gtkY: Kelsey Inspired

Our first gtkY is Kelsey from Kelsey Inspired. I stumbled onto Kelsey's blog not too long ago and was totally hooked from there! Kelsey covers everything in her blog, from fashion to crafts, life and love. Plus, she and her husband (her college sweetheart!) just returned to the states from living in Grenada...a place I had never heard of until reading about it on her blog! Enjoy getting to know my friend, Kelsey!

  1. Why did you start your blog? I was living in Grenada with a lot of time on my hands and was making a new "craft" every day and I wanted to join the blogging community to get ideas from others and to share mine!
  2. What is your name? (Or what do you wish you were named?) Kelsey.  In college there was this boy who mistakenly called me Regina once and I fell in love with that name.  
  3. When is your birthday? April 13th
  4. Name 3 jobs you’ve had in your life. Waitress, Professional grocery shopper {serious} and I am currently{temporarily} substitute teaching
  5. If you could have ANY job, what would you do? I wish I had studied social work.  After spending 2 years in Grenada my eyes were opened to all the suffering and injustice in the world and I want to be able to help people.  Perhaps once my husband finishes medical school we could go into missions of some sort... but I see myself working in whatever community I'm living in and just loving people.
  6. What are you most afraid of? closed spaces and falling off of something high.
  7. What was your favorite item as a child? I have a stuffed lion that I {still} love.  I think I blogged about it once
  8. What are 3 movies you could watch over and over? Elf, Love and Basketball, and I Dreamed of Africa.
  9. Your dream vacation would be… GRENADA! I miss it so much. can you tell?
  10. What are 3 websites you visit daily? Pinterest, Facebook, and Blogger to read all my blogs I follow!
  11. Must have snacks? Oatmeal cream pies and sour gummy worms
  12. Go-to outfit and hair?  A dress and a braid
  13. Do you eat the stems of broccoli? yes, I just started like broccoli in the past couple months though.  I ate it deep fried the other day! delicious!
  14. Favorite ice-cream? Blue Moo Cookie Dough
  15. Favorite day of the week? Friday
  16. What do you do most often when you are bored? Pinterest or actually make stuff with my hands
  17. What is your favorite board game? does Yahtzee count?
  18. Favorite smell? Ohio in the spring time.
  19. What’s under your bed? yikes. a lot.  All of my husband and I's belongings are crammed into my high school bedroom at my parents.  So I think dishes, books, and probably magazines.
  20. Which useless superhero power do you wish you possessed? to not get burnt by my hot glue gun?
  21. If you could meet one person dead or alive, who would it be? My Grandma!  She passed away when I was 6months old and I've always heard stories about how wonderful she was... and she was a crafter so I bet she has some good tips!
