Okay, so I know I love to know a little bit about the person behind the blog I am reading, so I figured I would write a post to tell ya’ll a little about me.
Please note, I took these questions from The Southern Thing, blog post.
1. What made you start blogging?
Well, mainly I am looking to find that one thing I am truly passionate about. I’m a twenty-something with no real…ahh, hobby I guess you could put it. I work a lot, I am a homeowner with piles of laundry always around, rooms to clean, meals to make, puppies to care for and a wonderful guy to make happy. I often feel stuck in a 9am-5pm corporate type job where I can’t really express myself, and honestly, don’t always enjoy. I enjoy reading blogs, my favorites The Southern Thing and Aubrey Kinch, as well as other lifestyle blogs, crafting DIY projects blogs, and I am always so inspired so I decided to try one of my own.
2. If you could give any tip about blogging, what would it be?
I am certainly no pro here, I just started my first blog this past month. BUT I know I certainly love pictures when I am reading blogs, and I love to add pictures to my blog posts, so I’d say make sure you always include fun/pretty/eye catching pictures with every post!
3. What is your favorite food?
Uhh, does ice cream count as a “food”? Most definitely ice cream, I am an addict.
4. What is your favorite accessory?
Ahh, this is a tough one. Probably my handbag. I literally carry my life in there.
5. What is your favorite thing to do during your spare time?
Spare time, what is that?? Kidding, I can usually be found doing something with my two puppies. I love to take my lab on jogs, and both of them to the trails right our house with my boyfriend, Jack.
6. Do you have any pets?
Yes I do. Two actually. Two fun, energetic, loyal, loving dogs: Sadie and Regan.
I absolutely loved driving around at Christmas time with my Daddy and my big sister looking at the houses decorated in Christmas lights. We used to go on drives and my sister would look out one side and I would the other. We could count the number of houses that had lights. I still love to do this, except I go with Jack at Christmas time just to look at the Christmas lights everywhere.
8. Where do you see yourself in five years?
Hopefully married with a child and maybe another one on the way. I’ve been with my wonderful guy, Jack, for well, let’s see, 8 years on Thursday (8/28)! We are not married yet, but I am secretly hoping he pops the question soon, and we have a small wedding, and little one running around within the next few years. I cannot wait to be a wife and a mommy.
I’d also love to have this blog really up and running, with a super cute website design, and maybe even have a decent following of readers.
9. What is your favorite holiday and why?
Christmas, hands down. I love all of the beautiful Christmas displays, the lights outside the houses, and spending time with family. Okay, you got me…of course presents too!
10. What kind of music do you like listening to and who is your favorite artist?
Country!! I am a northeastern-er, yes, but I am secretly a southern girl at heart. Luke Bryan, LOVE.
11. If you could pick one place to live for the rest of your life, where would you pick?
I am not 100% sure the exact location, but definitely somewhere that has seasons like here in the Northeast. That is one of my favorite parts of living here. I love the change in weather. I could never move somewhere such as Florida, I just can’t handle the heat and humidity – I am much more a fall/winter gal.
12. Who is your favorite author?
Nicholas Sparks.. on the rare occasion I do read, I absolutely love every single book of his.
13. What is your dream car?
Ah, well, actually I would dream to have a chauffeur every day, ha! I am an extremely nervous driver and hate to do it. It doesn't help that I got into a pretty bad accident, oh 6 years ago now, and I am even more scared to drive now, but I do it. If I wasn't such a baby when it comes to driving I would want some kind of SUV, I love Jeep Cherokees, or the Acura MDX and I only like white or black for colors.. but I could never drive an SUV. I am perfectly content with my small, compact, Acura TSX I am currently driving.
14. What do you like to do in your free time, other than blog?
See number 4 above.
15. Where would you want to live when you grow up?
Hmm, will I ever really grow up??? Well I suppose I don’t really have a choice. I really would like to be anywhere that is close to my family; especially my parents and sister - location doesn't necessarily matter to me.
16. If you could have any animal as a pet, what would it be?
Elephant! I just love them.
17. If you could have any superpower for a day, what would it be?
Reading people’s minds. Although I would love to have this “power”, it could be somewhat dangerous…
18. What is your favorite season?
Fall!! I love everything about fall. The colors, the fashion, apple picking, hay rides, apple pie, pumpkins, pumpkin carving, flannel shirts, knee high boots, cool crisp air, apple cider, mulled spice sent! Ahh take me to fall!
19. Are you a beach, city, or nature person?
Hmmm, part of me says all three. I guess if I had to pick one I would say nature, only because I want to live on a large piece of land on a lake one day. Lots of land for my fur-babies to run around, and a lake for my best guy to fish on early in the morning. The city is definitely nice to visit, and grab a nice dinner and drinks. And I could NOT live without the beach in the summer.
20. If you could have any job, what would it be?
I would love to not have to work and spend all my time volunteering to help others. The one thing that truly drives me is making others happy – it is my role here on earth, in this life.
