Fill in the Blank Friday {11}

Happy Friday!!!! I’d be embarrassed to tell you what time I went to bed last night/this morning. It was one of those nights where I decided to log into an old email account and read through random emails from four years ago. It was interesting.  AND today I’m GOING TO THE DENTIST! I don’t normally enjoy the dentist but let’s just say I got a little behind in my 6 month cleanings and scored a sweet LivingSocial deal which means I’m going to have fresh pearly whites in less than 24 hours. Report to come.

Now, it’s time for Fill in the Blank Friday. This week you get to learn some of the basics about moi! I’m linking up with The Little Things We Do!

1.  My favorite color is    turquoise/teal!!!!! I’m obsessed!

2.  My travel destination of choice is     San Francisco if we’re talking about domestic travel. It’s honestly a toss-up with San Diego, but since I’ve been giving SD so much Fill in the Blank love, I’m going with SF! I’ve been to San Francisco a couple times and got a great feel for all that wonderful city has to offer. I appreciate SF for its variety of “districts” yet big city feel with a whole lot of character. Not to mention there is an endless list of things to do there. Endless.


Yes, this is from the opening scene in Full House {my favorite TV show ever} and yes I am wearing white aviators. Don’t judge. This is from 2007-2008. Blonde and tan. Sigh.

I’d choose Austria if we’re talking internationally. I loved everything about that sweet and beautiful country; the people, the views, the culture, and the food. There was something about being there that made me feel home almost. Check out gorgeous Salzburg below!



3.  My favorite  food is     seafood, more specifically crab legs and sushi! Crab legs are a real treat for me though since I usually only eat them once a year {on my birthday!} When I’m on the East Coast though with my family, we sure chow down on seafood! “Crabcakes and football! That’s what Maryland does!” Name that movie!

4.  My happy place is     Barnes & Noble. I’m not a book worm but I find total peace just walking into B&N, browsing the shelves, and sitting down with a drink and a stack of books to flip through. If I’m having a bad day or just need to be on my own, that’s where I go. It’s therapy for me!

5.  My favorite saying is    "This above all: to thine own self be true” William Shakespeare from Hamlet. As well as everything Ralph Waldo Emerson has ever said. I adore those two men! There are a few other favorite sayings that I consider to be absolute favorites too.

6.  My dirty little secret is     I have to take medication in order to fly. Have to. Because otherwise, I might literally go into cardiac arrest. Oh, and even with the medication, I still panic. I am starting to panic just thinking about it. Can we change the subject??

7.  Something friends might say about me is that I     am a funny and totally random goof-ball. Was I the class clown? Heck no. I’m quiet and reserved when I first meet you and probably for a couple weeks after that. But, once I’m super comfortable around you, you’ll start hearing all the funny voices I do, and impersonations, and off-the-wall random stuff I come up with.


Hopefully you learned a little bit more about the girl behind this blog! So, what do ya say, friends? Who’s coming on a trip to San Francisco or Austria with me? Just don’t make me fly ;)

I too love Full House! I wanted to be sisters with MK&A Olsen sooo bad! I'm glad you're able to embrace the west coast so much even though you're a Virginian (I'm from Seattle, so the west coast is the best coast!).

Just stopping by from Fill in the Blank Friday! Love your blog.

I would like one round trip ticket to Austria with you, definitely. We can both have panic attacks together because I may or may not growing up spent the majority of the time while flying (which was a lot) in the restrooms for the ENTIRE flights. I think I may add this to my next "Did I do that" session so I won't spill the beans now.

But get excited. haha

Lauren said...

Okay, I will go to SF AND Austria with you. My mom has to take her "little white pill" to survive flights so I'm used to dealing w/ that... I can manage ;)

Love SF and SD! I wouldn't have ever thought to go to Austria but that picture sure is convincing me!

I love crab legs, too! My mom just started a tradition a few years back that on every Christmas Eve she makes them :)

Stephanie said...

Take me back to San Francisco with you! I went to East Palo Alto, California for Spring Break on a missions trip and we had one day to check out San Fran. We went to Muir Woods and the Pacific Ocean for part of our day and then we visited the Full House houses (so I LOVE your picture if front of it!), rode the trolley, went down Lombard, visited Fisherman's Warf, and went out to eat at Rainforest Cafe. I am hoping to do an internship there next summer and be able to see much more of it! If you end up going before then though, I'll totally go with you. ;)
