I’m copping out today, guys.

I haven’t been super great about churning out regular content on the ol’ blog lately…or really at all since I started my job back in January, if we’re being honest. I do enjoy documenting my life via photos in my Weekend posts, but that’s not really all I want this blog to be about. As much as I’m sure y’all love my pictures of dodgeball/pre-run selfies/mimosas…

Couple that with the fact that I’ve started taking on a lot of writing assignments at work that tend to include blog posts, newsletters, social media, and the like…sometimes I just need to veg out and not write write write the same kinds of things as soon as I get home.

That’s why when I saw Janetha posted this “Would you rather” survey a couple weeks ago, I had to jump on board. Would You Rather is always a fun game, and I enjoyed filling this out! Of course, it sat in my drafts pile for weeks while I found the time to actually fill it out and pick pictures to make it slightly less boring… 😉 But it’s here now…enjoy!


Speak another language or get a higher degree?

I speak two languages as it is (well…my French is pretty rusty, but I am/was fluent at one point!) and I would LOVE to speak another. I always felt like a lame-o when I was in Europe and said I could *only* speak two languages…

the last time i was in paris. i miss it so!

the last time i was in paris. sigh!

Have a beautiful singing voice or be a fantastic dancer?

This is hard…I would consider myself only marginally talented at both now. I think I’d rather stay mediocre at both than choose just one! I am ALWAYS singing though. I can’t be in a car and not sing along with the radio…It’s a problem fun quirk of mine 😉

Be a CEO of a huge company or run your own small business?

Run my own small business. As an employee of a small business that has only 10-13 employees (depending on how many interns we have!), I have seen the power of what a tight-knit, focused group of people can accomplish together. Plus I get frequent access to the great mind that is our CEO — she is much more approachable than a CEO of a huge corporation would be!

Fly like a bird or teleport?

Teleport. Always about saving time 😉

Eat only sweet food or only salty food for the rest of your life?

Salty without a doubt!!

Do yoga or lift weights?

Lift weights. I have barely done any yoga, and I actually really liked what I did, but I lift weights a couple times a week so it feels misleading to say I prefer something that I never do 😉


look at how skinny my legs were before i started running >3 miles and actually doing lunges/squats/lower body work! ha.

Be a SUPER fast runner or be SUPER strong?

Hmmm. Probably a super fast runner. No reason for this one…it just sounds more appealing 🙂

Have 8 kids or no kids?

HAHAHA 8? No thank you. Why have 8 kids when you could have 8 cats for a fraction of the cost? 😉 (I’m kidding, I hate cats and actually love kids. But still…8 is excessive)

Have a small, older home with character or design a big brand new home?

Design a new one. My style is much more modern than classic/vintage.

Watch the Today Show or Good Morning America?

Neither really…if anything, I’d prefer the Today Show because I love everything NBC (I drag my NYC friends to Rockefeller Center every time I’m there because it’s like my favorite place in the universe)


Watch only sports or watch only BRAVO?

Sports!! I will watch any sport on TV — regardless of whether I care about who’s playing, it’s a great excuse to hang out with friends, food, and drinks.

case in point: friends watching the USA vs Portugal game

Cook a romantic dinner at home or go to the nicest restaurant in town?

That’s a tough one. I do love cooking at home, and nothing beats staying in with a bottle of wine or 3…but as I always say, “food tastes better when you don’t have to make it yourself” haha.

Drink beer or wine?

Ahhhh so hard. I think I’m gonna have to say wine. It pairs better with food IMO and it isn’t as filling as beer. Y’all know I love me a good IPA though!

Eat cookies or eat cake?

Cookies. They’re small so you can eat more…….duh.

the best cookie i make every year around the holidays

Have only brothers or have only sisters?

I only have a brother and always kinda wished I had a sister, but I do love my brother and I’ve always gotten along with men — I had all boy cousins growing up on my dad’s side!

my one and only best bro

Go to Africa or Asia?

I feel like I would find Asia so hilarious on account of all the Engrish. But I would like to go to both eventually!

Eat sweet potato fries or regular fries?

all of these pictures were taken at the dodgeball bar…of course.

Own an SUV or a sports car?

I dunno probably a sports car? I’m a small person, I feel like I should drive a small car…

Have a personal chef or a personal trainer?

Personal trainer. I love cooking…and I push myself way harder in group fitness classes than I do when I’m working out at the gym by myself! I need the motivation.

Sleep for 9 hours every night but no coffee, or sleep for 6 hours a night and have coffee?

9 hours, no coffee. I’ve never really been the type of person who needs caffeine to function…I do, however, suffer if I don’t get my beauty sleep!

Read a book or watch a movie?

Movie…. Such a non-intellectual, sigh.

Live on the east coast or west coast?

West siyeeeeeeed! I’m sorry, let’s please pretend I never said that.

Have your toenails painted or your fingernails painted?

Fingernails. They are ALWAYS painted. In fact, I’m painting mine as I type this post.

Go to the beach or the mountains?

Beach beach beach. I miss it so! I was spoiled in Santa Barbara….

i. miss. college.

Answer one (or several) of the Would You Rather questions in the comments!

  1. I love posts where i get to know people a little better ! and if you come to paris one day i would love meeting fellow bloggers in my own town. anyway i’ll answer one question today ( and maybe type a survey post later if that’s ok :)). i’ll answer the have a personal chef or trainer ! and i would defintely prefer having a personal trainer than a personal chef. I love cooking so no need for a chef. but i really need some exercise motivation at this time of year so go personal trainer !

  2. Oh I love these kind of posts!! Hmmm… To answer a few – I’m with you on ALL the fries, my toes are always painted and I actually think I’d rather have 8 kids than no kids. I’m crazyyyyy 😉
