Me, Myself, and I

It's time for my favorite link up party with Breanna, Shane, Kristen, Danielle, Jenna, Amanda, and Chelsea!

FYI, I just started following Chelsea's blog Adventures With My Enemy Melanoma and I think she has a great message.  You should definitely go and check it out!

1) When you're feeling down, what do you do to pick yourself up?

When I'm feeling down my favorite pick-me-up is getting outside into the sunshine, listening to music on an upbeat playlist, and reminding myself that in the scheme of things "its not that bad."

2)  If you had to live in a different time period which would you prefer?

See... I would fit in just fine!

I initially thought I would probably choose the 1950's.  Love the clothes, love the music, and love that it seems like a simpler time.  I even love to cook and clean!  But then I started thinking about the oppression of the 1950's housewife and started to have some second thoughts... so can I choose 1950's without all the parts I don't like?

3)  What is the most creative Halloween costume you've ever worn?

Hmmm... I don't know that I have ever had a creative costume, but I did always have amazing costumes.  My mom is very talented at sewing so my costumes were always handmade.  One costume that stands out as being especially memorable was the year that I dressed as Belle in her yellow ball gown.  My mom spent weeks making this costume for me and I remember feeling like a real princess when I went trick-or-treating that night.

4)  Five weird things about you we wouldn't know without being told?

1. I have a complete nighttime routine that consists of making sure all the doors are locked, checking the cats' food and water, brushing my teeth, washing my face, putting a glass of water by the bed, straightening the covers, and applying chapstick.  OCD?  Probably.  ;)

2. I don't like raw tomatoes, but I like cooked tomatoes {This one is Caleb's idea... he thinks its strange.}

3. I could eat corndogs every.single.day.  My very favorite are the Morningstar veggie corndogs.  I have to limit myself by buying them only on select occasions because I would eat them nonstop.  

4. I hate the sound of feet dragging on carpet.  Its like nails on a chalk board.  It makes me cringe.  It gives me the shivers.  Weird, I know.

5. I have a collection of antique ladies makeup compacts.  I currently have over a hundred {my grandmother has around a thousand... maybe more!} and I have been collecting them since I was young.  I showcase them in cases in my living room.

5)  What would you tell your 16-year-old self?

I would tell my 16 year old self not to worry about fitting in so much and to hang on because  in a couple years she will be starting college thats when the good stuff happens.  She will figure out she has met the man of her dreams, make true friends, and things will end up just as they should.
