Tag! Get To Know Me!


My soul sista, Sandra from It’s Tidy Time, tagged me last week in her post and because I am late for everything, I am finally getting in on the action! She would like me to bare my soul to you all by answering these questions:

1. Are you named after someone? Yes! My middle name is Theresa, after my mother’s father’s sister. Fun fact: My mom actually calls me Tess (short for Theresa) and never Sarah. It was quite confusing to my friends growing up when they would hear my mom call me Tess for the first time. For my first name, my dad wanted an “S” name and my mom thought of Sarah after Sarah Pirtle, a children’s folk singer that she knows. Plus, I’m pretty sure that about 50% of all of the other parents that had girls in 1982 also named them Sarah, so it probably seemed like a logical thing to do.

2. When was the last time you cried? I do not cry, so… I guess I’d say that whenever the last time I was cutting an onion without my contacts in was probably the last time I cried. Let me tell you a few things that would make me cry: If yoga pants were outlawed, if Sex and the City was outlawed, if my Keurig broke, or if anything bad happened to my family or my friends.

3. Do you have kiddos? No, I am a childless liar, catfishing you all. Just kidding! Yup – two girls, ages two and three.

4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself? You know it! I would enjoy endless hours, watching Sex and the City and wearing yoga pants with my friend version of myself. Yay!!

5. Do you have a guilty pleasure? This one is hard. Hmmm. Buying clothes for my kids on Etsy late at night when I think it doesn’t count because the rest of the world is sleeping. Does that qualify?

6. Do you like your handwriting? I have the ability to write in handwriting that I like. But most of the time I’m scrawling things down quickly while walking around at work and it looks horrible and barely even resembles actual letters. So, I guess I would answer this one with “sometimes”.

7. What’s your favorite cereal? I don’t really have a favorite. I have a number of cereals that I would eat if I needed to, but I’m not huge on cereal. Right now I’m into Bear Naked granola on Greek yogurt. Stop asking such hard questions, Soul Sista!

8. What’s the first thing you notice about people? Besides their appearance, I’d probably say their mood. I deal with people all day long at work and try to gauge moods so I know what level of charm I have to put on before diving in.

9. What is your eye color? Blue. Kinda gray, but mostly blue.

10. Scary movie or happy endings? I do like a scary movie every once in a while, as long as OB is there for me to cling onto for dear life, but I’d definitely say happy endings!

11. Favorite TV show? Sex and the City! I want to retire from my job because E! plays Sex and the City from 1:00 to 3:00 or sometimes even 4:00 every afternoon and all I wanna do is watch it. I don’t care if I have every DVD; something about watching it when it’s actually on is so satisfying. Ok, now I know my guilty pleasure – we recently got a new TV and an expanded cable package in the media room at work, so my guilty pleasure is that I go in there every day at some point after 1:00 and before 3:00 and put SATC on while I eat my lunch. It actually makes my day better!

12. Summer or winter? Summer. I can’t stand the snow. Remember the time that I tried to drive in the snow?

13. Hugs or kisses? I am not a touchy-feely affectionate type. Not at all. I hug and kiss my kids all the time, so with them it’s both. High fives for everyone else!

14. What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home? Well I’m not a geographer, but I’d have to say Ireland.

15. Do you have any special talents? The first time I ever threw a dart, I hit a dead center bull’s-eye. Then I handed all the other darts to someone else and walked away. I have a perfect dart average, or score, or whatever you’d call it.

16. Where were you born? Northampton, MA.

17. What are your hobbies? I used to love to run before I had kids, but now ain’t nobody got time for that! My hobbies these days are blogging, painting my nails and watching Bravo.

18. Do you have any pets? Yes, OB and I got kittens back in 2004. It was that time in our relationship when we weren’t old enough or committed enough for kids, but thought we’d give having pets a whirl. We’d recently killed at least five fish in our attempt to have a fish tank, so figured we would be great cat parents. They survived, grew up and are now grownup cats named Lucky and Jinxy.

19. Favorite movie? You get two guesses. Did you guess Sex and the City or Sex and the City 2? Either one would be correct. I think I like the first one a little better, but they are both masterpieces.

20. What color is your car? Silver. I’ve only had two cars and both have been silver.

21. What do you want to be when you grow up? Ten years of working at my job have made me realize that what I really want to be when I grow up is someone who works for themself. I’d love to start my own business and should probably get on that soon so that I can then retire to my desired life full of afternoons of SATC.

Thanks for tagging me, Sandra! I wish that we could get together in our yoga pants, eating candy and watching Punky in real life!! I’m now passing on the love and tagging these bloggers if they wanna play:
