I spent most of yesterday watching Chase and his BFF Lilly which was honestly just what I needed and a great distraction. My mind and emotions are still all over the place, so today seems like a good day for a random blog survey.
You guys know how much I adore blog surveys and since the last time I featured one on the blog was back in March, I figured we were overdue. I always love it when you guys participate in surveys, too, and since this is a short one, feel free to pick and choose or answer all of the fun prompts.
This survey is a fill-in-the-blanks style survey I bookmarked from Tina’s blog! Enjoy!
Fill In The Blanks Blog Survey
- I would try out for community theatre once.
I always tell Ryan it’s such a shame I was not blessed with the gift of song because I absolutely LOVE to sing and adore musicals. Part of me REALLY wants to give community theatre a shot but I’m so intimidated, especially since I severely lack talent and have NO experience, outside of performing arts summer camp when I was in elementary school. Don’t I sound like a director’s dream?
I always say that if a local theatre casts for Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (or now Hamilton), I will try out just for kicks even though I know I’d be absolutely terrified and turned away immediately. Maybe they could use me as an extra in the background where I could help with stage set up and lip sync my heart out?
- The weirdest thing I ever ate was frog legs.
This one is hard! Are frog legs that weird? I don’t know. I can’t think of anything too crazy. I’ve also had octopus, but that also doesn’t strike me as that strange. Probably because I LOVE octopus!
- The movie of my life would star Amy Smart.
I picked Amy Smart because she’s pretty much the only celebrity people have ever told me I resemble. I got it a lot the summer that the movie Road Trip came out but it has been a while!
- My go-to food indulgence is ice cream.
Eating an entire pint in one sitting would be too, too easy for me.
- The last live concert I saw was Straight No Chaser.
If you’ve been reading this blog for more than a hot second, you probably know how much we love a cappella music in our house. We are big-time fans of Straight No Chaser and have seen them in concert a number of times. (They typically tour around the holidays and if you love a cappella or just fun, upbeat music, definitely check them out.) Also, I just realized it’s been quite a while since we saw a live concert so we should probably change that… Zac Brown Band is on our radar the next time they come in town!
- My favorite jeans are my beloved ROOLEE moto leggings.
Do these even count as jeans? Probably not, but let’s just roll with it! I’ve honestly never loved wearing jeans because I don’t think they’re very comfortable and have a hard time finding jeans that fit my body well. (I need more room in the booty/hips/thighs and less in the waist and those two never seem to go hand-in-hand.) These moto leggings are my new go-to pseudo-denim leggings and I have amassed quite the collection of various colors. (The midnight blue color looks the most like real jeans.) I have all of my girlfriends hooked, too! They’re the BEST and so comfy. (P.S. I know the ROOLEE leggings are sold out all the time, but I found these moto leggings that look almost identical. I just can’t personally vouch for them!) For those who have asked in the past, I wear a size medium and while I think they fit mostly true-to-size some of you have commented to recommend sizing up to anyone in between sizes.
- My can’t-live-without beauty product is my Smashbox Photo Finish Primer or my Living Proof Dry Shampoo.
When I finally began incorporating primer into my beauty routine a few years ago, it changed everything and now I cannot imagine putting on my makeup without it. I swear my Smashbox primer helps my makeup last 10,000 times longer and whenever I forget to put it on, I feel like my makeup looks like a hot mess a couple hours later. This primer is more than worth the splurge!
I also swear by Living Proof Dry Shampoo. It’s fantastic and allows me to go days and days between shampoos! As a busy mama on the go, it saves me on a daily basis! I also feel like it adds texture and volume to limp roots, so I love using it to give my hair a little oomph as well.
