Blogger Backgrounds

Wednesday, April 14, 2010


Yet another one stolen from my sister 'cause it's fun:

1. What does your blog name mean?
MT - because I'm tried and true Montana girl. Grace is the meaning of my real name. Once upon a time, I worked at a men's store in the mall. Our entire staff was female, and we got hit on all the time. For our own protection, we all had fake names. From that point on, Grace has always been my alter-ego.

2. Elaborate on your default photo?
I adore the hat, and I will eventually buy it. And the model in the picture is beautiful and spunky - and I feel like she fits me.

3. Make up a question.
Why can't I find Porky's 2 on dvd?

4. What's your current relationship status?
Married to the cutest surfer on the planet. And on Saturday, we will have been married exactly 18 months!

5. What EXACTLY are you wearing right now?
White underwear, black yoga pants, black t-shirt, glasses, my wedding ring, Hawaii sandals, and ankle weights (because I haven't taken them off since my workout).

6. What is your current problem?
workout headache

7. What do you love most?
My family, friends and pets

8. What makes you most happy?
cute shoes and when Surfer Pirate willingly watches a whole movie with me

9. Are you musically inclined?
Used to play the piano and violin, but hated practicing (and my music teachers). I sing really well, and eventually want to re-learn how to play the violin.

10. If you could go back in time, and change something, what would you change?
I used to say "nothing" to this question because I feel like even my bad choices have taught me something and shaped who I have become. But I realized one day that I do have one. I wish I had made friends with our neighbor boy who had Downs Syndrome. He was such a sweet kid, but I was afraid of him. I didn't realize how great he was until high school.

11. If you MUST be an animal for ONE day, what would you be?
Easy one - a spoiled house cat (in a home without children). Food and water always available, someone to pet me whenever I allow them to, sleep and eat whenever I feel like it.

12. Ever have a near death experience?

13. Name an obvious quality you have.
I have long hair.

14. What's the name of the song that's stuck in your head right now?
Amazingly, nothing! I do have a rhythm, but it's not tied to any song.

15. Who did you cut and paste this from?

16. Name someone with the same birthday as you.
The ultra-yummy Tony Gonzalez of the Atlanta Falcons (see picture above). We even share the same birth year!

17. Have you ever vandalized someone's private property?
Not unless toilet papering counts

18. Have you ever been in a fight?
Came close one time in junior high, but no.

19. Have you ever sung in front of a large audience?
Karaoke, yes.

20. What is the first thing you notice about the opposite sex?

21. What do you usually order from Starbucks?
I hate coffee. Usually, I'll get an Italian Soda, but I also will sometimes get a Chai Latte.

22. Has anyone ever said you looked like a celebrity?
My best friend once told me that I look like Scarlett Johansson. That was a very nice compliment, but I don't see it.

23. Do you still watch kiddy movies or TV shows?
Of course. I'm a mom. (And a Disney movie junkie.)

24. Did you have braces?
Nope just a retainer.

25. Are you comfortable with your height?
Pretty much.

26. What is the most romantic thing someone has ever done for you?
Surfer Pirate kissed my belly all the time when I was pregnant.

27. Do you speak any other languages?
I have a semi-decent understanding of Spanish, but I don't speak it anywhere near as well as I would like. One day I plan on buying the Rosetta Stone Spanish program - if only it weren't so darn expensive.
