In honor of the (limited) return of Kendra’s link-up Answer Me This, I just had to join in. Here are my answers, and be sure to check out the others on the link-up!
1. Any big plans for the summer?
Well, this weekend was our 1st Anniversary, and we spent it in Lancaster. It was a little last minute, but it was so nice to go away with my hubby. And at the end of the month, we will be joining my family for our annual trip to Ocean City, NJ. Mostly is will be relaxing without any real excitement, but that’s why I love it.
In September we have two weddings to attend. My brother’s is the 12th and my cousin’s is the 26th (I guess that’s technically Fall, but, details). Since I’m in both of them, there will be a lot of preparations going on this summer.
2. What is the strangest thing you believed as a child?
I don’t know if it’s strange, but I believed in Santa Claus a lot longer than anyone else in my class did. I distinctly remember being in 3rd grade and arguing with one of the boys. My mom worked second shift at the time, and my reasoning was that she would be entirely too tired to put presents out at midnight when she got home.
3. What is your favorite amusement park ride? (can be a specific one at a specific park or just a type of ride)
I love those really big Ferris Wheels with the benches all around and an umbrella in the middle. Even though the height scares me a tiny bit, I love how calm and quiet it is, especially when you ride it at night, and how you can see the entire park and all the lights from above.
4. What’s on your summer reading list?
I just finished To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han and really enjoyed it, so I’m looking forward to reading the sequel when I get it from the library. I would also like to read Kristin Hannah’s new book The Nightingale, because I always enjoy her books. I also hope to check on or two more classic books off my bucket list and to read one or two autobiographies of saints. Suggestions are welcome!
5. Have you ever fallen asleep in public?
Not for more than a few seconds. I used to do it a lot after I was first married. I think it was just the adjustment of everything, and I had recently started a new job where my shift began at 5:30 am. I would sit at my desk in the morning and sometimes I literally could not keep my eyes open. One of my coworkers found me once and was like, “Are you pregnant?” I wasn’t. I was just tired.
6. What is your favorite smell?
My favorite smell is dinner cooking when I come home from work, because that means I didn’t have to make it 🙂
