It’s finally Friday, and I decided to mix up my blog post a little for today! Although I have shared a lot of the reasoning behind why I wanted to start a blog, I haven’t really shared a lot of personal information with you guys, and I thought what better way to get to know me than the “Get to Know Me Tag.” In this post, I will be answering 30 random questions about myself! You may be surprised at some of my answers!
1.) What is your middle name?
My middle name is Riley! My mom originally wanted this to be my first name, but my dad wasn’t the biggest fan! Fun Fact: I used to HATE my middle name when I was younger, and would be embarrassed when I had to say it, but now I wish it was my first name! It’s so pretty and is definitely more unique than Lauren!
2.) What is your favorite color?
As if you couldn’t tell from my website theme… pink, duh!
3.) Who was your first best friend?
My first best friend was probably my cousin, Katelyn! She was born a few years before I was, and we used to be inseparable!
4.) How tall are you?
I’m 5’6, but my doctor is convinced that I’m only 5’5! Every time I measure myself not at the doctors, I end up being 5’6, but when my doctor does it, I always measure 5’5. I know that the doctor is probably right, but I would prefer to be 5’6, so I lie sometimes. Whoops!
5.) Cats or Dogs?
Dogs! I hate cats! (Sorry cat lovers) A cat chased me when I was younger, and I have been terrified ever since!
6.Funniest moment throughout School?
Not sure if this is considered funny, but on my very first day of my freshman year in high school, I slipped and fell down an entire set of stairs in front of everyone! I was mortified then, but I laugh at it now!
7.) How many countries have you visited?
I’ve only been to the U.S. and Bermuda. I definitely need to step up my travel game!
8.) Are you in/have you gone to college?
I am currently in college and am going into my junior year. I am a Strategic Communication major with a minor in Marketing.
9.) What was your favorite/worst subject in High School?
My favorite subject was English! I love to read and write- hence, my blog. My least favorite- Math! I get headaches from numbers.
10.) What is your Favorite drink?
I am a huge coffee and tea fan! Otherwise, I’ll drink water or lemonade!
11.) What is your favorite animal?
My favorite animal for a pet is a dog, but in general, I think baby pigs or baby tigers are adorable.
12.) What is your favorite perfume?
Currently, Versace Bright Crystal, but I mix it up!
13.) Tea or Coffee?
Coffee! It makes my whole morning.
14.) What would you (or have you) name(d) your children?
Don’t even get me started on this question… I don’t have kids yet, but am obsessed with baby names. The boy name I have been loving lately, however, is Grayson/ Greyson! (Let me know your favorite names below!!)
15.) What Sports do you play/Have you played?
I have tried just about every sport in the book, and have failed miserably at all of them. Basketball, soccer, tennis, volleyball, t-ball, softball… shall I continue?
16.) What is your favorite book?
The Help by Kathryn Stockett is my favorite book of all time! If you haven’t read it – go out and buy yourself a copy right now! I read it before the movie came out and still refuse to see it to this day because I don’t want it to ruin the book for me!
17.) Who are some of your favorite YouTubers?
I have a serious obsession with Alex Garza and Mallory Ervin! I talk about them like I’m friends with them, but sadly, I am not!
18.) What is your favorite movie?
So basic… The Notebook, of course!
19.) Are you Single or Taken?
This reminds me of those Facebook tags that you would do in middle school. Anyone remember? In the Facebook world, I think my answer would look a little something like this: Taken ❤
20.) Whats your idea of an ideal first date?
First dates can be awkward, so I would keep it short, and somewhere you can talk to and get to know the other person! For me, I would like a coffee or lunch date! Definitely not the movies or anything along those lines!
21.) How many Girlfriends/Boyfriends have you had?
I’ve only had one official boyfriend and that is my current!
22.) Favorite memory from childhood?
My grandmother used to have a beach house, and all of the cousins from my mom’s side of the family would go down for the summer. I have so many great memories from that beach house, and miss it so much!
23.) Do you speak any different languages and how well?
Hablo un poco de español.
24.) Do you have any siblings?
I have one younger sister named Kathryn and a cute little dog brother named Champ!
25.) How would you describe your fashion sense?
Although I have tried to be trendy and edgy, my style is very preppy, girly, and classic.
26.) What is your favorite restaurant?
The Cheesecake Factory or Chilis! The Cheesecake Factory has so many options, but Chilis is a childhood favorite.
27.) What are some of your favorite TV shows?
When I fall, I fall hard. The shows I’m about to share with you are addicting, so be careful. Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, Young and Hungry, Jane the Virgin, and Drop Dead Diva. Obsessed!
28.) PC or Mac?
I use a Mac, because for me, it’s easier. There are a lot of great PCs out there too though!
29.) What phone do you have? (iOS v Android?)
I have an IPhone but have no idea what model or make it is! Phones aren’t my thing, for sure.
30 Tell us one of your bad habits!
I bite my nails, which is gross, I know! I try so hard not to, but anytime I’m nervous, I just do it. I also say like a lot, which I hate!
Well, that was all of the questions for this tag! I hope you all enjoyed this, even though I know it was a little different than what I normally post. If you do this tag on your blog, let me know! I’d love to read some of your answers. Also, leave your suggestions for future posts in the comments! I want to write what you want to read!
