Thank you for joining me in welcoming…Lacie Nezbeth!!
Lacie and I met through blogging, and it’s so easy to love her! She's an encouraging writer, and I always enjoy her blog posts. Smart and fun, Lacie stays at home with her children and writes historical novels. I’m thrilled to have her here today!
Let’s get to it!
1. Beverage of choice?
I almost always drink water. But it has to have crushed ice because I’m addicted to chomping on ice. It drives my husband crazy though. I have since heard that chewing ice lowers your body temperature so it has to work harder to keep warm, thereby burning a few extra calories. That’s probably not true, but it makes me feel good about my annoying habit. If I’m drinking something other than water, I usually choose Root Beer. Throw in two scoops of ice cream and I’m an extra happy girl.
2. Any pets?
No pets. I’m afraid we’re not pet people. At least the traditional kind. One day, I’d love to have some chickens and horses though.
3. Dream vacation?
I have two. Is that allowed? Dream #1 is an extended trip to Italy to trace my ancestry. I’ve been once before but I’d love to go back when I can speak the language better and talk to some of my distant cousins. I’m obsessed with the NBC show Who Do You Think You Are? Do you watch it? It’s basically one big trip back in time where you meet with historians and dig up tattered documents from your ancestors. Super cool…if you like that sort of thing. Dream #2 is a remote island called Turtle Island in Fiji. I’d love to go with my husband to celebrate our anniversary one year, but it’s so expensive since they only allow something like 12 couples on the island at a time…so that one will probably only happen if we win the lottery!
4. What are you listening to right now?
Right now, I’m listening to Sebastian from The Little Mermaid singing Under the Sea. My girls are in love with mermaids. Ariel in particular, so we watch this movie a lot!
5. What's for dinner?
So, my husband and I just started a crazy new workout program called Insanity, which comes with a detailed menu guide for optimal results. Thankfully, tonight’s a steak night. Although, hubby gets a baked potato and a roll with his meal and I only get a pile of steamed veggies. In what world is that fair! Good thing I like vegetables. But, for some reason, they never truly satisfy like a plate of chili cheese fries or a hot brownie sundae. Why is that?
Lacie, anything that helps us burn calories is good! I think adding root beer to the ice does burn even more calories. Can’t remember where I heard that. Maybe Jillian Michaels? Ha! I think it would be fun to have chickens. I’ve always enjoyed farms. Let me know if you get any. And of course you can have two dream trips! I would love to head to Europe and visit the towns my ancestors lived. But Turtle Island sounds amazing…how do you pick? Hmm...
Um, Insanity? I’ve heard of this workout and I’ve been assured it IS insanity! You’re my new hero! I think I’m the queen of exercise when I walk 2 miles. It’s good to top off a hard workout with chili cheese fries. Calcium and veggies, right? Thanks so much for being my guest today, Lacie!
From her earliest years, Lacie Nezbeth knew two things—she longed to be a stay at home mom and stories, in any form, captivated her. Today, those two passions have culminated into a fairy tale life that continually points her to God’s overflowing goodness. Her love of history, traveling and research made her decision to write Historical Romances an obvious and fitting choice. When Lacie isn’t working on one of her stories or tackling the unending mountain of laundry produced by her three small kids, she can be found chauffeuring her children to their various activities, talking to herself in the grocery store or plotting ways to get her entire family on another Caribbean cruise.
How do you celebrate spring? Do you plant flowers? Brew sun tea? Have a barbecue? I want to hear!
Have a fantastic Wednesday!
