One of the best things about blogging is the virtual community that results. I feel like I have so many blends (blog friends)! So when Amy from, The Scene From Me, tagged me for a little “get to know you” survey, I thought, how fun!
Here goes nuthin’ :D
If you were stranded on a deserted island and could only have 3 items, what would they be?
My pets (because I refuse to choose), my Kindle, several cases of vino ;)
If you had to only eat one food item for the rest of your life what would it be?
Burrito (with pizza a close second) — you can jazz it up a million different ways!
Are any of the walls in your house painted your favorite color?
One of our walls is a deep mossy green, which I really like. I can’t say I have a favorite color.
Would you rather have a piece pie, a cupcake, a cookie, a bar or a piece of cake on your birthday?
Well pumpkin pie ranks number 1 in my book! Next would be an angel food cake :)
How much time do you spend blogging every day (that includes reading and commenting on other blogs)?
That’s tough because I multitask like no one’s business! I’ll read a blog for a minute, then work for 30 minutes, all day. In total, I’m guessing an hour?
If you could choose to live on a beach, in the mountains, in the woods or in a big city which would it be?
I think I’d used to say beach, but I lived a few blocks from the ocean in LA and I still left. I’m dying for big city life (40 min to SF is not close enough!)
Who is your favorite band/musician from your teenage years?
I’ll list a couple: DMB, Jewel, Shai
What is one of your favorite smells?
I’m a sucker for vanilla and cinnamon
If you could have any job in the world, what would your dream job be?
To do philanthropy event planning for animal shelters
What is one of your worse personality traits?
Impatient! Big time. I’m working on it though :P
Okay so now I think I’m supposed to come up with 10 questions and tag some people as well. Here are my questions:
- How many pairs of shoes do you own? Is there an upper limit that is too many?
- How have you influenced your significant other’s eating habits?
- Have you ever had a “fat kid moment”? What did you
- What is your favorite chain restaurant?
- Who was/is the biggest influence in your cooking and/or baking?
- Who is your celebrity crush?
- What is one of the best compliments you’ve ever received?
- Have you ever tried Bikram? If not, would you?
- What 3 things are you most thankful for?
- What European city would you most like to live in? Why?
I’d like to hear from all of you too!
What is your favorite chain restaurant? Mine is probably Cheesecake Factory because I love all the options. Fave dishes are the Incredible Eggplant Sandwich (sans the eggplant), fried macaroni and cheese balls (YUM!), and their strawberry shortcake.
Who was/is your biggest influence on cooking / baking? My Mom..haha Momo, are you reading this? I’d say my Grandma Jean. I loved her cinnamon rolls and her meringues – she inspired me to bake!
What European city would you most like to live in? Why? So difficult to pick just one. But I’d say first Paris, then Rome, then Madrid (all big cities, with great food, culture, architecture, history, etc.)
