2. List 11 random facts about yourself.

11 Random facts About Me

1 - When I was little, I really wanted to work at Dairy Queen when I grew up. That was my dream job. Every time they had those self-serve ice machines at gas stations, I would practice making it pretty.
2 - My husband and I only speak French to each other.
3 - I'm a big baby when I'm sick. 
4 - My favorite accessory is a $10 spoon ring that I bought used off of Ebay.
5 - I'm supposed to be cleaning right now. 
6 - Beauty & the Beast was my favorite film as kid. I always wanted to visit France after that...
7 - I was Valedictorian in High School. If you're wondering, yes, I'm still a bit of a geek.
8 - I almost ended up studying abroad in Switzerland. Fate had other plans.
9 - I get stressed out when people eat with their mouths open and make noises.
10 - Summer's my favorite.
11 - I work at a high school and people are constantly shooing me out of the teacher's lounge, because they think I'm a student.

1.Is there something you could eat everyday? 
-Ice cream.

2.What is your guilty pleasure?

- I have lots. Watching glee, reality T.V. (anyone else stoked for the Bachelorette?), and positive gossip (I don't want to know who cheated on who - but if the super cute couple down the street is expecting, and not telling anyone yet, I'm a sucker and want to hear all about that which is none of my business!)

3.Do you have a favorite book?

- Harry Potter. I am too old to say that? This should probably go under the guilty pleasure category as well...

4.If you had to only wear one outfit for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?
- Long leggings with boots and a casual/dressy dress. This kind of works for everything. Dresses are acceptable in almost every social situation, can easily be dressed up or down with accessories, and I can just take off the leggings when it gets hot in the summer.

5.What is one quality about your parent(s) you love?
- My mom is ridiculously creative and my dad is always honest.

6.What is something you want to do but haven't yet?

-Scuba Diving!

7.One of the funniest things you have ever heard, what was it?

Pretty much anything from Ellen DeGeneres...

8.What are your nicknames?

-Patti, Trish, Tricia.

9.I'm coming to visit you, what is a must see/do in your town?

- Eating! If you come to visit me, you'll probably gain weight. Pastries, tartiflette, ravioles, fondu....
Or you could come in December and visit the super cute Christmas market that they set up in little snow covered cabins down town.

10.Is there something you would rather pay someone to do for you than do yourself? If so, what?
- Cleaning the bathroom.

11.City or country?
- City. I grew up in a small town, but I'm just not a country girl at heart.

I nominate:

Michaela @ our DIMOND life
Alex[andra] @ Let Life Be Like Music
The Hemborg Wife
Amanda @ Living in Another Language

  1. Congrats on your award! I remember getting the liebster - it was my first award, too. Very exciting!

  2. Me! I'm excited for The Bachelorette! And I adore Harry Potter-they are some of the most well written books of all time. I'm convinced we would be best friends. All of your answers are pretty much what I would say. When my hubby and I finally get enough money saved up to get back over to Europe, I'm visiting you. Deal? :)

  3. Congrats on the award and thanks again for the nomination. :)

    I *hate* when people eat with their mouth open. Yuck!

    That is amazing that you look so young you're mistaken for a student!

    I LOVE to eat! If I ever come to France, I'm visiting you for sure!

    These are all great answers. :)

  4. This is so great! I totally want to gain weight eating French food! The Dairy Queen job cracks me up!

    p.s. it would be awful if we got sick together. we'd be the biggest whiny mess :)

  5. Patti- you make me smile :)

    Ummmmm... and going to France is something I've wanted to do for sooooo long. When I save my pennies, I'll come see you and we'll eat those pastry shops clean.

    Congrats on the award! I LOVE your blog. It's no surprise you got nominated. Your fantastic!

  6. Hi Patricia!

    I wanted to hop over from your sweet comment on my blog and say hello :) I couldn't respond to your comment via email like usual because your email is set up as "no reply" right now, if you want to change that and make it easier for bloggers to respond to you there's a link to a tutorial on one of my recent blog posts! :)

    I looooove your blog. France?? You have to have the most romantic life I've ever seen. I can't wait to read more and get to know you! :)


  7. Aw! Thank you so much for the nomination! I love reading posts from your cute little blog. It's absolutely adorable. I agree 100% with the mouth-open-chewing-problem. Unfortunately for me, chewing with your mouth open and smacking is a cultural norm here. Not to mention slurping soup. AAAAHHHH.

    1. Oh dear, I think I would have a hard time with that cultural norm. Yuck!
      And I love your blog, you totally deserve the nomination!

  8. Congrats! I looooooove Glee and can't handle the sounds of people chewing either. It drives me craaaazy :)

  9. I am so excited thank you and awesome questions! I also am not sure if Harry Potter is a guilty pleasure since it is so awesome and should be everyones pleasure!
