FMM: Girly Questions

1. Do you like to shop? I really don’t! This may be a holdover from when I was bigger and couldn’t find anything nice in my size, or it may be I just get impatient with crowded stores, etc., but I am not a big shopper.

2. How often do you wear makeup? Every day when I’m working; otherwise almost never. I’ll put it on if I’m going out with my hubby.

3. How do you feel about nail polish? I like it, but don’t chose to make the time for regular manicures, and use my hands so much that the polish is always chipped, smeared, etc… so I rarely wear it.

4. Do you consider yourself to be a feminist? Sort of – I grew up believing I could do anything (thanks, Mom & Dad!), and that my gender was irrelevant – I still believe and act that way. 🙂

5. What’s your biggest challenge as a woman? Learning to let go of the “superwoman” inside. You know what? We may not be able to have it all after all! Sometimes, something has to give – I’m a decent mom, a good wife, and have a great career, but I’m a lousy housekeeper – and that’s ok.

6. Do you wear skirts and dresses? Or do you prefer something else? I wear dress pants all winter long, but skirts and dresses in the summer once it warms up. For casual wear, I have ONE pair of jeans, but lots of yoga pants – I wear those everywhere!

7. How do you feel about high heels? I’m only 5’4″, so I almost always wear heels – if I wear flats to work, so many people are surprised at how short I am!

8. Do you subscribe to magazines? If so, which ones? Currently I have a few; Women’s Health, Shape, Prevention and Runner’s World. The only one I’ll renew is Runner’s World. I also want to subscribe to Triathlete.

9. Do you shave your legs/wax/ use depilatory creams or go au naturale? Shave, every couple of days. Anything else gives me a rash.

10. What do you like most about being a woman? This is a bit of a tough question! I like how I feel when I get dressed up and really look good; but I’m not a typical nurturing type. I do enjoy being a woman, I wouldn’t change it!

  1. Hiya! Great answers, and I especially like the part about letting go of the “superwoman” inside 🙂 Our answers for number 10 are really similar – I’m definitely not a nurturing type either. Have a great week!

      Thanks for dropping by! Yep, I am really not a girly girl – the running joke is, my hubby likes chick flicks, while I’m bored if there aren’t enough explosions in a movie!! 🙂

    LOL I always tell my husband he’s a much better wife than I am. To say I’m not nurturing would be an understatement.

    Love your blog! I’m adding it to my reading list.
