Q & A Part 1.

Food & Travel

What is your favorite cookbook?
How to Boil Water: Life Beyond Takeout. It is so appropriate for us, right? And it has all the greatest recipes from all my favorite Food Network chefs.

Go to "healthy" snack?
Edamame. I eat it like candy, for real.

What is your favorite Sushi?
I love the salmon skin roll but my favorite has to be the California Roll. I love me some crab meat and I know the best place!

Where would you like to live if not in Michigan?
Houston, Texas. I joke that I already have the big hair so I would fit in perfectly. Besides, it's close to the beach and I have always wanted to be a southern belle.

What is the best place you have visited and why?
Hawaii. I mean seriously, how could you not fall in love with this view?

I also fell in love with the culture, the weather and the people. It truly is paradise and I can't wait to go back someday!

Do you plan on living close to the beach since you love it so much?
Yes! We hope to move somewhere near the ocean in the future, it has been a dream of ours since we got married.

Can I come visit you in Michigan? Never been there!! =)
Yes, please! We'll drink Vernors and eat Saunders on our ice cream.

Education & Work

What did you study in College?
I studied Family Community Services which is basically family psychology. I loved studying the many dynamics of families and dreamed of becoming a marriage counselor, but as the program progressed I realized this was not the career for me. I could not handle a couple getting a divorce while I was counseling them and I hate disagreements so this was not for me.

Do you have a Master degree?
Yes, I have my masters in theological studies. I am a huge theology nerd and I have the bookcase to prove it.

What do you and your hubs do for work?
I am an event coordinator for a Christian school so I plan fundraisers and alumni events. Garth is an insurance analyst.

Why can't you drink adult beverages?
Ah, I knew this would come up! I've been trying to avoid it (sorry!), but basically the school I am employed at merged with another Christian school (non-profit) that prohibits employees from drinking alcoholic beverages. I don't love it, but I do love my job.

Do you and Garth have the jobs you want to have forever?
To be honest, no. While I love my job, it's a lot more administrative than I would like and the pay is not fabulous. As for Garth, he enjoys what he does but his dream is to own a web design company.

If you could have any career imaginable what would it be?
Wedding coordinator. I love weddings and event planning so this would be perfection.

*Stay tuned for tomorrow's topics - our relationship & marriage.*

Risley said...

fun! I love reading more about my blog friends!
PS: I was a wedding coordinator for a few years at a Country Club! So much fun but NO weekends!! I stopped when my hubby got his job {which is M-F} cause we would have NEVER seen each other.... but I am still obsessed with all things wedding! lol

M said...

I love edamame too!

Happy Daily said...

Ohhh, now I really want to go to Hawaii! Great questions and responses!

The Rest is Still Unwritten said...

Houston, Texas? Girl, you're crazy. But you can come visit me anytime!

Pamibelle said...

Love these kinds of posts! Wedding coordinator would be an amazing job.

Kassie said...

Yay! I loved finding out more about your job and career and everything! I had been wondering about the no-drinking rule, glad you answered that! lol. :)

I'maNolaGirl said...

I would love to be a wedding and events coordinator too! How much fun would that be!

Ps - this was such a great idea for a post!

Love love love this idea! I'm already looking forward to tomorrow. Thanks for sharing!

Mrs. Newlywed Giggles said...

I want to be a wedding coordinator too!

J.L.S. said...

Oh girl, Houston? Hahaha I am a little biased but the beaches in the carolinas are so much better! And you can still be a southern belle... especially in Charleston, SC. The south west just can't compare to the south east... but again, I may be biased! :)

Jen Caputo said...

fun answers, great getting to know you better! Glad you answered the no-drinking question. I still think it's amazing that a job can dictate the legal activities you are allowed to participate in on your own time though!

Lauren Kelly said...

You had me at edamame, haha!! I could eat those all day long and with soy sauce, haha!! :)

The Pink Chick said...

I love this! It is so fun learning more about my sweet blog friends!

Brandi said...

What a fun post! Loved finding more out about you.

I have an idea you might ponder, you can open your wedding planning business and have your hubby design the website! :) Or have him design your blog and maybe start him some business on the side that he can build from!

Jane said...

I need to check out that cookbook. Seems awesome!

Taylor @ Jimmy Choos and a Baby Too said...

I loved reading this! If you ever move to Texas we can hang out with our big hair!

Meagan@Megs7827 said...

Yum edamame! I need to get some!

Katie said...

Oooh such a fun list! I am loving reading more about you. Can't wait for the next parts!

Newlywed Next Door said...

Fun stuff! I love these Q&A posts.

My hubby works in insurance as well -- as manager on the claims side. It is NOT his dream job. He's thinkin' of making a career switch, but what that is, he doesn't know!

Tara Gibson said...

Lucky in Love said...

christi said...

nice to get to know you better!

CJ said...

Fun answers. I love the pic of Hawaii! I shld visit it once.

Jules said...

This was so fun! I love edamame and California Rolls are my favorite. Hawaii is also the best place that I’ve ever been and I don’t think that anyone can really understand unless they have been there. It is paradise and I loved everything about it.

Your job sounds nice and I think it’s great that you went so far in college. I bet with your experience in your current position you could open your own wedding planning business one day :)

I would pick Houston too!
