Thanks again to Trish for sharing the love with me! And now, on to her questions:
1. Why did you start your blog?
I started my blog as an easy way to share pictures and stories with my mom. This was before I was on Facebook, and my mom had limited computing skills. (You should see her now!!)
2. What’s your favorite flavor of ice cream? If you don’t like ice cream, please explain what’s wrong with you.
I like ice scream just fine, thank you! My favorite flavor is mint chocolate chip!
3. What do you like most about yourself?
I like my willingness to help out other people. I serve on the board of a local non-profit and I've had a really good time help them raise money and getting the word out about who they are and what they do.
4. What’s your favorite season, and why?
I'm a 100% summer girl! I like it hot and sunny. You can go outside and spend time instead of being cooped up in the house. Catching fireflies, sleeping in a sunbeam, staying out late; those ar all summer things I love doing!
5. If you could go to one place in the whole world, where would it be?
I would go to New Zealand/Australia. I've just always thought the area looks beautiful in pictures.
6. What’s the most delicious thing you know how to make?
Lately, I have been on this stir-fry kick and I think it is pretty delicious. I don't really have a recipe, I just cook up some beef or chicken, throw in a few veggies, add some soy sauce and a big glob of peanut butter! Yum!!
7. If you could be any animal for a day, what would you be and why?
I'd be a cat. Then I could sleep all day and only get up to amble over to the food dish and nibble on something yummy (to a cat, presumably!) Then I'd go find something to throw up on...wait! No, I'd skip that part of being a cat.
8. What’s your favorite book?
I have so many favorites, it's really hard to choose. I actually listed quite a few of them yesterday!
9. What states/countries have you lived in?
I was born in Texas and lived there til I was 7 or 8, I think. Then we moved to Virginia and I"m still here.
10. If you had a choice between leaving your hair exactly the way it looks when you get out of bed OR putting makeup on for the day, what would you choose?
Well, I don't really wear a lot of makeup, so I'd be fine skipping that as long as I could still put on my face lotion so my face doesn't feel so dry.
11. What’s your least favorite chore around the house?
SO MANY CHOICES!!! I think my ultimate least favorite would be laundry, I just feel like no matter how much I do, it's still there!
