1. What is your favorite holiday?
Used to be Christmas. I still like the idea of Christmas, but it's not as special without my family. I really like celebrating St Paddy's. I just discovered I'll be out of town for the St Paddy's parade that we have gone to 4 years in a row and I was pretty upset. So we're gonna have a party instead.
2. If you could spend a week by yourself (no travel companion, just you) anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Sydney. I'd eat all the food and do all the things.
Wardrobe. Now, what I mean by that is if I could magically have a wardrobe full of clothes I genuinely love and would wear, and got rid of all the useless crap, that would be fabulous. It doesn't have to be chanel and louboutins or a full on fancy walk in closet, I just want a few staple pieces I love, without having to continue buying things only to find out I don't like them, if that makes sense.
4. Do you blog most often during the day or at night?
A bit of both. Mainly the day, I think. Weekends mostly.
5. Coffee or Tea?
Tea for life! Hot tea, not cold. Coffee is blecch to me. You can keep it.
Keep Instagram fo sho. What would I do without my selfies?
7. Bath or Shower?
Mary Poppins will always have a special place in my heart because it was the very first play I ever saw. The Lion King was very good, and we saw Wicked and The Nutcracker when we were in NYC and they were both amazing.
9. Cats or Dogs?
Gee, I don't know.
That being said, I love dogs too. Cats just a smidgen more.
10. You kill an hour in front of your television. You watch reality tv, a drama, a documentary, a comedy?
Doctor Who, but I would always choose a book first.
11. Do you dance, sing, or play a musical instrument?
I dance and sing but not well. Not in public that's for sure. I played the recorder and triangle in primary school, do they count?
1. If you could change one thing in your past what would it be.
I wouldn't change anything to be honest. I don't believe things happen for a reason but I do believe I made the choices I made and I am here because of it, and I like here. However, if I could - I would have taken better care of my teeth when I was younger, especially after yesterdays torture.
2. What is your go to comfort food?
Just food. Food makes me happy. But I guess when I'm sad, I go for chips. Or milkshakes. Or nachos. Or ice cream. Or fries. Or gluten. Yeah, probably gluten.
3. What was the last book you read?
The Jessica Darling Series - read it! It's awesome. Like, no really. Awesome. I am currently up to book 4 and cannot wait to finish.
4. Do your close friends/family know about your blog?
My husband and best friend know. My best friend found out accidentally, and she is totally gonna guest post soon - get ready! I also just recently (like last week) told my other best friend, she's an avid blog reader and I was super nervous but she couldn't have been more supportive and awesome and just all around fabulous.
5. What is your dream job?
I don't have one, I enjoy what I do. My degree is in HR and I wouldn't mind working in HR, but really 'dream job' would be reading books for a living. Good books though, not crappy ones.
6. Best thing about being a blogger?
The community, duh.
7. Twitter or Instagram?
Instagram gets two votes! I still barely understand Twitter.
8. Favourite show to binge watch?
Binge watching is my favourite method of watching any show because I am impatient and don't like to wait. I'd say Doctor Who, Friends, Gilmore Girls, Downton Abbey and Grey's Anatomy though.
9. If you could visit with anyone dead or alive who would it be?
My Nana. Or Jane Austen.
10. Who is your celebrity crush?
I really like Keira Knightley. I know, judge away.
11. Why did you start your blog?
I was lonely. It was shortly after I had decided to stay in the US so even though I had KC and friends, I didn't get closure from my old life. I never expected to stay, I didn't realise that the last time I saw my family would be the last time, or the last time I had a milkshake or meat pie would be the last time... Of course it wasn't the last time, but it was still hard to suddenly have this piece of me missing and I felt a little like I didn't belong - even though I always felt the other way, out of place in Aus, home in KY. Can't win with me. The blog helped me settle in my new life, talk about my old life, and make new friends that were all mine.
I'm not gonna do the nominating jazz, if you want to do it please do! Do all the questions, or whichever ones you'd like!
Are recorders a thing here? Have you read The Jessica Darling Series yet?!
