Randomness.


Melissa of My Soul is the Sky tagged me in this fun quiz/questionnaire thing! Learn a little bit more about me, then go check out Melissa's post! And I'll tag a few people to keep this going! 

#1. What's a nickname only your family calls you?
Ems? I don't really have many nicknames...some that only Race calls me are EmFish, EmSquishy, and lots of other weird things like that. Haha. 

#2. What's a weird habit of yours?
Whenever I wake up and Race is not next to me I call him. No matter where he is and despite the fact that I'm never fully awake. The conversations always last about thirty seconds and I say weird things. Maybe I'll have Race post about some of these conversations sometime. Haha.

#3. Do you have any weird phobias?
Driving in our crazy busy small town. And driving in weird weather conditions.

#4. What's a song you secretly LOVE to blast & belt out when you're alone?
Enrique Iglesias Heroe {Spanish version!}

#5. What's one of your biggest pet peeves?
When people browse movies on Netflix or Redbox for FOREVER but never settle on anything to watch! I'm all about picking something fast, seeing if it's any good, and then changing my mind if it's not. I don't understand browsing. Haha. 

#6. What's one of your nervous habits?
 I play with my ears when I'm nervous. {And random other times as well. I always say this phrase to Race "My ears are the perfect temperature right now!" And he says it makes no sense but to me it really does.}


#7. What side of the bed do you sleep on?
If I'm standing at the end of the bed it would be the right side. Does that make sense? {For some reason whenever we're out of town Race and I switch which side of the bed we normally sleep on.}


#8. What was your first stuffed animal & it's name?
I don't remember stuffed animals but my mom made me a doll for my first Christmas and I have had that for forever. I actually never named her though..Hmm...

#9. What's the drink you ALWAYS order at starbucks?
Strawberries & Creme frapuccino! Mmmm! 

#10. What's the beauty rule you preach.. but never ACTUALLY practice?
I don't think I preach any beauty rules...You should all preach some to me though!! 

#11. Which way do you face in the shower?
I face away from the shower head most of the time. 

#12. Do you have any 'weird' body 'skills'?
I can lick my elbow. Booyah! 


#13. What's your favorite 'comfort food'/food thats 'bad' but you love to eat it anyways?
Rice Krispie treats! Or Cool Ranch Doritos!

#14. What's a phrase or exclamation you always say?
"Bum squeezes!" {Race and I have this rule where if one of us says that the other must oblige. Haha. Awkward...maybe? But we like it!}

#15. Time to sleep- what are you ACTUALLY wearing?
Plaid red PJ pants and a t-shirt.


Now I want to tag these fun ladies!

Mia of Color it Mia


Brooke of Silver Lining

Before you go check out this fun panel I made to help support the end of AIDS!


Head on over here to make your own panel and support the beginning of the END of AIDS! 
And head on over to Elisabeth's blog to read a little bit more about this!

P.S. Today I'm grateful for a cute husband who had hot water ready for me to make hot chocolate with the second I walked in from the freezing cold snow after class! {I know it's not November anymore but he's awesome so I'm still grateful for him!}

  4. Aw, that's so cute that you play with your ears when you are nervous. My little nephew sticks his finger in his ear when he gets scared to calm him down. LOL. Kind of reminded me of that.

  5. Ahaha you are adorable. Loved all of this.

  6. Uh oh...#5? I am a browser. And it is slightly annoying...I usually manage to annoy myself when I browse netflix. HA. :)

    & can you sing in Spanish?! AWEsOME!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Haha I'm definitely the kind of person that takes about an hour and a half to settle on a movie...it's kind of ridiculous :/

    Fun list dear!

  8. seriously sounds like we could have grown up as sisters. Except for the cool ranch chips. My husband is in love with them, and apparently mixed dried veggies with ranch dipping sauce doesn't count.

    in other news, at the redbox the other day, we waited for over ten minutes as a man searched through, only to decide he wasn't in the mood for a movie! I didn't mind. He was in his 80's at least, and had funny comments over the video covers : )
