Get to Know Other Blogs... Party!

Lynnette over at Dancing Barefoot on Weathered Ground is having a little blog party today... you are supposed to link up your blog and write a post with 10 fun/interesting things about yourself (which is optional). The point is to get to know everyone a little better...and to find blogs that you may not have discovered yet. :)
I thought it would be fun... so I'm linking up... and you should to. ;)

Here goes:

1. I can never think of anything interesting about myself when I'm put on the spot. That, and I feel like I will repeat an interesting fact that I've already previously disclosed in another blog post. And that would be tragic. ;)

2. I rarely go to the movies. Mostly because I can't stand the thought of sitting still for 2 hours (No, I don't have ADD...I know that is what you are thinking haha)... and there are few movies that I actually have any interest in seeing.

3. I like mysteries. It started as a child: Scooby Doo. The board game Clue. RL Stine books. Unsolved Mysteries (tell me you can watch that alone and I will call your bluff. The theme music alone gives me the willies... but I loved it as a kid). And now... I lose my marbles for Forensic Files, 48 hour mystery...anything on Tru TV. Not Reality. Actuality.

4. I love to sew...but I very rarely follow a pattern. It is like reading Greek to me: frustrating and baffling. Yes, I'm pattern illiterate. And yes, I would like your sympathy. (I bet you wouldn't give me your sympathy if you found out that my mom was a professional seamstress... I just never took a serious interest in learning until I moved 3 states away. :( I know. Woe is me. haha)

5. I get on crazy cereal kicks... and I will crave a certain type of cereal for weeks. Then I never want to see it again (for at least a year). Count Chocula...Strawberry Shredded Wheat... Frosted Flakes... Kix... and (if you are dying to know) I am currently losing my marbles for Honey Nut Cherrios.

6. I am a total night person. I hate getting up early...and I don't care what you morning people say... a night person doesn't "get use to" getting up early. Even if you go to bed early (good luck getting to sleep). It never gets easier. It is agony. With that being said, when I do have to get up early... I'm not grumpy. I think that is such a cop out excuse for negative people to be mean.

7. I can't stand seeing/reading celebrity gossip magazines. Unless I am on a plane or getting a pedicure. For some reason, those situations make reading those types of magazines necessary. haha Even though I could completely care less about the people in them... I suddenly NEED to know "who wore it best" or "celebrities...they're just like us!".

8. Now that I am out of the "business" world... I hate wearing heels. I used to wear them every day to work and loved them. Now, if it is not a wedge you will have to bribe me to wear them. (Except for special occasions or going out at night). Daytime = flats.

9. While I'm on topic of wardrobe... I hate jeans. I am NOT a "jeans and t-shirt" kind of gal. I would prefer a dress or skirt any day of the week. They are cuter and much more comfortable, in my opinion.

10. I'm on a roll... so I'll keep going. I hate short shorts, too. Upon the strict instruction of What Not to Wear, I wear nothing shorter than a walking short or bermuda short...unless I'm going to the beach. (Which is not very often these days)

And that concludes my interesting (or not so interesting) facts about me! Now go over to Lynnette's and link up!

PS... I haven't been MIA... I just got back from visiting family and will be back to regular blog posts soon! I will post pics of my California adventures tomorrow! :)

You're great, Melissa! Loved it!

Welcome back Melissa! It was fun to read through your list. I don't wear shorts ever well maybe if it's over 100 and I'm home alone. Looking forward to seeing your Cali photos...

Kelly said...

I just came over from Lynnette's blog. I enjoyed reading your post! I'm definitely with you about the jeans and shorts! I love dresses and skirts :)

Kathryn said...

From Lynnette's blog.

My mother is also a seamstress of professional quality. Our guest room has the fanciest curtains in the house 'cause she made them. I don't sew a lot, but i rarely follow a pattern.

I'm much more a night person & definitely NOT a morning person. These days i wake up early, but don't get up until long after.

I don't even own heels anymore tho i used to wear them to work every day.

Nice to meet you! :)

Kathryn said...

Oh, so funny! After reading your "about me" - I live in So. Cal (tho in the mountains) & i also have a B.A. in psychology (from Pacific Christian College/Hope International University, Fullerton).

Great to meet you! i love how your blog looks! did you design it, or where did you get it?

hey the first movie my husband and I went to see, we were the only two people watching it! Too cool!
I have been teaching myself how to sew!
Patterns are a pain! Lol!
The wedding pictures are Great, too!
God bless!

Get Real Girl said...

Stopping by from Lynette's blog to say hello. Great to meet you. I don't get to movies very often either. . .lately when my family watches one at home, I usually grab a book.

kimmcl said...

Loved getting to know you better Melissa Marie - AND it seems like we have much in common too!

Lynnette Kraft said...

Your blog is visually extremely pleasing! I love it!

Okay, so I do like (love!) faded blue jeans...and I enjoy watching movies (even really long ones when they're good - like BBC movies), and I hate to sew. BUT!!! I do understand the cereal thing. I'm not like that so much now, but when I was growing up I loved an assortment of fine cereals like Fruit Loops, Apple Jacks, Cookie Crisp, Golden Grahams, Captain Crunch Berries, Frankenberry, and Lucky Charms. I totally get that. Oh, and I scrolled down and looked at some of your other posts and I also love your wedding pictures. You are gorgeous! Very pretty just like your blog.

It was so nice to visit today. I enjoyed our front porch cyber chat. :)
Have a lovely day. (Oh, and my daughter will be here soon to check out your neat design. Did you design it yourself?)

Hey Melissa! I missed your fun posts... I can't wait to see your vacation photos...

Kelci said...

Isn't this so fun? Loved gettin to know ya all! HaHa, just had to throw that in there. I'm kind of a country girl myself at heart. Your blog is just amazing! I would love to learn how to do all that someday, but can't figure it out! By the way, we just came back from TX. We took a quick (or not so quick) trip to San Antonio! LOVE SAN ANTONIO! I'm from KS just like Lynnette and it's about a 12hr drive, but worth it! Love your wedding pics. Never heard of the trash the dress thing. That's pretty neat.

Hope you're having a great vacation!

Blessings & Aloha!

I just came over from Lynette's blog and can I just say. . .your wedding was absolutely gorgious!! You are a very crafty girl to have done a lot of the work on the reception. And I loved the "dancing boots." Nice to meet you!!

Karen said...

I am stopping by from Lynnette's Porch Party to say Hi. I am a night owl too and can never get used to mornings either. I always say that mornings are way overrated! Nice to meet you!

Blessings to You,
