My Obsessions

My girl Kristin did an awesome post last week that I knew I was going to copy as soon as I read it. She polled her closest family and friends and asked them what they would say she was obsessed with. Obsessed is a word we all probably use entirely too much, so I thought it would be fun to see what my people said about me. Family/friends weren't allowed to be answers because of course they come first in my life no matter what :) For the most part? Not too many surprise answers, but here are the results after polling 9 people.

Bengals/Football got 8/9. The one person who didn't list this? Jared! Haha- his excuse was that since it was my job maybe he shouldn't list it. Disclaimer- it needs listed ;) I mean, have you read the title of my blog?

Mexican food scored 7/9 My college friend Erin specifically listed quality mexican food, and I like that answer best. My dad also said "mexican vacations" which halfway counts- he knows I go for the food, not just the beaches.

Disney and Blogging both got 6/9. I was surprised that many people said blogging but I guess I kinda' do it all day/every day. I just didn't expect everyone to know how deep my love is for it!


New cities/vacations/traveling got just 4/9 but I'll take it. I love seeing new areas and getting time away from the office, especially with Jared! Travel is worth every penny and if I were rich I'd do it even more often.

Honorable Mentions:
Organization/Planners/Lists- 3/9
Dave Ramsey 2/9
Puppies 2/9

Jared listed Jodi Picoult and pretzels which are solid choices that no one else said. I guess that just goes to show you how I spend a good chunk of my spare time at home. Book in hand (preferably a Jodi) and pretzels by my side. I'm a simple girl, really. I don't need much to keep me content but Mickey-shaped pretzels do get bonus points.

The color orange and orange polka dots were both mentioned. I do love me some orange but I had no idea anyone thought I was OBSESSED with it. Although, our wedding theme was sorta' centered around both those things.

And last but not least I got ONE vote for, and I quote, "those disgusting circus peanuts" lol! So maybe I did write an entire post about them... Yeah, I'm pretty obsessed.

  2. Oh what a fun idea! I would have definitely said Bengals/football followed by being debt free.

    Now next time you're in Disney, stay at a local Hampton Inn and you'll get Mickey shaped waffles!

  4. Haha I love this! I agree completely on the football and Mexican food. I'm pretty sure I'd get the same scores on those! You are too cute in your Minnie Mouse inspired outfit!

  6. "Those disgusting circus peanuts" made me LOL! Did Jared say that?! So funny. It was fun coming up with a few things about you. None of those answers surprised me! You have lots of things you love, and that's awesome!!!! ;)

  7. haha I've had the circus peanuts because my mom got sick off them as a kid and wouldn't let them in the house!
    Mexican food was on Mary's list too (Little Bit of Class, Little Bit of Sass) and now that's ALL I want to eat! I'm so hungry right now.
    I definitely would have said the Bengals for you and either saving money/dave ramsey/debt pay off, something along those lines :)

  8. I love this post format! Might have to tuck it away to do one myself. That Mickey Mouse pretzel looks incredible, and I'm a huge Jodi fan too! I would have said football/Bengals, Dave Ramsey/crushing debt, and traveling for you :)

  10. Love this post idea! I might have to replicate it as well :) Very fun! And I L-O-V-E love those circus peanuts, too. So funny that Jared left out football. Can't believe we are just a few weeks away from training camp craziness!!

  11. Haha I love this. I've been trying to decide who I want to ask. I think I've got it down I just got to get it out there. I probably would've picked football & paying off debt for you. I could really go for some tex-mex right now... mostly for the chips & queso ha.

  23. I'm absolutely obsessed (ha - see what I did there?) with this post idea. I might just steal it, too! I would have definitely said football, Mexican food, and blogging for you. Also, heck yeah to the pretzels, especially soft pretzels. Too good...and how cute is that picture with you and the Mickey one?!

    ReplyDelete
  24. What a fun post! I may steal this too! :) Looks like we're obsessed with a lot of the same things...Mexican food, Disney, and football (although different teams!) I love that you had your family and friends tell you your obsessions. I wonder what my family would say?! -Jess
