It’s safe to say that today’s BTS girl would be one of my besties if we lived anywhere near each other. Hilarious, witty sense of humor? Check. Love of a good cocktail? Check! Likes to read books? Um, CHECK (wait til you read more below…). I’ve been so happy to get to know Sabra, who writes the blog The Lonely Wife Project, over the past several months. She strikes me as someone who you’d always want to invite to a party — super fun, yet down to earth, and bright. I like that combination. Read on to learn more about this fabulous gal and be sure to stop by and say hi on her blog!
New York — Can you believe I havenât been there?!
London â Can you believe I havenât been there either?!
Greece â I want to go to Greece while I can still appreciate drunken partying and island hopping, which means I need to go immediately. I donât have much time left.
Budapest â Itâs my brotherâs favorite place in Europe and I trust my brotherâs taste.
Japan â Because my husband really wants to go there and he gets to pick our next travel destination.
Iâve read 113 books since I got my Kindle last February so I will likely be reading way more than just four next year, but I will read the following in the next couple months or so:
What Alice Forgot â Actually Iâm reading this now. Itâs about a woman who suffers a head injury and forgets a decade of her life. That is my favorite type of plot line. See also Sophie Kinsellaâs Remember Me.
The Paris Wife â I believe this is on every femaleâs 2011/2012 reading list.
The Picture of Dorian Gray â Sometimes I read a piece of classic literature to make me feel smart and cultured.
Bel Canto â I just finished reading Ann Patchettâs Truth and Beauty (highly recommend), so Iâm definitely giving this bestseller a shot.
Catherin the Great: Portrait of a Woman â Royalty intrigues me and this particular royal sounds damn intriguing.
I want a house with a huge kitchen, an outdoor entertaining space and a chubby baby.
1 – Find a way to work from home and for myself. Iâm currently working my tush off in the corporate world so I could get all the experience necessary to start my own consulting company.
2 â Write a novel. This is actually my goal in life. I have a basic plot and one sentence. Good start.
Is it weird that I dream of having a backyard? Seriously, thatâs all I really want. We live in a small townhouse with a small patio, but thatâs what I get for living by the beach in San Diego.
Last year my husband decided to go back to school to get his MBA. Sometime between his full-time job and full-time class schedule, I got lonely. My blog serves as my entertainment. It also forces me to cook and take photos of my cooking.
Iâm inspired by my blogging besties. Erika, Irene, Elizabeth, Naomi, Victoriaâ¦I could seriously go on and on. Without their creative/gorgeous/hilarious blog posts and emails, my brain would be dull. Also, Iâm inspired by magazines and my husband who works incredibly hard and still maintains a positive attitude. I hardly work and Iâm mostly negative so he balances me out perfectly.
Iâm pretty proud that I married my high school sweetheart and that weâre still married and still best friends and still madly in love. Thatâs a feat if you ask me. Iâm also pretty proud of what Iâve accomplished so far in my career. Itâs hard being a young woman in the corporate world and Iâm dealing relatively well.
My couch. Itâs right next to my coffee table where I like to keep a bottle of red wine and my magazines. Sometimes I move to the fireplace if I get cold. Also, cuddling with my animals helps me re-charge.
I started blogging in August 2010 and Iâve posted five days a week almost every week, with some exceptions. Thatâs a lot of posts. Although, itâs hard to always come up with something interesting to share with my readers, I feel like I would suffer a huge loss if I wasnât part of the blogging world. Iâve made some friends and I have a creative outlet. It’s pretty good.
Thanks for having me Victoria! This was fun.
