I'm so sorry ya'll. I missed Thursday Things yesterday, and today - I'm not really going to be able to come up with much to say to introduce our Friday Favorite. We are dealing with epic cold bugs over here... I've got two sick babies and a sick set of parents to go along with them. So bare with me, and enjoy reading up about this sweet blogger, and her life. I know you'll enjoy reading about her adventures as much as I do.
1) Tell us a little bit about yourself:
I’m a quirky 30 year-old who is still dreaming of what I want to do when I grow up. Until I figure it out, though, I’m putting my newly earned law degree to use. I am head over heels in love with my two kitty boys and proudly hang stockings embroidered with their names on the fireplace at Christmastime. I love to do the dishes and always have. I am not a sweets person but do have soft spot for cupcakes. I have no shame in admitting that I am obsessed with all things vampire and have declared Robert Pattinson to be my movie star husband. However, during football season, my wedded affection belongs to Green Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, known just as “the hubs.”
2) Tell us your mission/goal for your blog:
The best thing about my blog is I have no expectations. I just to love to write and find it fascinating that I’ve been able to capture, in print, at least a part of my story.
3) Tell us about your favorite post or your best inspiration:
I don’t know if I have a favorite post… but my best inspiration is definitely Hann. If you haven’t been around my part of bloggie world, you might not know what a “Hann” is- but she’s pretty much my twin separated at birth. Our paths crossed in law school and she’s been “my person” ever since. We also have an amazing group of friends and although we’re separated by miles now, they continue to be my inspiration… not just for the blog, but in life.
4) Tell us one thing you can’t live without: (this could be animal, vegetable, or mineral – it’s up to you)
Just one thing?!?! It’s a tie… Hann and Carl. Best friend/future real-life hubs. I need them both.
5) Your favorite book, and why:
Ummm… duh. The Twilight Series. Because I am a tween stuck in the body of a 30 year old clearly. And perhaps Harry Potter. I just started reading them (don’t judge- I’ve had a busy couple of years) and cannot get enough. Vamps and wizards. Perfection.
6) Your favorite movie, and why:
I won’t say Twilight series since I just said that for favorite book, but I do love them. It depends- during Christmas season, it’s Love Actually. I love everything about. I love Hugh Grant’s monologue in the beginning, I love the humor, I love the moment when Sam finally gets the girl and is on the top of the world… I love all the love in it. To me that’s the best and most magical part of the Christmas season- love actually is all around. So when it’s not Christmastime, I think I would have to say Sweet Home Alabama. I could (and do) watch it over and over and over again. I can’t even put my finger on what the draw is but I love it. Philadelphia is another all-time favorite. Think it might be why I thought I could become a lawyer and change the world.
7) Tell us something unique/funny/interesting about you:
I was adopted when I was 3 months old. I have a light brown birthmark near my ribs and when I was little and asked my mom why I had it, she told me someone spilled chocolate milk on me. Funny, cuz I’m allergic to chocolate. I don’t eat the ends of certain things and I prefer it if different foods didn’t touch on my plate. I love Starbucks coffee but only buy decaf. I will only use OPI nail polish and if I could afford it, I would get a pedicure every single week.
8) Tell us how we can find you to read for ourselves: (your blog address)
