20 Questions Tuesday


Tuesday, August 25, 2015

After reading one of my favorite blogs (September Farm) yesterday, I decided to copy/steal borrow the subject of her post.

A game of 20 questions. And I figured now is as good of a time as any other since I have some new readers (thanks by the way!).

1. FAVORITE FOOD?
Italian. I love pasta and pizza. I could live on those every single day, but I would be 400 pounds if I did. My cousin makes the BEST meatballs EVER. Mouth watering, moist (such a gross word) and flavorful. Get in my belly. Oh that's right, they were Sunday night (family dinner).

2. FLIP FLOPS or HIGH HEELS?
A few years ago I would have told you high heels. I love me some high heels, but now that I am a mommy, wearing high heels isn't that practical. I usually chose flats, boots or sandals. But I do still covet high heels and slap them on for special occasions (like the wedding I was in on Saturday).

3.  FAVORITE PLACES TO SHOP...FOR ME!
J Crew, Banana Republic and Nordstrom.

4. STANDARD COFFEE ORDER?
The largest vanilla latte. But sadly, we are cutting back on going out for coffee, so on weekdays I get french pressed coffee with some half and half made by myself or my husband (oh the horror, right?).

5. ROAD TRIP MUST HAVE SNACK?
Beef jerky. Hot and sweet or teriyaki. Best snack ever.

6. DIY or HIRE IT OUT?
I love DIY projects, but sometimes you end up spending more time, effort and money to DIY. So some crafts (like wedding stuff, some household items, some baby stuff, etc) I will DIY and the big stuff, I hire out (like our upcoming kitchen remodel).

7. TOP 5 TV SHOWS?
Modern Family, Grey's Anatomy, Orange is the New Black, Breaking Bad, Gossip Girl

8. FAVORITE BOOK?
This one is hard because I love reading on my kindle app, but don't get to do it as often now since I have two little ones running around.

9. FAVORITE FORM OF EXERCISE?
Cardio. I like lifting weights, but there is nothing like running (especially outside), biking or the eliptical to burn all that Italian food off.

10. HOW TALL ARE YOU?
Almost 5'9"

11. DO YOU TRY SOMETHING NEW AT RESTAURANTS OR STICK TO YOUR FAVORITES?
I stick to my favorites a lot, but I am willing to branch out. Plus my husband always makes me try new things at places like Thai, Indian, etc.

12. ONE MAKEUP ITEM YOU CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT?
Mascara. I am not blessed with the longest eyelashes. I feel naked without it. But my husband on the other hand, has long gorgeous lashes. Hopefully our girls get his lashes.

13. WHAT'S ON YOUR NIGHTSTAND?
Lamp, picture from our wedding, baby monitor, ring box.

14. ONE THING MOTHERHOOD HAS TAUGHT YOU?
One that, that's it? Geez it has taught me a lot about myself. Patience and chores can wait. It is best to soak up all the baby snuggles you can get because soon they won't want to cuddle. And having two babies, I have learned a bit about patience. It is still a work in progress, but definitely a must with two.

15. MUSIC THAT REMINDS YOU OF HIGH SCHOOL?
Ha. Punk music. I recently put some of my favorite punk bands into my pandora stations and my husband wasn't so sure what to think. He was into hip hop when he was in high school and I loved the punk music. Makes for an interesting road trip.

16. IF YOU COULD LIVE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD OTHER THAN YOUR CURRENT CITY, WHERE?
Again, so many choices. I would love Oregon for the West Coast, New York for the East Coast, Florida for the South and Texas for the mid-South. And as for out of country, some place in Europe.

17. TELL US SOMETHING ABOUT YOU WE MIGHT NOT KNOW
I am deathly afraid of sharks, but find them so fascinating that I often google them. Example: I google great white shark attack videos at least a couple times a year (weird and gross I know). Growing up I wanted to be a doctor or nurse, and I still want to be a nurse. I constantly kick myself in the butt that I chose IT instead of nursing (technology always wins). I have had eight surgeries and those don't include mole removals (one of mine was really bad and required a lot of stitches).

18. WEBSITES YOU READ // BROWSE (besides blogs)
Tahoe Unveiled, Buzzfeed, Perez Hilton (love celebrity gossip), Instagram, Drudge Report

19. MORNING PERSON or NIGHT OWL?
I am becoming more and more of a morning person. I like to get up early (due to my children) and get a lot done during the early morning hours. But I used to be a night owl. Again, children change that.

20. WHAT'S YOUR BEST FEATURE?
My butt. I used to have an awesome bubble butt. Now it isn't quite as lovely after having children, but I am getting it back. Love glut exercises and having a nice tight butt.

  2. What a fun post! I love reading survey-type posts because you get to learn random things about people! I am with you on the mascara too. My eyes disappear without it because they are so light :( I thought about being a nurse too... I always wonder if that would have been a better career field.

    1. I think being a nurse would be so rewarding. I just didn't realize how much it meant to me until I had my babies and have had 2 surgeries since then. Nurses are amazing and helped me more than I ever could have imagined. Plus they took care of our girls for 26 and 27 days.

  3. I am a huge pasta and pizza fan. We sometimes have pizza twice in one week, and I have no problem with that. Haha. I have two little ones as well and I agree completely... Everyday I remind myself enjoy the snuggles, leave the chores and mess for later. It's really hard for me because I like everything to be tidy and in its place! But I am getting better. :) Glad to have found your blog!

    1. I have no problem with having pizza multiple times per week. I told my husband that we must have it this week (craving it). I think I like pizza way more than he does haha. I am a neat freak (or I used to be) and it is hard to let the chores go. But yesterday I spent so much time working on teaching the girls to sit up and I was so proud of their progress. Way better than dusting the house!

      And thank you for your kind words. I will definitely check out your blog!
