April Guest Blogger: Katie S.

Our Guest blogger for April is Quimper Club co-founder Katie Sledge. I recently wrote to Katie and asked her to tell us a little about herself and this was her reply.

In true blog style, getting to know me a bit from A to Z

A - Age: 40
B - Bowls: I have so many! I am always drawn to them even thought I don't need just "one" more.
C - Chore you hate: Cleaning showers/tubs
D - Dog's name: Willow an English Bulldog. I wanted a French Bulldog but had to meet husband half way (he wanted a Boxer!).
E - Essential start your day item: Coffee, I actually look forward to it before I drift off to sleep...
F - Favorite cheese: Goat Cheese
G - Gift Wrapping: Love it - my favorite part of Christmas is wrapping not shopping.
H - Home: Will always be California although I can't imagine ever moving back.
I - Ice Cream: I always get some sort of chocolate variation
J - Juice: I live on Crystal Light.
K - Kid(s): Two under the age of 5.
L - Lead Awareness: I feel passionate about this issue and kudos to France who has been way ahead of the game! They started to restrict lead use in the 1800's.
M - Mountains: I love going there but I hate the windy roads as I still get car sick.
N- Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand is my favorite white wine at the moment.
O - Organizing: I think I am more organized then I really am.

R - Reading: I love, love to read - I have already read about 20 books this year.
S - Sushi: Favorite eating out food.
T - Topiaries: I'm always drawn to them.
U- Umbrella: Own an Alexandra Sojfer from Paris (a gift from friend which I find too pretty to use, and I am just nervous I would leave it somewhere.).
V - Vegetarian: Every once in a while I go "veggy" only to crave a rare roast beef sandwich
W - Ways you run late: Feeling the house has to be perfect before I leave.
X - Tic Tac Toe: I always opt to be an "X"
Y - Yummy food you make: My husband says French Onion soup and my children would say Pumpkin Loaf.
Z - Zoo membership has gotten me through many a tough days with the children.
