Climb into Bed and Get to Know Me.



Erin wrote a fantastic post here about blogging and how it has changed so much in the past couple years. Her words hit a note with me since I have felt so underwhelmed with the blog world lately. When I first started reading blogs I was drawn to certain bloggers because they were relatable. I have always been fascinated with other peoples life's and have always loved to read biography's and autobiography's which is why I think lifestyle blogs appealed to me in the first place. Reading other blogs is what made me ultimately want to start mine own too. But over the past year or so I have lost all interest in the majority of these blogs. They are no longer relatable. I love that Erin brought this up because now I realize I'm not the only one that feels like this - just go read the comments on her post. I have struggled to write posts in the past year because I have felt no one wants to see my boring little life in words on a computer screen. But apparently, some do. This is a lifestyle blog after all.. so welcome to my life.


Name. Nancy Elizabeth
Location. Pennsylvania
Work. Marketing assistant for an engineering firm in So. Tier, NY.
Hobbies. I guess blogging.. when I actually do it. Or seeing how many pieces of NY sharp cheese I can shove in my face hole.
Favorite Food. Obviously pizza, but I think everyone likes pizza. Unless they are terrorists.
What Do I Order at the Bar? Depends on the bar... and my mood. So it can range from a margarita to a Miller Lite bottle to a vodka soda with lime. Or if I feel like having a hang over the next day I always reach for Fire Ball.
Favorite Beauty Products. My favorite products have been revolving quite a bit lately but I mentioned some favorites here.
Bed Time & Wake Up Time: Sunday through Thursday I try to be in bed by 10:30 - 11 p.m. at the latest so I'm not a complete bitch the next morning. On the weekends I typically don't go to bed until 12 - 1 a.m. Monday through Friday I wake up at 5:45 a.m. and head out the door by 6:45 a.m. for work. On the weekends I try to sleep in so sometimes I'm not awake until 10 a.m.
Weird Habits. I have to climb into bed the same way every night or else I think something bad will happen. I don't know what that "bad" thing is.. but I'm not willing to chance it.
Odd Foods You Like. Tuna fish out of the can? I don't think most people like that, right?
Dream Job. Working from home - doesn't matter what kind of work. I want to work in sweat pants and watch day time TV and Ellen. I miss day time tv.. mostly Ellen. Or I'd like to work with kids or animals. Maybe I can find something that allows to me to do all three?
Favorite Karaoke Song. I would rather be trampled to death by gorillas than sing in public.
Irrational Fears. Spiders. I cannot stand those evil little monsters. And clowns. Fucking clowns.
Favorite Perfume. Light Blue by Dolce and Gabanna.
Talent Show Performance. I think I'm talentless? I could probably teach myself a song on the guitar if need be.
Favorite thing to do on your iPhone. Watch YouTube beauty bloggers. I am in love with Jaclyn Hill, LustreLux and Manny Mua.
Unwind at the end of the day. This depends on the type of day I've had.. but lately I try to unwind with some sort of exercise. All winter I did workout DVD's but in the spring and summer I go for long walks with my dog. I have to force myself to work out so when I get home from work I change into workout clothes as soon as I walk in the door.
Pet Peeves. If I can hear you chewing, slurping or smacking your gum in your moth, I am secretly praying you choke.
Vacation Plans. I just went to St. Thomas in February so my vacationing is done for the year unless I win the lotto sometime soon.
Dinner Tonight. No idea. But I'm assuming whatever it is will involve wine because.. wine not?
Go Back in Time and Change Something. I used to be one of those people that always thought "everything happens for a reason" but in recent years I've been a bit skeptical of that. Probably because the Negative Nancy rears her ugly head more often than not. Not to get too deep or anything but I would probably go back to the weekend my dad had his stroke - I always look back and wish I had forced him to go see a doctor because maybe he would still be here. But that's another story for another day.
Favorite Disney Princess. Belle from Beauty and Beast.
I've Never. Had a massage.
Favorite candy. I love it all. Every kind. Even black licorice jelly beans. And especially Easter Candy.
Ice cream stand order. Hot fudge sundae topped with nuts and a cherry.
Worst trait. I hold grudges forever.
Best trait. I'm caring.
Height. 5'4"
Favorite accessory. I love scarves and purses.
Last time you cried. Yesterday. Just out of frustration though.
Favorite sports team. I don't follow any sports..

I love to share random tidbits, hope you enjoy!

  2. This was such a fun post, I enjoyed learning more about you. I need all the sleep, I'm so cranky when I don't get enough sleep. It's really bad.

  3. I read Erin's post too and I agree.. It's all about being yourself and 'meeting' other bloggers. One thing we all have in common is that we all enjoy writing..
    I love tuna fish sandwiches.. Or did you just mean cracking open a can and eating the tuna straight from it.. if so you're a freak.. ;)
