8 for 8

Dear Sam over at Simply Sam   tagged me in a lovely survey that's going around. She asked 8 questions, I answer them and then I get to ask 8 new questions and tag 8 more people. Lets hope that I can come up with 8 more questions and 8 people, and then we can get this show on the road! We'll start with my answers to her questions

1. What is your favorite thing about fall?
 Everything! I love fall so much. Whenever I think of fall I just get excited. You know when you have big happy life events, your mind just seems to tie those things to the weather? I love fall because it reminds me of happy newlywededness. I love to watch the leaves change, and to crunch the leaves when I walk down the street. I love the cool mornings when I just need a light jacket, and the cool nights when you need a blanket to snuggle up on the couch. I love it because I get to pull out my yummy warm duvet that has been too hot to use since May. I just love the change that is in the atmosphere and people are reminded that the holidays are coming up so it just seems like people are happier.
2. What was the last movie you saw in theaters? Did you like it?
 I think it was The Switch if I remember correctly, and I was so surprised by how much I liked it. Hal did not want to see this movie, but he is amazing and tagged along anyway, and even he was surprised that he liked it. It was cute, and who doesn't like Team Jenn and Jason Bateman, come on, have you ever even see Arrested Development? I now take notice when someone "makes love to their food" also known as going "mmmm" while you're eating. Plus, the little boy in this is SO cute.

3. Do you have any interesting family history? What is it? (distant relative of someone famous, a cute story about your grandparents, family heritage, etc)
Let see, nothing too amazing. My grandmother came over from Denmark with just her sister when she was I believe a teenager, and we still have the dress that she came over in. And I fit into it. Isn't that crazy? It's super heavy and thick and hot, but it's still in pretty good shape. Oh, umm, I'm related to William Faulkner. 

4. If you were to write an autobiography, what would you title it?
I guess that would depend on why I'm having an autobiography written about me. I assume if I did something awesome the title would be some awesomely cheesy play on words about what I did. But if I had to do it based off of now, it would be something like: Stumbling Through Life :An awkward girl's journey to make the world smile. Something real cheesy like that, and just from that you can already know I'm awkward and clumsy. Now you already know the premise of the book.

5. What are you doing for Halloween this year and if you're dressing up, what are you going to dress up as?
Am I doing anything for Halloween? Ha, have you ever met me? Well, actually a lot of you haven't since this is a whole internet thing, but for your enlightenment. Halloween is my favorite holiday. Love it! I'm thinking an Arrested Development party. What do you think? Hal and I as George Sr. and Lucille? Awesome? i thought so too. 

6. Who is your role model?
Hmm, my role model? That's kind of a hard one. Only one person? Well then, if I can only choose one, I'd have to say my mom. The most important thing to her was her family. I think that's a very commendable thing in today's society where a lot of people leave their family for what they assume will bring them personal happiness. She cared more about her kids than anything else in the world, and made sure that we all knew it. I hope that I can be like that. I hope that people in my life know I care so much about them.

7. What is one of your happiest memories?
Only one? Wow, this is getting harder. I'm going to be not too original and say my wedding day. How can your wedding day not be happy? Mine was, there were so many people that made sure to show Hal and I that they supported us and were happy for us. I am so appreciative of that. Of all the people who came out to help and to say hello. And also, getting to be sealed to my Mr. and to know that he's mine and I'm his is an amazing feeling that will stay with me always.
8. Describe yourself using the letters of your name! (ex. S-silly A-artistic M-music lover)
Now that's kind of funny because Sam wrote these questions, and we have the same name, so I guess that means I'll try and do this without using the same words, even though she totally stole my S answer.   S- Scotophilia         A- Awkward     M- Mulism   
Question, when I google synonyms of silly because I'm stumped and stupid and simpleminded come is that a synonym? Apparently someone doesn't like silly people. And when I google words that start with M why does mail order bride come up, what is wrong with these websites? But check out this awesome website  It's so cool. It has huge lists of unusual words for each letter of the alphabet. So go there to see what Scotophilia and Mulism mean. P.S. when you search Mulism...almost all of the websites are misspellings of Muslim. 

And onto my list of questions. Woo!

1.If you could live anywhere in the entire world, where would you live?
2. What's the one accessory you can't leave the house without?
3. If someone gave you $5,000 what is the first thing you would do with it?
4.What is the one thing you're afraid of most?
5.  If you could only read one book for the rest of your life, what would it be?
6.What is the one TV show you can't miss?
7. Edward or Mr. Darcy?
8. What is your signature look?

I though The Switch was really good too. I <3 Jason Bateman and will always be Team Jenn! That's awesome you're related to William Faulkner! And how neat that you have your grandmother's dress from that day (and that it fits!). Your idea for an Arrested Development party sounds awesome so I definitely think you should do it. Your mom sounds like the sweetest mom in the world! And sorry for stealing 'silly' :) I'm going to have to go look up your words now. At first I felt dumb because I didn't know what they meant, so I'm glad you went on to tell us to go look them up.
