I Mustache You Some Questions

I Mustache You Some Questions

I was tagged for this post by Busy Brunette’s Bookshelf.

Four names people call me other than my real name:

  1. My maiden name (this started in high school and never really stopped)
  2. A spin-off of my maiden name that will give everyone the wrong idea if I share it here
  3. Mom

Four jobs I’ve had:

  1. Waitress
  2. Cashier at a BBQ joint
  3. Swim Coach
  4. Leadership Development Consultant

Four movies I would/have watched more than once (I’m super high brow on movie selections, I tell ya!):

  1. Cruel Intentions 
  2. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
  3. Varsity Blues
  4. Friday Night Lights (the TV series, not the movie…but it’s so good that it supplanted any 4th movie that I could have mentioned here) 

Four books I’d recommend (how do I choose just 4?!):

  1. The Wife by Meg Wolitzer (the best book I reviewed in January)
  2. My Sunshine Away by M.O. Walsh (my favorite book of 2015 so far)
  3. The Lords of Discipline by Pat Conroy (the only addition to my All-Time Favorites List since I started this blog)
  4. The Wife, The Maid, and The Mistress by Ariel Lawhon (my most recommended book of 2014)

Four places I have been:

  1. Deltaville, Virginia
  2. Australia
  3. Jackson Hole, Wyoming
  4. Charleston, South Carolina

Four places I’d rather be right now:

  1. Here…
    River Reading
  2. Reading an amazing book, preferably at the above location, but I’ll take an amazing book anywhere!
  3. In a “relaxation room” at a spa
  4. Anywhere warm – we’ve had snow on the ground for what seems like weeks…

Four things I don’t eat:

  1. Grapefruit
  2. Green peppers (but I love yellow, red and orange)
  3. There’s not much I “don’t” eat…I pretty much love food, all food!

Four of my favorite foods:

  1. Cheese
  2. Shellfish (oysters, crabs, clams, mussels, lobsters, scallops, sea urchin…any I left out?)
  3. Avocado
  4. Bread pudding (both sweet and savory)

Four TV shows that I watch:

  1. The Affair
  2. The Bachelor / Bachelorette / Bachelor in Paradise (and lamenting the loss of Bachelor Pad)
  3. Nashville
  4. Top Chef

Four things I am looking forward to this year (2015):

  1. Seeing my kids grow up even more
  2. A couple new releases by favorite authors: Beatriz Williams, Erik Larson, and Greg IlesTiny Little Thing, Dead Wake, Bone Tree
  3. My blog makeover (which is coming soon!) 
  4. Competing in my first outdoor sprint triathlon this summer  

Four things I’m always saying:

  1. “Seriously?”
  2. “Ya’ll” (even though I live in the North)
  3.  “Give me a second/minute”
  4. “I don’t have time…”

I’m now tagging…

  3. “Cruel Intentions”?!? I haven’t seen that one in SOOOO long! I’m going to have to look it up now on Amazon/Netflix and see if I can find it somewhere; I’m going to have to watch it again, thanks to you. I think everyone should try out waitressing at least once, so you’ve definitely fulfilled that requirement. I also find it really difficult to choose “favorite” books; I always think, “you mean other than the one I just read?” or something like that! I’m now dying to find out what this secret “spin-off” name is; one of these days… 🙂 Thanks for sharing this, Sarah!

      Yes! It absolutely is! But, we watched it (again) this Xmas and picked out all the editing flubs…there are many. It’s a fun game. Still absolutely love the movie and still die laughing even though I’ve probably seen it 20+ times.

    Have you tried abalone? It’s a favourite of mine. I’m pretty sure it’s shellfish. I love all the other shellfish you listed too!

      Hmm…I’ve definitely heard of it! I don’t think I’ve tried it, but may have?! I will definitely order it the next time I see it on a menu!

    I’m loving your answers Sarah – although I’m incredibly intrigued about your maiden name 🙂 The best answer has to be where you’d most like to be – I’ll join you although we’ve had no snow.

      I almost included it! I have emailed a couple other bloggers separately who have asked.
      Thanks for commenting – you should do it more often since you are my best friend – haha! 🙂
