  9. The verified Britney Spears was my first follower on Twitter
  10. I've lived in New England my whole life (Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island)
  11. I hate introductions and sharing interesting facts because I never know what to say


  1. What is your favorite color to wear? Black! Especially when I'm feeling plump
  2. What is a hobbie that you wish you had? I wish I could speak different languages (is that considered a hobby?)
  3. Best part of your day? Having a lucid dream right before I wake up, wasting an afternoon in sweats while catching up on my DVR recordings, pouring that first cup of coffee in the morning, spending with my friends and family... There are so many great parts of every day, I can't pick just one!
  4. Favorite beverage? Coffee in the a.m., Moscato in the p.m., and Diet Coke in between
  5. What is your favorite season & why? Fall. Everything about it is so whimsical!  The weather, bright leaves, spiked cider, carving pumpkins, the cozy yet fashionable clothes. Plus Halloween is my favorite should-be-a-no-school-holiday.  Oh, and my birthday is in October so I may be slightly bias ;)
  6. Do you have a hidden talent that most people don't know about? Ummm...
  7. What is your go-to junk food? ICE CREAM!!! All kinds of ice-cream but especially Ben Jerry's Half Baked
  8. Favorite vacation spot or memory? Australia a.k.a. the most amazing five months of my life
  9. What does your ideal saturday night look like?  Depends on my mood.  Either a crazy girls' night out at the bar or sometimes I prefer a cozy night in watching movies, sipping wine, and painting nails.
  10. What is a guilty pleasure of yours? Online shopping! Or I guess it'would technically be considered online window shopping since most of the time I don't actually buy the stuff. I just add it to my virtual shopping cart
  11. Are you a morning or night person? Both! I don't sleep well. I'll be lucky if I can get 5 hours in a night.... I'm guess I'm not an afternoon person.
