The Blah-ness has got me.

Sorry guys, I'm still feeling blah. I'm trying to kick it I promise, but between my sinuses being stuffy, my hands being freezing, and my brain being tired and filled with wedding ideas it just isn't happening.
I found this little ditty on Notebook Doodles and I can't tell you how much I love things like this. Seriously, I was the kid in school that would ALWAYS forward the surveys that got emailed to me.

1. what is your current obsession?
Weddings weddings weddings
Heart shoes I want them so so so bad. I will wear them in my engagement photos and look lovely.
(See I told you they were lovely!)

2. what are you wearing today?
My matching christmas jammies (we get new jammies every Christmas Eve)
Edie & I in our Christmas jammies

3. what’s for dinner?
Philly Chili, my dad's family's traditional Christmas Eve meal. My dad dropped off all of the fixings last week when I was super sick and we never had it. Egg noodles topped with chili, sour cream, onions & cheddar cheese.

4. what’s the last thing you bought?
Dog food & big plastic bins to hold our Christmas decorations....BOOOOORRRRING

5. what are you listening to right now?
Jus playing the guitar

6. what do you think about the person who tagged you?
She tagged all of her readers but she is seriously, seriously good at giving me some inspiration. Have you checked out Notebook Doodles yet?

7. if you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be?
Fiji, or Nashville, or Northern Michigan.

8. one thing you wanna change about yourself?
I'd like to be a better housekeeper, we suck sometimes.

9. if you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
Maybe somewhere warm where I could have some yummy seafood, our thermostat got turned down to 65 and I am shivering.

10. which language do you want to learn?
Italian, two semesters in college were not enough

11. what’s your favourite quote?
"Ride your own ride" My mom used to say this to me all the time when I was showing horses, I would always worry about what everyone else was doing and my mom would tell me to forget about everyone else and ride my own ride. She still tells me this.

12. what is the right way to avoid people who purposefully hurt you?
Ignoring them?

13. what are you afraid of the most?
SNAKES and the dark.

14. who do you want to meet right now?
I'd like to meet someone new that wanted to be my friend, as pathetic as that sounds.

15. what is your favourite color?
Purple. I had a cat named Purple when I was little, he was orange.

16. give us 3 styling tips that work for you.
Try to keep your clothes to what you like, don't just follow trends. Try to keep some whimsy (I'm actually really bad about this). Layers keep you warm (can you tell I'm freezing right now?)

17. what is your dream job?
Professional reader, Baker, Designer.

18. what’s your favorite magazine?
ReadyMade and MS Weddings

19. if you had $100 now, what would you spend it on?
A dress for our engagement pictures, sushi, something awesome on Etsy.

20. what do you consider a fashion faux pas?
When 13 year olds wear 80s fashions...

21. who according to you is the most over-rated writer?
Um....Danielle Steele and the other people that write such fluffy love stories. There are so many awesome books it kinda breaks my heart that people read these things.

22. what brings a smile on your face instantly?
Jus. Getting comments on my blog. When Jus says I'm cute.

23. a word that you say a lot?
Goober, I pretty much use that exclusively when talking to Edie & children under the age of 5.

24. what kind of haircut do you prefer?
A bob, but curly hair & bobs don't mix, which is lucky for Jus cause bobs aren't his thing.

25. what are you going to do after this?
Eat dinner & watch TV I guess.

26. what do you do when you are feeling low or terribly depressed?
Shopping usually helps but being around the people I love helps more.

27. what makes you go wild?
Good music, good presents, good food, dancing.

28. what are your favourite movies?
Almost Famous & 500 Days of Summer

29. what inspires you?
Other people. There are so many talented people in the world.

30. what do your friends call you most commonly?
Cole or the longer not very hard version to figure out.

31. would you prefer coffee or tea?
Coffee, I drink approx. 6-8 cups a day.

32. which other blogs do you love visiting?
All of the ones that are listed to the right. Especially You are my Fave and Design*Sponge and Weddingbee and Jen loves Kev

33. favorite dessert/sweet?
Ice cream, I will never, ever turn down ice cream.

34. how many tabs are turned on in your browser right now?
3, mostly just to get the links I added.

35. when you looked at yourself in the mirror today, what was the first thing you thought?
Medusa hair, the same thing I think every morning. Along with bobs, morning hair is not easily facilitated by curly hair.

36. favorite season?
Fall, Summer & Winter tie for 2nd and I really hate Spring (I know, crazy, but we don't really get spring in Northern Indiana. We get snow, grey, snow, snow, grey, mud, mud, grey, 90s. And I hate any temperature between 55-80. Yeah, I know I'm weird.)

37. one wish that you really want to see it come true?
That Jus & I are able to open up a business after the wedding and that we love each other until we are at least octogenarians.

38. what breaks your heart?
When women look for validation in men, I can't stand that people can't love themselves for who they are.
And the old, sad dogs at the pound, mainly because I can't take them home.

39. what's one thing you really want to do in life?
Be happy. That's it.
