Let’s get to know you! Answer a few of these in the comments OR repost the list on your blog!

And don’t forget to email me if you want to be featured on my Behind the Blog series. I’ll send you some question (maybe similar to this list) for you to answer to post on my blog. It’s a fun way to meet new bloggers!


  1. love this! Oh, and tommy boy is amazing…one of my favorites growing up. maybe I should do the Behind the Blog series…especially since I just started blogging again

  2. When I was little, I figured I could live at Barns & Noble, surviving on books and the food at the cafe, for quite a while!

    I LOVE your dress!

  3. I love little things like this. I also agree with Katie. Your dress is holy adorable.

  4. I would NOT have guessed you to have piercings and a tattoo. Rock on ;-)

    • I actually used to gauge my ears and had them down (up?) to a 0, which is pretty big. But then I kept losing my earrings and they were too expensive to buy again.

  5. This was great!!
    Beautiful dress and I LOVE the name Lucy! :)

  6. I loved finding out 25 things about you! ;)

    Hope you are having a wonderful day girl.

  7. I love that dress!! Where did you get it? I too wouldn’t have guess about the piercings to tattoo. Fun post!

  8. Those pancakes look amazing. I wish I had some strawberries right now!

    I’m going to repost this in my blog, thanks for sharing!

  9. I ADORE your dress! Cuteness!

  10. Aw, that’s fun! I love the dress as well – very flattering :)

  11. I have to agree.. Tommy Boy is pretty awesome :) As is your fabulous black dress.

    Oatmeal pancakes sound really good about now… Hope you have a good day girl! xoxo

  12. Thanks for sharing Brandi! I filled it out with my answers and put it on my blog too.

  13. loved reading this love, thanks so much for sharing! <3 xoxo

  14. I love bookstores and hiking too! And Tommy Boy, obviously. For some insane reason, we watched that movie in my psychology class. Our teacher was insane… it started with vaguely “psychological movies” (What’s Eating Gilbert Grape and stuff) but then I think he was just sick of teaching and started bringing in whatever, hahahaha.

  15. So cool, i’m going to re-post this on my blog! Maple donuts… I think i’m missing out!!

  16. You may not believe me, but I had the exact same career aspirations as you when I was a kid! Marine biology topped my list as well, to play with manatees. But I was also considering interior design or forensic investigating. :) I AM a teacher now–not in a public school, but at a small nonprofit. It is a tough job, but I enjoy it.

  17. ah, love the 25 things!

    oh marine biology…loved you, but hated you for your chemistry and physics! and that i had to learn about phytoplankton. Boo!

  18. That dress is sooo cute!
    I answered these on my blog and we share a lot of similarities. Manatees??!! I thought I was the only one. :)

  19. beautiful dress!

    i’d love to be featured on the series!

  20. Hey cookie,

    What a great post.

    I cant believe you have piercings and a tattoo!
    You bad girl!
