Kelly!

Meet Kelly from Diego Girl.

She's pretty rad. I met her because she actually found me. She sent me an email about swapping blog buttons, and after taking a gander at her blog, I was in. She's fun, happy, and pretty chill. It comes across on her blog.

She and I both reside in beautiful San Diego. She may not have a weekly  posting schedule, but it doesn't bother me because she writes about local stuff, and I'm a big advocate of living somewhere as great as here. She does usually have 5+ posts a month though.

I love to see what living in San Diego lets her do and experience, because then I get inspired to take advantage of the perks of living here too. Maybe one day we'll meet up. If we do it will probably be to do something fun/healthy, because we're both active and sort-of health nuts.

......................................................................................................

 What's your favorite place you've ever lived?
Of course, I love living in San Diego.  I’ve always been lucky enough to live by the ocean (with the exception of a short stint in Vermont) and I’ve always lived in beautiful places.  In San Diego, I love that the weather is beautiful year round and that there’s so many ways to enjoy the outdoors.  I’ve also lived in Maine where I loved the trees and rocky coast; Edinburgh, Scotland where I actually grew quite fond of the rain and the castles; and Melbourne, Australia where I just remember having lots of fun! 


Name 3 things you like about yourself.
I like my creative side, I love that I can make people laugh (I’m best at this in person – unfortunately it doesn’t really come across in my blog), and I like that I challenge myself.


What's your favorite dessert?
I love chocolate and I’m also a big ice cream fan. 


What's your go-to recipe/food when you don't know what to do for dinner?
Stir-fry.  It’s easy to have everything on hand – I keep chicken, steak and veggies frozen and have rice and all the ingredients for the sauce in my pantry or fridge.


What are the last 3 things you pinned on Pinterest?
Actually, I’ve never pinned anything!  I hear good things though, so maybe I’ll start one of these days. 


What is something you've always wanted to learn and why haven't you learned it yet?
I’d love to be fluent in Spanish.  I’ve studied it for a while and I do ok, but I think I need to spend some real time immersed in the language to become fluent.  I haven’t yet been able to carve out that opportunity for myself, but it’s on my bucket list. 


Sum up your blog in one sentence.
Diego Girl is about living an adventurous, active, confident life.


Where do you draw your inspiration from?
Most of my inspiration comes from nature and from my family. 


Is there anything else you want others to know about you?
As much as I’d love to be as fit, athletic and healthy as Gabby Reece, I have yet to find the willpower or drive to make it happen.  I love being physically active, having fun and eating healthy foods, but I also love lounging around the house eating a bowl of ice cream and watching romantic comedies.  Like many people, I struggle to find the time and energy to stay fit and eat healthy, but I try, and I get a lot of satisfaction and confidence from doing so.

Now go read through her posts and get motivated to do something healthy and active! 
Thanks, Kelly!
