I signed onto the Great Interview Experiment and it was great fun. First I get to read someone’s entire blog… even the archives, with a “You’re not a stalker” card in hand, signed by Neil. Then I can concoct what ever questions I want and Fashionista will answer. I went to town writing questions thinking that she could choose, but she answered them all. Lucky us!
You can still sign up too.
If I was coming round for dinner what would you cook? I’d probably start by asking you what your favorite cuisine was, and then try to devise a menu from there. Most recently, I had a co-worker of the husband over and his favorite meal of all time is “Shrimp Fettucine Alfredo”, so I made that, and apparently he thinks it’s better than what they make at the Olive Garden. (I think he doesn’t eat out enough!!)
What is your favorite new ingredient of the moment? Right now, I’d have to say Mascarpone Cheese. Did you know you can use that in just about everything? You can use it as a dessert ingredient or you can use it in a savory sauce…that stuff is amazing!
What did you have for dinner last night? Last night, I had a chicken breast, smothered in BBQ sauce, coated in bread crumbs and oven baked until it was nice and crispy-(Sort of an hommage to BBQ and Fried Chicken but combined)-with some sweet corn drizzled with melted butter with a side of homemade smashed potatoes!
What is the best about local food in Nebraska? Home grown beef–hands down.
I have a #1 rule of blogging that is basically that if I write about someone, ANYONE they will probably read it. Has that held true for you as fasionista that you know about?â€”I donâ€™t think so for the most part. I tend to write more about things or my feelings or boring day to day activities, and less about people (unless they are wearing really bad clothing, and then I try not to name names). If I do write about people, I try to keep it positive, so that if they do read it, they wonâ€™t be offended.
The 80s look appears to be coming back howâ€™s that feel?–It makes me want to rip out my hair and lament the fact that this is happening. The 80;s were bad, mmkay? Bad hair, neon colorsâ€”oh the humanity!
You are omnipotent but only in the styles arena you can instantly make something a super trend or wipe it away. What do you choose? I would get rid of tapered jeans. No one should ever venture outside their home in a pair of tapered leg jeans unless they want to look like an ice cream cone.
Is there something that is classic Omaha fashion that outsiders wouldn’t know about? Do you partake? I donâ€™t think Omaha really has fashionâ€¦let alone a fashion that others donâ€™t know about. People around here are pretty laid back when it comes to fashion, for the most part. The only thing I have really seen them get excited about fashion wise is Nebraska Husker Gear, and that is one thing I canâ€™t partake in. We are BC supporters here!
What is the best thing about living in Omaha? What would you change about it if you could? The small town feeling in what is shaping up to be a real city. Only in Omaha, can you see a sign above a cart corral in a shopping area parking lot that says â€œThink of your neighbor and the damage that could happen to their carâ€. The only thing I would really change about Omaha would be to move it closer to the ocean. My husband and I were both born in New England and we miss that area, the scenery, the mountains, the oceanâ€¦.
I maybe moving to Omaha what do you recommend for me to do to get the real feel of the city?– Spend some time down in the Old Market for the unique shopping experience, go to a ball game at Rosenblatt (Home of the Menâ€™s College World Series!)and visit some the amazing museums we have here ( The Jocelyn is my favorite!)
If you could instantly transport your whole family back to living in the time you grew up would you? If not then is there a time you think of as “the good old days?” What would you miss most about now? No, I donâ€™t think there is a time that would be â€œthe good old daysâ€™ for me. I enjoyed my past and the time that I grew up in , but my family has so many more opportunities now, than what existed 5 years ago, let alone 10-20 plus years ago.
Is there anything about you that doesn’t fit in Omaha? Where would it fit better. Would you move there if you could? I am a totally New England gal. I love the ocean, the mountains, forestsâ€¦.and Omaha doesnâ€™t really have those things. Iâ€™d love to live in New England againâ€¦perhaps someday after retirement!
Has blogging changed you life much? Not really, I do it mainly to keep myself sane and to just jot down things that are passing thru my head.
What topics do you steer clear of in your blog? Any you wish you had more time/courage/insight to blog about that you don’t? I donâ€™t think there is anything really that I wonâ€™t write about. Iâ€™ve talked about my marriage, my kids, my friendsâ€¦itâ€™s all good.
Tell me about a recent moment of joy. â€“Every day that I wake up with family around me is a moment of joy. Sure, itâ€™s also a moment that I NEED coffee or my head will explode, but the joy is there nonetheless.
You’ve got a day to yourself with no obligations â€” what do you do with it?â€” Hmm, shop for a while, read a new book in a bubble bath, and take a lazy nap afterwords. Eat some of my favorite foods and then just relax on the couch.
What is your theme song? — Some days itâ€™s Life ainâ€™t always beautiful by Gary Alan and other itâ€™s 8 Easy steps by Alanis Morrissette.
Who will play you in the movie of your life. Drew Barrymore. If only I looked that good!
What is the perfect modeling job for you? One that lets me use my kids in the photo!
Thanks Becky! it was nice getting to know you a bit.
I was interviewed by MaÃ®tresse here. I had to think for days about who to shrink and carry around in my pocket and am still changing my mind.
I have been reading a bunch of the interviews. I question I loved was asked by TimeCzar
Silly question: You wake up one morning to find yourself on a beach, tied down by midgets. Act fast: in one sentence, what would you say?
I said “How about some sunscreen?”
Well what do you say?
