Some Q & A's


I've had a few lovely bloggers nominate me for Liebster awards lately, and I thought I would take the time to answer some of their questions. I've gathered up some of the good ones, and here are some random and weird facts about me.

What is your favourite make-up item? black mascara

Favourite TV show? Right now I'm watching The Good Wife and I love it! I've just started season 3.

Baking or Cooking? Baking 100%!! I like the idea of cooking healthy meals for my family, but I don't actually enjoy the cooking process. I don't mind it... it's just not something I really enjoy. Baking, on the other hand, is something that I crave. I probably use my Kitchenaid mixer 4 or 5 times a week. 

Final thing you do before going to bed? read something. Sometimes it's a book, sometimes a magazine or newspaper article, 

Early bird or night owl? My husband would complain that I am a total early bird! He wishes I would lie in bed with him longer in the mornings, but once I'm up I like to get up and get going.

What is your go-to outfit? I'd have to say button-down shirts. I love collars, so I alternate between button-downs with leggings, shirt-dresses, and button-downs with bright coloured sweaters. 

What types of blogs do you follow and why? I like to read blogs for inspiration, so I have a collection of faves. I enjoy some day-to-day fashion/mommy blogs like The Student's Wife. I like blogs that are well-written and enjoyable to read, like Its the Little ThingsLittle Almanac, and Story of my Life. And I like design inspired blogs, such as House of Earnest and The Marion House Book

What place would you most like to visit? At the top of my list right now is Prague. But I'd pretty much go anywhere...

What are some things your dream house would have? NO MICE! I saw another one today so I am cowering on the couch tonight... afraid to open any drawers or cupboards. In addition to that my dream house would have a lot of natural light, wood floors, big windows, a large closet and an ensuite. But it's tough to find large closets and ensuites in older character homes, which I love, so I might be willing to compromise on that one. 

That's it! A few random facts about moi. Thank you so very much Katie and Kaylynn for asking me these questions.

Hi Erika, thanks for stopping by my blog with your lovely comment. I don't know if I should tell you this, but I had a mouse before and they don't mind climbing on the couch. I found out the hard way (it ran along the back behind my head and I freaked!) I had 4 cats at the time, I think they were friends with the darn mouse.
