Yesterday, Lauren from Lauren Lives Healthy (fellow Bay Area blogger and Tone It Up girl), nominated me for the Liebster Award! It’s not really an award so much as a way to recognize and acknowledge smaller blogs, and learn more about the bloggers behind them.
Basically, you answer a set of 10 questions then pass the award on to other small blogs. Check out my answers to Lauren’s questions below!
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you choose to live and why?
Right where I am! I love living in San Francisco. It’s a beautiful city and has tons of things to do and restaurants to try (I’m actually going to a new-to-me restaurant tonight called Range. Can’t wait for some delicious food and fancy cocktails!). I got lucky and most of my good friends from college ended up here, and I’ve also made a lot of new amazing friends since moving here four years ago. I also love being close to Napa, Sonoma, and Tahoe, and being a quick flight from my family and friends in Southern California. And, it doesn’t snow. What more could you need?
What’s your favorite website right now?
It’s a toss up between Pinterest (for recipe inspiration mainly) and Twitter (my main source of news). I also just made a Sweets ‘n’ Greens Twitter and a Sweets ‘N’ Greens Pinterest – let me know in the comments if you’re a blogger with a Pinterest or Twitter, I’d love to follow you!
Could you ever go a month without your phone/Internet?
I think I could! With one caveat – I’d have to be traveling and not in the US. Usually when I travel outside of the US, I turn my phone off and don’t go online unless absolutely necessary. The longest I’ve been phone-less for while traveling has been about two and a half weeks, so I could probably go another week and a half
What’s your all-time favorite meal?
Sushi. I could never become a vegetarian solely because I love sushi so much.
What is your favorite quote and by whom?
“Believe you can and you’re halfway there.” – Roosevelt. I’m all about quotes focused on the idea that if you want something enough, you can do it.
If money were no object, what would you do all day?
Travel! I love exploring new places, either far away (that’s me and Rick in Thailand a few summers ago) or fun, local weekend trips.
What’s been the biggest challenge since you started blogging?
Finding the time to sit down and post! Some of my favorite blogs are ones that recap bloggers’ meals and workouts daily (which is slightly nosy now that I think about it), but I’d love to post more frequently.
If you could learn to do anything, what would it be and why?
Cook! I love cooking now and am actually pretty good at it as long as I have some sort of recipe as a guide. But I would love to take classes at a cooking school and become a truly great, no recipes needed cook. One day!
What’s your favorite way to unwind?
Depending on how I’m feeling, there’s two – one is going on an easy jog with pretty views, and the second is cooking dinner with Rick or with friends (with a glass of wine ).
Describe your personal style in 3 words.
Classic and low-key.
Now it’s my turn to nominate some other great bloggers that I’ve come across and keep the award going!
Kara from Kara Chooses Happy
