Question Post #1

Okay - I seriously didn't think I would get more than 3 or 4 questions because come on - I'm boring. But this is so much fun for me. And it's even more fun because I can feature all of the bloggers who asked questions and you can all check each other out! :-) I'll have to break it up into a couple of segments. Feel free to add your questions to the post before this one and I'll work on answering them!

Julia is such a neat girl. We have a lot in common. She sings in a Christian band with several guys (it used to include Aaron Shust until he went and got his own record!)
1. So Julia wanted to know about my favorite childhood memory?

This is tough because I have so many. I would say one of my favorite memories are in the summer - we would usually go to spend a week with my mom's parents (mam-ma and pap-pa) and they would take us fishing and buy us a ton of ice cream and we would help my my pap-pa pick vegetables from his garden and we would eat in town at their favorite restaurant. And then we would spend another week with my dad's parents (Poppie and Grandma) and my two cousins who were our age would come also and they would really entertain us. Poppie would drive us around in his golf cart and Grandma would take us swimming and to the mall and to movies. I remember riding around in her car in the hot Texas summers and she would give us juicy fruit gum and we would listen to 1940's music and she would sing along and I just thought she was like a movie star.

(Jill is a college friend of my friend Julie. She was in the same "sorority" as me - so we are "sisters" ha!)

2. Jill wanted to know how long it takes me to read all the blogs I have linked to?

Well, Jill, I have seriously thought about quitting my job and staying home to just read blogs all day because I could make a career of it. I spend WAY too much time. I subscribe to bloglines but I'm too impatient to wait for that e-mail every day to alert me to who has updated. I feel the need to click on every single one and look for something new. I like ya'll all WAY too much. And I read a ton of blogs that I don't have linked on my blog because I felt like if I had 300 links - it might get a little overwhelming. It's a sickness.

#3: Strawberry Rose asked me 2 questions - 1. Where did Scott and I go on our first date? and When and why did I decide to go blond?

Scott and I met for a blind date in Little Rock (halfway between both of our homes). WE had an ALL DAY date. We met at the mall and walked around in the morning and then got lost several times trying to find somewhere to eat lunch.......finally just ended up at Applebees around 2 and then went to a movie. I don't even remember what the movie was. I just remember that I thought he was the cutest boy I had ever met and I laughed a lot.
My dad and most of his family went gray in their late 20's/early 30's and I took after them. My hair started going gray in college. I started out with just a few highlights to cover the gray and as the years have gone by - I have just gone completely blond. My hair is 100% gray and it's easier to cover with blond because the gray roots would show a lot more on dark hair. I never imagined I would one day be blond - but I have to say I love it!

#4: Lena (she is a very cute newlywed that is so sweet) asked me what a typical day is like for me and to be specific?

Right now - I get up at 5 and Scott and I go to the gym. I come home and do my quiet time, check blogs and e-mail, shower and get ready for work. I leave for work around 7:45 every day. I stop by Sonic EVERY morning for a vanilla diet coke (I've dropped the vanilla for weight watchers) and get to work around 8. Every day for lunch I either meet friends for lunch, eat lunch out with the girls from work or shop or run errands. It depends what day it is for what I do next. I have Bible Study on Monday nights, choir on Wednesday nights, TU & TH - I'm going to a kickboxing class. I would normally cook dinner for us and try to do a little laundry and a little cleaning every night. I also check blogs at night. And Scott and I watch DVR'd shows every night also. We go to bed early - around 9 or 9:30 since we get up so early.

#5: JKW wanted to know where I buy most of my clothes?

On this one - you will have to come back on Friday. I'm participating in Big mama's Fashion Fiesta so I will cover it all then!!!!

#6: Katie (a BEAUTIFUL girl inside and out who is best friends with my friend Hillary) wanted to know what time I get up and what time I go to bed?

I answered this in #4 but I still wanted to put Katie on here!

#7: Becca - a blogless lurker - wanted to know how the self tanner worked out?

I have to tell you - the color was great! But it stank!!!!!! I wish self tanner didn't stink so bad. I was just talking to my friend Elizabeth about this last night.


Katie said...

WAY to go getting up so early and working out. I couldn't do it. I'm impressed!!

Julia said...

haha! Self tanner does stink doesn't it?!?!?! Thanks for answering some of the questions, I'll tune in for more. Let me know if you can't find that Crowder song. I can email it to you if you can't...since you have a Mac that would be easy. Our Mac's can talk to each other :)

"J" said...

Love the question answer post!!! =)

Good Luck with weight watchers! I joined about 5 years ago and lost 40 pounds...It's all coming back! I've been off it for about 4 years...I'm really trying HARD to get back on it without the meetings!!! I think the meetings are key...you really need that group support to PUMP U UP! =)

Kelly, you need a google reader! http://www.google.com/reader . It's free and I just keep it open all day and you load all the blogs you read into it and then you can read the updates right there on the reader and if you want to comment you just go to the blog. It will make blog reading SOOOOO much easier! :)

The Garners said...

Self-tanner DOES stink--that's my big gripe with it!

This is such a cute idea! I wish I could have asked a question. I am a little behind on checking blogs.

Harris Family said...

I love all the questions. I can't believe you get up at 5am and workout! Way to have determination! I could not do it! ALthough, I need to, too. Swim suit season is rapidly approaching and it arrives even earlier in Texas!

The Proctors said...

I love the question and answer blog!! My question would have been where you like to buy your clothes so I can't wait until Friday!!!

Julie said...

I loved this post!! What a great idea to take questions. It helped us get to know you even more.

I read the blog on the WW products but didn't get a chance to comment. I love the oreo ice cream dessert! It is the best!!

Also, there is a slight possibility we may be visiting some family in Bentonville, AR around 4/19. Are you close to there?

Mrs. D said...

Hi Kelly. I have a question for you! I just love when you show pictures of your house because it's beautiful. Where do you get your inspiration for decorating and do you enjoy decorating? Also, do you decorate for every holiday?

Sorry, I guess that's 3 questions! : )
