I Mustache You Some Questions



I’ve seen this on two sites this week and it looked fun. No one tagged me in it, but since I still cannot seem to put blogging anywhere near the top of my to-do list, here’s a pre-made post just waiting to be filled out!

Four names that people call me, other than my real name:

  • Poodie – My childhood nickname that my husband picked up as well. Where does it come from? When I was a baby, my dad said I looked like a Poodie. What’s a Poodie? A baby me. My dad’s a funny guy.
  • Marie – My Mema calls me this. It’s my middle name.
  • Mom – Mama and Mommy have been replaced by mom, even by my five-year-old. Sigh. I hear this word a lot, sometimes too much!
  • Dutch – My daddy calls me Dutch. I don’t really know why. Sometimes he adds Marie to it and calls me Dutch Marie.

Four jobs I have had:

  • Sonic carhop – two summers during college
  • Community Assistant – I spent three years at the front desk of the dorms. Loved that job!
  • Chem Lab Teaching Assistant – It still blows my mind that I was allowed to do this job as an undergrad. It was fun teaching my peers.
  • Librarian – My current occupation and my permanent career. I’ve worked in three libraries so far. Kids and books…my two favorite things!

Four movies I’ve watched more than once:

  • Avatar – This is one of my all time favorites.
  • all Pixar and Disney movies – I have kids…what can I say!
  • The Family Stone – My favorite Christmas movie. Noel and I watch it together multiple times every December.
  • The Cutting Edge – I used to be obsessed with figure skating, and this movie got watched A LOT in high school.
Four books I’d recommend: (Uh…I’m a librarian…how do you expect me to limit it to just four?!)
  • The Selection, The Elite, The One – AWESOME series. If you like dystopian YA stuff, you must read these!
  • The Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices series – My most favorite YA series to date.
  • Watership Down – My favorite book growing up. I had to buy another copy because my first one fell apart.
  • Train Like a Mother – My favorite running book.

Four places I have lived:

  • Wichita, KS
  • Manhattan, KS
  • Rose Hill, KS
  • Douglass, KS

Four places I have been:

  • New York City – with a 3-month-old!
  • Hawaii
  • Table Rock Lake
  • Disney World

Four places I’d rather be right now:

  • Running
  • Somewhere warm where I can wear a tank, shorts, and a flip flops
  • Manhattan, KS at a K-State football game
  • One of my grandparents’ house – I love to visit both sets.

Four things I don’t eat:

  • milk – I’m very lactose intolerant.
  • fish – I just don’t like it. And I’ve tried!
  • peppers – I don’t really like spicy food.
  • ham – I’m allergic…we think. I’ve gotten sick the last few times I’ve eaten it. And now the thought just leaves a bad taste in my mouth!

Four of my favorite foods:

  • Coffee – is that a food?
  • Peanut Butter
  • bread, bagels, pasta – I LOVE CARBS!
  • Chipotle burrito with rice, black beans, chicken, and LOTS of tomato salsa

Four TV shows that I watch:

  • Criminal Minds
  • Parenthood
  • Cutthroat Kitchen – Noel and I LOVE this show!
  • Big Band Theory

Four things I’m always saying:

  • I need coffee.
  • Don’t do that!
  • I love you!
  • Answering my husband’s daily question of “What’s the workout for today?” I’m our family’s run coach.
