Today, the sun is shining, I'm dressed before 9am, and the house is relatively clean. Who knows what could happen?! I'm determined to get out of the house today and do something, anything!
Before we go, and while Noah is eating breakfast and watching Mickey, I thought I'd answer some questions asked of me by Keizra from 27th & Luxe! She nominated me for a Liebster award! Because I've received this in the past and have passed it on, I thought might be fun to just answer her questions! So, if we were friends (and many of you are!), here are some things you might be interested to know...
1. What’s the most exciting place that you’ve been to?
Hands down, New York City. You can read more about the "escape" here! I've been to quite a few amazing places, but NYC just has something to it that the others didn't!
2. What’s your favorite restaurant?
Carrabbas! I could eat their bread and fettuccine, and drink their blackberry Sangria, every single day. I'd also probably become a drunk and gain 100 pounds, but I'd be fat and happy! I kid.
3. How did you come up with your blog name?
I really just wanted something that sounded catchy and that was easy to remember. A friend helped me come up with Hey Kelsea Rae and as soon as I heard it, I knew I loved it!
4. What’s your favorite clothing store?
This is a hard one because I don't shop that much. If I had to pick, I'd have to say Anthropologie. It hasn't been until recently that I've been willing to try different styles and feel confident enough to wear them, and I feel like Anthro has so many pretty options for mixing your wardrobe up. We've been on a "pay off our student loans" budget, so I'm actually looking forward to having money to get a new outfit every now and then once we're done!
5. What’s your hair routine?
6. What’s your favorite nail polish color?
My favorite color to wear is a light, light pink/nude. I think it's close to the natural color of my nails but dresses them up a little with some shine and a finished look. I think it's so classy and goes with pretty much any occasion.
7. What do you like the most about blogging?
I really enjoy having an idea in mind, carrying it out well in a post, and the feeling I get when I can proudly hit "submit". I also really enjoy meeting other bloggers and getting feedback!
8. What is your dream job?
I am doing my dream job! I'm staying at home with my children (child for now!) and plan to home school them. There's nothing else I'd rather be doing at this point in my life. However, I do have a dream about what I might want to do once my kids are older and either in high school or college. I'm very passionate about supporting women through birth and would love to eventually be a midwife.
9. What is your biggest pet peeve?
There are SO many! That's probably not good, is it? To be annoyed so easily? Sheesh, get over yourself! My biggest pet peeve is probably the way other people chew. I can't stand it.
10. What do you do for fun?
I love to spend time with my family and we do a lot of fun things together. If I had an ideal "fun" day, it would involve being out all day, grabbing meals at fun restaurants, seeing a movie, grabbing lunch with friends, taking a hike, taking Noah to a museum or park, checking out a Farmers' Market, and exploring small downtowns. And of course, not being afraid to capture it all along the way ;).
Thanks again to Keizra for nominating me! Noah and I are off to do something productive and fun!
