Uniquely You

1) Do you prefer to talk or text?  I am an e-mailer and texter.  I really hate talking on the phone for extended amounts of time.

2) How often do you make your bed?   In a perfect would, it would be everyday.  However, it’s not a perfect world, so the answer is almost never.

3) What sounds do you hear right now?  One of my favorite shows, “Bones” just started, so it’s in the background.

4) List three things that you always carry with you.  My phone, wallet and aquaphor.

5) What are your favorite TV shows?   Amazing Race, Homeland, Bones, and Modern Family.

6) Is there a hobby that you’d like to devote more time to? If so, what is it?  Photography!  I really hope to invest in a nice camera one day, but for now, my point and shoot will have to suffice.

7) What is your favorite drink?  99% of the time, I drink water.  But sometimes, I like to enjoy a cold fountain coke or if I need a drink, drink, it’s blue moon or a shiraz.

8) Share a couple of cool facts about your family.  My dad was one of six kids and he and all of his brothers all only had one child.   I find that so interesting considering they all had siblings!   His family also changed their last name somewhere along the line which ultimately determined my last name.  My last name was really common, but the name prior to them changing it was really cool and different.

9) List one thing that you will do for yourself today. Read for fun.  :)

10) Share something that you’re thankful for today.  My husband who is on the mend after quite the summer.  I’m also thankful for the month of October which will keep us busy with lots of fun stuff!

 Tech Questions

1.  PC or Mac?  Oh, I used to be a Mac, but then it died (RIP after five incredible years),  and I didn’t have an extra grand just hanging out in my bank account, so I went back to PC.  I still miss it, but it hurts a little less now that I’m used to PC again.

2. When did you get your first computer?  Fourth grade, so…1989?  I went to a science magnet school, so we were all sent home with an Apple desktop, were required to do homework “online” and submit via prodigy email.  Crazy.

3. Do you use cable, DSL or something else?   Cable.

4. When choosing a laptop, do you think it’s more important to choose the fastest one, or the lightest one?    I go for speed and features, not so much the weight.  If I traveled more, perhaps I would take weight into consideration, but for now, I’m all about the fun stuff.

5. What kind of cell phone do you own?   I just got the new Samsung Galaxy S3 two days ago.  I contemplated getting an iPhone, but I have loved the droid I had for the past two years, and just decided to stick with the droid platform.  I love it!

6. How do you carry your laptop when you travel?   I sneak it in my husbands backpack and make him carry it.  :)

7. How many e-mails do you send on an average day?   No idea.  A LOT.

8. Do you ever blog using your iPad or similar tablet?   Nope.

9. What do you use more often – a desktop or a laptop?   I have a desktop at work and a laptop at home, so I think it’s equally divided.

10.  As a blogger, are there other gadgets that you need to get the job done?  If so, what are they?   A camera!  I rely on pictures a lot when it comes to blogging, so having either my phone camera or canon camera handy is key.

:: A Little More Personal::

1. Are you a morning person?  Actually, I am.  Never in my life did I think I’d become a morning person.  Growing up, I could sleep til noon everyday, but it’s rare for me to sleep past 8:00am/8:30am.

2. Are you an introvert or an extrovert?  I’m totally an introvert.  I need me time.  I need to read and decompress and I thrive on that as opposed to feeding off of other people’s energy.  I like being social, don’t get me wrong, but I’m a classic introvert.  :)

3. Are you addicted to anything? If so, what?    I think I’m probably addicted to caffeine because I fear if I were to skip it, I’d have a headache.  Lame.  Other addiction?  Pinterest!

4. How many times have you been in love?  Twice?  I give it a question mark because the first go around was a mess, and after being in love with my husband, I just don’t see how the first time was every truly love.

5. What is your position on politics?  I definitely lean to the left, but I’m no bleeding heart.

6. Are you religious?  Not really.  I think there’s a higher power, and I have spiritual moments, but I’m not particularly religious.

7. Would you prefer backpacking or a luxury hotel?   Hands down, a luxury hotel.  I’m so ridiculously not a backpacking kinda gal.

8. Do you have/want pets?  Chocolate lab, Hunter, and tabby cat, Delilah.  BFF.

9. Are you a sports fan?  Yes!  Huge hockey fan!  Baseball!  Football!  Olympics!!

10. How often do you brush your teeth?  At least twice a day.

11. Do you have tattoos and/or piercings?  Just my ears, and three tattoos.

12. What’s your favorite clothing brand?   I thoroughly enjoy Old Navy and Gap.

13. Should a man open doors for a woman?   Yeah, but I don’t get all bent out of shape if it doesn’t happen.  And I don’t necessarily think a man should do anything, but I do think it’s a nice gesture.

14. Which season is your favorite?  Fall!  I love the change of seasons and being on the verge of the holidays.

15. Would you rather eat less or workout more?  Eat less.

16. What’s your idea of romance?    Surprise flowers, unexpected cards/love notes and just general appreciation.  I mean, I like to get dressed up for a hot date just like the next girl, but I’m pretty low key when it comes to my romance expectations.

17. How often do you do things that are outside of your comfort zone?   Errrr.  Probably not as much as I should.  Going back to that whole introvert thing, I find myself getting all anxious and stressed out in foreign situations, but this is something I could definitely work on.

18. Christmas or Halloween?  Christmas!!  Thanksgiving!!  My most favorite time of year!

19. Would you rather live in the country or the city?    Honestly, I’m becoming more and more country.  If my husband could have his way, we’d live another 20 miles outside of the city on three acres, but I think that’s a little too country.  We’re both just so over the hustle and bustle of the city, and thoroughly enjoy sprawling land and suburban houses.

20. Share your life philosophy.  Accept the good.  It’s so, so, so, easy to get wrapped up in the negative and sometimes, we just need to remember to accept the good.

Psssst, I have a giveaway ending today — go here to enter before it’s too late!

Friend Makin’ Mondays

Summertime

6. Would you prefer to spend a hot summer day at the mall or at a swimming pool?  Definitely the pool.  I loathe the mall.

7. Are you more likely to tan or sunburn? Ugh. I burn like whoa.  I got really tan one summer but that was literally from laying at the pool for three months in one-hour increments.  God, that took so much work.
