11 things

Yay for little survey things! I really like doing these, I think it's such a fun way to get to know people.

Here are my questions:
1. What is your favorite color and why?
Brown! I love how neutral it is, it goes with everything, and looks so sophisticated. I LOVE it!

**Side Note: THIS IS SO HARD! The first question was easy, but after about 10 minutes I've now skipped around and still only answered 2 other questions...I think I struggle with coming up with answers on the spot. Okay, continue on...   

2. Your favorite date idea or the best date you have ever been on?
Hmm... my favorite date with Andy was when we were dating. We drove down to Salt Lake and ate at the Mayan and watched a U2 movie on the big screen that they have at Jordan Commons. It was so much fun. But my ideal date would just to go and do something I've never done before, I don't care what it is! I just have this goal that I want to experience everything in life (the good things, anyway).

3. What would you do if you had 10 spare minutes?
I would study the scriptures. I always try to find that time and set it aside each day for scripture study, but it doesn't seem to happen often enough. And what would be even better, is cuddling with Andy while doing this.

4. What is your favorite childhood memory?
I think this one is my favorite because it just makes me laugh at my parents. When my sister and I used to fight, they would tie us together at our hands and ankles so that we had to learn to work it out. And I remember getting so mad that I had to be tied to my sister, but we always ended up working it out.

5. What is your favorite movie?
I absolutely love Dirty Dancing, that is definitely my favorite chick-flick. But my all-time favorite movie is Gladiator.

6. Name 2-3 things on your bucket list.
1) Run a 5K - I am actually doing this in March. We'll see how I do and then decide if I ever want to step it up to a half-marathon or something. It would be pretty sweet to do a triathlon, too.
2) Travel! I don't necessarily care where I go, I just want to see the world. I would love to go to South America and see the ancient ruins, travel Europe and enjoy all of the history there, go on an African Safari, visit Jerusalem and walk where Jesus walked - any of these would work for me. :)
3) Be a mommy. I guess I don't really care how many kids we have, as long as we have one so that I can be a mommy and Andy can be a daddy. (But I would really love 4-5) :)

7. What is your favorite shape and why? I know this sounds weird but it says a lot about your personality.
I think I would say a Square. That's the shape that my diamond is in on my wedding ring. And whenever I think of picture frames, I always go for square over any other shape.

8. What is your most embarrassing moment? (This was originally a duplicate question, so I just stole a different one, don't ask me why I chose this one...haha)
My most embarrassing moment, well I have 2. One was in the 8th grade, I was pretty new to menstruation and didn't know how to handle it... so after one my classes, I had to walk all the way from the annex to my locker and an older girl behind me whispered in my ear and said that "I had had an accident". It was humiliating! So I had to call my mom to come pick me up so I could go home and change my pants. It was awful! And then my other one, was when I lied to Andy before we were seriously dating. I told him I couldn't hang out because I had homework to do, when really I just wanted to hang out with another guy... And he caught me in the lie a few days later. Oh it was so embarrassing! But at least now we can joke about it. :)

9. What is your favorite restaurant?
Anything Mexican, I think. I really love this restaurant up here in Seattle called Cactus. It's the only restaurant I've found where you can order a Navajo Taco (and boy, do I love Navajo Tacos!)

10. What are your favorite gifts that you have given and received?
Received: New camera, KitchenAid, surprise visit from Mom and Dad on my birthday.
Gave: Any one of the sentimental gifts I've given Mom and Dad over the years, a donation in Dan & Judy's name to Reece's Rainbows (a down syndrome adoption agency) and a blanket and "love" book I made for Andy when we were dating.

11. What is your favorite candy bar?
I'm trying to get away from eating candy, so I don't even want to think about this... but if I had to say, it would definitely be a 100 Grand. Yum!


  1. You are going to run a 5k? Way to go! I always tell myself that I would run more if I had someone to do it with. I forget sometimes that you did track and actually like running. Thanks for picking question 8 for me. haha. I can't believe I put that one twice, I must have really wanted it. Oh man jr. high was so hard, girls are so mean sometimes. You tried to lie to Andy? I love it when you try and lie because it never works. Thanks for my laugh for the day!

  2. Yes, I am very excited for my 5k, but very nervous at the same time. I started training this week and it's not too bad. You don't remember when I got caught in my lie? I thought you were there...maybe not. But it's when I wanted to hang out with Justin instead, remember him? Haha! Andy is so the better choice. :)
