Do You Like Your Name - 30 Odd Questions #Blogfest

I  suppose I can always jump on some wagons every now and then. So while I"m cooking and looking up recipes, I might as well give it a go. 

What did you want to be when you were a kid? 
I've always wanted to be a psychologist. I believe it suits my character and I think I'd like to help people who struggle mentally so they can have a balanced life. 

Which “Friends'” character do you relate to the most? Why?
Like Cathy, I went to this site to see which character I'm relating to most and got Monica. haha. I don't watch many episodes of Friends, so I needed the help. 

 My “Friends’ character came back as…You got: Monica  – you’re a little uptight, but you’re a great cook, a great host, and a great friend. 

Do you like your name? Why? 
Yes. I've always loved that I have a French name. I still do not understand how my mother came by it, but I love it :D  
She did spell it a bit different though and of course since I didn't know her, I spelled it quite different, but how it's usually spelled and it works great for me. 

Are you messy or neat? 
Both or somewhere between organized chaos :) 

How tall are you? 
I am 5'5 and would have liked to be taller :)
How tall were you when you were 10? 
I do not know, but I think I was shorter...haha. 

What is your guilty pleasure? 
Not sure I have any....let's go with candy crush, but I don't think that's it because I just began playing. 

What are you saving money for right now?
I would like a laptop , but I think getting the ping pong table for our family interests me more since it's for the whole family. 

How many Pringle’s can you eat at once? 
I have not eaten pringles in many years....

Tea or coffee? 
Both. Mostly tea. And many Sundays after church I'll get coffee or sometimes my husband gets it for me. 

Are you an introvert or an extrovert? 
At times I’m both but mostly I’m an extrovert especially those I know or feel comfortable around.

What will be your Halloween costume this year? 
I don't dress up for halloween. 

Sweet or salty? 
Either, but sweet mostly 

Favorite social media? 
I used facebook most often than the others.

Who is the last person you kissed? 
My kids

What is your favorite breakfast? 
Avocados with eggs and cinnamon roll

When is your birthday?
I am not sure, but I'll go with Jan 1st, 2nd, 28 and May 19th. Those are what my mother told me. She finally ended on May 19th with a paper that said it, so *shrugs* 
I don't celebrate anymore. Never did really. 

When did you start your blog? 
Since July 2008. Quite a long time eh. But I've been waning lately because of responsibilities, but I love it. 

What is your opinion on the Kardashians? First, they are over-rated. I’ve seen far prettier girls in real life or other celebrities than any of them. Second, the drama is absolutely crazy judging on the tabloid headlines and finally, I just don’t care. (I'll stick with Cathy's answer)

How would you describe your style?
Casually comfy

What color is your hair? 
Black and gray

What color socks are you wearing?
Blue and black

What is your dream job? 
I am doing it. I am a SAHM, but I desire to be a psychologist. 

Dogs or cats? 
Both, but I prefer if they aren't inside my rooms shedding everywhere. 

What makes you weird?  I guess being normal because everywhere I turn I see abnormalities in one form or another, so I’m sure normal is weird to most. (Again sticking with Cathy's answer)

Celebrity crush? 
I think it was that guy that look like my husband um.....He is in the English Patient. I can't remember his name. 
And The Rock Dwayne Johnson :D

Opinion on cigarettes?  It’s a nasty habit with huge health risks to the smoker and the folks around them. Vaping is really big now. Everyone says that’s safer than cigarettes but you just wait in 10, 20, or 30 years from now they’ll find that Vaping is damaging, too. (You'll see how much Cathy and I agree :)

Do you want/have children? How many?
I have two. I want five. I want to adopt two and have another or even three more of my own.
I love children.

Three favorite boy names. 
Matthew, David, Alexander

Three favorite girl names. 
Victoria, Anne Marie, Suzanne

  1. Colette,

    So glad you joined the fun! WOW, girlie you and I are alike on many of these questions. That's so cool! You got me on your birthday, though. Why the confusion? Dwayne Johnson is a handsome young man and he seems like a nice person, too. I wonder what he'd look like with hair. lol When I was in my late 20s I thought I'd like to have 6 kids but by the time our 3rd was born I was ready to call it quits. lol This is not a reflection on my children. They were really good kids but the immense responsibilities proved to be a bit overwhelming at times and I knew I didn't have anymore of me to give to a larger family. It's great to get to know you a little better and I'm glad you got to read my anwers to these questions. Thanks for sharing your answers and playing along, my friend! :)

    1. Thank you Cathy :)
      All I can say is that I was born :) My mother just had some time remembering the right date, so she told me a few before finding the right one...I guess.

      Dwayne with hair. lol. Now that would be something. Did you see Central Intelligence?
      That's why I like him, he seems to be a nice person.

      Oh Cathy I desire so much for more children! But alas I'm getting old. So I hope soon

  2. Thanks so much for joining the blogfest, Colette! Any friend of Cathy's is a friend of mine, too. ☺ Unusual to not know your exact birthdate, but it's still worth celebrating. Like an affirmation of life. We don't dwell on the year around here. Sounds like you love being a SAHM and I hope your wish for more kids comes true. Cheers!

  3. I'm surprised that you're 5'5". You seem really tall to me. :) That's a fun q&a. I saw you post that your boy's getting braces. Let me know some pros and cons once you get into it a bit, would ya? I think we'll be headed that route sooner rather than later over here too.

  4. Lovely to meet you - isn't it fun to do a question and answer every now and then? I like getting little insights into the life of others and how they view their world.

  5. Your answer for celeb crush -"looks like my husband"- for the win! Men should learn to answer that question thusly, lol!

  6. I am Monica too, I have an obsession for neatness and organization. My son and husband are a contrast to this and love to have the organized chaos around them, but thanks to me... LOL :D
    Good to meet you through this blogfest, Colette. Have a great weekend ahead. Cheers :)

  7. lol yeah, normal may seem weird these days indeed. Yep, vaping will turn out to be bad as well. Humans are rather short sighted. You sure want plenty of kiddos at your sea. They make life fun indeed.

  8. 5 children? Are you sure you don't want to be a teacher?! I do love that you are a SAHM for your kids, though. That's wonderful! :)

    With Love,


Thank you for visiting. I love your comments and will visit you also if you have a hyperlink. #ThisIsTheDay
