Just A Little Kristina Trivia + A Giveaway

We're taking a little break from serious posts to share silliness with you all this week - and I think it's perfect timing, being the last official week of summer. No, don't go by that silly calendar thing. summer runs from Memorial Day through Labor Day...no more, no less. Think that's the only weird/crazy/silly thing about me? Au contrair, lovelies...here are ten more! Oh! And don't forget to leave a comment - you could win a prize!

1. What’s a nickname only your family calls you?
Kritti - my older brother started it, I still don't know why...but if you ever find me with the fam, that is what they'll be calling me. As nicknames go, it's not bad...you should hear my sister's.....

2. What’s a weird habit of yours?
I don't bite my nails, but when I'm in deep thought my thumbnail (usually the left) goes right between my teeth.

3. Do you have any weird phobias?
You mean other than spiders and other creepy-crawly things? Nah, I'm good!

4. What’s a song you secretly love to blast & belt out when you’re alone?
Lordy, there are so many...anything by Whitney Houston. Miranda Lambert has a few sing-in-the-shower songs. Lately, though, I've been all about Taylor Swift. Doesn't matter which song, if I hear Taylor, I start singing.

5. What’s one of your biggest pet peeves?
Inconsiderate drivers! Texting and driving, not using signals properly, not understanding how a 4-way stop works...I seriously think we need to institute some kind of every-10-years refresher course for driving!

6. What’s one of your nervous habits?
I bite my lower lip when I'm nervous...and, not surprisingly, so do a lot of my characters!

 7. What side of the bed do you sleep on?
The right.

 8. What was your first stuffed animal & it’s name?
Gosh, there were so many stuffed animals in my room as a kid. I had a whole collection of Care Bears, random stuffed animals from camp...and depending on the week, any one of them would have been my favorite!

9. What’s the drink you always order at Starbucks?
Green tea! I'm not much of a coffee fanatic. I like their fruit-infused teas, too.

10. What’s the beauty rule you preach, but never actually practice?
Sunscreen! I always preach it but probably 90% of the time, I forget it. I blame the fact that I work in my home, so most days I don't leave, but I really should remember...

Okay, your turn! Feel free to answer any or all of my Getting To Know You questions in the comments...I'll choose a random commenter to win an autographed copy of Protecting the Quarterback + some fun Kristina swag!

  1. When I was little and couldn't pronounce the Lizzie that I was called then, I called myself Yitzy. My siblings still resort to that when they want to get my attention.

  2. My favorite summer drink from Starbucks is the Strawberry Acai Refresher with a pump of peach and pump of mango--it's tropically refreshing :) And I can't wait for Eggnog to arrive. After a long day at work, that just hit the spot. Too bad it's only around for a couple of months unlike Pumpkin Spice which keeps arriving earlier and earlier. LOL

    2. I always order a pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks. Well, the rest of the year it's a berry smoothie, actually.

  6. My sister Kate called me Nanny all the time--since she's gone, the only one who gets to use that nickname is Grandboy--I am Nanny to him and it warms my heart!
