{Seven} Questions

When a girl has had a stressful week, and has to blog during her lunch breaks, sometimes a little assistance in topics is necessary. I love that Gentri Lee brought her Seven Questions back - they are always so fun and such a great way to get to know some facts about fellow bloggers that wouldn't usually be discussed!

Now.....onto the funny photo.

Explanation - Seattle Washington for our 1 year anniversary trip. EMP Museum "Horror Film" Exhibit had a "Scream booth" - give your best Horror Film scream, and they will record it and snap a photo - this was our little pride and joy (should I be concerned that my husband has a MUCH higher pitched, emergent scream than I do?)

1. It's the first day of August- Are you savoring the Summer or ready to jump into Fall?

I hail from the Pacific Northwest - I'm usually complaining about the heat. This year, summer started so late (I'm talking like a week ago or so) I'm savoring it...for now. Give me another few weeks, and I'll be ready to start layering the cardigans and scarves.

For now, I'm enjoying the pool days - early morning sprinkler dances with Noah, camping, and the slight tan/burn I have going on (any shade darker than porcelain-white is progress for me!)

2. You need a quick and healthy meal, what do you make?

My go-to healthy meal that is both kid&husband friendly and not too high on the calories, is taco salad. Fresh veggies from the garden, some ground turkey, a little cheese (for them), and salsa makes a great meal!

3. You're at the mall, how do you shop?

The nearest mall is 30 miles away - I don't get over there too often. But when I do - it's an event. I try and hit just about every store (we don't have most of the same stores in our town), and turn it into a day trip!
No mall trip is complete without a mall pretzel with cheese and a mini-splurge for some cute Victoria Secret necessities.

4. Would you rather buy a new house or renovate an old one?

Can I have the best of both worlds? The charm of an older home (I'm a sucker for archways, hidden closets, and built in shelving), with the updates and technology of a new home?

I think if money were not an issue, I would love to own a historic home, but renovate it to be energy efficient and up to date on all of the plumbing, wiring, etc.

5. Long hair or short hair?

I've gone through many phases. As a young girl, I had long straight hair - passed my butt.
I've gone back and forth - from dark to light, short to dark, red to purple.
Now I'm in the process of growing it out - and keeping it blonde.
I'm a sucker for a great A-line. I loved my haircut back then.
But for now, I'm in the midst of another hair "phase" - we'll see how long this one of growing it out and keeping it blonde goes!

6. Who is your oldest (not by age) friend?

My friend Kim and I have been friends since Middle school.
We have had our ups and downs - a real Blair and Serena friendship at times (Gossip Girl anyone) - BUT we've always been there for each other - and I cherish her friendship.

7. What is your favorite blog- currently?

I love the confidence of Cece of "TheBigGirlBlog", the grace of Dana from "The Wonder Forest", and the humor that is "BundledPanties". Each of them wonderful in a different way, I could (and do) read them almost everyday!

  1. After reading your 7 Questions... I feel like we have so much in common. (Does that mean I'm a fathead by assuming so? Ya' know... like, gosh she's so awesome and I'm so awesome, let's be friends)All your hair phases are too cute and taco salad sounds super yummy right now.

  2. Ok. You have four weeks, then it's time for fall! Ok?? haha! Jk, I'm not through with Summer either. :)
    So glad you participated, Jeni!
