My Dream Job

I would love to get paid to travel all over the world and try new adventures. I would have a TV show and it would be top rated because everyone loved to see where I was going and what new thing I was trying. Pretty much, if I could get paid enough to live and pay my bills by writing reviews of all my adventures on my blog,  that would be a dream come true.

Maybe one day, I will get there.

 What am I afraid of?

I am afraid of drowning. I know how to swim but sometimes I still get nervous because I do not want to drown. Because of this fear, I do not jump off of cliffs into the ocean. I get heart palpitations just thinking about that.

Favorite Quote

First let me say that this challenge is harder than I thought. It is easy for me to share my opinions. But to share my feelings? I am a few days behind.

For my favorite quote, I could not pick just one.

I love Bible quotes because I can relate. The quotes that I picked are not overtly religious and the message is applicable in so many different ways.

I like the words at Proverbs 14:15 because it is important for people not to believe everything they hear. If more people would investigate matters before jumping to a conclusion based off of misleading information, I think the world would be a better place.

I like Proverbs 19:1 because it speaks to how I need to stay grounded and true to my beliefs no matter what. This is my motto especially at work. Honesty is the best policy even when being honest is not easy. Everything will eventually work out and I will have a clear conscience.

20 Facts about Me

Be forewarned: This is going to be a long post.

1 I love to read. You probably already figured that out by the fact that I have so many book reviews on my blog.
2 I am a foodie. This also probably comes as no surprise, especially since I have a feature called “Foodie Friday” on my blog.

3 I am married to a really great guy. We are a prime example of opposites attract. He is extremely introverted and I am extroverted. It might be seem that it would not work, but it works well for us.


4 Amanda Quick is my favorite Victorian era romance author. I love her books even though they follow a very consistent, standard formula: grumpy, fallen-from-grace man and an exuberant, extremely independent woman have to solve a mystery which usually ties into something that happened in their past. While the basic plot would seem to become clichéd, it works because she has very entertaining, witty dialogue. My favorite novels are Dangerous and Ravished.
5 I speak Spanish. I even have a Spanish language review on my blog. There are not many books that are translated into Spanish for me do that often.
6 I like discovering new authors. Not many of the books I read are from the New York’s Bestseller list.


7 I like to play tennis. I started playing 3 years ago and I am hooked. I never was into playing sports as a child, but now tennis is the only sport that can keep my interest. I even like watching the sport. My favorite racquet at the moment is Prince O3 Red MP + 105 Tennis Racquet 4-1/4 Grip – Strung.
8 I volunteer for the local United Way office on the investment committee.
9 I love lip glosses. Right now on my desk I have Plum Mint by CO Bigelow and Hussy Lip Polish by Merle Norman. Both are moisturizing and provide light tint to my lips.
10 I am an office supplies fiend. Sharpie is my all-time favorite brand for markers because they never seem to dry out.
11 I write poetry. You can visit my other blog to see examples of my writings.
12 I love trying new wines. My favorite wine varieties are Moscato, Riesling, and Merlot.
13 I am very loyal. I have been friends with my besties pretty much since our births (we are in our 30’s now).


14 My favorite food is bacon.


15 I do not have children.
16 I have only been married once.
17 I do not have any pets, but I love dogsitting my sister-in-law’s dog and my Nana’s cat treats our yard as her own personal playground.
18 I like painting.
19 I have a handbag obsession. My favorite brand at the moment is Coach, mainly because they have a selection of leather in various colors and have wide, sturdy straps.
20 My favorite color is blue.

Day 1 – 30 day #livelovesimple blog challenge

 

 

 

I am doing this blog challenge in support of my friend and fellow blogger Sarah from Not Your Average Sardines  . Since I have a reviews blog, I will try to incorporate a review within each post.

Your Blog’s Name

My blog’s name is “The Opinionated Woman’s Musings”.
I chose this name because I am so opinionated. For years, I would write reviews for many different websites. Some were free. Others were written in hopes of receiving residual income from web traffic. I made pennies. Since that was the case, I decided to create my own blog and have all my reviews listed here. At least here, I own the rights to all my reviews.
