Behind the Blog: Holly

Ready for another Behind the Blog? I’m having so much fun reading these and love getting to know everyone a bit better :)

Today’s post comes to us from one of my favorite bloggers and Everythingtarians, Holly!


1. What’s your name and blog address?  The Healthy Everythingtarian @

2. How long have you been blogging? One year and almost one month!

3. What do you love / hate about blogging? LOVE = meeting fabulous people. HATE = pressure to feel like I have to comment/read every blog I can.

4. What’s your favorite color? Blue

5. Favorite movie? The Cutting Edge (toepick!), Good Will Hunting and Dumb & Dumber – in that order.

6. Favorite book? I’m indecisive, so I need to choose three of them.  First, "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" by Betty Smith. It’s a classic. My second pick is "The Red Tent" by Anita Diamant.  An amazing look at biblical life from the perspective of a woman.  And last, but certainly not least, please read "Eat Pray Love" by Elizabeth Gilbert. Amazing.

7. Favorite food? ICE CREAM!!!

8. Chocolate or vanilla? Chocolate – anytime, anyplace, anywhere.

9. Favorite tv show NOW and when you were growing up? When I was younger, Full House and TGIF all the way.  Now, I watch three shows and three shows only: LOST, Glee and The Office.

10. Do you like playing sports? Watching sports? Yes, and yes.

11. Are you a coffee or tea person? Or neither? COFFEE. Preferably massive amounts of it.

12. Do you have tattoos or piercings? Just my ears. Mama Everythingtarian had them done when I was six months old.

13. Do you have any special talents? I wish – I don’t think the ability to sing the national anthem of Thailand in Thai really counts as a special talent.

14. If you could go anywhere in the world TOMORROW, where would you go? I would go to ARGENTINA and hopefully to dance a dirty Argentinean tango with a sweaty, raven-haired Latin lover in the back streets of Buenos Aires!

15. Last thing you ate? A pickle.

16. When you were young, what did you want to be when you grew up? Based on my kindergarten yearbook, a doctor or dentist. In elementary and middle school, I had secret aspirations to be an actress. In high school, I lost all sense of self and had no idea what I wanted to be.  I still don’t :).

17. What was your favorite subject in school? Art!

18. What games did you play when you were younger? I was Queen of Four Square on the elementary school playground. Don’t mess with me or I will cherry bomb the h$%* out of you.

19. Favorite restaurant? Honestly, I don’t discriminate.

20. Favorite store? Anthropologie. Obsessed.

21. Favorite animal? I hope PETA doesn’t come after me with BB guns for saying this, but I don’t really like animals.  I’ve had one too many scarring childhood experiences with them.

22. Favorite thing to cook/make? I heart baking.  Anything involving sugar will get my vote.

23. Most embarrassing guilty pleasure? America’s Next Top Model marathons on Oxygen.

24. Do you have any nicknames? Gah, too many to count!

25. List one thing the “blog world” doesn’t know about you but should! I beat the Nintendo 64 game Diddy Kong racing in 6th grade. Yes, I am a former gamer.

  2. Holly is awesome. And she’s so expressive and open on her blog, none of these answers really surprised me! Ice cream is definitely a great favorite food

  3. I really love these! I’ve recently gone on a meeting-new-blogs spree and I can’t wait to check out her blog.

  4. This made me happy. I love the both of you!

  5. “I hope PETA doesn’t come after me with BB guns for saying this, but I don’t really like animals.”

    Best sentence ever! I would much rather someone be totally honest and upfront than say something totally PC and boring. Get it Holly!

  6. SOOO loving the behind the blog feature! Keep it up! SO fun finding new, wonderful blogs (and bloggers!!)

  7. Love behind the blog!

    It makes me want to start one, just so I am featured!

  10. Cool series!

    PETA is going to get you good for that one, Holly.

    P.S. You are going to have to prove your ability to sing the Thai national anthem in Thai to me…on Sunday. At whatever coffee shop we’re at. Just FYI.

  11. Great to meet you, Holly! Thanks for “hosting” this awesome series, Brandi!

  12. Love these Brandi and Holly! Can’t wait for mine…ya got it right?

    Holly, I was so scarred by animals when I was little too…

  13. thanks for the behind the blog feature – i also LOVE hearing about other bloggers! i totally forgot that i answered some of the questions that way, including pseudo-swearing on your blog :)

    p.s. i just realized on my blog, i listed my fave movies as the amelie, good will hunting and singin’ in the rain, which totally makes me a liar. how’s about just putting them all together and making a top 5?

    have a fab weekend brandi!

    Heads up, looks like her blog is linked incorrectly. I found her, but I hate for other people to miss finding her blog! :)
