Lipstick or lip gloss? Lip gloss. Although if we're being really honest here, chapstick all day every day.
What is your favorite fall/winter recipe? This pork chop recipe from Cooking Light. I used butternut squash- and don't let the prunes scare you, I promise they are delicious in this dish!
What song can’t you stop listening to? Oh Taylor Swift...how I hate you and love you all at the same time. Her music is just so damn catchy.
Describe your blog in three words. Goofy, Honest, Everyday-Life
What article of clothing can’t you live without in the winter? Fleece lined leggings. Basically my go to for every single outfit. Even under jeans if I'm waiting for the bus because Cleveland is cold.
What is your favorite part about the city you currently live in? I love how much Clevelander's love Cleveland. I know that sounds silly- but this city has so much pride.
Timeout. Because this video that Michael Symon did is perfection and exactly what I love about my city!
Why did you start your blog? I was a journalism major in college, I did writing competitions and newspaper in high school, writing has just always been a huge part of my life. Until I graduated and my writing was strictly in grants...and nothing will burn you out like grant writing! So I wanted another outlet to write what I wanted to write.
What is the best gift you’ve ever given anyone? Maybe not the best, but definitely top of mind. I gave my dad an early Christmas present and we're going to the Tony Bennett concert tomorrow!!!
What is the best gift you’ve ever received? It's hard to narrow this down. I'm going to be a little cliche and say a bracelet Doug got me for Valentines Day like 5 or 6 years ago. It is the only piece of jewelry that I wear every day, no matter what.
What is your favorite book? The entire Harry Potter series. Without a doubt.
Beach vacation or adventurous road trip? Doug and I are definitely more for an adventurous road trip...but nothing wrong with a good beach vacation (especially Jamaica...in 74 days).
What’s your favorite meal of the day? Dinner. Coming home from work, cooking dinner, drinking wine- it's all the best.
Who’s your celebrity idol? I love Carried Underwood and Miranda Lambert- they both seem so down to earth, and also are complete and total badasses.
What’s your favorite season and why? Spring or Fall. I don't like extreme temps (cold OR hot)- and the weather during these two seasons is perfection.
If you could relive any year of your life, which would it be and why? Freshman year in college- not because I regret or want to change things. But because some of my absolute favorite memories are from this year. It was the BEST and living it again would be glorious.
What’s your favorite word? Fuck is a pretty standard go to for me.
|Thug Life Shirts|
Tator tots or french fries? Tots.
What are your plans for Thanksgiving? We will be spending Thanksgiving with my family at my aunt and uncles house. They just moved back to Cleveland from California and it's been so awesome to have them close again!
What’s your favorite restaurant? Oh man. Do I really have to choose? Washington Place Bistro is probably near the top of that list....for no other reason than shrimp and grits. Nom nom nom.
And since I'm pretty sure all of you have done this at some point in time, I'm just going to skip the whole nominating thing.
