48 Questions

Well, I wanted to do an outfit post today, but it is wet and gloomy and cold out, so instead I’m stealing this 48 Questions thing from Liz’s blog. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m also guest blogging today over at The Streeters Unlimited, with 5 Tips for a More User-Friendly Blog. Check it out.

Other News

1. What time did you get up this morning? I physically got out of bed about 9am. But I’d been awake for awhile. Crazy thunderstorm most of the night + puppy scared of thunder = not all that much sleep.

2. How do you like your steak? Medium. Juicy pink, but not red.

3. What was the last film you saw at the cinema? Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

4. What is your favorite TV show? I really like Castle. White Collar is a close second. Project Runway is also up there. There’s lots, really. Our DVR is always full.

5. If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be? Australia. I considered not coming back when I did my study abroad over there, but expensive plane tickets would’ve made visiting my family next to impossible.

6. What did you have for breakfast? Sweet tea and a granola bar.

7. What is your favorite food? I love Italian food. I could probably live off of pasta. Give me a good bolognese sauce over noodles, with some garlic bread on the side, and I’m a happy gal.

8. Foods you dislike? Mushrooms. Really spicy food. Sushi.

21. Favorite baby/kids products? No idea, since I don’t have kids, but I guess I’ll go with books.

22. People watcher? Oh yeah. A chunk of our conversation on date night is always dedicated to observations on other people out at the restaurant.

23. Are you a morning or night person? Such a night owl. Morning is not my friend.

24. Do you have any pets? Yup. Our dog, Sienna. A lab-pitbull mix. My little furkid.

25. Any new and exciting news you’d like to share? Yes! If you didn’t see yesterday’s blog post, I’m finally getting a real camera!

28. Are you a cat or dog person? Both. I was traditionally very much a cat person, but I have become a dog person since Ian is allergic to cats and we got Sienna. Totally a dog mama now.

29. Are you married? Nope. Been with Ian for going on 3 years, though. And we live together. And we’re technically ‘domestic partners’ for the purposes of health insurance, etc.
