- getting to know you -



Okay readers...I wanna get to know all of you better! I know a handful of you fairly well, but there's still so much more to learn! Do me this favor...even if you don't normally comment (which I totally understand...but I also know my daily page views and my number of comments don't add up...so I know there are more of you out there!) please take just a few minutes to leave a comment today and answer my "getting to know you" questions. I really want to get to know all of you awesome people better! 

And just in case you want to get to know me better, I'll answer the questions too!

where are you originally from? where do you live now? 
I was born and raised in Lake Tahoe, NV (it was pretty amazing!) I live in lovely Southern California now.

what's your favorite type of music?
I'm a sucker for anything country! (yes, yes, I love country!) But the hubs and I are pretty open minded when it comes to music. There isn't much that I don't like!

how did you find my blog? are you a new reader, or a long time follower?
 hmmm, no answer necesary for me I guess!
But for all of you...if your a new reader, welcome to my blog. If you're a long time follower, thank you, and I love you for that!

 what's your favorite thing to do for fun?
 hmmm, I am so NOT a homebody! I need to always be out and about. I usually love doing anything that includes friends, live music, or food :-) We love being outside and active...hiking, camping, and anything else that includes fun and adventure.

kids or no kids? names? age(s)? fur babies? 

Well, you guys all know the light of my life..my heart...my Ellie. She's 2.5 years old (and she's ALL toddler right now, in every sense of the word!)





Please...play along! I can't wait to get to know all of you better!

I love Q&A games! Happy to play along!

1. Originally from Texas (I guess? moved all over as a kid so I'm picking TX 'cause that's where I was born). Now living in Minnesota. I know. But it's not as bad as you might think. Except from Jan - March.

2. Pop - esp. 80's but I'm a sucker for a ballad and like a lot of singer/songwriters, too (lovin' Christina Perri lately). I like country but more 'pop' country (HUGE Carrie Underwood fan...Taylor Swift...The Band Perry...Zac Brown...you get the idea)

3. New reader! And happy to be one!!

4. Favorite - absolute favorite - thing is to spend time at our Happy Place (check out the top tab on my blog to see why!!)

5. Kids - lovingly referred to on my blog as Thing 1 (16 yrs.) and Thing 2 (11 yrs.) ~ my joys!!
And 3 cats who pretty much run the house....

Have a great weekend!
:)

Hi Kyna! :)

1. I was born in WI, grew up in MN, went to college in WI, lived in CO, and now am settled down in IL.

2. I love so many different kinds of music -- right now, some favorites are Andrew Bird, Feist, Heartless Bastards, and Frances England for kiddie tunes.

3. I can't remember how I found you, so I'm just going to chalk it up to being a "longtime" follower of a few months! I do remember I first started following because the pics of Ellie were too cute not to.

4. I love shopping (anything from Anthropologie at the mall to thrifting), going to coffeeshops (especially ones in used bookstores), hiking around the great outdoors, and trying out new restaurants.

5. One little peanut named Lorelei who is 13 months old :)

I love this. I was born in Ft. Myers, FL & I currently live in the next city which is Cape Coral, FL. I guess you could say my favorite type of music is alternative rock?! I love The Fray, John Mayer, Florence + the Machines, etc. I can't remember how I found you but I'm glad I did!
And you know all about Rylin! lol
My favorite thing to do is go to the beach, the park, pretty much anything outside. I like to spend money on making memories!

Denise said...

Oh Kyna you're so fun!

1. I was born and raised in St George, UT, lived there for 21 years. Now I live in Texas and can't wait to move far, far away.

2. I'm a big country fan too. But I LOVE piano. I could listen to it for years at a time! No really, I could.

3. I don't remember how I found your blog actually.. I've been following you for a VERY long time. Ok, only like a year and a half but that about how long I've had my blog! SO you were one of my firsts ha!

4. If there's water involved, I'm game! I love the beach(but who doesn't?) I love boating, wake boarding, swimming, cliff jumping, throwing rocks at fish. You name it!

5. I have one little monster of a boy!! He's 3 1/2 and we call him bubby, hey you, child of mine, the offspring, but his actual name is Kyson! And we have a cat, that we hate and would not be sad at all if she ran away... Do you want her?

This was fun! :)

How fun!! What a great idea!

1. I was born in Chattanooga, TN, grew up just north of Atlanta and now live in a suburb of Athens, GA.

2. Country would be at the top of the list, but all different kinds work good too. (A lot like you!)

3. I honestly can't remember. I think I just (happily) stumbled across it.

4. I am starting to get into photography since we just got a new camera about 6 months ago, I LOVE to cook, run, anything outside- tennis, running, fishing...

5. David just turned 2 in April (everything is "mine", he is great at pretending, and loves to give kisses)and Rachael is 8 months (she loves to clap, just started crawling, and is a Mama's girl). Our sweet yellow lab, Bogie, is 12.5 (he is so gentle with both kids, doesn't mind being crawled on or having his ears pulled).

I am from St.Paul MN, and still live there now!

My favorite music is alternative/grunge, I use to be a hard core junky like Radiohead Nirvana, Hole, Smashing Pumpkins etc...but now I listen to christian music

I have no idea how I found your lovely blog! I have been reading on and off for several months:)

My favorite thing to do for fun would be casual walks, or going to a nature preserve, thrifting, watching movies, playing games with the family, and I love to serve the homeless (oh, and I like to play hide n- seek with my doggie)

I have a daughter, Madelynn and she is 17, and a poochy named Nells, as you know--and he's a bichon-poo

SO fun, thank you for involving us!!! Fun to get to know you too---it's so so key to be relational in blogging I think---to be able to connect with our readers, that, in my opinion is what keeps readers coming back and caring!

Miranda said...

Of course I will play along!

I'm originally from a small town in Wi called Tomah. Now i live a bigger town in Wisconsin. How fun ;)

what's your favorite type of music?
I have nothing set. I love it all. I loved country when I was younger, then hated it, and now I back into! I love it!

how did you find my blog? are you a new reader, or a long time follower?
long time follower! truthfully i don't know I came upon it but I am so glad i did!

what's your favorite thing to do for fun?
I love just hanging out with friends playing games (awesome right?) or I just love reading or studying (that's right not doing) art

I was raised in a suburb of LA, and I live in San Diego.

I love folk and bluegrass music. Weird.

I can't remember how I found your blog. I've been a reader for a while now.

Favorite activity would have to be travelling. I'm always daydreaming about where we're off to next. We also love hiking, surfing, and pretty much anything in the sun.

No kids. I have a chinchilla. We'll be trying for kids soon though.

1. I am born and raised in Pleasant Grove, Ut. I currently live in Lehi, Ut. (which is a neighbor city to Pleasant Grove)

2. I'm a country music as well! Pretty much what I listen to mostly! But do like to mix it up a bit now and again.

3. So happy that from somehow through the grapevine of bloggy world we connected! So happy you left a message for me on fb! You are truly a blast to chat with and one of those people I seem to connect with easily! Love your blog and all of your beautiful pictures too! :)

For fun I love to shop! Duh, who doesn't, right? And it can get pretty scary with having three girls! My poor husband! ;) I also love getting together with my girlfriends, going to the movies or planning play dates with our kids! But, most of all I love to take pictures. If I'm having a stressful day or something is weighing me down I pick up my camera and just go. It's kind of my little out!
