About me tag! (I stole this from Ronnie at Bows and Curtseys!)

I took this from Ronnie's blog, you can check hers out HERE!!!  I just think it's fun to learn more about bloggers!

Vital Statistics:

-Name: Sonja

-Nicknames: Well, that depends on who it is.  I'm "Babe" to my hubby, Son-Son to my best friend, Sonj to my sister, Blondie to my dad, Mommy to my daughter, Starryskies to you guys!

-Birthday: August 30, 1985

-Place of Birth: Albany, New York

-Zodiac Sign: I'm a Virgo.  

-Male or Female: Female

-Occupation: Stay at home mommy!  Hopefully to one day be a freelance makeup artist (I've also seriously considered working in a bridal boutique, I'm obsessed with "Say Yes to the Dress," "Amsale Girls," and those types of shows).


-Hair Color: Oh boy haha.  Well, my ends are blonde, the middle is brown, and the roots are brown with blonde highlights.  I have like 700 colors in my hair.

-Hair Length: I say long (when it's straight it covers my boobs haha)

-Eye color: Blue

-Best Feature: I guess my eyes.  I've always gotten a lot of compliments on my hair though.

-Height: 5' 5 1/2" holla!

-Braces?: Not anymore.  I had them when I was in middle school.  I hated them.

-Glasses?: Nope.  It's weird.  I'm like the only one in my family who doesn't wear glasses or contacts.  I'm sure they'll be coming later in life!

-Piercings: Si senor!  I have my ears (2 in each ear and my cartiladge), my nose, and my belly button

-Tattoos: None yet.  I really want one.  But I'm not sure where to get it.  I'm a huge fan of ribcage tattoos but I'm not skinny so I'm thinking it wouldn't look good.

-Righty or Lefty: Righty.

Your 'Firsts':

-First best friend: Technically I'd have to say a girl named Jenna.  She and I had sleepovers when we were still in diapers.  But really I'd have to say Kayla.  We've been friends since 1st grade and we still are friends today.

-First Award: Umm.... I don't know haha!  I won coloring contests in elementary school.  But the first major thing I remember winning was "Most Improved" in 8th grade.  Making a switch from a public school to a private school was really tough.  The expectations were completely different and I wasn't prepared.  It took me a year and a half to get my act together.

-First Sport You Joined: T-Ball.  I didn't want to play.  But I did anyways haha.  I played softball in highschool too.  I'm not sure why.  I really didn't enjoy it (man, those balls leave some nasty bruises, just ask my friend Kim!).  I liked basketball (which I also played) but I wasn't very good, I just thought it was fun.

-First Real Vacation: We used to go camping all the time when I was little.  I remember going to Maine, to Cape Cod, and to our campground in the Catskills.  We also went to Disney World when I was 9.

-First Concert: That would be Michael Bolton.  Let's hear it for Michael Bolton everyone!
Thank you to my sister for that.  We got tickets for his concert one Christmas.  I was jealous that we didn't get Paula Abdul tickets too.


-Movie:  So many!  I love movies!  All of the Toy Story movies, Meet the Robinsons, The Proposal, Easy A, I Love You, Man, Alpha Dog, A Perfect Getaway, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, Bridesmaids... gosh, I could just go on and on forever.   

-TV Show: I don't watch too many shows but I still love Friends, America's Next Top Model, Teen Mom, Project Runway, Say Yes to the Dress, Amsale Girls

-Colors: Well my favorite is purple.  But I have a bunch of favorite color combos.  Purple and orange (or coral), purple and green (any shade), blue and brown...

-Song: This is not an easy question.  I really love the song "Hope" by Twista and Faith Evans
But I still love "Mmm bop" by Hanson (like legit, I start bouncing and singing everytime this song comes on), same with "Baby One More Time" by Britney Spears.  Oh and a new favorite of mine is "Get Your Money Up" by Keri Hilson, Keisha Cole, and Nicki Minaj.

-Candy: Probably York Peppermint Patties.... yummy!  And I also love Swedish Fish

-Restaurant: I don't know.  I like going to inexpensive places.  But if I had to pick one, I'd have to say Canali's in Rotterdam, NY (that's where my hubby proposed to me).

-Store: Target!!!  I love Target.  I could just walk around there forever haha.  

-Book: I really like "Redeeming Love" by Francine Rivers

-Magazine: Allure.  I love Allure.  I also get Glamour but I like Allure better

-Shoes: I'm not as shoe crazy as the average girl but I think that's because I have fat feet (and a bunion.  ewww haha) so I have a hard time finding shoes that fit me well.  But for some reason Target shoes always fit. 


-Feeling: I feel really emotional today which really isn't a common thing for me.  My husband asked me to make fried apples sometime so I made them this morning and he tasted one and said, "I'm not really a fan" and I cried.  And it was so stupid.  

-Single or Taken: Married baby!  It'll be 5 years in April!

-Eating: Nothing.

-Listening To:  My daughter run around with "Bob" which is the stuffed animal that gets sent home from school with the best behaved child of the day (so proud!)!

-Thinking About: These questions

-Wanting: Perhaps another cup of coffee. 
-Watching: The words appear on the computer as I type them.

-Wearing: Jeans and my very '80's sweatshirt I got from Myrtle Beach


-Want Children?: Probably not any more.  But I think I want another dog (which are more work than babies!).

-Want to be Married: Already done!

-Careers in Mind: Makeup artist or bridal consultant (or perhaps a mix of the two).

-Where do you want to live?:  Well, we own our house here in North Carolina but I'd like to say closer to my family, who live in New York.  

                                                            Do You Believe In:

                                                                                       -God: Yup

-Miracles: Sure do. That little girl is my miracle! 

-Love At First sight: No.
-Ghosts: No

-Aliens: I don't think so. 

-Soul Mates:  Sure.  I mean, I think that it's definitely possible to fall in love with multiple people (preferably not at the same time haha).  But I like to think that there's one person who completes you better than anyone else has or will.

-Heaven: Yes.  When my nephew died, it was especially comforting knowing that he's in heaven.  

-Hell: Yes.  And I hope that's where anyone who hurts children the way the man who killed my nephew go (not a nice thing to say, I know, but really, how easy is it to forgive someone for something like that?).

-Kissing on The First Date: If that's what you feel like doing, go for it.

-Yourself:  If I'm being completely honest, probably not as much as I should.

So that's that!  I hope you guys enjoyed reading this!  And I really hope if you have a blog you do this too!  If you leave me a link, I'll definitely read it!  I really honestly enjoy getting to know the person behind the blog!  I hope you have an awesome day!!!  Thanks so much!!
