"Getting to Know All About You"

Okay, so I decided to start my own questionaire since I've never been tagged for one (though I'm not sure why... I'm pretty cool....right?.... tell me I'm cool!.... I need to hear you say that I'm cool!!!) I'm not a big fan of the hokey ones with the silly questions, so I decided to make mine nice and juicy... and personal. For the people that I tag you can certainly plead the fifth... but then your coolness level will really suffer (take it from someone who's WAY cool!)

The Rules:
1. Post the rules
2. Answer the questions
3. Tag 5 people

1. What is your full name? Audrey Renea Sabin

2. What do you like to do in your spare time? Blog, read good books (esp. classics), listen to music, hang out with friends and hang out with my family

3. Name two of your biggest vices: 1) Not being patient enough with my children and spouse (but esp. my children); 2) I just can't break the habit.... I'm an avid nail-biter!

4. Name two of your biggest virtues: 1) I know how to LOVE.... especially kids that I teach and my own kids (and you, honey!); 2) I have an unwavering testimony of the Atonement of Jesus Christ

5. What is your biggest regret, up to this point? Not dropping out of college to take care of my grandmother before she died when my grandfather called me personally to ask if I would ( I was very close to her, but very caught up in the whole college scene...)

6. List 5 of your deepest, darkest desires (keeping it G-rated, of course): 1) I want to write children's stories and poetry and have it published (click here to read one of my poems); 2) I would love to open up an indoor rowing gym where people could come and compete in erg (ergometer/rowing machine) races, as well as just work out; 3) I know this is lame, but I would love to have my very first pedicure, facial and manicure (I didn't really get in touch with my feminine side until after Steven was born, and then I didn't have the money for stuff like that anymore!); 4) I've always wanted to sing a Sarah McLachlan song up on a stage for a ward talent show (in fact, when singing to Sarah I often invision myself in such a setting... I know I'm a freak); 5) To suddenly become a size 8 (or any single digit size, really...)

7. What do you consider a perfect day? A day spent in harmony with my family, doing anything really, then having some snuggle time with my hubby followed by a movie (Pride and Prejudice) with lots and lots of REALLY buttery popcorn and a box of Whoppers... all before 10:00 so that I can still have some "me" time.

8. Name 3 songs that you know EVERY word to: 1) Sarah McLachlan "Fumbling Towards Ecstasy"; 2) Depeche Mode "Somebody"; 3) Queen "Bohemian Rhapsody" (after all, I did have to sing the whole thing all by myself for a youth conference kareoke show!)

9. What fictional character do you secretly envy and wish you could become? Jane Bennet from Pride and Prejudice because she is so good and a little niave, but mostly because she is able to see the good in everyone, even when it seems obvious to others that they are undeserving of her goodwill.

10. What's the first thought that pops into your head when you see yourself in the mirror? "Man, I look good!" Just kidding, it's usually "Man, I need to start working out again."

'K, I hope you enjoyed that; now it's your turn. I tag: Bethanne, Kristi, Julie Gropp, Emily and Kelly. (Have fun with it, girls... I look forward to seeing the juicy side of you!)

I think I remember that Bohemian Rhapsody you sang at youth conference:)

Of course you're cool...super cool! And I'll do the tag, but man...those are some hard questions! It might take me a few days to get around to it. I'm supposed to be pulling stuff together for our meeting tomorrow as it is...back to work!

Auntie Heather said...

Don't listen to buttwipe anonymous, you are cool and sweet. Besides, they misspelled 'your' in this context. 'You're' sound a little familiar? There, I said it. I'm harsh, right?!

Bethanne said...

Audrey, you know I can't bow down when you're fishing for compliments...but, well, since you ARE one of my best friends I have to give a shout-out. OF COURSE you're cool. :)

However, I'm not sure I can participate in the tag. But only because no one reads my blog when I do that...hmmmmm...that should tell me something...Maybe I'll email you the answers! hahahahaha

BTW, my parents bought us the Wii. And it is actually pretty fun. You guys should come play! :)

Audrey said...

John's sister has a Wii and we loved it... until she moved back to Utah! We'll come play with you guys anytime.

Thanks for thinking I'm cool. I wasn't REALLY fishing for compliments you know... just trying to be COOL about how much of a nerd I am... you know? :-)

Audrey!! A tag! Are you kidding?!?! I enjoyed reading your tag, boy you made it hard. Your friend Bethanne sounded so sad that no one ever read her blog, I now know why- it's private!!
