vmac+cheese q&a

My sweet blogger friend Rashi recently tagged me in one of those fun blogging prompts where you chit chat on all sorts of random things about yourself — always so fun, and I am totally biting. As part of the whole deal with this chain-post prompt, I’m supposed to tag a few other bloggers to participate in the new questions I’ve written below. But in addition to you, Grace, Hitha, Clara, and Lisa, I’d love for readers to join in on the fun too! Feel free to answer the questions I answered above, or any of the ones written below. I don’t think I’ve ever done a post solely on learning about all of you, so this seems like a good time!

Ready, set, go!

1. Your first childhood celebrity crush?

2. Favorite ice cream flavor?

3. The best gift you’ve ever received?

4. If you could learn any new skill, what would it be?

5. Your favorite holiday?

6. The nicest compliment someone’s given you?

7. You win the lottery. What’s the first thing you spend on?

8. The high point of this past weekend?

9. Cat person/Dog person?

Happy Monday, everyone!
