What is one thing in your marriage that you guys do really well at? Something you two could approve at? Good question. One thing we do really well together is a three letter word which happens to release a lot of good endorphins. It’s a little word I like to call fun. We know how to have a lot of fun together, and not just in normal “fun” circumstances but more so in the mundane activities like putting laundry away, getting ready in the mornings, standing in the aisles of Lowes, etc. Neither one of us take life (or each other) too seriously which usually leaves us laughing 98% of the time. Life should be enjoyable and relationships should be no different. On the flip side, one thing we struggle at—we tend to love technology more than each other. Seriously. We can go two hours without saying a single word to each while we are both face planted into our iPhones and iPads. It’s pathetic on a lot of different levels. Who needs sex when you have new tweets to read?!! Or something like that.
How much money does your blog bring in on a monthly basis?
Between $1,000-$2,000 depending on the time and effort given on that particular month. You can see more on the “money making” side of things and how it all averages out in this post.
What is your go to outfit that is an instant confidence boost?
MY BIRTHDAY SUIT. Okay so that’s a slight joke. I would have to say something that is simple yet sexy. Like a cute top that exposes some shoulder or back, jeans, and heels. This outfit pretty much sums up what I am talking about.
Do you work out consistently or are you just lucky and have good genes?
There have been periods of my life where I have worked out consistently. Just a few years ago I was successfully running 3-4 miles before work while also lifting weights on a regular basis. But then life (ie: blogging) happened and it went to trash from there. Every once in a while (okay like every six months) I will go out and run a mile but other than that, nada. This all somewhat sucks because I do enjoy how working out makes me feel and muscles are pretty nice to have around, but for now I will take advantage of the fast metabolism that seems to be doing its thing. I mean, I will start working out. Tomorrow.
When you were a kid what did you want to be when you grew up?
Well shoot. Parts of me feel like I am still a kid trying to figure out what I want be when I grow up. However, when I was a “kid kid”, I wanted to be a bagger at a grocery store. That or the woman at the library who would put the books in your library bag when you checked out. Basically I had a strange fascination with putting anything in a bag. It just seemed so thrilling at the time. I would sit on the couch with bags in hand and just place things in them, you know..for practice. Perhaps it was because of this weird fascination that I now end up in the self-checkout lane daily at the local grocery store? Full circle..it’s all making sense.
Founder and creator of LIY, Erin turned her dream of a hobby blog into a full-time career which she now runs alongside the LIY team! When not in front of her computer screen [with a La Croix or wine in hand] or in front of a mirror taking mirror selfies, you can find Erin spending time on the water, cuddled up with her two pups and husband most likely watching the latest Shark Tank episode, or getting lost in an easy beach read.
The wonderful world of meal delivery services. Also known as, the easiest way to whip up delicious meals in a short amount time, no grocery runs required. I’m sure you have heard of several different brands of dinner boxes, meal delivery services, whatever you want to call it [I prefer “those kits that magically appear […]
If there’s one thing the LIY Team did this Summer [besides go for boat rides and drink seltzers] – it was read. Audio books, Kindle editions, good old fashion physical copies… you name it, we read it. While we went through a few that weren’t so great, we did find a few worth passing along! […]
