I saw this tag on a fellow blogger’s post a few weeks back and thought it might be fun to do it. Feel free to do it yourself, if you wish. There were some tough questions for me, but I was honest.
Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?
I honestly think it just depends if I forget to shut the closet door or not? I don’t have a preference.
Do you take the shampoos and conditioner bottles from hotel?
No. I use to work at a hotel and I know how cheap their shampoos and conditioners are. My hair is really thick and if I don’t use quality products, it becomes a huge rats nest.
Do you sleep with you sheets tucked in or out?
Tucked Out. I really have no interest in keeping my sheets tucked in. I toss and turn all night and the last thing I’d want is to become tangled up in my sheets.
Have you ever stolen a street sign before?
No. But when I was about eight, I did watch as a bunch of kids kicked over a stop sign. Looking back, I should have told them to stop. But they were turned in by a neighbor and got into a lot of trouble. I was just lucky I didn’t kick the sign.
Do you like to use post-it notes?
Only the electronic ones on my computer. I’ve never really understand the point to leave post-its all over your house.
Do you cut out coupon but then never use them?
When I use to coupon, this happened more than once. Sometimes you never know if you are going to need/want as many pieces as they require or you realize it’s just not a good deal.
Would you rather be attacked by a big bear or a swarm of bees?
Bear. You can play dead with a bear and maybe survive. A swarm of bees just reminds me of My Girl and how her best friend dies from dying.
Do you have freckles?
Yes, I have a few on my shoulders and few faint ones on the face.
Do you always smile for pictures?
Yes, but it’s a rare occasion when I will take a picture.
What is your biggest pet peeve?
People who constantly talk about my weight or how I look. I get it, I’m not a supermodel, but the last thing I need is for someone else to confirm what I already think about myself.
Do you ever count your steps when you walk?
Nope. That’s what a fitbit is for.
Have you ever peed in the woods?
Yeah. When you have to go, you have to go.
What about pooped in the woods?
Not that I remember, but I use to go hunting with my grandfather when I was little. It’s possible I did have to go at some point.
Do you ever dance even if there’s no music playing?
Yup. I love to dance and I don’t care what anyone thinks.
Do you chew your pens and pencils?
How many people have you slept with this week?
None. I’m a single mother and believe in putting more of my efforts into raising my son, as opposed to worrying about my own life.
What size is your bed?
What is your song of the week?
Locked Away by R. City featuring Adam Levine
Is it okay for guys to wear pink?
If they have the right coloring for it, yes.
Do you still watch cartoons?
I’m a single mom. Of course I still watch cartoons. It comes with the territory.
What’s your least favorite movie?
Least Favorite? Many of the action movies from the 90’s really bug me. I’m not a big fan of the genre.

I wouldn’t bury it. I would invest it.

My son. I kissed his forehead before I put him to bed.
Were you ever a boy/girl scout?

Would you ever strip or pose nude in a magazine?
Only because they would pay me a lot of money to keep my clothes back on.
When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper?
I wrote a letter to my eldest son, a few years ago. He was moving to Oklahoma to be with his father and I had sent some stationary for him and I to write back and forth. He never wrote…
Can you change the oil on a car?
I’m sure I could. But I hate getting my hands dirty, (with greasy and oily substances, I mean) so I never would.

Ever ran out of gas?
Not for a few years. Last time, I literally ran out 500 feet from the gas station.

Are you lazy?
I can be lazy at home. But at work, I’m not.

Are you afraid of heights?
Yes. I have to go up in a machine at work and carry down heavy pieces/boxes from the racks. It freaks me out every time and I’ve had some really close calls with nearly dropping stop. Last week, I even dropped a 60 lbs box on my foot.
Do you sing in the car?
Yes. My son likes to join in as well.
Do you sing in the shower?

Yes. I was in the military.
Last time you got a portrait taken by a photographer?
When I went home to visit my son during my first year in the military. It was an awful picture of me, but a great picture of him.
Do you think musicals are cheesy?
Some can be. But I still love a lot of them.

No… Christmas for me is… sad. I wish I could give my son a more traditional holiday experience. But with no family here and few to no friends in my life, it’s always a quiet affair.
Ever eat a pierogi?
Favorite type of fruit pie?
Depends on my mood: Cherry or Apple
Occupations you wanted to be when you were a kid?
