Oh Sunday…..I remember the days when Sunday = Sunday Funday, which meant waking up around 11:00 AM (probably hungover from the previous nights festivities), meeting up with my girlfriends around 1:00 PM, and then the drinking would begin. Jacky was my ultimate Sunday Funday Partner in Crime. We were always running around having a blast. (Bali Hai, Jillian’s, Sissy K’s, Road trips to RI, downtown Lowell….I could go on forever.) We had so much fun, but even thinking about our favorite activities from our early 20’s now makes me feel exhausted. (That’s what happens when you’re on the wrong side of 25.) Now, at 27, Sunday Funday to me means: waking up at 7:00 AM to make sure I’m the first person at Stop & Shop, naps, reading, online shopping (in bed, obviously), Law & Order SVU marathons with Saul (until football begins), and if I’m really feeling adventurous, I’ll go shopping with Mel, or visit Greta. (I know, so exciting.) Honestly, I wouldn’t have it any other way. Yes, I had fun back then, but I no longer have that endless energy that I did at 22. I guess that’s growing up.
Anyway, I was in the mood for a Lazy Sunday Blog Post – something light & easy. without getting really deep into any specific topic. What better way to accomplish that goal than with a silly, fun, thirty question survey?
Enjoy! 🙂 And feel free to copy and & paste your own answers in your own blogs if you’re in the mood!
Mood! These beds look so inviting. And that girl just looks so cozy. #Goals #SundayVibes
30 QUESTION SURVEY
1. YOUR MIDDLE NAME, AND HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT IT:
My middle name is Christine, and I love it. It’s also my moms middle name, and I plan on passing on the tradition to my future daughter.
2. TALK ABOUT YOUR PIERCINGS OR TATTOOS, IF YOU HAVE ANY:
I have zero tattoos, and I probably won’t ever get one. I contemplate it from time to time, but I don’t love anything enough to permanently mark my body. Maybe I’ll change my mind one day. For piercings, I have my ears pierced. I got my nose pierced when I was 18, but I took it out about six months later, and it closed up, thank God. I hate the way it looks now.
3. YOUR FAVORITE TELEVISION SHOW:
Hmm….this changes so often. Right now, I’m obsessed with Real Housewives of OC & NJ. If you asked me six months ago, I would have told you Pretty Little Liars, which, I do still love. But it’s just too much now. Law & Order SVU will forever be my all time favorite show of all time. It’s totally not the same since Stabler left, but it’s just a classic.
4. WRITE ABOUT YOUR CLOSEST FRIEND(S):
I love my Girlfriends. Mel is my little sister. She’s the cutest. We are so similar it’s crazy. She truly understands me like no other. I love her oh so much. Jenalynnie is my best. We’ve been best friends since we were little, playing in the eves. She’s always my voice of reason and my therapist. I love all of my girlfriends – Jacky, Am, Chaunce (miss you babe!!), Jessi, Talia, Kirsten, Kristen, Sarah, etcetcetc. Love all you girls!
5. TELL US YOUR THREE FAVORITE COLORS:
Black. (Duh.) Pink. And…..maybe purple? Like a super dark vampy looking purple.
6. YOUR FAVORITE SEASON, AND WHY:
Fall!!!! I love everything about Fall, which I know I’ve expressed numerous times in numerous blog posts. Cozy sweaters, leggings, fireplaces, apple picking, Halloween, Thanksgiving, chicken noodle soup, fall TV shows – I could go on forever.
7. WHY YOU DECIDED TO START BLOGGING:
I’ve blogged in the past, but I never truly stuck with it. I’ve always wanted to start a blog, I was just scared of voicing my opinion and really putting myself out there. I’m so glad I did. I love to write – it’s something I’ve always been secretly passionate about. It feels good to not hide it any longer! I was always embarrassed by it, I think. I was worried that people would think my writing sucked. I always thought it would sound somewhat arrogant to say, “Oh, I’m a writer” when I have nothing published or completed, or “I have a blog”. I thought people would think, “What’s so special about her that she has a blog? Who would want to read that?” It was just my insecurity talking. I don’t give a shit if someone thinks that now. My blog is for me. It’s an outlet. And I’ve also gotten a lot of positive feedback, which was such a nice surprise. Deciding to go through with this blog was one of the best/bravest decisions I’ve made recently.
8. ARE YOU A FITNESS GURU, OR A COUCH POTATO?:
Neither? I am clearly not a fitness guru, but I’m not exactly a couch potato. I go through really strange periods with my fitness regimen. I have an “All or Nothing” mentality, which I know is not a good way to think. I can’t help it! When I’m eating really healthy, I’m sticking to it hardcore and that makes me want to work out like crazy. When I’m acting like a lazy bum, I’m not working out and I’m eating too many carbs. I’m working on finding a normal balance right now, honestly.
9. FAVORITE MEME AT THE MOMENT:
I’m obsessed with Halloween Memes right now. This one is probably my favorite:
10. TALK ABOUT YOUR PETS, OR THE PETS YOU WOULD LIKE TO HAVE:
Well, Lilly will always be my sister, even if she has a new owner. Lilly was my puppy as a teenager, and my mom gave her to a friend when we were moving out of my childhood home. It was traumatizing. Lilly has such a better life now, though. Her owner, Joy, loves her so much. She’s currently living in Newburyport, frolicking on the beach with her other doggie friends. I know she’s happy, so that makes me happy. And Joy lets me visit her whenever I’d like to. Lilly is a Cockerspaniel Poodle, and she’s thirteen years old!
Also, as far as future dogs go, I really really really want a cute little Doxon. His name would be Ollie. (I have the worst dog allergy ever, though, so unless that goes away, it’s not happening. WAH.)
11. YOUR THREE FAVORITE ARTISTS:
Britney Jean Spears. (As if that isn’t a given.) Drake. And…..Lana Del Rey.
12. YOUR THOUGHTS OR OPINIONS ON HARRY POTTER:
I could never get into Harry Potter. I read the first few books when I was younger, but I lost interest. I don’t really have any thoughts on it, I guess. I heard the more recent movies are great, so who knows, maybe I’ll watch them one day.
13. YOUR THOUGHTS OR OPINIONS ABOUT MEAN GIRLS:
Only one of the greatest movies ever made. So fetch. But seriously, I love Mean Girls. I can quote every single line to the movie. That’s what happens when you watch it every single night before you go to bed as a teenager. (I wish I was kidding, but I’m not. I didn’t have cable in my room. So Mean Girls it was.)
14. DO YOU HAVE ANY SIBLINGS? TALK ABOUT THEM:
I have a younger brother, who I call Jamie. (Everyone else calls him James or by our last name. My dad calls him Jimmy.) We fought a lot when we were younger, but we are much closer now. He’s very funny, and very fun to be around. I genuinely enjoy his company. We might drive each other crazy sometimes, but I love my brother. I would do anything for him.
15. TELL US YOUR FAVORITE JUNK FOOD:
Something sweet. Like Oreos, or Donuts.
16. YOUR FAVORITE DISNEY PRINCESS MOVIE:
My favorite Disney Princess is Rapunzel – so Tangled!
17. YOUR THOUGHTS ON UGG BOOTS:
These questions are silly….but I’m a fan of Ugg boots. They’re so cozy and comfy. I don’t think they’re ugly either, I think they’re cute. And Tom Brady models for Ugg, so….
18. DO YOU DRINK SODA MORE OFTEN THAN MILK?:
I don’t really drink either. If I go out to dinner I may order a diet coke, but that’s the extent of my soda drinking. And I only drink milk in coffee. I drink water, or vitamin water. Maybe juice.
19. THE INITIALS OF YOUR S.O.:
20. DO YOU WEAR GLASSES? IF SO, WHAT ARE THEY FOR?
Yes, I do. I have astigmatism, in both eyes. I need to get them rechecked, actually. I desperately need a new prescription! I’m supposed to wear them 24/7, but I do not. I pretty much only wear them when I’m using the computer, or driving at night. That’s about it!
21. YOUR FAVORITE SUBJECT TO STUDY:
I think this little survey was made for a 13 year old, but I can’t stop now since I’m so close to the finish line. I’m contemplating taking medical courses for my job, but I don’t know how much I’m going to love that, so I can’t say it’s my favorite. English was my favorite subject in school. I also think I would love Creative Writing, but I’ve never taken that course before. I want to, though.
22. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE HOBBY?:
I hate this question, in general. Define hobby. Reading? Writing? Shopping? Organizing?
23. YOUR OPINIONS ON LADY GAGA:
Lady Gaga just absolutely SLAYS! I love her. She’s so authentically, unapologetically herself, it’s so beautifully refreshing to see. She’s genuine. She’s gorgeous, a great performer, and just an amazing human being. LOVE!
24. TELL US ABOUT THE LAST MOVIE YOU SAW IN THEATERS:
I think it was The Disappointments Room….I’m pretty sure that’s what it was called. If I thought it was worth seeing, I would look it up, but it’s not. Huge disappointment. (Haha!)
25. TELL US ABOUT THE LAST BOOK YOU READ:
I’m currently reading It Ends with Us – Colleen Hoover. So far, so good, but I’m only on the third chapter! I heard it was amazing though from a few friends. The last book I finished was The Dead Girls of Hysteria Hall. I just wanted to read a Halloween/Ghost type of book. It was good! I breezed through it.
26. NAME A PLACE YOU WOULD LOVE TO VISIT ONE DAY:
Only one? Hmmm….there are so many places I would love to travel to. I want to go to Italy, for sure. But I also really want to go to Santorini (Greece.) And Bora Bora. I can’t pick just one!
27. LIST YOUR THREE FAVORITE GIRLS NAME/THREE FAVORITE BOYS NAME/THREE NAMES FOR PETS:
Okay….Girls: Emma, Aria & Ariana. Boys: Nathan, Ryan & Mason. Pets: Lilly! Ollie & Daisy.
28. YOUR FIRST CELEBRITY CRUSH:
I almost said Leonardo DiCaprio, but I remember loving Kirk Cameron, from Growing Pains, and I think I liked him first.
29. YOUR OPINION ON THE TV SHOW, GLEE:
I really don’t have any. I’ve only seen one episode, and that was based solely on the fact that Britney was guest starring.
30. POST THE MOST RECENT PICTURE OF YOURSELF:
Okay, done! I’m tired, it’s totally nap time.
Hope you all have a fabulous Sunday!!
