12 Things You Didn’t Know About Me

Time for another about me post.  I am using some of the questions from the Root Report 25 New Get to Know Me Questions.

  1. Are you named after anyone?
    Yes, but not directly.  When my mother was growing up my grandmother always had a bottle of CHANEL perfume neatly displaced on her dresser.  She would put a dab on for special occasions.  My mom always liked the way the name looked on the bottle.
  2. When was the last time you cried?
    UHM. Last two weeks ago, at work. Stay tuned for my Crying at Work Post. It happens to everyone,
  3. Do you have kids?
    Nope, but I do have two cats.  The kitten just got spayed and is currently wearing 0-3M baby clothes. Adorable.
  4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?
    This is something I ask myself a lot actually. And I would like to think so, but I would probably also be annoyed from time to time too.
  5. Do you use sarcasm a lot?
    All the time, do I get points for being blunt too?
  6. What’s the first thing you notice about people?
    Honestly… how they treat others. It sticks out to me like a sore thumb.
  7. What is your eye color?
    Blue.
  8. Scary movie or happy endings?
    I hate scary movies, I am known for “watching” with a pillow in front of my face. Sometimes the world is rough enough as it is, so when I want to be entertained it has to be a happy ending.
  9. Favorite smells?
    The smell of a wood-burning furnace, fall and oddly enough a sea salt spray I used in my hair on a trip to Iceland.  I used it the whole time we were there and now when the smell hits my nose I am right back there.
  10. What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home?
    Iceland.
  11. Do you have any special talents?
    I am creative and good at coming up with solutions for problems.
    I am a highly sensitive person or as I call it a collector of emotions. It can be difficult but it also helps me be in tune with my environment.
  12. Where were you born?
    In a hospital.
  13. What are your hobbies?
    How much time do you have? I like to do a lot of different things.  I have recently gotten into podcasts and audiobooks.  I knit regularly, right now I am working on a cropped sweater for yoga class.  I like to bake, cooking is not really my thing, I had a phase with royal icing that was intense. Writing is something I have always liked but never devoted much time to, until now.Board games Sunday’s are a thing in our house. We have a few friends over to play our favorite games. I also enjoy skiing and hiking. Being outside and in a thick forest is one of my favorite places. Yoga is something I have recently picked up again, I have tried it many times but I think it will stick this time.
