Because I'm in the mood to have a little fun

Ten random things about me:

1. I was named for my Nana.
2. I love lima beans.
3.  Sometimes, when I’m drying my hair upside-down, I turn the heat onto my toes. They’re usually cold.
4. My dream day involves outlet shopping, french fries and a movie in the theater.
5. I played water polo in college, and since then have loved the smell of chlorine. And beer.
6. The Cracker Barrel is one of my favorite restaurants.
7. I talk out loud to myself all the time.
8. My favorite place in the world to be is at the beach. There is just something about the ocean.
9. I once jumped from a waterfall in Costa Rica. Like on The Bachelor. But without the fake boobs and TV cameras.
10. Sometimes, when my mind drifts, I wonder what celebrities are doing right this minute. Like last weekend when I was scrubbing the toilet, I wondered to myself, what’s Beyonce doing right now?

And here are my answers to ten questions from my friend Mandy’s “10 Things” post:

1. have you ever met someone famous?
Alex Trebec. Does that count? And I came within four feet of Eddie Vedder when I was in college. Which was life-altering back then.

2. what is your happiest childhood memory?
There are so many! My birthdays were the best. My family always made them so special.

3. favorite album of all time?
Ooh. This is tough. I have to declare a tie between Michael Jackson’s Thriller and The Immaculate Collection by Madonna because both bring back such awesome, silly memories.

4. are you a salty or sweet lover?
Both, equally. It’s a cruel cycle. I eat dinner, I want dessert. I finish dessert, I want Cheetos.

5. what is favorite guilty pleasure tv show or movie?
American Idol.

6. describe your favorite sandwich.
Granny smith apples, bacon and cheddar cheese between french toast slices sprinkled with powdered sugar.

7. what was your first pet?
A cat named Boots. Laura and I used to dress her up in doll clothes. She hated it, which made us love it even more.

8. what is your biggest accomplishment thus far in life?
Bringing Lily and Sophie into this world and being their mother.

9. what is the first blog you started reading? I learned about her during her 2009 book tour, and it changed my life. I never knew this whole world of blogging existed. And that other women who had survived PPD were talking about! Online! I still check in with her blog nearly every day.

10. if you had to choose one dessert for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Yellow cake with chocolate icing.

  1. I just love posts like these! My comments? Have you read Lily “A Bade Case of the Stripes”? Maybe she’ll love lima beans too! And a french toast sandwich with bacon and apples and cheese? I think my head exploded and went to salty sweet heaven.

  2. OMG – that sandwich sounds DIVINE!!!

  3. […] do this instead of make people fill out all those lame surveys. It’s how I confirmed that Suzanne and I really are soul mates (see question 3 for proof) and should definitely hang out more. As in […]

  4. # 3 is how I know we’re soul mates.

  5. Hey Sue – I loved reading this…some of your comments brought back great memories…Madonna’s Immaculate Collection, water polo, Cheetos…But what about Dean Cain? He’d be sad you didn’t list him as a famous person you’ve met : ) I wish I knew where the picture of us with him was right now…I’d post it on your facebook wall for fun! : ) Be on the lookout…I might just find it!

    Oh, and if someone reads this and doesn’t like you, then something is definitely wrong with them! At least that’s my opinion.


    • Oh my gosh!!! How could I forget about Dean Cain?! Probably because I was drunk? 🙂

      I’d love to see that photo!

      Miss you —

  6. Doh. I got tagged in one of these posts, and was going to tag you. Fail, now I have to come up with someone else! Fun to read though :o).

  7. Your favorite sandwich sounds so amazing that I can almost forgive you about the lima beans.

  8. mmmmm, Rockford
