Eight Question Friday :)

Alright…not much is going on.  I came across these questions over on Sonja’s blog, and it sounded like fun! :)

1. If you're a reader, what's your favorite book?

This is a tough one!  I love reading, so it’s really hard for me to single out just one book…how about I single out one author? :) I love me some Nicholas Sparks.  And I’m excited about his new book coming out soon, Safe Haven.  I think part of it is because ALL of his books are based in North Carolina, and that’s the only place I’ve ever lived.  And I love a good love story. :)

2. Why did you choose the career you are in?

Well, I took an accounting class my senior year of high school, and it just seemed to fit.  I thought I would go into teaching prior to that.  It would have been a mistake!  I can’t deal with other people’s kids, especially those that aren’t family! I’m awful, I know!!

3. Dream car, something practical or something flashy?

Probably a little of both?  I love SUVs.  So, it would definitely be something like that.  Hhhmmm…probably a Range Rover?  I think they’re sexy…all black, with tinted windows, and nice rims. :) It’s a dream, right?  However, I do appreciate a muscle car.  But it has to have custom exhaust, nice rims, and tinted windows.  Marc has so spoiled my tastes! :)

4. Would you rather be a giver or a receiver, be honest?

Well, while I do love to receive a great gift, I’d much rather give.  I love to see a person’s face when you’ve picked a gift just for them, and they absolutely love it.  That’s one of the best feelings! :)

5. Are you a spender or a saver?

I guess I’m a little of both.  I like the money I’ve earned!  I try to save my money and use it on something that I really, really want.  Especially if it’s a large purchase, I’ll debate whether I really want/need it, and then save up for it. :)

6. Where did you meet your significant other?

I met Marc at church.  My youth pastor’s husband sold Marc’s mom her house, and invited them to church.  It was super intimidating, as it was a Youth Sunday (where the youth group does the entire church service and lessons, etc), to look out and see someone new, semi-close to my age, and have to give my testimony.  Oh, well…we’ve been friends ever since, and we’ve been a couple for almost 10 years. :)

7. Are you a morning person or a night owl?

Neither…I usually get all of my motivation and energy in the afternoon.  That’s when I can really get most stuff done – work, crafts, cleaning.

8. What has been your biggest achievement?

To date, I would say graduating college and obtaining a job that I enjoy.  I like what I do, so that means a lot to me. :) Having a family of my own (larger than Marc, myself, and our four-legged pups) would be a bigger achievement.  That’s our dream. :)


Alright…time to get back to work! ;) Happy Friday, y’all! :)

I love your blog name! I'm your newest follower. BTW, I live in NC too and am a huge Nicholas Sparks fan. I can't wait for his new book to come out.
