipping?  I’m going to be honest and say that I do not have near enough confidence to do something like that.
  14. What color is your shirt?  Black and white stripped
  15. When do you blog? Lately, I don’t.  I’m at work 9 hours a day, and when I’m at home my husband or kids are on the computer – hubby works full time and is in college full time as well, but since we’re looking at a new year, I’m trying to make some goals that will have me blogging more frequently.
  16. How many states have you been to?  Gosh, I don’t know.  Like visited, or driven through.  I’m going to go with visited and guess 10.
  17. How many Countries have you been to?  4 if you include USA.  I’ve been on a couple cruises, that helped me out with this one some!
  18. What is your comfort food?  Whatever it is, it must include bread.
  19. Favorite thing that is blue?  Well, that is my favorite color, so that’s a hard call, but I’m going to go with the ocean.  I’ve been on two cruises, and nothing is as beautiful and changing as the blue ocean.
  20. Favorite Holiday Candy?  Why Holiday?  That’s pretty specific.  Chocolate is good.  Chocolate covered pretzels..or um…OREOS! Yum!
  21. Last movie you watched?  Doctor Strange
  22. If you could have any animal as a pet, what would you pick?  A cat.  I’m pretty happy.

Say the first book that comes to your mind:

  1. Funny: My Lady Jane
  2. Sad: I don’t read many sad books on purpose.  The Time Traveler’s Wife – Audrey
  3. Epic: Six of Crows
  4. Scary: I don’t do scary.
  5. Long: The last book of The Cinder Chronicles..I didn’t think it was ever going to end.
  1. What is your favorite holiday?  Thanksgiving or 4th of July.  Both because it’s time with family with no added pressure.
  2. Name something you’ve always wanted to do.  Travel to Paris.  I took French in High School, and while I was there the class took at least 2 trips to France, but I wasn’t able to afford to go either of the years.  Now I just…want to go.
  3. Do you have any tattoos?  I just got one this year…and that is the only reason it’s not listed above.
  4. What is your strange habit?  What makes you think I have any?  My habits are pretty normal.  I used to bite my nails all the time, but then I discovered Jamberry Wraps…problem solved (finally…seriously I’ve been biting my nails since basically childbirth).
  5. How many siblings do you have?  One whole brother, one half sister, 5 sister-in-laws (counting both sides) and 2 brother-in-laws.
  6. Pizza or Tacos?  Pizza.  For sure.
  7. Sad Endings or Happily Ever After?  Always Happily Ever After for me.
  8. What is the last thing you drank?  You can always rest assured, it’s either water, coffee, or tea.  I don’t drink much else.
  9. Would you rather be a mermaid or space traveler?  Mermaid.  I think that what I’d find in the ocean would be prettier than the vast area of space.
  10. Doctor Who or The Walking Dead?
  11. Do you dance in the car?  Yes.  And I’m the world’s best karaokier…in the car.
  12. Favorite subject in school?  Band.  All my friends were there.
  13. What is the weirdest thing you own?  Who came up with these questions? I don’t know.  I’m about as normal as normal gets.
  14. What is on the walls of the room you are in?  Family pictures, and paintings that either I or my daughter painted in those paint classes that are popular now.
  15. Have you ever won a big giveaway?  A big one, no?  I rarely win anything, my mom apparently kept all the luck she was supposed to pass to me.  She wins things all the time.  A big screen tv, a wide variety of concert tickets, money.  She’s got a knack for winning.
  16. If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation where would you go?  Ha!  Paris, France.
  17. What is your biggest pet peeve?  When people use the word ‘irregardless.’
  18. What movies could you watch over and over and still love?  I’m a re-watcher, much like I’m a re-reader.  My family watches Harry Potter movies every year (we’re in the middle of a re-watch now), Pride and Prejudice (with Kiera Knightly), Ferris Bueller, 27 Dresses…there are for sure many, many more.
  19. Were you ever a boy/girl scout?  For a short amount of time.
  20. Ever ran out of gas?  Yes. A few times in 2016 alone…my gas gauge was broken.
  21. Where would you want to retire to?  Anywhere warm.  And if they had normal size bugs also – that would be a bonus.
  22. Are you a morning person or a night owl?  I used to be a night owl, but growing up has changed that.  I’m a semi-morning person.  I don’t really want to get up, but once I’m up I tend to wake up pretty easily.
  23. What is most important in life?  I’m going to go with Family on this one.  And love.  Not receiving as much as giving.
  24. ….I’m supposed to add one, but this survey is already really long.
