I am super excited to participate in a fun and different blogging extravaganza hosted by Rachel @ Beauty and the Bookshelf!
I love that this challenge is different, fun, and casual. It’s easy to get in a blogging slump where I am basically posting reviews and TTTs (both of which, I love!). But I don’t talk a ton about me–the bookish blogger behind the bookish blog. Well, that’s changing now.
Our first challenge is to post an interview with yourself. Enjoy!
At which store would you like to max-out your credit card?
That’s easy: Barnes and Noble. Hands down and too easily 🙂
Which fairy tale character do you love most?
Cinderella. It’s such a sweet story and I love that she finds true love. And I absolutely adore the new Disney movie with Lily James.
What was your favorite TV show growing up?
Definitely Full House. “Everywhere you look…”
It’s a tie between Downton Abbey and The Middle. I love them for very different reasons. Downton is beautiful, heartbreaking, dramatic, and British. And The Middle is so funny and quirky.
What was your favorite toy as a kid?
I loved my American Girl Doll, Molly. I need to ask my parents where she is….
Can you play any instruments?
Yes, I play the piano and played the clarinet in high school. I’ve recently started playing the piano daily to get my skills back up.
What is the oldest thing in your refrigerator?
Haha. Probably the homemade strawberry jam (which is new to the fridge but was in the freezer for several months) or huge bottle of Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing (I’m a Ranch snob. And a jam snob actually.)
What is the nerdiest thing you do in your spare time?
Hmm. Watch Star Trek with my husband?
What is your favorite cereal?
Multigrain Cheerios. They are so good!
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
England. I absolutely love England.
What’s your favorite flavor of Goldfish? M&Ms? Ice Cream?
Parmesan. Crispy. Mint chocolate chip. (In that order 🙂 )
What, or who, are you a “closet” fan of?
My husband and I really love old TV shows. Some of our favorites are The Dick Van Dyke Show, Little House on the Prairie, and The Andy Griffith Show. They make us laugh.
Any other things you love besides books?
College basketball and college football! Seriously, I’m borderline obsessed.
What are three things still left on your bucket list?
Travel to Asia (I’d love to see The Great Wall!)
Write a novel (I’m making plans to!)
Take our kids to Disneyland (They just need to be a bit older to appreciate it!)
If you could have any one superpower, which would you choose?
Apparation from Harry Potter. How awesome would it be to have the ability to instantly get to where you want to go (like my parents house across the country)!?
There you have it. A fun interview with me. I hope you got to know me a bit better. Look for more “Get up offa that Slump: Blogging Extravaganza” posts over the next few weeks!
