One of my favourite things about the blogging community is getting to know people from other parts of the world. I first stumbled on Mae's blog sometime last year and we connected over our love of the outdoors and our time spent in Alaska (fun fact: Mae lived in Fairbanks as a child). After taking a bit of a break, and redefining what blogging meant to her, she is back with Mae There Be Adventure! And I am lucky enough to have her hanging out on T.O. & fro this month. Take a moment to get to know Mae a little better, and be sure you go and say hello!
Hi guys! I'm Mae! It's splendid to meet you all and spend some time on Mar's blog. Mae There Be Adventure is a new blog that is still trying to find it's true niche in the world wide web. I like to focus on the adventure of life, may that be hiking, traveling, or just living day to day life.
Dog, cat or small animal person?
Dog, dog, and did I say dog? I had a cat growing up that I pretty much forced my parents to get me. Lets just say her and I did NOT get a long. The minute a cat sees me they hiss and take off. Don't ask me why. But yeah, dogs. I love them. Especially my own dog. Have you met Opie yet? He's a turd but we love him. We actually are planning on adding another pup to our family within the next year as well! Wooohoo for fur children!
What is you favourite season?
Fall, oh yes. What isn't there to love about fall? Wearing warm clothes, leaves, warm drinks, the smells. Hmmmm just beautiful.
What is your favourite TV show or movie?
Currently I am loving The Walking Dead, I am kind of a zombie weirdo. Anyone wanna talk about their zombie bug out plans? Good me either, keep that locked DOWN! (SPOLIER! Only if you're two weeks behind) Who else knew Glenn was still alive? There was no way they were just gonna let me go out that fast and not make it all emotional. Aside from that I am all about the Blacklist! We are halfway through season 2 right now. I just can't get enough of good ole Raymond Reddington.
What is your favourite meal?
Ya know, I never know how to answer this question. But I will say whenever we go out if Mac and Cheese or Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo is on the menu I am game! But for home meals Kyle and I love making homemade pizza on the BBQ.
If you were stuck on a deserted island, what are 3 things you couldn't live without?
Haha, I'm gonna have to be not fun and realistic here. Water, sunscreen, and food. Yup, I am lame and went completely practical.
What is your dream job?
Ya know, that's a tough question. I'm going to have to say veterinarian or nurse. Definitely nurse. I actually have been considering going back to school to be a nurse. But I don't know, racking up student loans with the plans of being a stay at home mom in the next five years just seems contradicting.
If you won the lottery, what would you do with the money?
Ha! Funny you should ask that. First I would pay off my parents house so they could move up to the family ranch. Second pay off my car. Third buy a house. Fourth pay for Kyle's school. Fifth pay for me to go back to school. Than I don't know after that. I guess stick it in savings? Make bank accounts for future children? Give Kyle's parents money? Not work? Buy houses, fix them up, and sell them? I don't know. That's a lot of power! Hey, that's an idea! I'll hire someone to deal with my money so I wouldn't have to.
Do you have any New Years resolutions?
Well yes I do. Check out this post here. And after you check it out, sign up!
What is your favourite travel destination, and why?
That's a great question. But I don't really know how to answer it. I've really only been on three vacations. Honeymoon in the Caribbean, San Francisco for an A's vs Giants game, and Indy for a game against the Broncos (all hail Peyton Manning). Out of those three Indy was my favorite. But I'm gonna have to say if I were to truly go on a vacation again I would love to go back to the Caribbean.
Any travel plans for 2016?
Sort of. We are moving from Nevada to Montana. Does that count? Other than that nothings planned. Kyle is starting PA school in July so I feel traveling is coming to halt for the next two years.
