Hey everyone! Today I’ll be doing another tag: The Get To Know Me Tag! I was looking for a tag that would allow you to find out a little bit more about me so any current readers or new readers could get some “behind the scenes” lookies and this one looked particularly interesting because all of the questions are very unique. Leave me a link in the comments below if you’ve done any Get To Know Me Tags on your blog/social media because I love reading through them!
- Are you named after anyone?
I was named after the KISS song, Shandi. I’ll leave a link for the music video here. You probably haven’t heard of it because most KISS fans haven’t. It wasn’t very popular, and with good reason. It’s definitely not one of their best songs.
- When was the last time you cried?
The last time I cried was a couple nights ago actually. I cried due to laughing too hard during a Facetime call with my mom. We were talking about peoples voices and I made some comment that just had me cracking up until I literally cried because that’s obviously how hilarious I am.
- Do you have kids?
Yes! I’m a lifestyle blogger with a lean towards mommyhood. I have three kids: Gibson (3), Monroe (turning 2 this month!) and Ramsey (2 months). I’m also mommy to our four dogs!
- If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?
That’s such a tough question to answer! I’m a very Type A personality and I definitely like things done a certain way. I’d like to think I’d be friends with myself but I don’t think I’d get along with another Type A. I guess it really depends on what other person I was.
- Do you use sarcasm a lot?
Yes, I am an incredibly sarcastic person in person.
- What’s the first thing you notice about people?
I think a lot of it depends on the situation. Sometimes it’s physical features, sometimes its behaviors in specific social settings. It’s very different depending on the circumstances.
- What is your eye color?
I have brown eyes :).
- Scary movie or happy endings?
I love them both! I’m a huge fan of scary movies, but there’s nothing quite like a Happy Ending! It really just depends on what kind of mood I’m in that day.
- Favorite smells?
I LOVE the smell of chlorine. It just takes me straight back to summers as a kid. I also really like that fresh paint and wood smell of new houses or stores like Lowes. It just smells weirdly clean to me. I have no idea why, but I love going to tour model homes just because it always smells sooo good to me.
- What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home?
The furthest I’ve actually been would be to Canada, I guess? When I was a kid. I always skipped out on family vacations to the UK, so that would be the farthest that I’ve actually traveled.
- Do you have any special talents?
I can pick things up with my toes like I can with my fingers. I honestly thought everyone could do it until my mom saw me grab something I dropped with my foot and was like “what the hell are you doing?”. She then informed me that it wasn’t as common as I thought.
- Where were you born?
I was born in Ohio!
- What are your hobbies?
I have a lot of “hobbies”. I like to DIY, I love any and all beauty topics. I’m very into movies. I enjoy fashion and cross stitching. I’m kind of all over the board, but I tend to just try things that interest me and several of them end up sticking.
- Do you have any pets?
We have four dogs! We have Rocky (a golden retriever & Chow mix), Bambi (an Aussie Healer & German Shepard mix), Lexi, (a chihuahua & Dachshund mix), and Jagger (a chihuahua & Pomeranian mix).
- Do you have any siblings?
I have a little sister that lives in Ohio. My husband has 12 siblings.
- What do you want to be when you grow up?
I already am grown and doing exactly what I want to be doing! But when I was a kid, I really wanted to be in HR or a social worker. I’m a Type A personality, remember? I really love paperwork. . .don’t judge. Someone has to do it.
- Who was your first best friend?
My first best friend was probably my neighbor, a boy named Justin. I don’t remember any friends before him, and I met him before I started Kindergarten, so I’m calling him my first bestie, lol. His mother was my babysitter for years, so we spent a ton of time together.
- How tall are you?
- Funniest moment throughout School?
That requires some serious thought. I don’t know what would be considered funny. The funniest thing in my opinion I guess, would be how I met my husband. We went to the same high school and I hated him in high school. He was a very pompous jock. I never talked to him and basically wrote him off. A couple years later, we ended up working at the same car dealership together and he was almost like a completely different person. The nicest guy you’d ever meet. It’s not reeeeally a high school memory, but it’s close enough:).
- How many countries have you visited?
The only country I’ve visited outside of the US is Canada.
- What was your favorite/worst subject in High School?
My favorite subject was English. I always did very well and took Honors English for most of high school. My worst subject was Math. I always just found it very boring and repetitive.
- What is your Favorite drink? Animal? Perfume?
My favorite drink is Mountain Dew. My favorite animal is either a giraffe or an elephant. My favorite perfume is Marc Jacobs “Decadence”.
- What would you (or have you) name your children?
My children are named Gibson, Monroe and Ramsey.
- What Sports do you play/Have you played?
I’ve played several sports over my school years. Now I don’t play any, I get enough exercise just hanging out with my kids! I’m so excited for my kids to start playing sports though!
- Who are some of your favorite YouTubers?
My favorite YouTubers are myself (super modest), LoveMeg, Keep Calm and Clean, Kristen Kasper, ILoveBeingAMommy, ItsKeerstin, and mesijesibeauty.
- How many Girlfriends/Boyfriends have you had?
It really depends on your classification. Like, serious relationships? 2, including my husband.
- Favorite memory from childhood?
My favorite memory from my childhood is all of the times spent with my grandmother before she passed. She used to make homemade bubbles that we would blow in the yard, she would take me to see the train at the end of the street, she taught me the beauty and art of yard-saling. She made everything she did fun.
- How would you describe your fashion sense?
Simple & Comfy. I live most days in jeans & a t-shirt. Sometimes some fancier shirts. Rarely leggings. Something that I’m okay with leaving the house in but that is comfortable for me to clean in.
- What phone do you have? (iOS v Android?)
I have an iPhone X!
- Tell us one of your bad habits!
One of my bad habits is biting my nails. I hate it because I am constantly trying to grow my nails out and I just can’t stop! Leave me any suggestions to quit in the comments below! And putting hot sauce/ No Bite on them doesn’t work for me. :/.
This was so much fun and some of these questions really make you think! If you’ve done a tag like this, drop it in the comments! I’d love to read some!
