Polka dots, stripes & 11 questions answered.

What I wore: Top, Victoria's Secret. Shorts, Express. Necklace, purchased at a fair. Shoes, gift. 
Last week, Emily from Nation's Nest tagged me in a post asking these 11 questions.
Asked and answered!

1. What is a typical day like for you?
Wake up. Eat. Write. Eat again. Write some more. Get distracted. Write more. Workout. Eat. 
Hang with Ryan and Yoshi. Eat ice cream. Sleep. 
My days are riveting. Riveting, I tell you! 

2. What is your favorite breakfast food?
Grapefruit, Fiber One and coffee. Every. day. I'm weird like that. 

3. What is your dream car?
A Volkswagen Jetta! In high school, I would have loved to drive a VW Bug. 
Hooray for German engineering! 

4. Are you a spender or a saver?
Spender. But Ryan's a saver and he's helped me scale back. Plus, I love challenges so seeing how much we can save each month strikes me as a fun game.

5. What are your top 3 favorite singers/bands?
Senses Fail, Blink 182 and Eminem. 

6. What is the color you wear most?
Hmmm...probably blue?

7. If you were on a deserted island, 
what 3 things would you have to have?
Ice cream. Television. Ryan (does he count as a thing?). And I would have Ryan sneak Yoshi onto the island, too, because we're rule breakers like that. 

8. What is your favorite perfume?
I hardly ever wear perfume. Mostly, I just put on a bit of cupcake scented lotion. 

9. Flats or heels?
Heels, hands down. My 5 foot, 2 inch frame needs all the help it can get.

10. Beach or mountains?
Words can't describe how much I love the beach.

11. What is your favorite thing about blogging?
I started blogging after we moved as a way to share our new California life with our family and friends in Missouri, but I've been totally thrilled (and surprised) with the friends and connections I've made so far, in just my first few months of blogging. And as an aspiring author, I love sharing my writing with any audience willing to read it! So...thanks for reading! :)
