ABC's of Elizabeth: The Mustard Ceiling

I am thrilled to have Elizabeth from The Mustard Ceiling as my guest today.  She has many, many talents from interior design, custom blog and graphic design, DIY and so much more!  She recently announced that she and her husband, plus two darling dogs, are making another move out of state.  I can't wait to see what she comes up with for her new house!

Hi Style for Living Readers! My name is Elizabeth and I blog over at The Mustard Ceiling. Marianne asked me to stop by today to participate in her fun ABC's series. Let's get started, shall we?

Age: 31

Best vacation: This is a tough one! It is a toss up between our honeymoon in 2008 and our cruise in February, 2012.

For our honeymoon, we spent two weeks in Europe. Four days in Rome and 10 days on a cruise traveling the coasts of Italy, Greece and Turkey. It was all incredible. I absolutely fell in love with Rome and would love to live there some day.

In February this year, we took a 7 day cruise through the Western Caribbean and it was awesome too. Completely different than Europe. This vacation was focused more on adventure. My favorite experience was ATVing through the jungle in Cozumel, Mexico. I told Alfred that it beat any of the excursion's we went on in Europe :). I love mountain biking and ATVing was a lot like mountain biking....only faster.

Chore you hate: Laundry. Fortunately, Alfred doesn't mind doing it so he has taken over the task.

Dogs or cats: Dogs

Essential part of your day: My morning coffee. I cannot do anything until I start sipping on that first cup in the AM.

Favorite flower: Tulips

Greatest film: Sweet Home Alabama

Height: 5'3"

Instrument you play or have played: I briefly played the Clarinet in 6th grade and took a few lessons on the guitar in high school. I lost interest in both very quickly.

Job you'd love to have: writer for a shelter magazine or an interior photographer

Kids: Nope, just our pups, Jack (8 year old lab/great pyrenees mix) and Gracie (2.5 year old golden retriever)

Live: in Clovis, NM for a few more months. We're moving to Rapid City, SD this summer!

Mom's name: Sharon Kay

Nickname: Liba. My older brother gave me that nickname when I was younger. He is the only one that calls me that, but to this day he still does.

Overnight hospital stays: I've been lucky....not one (I hope I didn't just jinx myself)

Pet peeve: Dirty dishes in the sink and crumbs on the counters. Those two things are like nails on the chalkboard to me.

Right or left handed: Right

Siblings: I have an older brother, Chris and and younger brother, Adam. I am the only girl and I love it.

Time you wake up: 6:30

University attended: University of Charleston, a small liberal arts college in Charleston, WV

Vegetables you dislike: Eggplant. I really wish I liked it, I love the color!

What makes you run late: Getting sucked at the computer, trying to get one more thing accomplished for the blog or on a design project before I run out the door.

X-rays: None that I can think of at the moment.

Yummy food you make: Chicken Chilaquiles from Martha Stewart. It is so easy and has a lot of flavor. I throw it in the crock pot in the AM and 8 hours later...voila, it's dinnertime.

Zoo Animal: The zebra. How can you not love an animal covered in black and white, with stripes all over :).

Thank you Marianne for having me today! I had so much fun putting this post together for your readers.

A big 'Thank You' to Elizabeth for being my guest today!  Love that you have 2 dogs, they are adorable and look like they'd be good to snuggle up with!  I also played the clarinet, only for a few years, I think I might actually still have it somewhere in my house!  I think we all get sucked into the computer most days.  So hard to break away, isn't' it!?
