I loved reading your comments about photoshopping and understanding that we each are unique and how that makes us beautiful. Please note, that ideally we would never feel the need to compare ourselves to other women, whether in magazines or real life. However, in reality we do, so I just hoped to share a new perspective to adopt when doing so. Strive towards not comparing...but when you find yourself doing so, take a moment to think objectively about those comparisons. For more reading on those topics, check out Jen's and Katie's posts as well.


If you haven't noticed by now, I love answering sporadic questions that can provide a little glimpse into who I am. And the randomer (totally a word), the better. I enjoy answering quesions almost as much as I enjoy reading all of yours. When I saw the 25 Things game that many have already posted, I knew I wanted to get in on the action. Thanks for starting this fun Julie!

  1. Where would you be able to spend hours and be happy? Anywhere I can be comfortable with a good book.
  2. What’s your favorite kind of doughnut? That heavenly Dutch Monkey blueberry donut I had awhile ago. Haven't had another since, but it's the best.

    Blueberry Cream Divine Donut

  3. Do you have any tattoos or piercings? Nada. Not even my ears.
  4. What is your favorite movie? Oh dear goodness. I would have to say The Labyrinth. I can't even begin to explain why it's my favorite besides it being a special bond with my sister. And Hoggle being our idol.

    Crazy David Bowie

  5. Who was the last person you spoke to on the phone? my friend Angie
  6. Are you still friends with the people you knew in middle school or high school? Two. My good friend Thomas who I only get to see 2x/year now that he lives in Virginia. And my friend Nikki who I am the matron of honor for in her upcoming wedding.
  7. What is the last thing you ate? Leftover sausage & lentil soup. Although I'm wishing it was a Dutch Monkey Donut now.
  8. What did you want to be when you grew up? a teacher or a journalist
  9. Name three things that are close to you right now: water bottle, camera, and duh a computer if I'm typing.
  10. What was your best subject in school? Spanish. Hence me becoming a Spanish teacher.
  11. What is your favorite restaurant? You really expect me to pick?! I guess I would have to say either Cheesecake Factory or Cheeky Taqueria.
  12. Any hidden talents? Would clearing a room after having lots of veggies count?
  13. What is your middle name? Jordan, but it used to be Danielle...I kept my maiden name for my middle and wish I didn't. I like Danielle better now. That's more than you all cared to know I am sure.
  14. What is your favorite website? seeing as all my computer time is spent blogging, I would have to say all your blogs!
  15. How old were you when you had your first kiss? 14...and don't EVEN get me started on that. The dude STOLE my first kiss. It was a sneak attack and I hated every second of it.
  16. Chocolate or vanilla? Chocolate, but of course!
  17. What is your favorite girl’s name? Makenzie!
  18. Favorite store? right now it is either TJ Maxx, Home Goods, or Old Navy for things that fit in my budget but are still nice
  19. Would you rather be a rock star or a famous athlete? Famous athlete.
  20. Favorite food? Pizza! and sweet potatoes. But definitely not together.
  21. What are you wearing right now? workout capris, sportsbra tank, socks, and tennis shoes - still from this morning when I didn't get to do my workout thanks to a fussy M. I cleaned a ton today instead so it all evens out.
  22. What is your favorite animal? horses. I miss riding!
  23. Did you graduate from college? Yep. From UGA. Summa cum laude. One flippin B kept me from doing it with a 4.0 as well. I will never forgive that English teacher. Figures I could knock out A's easily in Spanish but my one B was in English.
  24. What does your last text message say? I don't remember. I am not a big texter.
  25. Do you have any nicknames? Tina since my full name is Christina...and Peter has some choice ones that you probably don't want to know 😉

    Thanks for the mention! 🙂 I am totally going to add you girls to my post too! 🙂 It’s too funny because I woke up with that topic on my heart before I even checked your (or Jen’s blog!) It would be pretty awesome if the Lord had us work together, and honestly, I totally believe all things are possible with Him, so ya never know! 🙂

  2. homecookedem says:

    Loved learning more about you!! I totally meant to ask where you went to school on Sunday and now I know! Gooooooo Dawgs!! My parents both graduated from UGA, so I was raised a dawg. But I went to North Georgia. But yep, our house is divided too, haha!! 🙂

  3. Jenn (GH) says:

    I LOVE horse too! I started riding when I was a little girl and taught riding lessons when I was in high school. Unfortunately the cost of living is so high out here don’t know when I’ll be able to afford a horse again but when I’m sad I sometimes think of riding.

  4. Vee says:

    I enjoy getting to know you & other bloggers! I miss regular horse riding too.

  5. Hi, I am a new reader so wanted to say hi. I love your blog//I am a foodie and a Christian too and I really relate to all your posts! And I am jealous of your blueberry donut. I miss riding so much! Hours and hours per week from age 5 to 17 and now it has been only a few rides in the last several YEARS. This must change.

  6. Jennifer says:

    Thanks for the blog shout out 🙂 Seriously that donut picture has me searching for the nearest kirspy kreme or dunkin donuts.

  7. My favorite kind of donut has icing in the center.

  8. Kelly says:

    Loved it! I loved seeing all these things about you!!

  9. lisaou11 says:

    mmm donuts. yours look good!

  10. Holly says:

    I loved this! And I didn’t realize you were a teacher? I’m a former teacher – I miss it so much sometimes.

    I LOVE horses, too. I used to ride (only for a couple of years) when I was in middle school/high school. I tell myself all the time one day I’ll take lessons again. I really miss it!

    And what kind of kid steals a kiss like that??

  11. cardiopizza says:

    Loved the facts! Danielle is such a pretty name..but Jordan is a great name too! 🙂

  12. Tina, I just love that you posted this list of questions!! I absolutely loved getting a better idea of who you are!! I didn’t realize we were soooo similar. You are a gem, my friend. And a hilarious one at that!! I would have answered almost all of the questions similarly. But I must say- that dutch monkey is by far the best thing I’ve seen in perhaps my lifetime. OH MY LORD!!!!!!!

    Hope you have a fantastic day!!

    Oh my gosh..you are the only other person I know that loved the movie Labyrinth. I think I saw that movie for the first time when I was 7 years old and for some odd reason I totally fell in love with David Bowie. I just thought he was the coolest thing ever (I couldn’t believe he was the same person when I saw him outside of that role). I STILL love that movie!! 🙂

  15. Oh my gosh….Labyrinth! Okay, so maybe I’ve only seen part of it, but that movie seriously scared the crap out of me. hahah!!
