To Know You

Yesterday this little bloggy hit 200 followers and I can't tell you how excited that makes me! (What makes me even more excited is that I know there are more readers that registered as followers!)
While I can go on and on about how much I heart & appreciate you and host giveaways to thank you, one of the most rewarding things is getting to know you a little more. I had lots of fun reading through your answers here and here and can't wait to read your answers to today's!

Lately I've been listening to:
Grace Potter & The Nocturnals; Florence & The Machine; Bon Iver; Sigur Ros; Jack Johnson; Brett Dennen.
Honestly, I haven't found anything fabulous lately and would really like to, so if you have some suggestions I'd love to hear them!

I stayed up way too late last night finishing The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest, I haven't decided what my next read is.

Dresses, I have to wear a uniform at work so when I get done I live my life in dresses.

Not a ton of TV, we've been pretty busy lately, but I love Intervention & Criminal Minds (in addition to some trashy shows like Teen Mom and Sixteen and Pregnant)

BLUEBERRIES! Jus & I love frozen blueberries and we go through them like crazy. And ice cream, I always try to get Jus to make a meal out of ice cream and we eat ice cream 4 or 5 times a week.

Working on:
Wedding stuff, wedding stuff, wedding stuff, and a little on our back hall.

Ok, your turn!

PS Don't forget to sign up for the giveaway!

aw, I love this post! I love following bloggers who actually give a crap about other bloggers, wanting to get to know them!

Lately I've been listening to:
lots of country music! I've been on a country kick lately... my top new favorites are Miranda Lambert's "The House That Built Me" and Lady Antebellum's "Our Kind Of Love." - you'll totally love that one, if you like country.

I recently finished the Sookie Stackhouse series, so I'm reading something lighter - Sarah Silverman's Bedwetter.

it seems that all I wear now are workout clothes! haha!

oh gosh, everything. Top Chef (especially since it's in DC this year), Hell's Kitchen, HGTV's Design Star, Army Wives, Deadliest Catch, Intervention, and of course... True Blood. <3

healthy food! turkey sandwiches on wheat bread, apples and grapes, lots of yogurt.

Working on:
getting ready for our vacation! we're trying to get the house spic and span for the girl who will be watching our cats while we're away. and laundry. that shit never ends.
