Liebster Award!

I am undertaking the 11 things tag once more, thanks to Kelli over here at.....

Having accepted the award, I now have to post 11 random facts about myself and answer 11 questions as assigned by the tagger!

~ 11 Facts~

1) I want to be Mrs. Clause! I mean, think about it. I would get to make cookies and toys all day, wear red and white fur trimmed dresses with no one thinking I'm weird and I would get to help take car of a bunch of little people I didn't have to give birth too.....

2) I'm getting a car of my very own today! And not just any car, an adorable Tardis blue PT Cruiser!

3) The main reason I avoid drinking the proper amount of water each day is because I hate how much it makes me have to pee! 

4) Josh Groban annoys me, don't know why, I just can't stand him!

5) Ditto for Barbara Streisand! I have never been able to figure out why these two people bug me oh so very much, but they do! =P

6) Nothing ruins my manicure faster the doing a sink full of dishes! 

7) It bugs me that people seem to to forget the Rose fell in love with Doctor 9, not 10! 

8) I had never pumped gas in my life until a week ago. It was illegal in Oregon to pump your own gas and I'm not sure I hated that law!

9) I like to mix my cereal kinds. For example, Cinnamon Toast Crunch with Cocoa Pops and Marshmallow Mateys with Apple Jacks!

10) Blue and green are the two nail polish colors I have to most of! 

11) I can hardly wait for the warm weather to finally get here!!!!! 

~11 Questions~

1)Can you do a cartwheel?
*sigh* Nooooo, not really, but not for lack of trying! =P

2) If you had to be a movie character at a costume party, who would you pick to dress as?

One of my top three favorite movies, I mean come one, it's Beauty and the Beast with a quirky twist and uh-MAZING costumes! How could I not be slightly obsessed with it?

3) Would you rather go up in a hot air balloon or go kite surfing?
Hot air balloon hands down!

4) What was the FIRST and the last movie you've seen in theaters? What do you plan on seeing next?
First was Little Mermaid and last was The Hobbit! And as for the next one, I have no idea! I am really looking forward to Joss Wedons version Much Ado About Nothing, but that's not coming out until June!

5) Is there any color you won't wear?
Some shades of green and yellow make me look ill, but it's not that I won't wear them, I just won't wear them near my face! Oh, and oatmeal, I will not wear oatmeal anywhere if I can help it! Drab grey/tan just isn't my cup of tea! 

6) If you were getting married right now, what song would you pick as your bridal recessional? Fun and petty? Meaningful and spiritual? Classical or pop? Live or canned?
Gosh, I have no idea! I know what song I want played as I walk down the isle, but I've never thought about what song I want played as I I'll keep thinking about it and leave you with a video for the song I want to walk down the isle to!

7) What drink do you drink the most?
As fun an answer as this is, water! Though coffee would have to be my second most drunk beverage!

8) Do you wear sunglasses? If so, how many pairs do you own?
Yep, but I just have one pair as I have prescription lenses and that ups the price of each pair by quite a bit! But, I would have a million pairs if I didn't need those darn prescription lenses, I love sunglasses!

9) Would you rather run one mile or walk three?
Walk three.....
I was almost running three, but then the move happened and my running routine got messed up and I haven't been able to force myself to start up again! It's been to cold and besides, it's really hilly in my neighborhood, blah, blah, blah, excuses excuses!

10) Do you prefer the singing of Frank Sinatra or Fred Astaire?
Frank Sinatra, but Fred Astaire is one of my favorite actors!

11) Suppose you're a phenomenal singer and dancer - if you were to be in a musical, which musical would you want to be in and what character would you like to play?
Into the Woods and Little Red Riding-hood! It's such a fun show and I love the mixed up faerie tale humor and Red is my favorite female character, the Princes are my very favorite, but they are princes and not princesses, so I'm not exactly qualified to play them!

And I am going to be phenomenally lazy and just tag everyone who wants to do this who has less then 200 followers and to further cement my laziness, I'm even going to have you use Kelli's questions!

Welcome Spring!

Happy first day of spring everyone! I've heard tell that's it's snowy and below freezing in some other parts of these United States, but right here in my corner of  Tennessee it's a practically balmy 55 right now! 

So, I think I'll stop sighing over my weather and just enjoy the glorious day I've been blessed with.....yes, I am rolling my eyes at myself while I'm typing that! ;-)

I know, I know, the lighting is wonky, blame the time of day and my slowly breaking camera!

 I was soooo dizzy at this point,
does anyone else find it notoriously
difficult to get good spinning shots?

Sweater: JCPenny, Skirt: Made by me, Brown Flats: Target

Jewelry: Made by me

I'll leave you with this.....

.....and the assurance that THIS BLOG in not exaggerating about the amazingness of this salted pretzel chocolate caramel bark.....

Does anyone else love circle skirts??

What was the weather like for you on the first day of spring?

New Page!

Did you notice a new little tabby thing (yep, that's me, keepin' it all technical up in here!) under my blog tittle? If so, good for you, and even if you didn't, click on it, check it out and follow along if you want too!

I've read 81 one of the 240 or so books on there....and only have given myself roughly 3 years to finish the rest.....excuse me while I go and contemplate my madness.....while reading of course! ;-)

Awkward and Awesome Thursday!

~Yep, every few days I wear this lovely hat all for the sake of my hair.....for the uncurly girls among you, it's called plonking. Basically, it's a way to wrap your curly hair up in a towel without disturbing the curl pattern, cutting the drying time in half!

~I've had the hiccups on and off for the past 4 hours and they only seem to be getting louder!

~The man I saw at a gas station this morning wearing black and white stripped pants and an orange jacket with the words "Maury County Prison" written on the, so.....out for a joy ride are we?

~Driving over a freshly killed skunk at 6:15am during a driving rain storm and thinking something is horribly wrong with your car, then as your eyes begin to water you realize what that smell is and pray the horror stories that say, you might as well sell your car because that stank ain't never coming out, aren't true!

 The inside of the car reeks and your wipe clean only jacket (hey, who can afford real leather? It's pleather for this girl until she wins the lottery!) makes your Mom gag when she gets close to it.....
Thankfully after some research and liberally applied coffee grounds and baking soda, the car no longer smells like skunk and neither does my jacket!

~Thanks to the a fore pictured awkward head gear (and a few other steps of course) my hair ends up like this! I would be happy to share my hair care routine if anyone is interested!

~Guess who will soon be the proud owner of a Tardis blue PT Cruiser?!?! Now, comes the hard part, finding the perfect name!

~Sweet tea (AKA ambrosia of the gods) and a bagged lunch at a womens retreat where the healthiest part of the meal were the pickles in the Chik-Fil-A sandwich! I know, I know, but it's fun to eat like once in a while!

Life Lately

I started this show a few months ago and may have watched 18 episodes in a week, then re-watched them when I got the rest of my family hooked! Who knew a show about a cattle ranch in Australia could be so addicting? Hulu and Netflix both have all 8 seasons available!

This stuff smells sooooo good! It makes me want warm weather even more. I guess if I can't have warm weather, at least I can smell like summer!

We finally finished season 4 of Doctor Who and even though it's gong to get me stoned by ardent 10 fans, I can't say I'm sad to see Tennet go, this last season was a wee bit over dramatic *ducks*to*avoid*rocks* 
Hopefully we get some rollicking and fun back in season 5!

It's after Valentines Day, so I can now eat these lovely little eggs of yumminess!

The family I nanny for is moving into their new house on Wednesday, so my commute will only be 35 minutes and not an over an hour, YEAH!!
