If You’re Awesome & You Know It

One of my all-time favorite blogger friends, Alyssa, tagged me with this Awesome Blogger survey. I like this one because I don’t have to come up with random facts about myself.

The random question are already provided.

This may be outing myself as a huge nerd, but I remember when surveys were the cool thing to do on Myspace. Yes, Myspace was cool at one point in time. Don’t deny it :)

Although times have changed and thinking of Myspace makes me cringe, I do still love me a random survey :)

Here she goes!

What is your favorite cartoon character? Remember a while back when everyone was changing their Facebook profile pictures to pictures of their doppleganger? (Mom, that means a celebrity that looks like you.) My doppelganger and favorite cartoon character is Velma from Scooby Doo. Aren’t we so similar?


What is your favorite thing to photograph? I have no pets or children, so I love to photograph my cereal. It’s a weird thing. Just go with it.

What is your favorite thing to cook? I leave the cooking to Cory and the baking to me. I love baking cookies!

What is your favorite way to exercise? I enjoy a good sweat from a cardiovascular exercise, but I truly enjoy strength workouts. Playing around is also a favorite way to burn some cals 😉

What is your favorite movie? Shawshank Redemption, hands down.

What is your favorite article of clothing? Dresses, dresses, dresses! I don’t have a favorite pair of jeans or a shirt that I wear every third day because I love it so much, but I love any event that gives me an excuse to wear a dress.

What is your favorite flower? I really love a daisy :)


What is your favorite breakfast? Um…

What is your favorite book(s)?

1. The Other Boleyn Girl, Phillipa Gregory

2. The Help, Kathryn Stockett

3. The Kite Runner, Khaled Hosseini

Now here’s who I want to fill out this survey!

Amanda @ Running With Spoons

Courtney @ Sweet Tooth Sweet Life

Clare @ Fitting It All In

Meg @ Sunshine ‘n Spice

    Fun! We share some favorite books! The Help was SOOOOOO good. And I love the kite runner too, oh man that book made me cry so much. I love all the dresses :)

    Proof I’m old(er): I remember doing these surveys PRE-myspace…via EMAIL!! Filling them out and sending it on to 175 friends in my contacts list circa 1999. I know, right?

    Oh my word! I love love love that you explained doppleganger to your mother. So adorable!!

    Also- I should win some sort of award for reading and commenting on this post WHILE walking to work. And more so for not tripping or walking into any tree brançhes. (It has happened)

    Also, I don’t know thaþ I have a doppleganger. At least not a celebrity one. People tell me ALL the TIME that I look “exactly like” their cousin/sister’s boyfriend’s friend/neighbor from 1988.

      Oh my GOSH – I remember email surveys! I think I had 15 people in my contact list – and they blocked me because they were so tired of reading emails about my favorite color, who I have a crush on, and my favorite show on TGIF :)

      And yes, you absolutely deserve a round of applause for commenting on a post on your phone while walking to work and NOT tripping. How do you do it, woman?!

      PS – I laughed out loud at your doppleganger comment :)

    I love the Notebook. I could watch it a hundred times over and over. I am such a sap!

    I have been told a lot that I look like Kelly Kapowski from saved by the bell (tiffani amber theissan)

    you are awesome and you know it girl!!

  4. says

    Aw so much fun. I love getting to know you better! I think I have too many favorite movies to count haha. And, I don’t think I look like any celebrities. I’ve tried one of those doppelganger sites and for some reason they always come up with someone that is foreign or of another race. Weird :).

    I adore dresses too–especially since they make deciding what to wear in the morning so simple. Just toss it on, and you’re ready to go!

    I was told the other night that I look like Sarah Palin…?! I don’t see it but whatever.

    I love cereal x 10023502.

    I saw your blog from yesterday about girl I am in lurrveee with your dress. Seriously you look beautiful. You, me and Alyssa can be twinnies because I would live in my life in dresses if possible. They make running skirts…why not dresses?

  7. says

    loveee this girl :) eeks! oh yeah and def exciting for DRESSES! how fun :) My fav movie (one of them at least) is the Wedding Date haha. xo

  8. says

    I’m not exactly sure who my doppelganger is? I’ve been told I look the Fluer from the Harry Potter movies, if you know who I’m talking about?, and also Claire Danes but I think people are being really really nice when they say that! My favorite movie is probably The Holiday:) I love me some rom coms and I can watch this over and over!
