21 Questions

I borrowed stole this from Tantra at PrettyLittleRunner.  You can see her answers here.

Alright, let’s take a stab at this!

1. Are you named after anyone?

Nope.  There were several options for my name, one being Lianne (my aunt).  My dad actually calls me that sometimes, especially when we are visiting her. My mom really wanted to name me Cherie Leigh.  So glad she didn’t!

2. When was the last time you cried?

Oh, the other day when watching the final episode of Boy Meets World.  It makes me sob like a baby every time.  I feel like this show was such a fantastic family show with real life lessons.  And although the relationship between Feeny and his students was unorthodox, it shows how deeply teachers care for their students.


3. Do you have kids?

Nope! Maybe one day!

4. If you were another person would you be a friend of yourself?

I don’t know.  I’m an introvert, so I suspect it would be hard to get them to open up! I can be difficult sometimes….

5. Do you use sarcasm a lot?

I’m the queen!

6. Will you ever bungee jump?

Not even if bribed with money!  The thought terrifies me.

7. What’s your favorite cereal?

Cheerios without milk.  Seriously. I’m like a toddler.



8. What’s the first thing you notice about other people?

Hm, normally the way they carry themselves.  Are they shy, not making eye contact? Are they loud and extroverted? I like to know what I might encounter 🙂

9. What is your eye color?

I usually say hazel…I actually have one green eye and one brown eye.

10. Scary movie or happy endings?

Oh happy endings.  I hate scary movies.











11. Fav smells?
I love the smell of vanilla, cloves, peppermint, and gardenias. But not all together haha!

12. Summer or winter?

Neither.  Fall please! I actually prefer winter – I overheat easily when exercising, so winter is my friend 🙂

13. Computer or TV?

Oh TV. I’m so addicted to horrible cable TV.

14. What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home?

I went to San Diego when I was a young teen – that is a far reach from Virginia!


15. Do you have any special talents?

Not that I can think of.  I’m really good an injuring myself in stupid ways; does that count?

16. Where were you born?

Puerto Rico. I was a Navy brat.

17. What are your hobbies?

Running, yoga, working out, playing the piano,  and becoming a professional Netflix watcher.  (Is that a thing? Where can I apply?)

18. Do you have any pets?

Nope!  I have all the allergies.

19. Favorite movie?

Of all time?? The Princess Bride probably wins.  Followed very closely by the Breakfast Club.

20. Do you have any siblings?
I’m very blessed with a biological brother and over the years I’ve added 3 stepsisters (2 from my mom’s remarriage and one from my dad’s remarriage).  I love having a big family!

21. What do you want to be when you grow up?

Grown up! I’d love the be the kind of mother that mine was.  She’s not perfect (no one is), but she is one of the most unselfish people I know. She raise me and my brother to be kind, strong, and independent people.

Hmm, that’s a hard one.  I’ve always liked this quote from the movie “Signs.”
