Seriously ya’ll can I just say how happy I am that this week is ending. Like I seriously need to take some vacation time because work is killin’ me lately! And I have been exhausted lately, like get in bed at 8:30 exhausted haha #grandmaproblems.
But anyways my lovely friend Sarah over at Pickyrunner nominated my for the Liebster Award and since Fridays are great for being lazy I will definitely take a little Q & A sesh instead of something more serious. So without further ado…lets get on this!
1) What does your ideal weekend look like?
Hmmm ok well lets start with Friday night…ideally I would come home put on my sweat pants and have some friends over for a little girls night aka we would drink wine and eat yummy snacks…maybe throw on The Notebook for good measure. Saturday would then consist of sleeping in later than normal, have some coffee and chat with my momma, go for a long run along the beach, and then have a fun event to go to Saturday night. And finally Sunday I would get up and go for a walk, then meet up with friends for brunch, and finally spend the evening relaxing with my family. haha wait this is pretty much my weekend most of the time haha so I guess I am pretty content with my little routines!
2) What’s your favorite form of social media?
Definitely Instagram. I love it because it’s super easy to scroll through and I love seeing just little snapshots of everyone’s days. It is much simpler than facebook and I like all the filters too! haha
3) What’s your favorite quote?
So I feel like I love quotes..like I always scan through the Pinterest quote section because there is nothing better than reading a few short sentences and having them resonate with you or with something you are going through. So because I kind of have a lot of favorite quotes I have decided just to share a few of them.
See…I told you I had a lot! I probably could have posted a million more, but I stopped myself at 5!
4) If you could travel anywhere right now, where would you go?
Hmm this is hard! There are sooo many places I want to travel to, so once again I am not going to pick one… I will share the few places that are on the top of my list!
Santorini, Greece. Probably only because I thought it was GORGEOUS after watching The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Lame..I know!
Paris obviously…because what girl doesn’t want to go there! But I would preferably like to go with a boyfriend or husband…I mean it is the city of love!
New York!! I can’t believe I have actually never been to the east coast. So this needs to happen like ASAP! And New York is just so iconic, there are so many spots I want to go within the city.
England! I was an english and history double major in college, so I think it’s pretty obvious why England is on the top of my list. I love all the history encompassed there, I think I would just spend all of my time wandering around and visiting all the historic spots. Ah this trip needs to happen soon.
I could list so many more places I want to go…Napa, Hawaii, back to New Orleans, Savannah, Italy, Ireland…seriously once I start makin some moolah I will most definitely be using it to travel!
5) Who would you want to spend every day with for the rest of your life if you could only choose one person?
Well, I have always been a romantic at heart so I mean I would love to find and marry my soul mate and then spend every day with them! A little corny I know, but hey it’s the truth.
6) What’s your favorite movie?
Ah, I don’t know why this question is so hard for me..but it totally is! I mean again I will list my top faves…Wizard of Oz, Back To The Future, Walk The Line, Hocus Pocus, Sandlot, Home Alone, The Notebook, Skeleton Key, Twister…I have an eclectic taste.
7) What’s your favorite sport to watch?
Now this one is easy…HOCKEY!!! My parents are super into hockey and so we go to games like all the time! But really this sport is awesome…it’s face paced, people fight each other, the players are hotties, games don’t last forever (like football), and it’s just as fun to watch on the TV as it is to go to games. Well, going to games is actually way better…but I’m just as entertained watching it at home!
8) What’s your favorite thing about your favorite season?
Well I go back and forth on what my favorite season is…but I think I am going to have to go with summer. I love that it stays light so late, I love being able to go for evening walks when it’s still warm out, I love going to the beach, I love the 4th of July, I love bbqs, I love feeling tan, I love bonfires, I love waking up early to go kayaking with my mom, I love boat rides….clearly there is a lot I love about summer! I mean there’s nothing like a California summer!
9) What is your biggest inspiration?
This is a tough one. I think my biggest inspiration for how I live my life now has a lot to do with my recovery from my eating disorder. It taught me that I have so much to live for and so many people who care for me and that inspired me to want to become the very best version of myself that I could be. However, I am also very spiritual so I draw a lot of my daily inspiration from God. I truly find strength in my faith and trust in God and his plan for me. Things may not always go the way that I want them to, but at the end of the day it is my spirituality that keeps me inspired to keep going when things get rough.
10) If you could pick any milkshake flavor/combination, what would it be? (I need some ideas!)
hahaha only Sarah would ask this question…but hm let me think about this. Here are so possible flavor combos that are my personal faves….cake batter and cookie dough, chocolate and butterfinger, banana/graham cracker/peanut butter, plain old vanilla and m&ms (think old school mcflurry), chocolate/caramel/cookie dough….and I think that about fulfills my ice cream quota for the day. Def going to be hitting up Coldstone at some point this weekend. You can add that to my ideal weekend plan haha
So anyways there you have it! Hope you enjoyed getting to know me a tad bit better! haha See you all back next week!
