Bits of Sweetness: Tell me about yourself!

Tell me about yourself!



Before I forget!!! I had the chance to guest post on a blog the other day!
If you'd like a super easy recipe for body scrub(we're talking 3 ingredients!),
 as well as a great "recipe"for puff paint for kids,
go check out the post, and don't forget to say "hi" to the sweet
blogger, Kerry! What an honor to get to guest post on her site!

Now, back to this post :)

One of my good (blog) friends Kayla tagged me (and anyone else who wanted to do it!)
in Tell Me About Yourself where, just for fun you share seven random facts about yourself.
I love her idea of, rather than tagging seven specific people, 
it is opened up to anyone who wants to do it! 
I'd love to hear your seven things so feel free to grab the image (right-click on it, copy image location or url, then open up the image upload icon and upload it by the url)
So, my randoms.....

1. I'm not really a huge chocolate fan. I like it ok, but during *that* time it's never what sounds good.
Also, it's usually not what I crave. (with the exception of Twix & Kit Kats) I love candy though! Swedish fish, Twizzlers (especially the grape-flavored peel kind), pop rocks, peach rings (or any candy rings), Starburst, Skittles cores- yep. All my favorites.

2. I haven't ever read any books by Jane Austen. Really! That and a ton of other classics. Someday! 
Also amazing are the amount of movies I've never seen. (Hey! I was a Pastor's kid! Lol)
You'd probably laugh if I listed all the ones I have on my to-watch list.
Someday I'll get to them all! (Some are Disney's Hercules, Dirty Dancing,  Breakfast at Tiffany's,
Lilo & Stitch, all the Harry Potter ones (I've only seen 2) and a bunch I can't think of. Call me deprived if you'd like ;-) )

3. I used to be all about things happening whenever. Not really having a schedule.
And it not mattering if things were in order around the house. But the more time goes on, the more 
I find myself craving some order. Not in an obsessed way. Just appreciating it more.
Appreciating getting the house clean (and making the effort to do so).
Loving not having (so many) boxes of random random stuff all over.
Not thinking it such a bad thing to get up semi-early intentionally on some days
just to be able to enjoy the morning. 

4. I am random. And easily distracted. Proof of this the other day: I was talking to my mom on the phone while shopping at Target.(does that ever work though?! Talking on the phone and being able to clearly think about what you are doing in the store?! Yeah... ;-) ) I was telling her how easily distracted I can get, especially in a store, while on the phone,and kid you not, mid-sentence said, "Ohh my!!!Those shoes!!! They're red! With bows!" Totally laughed at myself later. What was I saying? Oh yes. How easily distracted I get ;-)
{these were the culprit for my distraction!! You can find them here.}

5. I don't do sports. Really. I am so uncoordinated, I have to literally think about trying to hit the ball. And... it still doesn't work! That's just hitting the ball though! Aiming is another story entirely! Usually doesn't happen unless I amazingly manage to make contact with the ball! Can't have both here for this girl! I am the one who totally proves all those wrong who say, "Oh but if you just had enough practice..." Ha! You can try. But I also don't care if I win or lose- either way I have fun :) I would much rather just watch and enjoy the game though, cheering everyone on!

6. Speaking of sports, I grew up in Salt Lake, home of "the greatest snow on earth" (amazing powder!!) and yet I have never been skiing or snowboarding! I wimped out on a great snowboarding opportunity too. Shame on me!! Someday I want to!!!!
{I miss seeing this often! The lights. The gorgeous mountains. The snow. Ahh...}


7. Dream car? Shelby Mustang. Ahh..... Proof in the below photo (which, is also from my last blog post)
Actually though considering reliability and overall maintenance, I'd probably get this instead.
Hondas are my fave, hands down. 



So! That is a little bit of me! Now what about you?
Feel free to post and let me know you did a post! I would love to see it! :)
Or, just comment below with some fun random facts about yourself!

  3. I wanted a 65 Red Mustang when I was in high school.  Now I'd prefer the newer model!  
    Target and Phones do not work at all!  I am as easily distracted too. LOL

  13. I had to look at the post after I'd published it to see what you were talking about! Someone got smart with their page coding!! lol! It was fine when I first published the post! Saving it should do the trick though ;-) I will rent Dirty Dancing lol. I have heard quotes from it so many times! SLC IS awesome! I miss it a lot! Although, I think I also miss the people that were there too but now most of them have moved on so it'd be a lot different. But, still, the beauty of the place and all the things to do.. ahh...
