About Me in Three's

August 23, 2017
Having seen this post floating around, I thought it would be fun to add in my answers & in the process hopefully share some fun facts about myself! I always love learning more about the bloggers I follow & hopefully you do as well! 
Three favorite foods
Sushi - duh!
Lobster mac & cheese
French fries 
Three things I'd never give up
I was having a hard time with this, so I asked Gary what he thought I wouldn't give up! He's spot on!
Three favorite cocktails
Frosé - I think that has been pretty well established at this point 😉
Moscow Mule
Three favorite movies
Legally blonde - hands down my favorite movie! I also did a post on why Elle Woods is a great role model! 
Devil Wears Prada
The Wedding Planner
Three favorite simple pleasures in life
First sip of coffee in the morning
Getting a manicure
Getting into bed after a particularly long day
Three things that are always in my car
I don't have a car!! I take the train or walk! We use Zipcar when we need to escape the city!
Three things I always have with me
Portable Charger 
Three things I regret doing / not doing
I try not to dwell on things that I've done / not done because as cliché as it sounds. I wouldn't be at this point in my life if things hadn't worked out the way they did. I truly believe everything happens for a reason - if something happens that isn't necessarily great we might not know why at that moment, but it will all come full circle! 
Three most recent places I traveled to
California - up the Pacific Coast Highway
Three most often used makeup products
Mascara / Lash Primer
CC Cream
Three things that make me cry
Thinking about my grandmother's and not being able to see them as much as I want to
When I get really scared, like not knowing if something / someone is going to jump out at me. Clearly this doesn't happen very often! When Gary and I were dating, he went to use the bathroom while we were watching a movie & came back out and scared me so badly that I actually cried. He felt so terrible, he's never tried to scare me again!
Oddly enough, motivational videos really make me cry and reading inspiring quotes
Three things that make me smile / laugh
When Gary puts on any type of accent
Any type of baby or baby animal video 
Watching Carpool Karaoke  
Three places I want to visit inside the US
Jackson Hole, Wyoming
Three places I want to visit outside the US
Iceland - headed here in October
Three blessings in my life
My amazing husband & family
My health
The ability to live the life I want
Now it's your turn! Do we have any similarities? 


  1. That story about Gary scaring you, so sad but also hilarious lol. Carpool Karaoke is our favorite!! We can just stuck in such a rabbit hole of those videos.

  2. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!! I am so glad you did this!! I knew your #1 would be Rose and then a Bellini and then MM, is that bad I knew all 3 of your cocktails? ooooh, my middle son and husband try to scare me all the time..I.DO.NOT. Like it!!! lol I love that you live the life you want!!!

  3. Loved learning a little more about you! Yes to first sip of coffee, mania, and getting in bed after a long day!!

  4. Getting into bed after a long day is definitely one of life's simplest pleasures!!! And I love Carpool Karaoke!

  5. I love the movies you listed..especially The Wedding Planner! I think after I watched that movie the first time I was so inspired to be organized haha! And yes to everything you listed as a simple pleasure. I'm drinking coffee early this morning and there's nothing better than laying down in your bed after you've had a rough day!

  6. This was such a fun post- I may have to play along too! I'm definitely with you on the first sip of coffee being one of the simple pleasures in life. And I totally didn't know that you didn't have a car- I guess you don't need one in the city but being a FL gal I never think about those things! :) And We could totally have a movie marathon b/c your favorites are mine too!

  7. Sushi tops my lists of favorite foods too! How exciting that you are headed to Iceland. I can't wait to see your travel guide on it because they are always so good.

  8. First, I am obsessed with those rings on your thumb in the pic with the coffee! Jacksonhole is one of my favorite places, it's SO pretty and feels like you aren't even on this planet any more. And yes to getting into bed after a long day! Or any day haha! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  9. I was just about to say I love that thumb ring you are wearing! I loved reading more about you. Poor Gary he must have felt so terrible making you cry like that! Oh and that first sip of coffee there is nothing better!

  10. Ha, I'm with you on the three things I could never give up! I also love frosé, sushi, lobster mac & cheese, getting into bed after a long day, and that first sip of coffee in the morning. If you ever come to Austin, I'd be happy to give you some recommendations. (The first being, come in spring or fall so you don't melt! Haha!) It's such a fun city!

  11. Omg girl I wish we could sit and talk about all of these! I enjoyed Gary's "what you can't give up" I just asked John that question, but answered TV myself haha Love your answer to the regrets question! Yes to carpool karaoke too! Such a fun post!
    Amanda @ Cupcake N Dreams

  12. We have so many similarities! Yes to all of your favorite movies!! And the first sip of coffee :). What a great post idea! Loved getting to know more about you :)

  13. I LOVED this post--I might have to steal it and do it this Friday or next!! Always love learning more about my blogger buddies! You and I both have the same mantra of trying to live with no regrets! AND it seems like we have very similar taste in drinks:)

    Rosy Outlook

  14. Love Legally Blonde too! I saw part of The Devil Wears Prada last week, and realized I don't know if I've ever seen the entire movie. I don't like being scared either, and I'm sure you're glad Gary learned his lesson early on, haha.

  15. Such a fun post! Austin is one of my favorite cities and Seattle is on my list of places to visit too!

  16. Super cool post ! Loved reading, and I hear you loud and clear when you say your simple pleasure is that first sip of coffee in the morning ! Have a wonderful day Biana !

  17. How did I NOT know you didn't have a car? that is soooooo cool! Loved learning more about you. <3

  18. This is such a cute post! I also love sushi ;-) !

  19. Great post! I loved learning more about you. I to believe everything happens for a reason and one should never have or dwell on regrets. Life is too short.

  20. Sushi and frose always make me think of you!

  21. Ah we're soulmates - love his! We have the same fav foods, movies and can't live without items for sure!

  22. yes love this! all the sushi and froze please! and you must go to austin and seattle. two of my fav cities :) happy wednesday girly!

    xoxo cheshire kat

  23. What a fun idea for a blog post! I may steal it for next week. :) loved learning more about you!

  24. Such a fun post! I'll co-sign your favorite movies, I could watch Legally Blonde and The Devil Wears Prada over and over and they'll never get old. That first sip of coffee in the morning is heavenly, and yay for all the upcoming travel! And girlll you'll love Portugal! Lisbon was our favorite stop on our trip across the pond a few years ago. It was almost like the European version of San Francisco with a GG Bridge replica (designed by the same architect), lots of hills, and even cable cars <3

  25. No surprises here! :) I think we should plan a couples trip to Jackson Hole! I want to go there, Lake Tahoe, and Montana (sensing a mountain-y theme much?!). XOXO, R

  26. This is such a fun post! We are on the same page with movies. Those are my 3 favorite too! I very rarely watch a tv show or movie more than once, but I can (and have!) watched Legally Blonde about 100 times! Happy Wednesday!

    A Blonde's Moment

  27. I love this post! It was fun to learn so much about you :)

  28. The ability to live the life I want! Yes!

    I'd also like to see Iceland.

  29. This is such a fun post idea! Need to make a note to do this myself. :) I had no idea you guys didn't have a car, I thought you had at least one! So jealous of your upcoming Iceland trip, it looks beautiful!

  30. I'm with you on the movies.
    & yep... that first sip of coffee in the morning... heavenly.
    I knew you had to have some sort of seafood in your fav foods ;)

  31. I love these posts so much, and I definitely need to try and do one soon! I still haven't tried frose, but as soon as these babies are out, I'm going to jump on the bandwagon. I'm also so excited for you and your Iceland trip and I can't wait to hear all about it!

  32. I don't guess I've seen these posts but I love it and I loved getting to know you better as well. The things you couldn't give up are probably the same for me. LOL

  33. I love these types of post. I love getting to know bloggers more.

  34. I loved reading this! We have alot of similar answers. I def love sushi and lobster! You really got me wanting to try Frose! I get so emotional watching sappy and/or inspirational videos on Facebook! Also stories about abused/homeless dogs and they end up having a happy ending (I don't even bother putting myself through the sad ones!)

  35. I sooo enjoyed these! OMC you MUST go to Austin! If you like BBQ, that is THE place to see, plus the music/art scene. I think you and Gary would LOVE it! I need to start carrying a portable charger, need to but never do. Like you, I MUST have some sort of makeup with me (mascara, liner, concealer and lipstick) are MUST HAVES!! xoxo catchatwithcarenandcody

  36. I LOVE your favorite movies! The Wedding Planner is definitely in my top three too! I told B that I'll probably be watching that this weekend because he has to work.

    Also, that is so funny that you don't like being scared. I'm not a fan of it either, actually. And I HATE being tickled. Brian knows not to tickle me anymore. Haha.

  37. Oh I love this. That first sip of coffee really is good isnt it! I love that living in big cities means you really dont need a car and that a car is more of an inconvenience than a benefit. For me, without a car Id be 100% more stressed but also totally wish I didnt have to drive everywhere ... the struggle. So cute the dating story.

  38. love love love this!! now you have me thinking about getting in bed already and it's only 1:30 LOL

  39. Yay! Loved learning more about you! I need to try your famous frose and luckily I've seen some local restaurants now offer it on their menu. Might become my new favorite brunch drinks. I can imagine how hilarious it is listening to Gary putting on different accents. lol

  40. I loved reading this post! I feel pretty awesome that I knew some of these already, haha! I'm not one to cry easy, but I can't watch movies with animals for some reason, they make me emotional, so Aviah will not be watching Lion King or 101 Dalmatians for a while, lol! That's so funny about Gary scaring you on one of your first dates, haha, poor guy must've thought he blew it, haha! Thanks so much for sharing, girlie; I really enjoyed this post! Happy Wednesday!



  41. I am so with you on the regrets, everything you do leads you to where you are. If I had made different decisions I would not be where I am. And the first sip of coffee, yes!

  42. Ohh I love this post! It's so fun! I may have to play along, too. :) I don't like being scared either. Kyle tried scaring me once and (out of reflex, I swear) I accidently hit him. I didn't give him a black eye or anything, but I definitely shocked him right back, haha!

  43. I love these posts! I also scare very easily - and I get so mad when people try to scare me!

  44. Omg you are going to Iceland?! That is SO EXCITING! It is #1 on my list and I hope we are able to go next year!!

  45. This is such a fun post - totally brings me back to the way blogging used to be :) Now I think I might steal it from you! I also totally second your love of manicures, bellinis, and my portable charger - haha!

    Meg, Borrowed Heaven

  46. I love these posts! So fun to get to know you even more. :) I've never had a frose before. I hope they're still a big deal next summer so I can try one! So excited for your Iceland trip! You definitely need to visit Austin (and let me know if you ever plan on it because we might be able to stop by. My little brother goes to UT.)

  47. I could relate so much to this! I can't wait for my morning cup of coffee and I adore sushi!!
    Have an amazing day!
    xx Kris


  48. Your food, drinks, things you couldn't live without - so similar to me! A portable charger is a must to always have with you! Such a fun post!

  49. Aww, I love this!!! And I'm pretty sure your three movies are in my top as well. I'd have a hard time deciding because I'd want to throw in The Holiday and A League of Their Own!

  50. I can't wait to hear all about your Iceland trip... and hopefully check out some frose next month!!

  51. Love this! We almost have the 3 same favorite foods! Mine are sushi, crab, and french fries haha! But I do love lobster too! Yum!

  52. Love this post! Sushi, lobster mac & cheese and a Moscow mule are my favorites too! I can't wait to hear about your upcoming Iceland trip!

  53. Love this post idea...I may or may not want to steal this idea now! :)
    It was crazy reading this to see how much we have in common - the love of movies, French fries, motivational videos/quotes and the hate of being scared. THE ABSOLUTE WORST!!

  54. I loved learning more about you, babe! This is such a great idea.

  55. OK I seriously feel like you and I would be best friends in real life! I think I would answer these questions exactly the same. Everything single one!

  56. Yes I love all of this girl! The three places in the US you want to visit are all amazing! I may have to do one of these posts myself. I love getting to know more about people this way.

  57. Sushi and fries are on the top of my food list as well! I have never had lobster mac n cheese but it would probably be up there too if I had! You are so right about that first sip of coffee being so amazing in the mornings. Its like...oh yeah....that's the stuff!!! I didn't know you guys didn't have a car! Birmingham is sooooooo not a walkable town so it is so weird to me that some cities don't require them.

  58. Love this post and learning more about you. I am with you on the fries, they are my guilty pleasure. I like to consider myself a fry connoisseur. Also, legally blonde is the absolute best, have you ever seen the musical? Hilarious! Have an awesome weekend!

    xx, Elise

  59. This is a fun way to get to know you! Fries would definitely be on my list too, and I love your movie choices!

  60. Your list of places to visit outside of the US is almost identical to mine!! I also love your movie choices. I don't know how you survive in Boston without a car, though. I grew up here, and made it til age 18 just taking the bus and T...then I got my license and first car and everything changed:)

  61. What a fun post idea! I love your favorite foods - we have the same favorites!

  62. Oh my gosh, this is such a fun idea! I may have to do something similar. Legally Blonde is one of my favorite movies as well :)
