Good morning!

I'm sitting over here at my sister's house, watching her little ones while she has a kid-free grocery shopping experience. Makes it so much easier. I was telling David that the other day I had Noah with me in the store and since he's 9, and impatient, and can read everything of course, he kept looking at the list going "we JUST walked by this! we already have this at home. Why do we need this? I'm not eating that. How many more things are you really going to get from this list? How much longer will this take?" ARGH! It's either they cry to get out of the basket, or they groan and grump as they walk alongside you, right? :)
Reading thru my favorite blogs this morning, I saw this little quiz on Rebecca's blog. Since I'm having a little down time, I thought I'd do it for myself. Here goes...

What is your current obsession?
Searching for new summer recipes to try, picking up clutter, Etsy, and glass glitter.

What is your weirdest obsession?
Hmm.... probably making lists and having to have hard copies of things. I was trying to do something last night only using the computer and was about to scream, wanting a pen and paper in my hand. Oh...and I can't go to bed with the kitchen dirty. And I can't get into the bed unless it's made up first.

What are you wearing today?
Ha....Old Navy dark wash jeans, Bjorn sandals, and my Office t-shirt - "Michael Scott's Dunder Mifflin Scranton Meredith Palmer Memorial Celebrity Rabies Awareness Pro-Am Fun Run Race For the Cure."
What’s for dinner?
Thinking of making a vegetarian lasagna with fresh spinach and mushrooms.
What would you eat for your last meal?
Probably just have chocolate desserts.

What's the last thing you bought?
A bunch of pearlized berry stems from Hobby Lobby for an upcoming class. And I got them in the CHRISTMAS section. Yes, HL had one aisle of Christmas stuff up. (ribbon and stems)

What are you listening to now?
My nephew is watching Noggin, so it's Ni Hao Kai Lan.

What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
Anything homemade or chocolate.

If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be?
I love Austin, so here. But I would also love to have a summer home in New England, maybe New Hampshire or Vermont. Maybe next door to the bed and breakfast we stayed in during our honeymoon. Sugar Hill, New Hampshire. Sigh.

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
Italy or France

Which language would you want to learn?

What's your favorite quote (for now)?
Lately I've loved silly quotes by Jack Handey. :) But for something more meaningful, I love this one - "Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier." ~Mother Teresa
What is your favorite color?
I especially love red, antique white, yellow, orange, robin's egg blue, and brown

What is your favorite time of day?
I love early mornings when it's quiet and peaceful and the coffee has just brewed.

What is your favorite piece of clothing in your own wardrobe?
Jeans, pajama pants, summery cotton shirts

What is your dream job?
Exactly what I'm doing. Mom at home, taking care of my family, and creating on the side.

What's your favorite magazine?
Country Living, Somerset Studio, Victoria, and Scrapbooks, Etc.

If you had $100 now, what would you spend it on?
Fresh produce at the Farmer's Market.

Do you admire anyone's style?
I love anyone who can pull off a comfortable, classic, vintage, feminine style. :)

Describe your personal style?
Striving for the above style....not there yet.

What are you going to do after this?
Going on the hunt for 75 photo frames for an upcoming class. Also taking Noah to TaeKwonDo this afternoon.

What are your favourite movies?
Moonstruck, That Thing You Do, Chocolat, and anything and everything with Cary Grant, Jimmy Stewart, and/or Grace Kelly

What's your favourite fruit?
Peaches, blueberries, oranges. Heck, I love ALL fruits except coconut.
This is the best time of year for fresh fruit!

What inspires you?
"Old stuff" stores, fabrics, my favorite bloggers

Do you collect something?
Silver taper candlestick holders, and small vintage items to use on projects. (teacups, postcards, button cards, broken jewelry)

If you decide to do this quiz, please let me know. Would love to read your answers.
Have a beautiful weekend!

I love your list! It's so fun to learn things like this about people I think. Oh, 2 things - I have the same weirdest obsessions as you! Now that is weird! And, I want a t-shirt like you have fromt The Office. I love that show! Have a great weekend!

Teresa said...

Okay, I did the quiz. Thanks for helping me procrastinate!

Jen said...

I had nothing to blog about today so I did your quiz. Too much fun! Have a great weekend!

How fun! I've never done a quiz, but this looks fun - I'll let you know if I do it, but wanted to chime in and say that I used to be in a Theater Company with Tom Everrett Scott - the lead in "That Thing You Do". It was funny to see that on your list of fav movies because I think that it was such a little known movie that most people don't even remember! He is a peach in real life!

Thanks for sharing your list - it was fun to read!

Jen, WHERE DID YOU GET THAT SHIRT? I have to have one.

I loved "That Thing You Do" too...great music!

Jennifer Stewart said...

Ha! I got the shirt at in the store. :)


Casii said...

Okay, like you even better after reading that you were wearing the Office shirt!

Fun quiz list. You're a seriously cool chick!
