Thanks Luphia!

Luphia of Luphia Loves… tagged me a few weeks ago. I’m a horrible person and have not completed this. Sorry girlie!

Here goes:

What are you wearing now? Skinny jeans, pink top and my fav. matiko boots over my jeans.

How often do you blog? Lately, not so much. This will change.

Who was the last person you hugged? My neighbor who came over for dinner.

Which item from your closet are you wearing most lately? My love quotes scarf. I love it!

What’s for dinner? I don’t know the main course, but hopefully some asparagus. For someone who used to hate this veggie, I sure eat it a lot now. I’m making up for lost time!

What’s the last thing you bought? Domino Decor book. The Lil Bee inspired my purchase!

What are you listening to right now? Itunes. Tom Petty, of course!

If you could have any super power, what would it be? I’d be a genie and grant myself a million wishes. I’d go from there.

What is your favorite weather and why? I like to be comfortable, and being comfortable for me is 84 degrees.

What time do you usually get up? Depends on the day, and depends on what time my grandma gets up. If she gets up during the night, I’m up during the night.

What is your most challenging goal right now? Getting things in order. All I need is a chance, I have the skills needed. All I need is a chance, would that be considered a challenge? If so, that’s my goal!

Say something about the person who tagged you? She has an amazing blog, and is a wonderful person. I was on cloud nine when she decided to add me to her blog roll!

If you could have a house- totally paid for, fully furnished-anywhere in the world, where would you want it to be? I would want to live near my mom, she’s my bff. I’d also want to make sure I live near Laura, Lindsay, Kim and Melina. They’re the best girls I know…and I miss them šŸ˜¦ As far as location, how does San Diego sound? Oh and if any small market news stations happen to check out my blog, I’d love to live anywhere I can find a job šŸ™‚




Favorite Vacation Spot: Lake Tahoe, California and Nevada šŸ™‚ Many happy memories from my childhood were spent here, and it’s just one of the greatest, most beautiful places in the world.

Rigged Tag!

Katie of A Southern Girl In The City was kind enough to tag me to post my 4th photo in my 4th folder more than a few weeks ago, and I feel bad that I am NOW just getting to this. My apologies as this has been a beyond eventful month! Have I mentioned that we’ve had problems with our septic tank since Christmas day? Just as my grandma was starting to feel a little relief, our septic decided to go out, and we’ve had problems ever since. Lets just say there was aĀ  flood in my bedroom yesterday that started in the toilet. I won’t go into more detail, as this usually proud-to-live-in-the-country girl…..isn’t so proud at the moment!

Ok, so needless to say when I initially decided to post these I realized that I don’t have 4 photos in my 4th folder. Who would have ever thought?! Katie was kind enough to rig the game a bit for me, and allow me to post my first photo in the seventh folder. Good, seeing as I only have 1 photo in this folder!

img_0150This photo was taken at the Brad Paisley Concert in Marysville, California in 2007!

I will now tag 4 people to either post their 4th photo in their 4th folder…or if they’re like me and don’t have four…their first of folder 7!

Even More So

I’ve been tagged before to list 6 quirky things about myself, but because I love Blair’s blog, Delight By Design so much, I was more than happy to think of 6 more things.

1) You might think I’m a girly girl from the looks of my blog, but I love sports just as much or slightly more so than I do design. GO COWBOYS! Tony Dorsett, and touchdown were my first words. I was taught well! šŸ™‚ In fact I am watching them beat the you know what out of the SF 49ers. My apologies to my readers who are Niner fans.

2) I have about 600 songs that I’ve downloaded off Itunes, but I don’t have an ipod. Go figure!

3) I wash my hair with bottled water. I live in the country and we have a well. My hair used to get so fried when I washed my hair, so I started going this route. I have a filter, a Johnathan to be exact, and no that didn’t help.

4) I would rather stay at home than hang out with people who don’t have my best interest in mind. I guess you could say I’ve been scarred by evil girls that I worked with at my previous job. They used to hold up my purses ask how much I paid for them, give me hell because I used to like to dye my hair, would make up stories about me because they couldn’t handle that I won awards for my customer service and because I had internships at two local television stations. Oh and if I couldn’t go to their parties, they’d try to start fights. IĀ  listen to people say how wonderful their girlfriends are to them, and how they couldn’t make it without their girlfriends. I shouldn’t complain seeing as my mom is my best friend, but I would like to know what it’s like to have a bunch of girls to hangout with and that are nice!Ā  I’m jealous of all these people on myspace and facebook…damn them! lol

5) I have a very hard time crying…even when I try. But if I hear, read or see anything on the mistreatment of pets, when someone has lost a pet, or anything that has to do with pets…I will start balling. I think “pets” are the best family! šŸ™‚

My beloved Ricky who is now in Heaven.

6) I won’t back down…I have goals that I want to accomplish, I am pretty competitive when it comes to certain things, and I am my worst critic. I guess you could say one of my favorite musicians wrote this for me- “You can stand me up at the gates of hell, but I won’t back down. I’m gonna stand my ground, won’t be turned around, and I’ll keep this world from dragging me down.”Ā  As quoted by the legendary Tom Petty.

Here are three of my peeps that I’m tagging!
