Questions & Answers - Part 1

MISCELLANOUS

IMG_1510

What are the top 3 items on your "Bucket List?" If 3 is too many I'll settle for just the #1.

1. Have a baby (or two) before 35. Yes, having a baby is actually on my bucket list ;).
2. Go a week without social media.
3. Take a photography course.

Did you get your kitty or your puppy first?

We got Fella (cat) first. I think we messed up since he was by himself for 5 years of his life, so he began to think he was human. And now there’s another “human” in the house and he absolutely hates it.

How are your cat and doggie getting along?

Fella refuses to give Izabella a chance. My dreams of my cat and dog cuddling with each other is slowly going down the drain. If only I could keep Izabella from chasing Fella each time he’s in the room.

I want more wedding pics.

I used to do a Wedding Wednesday on the blog in 2010. If you go to my pages on my blog above you will see a link called Our Wedding. In this link, you’ll read our wedding recap and see millions of pictures.

What is your dream job?

I would love to be a personal shopper. Whenever I go shopping with a friend I’ve noticed that I'll see something and I can immediately see that person in it. And without fail, they try it on and it looks just as I thought it would. I love it most when a friend says, I never would have thought to try it on. Plus, being able to shop without spending a dime is a thrill for me, even if the items are not my own.

What's your favorite place you've ever traveled, and where can you not wait to visit next?

I absolutely loved visiting Aruba. There is just something so serene and gorgeous about Aruba. I hope that Sean and I will be able to go together someday.

I can’t wait to go to Ghana (Africa) with Sean one day. We don’t have a date (yet) but it’s something we are both looking forward to.

(sidenote: I visited Ghana for one month in 2005)

"If you could be granted one wish, what would it be?"

I would love to live without fear. Yeah, I know. I could have said be invisible, read people’s minds, etc. But that doesn’t really appeal to me. I think that fear can really take over my thoughts which means that I’m not letting go and letting God. So I’ll love to live without fear.

Living without fear... What a great wish!
I never thought of that... And I'm the biggest scaredy cat there is! ;)

And I am with you with the personal shopper! So many of my friends want to go shopping with me because of what I find for them ;)

Sarah said...

Love your bucket list! And I need you as a personal shopper. I am such a boring dresser! And I love that you dress cute on a budget.

A whole week without social media?! Let me know when and I'll totally join you :-) We can text each other instead...wait...would that be considered social media? LOL

Christelle said...

Sign me up for personal shopping! I get stuck in such a rut with my work outfits...I call it my uniform - black slacks, flats, and some kind of cardi. BORING!

Learning to live without fear would be awesome...its so hard to let go and let God take control!

Lauren said...

I would love to travel. I have no idea where I would start, though, since I've hardly been anywhere!

I love your answers to this Faith, have a feeling that I'm going to really enjoy this series. It's so interesting to hear that you want to go to Ghana with Sean for a visit, I'm curious as to why, Africa on a whole interests me as well, I'd love to visit countries like Ghana and Kenya.

Sharon said...

I really like Aruba too although I liked Curacao more! Your camera is so pretty too by the way :)

Desiree Macke said...

A week without social media?! Woah. If you do that one be sure to document how it goes.
I could totally see you being a personal shopper!
Our cat and dog took awhile to "get along." Even now they ignore each other. At least we're past the part where the cat continually hisses and growls. So I guess that's progress. :)

Maria said...

Aruba is definitely on my must travel to list!

Kathy C. said...

These are awesome answers!! Poor Fella... lol And I hope you and Sean can go to Ghana soon and visit your family! That would be an amazing experience!

Love Meghan said...

i loved reading your q and a's, faith! going a week without social media is a must for me, too.

Morgan said...

You want to BE a personal shopper, I've always wanted to shop WITH a personal shopper! Haha. :)

Monique said...

I really love learning more about you! Can't wait to read more. When I was in sixth grade a motivational speaker came in and he said F.E.A.R.= False Evidence Appearing Real. Often times we are afraid of things based on information that is untrue, we just don't know but we make that unknown hold us back.

I love this! I wanna do it on our blog now too :)....so fun getting to know more about you. And you would make an EXCELLENT personal shopper...you have such great style. You have an eye for unique, one of a kind pieces and you know what looks good on you...so I'm sure that would apply to others as well. Do it, do it! :)

Nellie @ Brooklyn Active Mama said...

Aruba is so amazing I love it too, but my favorite for relaxing islands is grand cayman (and I'm from Jamaica smh)

Fearless is a great wish!

You would be a superb personal shopper, can you personal shop for me? Please?!

Whitney Cypert said...

I love this post! So fun, I can't wait to read more Q&A posts! Fella, such a cute name for a cat. I need you to share more photos of your fur babies!

Eesh said...

I love that! To live without fear. I can go on and on about that but I won't.

I can totally see you as a personal shopper! It's so your calling!

Yay for answering my wish question (unless a lot of other people asked that question!). I think you answer is great and if I really thought about it...I probably would answer the same.

tiff@thecoffeehouse said...

Ok so I've already done #2 & #3 on that bucket list but I need to get started on #1!! ;)

Emily Gilbert said...

In regards to your last wish:

Joyce Meyer said fear will be present, but go ahead and "Do it afraid" (I'm talking about goals/dreams, not like robbing a bank or something - lol!).

I wouldn't want to be able to read minds either, peoples thoughts annoy me on Facebook and Twitter as it is, without seeing whats in their brain- haha.

LWLH said...

I would love to take a in person photography course. I see alot on time, but I think I would benefit more from in person.

And personal shopper, hell yeah. You can come to PA and become mine. :)

Rod and Alex - aka: "Rolex" said...

Living without fear would be amazing! Think of how much we could accomplish with no fear! :)
