6 Facts You Should Know...

Guys! I'm so excited, I got nominated by Katie, from The Silver Lining (I'm in love with her blog! She and her husband Kevin are so cute!), to join this "answer 6 fun facts about yourself"!
Which I'm pretty excited about, seeing as I usually just post things I do on here, not necessarily characteristics about myself 
(although those do inevitably come through.... i.e. you all know I'm a study-a-holic/I love weddings/I love JP/etc).

But anyways, here are 6 facts about me!

1. Let us in on a secret you haven't shared with your readers yet. 
>> Umm, lets see... Okay here's an embarrassing secret about myself: I think I can count on 2 hands the number of times I've made an actual non-frozen dinner since JP and I have been married... yikes! But I'm making up for it now in Paris! I'm cooking up a storm over here! (I might even share some of my favorite recipes I've found soon) And a storm is an apt comparison for how the "kitchen" (it's tiny) looks after the food is ready... it's been sort of a trial and error learning experience haha. 

2. What's your favorite part about marriage?
>> My favorite part about marriage has really got to be the fact that I always have a partner in crime! I was lucky enough to marry a guy that likes to do the same things I do -- we have the same desire to travel and see the world, we love getting dressed up and going out, or sometimes really just love staying home and watching all 9 seasons of The Office. But no matter what, everything is more fun with him, and I love it. 

3. If you could have your dream job, what would it be?
 >> A doctor! (surprise surprise haha) At this point I'm thinking I might like to be a dermatologist, or maybe a pediatrician! But I'm not really sure yet. 

4. Share one goal off of your bucket-list with us. 
>> My bucket-list is mostly travelling and places I want to see -- Santorini, Greece; Cliffs of Moher; Normandy Beach, etc. But I suppose a goal off my bucket list is a little bit different, and one goal I can think of off the top of my head is that I want to become scuba certified! I LOVE swimming in the ocean, and snorkeling is great, but I'm dying to go scuba diving. 

5. How did your blog come about?
>> I started my blog almost three years ago (can't believe it's actually been that long...) to document my experience on my study abroad in London. I discovered I liked blogging, and loved how it was a good alternative for a journal (since I am the world's worst journal-writer), so I stuck with it! 

6. Guilty pleasure? 
>> Jet Puff Marshmallow Cream. I can't have it at our house because I eat it with a spoon and the jar will last a week, tops! Seriously try it, it's a hidden gem of a treat.  

Okay now it's your turn! Take it away

Pick 6 of the following questions:
1) What's the one beauty product you cannot live without
2) Favorite song of the week? Provide a link if possible!
3) Why do you blog? What makes you stick with it?
4) You have a day off from work/school/responsibility/etc, what do you do with it?
5) Where do you see yourself/your life in 5 years from now?
6) Alright, what's your guilty pleasure? (this one is too fun not to include again!)
7) What's something about yourself that your readers don't know? (a fact about you, a goal, an embarrassing moment, anything!)
8) Post a picture of what you're wearing right now! And point out how it defines your personal style.
