Heather, from Theta Mom, pretty much has the best list posts about getting to know people. The last getting to know me post I did was from her too, so I thought I would do this one too. 😉
1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?Â
Yes, my mom said she always loved the name Katherine & wanted her daughter to be strong like Katherine Hepburn. So voila! She got a super, strong Kate all of her own. And my middle name has been handed down for 5 generations now (it’s my daughter’s name too.)
2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
Oh geez…I really have no idea.
3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING?
Yes, I do.
4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT?
IF, and I mean IF, I have to eat lunch meat it’s going to be chicken.
5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS?
Yes, I have 2. A boy & a girl, plans to have more. 😉
6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON, WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU?
7. DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT?
Refer to question #6. 🙂 I actually do not like to use sarcasm, that whole root word of itÂ meaning “to tear flesh, bite the lips in rage, sneer “Â thing is not how I want to treat or talk to people.
8. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS?
9. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP?
No, no way, not at all.
10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL?
11. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF?
12. DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG?
Yes, personality more than physically. But, like Theta Mom said, “Considering I birthed two children, I would say a resounding YES. And every mother just nodded in agreement with me.” I’ll go with her answer!
13. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM?
Uh oh, don’t throw rocks at me, I’m not really an ice cream fan. When I absolutely have a craving for it (which is rare) I like vanilla with M&M’s.
14. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE?
Their eyebrows. Ha!
15. RED OR PINK?
Pink. Red. No Pink. No Red. No…. both. 😉

There were these bushes outside of a cousin’s house in North Carolina who we would go visit every summer. She is 98 or 99 now, so she no longer lives there. But, whenever I smell something that reminds me of her front porch I’m instantly taken back there.

Aren’t these lists fun (and sooo easy?!!!)
Theta Mom says
I love Lucky Charms, too!! And it’s amazing how certain smells bring up such strong memories like from your cousin’s house, I totally get that. And cheers to our grandmother’s, who I believe watch over us every day. I miss mine dearly, too xoxo
Kate P. says
YES! Lucky Charms are magically delicious! 😉
Grandmothers are simply the best. I miss mine every day, she was so wonderful. I still pick up my phone to call her & then remember all over again she’s not here. I’m blessed to have had her!
I’m going to have to do this, even though I already posted today.
I am THRILLED to know someone else love Lucky Charms! They’re Cheerios, but better, because they have marshmallows. I ate a bowl every night when I was pregnant. It kept me from having morning sickness.
