Thanks Melissa for sending this my way!
What is your favorite book or, if you prefer, who is your favorite writer?
My favorite book. Thats a hard one. I love to read, and have pretty eclectic taste. So I can’t name just one. But I do love romance novels and I love Nora Roberts and the Bride Quartet.
2. If money were no object, where would you take your next vacation?
I would go back to Hawaii. I went there in 2010 for 10 days and LOVED it there. Seriously. I would live there if it weren’t so far away and wasn’t so expensive.
I stayed in the hotel with the blue umbrellas and chairs in front of it! It was amazing!!
3. Whom do you most admire?
That’s a hard one too. I would have to say my mom. She has taught me to stand up and be my own person, and she is one of the strongest people I know. She doesn’t take crap from anyone and has made me and everyone in my family a better person because we know her.
4. Do you consider yourself a cat person or a dog person? Or both?
Total Dog person. Dogs rule! I’m super allegeric to cats! I also think that dogs think of you as part of the family or pack, whereas cats view you as the staff.
5. What is one of the best gifts you’ve ever received?
Mmm. I would have to say my Garmin that I got for my birthday in 2011. I didn’t think I wanted one, and didn’t think I would keep running after I ran my first half marathon. Good think my mom didn’t listen and bought it anyway! :)
6. If you could wake up tomorrow with one talent or ability, what would it be?
I would like to be able to read minds. I think we all waste so much time wondering what others are thinking, and I wish I could just know instead of worrying about it. I’ve always said that I wished my life were like a movie-then I could see the backstory and know what was happening in the other “scenes.” I know, I’m weird.
7. Are you still friends with any of your childhood friends?
Yes! I have been Best Friends with my friend Virginia since we were 5, and then when we were 8 we added Candace to the group. We are still BFF’s today—despite not living in the same cities or state. We don’t even talk everyday or week, but that kind of friendship you don’t have to, its just there, waiting to be picked up again when you need each other.
8. What non-physical quality do you like most about yourself?
I like to think that I’m a good listener. People tell me their problems all the time, and I like to try to help and listen.
9. Are you a vivid dreamer? Do you frequently remember your dreams?
Absolutely! I dream everynight and can remember most of my dreams. My mom is a nurse and she once told me that women tend to dream more and remember more of their dreams than men do. I certainly fall into this category.
10. What/who makes you laugh the hardest?
That would be my dad or BFF Virginia. They are always ‘On’ and can crack jokes whenever. I love that.
11. Why tumblr? How did you come to start blogging here?
To be honest, it all started because Dannon Greek yogurt changed their flavoring and I was trying to figure out why. I googled it, and discovered a blog called “The Librarian On The Run” I obsessively read it all, and read other’s posts that she reblogged. I decided to move my Blogger to tumblr so that I could stay more up to date. I started following people and gained some followers and the rest is history!
To be honest, I also started a blog because I wanted a safe place to talk about my running. My facebook friends didn’t care about it, and got annoyed when I talked about it. So this was a great outlet to channel my need into.
I’m going to tag some people with the exact same questions that Melissa asked me! (sorry, I’m lazy!)
