Unfortunately, I had the post all drafted out and went to take pictures (last minute of course because I've been rushing around like a crazy person) and they did not turn out well at all. I'm going to try again today and hope that I can share the recipe tomorrow because it's a really good one!
In the meantime, I'm happy to be doing a fun survey today. I was tagged by Emma and JW, and loved the fun questions! I hope you enjoy, and I tag all of the bloggers out there to do this survey next!
Are you named after anyone?Nope! I do have an interesting story about my middle name. When my mom was born, nothing sounded good with her first and last name, so my grandparents left out the middle name. My mom passed that down to my sister and me, and neither of us have a middle name either! So, I guess you could say my middle name is "named" after my mom!
When was the last time you cried?I don't really cry very often, especially out of sadness or negative emotion. I mostly shed a tear (just a single tear) when I hear a beautiful song or watch an emotional scene of a movie. A few weeks ago when La'Porsha sang No More Drama on American Idol- I just busted out in tears. It was an incredible performances that ended in everyone bawling their eyes out.
Do you have kids?Nope! Dan and I both want to focus on getting married first ;)
If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?I think about this question a lot. I always want to have the qualities that I look for in a friend- interesting, kind, trustworthy, honest, generous, funny. I hope that I am some of those things!
Do you use sarcasm a lot?I'm not sure if I would say a lot...it gets me in trouble sometimes so I try to dial it back!
Will you ever bungee jump?Already did!
What’s your favorite cereal?To be honest, I'm not a big cereal eater. I don't even know the last time I bought cereal! Whoops!
What’s the first thing you notice about people?How they greet me. I feel like you can tell a lot about someone by the way that they greet you- by their handshake, smile, eye contact, etc. In college, we learned a lot about how to make a great first impression before even saying a word, so now I notice that about other people!
What’s your eye color?I think they're blue, Dan thinks they're green, and they change shade depending on the weather and what I'm wearing.
Scary movie or happy endings?Happy for sure. I always wished that I could handle scary movies but I get way too scared. It's kind of sad!
Favorite smells?Coffee, Marshmallow, Fire, Bath and Body Works Candles
Summer or winter?
Summer all the way.
Computer or television?If Hulu and Netflix are counted for television, I pick that. I work on a computer all day, so when I'm out of work I don't want to look at a computer any more! I like to just relax and have something playing in the background while I cook or work out.
What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home?I think Sweden? You can check out everywhere that I've been on my travel page!
Do you have any special talents?I'm good at picking up instruments quickly. I've played the violin and saxophone, but can also play the trumpet, guitar, piano, clarinet, and viola. I'm not good at all of them, but I can at least pick them up and play!
Where were you born?Pittsburgh! Born and raised!
What are your hobbies?Running, cooking, arts and crafts, traveling, reading, anything outdoors.
Do you have any pets?Yes! Selma, the (other) love of my life.
Favorite movie?To be honest, I'm not a big movie person. I don't really understand the point of re-watching them and don't really own many! I do watch Spirit of the Marathon before every single race that I run though, so I guess that's my pick.
Do you have any siblings?Yes, one sister named Kirsten who's two years older than me. She also went to Penn State and moved to California for a few years. Last year she moved back to Pittsburgh with her husband!
What do you want to be when you grow up?
If money were no object, I would want to be a world traveler and write travel guides on every country in the world. Or be a musician that gets to travel the world playing in amazing locations. Or a world-class chef who gets flown around the world to cook for important people and events. Basically, I just want to get paid to travel!
Ok- your turn! Answer a few questions :)
Thank you to Emma and JW for tagging me!
