you asked, i've got answers

so remember a week ago when we played a little Q&A? well here are the answers to some of your lovely questions. once i reach a hundred more followers maybe i'll just have to do this again. it was so much fun reading all of your comments and emails. so here we go, here are the top ten questions:

1. what's your favorite book?
i feel bad to admit this but i’ve never been an avid book reader. for the ones i have read though: the alchemist, to kill a mockingbird, the giver (yes, i am one of those kind of people that actually enjoy the books we are forced to read in school), the twilight saga (duh), and eat pray love. it takes a lot to hold my interest, so if there are any good books out there send them my way!

2. what do you love most about your husband?
oh this is a hard one because my husband is pretty much the coolest person ever. but i would have to say that the thing i love most about my husband is how much of a goober he is. we could sit around for hours laughing about who knows what. he’s the best pick-me-up when you’re feeling down, and pretty much overall HI-larious! 
*also, see video above.

3. WA or UT? which do you like better? 
i am a seattle native (sammamish to be more specific) born and raised. i moved out to utah recently while my husband finishes up school at BYU. obviously i am more partial to the northwest, just because everything i know and love is out there. but i think i haven’t been out here long enough to give it a fair shot, so check back with me in a few months. 

4. what’s your motto?
this ones funny to me, only because a lot of the time i feel like i have a motto, but i never really stick with it. my motto at the moment, however, is one i stumbled across on a blog recently: “start each day like it’s your birthday.” how simple would our lives be if we just woke up each morning feeling special and on top of the world. i’m definitely going to start working this into my life. that, and “let it be” for those days when everything just doesn’t seem to be going our way.

5. top 5 makeup bag items (clearly lipstick must be one of them!)
1. lipstick (obv.)
2. chapstick (got to keep those things hydrated)
3. mascara (because your eyes deserve some lovin’)
4. bronzer (i like the face to have color, not too much though)
5. brow pencil (nothings better than a strong brow)

6. where's a place in the US you've never been but are dying to visit?
so cliché but i’ve never been to NYC. dying to visit central park and live a day in the life of carrie bradshaw.

7. why are you so cool?
oh, well, why thank you. i’d like to think that i’m pretty cool. i guess you could say that my momma raised me right. that, and i try to surround myself with really cool and inspiring people.
  
8. what's the one item in your closet you can't live without? the one thing that when nothing else is working out, you reach for? 
i’m really not that fashionable, sorry to disappoint. but when all else fails i reach for my jeggings, comfortable t-shirt and flip flops, combined with the messy bun, mascara and red lip stick. and now my snazzy glasses. i’m all about being comfortable.

9. what did you want to do as a kid?
oh gosh, when i was younger i seriously wanted to be mary-kate and ashley olsen. full house was boss. i was such a little diva, i used to put on plays all the time with my neighbor. at 5, my mom caught me practicing my oscar winning speech in the mirror…no joke.

10. what was your favorite part of your wedding day?
my favorite part of my wedding day was being surrounded in an intimate garden setting by all our closest friends and family and sharing with them this very special time in our lives. that and being sealed for time and all eternity to my lover boy. OH, that and the awesome caricaturist we had. he was a big hit. 

got anymore questions for me? let me know! i love answering questions!

  7. you both are SO young and lovely, guys!

    i love the utah landscapes, in fact i've never been to the mountains though i lived in a place called El Cerro (spanish word for 'hill' and the neighbourhood i lived most of my life which is 135mt (443 ft.) high!), the highest hill in my country is only 1.388 ft. high, no snow up there, and i climbed it!! I want to go to any snow peek someday :)

    also i am an avid reader, and i'd recommend some books to you but most books i love are from spanishspeaking (writing!) writers!

    xox!

  40. Wait, I wasn't done, and we'd sing, "Brother for sale, only 50 cents", and we'd put a for sale sign on our baby brother. Tell me you remember their song? If not, this is embarrassing. Ha!
