Tagged: the Meme

I was tagged by Muddy Mama for this, so here it goes:

1) Were you named for anyone? Kate - my mom dreamed about a little girl when she was pregnant with her second child, a little dark haired, dark eyed, olive-skinned little girl named Katie. Her second child was born looking exactly like her dream except for one, small detail. They decided to name him Eric, instead. 11 years later I came along, and the name Katie seemed to fit a little better :) She chose to name me Kathryn so I could go by whatever I wanted as I grew up. My middle name was my grandmother's (mom's mom), Yvonne.

2) When was the last time you cried? Hm, maybe 2 weeks ago? I'm not sure, but I am pretty sure it was me being over-emotional related to sleep deprivation.

3) Do you like your handwriting? When I take the time to bother writing well, then yes. However, I have not written nicely in a long time, so I'm not sure if I even remember it correctly.

4) What is your favorite lunchmeat? What kind of questions are these? I would say real turkey with provolone ( yea Muddy Mama!)

5) Do you have kids? 1 kid, the Marvelous Isabella Marie! Hopefully more will follow.

6) Would you be friends with you? I would hope so! I like blunt honesty and have worked hard at more tact, and continue to try to be more kind.

7) Do you use sarcasm a lot? No, never. (can you hear the sarcasm?) Yes, whether good or bad, I do. However, I so try to stay away from mean or cutting remarks. mostly.

8) Do you still have your tonsils? yes. and appendix in case you're interested.

9) Would you bungee jump? this ranks up there with "would you jump off a 40 foot cliff into water?" So... YEAH! Sure! Although I would much rather parachute than bungee jump. That sounds like more fun.

10)What is your favorite cereal? Special K Cinnamon Pecan. new obsession, isn't that sad? Also Special K fruit-n-yogurt, and Captian Crunch peanut Butter. yum. Although I don't buy that last one, just wait for vacation when my brother brings it along.

11)11. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off? nope

12. Do you think you are strong? sure. especially when it comes to wills, opinion, ideals. But not coffee. :) Note: anyone who carries a baby carrier (with a baby) and groceries in the large quantities it takes to raise a family is strong.

13. What is your favorite ice cream? yes. specifically, Mint Chocolate Chip.

14. What is the first thing you notice about people? eyes, facial expression. (my husband would like to insert gender as his answer.)

15. Red or pink? red for me, pink for Isabella

16. What is the least favorite thing you like about yourself? I am a disorganized procrastinator.

17. Who do you miss the most? my best friend from college who lives in Kentucky.

18. What color pants and shoes are you wearing? green scrub pants and no shoes, just socks. I love lazy weekend mornings.

19.what was the last thing you ate? a glass of milk. preceeded by a chocolate cupcake. hehehe.

20. What are you listening to right now? Bella playing with a "water mat" thing. the water is all contained so nobody gets wet, but it makes a funny squishy sound.

21. If you were a crayon what color would you be? Red. or maybe one with a weird, funny name, like "purple mountain's magesty" or "puse"

22. Favorite smells? Summer rain, winter snow, men's cologne, gingerbread, anything baking

23. Who was the last person you talked to on the phone? my mom. what a surprise.

24. Favorite sports to watch? football! what a great excuse to sit and drink beer for a little while.

25. Hair color? brown. kinda like mud, only darker.

26. Eye color? brown. see above. you wear contacts? yup, every day.

28. Favorite foods? italian, mexican, creole/cajun, chocolate, berries, whiskey, red wine

29. Scary movies or happy ending? how about both? scary with a happy ending, or just happy ending. But never scary without the happy ending.

30. Last movie you watched? Chicago, I love that movie!

31. What color shirt are you wearing? grey Brew Thru t-shirt that I slept in. see #18

32. Summer or winter? both, I love my seasons. But winters need to have more snow.

33. Hugs or kisses? both, and lots of them

34. Favorite dessert? yes

36. What is on your mouse pad? I'm using a laptop.

37. What did you watch on tv last night? Kids By The Dozen, and CSI:Miami. I think that might be the only TV I've watched all week... nope, I watched a "Good Eats" earlier in the week, too.

I need to do that one too! Maybe tonight - oh, nevermind - the guys will be taking up the computer.

Why - because we love you! :)

Just a side note - our husbands are all geeks - playing their game. (roll eyes here)
