Nomination – Getting to Know Me

I was nominated by Crystal at Living Through Our Loss for the Getting to Know Me Award. Crystal has a beautiful site where she shares her story of losing Averie and raising her rainbow baby, Isabella.

It’s the first time anybody has nominated me for anything like this so here goes!

Who are you named after?

I was named after my grandmother (my mom’s mom) and my full name is Marcie even though she was Marcella.

Do you like your handwriting?

No, it’s pretty awful.  I wish it was pretty.  My mom had the best handwriting but I did not inherit that gift.

What is your favorite lunch meat?


Longest relationship?

I’ve been married to Jeff for almost 16 years!  We were together for 4 years before that.

Do you still have your tonsils?


Would you bungee jump?

I think so.  Maybe.

Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?


Favorite ice cream?

Mint chip.

What is the first thing you notice about people?

Sometimes I’m pretty oblivious to my surroundings and I can’t think of any particular thing that always stands out for me.   I’ve had many conversations with my husband that go like this:

Me: We saw this cute dog today.

Him: What kind of dog?

Me: Um, a brown one? I can’t really remember.

Him: Big dog, little dog?

Me: Sort of big, maybe?

Him: *Eye Rolling.

Football or baseball?

Football.  Go Vikes!  But really, I only really like to watch live.  Or if it’s a really big game.  I get too distracted.  I did take the time once to learn how the game is played though.

What color pants are you wearing?

Blue jeans.  I get to wear jeans to work everyday.  I’m so lucky.

Last thing you ate?

Strawberry shortcake for dessert last night.

If you were a crayon, what color would you be?

Probably pink.  I wear a lot of pink.

Favorite smell?


Who was the last person you spoke to on the phone?

My oldest daughter, Ali.

Hair color?

Brown with a natural blond birthmark or two plus a lot of gray.

Eye color?


Favorite foods to eat?

My grandmother’s chicken and dumplings.

Scary movies or happy endings?

Happy endings.

Last movie you watched?

Moana.  It was really good.  The soundtrack is good, too.

Favorite holiday?

Probably Christmas.

Beer or wine?

Neither, I’m not much of a drinker but when I do drink I prefer vodka and juice or flavored vodka and lemonade and shots like grape apes and such.  Fruity stuff.

Night owl or early bird?

I hate getting up in the morning but once I’m up I’m at my most productive.  I’ve been getting up early most days to work on the blog.  It still amazes me when I don’t push the snooze button at 5:00 am.

Favorite day of the week?

Saturday.  I usually get to sleep in.  And often get to nap.

Favorite quote?

“Stop spending money like you’re in congress.”  Dave Ramsey


I would like to nominate Gabe at (Almost) Unsalvageable for the Getting to Know Me Award.  He may have already done this before, but he’s a great commenter on my site and his blog is really interesting.  Great stories and great art.  Plus, he’s part of the #bloggesstribe.  (We love that about each other!)
