Thirteen Things, Five Things & a Giveaway!

20 August 2013

I love the opportunity to share myself with you and was stoked with my girl Chelsey @ Patti Cake and my girl Amanda @ Manda Loves linked me up on two posts of 13 and 5 questions all about my favorites. To me, these types of posts take me back to my early emailing days. Do you remember those questions:  What is your favorite color? What song are you listening to right now? How many kids do you want to have? etc. Then you would have to forward it to 10 people or you'd have back luck? Well, I'm not about to have bad luck so here are my honest answers!!

1. What drink do you order at Starbucks? It really depends on my mood but I love the traditional tall, nonfat vanilla latte. 

2. What is the one thing in your closet you can't live without? The "sick" sweatshirt. Ever since I was little my mom had a special sweatshirt that was over-worn and full of holes. But it was special because when I was sick, I got to wear the most comfortable sweatshirt EVER! I've got my own sick sweatshirt and I could not live without it! 

3. What's the one thing people don't know about you? I am an only child. 

4. What's the one thing you want to do before you die? Only one? See below.

5. What's the one food you can't live without? Peanut Butter

6 What's the one quote you live by? “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing." -John 15:5

7. What's the one thing you dislike about the blogging community? The expectation. 

8. What is your number one song on iTunes? I've never been a huge fan of iTunes. But I dig iHeart Radio. 

9. What kind of style would you describe yourself as having? Casual and classic.  

10. What is your favorite number?  #13. Been that way before Taylor Swift knew how to count. 

11. Two hobbies? Estate sale treasure hunting and cooking. 

12. Two pet peeves? Ignorance and Injustice

13. Your guilty pleasure? Dark chocolate chips

  1. What a fun post!! Greece is on the top of my travel list, I love that HP quote, and I have the Hunger Games but haven't read them yet! Gah!! I also love your idea to visit all 50 States. In fact, I have more of an interest in visiting the the rest of the US than international travel. Call me crazy =)

  3. I lived in NYC for 5 years while I was in college and then a year post-grad. Christmas in NYC is amazing and something everyone should do once. The city is all bustling, the windows are decorated, there are Christmas outside markets in the is just plain awesome haha.
