I have been tagged by Jane of Work That Wardrobe. The guidelines are as follows:
1. Respond and rework. Answer the questions on your blog, replace one question you dislike with a question of your own invention; add a question of your own.
2. Tag eight other un-tagged people.
What is your current obsession?
I really am into owls right now for some reason. There will be another two forthcoming.
Good coffee place?
Lately, I've been all about the Starbucks tall non-fat vanilla creme. It's just skim milk with a shot of vanilla... I figure it can't be that bad for me.
Do you nap a lot?
Who was the last person you hugged?
Katie when we got together on Friday. Thank goodness for good friends!
What’s for dinner?
Ziti and wine followed by strawberries.
If you could be any rock/pop icon for a day who would it be and why? (Jane's question)
I have no idea... Beyonce maybe?
What are you listening to right now?
An old episode of NCIS.
What is your favourite weather?
Spring days where you can wear a dress and light sweater and be comfortable all day.
What’s on your bedside table?
Lamp, clock, lip balm, lotion, pen, remote.
Say something to the person/s who tagged you.
I love how important and central your family is to you. I love your writing style. And, I continually learn new ways to put clothes together through your blog. Thank you!
If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you want it to be?
Favourite vacation spot?
Once upon a time, Bangor Lodge. Now, I'd go with Italy.
Name the things you can’t live without.
Apart from my family and dog it would be some fabric or yarn and needles, a good book and chocolate.
What would you like to have in your hands right now?
Another day off....
What is your favourite tea flavour?
Normally I drink Earl Grey. However, my boss brought this fantastic tea back from Harrod's and I wish I had more of it...
What would you like to get rid of?
The dishes in my kitchen sink.... I wish they did themselves.
If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
To Buffalo to spend a little time with my mom. I miss her.
What did you want to become as a child?
An architect then a politician. Now, I wonder what I was thinking... I'm not that good at math and I'm a pretty introverted person.
What do you miss?
My two dads, my real one and my stepfather. I wish I had more time with them.
What are you reading right now?
A Homemade Life and Bright Lights, Big Ass. Molly has such a great way of talking about the role of food in our lives. Jen has the great ability to make me laugh at mundane things.
What do you fear the most?
Never finding a partner and never having kids.
Admit one thing you feel awful about. Once you have written it down, you are no longer allowed to feel bad.
That I didn't listen to my head, but rather followed my heart, during my last relationship. I think I could have saved myself a lot of heart ache if I had listened to my instincts better.
I'm not tagging anyone... play along if you wish!!
