I didn’t think I could love Blake Lively more until Vogue posted their “73 Questions with Blake Lively” video on YouTube this week.
She loves baking, hot chocolate, and Paris…I don’t know how we aren’t besties already. My favorite part of the video might be the fact that she casually refers to “my husband” like she isn’t married to one of the hottest men to ever walk the face of the planet… #NBD
|Don’t we make a nice pair?|
I wanted to do this post after Vogue asked SJP 73 questions, but I never got around to it. I couldn’t pass it up this time, so here are 71 questions (I took two irrelevant ones out of the mix) answered by yours truly:
1. How are you feeling these days? Life is good!
2. What’s the best thing to happen to you this year? I moved to Manhattan!
3. What’s the best thing that happened to you this month? My blog hit 1 million views!
4. What’s the best thing that’s happened to you today? I woke up with Lily cuddled next to me in the cutest position.
5. What’s the best thing ever? Chocolate or nature. I guess nature since it doesn’t make you fat.
6. What’s your favorite season? Fall.
7. Favorite holiday? I love all holidays!

12. What’s the biggest surprise you’ve ever had? One time in middle school I had a slumber party at my friend Caroline’s house, and her mother told me that my dad was there to pick me up the following morning. I told her that was impossible since he didn’t live in Atlanta, but he surprised me!
