The 4-1-1!

I have been a bad blogger lately. As if I don't have many of you lovely followers anymore I am sure ;), but I have been SUPER busy lately with my new job. I never do a late post, but I have to stay up late to get used to my new hours (4pm-1am, but I have inventory 6pm-3am tomorrow today); more on that later. Anyway, I found this awesome blog hop thanks to the lovely Ashley! This was from Tuesday, but I haven't had a chance to blog this week!

1. How long have you been blogging? And what got you started on blogging? Has your blog changed? I started back in 2010 to help document my pregnancy and my son's life; a baby book as you would say. It has definitely changed. I changed the name and it developed into not only a blog about my son, but a blog about me, my marriage, my son, my friends, recipes, couponing, and everything else that goes through my head.
2. Did you go to college? If so where, and what did you study?

I went to South Puget Sound Community College here in Olympia. I got my generaly AA degree, so I studied everything. Mostly arts and psychology it seemed like ha; those were my favorite classes.

3. Where have you traveled?

I haven't had the chance to travel anywhere yet. I have only been to a couple different states and Vancouver, BC once on a band trip in high school. I am determined to visit Europe one day!

4. If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you would buy?

I would buy a house and a different car; probably a crossover (as much as I love my car). I would also probably give some to my dad!

5. What are your 3 biggest pet peeves?

  • Loud chewing; food or gum, it's all annoying to me. Learn some manners!
  • Uneven numbers on the radio or tv; more OCD haha.
  • People who butt into others conversations when they have no idea.
6. What is your favorite movie?
That is a very hard choice. One of the newest would be 21 Jump Street. I need to buy that eventually, but I haven't laughed that hard in a while! I also love Superbad; never gets old!

7. What is your drink of choice; wine, beer, or liquor. Or Water, Soda, Tea?

I love water and tea, so one of those for sure. I love wine and all that, but only on occasion. 

8. What is something you enjoy to do when you have me time?

Just sit and relax; especially lately. It seems like I am always going, going, going. To just sit there and watch tv or go on the computer is plenty for me. I love to read, but I am the type who reads a good book and has to finish it right then and there. Having Liam, it's hard to do that so I haven't even read lately; sad day!

9. If you could have a $10,000 shopping spree to one store, which store would it be?

Clothes wise, Maurices! It's my new favorite store for sure. It's not new, but it's new in our mall and I love all their clothes.

10. Share with us an embarrassing moment of your past? Or present.

 I honestly have no idea. Moments like that happen to me constantly though.

11. What day would you love to relive again?

That is an obvious answer; Liam's birth! I was so happy and just glad he was there. I would give anything to relive that moment. 

12. If your life was turned into a movie... what actor would play you?

Zooey Deschanel. I absolutely love her as an actor. She's quirky, funny, serious, and dorky. I love her rolls and I think she would be perfect.  

13. What are the jobs you had in high school/college/the early years?

I actually haven't worked much at all. Aside from now, I had a job working seasonal at Lane Bryant until that store closed while I was in collage. 

14. Show us a picture from high school or college.

 This was on of my favorite moments from high school. It was our senior year and we were taking pictures for something in digital photography. It shows one of the many random funny moments my friend, Faith and I had. I miss those days!

15. If you could travel
anywhere in the world, all expenses paid, where would you go?
Europe, no doubt! Now, where in Europe I have no idea. I'd love to go to France, England, Spain, Ireland... all over! 

16. Show us the most current picture of you or you, or your family, or anything of meaning to you. 

These two definitely are meaningful! This was just a couple weeks ago! One of my favorite pictures of them.

17. Where do you see your life 5 years from now?

Happy as ever. Maybe Liam will have a little brother or sister by then, we shall see! I hope to see us happily as a family in a house. Who knows what the future will hold.


  1. I want to do this survey, too! So you actually like drinking water? Whaaaat? I don't drink water until I feel like I'm dehydrating to death! haha

    I've seen a Maurice's store in Jacksonville, but I've never gone it. My favorite store is Forever21!

    1. Haha sometimes I get bored and HAVE to have flavored water, but I do like it. I just don't always drink enough lol. Oh I like Forever 21 too!

  2. Congratulations! I nominated you for the Liebster Blog Award. Find out what to do next @
