Twenty Questions

It has been SO long since I’ve blogged, and it would be an understatement to say that I’ve really missed it and all of you. Garter sales have been out~of~control lately, which is great for business, but means I have little to no time to do anything else in the evenings and on the weekend. And I have a hard time letting myself blog when I don’t have time to do a lot of blog reading and commenting. I don’t see that sales will be slowing down anytime in the future, so for now, I’ll just blog and comment when I can. :o)

Kenz @ All the Weigh {who I really adore by the way} did this little 20 questions meme this morning. Seemed like a great way for me to get in a post, so here we go!

1) What is one of your favorite ways to spend a Saturday? I love to get up early and go hiking with Nate. Our hikes are usually between 3 and 5 miles, which takes between 2 and 4 hours, depending on the intensity of the hike. That much physical activity usually means I can eat whatever I want for dinner Saturday night guilt~free, which is pretty fabulous in my book.
2) List your top three favorite TV shows... Big Love, The Biggest Loser, and Castle

3) Would you rather be in pictures or take them? I’d rather be in them, but I really wish I could figure out how to keep my eyes open when the flash goes off…

4) Why do you blog? Because I love to write, and I love making connections with women all over the country through this wonderful little technological advancement we call the World Wide Web.

5) Share five websites that you visit everyday..., Etsy, Facebook, Google, and PayPal {to print out shipping labels for garter orders and transfer $ to my business checking account}

6) If you could have lunch with one person from your Twitter list who would it be? Mrs Soup. She is my best online friend.

7) List a few of your favorite snacks... Skinny Cow ice cream cones, pretzels, baby carrots, mandarin oranges

8) Do you have a pet? If so, what kind? Yes, I have a beautiful little Papillon named Daisy. She’ll be one next month and I love her more than I ever thought was possible. She is T~R~O~U~B~L~E most of the time, but we absolutely adore her.

9) Which three material possessions would you struggle to live without? My cell phone, my iPod, and my computer

10) What's your favorite drink? Alcoholic: Lemon Drops; Non-alcoholic: Cherry Pomegranate Crystal Light

11) Do you enjoy cooking? Nope, not so much. My idea of cooking is turning the oven to 475 and throwing in a pizza made on a whole~wheat pita. Pretty yummy and low in calories. And it only takes six minutes to cook!

12) Do you have children? Not yet. Someday I hope. Actually someday soon, hopefully. I would love to have two children by the time I’m 35, and I’ll be 30 in May, so we’d better get started soon!

13) What are your favorite hobbies? Sewing, crocheting, reading, spending time with my sweetie, walking Daisy

14) Would you consider yourself to be shy or outgoing? Depends on the environment, but I’d have to say I probably tend to be more shy than outgoing.

15) If you could change one thing about yourself, what would you change? I wouldn’t mind being a little bit taller so I could wear ballet flats without my legs looking 2 inches long. I almost always wear heels to add whatever height I can to my 5’ frame.

16) Who is your favorite actor/actress? Right now I have a bit of a crush on Zachary Quinto from Heroes and Star Trek

17) What's the silliest thing you've done this week? I left a garter set halfway boxed up on the floor of my sewing room. {It was wrapped in tissue paper but the box hadn’t been taped shut.} Daisy managed to push the door of the sewing room open and found one of the garters, which had marabou feathers on it, and took her new find into our bedroom where she proceeded to chew all the feathers off. I should have known better and am kicking myself because now I have to redo the bow and feathers.

18) Do you live near your family or far from them? Close to immediate family, but pretty far away from all extended family. Nate and I see both sides of our immediate family on a weekly basis, and he sees my dad every day at work :o)

19) List three of your talents... sewing, singing, crocheting

20) What is your greatest attribute? My passion. I am a very passionate person, and have a tendency to immerse myself whole~heartedly into anything I feel strongly about. This is not always an attribute though, as it sometimes gives me tunnel vision.

I would love to hear your responses to these questions!

Happy Thursday!
