a first.

I am so excited!  Amber from My Life in High Heels tagged me in this game!  It worked out perfect for this Tuesday morning because my life hasn't been all that exciting lately other than putting together what feels like a million wedding decorations...

and making this recipe that i found at one of my all time favorite blogs, Peanut Butter Fingers.

ooo and i laid by the pool on sunday which i thought was going to be a relaxing 'time to nap' sort of day but nick decided he would rather sit at the end of my chair and splash water on me while threatening to throw me in about every 2 minutes.  i did not nap but it was still a good day.

isn't he just a gem?

now for my first ever blog game.  6 things you should know about me:

What is your secret obsession?
i have two obsessions. 
   1.  law and order: SVU
   2.  coffee. 

i am not a tv person at all.  i grew up not watching much television and even through high school and college i was always the girl that looked really confused when my friends were talking about the bachelor or bachelorette or any ridiculously obsessive shows like that.  i do, however, LOVE law and order: SVU.  there are marathons on tuesdays and no matter what time of day it is or what i'm doing, the tv is on even if it's just for a little background noise.

oh and who isn't obsessed with coffee??

What is the best gift you ever received?
the best gift i ever received is my bike.  my parent's gave it to me when i was in 7th grade and i love it.  it's about 13 years old now and the handle bars are rusty but it gets me from place to place and some of my favorite moments are when i'm on it.  nick and i plan on getting new bikes with some of our wedding money but i don't know if i'll be able to give my old one up!

If you could have coffee with anyone, who would it be?
if i could have coffee with anybody, it would be nick.  i know that sounds corny but every moment with him is perfect and i learn from him, am at peace with him, and he is my best friend.  

What is your biggest struggle in blogging?
my biggest struggle in blogging is learning how to connect with other bloggers.  i love commenting and reading other blogs, i just don't ever want them to get the impression that just because i leave a comment, i want a comment in return.  i really just love people and writing and reading which are three things that the blog world have provided me with.  if i could just get better at link-ups (i'm still learning) and things like that, all would be great!

High heels or flats?
my two favorite pair of shoes are my brooks-ghost 5 running shoes and my nike frees.  so i guess my answer to this question would be flats.  i do, however, love a hot pair of wedges every now and then!

What is something that people are always surprised to find out about you?
i played the piano for 11 years.  it taught me to appreciate the art of music and it taught me a whole lot of patience.  that is a hard instrument to play, woofta!  (i'm sure all instruments have their challenges).  but i love being able to sit down and read old sheet music every so often.  it's kind of like riding a bicycle in that it just comes back to you.  not perfectly, of course, but most of the notes are right :)


  1. Hi Beth! Saw you commented on Mal's blog with my guest post and glad you agree about keeping the weight off, but you, my friend, ARE one of those girls with awesome metabolisms! You are a skinny minnie! :)

  2. Oh my goodness…how stinking cute are you and Nick!

    I share your same blogging struggles. I don't ever want to seem pushy or even needy when I comment.
