What is your favorite place to relax?
I think it depends on what mood I'm in. Usually I prefer relaxing at home, mostly because I can wear sweatpants and take off my bra (sorry if that's TMI, but it sure is the truth!). I love curling up with a good book in my chair, or baking something yummy in my kitchen, or taking a hot bath while I watch a tv show on my laptop.
What do you do to vent anger?
Get it out of my system! Write about it, talk about it, pray about it. I am a very verbal person so sometimes things have to come out of me in words lest they make me go up in flames. I pray aloud in my car a lot.
Most loved comfort foods:
Coke (from a fountain, not a can or bottle).
Carbs!--muffins and bagels are my vice.
Pizza Hut pizza-partly because it's so yummy, partly because it's delivered right to my door.
Warm coffee drinks--goodness knows a white chocolate mocha has been my comfort more times than it should.
Do you have any bad habits?
What kind of question is that?--how many bad habits don't I have? Top ones:
- interrupting people (I HATE when I do that!)
- locking the door automatically when I shut it (I have locked out my poor husband so many times when he goes out on the back porch to grill our dinner! oops!)
- getting worked up over nothing
- turning a radio/tv on no matter where I am. Sometimes, silence is good. I should learn to embrace it.
I've seen a few good ones lately: Spiderman, Brave...I think the last great one I saw was Avengers. It was sooooo good!
Favorite or most overused word or phrase?
I love the pet names I have for my hubby and our little inside jokes (totally corny, I know). Hmmm...I say a lot of things I wish I didn't: "like", "oh my gosh" to name a couple.
Who was your first movie star crush?
Luke Skywalker. I think Han Solo appealed to me more but he was taken, and let's be honest, who of us can compete with Princess Leia? I also had a major crush on Bo Duke from the Dukes of Hazzard.
Who/what inspires you?
So many people and things inspire me! I love Scripture, great quotes, and good poetry. I love blogs from real people about living life in a very real way. I am inspired by the fantastic godly women God puts before me; by art and how it stirs my soul; be being outside and seeing God in creation; and by stories! Oh how stories move my soul!
Favorite beauty product:
I love mineral makeup. I swear, my skin improved so much once I switched from liquid foundation to a mineral one. Bare Escentuals is awesome but expensive. I still buy their concealer because it is the best thing I've found for covering my hormonal outbreaks. I also love Clean and Clear Foaming Facial cleanser, and St. Ives apricot scrub.
Children laughing, the wind moving through the trees in Autumn, waves crashing against a beach, my husband's voice, British accents, Australian accents, South African accents, crickets chirping, bacon sizzling because it reminds me of my Grandma.
