Who cooks in the house? -Leea I'm gonna have to say me. Kate. I love cooking. It's therapeutic for me in a weird way. I don't get to do it often because we aren't ever home, but I love the sense of control I have being able to do it myself. I may or may not be a control freak at times. I love it though. Chopping everything up. Watching things sizzle. Yup. Good times. My mom is a ridiculously good cook...she's the best. When my friends and I would come over to my house for a break in college she'd have fresh baked cookies ready and put chocolates on our pillows. No joke. My mom is incredible. I can't say enough good things about her.
How did both of you meet? -Michelle
We met at a music program (The Contemporary Music Center) during college in January 2003 in Martha's Vineyard, MA. One of these blogs we will give you the whole spiel...Schpeeeel if you will.
What place are you most looking forward to visiting in 2010? Where do you go on vacation? Whats your favourite word? -Jason
Kate: I don't think I have one specific place I'm most looking forward to visiting...there are so many great things about all the places we are going :) I've never been to New Zealand though and am pretty excited I get to see it. I hear it's like heaven. I'll let you know. Home is where I like to go on vacation...haha...when you are gone so much, sleeping in your own bed and making coffee in your own kitchen can be the best vacation ever. But when I like to get away I am very much a tropical girl. Hawaii, somewhere in the Caribbean....give me a beach, some chips & salsa and a frozen fruity drink and that's pretty much the description of the most perfect vacation...oh and a good book of course. I don't think I have a favorite word. Hmmm...nope. Don't think I have one...if ever I find my favorite word I'll be sure to blog about it.
Jill: I love Australia. I always have fun going there so I think that is where I'm most looking forward to going this year. Kate was right. Home is the BEST place for vacation...whether it be Nashville-home or New Hampshire-home where I grew up. Okay okay, if I must pick a REAL place, I loved Maui when I went there a few years ago. My favorite word is: AWKWARD. I love spelling it out. I love words. I love palindromes and weirdly spelled words and everything to do with words.
Did either of you have a crush on Zack Morris (Saved By The Bell) or was A.C. Slater more your type? :) -Amy
Such an original question....well done Amy. Definitely Zack Morris. Come on. No contest. -kate
Did any girl NOT have a crush on Zack Morris? A.C. Slater was cool, but Zack is...i mean WAS my definite crush. -jill
Any beauty product must haves for you two? Is Kelly really a cool, down to earth person like she seems? -Stephanie
Beauty products...umm...concealer, some eye liner and some lip gloss can do wonders in under 5 minutes. True story. We have to wear so much make-up for stage that on off days we generally don't wear a lot of make-up or any for that matter :) Yes, Kelly is unbelievably kind, brilliant, normal, super funny--we are honored to sing with her.
What is the one thing you most enjoy doing when you are on the road? -Jennifer
Kate: I love taking pictures out on the road or taking little videos. It's a great way to document all of the things we get to do--sometimes I can't remember what I had for breakfast yesterday so I think it'll come in handy in 50 years to have some pics and videos to remind me of what went on back in the day.
Jill: I love to steal Kate's pictures because I am not so good at documenting. :) Also I read a lot, watch TV series, and write for fun. Oh, I mean...party so hard...yeah. Haha no...we are not really party hard people. There are cool people on the road too so it's fun to hang out with everybody.
