27 questions on my 35th birthday

I’m stealing this from Kristin’s blog. I love these “snapshots of yourself at a certain age” kinds of things! Also if anyone has any other random question to get me to 35, ask me in the comments 🙂

1. What Do You Do For A Living? 

I’m a Real Housewife of Palm Beach County, which is in no way glamorous or exciting. But I super love it. In a former life I worked in Medical Supplies. When I left, I joined the team at a digital scrapping site that recently closed. Now I do Creative Team work for Tiff of Inspired by Dominic Designs and Mandy King, I recently joined the Document Life Workshop Team as well. So basically I scrapbook. And do homey stuff. And cook. But none of it for a living, per se.

2. Who Do You Love? 

My family, friends, and the world in general. A cute bald guy in particular 🙂

3. Do You Think You Are a Good Person?

I try to be. I fall short on occasion, but that’s always the goal.

4. How Old Are You?

35. Today. It’s so odd because in my teenage years and early twenties, I was old for my age. But now I feel “behind” somehow.

5. Who’s Your Best Friend? 

Jason. Totally. I tell him things that I never thought I would tell anyone out loud. He and I are a great team, and that is something I never thought I’d have with anyone.  Also this sweet girl.

6. How Often Do You Laugh? 

Oh, all the time. Sometimes inappropriately. I often find myself saying “That was way funnier in my brain”. Like my HIPA jokes. Total fail every time, but I keep trying. It helps to live with someone who is hilarious in a quiet but wonderful way. He makes me laugh until my face hurts. Then, there’s my sister

7. What Makes You Smile? 

Kitties. Having a busy brain. Getting things done. Kitties. Commercials with kids and animals. Instagram. Working out. Oh wait, that’s more grimacing… Good books and good talks. Holding hands. Kitties.

8. Who’s Your Most Dangerous Enemy? 

Haha. Well if I answer this completely honestly I’ll have to say I have only really had two enemies in my life, not counting myself. One thing I have learned the hard way is that sometimes you’ll come across a person who just doesn’t like you for whatever reason. That’s just part of life. The end.

But I’m totally my own worst critic.

9. Where Do You Live? 

South Florida. Would love to move back to Tennessee one day.

10. Do You Think You’re Strong?

I think I used to be stronger because I didn’t have a choice. I’m working on strong this year.

11. What Was The Most Important Thing You’ve Done So Far? 

Helping to raise my sister. Most definitely.

12. What Was The Most Stupid Thing You’ve Done So Far?

The stripper. The boss. Oh wait, you mean done like done done? Hmmm… Not finishing my college education probably.

13. Do You Love Yourself? 

If I don’t, nobody will. So yes, absolutely.

14. What Is Your Favorite Word? 

Awesome. I so overuse that word. But coming from the Awesome Family, I kind of have to 🙂

15. When Was The Last Time You Cried?

Saturday night over something that so wasn’t worth it. But sometimes I spring a leak. It happens.

16. What Is The Best Thing That Could Happen To You Right Now? 
Winning the lottery or a visit from my sister.

17. Picture Yourself In 5 Years From Now 
These are always the toughest for me. Hopefully still happily married and living closer to my family.

18. Do You Regret Anything? 

I try not to live with regrets. I think every screw up has had far reaching consequences that have landed me where I am today. I have made many many mistakes, but hopefully I’ve learned from them.

19. What’s The First Thing You Do In The Morning? 

Huddle up with Jason and pretend it’s the weekend for just ten more minutes…

20. What Are You Thinking Just Before Going To Bed? 

I always listen to audiobooks as I go to sleep. Have done ever since I was a tiny kid, only they were records back then. You know, in the Dark Ages. I have all the Stephanie Plum books in one long playlist on my iPod, so I just listen to them over and over.

21. What Was The Highest Point You’ve Ever Been To?

The mountains in California between L. A. and Bakersfield. I’m pretty sure that’s it. I’ve never been in any super tall buildings that I recall.

22. If There’s One Thing In Your Life You Want To Change Right Now, What Is It?

The IRS realizing they’ve made a mistake and we really don’t owe them a big stack of cash.

23. What Are You Proud Of?

Finding creative things to do that I love. My 25 year old self thought she didn’t have a creative bone in her body. Being a much better stepmother than I was 5 years ago. Being a good wife. My 25 year old self thought marriage was the devil.

24. Sum Up Your Life In One Sentence

Enjoy what you can while you still can and try to be a good person while doing it.

25. Name The Thing That Annoys You The Most

The sound of silverware in plates. It makes my teeth hurt. And people who pee on the toilet seat and leave it there. Also drivers who make turns before looking out for pedestrians.

26. Do You Have Secrets?

Of course.

27. What Makes You Laugh?

Jason. Kitties. The “Take me to Tortilla Land” song they play in Winn Dixie. Jon Stewart.

And one final question
Are You Happy?

So very happy. To a ridiculous degree.
