a little q & a

May 21, 2014


1. What has been your most favorite vacation to date?

Our honeymoon to Kauai was just amazing and a true vacation.

2. Do you prefer big city life, suburban life, or a life in the country?

I am most acquainted with suburban life, which I am a fan of in general because you have the conveniences of a city nearby but it’s more affordable, the schools are better (usually), and there is more space. I’ve never truly lived in the heart of a big city but I can imagine that it would have some perks like things being within walking distance and having more character. I also haven’t technically experienced country life, but I did go to college in a town of 3,000 people surrounded by farmland, and I really liked small town life. I guess I can adapt anywhere. :)

3. What is your favorite type/genre of food?

Italian food is so good but so rich! And Tex-Mex…mmm. I also love a good sandwich.

4. How would you typically dress yourself for a weekend night out?

We are not fancy, so probably something like skinny jeans, sandals, and a flowy top.

5. Do you like to wear accessories?  If yes, what are your go-to accessories?

Not really. I wear stud earrings every day though, and I love delicate necklaces.

6. How do you typically fix your hair? (Blow dry and straighten/curl? Air dry? Wash and go?)

I wash it every few days at night and let it air dry. For work I just put it in a ponytail or bun. Otherwise I’ll just leave it down (I have very straight hair that doesn’t do well with styling so I just make sure to get a cut that flatters it without much work). Sometimes I’ll straighten it if there are weird kinks.

7. What make up do you wear on a daily basis? Do you have a preferred brand of cosmetics?

I wear mineral foundation, blush, and mascara. That’s it. I love Bare Minerals.

8. What is your preferred workout?  (Gym? Outdoor running? Yoga? Group classes? None? Etc…?)

I’m still figuring out what is going to work for me on a long-term basis, but right now running feels good. I loooove in-person yoga classes but can’t afford them. I’m excited about the versatility of a gym though. Haven’t tried many group classes.

9. Where is your favorite place to shop online?


10. Do you enjoy entertaining guests in your home or would you prefer to be a guest and leave the hostessing to someone else?

I like having people over, but I’m not super confident in my hostessing skills yet so I usually prefer to be a guest. :)

11. What quality do you really value in your significant other?

There are too many awesome things about David to list here, but I want to mention that I really appreciate how smart, funny, and communicative he is. That means I am never bored with him around, and I always know what he’s feeling!

  1. 1

    From Melissa:

    Fun! I would’ve answered so many of these the same way! My favorite vacation was also our honeymoon, I love to shop at Amazon, & I too have a fairly simple makeup/hair/getting dressed routine!

  2. 2

    From Nora:

    I look forward to answering these questions; I’ll put mine up on Friday :)

    I wish my hair were wash & go. It’s so thick I have to do something to it: straighten, scrunch or at least throw it up in a ponytail.

  3. 3

    From Sarah @ Beauty School Dropout:

    Thanks for tagging me! I am jealous of you being able to wear a ponytail to work! Although if I didn’t have to put myself together for work I would look so raggedy all the time. On Saturdays I barely get out of my pjs!

  4. 4

    From Stephany:

    Ooh, yay! I can’t wait to complete this. :) I would give the exact same answer for #4. I am SO not fancy, and anything that requires more than skinny jeans and a nice top is too much for me. I have to dress nice for work, so I like to dress down on weekends!

    From Dave:

    Fun! Thanks for sharing.
