Getting to Know Me

I am unashamedly stealing this from my super-glam, Southern Georgia  neighbor over at The Southland Life. I basically think quizzes are the funnest thing next to shopping 'til your arms get bag ridges in them and using inappropriate English saying things like "funnest."

uh oh - it looks like we are both fighting over ryan reynolds. i want to be upset, but instead, i applaud you on your excellent taste. ;)

angel glover. said...

We should totally take a vacay to australia and bora bora. because i'm only slightly obsessed with australia, australians, and their accents. I love when you do these... probably as much as you love filling them out. most likely because of my super nosy self. :)

Chels said...

I can relate to so many of these, haha.
The Proposal is by far my favorite movie!

And I desperately want to visit Australia..

This post is a cool idea! I might have to do it myself if you don't mind :)

Beth said...

8. is this comment long enough?

Lindsey said...

Loved it. You say so many things I say ... i.e. amazeballs and barf. We are basically the same person.

Chelsea said...

Ha! bachelor/bachelorette/bachelor pad are my FAVORITE. They make me so happy. And when they are not on, well my life is a little bluer. When my roommate and I first moved to Atlanta we were without cable for 3 months (because we were super…super.. lazy about finding time to deal with comcast) but that also meant that I was missing The Bachelor…….and I would never let that happen……ever. So each week I would bring my lap top down by the pool, steal internet, download the show, and then bring it back to our apt and watch. I am hardcore like that.

And I love that you know the specific date of the last time you cried. Hahaha! Not that I’m judging, considering I cried when I couldn’t find my friends at the Braves game two weeks ago. Oh life is so hard!!! :)


Michelle said...

HAHA we have so many similarities! I always love learning more about you! The Bachelorette starts soon! WOOHOO! Bora Bora and Australia, when's the flight?! Blogger meet-up there instead? I love Australian accents!! And Ryan Reynolds, such a hottie!

megan said...

Why did you have to move to ATL? We could be twins. Atleast I'll get to see you NEXT WEEKEND! PS - turquoise panties + white pants = hotttt hahah

Ashley said...

Loved getting to know you a little better! My husband loves Ryan Reynolds (weird?) and so I get lucky when he's in a chick flick because he actually wants to see it. I want to go to Bora Bora too. Let's go! I'll pick you up in 30 minutes. GO!
