Questionnaire from Katie

One of my best friends moved away this summer (You can have more than one? "Best Friend is a tier, Danny"), and it was really sad. I was rereading her blog, and I remembered that she tagged me forever ago in this cute blogger questionnaire. I'm not good at tagging people, but I want to fill it out still to help jump start my blog participation again.

Also, stay tuned, I have 2 more Andrewisms waiting in the wings.

Questions from Katie

  1. What do you love most about summer? Being able to go OUTSIDE. And I LOVE summer nights. Your day is soo much longer in the summer than in the winter. And the sunsets in Utah are amazing.
  2. What is your favorite TV show? You meant showS, right? The Mindy Project, Suits, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, everything else... My favorite "oldies" are The West Wing and Gilmore Girls. (Even though I still haven't seen the last season. I'm in denial)
  3. Where is your dream place to live? Um, we are trying to figure that out right now. I just need a place with nice people, a solid community, a good place to raise my future kids, lots of job opportunities, and maybe it has a beach? Or at least lots of pools.
  4. What was your best vacation? I always love vacation. One favorite was when we went to TN last year for a family reunion. That was such a blast that I threw a tantrum and didn't want to go home, so we extended our trip! (Also I lost my job the week before, so that was why I was so tantrum-y)
  5. What is one of your biggest fears? Finding a dead body. Seriously. I hate parking garages and basements and saunas because of it.
  6. Coke or Pepsi? Dr. Pepper. It's the only soda I always like. 
  7. Favorite scent at Bath and Body Works? Anything citrus-y, and they don't have many of those flavors lately! Coconut Mango and Orange Sapphire are the ones I own right now.
  8. What’s a beauty tip you want to share with the world? Oh geeze, I'm NOT the person to ask. I have a four-step makeup routine that never varies and I rarely do my hair. I did just learn that if you spray your perfume on the back of your neck, your hair will whisk the scent around all day, so it feels nice and fresh all day. But maybe everyone already knew that.
  9. How do you motivate yourself to be healthy? About a year ago, I decided to stop gaining weight ha. I haven't lost a ton, but I'm on the right track these days. I don't have STRONG motivation, but one thing that worked for me was to give up a lot of junky stuff for a while. Once you train your tastebuds to like healthier stuff, it's harder to eat junk. Now I get sick off of just a little bit of ice cream, so it's a lot easier to choose fro yo or a homemade smoothie instead. And I have an exercise counselor ;) My first forever friend, Brittany, will check up on me and remind me to exercise and give me ideas for how to do it. I hate telling her that I didn't do anything, so that's a helpful tool to at least get up off the couch some days!
  10. What is your favorite website? Oh, I have a billion that I like. I love catching up on friend's blogs. Those are the only ones where I always read the text. I also love Katy at No Big Dill; she's so artistic and takes such beautiful pictures. I also like what she writes. 
  11. Would you rather be in your sweats or get dressed up? I love getting dressed up. My husband is really good at telling me if I look good, so that helps. (Really all I have to do is put in earrings and he can't stop talking about how pretty I look haha) I used to love sweats but I tend to feel like I need to shower all the time when I'm in sweats. So that's a bummer.

11 Facts about Me

  1. I hate getting my hair cut. I cry every time. I have a really sensitive head and those combs...yikes. Luckily I just found a friend who is awesome at hair cuts, and she didn't make me cry! I'm thrilled about it. I kind of want to go get my haircut in 1 month instead of in 1 year.
  2. I have 26 nieces and nephews. I love them so much. I will probably talk your ear off about them. 
  3. I love TV. 
  4. I still like to think of myself as a ballerina, but I'm not. But I miss it a lot.
  5. I really like my job. It's in my field, it's not too stressful, I work with awesome people, and I'm home by 3:30 every day. 
  6. I have a lot of extra time to myself because my husband is in law school. I fill that time with learning how to craft: quilting, sewing, knit, crochet, etc. That's why I have a crafternoon section on my blog. It's a bit sad, really. But I enjoy my new hobbies.
  7. I mostly wear skirts. I have 2 pairs of pants that actually fit me, and I wear them alternate Fridays.
  8. I've owned my favorite pair of flip-flops since 2005. They survived Australia, college, and a trip down river in Thailand. They are Havaianas, and I highly recommend that brand.
  9. Andrew and I make dang good Thai food. And we love to make it, so come over and eat with us.
  10. My favorite food is fried chicken, but I'm pretty picky about what kind is good enough. Publix is still my favorite.
  11. I'm actually really excited for football season this year. Andrew has taught me well. Go Cougars!


  1. I love this Laura! You are so cute and this made me realize how much I miss you!

  2. I loved this post! I'm totally with you on the Thai food - you make the best Thai food ever!

  3. This is so fun! Are you guys still in Provo? Because I would totally be up for some homemade Thai food...

    1. Megan! I just saw your comment! Yeah we're in Provo. We should get some people together and eat Thai food!
