I got home early this morning from an awesome trip to Alaska and took the rest of the day off to run errands and catch up on some things. I will for sure be blogging about the gorgeousness that is Denali National Park asap. So a little over a week ago, Liz from Sundays with Sophie was kind enough to nominate for the Liebster Award. (Thanks Liz!) So today I’m going to answer the questions she asked and nominate my blogging friends!

What’s your favorite candy bar?
I used to eat a lot more candy than I do now. I mostly eat pretty well and only occasionally eat sweets these days. But I’ve always loved Reese’s peanut butter cups and Snickers.
What’s your least favorite chore?
I don’t love washing the dishes, nor do I love sweeping or mopping the floors. And don’t get me started on cleaning the toilets!
What would you say is your best quality?
I would say I’m a huge supporter. I am my friends’ biggest fans and love to celebrate their accomplishments and success with them.
Also, since I live half way across the country from my best friends back in Chicago, I also like to send cards and random surprise care packages in the mail. Who doesn’t love getting mail? :)
What’s a secret talent that you have that no one knows about (but now the world will after you post this)?
Hmm this is a tough question. I don’t know if I have any hidden talent, does moving my ears back and forth count? Hah! I don’t think I have any!
Favorite kind of date?
Something meaningful and thoughtful but not overly stuffy and formal. Dave and I love to go hiking, camping, go out to eat, cook at home, and walk around cute little towns.
What is your guilt pleasure TV show (that one you don’t want anyone to know you watch)
I talk about the bachelor franchise all the time, but it is a little embarrassing that i watch it :)
What was your worst date?
To be honest I didn’t date much before Dave. We started dating my freshmen year of college and have been together ever since :)
Your favorite hairstyle you love to wear?
My go to hairstyle is the half up, it’s easy and not fussy. I’m not big into makeup and getting all gussied up all the time.
Whats your LBD look like? (little black dress)
I have a few! I have one that has half sleeves to my elbow and is knee length, and I have I have a swimsuit coverup type dress that has a small opening in the back. (I’m currently at work or else I’d post photos of the dresses.)
Place you’d love to visit?
My European Bucket List is ever growing. I want to go to London, Paris, Rome, the Greek Islands, Amsterdam, Switzerland, etc etc! So many places. I’m dying to get over to Europe one of these days!
And within the US and Canada I really want to go to Glacier National Park and Lake Louise in Banff National Park. I already looked up how far they both are from Seattle and they’re both about a 9 hour drive. Hello road trip! ;)

What’s your favorite room in your house?
We are moving this October to Seattle and are super excited to start our house search, but in the mean time my favorite room in our place is the living room. We have our comfy couch where we watch our shows and documentaries, and we recently put up a gallery wall with some of our finds on the road. I want to do a separate post about our gallery wall one of these days!
