Remember me? I'm your blog friend who used to have all the time in the world (not really.) to blog about the ever-so-boring details of my relaxing summer life. I realize I haven't been around much recently due to my incredible school load plus all of the tutoring I'm doing. (Which, ps, I was supposed to tutor this guy today for maternity...and he never showed up. How lame and such a waste of my time! At least I got paid for it!) But lucky for me, some of you out there still seem to care and Carolina at A Life of Color showed me so by picking me to be one of her lucky passers-on for a blog questionnaire! Thanks, Caroline!! :) Here are the questions she asked me as well as my answers!

1. What is your favorite piece of jewelry you own?
My favorite piece of jewelry is probably my graduation from Clemson ring. It's not the typical graduation ring. I didn't get one from Clemson and my graduation gift from David was this beautiful diamond-surrounded ORANGE sapphire!

2. What is the most spontaneous thing you have ever done?
Some people don't know this about me and I'm not sure I've ever spilled the beans on my blog before, but my freshman year I attended UNC-Wilmington. I really enjoyed it, but my heart has always been at Clemson. One day, literally just one day, I had decided to take a nap and woke up and said to myself, "I want to go to Clemson." So I did. It was gutsy, I didn't know if I would get in and I only knew one other person who went there. But I applied that day and voila! A few months later, I got my acceptance letter and I might have cried a little bit.

3. Favorite color?
I don't have just one favorite color...I have three! And I bet you all could name all three of them if you've followed my blog long enough! :) Orange, purple, and pink!

4. In your opinion, what makes a great first date?
Mainly because it was our first date! We went to Longhorn's and that's about a 20 minute drive from Clemson. Y'all, I knew he was into me because he listened to me sing the whole way to the restaurant! And then, when we pulled into the parking lot, Taylor Swift's "Tim McGraw" came on and he literally sat there with me while I finished singing it. I'm a loser, what can I say? Ha! But we had a great dinner and the beginning of a wonderful 3 1/2 years! :) So, my answer is, any date that can let you be yourself.

5. Your biggest pet peeve?
Okay guys, don't hate me and please don't be offended! I mean nothing by what I'm about to say! My biggest pet peeve is when people make grammatical mistakes. I am by no means an English major (but my grandma is!) but it really irritates me! Here is the lesson for the day: Y'all is not really a contraction--however, in the South, we pretend it is. So, if you're going to use it, spell it correctly! It is not ya'll with the apostrophe after the "a". You + all = y'all. Also, "a lot" is 2 words, not one. It's "a lot" , not "alot"--kapeesh? Seriously, please don't hate me.

6. Favorite dessert?
Um...hello- a big 'ole hunk of chocolate cake with chocolate frosting!

7. Dream car?
I am so not a car person, haha! I don't know anything about cars at all. And all I can say is I would be a lost cause if my car broke down on the side of the road! But, since David works at BMW, I have my eye set on one of these--with all the hook ups of course! ;)

8. Favorite toy as a child?
How silly is this going to sound? I loved my babydolls when I was little bitty, but as I got older I loved to play school. My mom is a teacher and would bring me home all of her leftover worksheets and I would "teach" school to all of my babies. By far, my favorite teacher job was writing on the white board. Yes, I did have a white board with ALL of the marker colors! To this day, if I go to my mom's classroom, I have to write on the white board. It's just fun, ha!

Okay...I'm sure y'all have had enough of me for one night! My questions are:

1. What is your favorite movie?

2. Who in your life inspires you the most?

3. Favorite sport?

4. Okay, c'mon, spill it! Favorite blog to read?

5. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?

6. Favorite meal?

7. What part of the day do you enjoy the most?

8. What's something most people don't know about you?

And I'm choosing the following people to play along!

Enjoy! Can't wait to read your answers! Everyone have a wonderful weekend :)
