Getting to Know You (And Me!)

>> Sunday, February 7, 2010

Keely, over at MannLand 5 is hosting a great giveaway and wrote a fun "getting to know you" blog today!

I didn't get much sleep last night, so participating this morning is good because I just don't have much brain power.

So, to play....
Grab the questions..copy them onto your blog..answer them..then head back to Keely's blog and link up! If you participate, come back and leave me a comment so I can go visit and read your getting to know you questions!

The questions.......

1. How many piercing's do you have?
2. I love the sound of.....?
3. Favorite city?
4. Colts, Saints, or could care less?
5. Frozen yogurt or ice cream?
6. Favorite appetizer?
7. What item in your closet currently makes you the happiest?
8. Favorite facial moisturizer?


1. How many piercing's do you have?

I only have 4. Two in each ear. Once upon a time, I had a lofty goal of getting a belly ring on my 40th birthday. Two kids and 20 pounds later -- yeah....that ain't happenin'!

2. I love the sound of.....?

My girls' giggles, Nudgie babbling to herself in the morning, Nani singing, Thunderstorms, the ocean, coffee brewing, and My Marine's car when he come home from the base.

3. Favorite city?

First and foremost, my hometown of Pittsburgh! It's a beautiful city and is sometimes called the city of bridges (our city is second behind Venice, Italy for the number of bridges!) I miss it terribly!

Second would be San Francisco. I love the piers, the Golden Gate bridge and the fact that there's so much to do!

Third would be Orlando. Simply -- Disney!

4. Colts, Saints, or could care less?

I'm partial to the Colts, but would be happy if the Saints won. Overall - I just want to watch the commercials!

5. Frozen yogurt or ice cream?

Ice Cream!! Especially "Cookie Dough'nt You Want Some" from Cold Stone Creamery! YUM! (Which is why I don't have a belly ring!)

6. Favorite appetizer?

Hmmm.....this is a tough one because I love appetizers in general. I love the crab dip from Joe's Crab Shack. The fried zucchini & mozzarella from The Olive Garden. The calamari from P.F. Changs. But I think the top spot goes to the flaming saganaki from our local Greek restaurant!! Opa!!!

7. What item in your closet currently makes you the happiest?

I would have to say the jeans that I bought at Old Navy on clearance for $4! They are the comfiest jeans I've worn in a long time. And my Tinkerbell sweatshirt. Soft, warm AND cute!

8. Favorite facial moisturizer?

I love Clinique's Dramatically Different moisturizer. I've tried some different ones, but always come back to Clinique!

And there ya go! A little glimpse into my life!

We both had the same lofty goal of a belly button ring....ain't happening here either:)

I love the sound of thunderstorms too...and the ocean. So peaceful

Ooh, your ice cream looks good...I will say, cookie dough is a wonderful mix with ice cream...although, I have found myself eating cookie dough just by itself many more times than I would ever be willing to admit (yeah, no bellie button ring here either)...haha!

Nice getting to know you!

Oh how I love me some Cold Stone. I've never had the cookie dough one - just this cinnamon flavored thing. I can't remember the name tho. We {sadly!!} don't have Cold Stone here. The closest thing is Marble Slab about an hour away. So so sad! :)

Ooh, I think I would love Pittsburgh. I love bridges. :)

Pittsburgh is an interesting city. Spent some time there at CMU long ago.

But if I had to choose just one city in Penn., I think it might be certain parts of Philadelphia.

Fun post! I love these where you get to learn more about ya!

haha love the piercing answer. Hm...I'm too much a wimp to pain, to get any other piercing other than the 2 that I got when I was itty bitty!

aw! definitely love our kiddos' voices recorded on old videos and cassette tapes, when they were little!

Blessings & Aloha!
