So, one of my favorite things is answering random questions.  I usually try to not do it too much, but Rachael over at LUMUHAND nominated me for an award and asked me questions…so therefore I answer.  You’re supposed to nominate other bloggers to keep it going, but I don’t have the head for that this morning, to be honest with you.  Instead, I’m going to answer all the questions Rachael gave me…and if you’re so inclined, you should answer them in the comments as well!  I’d love to read your answers!


Hhere’s my questions:

  • What is your signature Starbucks drink?

I switch around, but I always order everything skinny.  Hazelnut Macchiato, Caramel Macchiato. and Vanilla Lattes are some of my favorites.

  • What’s the strangest advice that you’ve ever been given, yet you swear by it?

I don’t know about strange, but my parents have told me, “the worst they can say is no.”  Its really helpful to think of when you’re scared of trying something new or asking for something – if you don’t ask, you’ll never know, and you’ll be in the same position as before.

  • What non-profit organization do you support?

I don’t know that I have one in particular, but I pick causes that resonate with me – autism for my little sister, the Alpha Gamma Delta foundation, children’s charities, breast cancer charities, etc.

  • What was the reasoning behind your parent’s choice for your name?

Well, considering my name was one of the most popular of the 80s, that’s probably all it was.  They went back and forth between Jessica and Jennifer, but ultimately one of them didn’t like Jennifer (I think my Dad).  They also talked about Rebecca and Caryn (which my Dad hated because he hates when names are spelled weird).  My middle name is Lea, pronounced like Lee – my Mom didn’t like Leigh, and my Dad said Lee was a boy’s name.  So I’m Jessica Lea.

  • Are you a shower singer? If so, what songs are in your watery set list?

Definitely not.  Just was never my thing.

  • What’s the worst date you’ve ever been on?

Probably the one where my very first boyfriend said “I love you” about a month in…and I didn’t.  I was like, um…thanks?

  • Do you have any tattoos?

No.  I’d love to get Hokie feet someday, but I really am a wimp when it comes to needles…I can’t even look when they draw blood or put IVs in.  Thank goodness I never saw my epidural needle.

  • What do you think the fox says?

I have no idea what this means or what it’s all about…and I don’t really want to know.

  • If you were 16, what advice would you have given your future (current) self?

Relax.  Enjoy everything you’ve worked for…and keep it up!

  • What song would be on the soundtrack of your life?

 Every single one of Lady Antebellum’s songs.  Plus some 90s boy bands and Spice Girls thrown in for fun.

  • What is something embarrassing about yourself?

This is one of those questions you can never think of an answer to immediately, but always think of later.  Maybe that I have a bad habit of saying things before I speak?

  1. LOVE reading these and getting to know my blogger friends better!
    Have you ever tried gingerbread white hot chocolate from Starbucks? My weakness!
    And I’m totally not a shower singer. Never was, never will be. But my hubs is and it totally cracks me up!

    1. Thanks! I haven’t tried that – I’m not a huge fan of gingerbread normally, but I may have to try that when it comes around this year. And shower singers are too funny!

  2. I don’t know how I missed this post, but love your answers. It’s always fun to find out more about bloggers you follow.

    Love the Foundation shout-out – sending some squirrely love your way. Go AGD.

    Depending on where you get it, I promise tattoos really aren’t that bad. You don’t even have to look. With little Hokie feet, it would be over so quickly! If you ever summon up the nerve to do it (which I really think some day you will!) just don’t go the week before your period, since your pain tolerance is generally lower. I made that mistake one time for my hip tattoo and YIKES! My other ones haven’t been bad!

    And the fox is the most annoying song of 2013. You’ve got to see the music video one time.. then you’ll understand…

I’m Jess! I’m a working mama of two sweet sisters living in the DC area. This is my space to share inspiration, real stories of working motherhood, recipes, style, and more! I can’t start my day without coffee and always try to show the real side of motherhood – the good and the challenging. I’m so glad you’re here – thanks for following along on my journey!
