You Asked, I Answered. Volume # Too Many To Count.

A few months back I collected several questions that some of you readers asked and then took on the challenge of answering them. Some were easy to tackle, some not so much. Apparently I took the easy way out and answered the simple ones first because the ones below, well they took some thought. My brain prefers to not have to think about something for long so I apologize in advance if the answers mildly make sense. Lets begin. 

Sarah asked, "What is one item around the house that you are holding onto but should probably just throw away?" Well Sarah, I am trying to think of an appropriate way to answer your question, or maybe I'm still laughing at the usage of the word "one" in reference to how many items in our house that need thrown away. For the sake of my husband and his concern about what other's may think about us after seeing our storage room, I'll show you a glimpse of what our spare bedroom looks like right now.
So about that. As it turns out, after the sale of our first home, purchase and sale of our lake cottage, redecorating of our current home, etc we have accumulated a tremendous amount of CRAP. This could be the reason I have had to take pills recently to calm me down. Nobody should have to deal with this (you would understand more if you saw the storage room). Do not fear though, we have a plan. It's called "sell every single item we own and move to a tropical island." I'll let you know how it works. In the mean time, if anybody wants to remove every item from my house, feel free. Some call this a crime, I call it a Godsend. 

Raven wanted to know "Why don't you drink milk? Would you ever go completely vegetarian? Or vegan?" To honestly answer this question I first have to admit that I do not know the difference between being a vegetarian or a vegan. I always assumed that vegan was just an abbreviated form of vegetarian, you know, like a YOLO type of thing. But the reason I don't drink milk--because it absolutely disgusts me. The look, the smell, the taste..it is all just too much for me to handle. Combine that with the fact that it leaves milk crumbs on the counter every time it is opened, I mean. I can't even. The last time I attempted to drink it I was maybe 5 and I threw up. As far as the vegetarian (vegan) part to this question, yes I would totally consider going this direction. Last year I gave up meat for a few months and I could tell a huge difference in how I felt and looked. But like all good things, I stopped. 

Ali posed the question, "If you could have your dream job, what would it be and why?" 
You could ask me this same question ten times and you would get a different answer all ten. For the mood I am in right now I will respond with this, this whole online/blogging thing, would be my dream job. I love the constant challenges that being online presents and how it forces you to be "forward thinking" with what you can do next to raise the bar, generate income, create community, etc. I also love wearing yoga pants while drinking beer in the comfort of my own home so it kinda goes hand in hand. Ask me this question tomorrow and I'd probably tell you a bartender at a hole in the wall bar on a tropical island. With a water view of course. 

Diana demanded that I "Describe the contents of your purse at this very moment." 
 purse from miss chic

Well Diana, allow me. Currently it is full of tampons, Kleenex (ripped into shreds because apparently keeping single sheets of Kleenex in your purse doesn't get you very far), and antibacterial gel. Basically I am getting over a cold, I'm on my period, and really am just dripping with sexiness overall this week. Right. Bad usage of the word dripping. At least the purse is cute right? 

And that concludes today's edition of "things I didn't need to know about this blogger but now I know.." 

Come again.

  3. You crack me up! Our house that we bought back in the Spring is a 4 bedroom house... we went from 2 to 4 & doubled the house size. Somehow, there's not enough room for everything & thank God we have the 4th room because it's pure storage space... & extra closet space for me of course! I'm not really sure how this all happened! LOL!

  10. Really adorable purse. Love the metal details.
    Do you actually use to switch bag's with the season? Like grabbing the earthy dark colors for fall & winter and the fun and bright for summer & spring. Or do you coordinate them with your daily outfit only?

  11. Well, since organizing and de-cluttering are pretty much my favorite things, give me a call:) My husband tries to keep me from getting rid of stuff... call me crazy, but getting rid of stuff calms me down!

  13. Hey! I love this post! I really liked your answer about not eating meat. I gave it up as well and it does make a huge difference to me in how I feel. The difference between vegetarian and a vegan is that vegetarians won't eat meat. Vegans won't eat anything derived from animals such as eggs or dairy or even gummy bears! (They have gelatin, which is derived from cow hooves.) Veganism is definitely more challenging than vegetarianism. I've tried it a few times but it's hard. It's kind of crazy how many foods secretly have animal by-product in them.

  14. 2 things - I will not touch milk either! No one seems to understand this. And on the rare occasions where i eat cereal.... I eat it with a fork.

    And you could never be a vegan.. because of your love for mac and cheese :)

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
