A little while ago, I got tagged by Shuva Rahim with Accent Photographics to do a blog challenge (originally started by business blogger April Bowles-Olin of Blacksburg Belle) where I can share 20 things you don’t know about me. I don’t know that I have any juicy, deep dark revelations, but hopefully you’ll enjoy getting to know me a little more!

20 things you don't know about me20 Things You Don’t Know About Me

Question 1: How tall are you?

I’m 5 feet tall (5 feet and 1/2 an inch, if you wanna get technical!)

Question 2: Do you have a hidden talent? If so, what?

Hmm, I don’t know if it’s necessarily a “hidden” talent, but I’m a really great singer. I went to Italy and sang for the pope when I was in high school, and I like to think that they didn’t just send me for my pretty face 😉

Question 3: What’s your biggest blog-related pet peeve?

People who don’t use good grammar/punctuation. I know we aren’t all perfect, but make sure you check whether it’s affect or effect (two different things!)

Seriously… buck up buttercup. Nobody likes a crybaby.

Question 5: What’s your favorite song?

That’s so tough because it really depends. But one of my consistent favorites is the instrumental of A Thousand Years, by The Piano Guys (so pretty!).

Question 6: What’s your favorite Etsy shop that isn’t yours?

I don’t shop on Etsy. If I did, I’d be broke.

Question 7: What’s your favorite way to spend your free time when you’re alone?

Reading a good book – currently I’m working my way through the Outlander Series

Question 8: What’s your favorite junk food?

Snickers or Krispy Kreme donuts

I have a little black meow meow named Cupcake and Eric has a dog names Roxie

Question 10: What are your number one favorite nonfiction and fiction books?

Nonfiction: Eat. Pray. Love (can’t even begin to tell you how much this book resonated with me!)

Question 11: What’s your favorite beauty product?

Mantha Lip Shine by C.O. Bigelow – my sisters and I call it lip-crack for a reason!

Question 12: When were you last embarrassed? What happened?

I’m pretty laid back, so it’s actually pretty hard to embarrass me because not a whole lot is worth getting that bent out of shape about.

Is wine an acceptable answer? 🙂

Question 14: What’s your favorite movie?

Brave Heart
Ever After
The Emperors New Groove

Question 15: What were you in high school: prom queen, nerd, cheerleader, jock, valedictorian, band geek, loner, artist, prep?

I was actually home schooled when I was in high school (sshhh, don’t tell anyone)

I’m actually really good with living here in the US, but I LOVE traveling to other countries!

Question 17: PC or Mac?

Mac… all day long

Question 18: Last romantic gesture from a crush, date, boy/girlfriend, spouse?

One of the last romantic things Eric did for me was completely gut and remodel my walk in closet, it was by far one of the best birthday presents!!!

Question 19: Favorite celebrity?

I’ve always had a big crush on Brad Pitt, but I really admire Jennifer Lawrence for her fun-loving spirit and no-nonsense way of dealing with things that don’t matter.

Question 20: What blogger do you secretly want be best friends with?

Sara Burnett with Burnett’s Boards! I had the pleasure of meeting her in Hawaii last year and she was such a sweet, genuine, fun person! I could totally see us being besties, hanging out drinking wine (lots of wine!) and letting the shenanigans adventures ensue!
