Questions with Caity – Partie Tres

Welcome back to the third installation of Questions with Caity!

This post is all about favorites! From activities to entertainment, here are some of my all time favorites.

What is your favorite weekend activity?

Hiking and cooking. Getting outside and having quality time in the kitchen are the two highlights of a relaxing, productive weekend for me.

Do you have a favorite quote?

Yes! A few, but one of my absolute favorites is actually a poem by Henry David Thoreau:

I went into woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.

What’s your favorite movie? TV show?

My favorite movie, since I was a kid, is Charade with Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn. Boondock Saints and Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels round out the top three. 🙂

Friends is one of those shows that you can always pick up which is fun, I especially love watching that one during spin class!

What’s your favorite book? Do you have a favorite author?

I grew up rereading The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas almost every year, and it’s still one that I love.

I’d say that my favorite authors are also ones from my childhood. My father read my brother and I fantasy books so I have a healthy appreciation of J.R.R. Tolkein, C.S. Lewis, Philip Pullman, Patricia Wrede, Sherwood Smith, and Diana Wynn Jones.

Favorite color?

Green is my favorite color, but I wear black most of the time.

Questions with Caity – Partie Deux

I received so many fun responses to my first Questions with Caity post that I decided to plan out a few more installations.

So please, please keep the questions coming – You can even leave one down below!

What did you want to be when you grew up?

Indiana Jones! I was obsessed. I planned to study history heading into college and wrote my admissions essay to Berkeley about how I wanted to be an adventure anthropologist – a la Indiana Jones – when I grew up.

Where are some of the places you’d love to visit?

I’m a HUGE fan of traveling and a few of the places on my To Do List are Caesarea, Petra, Turkey, and Machu Picchu.

Favorite breakfast foods?

During the week I love having oats with nuts, seeds, berries & protein powder. On weekends it’s either a smoothie before a workout or a giant veggie & soy chorizo scramble on a luxurious, lazy morning.


Biggest pet peeve?


And people who walk slowly on crowded sidewalks. Usually looking at their phones. Groan.

Favorite fruit? Vegetable?

Grapes, pineapple & any and all berries.

And… Spinach maybe? I eat it every single day. Though I must convince that I also get pretty excited about sweet potatoes coming into season.
