I had such a perfect weekend, and I hope to post some pictures soon. But I’ll be lazy instead and leave this fun little meme. You should fill it out, too!
What is your current obsession? Wanting to make this blog prettier! It’s driving me nuts!
Do you use canvas or plastic bags when you go shopping? Depends which store
Do you nap a lot? Never.
Who was the last person you hugged? my guy friend
What’s for dinner? An Amy’s microwave dinner. They are delicious!
What was the last thing you bought? A Florentine wooden tray (actually brought back by the shopowner from Italy!)
What are you listening to right now? Slow Club (thanks to the Lays potato chips commercial)
What is your favorite weather? I love weather warm and sunny enough to get me on the lake and better yet, in it. But if I can’t get in a bathing suit, I love 70 degrees with a nice breeze.
What’s on your bedside table? mini speakers, concordance, PB picture frame
If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you want it to be? Oooooh, this question is too difficult to answer. Part of me wants to be near family of course, but the other says Southern California (lovely weather and not very humid). Either way, I would want a home on a lake – perhaps Craftsman-like with partial stone exterior. Maybe some cedar shake siding, too. It would certainly have exposed beams and a number of other things that remind me of Grandma’s. It would be inviting, full of character - not rustic but more casually elegant. Fresh flowers always, within walking distance to a cute town with fantastic flea and farmers markets.
Favorite vacation spot? Branson, Missouri. I know what you’re thinking, but Table Rock Lake is amazing, and it’s the one place I don’t mind eating at the same restaurants over and over again. Now I’m in the mood for frozen custard, and I miss my friends.
Name the things you can’t live without: Jesus Christ dwelling in me, my family and friends, delicious food, décor magazines, Arm & Hammer baking soda toothpaste, peanut butter
What would you like to have in your hands right now? It’s about to be my Bible for an evening quiet time.
What is your favorite tea flavor? I’m not a tea drinker, but I once almost enjoyed a peach truffle tea at the Willard. And I would pretend to like tea again if it meant going back to Crown & Crumpet in San Francisco.
What is your favorite book? Currently my favorite book is “Secrets of the Secret Place”. It’s wonderful.
If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go? Grandma’s house
What did you want to become as a child? Many things, but the things that seemed to stick the longest were: mom, teacher, interior designer.
What is your favorite sport to play? Waterskiing, but you don’t exactly “play” that. So I’ll go with golf, but I’d like to get back into tennis.
What was your favorite concert you attended? U2 – which reminds me that tickets just went on sale for their next tour!!
What is your favorite flower? Currently – French tulips
What are the top three things you must have in your carry on? Magazine, iPod, sunglasses
