Factual Friday

Happy Friday!!!  I read a neat little survey that Christina posted on her blog today and thought it would be perfect for a foodless Friday post.  Enjoy!
1. Name 3 things you are looking forward to: *The weekend
*My copy of Peas & Thank You arriving in the mail
*Planning a BBQ with friends
2. If you could have a dream come true, what would it be? *Quit my job, but still get the pay cheque!  LOL
3. You have $200.  You have to spend it on yourself, you can’t donate it, and it can’t be something you actually need.  What will it be? *Some new Lululemon digs….
4. What helps to pull you out of a bad mood? *Spending time with friends

6. If you are currently in a relationship, how did you meet your significant other? *Through a mutual friend
7. What kind of books do you read? *I’ll read anything with text on it, but I’m not super fond of heavy romance type novels.  Give me a good murder mystery, with a touch of scandal!
8. How do you see yourself in 10 years?
*In 10yrs my kids will be 22 & 19 so I’ll likely be an empty nester.  Hopefully I’ll be traveling much more (and farther) than I do now, but I’ll probably be too busy worrying about those kids!  ;)

13. If you could pick a new name for yourself, what would it be? *There was a time where I would’ve had a list of names I preferred over my own, or changed the spelling to Khrysta, (I know, right?) but I’ve come to like my name!
14. If you had to choose between six months of sun or six months of rain, what would you choose? *SUN!  That was a no-brainer……
15. If you could only eat one thing for the next 6 months, what would it be? *Pizza, lots of ways.
16. What is the thing you enjoy about blogging the most? *Reading the comments!
17. Do you prefer salty or sweet foods? *Sweet, but I’m starting to like salty more than I use to……

  1. May I use this survey for my blog? :D

  2. What a fun survey!!!

    Love your answer for #3. Mine is exactly the same! :)

    Happy Weekend!

  3. Yes, I think pizza would never be a bore... I remember as a kid always making sure to save leftover delivery pizza from dinner for the next day..that way i could have it for breakfast!!

    haha our bedtime routine is exactly the same! sometimes im too exhausted to get to the reading part tho ;)

    xoxo <3

  4. Fun survey! I might do this for next week sometime. :) And you definitely have/had no reason to ever want to change your name. It's beautiful!

  5. Such a fun survey! I think Josh would choose the same thing to change about me (Make her less of a worrier). And who would want months of rain??

  6. I'm shocked that you chose new lulu goodies, Krista!! ;) lol!

  7. Such a fun survey, Krista! Ick, I hate spiders too!

  8. I haven't stopped by your blog for TOO long, sorry about that! But, I stumbled upon a good one, I love reading posts like this. So yeah, who would give up junk food to see outer space?! HECK NO! And of course I agree with you it would be WONDERFUL to quit my job and still get paid. And of course in ten years I'd love to travel more too, but I see myself JUST GETTING kids, as you're sending yours away. Yikes. Scary. I'll need some tips!


I'd love to hear from you!! Please leave a comment!
