What I've Seen Lately...

I've been watching a lot of movies lately. Even since I started prepping this post I've seen a few more. This past weekend my mom and I did a double feature at the local movie theater and saw two movies in one night (we snuck into the second one..shhh). I have the same way of rating movies as I do books - stars 1 thru 5.

Here's what I've seen lately...

21 Questions: The Girl Behind the Blog

Since my About Me page has been blank for some time, I thought I would tell you a bit about me. It was great timing, because my friend Cassie, over at Always a Blogsmaid, tagged me in a 21 questions post.

Are You Named After Anyone?
Yes, I certainly am :)  I am named after Erica Kane from the soap opera All My Children. She is the great soap character played by Susan Lucci.

When Was The Last Time You Cried
It was during the last new episode of Vampire Diaries. I was surprised because my tears were for Bonnie and I don't even like her!

Do You Have Kids?
I have two furry little ones at home, Cosima and Helena. They are the lights in my life.

If You Were Another Person, Would You Be A Friend Of Yourself?
I hope so! I think I'm pretty cool. I love to go to the movies and watch my favorite tv shows. Let's go get mani's and pedi's!

Do You Use Sarcasm A Lot?
Ummm...Only when I'm annoyed.

Will You Ever Bungee Jump?
I sort of already have. It was a 'kid-friendly' type of bungee-jumping. When I was 11 or 12 we went to Pigeon Forge, TN. Check out the video below. That's what I did and it was a lot of fun!


What's Your Favorite Cereal?
Definitely, Golden Grahams! I don't eat cereal anymore, at least I haven't since I did the Whole30 back in July.  When I was at Sams the other day they had a lady giving out samples of Golden Grahams and I forgot how yummy there were!

What's The First Thing You Notice About People?
I would say that I notice their hair or their teeth.

What Is Your Eye Color? 
Green

Scary Movie or Happy Endings?
It really depends on the mood I'm in. I love scary movies and I love a good happy ending.

Favorite Smells?
Rain...a new book...and old book...a fireplace burning in the fall...fresh baked chocolate chip cookies...I could really go on and on!

Summer or Winter?
Oh gosh...I love both! Right now, I'm totally ready for summer. Winter can stay home.

Computer or Television?
Television...I'm addicted!There are sooo many shows that I watch. My computer is great and all, but when I get home from work I just want to lounge on the couch and watch my television.

What's The Farthest You've Ever Been From Home?
When I lived in California for five years 2006-2011.

Do You Have Any Special Talents?
I can sing, can pick up choreography, am a trained actress, and an award winning karaoke singer!

Where Were You Born?
Carmichael, California

What Are Your Hobbies?
Scrapbooking, reading, writing, tv/movies, working out (when I get my butt off the couch), hanging with my kitties.

Do You Have Any Pets?
Helena and Cosima. They were born in September and are getting sooo big! They are adorable and I'm totally crazy about them.


Do You Have Any Siblings?
My younger brother, Jacob. He looks older because he's about a foot taller than me.

What Do You Want To Be When You Grow Up?
I used to want to be a movie star.  Now, I just want to be happy and healthy.

Thanks Cassie, for tagging me :) Now I'm going to tag Mia, Vashelle, and Lexie. Have fun ladies!
