I’m sure you’ve seen these posts floating around and I’m joining in on the fun! Nicole was kind enough to tag me with these questions and I figure, who doesn’t want to know more about me?!
What is your favorite thing about where you live?
I’ve actually lived in Chicago (or the surrounding areas) for as long as I can remember, and I must admit, I’m absolutely obsessed with this city. However, I love nothing more than traveling, and a part of my brain knows that I should probably try living somewhere else for some new adventures and scenery. However, I just can’t convince myself of really good reasons to leave! Sure our winters are rough and our summers are humid, but there are a bijillion things to do in this city, the people are fairly friendly, our loved ones live an easy driving distance away from us, and there are plenty of opportunities to work. Plus, this city is beautiful and has some seriously excellent food.
What are three things that you’re grateful for?
Right now I’m grateful for loved ones, Moscato, and the countless opportunities in my life.
What does your ideal day look like?
I’m not exactly sure how to answer this one! I think my ideal day would involve waking up (early), drinking coffee with the Husband, working out, exploring a new place, learning something new, and spending time with loved ones over a cocktail (or two).
What is the story behind your blog name?
I explain this in more detail here, but basically the Husband and I met online and our first date involved a concert in the park and then dinner and drinks at a bar/restaurant downtown. At dinner I drank two martinis and told the Husband waaaaaaay too much about my sexual history myself. Well, it all worked out and we ended up dating, moving in together, getting engaged, and getting married! But, I still see those two drinks as the start of it all.
What is one thing that you’d like to learn?
I’d love to learn how to take SPECTACULAR pictures. But honestly, I just don’t put in the time with my DSLR, so I have no one to blame but myself on this one!
When are you ‘at your best’?
I definitely feel best after I workout and drink a bit of caffeine! If my morning starts off with those two things, it’s going to be a GREAT day. I’m also at my best when I’m traveling and getting away from my ‘normal’ life. A bit of space can do wonders for my mentality and stress levels!
I would love to know more about EVERYONE! I can’t keep track of who has already been tagged, so I’ll just post a few questions and if you need some blog material (I love these Q&A posts), feel free to use them (just let me know so I can be sure to read your answers)! OR what would be even better, would be if you could pick a few of these and answer them in the comments! OK, perfect!
