Sunday Social!!!

Sunday Social here I come!!!

Sunday Social

This week’s questions are very intriguing. I can’t wait to read everyone’s answers. Be patient with me, as some of these answers might change as I read everyone’s. lol!!

  • What is your ideal way to relax?
    •  Ideally, in a perfect world, I would be in a hot bath (that never gets cold) reading a good book with a Starbucks in my hand. Realistically, laying in bed while listening to calming music (ex: Fast Car by, Tracy Chapman) and drinking tea. {Now, that sounds awesome…I haven’t done that in YEARS!}

  • Where is your favorite place to be?
    • Of all time? This one is easy. Ocean Isle Beach, NC. My family and I have been going there for YEARS (since I was a baby) and some of my fondest memories are in those beach houses with family and friends! Oh, how I wish I can go back soon! 

  • Who do you consider your biggest role model?
    • Hmmm…It would be my parents and my Grandpa Dick. (is it ok to have 3 role models? lol) All for pretty much the same reasons; dedicated, honorable, trustworthy and family oriented.

  • What does your life look like in 3 years?
    • Ideally, teaching somewhere in Illinois, owning a house, keeping up with this blog beauty (it’ll have a face-lift by then), engaged with another fur baby!!! Realistically, still living at home (yes, with my parents-to save more $$), hopefully maybe engaged, teaching somewhere in IL and still keeping up with this blog. I can’t wait to look back in 3 years and see where I’ll REALLY be!

  • If you could go back and change one decision, what would it be?
    • This is a hard one. It would probably be to not continue a toxic relationship for so long. I know that’s not really a decision, but I’m pretty confident in all my choices so far in my life. If I had to go back and change on decision, who knows where I’d be today. And (besides being away from my family and The Boy) I am pretty damn content with my life right now!

  • What is your biggest accomplishment in life thus far?
    •  Another hard question but a thought provoking one. I would say graduating college and landing a full-time teaching job right out of college. This would then lead me to my next big accomplishment, moving to a brand new town I’ve never heard of, on my own.

Loved those questions. Can’t wait to read everyone else’s. I hope everyone had a great weekend. I need some blog design and camera help. I'm looking for advice!!!

I’ll also be linking up tomorrow with Jessica and Jen for 5 for Five because I’m pretty proud of myself this week…hey, it’s lil’ steps people!!


  1. I looked into blog designs this week and it's EXPENSIVE. I am going to try and take some time to learn how to do it myself this year.

    Stopping by from Sunday Social!

  2. Hey there, new follower! Speaking of starbucks, I'm hosting a giveaway that includes a giftcard...all you have to do to enter is become a follower!

    Hope to see you swing by!

    And I totally hear ya on the toxic relationship, woulda saved me a lot of heartache had I met my mister the minute I turned 18!

  3. Hey! Thanks for stopping by my blog and following. :) We are fellow educators. I have a few years on you though.. LOL. If you ever want to talk shop let me know. Good luck to you!

  5. Stopping by from the link up! My friend Sarah over @ Fortune Favors the Brave does blog design for CHEAP! Like $20. You guys have a brainstorming session together and a few dozen emails later you have an awesome looking blog. I had her do mine for me and she's done a few others. Here is a link to her blog.

    P.S. Sorry about the previous deleted comment my computer went skitzo on me.

  6. I love that we have such similar answers... we really would be IRL best friends! Can't wait to get your email :)

  7. Yes, you are one of the lucky ones if you were able to get a job right out of college. I've been out since 04 and am still hoping!

  8. I totally get it with the toxic relationships. I had my own a few years ago that I wish I had left sooner, but then I may not have learned some valuable lessons about what I should expect in a relationship.

    Happy Sunday!

  9. I've been following Hubby Jack Blog Attack ( ) and, while I personally haven't had him build my own web page, I've seen his work and it looks pretty good! His prices seem reasonable also. He's also pretty hilarious!
