Brenn at Where Preppy Meets Hippie Tagged Me!
Step 1: respond and rework—answer the questions on your own blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your own invention, add one more question of your own.
What were you like when you were five? I was in kindergarten in Irvine, California and such a cute little beach bunny. It was 1988. I was always curious and asking questions. I had to get my kindergarten teacher to tie my shoes every day because I hadn’t quite mastered it.
What are you wearing now? Bra, undies, black Patagonia capilene long underwear under black Old Navy dress pants, black mary-jane flats from Kohl’s with black dress socks, white and black damask print blouse from Kohl’s, black babydoll cardigan sweater from Kohl’s, Citizen watch, Tiffany Elsa Peretti starfish necklace, pearl stud earrings from Overstock.com, James Avery rope bracelet and my engagement ring, of course!
What color is your bedroom? Light baby blue.
What’s the last thing you read/are currently reading? I am currently reading Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. Very good so far, would definitely recommend. Do you nap a lot? Sometimes. Moreso on the weekends! It’s very tempting to snuggle in bed with Mango and Brian on those lazy weekends mornings.
Who was the last person you hugged? Brian.
What’s your current obsession/addiction? Twitter and wedding blogs!
What was the last thing you said aloud? Thanks, bye! (I was ending a conference call)
What websites do you always visit when you go online? The CMS for the TV station Web site I manage, facebook, Twitter, iGoogle/GMail/Google Reader. What was the last thing you bought? Vanilla bean for the creme brulee that Brian made on Monday night.
What are you listening to right now? Chatter in the newsroom, police scanner.
What is your favorite color, and has it always been your favorite color? Blue is my favorite color, but when I was very little it was pink! I think my preference changed around age 10 or so. What song are you currently listening to a lot? “Lucky” by Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat. I think it would be a perfect song to incorporate into the wedding. If you could have any super power, what would it be? To read peoples’ minds. Like Edward Cullen.
What is your favorite weather, and why? A day about 75 degrees or so, in either fall or spring. The kind with the big puffy white clouds. I also love thunderstorms as long as there’s no tornado risk.
What was the last reality tv show you watched? This is a tough one. I haven’t watched AI or The Bachelor at all this year. So honestly I couldn’t say.
What is your most challenging goal right now? Getting the wedding planned, jump-starting my weight loss, and learning all the technical tools I need at work, like Caspio, CSS and several other doodads.
Say something to the person who tagged you: Hi Brenn! You’re my second follower ever and thank you so much for tagging me!
If you could have a house–totally paid for, fully furnished–anywhere in the world, where would you want it to be? A beautiful beach house on Alabama’s Gulf Coast or a beautiful home here in the Birmingham area. Can I have both?
Favorite vacation spot? It’s a toss-up between San Diego, New Orleans and Disney World!
What is your favorite children’s book? I loved Superfudge by Judy Blume. read it so much it nearly fell apart.
Name one thing you just can’t resist no matter how bad it is for you: An all-the-way hamburger from The Stadium Grill in Bessemer, Alabama!
If you could meet anyone famous – dead or alive – who would it be? I’ve always had this borderline obsession with Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale since I was about 13, so I would want to meet them. No, not Oprah, not Gandhi, not Jesus, but G+G. Yep.
If you could have any job in the world, what would it be? Editor-in-chief of a magazine, novelist, or Gwen & Gavin’s nanny. lol. Joke on that last one. Now I tag: Tales of a Northern Belle
