getting to know you + a giveaway.


a blog is a curious thing.

inevitably, the reader knows much more about the author than the author knows about the reader.

i'd love to change that.

so here's my attempt...

how about a little game of 20 questions.

ready?

go.


one :: beauty or brains
two :: butter or margarine
three :: white or wheat
four :: heels or flats
five :: short hair or long hair
six :: skinny jeans or anything but
seven :: night owl or early bird
eight :: stand out or blend in
nine :: lipstick or chapstick
ten :: the book or the movie
eleven :: city or country
twelve :: dine in or take out
thirteen :: diet coke or diet pepsi
fourteen :: pine trees or palm trees
fifteen :: dark chocolate or milk chocolate
sixteen :: spring or fall
seventeen :: mac or pc
eighteen :: cup or cone
nineteen :: vacation with kids or without kids
twenty :: inbox or mail box


everyone who participates by leaving a comment will be eligible for a little surprise giveaway.

one lucky reader will receive a total blog makeover courtesy of yours truly!

who's excited?

i am!

winner will be announced this friday {3/5}.

have fun!

p.s. i'll reveal my answers on friday...which i'm sure you're all dying to know!
