100 Random Facts About You Swap

Good Morning Partners!!  Here are my answers for the 100 Random Facts About You swap!  It sure was fun answering these questions :)

1.      Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?
I sleep with my closet door closed but my husband’s is usually open.  I try to keep his closed too though so the cat doesn’t get in there and tear up all his shoelaces.
2.      Favourite pizza topping?
I really just like extra cheese. Kind of “cheesy” right??
3.      Do you sleep with your covers on or off?
I always like to have covers. Even in this hot Texas summer.  I almost always have a blanket wrapped around me when I’m watching TV on the couch too.
4.      Have you ever stolen a street sign before?
No, never.  I know people do this but I don’t really understand why…
5.      Do you like to use post-it notes?
I have post it notes stuck all over my desk at work but I never go back and reference them.  Then they just make a mess!  I guess since they end up being nothing but clutter I’m going to have to say no – I don’t like to use post-it notes (even though I use a ton of them!)
6.      Do you cut out coupons but then never use them?
All the time.  I always print out the craft store coupons for the week, but half the time I don’t end up using them so I have a purse full of expired coupons.
7.      Do you wear nail polish?
Usually only on my toes.  Every once and a while I will paint my fingernails.
8.      Do you have freckles?
Some.  Not the cute kind on your nose and cheeks, just random freckles here and there.
9.      Do you always smile for pictures?
I find that my serious face is kind of goofy (or at least I think it’s goofy) so I always smile when I’m getting my picture taken. When I got my bridal portraits done the photographer kept trying to get me to be serious, but I couldn’t do it – I kept laughing.  I’m not meant to be serious I guess!

10.  What is your biggest pet peeve?
Being lied to or manipulated, especially when it’s totally obvious.
11.  Do you ever avoid the cracks on the pavement when you walk?
Not since I was a little kid.
12.  Have you ever peed in the woods?
13.  Do you own any pets?
I just got a cat about a month ago.  She’s a little calico named Sarah.  I never thought I would want a cat (we always had dogs growing up), but I’m totally in love with her already!
14.  Do you ever dance even if there’s no music playing?
15.  Prefer to write in pen or pencil?
Pen I think.  I really just use whatever is lying around, and I mostly only have pens.
16.  Play any instruments?
I played the violin in middle and high school, and took piano lessons when I was a kid.  I haven’t played either in years though.
17.  What size is your bed?
It’s a queen.
18.  What is your Song of the week?
You know, I usually have one, but this week I’m kind of sick of everything I’ve heard recently.  I’m in “song of the week” limbo L
19.  Is it okay for guys to wear pink?

20.  Do you still watch cartoons?
I really don’t care for most cartoons anymore. 
21.  What’s your least favourite movie?
Idiocracy.  If you’ve never seen it, don’t.  Wanted is equally bad.
22.  Where would you bury hidden treasure if you had some?
I never really put much thought into this… I guess my back yard?  That seems a little too obvious though doesn’t it?  How about under my porch in the back yard!
23.  What do you drink with dinner?
Water, soda or wine, depending on the meal.

Nope – it’s pretty obvious that I’m a white girl.

26.  What movies could you watch over and over and still love?
Up, Wall-E, Beauty and the Beast, Gone with the Wind, Bridges of Madison County, The Natural, Paint Your Wagon, The Sting, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.  There are so many movies I like watching over and over, but my husband only likes to watch movies once so I don’t get to see my favorites all that often anymore.
27.  Last person you kissed/kissed you?
My husband.
28.  Were you ever a girl scout/guide?
