Fancy a game of tag?

 Apparently, I am still very susceptible to peer pressure because I am caving in right now and playing along with the Tag game that's been going around.

I usually just say "aw, thanks" and "I don't really want to do a post about me" and go about my business...but this time I've been tagged three times (thank you Ange, Carmel, and Maury!)

But because I can't just follow the rules and do things the right way (and since I had 3 sets of questions that were all different), I picked my favorite questions and just answered those.

Yeah, you're *know* you didn't want to read THIRTY THREE answers to these questions!

1. What's your favorite movie?
Um, how 'bout what's the best movie you've watched lately? It would definitely *NOT* be The Vow...saw that for Valentine's Day and disliked it greatly...waaaaay too depressing for a date movie! 
But I really liked the new Muppet Movie ...but I will warn you, it's cheesy, and the 3 and 5 year-olds that I took to it weren't partial...go figure (c:

2. Let's pretend you found $50 in your couch cushions, what would you run out and buy?

Yeah, I've already posted about this necklace once in the last week, and not that I'm *completely* obsessed or anything...but a 50 in the couch would *FOR SURE* be a sign that I need to get it (c:

3. What is your favorite home decor store?
I definitely don't have a specific store that I think has everything...I have *way* too ecclectic of tastes for that! But I would definitely LOVE to visit Furbish some day (c:

4. If you could swap lives with someone for a day, who would you choose and why?

Can I just be honest on this one? I have *NO FREAKING CLUE* who I would want to swap lives with. I know my life isn't perfect, so it's a pretty safe bet that no one else's is either!!! Although, I would *REALLY* like to hang out with Jonathan Alder for a day or two, my design boyfriend (c:

6.  What was your favorite book as a child?

I still love reading this one to my little ones, it's just a classic. Sam-I-Am, I owe all my adventurous food tests to you (c:

5.  If you could vacation anywhere, where would you go?

Honestly, right now I would love to just get to go home to NM for a bit, it's been a while since I've gotten to visit, and you know what they say, there's no place like home!

7.  If you were a color crayon, what color would you be?

This is a really difficult question for someone who loves so many different colors...but in the end, you know it's always you PINK

What is your favorite childhood memory?

SOOOOO many of of them has to be picking cherries every summer from the huge tree we had in the backyard...and eating half of them in the process (c:

9. What’s the most unusual thing you’ve ever eaten?

Of course I'm gonna pull something from my time in Brazil...this dish called Rabada...translated, that's cow tail. And I'll just save you the pleasure of trying it for yourself, it's disgusting.

10. Name one thing on your bucket list.

Skydiving. Oh yeah. (c:

11. What is one of your pet peeves?


It would definitely have to be negative commenters...I personally haven't experienced it (I'm knocking on wood right now, but I definitely just jinxed myself), but I just don't undestand why everyone can't just take Thumper's advice: If you can't say nuttin' nice, don't say nuttin' at all!!!

12. If you had three wishes, what would you wish for?

Easiest question *ever*.

#1 Enough money for me and the fam to live comfortably for the rest of our lives (c:
#2 A fantastic tutor for the kiddos so we could just travel *everywhere* but they wouldn't grow up to be dummies (hey, it's a real concern!)
#3 An awesome clawfoot tub. I just love those things...

And in true rulebreaker fashion, I'm not tagging anyone. I'm really "stickin' it to the man" this Monday morning, huh? (c:

I saw the vow last night and balled my eyes out for the entire movie. I was supposed to go to the grocery store after but my face was so puffy I decided to go home instead.

I too did the big snot tear with "The Vow" (last week).

So glad I read your blog today. I'm having "a day" and needed the cheerfullness :0)

I'll even lend you my anthro necklace :0)

Tanya from Dans le Townhouse said...

C'mon, 33 questions would be the best post ever. Great little tidbits. I hate seeing neg comments, too. But I also have not had any . . . except when a project of mine was featured on Design*Sponge, but then all the other commenters really took the negative nellies to school. Wowza.

Cassie @ Primitive & Proper said...

i am so with you on the negative nellies... we don't need them!
and i jus saw the vow- LOVED it.

Sam [The Peak of Tres Chic] said...

Cow tail??? I don't think I'd like that much...

Awww loved learning more about you, sweets! :) Your such a genuine gal! I'm with you on those Stoopid Negative Nacy's who like to make horrible comments... I experienced mine back in November and it's still haunting. People are so rude! Oh and I love your clawfoot tub wish... too cute! :)

White Lacquer said...

You seriously crack me up. I wouldn't mind reading the 33 questions whatsoever, especially with pretty pictures!!

I went cherry picking once. I actually did not eat them while picking because my mom said they weren't washed. I really listened to my folks growing up.

Yes! Furbish is a designers candy store. I should've made the drive when I was out in Charlotte.

Val said...

I need to go see The Vow asap. I heart that necklace.

Maury Kilgo said...

You're such a rebel! Ha :-) Love your answers and the questions... I find it interesting to see what people want to know. Thanks for playing!
