You guys know I'm a sucker for a good blog survey! My friend Lo from Travel the Unbeaten Path tagged me in the Sisterhood of the World Blogging Award. We connected because she's a vegetarian and a Gator! Her site follows her travels with her young son. It's great!
She asked some fun questions, so I thought I'd give them a whirl!
1. How has blogging impacted you and your life?
I've had some pretty big life changes in the past year and a half. Leaving a long time career at the TV station, was the catalyst to work full-time on this blog. Now this site is a huge part of my life and I love it. I've been blown away by the support, friends, community and opportunities Running in a Skirt has brought me. I would have left the station with or without the blog, but it has made the transition so much easier.
2. What's the favorite post you've written?
Oh! That's tough. I'll try to think of them in terms of the categories on my site, because that's how my mind works.
My absolute favorite is probably 50 Life Lessons from My Mom.
I'm also terrible at picking just one of anything-- sorry 🙂
3. How do you find time to juggle it all, blogging, working, having a social life?
I've learned so much since leaving the grind of the TV world and one of them is you can't do it all. At least I can't. Trying to do everything made me sick. I do the best I can at any given moment and sometimes things fall through, but that's ok.
4. What is something special you do to treat yourself?
Hello mani pedi! My favorite splurge afternoon.
5. Do you take spontaneous trips or are you more of a planner?
I'm more of a planner, although recently I've taken some last minute trips. But even when I'm last minute, I plan exactly what I'm going to do on the way there 🙂
6. Where was your last trip to?
I went to Hope Town Bahamas in August.
7. Where is your dream vacation destination?
This is a HARD question because I want to go EVERYWHERE! Topping my list right now is Australia, Galapagos Islands, Manchu Picu, African safari, Netherlands, France (country side), Spain and Greece. And just for good measure I'll throw in Tahiti! I say dream big-- no harm in that!
8. Weirdest fact about you?
I was Pluto at Disney World in High School. But if you grew up in Orlando, that actually wasn't that uncommon.
9. Knowing what you know now, what advice would you give to your 18-year-old self?
To slow down and do things you can only get away with when you are 18. You have the rest of your life to pretend to be a grown up.
10. Are you a light packer or a I-should-take-everything-just-in-cast type of gal?
Embarrassingly bad bring-it-all packer. It's bad. I joke that I'll change.... but I probably will not. Unless you ask me on the last day of a long trip with heavy bags, I'm totally fine with my bad packing skills.
Thanks for stopping by today! Tomorrow I’m so excited to share my Pumpkin Pie Baked Oatmeal.
