I've been tagged! by the lovely @scunning at I'm Stepping Forward. I'm not a huge fan of these survey things, but it won't hurt me to answer some questions and pass it along :)

1. Name someone with the same birthday as you.
Erica Spradley, we went to the same schools from K-12.

2. Where was your first kiss?
At school in the 4th grade. Does that even count as a kiss? My first kiss kiss was on a group date freshman year of high school.

3. Have you ever seriously vandalized someone else’s property?
Ha, I don't think so. My dad being a cop and all, I'm not foolish enough to do something like that.

4. Have you ever hit someone of the opposite sex?
In high school, for sure. Some guys just deserve it.

5. Have you ever sung in front of a large number of people?
Yes, for school and I did it at church a couple of times.

6. What’s the first thing you notice about your preferred sex?
It's a toss up between their height and their smile (or lack of).

7. What really turns you off?
Constant immaturity. There is a time and a place for everything, and that is not 24/7, everywhere you go.

8. What do you order at Starbucks?
Usually a Mocha Frappucino or a Caramel Macchiato.

9. What is your biggest mistake?
Oh, you have come to the right place! Ha, I have made so many.. but I guess the one I have regretted the longest would be leaving my college after only 2 years. I miss the people and the atmosphere. And I think I'll be in school forever now, trying to make up for lost time.

10. Have you ever hurt yourself on purpose?
Emotionally maybe, but definitely not physically.

11. Say something totally random about yourself.
I am NOT my own worst critic. That lil saying isn't true for me. I figure there are always going to be people criticizing me and what I do, so why should I criticize myself?

12. Has anyone ever said you looked like a celebrity?
When I was way younger I had a couple friends tell me I looked like DJ from Full House. And two boys from camp told me I looked like Drew Barrymore, and that's because my friends and I were supposed to be Charlie's Angels. But I definitely don't look like anyone famous.

13. Do you still watch kiddie movies or TV shows?
Not kid tv, unless I'm with my nephew. But like Disney movies, for sure!

14. Did you have braces?
Nope, never had them.

15. Are you comfortable with your height?
Ha, I'm glad Sarah is taller than me! In middle school, I was taller than all the boys.. so that was no fun. But they all caught up in high school. 5'8" is a pretty average height.

16. What is the most romantic thing someone of the preferred sex has done for you?
This may not seem romantic to most, it's just kind of sweet.. but it's what comes to mind. I was going to a formal for my sorority, and wasn't planning to take a date because I wasn't with anyone at the school. I was talking to a guy at another college, but he found out about it.. came to my school (without me knowing) to pay for himself as my date. And he showed up to take me to my formal. I was so shocked and thought it was soo cute!

17. When do you know its love?
When you're able to see past any flaws and accept him as he is. When he makes you feel like you are more important than he is to himself. And while you know you could live without him, you know you'd never want to.

18. Do you speak any other languages?
Nope. One year of Spanish, two years of French, and four years of Latin. And still, no.

19. Have you ever been to a tanning salon?
Yes, did it for like 5 weeks with my roommate. Wasn't too impressed.

20. What magazines do you read?
People and Redbook are just about the only ones I will actually read.

21. Have you ever ridden in a limo?
Nope, can't say that I have.

22. Has anyone you were really close to passed away?
Not extremely close, like a parent or a best friend. I've been blessed. But I've definitely been to more funerals than I would ever care to.

23. Do you watch MTV?
I used to. But I rarely ever do now, unless a good movie is on.

24. What’s something that really annoys you?
Certain sounds, drive me up the wall. Repetitive ticking, thumping, tapping noises.. annoy the crap out of me!

25. What’s something you really like?
I really really like tropical things. Tropical places, tropical decorations, colors, scents, etc.

26. Do you like Michael Jackson?
Yep, I just adore child molesters. Did he perform influential, popular music? Yes. But do I like that man? Definitely not.

27. Can you dance?
Ha, depends on what you consider dancing. I do dance, but I'm not sure you'd like to see it.

28. What’s the latest you have ever stayed up?
I can't even tell you. I'm guessing around 8 am.

29. Have you ever been rushed by an ambulance into the emergency room?
Yes, after my car accident with my mom.

30. Tag 5 people!

@PaciGraveyard, @snarkykisses, @MinnesotaJoZ (<--they've already been tagged, but I'm still picking them) @irishsamom, and @ShannonSunshine

(FYI: In case you’ve never done a MEME, just remember to link the person that tagged you, answer the same questions, and then tag five people to do the same. Have fun!)

I just love your definition of love. If you love them why would you ever want to be without them? Brilliant.

Amanda West said...

I'm totally with you on your opinion of Michael Jackson.

I've been too scared to say anything 'bout it since he passed away, for fear of being smacked in the face or something...

But truth's the truth.
