Hi friends, I thought it might be fun to jump on the TMI Tag bandwagon. I’ve loved reading some of your answers and figured this could be a neat way for you guys to get to know me a little bit better.
1: What are you wearing?
I am currently wearing black athletic shorts, a navy shirt and an old Price Choppers sweater. For those not familiar with Price Choppers, it was a discount grocery store here in Canada that has been converted into a Freshco. I worked at Price Choppers when I was 14 for a few years 🙂
2: Ever been in love?
I’ve been very much in love for nearly five years now 🙂 I met my husband whilst studying Sociology at University in my second year and we have been attached by the hip ever since. He’s my best friend and I feel incredibly blessed to have him as my husband.
3: Ever had a terrible breakup?
My husband is who I refer to as my first true boyfriend, so no, I do not feel I have had any terrible breakups. Now if we refer to friendship breakups then yes I definitely have had a terrible experience.
4: How tall are you?
I’m 5ft 3 and a half, and yes the half an inch does count 😉
5: How much do you weigh?
I stopped weighing myself 3 years ago and do not intend to start again. I could stand to lose some weight but right now i’m fine with how I look.
6: Any tattoos?
Yes, I have two tattoo’s. One on my neck and one on my left wrist.
7: Any piercings?
I have had many piercings in my day. I have had my ear lobes pierced three times (two of the holes on each lobe are still able to have earrings inserted). I have had my belly button pierced, which I loved but took out for personal reasons. I have my tregus on my left side pierced and have had my helux (sp?) on my right side pierced but it was the most painful and nasty thing to heal so I eventually took it out. I also had my nose pierced but took it out on my wedding day and decided I didn’t want to put it back in 🙂
Had to Google this in order to figure out what to write haha! I suppose ‘OTP’ means ‘one true pairing’ and if that is the case and I’m not just an idiot making stuff up then I would pick Ross and Rachel from Friends. They’re each others lobsters, need I say more?
9: Favorite show?
Friends. This show will always be my favorite show, I find the writers to be absolutely brilliant.
10: Favorite bands?
My taste in music strongly depends on what mood I am feeling that day. Some days I can listen to Rise Against all day long, then the next day I might just want Vitamin String Quartet. But bands that I enjoy listening to frequently would be Mumford and Sons, Holly Henry, Adele, Florence and the Machine etc.
11: Something you miss?
I miss my university days, I felt a sort of independence and newness that I haven’t felt since. It was an amazing bunch of years and it makes me sad that it went by so fast. I wish that I would have enjoyed my time more and really let all new experiences in. I wish that I would have fought less with my friends and roommates and studied harder. I wish that I wouldn’t have been so concerned as to what people thought of me and just went for it. I am eternally grateful that I was able to meet my husband in University and have those memories intertwined with memories of the rawness and total bliss of starting to date him.
12: Favorite song?
I don’t think I could ever be able to pick a favorite song. Marry me by Train will always stay close to my heart as it was mine and Benny’s first dance song played at our wedding.
13: How old are you?
I’m 24, and will be 25 in January.
14: Zodiac sign?
I’m a Capricorn.
15: Quality you look for in a partner?
Loyalty and trust. I’m sure everyone says that but my parents had such a bitter divorce and an unhappy marriage because they lacked those qualities in each other. I could go on and on saying he has to be funny, charming, cute, smart etc. But in all honesty I need to trust my partner 100% and I want a man that is loyal to me. A man that even when hes angry with me still comes home at night, doesn’t seek out revenge or doubt his choices in choosing to spend a life with me.
16: Favorite Quote?
It is always darkest before the brightest bright. To me this just means things will always go in a continuous circle. There will always be pain and hardship. But we need to go through the rough times in order to fully appreciate the good we have been blessed with.
17: Favorite actor?
Not sure that I have a favourite actor to be honest.
18: Favorite color?
Blue, it’s always been blue and will likely stay blue. I think it’s the colour that shows the most emotion. Both happiness and sorrow can be found in blue to me.
19: Loud music or soft?
Depends on my mood.
20: Where do you go when you’re sad?
Usually online to write, or i take a really long hot shower.
21: How long does it take you to shower?
If I have to wash and condition my hair and shave my legs then I can be in the shower upwards of 30-40 minutes. I usually will choose to have a bath if I need to shave though, which means I can stay soaking for more than an hour, especially if I have a lush bath. Which is pure bliss if I do say so myself.
22: How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
I’m pretty low maintenance to be honest, I usually throw my hair into a pony, put my glasses or contacts in depending on what I am doing that day and get dressed and do my teeth. Maybe 10-20 minutes.
23: Ever been in a physical fight?
Once- with my sister. She stole my remote, I had black out rage. I’m pretty sure I was pmsing and going through crazy teenage hormones haha
24: Turn on?
Make me laugh and keep a bit of mystery.
25: Turn off?
26: The reason I started Blogging?
My husband works as a nurse in the operating room and is often staying late or being called in to help with various surgeries, so I was left alone a lot of the time. I wanted an outlet to feel busy and to feel like I was doing something that I found interesting.
I have OCD so a lot of my anxieties are intertwined with compulsions. I am afraid of diseases and those I love getting sick and dying. I have had these fears since my parents divorced when I was 12.
28: Last thing that made you cry?
Not sure to be honest, I think when I was going through my ‘girl time’ last month. I always get way too emotional at that time lol
29: Last time you said you loved someone?
Not even an hour ago when my husband left for work.
30: Meaning behind your Blog Name?
Because I am a nurses wife, I wanted something that would represent not only myself but my greatest friend Benny 🙂
31: Last book you read?
One of my sisters books, and I can’t actually think of the name of it at the moment! How terrible!
32: The book you’re currently reading?

34: Last person you talked to?
35: The relationship between you and the person you last texted?

36: Favorite food?
