Fill in the Blank Friday {8} & Giveaway Winner Announced!

Today I'm going old school and linking up with Lauren for Fill in the Blank Friday!

1.  Something I swore I'd never do, but have ended up doing anyway is move into a place without a dishwasher.  We had one for a brief time in the middle of my childhood.  A few years and it died.  My least favorite chore is washing dishes so I always swore when Vito & I moved into our own place, it would have a dishwasher.  But the place we live in? No dishwasher other than Vito's two hands.  Bless that man for doing the dishes.

2.  Something I've always wanted to do is travel to different countries and stay for a month or so to really experience the culture, not just visit on vacation.

3.  Something I have absolutely no desire to ever do is   bungee jump or sky dive. No way. No day  << I agree with Lauren.  I love heights and all but that feeling you get in your stomach when you are on a roller coaster? I HATE it.  So bungee jumping and sky diving? No thanks.

4. The best thing I ever did was go on my first date with Vito. The rest is history.

5. When it comes to trying new things, I am usually in need of some coaxing.  I'm a pretty big chicken when it comes to anything that takes any guts.  Or even eating strange foods.  I love the idea of new experiences but sometimes I just need talked into it!

6. One thing I've never done is lived alone.  I went straight from living at home with my mom to living with Vito.  I admire people who live on their own but I could never.  I have way too vivid of an imagination coupled with a fear of people breaking into my home.  I'd never sleep!

7.  My favorite thing to do is spend a day on the beach with a good book in my hand, sun on my face, and hear nothing but the sound of the waves.

As for the giveaway from Tiny Prints, we have a winner!
Instead of using a website, I went old school and wrote all the names on post its and pulled!  

The winner is Brittany from Boots & Pearls!  
If you aren't already following her, get on that.
Congrats Brittany!
Thanks for all you lovely ladies who entered! 

Happy Friday!!!

All your answers are so sweet! I love that the best thing you ever did was your first date: clearly it was a wonderful decision!

Ahh, I forgot about fill-in-the-blank friday! Definitely one of my favorite features. I love getting to know you a little bit more every time. :)

I am so sorry you don't have a dishwasher. Been there. That's one thing I never take for granted anymore!

I now really, really want to go somewhere warm and lay on the beach and read. That sounds ~so wonderful right now. As much as I love the holidays, I miss summer already.

haha, love that it's moving in without a dishwasher. how funny. and good for you- I would struggle with that.

When I lived alone I wasn't scared of people as I was in a secure building, but I did find that it wasn't the best in the end. I started changing a lot of my usual habits and my sleep got a little messed up.

Oh, I couldn't do without my dishwasher, even when it's just me. I despise doing the dishes. Ugh.

If, no, WHEN you start your travel adventures, promise me you'll visit Norway too! :)
