10 questions

Let's do this:

1) What is your idea of a perfect day?
This one is so fun to answer!  First of all, I would sleep in, like till 8:00, because I now consider 8 late.  I would be in no rush to get anywhere, so I would sit around in my pajamas drinking coffee and maybe reading blogs, or watching some mindless television. After lots of piddling around, I would work out and then settle in for a day of shopping. I would of course, find lots of adorable outfits, ON SALE, and then celebrate the finds with an excellent dinner. That would be a perfect day for me.

2) What is your favorite song and why?
I just have to divide this into two songs: First,  It Is Well with My Soul, by Horatio Spafford.  Each time I hear that song, my voice cracks and my eyes well up with tears. Then when I heard the story of how he lost his son, all his finances were ruined, and then lost all his daughters before writing this hymn?  YOU GUYS.  Whatever my is well with my soul.  Just be sure and play that one at my funeral.  Okay, and on a much more shallow level,  Heartbreak Warfare, by John Mayer.  Just because I'm a stupid girl.

3) Do you think crying is a sign of weakness or strength?
I actually am going to say strength. I think it takes more courage to be real with your emotions, and if you feel like crying then do it, don't try and be brave to save face. With that said, I am a crier, so maybe I just want to think that. WHO KNOWS.

4) What will you never do?
I WILL NEVER BUNGEE JUMP. Nothing else to say about that really, except, I WILL NEVER BUNGEE JUMP.

5) What is the most desirable trait another person can possess? 
Is humor a trait? Because funny people are my favorite! But other than humor, I'm really drawn to people who are effective communicators.

6) Are you holding onto something you need to let go of?
Yes. But I'm learning to let go.

7) What is your earliest childhood memory?
I think I remember bits and pieces around 4 and 5, but I'm going to say kindergarten, because I vividly remember parts of K.  Like standing at my teachers desk staring at her just because I thought she was beautiful, OR, the time in show-and-tell when my shirt was unbuttoned. TRAUMATIZING.

8) Do you push the elevator button more than once? Do you really believe it will make the elevator faster? 
If for some reason a fellow passenger on said elevator is creeping me out, you better believe it! Trust me, I watch WAY too much Dateline.

9) Where else would you like to live? Why?
 Out West, just because of it's beauty.

10) Is there ever a time when giving up makes sense?

And that concludes my ten questions! This was a fun mix up and I hope some of you will join me!

I remember hearing the story about your kindergarten teacher. Remember scary elevator guy from Nashville? Yeah.... I would have pushed the button multiple times then.
