Something Fun: 20 Things About Me

Just for FunAbby Leigh Ecker2 Comments

I decided to join in on the '20 Things You Might Not Know About Me' blog tag by April of Blackburg Belle. Abby from Pomelo & Pomelo suggested that I participate, check out her post about it here. I'm always happy to participate in something like this and hopefully will meet other bloggers out there.

Question 1: How tall are you?


Question 2: Do you have a hidden talent? If so, what?

I'm a master packer. I can pack an incredible amount of stuff in any type of vehicle for a road trip. It's like real life Tetris. 

Question 3: What’s your biggest blog-related pet peeve?

Having to make a new account or something to comment on a blog. I already have a million accounts that I can't keep track of, I don't need another one. ;)

Question 4: What’s your biggest non-blog related pet peeve?

Chewing with your mouth open, gross!

Question 5: What’s your favorite song?

Pretty much any Dave Matthews Band song, its hard to choose just one.

Question 6: What’s your favorite Etsy shop that isn’t yours?

Emily Jeffords Studio, I love her beautiful colorful paintings. Especially the floral ones. 

"Morning Blooms #4" By Emily Jeffords (so pretty!!)

Question 7: What’s your favorite way to spend your free time when you’re alone?

Listening to audiobooks while embroidering or just listening to music and letting my mind wonder.

Question 8: What’s your favorite junk food? it!

Question 9: Do you have a pet or pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?

I have a little toy poodle, her name is Coco and she just turned 6. She's the sweetest most loving dog ever and pretty silly as well. Love her!

Question 10: What are your number one favorite nonfiction and fiction books?

Question 12: When were you last embarrassed? What happened?

Last week I went to a new eye doctor and for whatever reason they kept having me take my contacts out and put them back in. After about three times of doing this, I ended up dropping one contact, which was inevitable. So I was sitting there, blind in one eye, quietly looking around for this one contact. Eventually it turned into three people starring at me trying to find the contact. Then I noticed, it had fallen down the front of my dress. I quickly tried to just get them to forget about it so I wouldn't have to disclose that I had secretly found it. I ended up leaving with silly sunglasses inserts in my glasses that made me look like I had one giant eyebrow. The whole experience was pretty embarrassing, ha!

Question 13: If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Unsweetened Iced Tea

Question 14: What’s your favorite movie?

It Happened One Night - I love old movies and musicals :)

Question 15: What were you in high school: prom queen, nerd, cheerleader, jock, valedictorian, band geek, loner, artist, prep?

Artist but also I never really fit into any of those stereotype groups. I just did my own thing. I was athletic, a volleyball player, and had friends from different "groups". I was in the jazz and madrigal singers choir. I also participated in groups like student council and NHS. Art was always very important to me and probably the most grounding thing for me in high school. 

Question 16: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?

Hawaii! It's so relaxing living the island life.

Question 17: PC or Mac?

Definitely Mac, no question about it.

Question 18: Last romantic gesture from a crush, date, boy/girlfriend, spouse?

My fiancé recently got up early on the weekend to make me a very nice gourmet breakfast. We have different schedules during the week so spending mornings together on the weekends is always very special.
