It’s REALLY rare for me to post on Wednesdays these days.  It tends to be my “day off” during the week.

It’s even more rare for me to post a survey on my blog, but when the The Trendy Trainer nominated me to participate in this sisterhood of blogging series, I just had to participate!  So… here we go!

I love all the ocean colors… the gorgeous blues and greens that just remind me of the place I love to be most.  I need to be in that beautiful Caribbean water some time soon!

2. Favorite Animal: 
Hmmm… I don’t know that I have one.  I’m not a huge animal person.  Oh wait… I like this guy!

Grumpy Cat | No Thanks to Cake

C’mon.  You love the Grumpy Cat too.  I may or may not resemble him in the morning.

3. Favorite non-alcoholic drink: 
Water.  I’m all about the clear stuff… still.  No ice, just that hydrating goodness.

4. Facebook or Twitter:
Can I pick Instagram?  I have become such a HUGE fan of Instagram (as many of you know.)  And, I’d rather post there than anywhere else… after that I pick Facebook, and then Twitter.

5. Favorite Pattern:
Well… I’m going to interpret this a little different and assume you’re talking about knitting patterns.  If that’s the case, then I’m loving this pattern.

Knitting Headband | No Thanks to Cake

I’ve been making a LOT of them over the past few week for some of my favorite people.  I use the Malabrigo Rasta yarn… just gorgeous.

6. Favorite Flower: 
Tulips.  Every time, tulips.  Have you ever gotten close enough to smell them?  Heavenly…

7. What is your passion?

Over time, I’ve found my passion is really around helping people find joy.  My goal is always to leave people a little better than I’ve found them.  With a new idea, a new reason to smile, or a new piece of inspiration, I love doing this.  It’s just fun!  

So… now it’s time to nominate a few more ladies to participate.  I decided to pick a few new friends from Instagram that follow my page, leave me comments and like my photos… You ladies keep me motivated.  I appreciate it!  xoxo

  2. Thanks for the shout out! I love following you on Instagram, and I also am a huge fan of ocean colors.

  3. Love this and I think I recognize that picture from FitSocial? Caroline was wearing that scarf and I coveted it. A lot.

    PS – My bridesmaids carried tulips at my wedding. I heart them too.
