Answer Me This: Embarassing Outfits are the Worst.

1. Beach or Mountains? Where would you rather be?

Probably the mountains....although most of my life, I have lived near the beach.  The beach is great....except for all that sand, and sun and yucky seaweed, and jellyfish, and sharp rocks.  No, actually, I love the beach.   When we lived in RI, we'd go about once a week, all summer long and by the end, I was pretty much, all beached out. `  I find the beach hard to tolerate in the morning...if it's really hot, I have a tendency to get sun migraines.  I prefer to go later in the afternoon, when the sun isn't as strong. 

Then of course, when we lived in FL, we went to the Naples beaches...which are all kinds of awesome.  White water and no seaweed.  Loved it!

However, I really love the mountains.  When we lived in Kentucky, we used to go hiking quite a bit and I loved it.  I never got all-mountained out.  

2. Which is more fun: Christmas Eve, or Christmas morning?
Christmas Eve. I love the anticipation and preparation. 
3. What’s the most embarrassing childhood outfit you remember wearing?
I can't remember a specific outfit, but I can remember lots of outfit malfunctions.  Like that time I was in  Jr. high and wore white pants on one of *those days* that all females know they should never wear white wants. 

And, of course there have been times where I felt way underdressed or overdressed for an occasion...that is always embarrassing.

And, I hated those spirit days in school...where you had to wear your Halloween costume, or clashing clothes or whatever.  I always found those to be super embarrassing. 

And, I used to be in chorus (heaven knows why, because I am a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad singer) but on performance days we had to wear a white shirt and black skirt.  I hated those days.  I didn't mind performing (I was just one of many in the chorus) but I hated having to wear a certain outfit.  I found it embarrassing.  I hated wearing anything that made me stand out or felt "different' or anything like that. 

I feel embarrassed in my clothes a I get someplace and realize that my skirt is ripped or  I have a stain on my shirt, or something is actually sheerer than I thought.

Sometimes I think it would be easier if everyone just walked around naked**...cause that wouldn't be embarrassing at all. LOL  Think how much better we would feel about our own bodies, if we could actually see everyone else's sagging bellies, and stretch marks and fat rolls.  Sometimes I think we tend to imagine that everyone else has an 8-pack, flat stomach underneath their clothes.. or maybe that's just me.  Anyway...moving on.   
4. Your house is quiet, you don’t have to do work (housework included). What do you do?
Blog or watch something on Netflix. 

5. What movie do you want to watch when you’re feeling under the weather?

I don't have the attention span to watch a full length movie....even when sick.  If I'm super sick I will sometimes go to bed and watch whatever series I happen to be going through (very, very slowly) on Netflix. 
6. Did you have an American Girl doll when you were little? If so, which one?

No, I think I'm too old for American Girl dolls.  I looked it up..the first American Girl doll was launched in 1986.  I would have been 8 or 9 years old.  But, my family never gets anything when it's first launched...we are always YEARS behind the trend. When I was 8 or 9...Cabbage Patch Kids were all the I had one of those. By the time American Girl caught on and was popular, I was too old.   I think my littlest sister had an Addy doll however.  I think.

And, Heidi and Greta have American Girl dolls.  They love them.  Here they are, having a Pow Wow....with a few non-American Girl dolls thrown in for good measure.

And, that's go see Kendra for more Answer Me This.

**I don't actually think we should all be nudists.  I realize there are good modesty reasons to wear clothes.  Plus, we'd all freeze in the winter.

  1. I had to laugh at this post -- about the embarrassing outfits. We've all been there.

    Glad to have found you via the Answer Me This linkup.

  2. I have lots of embarrassing clothes memories too. :) Even this morning, I was very self conscious because my skirt was sheer and my slip was maybe not sufficiently not-sheer. Clothes are a pain!

  3. Amelia, I nominated you for the Catholic Writer's Award. Find out about it in my post today. :)
