How well do they know me?

First off, checking in with Kels and her summer reading challenge - I said I would read 30 books in June, July & August. In June I read 13 books, and in July I read 12... So I only have 5 books to read in August then I shall be a winner winner chicken dinner. I've only read 2 books since the last Show Us Your Books Link up, for some reason I have just not been in a reading mood.


The Blonder Side of Life

I love these posts that I have been seeing around bloglandia, but I didn't think I had enough people to ask. Then I said who curr, no-one curr so I did it anyway... and I asked a couple of blogging friends to help a sister out.

I asked them all to name 5 things I loved or was obsessed with.. here's what they said:

KC (husband just in case you don't know..)

- Jane Austen
- Subtitles
- Apple Juice
- Me (as in him, not myself).
- Our cats


^ how many times did you watch that gif? watch it again.

Mummy (the person who birthed me)

- Pride & Prejudice
- Running / Exercise
- Beauty & the Beast
- Cats
- Food


Megan (bestie)

- Books
- Cats
- Planning stuff
- Traveling
- Exercise


Jenni (bestie)

- Books
- Pride & Prejudice
- Cats
- Stripes
- Milkshakes

She also said candy (or lollies) and I mean, does she know me or what?


Alyssa 

- Pride & Prejudice
- Cats (yours, specifically, but all in general)
- Traveling / Vacations
- Planning
- Books in general


She also said: I should probably say KC too but I think you love him a healthy, normal, respectable, adult way. Being obsessed with a guy feels so 13-year-old ya know? All that just to say I know you love him but that goes without saying and doesn't belong on this list (other runners up: Australia, running, yoga).

Nadine

- Cats
- Books
- Traveling
- Yoga
- Jane Austen


She also said: If Jane Austen & books are the same, then shopping (which made me laugh)

Tracy

- Cats
- Reading
- Pride & Prejudice
- Australia
- Traveling


Tracy also said the same thing about KC, which makes me laugh because KC clearly thinks I am obsessed with him (just kidding!).

So basically you guys, my friends think I am a crazy cat lady with a weird Jane Austen obsession who loves to exercise, eat, travel and read. And you know what? That's flipping awesome and 100% true. Perhaps I should find something new to talk about?


Happy Wednesday! Do you love any of the things I love?

  10. This was a fun post :) I think I could name all those things about you as well just from reading your blog the past few weeks! I'm also big into travelling, eating and exercising. Those are three good things to be obsessed with!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Haha! Your lists were all pretty much the same and accurate. It's a real bonus when food and exercise BOTH make the list, right? Both of those would be on mine, too :)

    ReplyDelete
  12. You should open a book store with it's own cat, maybe you could even hire KC. You know so all your obsessions are in the same place. :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Haha! I love that you have your things and everyone knows it! :) Pride and Prejudice is the bomb dot com! :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Lol..I love that you are crazy cat Jane Austen loving lady. I have read pride and prejudice a few times and love it.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I would have said:

    - Pride & Prejudice
    - Cats
    - Traveling
    - Yoga/Running
    - Books

    KC is a given, which is why he wasn't included in the list. Hahaha.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I would have said P&P, travel, books, cats, Derby. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  17. This is so fun! It seems so accurate :) I would have said either P&P or books...it would have been a toss up on going specific or general.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I loved doing this it was so fun to see how well people knew me. I totally would have guessed P&P and Travel.

    ReplyDelete
  19. This is such a cute post - your friends clearly know you very well!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Hahahaha it looks like you are pretty predictable when it comes to likes :) But that is what we love about you! We know what we are going to get. All great obsessions, obviously! Though...dogs are way better than cats. You would know that if you met Gracie and Mac :D

    ReplyDelete
  21. ha, this is a cute idea! I like it. And look at you, little Jane Austen lover! That cat gif is darling, I really want a cat!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I would have said P&P, travel, and Disney. I had so much fun with this when I did it!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Bahaha every single dang person said cats and books. YES they know you! I would say the same, plus traveling, experimenting with makeup/clothes and Aussie :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. I so need to do this.
    Yipee for mom giving Beauty & the Beast a shout out. I know that will be the first thing out of everyone's mouth for me :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Such a fun post and great job on your reading goal!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Haha! So spot on with their picks. I have the same obsession with books.

    ReplyDelete
  27. LOL! So funny to see what your friends say about you, but I do think they pretty much nailed it from what we know of you here!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Books and travel would probably be on my lists too.

    This is such a fun post! I may have to do it myself. :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love this idea! I feel like I know you pretty well also and we are only blog/instagram friends! I love your blog, especially the pride and prejudice posts!

    ReplyDelete
  30. My secret to blowing through books recently ? Amazon Kindle Unlimited - with audio ! My drive to and from work is infinitely better now that I've listened to The Paper Magician series (in case you need any ideas for books to read in August !)

    Also, I love the Homer Simpson gif...can that type of exercise get us in half marathon shape ?!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Haha love this post! Sounds like they know you pretty well! :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Haha, I love this! So funny they all said similar things. I think I would have said about the same things about you too!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hahaha I love how everyone's answers were the same. That's awesome. I'm curious what people would say about me.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hahaha I love that you included my KC commentary and that you totally know what I meant by it too :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. haha sounds like a fun little game to play. and I really like bloglandia waaaay better than blogosphere! I'm gonna use that one ;)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love books, cats, traveling, and gifs! (no one said gifs...but let's admit it...we love our gifs) I'm glad you did this, and I love the consistancy (did I spell that correctly?) of the answers.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Stripes! Good one, Jenni. I think we all summed you up pretty well :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. haha love that they are all so consistent - and pretty on point!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I'm glad you did this! I love how they all basically said the exact same 5 things. Your friends clearly know you well.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I think it's okay to be a little obsessed with one's husband...it's quite special if you can get that giddy "crush" feeling all over again! :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Lol, I love this idea!! I'm a total Beauty & the Beast fangirl & books, yes to all the books!

    ReplyDelete
  42. hmmm.. seems you need to get signed up for #AusteninAugust ! only 2 days left ;)

    ReplyDelete

  45. I've considered doing this, but I've been too lazy to ask anyone. I think it would be interesting to see how well other people know me, though.

    I'm not surprised by any of the answers given here. It's awesome that everyone knows you so well (and that their responses were so consistent)!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Haha I love these posts. From reading your blog, my list for you would have looked very similar! I love how KC is the only one who put himself haha Now I'm curious what people would say about me. Probably, KODA, KODA, KODA, wine!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Oh yes! I love this little game! I have one planned coming up soon. I totally would have said cats and Jane Austin/books for you as well.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Hehe that LBD gif. :) I have read SO much! I think a lot of it is the book club! Hooray. Also, the planes. Lots and lots of planes. :) XO -Alexandra

  49. I love reading these and keep meaning to ask people what they'd say about me. I would have definitely sad Jane Austen or Pride & Prejudice first too!
