Wordful Wednesday

I thought I would mix things up a little bit today - get excited everyone!

First of all, for all my local readers - are there any?? - I want to encourage you to come to the Waco Community Hymn Sing this Sunday at the Ferrell Center!  I'm super excited about it because Stephen will be playing guitar!  It's almost like he's a famous person - I'm so proud of him and all the work he's putting into it!  It's sure to be an awesome time, so come on out if you are able!
Second of all, one of my bloggy friends tagged me to answer some questions, so I thought I'd give it a go!  Fun right?  And for all of you who have been missing seeing Josie pictures here - today is your day, because there are lots more fitting pictures of her than there are of me :).  

What's the best decision you've ever made?
I would have to say applying for a student worker job at the Baylor Fine Arts Library, because that is how I ended up meeting my very best friends and my husband! I never would have guessed it at the time that it would be such a life changing decision...

My old work crew.
What's your favorite place for daydreaming?
I "daydream" all the time, any time any place.  I call it "thinking about things" even though in actuality it is really just spacing out.   Staring out the window has always been the best for thinking about things though.

When do you feel most confident?
I guess when I'm hanging around with my best friends, because they don't care if I act like a major doofus.

What's your most embarrassing moment?
I can't pinpoint one exact moment - I guess that's a good thing right?  I must get over embarrassment pretty well.  Or I just block it out.  I did used to fall down in high school a lot.  Like the completely wipe out, you're lying on the floor wondering how you got there kind of falling down.  That was pretty embarrassing.


What do you think about before going to sleep?
Just whatever random thoughts float through my head. I don't actually know!

Somehow I don't think a lot of sleeping got done here...

What are the most important things in your life?
My husband and my wonderful friends and family.

What would you do if you were invisible for a day?
 I'll admit it - I'd be super nosy and spy on everyone I know.

Super spies!  More like super fabulous!

What bad habit are you having a hard time breaking?
Forgetting to charge my phone/forgetting where my phone is/forgetting to take my phone off of silent and missing all my calls.

 I think I am at least able to answer more calls on my phone than Josie does on hers

Who would you like to change places with for half a day?
My niece Josie.  She's 2 and has all the best toys. Wouldn't it be great if all you had to do all day was play?

Who was the last person to make you laugh?
I can't remember for sure.  It might have been the ladies teasing each other at work this morning that did it.  Or maybe it was Stephen.  And my friend Katie always makes me laugh...

 Happy girl!!
How long could you go without talking?
For ages!  I don't mind talking or anything, but when I lived by myself I was pretty silent at home. I would get on the phone with someone in the middle of the afternoon and realize I hadn't said a word all day.

This has nothing to do with the question, I just think it's a funny picture!

What makes you mad without fail?
Being bossed around

Josie, are you mad?

What is your most bizarre habit?
I hum random tunes when I'm working on something that really requires my concentration.  Oh and maybe even weirder than that, I always put my finger in the tags on stuffed animals, clothing labels, etc.  I even have this dress that has a sort of thick lace layer on it, and I put my fingers in the wholes on that.  I feel like I can't wear it without looking like a nutcase. I have been doing this since I was a baby! I feel like those taggy blankets were invented for me.

That's me in the pink glasses
I was probably thinking about taggies in this photo...

What is something most people would find surprising to learn about you?
I have no idea... My family raised orphaned baby ducks on more than one occasion?  I swam on a synchronized swimming team when I was little for six months (had to quit because it was too hard/I was too lazy)?  My great uncle was governor of Iowa?  Is any of that surprising or just random facts?

Synchro photos of me are a little hard to come by, however synchro photos of my sister are not!

What's on your night stand?
I'm not going to go look for sure, because it will be depressing, but I'm sure all of this is on there:
- half finished books
- water glass
- roll of toilet paper (for tissues)
- lamp
- ball of yarn
- little stuffed animals
- more half finished books
- headbands
- dust

No night stands on the beach!

If you were three inches taller...?
I would hope it would be torso height, my legs are long enough as is thank you!  I actually was about a centimeter taller than I am now in my junior year of high school, since I had a back brace that kept my spine straight (scoliosis!).  However, once I got to stop wearing it I shrank again.

Eat your breakfast Bageera and you can grow big and tall like me!

How can you tell when Fall was truly here?
When every restaurant/coffee shop has something pumpkin flavored on the menu, and when all the home decor stores smell like cinnamon.

Best way to wrap your guy around your little finger?
I can do it just by being my wonderful self!       
So there you have it!  Most of the bloggers I know just have personal (and in some cases invite only blogs) so I don't want to put direct links to those,  so all my bloggy friends, if you'd like to answer some questions feel free! It's fun! Don't forget to add some pictures!

What an awesome post!

What I Did Today said...

Yay! So much fun to read your answers and get to know you better. Maybe I should do an adult-sized taggie blanket for my next giveaway? Hahaha! Too funny. And is Bageera yours? That is, hands down, one of the best cat names I've ever come across. Josie is adorable and I really like that last picture of you at the ocean. You are awesome!

Wow! So many pictures of Josie! And even one of synchro, so I have to say, best post ever.

But for the record - Josie is only 2 1/2, not 3.

So fun to read your answers and your photos made it extra special! :-)

I am going to answer a few of these questions in tomorrow's post.

Thank you for inviting us to do so. :-)
