11 more things you may not have known about me

I have been tagged a few times the past weeks. I was awarded with the "tell me about yourself" award by the lovely miss Bonnie from Mini Me Style. Emily from Life, etc tagged me in her 11 things post and so did Faith from Sweetened style. Thank you so much girls! I already have done an 11 things post in the past, and I got a lot of positive comments on it so I thought I'd do one again! I needed a break from all the outfitposts that passed the revue the last couple of weeks. Here it goes!


1. What is your favorite pet?
I love bunnies. There was a point in time where I had 13 little bunnies! My dad had build a bunnie run in our backyard where could play outside and they even had their own playhouse. The run was huge, I tell ya! Right now I don't have any pets. We do have family dogs though, 2. This is Dasha, a German Shepard. isn't she cuuuuute!? She's also my fave photo subject, haha. I like to call this photo her "Are you there again with that camera? duuuude, You are annoying!"-face.

2. What would be your dream home?
As some of you might know I am/used to be a fervent The Sims player. I build my dream house every day! I would love a large backyard with a fish pond. And a  willow tree too! And my house itself would have a walk-in wardrobe (duh!) and a heat system under the bathroom floor, haha. I'd love a one of those white houses, inside and out. Full of little teasures from all over te world, because you all know too that I LOVE to travel!

My friends new tattoo
3. Any tattoos or plan to get one? What's the story behind it?
No, I don't have any. There's something about the idea of getting one that scares me. They are for like... forever you know? I think tattoos can be really pretty, some of my friends have one (or more)! I believe they must have a meaning, though. A friend of mine got one a week ago that says "Our love never dies ". It's for her little sister.

4. What is the best story you have about a relative?
You should read our lovestor, it's pretty good. Especially the part where Kenneth said I'd never be better than (his now ex-)girlfriend! See who's been dating who for three years now, huh?

5. Favorite pizzatoppings?
Barbeque chicken! Who's with me!? Now I want some, thanks for this question. Haha.


6. Who was your date to the prom?
Kenneth was. And all my classmates and their boyfriends were too! We went out for dinner beforehand, and every photo they took of us that night was crappy. Why do party photographers often use such strong flashes?

7. What is the best thing you can cook?
I live with my parents, I'm only 19 you see, so I don't get to cook my own meals very often. I would like to change that though. And I would also love to learn how to bake pies! Other cherry pie lovers out there?

8. Favorite quote?
When I was a gamer geek back in highschool (there, I said it!) my favorite quote was "The future was with fate, the present was our own" from Sir Conan Doyle aka the writer of Sherlock Holmes. Right now I don't really have one. I see a lot of quotes on Pinterest but I haven't come across one that really is me.

9. I just gave you one million dollars and you must spend them in the next 24 hours. What would you do? 
I'd buy a beam machine. Then I'd beam myself to NYC and shop till I drop. Then on to ikea to buy a closet for all those new things and then I'd beam myslef to the bank to give what's left to my parents and family.


10. If you could play any instrument. What would you pick?
The piano! Without doubt. I have a friend that plays a little, his fave song in Viva La vida from Colplay. I always get the chills when I hear someone play. Kenneth actually has a piano, and used to play. Now the only song he can still do is Brother Jacob.

11. What made you start a blog? 
I have been building websites and playing around with html and css ever since we got internet about 8 years ago. I loved to have my own place on the Enet and shared it with my friends. Why I started this particular blog? Well, I suppose you can say that was because of Dorien. I never told her this before, haha. I made this blog in june 2009. Back then it was named Go Home My Dear and I had no idea how to gain an audience and what to write about. Then I saw Doriens blog in a magazine feature and it totally hit me. I wanted to blog about fashion too! I deleted my archives and 256 posts later, here we are.

  1. I love these kinds of awards/posts, it's interesting getting to know someone this way.

    None of my friends like BBQ chicken pizza, and I think they're certifiably insane haha, so it's nice to see someone who agrees with me.

    Also, I love the mature attitude you have towards getting a tattoo, it shows a lot of responsibility which is lacking these days for most people.

  6. Yea! I'm so glad you did this. :) We used to have bunnies when I was younger, too, although not quite as many. BBQ chicken is also one of my most favorite pizza toppings, and that's amazing that you've been programming since you were 8! I didn't even have an email address until I went to college. :-S Great post, lady!

  20. I love these kinds of posts!! I want a tattoo, but I'm much too scared to get one. Forever, is a long time, it's forever.. I can't seem to find something I love and have to have, and a location I'd want it. I told myself that if I decide i get one, I'll think about it for an entire year, and if i still want it, I'll get it. and BBQ chicken.. YES!
