20 Things You Might Not Know About Me

I'm taking tomorrow off--I'll be busy but I'll be back Friday. Since I've had a lot of new readers lately, I thought I'd answer some questions! Here are 20 things you might not know about me that I found in various places online! Play along!

Question 1: How tall are you?


Question 2: Do you have a hidden talent? If so, what?

I can wiggle my ears

Question 3: What’s your biggest blog-related pet peeve?

When people don't read your post and just copy and comment what the last person commented on.

Question 4: What’s your biggest non-blog related pet peeve?

People who don't read things before posting them on Facebook--take a few seconds and make sure it's true before you post false things!

Question 5: What’s your favorite song?

Just Like Heaven--The Cure

Question 6: What’s something people wouldn't know by looking at you blog?

I'm super shy. I look mad, but I'm not. 

Question 7: What’s your favorite way to spend your free time when you’re alone?

Make DIYs--should I sell them? 

Question 8: What’s your favorite junk food?

Anything sweet, but I usually keep it out of the house--almost 30 pounds down!

Question 9: Do you have a pet or pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?


Question 10: What are your number one favorite nonfiction and fiction books?

I added this bc I know so many of y'all love your books. I don't have a fave! I know! I do read The Alchemist every year. I have so many I love and won't get rid of.

Question 11: What’s your favorite beauty product?

Mascara or lipstick

Question 12: When were you last embarrassed? What happened?

I get embarrassed daily! I'm always doing something, but nothing I can remember off hand.

Question 13: If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Sweet tea for this GA peach!

Question 14: What’s your favorite movie?

Sorry, y'all! I'm the worst! I don't have a favorite, but there are tons I will watch over and over. Huge movie fanatic.

Question 15: What were you in high school: prom queen, nerd, cheerleader, jock, valedictorian, band geek, loner, artist, prep?

I was in the band, but had friends of all groups. I played flute, piccolo, and then I twirled flags.

Question 16: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?

I've been to all the states, so California, but I'd miss my family. World-wise, somewhere with a nice beach. I also love London and Sydney.

Question 17: PC or Mac?


Question 18: Do you collect anything?

Quotes, memories, makeup

Question 19: Any tattoos?

Yes, one on my wrist of my favorite letter.

Question 20: What blogger do you secretly want to be best friends with?

If I tell you, it won't be a secret!! Haha. Seriously, any of you that stop by regularly and comment genuinely. I love the blogging community. I love y'all!

What are some of your answers? Do we have anything in common?

  1. I love The Alchemist too, Elle, and used to read it constantly especially when I was feeling dejected:) And am super shy too.
    Love this Q&A, Elle. Have been following you since forever, but I still found out some new things!

  2. Love learning more about you! We fellow flute players need to stick together. :) I am doing a similar post tomorrow. Have a great day Elle!


  3. I collect quotes too! I have a little notebook and when I read or hear something I like or that makes me think, I jot it down in the notebook. Also, I don't know why, but I love that you played the piccolo in high school...

Ten of those pesky postpartum pounds and then I needed to lose a good 20-30 before I got pregnant Its rough! You were doing, Jenny weren't you? I remember you posting about it before. Make DIYs--should I sell them? --YES!!!! And I hate when I can tell that someone is copying a comment before them. Especially when that person didn't really read what I was saying either lol.I used to play the flute too!!! Can we be best friends? ;)

  40. I'm also 5'5! And I wish I could drink sweet tea all day everyday, but since moving to north east it's not as easy to come by :(

  41. I'm 5'5 too, and I totally crave anything sweet. I can't really eat much of it either though because I'm working on losing weight. That's awesome you're almost 30 pounds down!!

    I'm totally with you on wanting to be best friends with any blogger that I speak to regularly - I love the community!


  42. I would buy your DIYs! I have a huge sweet tooth too. I try not to keep too many sweets in my house either. I'd totally live in London and I have one tattoo too! Loved learning more about you and I definitely want to do this on my blog.

  43. It's great getting to know you! My mum gave me that book to read but I've never actually read it! How bad is that? The fact that you read it once a year is making me think I should! xx
