A Little Q&A

If you could learn a new skill, what would it be? I want to learn more about sewing! I know a tiny bit about it, but I really want to become proficient at it enough to make clothing.

What was your favorite book as a child? I can remember a few favorites throughout the years: Corduroy, The Little Engine That Could, anything Clifford or Berenstain Bears and The Amazing Days of Abby Hayes book series during my preteen years. I also remember looking at a picture book about naked mole rats almost every night before bed with my mom and brother 😂

How do you take your coffee or tea? I’m more of a coffee girl, and I have it with a generous splash of half and half. For tea, I pretty much drink it straight on the rare occasion I have it!

What I wrote in 1999

My great aunt just emailed me a PDF of a homework assignment I sent her when I was seven-years-old. I thought I would share a screen shot of it here on my blog. The best part is definitely the last sentence, haha!

I guess I always liked food and writing. And writing about food. And making sure my pets were alive.


On a random note, please tell me you’ve heard of stink bugs. It seems like they magically appear in Pittsburgh when the seasons change, or if we have a warm spell in colder months. I have been having such a struggle with these bugs! I have literally found dozens of them inside my truck the past few days.

The worst feeling is when I’m driving and I know a stink bug is flying around in my truck. I end up making faces like this.

Confused. Scared. Mad. All kinds of emotions going on.

Also, thanks to everyone who said they liked my fall-ish outfit in my last post! The jean jacket? I borrowed it from Hannah… without her knowing 😉

Have you seen/heard of stink bugs?

(If I see one more I’m going to cry. Just kidding. But not really..)

Did you have a favorite subject in elementary school?
(Mine were gym and English!)
