1. If you could trade lives with another blogger for a day, who would it be and why?
I would probably want to trade lives with a travel blogger, if only so I could go on a vacation! Or maybe a style blogger, like Jane Aldridge of Sea of Shoes, just so I could play dress up for the day (but in trading lives, I would also have to trade bodies, because I wouldn’t fit any of her stuff – she is skinny!)

2. Do you prefer receiving handmade or store bought gifts? Be honest!
I love gifts! I don’t care where it comes from! So long as it is meaningful to the person who purchased it, that’s fine with me. I don’t like when people just randomly pick something up because they have to buy you a gift. Put some thought into it! I have been meandering around Etsy lately, looking for things for the wedding, and I have to say, homemade gifts are certainly growing on me as a favorite.

3. Would you rather camp or stay in a hotel?
I love camping, but if I had to choose, I would stay in a hotel. But Erik and I are planning on camping this summer so it’s not like I’m morally opposed to camping.

4. What’s your favorite comfort food?
Popcorn! I could eat tubs and tubs of that stuff. I also love macaroni and cheese. Mmmm… and ice cream. God, no wonder I’m so overweight!

5. You’re having a really bad day at work. How do you unwind when you come home?
I don’t typically do anything. Complain to someone, or just yell at the person in my head. Then just veg on the couch, watch TV for awhile, and try to get absorbed in someone else’s really bad day.

6. What’s your favorite chore? (Or, the chore you hate the least)
Favorite chore? Doing the pots and pans I guess. It’s easy enough. Least favorite? Anything to do with the bathroom!

7. What got you interested in blogging?
I had a journal on the old Diabetes Teen Talk website, but it wasn’t really going where because it didn’t have comments and I couldn’t update it myself, so there was always a lag time. So I started my own on Blogger after seeing the blogs from a few other people with diabetes. I thought it would be fun.

8. Are you currently reading a book? What is it?
I am reading For Better by Tara Parker Pope. It’s about marriage. Because, as you know, I’m getting married, and what better way to prepare for the rest of my life than to read a book about it!

9. Do you have a favorite artist?
I really don’t, actually, but I tend to like a lot of Italian Renaissance artwork. I am more drawn to photography, actually, but I don’t have a favorite photographer right now.

10. Have you ever met someone famous?
The most famous person I have met is probably Mary Tyler Moore. I’ve met her a couple of times. I met Abigail Breslin and Jennifer Morrison a couple months ago after their Broadway performance of The Miracle Worker. I have also met several Star Trek cast members, like Grace Lee Whitney from the Original Series and Robert Picardo from Star Trek: Voyager.

      It’s still one of my favorite things that has happened to me.

    I really love Etsy. When/if I ever get married, I plan on buying most of the stuff for my wedding (invitations, favours, table decorations etc) off Etsy; it’s the best place ever!

      My wedding planner is a big fan of Etsy. I’m planning on getting a lot of details from there. I am NOT a DIY person, especially since I’m getting married on the other side of the country, so I’m planning to use Etsy to make it look a little less cookie cutter.

    Hmmmm popcorn and ice cream. My two favourite comfort foods too!!

    Love this! And love Esty. That’s where I got the cupcake crayons that I gave away on my blog. 🙂
