20 Questions

I spotted this fun questionnaire on Natalie's blog a few weeks ago and decided to give it go. I always love getting to know bloggers better and figured it would be a fun midweek post. 

A little about me: 
I am in my mid 20s, soon to be later half in a little less then a month and live in Raleigh, NC! I originally started my blog when I had first moved to Charlotte and was working to complete my Child Life degree and finishing up my internship. My of my blogging is focused around life in general- recipes, fashion, home decorating, and any other randomness I encounter along the way!

1.Favorite food:  
Pizza. I love love love pizza and could eat it for any meal. 

2. Flip flops or high heels: 
Flip flops for every day but heels for at night. I barely reach 5'2 so when it comes time to dressing up I am always up for the added height, plus I think it makes me look a bit more polished. 

3. Favorite places to shop for yourself: 
TJ Maxx, Marshalls, J.Crew Factory, Banana Republic, Antrhopologie, Loft

4. Standard Coffee order: 
Grande iced coffee unsweetened with extra shot of espresso, a touch of half and half and half of a sweet and low packet... perfection! 

5. Road trip must have snack: 
Coke (in a can) and cheez its

6. DIY or hire it out? 
My mom and I can be pretty crafty and love to take on new projects and decorating ideas. Lately she has been all about redoing furniture and everything has turned out amazing.

7. Top 5 TV shows: 
Blood line, Scandal, True Detective, Greys Anatomy, Friends 

8. Favorite Book: 
As an avid book reader its so hard for me to pick a favorite, I just finished Girl On The Train and loved it. 

9.  Favorite Form of Exercising: 
Another tough one for me to pick a favorite! Lately I have been on a pretty set routine of running 3 miles Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays, while Tuesday and Thursdays have been weight training. I also love a good spin class + hot yoga! 

10. How tall are you?

11. Do you try something new at restaurants or stick to your favorites?
I am pretty good about trying new things but do have a few favorite I always come back to. There are so many amazing restaurants in Raleigh and I have been keeping a running list of places to try.

12. One make up item you can't live without:
Under eye concealer, it's a complete game changer

13.  What's on your nightstand?
A few magazines, books, and glass of water

14. What's one thing motherhood has taught you?
No babies for me! 

15. Music that reminds you of high school: 
Jack Johnson

16. If you could live anywhere in the world besides your current city where would you live?
Last year I made a trip out to San Francisco to visit one of my best friends, Angelica and absolutely fell in love. Unfortunately it's bit far away from my family but it's somewhere I will always dream of living. 

17. Tell us something about you we might not know: 
This is completely crazy but to this day I do not know how to ride a bike. My parents swear I learned when I was younger but I think it must have been a one and done situation. I've tried to pick it up since but when your older and have an idea of how much it's going to hurt when you fall- it's a bit frightening. 

18. Websites you read/browse (besides blogs):
Pinterest, Elite Daily, Thought Catalog, People, The Every Girl

19. Morning person  or Night owl?
Most definitely morning. I am normally up by 5:45 on week days and out to the gym and in bed most nights around 9pm. 

20. Favorite Breakfast meal:
Omelet with cheese and salsa + piece of avocado toast.

Yours truly, 
Emily Ann
