Not Your Typical Q & A

Happy Tuesday Darlings! I've been chatting with one of my sweet sponsors for this month, Samara, and we came up with a fun little Q & A to help y'all get to know her better! So y'all pull up a chair and check out Samara's interview and then pop over to her blog to say hi will ya?


1) Tell us a little about yourself & your blog. 
Hello! As you may have guessed from the title of my blog, my name is Samara. I am 25 years old and have been married for three years now to my 6"8 husband Joel. I love to craft, which you will see a lot of on my blog, as well laughing at my rabbits antics, which you will also read a bit about on the blog. I am a Christian and seek to share a bit of my faith with my readers. I am also Australian- which people often don't realise when reading my blog, except when I spell favourite, mum and metre differently.

2) You live in Australia - a place that I've been fascinated with since I was a little girl (true story) - tell us some things that we might not know/or expect about Australia.
This question always makes me laugh. When I visited family in England for the first time as a teenager, they were shocked that I wasn't a tanned surfy! The stereotypical Australia that you see in pictures is not what it is in reality- we are not all slim, fit, sporty types nor do we have kangaroos jumping down our streets. And no, all the guys here are not total spunk muffins, unfortunately. In fact, it is all pretty ordinary and often the stereotypes are inaccurate. We do use slang words a lot however. For example, McDonalds is "Maccas", "that's good/great/awesome" is "heaps good" and people really do say "G'day". It is an awesome place to visit though- definitely come over here for a holiday, the scenery is stunning.

3) What made you decide on a pet bunny?
I have had pet rabbits ever since I was 7 years old; I was rabbit obsessed as a child. While I was studying at Uni and living out of home I didn't have a rabbit so as soon as I was married and more 'settled' I knew I wanted to get one again. My rabbit Nibbles was actually given to my husband and I as a wedding present from one of my bridesmaids and to this day blesses our lives immensely. My husband may disagree with this when she pees on him or chews the fridge cord (even I was pretty unimpressed with that one!).

4) It's Saturday morning and you have no plans - how do you spend your day?
I dream of this happening! First of all I would sleep in until about 8 or 9 before spending my morning crafting and watching One Tree Hill. I would then meet up with friends for a lazy lunch date before heading back home for a bath in preparation for dinner at an expensive restaurant with my husband.

Love me some One Tree Hill! 

5) What is your favorite aspect about blogging? Least favorite?
My favourite aspect about blogging is interacting with my readers. I love the conversations that I have with readers via email and the comments that they leave. I also really enjoy writing the blog posts; I just have so much to say! My least favourite part about blogging is feeling inadequate. Sometimes I feel like a little fish in a big pond and feel like I'm not 'cool' enough- I don't have an extensive wardrobe, struggle to take amazing shots and don't have thousands of followers or page views. The pros certainly outweigh the cons however.

I think we are all little fish in a big pond, but honey, you are enough! 

6) Top 3 movies of all time, go!
Oooh, tough one! I am a sucker for romance and nice 'fluffy' movies. I love The Notebook, any Disney movie and any Julia Roberts movie... is that too broad or too much of a cop out? I honestly wouldn't be able to pick!

I hate this question too - I can never pick :)

7) Your dream vacation - describe it.
Oh boy, I love holidaying! I have been on my dream vacation with my husband. It was in Fiji. We spent a week island hopping and then a week at a luxury resort. We drank lots of cocktails, stuffed ourselves silly with delicious food and spent our days lazing by the pool/beach, reading and relaxing. It was sooo good! As for future vacations, I hope to one day go to Disneyworld having been to Disneyland a few years ago.

...and now I'm jealous because you've been to Fiji :)

8) #1 on your bucket list?
Adopt a child. I have felt a calling to adopt since I was about 15 and that calling is getting stronger and stronger by the day. My husband and I have just started the process to adopt a child, but know that it is still a few years off. 

9) One thing you will never, ever do?
Get a tattoo. I hate needles and pain, so a tattoo is out of the question. That and I change my mind too much; I would get a tattoo and within a year be sick of it no doubt.

I want one. I'm also a chicken so it will probably never happen.

10) You get a whole day to spend with anyone you can imagine - who would it be?
I would be happy with spending just 5 minutes with Taylor Hanson. I had the biggest crush on him in school and swore that we were going to get married. I would love to meet him one day to tell him about the scrap book that my friend and I made about him and his brothers. I think perhaps telling him about the collage we made of their faces might be taking it a step too far though, agreed?!

This gal is awesome don't you think?
