Where I’m based: I live in Washington state. The brown and dry side, not the green and wet side.
How long I’ve been blogging: I started my blog in November of 2008, but I didn’t start to get really into it until after I got engaged back in June of 2011.
Blog/business basics: I blog about my life as a newlywed as well as my adventures in trying to be crafty, being an aunt and living life.
Other blogs I love: I follow over 100 blogs so this would be a really long list. Each of them offers something amazing and I love them all. You can see all the blogs I follow on my BlogLovin’ page.
What do you like best about blogging? I love having a place where I can connect with other amazing women and men around the world. People that I have something in common with but that I wouldn’t have gotten the chance to meet otherwise.
Guilty pleasure: Yikes.. chocolate, reality TV, HGTV and pretty much any show on ABC Family.
Last thing I bought: I think my last big purchase was my new cell phone. I had been wanting a Samsung Galaxy S4 since before they came out. So, I treated myself to it about a month ago.
Fav stores to shop: I’m kind of cheap and I have a hard time spending a lot of money on things unless I know that I’m going to wear them a lot. I shop at Old Navy a lot because my hubby is the manager and he gets a pretty nice discount. Other than that I shop mainly at Walmart and Target.
So how was your first year of marriage? It was pretty great! It went by way faster than I thought it would but I loved every minute of it.
What crafts are you attempting these days? Well I just moved in with some friends since the hubby is working out of town all summer and all my craft stuff is in storage so I’m really not doing a whole lot. I have a few things on my Pinterest boards that I really want to try. A year around wreath for the front door (that we no longer have) was pretty high up on the list until we moved. I also enjoy doing pretty much anything with the Cricut that the hubby bought me for Christmas. I made sure that it was the last thing put into the storage unit so that I could get to it easily if the desire to be crafty came over me.
What do you do when you’re not blogging? Work, read, watch TV, or take pictures (when in the mood).
Do you have a favorite pair of comfy pajama pants? Umm yes! They are hot pink with white polka dots (shocker, I know). I’ve considered buying another pair but I fear that the second pair won’t be as good as the first — and that would just be disappointing.
