20 things about me! Weee!

This blog post is a part of the ’20 Things You Might Not Know About Me’ Blog Tag started by April from Blacksburg Belle. She began this blog tag experiment to build community among creatives, help us bloggers to connect more and get to know each other better. This month’s topic is all about sharing just a little too much information about yourself. If you’d like to participate or want more info, check out the beginning post right here.



Question 1: How tall are you? 

I think I am 5′ 5 1/2″.

Question 2: Do you have a hidden talent? If so, what?

I can touch my tongue to my nose and wiggle my ears. Is that a thing?

Question 3: What’s your biggest blog-related pet peeve?

Broken links or images without credit. 

Question 4: What’s your biggest non-blog related pet peeve?

Teeth clicking while eating. UGH. 

Question 5: What’s your favorite song?

At the moment probably that song from One Republic- “Love Runs Out”. 

Question 6: What’s your favorite Etsy shop that isn’t yours?

Pencil Shavings Studio— I love the name and all the beautiful colors!

Question 7: What’s your favorite way to spend your free time when you’re alone?

Knitting/crocheting and letting my mind wander. 

Question 8: What’s your favorite junk food?

Ruffles potato chips with a ranch/sour cream dip. Best poolside snack, ever. 

Question 9: Do you have a pet or pets? If so, what kind and what are their names? 

I have two dogs, both Havanese, named Pip and Obi. They’re 10 and 9 years old and are the silliest little bubbies ever.

Question 10: What are your number one favorite nonfiction and fiction books?

NF: “Bossy Pants” by Tina Fey… gets me every time I listen to it!

F: The Lord of the Rings trilogy. I’m a big Tolkien nut!

Question 11: What’s your favorite beauty product?

Soap? I don’t wear makeup and I rarely do my hair! So soap is a good one, gotta be clean!

Question 12: When were you last embarrassed? What happened?

At our grocery store you can order from the Deli online and you have to enter a name. So to be funny, Ben wrote down “Truck Spank” (an inside joke from a favorite podcast). Anyways, the order wasn’t filled so I had to go up to the counter and ask where the order for “Truck Spank” was…. yea. 

Question 13: If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Coffee?! But that’s pretty much water… so root beer. I love me some root beer. 

Question 14: What’s your favorite movie?

Oh probably Lord of the Rings! I think I like it even more now that I’ve been to New Zealand. 


Question 15: What were you in high school: prom queen, nerd, cheerleader, jock, valedictorian, band geek, loner, artist, prep?

Artist + honors student!

Question 16: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?

Is it weird I love where we live now (Florida)? So it’s hard to imagine living anywhere else. 

Question 17: PC or Mac?

MAC all day, everyday. 

Question 18: Last romantic gesture from a crush, date, boy/girlfriend, spouse?

My husband does this super sweet thing. We run every few days and Ben gets up early with me to go run. Now, I know that doesn’t sound huge, but it is. He hates mornings and prefers to run after dinner… so for him to get up and go with me is really super sweet! Running is really important to me and I’ve had to take a 2 year hiatus because of an injury! He knows how much it means to me that I can run again.


Question 19: Favorite celebrity?

Anthony Bourdain. Love his books and shows, we even saw him live!

Question 20: What blogger do you secretly want be best friends with?

Jessica Swift! I feel like we’d chat a lot, then realize 3 hours slipped away….. 

I’d love it if the following lovelies did this too! If you want…… ! 

1. Sarah Watson

2. Elizabeth Olwen

3. Victoria Johnson

4. Abby <<– from Love of Pattern!
