Let's Play A Game...

Hi Girls!

Happy Monday!  I hope that you all had a super-fab weekend and are all well rested to get this week started.  I had a great (albeit super busy and I didn't get my nap in) weekend!  I am so blessed to have some of the best girlfriends in the world and those girlfriends have the best kids in the world who let me get my "kid fix" long enough for me to get the desire out of my veins and realize that I really do like having an orderly home where everything has its place and more importantly, everything is not sticky--y'all know what I'm talking about :) 

Anywhoodle, after linking up with Leslie over here on Friday for Confessional Friday for the first time in a blue moon, I was able to get caught up on reading some of my favorite blogs but also exploring into the world of new blogs and getting great new ideas. So thanks in advance to Doneida for all the great ideas that I'm going to steal from your awesome blog (you can read more about her here)!

To get started, when I begin reading a blog I am really interested and fascinated in who the person is behind the blog.  So with that being said, if you are new here I am going to give you a little more insight into the gal who is behind this blog.  I've linked up a few times before with posts like this but I really liked some of the questions that Doneida had in without further ado, let's delve more into ME!

1)  What are you wearing?  Blue jeans, white shirt, orange hooded sweater.  As a matter of fact, it's the same thing here in my "Happy Fall Y'all" post. 

2)  Ever been in love?  Yes, twice (and I'm still single--go figure.)

3)  Every had a terrible breakup?  Yes

4)  How tall are you?  5'6"

5)  How much do you weigh?  Are you kidding me?!?  OK, I'll be as honest as I wanna be here--I weigh more than I did in high school but less than I did last week :)

6)   Any tattoos?  Yes, I have 1 but if you are following along with my "36 Things" list (see the full list here), I will actually be getting another one.

7)  Any piercings?  Just my ears.

8)  One true pair--favorite fictional couple?  Mr. Big & Carrie Bradshaw, Ross & Rachel, Zack Morris & Kelly Kapowski

9)  Favorite show?  Sex & The City, Friends, Scandal, One Tree Hill, 90210, Real Housewives of well...anything.

10) Favorite bands/singer?  Steve Miller Band, U2, Kellie Pickler, A Great Big World, Rascal Flatts

11) Something you miss?  My parents.

12) Favorite song?  Radioactive by Imagine Dragons (this changes all the time but is currently on repeat in iTunes)

13) How old are you?  36

14) Zodiac sign?  Taurus

15) Quality you look for in a partner?  Someone to love me unconditionally, someone that makes me laugh, someone who will accept me in spite of all of my flaws and hang-ups (I'm kind've screwed up), someone who tilts my chins or holds my face to kiss me (yes, Nicholas Sparks sets up too high expectations).  Oh, and someone that I can't fit into their jeans--I don't like scrawny guys!

16) Favorite quote?  The difference between try and triumph is just a little "umph".

17) Favorite actor?  John Travolta or Kevin Spacey

18) Favorite color?  Turquoise and burnt orange

19) Loud music or soft?  I love both--depends on my mood.

20) Where do you go when you're sad?  I live by myself so really anywhere in my house is considered my sanctuary but my sister is the one I talk to the most.

21) How long does it take you to shower?  15-20 minutes--depends if I have to shave or not.  I hate shaving!

22) How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?  Well, I work from home so my commute is from my bedroom to my office.  If I'm actually going somewhere, 30 minutes.

23) Ever been in a physical fight?  No but sometimes I envision going all bat crazy on people.

24) Turn on?  Pretty teeth and being tall.

25) Turn off?  Ugly teeth and being short.

26) The reason I started blogging?  I have followed many blogs and always wanted to get into it but was so scared that I wouldn't have anything clever to say and that no one would want to read it.  When I finally got out of that "woe is me" mentality and decided to blog for just me so that I could go back one day and read how I was feeling about different things, I took the plunge and let the words start spilling out of me.

27) Fears? Never getting married or finding someone to spend my life with, losing my sister, horror movies and spiders.

28) Last thing that made you cry?  Steel Magnolias--why do I even watch it over and over and over again?  I know how it ends.

29) Last time you said you loved someone?  Just a minute ago--while I'm typing this post I am actually watching my friend Deven's children and her littlest one just said "Jenny, I love you so much!" to which I replied "I love you to the moon and back."

30) Meaning behind the name of your blog?  Honestly, it's exactly what it says "Much Ado About Jenny" means that this is a whole bunch of stuff about me---some of it might make sense, some of it won't but it is all going to come from my heart.

31) Last book you read?  Best of Me by Nicholas Sparks

32) The book you're currently reading?  Forgotten God by Francis Chan.

33) Last show you watched?  Peppa Pig--I've watching the kids, remember? 

34) Last person you talked to?  Other than the kids, my friend Sakena.

35) The relationship between you and the person you last texted?  My sister--she was letting me know she just got back home from being out of town.

36) Favorite food?  Sushi

37) Place you want to visit?  Italy

38) Last place you were? Sonic--took the kids there for dinner

39) Do you have a crush?  No

40) Last time you kissed someone?  A few weeks ago, one of the online dating guys I went out with.  Turned out to be a total loser, BTW!

41) Last time you were insulted?  I don't remember.

42) Favorite flavor of sweet?  Peanut butter flavored anything and pound cake

43) What instruments do you play?  I used to play piano but haven't in more than 20 years.

44) Favorite piece of jewelry?  Pearls

45) Last sport you played?  Hmm, I am the most uncoordinated person in the world--so, does walking count :)

46) Last song you sang? Sail by Awolnation

47) Favorite chat up line? I'm not sure what this question means so I'm going to think this is a favorite pick up line which is "How you doing?" in my best Joey Tribioni voice.

48) Have you used it?  Hmm, this could go to so many places so I'm going to pass right over it.

49) Last time you ever hung out with anyone?  Guy--see #40.  Friend--my BFF last week.

50) Who should answer these questions?  If you are reading this--then you :)

OK girls, I hope you enjoyed getting to know a little more about me.  If you decide to do it yourself, be sure to leave a comment so I can check it out!
