Carrie at this free bird tagged me to do a few questions for a Getting To Know You Tag. I loved all the questions and couldn't wait to put together this post! Here we go:
What is your favorite time of the day?
It would be easier to say what my LEAST favorite time of day is - morning. I'm not a morning person, I never have been, and it's safe to say at this point I never will be. If I see the sunrise, it's because I haven't been to bed yet. I'm a night owl, through and through. I like night time, I'm more productive at night, you get the picture.
Where and when did you meet the love of your life?
Jared and I went to high school together and met the day of registration in 9th grade. We didn't start dating until we were 21 and in college, though. I could ramble on about this for awhile (and I have, there are posts around our anniversary if you're curious), but I'll try to sum it up - I can be the world's most indecisive person and I never for one second questioned if I was supposed to be married to Jared. I've never been more confident about anything, ever, in my entire life.

What 3 words would your friends outside the blogging world use to describe you?
Funny, smart, caring. (I cheated and asked Jared. I'm horrible at answering stuff like this. What's a word for that?!)

What country would you like to visit and why?
France. Do I really need to list all the reasons?! Really, so many countries in Europe would make me happy. Jared took a business trip to Italy a couple of years ago but I couldn't go because I was in school and had 5 tests. It was heartbreaking.
What is your favorite dish to cook?
We've been through this. I can't cook! Well I guess I can, but it's not anything you'd be excited to eat. I do like to bake around Christmas though. By bake I mean something practically already made but I like to decorate it.

Salt or sugar?
What are your must have make-up or beauty items?
Ok, you can imagine how hard this question is for me! Some of my favorite make-up items are Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer, Chanel Inimitable mascara, Urban Decay Naked Palette (I see a lot of comments about it - it's supposed to be coming back in stock, probably for the holidays for sure, so keep looking. It's worth it!), NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils, MAC lipstick in Creme de Nude, and so many more things. If I love something, you'll hear me talk about it at some point!
What are your favorite flowers?
I'm actually really horrible at being able to identify flowers. Tulips are a favorite, though. Our very first Valentine's Day together I knew Jared didn't have much money, and I knew what the mark-up on roses was for Valentine's Day, so one day I made a big point of telling him how I DON'T like roses (they're not my favorite, but I don't mind them, I just didn't want him spending $100 he didn't have on flowers) so on Valentine's Day he showed up with tulips from the grocery store. They were gorgeous and I've always remembered that :) Oh, and to this day he's never given me roses on Valentine's Day. He always makes a point to find something different instead. I love it.
What do you think are your worst vices, honestly?
I have a bad temper. Especially lately with everything going on, there are times when I just want to scream and throw things. What can I say, I'm emotional I guess. I don't guess that's really a vice, more a character flaw, but I'm still going with it.
At what time of your life were you the happiest and why?
You know, it seems like every time in my life (my adult life, at least) I've either tried to make a plan or thought to myself that everything was going great, life has come along and kicked my ass. I don't know if that's the whole "We plan, God laughs" thing or what, but it's making me change my perspective. Lately I try to wake up each day and and just think about what I have to look forward to that day. It's much easier so I think I'm going to stick with it. What do you think?
I love tags and I REALLY love tags where you get to learn more about people, so everyone please take the time to do this if you'd like, and if you don't want to make a post, leave your answers in a comment. I know I'd love to read them :)
