Survey Says!?


My awesome friend, Mean Ang, tagged me to answer these questions that Candra came up with.  Happy Friday!

1. What's a nickname only your family calls you?

My dad used to call me Runt, because I was small and he was a pig farmer so they went hand in hand.  Andy calls me all kinds of names, but my favorite is Flower. 

2. What's a weird habit of yours?

Checking FB and IG whilst on the toilet.

3. Do you have any weird phobias?

Being falsely accused of a crime I didn’t commit and going to prison.

4. What's a song you secretly love to blast and jam out to when you are alone?

Some 80’s songs – can’t come up with anything specific right now but there are some embarrassing songs from that decade that I will crank up when I hear it on the easy listening channel. 

5. What's one of your biggest pet peeves?

Bad drivers drive me NUTS!   

6. What's one of your nervous habits?

I used to run my fingernail along the bottom of my front teeth, it made a funny clicking sound.  IDK, don’t ask.  It just worked for me.  And I wouldn’t even say it was a nervous habit, just something I did.

7. What side of the bed do you sleep on?

I lay on the side that’s not next to the door – depends on where our bed is in our room.  Currently that means I’m sleeping on the right side when looking at the bed from the foot. 

8. What was your first stuffed animal and what was it's name?

My cute little Teddy Bear, Ted.  I still love that little guy.  If I get super upset I can snuggle up with him and feel better.  He reminds me of Garfield’s teddy bear, Pookie.  I cut out a cartoon one time of Garfield walking around looking crabby.  He found Pookie sitting on the floor, picked him up, gave him a big squeeze and said with a smile on his face, “Pookie, you sure know how to spoil a good bad mood!”  I feel that way about Ted, too. 

9. What's the drink you always order at Starbucks (or Dunkins)?

I don’t.  Have never been to either before.

10. Which way do you face in the shower?

I face away from the shower.  Unless I need to rinse my face, then I put my face into the water stream.

11. Do you have any weird body skills?

I can touch my tongue to my nose.

12. What is your favorite comfort food, that you know is bad but you eat it anyway?

Pretty much anything I eat – ha! Used to be Mt Dew.  Last night we had a horrible experience at a restaurant because it was crazy loud and Tate can’t handle that right now.  We left and all I wanted to make me feel better was a MD.  BUT I can’t have them right now because they upset Tater’s tummy, so I just dreamed about it.  So now I’d say I go to chocolate for comfort. 

13.What is a phrase or exclamation you always say?

I can’t think of one!  I’m sure there must be something I say… ??

14. What do you wear when you go to sleep?

An old t-shirt.  When I was pregnant and couldn’t fit in mine anymore I stole some of Andy’s and now still wear those.  Wish I had some cute little nighties to wear but I don’t.  I used to just sleep in my undies and socks – that was before kids.  Miss those days of freedom! LOL!

15.What did you used to wear that you thought was cool, and now you realize it wasn't?

Flannel shirts tied around my waist.  Yes I did.  Ew. (Said in Jimmy Fallon’s “Ew” skit voice.)  Oh, and a pick in my back pocket.  Lame!


Now you pick one of the above q’s to answer in the comments!  And if you want to answer them all on your blog, go ahead!  Just please tag Ang and Candra in your post.

  1. I do #2 all the time haha and I can't even believe #9! No Starbucks? Delicious

  2. My nieces at nephews call me Aunt TT, my brother use to call me Fristi and my husband calls me Sunshine. My fav Starbucks is a Venti Iced Caramel Machiatto (sp). I have never been to Dunken.

  3. Ummm - I swear we are the same person!! I totally copied this idea today!!

  4. #2 is a given with most people I think! Haha! #3 would make me nervous too! If you ever come to the northeast I'll take you to Dunkin & Starbucks!

  5. I check FB and IG in the same places you do. :)
    I'm also kind of in shock that you've never been to Starbucks or Dunkins. How is this possible?!
    And, I always make Scott sleep closest to the door... What if someone breaks into our room? I need Scott to protect me while I hover under the sheets.
