Fill in the Blank Friday

My friend Missy at always does these Fill in the Blank Fridays, which seem super fun to me, so I'm going to give it a shot today.
1.   My favorite quote is    My grandma always quotes this one, and I love it. "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent."  Eleanor Roosevelt

2.  A bad habit I have is    Overeating. I have been keeping a food diary since the beginning of January and it helps me stay accountable, but I definitely have the habit of eating more than is necessary.

3.  The first time I felt like a "grown up" was    When I got my first "real job" working as a newspaper reporter. I had only waitressed or worked as a student factory worker before that, and it felt very swanky to have such a grown-up job.

4.  Weekends are  my favorite. I only get to hang out with Jon and Daphne for extended periods of time on Saturdays, and I live for that time. I cry on Sunday nights waiting for the next weekend.

5.  When I was a child I wished my name was     Anything but Joan, because only old ladies were named Joan. All the cool girls I knew had the name Kim, so I kinda wanted that. When I was in 7th grade, I tried to get my friends to call me Katie, which is an abbreviation of my middle name, but it never caught on.

6.  I wish    that people would love Jon's book as much as I do and that it would be successful enough for one of us to stay home with Daphne. As much as we love Cheri, we would really prefer to raise her ourselves .

7.  A secret I have is  geeeez. I'm pretty open, actually. It's hard for me to filter myself. I guess one secret I have is that though I really love animals, I'm not really sure I want a pet. I'm afraid of cleaning up after them, I think.


  1. go grandma! Love the quote. My grandmother always says, "a little white lie never hurt anyone" hahaha!

  2. Woot woot for the shout out. Thanks.
    And LOVE LOVE LOVE the glitter hands! It would be awesome if you could find a way to have glitter on your hands at all times like that.
