Friend Makin’ Monday

I recently started following this blog… she’s the sister of one of Anthony’s best friends.  And today {Monday}, she did a fun little thing that I want to try called Friend Makin’ Monday.  You answer the questions on this other blog and then leave your link in the comments.  So, here goes.  Mind you, I realize that because I am writing this LATE on Monday, you probably won’t be reading this until Tuesday.  We’ll just have to deal with it.  Call it ‘Friend Makin’ Tuesday’ if ya wanna.

Anthony played along because I asked him the questions as we went along and typed them.  He was so engrossed in his football game that he didn’t even notice until question 14.  His answers are in RED!

FMM Questions

1. What are your talents?

Actually, I’m pretty sure that I haven’t found mine yet.  Remember those lines in heaven that I stood in {or failed to stand in}?


2. What is your best habit?

Best habit?  That’s kind of a funny question.  I’ve got lots of strange habits.  I don’t know about any best habits…

OH!  I know… flossing my teeth!  I love to floss.

My eating habits.  

3. If you had to be stuck with someone in an elevator for 8 hours, who would you want it to be?

Anthony.  He could keep me calm. 

On second thought, the thought of him STUCK in an elevator makes me nervous.  I think it would just irritate him to no end.  He’d probably end up banging on things, breaking things, saying naughty things… I don’t think it would be pretty. 

Let me take another stab at it.  Maybe myself.  Can I be alone?  No, I’m too much of a chicken for that.  I’d cry. 

I just don’t know.  Next…

Can I say you? {as in Brooke}

4. Share one odd fact about you that we’d never know to ask.

Well, I’ve already shared so much about myself here and here.  Didn’t I name all of my quirks?  There must be another…

Ok, I have to wear a night guard when I sleep because I have bruxism.  It’s a condition most often caused by stress that makes me clench and grind my teeth at night.  It has also caused damage to my gums from grinding my teeth so hard.  The gums are receding.  Don’t look too closely, k? ;)  I’m a little self-conscious about it. 

I have an outtie belly button. 

5. What’s your latest project (work, home, whatever you care to share?)

This question must be referring to the projects that I should be working on.  Am I currently working on anything?  Homeschool schedules, coming up with a chore system that actually works, moving the girls downstairs, figuring out how to pay all the bills {does that count as a project?}

Training for a marathon.

6. If you could change one thing about how you look, what would it be?

Where do I begin?  Stretch marks, saggy you-know-whats, new wrinkles forming, receding gums, flabby stomach, spider veins, crooked teeth, HUGE pores on my face… so much to choose from. 

I think right now, I would choose to change the receding gums.

I wish there wasn’t as much fat on my stomach.  And now, I, Brooke, have to tell you that he’s whining about NOTHING!  The fat is practically gone… Pssshh!  Whatever!

7. What do you do in your spare time?

read, blog, Pinterest {need an invite?  Let me know}, homeschool stuff, cooking, and I would like to start crafting more.


8. What is your biggest pet peeve?

Rude people!!

Ignorant people.

9. Why do you blog?

I like to keep a family record to let future generations know what I wish I knew about some of my ancestors.  They’ll know my ‘voice’ and that makes me happy.  They’ll get a sense of who I was, what I enjoyed, my favorite recipes, funny stories, not so funny stories, etc. 

I don’t blog.

10. Are you tidy or messy?

Messy… I can’t deny it.  But I’m working on it.  I’ve got some things to share in a later post so stay tuned.

Tidy… what else?

11. What’s the last song that played on your iPod?

Well, if I actually owned an iPod, I might be able to answer this question.  No doubt it probably would have been a country song.

**pulled a face, then said** I don’t know. 

12. Do you cook?

Yes, I do.  And I quite enjoy it, thank you.  Although, I really need to get batter about menu planning.  I’m kind a mess when it comes to that stuff.

Very rarely. 

13. Do you like sports?

Depends ….  I like to watch NBA Basketball, certain college football teams {go UTES!}, hockey {if I’m there to watch it live… TV stinks}, and baseball {also live}.  I hate playing all of the above. 

I like to play volleyball.  Not good at it but I like to play.

What kind of question is that? 

14. How often do you read and/or watch the news?

Once a week, maybe.

I don’t know.  Once or twice a week.  Three times a week?  I don’t know. 

What is this for?  And I am laughing so hard right now. 

15. Did you stick to your new Year’s resolution this year?

What were they again?  I guess that’s a no.

Some of ‘em. 

16. What are you looking forward to most in the remainder of 2011?

All the upcoming holidays.  LOVE fall and winter holidays.

A great football season!

17. Shoes, sunglasses or handbags?

I’ve never really been in a position to get into any fashion stuff.  I’m not really a very materialistic person.  But I’ll take ANY if you give ‘em to me.  ;)

This question is not applicable to me.

18. How do you feel about sleeping on satin sheets?

Never tried satin sheets.  I think I would slip out of bed.  Any of you experienced in this area?


19. Do you sing in the shower?

Ummm, no!


20. Describe yourself in one word.

Scaredy-cat …. {if I hyphenate, it’s still one word, right?}



Now it’s your turn!  Let’s get to know each other.

I laughed out loud a few times. Funny post! In addition to the saggy you-know-whats...Anthony's answers cracked me up. Just about every guy I know would have answers like that.
I'll have to check out the blog where you got this idea. It looks like fun!
P.S. I also have bruxism, but my teeth/jaw is more affected than my gums.

How fun is that! Not sure I am brave enough to do a Q&A but still, very cool! New GFC and pinterest (oh I love pinterest) follower from Wild Wednesday.
