Behind the Blog: Allison

Howdy! Fridays are fun, and not just because it’s the start of the weekend.

I love posting these Behind the Blog specials – it’s so fun to meet new bloggers and learn more about ones you already know.

And this girl is Fun with a capital F. I met Allison at the Foodbuzz Festival last November, and she is awesome – funny, sweet, and just how you would imagine her to be in real life.

I hope you guys enjoy!

3. What do you love / hate about blogging?

I LOVE the amazing people I’ve had the opportunity to meet – who have become my FRIENDS – through blogging!

Both :)

9. Favorite TV show NOW and when you were growing up?

This is a tough one because I try to be totally forth coming on my blog!!! Hmmm, if I had to say something… I’d say I’m WAY goofy, and way more of a potty mouth in real life, than might come through on the blog! Shhhh! Don’t tell!

Thanks for the opportunity to let me talk about myself Brandi! You’re the best! :)

Thanks Allison! ;)


Want to Guest Post? The internet at our hotel in Honduras is always spotty so I’m not sure how often I’ll be able to blog while we’re there. If you want to have a guest post here while I’m gone, email it to me at branappetit [at] gmail! I’d love to have some more to post.
