about me: 10 questions

hi all!  a few weeks ago i was tagged by the awesome erin from:

 Just a Few of My Favorite Things

i was so happy and honored to be tagged.  it was my first time and it made me feel like a real blogger.  it was pretty awesome.  here's what you do:

* Post these rules
* Answer the 10 questions that the tagger posted for you
* Create 10 questions of your own to ask the people that you're about to tag
* Tag 10 people and link them with your post (and let them know they've been tagged!)

  1. What’s the #1 most played song on your iPod? 
 hallelujah by rufus wainwright.  i'm actually kind of cheating with this because i really just look it up on youtube.  i do LOVE the song though

2. What is your favorite book?

the great gatsby.  it has it all.  love, money, great fashion, murder and the roaring 20's

3. What is your favorite vacation spot and why?

hualtuco, mexcico.  king louie and i went there in november 2011 and it was amazing.

4. If you weren't working (or studying) in your current field, what would you be doing?

i wish i would have majored in library sciences.  i was an english lit major and love books.  being surrounded by books and people who like to read all day sounds like a dream come true!

5. List five blogs you like to read!

it always make me smile and think about yummy cake
this girl is freaking hilarious and is going to have a baby soon
just a few of my favorite things!
this isn't just because she tagged me to do this and made my day.  she has the best pinteresting wednesday posts.  i also wish i could go shopping with her because she has a great sense of style
amanda always comments on my posts (thank you, amanda) and always has positive things to blog about
healthy tipping point
while i don't run and don't always agree with caitlin's philospohies, i find her blog interesting and thought provoking.

6. What is your favorite thing to do on the weekend?

sleep and lay on the couch with king louie catching up on my dvr, ignoring piles of laundry, a dirty bathroom and the rest of the world in general.

7. If you could only shop at one store for the rest of your life, which would it be and why?

i would shop at j. crew.  this is funny because i never shop there now but that is only due to to the fact that i can't afford it.  i'm assuming that this question refers to clothing store.

8. What is your favorite dessert?

anything with butter cream icing.  brownies, cake or just off a spoon

9. If you were stranded on a deserted island and could have three things with you, what
would they be and why?

 the blue friends, my journal and pop tarts

 10. What is the last concert you attended?

mr. blotto.  they're a local jam band that king louie loves.  i tolerate them and occasionally go to a show because i'm just that nice.  it has been a long time though.

and now for the people i'm tagging.  i hope you find my questions interesting and are happy that i tagged you.  thanks for writing such great blogs to read and being wonderful people to get to know!

and now my questions.  i hope you like them.  i liked coming up with them:

  1. would you rather be able to dance, sing or draw?
  2. on pinterest, would you rather have the clothes you pinned appear in your closet, the decor you pinned show up in your house (and you can change it as you please) or have the recipes you pinned show up on your kitchen table?
  3. for the next five years, which five countries would you like to live in, changing every year (you would still work and have a life.  this is not a vacation.  feel free to state a city too)?
  4. for the next five years, which five states would you like to live in, changing every year (you would still work and have a life.  this is not a vacation.  feel free to state a city too)?
  5. in what event would you most like to win an olympic gold medal?
  6. which disney princess do you want to be?
  7. if you were hosting snl, who would you want to be the musical guest?
  8. if you could take one class at hogwarts, what would it be?
  9. would you rather have the power to see the future or fix the past?
  10. what is your favorite pop tart flavor (i'm running out of creative juices for questions and well you know, i'm a fan)?
