Hi readers! I want to take a moment to introduce you to one of my first bloggy friends, Kathy. She blogs over at Him & Me, but mostly me. She is the youngest of four and comes from an Argentinian family. Born and bred in Los Angeles and still lives there (lucky girl!). Kathy and Thomas got married on April 26, 2014 (just a week after I did!), and they are now the parents of a sweet Chihuahua mix named Lance. Kathy agreed to the name Lance so she won't be forced to name any of their future children that name. They do plan on starting a family in the next year or so, but in the meantime they are enjoying spending time together as husband and wife!
Now on to the fun Q & A section! Take it away Kathy!
When and why did you start blogging?I originally started blogging sometime in 2002. I had graduated high school and sort of moved away for college and somehow I discovered Live Journal (remember those days, girls?). I’m not sure why I started it other than I like to write and express myself. I still have access to that blog and I printed out a bunch of them. It was more like what Facebook is now than a blog, though. I posted small things several times a day sometimes. Since then I’ve blogged mostly on, but had a year or two in which I didn’t.
What's the story behind the name of your blog?I wanted to start blogging again about a year ago while I was in the midst of wedding planning and could not think of a name. I asked for lots of help in brainstorming from my friends and family. Finally we settled on Him & Me (But Mostly Me). It’s pretty self-explanatory – It’s a blog about our life, but really, it’s about me with him thrown in every once in a while.
What is your go-to dinner recipe?My husband is very very picky when it comes to eating, but he has some staples he loves (chicken teriyaki, spaghetti, pizza bites, steak). So usually what I’m cooking is more for me. Currently it is pork chops. I buy the Saute Express form Land O Lakes and use that to cook the pork and then I pair it with sautéed onions and mushrooms – both very low calories. I’ll also add some additional frozen veggies.
Do you think pets are people too? Why or Why not?Hmm, very interesting question. As most people around these parts know, I’m a new fur momma (read more about Lance). I love my puppy, but I am also very stressed out by him. He pees everywhere (I know, my fault) and I guess because he is cooped up during the day he wants to run around at night when I’m sleeping. We live in an upstairs condo so I know my downstairs neighbors don’t like the banging of shoes being played with at midnight. So to answer… I think that he isn’t quite a human to me yet, but I can see it happening once we get past these bumps.
What's the best beauty tip you have ever received?I think I’d say that it was to simply not wear make-up. My mom work make-up when she was younger but grew out of it so I never was really interested. The only time I’ve really worn it was on my wedding day (read about Kathy's Wedding). Make-up ends up causing wrinkles in the long run, and I have enough of those already. The only other tip would be to put on face cream which I always forget to do. Bad Kathy.
What's your favorite board/card game to play and why?Ohh Amanda, you know me well! I have a few. Thomas and I love playing board/card/dice games and have invested quite a bit of money into it over the past year. I love Munchkin, Kingsburg, and Quarriors right now. There is another one we have our eyes on for future purchase.
It's Saturday night and you have two choices: 1. To go out on the town with your Blogging Tribe and have a spectacular girls night. OR 2. To rent movies, pop popcorn, drink wine in your PJs at a Blogger Sleepover. Which would you choose and why?I would most definitely pick #2. I am not an out on the town kind of person – it makes me anxious. I would just replace the wine with cocktails (vodka and cranberry juice is fine) and we’d be set. So when is the big date?
Isn't she great?? I simply adore her and we text and snapchat nearly every single day! You can become her friend too! Here's how:
