t-t-t-tag, you're it!

obviously, I love survey questions, because I'm a vain ass bitch and I like talking about myself. but I also enjoy reading others' answers and learning more about my readers. so today, I'm thankful that Ashley @ Love, Ashley tagged me in a post! 

I'm going to answer her chosen 8 questions and then tag 8 other bloggers to answer questions that I choose. if I tag you and you don't want to do it, I totes understand. not everyone enjoys doing these things, but if I tagged you, that just means I want to know more about you. :)

PS - I'm also going to add pictures, but that's only because I'm ADD and I can't stand to just see a giant block of text. this is not a requirement. haha.

1. Who has had the biggest influence in your life? 
this question is hard, because every person I come into contact with has some sort of influence in my life. I'm going to have to go with my dad on this one though - he's taught me SO much about life and how to be a hard working, productive member of society. he was always super strict on me growing up, which I hated at the time, but truly appreciate now. and I've been in the working force since I was 14 years old because he taught me the value of a hard day's work, and that in order to get what I want, I have to attain it on my own. I will always, always be grateful for the lessons he taught me. don't get me wrong, my dad is a hardass, but he's also a big softy and has the biggest heart ever. 

2. If you could change professions, what would you change too?
no doubt about it, I'd be an interior designer. I originally went to school for interior design, but because I had bills to pay, I had to start working full time, and school was just too hard for me to juggle along with work. I've always had an eye for design, and I remember rearranging my bedroom every other month when I was a kid/teenager. I love everything about interior design, especially space planning and choosing textiles. 
3. What's your favorite scent?
Coconut Lime Verbena by Bath & Body Works in the summer, and Love Spell by Victoria's Secret in the winter. 

4. What is your biggest fear?
losing someone I love. I've already experienced death on a deeper level than most people, and it completely tore me apart for a long time. I'm a stronger person for going through it, but I wouldn't wish that kind of feeling on anyone. it is absolutely debilitating to experience that kind of heartbreak, and I hope I don't have to witness anything of that magnitude for a very, very long time.

5. Do you believe in love at first sight?
only in the case of babies and animals. I believe in order to truly love someone, you have to know a lot about them... their good qualities, as well as their flaws.  

6. Where's the one place in the world you'd love to go too?
just one? I'm going to cheat and say Europe. I'd love to see the countryside of Ireland, and the city lights in Paris (and eat crepes). I want to lay on the beaches of the Mediterranean and drink sangria in Spain. I'd like to shop in London and tour the Coliseum in Rome. I want to see it all, and someday, I will. 

7. How do you like your eggs?
all kinds of ways - scrambled (with or without cheese), over medium, and fried. 

8. What celebrity do people say you look like the most?
no one really. I used to get Jennifer Love Hewitt when I was skinny, but not so much anymore. oh, and someone once told me I looked like Amy Lee from Evanescence, but I definitely don't see that.  I can't really think of anyone else. 

now, for the fun part. I'm tagging:
Alee @ Love Is...
Meredith @ La Buena Vida 

and my questions:
1. have you ever seen your favorite band live, and if you have, did they live up to your expectations?
2. what is your drink of choice? 
3. what is your most cherished memory from your childhood?
4. quick! there's some kind of natural disaster and you can only grab three things from your house to save (all people and animals have escaped unharmed)... what do you pick?
5. if you could have dinner with anyone (dead or alive, famous or not), who would it be?
6. who is your favorite comedian?
7. what is your favorite sport, and who is your favorite team from that sport?
8. have you ever been accused of something you didn't do?

have fun, folks! I look forward to reading your answers!


  1. Shopping in London and crepes in Paris are beyond explanation! I hope you get to do both one day, it was a life changing experience. :)

  2. we're scent buddies! lol, those are two of my faves!
