To be sung: Mememememe

I was tagged by Knit Purl Gurl over at Mommatudes to do yet another Meme. I know you are all probably sick of learning about me, but I hate to disappoint such a sweet lady and faithful follower; so here goes nothing:

What’s your current obsession? Photography

What’s your weirdest obsession? Having all of my clothes categorized in my closet not only by pants/dresses/shirts/skirts but also by season AND by color (yes, I realize I have a problem).

What are you wearing today? My black warm-up pants, an old long sleeve t-shirt, and my house shoes right now. What? Not fashionable enough for you? It’s cold and rainy and I don’t have anywhere to be for a few more hours, so get over it : )

Why is today special? I have my health, my family, a roof over my head and food on my table. What more could a girl ask for?

What would you like to learn to do? I know how to cook. I know how to sew. I know how to take pictures; but I would love to do each of those things better.

What’s the last thing you bought? Flowers for my garden.

What are you listening to right now? My boys playing/bickering in their toy room (ummm…maybe I should go and check on them).

What’s your favorite weather? sunny with a slight breeze; temp: low 80s

What’s your most challenging goal right now? Getting off the computer : )

What do you think about the person who tagged you? She is a doll and oh-so-crafty!

What's your favorite guilty pleasure? Marble cake….yummmmm!

Favorite vacation spot? Hands down – Maui!!

What would you like to have in your hands right now? Photoshop (duh) : )

What would you like to get rid of? The extra pounds that have set up residence on my legs and arms.

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go? The beach…oh please someone send me to the beach.

Which language do you want to learn? French – it is such a beautiful language.

What super power would you like to possess? The ability to be in more than one place at a time.

What’s your favorite thing about the city you live in? Well, I don’t really live in a city (as if you couldn’t tell by the dirt roads and cows from the previous post); I live in a town. I guess what I like most about it is the fact that I can walk to town and do all of my errands without a car.

What’s your favorite piece of clothing in your own closet? My black warm-up pants for those comfy days at home and since my shoe collection and handbag collection aren’t really considered clothing, I guess I would have to say my black cocktail dress for those special evenings out on the town (which don’t happen often enough).

What’s your dream job? I guess you could say I’m living my dream! Staying home with my boys is exactly what I want to do.

If you had $150 now what would you spend it on? A new camera lens.

Do you admire anyone’s style? I loved Audrey Hepburn’s and Grace Kelley’s style. They were always elegant and classically dressed.

Describe your personal style. I guess this would depend on what I have going on. If I am just staying home – I enjoy wearing t-shirts and comfy pants. If I am going out – I would say that my style is pretty classic. I enjoy buying clothing that will be in style years from now.

Who’s fashion show would you want tickets to? Carolina Herrera

Who’s closet would you want to raid? Nicole Kidman’s; although, I’m pretty sure my left thigh would not even begin to fit into any of her clothes.

What are you most proud of? My family.

If you could choose one person who has passed to have lunch with who would it be and why? My grandmother. She was an amazing woman and I know she would love to meet my boys!

Now the rules of this tag:1. Respond and rework: answer the questions on your blog, replace one question you dislike with a question of your own invention (yeah, I didn’t read the directions to well – so needless to say, I didn’t do this part – oops).  2. Tag 7 other people you would love to learn more about. Here’s mine:

  1. Sally’s World (even though I tagged her the last time…she’d already done it, so I feel it is only fair to tag her again – lol)
  2. Life With Viv (I thought since some of the questions had to do with fashion, she might just answer these – love ya, Mandy!)
  3. Matters of the Heart
  4. My Life In Sweatpants
  5. Jayspee in DC (she is going to be a first time mom so stop by and congratulate her)
  6. Eyeglasses & Endzones
  7. The Arthur Clan

We're selling my old computer and it has Photoshop 7 on it. Just in case you wanted to know!

I loved learning more about you! (And my $150 would go towards the exact same thing. Ha!)

I'll try to fill this out sometime in the next week or so. Fun!

April said...

You will have to let me know if you have any good marble cake recipes. Nick loves it!

Andy said...

I, for one, am glad to know new things about you. Please keep it up- we're just getting to know each other, after all.
My super power would be invisibility... but it wouldn't do me much good, because as soon I'd get in the women's locker room, I'd start giggling, and the jig would be up.
