Ask Me No Questions, I’ll Tell You No Lies

I feel motivated in January and yet I can’t decided what to write about or share.
Until I figure that out, here’s a fun little survey:
What are you completely bored of in life right now? 
Nothing. Life always has something interesting to offer.
What is your favorite scented candle?
I love pine & fresh scents (like cotton or laundry).
What movie do you laugh at the most?
I love Talladega Nights.  I’ve seen it a million times and I still laugh. Also, the 6th HP movie pre-cave scene.
What is the last song you listened to?
“I’m Alive” by Kenny Chesney & Dave Matthews.
What’s one thing you still have from your childhood?
What was your least favorite subject in school?
If you had a superpower, what would it be?
Flying or telekinesis.
What is the best compliment you’ve ever received?
Compliments on my writing. Also, my dad once complimented my calves (which sounds weird, but it made me feel strong) & a friend complimented my skin. The skin one meant a lot because she didn’t necessarily mean the complexion (which is terrible), but that it was soft and youthful. That was nice.
What’s the most adventurous thing you’ve done?
Probably studying in India. Also backpacking in the mountains one weekend in college.
What’s one thing you need to have in your fridge at any given time? 
If you could raid one woman’s closet, who would it be?
Olivia Munn #obsessed
If you could teach one subject in school what would it be?
What is your favorite movie?
Clue, Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Mummy.
Twitter or Instagram?
Instagram, I guess.
Dogs or cats?
I love them both, but I will always have dogs.
Dolphins or koalas?
Dolphins. They’re so smart and playful!
Bird-watching or whale-watching?
Definitely whale-watching! It was such a cool experience this past summer.
Weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?
Snail. Alligator. Turtle. None of which I’m dying to try again.
What’s your favorite band?
DMB, Panic! at the Disco, Fallout Boy, Old Dominion, Foo Fighters. (Like that weird mix? Haha.)
What country do you wish to visit?
England, Egypt, Germany.
What’s your favorite color?
Yellow. Black, grey, & purple closely follow.
Least favorite color?
What color dress did you wear to your prom?
A periwinkle/silvery one junior year. A sleek orange & black one senior year.
Blow-dry or air-dry?
I usually get the process started blow-drying, then let it air dry.
Pilates or yoga?
Jogging or swimming?
I love to swim, but I don’t get to very often anymore.
Best way to decompress?
A nap. Or some Miss Fisher’s. Maybe a book & a bath with wine and a candle.
What’s the best thing to happen to you this year (2016)?
My brother’s wedding. Changing jobs at the end of the year.
Where would you love to live?
I like where I live. If I had to leave the country, I’d go to Switzerland. If I could stay in the country I’d probably move to Columbus.
What’s your midnight snack?
Whatever I can find… A cookie, cheese, a slice of bologna. I’m not picky. (In college it was Doritos.)
What do you usually order at Starbucks?
Cinnamon Dolce Latte. Caramel Brulee at Christmas. PGTL in summer.
Who is the last person you texted?
My mom.
What are three things you can’t live without?
Dogs. A loyal support system. A creative outlet (i.e. writing, scrapbooking, blogging).
What’s the first thing you do in the morning?
Usually around 3am I’m letting Lylee out because she’s an a$$hole.
What is the question you get asked the most?
“What are their names/breeds/age?” because I’m either always mentioning my dogs or I have one with me.
What’s one word you use too much?
“OK.” I say it when I have nothing to say or when I don’t really know how to respond. Mostly to K and my parents. I picked it up from Amy on The West Wing.
Would you describe yourself as messy or neat?
Neat. K is the messy one.
What karaoke song would you sing without needing the monitor?
So many… Let’s go with “You Sexy Thing” by Hot Chocolate since I’d need to be intoxicated to even consider karaoke.
What’s one skill you wish you had?
Faster reading. Fluent in German. Faster at crunching numbers mentally.
What is the geekiest thing about you?
Probably the HP obsession.
. . .
Pick a few and answer them in the comments! Or just repost your own survey if you feel so inclinded  🙂

    Bunny is cute! I think Clue would have been my answer for the movie that makes me laugh the most. It’s one of my favourites too 🙂


    • Louise January 6, 2017 / 3:17 pm

      Bunny no longer has a real nose… haha.
      Clue is such an underrated movie!! I love putting it on when I’ve had a bad week 🙂


  2. lifeasunusuals January 5, 2017 / 7:52 am

    Oooh, I quite like this. I might steal it for later in the year, when I have pent up rage and need to let it out via tag post haha. That’s my answer to the de-stressing question too.

    This is such a random collection of questions, it feels very MySpace.

    I like your taste in music 🙂


    • Louise January 6, 2017 / 3:30 pm

      There were originally 73 questions (all random it seemed), but I skimmed it down. It does feel quite MySpace-y haha.

      Thanks! Everyday is a different playlist or album on my Spotify. Ha.


  3. Donna January 5, 2017 / 9:39 am

    Yes to Talledaga Nights…I usually hate crude over the top humour but I have a weird soft spot for Will Ferrel movies. I think it’s because they don’t try to pretend that they’re not totally ridiculous. Carmel Brûlée is my go to Starbucks treat this time of year too, so tasty!


    • Louise January 6, 2017 / 3:32 pm

      I’m a huge NASCAR fan and Talladega Nights speaks to my fast-car-loving-soul. Hahaha. It’s funny even if you DON’T watch races. I’m not usually into WF movies, but this one gets me.

      Everyone goes nuts for PSLs, but I looove the Caramel Brulee!!


  4. Elyse January 5, 2017 / 10:05 am

    Movie that makes me laugh the hardest – Drop Dead Gorgeous

    I also have a bunny! I still have it and by still have it, I mean it’s at my parents house now being loved by my niece, and by loved I mean dragged by the ear. They are sweet together.


    • Louise January 6, 2017 / 3:34 pm

      Never seen it, but I’ll put it on the list of movies to watch!

      Bunny has been everywhere with me (except a few trips where I was terrified I’d lose him). I also have a large white bear from my childhood named Aladdin. He’s in our bedroom, too. Ha. Poor Kyle…


    • Louise January 6, 2017 / 3:35 pm

      It does! And the girl that said it has wonderful skin and a great complexion, so I was caught so off guard and flattered!


  5. Rebecca Jo January 5, 2017 / 10:41 am

    I used to hate pink too & now love it. Dont know what happened to me.
    I have pine scent in my Scentsy at work – it smells like a Christmas tree up in here.
    Talladega Nights is my GO TO Movie when I’m down .


    • Louise January 8, 2017 / 9:47 pm

      I have a Scentsy on my desk at work but I’m not sure what the scent is…. I should make it pine or something winter-y!
      Talladega Nights is pretty much a classic. Ha!


  6. A Mindful Migration (@MindfulMigrate) January 5, 2017 / 12:12 pm

    I didn’t like pink for a long time but I’ve come back to again, although not pale pink so much. But the more vibrant pinks. I love Clue! And I don’t think HP obsession is geeky at all! 😀 My favorite candle scent is Jasmine, although it can be tough to find high quality ones. Some stink. Jasmine grows in CA, so when it is in bloom, I’ve been known to loiter outside businesses, homes, Churches or wherever it grows. LOL! I love this and will definitely be borrowing it in the future!


    • Louise January 8, 2017 / 9:53 pm

      I’ve never been a fan of pink. Green has been on and off the list of least favorite colors, but pink is pretty consistent. Ha,
      I don’t think HP is geeky either, but I know some do. Haha!
      Borrow away!


  7. Mattie January 5, 2017 / 12:45 pm

    Last answer = me too. It’s funny because I liked Harry Potter before, but after rereading it (and finally reading the last three books) I’m TOTALLY obsessed.
    Also, #same on the messy husband thing.


    • Louise January 8, 2017 / 9:57 pm

      I’d say the HP obsession and high-school-music-career are the two geekiest things, but it’s not as “geeky” to be a band nerd now since it’s our livelihood. Ha!
      For as Type-A as I am, K is so Type-B. Like, HOW does that happen??


  8. Samantha January 5, 2017 / 2:44 pm

    This was fun!! I LOVE the song I’m Alive by Kenny and Dave – one of my all time favorites. Also with you on the least favorite color being pink, it’s just really not a pretty color at all. So glad you’re loving the new gig so far!


    • Louise January 8, 2017 / 9:59 pm

      Thank you!
      I have never liked pink- it’s just not my color. Ha.
      And I’m so glad to come across someone that likes that song! I feel like it’s not very well known. I’m a big country music and DMB fan 🙂


  9. SMD @ Life According to Steph January 5, 2017 / 4:02 pm

    I say okay or very good when I have no response to things. LOL

    I used to dislike pink, but now I like it. My favorite color is purple but I also love yellow.


    • Louise January 8, 2017 / 10:17 pm

      There’s a character on The West Wing that says it all the time and K started calling me out when I started doing it. Haha.
      Our wedding colors were grey, purple, and yellow. That sounds weird, but it worked. Ha!


  10. Nadine January 5, 2017 / 4:49 pm

    These are such fun questions!!! I had to laugh at Talladega Nights! I haven’t seen it in awhile, but Chris and I quote things from that movie from time to time. Among like 20 others that we are constantly quoting. Wine is great for everything, decompressing, celebrating, emotional drinking…whatever 🙂 Your little bunny is so cute.


    • Louise January 8, 2017 / 10:22 pm

      We own it, but we usually only watch it when it’s on TV (which is dumb since it’s so edited, ha). I don’t mean to always have wine on hand, but we typically do. And it’s gets drank 😉
      Thanks, ha!


  11. Christina January 5, 2017 / 10:30 pm

    I love reading your posts so much, wish you could post every day! (That would be insane haha I could never do that) But yeah, now I’m going to look forward to Tuesdays and Thursdays! 😀 Bunny is so dang cute, Dog sleeps in our bed every night. I’ve gotta work harder on you with the the pink thing though. Pink is the best color in the world, but yellow is a nice choice too 😉
    Anddd I’ve gotta see this karaoke some time. Love the post!! ❤


    • Louise January 8, 2017 / 10:24 pm

      Hahahaha- good luck with the pink thing 😉 I’ve never been a fan. Since I was little I’ve loved yellow 🙂
      Dog and Bunny were attached to our hips when we were kids, ha!
      Thanks, Christina!!


    • Louise January 8, 2017 / 10:25 pm

      I’m glad they’re fun for people to read. (I think they are, too.) I think they’re fun to fill out!


  12. chelseajacobs January 6, 2017 / 12:45 pm

    Wine. Always wine. And I love that pillow case!


    • Louise January 8, 2017 / 10:26 pm

      Always wine 😀 Haha! The pillowcase is so soft, too!


  13. Olya @ The Siberian American January 6, 2017 / 4:01 pm

    So I recently discovered that Starbucks sells their Cinnamon Dolce syrup! I’m pretty sure that’s going to be a game changer. Haha. Also, I love whale watching! I’ve been twice in Alaska and would go again!


    • Louise January 8, 2017 / 10:28 pm

      Whaaaaat??! I need some of that syrup!
      I would love to whale-watch along the west coast/in Alaska! I bet that was awesome!


  14. texerinsydney January 8, 2017 / 5:12 am

    Movie that makes me laugh the most is also a Will Ferrell – Step-Brothers. It gets me every single time.
    Pink is my fave.
    I like your band mix.
    I have no Starbucks order.
    My prom dress was a fully sequined, black, pink, and purple number. Oh yeah.
    I love Bunny. I have Snuggles. He is missing one eye and his nose, but still very loved.


    • Louise January 8, 2017 / 10:31 pm

      Step-Brother is another WF movie that I like! Anchorman is the third. All the other ones annoy me. Ha. I think my pink answer was the least popular one, lol. Thanks on the band mix! I’ve seen all of them life except P!ATD and they’re touring right now. We don’t have tickets and it’s eating away at me. Ha.
      That dress sounds epic. My orange one matched my grandpa’s corvette at the time and it’s part of how we convinced him to let us take it. Ha! Bunny’s nose treads are gone…. Other than that he’s in pretty good shape. Ha.


  15. Amanda Bumgarner January 9, 2017 / 12:25 pm

    My mom is typically the last person I texted at any hour of the day. ha! 🙂


    • Louise January 12, 2017 / 2:43 pm

      I think my usually text-ers are K, my mom, and my friend Kayla. Then random friends/family sprinkled throughout. But I have at least one message from those three each day. Lol


  16. simplyalexandra12 January 9, 2017 / 2:14 pm

    awww my childhood toy was a bunny too, as was KC’s. 🙂 I love the whale tail photo! 🙂 🙂 Whale watching is the BEST!! I have never seen The Mummy… can you believe that?! Yoga FOREVERRR! I seriously need to start watching Miss Fishers… LOL XO – Alexandra

    Simply Alexandra: My Favorite Things


    • Louise January 12, 2017 / 2:49 pm

      DON’T watch the new Mummy movie coming out before you watch the 90s one with Brendan Fraser. And the second one in that series. They’re the best 🙂
      Bunny is my favorite ever. I also have a bear named Aladdin that sits by our bed that I’d had since infancy 🙂


  17. kristen January 9, 2017 / 2:25 pm

    i love that I’m Alive song.
    and omg i LOVE the mummy. such a good movie.
    um, excuse me? dolphins over koalas?! jk koalas are awful, dolphins forever!
    Miss Fisher’s FOREVER!!!! hahaha.
    we are going whale watching on our trip, I cannot wait! so excited!


    • Louise January 12, 2017 / 2:52 pm

      Ah yes, you’re a Chesney fan! I feel like it’s not a very well-known song! I quote The Mummy every time it’s on and it drives K insane 🙂
      I just think dolphins are so clever and fun! (And a koala bit my distant cousin’s ear once while he was in Australia… ha.)
      I hope you have an AWESOME time whale watching!!


    • Louise January 12, 2017 / 2:50 pm

      Thanks, friend 🙂 I appreciate the comment!!
