Me, Myself and I

There is a new link-up party in town! Once a month 5 new questions will be asked on the theme “me, myself and I” and my friend Kristen is one of the co-hosts. I knew I wanted to do a post for this when I first saw it, but as I’ve been reading other people’s answers to these questions I knew I just had to participate. The answers I’ve been seeing are so great, and you really learn a ton about the person behind the blog.

So here are my answers for this inaugural link-up party:

1. What is your biggest phobia?
Okay, so a “phobia” is an irrational fear, right? I really don’t think I have a phobia. I don’t like spiders or mice, but I’m not really irrationally afraid of them… But something that I do fear (just regular fear), and its just a recent thing of course, is that being sick will keep me from living the life I want to have. I fear that life won’t be the same. I obviously have a hard time with change…

2. If you could relive any day of your life, what would it be and why?
My first instinct was to say my wedding day. But then I thought about it, and it really is the perfect memory. I wouldn’t want to relive again, maybe things would change, or my perception of them would change. I want to keep the memory of that day sacred in my mind. But if I could relive a day, I would pick the day my best friend Kelly had her baby and I would make it so I could be there with her.

3. If you could choose to stay a certain age forever, what age would it be?
I would want to stay 24. It was just last year, but so many good things happened. We had just bought our house, we were really hitting our stride as a married couple and I wasn’t sick. Chris hadn’t gotten in his accident yet, I hadn’t lost my Grandmother yet, I was pioneering.  Yeah, 24 was a pretty great year.

4. Which celebrity do you get mistaken for?
I’ve never been “mistaken for” a celebrity before, but I’ve had a few people say I look like Drew Barrymore. There was a thing on Facebook a couple years ago where people put their celebrity doppelganger as their profile picture. This is what I put up as mine:


5. What songs are included in the soundtrack of your life?
1996: “Right Here Waiting” by Richard Marx, 1997: “Barbie Girl” by Aqua, 1998: “Together Again” by Janet and “Crush” by Jennifer Paige, 1999: “Learn to Fly” by the Foo Fighters, 2000: “Affirmation” by Savage Garden, “Iris” by the Goo Goo Dolls from 2006 when Chris and I met. And I’m going to stop there for now, cuz this is turning into a great idea for a post all by itself! I’m loving traveling through time with music. Bringing back a lot of great memories.

Great questions! I think this will be fun to participate in every month. Now I’m off to link up, and go explore some new blogs and learn a bit more about the people behind the blogs I love.

Have a great Tuesday!! SHE

  3. YES! I wasn't the only person ever to get into Aqua? I have to listen to that song now. And I agree - I wouldn't want to relive my wedding. It was a perfect day and I wouldn't change a thing.

    1. I loved Aqua!! Okay, I totally still do. The "Aquarius" album is my favorite. And thanks for getting what I meant about my wedding day. :)

  4. I would definitely relive my wedding day too- it was perfect! I also HATE HATE HATE spiders.
