Sonja, one of my absolute favorite blogreads
over at For the Love of Stilettos,
tagged me FOREVER AGO
for this fun little get-to-know-me survey!
Here are the rules:
1. Respond and rework: Answer the questions on your blog,
Replace one question that you dislike with a question
of your own invention, and add one more question of your own.
2. Tag other un-tagged people.
What is your current obsession?
Ruffles (on basically any piece of clothing), faux feather headbands, and my iphone.
Who was the last person you hugged?
My co-workers, for throwing me such a fun little birthday party at work!
What’s you favorite dinner?
Spicy tuna sundaes from our favorite little Sushi Bar
What was the last thing you bought?
JCREW Fleur patterned peep-toe heels and yes, Burberry wellies! After writing not only one, but two posts about how Hubs thinks they are not a dire necessity in my life, he promised to "look the other way" as I spent a ridiculous amount of money on what he calls, "plaid rain boots." Silly, Hubs!
What are you listening to right now?
The clinking of Sullivan's dog tags
as he's probably getting into something he shouldn't be.
What is your favorite weather?
What is your least favorite season?
Ugh. Winter. I do not ski. I do not appreciate the snow. I loathe being cold. I don't even want to talk about it.
What’s in your purse?
What’s in your purse?
My iPhone, my Kindle, a paperback copy of the book, The Middle Place, my wallet (thankfully I remembered it today, unlike yesterday), three tubes of MAC lipglass (yes, I said three), my car keys, my stethescope (obviously needs to be left at work and not carried around in my Coach bag) and a tin of Starbuck's overpriced breath mints.
Say something to the person who tagged you:
Sonja, you have a fabulous blog and I think we really need to get in touch with Lauren Conrad and tell her to stop writing such awful books.
What is your favorite dessert or cool treat?
c h o c o l a t e anything.
What did you want to become as a child?
There was a short stint where I wanted to be a veterinarian (I think I said that in my fifth grade yearbook). But ever since then, it's been Nurse, all the way.
What do you miss?
The time when things were simpler. Life sans bills and major grown-up responsibilities.
What’s your favorite brand of jeans?
Joe's. Or Citizen's. Or Seven's. Okay, it's hard to tell. It depends on the occasion. It's tough to find a great pair of jeans when you have a 34" inseam! My skinny Citizens are fab. My original Sevens are perfect for scooting around in. My Joe's look great with heels and my JCREW Matchstick jeans are PERFECT for tucking into boots!
If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
Just for an hour? Now, that doesn't seem like fun at all. But definitely Santorini, Greece. I'm trying to convince Hubs that this needs to be our last getaway before embarking on the baby train.
What are your most challenging goals right now?
Figuring out our future plans. Our "timeline" for all of those grown-up decisions. When to buy a house. Where to buy a house (minor details). Where to travel to next. When to make babies. When to buy another Sheepie. (Please, Hubs!? Pretty please, with a cherry on top?!)
What’s your 5 year plan?
We have no idea. We barely have a 1 year plan!
What is your favorite sport to watch?
Describe your perfect day:
Waking up after 8am (Hubs has already let the dog out, twice), coming downstairs to homemade pancakes (made with vanilla and NOT whole wheat mix, sorry Hubs), enjoying breakfast with the windows open and the crisp Fall air making the curtains dance and basically spending the rest of the day with Hubs, in our PJ's, lounging around the house with Sullivan. No laundry to do. No bills to pay. No house to clean. I'm fairly easy to please, believe it or not.
What TV show would you want to be a cast member on (reality included)?
Um, potentially The Hills. Is that bad?
What is your most prized possesion?
The custom handpainted Seven Knolls Lighthouse painting that sits above our bed. It was a wedding gift (one of my absolute favorites) and it's of the exact spot where Hubs proposed on July 1st, 2006. This was a tough question. Everything that I love (jewelry, wedding pictures) those can all be replaced. But not this painting!
Name one favorite childhood memory?
Ha! Gosh, there's SO many! When I was about 5 or 6 years old, the upper portion of our neighborhood was in the process of being built. There was always piles of lumber laying around and just these mammoth mounds of wood chips. I'm not even sure if this was legal, but my dad and I would always walk up there with our garbage cans and fill them with woodchips for the garden and for around the swingset. Well, this one particular time, my dad was busy filling one of the garbage cans so I climbed up to the top of the mound (we're talking one or two stories high!) with the lid to one of the empty garbage cans. Sat down in the lid and slid all the way down right INTO the empty garbage can. I can just remember my dad's face and how hard he was laughing.
