Five Hundo

Some time in the past few weeks this little 'ol blog reached 500 followers!
It means so much that so many of you give two shits about  what is going on in my life and it means even more that you devoted followers have put up with me going private, and then back to public and then private again and then back to public again. You rock my socks off!

Crazy to think when I started this blog 3 1/2 year ago I did it simply to keep family and friends up-to-date on the construction of our coffee shop, Coffee Buzz (may she rest in peace). I'm pretty sure my mom and Jason were the only two GFC followers. Now I have over 500 followers and have made real life friendships with amazing people I've "met" through blogging.

Since there's so many new faces, I thought I'd share some fun facts that you may not know about me!
* I love Golden Gopher Football
*I love tall boy Twisted Teas
*I have never been ice skating (despite living in Minnesota)
*I used to own a coffee shop
*When I was little I had a crush on Donatello (yes, the animated ninja turtle)
*I have 1 brother, 1 half-sister, 2 step-sisters, 3 sister-in-laws, 2 step-sister-in-laws, 2 brother-in-laws and 1 step-brother-in-law
*I'm terrified of birds
*I've seen the Backstreet Boys in concert 6 times
*I have know my husband for 28 years
*I despise tomatoes
*I'm super impatient
*Laughing until I cry is my favorite thing in life

What else do you guys want to know? 
Leave a comment with a question asking me anything and I will answer in a later post!


Now I want to get to know you! Along with your questions for me, answer these questions in your comment!

1. What is your favorite coffee shop beverage?
2. If you could send one celebrity to an island to never be seen or heard from again, who would it be?
3. What's one thing that it seems everyone has done, but you have never tried?

Thanks again you guys!

Carolyn said...

OMG! Love this. HAHAHA! So proud that I knew all of this about you.

Here are my answers:

1. I'm a devoted Starbucks fan. I either get a iced venti non-fat caramel macchiato with extra caramel drizzle or a venti passion tea lemonade with two pumps of raspberry syrup instead of classic. Can you tell I was a barista? :)

2. Taylor Swift.

3. This is really hard. I can't think of anything. Maybe because I'll try pretty much everything once? Except skydiving and bungee jumping. That's not happening.

Staci said...

Megan said...

How could we not stick with you through all of that? I love reading your blog!

1)Peppermint Mocha
2)Lindsey Lohan
3)Meeting other bloggers. I haven't found a ton of CO bloggers so it is kind of hard to meet any of them.

Kari said...

Congrats Kristin!!
1- decaf these days :(
2- Snooki
3- haha smoking... I haven't smoked a single thing in my entire life... and i have no desire ever to!

Jillian said...

1. Starbucks green coffee refreshers (I'm more of a tea girl but these are delish and the perfect energizer when I have a huge grocery list (my fave grocery store has a starbucks!)).
2. How about the entire Jersey Shore cast?
3. Partying I've never been into it same goes for underage drinking

Lisa C said...

I love following your blog, you're so relatable and I really look forward to reading it everyday. When you went private (or maybe I just lost track of you for a while) I was like "I wonder what Kristin's up to" haha!!

1-Soy chai tea latte (not a huge coffee fan)
3-I've never read or seen the movies for Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Hunger Games, etc. All of my friend are into them, but I never was.

Katie said...

do I get an award for sticking around this long? KIDDING. I enjoy you sooo much! I'm impatient too...I bet we'd just be hilarious together. Or really scary. Congrats on 500 love!

ajs {of MN} said...

if you could pick any sunny state to live in foreverrr, which would it be?

1. What is my favorite coffee shop beverage? umm... an iced mocha, year round.

2. If I could send one celebrity to an island to never be seen or heard from again, who would it be?

3. What's one thing that it seems everyone has done, but you have never tried? snorkeling while on vaca

Amy said...

I don't follow your blog in the regular sense of following through a certain reader (since I don't have a blog of my own). I do however, have a folder of my favorite blogs that I read and yours is one of my favorites so it's in that folder.

I don't know if I've commented much but I really love your blog. I really enjoy reading your blog posts. By the way, you have a beautiful family.

1. What is your favorite coffee shop beverage?
Normally, it's a iced caramel macchiato(even in the winter) but I also love the pumpkin flavors that are offered in the fall.

2. If you could send one celebrity to an island to never be seen or heard from again, who would it be?
That's a tough one as I have a few celebrities that annoy me. I guess I would choose Kristen Stewart.

3. What's one thing that it seems everyone has done, but you have never tried?
Driving. I'm 26 and I don't have any desire to drive. I'm a very anxious person and the thought of driving causes me a ton of anxiety.

Meghan said...

I wanna know more about your coffee shop!!

& if you could move anywhere in Minnesota, what city/area would it be?

1. White chocolate mocha with a shot of mint, on the rocks or hot depending on the season!

2. Lindsey Lohan

3. I have not met another blogger!

Christa said...

#1: nonfat caramel macchiato (iced or hot depending on the season)
#2: take Taylor Swift and Kim Kardashian far, far away
#3: I've never tried a Twisted Tea!!! I intend to change that sometime soon though ;)
