11 Questions from Meredith

1. Favorite Holiday?
Christmas.  I love being with family, and of course all of the yummy food and Christmas cookies!
2. Least favorite chore?
Doing the dishes.  I don't know what I would do without my dishwasher.
3. Favorite book or series?
I love James Patterson books.  I loved his Women's Murder Club series.  I own them all!
4. Online shopping or head to the store?
Depends.  I like the convenience of online shopping, but I usually like to see something in person before I buy it, so I usually head to the store.
5. Dream car?
A black GMC Acadia.  If you would have asked me this what I was about 8, I would have said a purple sparkly convertible with a lightning bolt on the side.  Boy how we change our minds as we get older...
6.What's in a name, reason behind your blog name.
I started this blog while I was engaged and house hunting.  Things were just so crazy in my life at that point, so I decided on "This Crazy Thing Called Life."  I'm still engaged, but we finally bought our house, so at least one part of my life has settled down a little :)
7. What's your go-to snack?
I usually bring a string cheese and some mixed nuts to work, so I snack on those during the day at work.  At home, I don't really snack that much.
8. If you could pick one celebrity to be your BFF, who would it be?
I'm a huge Justin Timberlake lover fan, and since he's married, and I'm getting married, maybe we could just be BFF's since our romantic relationship hasn't happend yet.
9. Most loved piece of clothing/shoes/accessories.
I don't know if I could pick one item.  I love coats/jackets.  And bathing suits.  It's hard to pick just one thing...I'm a girl for crying out loud!
10. Favorite / Most visited store?
I love Kohls.  It's the only store that I have a credit card for.  I also love Target. And Marshalls/TJ Maxx.
11.What are you looking forward to this year?
Getting married!  June 29 will be here before I know it.  And the honeymoon...can't wait for Atlantic City!
