1. What brings you the greatest joy? A beach day with my two favourite boys. Sun, waves, sand, some digging and a good book. 

2. What are your vices? Chocolate. Coffee. Wine.
3. What is on your nightstand? A lamp, two books (The Happiness Project + A House In the Sky), and probably a scattering of bobby pins.
4. Do you have a secret talent? Remembering song lyrics really, really well. And Magic Eye puzzles. Why couldn't it be something useful?
5. What is your greatest indulgence? Eating real butter. I read somewhere that margarine is basically plastic - I'm OK with a couple extra fat grams as opposed to a chemical shitstorm.
6. What should every woman try at least once in her life? Going out to eat by yourself. Some people have huge issues with eating alone at a restaurant, but sometimes, you just want to eat at your very favourite sushi spot and no one is available. What's a girl to do? It can be a fantastic people-watching ability. Plus you order what you want off the menu, no pressure to split a crappy appetizer or order a salad when you really want a steak. 
7. What makes you laugh? People falling down. Toddlers swearing. I can't help it, it's funny. Eli said "bullshit!" the other night and Pete and I were dying. And then we were like, that's not nice. It's funny in the privacy of your own home. 
8. What is one thing people would be surprised to know about you? I have blood sugar issues. I'm not diabetic but I have been known to pass out at random times.
