Hello! So I was selected by the two fun and adventurous gals, Amanda and Courtney, over at Suitcases & Champagne blog to share some personal facts about myself (as a nominee of the Mystery Blogger Award). I’ve been following the two girls on their travel adventures so it was great to learn more about them, and also to read about other nominees and discover new blogs. Seems like a great way to support each other and see what other bloggers have been up to outside the blogosphere! Thanks, Amanda and Courtney!
So here’s how it works:
Thank whoever nominated you and link their blog

Three facts about me:
1) I know kung fu. I practiced Wing Chun kung fu for over 10 years. I never go to class or training anymore, but I still get the urge to punch a throat.
2) I met my fiancé Eddie online on okcupid.com. We connected on Three’s Company trivia and skateboarding and have already been through so much together.
3) As you can tell from the first two facts about me, I was and still kind of am a tomboy. I pretty much live in jeans and sneakers, but I do love fancy heels and cute dresses. Especially when there’s an opportunity to IG it.
Questions asked of me:
What is your favorite city or country that you’ve traveled to and why?
New Orleans, Louisiana! That city is so lively and fun with the live jazz and festive party people. I went for a work conference, and I was afraid I’d experience some racism (being in the South and all), but nope. I experienced nothing but kindness and the best of southern hospitality. Can’t wait to go back. Also: great beer and oysters.
Do you have any career goals? What’s next for you?
I want to write a screenplay. It’s an aspiration that’s been percolating for years now. I should make it happen.
What’s the best life advice you’ve ever received?
I have never received good life advice. But I guess whoever said “follow your gut” was the best I’ve heard.
What’s the one thing you let yourself splurge on?
I would have to say handbags. Although I’ve gotten better about it and I try to purchase only preowned or sale items now.
What’s your guilty pleasure?
True crime and investigative murder TV shows. Some girls get caught up on “terrible” reality TV shows like the Bachelor and Real Housewives, but I’ll take Forensic Files, House of Horrors, and Stalked any day. I can binge for hours. Eddie does not approve.
