Twenty Questions, Two Blogs

I was tagged to answer 20 questions by Carol, the gardener, my southern sister and friend! It has been awhile since I did something like this so I’m playing along. I’m answering some of them here and the rest are over on my Skirt!setter blog at Skirt! Magazine. Feel free to hop over if you get a chance!

1. If you have pets, do you see them as merely animals, or are they members of your family? Does this look like someone who views himself as a “mere animal?” I didn’t think so.

2. If you can have a dream to come true, what would it be? publish a cookbook, earn a living as a blogger, spend a month in Italy…to name a few

3. What is the one thing most hated by you? snobby people who have to feel good about themselves by belittling others

4. What would you do with a billion dollars? take all my friends and family on a huge wonderful vacation, buy myself a small cottage somewhere and blog to my heart’s content!

5. What helps to pull you out of a bad mood? a chat with a good friend, singing Tina Turner songs really loudly, thinking about a sweet memory from the past (i.e. trip to Paris with my brother as seen below!)

6. Which is more blessed, loving someone or being loved by someone? How can you choose? both are equally special!

7. What is your bedtime routine? Wash my face, brush my teeth, kiss Leon on the nose and say my prayers

8. If you are currently in a relationship, how did you meet your partner? in a college class (creative writing)


9. If you could watch a creative person in the act of the creative process, who would it be? Donatella Versace or Bernadette Peters

10. What kinds of books do you read? books about the south, sweet stories about love, books about crazy relatives, cookbooks, historical fiction & biographies 

11. If you could go back to school and pursue any degree offered, which would you choose? 
probably a master of creative writing degree

Since I’m not tagging anyone for these questions, how about answering just one of them in the comments? I can’t wait to see which one you pick!


  1. I love reading these things - it helps get to know the person behind the blog!

    I met my husband in college, too. The first time I saw him was when he entered (and won) a caramel-covered onion eating contest (he thought it was a caramel covered APPLE eating contest - whoops!). We didn't officially meet till a week or two later at a party :-) It was the impressiveness of the onion eating contest that won me over, ha ha!

  2. We have the same taste in books and the same thoughts about animals! Wish I could blog for a living. I think that would be fun!

  3. I tell people I met my hubby at the fraternity house, but it was really in a bar. Shhh...don't tell! :D

  4. Love your answers!!! Honestly, famous or not yet..I would love to meet you one day, sweet southern sista friend!

  5. Exact same type of books...reading Pat Conroy right now (again)...and like Mary, I tell my kids that we met at the library on campus, but it really was in a favorite dive in Athens...

  6. Met my hubby at band camp my freshman year of high school. He was the young, hot assistant director and, as I remember, yelled at me quite loudly on the last day of camp for being out of step.

  7. Great answers, I love finding out more about fellow bloggers!

    If I could make one dream come true: I'd publish a fiction book. Nothing as pretentious as the great American novel, just a happy little chick-lit tome would be excellent.

  8. I'd love to hear more about your trip to Paris! That is one of my dreams. Also, your brother is cute:)

  9. If I had one wish, it would be to see my children and their children grow up to be healthy and happy individuals.

    If I had one more, I would sing a duet with Julie Andrews, which means we both would have our old voices back!

    Love your answers!

  10. What helps pull me out of a bad mood is to talk with a dear girlfriend, go to work so I'm "forced" to think about someone other than myself, cry until I can't cry anymore, pray and eat "comfort" food (Okay, so that shouldn't be on the list, but I'm trying to be honest)

  11. Kate-you are so cute (and so is your brother!) I couldn't agree more with number 4.

  12. So fun! Win the lottery and retire young to Oxford.

  13. If I could have a dream come true, it would be to complete and publish a novel.

  14. oh please post more on southern belle's adventure in paris!!
