answer key

Q:How old am I?

No, I'm not 5.
That's supposed to be a 3 and a 2 for 32.
I suppose I could pretend it's 23...

Q:Do I wear glasses? contacts? neither?
Blind as a bat, but I hate wearing glasses so you'll never see me in them if I can help it. Contacts almost every waking minute.

Q: What color are my eyes?

Blue. Very Blue. In fact, that's often the first thing people notice about me and what I get comments on most often. That made it all the more amusing that almost everyone missed that answer.

Q: What color is my hair? How long do you think is it?

I never know the answer to this. I think my hair naturally is pretty plain brown. With quite a bit of red in it, especially in the sun. At one point it was almost strawberry blond. I've played with color in it since I was 16. Nothing too drastic... just slight variations of my natural stuff... browns, reds, dark blonds. Auburn I guess you would call it currently. Who knows.
And it's somewhere between chin and shoulder length.

Q: Do I have bangs?
A: Yes, I've always had bangs to cover a nice scar right in the middle of my forehead from cracking my head open (not really) when I was 1. I'm finally getting myself past the scar, and nowadays I usually wear my bangs pretty long and sideswept.

Q: How tall do you think I am?

I'm officially 5 feet, 6 and one half inches. People always think I'm tall, but I always wished I was shorter. So if you answered 5'6" or 5'7" you get a point.

Q: How many times do you think my ears are pierced?


I have (had) four holes in my left ear and two in my right. I almost always only wear one pair of earrings though and one teeny silver stud in the third hole of my left.

Q: Do you think I have any non-ear piercings, or any tattoos?

I do have a tattoo on the right side of my lower back.

I also used to have my navel pierced, but took it out just before I got pregnant.

Q: Do you think I have siblings? Where do you think I am in the birth order?

I am the oldest of four girls.

Q: Would I rather wear a) jeans and a t-shirt b) a skirt or c) yoga pants and a hoodie?

Jeans and a t-shirt. I pretty much wear jeans every day... jeans and a t-shirt, jeans and a sweater, jeans and a hoodie, jeans and a dressy shirt. I really wear out my jeans!

Q: Would I rather wear a) heels b) flip flops or c) tennis shoes?


Flip flops. I wear them in the winter if I can, too! I think it's cuz I like to be barefoot. I hate socks.

Q: Am I outspoken or quiet?
Quiet. As in shy and introverted. But if I'm comfortable or know you really well sometimes I can tend to talk too much. Just ask my husband.

Q: Am I usually late or on time?

A: Usually on time. I hate being late.

Q: An optimist or pessimist?

A: I think I'm an optimist. I mean, I can complain with the best of them, but never in a seriously negative way... I still like to look at the bright side of things.

Q: Am I accident prone?

I don't think I am and I'm surprised that so many people (who know me) thought that. I don't consider myself any klutzier that the person next to me, I've never been in a real car accident, broken any bones or really been in a hospital for anything other than childbirth...

So there you have it- that's me! Probably more than you ever cared to know, but there it is.
And here I am...

with mi familia...
sorry, I never got around to a self portrait today...
I've got a trip to get to!!

And Kasey wins the knows me best award, getting 15 points out of a possible 18. I thought it would be a close race between her and Nicole, but Kase got a bonus point for guessing three holes in my ears but only wearing one pair. Nic also got a bonus point for guessing exactly 5' 6.5", but it wasn't quite enough. My aunt Jessica was the only one who got my age right and the fact that I have blue eyes. Almost everyone else said I was 31 and apparently its unanimous that I should have green eyes.
As far as people who don't know me in real life, Jenny Cook was the winner there, tying with Nicole actually, who does know me. Christina also eerily got most of her answers right, which I find amazing since we only barely met at each other's weddings almost 6 years ago!!
Thanks for playing along guys... it was fun!
