Being Me Blog Tag

I was tagged by Yvonne of Diaries of Another Relaxed Chic to do this Being Me Tag (thanks again!). I'm really quite indecisive and am known for being so bad at answering simple questions like these. A number of these answers could change with my mood, but I hope you enjoy getting to know a little more about me nonetheless :) 

1. Are you named after someone?
Yes, my mom had a childhood friend named Melanie and always wanted to name her daughter that. I also have my mom's middle name. 
2. When was the last time you cried?
Sunday, at church.  
3. Do you have any children?
Nope, not yet. I definitely want my own one day, but I have plenty of nieces, nephews/little cousins to love on & keep me busy for now. 
4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?
Yes, of course! I think I'm a pretty awesome friend, but who doesn't think that about themselves? Lol
5. Do you have a guilty pleasure?
Sweets and... retail therapy!
6. Do you like handwriting?
I'm not sure what exactly this question is asking, honestly. Do I like the look of handwriting? Only when its pretty. I like my own handwriting. Do I like to write by hand? Yes, sometimes I like writing things down instead of typing them. I love a good journal, too. 
7. What’s your favorite cereal?
This is so hard! I love cereal and I'm terrible at favorites. I eat it daily, without fail. Right now, I'm loving cinnamon cereals: Cinnamon Toast Crunch & Cinnamon Life. That changes regularly though. I don't think I could pick an absolute favorite. 
8. What’s the first thing you notice about people?
Their hair and their shoes. It's immediate. I've always had eyes for both. 
9. What’s the color of your eyes?
10. Scary movies or happy endings?
Happy endings! I'm a sap for romance and happily ever afters. 
11. Favorite TV Show?
Of all time? The Cosby Show
Currently? Scandal. It's the only TV show I can't wait to watch in real time. Everything else piles up on the DVR. Maybe it should've been in the guilty pleasure section?
12. Summer or Winter?
Summer! I really prefer milder seasons like Fall, but those aren't guaranteed in the midwest so summer it is.

13. Hugs or Kisses?
Both. I'm quite affectionate. 
14. Do you have any special talent?
I have an awesome, photographic memory!
15. Where you born?
16. What are your hobbies?
Other than my hair? Lol! I love scrapbooking, DIY projects, taking pictures, reading... 
17. Do you have any pets?
Nope. I really want a dog, but #1 - I'm allergic so it would have to be a special breed and #2 - I always end up living places they're not allowed. So I guess I don't want one that bad then huh?
18. Favorite movie?
Really... I do not have favorites! Today, I'll pick Love & Basketball.
19. What color is your car?
Umm... it's a grayish blue. It looks different depending on the light.
20. What do you want to be when you grow up?
I love working in healthcare. There will be a M.D. after my name one day!


  1. So you have a sweet tooth also lol it was nice learning a little more about you.

    1. Lol yes! It's such a problem. I think I'm addicted to sweets. Thanks Candice!

  2. Thanks for accepting the tag! Was great reading it and learning a bit about yourself! I used to have a photographic memory too, when I was in school, I wonder if I still do, it's always a great skill to have!
    Amen! I see M.D after your name too!!

    1. Aww! Thank you Yvonne! That's pretty cool you had a photographic memory, too. I agree - it's a wonderful skill!

  3. I learned so much about you. Great post. I think the question about handwriting is asking if you prefer to type or handwrite your notes. I love to write by hand because the words flows more freely. Kisses.

    1. Thanks Nerline! That makes sense about the question. For me it depends on how fast paced I need to take the notes. I type a lot faster than I write.

  4. I was named after my mother's best friends growing up Karen and Crystal. She put the two together and came up with Krystal. Too bad all of the other 80's moms where doing the same thing! I know 1000+ Krystals that spell their name exactly like mine! lol
