6 things with Simply Evani

One of my dear bloggy loves, Nicole over at Treasure Tromp tagged me in a little "6 things" tag (she gave me 6 questions to answer) and I decided to play along!

6thingsQ1SacSunset I live near Sacramento, up in Northern California and this is why I love it:

1. Sacramento is perfectly placed for day trips. We're only 2 hours from the snow in Lake Tahoe, 2 hours from wine in Napa Valley, 3 hours from the beach in Santa Cruz, 2 hours from the city of San Francisco and 2.5 hours from nature in Calaveras. The only downside is that Disneyland/LA is roughly 6.5 hours away.
2. The weather. Hot summers and very little rain!
3. We're an up and coming foodie city!

6thingsQ2Okay, I know I mention her more times than I could count but I really admire Emily from Anna Delores Photography. When I found Emily's blog, she blogged about photography. Then when we met for the first time in person, Emily talked about starting photography as a full time job. Today, she's a well established wedding photographer with a brand new office and tons of satisfied clients. I swear it sounds like I'm a total fangirl over here but I'm so proud to have a friend who started her own business and is living her dream, everyday!

6thingsQ3BestDayEverSurprise family vacation and an engagement? Best day of my entire life, hands down.

6thingsQ4PJChristmasI think my favorite would have to be PJ Christmas day. We celebrate a dressy dinner at our house on Christmas Eve when we open up presents and eat ridiculous amounts of food but the next day we go to my aunts' house and dress in our pajamas for brunch and play with all our toys. Most memorable present? When we got Just Dance for the Wii and we had everyone up dancing! (Picture of PJ Christmas circa 2010)

6thingsQ5 I'm dyingggg to learn how to sew. I finally bought a class on groupon but have yet to go so I'll keep you all posted. I'd also love to learn how to scuba dive and speak another language fluently.

6thingsQ6 I'm definitely at my best when I'm surrounded by friends and family. I naturally prefer social environments (a.k.a. not a fan of alone time) and I'm happiest when surrounded by the people that know me best. I'm also very much a morning person, I need to be surrounded by natural light and I'm in the best mood after I've eaten. If I'm ever alone, starving and in the dark, don't approach me (unless you have food!).

So I'm going to tag these fabulous ladies:
Melissa
Rima
Stephanie
Allie
Jenn
Yi-Chia

So they can pick 6 of these questions:
1. What is the motto/quote that defines your life?
2. Who is the most influential person in your life?
3. Favorite childhood snack?
4. What's your favorite thing to buy that's under $20?
5. What 3 words define your blog?
6. If you get any college major in the world, what would you choose?
7. Where is your favorite place in the world?
8. If you could break one law with no penalties, what would it be?
9. What is your favorite day of the year?

And since I love getting to know my readers, I'd love if you'd also pick at least one of those questions above and answer it in a comment below! 🙂 Answer them all if you'd like!

      Yay! I think PJs for Christmas is so much fun, especially as you get older. It's like an excuse to look like a bum. Haha

    Gosh, I wish I lived so close to so much. Dallas stinks! What a fun post. It's awesome getting to know you better and what a great family you have!

  3. What a fun Christmas PJ tradition! I keep coming across so many great sewing projects on blogs and would love to learn to sew one day too. You'll have to keep us posted on your progress! Thanks for tagging me. 😀 Hope you have a fun and relaxing weekend!

  4. Sacramento sounds like an ideal place for me! 😀 lately I've been thinking more and more about the possibility of moving to the States, somewhere with a hotter weather. it's only a dream so far but... why not? 😉

    I also wanna learn to sew! actually I've just bought a book on sewing... now I just have to use it... someday. 😀

  5. yayy I love this and thank you for thinking to tag me! That picture of you and your family is so cute!

    PS-I sent you an email, but if you'd like to send me a guest post just let me know! I'm away this week, but really I'm interested in working together whenever you'd like!

  6. The PJ Christmas Day sounds like such a fun tradition - what a great idea! 🙂 I can imagine lots of memorable moments and precious family bonding time with everyone in their PJs haha. I'm quite the opposite of you - I think I'm more of an introvert and DEFINITELY not a morning person! :p Can't disagree with you about food though.

  7. Aw my family also has the PJ's on Christmas Also. I Love it! There are many things that I would like to learn but the one thing I would like to learn right now is photography. I got the DSLR for Christmas and I have yet to master it! 🙂
