You Can Ask Whatever You Like...

It's 10:30pm and I'm leaving the house in nine hours to catch a bus down to Akron for the long weekend.

I haven't packed, washed my hair (uh, lately), or even brushed my teeth before bed.

Tonight seems like I'm lazy and a procrastinator the perfect night to solicit reader involvement!

I've never done this myself, but have participated in dozens of Ask the Blogger extravaganzas.

So - shoot. What do you want to know about me, living 'green', my life, my family, my past, my husband, my future, whatever!

And if you don't care about me and are about to click away, STOP! I HAVE A PRIZE!

Are you listening?


Just pretend like you're dying to learn more about me and ask me a question by Sunday, November 30th (the last day of NaBloPoMo) and I'll randomly choose one of you to receive this set of notecards from my new Etsy shop.


Ask away.


  1. For you - why did you start blogging? What is your favorite part about blogging?

    For your husband - When did you know Ashely was the one? What little things do you love that Ashley does for you?

    Have a safe trip!

  2. What were the first changes you made to your life(style) when you decided that living green was a priority for you?

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. Oh this is fun. I'd like to know why you started blogging and your top 5 fav blogs to read..I love meeting new bloggers.

  4. aw someone asked you that.. i just saw that, sorry.. well what about just your top 5 favs and what your fav blog post you've written so far.

  5. I've got two questions:

    (1) What's your favorite Thanksgiving food? (I'm also a vegetarian and everyone always asks me what I eat on Thanksgiving... hello?! Have they not seen all the side dishes?)

    (2) Are you planning on making Christmas gifts again and, if so, what do you plan on making?

  6. When was your first break-away-from-the-pack moment? You know since you're such a crazy compared to your family ;) Is there some defining moment in your life when you realized you were different from your family, or were you always that way?

  7. What inspires you as a designer?

  8. Okay, this is totally weird. Look at my post from yesterday! Haha, great minds think alike, only your mind is way cooler because you have a prize! My question for you:

    Where is your favorite place to go in your city and why?

  9. Not including people, what makes you smile most?

    Can the prize be something from your Etsy store...? I love your designs!!

  10. Okay, maybe I'm behind the times and should know this, but how did you meet your husband? And how did he propose? (I'm a sucker for cute stories).

  11. When and why did you go vegetarian?

  12. I know you've talked a lot recently about the politically-based tensions in your family. Since I have lots of siblings, I'm curious about your relationship with your sisters in general. What are they like as individuals? How are you similar? How do you all differ? What are the things you like to do together? And will you post pictures?

  13. If you could give people just one eco-friendly tip, above all others that people should do, what would it be?

    Also, if you could only choose ONE pandora station to listen to every day what would it be??

  14. if you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?

  15. Yay; I've been wanting to participate in one of these since I did it on my blog. :]

    1.) Who do you admire/look up to & why?

    2.) What is your signature scent?

    3.) Your most favorite food as a vegetarian?

    4.) Are you & your husband planning on having babies soon? (Since this question was asked most for me!)

  16. okay first, please tell me that when you wrote the title, you were singing like TI.. 'you can ask whatever you like'.

    no? oh. okay. me neither then..

    moving onto QUESTIONS:

    1. if you could re-live one day from the past year, which would it be?

    2. describe your idea of the perfect date with your hubby :)

  17. What's your favorite "green" tip? What's the one green thing you do that's hardest to remember and/or do consistently?

  18. man someone already asked how your hubs proposed...that was my question harumph! okay soooo if you could have a dream house anywhere in the world where would it be and why?

  19. I've been dying to know how the CSA worked out. Were the veggies good? Were you able to use them all? Would you recommend it to others?

  23. I've wanted to do a post like this for a while! I think I'll do some sort of a New Years question post/give away, or something to that effect. I'm too stressed out right now to do anything brilliant. :) Oh, and I ADORE that photo, by the way. Freaking awesome.

  25. what a fun idea... I love it! what kind of camera do you have? and, what kind of camera do you recommend?

  26. I'm getting this in right under the gun! What is your most favorite and least favorite thing about being married? What about your hubby do you love the most?

  31. I've been thinking about starting my own Etsy shop...but to be honest, I'm a little scared!
    Mostly that I won't have enough time/creativity to continually make fun/new/interesting things.

    & so my question:
    How did you find the courage to open your shop & how do you keep yourself motivated?

  32. Man...I'm just catching up on my reader and I missed the contest! Maybe next time...


C'mon, leave a comment. They're the best part!
