Q & A with Katie 11.17.10

My brain is not functioning well enough to come up with some catchy, inviting intro, so here you go…three ways to get to know a little more about me!

Ten on Tuesday (or Wednesday)

1. What is your favorite breakfast pastry?
Is a bagel a pastry? If not, then I’m not a big breakfast pastry fan.

2. Were you ever in a Thanksgiving or Christmas play?
I was in several Christmas plays. In fact, I think we did one every year at church in elementary school. I also played the “adult” role of Sophia Spaghetti when I was working in children’s ministry in high school.

3. What is your favorite clothing accessory?
I don’t really wear accessories other than a belt, so I guess that would be it!

4. What is your favorite item of clothing?
My black lounging pants. Those are the most comfortable things on earth. I have a feeling once I’m pregnant, I will be living in them!

5. What is your favorite color and why?
Green. Not sure why…I’m finding it goes with a lot of other colors really well, though.

6. What is your favorite type of Christmas cookie?
Snowballs! (Mexican wedding cakes, I think is their alternate name)

7. What is your favorite scent (food, perfume/lotion)
Grapefruit is one I’m liking a lot right now. I also love vanilla. And the smell of sunscreen. Takes me back to the beach and summer time.

8. What is your favorite household cleaner?
Clorox wipes. Use those suckers on everything (except my sisters granite countertops)

9. When you were a kid what did you want to be when you grew up? And what did you actually grow up to be?
I wanted to be a lot of things growing up, from a ballerina to a strawberry picker (we had strawberry fields near our house) to a broadcast journalist to a teacher. I did teach for two years, but most of my experience has been administrative related.

10. What is the last song or album you bought?
I actually just downloaded a couple of songs last night for our RUBY worship time today. I don’t remember the LAST one I downloaded, but one of them was the song “Surrender” by Lincoln Brewster (AMAZING!).


Hoo are you?

1. Do you ever burp out loud in private or public? Private…yes, all the time. My husband always comments how sexy it is by saying “oh baby.” For some reason, I don’t really do it in public.

2. How often do you get sick each year? If by sick you mean not feeling well…like constantly. My allergies are not friendly to my body. If you mean “cold” sick…2-3 times a year. If you mean like flu sick…it’s been a long time since I’ve had the flu.

3. Would you rather paint a room in your house yourself, or have someone else do it for you? If you know me at all, you know this is an easy answer…I’d rather do it myself, though after I finished, I’d probably wish I had someone else do it!

4. If you get 30 minutes to yourself, what do you do? Sleep or blog hop or catch up on a TV show.

5. Do you allow people to wear shoes in your house? When we lived in our apartment, I usually took them off because it’s more comfortable, but it’s not like we made people…if they wanted to, they were welcome to. Not sure what we’ll do in our future house.



Wee Bit Wednesday

{one} what time do you normally wake up?
I usually wake up between 6:00 and 6:30 when my husband leaves for work. Then, I go run before getting ready for work.

{two} do you have a go-to song for karaoke?
No. I will refrain from torturing others in the room with my non so melodious voice. That is a gift I was NOT given.

{three} if you could only see black and white except for one color, what color would you choose to see?
Hmmm…something bright and cheery…maybe yellow?

{four} what color best matches your personality?
I’d say blue. It’s a responsible color.

{five} if you could choose one meal to cook better than anyone else, what would it be?
Oh gosh, I don’t know. I don’t think it’s about cooking something BETTER than someone else. It’s about enjoying the process of cooking and eating once its made.

{six} how many keys do you have on your key ring?
Four. My car, John’s car, my sister’s house (where we live) and my parents’ house. I used to have a lot more, plus a whole ton of keychains until my mechanic told me a super heavy keychain can mess up your ignition.

{seven} do you give your pets birthday/christmas gifts?
We have given them toys or treats/wet food on Christmas, but don’t do anything for their birthdays. Two of the three are strays and we can only guestimate when they were born.

{eight} when your plate has different foods on it, do you mix or not?
Not really. I don’t mind if the food touches, but I’m not going to mix it up.

{nine} if you could hire someone to do one thing for you all the time, what would it be?
Clean my house. I have to be in a cleaning mood to actually get any cleaning done.

{ten} when flying, do you prefer the window or aisle seat?
Aisle. I hate having to climb over people to get out to use the restroom or get something from the overhead bin. It creates problems because my husband prefers the aisle seat, which means I usually get stuck sitting in the middle next to a stranger.
