It's Vacation Time!


Today is my last day @ the office before my fabulous, well-deserved vacation week! The Hubs and I are packed, arrangements are all set for my cat sitter, I've picked out my beach reads and the iPod is ready!   

Mariam @ Mon Style De Vie tagged me in a little question/answer game, so I have to thank her for making my Friday post a piece of cake (my brain is already on vacation!) Mariam is new to the blogging world, but she's ready to share her love for fashion with the world, so check her out!  Her blog is where I first learned that Madonna & her daughter, Lourdes, were coming out with their own 80's-inspired clothing line, which is way too cool!

The rules are to answer the following 8 questions, then make up 8 of your own questions and tag some of my blogging pals to join in the fun!

1. What current style do you think will end up being a fad?
I'm a fan, but I think the Fit Flops/ Sketchers Shape Ups will eventually fade away, kinda like light-up sneakers did! (However, I thought I saw a kid wearing them the other day.  Are light ups back?!?)

2. What's your guilty pleasure?
Dark Chocolate.  Milk Chocolate. Chocolatey things.  And Bath & Body Works

3. What made you decide to start a blog?
Too much flowing through my little brain... I had to get it out! 

4. Favourite Past time
Reading, being artsy/craftsy, relaxing and chatting with my husband.

5. Do you have a job or are you a student?
I used to be a student - how I miss those days!  I work full time for a drug, alcohol, & mental health tx agency.

6. Favourite Chocolate Bar/Candy?
m&ms! Plain, Peanut Butter, Pretzel, doesn't matter!

7. Money/Love?
Love, for sure.  I don't have a whole lot of money (see question 5) so I don't miss it! I would definitely miss having Love in my life. 

8. Favourite Music & Movie Genre?
Music - this is so hard to pick, I will say "Pop/Rock" 70% of the time.
Movies - I'm drawn to comedies/romantic comedies (I LOVE "Definitely, Maybe!") I like a little bit of everything, though!
And now, the 8 questions I made up, along with the lovely ladies I tagged:
1. You have $100 to spend on a fun present for yourself.  What are you going to buy?
2. Accomplishment you're most proud of?
3. What is your favorite smell?
4. Your dream car?
5. Favorite Season?
6. What's your favorite way to relax?
7. What was your favorite candy as a kid?
8. It's a cold winter day, you're home alone. What now?
I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!  I am looking forward to a couple days of relaxation before heading off to the beach for even more relaxation :)
I'm going to be reading Richard Russo's That Old Cape Magic, and Jennifer Weiner's Best Friends Forever while i'm bumming it up at Myrtle. I've read several of Russo's novels, but this is my first Jennifer Weiner read!  I'm looking forward to trying out a new author.   

Judging by the book covers, they look like perfect summer reads!

Happy Friday!

Welcome to all of those stopping by from

Woot yay for the beach and vacation time. I am so jealous of you! My boyfriend and I both recently started new jobs so we probably wont get to take a long vacation for another year. Anyway, Im sure you will have a great time.

Light up sneakers are semi back in but I have noticed it more on kids that come from lower income families. Light ups are the shit...

Definitely Maybe is a GREAT GREAT movie! I love rom coms too. Do you like zom rom coms?

Cameron said...

I also love Definitely, Maybe!! Ryan Reynolds is one of my favorites & I love Isla Fisher! I am a sucker for a romantic comedy.
