Just for Fun


Today I have a just for funsies blog post.  It's different than my normal posts, but there isn't really any formula to my blogging anyway- so here you go!

Question 1: How tall are you?

5'5"

Question 2: Do you have a hidden talent? If so, what?

Not really...I sing some, but that's not all that hidden.

Question 3: What’s your biggest blog-related pet peeve?

When a blog is completely covered in ads and I'm trying to read it on my phone and end up going to another page or can't scroll because of pop-ups.  Even if it was an article someone recommended I read, if that happens... I usually stop reading. :-/

Question 4: What’s your biggest non-blog related pet peeve?

Empty toilet paper rolls that haven't been replaced but have the new toilet paper within reach or sitting on top.  Seriously, you are sitting there anyway if you needed toilet paper, how hard is it to change out the roll?

Question 5: What’s your favorite song?

Hmm... I don't know if I could ever pick just one... but there is one that has stood the test of time in that I haven't gotten tired of listening to it since I first heard it in college: "Video" by India Arie

Question 6: What’s your favorite Etsy shop that isn’t yours?

I don't have one myself...and I don't spend a whole lot of time on Etsy actually, but I did order this necklace in grey from Happy Little Lovelies and loved it!  

And recently my husband has discovered a shop called 1689 Beard that sales beard oils and beard balm to keep his beard nice and healthy.

Question 7: What’s your favorite way to spend your free time when you’re alone?

I'm a mom of a toddler-when am I ever alone? haha...  I am a HUGE fan of naps. For him and for me! ;-)  I also started watching "Once Upon a Time" on Netflix last year, but have since caught up with the show that is now on break for summer. :-( So I am looking for a new show that my hubby won't like, to binge watch when I'm alone- any suggestions are welcome...

Question 8: What’s your favorite junk food?

Unfortunately, I am a big fan of pretty much all junk food.  Ice cream may be my favorite though, especially if it's homemade.

Question 9: Do you have a pet or pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?

No, I do not.

Question 10: What are your number one favorite nonfiction and fiction books?

Let's see, the Bible is the obvious answer ;-)  for the unobvious, I will say that I really enjoyed You and Me Forever: Marriage in Light of Eternity> by Francis and Lisa Chan.  It is technically a marriage book, but very much focused on your own relationship with Christ first. And I loved it and highly recommend it!  Another nonfiction that I recommend to all single ladies is Lady in Waiting: Becoming God's Best While Waiting for Mr. Right it completely changed my thoughts on "waiting" for a man and the fact that I didn't actually need to have that mindset.
Fiction... hmm, I very much enjoyed the Harry Potter series.  And I like Christian fiction books and I've enjoyed the Veronica Mars books, because I just cannot get enough of that show.  

Question 11: What’s your favorite beauty product?

If you know me, this won't surprise you - but I don't really do much make-up or have a big detailed crazy-long beauty routine. But, I will say that anything that allows me to let my hair air dry while accentuating my curls and decreasing the frizz is my favorite! And because I don't wear a lot of make-up, I also really like Mary Kay's Mineral Powder Foundation- it's not liquid and heavy and goopey. Instead it is light and easy! And as a bonus I can use it to put on my mascara because the lid is like a mirror- (because that is seriously all I do- powder foundation and mascara with sunscreen underneath now that I walk outdoors more.)
Hmm, so I guess I did have a favorite or few! 

Question 12: When were you last embarrassed? What happened?

I was offered some home-made cake by a co-worker, when I asked what the occasion was, he said it was his birthday... whoops, sorry...Happy Birthday?! :-/

Question 13: If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Besides water, probably coffee.  You can have it blended, iced, hot, flavored! 

Question 14: What’s your favorite movie?

Well, I really love the movie Shag  I've watched it so many times with my family that not only is it a favorite, but there are so many memories attached to it now! 

Question 15: What were you in high school: prom queen, nerd, cheerleader, jock, valedictorian, band geek, loner, artist, prep?

Well, I went to a very small high school (60 in my graduating class).  That being said, we didn't follow usual social norms of being in one group.  So, I was a Beta Club nerd and Valedictorian, I was a band geek for a couple of years, I was a jock playing volleyball and softball, I was a redneck FFA (Future Farmers of America) president, and I was a class officer and on Homecoming Court... so there you go.

Question 16: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?

Well, I'm pretty happy where I am...but I would have a house in New York, Ireland, the mountains, and the beach I suppose with a helicopter to get to each quickly, or a jet I guess for Ireland and New York...you know, since we're dreaming! ;-)

Question 17: PC or Mac?

I am a PC fan myself, however when my computer died I became a Mac girl at home since that's what my husband has.

Question 18: Last romantic gesture from a crush, date, boy/girlfriend, spouse?

My hubs and I kiss every day so I don't know if that counts... but he sometimes leaves me sweet notes on our dry erase board on the back of the door... which is really pretty sweet since most of my notes to him are a list of things to not forget - that I make at his request! :-D

Question 19: Favorite celebrity?

Probably Candace Cameron Bure.  

Question 20: What blogger do you secretly want be best friends with?

Jen Thorn- she constantly encourages and challenges me with her posts.

So there you go all the things you now know about me that you never wanted to! ;-)
And if you have any suggestions for shows to binge watch, blogs to read, hair/beauty products to try, or books to read please share them with me-  I am always open to other's ideas and suggestions!
Have a fabulous day!
Love in Christ, 
Alyson
