"Me, Myself, and I" Link-Up

Breanna, at My Beautiful, Crazy Life, is co-hosting a new link-up.  It focuses on the About Me page.  Which is perfect, because the first thing I do when I discover a new blog is hop to the About page.  I want to know more about you, bloggers!

Here's mine, and here's this week's questions that will let you know a little more about me.

1.  What is your biggest phobia?
I hate being claustrophobic.  Sitting in the back seat of a car, small classrooms with tiny desks, low ceilings, etc. all bug me.  Planes?  I'm pretty dang miserable on planes.  I hate them.  I always feel like I'm being squashed and I get headaches and motion-sickness.
Oh, and wearing wet jeans.  That is, quite possibly, the worst form of torture I could imagine.  I hate jeans.
Oh, and glaciers.  I do not like the idea of slipping and falling into a glacier.

2.  If you could relive any day of your life, what would it be and why?
I'd liked to relive the weekend we got married (the first time) because I would've gotten myself to the mall and bought a brand-new dress.  I had no idea I was getting married until the morning I actually got married.  Therefore, I had to wear something I already had.  It wasn't bad, but still.  That was a lovely weekend in general, so I wouldn't mind going back.

3.  If you could choose to stay a certain age forever, what age would it be and why?
I really liked 23.  I mean, it started with a snowstorm on my birthday and ended with me trapped in Alaska (in the snow).  However, the time in between was great.  We got engaged, traveled across the midwest, got married once, spent some time in Missouri, got married again, opened lots of gifts, drove across the country (plus Canada), settled in Alaska...and that leads to the part where I was stuck here by myself for the winter of 2009-2010.  Can't win 'em all, I guess.

4.  Which celebrity do you get mistaken for?
People tell me I look like Julia Roberts (minus the red hair) when I smile.  I know that sounds like someone I "wished" I looked like and could be making it up, but I've heard it in different situations from people who don't know each other at all.  Maybe it's true?
Oh, and when I asked my husband if he thought Blake Lively was attractive, he said, "Yeah, you kinda look like her."  This did not please me, as I'm not a fan of hers, but I suppose there's worse people to be compared to.

5.  What songs are included on the soundtrack to your life?
We were listening to Jake Owen's "Anywhere with You" last week.
Scott said it could be our song.  I said, "Hmm, yeah..it could be.  I don't think Jake mentions Alaska though."
Here's some other songs that have meant something to me.

If you're a regular reader, I'm sure you appreciated learning some quirks about me (as usual).  
If you're stopping by from the Me, Myself, and I Link-Up?  Awesome.  I'm so glad you did!  (and maybe I didn't completely scare you off?)


  1. Wet jeans. Ditto. I love hearing fun things about you!

  2. This is cute! I'll have to link up next week. :)

  3. I'm making myself cringe just thinking about being in the backseat of a car with other people. Claustrophobia is a real pain in the ass.

  4. I have a real issue with planes too. Aside from being afraid of flying, I have major restless leg syndrome and
    not being able to stretch out kills me!

    Just found your blog on the Me, Myself and I Linky Party. New Follower :)

  5. Um Julia Roberts...yes please! That's awesome. I don't think I look like anyone famous sadly. Love the age you picked and all that happened in that year. Sounds like a great year! Popping over from Framed Frosting.
