I was tagged in this fun post by Kristin at A Simply Enchanted Life and with a little peer pressure decided, why not. It was a cute idea, even though I really didn’t learn anything new about her I thought it would be fun and perhaps interesting for my blog readers to get to know a little bit more about the me behind the screen.

HAIR LENGTH: Currently,mid-back
EYE COLOR:Hazel green/brown
BEST FEATURE: Random personality
BRACES: Never had ’em
PIERCINGS: Each earlobes (one each – I have freakishly small ears), previously have had upper ear (same spot twice but…well) and navel (previously)

REAL HOLIDAY: If you mean vacation in the European sense, Alaska in 1992 right before my senior year of high school. Spent some time in and around Anchorage and then flew out to a small island off of Kodiak to visit family
BEST FRIEND: I went to kindergarten and 1st grade in Springfield, before we moved, and Janie Raye lived on the corner and her grandparents across the street from me.
AWARD:Gaa, that’s a hard one when you get as old as I am. Possibly 5th grade Knowledge Bowl winner, including trophy!
SPORT: Softball. I played 6th grade and was/and remain horrible at it but it’s still fun. Being a leftie I should have an advantage right? If I actually had good depth perception and peripheral vision perhaps. Or even the ability to recognize the strike zone as a batter. The easiest way to get me out is to throw high, the higher the better because I’ll go for that before a ball in the strike zone. Every. Single. Time.

RESTAURANT: TGIFridays, China Pearl (local and sadly closed), Chipotle

BOOKS:Gone With the Wind (seriously, I own the movie but refuse to watch it because I don’t want to hate it…yes I’ve never seen the movie), Forever Amber, I Never Promised You a Rose Garden, Summer Sisters
SHOES:Flip Flops, I’d wear them year round but for like snow and cold. In the winter I love my ankle boots.
BOOK GENRES: Mystery, Christian, Amish, Sci-Fi, Young Adult, Middle Grade, Picture Books, Award Winners, Cereal boxes, almost anything but directions to put something together or a technical manual
