Meet Betsy!!! And.. A Giveaway!!

  It's that time again! Time to meet another awesome individual in the world of blogging, Betsy from Musings Of A Museum Fanatic. So after you get to know her a little here from our Q&A post, make sure you head over to her blog to get to know her even better.

1 - What inspires your blog?
Hmmm that's a good question ... and a vague one haha.  I had been thinking about starting one for a while and had done the whole online journal thing way back in college but need a good kick in the pants.  I started out hoping to have it be an outlet for my love of museums and other related things but as we all know life gets in the way.  I don't think it's a bad thing that I've somewhat changed the focus/inspiration.  People change!  Hopefully I can get more of that inspiration going in 2014 though : ) 

2 - What can we expect to see on your blog?
All sorts of different topics from cultural type things to recipes to DIY to reviews.  I have so many different interests and loves why limit myself?

3 - What is your fave TV show and why?
These days I tend to love a little bit of everything from Real Housewives of everything, Chopped and Iron Chef, Project Runway and whatever full season of something i can find on Netflix.  The two shows that I try and watch every week when it's a current season is NCIS & NCIS:LA.  I used to be a big fan of shows like Law and Order and CSI but for some reason they got to violent and bloody more often, which I don't like but the NCIS shows are witty, good guys usually win fun with usually very little of the gratuitous blood and guts.  Plus Tony and Dieks are so cute!

4 - What television character can you most relate to?
 Not gonna lie this question gave me some trouble!!  Life changes so at various times I feel like I relate more to some characters more than others.  Right now I can definitely relate to Jim and Pam from the Office and their seemingly never ending issues with Michael haha.  Let's just say I can relate to upper management craziness at the moment!!

5 - Tell us one of your fave travel stories.
Most of my travel stories are pretty tame, we go we see everything we come home.  Probably the most interesting one was the school trip right after my senior year of high school to London.  Since 18 was legal drinking age we decided to imbibe and ended up a little less than sober.  Our hotel was a converted row house and the rooms/floors were all wacky and were definitely not in nice straight floors.  Let's just say three less than sober girls had a lovely time trying get from the "4th floor" back down to our basement room.  There may have been the three of us sitting on the steps up to a random out of place room for a good half hour!

6 - What is your dream vacation?
My dream vacation would have to be something like an 80 days around the world type trip.  Maybe not by balloon though!  There are so many place in Europe, Africa and Australia I want to see sooo much on each continent that it's hard to pick one.  

 Isn't Betsy fabulous?! Well, I have another surprise for you this Monday morning. I am part of a group giveaway to win some pretty great stuff. Make sure you take the time to enter below:
