3 Random Things About Me


I love seeing movies in the theatre. Despite how ridiculously expensive it has gotten, there is something about seeing a movie in the theatre that I just love. It’s definitely an experience worth the money in my opinion.


In my pre-teens (and even into my teens) I was convinced I would marry Justin Timberlake. I wished on every star, backward necklace, and eyelash that I would marry him. Well, the universe has a sense of humor because my husband’s name is JT.


I’m obsessed with Gilmore Girls. I even named my daughter after one of the characters.


My Answers to Peachy’s Questions

If you could have an instant portal to ANY part of the real world in your room, where would it lead?
Would it be super lame if I said, “work”? I know, I know, but the realistic part of me is like… I have a 40 min commute with two restless kids every day, it’d be sweet to not have to wake up so early in the morning and not have to worry about gas and tolls. #oldladystatus

What emoji do you think best represents you and why?
::scrolls through emojis:: The bee… because it is only one letter away from my name.

What gif can best describe how you’re feeling right now?

I freaking stayed up all night reading From Lukov with Love by Mariana Zapata (review to come). I’m not exaggerating. I started it yesterday and didn’t go to sleep until 4am this morning. Send coffee.

On a scale from 1 to 10 (10 being a lot), how much do you like Benedict Cumberbatch?
Oh, B.Cumb, how I love thee! 10!!!

Which character bears the most resemblance to you (physically or otherwise)?
Hmmmm… I can’t think of any character that resembles me physically, but I felt like Howl from Howl’s Moving Castle spoke to me on a spiritual level. I wrote about it here.


So, clearly, I suck at following rules, but this definitely was fun! Peachy’s questions were fantastic and I’d love to read your answers to them! Comment with your answers below or post a link to your post!

  1. I think the Theatre gets a lot of my monthly income haha. I don’t blame you for answering work actually my answer for that question would be college because it’s like 40 mins away and I hate waking up early haha

  2. Thank you, Bree – I had so much fun reading this!

    WHHUUT?! That’s such a trip about JT. WOW. JUST WOW.

    Same with the theater, I averaged about twice a month last year (and most of those I saw movies by myself, because I don’t mind AT ALL, and I love the big screen!)

    My parents and I discovered the wonder that is Gilmore Girls last year, and we binge watched all of it in less than a year! There’s still a Lorelai and Rory Funko POPS sitting on our TV stand, and I think it’s our all-time fave TV show we watched as a family yet… I’m crossing my fingers for more Netflix episodes. And if it was a book, Logan, Jess, and Dean are definitely my #bookboyfriends

    Oh, Sherlock. I LOVE HIM SO MUCH. There’s this new release called How to Stop Time by Matt Haig, and apparently Benedict Cumberbatch is set to star in an adaptation of it!!!

    1. OMG I’m all about going to the movies by myself! I don’t mind that at all either.

      As far as Gilmore Girls… I’m Team Jess ALL THE WAY ❤ I LOVE Dean, but I always felt like Jess was the best for Rory!

      Ummm.. give me all the B.Cumb!!!

      1. #TeamLogan – but I have to say every time I see Jess and he talks about books or other intellectual topics with Rory, I can’t seem to pick anymore. Did you get that Gilmore Girls box they were selling before at Litcube I think (you can choose #TeamJess #TeamLogan or #TeamDean) they had Gilmore Girls themed items and T-shirt based on your fave love team 🙂

  3. I love reading your answers to this post!

    I love how practical and honest you are lol. I’ve actually never thought about having a portal to go to work.. I mean the first thing that comes to mind is anywhere but work haha. Now, I’m having second thoughts because L.A. traffic is just the worst!! If I had a portal to work, I don’t have to wake up so early just to avoid traffic going to work, I can go back home for lunch, and I can get home and not be stuck for 1 1/2 to 2 hours in traffic… Imagine the possibilities with those extra hours…. I can read more and maybe and finally catch up with my TBR… You’re a genius! I really wish I can have that portal now!

    I also love going to movies…but my boyfriend and I tend to be a little bit more selective. We usually pick movies that are popular or would look really awesome in a theater so like Marvel movies and anything with nice special effects. It does get expensive so we always try to go for the morning shows since they are a little cheaper.

    And the gif you picked… that is sooo me everyday!

    Hope you’re having a great day and have a lovely weekend!!!



    1. I know, it was totally the most boring answer, but duuuuuude it’d be so nice LOL!

  4. I love seeing movies in the theater. That will always be the best. There is just something about the whole experience. I LOVE Gilmore Girls and I really hope that we get more! I will never have enough.
    I can’t wait to read your review about that book. It must’ve been some book if you stayed up that late to finish it.
