NC or TX but I'd so rather.... Monday Questions???

Hey its Monday! Another crazy week underway, right??!!

I completely enjoyed hearing what many of you had to say about relocating! Many of you are completely satisfied where you are and other have aspirations of possible places to live which is great. I figured today I’d to share with you my destinations to move to, and please feel free to yay or neh on them.

There are so many places I’d love to seek out to live in but here’s a few that would be cost effective.

f money wasn’t a factor I’d probably choose an incredible southern west coast shoreline city. I would love to look out my window every morning to see the ocean and tons of sailboats in port gearing up for a day sailing and lounging.
But I’m a total East Coast girl through and through (which is why NC is so enticing)! There’s a scene like that Im sure along the outerbanks! See I love cities, but I love the coast, and I love good ol’ country fun and music so where would I go lol….

Also on the line up I found through “J” ‘s fun blog of Boobies, Babies, and a Blog, is a round of fun Monday questions to help get to know many of you better. The where would you live was a fun way to hear from many of you, and these sounded like some fun questions to read about! I believe you can link up as well if you’d like at the Daily Dose of Reality which does the Monday Minute. (I unfortunately am at work this lovely rainy day and have the stinkin’ restrictions preventing my “McLinky” ability.) I am still going to post my answers today, so if interested let me know your answers or post them and let me know where to find them. Also if interested I believe the idea stemmed from ‘s “Getting to Know You” ( I loved the button picture, cute huh?)

1 - Why did you start blogging? Originally it was to be another source to blog about my Etsy shop and stuff like that, but I’ve found so many other great things to vent and learn about from many of you, that sometimes its my own therapy for sanity!

2 - Who's the one blog friend that you would want to meet most in "real life"? Zura from “Sew Retro Chic” She’s lives in Malaysia so is the least likely I’d run into anywhere, but makes and shares “sew” many incredible items she makes for her daughters and such, and sounds like a truly genuine woman.

3 - Why are you always concerned with losing that "extra 10 pounds" when chances are your husband/boyfriend/friends tell you that you look just fine the way you are? I’m not concerned with losing and extra lbs. People are always telling me to put some lbs. on but with my crazy on the go life style, That’s the one thing I don’t worry about!

4 - What's the one thing you wish guys could understand about you? This will be blunt – Its not that I don’t like s-e-x, its just that I don’t have time for it!

5 - Tattoos. How many do you have and how many are visible when you wear your "everyday" clothes? One that’s not visible. The standard chic lower back tat. When I am laying down sometimes my husband tells my kids it’s a sticker & they try to scratch it off. Nice huh!

6 - What was the best year of your life and why? That’s a tough one – I’d have to say my first year of college. I loved my new independence being on my own and no responsibilities. I ate it all up!!!!!

7 - Name three things you would do if you were a man for one day. Does that mean my husband would a be woman for a day??!!

1. Do all the things that “p” off any wife daily like leaving dirty dishes, socks, shoes, clothes, shaved hair, mail etc laying around the house
2. use a urinal
3. scope out hot chics
8 - What's your alcoholic drink of choice that usually raises a few eyebrows? Probably a large stout beer! Im not into wimpy beer :)

With all this… hope everyone has a good week and stops by for some thoughts!

My husband and I have talked about this for years. We are on the coast right by the beach in CA and the weather is perfect but taxes are high. NC is actually on our list to check out for relocating. Love your blog!! Cant wait to interact with your questions!

I have been to both Austin, TX and Raliegh, NC and both are really fun places. My husband's cousin just moved their family from CA to NC and they LOVE it! I am a Cali girl, born & raised, so we are here for the long haul, especially since we both grew up here & our families are here. Good luck with your new adventure, that is very exciting!


Oh Krissy, I just saw #2 in the getting to know you, how heartwarming that you wanna meet me!

Yes, me too, would LOVE to meet you and other wonderful sewing moms from all over the world, criss crossing through each others' blogs on virtual land. Amazing right? This whole new age of pen pals? In real life I have many friends but very few have the same sewing interest so connecting with you and others through the blogs really, really is special to me.

Hugs to you from the land of eternal summer, Malaysia! :)


Wow, you are brave! I'm afraid to make a big move like that.

My husband is from Idaho and I lived there for almost a year after we got married. I was so homesick. He was finishing up a contract at the hospital where he worked, and then it was back to CA for us!

I love it here, and he does too. I think the only way I'd move states now is if my family was too.

Visiting from the Etsymom forums - Come to the Triangle!! We LOVE it here. We live in Durham. This is a super family friendly area with lots to do and really nice people. Good luck on your search :)
