Why did you start blogging? Originally it was because I'd journaled all my life and I found the idea of keeping an online "diary" really interesting. That was WAY back in the day before blogging was considered cool. Nowadays it's so much more than an online diary to me - it's a way to meet new people, make friends and get good feedback.
What do you do for work? I'm a server part time at Perkins Family Restaurant and Bakery (remember to tip your server at least 15%, we work hard)! I also graduated with an AA degree in sales and marketing so I'm looking for a full time "real" job as well. Hire me!
Who is Monte? And Izzy? And Roscoe? Monte is my three year old toy poodle. He's named after Montego Bay in Jamaica and he is seriously the best dog in the whole world. Izzy is my amazingly awesome fiance. And Roscoe is Izzy's pup, also a toy poodle!
You say you're a self-proclaimed coffee snob. What's your favorite coffee? I could answer this SO many ways! If we're talking drip brew I love La Minita Peaberry from Caribou or Blue Mountain coffee. Otherwise I'll order either a skim vanilla latte or a skim dry cappuccino if I'm going for hot (I love to sprinkle Raw Sugar over my cappuccino froth). If I'm looking for cold I like either an iced skim vanilla latte, a cold press with an extra shot of espresso and room for cream OR an iced espresso with white chocolate depending on how much caffeine I want.
How do you read so many books and how do you choose what books to read? Honestly, the only time I read is at night before bed. Sometimes I read on car trips or during the day but mostly before bed. I guess I'm just a fast reader? As for how I choose books, it's a mix of reviews from other bloggers, suggestions from friends and just happening upon books at the library or store. I'm on a huge YA Fiction kick right now which is always fun and interesting.
Do you have a quote or saying that you live by? "Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind." ~Dr. Seuss. I think these words are SO true and definitely words to live by.
