A Little Bit of Ashley….

Yes, I was totally singing that one song when I titled this post. I don’t know what song that is called, but you know which one I’m talking about right? Well… if not it wouldn’t be the first time I looked like a crazy person when trying to think of the name of a song. : )

A couple of weeks ago, Kelly from
tagged my in a blog post.
Here is a link to
Kelly’s post so you can get to know her too!

I normally don’t participate in these type of things, but I have sort of unofficially declared that I will be sharing a little bit more about ME and not just the crafts I make.
I’ve always been pretty private. I was the girl that always hung out with the guys and I just never really “shared my feelings” a whole lot. So this is me – trying to let you all know a little bit more about me.

Don’t laugh too hard! : )

(me and the hubs on our honeymoon back when the kids didn’t drain every ounce of energy we have!)

What is your favorite meal?
Hmm… wow, only one meal? Like what would I eat if it were my last meal? Probably everything in sight. I’ve never been real big on meat though… something about it. I eat it, but if someone starts talking about how it used to walk around or that it’s muscle, it somehow very quickly looses its taste. I would say I much prefer chicken over anything else. So let’s go with that.. some kind of chicken. Then rice is definitely one of my favorites! I’m pretty sure it should be its own food group of some kind. I’m HUGE on veggies. I love them… pretty much all of them, except asparagus. I can’t even describe the taste of it it’s so gross! So… chicken. rice. and real fresh green beans (not the canned ones)
FYI I don’t like food from a can. I would so much rather have all vegetables fresh!

You can only listen to {3} albums for the rest of your life, what would they be & why?
Pretty sure I demonstrated my musical knowledge at the beginning of this post. My husband is a musician and can tell you who is playing based on the drumbeat.. I think over time I have just slowly relied on him to answer all musical questions. We were actually talking about this in the car the other day and I have decided that I don’t really prefer music with lyrics. I don’t really listen to whole albums either… I know, I’m weird. We mainly listen to Christian music (Hillsong, Jesus Culture, etc.). I think I don’t listen to “albums” because I don’t like listening to the same person for 12 songs… I like different things. Ok, I’ll answer the question now : ) I LOVE Bing Crosby. He’s one of my favorites. I like big band music too… sometimes I think I was born in the wrong decade! and Jazz… I love jazz! That’s all I got.

What is your favorite item in your closet?
Something I would love to work on is actually getting out of my t shirts. I was also the kid in school who wore their pajamas. Man.. I’m just letting out all my weirdness out in one post. Probably should have spread this out a little so you didn’t go running for the unsubscribe button… haha! So yes, I was the girl, in pajamas, talking to all the boys, oh and I don’t like music with lyrics. haha. So if I had to pick something I would say that I love my scarfs, I just started buying them and they are pretty fun to wear. Since we are moving to Wisconsin I might actually get to keep them on without sweating! YAY!

When is the last time you cried?
In case you haven’t been reading my blog I am moving to Wisconsin this weekend away from ALL my family so needless to say I have been pretty teary eyed the last few days! : ( I am going to miss my family more than I could ever say! My mom and sister are my best friends EVER!

What is your favorite TV show of all time?
Finally a question I can just answer straight out! My favorite show is…
Most of you probably haven’t heard of it. It’s on USA. I could watch this show all.day.long! I love murder/crime mysteries and my husband loves stupid comedy, this seriously is a perfect mesh for us!
I also love the Office, the Nanny, and of course I Love Lucy. We are also watching Lost right now on Netflix (only like 7 years late)

What is your favorite movie? 
Hmm… this is a tough one!
Braveheart has always been a favorite
Waking Ned Divine is awesome (its an Irish comedy! – must see!)
There are just too many to list so I will leave you with those ; )

What would your dream vacation destination be?
I would love to go to Fiji. I would also love to go somewhere with lots and lots of snow and mountains!

Describe your personality in three words.
It’s always so hard to describe yourself. I would say…
Relaxed. Stubborn. Balanced
I’m super laid back and try not to stress about the daily activities. Obviously I do, but in general I’m very laid back. I am also always right. Yup, never wrong. Balanced just seems to fit. I’ve taken personality tests before and I’m always the very small percentage that is a little bit of everything and don’t lean towards one personality type.

What is the one make-up item you absolutely have to have on your face every day?
I don’t wear make up often. Probably 1-2 times a week. Probably because I am always with my kids. If I do go somewhere I usually throw on some powder.

Dream dinner party guest list! (Three people, living or dead)
Lucille Ball, my mom’s mom (I like to think I’m a little like her), my mom’s brother (he passed away before I got to meet him)

Why did you start blogging?
I originally started blogging to promote my etsy shop, but I soon figured out now that I LOVE blogging and it gives me a little bit of my own in life. I love finding all the inspiration and seeing what other people are doing. The blog world is where I go to relax from my daily activities. : )


So there you have it… a little bit more info about me. If you haven’t already run for the hills make sure and check back this week I am posting as part of the Crafty Quickies. It is full of crafts that can be done in 15 minutes or less! Pretty cool stuff!
