Eleven Things

February 16, 2012

I'm not going to lie. I'm a bit irritated about writing this right now because this is my second time. I did the draft last night and hit the save button... but did it save? nope. I almost said "whatever, I'm not going to do this" BUT I'm really excited about this post so here I am. Typing everything again... because it was fun!

11 fun things about Me

1. My first name is Cassandra. I'm not a fan... 

2. When I was little I had a speech problem until I took speech therapy at the age of four. Apparently I didn't learn how to use my tongue right? At Christmas one year my mom asked me if I wanted to sit on Santa's lap and I said "He won't understand me". It broke my mom's heart. She always knew what I was saying. 

3. After a very long time of practicing yoga I can now do the Chaturanga Dandasana pose. The first time I did it in class I almost squealed with excitement! I'm so proud of myself. It's harder than it looks... trust me! 

4. I absolutely love being a red head and I don't think I'll ever go back to brunette. 

5. I love music. I can't work, drive, clean or much of anything else without it. 

6. The sun hates me... I take it personally. I can't tan, I burn then freckle. Thankfully I love freckles but I'm not a fan of skin cancer so I try and cover up as much as possible and keep the sun bathing limited. 

7.  I want to go back to school for cosmetology one day... and whenever the time is right I will.

8. BUT for now I love my job. May will be five years I've had my job and after a few different positions and meeting a ton of people I know for a fact I am in the perfect place right now. I'm very lucky to love going to work every day. 

9. I'm a total girl and absolutely LOVE chick flicks. Even if they give us all an unreal expectation for romance. A girl can dream right? 

10. I can't keep plants alive. I was given a beautiful cactus plant that you apparently "can't kill" but I did. I give up trying to have a green thumb. 

11. My favorite kind of beer is a stout. The darker the better!! This surprises a lot of people. I've also been told that I'm a "beer snob"... I usually respond with a "thank you". 

Leslie's 11 Questions

1. If you could raid any celebrity's closet, who would it be and why?
Selena Gomez. Yea, she's young and she's dates a little boy (kidding... I love the Biebs) but her clothes rock! I always love what she wears and she can go from cute and comfortable to sexy and sultry so flawlessly. 

2. If you were a shoe, what would you look like?
Depends on the season.... Spring/Summer, a cute chunky wedge. Fall/Winter, a sexy boot that you can wear with jeans OR a dress. I can't pick one!! 

3. What is your biggest pet peeve?
When people are late for everything!! It's rude. One of my girlfriends is late ALL the time and she knows it drives me crazy! Love her. Strongly dislike her lateness. 

4. Favorite song of all-time?
All-time? That's tough.... Any Celine Dion song would win that. River Deep - Mountain High is probably my favorite though! Lovely memories with Jocie Ashworth singing that song!! 

5. Are you a dog person or a cat person? And why? (If you don't like animals, we can't be friends.)
I used to have a cat. Then I got Bella, my Yorkie-Poo. She won... I gave the cat to a loving family so I guess that makes me a dog person. 

6. You're queen for a day. How do you spend your royal 24 hours?
This is going to sound like a total "suck up answer" but it's the truth. If I were queen for a day I would fly to Cambodia and spend the entire day giving the Cambodian people food, water, love and sharing my faith with them. My bestfriend went on a mission trip with them a few years ago and this picture has always haunted me. 

These sweet boys are playing in a mountain of trash. 
With hardly any clothes on. Look at those smiles.
Yes, I would spend all day loving on these babies and their families.

7. What's the most delicious thing you've ever eaten?
I'm not sure if it's the MOST delicious thing I've ever eaten but it's the first thing that popped in my head. At a small, little Italian restaurant in Asheville you can find these amazing balls of happiness... This is how Fiore's describes it:
"The perfect marriage of sweet and savory! Calimyrna figs stuffed with local basil goat cheese wrapped with prosciutto served crisp over arugula & Chianti reduction."
Yes. You should go visit ASAP! 

8. What scares you the most? (This can be deep and complex or shallow...whateva you feel like!)
Suffering from Alzheimer's one day. I can't imagine anything more scary than losing your memories and knowing the people you love. It's my biggest fear.

9. Which celebrity do you wish would drift off into obscurity?
Right now....? Niki Minaj. After that performance at the Grammy's it's pretty obvious that girl has done lost her mind. Seriously, cray cray!! 

10. You're 16 years old again. What advice would you give your younger self? 
Read your Bible more. I recently found my journal from High School and I wanted to strangle myself. I was so preoccupied with stupid things. 

11. What's your Starbucks order?
If I'm in the mood for coffee I'd order a White Chocolate Mocha. No coffee, most definitely the Spiced Caramel Apple Cider. Mmmm, both are heavenly!!
