I asked Eva some (lame) questions and she wrote back to me with her answers.
Me: Okay Eva, Today is all about you! First of all, describe your blog in ONE WORD.
Me: Alright, what is your Least favorite color? I said LEAST favorite, not FAVORITE. See what I'm doing? I'm being edgy. (Barbara Walters can suck it)
Eva: Brown....it looks terrible on me.
Me: I don't like brown either, but it looks nice on me so that's kind of worse, don't you think? If you could go back in time and change one thing, what would it be and why would you change it?
Eva: I'd be scared to do that, because who knows what else it might change......Well, When I left teaching I withdrew my retirement funds and started my own business....Classy Lady: a ladies boutique with sizes 14 and up. It was 1991 and not the best time in the economy; I didn't have enough start up money to stay afloat and ended going bankrupt. Lost my house, two cars, etc. Had to start all over from scratch. I guess if I'd invested those funds instead of starting a business, today my house would be paid for, I'd have the money to travel wherever I want, and wouldn't have to worry about paying my bills. (But who knows if that really would have happened?)
Me: It was pretty gutsy of you to try! I'm sorry it didn't work out for you. Okay, next question: What are your 5 favorite blogs:
I actually follow about 150 blogs, and there are more that I adore. These were just the first that came to mind. Mental Poo is very R-rated and not for the faint of heart, but he totally cracks me up. I follow him on Twitter and we're friends on facebook. I can't get enough of his humor!
Me: Wow, Eva. You are really a social-media butterfly! I can't get in to Twitter. Last question: What is the dumbest thing you have ever spent money on?
Eva: An elliptical machine....it was expensive, huge, and after a couple of weeks I lost interest in it. But most of the time I tend to be pretty frugal....almost tight. (Although I do love to eat out....as you know from my Sunday's in My Neck of the Woods!
Me: Thanks Eva! Everyone go check out her blog and her favorite blogs. Next week Jane from Jane's Junk and Treasures. (I haven't asked her yet, but if she says no I'll just make some stuff up. NO, I did not just make the Eva interview up. Honest! You can ask her!)
