My cup of tea...

I saw this meme recently on a blog I read regularly, and it seemed like a fun and easy way for those of my readers whom I do not know personally to have another glimpse into what makes me....me.  It's so much more fun to include pictures with these sorts of things, and Pinterest makes that so easy.

1. If you had a time machine, where or rather when would you go?


While I wouldn't want to go back in time with the purpose of changing anything, I have really fond memories of several summers during my teen years, particularly the time spent with my younger brother, and I would go back to those summers just to re-live them...no changes made, though.

2. Diamonds or Pearls?

I have to say I'm a diamond girl...while I love pearls, I'm a sucker for something that sparkles. :-)

3. What's your favorite movie?

While You Were Sleeping.  I joke that I could quote the entire thing...and while that is not entirely true, I can come pretty close to it, while it's playing...not from memory of course.  But, my family and close friends have many of the one-liners memorized and we banter back and forth with them regularly.

4. When you were a kid, what was your favorite television show?

Full House.  Some would argue that the {when you were a kid} part could be removed and the answer would remain the same.  Yes, I do own ALL 8 SEASONS on DVD, and yes, my daughter loves them now too.  Oh, and can I just say how cool it is that Candace Cameron Bure (D.J. Tanner) now has her own ministry and website?!?  Love it!

5. Let's pretend you found $50.00 in your couch cushions, what would you run out and buy?

No, I wouldn't run out and BUY coupons...I prefer to get my coupons for FREE.  But, I would run out and buy things WITH coupons...  See, I'm kind of competitive...okay, I'm a LOT competitive, so much so that I compete against MYSELF.  Always trying to find a better deal than last time.  So, I would try to stretch that $50 as far as I could to see just how much I was able to get out of it. 

6. What is your favorite color?

I guess there are some people who have a favorite color and stick with it for their whole lives.  Not me.  I go through seasons...  I love color in general though, which probably comes from my grandfather who was a paint contractor.  He loved color too.  I'm rather fond of lots of colors, and polka dots. I've had seasons where I liked aqua, purple, and blue/yellow -- currently I'm rather fond of pink or coral...but it's a season and soon I'll be on to a new color. 

7. Why did you start your blog?

Because she was born, and we live in a different town from our family.  I started out with a Xanga waybackwhen, switched over to blogger, then started a second blog for homemaking stuff, made this blog private for family only, then decided I couldn't keep up with all of that, so I shut down the homemaking blog, made this one public and erased all prior content, and now I write about whatever I please, whether personal or homemaking, etc.  

8. What is your favorite home decor store?

Crate and Barrel....I think.  I almost put Goodwill and Yard-sales here, though, because that is typically where I pick up most of my home decor and then I fix it up. But, I love looking through C&B for ideas. 

9. Name one thing in your makeup bag you cannot live without.

I could certainly LIVE without ALL the items in my makeup bag...but I prefer not to be without my Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner in Black-Brown.  Once I started wearing eyeliner, there was no going back -- I always feel like I look very tired without it. 

10. What TV show are you currently hooked on?

I'm not currently hooked on any TV shows, but everyone is talking about Downton Abbey, and I think I may end up getting hooked if I can ever find the time to start watching it.  I recently found out that the first season is available on hulu, and the second season is pretty cheap at Costco...  My demise?!?

Okay, well that's it -- hope you enjoyed this little glimpse into my life.  I'm not into tagging people to participate, but if you want to do it, go ahead and leave a link to yours in the comments. 

PS -- I guess because of all the pictures, I've had some trouble with the formatting in this post -- my apologies.  I am no expert when it comes to this sort of thing.
