236. What was your last major accomplishment?
As far as my restaurant goes, receiving a Michelin Recommendation was the last major accomplishment. Now it's time to start working for the coveted Michelin star. With my blog, I am proud that my Alexa rating has dropped from 1.2 million to 500,000 in the past month. (Alexa ranks blogs by popularity). Both of these accomplishments have taken a lot of work.
237. Through all of life’s twists and turns who has been there for you?
My husband, my mom or my best girlfriend. Most of the time, all three.
238. What or who has been distracting you?
Work!! We have been extremely busy and shorthanded, so I am distracted by covering shifts and training new employees. A few more weeks and I will be back on the motivation track!
239. What are you looking forward to in the upcoming week?
Relaxing in Arizona. Every few months my husband and I alternate vacationing in Arizona. This week is my turn! I am looking forward to enjoying the sun, seeing old friends and exploring the state.
240. Who is your mentor and what have you learned from them?
I don't have just one, but everybody who has acquired something that I want is my mentor. There are several restaurant owners, bloggers, wives and friends who I learn from on a daily basis.
241. What are you uncertain about?
Everything. Is there anything really certain about life? That's what makes life so amazing, that it is unexpected. The one thing that I am pretty sure about is that I will always be a dreamer who has a passion for new experiences.
242. What do you think about when you lie awake in bed?
If I am lucky…nothing! But, most of the time, it involves the tasks I need to accomplish the next day.
243. What’s something most people don’t know about you?
Due to my blog, I am pretty much an open book. But, I think most people don't know that I floss my teeth in the car…EEEWWW….gross! Only when I am alone though 😉
244. When you have a random hour of free time, what do you usually do?
Either work on my blog, cook something or try anything new.
245. What makes you weird?
I think I answered this question best in my post "You Do You…and Let Me Do Me." More often than not, I will forgo the mani/pedi combo to hike a beach trail at Point Reyes with hopes of seeing the spout of an emerging whale. I’d rather talk hashtags (read the Twitter handbook), Iphone apps and investments than the latest fashion. I am a self-professed computer nerd (minus the bow-tie & glasses) and can easily stay home on a Saturday night with a glass of jammy red wine to work on my website, surf the internet or plan my next adventure. I would rather have any new experience than lay stagnant in monotony. If I had to choose between shopping and skydiving, the later would win every time. Big diamonds and shiny jewels don’t impress me, because I know that carats in no way equate to true love. I believe that being content is always nice, but being happy is far superior (there is a difference). Even though I love to strap-on a pair of 4” heels for a night on the town, I think it's just as sexy wearing a ribbed tank, my favorite jeans and flip-flops. I want to take advantage of all that life has to offer, even if it means eating lambs tongue or making a complete jackass out of myself.
