Forty Questions

Nothing else too exciting going on around here, so I'm posting one of these fun survey things. I'd love to hear your responses if you're up to playing along.

1. Do you like blue cheese salad dressing? No. I'm afraid to try it.

2. Have you ever smoked heroin? No. I need every single brain cell that I've got.

3. Do you own a gun? Only the water type.

4. What's your favorite drink at star bucks? I've never been. Do they serve smoothies? If so, I bet that would be my favorite.

5. Do you get nervous before doctor appointments? Not my own.

I get a little nervous before Whit sees her boyfriend.
Always hoping for good news and fearing the worst.

6. What do you think of hot dogs? Can't stomach them. My kids are probably the only kids who never eat them because I refuse to buy them.

7. What do you prefer to drink in the morning? OJ....mmmmm

8. Can you do push ups? Yes! Billy Blanks kicks my butt and makes me do 32 in a row.

I usually can make it through the first 24....the last 8 are a joke.

9. What's your favorite piece of jewelry? Ooooh. That's a tough one. I have two

chunky stone necklaces I got from Charmed Designs that I love
(Ignore my face in that pic, notice the necklace!)

and some big ol' red earrings I bought at the beach.

10. Favorite hobby?

Does Singstar count?

11. Do you have A.D.D.? No.

12. What's one trait that you love about yourself? I like to laugh.

13. Middle name? Gerber

14. Name 3 thoughts at this exact moment: Will Caroline sleep more than 3 hours? How can I arrange the furniture in the girls' bedroom? That rocky road ice cream was sure good.

15. Name 3 drinks you regularly drink? Water, milk, orange juice. (Boring!)

16. Current worry right now? Is Brandon going to be rich so that he can support us when we get old? Because our 401K is not looking so hot right now.

17. Current inspiration right now? LDS General Conference from earlier this month

18. 3 Favorite Places to eat? Saigon Restaurant, Printworks Bistro, P.F. Chang's (I don't know if those are really true. They're just the first ones that came to mind.)

19. How did you bring in the New Year? Moping over the fact that we couldn't participate in Nicolle and Greg's Amazing Race because Andrew's back was hurting. I'm still bitter.

20. Where would you like to go if you could go anywhere? New Zealand

21. Name three people who will complete this test? I have no response to that.

22. Do you own slippers? Yes. Two pairs. A bright orange pair I bought on clearance. Andrew says I could wear them hunting. And a nice green pair my friend gave me to wear to the hospital when I had Caroline. How sweet.

23. What color shirt are you wearing? Light blue.

24. Do you like sleeping on satin sheets? I don't think I've ever tried it.

25. Can you whistle? Yes. I think I do a mean rendition of Scorpion's "Wind of Change" whistle.

26. Favorite color? Silver cars and jewelry, black clothes, brown and blue home decor.

27. Would you be a pirate? What kind of question is that? No.

28. Favorite girl's name? Ellery Refuge

29. Favorite boy's name? Brandon Trey

30. What's in your pockets right now? An empty sandwich baggie from some trail mix I was snacking on earlier.

31. Last thing that made you laugh? Brandon was making silly faces at Caroline while I was holding her in the baby bjorn and she was CRACKING UP. It was contagious. Whit and I were giggling, too, along with several people in Target who overheard.

32. Best bed sheets as a child? I don't remember any fun ones. But I DO remember getting an electric blanket for Christmas and I loved that thing.

33. How many TVs do you have in your house? Only one that works. I've yet to throw away the 15 year old one that's up in our bedroom. It was a trusty companion but passed away this summer.

34. Who is your loudest friend? Marianne

35. How many pets do you have? Zero

36. Does someone have a crush on you? Yes. He's tall, dark, and very handsome. The feeling is mutual
and he's stuck with me for eternity.

37. What is your favorite book? That's a hard one. I'm going to say "The Hiding Place" by Corrie Ten Boom

38. Do you like your hair? It has taken me YEARS to be able to say this, but yes. Yes, I do. Andrew and I describe it as


and unruly, but it's fun and easy to do and I enjoy it.

39. What kind of car do you want? It is completely impractical for us right now, but I've always wanted a Ford F-150.

40. Who is your oldest friend? I'm assuming this means the friend that I've had the longest? It's a three way tie between Marianne, Monika, and Misty. I guess I only liked girls with "M" names when I was 9.

I will seriously come to your house and rearrange the girl's bedroom. I'm in the mood to rearrange some furniture but my house is stuck how it is until we can do some major modifications. And I'm banking on Max making us lots of money too- I tell him the only way I'll tolerate this sports stuff is if earns me millions doing it.

Ang said...

I like the big red earrings too. I've also admired your toe rings and necklaces. You look so pretty all bejeweled.

Sandy said...

Fun! Love these things - I get to know all kinds of fun things about people!

The Normal Mormon Husband said...

You always manage to make me smile. Thanks for the pick-me-up during a long, tough day.

Amy said...

I don't dare to try blue cheese dressing either.

I love learning more about you - I could read these random question things every week about every member of my family (even strangers actually) and never get tired of them. IT's kind of like reading family history - only it's live and in bloglike person! I still have the one I printed off when my mom answered one of these - it's more personal information than I've ever known about her and I'm keeping it forever!
Love to you!
Grandma Sweat

Amanda L said...

I thought your name was "MariaLynn"....;) Your kids are so darling! :) Love your posts!

andrea said...

Amanda--you rock! You're probably one of the only people in the world who would remember that. :)

Natalie said...

Love learning this little fun facts about you. And I can't believe you don't like hot dogs! I am craving one right now...

Joey/Denny/Emma said...

I, too, love these surveys and could read them all the time. (And what a stupid question.."Have you ever smoked heroin." Right after "Do you like blue cheese dressing" no less.)

Steve and Kim said...

That makes me happy to see Moni's name as one of your oldest friends! I have soooo many memories from tagging along with you two (Petro's pencil box, John Casablanca, Don't fake the funk on a nasty white taurus, etc...) You're awesome!

Marianne's not loud!
