I'm so vain, I'll probably think this post is about me...

If you guys tag me anymore I'm going to become a serious narcissist. Who doesn't love talking about themselves, right?

The lovely Barbie over at Chasing Dreams tagged me with this one. This one has a different spin to it so I really enjoyed doing it! Now, I started this before the weekend, so a few things may be off a little.

Here are the rules:

1. Respond and Rework - answer the questions on your own blog, then replace your least fave question with a new one, and add one more question of your own.

2. Tag 8 other un-tagged bloggers!

Here we go:

Q. Make a list of things you can see without getting up.
A. My computer, Mango Manderin body lotion from Bath & Body Works, my DDP, printer and ugly lamp.

Q. What are you wearing right now?
A. Old Navy Flirt jeans in dark wash, fushia tee with a brown cordouroy jacket and brown boots. And my Love Sparrow necklace. *sigh*

Q. What's the last thing you read/are currently reading?
A. Twilight. And completely obsessed with it.

Q. Do you nap a lot?
A. Not anymore. Babers and I napped a lot on the weekends when I was still in my apartment. Had a lot less responsibility and more time on our hands then. Best naps I ever had. *sigh*

Q. Who is the last person you hugged?
A. Babers, just this morning. Three times before he left, as usual. (Because I'm OCD about goodbyes with my loved ones.)

Q. What is your current obsession?
A. A tie between Twilight and blogging.

Q. What was the last thing you said aloud?
A. Was that my girl? Thanks.

Q. What websites do you visit when you go online?
A. My list of favorite reads on Google Reader, my email (AOL), my Jillry shop, Facebook and Twitter.

Q. What was the last thing you bought?
A. Groceries for camping this weekend. Hot sausage (you have permission to go there), grapes, eggs, hashbrowns and BEER.

Q. What is your favorite weather and why?
A. Fall or Spring. In the heat of summer I am so ready for Fall... by the time Winter is halfway through I'm begging for the light warmth of Spring. The mild temperatures and beauty of nature is what makes me love these seasons.

Q. What time do you usually get up?
A. Well, it depends. I aim for 6:15 but the SnuggleMonster is hard to resist. Sometimes 6:30, sometimes as early as 5:45.

Q. What is your most challenging goal right now?
A. I'm with Barbie. Weight loss and exercise. I just can't seem to commit to a consistent plan. And yet, I never give up trying! :)

Q. Say something to the person who tagged you.
A. She's cute as a button (what does that saying MEAN anyway? Are buttons really cute?? Anyways, she's cute!) And always has something interesting to say. Plus she's my bud on OSB!

Q. If you could have a house - fully furnished and anywhere in the world - where would it be?
A. Right here in in my hometown, but somewhere a little more country (read more land, less traffic, outer skirts of town). I love being near my family and friends and would not trade that for the world. Not even for a fully furnished house. Wait. Does this mean I get to pick what's in the house? On second hand... Ha, just teasing.

Q. Favorite vacation spot?
A. I've always loved Orange Beach but they lack one thing: Cajun food. They have endless supply of seafood but you can't find a restaurant that can serve a perfectly seasoning plate of seafood pasta to save your life.

Q. What is your favorite item of clothing?
A. The Flirt jeans I have on right now give me the hint of a backside, so I should say those are my fave, but I still think I'm going with my pajama pants.

Q. Name one thing you can't resist, no matter how bad it is for you?
A. Pasta. Pasta, pasta, pasta.

Q. Favorite pair of shoes you keep going back too, over and over?
A. Do slippers count as shoes? If not, my New Balance tennis.

Q. What is your favorite restaurant?
A. Ooh that's tough. Gino's Italian Restaurant for their Tortellini Carbonara or Mike Anderson's for pretty much any CAJUN seafood. Mmmm....

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?
A. Got a few, you got a minute? Interrupters. HATE that. Chics that go to ridiculous measures to get attention from men (read skimpy clothes, sticking body parts out, etc.). Unruly children and the parents that don't discipline them (high five on that one Barbie). Thoughtless people. Texting me back with just "Ok". And last but not least, waiters that ask if you need a refill and then TAKE YOUR DRINK away from you mid-chew. Bring me a new glass dummy, how am I supposed to eat without my drink? (Note: I used to be a waitress, so I am allowed to gripe about this. I never took drinks away. What if my customer CHOKED??)

Q: What are you most excited about right now?
A: About going camping this weekend!

Q. If you had your dream dinner guests over, what would you serve them?
A. Hands down my Shrimp Fettucini with some spicy cheesy crescent rolls (recipe from the fabulous LillyElla) and salad with my homemade Green Goddess dressing. Now. See why I wrote what I did about my challenging goal? Lol!

Who do I tag? This has circulated to most everyone by now, but if it hasn't and you are reading this right now and would like to participate, please consider yourself tagged! I love love love reading all of your answers and getting to know you more, so I do hope you play along.

Oooh, I have that 'thing' about texts which just say 'ok' too :-O How bloody rude is that?! Grrrrrrr. x

asthmagirl said...

Well, I totally know you better now! I love the pasta too! And have a fondness for Twilight!

How was the camping trip?

Roxrocks said...

If I came over for dinner, I'd want you to make that Crawfish entooflee or whatever it is. Just sayin'! LOL!

I also don't like the "Ok" texts. I have a whole rant about texting that is just itching to get out.

Hmmm, well since I'm the one to tag you.....I'll just answer your last question......mushroom tart (from Martha Stewart's Everyday Food), spinach manderine orange salad with my homemade strawberry dressing, Pan seared sea scallops, green beans with caramelized shallots, and either my homemade carrotcake OR cheesecake moose for dessert.

Girl, now you have me thinking about food again.. And the day before our OSB weigh-in. You are SO bad!!!

This was a veyr cool read Jilly. I hadn't ever seen this one. I'm not going to say I'm going to do it though because I'm seriously slacking right now, I owe you and 3 others sets of interview questions STILL (sigh...50 lashes for me, I know I'm a slacker) AND I still haven't done my letter N you tagged me with..

oh and if I ever come for a visit, that dinner sounds FAB! :)

Ashley said...

I HATE it when people text me with "ok" also!!!!! Glad I'm not the only one!!

Pasta is also my demise :)

I may do this tomorrow...we shall see!
