If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you may have gleaned a few tidbits of info about who I am and what my life is like. I hope so, as I try to be open and honest in my posts. 🙂 But there are some things that you may not know yet. And if you just recently started following “Out of the Mud and Mire,” you may have a few questions about me as the author.
So here is a list of “All About Me” questions, along with my answers, to help you get to know me a little better. If you have a question that isn’t listed here, please feel free to leave it in the comments! ❤
1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
My Mom named me after the singer Crystal Gayle. 🙂
2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
A week or two ago when my friend posted an article that was heart-wrenching.
3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING?
It’s okay, I think it can be pretty when I really try hard.
4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT?
Hmmm, I’d never really thought about it! I like turkey the best I think, but it has to be paired with provolone cheese. 😉
5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS?
6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU?
It depends on what this other person is like. If they wanted a friend who is out-going and who loves going to different places, I might not want to be my friend. But if the other person is looking for someone who is quiet but sweet and who can at times be silly, then I’d be friends with me.
7. DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT?
Naaaaa, only when I’m mad, and then I feel really bad about it, lol.
8. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS?
Yes I do!
9. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP?
Probably not…but if my Hubby or a friend wanted me to jump with them, I might scrounge up the courage to do it.
10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL?
I don’t really eat a lot of cereal – but I do put granola with almonds into my Vanilla Bean flavored yogurt.
11. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF?
Yes, it’s easier to get them off that way, and easier to put them back on!
12. DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG?
I don’t see myself as being a very strong person, but my husband and my family tell me that I am. I just know that I have only gotten this far because of God’s strength…and it will be His strength that continues to get me through each day. So I guess I am strong in God’s strength. 🙂
13. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM?
Okay, have you ever tried those Ben and Jerry’s “Core” ice creams, where in the center there’s a huge dollop of some kind of goodness? I am in love with the Salted Caramel Core flavor.
14. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE?
If they look friendly and approachable or not.
15. RED OR PINK?
I would say pink, but it has to be a pale, understated pink instead of a dark pink.
16. WHAT IS THE LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF?
Right now it’s my body – I would feel much better if I could lose a few pounds and get in shape. But I’m trying!
17. WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST?
I miss my mom and dad and brother and grand-mom, who I moved an hour away from when I got married. I know it’s not very far, but it’s still difficult to get down to see them. We do talk on the phone often, for which I am grateful. And I’m grateful for my family-in-law who live close to me (my mom-and dad-in-law live only four blocks from us).
18. WHAT IS THE SPARK FEATURE THAT HAS HELPED YOU THE MOST?
Okay, I’m not sure what this question is asking for. I got this list from sparkpeople.com, so maybe that’s what it’s referring to with the “spark feature.” But I’m not a part of that forum so I can’t answer the question. 🙂
19. WHAT COLOR SHOES ARE YOU WEARING?
I’m wearing slippers right now, and they are pink (a pale, understated pink) and white.
20. WHAT WAS THE LAST THING YOU ATE?
Well, I don’t know if this counts because it’s a drink, but I was just sipping on a Starbucks iced caramel latte. Yum!
21. WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW?
I don’t have any music on right now. I know many people find music helpful when they’re working on a project, but when I work on something – like this blog post – I find quietness to be more conducive to quality writing. 🙂
22. IF YOU WERE A CRAYON, WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE?
I would be a light teal or a sea-foam green…or maybe even a pretty coral
23. FAVORITE SMELLS?
I like the smell in the air after it rains, the smell of coffee, and the smell of dinner that’s been cooking in the crock-pot all day.
24. WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU TALKED TO ON THE PHONE?
My Hubby! He called to let me know he was on his way home from work.
25. MOUNTAIN HIDEAWAY OR BEACH HOUSE?
Mountain hideaway – there’s just something about the mountains that are so majestic and peaceful. I’d like there to be some kind of pond or lake, as well. 🙂
Thanks so much for reading! And as I mentioned, you can leave any questions that you might have for me in the comments section. Stay tuned for Part 2!
