11 Questions from Jodie aka Not Pretending (to be sane)

  1. As a kid (or older) when you pretended to be someone else, who were you and why did you want to be them?
    I don’t ever remember pretending to be like anyone. I was an only child, so I had my imagination with stuffed animals.
  2. Have you had your “15-minutes of fame” yet? How did it happen? (If it hasn’t happened, how would you like it to happen?)
    I try to stay out of the “Spot Light”
  3. If you could change one thing about your personality – what would it be and why?
    To not let others use me. I think it is one of my biggest things that I am trying to “change”
  4. What was the last novel you read? Would you recommend it?
    The Choice by Nicholas Sparks
  5. Who was/is your favorite teacher, and why?
    My favorite teacher was Coach Kribbs, he was my History teacher. I think the reason why he was my favorite is because he helped me with my Graduation Exam, he took the time to sit down with me and make sure I passed the history part of it, and I will always be grateful for that.
  6. Besides writing, tell us about one of your other talents.
    I like to craft. I just started back sewing. I also like re-doing furniture. You can see those under “projects” in my categories.
  7. Where were you when President Kennedy was shot?
    I wasn’t even thought of it, and my Mom wasn’t either.
  8. You wrote a novel about your life growing up, and now Hollywood is making a movie based on that novel. Which actor/actress would you want to play you, and why?
    I have no clue, but they would have to be pretty spacey and random to play a part of me 😉
  9. What was your favorite TV show when you were in grade school?  What about now?
    Friends! Oh, I miss that show, I even catch reruns sometimes, and I will eventually own all the seasons.
    Swamp People has to be one of my Favorites now.
  10. What are your top 3 pet peeves?
    Top Pet Peeves
  11. Do you like your first name? If not, what would you change it to?
    I would never change it, I love my name.

  3. Thank you ma’am!! I would post it on mine but I already did one and apparently it’s a faux-pa to put more than one up? lol But I’m all about questions!!! SO HERE! :)My 11 Questions for my Nominees

    Why did you start blogging?
    Because I was tired of telling people our story and tired of complaining to people I’d complained to a million times about the same pregnancy problems over and over and over…why don’t they care that my feet hurt?! It sort of kept me sane to just vent, praise, or put things out there that normally people wouldn’t know about me.
    Favorite quote?
    (from grey’s anatomy haha) At the end of the day faith is a funny thing. It turns up when you don’t really expect it. It’s like one day you realize that the fairy tale may be slightly different than you dreamed. The castle, well, it may not be a castle. And it’s not so important happy ever after, just that its happy right now. See once in a while, once in a blue moon, people will surprise you , and once in a while people may even take your breath away.
    What is one of your quirky habits?
    I obsessively twirl my hair. ALL. THE . TIME.
    What would be your realistic dream home?
    I really love our house even though it’s not huge or extravagant…I would like to make our kitchen bigger and with granite counters! I saw it and just KNEW it would be ours.
    What are the three most important things in your life? List them off without thinking!
    Things not people I guess…my blankie (like if there was a fire and I needed to get something (and nobody was in danger) fast- it would be my blankie), my phone, and my lip gloss.
    Who inspires you?
    My grandmother who is still alive today to see her great grand children and still dance a few nights a week! (ya know, at a senior center, not like at a senior strip club.)
    Have you ever Googled yourself?
    Definitely.
    Your favorite post on your own blog?
    I liked that I had a huge response to my pregnancy depression post. Even though it may not be the best post in the entire world, I liked the reactions I received after posting it.
    Your favorite post on another blog?
    I wish that Kristen from project:babies was still up because I LOVED her blog posts and now I can’t pull them up because she is incognito!
    Kindle or real book? Real book…it’s like having a trophy afterwards.
    What are you looking forward to the most in 2013?
    Meeting our boy!

    THANKS AGAIN!!! 🙂
