7 things about maisie

Maybe you wondered about the gal running this blog… or maybe you didn’t… but here’s seven random facts about me, cause I couldn’t come up with more!

Here’s some very basic knowledge. I am a mom and wife. I have four wild things. I live in the USA. And I get antsy if I don’t move regularly.

1. I have an unnatural obsession with coffee. I experiment regularly with my espresso maker, and aspire to open a coffee shop when my kids are all grown (*sniff* I love being mommy).

2. I’d love to go back to college and major in 19th century British Literature. I pester the husband about this, but really, I’m not going to “use” it for any income… so I just read.

3. I craft. a lot. sewing, and knitting.

4. ❤ classic movies, Some Like it Hot is an all time favorite.

5. Gamer. xbox specifically. (mostly with the husband, but I've been known to put a game in now and then on my own doing)

6. I'm incredibly possessive of my name. I'm named after my great-grandmother, and the name (and person) is very special to me, I hate seeing it become more mainstream on teeny-bopper tv shows.

7. I'm head over heels in love with Chicago, I'd live in the city in a heartbeat, but husbands job isn't located there. I also love the west coast, and the forests which is why Millwood/South Port is based in Washington, but some of the actual styles of buildings are from Chicago.

  1. I also love being a mom.

    My kids say I’m not human till I drink my coffee. My daughter wants to open a coffee shop/bakery one day.

    I used to cross-stitch quite a lot.

    Even if you aren’t going to earn money with it, the British Literature sounds like a great idea! Maybe you could combine it somehow with the coffee shop idea.

    Thanks for telling us about you!

  2. What a fun idea! It’s nice to know more about you.

    Chicago was my favourite city when we went to the US last year! My sister was always dying to go there, so we added it to our itinerary but I wasn’t expecting to love it as much as I did. It’s a fantastic city and the people were all so lovely as well.

  3. Thanks everyone. 🙂

    Francesca, if you have an idea on how to combine British Lit and a coffee shop, I’m all ears! 😀 I tried cross stitching when my youngest was an infant, and it stressed me out. Definite props to those that can do tiny needlework!

    Aww, Carla, that’s awesome that you loved Chicago. I grew up just a skip and a hop from the city, and no matter where else I live, it just doesn’t compare. We are working our way out to the west coast (Oregon/Washington) slowly, but surely, and maybe, I’ll love it as much. Time will tell.
