Champagne and PJs (+ Answering Fun Questions)

My house is freezing all winter (we have an old, crappy heating system) so cozy pajamas are an absolute must for me! And a soft, oversized sweater that discusses my love for champagne is obviously on my must-have list as it should be on yours. Because, champagne.

After reading the responses from Hallie and Rebecca answering some fun questions from this article, I thought it would be fun to answer some of my own! Keep scrolling to get to know me a bit better and I’d love to hear your responses in the comment section (or maybe a link to your blog post where you answer some of these questions). 🙂

Would you like to be famous? In what way? That’s a tough question because I would like to be a well-known blogger and successful therapist (and to perhaps write a book in the future) so I guess I’d like to be somewhat “famous” as that often brings more success and opportunities; however, I wouldn’t want to be “celebrity famous” and have no privacy/have my life picked apart. But there’s only so much control I have over that so I think it’s more important to focus on doing my best with every opportunity I have… and what will be, will be.

Before making a telephone call, do you ever rehearse what you are going to say? Why? Not really, probably due to pure laziness because rehearsing seems like too much effort. I mean, maybe if it’s a conversation where I need to confront someone, I might talk it through with a friend first but that is a rare occurrence.

When did you last sing to yourself? To someone else? In the shower. Always! 🙂 As for singing to someone else…. probably my 1 year old sister!

For what in your life do you feel most grateful? My family and friends in my life, truly. And my career as a therapist as I find my clients to be so brave and resilient and it’s a real honor to be part of their growth.

If you could wake up tomorrow having gained any one quality or ability, what would it be? I just started taking yoga classes a couple months ago so it would be pretty sweet to be able to do some of the crazy poses and balances I’ve been seeing!

What is the greatest accomplishment of your life? Completing my master’s degree in social work for sure. The people that know me well in my personal life understand on a deeper level why it was such an accomplishment.

What do you value most in a friendship? Genuinity (is that a word?) is incredibly important to me. Other things I appreciate are loyalty, a sense of humor, compassion and being non-judgmental.

What, if anything, is too serious to be joked about? Eating disorders. My friend died from bulimia in her young 20’s and it’s not a game or something to aspire toward. I hear people say that they wished they were anorexic for a day but in my opinion, it’s like wishing you had cancer for a day. It isn’t a joke; it’s a deadly and life threatening illness.

Your house, containing everything you own, catches fire. After saving your loved ones and pets, you have time to safely make a final dash to save any one item. What would it be? Ah, can’t lie, it would have to be my phone!

I love all shades of blue but this teal agate necklace from Nikki E. Designs is pretty amazing! I’m also wearing her gorgeous black druzy bracelet and onyx bracelet. Her jewelry is beautiful, cool, and fun but even more than that, I’m absolutely LOVING that until December 25th, she is donating 20% of each sale to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Unfortunately, Nikki lost her best friend to Leukemia and what an incredible and special thing to do for her!
