You Asked, I Answered!

Remember way back when I did this post? No? I didn't think so.. I forgot too.

Well, I was going to do a vlog answering these questions, but y'all don't wanna see that and my voice totally gets on my own nerves, so I am going to answer them in print form.

Here we go...

Meg asked:
What is the bravest thing you've ever done?
I think taking a chance an going to MA school when what I really wanted to do was RN. I took a chance by doing it and getting my foot in the door. I wanted to gain experience, and allow myself to absorb more knowledge before taking the leap into nursing school. It worked out wonderfully, and I am very happy I did it.

Rebekah asked:
If you could go anywhere in the world where would you go?


I would go on a European vacation. It's always been a dream of mine to visit just about every country that Europe has to offer. If it was affordable, I would take a month off of work and just GO and do everything I could possibly do in that one month.

Heather asked:
When the heck are you coming to H-town for a Hoecake convention?!


That's a good question. I'd love nothing more than to meet my fellow hoecake!!! Plus, there are so many other bloggers that live in Houston that I'd love to meet. I just know we'd have a blast. Let's get to planning. ;)

Anna asked:
I see in your 'about me' part that you're an aspiring nurse? my question: where are you at in that process? (I love meeting fellow nurse bloggers!)


I still have a few more pre-reqs I need to finish, (I'd say maybe a semester or 2) before I can actually apply to the nursing program. The more I've been thinking about it lately, I'm wondering if I should go LVN to bridge over to RN. But that's still undecided. I am meeting with my advisor this week to enroll in a class for the fall semester and hopefully they can give me more insight on what my best option is.

Jennifer asked:
Where is one place you'd love to live besides where you are now?


I really love Pennsylvania. It's where my mom grew up, and I still have family there. It's so beautiful and I have some fond memories of being there with my grandparents as a child. It's always been considered a second "home" for me. I love it there.

Heather asked:
Favorite food ever?


Italian food. Hands down. I am a carbaholic. I would eat my weight in pasta and bread if it wouldn't kill me first. But at least I'd die a happy woman. ;)

What's the best book you've ever read?

The Secret Life of CeeCee Wilkes by Diane Chamberlain. It's SUCH a good book, and I haven't met one person who didn't enjoy it. If you haven't already, pick it up. You won't regret it.

Viki asked:
What made you want to start a blog?

I came across one on a boring day at work, and I decided I could do that too. I wanted a place to keep my thoughts, and I thought what better way than to keep it all in an online archive. So then, my blog was born.


Krystal asked:
What's your favorite singer?

I don't really have a "favorite" - I like all types of music. It really just depends on my mood. I will listen to just about anything!

What concert has been the best that you've ever gone to?

Toss up between Incubus - they were amazing live, and that concert holds precious memories for me, and Journey - now that was a bad ass concert. They were awesome, and how many people my age can say they've seen Journey live? ;)

How do you order your coffee?

At Starbucks, I get a venti iced coffee 8 pumps classic syrup with extra non-fat milk. It's delish, and perfectly sweetened! Before y'all go thinking I am a sugar addict, the venti already comes with 6 pumps, I just add 2 extra because I like a little coffee with my cream and sugar. ;)

Have you ever been to Florida? When are you planning your next Florida vacation... ;)


I have actually never been to Florida! I've always wanted to go though. Can I crash with you? :)

Kelly asked:
What is your favorite go-to outfit? Extra points? Show us a picture of it!! ;-)


My go-to outfits are always very simple. I try and be cute/trendy but comfort is honestly the most important to me. I know they say "beauty is pain" - well not in my book! If I'm not comfortable, I'm not happy. So most of the time when I'm not in my scrubs for work, you'll see me in a sundress or maxi dress or some simple jean shorts with a simple tank top. I was going to show y'all some pics (for extra points!) but I can't find any decent pics that show my whole outfit. I guess I should start taking more of those! :)

Thanks for the questions y'all - maybe next time I'll do a vlog. ;)

Oh my gosh! How did I not know that you have family up here in PA? Do you have any visits planned soon? I vote blate. :)

Julie said...

I think I might have to check that book out :)

Amber said...

I love learning more 'bout my fellow Amber!! I say - go straight for the RN. But my opinion is a bit obsolete :)

Jade :) said...

I've seen Journey too!! Went in College with a whole bunch of sorority sisters, one of the BEST concerts I've ever been to!!

Jessica Renee said...

Oh, carbs. They will be the death of me too! haha.

and I loooove Journey!! I've never seen them in concert but Ronnie and I have been to a ton of other classic rock band concerts. So fun!

Anna said...

I hear Journey is amazing, but I haven't seen them.
I'm not sure how long an LVN to RN would take, but I recommend just getting nursing school over with, whatever way is faster! :) I love being done with school and just focusing on getting experience! but that's just me. I didn't have kids or a job at the time, so my way won't work for everyone.
fun Q&A!

Meghan said...

Dude. What is a hoecake??? :)

Shelley said...

I liked reading this stuff about you. I didn't even know you want to be a nurse! I also read your review about the book. Totally want to read it now!

Krystal said...

hahaha you are always MORE than welcome to crash!

Jessica said...

Don't do the LVN!!! Go straight for your RN. It's getting harder and harder to get jobs as anything less than an RN. Plus a lot of hospitals are pushing for BSN nurses instead of ASN nurses. It might take longer right now but in the long run, it will be so much better for you. Plus then you'll be an awesome RN like me!!!

Heather said...

LOVE The Secret Life of CeeCee Wilkes!! It's one of my favorites too :). I also could eat my weight it carbs, it's the best food group!
