Onward, to the questions Lauren and Jill put out there:

1. Where do you live and what do you like most about it?

I live in Portland, Oregon and I honestly love so many things about this city that I had a hard time choosing- 1 favorite thing I came up with is Portland is really super book nerdy- the county library circulation is like the largest in the U.S,. we have a crazy high number of book clubs per capita, and Powell’s Books is here- check it out – http://www.powells.com

2. What is your very favorite blog that you visit religiously?

http://www.brightestblubinthebox.com <— Oh my god, I love this blog…really though, I love any blog with meticulous, honest reviews, lots of swatches and well shot photographs.

3. What is your favorite REALITY show?

Alas, I do not watch reality TV…ever. I DO love Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unkown on CNN- which I guess is a documentary/travel/reality type deal.

4. Who is your favorite sports team?

SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS, BABY!!!! (which makes living in Seahawks country difficult, at times.) Portland Trailblazers are a close 2nd 🙂

5. Who is the biggest inspiration in your life?

My daughter! She inspires me to work on myself every single day, in every way. I want to be the best mother I can be, nothing is more important to me than seeing her grow up right.

6. What is your biggest guilty pleasure?

Ugh, I hate answering this one. Drinking champagne and shopping for things I absolutely don’t need…I combine these two as often as I can, in that order.

BE YOURSELF. Stop hiding.
