Get to Know Me Q+A

It’s been a long time since I’ve done any kind of “get to know me” type of post. I did the actual Get to Know Me tag years ago when I first started my blog, but that’s since gotten buried in the archives as my blog has grown. So I figured it’s about time I do something like it again. I searched and found a bunch of questions related to this type of post, 15 of which I’m answering right now!

1.) Do you have any pets?
You mean my children? Yes, I have two! They both just had birthdays in March and April, so we officially have a 5 year old German Shepherd and a 1 year old Australian Shepherd. We love these breeds, even if it means constant shedding and vacuuming. Having two dogs is a lot different than just having one, but we’ve been so much happier because of it. These two have become closer than we ever could have imagined, and their personalities complement each other perfectly. Our family feels so complete. ♥
2.) What’s your favorite gadget?
The first things I think about when I hear “gadget” are my phone, computer, and other small devices I use almost daily. I don’t think I have a favorite between them, though, because they all have different purposes and are better at one thing more than others. If I had to narrow it down to two, I’d choose my phone and all-in-one desktop.

3.) What’s your longest relationship?
The one with my husband. We’ve been together 7 years, married for 1 ½. We started dating when I was 19 and he was 20, so there’s really not that much to compare it to. I feel so grateful everyday that we found each other at such a young age. Even though we’ve been together 7 years, and a year and a half of that was long distance, every second I spend away from him feels like forever. He’s my whole world. ♥

4.) Do you drive? If so, have you ever crashed?
Yes, I do. I actually really enjoy driving. I love my car and I love the open road. Traffic is the only thing I don’t like about driving. I have zero patience and I don’t trust other drivers at all. And no, I have never crashed. *knock on wood*

5.) Have you ever been to a different country?
I’ve been to three! I went on a cruise to Cozumel, Mexico when I was a senior in high school. I took another cruise to the Bahamas with my family when I was a sophomore in college. And we just recently took our honeymoon in Montego Bay, Jamaica October of 2017. Jamaica was definitely my favorite! See more of our trip here.
6.) Do you like sushi?
I always say yes to this question, but in reality the only sushi I like are California Rolls. Even though I grew up in Florida, I hate fish. Crab and shrimp are as far as I’ll go. The picture below is a throwback to my 22nd birthday (4 years ago). I was living in California with my boyfriend (now husband) and I ordered some kind of shrimp roll. The tail was sticking out on the end and I couldn’t help but take a second to play with my food!
7.) How old will you be turning on your next birthday?
I just had a birthday in January, so it’ll be awhile until my next one but I’ll be 27. That sounds so weird to even say because I still feel like I’m in my early 20’s. My Dad has always said that age is just a number and you’re only as old as you feel. The older I get, I’m understanding exactly what he means.

8.) Do you wear contacts or glasses?
Both. The majority of the time, I’m at home and just wear my glasses. I really only put my contacts on if I leave the house for more than one errand. Since working from home, I’ve actually lost a lot of my tolerance for wearing contacts. I used to be able to wear them for 12+ hours without a problem, but now my eyes start to get irritated and tired after 6-8 hours.
9.) Do you color your hair?
I’ve never colored all of my hair before. A few years ago, I took the plunge and dyed a strip of my hair teal because I thought it’d be fun. It was sooo fun!! I eventually switched out the blue to pink and loved the pink even more. I dyed it back to brown for my wedding, but I think about bringing back the pink all the time. It’s been 2 years without the pink and I’m thinking this Summer might be time to bring it back!
10.) What is your favorite pizza topping?
I don’t think I have one single favorite pizza topping, I typically switch between two combinations. I’ll either do the controversial ham and pineapple - which is delicious, by the way! Or I’ll do some kind of combination with ham, bell pepper, and/or black olives.

11.) Hamburger or cheeseburger?
Cheeseburger. I tried doing hamburgers for a while because my body doesn’t respond very well to dairy, but I just can’t. Even with all the lettuce, tomato, onion, etc. it’s too boring without the cheese. Just one slice, though. Any more is too much!

12.) Have you ever pulled an all-nighter?
On accident, yes. At one point our routine had gotten really bad and we were staying up until 3-4 in the morning. The joys of working for yourself! One night during 2017/2018 Winter, it started snowing. Snow in Florida is extremely rare, so we went outside to play. At that point, it was around 4:30-5 in the morning. By the time I finished my nightly shower routine and got in bed, it was almost 6am and the sun was coming up!
13.) What color are your eyes?
The short answer is brown. The color right outside of my pupils is a medium brown, which kinda fades out to a tan green color. Even though it’s not a true brown all the way around, I also wouldn’t consider it a hazel. My husband’s even caught it picking up some auburn colors in the sunset.

14.) Can you taste the difference between Pepsi and Coke?
Absolutely. I’m a soda freak! I can taste the difference between almost any soda. I played a blind-folded challenge game with my family when I was younger, trying to guess which cup had which soda. I did really good at that! And now I do it all the time with my husband and those freestyle machines. He’ll go get our drink and I’ll try to guess what he got.

15.) What’s your favorite thing to have for breakfast?
Coffee. Breakfast is one of my favorite foods, but I only ever eat it when it’s not breakfast time. I’m never hungry in the mornings, the thought of eating when I wake up literally makes me nauseous. But any other time during the day, I’ll eat any breakfast food. Cereal, pancakes, waffles, biscuits and gravy, eggs, you name it. Biscuits and gravy, and eggs benedict are my two all-time favorites.
Talk about a random assortment of questions! You can go back and read my original Get to Know Me post if you’d like, and I have many other similar posts that I’ve done. Those can be found by clicking the “tag” link at the top left corner of the page.

I hope you enjoyed this post! If you have any other questions, leave them for me in the comments section below. They may be featured in another Q+A in the future. ;)
