my first tag!

I love tags (almost as much as giveaways!), so imagine my delight when I saw that Emily had tagged me! Even though that was over two weeks ago, I needed a little fun today. I know everyone says Mondays are bad, but my Monday is Tuesday. Not sure why, but it is. Thus, the lighthearted, fun tag questions. :)

1. High heels or boots? I have never owned a pair of heels, even though they're so dang cute and feminine, but I'm more of a flats/Sperry's kind of girl anyway.

2. What time did you get up this morning? My alarm is broken, so I got up at 8:30. It didn't help that the sun wasn't out (and hasn't been out for two days!).

3. What was the last movie you saw at the theater? I've been to a few movies this summer, but the last one was "Charlie St. Cloud" with good ol' Sam. Really good movie, by the way!

4. What is your maiden name? Um, so not telling. Plus, I'm not married yet, so it's not legal, and for real-life friends that know it...don't you dare tell! 

5. What is your favorite TV show? Since we don't have cable, we're limited to network shows, which are just as bad. I'm a sucker for a medical and crime/mystery show, so I could tell you all about Chuck, Castle, House, etc. That is, if you want to know...

6. What do you usually have for breakfast? Mama loves her a toasted bagel, so we usually have the same. Occasionally, we'll get cereal, yogurt, egg sandwich and the like, but it's few and far between.

7. What is your middle name? Believe it or not, my middle name is Catherine, not Anne like most people think. I have a 23 letter name, ya'll. It's a doozy of a name to write, let me tell you.

8. What food do you dislike? I don't like mushrooms, mostly because of the texture, but other than that, I'm not picky. I'm not a big fan of creamy white things, though.

9. What is your favorite CD at the moment? What's a CD? Kidding, but I really don't listen to CD's. Mixpod is my very best friend, so if I need some music, I'll pull it up on the computer, and sing away!

10. What characteristic do you despise? Fake things, people who make their life sound perfect, and the like. Makes me feel like a freak for saying something bad about what happened during the day.

11. Favorite clothing? Jeans all the way! I can't wait to get a pair of cowboy boots in the fall and wear them with my skinny's. Although, I do love my summer dresses; there is nothing quite like it, really!

12. Anywhere in the world on vacation? No clue! I haven't been given that opportunity, so I don't know how I'd react. Overseas, definitely, but as to where...I'll have to think about it!

13. Are you an organized person? I'm more OCD than anything, with a tad bit of perfectionist thrown in there. I keep things neat, but that's about it.

14. Where would you retire to? Again, I'm not there yet. If I had the choice, I'd retire close to family, but in a nice house by some body of water. 

15. What was your most recent memorable birthday? My 15th was pretty memorable, seeing as I got a camera (as you all know) and a car (don't freak out! it's the family old 16 year old one that's still alive and kicking, but that could change any day). 

16. What are you going to do when you finish this?  Whenever I get the chance, duh! :) Really, I have no idea...

17. Furthest place you have ever been to? I"m a poor, trip-deprived girl, so the only places I've been are South Carolina and Virginia, our neighboring states. 

18. Person you wish you could meet?  Like EmilyEden, and Moriah, I really want to meet you readers!

19. When is your birthday? June 19th, and I love having it then!

20. Are you a morning person or a night person? Night owl all the way. Mornings aren't my friend, and I don't even speak to anyone right away, but I'm chatty as all get out at night!

21. What is your shoe size? Depends on the brand, but I'm usually a five or six. Mama wears the same size, so it's fun to wear her shoes and vice versa...

22. Do you own any animals? Proud owner of a orange tabby, Butter. 

23. Any news you'd like to share? Um, no. Wait, maybe? Depends on what exciting is to you...

24. When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up? A mommy. I know, that's the typical answer, but it's true.

25. What is your favorite flower? I love the smell of gardenia's, but I really like to look at a unusual flower. 

26. What would you currently like to be when you grow up? I'm so undecided it's not even funny. I used to think I wanted to go into the medical field, then I thought I wanted to be a teacher, and now I'm toying with the idea of being a teacher for deaf children. I have no idea where that came from...

{For some reason, question #27 is missing…not sure why}

28. If you were a crayon, what color would you be? Something with a lot of different shades, that's for sure. Maybe like a purple, since it can be a light lavender or deep plum.

29. How is the weather right now? Dark! The rain stopped this morning, but it's back tomorrow. :(

30. Last person you spoke to on the phone? I do believe it was Mama, but that doesn't count. I'm pretty sure the last non-relative I talked to was Emmylou.

31. Favorite drink? Dr. Pepper all the way! Although, Frappes from Mickey D's and Java Chillers from Sonics are a close second.

32. Favorite restaurant? We rarely go out to eat, but when we do, I like Rucker John's.

33. Hair color? Brown/Red. At least I have pretty hair to make up for all the grief it gives me... :)

34. What was your favorite toy as a child? Babydolls, babydolls, babydolls! I still have them all stuffed in my closet, awaiting my daughter's little hands to dress them.

35. Spring, summer, fall, or winter? Oh, tough question. Even though fall leads to winter, I love it. 

36. Chocolate or vanilla? Dude, chocolate! I like no other sweets, actually.

37. Coffee or tea? Another tough one! I don't like either of them that much, but I'm going to have to go with tea, that way I can have hot or iced.

38. Wish you were still young? I am young, people! Unless 15 is the new 30 or something...

39. Do you want to get married? No duh. And have a houseful of kids running around in diapers...

40. When was the last time you cried? I teared up today, readers. In my defense, I had something in my eye.

41. What is under your bed? Just a few cat hair tumbleweeds. Butter has decided that under the bed is a great place to bathe since the vacuum is too big to fit under there.

42. What did you do last night? Watched TV, read in bed while listening to the rain, and slept. I'm a real party animal, huh?

43. What are you afraid of? Sleepless nights and the like. I'm really working on praying when I'm scared and learning to go to God, since He'll always be there.

44. Salty or sweet? Both! That might be why I love chocolate covered pretzels sooo much!

45. Describe yourself in 10 words... I'm a passionate, emotional believer in Christ that happens to live in an unGodly world. Okay, so that's 13 words, but I love it.

46. How many years at your current job? If you consider being a student a job (which it is, all you naysayers.), then 10 years. And, still 6 years ahead of me. Why must I torture myself and be smart?! :)
47. Favorite day of the week? Friday. Hooray for three day weekends!

48. Favorite movie?  Honestly, if we're talking about children's movies, I love the Toy Story ones, along with Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. If we're not talking about kid's movies, forget everything I said.

49. Have you ever had a crush on anyone? Again, no duh! I mean, who doesn't think someone looks handsome. I say that about my little bro all the time.

50. Do you like finding out all this stuff about your friends? Like it? More like love it! Knowing the little things about each other makes for great inside jokes...and a close friendship. Let's not forget about that.

I'm supposed to tag people, but I'd love to know all of your answers! If you want to do this tag, leave a comment so I can see it. Please and thank you!
