I've mentioned before that I love reading "about me" posts since it's a great way to really get to know the person behind the blog, so guess what you're getting today. Yepp, you guessed it.. another post about me. A few ladies nominated me again for a Liebster Award, so ladies.. you've got questions and I've got some answers! Bear with me people, I have a feeling this may be a long post.
1. What made you start blogging?
You can ask me this question over and over and I'll probably give a different answer each day. Mainly I started this blog as an outlet to reflect back on all the important or fun things happening in my life. And it may or may not give me an excuse to make pretty things on pic monkey, talk about random nonsense, the importance of a big glass of moscato, and meet some awesome and funny people along the way.
2. If you could give any tip about blogging, what would it be?
Well I'm no pro here in the blogging world but if I think one thing is important, it's do it for you. Write what you want to write. Don't worry about everybody else. Everyone will always have an opinion and agree or disagree, but that's what makes us unique. You can't please them all!
3. What is your favorite food?
Again, different day different answer. I love food but I'm probably the pickiest eater (and maybe the only girl who's never had a salad before). One of my all time favorites is seafood, specifically peel-n-eat seafood like boiled crawfish and king crab legs. I could eat my body weight in those. But that's probably not a good idea.
4. What is your favorite thing to do during your spare time?
Shop, drink, eat. And then when I run out of money, sit on my butt and read blogs. That seems to be the cheaper form of entertainment.
I don't have any pets, but I do have a fur child and her name is Hailey. Since that little poodle fur ball is cleaner and quieter than most humans, I've decided she's no longer just a "pet". Is that crazy? Probably.
6. Can you tell us about one of your favorite childhood memories?
This is a tough one. Maybe that one time I threw a fit late at night because I was the only one out of all my cousins that didn't have a big purple Barney dinosaur to hold? So then my dad proceeded to go buy me one immediately. This was when I learned how to get my way as a spoiled only child. Dad, if you're reading, how come that doesn't work anymore?!
7. Where do you see yourself in five years?
Who knows. In a different city for sure. Maybe NYC, Boston, or back South. I'm pretty indecisive, so in 5 years don't be surprised if I've lived in all of those places by then.
8. What is your favorite holiday and why?
Christmas, duh. You get presents... need I say more? Kidding! But I do love Christmas. There's something special about all the joy and family gatherings that surrounds us during the happiest time of the year that is irreplaceable.
9. What kind of music do you like listening to and who is your favorite artist?
Hmm.. two questions in one (you're cheating)! Let's see... I like just about everything. I can go from dub step, to rap, to indie rock, to country all in matter of about 10 minutes. I like to think of myself as bipolar when it comes down to music. If I named my favorite artists, the list would go on. I love any and every EDM artist, Lil Wayne, and not so much the Taylor Swift, or Kesha type of stuff.
10. If you could pick one place to live for the rest of your life, where would you pick?
See number 8 please. And add an exotic island to the list.
11. Boots or sandals?
Boots! Give me some leggings and boots with fall weather and I'm good to go!
Wow, that was a lot! Are you still reading or did I bore you to death? Well I hope you're still reading because Ellie and Fatima who blog over at Serendipitous Whimsicality wanted to know:
1. Who is your favorite author?
I don't read books, but I do read blogs. See my list of favorite authors here
2. Name a song that best describes your life right now?
Callin' Baton Rouge by Garth Brooks. I'm not a huge country fan, but that is THE song of LSU and I just can't seem to get Louisiana off my mind. I'll be home in a few days and I can't friggin wait!!
3. What is your dream car?
Something that could fly because I don't have the patience for traffic.
4. What do you like to do in your free time, other than blog?
5. Where would you want to live when you grow up?
I'll probably never grow up, but if we get there one day, a penthouse apartment in NYC overlooking Central Park would be nice. Now where's the millionaire matchmaker for that one?
6. If you could have any animal as a pet, what would it be?
A baby giraffe! Those long clumsy legs are just too cute.
7. Who would you say is your role model?
Adam Sandler? I don't know. He somehow figured out how to make millions off of being a complete jackass, so he must know something we don't know.
8. If you could have any superpower for a day, what would it be?
I would love to be able to read minds. People do and say some crazy shiz that makes me wonder what the f*$k far too often.
9. Which fictional character, from a book or movie, would you want to become?
I feel like I'm supposed to say Harry Potter here. But I've never actually read the books or seen all the movies, so disregard that one.
10. Are you a beach, city, or nature person?
Beach and city! Beach bum during the day and city girl at night!
11. If you could have any job, what would it be?
It would be nice to have someone pay me to shop (for myself) that is. Or better yet, have no job at all. It would be nice to own a huge house and have everything in the world and not do a thing for it. Is that asking for too much? If you figure out the trick to that one, let me know.
If you made it this far then I've got some good news for you. You're done !! Thanks for reading the longest self centered blog post in the entire blogosphere!
Linking up w/ Shanna, Marquis, and Sarah.
