2. I could live in sweat pants and uggs.
3. I hate commuting to work but getting to see my family every day makes it worth it.
4. I never wanted to be that girl who NEEDED her boyfriend, and it took me a really long time to admit it to myself, but I do.  I couldn't imagine life without him.

Yesi's Questions:

1. If you could pick your dream job, what would it be? Why?
well I'm hoping it is going to be the job I just got!  but I think that my ultimate job would be running my own company.  something crafty and creative.  something where I design and/or make the products.  
2. What is your favorite song at this very moment?
we are never ever getting back together by Taylor Swift.  love Taylor but I especially love this song because every time it comes on the radio my sister and I belt it out like crazy people.
3. What would you like for Christmas?
hair extensions.  but I don't know if I will be able to wait that long for them.  might have to get them as an early present for myself.  I can't really think of anything else.  yarn, or gift certificates, or money!
4. (I really liked this question so I am including it.) 3. What blog(s) or blogger(s) inspire you?
well, obviously the ones that I nominate!  but I think the first blog I read and instantly fell in love with was Linny's Vault.  she's freaking hilarious and right from the start I felt like she gave a shit about my comments or tweets I sent her.  she never responded with the generic 'thanks for the comment!' but actually had something legit to say.
Tamara is also another of my faves.  she's so down to earth and again I felt like I was talking to a real person!
Clare and Katrin are more inspirations for sure.  Clare is so cute and makes me want to cook/eat/try new things and Katrin is just a sweetheart!  always has the nicest things to say!
5. What is your favorite season? Why?
summer through and through.  I live on an island so being 5 minutes from a beach at all times is pretty amazing, especially when it's 30 degrees out.
6. Who is your favorite (Hottest) actor that you are in love with now? Or Actress?
hmm.  love Ian Somerhalder or Paul Wesley.  dreamy.
7. Why did you begin blogging?
I've been reading blogs and watching YouTube videos for as long as I can remember and I've always wanted to have my own blog or channel and since I'm too much of a chicken to go in front of a camera every day I figured this would be a good direction! 
8. If you can travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
south.  I want to go to a resort somewheres and just lay on the beach for a week and drink and eat.
9. What is your favorite thing about yourself now?
I guess my hair?  I've been going to an actual hair dresser lately and have been putting bits of blond in it and am lovin it.
10. Who is your favorite Disney Character? Who is your least Favorite? Why?
growing up Goofy was my go to guy.  I bought a huge stuffed Goofy when we went on a family vacay to Disney land when I was little.
11. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
hopefully moving up the business chain at my new job! likely living in the city, hopefully with a couple for neices and nephews and maybe even a ring on my finger. who knows!

  1. Oh em gee, you totally rock. I've never even heard of that award, so you Basically made my entire year. :)

  2. This is so awesome! Thank you so much

  3. Thanks so much for awarding me! :) I will for sure be answering your questions this week!

  4. thanks so much! loved your answers

  5. Aww, thank you so much, sweetie! I can't tell you what this means to me! :) Thank you thank you thank you! You are so wonderful and I love reading your blog! And I can't wait to answer your questions!
    It was so great to learn more about you!

  6. Thank you! I've been nominated for the liebster award multiple times but you're sweet! Now following your blog.

  7. i love tv too, would like to travel but am not a risk taker either!

  8. I swear I'm not just saying this because you totally tooted my horn big time but I can SO relate to #3-6 of your random facts.

    Commuting is the freakin' worst but the fact that my grandparents & brother live in the city where I work kind of make it better cause I get to see them a lot. Dude, I swore up & down that I'd never ever be that girl that needs a man to be around. Swore. And guess what, I'm totally that girl. I love my husband, could definitely live without him but never want to. Damn those fellas for being so damn cute & reeling us in.

    When I was 16 I told my mom I was going to jump on a train & travel the U.S. for a year, haha. Yeah, that totally didnt happen because I watched a special on serial killers & then realized I was probably going to have to prostitute myself for food. Staying put was probably a good idea haha.

    1. I'm officially joining the "wish I didn't but totally need my man" club. *sigh*

      Good call on the train. It's like the #1 mode of transport for serial killers on the lam. If you'd gone that route and ended up in a ditch I might never have "met" you, and then who would I complain to all the time?? Hmmm??

  9. Aw, you're too sweet! Thank you SO MUCH for the nomination! I'm heading out on vacation and am in crazy packing/cleaning/errand mode, so I'm not sure if I'll have time to respond with a post before I go (though I will try!) If I don't, please know that it's at the top of my to-do list when I come back and I am totally honoured! You ROCK!

  10. Such a cool shout out! And I'm with you on #1 - I hate people touching my neck, too. I mean, why would they even do that? Have to check out some of the blogs you nominated!

  11. I understand what you mean about #4 - I was hurt by a few guys (and friends), and I didn't want to have to depend on one. But my husband was so patient with my insecurities from past problems. Now I don't mind admitting that I need him.
