1. What is your favorite season and why?
My favorite season is fall! It never really feels like fall here, but I love cooler weather, windows open, all things pumpkin, and of course, Halloween.
Who could forget Football Season!?! Go Gators!
2. If you could travel anywhere in the world right now, where would you go?
I've always wanted to go to Europe, so somewhere there for sure!
3. What is your favorite meal?
Hmm...It changes a lot. I don't tend to stick with one thing. Steak and potatoes probably. 
4. Are you a pants or skirt/dress kind of gal?
I really like skirts and have been wearing them more often lately, but I would have to say pants. 
    5. If you could live in any other time period, which would it be?
    I honestly don't know. I love the Victorian Era, but then I think about how little say women had in anything, and I don't know how well I would do.
6. What is one trend you just can't get on board with?
Pattern mixing! It looks great on so many people, but I like to match and just can not bring myself to wear different patterns!
7. What is your must have item for fall?
Boots! I really want a pair of black boots for fall! Also pumpkin, I love making pumpkin recipes! Too bad hubs doesn't like pumpkin :(
8. Dogs or cats?
Dogs for sure! I'm not a cat person at all!
9. Must have beauty item?
Blow dryer! With my short hair, not blow drying it doesn't seem to be an option. 
10. What is the #1 item on your bucket list?
Get a "big girl" job. I graduated in May, quit the job I had all through out college in July to move, and still haven't found a teaching position. 
My fun bucket list item would be go to Harry Potter World! Hubs and I have been talking about going for awhile and it just hasn't worked out yet. 
11. Why did you start a blog?
Originally I started blogging when hubs and I were planning our wedding. I wasn't really active and didn't stick with it after the wedding. A few months later I decided to start again as a way to document all the changes that were going on in our lives. We were newly married, I had just graduated, hubs decided to get serious about losing weight, and we were looking to move. I've really enjoyed the community that it has brought, plus knowing others are reading keeps me motivated it actually keep track of our lives. I tend to fail at taking photos, scrap booking, and journaling, then kick myself later for not having things written down!
