Blogging Hangover

I've never had a real life hangover, but I'm pretty sure that today I have a blogging hangover. I guess I poured out all my emotional, creative juices yesterday on Miss Blake and so today... I've got nothing. In addition to having nothing, I didn't quite get around to taking pictures of our Christmas trees last night because I had a headache, so today... I've got nothing to work with. AND, I asked B how his part of Meeting My Match was coming and the poor man has been swamped at work, we're rarely ever home and now he's having to start studying for boards, so guess what... He's got nothing! (Actually, he had more than I thought he had... on the back of one of his pages covered in medical jargon was the start of his very sweet version of our story. He read it to me. It's good. You're going to like it... Sorry to leave you a hanging a little longer... You'll live, I'm sure.) Soooo, today you are getting a very interesting 50 Q&A about yours truly! I secretly love to fill these things out although I never forward them on like the emails tell you to and so far none of the curses have happened to me - I did find love, I didn't die in 10 days and the majority of my wishes have come true! Lucky me I guess... So here goes! I promise to have something much more entertaining for you tomorrow!!

1. What time did you get up this morning? Err... I'm more than a little reluctant to tell this since some of my coworkers read my blog... and my mom... she's going to call me about this one I can already feel it. Well, B got up at 5 something and he talked to me but I can't remember any part of it... Then he called me to tell me good morning from the hospital at 6am (He gives the best wake up calls, except that usually I fall right back to sleep) but I do remember parts of the conversation today (I used my best "fake awake" voice)... Then the alarm went off at 6:30am but I have no recollection of that except that I'm pretty sure that's when I tossed Rylee up in bed with me because she started cuddling and the next thing I know it's 7:28am and I literally JUMPED out of bed. Oopsy. 

2. How do you like your steak? Medium rare please

3. What was the last film you saw at the cinema: I'm pretty sure it was The Help... I know everyone said that the movie was as good as the book, but everybody lied. The movie was cute but the book was so amazing!! I read it on our honeymoon and COULD NOT put it down... When it ended I so wanted a part two. You should read it. I PROMISE you won't regret it. (If my friend Sheridan tries to tell you otherwise, just ignore her... she's wrong.) 

4. What is your favorite TV show? Modern Family, duh. If you don't watch it, you should. It's funny stuff!

6. What did you have for breakfast? Cherry Andes Mints (Sorry hubs, we are out again)

7. What is your favorite food? Tough one. I have a mean sweet tooth... I like sushi a lot... It's hard to beat a steak... so, probably chocolate pie or crab legs!

8. Foods you dislike? Not a tough one. Lettuce, Onions, Spinach, Carrots, Licorice, blue skittles, jelly beans, most fish (except striper and catfish... they must be fried), meatballs, did I say lettuce? I really hate lettuce. That's about it.

9. Favorite place to eat? Aww Shucks in Dallas - best crab legs ever

10. Favorite dressing? My friend Andrea totally got me hooked on the Kraft Balsamic Vinaigrette with Extra Virgin Oil and Parmesan... or something close to that, I can't remember exactly but it's awesome.

11. What kind of vehicle do you drive? A black ML350 SUV

12. What are your favorite clothes? Sun dresses hands down

13. Where would you visit if you had the chance? I'm currently undecided... see this post.

19. What is your favorite fragrance?  I have two favorites that I wear often: Michael by Michael Kors and the original Juicy Couture.

20. What is your favorite face cream?  When I use face lotion which is very rarely I use MAC... but I don't even know what it's called... clearly not big on "face cream"

21. Favorite baby/kids products?  Not going to lie, I LOVE Johnson's Sleep Time Lotion AND Bubble Bath... and I use them often and I'm not ashamed. They smell awesome. 
22. People watcher?  Always.

27. What is your favorite memory?  Oh man, I have lots of really wonderful memories... My all time favorite probably goes to the day I got to marry Brandon. That was a really, really good day.

29. Are you married?  Yes! Yes! Yes! And happily...

30. Always wear your seat belt?  Pretty much.

31. Been in a car accident?  I was in a minor fender-bender when I was little and it absolutely terrified me

37. How many times did you fail your driver's test? Unlike my mother, I passed my driver's test the first time. Love you mom!

38. From whom did you get your last email?  Miss Sheridan...

39. Which store would you choose to max out your credit card?  Oh SUPER tough one. I would probably choose Dillards because I could buy clothes and shoes and house stuff and pretty much everything in one place. But I also LOVE Anthropologie, MacKenzie Childs, Nordstroms, I could go on for days...

40. Favorite book?  Oh man, these are getting difficult... There's no way I can cut it down to just one so in honor of Christmas I'll choose one that my mom always reads to us and I'll read to my children some day, A Cup of Christmas Tea.
