Blogiversary, and a Questionnaire

This past week was my blogiversary. February 15th, to be exact! You won't believe it...I've had this dang blog for 9 years! And you know what? It's not going anywhere. 

Anyway, here's a little questionnaire to go along with my blogiversary post. Do play along if you feel like it. I got this questionnaire from Emily

What did you look like one year ago today?
My hair was darker, and I probably had a bit of a glow from a tremendous amount of travel. I was covered in head to toe in anything warm, because at this time in England it was so cold I could hardly stand it. I was actually visiting Bath about a year ago today, if you want to see "exactly" what I looked like: 

When did you wake up this morning?

8:00 am because it's Saturday. After waking up at 5:45 am all week, 8 is such a victory!

What was the first thing you thought when you woke up?

Pleasant thoughts, because I love waking up NOT to the sound of an alarm.

Have you called someone today? Who and what did you say?

It's the morning, so that's a negative!

What mood are you in?

Productive. I have a lot to do before I move in with my friends Beth and Christian next week.

Do you hurt anywhere?

I am in dire need of a massage because my shoulders are killing me slowly. Or maybe I am killing them. Damn computer/office jobs!

If you could choose anything to eat right now, what would you want?

Right now a breakfast/brunch sounds amazing. I think I can make that happen today! There's a new little European-inspired cafe that opened up and it's calling my name.

And because you can fast forward in time with blogs, here is a picture of a delicious cappuccino from said cafe!

What did you buy last?
Decorative pillows because one of the good things about moving is redecorating! Took a quick photo to show you. I'm thinking of getting a red pillow to contrast it.

Which was the first website you visited on the internet today?

Instagram, naturally.

What are you doing tonight?

Thinking of shooting some pool with a friend.

Which is the first song you put on today?
"Baby Blue" by Badfinger. Because I just watched the Breaking Bad finale and I'm still reeling. Oh yes, a review is coming soon.

What were you doing exactly a week ago, this time?
Having a Breaking Bad marathon. That show takes OVER YOUR LIFE.

What are you wearing today?
This print dress, and very simple jewelry. 

The weekend then, what about it?
Last night I went to a performance showcasing dances from around the world. Belly dancing, River Dance and Flamenco Arana were all showcased--pretty grand! As for today and tomorrow, it's a mix of running errands and maybe playing some pool tonight. I mean, what do I do with myself now that Breaking Bad is over with? (Yeah, I know that's the third time I mentioned it). 


  1. i started binge-watching BB and nightmares happened soon after. any violent show that i binge-watch does that. anyway, i'd like to somehow watch it again, but slowly. i have no will power!
    and congrats on 9 years!

  2. 9-years whoa that's some achievement right there! Nearly a decade, power to your commitment for sure.

    "what did you look like one year ago", the same...

    Buckets & Spades

  3. Equally addictive: The Sopranos. I forgot to watch it until Gandolfini died. Looking forward to the BB review. That was one of the most perfect show ending episodes ever.
