So, my 11 questions:
If you could only have one food for every single meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Pasta. I could eat any type of pasta and never get full. I love noodles, cheese, and sauce. We just had tortellini yesterday for dinner! Check out my list of recipes for a bunch of pasta dishes!
Baths or showers?
I can’t remember the last time I had a bath. But, I do love super hot showers. I could stand there and let time just pass me by, enjoying the steam. Since I have super fair, white, PALE skin, whenever I come out, it is bright red!
What’s the last movie you saw?
Gone With the Wind…I’m watching it right now with my students…check out why
Who do you admire and why?
I admire my church leaders, I admire my parents, I admire those teachers who overcome adversity and help their students change their lives.
What do you normally have for breakfast?
One of four things: chocolate slimfast, grits with cheese, oatmeal in a cup, or cereal.
What’s your favorite scent?
Orange, citrus-y stuff! Love it!
When was the last time you cried?
Um…probably last time I had a migraine. I get those so badly that I feel like I’m going to throw-up. I can’t get out of bed…terrible.
Are you going anywhere for a summer vacation?
Summer is really to be determined. I stop teaching tomorrow, but I’m looking for a summer job. Justin is taking classes over the summer an working, so we don’t know. We do know we want to do something for our 1 year anniversary in the beginning of August, but we don’t know what yet.
Cats or dogs?
Either, but I’m allergic to fur, so I don’t spend a lot of time around them. =( =( =(
What’s your favorite kind of fruit?
What’s the one song that you can’t help but sing along to?
Any Disney song! I know a bazillion of them by heart! Read here about why I love Disney songs.
My 11 random facts:
#1 I have a major case of blogger jealousy that’s been ongoing for quite some time.
#2 I feel that everyday I’m becoming more and more of a Morrell…Justin told me his family is just about obsessed with Sonic. Yesterday, we drove past a Sonic and I said I was thirsty so pull in. We both got huge strawberry lemonades.
#3 I am uber baby hungry.
#4 My right ring finger doesn’t straighten all the way. I have no idea why. I discovered it sometime in high school.
#5 I would love to own a bustle gown from either the mid 1800s
#6 I like to think I’m fashionable, but I don’t like spending money on clothes…so I pretend.
#7 I actually like haggis. I hate the look and the smell, but the taste is very good!
#8 Coming up with random facts that people don’t already know about me is very difficult to do.
#9 I hate pictures of myself. I hate taking pictures period. I feel that I must for the sake of Instagram, Facebook, and my blog.
#10 Contacts don’t sit still on my eyes anymore because I have astigmatism in both, and I hate wearing glasses.
#11 I am an adrenaline junkie. I love rollercoasters and want to go skydiving/bunjee jumping.
