Let's Play Some Tag

and I'm IT!

My friend Amy (you can read her blog here: dandelion paperweight) tagged me in a lil game of blogger tag where you answer questions asked by your tagger and then tag others. I don't really have any other blog friends to tag (except for a few blogs I stalk and they don't really know me so I'd be embarrased to tag them), but I'm definitely up for answering some questions! And it's perfect timing as I'm taking my lunch break and I always enjoy talking about myself.

Here they are asked by Amy:

1. If you could live anywhere, where would you live and why?

Wowza. This is tough. I love living here in Sunny Calfornia because I need to live close to my parents, siblings and close friends. I am extremely close with my family and not being able to see them all the time would kill me, BUT ideally, I'd love to live oversea's outside of London somewhere at least once in my life. It's such a different lifestyle over there; they are much more relaxed, open and live a slower paced lifestyle. I want a beautiful cottage style country home with lots of land for my kids to run and around in. It would be AMAZING. But let's start by visiting Europe before I move myself there. Maybe in a house like this:

And by cottage, I guess I meant big fancy mansion in London. Yea, this.

2. If you couldn't have the job you have now, what would you want to do for work?

Depends. Am I being realistic or can I have any job I want? There are so many things I want to do, but if I had to pick one, I'd love to be a screenwriter. I am constantly writing screenplays in my head, but I have the hardest time getting them on paper. I'm still working on making that dream a reality, but another dream of mine is to open my own restaurant and have my own make-up line. Someday my friends. Someday.

3. What is the one blog you look forward to reading each day and why?

This is easy, I love OMG I'm a Mom and Amy's blog dandelion paperweight. Those are the only two I read every post but there are others I read when I have time.

4. What would you call your personal style?

Wow. I don't know what to say. I love fashion and clothes, but I really don't spend a lot of time thinking about it because I can't anymore. I usually choose comfort over style (or a combination of the two really) but if I gave it a title, it would be "Working Momma Simple & Comfy." I'm usually working so I have to wear nice pants, and an appropriate top but I'll pair it with some comfy sandal's and a cozy sweater. And just jeans on the weekend with the same tops and cozy sweaters. And I could live in my ugg boots and or flip flops. I'm not good with heels, I'm too clumsy. I can do boots with a little heel though.

5. Who had the biggest influence on you growing up and why?

These are tough! I don't know. I guess my mom, or actually both my parents. I know a lot of who I am I can pin point to one or both of my parents (both good and bad influences). My friends also had a huge influence on me growing up. When you are at those vulnerable ages, you emulate your friends and want to impress them, or be like them so I owe a lot to them. As an adult, it definitely shows I've become my parents. OMG. Here they are:

And here is a picture of me with my closest group of friends (Amy on left, Laura, Me, Roxanne)

Lunch break is almost over. Did I mention today is FRIDAY!? I can't wait to see my Peanut Head after work and kiss him and squeeze him, and spend the WHOLE weekend with him! We're carving pumpkin's and making pumpkin pie, and cleaning. I love me some FRIDAY.

Have a good weekend all! And by all I mean ALL 3 of you who may or may not read this. :)
