Get to Know Me

  • The nickname “Murt” came from the Smith family because they also had a Sarah.  Even though I am now married and my name has changed, I will always answer to “Murt” (or “Murty Murt” as my friend Jess calls me).
  • I am a lifelong New York Giants fan.  It’s a family thing.
  • I love all animals that are cute and cuddly looking.  Especially kitties.  And pandas.
  • I enjoy doing arts and crafts, especially sewing and scrapbooking.  My problem is finding the time to do it!
  • I have a passion for fashion and love to shop.  I could probably do it competitively.  My dream job would be getting paid to be a personal shopper.
  • My other dream job would be to get paid to travel and review resorts, spas, etc.  If I ever win the lottery, I would travel around the world!
  • I’ve always been into cars but my husband has turned me into a race monster.  I love going to the Tudor United Sports Car Championship races and watching everything except for NASCAR.  I’ve turned it in a mission to get a photo with Patrick Dempsey and his autograph; I try to sneak a peek of him at each race.  It’s almost like Where’s Waldo!  Okay, if I won the lottery, I’d also buy a garage full of cars – Audi R8 LMS, 50th Anniversary Edition Porsche 911, BMW M5, Acura NSX, Nissan GT-R… The list goes on.
  • I always joke that I’m actually a 500 pound man because I am ALWAYS hungry.  From making it to eating it, I love food.  If I refuse food, you should probably take me to a doctor or at least take my temperature; I’m probably sick.
  • I am a natural night owl.  If I’m in bed before 11 pm or asleep before midnight, I’ve either been running a marathon or I’m probably sick.
  • The last two reminded me of one more:  Another nickname of mine is “Sarah Bear”.  This is quite appropriate for a few reasons.  One, I am as grumpy as a bear when you try to wake me up in the mornings.  I will likely growl and possibly punch or kick.  Two, I become “hangry” so you SHOULD feed this animal.  Three, if you mess with someone that I care about, I will turn into a momma bear!  I am super protective and will defend to the death.
  • My daddy always said “dynamite comes in small packages”.  Well, I am petite.  And quite the spitfire.  Go ahead and get me all riled up…
  • I am very meticulous and like things just so; some would call me a perfectionist.  I also get easily distracted by new or shiny things.  Is it possible to have OCD and ADD?
  • I am easily excitable about things I am passionate about.  This often happens randomly.  “If don’t mean to interrupt people, I just randomly remember things and get really excited.”  Saw that on Facebook and it describes me perfectly.
  • I am very random and full of quirks (if you haven’t figured that out already).  Some people probably think I’m just plan weird but my friends and family understand me and love me as I am
