1. What do you tell strangers when they ask you what you do?
Blogger and book nerd. That usually makes people think that I spend all day in my pajamas, which is kind of my dream.
2. What do you love most about Austin?
October thru March. And that I rarely have to wear socks.
3. What is your favorite local restaurant, and why?
Easy Tiger. I’d make pretzels and beer cheese legit food groups if I had the power.
4. What is your biggest guilty pleasure?
I don’t believe in guilty pleasures. I openly celebrate my love of Naked and Afraid, YA fiction, and Kraft Mac & Cheese.
5. Please name 3 blogs you read and enjoy on the regular.
No way I can name only three. It’s impossible. I’m a glutton for lifestyle and food blogs and I’m bringing back the blogroll.
