6 things you should know about me

Jacq from over at Just Jacq has come up with 6 questions for Things You Should Know About Me. So I decided to join along.

What's something new you have learned recently?
I don't have a great answer here so I'm going to say meal planning. It's not rocket science but I realized last week when I had a meal plan that my evenings ran much smoother and I was eating better. It takes a little bit of time but then every day I know what we are having for dinner and have a list of stuff to buy at the store at the beginning of the week. It just makes everything so much easier!

What actor would play you in a movie about your life?
I'm going to have to go with Jennifer Love Hewitt. I was always told I looked like her growing up.
But if she's not available I'll take Jennifer Garner. What's up with me and the Jennifers??

What is your most embarrassing memory?
I've been racking my brain on this one. I'm typically not too clumsy and don't really embarrass easily so this was a tough one. I do recall a time when I was trying on jeans at a store and had the girls with me. They began asking questions and commenting, rather loudly, like "Mommy, what kind of panties do you have on?" and "Mommy, your butt doesn't fit in those jeans" and "Mommy, why's your belly so big when you have those pants on?". The sales girl knocked to see if I need any help, I just ran out of the room and said nothing worked. I didn't buy any pants that day.

How do you like to show others love? Or what is your love language?
I had no idea what my love language is so I took this handy quiz and it let me know! All areas are out of 12. Turns out I am a 9 for Words of Affirmation, 8 for Physical Touch, 7 for Acts of Service, 6 for Quality Time and 0 for Receiving Gifts. Ha and here I thought I liked presents. 

If you were given $100 to spend, where would you spend it?
This is tough. The responsible side of my brain says "Save it!" but the shopping part of my brain says "Get a manicure and some new boots!"
What's a dream you are working towards making come true?
Being healthy and fit. This has been hard on me lately, but I know that it is really important to living a long and happy life. 
Or maybe I should just become Olivia Pope - Scandal's back tonight! :)

Play along - let me know your answers to these 6 questions!


  1. I'm with you on meal planning. I know it makes me weeks run so much better and I eat so much healthier when I have my breakfasts and lunches all ready to go for the week, but some weekends I just can't get myself to do it. I usually try to at least have something for breakfast ready and tuna fish or pb&j is always my backup lunch. Love "I didn't buy any pants that day." Lol, kids. I know I tortured my Mom with my lack of a filter.

  2. I have been meal planning for awhile now and I just love it. I took that love quiz, too from Just Jacq's blog and it was interesting... but, I have read the Love Languages book, so I kind of knew where I'd fall. If you haven't read it, it is an awesome book. I want to read the Love Languages for Children (I think that is the name of it) sometime, too.


Thanks for taking the time to comment. I really do appreciate every one I get!
