Wee Bit Wednesday

{one} what color best describes you + why?
I think a really bright green describes me right now. I'm pretty happy and bright in my life right now.
{two} how have you changed in the past year?
Wow, I think I've changed a lot in the past year. I have grown up a lot and found the person that I am going to marry. I've also learned to let go of a lot of things and people that aren't positive in my life.

{three} have you ever had any surgeries?

{four} why did you start your blog?
I loved reading other people's blogs so much that I thought it might be fun. It really has a been a good outlet for me in so many ways.

{five} what are you looking forward to this summer?
I'm most looking forward to being out in the sun. I love the pool and the boat. Second, I guess I'd have to say our girls beach trip coming up. This is such a fun time with all my college friends.
{six} do you have any family traditions for the 4th of July?
Not really. My only tradition is to try to do something in the sun.

{seven} what’s something new that you’ve tried in the past few months?
I've really been trying to learn more about plants and how to take care of them. I've got an expert living with me, so why not.
{eight} what is the perfect a/c temperature?
Something warm. I freeze all the time.

{nine} what was the last movie you saw in the theater?
I saw Hangover 2 in the Starkville theater with my friend, Krista, and her friend, Katlin. Side note here: I got to stay in the old trailor park while I was there and hang with college kids. They were so gracious to hang out with someone as ancient as me, and I felt really old. As old as I felt though, I had a blast and got some tips on how to be trendy from these stylish ladies!! I can't say enough about how funny Krista and her friend are, and I wouldn't eat Taco Bell in a trailor park with anyone else.

{ten} what song do you think everyone should hear at least once?
This is such a hard one for me. I'm going to say Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen. Just a beautiful song with beautiful lyrics. So many people have done such wonderful covers of it too. A close second would be Lost by Anouk.

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Wee Bit Wednesday

{one} how many times have you been a bridesmaid/maid of honor?
I've been maid of honor twice. Once in my sister's wedding and once in my friend, Katie's wedding. Both were really fun to help with. I've been a bridesmaid 4 other times. I was in my friend Stephanie's first, followed by Alison, Lindsey and Kristin. That's a lot of bridesmaids dresses. I've also been my friend Kelly and my friend Wally's proxy bride.

{two} what’s the last thing your do before you fall asleep at night?
Right before I close my eyes, I plug in my phone to the charger and set my alarm.

{three} you just won your dream vacation, all expenses paid. where are you going?
I'm headed straight to Greece. How beautiful is that place? I'm embarassed to admit this, but I fell in love with it when I watched The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.

{four} what is your favorite outdoor activity?
Going out on the boat or helping Justin do yard work. Honestly, I mostly just watch. "Help" probably wouldn't be the word for it.

{five} as a child, what did you want to “be when you grew up”? did you end up there?
I remember wanting to be a nurse for a while, then a psychologist. I work for a non-profit, so I didn't really come close to either of those.

{six} what are 3 things your dream home would have that you don’t currently have?
Since we are currently in a rental, this list could go on and on. The first would have to be a central vac. My parents have one of these. Your vaccuum just plugs up to the wall in every room. Also in the kitchen, there's this thing under the cabinet ledge that just sucks up all the dirt you sweep. No more scooper. How sweet is that? The next thing would be a lot of land for Justin. I don't think he would care what our house looked like if we lived on a lot of land. The last thing would probably be a really big shower with a steam room. I just love those.

{seven} what’s for dinner tonight?
Well, right now there is a roast in the crock pot with potatoes, carrots, mushrooms and gravy. When I get home, I'm going to make some rice, black eyed peas, okra and rolls. We are having some friends over for dinner. I just love cooking for people.

{eight} if someone stopped by your house unannounced on a typical Saturday night, what would they find you doing?
If we were there, we would probably be on the couch watching TV or a movie. We're usually out of town or out somewhere, though.

{nine} what’s your average monthly water bill?
Ours is diffent from month to month, because every other month we pay for sanitation and some other things. One month it will be around $20, and the next it's about $118.

{ten} what do you do to relax?
I like to lay out by the pool or go on the boat. Sometimes I'll just read my kindle or take a nap.

Happy Wednesday Everyone!!
