What About Me?

I thought it would be fun to do some Q&A posts occasionally on the blog.  Having a blog is about as narcissistic as it gets...And I am OK with that! 

1. What is your eye color?


They change a little here and there.  Sometimes they are bright blue, sometimes they are subtle and almost gray.

2. Favorite Color?

My favorite colors tend to rotate.  In the spring and summer I really love mint, turquoise and cerulean.  Basically blues and greens.  In the fall I love navy and burnt orange (partly due to football season and cheering on my tigers.)  In the winter months I really love gray and cream colors.


3. What is the furthest you've ever been from home?

Europe.  I have been to France, Italy, Czech Republic, Hungary and Austria.  They are all beautiful countries.

4. What is the last thing your purchased?

Coffee from Starbucks.  Working in higher education means there is a Starbucks at the library...which happens to be right next to my building.  It's a problem.

5. Favorite smells?

I normally love the super rich maple buttercream smells during the fall, but I recently went to Bath & Body Works and, for the sake of my Husband, smelled the more masculine and clean scents they offer and have fallen in love!  Leather, Mahogany Teakwood, Leaves and Sweater Weather are all amazing!  Of course another household favorite for all seasons is Eucalyptus Mint.  This scent does not seem to bother even those sensitive to strong smells.


6. When was the last time you cried?

I am not a huge crier.  Especially in front of people.  I remember one time my Husband actually asked me "Why don't you cry more?"  HA!  I did cry last week.  It was just out of frustration in regards to a personal matter that our family has been dealing with.

7. Any magazine subscriptions?

I used to have subscriptions to Country Living, Southern Living, Better Homes & Gardens, Cosmo and probably 10 others...then I had a kid and had no time to read...any time I had to myself, I was sleeping! 

Now we only have two: Garden & Gun and National Geographic Kids.  I highly recommend both of them!


8. Do you collect anything?

I have started a very inconvenient collection of cake stands.  I love them.  I have 5 or 6, but am constantly keeping my eye open for others that are unique.  They are super awkward to store and tend to break easy, so Hubs is not too excited about the growing collection.

9. Tattoos?

I have two.  They are tiny and honestly I kind of regret them.  They were mainly done out of rebellion.  I went through a phase of breaking every possible rule my parents had me follow for the first 18 years of my life.  I do want more tattoos, but I want to make sure I put a lot of thought into what I want and the meaning behind them...instead of getting symbols slapped on me like a stereotypical, rebellious 18 year old!  What a cliche!  Oh well, we live and learn...

10. Favorite way to travel?

In a car with someone else driving so I can sleep the whole way there...or on a plane where I can sleep.  Or a bus where I can sleep...I guess you get my drift...Any form of travel is great, so long as I can sleep!!!

I hope y'all had a great weekend!  Good luck with your Monday!
