The Sound of Silence

Hello! My blogging lately has been really sporadic. It's summer vacation (and a different custody schedule than the rest of the year). Our wedding is less than a month away. I still don't have a functioning oven or a dishwasher. Just thinking about trying to do One.More.Thing twists my insides into knots.

But I like the routine of blogging. The more I do it, the easier it is. The opposite is also true. So to ease myself back into the groove, here is a little get-to-know-you, adapted from my blogging friend Vicki who is also from Michigan and is an empty-nester. Feel free to add your own facts in the comments.

1. Are you named after someone? My name is Mary Carrie, and I was named after one of Robert Kennedy's daughters.

2. When was the last time you cried? Yesterday (more of a sentimental tearing up)

3. Do you have kiddos? Yes, Griffin (11) and Bela (7) and I would LOVE more once I am remarried. :)

4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself? Yes, definitely!

*5. What book are you reading right now? The Good Spy: the Life and Death of Robert Ames but the library just emailed me that The Goldfinch is in!

6. Do you like your handwriting? Not really

*7. What's your favorite ice cream? Chocolate chip

8. What's the first thing you notice about people? Their facial expression.

9. What's the color of your eyes? Blue.

10. Scary movie or happy endings? Happy endings! 

11. Favorite TV shows? The Americans, 24, Modern Family, The Goldbergs, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Seventh Heaven, Gravity Falls, and Detroit Tigers baseball/MSU football and basketball. 

12. Summer or Winter? Summer

13. Hugs or kisses? Lots of both!

14. Do you have any special talent? I am really good at recognizing voices, which is odd because I am definitely a more visual person. I am also excellent at finding LEGO pieces. ;)

*15. What is one thing you can't live without around the house? I like having a handheld shower head to clean the tub
more easily.

16. What are your hobbies? Reading, decorating, organizing, yoga, long walks

17. Do you have any pets? Not currently :(  --although my kids got a Fur-Real Friends kitty this weekend ;)

18. Favorite movie? Rear Window

19. What color is your car? Silver

20. What do you want to be when you grow up? :) An interior decorator


  1. Very interesting knowing you more Carrie! I have one - what is the best advise you could give your 16 year old self ?

  2. I love questionnaires like this! So fun getting to know some random facts about you!

  3. I'm listening to The Goldfinch on audiobook right now. I'm up to Chapter 6 and fascinated at how I think I'm picking up on what's going on, for very personal reasons, and eager to see if I'm right. Very good so far. Excited to find out how things develop. So for the time being, I highly recommend it. Not enough online time to contribute any further comments in response to the rest of these questions. Love getting to know you a little better, though. Have a great summer! :-)

    1. Since I'm not much of an auditory learner I think audiobooks are a good way to train that part of my brain. :) I had no idea how lengthy The Goldfinch was, though, until I picked it up from the library last night. I'm excited to get started and see what it's all about. I hope you are having a great summer, too! Xoxo


Thanks so much for commenting! I love to read what you have to say. ~Carrie
