20 Questions

I get e-mails every now and then asking for answers to 20 Questions before you pass it along to friends/family. I rarely answer them. I will confess that I was in need of content for the blog when I came across 20 Questions asked to Sara Jessica Parker by Marie Claire (as shared by Maegan Tintari of Maegan). I thought I'd join in on the fun and reveal a little about myself. If you blog or are active on social media, tag, you're it.

1. What brings you the greatest joy? Spending time with the people (and animals) I love…and being present enough to appreciate it.

2. What are your vices? Wine, french fries and dessert.

3. What is on your nightstand? A lamp, a box of tissues, a collection of essential oils, the nail polish from last week’s manicure and important mail that I should have looked at a week ago.

4. Do you have a secret talent? I sing a little and I can imitate a couple of accents.

5. What is your greatest indulgence? Coats. I love them and have way too many.

6. What should every woman try at least once in her life? Anything her heart desires…indulging her desire to say no…going on a date with herself.

7. What makes you laugh? My husband, The Read, Lola (my dog) when she’s in zoomie/psycho dog mode and running laps around the house.

8. What is one thing people would be surprised to know about you? I LOVE rap music and often blast it right up until I pull into my very corporate job. I also curse a lot but I’m working on that.

9. What is on your bucket list? So much! Right now, I really want to do a meditation retreat in Bali.

10. What is on your feet right now? Nothing.

11. How did you make your first dollar? Babysitting for a neighbor's baby. It eventually turned into my first summer job.

12. What superstition do you believe in? It’s not really a superstition but I believe your words have power. You name it, you claim it.

13. What items in your closet do you wear the most? Dark rinse skinny jeans, black tank, gray flowy cardigan.

14. What is the best gift you’ve ever received? Life and a husband who loves me, flaws and all.

15. What is on your liquor shelf? The real question should be what isn’t on it. It’s still pretty well stocked from the holidays.

16. What is on your kitchen counter? Convection oven, toaster, can opener, knife block, and an assortment of cutting boards stacked and leaning against the backsplash…or the piece of countertop crawling up the wall that wishes it was a backsplash. Kitchen makeover is way overdue.

17. What would you never leave home without? My phone and my wallet.

18. What movie has the greatest ending? Too broad…Love Actually (or any predictable RomCom)

19. Who is on the guest list for your ideal dinner party? I’m going to go with the living because my list of deceased legends to talk to is a mile long. Maya Angelou, Jon Stewart, Oprah, Jay-Z, Beyonce, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Whoopi Goldberg, Jim Gaffigan, Barack and Michelle Obama, the closest women in my life and Ash. It's just random enough to be a blast. 

20. What is one thing you wish you had known when you were younger? Things that I could never plan for will happen and uproot my life but it will ultimately be for the best. Everything really does happen for a reason so don’t spend time worrying and stressing over the things you can’t change.
