The 48 Things You Never Knew About Me

I’ve seen this floating around the blogosphere and thought I would also bring a little old school blogging back as if it were 2009. Thanks to my bloggy friends LoukiaElaine and Maria for reminding me about the good old days!!

So here goes:

1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE? 

No. I think my parents thought they were being trendy by naming me Heather but as it turns out, Heather is a super popular name from the 70’s. Well alongside Jennifer, Lisa, Amy, Nicole, Jessica, Kimberly and Michelle of course. Guess my parents weren’t all that trendy. Go figure.

2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?

Not long ago, I shed tears of joy as I watched my son receive an award at school. Yeah, I was totally THAT mom. Not only was I a proud mom, but also grateful he attends such a wonderful school district.

3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING?

When I take my time, yes. On a day-to-day basis, not so much.

4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT?

Holy random question! I’ll go with smoked turkey.

5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS?

Yes. Two. And I’m done.

6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON, WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU?

Of course!!!

7. DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT?

Actually, not really. At least I don’t try to.

8. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS?

Nope.

9. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP?

If you asked me this when I was young, naive and 20, I would have said hell yeah! But now that I’m a mom and I panic over everything and well, I’m in my thirties *ahem* I have to go with a HELL NO.

10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL?

Considering I lived on Fruity Pebbles in college (it was the perfect snack at 3 am in my dorm after a bar crawl) I would have to say I should have bought stock in it. For reals. Fruity Pebbles was my breakfast, lunch and dinner some days.

11. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF?

No. Not because I’m lazy, I just don’t see the point when they can be slipped on and off easily without the drama of having to untie – and then tie them again.

12. DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG?

Considering I birthed two children, I would say a resounding YES. And every mother just nodded in agreement with me.

My Nana. It will be five years since her passing this November and there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think of her.
