Get to Know Me – 25 Questions Tag

DSCN0634

Currently it is fiscal year end at my work which means that my days are long and stress filled. By the time the weekend rolls around I just want to switch off my brain and relax. With that in mind, I wanted to do a fun and light hearted post. I did some digging and came up with this 25 Get to Know Me Questions tag. Unfortunately I don’t know who came up with this tag so I don’t know who to credit the idea with but I certainly didn’t come up with these questions. Have a read through if you’re interested, I would love to read your responses to these 25 questions. Leave a comment with your answers or if you have a blog leave me a link below to your posted responses. I am officially tagging YOU!

What is your middle name? My middle name is Alanna.

Share your favourite subject in high school. High school was a very long time ago for me! I don’t remember being especially enthusiastic about any of the subjects in school but if I had to pick a favourite I would say English. I wasn’t particularly into studying grammar but I always loved the assigned reading!

What is your favourite drink? Grapefruit Perrier. I drink way too many of these. I’m kind of obsessed with them right now.

What is your favourite song at the moment? A$AP Rocky – Fuckin Problems ft. Xavier Dunn

What would you name your children? Jonathan and I have baby names picked out for a boy and/or a girl but I want to keep them secret until we have our babies 😉

Have you participated in any sports? I used to play tennis when I was a teenager and really enjoyed it. Unfortunately I cannot play anymore. I broke my hand when I was 19 and have to be really  careful with it now.

What is your favourite book? I love to read and have read lots of books that I absolutely love so it’s hard to choose a favourite. Something that comes to mind right away is Pigs in Heaven by Barbara Kingsolver. I first read it when I was 10 and it’s one of those books that I’ve read over and over for years. I don’t know what it is I like so much about the story but it really appeals to me.

What is your favourite colour? Pink!

What is your favourite animal? I love cats.

What is your favourite perfume? I change my perfume seasonally and have a couple that I would call my favourites. I absolutely love Burberry Brit, Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb and Miss Dior Cherie.

What is your favourite holiday? Valentine’s Day!

On a scale of 1-10 rate your childhood. This is an odd question and I’m not sure how to answer it. I had a very nice childhood with a loving family and lots of great experiences. However no ones life is perfect and we learn a lot of tough life lessons during childhood so it seems inauthentic to say 10 out of 10. So let’s just say it was lovely and leave it at that without assigning a number.

Have you been out of the country? Yes.

Do you speak any different languages? Unfortunately no, I do not. My husband is fluent in Italian and we did live in Italy together years ago but I never learned beyond the basics. I was quite shy about speaking Italian with locals and anytime I did try they would just switch to English so I never really pushed myself to learn.

Do you have any siblings? I have an older sister.

What is your favourite store? J Crew

What is your favourite restaurant? Another question I can’t answer! I love food and I love eating out. I can’t narrow it down to just one!

Did you like school? Not really. I was pretty disengaged with the whole experience although I did manage to get good grades.

What are some of your favourite YouTubers? I don’t have a ton of time to watch YouTube so I don’t really keep up with anyone new on YouTube. I have been watching Tanya Burr and Anna Saccone for years and they are pretty much the only ones that I keep up with. I will go weeks without following and then I’ll binge watch a bunch of videos during a day of house cleaning.

What is your favourite movie? The Five Year Engagement. I love Jason Segel! I also love Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.

What are some of your favourite TV shows? This is really embarrassing to admit but I love watching The Bachelor. It’s so cheesy and dramatic but I just find it so entertaining. I will also never get tired of watching The Office.

PC or Mac? Neither-Linux! What can I say, I married a Web Developer!

What phone do you have? I have an iPhone 5 S.

How tall are you? I am 5’11

Do you have any pets? I have two cats. George is a kooky tabby who loves knocking over water glasses, walking back and forth across the pillows at night and coming up with creative places to sleep. Lou Lou is fluffy and white and a total tom boy. She loves chasing the red dot from the laser pointer, eating birds and being carried around.
