Taking a Break

take a breakKristina does the internets nominated me for the Liebster Award a while ago (thanks again lady!). I meant to answer her questions a lot earlier but as you can tell my life has gotten a little sidetracked. So even though I’ve already received the award from Sarah, I figured that today was a good day to check in quickly and answer Kristina’s questions. Why? Because they’re fun and I’m tired of unpacking.

\White Chocolate Cranberry Macadamia Nut Cookies1. What’s the best decision you’ve ever made?
Making these white chocolate chip macadamia nut & cranberry cookies.

2. When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I always told people I wanted to be a teacher but I think I always had my doubts about that. I’ve always worked with kids and I love it so I think I just assumed that was my only option (FYI- it’s not).

3. Flats or heels?
Flats! I’m a big fan of the way that heels make my legs look… but man do they hurt at the end of the night!


4. Why did you decide to start blogging? 
I had been reading blogs for a while and I really wanted to get more involved with the blogging community. Plus, last summer I found myself making a lot of pinterest projects and I wanted to document the proof that some of them were actually working out. Fast forward to a little less than a year later and I love blogging way more than I thought and as for my project making? Still love it but I haven’t been able to do as much lately. The blog has definitely gone through a few changes!


the roaring 20s
5. If you could live in any time period, when would you live and why?
It depends.. Would I have money in this other time period? If so I think I’d say the 20’s. If not.. the 60’s or 70’s. I’d like to be involved during a big time of change.


6. What is your favorite thing to shop for?
Homegoods! (The store & the stuff.) I wish I had all of the money and shelf space in the world so that I could buy all of the cute home items I find on sale everywhere I go. I should probably stop looking for those kinds of things…at least until we’re all settled in and I know what we need!


7. What’s the best book you’ve read recently?
I’d love to not say my textbooks, but unfortunately that’s all I’ve been reading lately.


Delphi, Greece
8. What’s the most adventurous thing you’ve ever done?

Going to Greece. It was a pretty fast decision! My professor told us about it and I signed up… then I called my parents and said “hey guess what…” from a girl who had never been further than Canada for a weekend without her family… that was a fun conversation. (If you’re wondering, I would go back to Greece in a heartbeat!)


9. Are you a dog person or a cat person?
Dog person-hands down. Just for the record, I used to like cats, but they try to send me to the hospital via allergic reactions so they have been seriously demoted on the list of things I like.


10. What’s the most embarrassing show you watch?
Tia and Tamara… as in not sister sister, but the currently filming reality show about the twins as adults. It’s addicting and wonderful! #sorryimnotsorry


11. Where would you go on your dream vacation?
Anywhere!  I’d love to make it to Thailand or to Anchorage (very different obviously, but both on my short list!) but I still feel like I have to make it back to Europe at some point relatively soon… Let’s just say I like traveling.


andddd now it’s back to the unpacking/work/grad class/traveling real world. I’ll be back again on Monday with some fun new things.
How are you guys holding up without me?
How’s life?
With Luck


  1. I wanted to be an English teacher for the longest time! Part of me wishes I went through with it- I’d have a job and be making a lot more money! Fun to learn more about you 🙂
