Q & A

Holly tagged me! So I'm gonna answer these questions.

1. What are you going to be for Halloween, and what made you choose that?
Cory and I wanted to go to our wards Fall Festival in somewhat of a couples costume (What's the point of being married, if you can't dress up in corny couple's costumes??) We looked around the house to see what we already had lyin' around, and came up with the idea to be a Cowboy (Cory) and an Indian (Me). Cory wasn't completely onboard though. I quote," Lindy, this isn't really a couple's costume. Lindy, Cowboys killed Indians. And Indians killed cowboys." We ended up going with that costume idea anyway, but I don't know if anyone realized that we were even together. Oh well. Here's a picture that we took in the photo booth Friday night:

We had a bunch of leftover instax film from the wedding laying around expiring, so we brought it and put it to good use. (Also, then I got to take pictures at the photo booth, and see all the fun costumes! Win-win-win) With that and all the upcycled newspaper decorations, we're pretty much some of the greatest environmentalists of our time. You're welcome.

2. What is one random fact about you that not many people are aware of?

I absolutely hate scary movies. I hate them. I think by now a lot of people might know this, but I feel it needs to be said. I hate the tense feeling I get. I hate the not being able to sleep in my own room afterward. I hate the way other people are manipulating my emotions. I won't watch them with you. I won't. I won't even watch preview of them with you. So don't ask.

3. If you could go on a trip to anywhere in the world, where would you go?

Umm, Europe. Duh! We're actually planning our dream vacation there right now. In about 3 years Cory will graduate from FSU with his degree in Engineering, and we are going! I'm super excited. It's going to be hard to maintain this level of excitement for three years, but I feel confident I can do it. Also, it gives me a reason to save money. So, Europe or bust 2013!

4. What color best describes you, and why?

I asked Cory. He said, "I don't know...pretty colors?"

5. What is one piece of jewelry you absolutely can not leave the house without wearing? (aside from your wedding ring, if applicable)

My bird necklace. It's pretty and silver. People comment on it sometimes, and I always tell them "It used to be my Mom's." Then they give me a really sad look, and say, "Oh, I'm sorry." And then it gets awkward, and I say "Oh..she's alive. I just took this from her. She wasn't using it. " And then they think I'm a thief. So, it's pretty emotional for me. I'm wearing it in the following picture, taken a la myspace style.

Anyway, now you know 5 more things about me than you did before. Which is pretty awesome.
I'm kind of a party pooper and don't think I'm going to tag anybody...but I really just want to tag everybody. So, if you read this, you should do this. You'll have fun and we can all get to know you better. Win-win-win.

You are a gem, Lindy-Lou Hoo.

I feel exactly the same way about scary movies and previews for scary movies. No me gusta.

I think I snorted with laughter about the bird necklace. That's why I keep coming back to your blog, you know.

My favorite is how people automatically (did I spell that right?) think when you say your necklace use to be your mom's that she is dead. Weird... but not so cool that they then think you're a thief. Oh well. You can't please everyone.

Yes Scary movies dumb and of course not happy which all movies should be. haha!

Too funny about the bird necklace! I very much enjoy your writing style, it makes me giggle!

Also, how sweet is your hubby!?! "Pretty colors." Best thing I've heard all day.

I am also in agreement with the no scary movies thing. I have a deal w/hubby that I'll watch one with him on Halloween and Friday the 13th but other than that he may as well not even ask! They FREAK ME OUT!!!!

Fun post! I may just consider my self tagged!!! :0)
