getting to know me, getting to know you

Normally, I am not into these kind of surveys. I feel pretty junior high-ish. But here is the deal. I have 132 readers right now, most of you I don't know outside of being my followers! Which I am not crazy about! I want to get to know the people who are reading my blog - that's part of the fun in blogging, right?

So here it is. 

I saw this survey here and I liked it. I am going to revert to junior high things (which is kind of fun really), fill out the survey, and then I would love for you to do the survey and link to your blog here in the comments. 

I want to read about you, get to know you, and have us all share a bit about ourselves. 

Here I go: 

Making: a cowl scarf and a cross stitch hoop
Cooking: nothing
. if there is any household duty i hate - it is cooking
Drinking: Diet Coke, in excess

Reading: Water for Elephants

Wanting: an uninterrupted day browsing antiques

at my living room mess - toys and shoes and blankies all over the floor
Playing: with Sawyer is my favorite thing

energy. we have our air conditioning on in april. don't judge me - it was 90 today
Sewing: i plead the fifth

Wishing: for a weekend away sans kiddo

a quiet house
Waiting: for my big break
new craft books, time with friends, sleeping in on the weekend
Wondering: what my next big project will be
Loving: Sawyer's silly fake laugh he does - at strangers :)
: for a new spring dress
Marvelling: at how much God has taken care of us in our 5 short years of marriage
truly, nothing
Smelling: the smell of air conditioning. am i just weird or does anyone else like this smell?

Wearing: pajamas and a t-shirt - my at home uniform
Following: like a million blogs
Noticing: how much fun pinterest is. seriously, it is addicting
Knowing: that I am so blessed
Thinking: about making some Easter cake pops to take to work
way too many things
Opening: a package i ordered - a tiny bird metal stamp
Giggling: at Dinner for Schmucks. it was so funny!
Feeling: like I think I am ready for the week ahead...

I had fun with this little survey, and I hope you will too! Please join in the fun - I want to visit your blogs and read about you! 

Comment below and let's all do some blog visiting!

  2. Hi I found your blog becaouse of my sister..Emily... I also loved "getting to know you" visit me too!! http://ciciray.blogspot.com/

  3. I am starting to think that I am the only one that follows (stalks) blogs that doesn't have one.....hmmm. Am I? (Love yours by the way!)

  4. No, Barrie - you are not alone, I am a follower, not a blogger! Just bumped into this site and expect that I am going enjoying every post that comes out.

  5. Nope, Barrie. Until I started this blog a couple months ago, I just followed blogs too. I think there are lots of people who follow along without blogging! Glad to have you reading along!
