Its an AWESOME restaurant by our house, they serve amazing coffee (Bumper Crop), great original cocktails (Did someone say Mojito Mimosa?), incredible pastries (Enter my favorite Maple Scone that will MELT in your mouth) and night time music with comfort food (best dish I've ever had - Lobster Macaroni & Cheese with house salad). The owner, Celeste, is our neighbor and the sweetest woman in the world. Everything about this place screams "home" to me. Having dinner in front of their giant fireplace is one of my favorite memories with Patrick.

39. Which store would you choose to max out your credit card? Target, White House/Black Market, or Nordstrom Rack.
40. Like your job? Sigh, I would say that I like my job. Am I sure I want to do it for a long time? No. But I never am... I am currently the Credentials Specialist at Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center... Which basically means I am the person that makes sure your doctor is really a doctor... I check his license, education directly from schools, board certifications, DEA License, background checks, malpractice insurance, peer references, and even check to be sure he is good at what he says he is... If he claims he specializes in reattaching limbs, we want to be sure he is good at it! Haha! And we have had occurrences of bad doctors! I've denied physicians positions on staff, I've suspended physicians for bad behavior, I've taken physicians off staff for no malpractice insurance. Which makes for a considerable amount of stress, for a peacemaker like myself. But I basically protect patients at the most basic level... Which does feel good. However, I'd like to be a business owner someday. Patrick and I have a 5 year plan to pay off our debt to begin to set up for a family business.:)


  1. If you come to Victoria, we must go have coffee! I know a great little coffee shop you would love!

  2. Seriously, you're adorable. I do agree, Zips is totally the best fast food restaraunt! Love me some fries and tartar sauce =) And I love the picture of you and Patrick, adorable.

  3. Hehe! I don't have my eyes closed! ;)

  4. This is so fun to read and I love Zips too! Whenever I am in Spokane, I have to have fries and tartar sauce. It's a meal for me....nom, nom, nom!!!

  5. Lmao, I just realized I didn't change #32 from Tenicia's answer!

    Mmmm zips, that might be a post comp meal after I'm done competing for the year. I haven't had zips or fast food in years!
