Mendi's About Me
1. Do you have a middle name?
My middle name is Ann, which is also my mom's name.
2. What is/was your favorite subject in school?
Definitely English. I have always loved to read & write.
3. What's your favorite drink?
Starbucks Non-Fat White Mocha with whip. Gotta have the whip!
4. Favorite songs at the moment?
Anything by Adele. I go through phases with music. It varies from Eminem to Taylor Swift. The last three CD's that I bought were Adele, Keane & Mumford and Sons.
5. What would you name your children?
Right now, we're only thinking of names for kids of the four-legged variety. We prefer to meet our puppy and see their personality before naming them. After we met Nugget for the first time, we knew instantly that she was a "Nugget." Zoey is rarely called by her actual name...most of the time it's Buggie, which was what I nicknamed her shortly after we brought her home. Their "gangsta" names are Nugz & Bugz, because obviously two chocolate Labs need gangsta names. Duh.
6. Do you participate in any sports?
I don't participate in any sports now, but I did play softball and compete in gymnastics growing up. Now I don't dare do anything that will break a nail. Hahaha.
7. Favorite book?
It's hard to pick just one. I read a book two years ago called The Scent of Rain and Lightning by Nancy Pickard that I loved so much that I finished it in less than 24 hours. I basically put it down only long enough to get a few hours of sleep. I prefer books that have a controversial topic or something that is ripped straight from the headlines, like a Jodi Picoult book. But sometimes I'm up for a good ol' chick book too, like something by Nicholas Sparks or Kristin Hannah.
8. Favorite color?
I love coral and navy. If it's in a stripe pattern, then that's even better!
9. Favorite animal?
Obviously dogs...I especially have a weakness for Labs, of course.
10. Favorite perfume?
Viva la Juicy by Juicy Couture
11. Favorite holiday?
Thanksgiving...for the three F's: family, food & football
12. Have you graduated High School?
Yes, Class of 1996.
13. Have you been out of the country?
I have been to Mexico twice. We honeymooned just south of Playa del Carmen in 2004, then went to Puerto Vallarta in 2009 for Jayme's wedding.
14. Do you speak any other languages?
I took three years of French in high school, but unfortunately it's one of those things that because I haven't used it on a regular basis, I've lost it.
15. Do you have any siblings?
I have two older sisters, Tracy & Shelley.
16. What's your favorite store?
Nordstrom, Sephora, Anthropologie & Fossil. They get me in trouble.
17. Favorite restaurant?
My favorite local restaurant is The Boathouse at Sunday Park. It's on the Swift Creek Reservoir, which is where the hubz & I got married. They have an amazing outdoor deck and the sunsets in the summer are spectacular.

See across the water there?? That's where the hubz & I got married in a gazebo on the water in April 2004.
18. Do you like school?
I enjoyed school, but I can't say that's a time in my life that I look back at and miss.
19. Favorite YouTubers?
There are many, many YouTubers that we subscribe to here on Her Late Night Cravings who I watch on a regular basis. I love to catch up on YouTube videos at night on my iPhone just before I fall asleep. I love Makeup by Tiffany D for her tutorials, The Current Boobies for just mere curiosity of what she's up to and JLovesMac1 for pure entertainment value.
20. Favorite Movie?
My faves include Stepbrothers, Bridesmaids and Tommy Boy. Kinda shows my maturity level, huh?!?
21. Favorite TV show?
Oh geez! I totally get sucked into the reality shows like Big Brother, Bachelor Pad, Jersey Shore and Flipping Out. My guilty pleasure this summer was Love In The Wild. By my #1 fave TV show by far is The Vampire Diaries! Two words: Ian Somerhalder. Yes please!!
22. PC or MAC?
