Tag Time!

It's another *super* exciting Saturday night here in LuluLand... babysitting. Feeling extra spoiled though, as the baby was once again in bed before I arrived, and the family has the most deliciously fragrant vase of lilac on the coffee table. Every time I inhale I just want to close my eyes, it smells like the most relaxing spa in here! If only their dog would stop snoring, I could get some serious R & R going on here!

I'm taking this nice, quiet alone time to catch up on Google Reader instead of being productive with the wedding plans. I see that I've been tagged by Mojito Maven at Make Mine A Mojito, so I officially have one more thing to keep my procrastination streak going!

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.

Step 2: tag—eight other un-tagged people.

1. What were you doing​ and who were you with at 9:59 PM on Frida​y night​?​​​ Drinking a bottle of Smoking Loon on the couch, and probably watching something mindless on TV.

2. What is the last thing you read/are currently reading? I just started reading More than Enough: The Ten Keys to Changing Your Financial Destiny by Dave Ramsey, a Christmas gift from the future MIL.

3. Do you nap a lot? Oddly, I can only nap when I'm terribly hot. It's either when I've come down with some ridiculously knock-down, drag out cold and have a fever, or when I'm laying out in the sun all day on a lounge chair. Maybe I'm not really napping in either circumstance, but overheating and passing out? Hmmm...

4. Who was the last person you hugged? Mr. Wonderful, said goodbye to him before I headed out to babysit.

5. What is your current obsession/addiction? Ohhh, that's a toughie... Being unemployed has given me *plenty* of idle time to obsess over things. I'd say I'm obsessed with J. Crew right now, because I spend lots of idle time daydreaming about the perfect beach-worthy honeymoon wardrobe.

6. What was the last thing you said out loud? “Fer really though!?” Which in LuluSpeak roughly translates to "Are you serious?!". Said out loud (to myself, of course) in response to a text message I received.

7. What websites do you always visit when you go online? Google Reader,, Facebook, Gmail,

8. What was the last item you bought? A handheld one-hole punch, because the store didn't have any three-hole punches left.

9. What is your most challenging goal? To have the wedding planned in its entirety exactly 2 months prior to our wedding day. That gives me a total of 18 days left. Stop laughing.

10. If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished- anywhere in the world, where would it be? You and your tough questions... There are so many different places I'd love to be living right now! I'm going to go ahead and say here in NYC. It would be a lot more fun out here if I didn't have to pay my crazy rent!

11. Favorite Vacation spot? Right now, it'd probably be Mexico. Sun + sand + guacamole = Nirvana.

12. Say something to the person who tagged you: I booked my final dress fitting trip this afternoon... Do I hear a cocktail date!?

13. Name one thing you just can't resist no matter how bad it is for you: Shredded cheese. Can't keep the stuff in the house. I will wake up in the middle of the night thinking about it, and go eat it straight out of the bag. Shameful.

14. What is your favorite item of clothing? The winter white cape I got at the Burberry Outlet store in Dallas... It is sheer fabulousness. (and was SO inexpensive! God bless outlet malls.)
15. What would your American Gladiator name be and why? Mama. I'm going to go full disclosure here because I love you girls, and acknowledge my old alter ego. Let's just say that 'Mama' could be quite sassy after a few cocktails, and would definitely be able to hold her own against the toughest spandex-clad Gladiator.

16. Name one thing you can not live with out: Excluding the soon-to-be husband, I'm going to have to go with my BlackBerry. I was one of the many who never thought they'd get addicted... All lies.

17. Has a celebrity's haircut ever influenced you on your own hairstyle? Absolutely! I've had the Jennifer Aniston "Friends" shag, the Ashley Olsen "Nobody Should EVER Have Hair That Blonde" beach waves, and the Posh Spice bob, to name a few. I'm currently just channeling a look I like to call I Can't Afford A Haircut Chic.

18. If you could be any animal in the world, what would you be? A bird, for sure! How cool would it be to fly?!
I'm going to tag my eight newest followers…
