After being MIA for most of the year, I’m going to try to get back into the swing of things. No promises though because I’ve said this before. Anyways, I just got back from an awesome vacation to London and Paris and I plan to blog about that soon, but until then…. Remember those surveys we all used to fill out on Myspace? Well, a couple of the blogs I follow (Rachel A. Dawson and Brave Love Blog)  did something similar to that and I couldn’t resist joining in on the fun.

So, here we go!

    1. What are you most excited about these days?  The next upcoming thing that I’m really excited about is football season starting! It’s just a little over a month away!
    2.  Favorite holiday? Definitely Christmas.
    3. Favorite season? Fall. Mainly because of football season, but I also love the weather, the clothes, and fall activities like pumpkin carving, bonfires, and haunted houses. Oh, and it doesn’t hurt that my birthday is in October.
    4. Recent hobby?  I’ve started learning guitar. I didn’t want to tell a lot of people in case I don’t stick with it, but maybe this will make me feel more accountable. I just started a few weeks ago though so I don’t know much yet.
    5. If you could switch lives with someone for a day, who would it be?   
    6. If you could have coffee with someone from the past, who would it be? If I’m picking someone I personally knew, I would say my grandma. But if we’re going with someone famous, I would say Cary Grant.

    8. What’s the best way to decompress? Lighting a candle, drinking some coffee, and reading a good book.
    9. What’s the weirdest word in the English language? I can’t think of anything. Although I know there are plenty of weird words out there.
