Friend Makin Monday!!!

SUCH a fun way to "meet" new friends... so please, if you haven't already, JOIN US!!  (thanks Kasey!!)

Today's task:
 Copy and paste these questions to your blog and give them your own answers.

You wouldn't be caught dead where? a rave (although I'm not sure if they still have them...)

Do you have any hidden talents?: I can bend my arm the opposite way it's supposed to go

Name two things you consider yourself to be very good at:  baking, planning parties

Name two things you consider yourself to be very bad at:  dancing, math 

Have you ever won a trophy?: yes - AWANA grand prix for the best designed car

Name one thing not many people know about you: I spent 6 months in Africa when I was 8 years old

Name your earliest memory: puking in preschool so I wasn't able to go on the zoo field trip

What was your favorite musical group in jr. high?:  LOVED Tiffany (not a group per se...)

What was something the worst roommate you ever had did?:   I always had decently normal roommates

When you were a kid what did you want to be when you grew up?: A ballerina

What was your worst dating experience?: For some reason my friends always wanted to set me up on blind dates.  I went on a few MISERABLE dates!  The one that really stands out is with Shane.  He lived a couple of hours away so he wanted me to drive.  We went out for a very awkward dinner then to a movie.  It was FREEZING outside - I was nervous and playing with my car keys.  Well... the key broke in half.  I had to call my parents at 1am to come and bring me the spare.  HORRIBLE.  Needless to say, thankfully I never saw him again.  

If you were about to die what would your last meal be?:  Cheeseburgers, onion rings, brownies with a HUGE Coke

Who is the most important person in you life?: Husband

If your house was on fire what 3 things would you grab on your way out?: assuming husband and kids were out... my quilt (my grandmother started making it for our wedding gift even before we were engaged - she just "knew".  She died in a car accident before it was finished, so my sister and Andy's grandmother finished it for us.  Could NEVER be replaced), picture books, purse

Okay! There are your go forth and answer them! Don't forget to sign in with Mr. Linky! And thanks for joining in with the fun!


  1. I love your last meal......would have to join you on that one!! I also love the story of the quilt. That is very special!

  2. I love AWANA! My older 3 are in it and my 3 year old won his trophy for 2nd fastest car for cubbies! How cool that you remember that.

    Sorry that your first memory is puking.Guess it made an impression on you!

    I'm gonna follow you...cuz your about me pic is fun..and your posts are too :)

  3. WOW...Africa how interesting. I loved living overseas. We spent almost 4 years living in Thailand and the kids went to an international school. We loved it!

    Happy FMM Day!

  4. Hi!
    I liked your FMM list! What a funny date story (although I am sure it was not funny at the time) and how sweet that you have a wonderful keepsake from your grandma!


  5. If I had a trophy for the best "what would I save from a fire" story you'd get it! What a precious memory of your grandma!

    Happy FMM (on a Tuesday!)

  6. I didn't know your grandmother started a quilt for you. I must see it, that is something that can't be replaced. Cool! Mmm, cheeseburgers!

  7. I was a big Tiffany fan, too!
