11 Facts

So a few days ago one of my fav bloggers (and a wonderful friend as well) Meghan posted 11 facts about herself and basically tagged anyone who wanted to join in.  So I decided today would be a great day to play!

  1. When I get home for the day (or while I am getting ready for the day) I am in my PJs.  I don't hang around my house in the clothes I wear out of the house because PJs are SO much more comfy. But don't worry, I don't wear my PJs out of the house!
  2. I'm pretty sure my favorite smell is the way a bookstore smells.  Fresh books waiting to be opened, read and enjoyed... there really is nothing better.
  3. I can't imagine my life without Monte. Sometimes I cuddle up with him and just thank my lucky stars I have such a sweet pup.
  4. I have no idea when the Superbowl is, who's playing in it (or if that's even been decided yet) and I don't even care about the commercials and food.  I hope I work that day.
  5. My beauty staple, as I've said before, is Sally Hansen's Insta-Dri topcoat. Without it I would probably never paint my fingernails.
  6. I love politics. But I hate politics. I'm already so tired of the mud flinging and it's only the tip of the iceberg. And on top of that, I wish so much it can stop being about political parties and just be about GETTING THINGS DONE.
  7. I rock out when I'm driving in the car. It's more than a little embarrassing.
  8. The only fish that I like is from Long John Silver. Which is fast food fish. I'm classy.
  9. Every Sunday I have to check out PostSecret. And on more than one occasion someone's secret has made me cry.
  10. I'm almost done with school and have no idea how to go about search for a "real" job. Help!
  11. It doesn't matter how sleepy I am, I have to read at least a page in the book I'm currently reading before I go to sleep.
So there you have it, 11 facts about yours truly!  I'm not going to tag anyone in this, if you want to play along go for it!

P.S. The winner of the Vivien Frank giveaway is Ang of Football, Sushi and the Pursuit of Happiness!  Ang, I'll forward your info along to Simona and you should hear from her shortly!

I'm with you on the PJs, I love the smell of books too, more so old ones then new ones :) And I love your idea of reading a page no matter how tired you are. That's pretty great advice, I'll see if I can follow!


I used to check Postsecret EVERY week! I forget now. :/

Jamie Leigh

I also rock out in the car! Best place to do it right? :)


I always put my PJ's po as soon as i'm home. I've even been known, when i was a teenager to just put boots and a coat on over the top and go to the local shop for chocolate...and the book smell! I love the smell of second hand books too, i was told that the smell of old books is actually mold on the ages....eeeeeek!

Mrs. Pancakes

Love your answers and I agree I have "home" clothes and "going" our clothes,,..home clothes are just so much more comfortable!! Have an awesome weekend!


I love being in my pjs too, why get dressed if i am not going anywhere?

I am a huge bookworm too, seriously as much as you, i got through numerous books a month. I read EVERY SINGLE DAY/NIGHT before going to sleep, drives my fiance crazy but i can't sleep if i haven't read a chapter or 2.

i have to be completely drunk & passing out in order not to read & that doesn't happen very often.


I'm ALWAYS in pj's too, and a housecoat! Or something similar, like sweats, shorts, etc. People who wear jeans when at home-I don't get you! ;)


I think I might have to have a PJ day today now that you've mentioned it! I love the smell of brand new books that have a lot of photographs in, there's something about the smell, so yummy. The same can be said about text books. I really don't get politics either, well I use to understand British politics, but the American stuff just confuses me.


Haha! We are so alike. I always end up in my PJ's once I decide that I'm home for the day - so much comfier! :)


yay! congrats to the winner!

I check postsercet too, weekly. I don't know what i'd do without that site. Sending my own in is on my bucket list....

Angela [Simply Simple Me]

I've been getting in to my PJs as soon as I get home lately!

I agree, I don't know what I'd do without my kitty. <3

Dancing Branflake

Yes oh yes on the reading things before sleeping. My mind cannot rest until I feel there is a conclusion. I'm so happy you're almost done with school. Whew! It's been a journey, hasn't it?


Last year I bought a bunch of cute, luxurious PJs to lounge in. I put them on as soon as I get home from work/the gym!I look better at home than I do on the street hahaha

Oh yeah, and I hate football too.


i'm glad i'm not the only one to putts around the house in pjs. the first thing i do when i get home from work is change into my pjs!


i love to rock out in the car with my sister! but that's about the only person i will do it with, ha.

i too love to wear my pj's...but never out of the house! (i think i wore them to the neighbor's to feed horses like, once)



I love # 7! #2 is awesome too.

Mr. Taylor and his Lady

ha, i love this. i might just have to do one sometime. and don't worry, i actually DO wear my pajamas outdoors, especially if i'm making a late night run to the grocery store for some ice cream. and nothing is better than rocking out in the car. i don't care who stares :)

I love the way new books smell too. They need to bottle that smell so I can make my house smell like a bookstore. Oh and I am sooo with you on politics. I was a poli sci major in college so I love politics but it also drives me crazy.

Claire Kiefer

Man, I looooove football! But I was just like you a few years ago: I had no interest in it and knew nothing about it. But then I watched Friday Night Lights (the tv show) and learned how the game worked and now I am a die-hard Saints fan! It has become such a source of joy for me. :)

I love and hate politics too. I'm very passionate about it, especially social justice issues, but I hate the arguments that inevitably happen on facebook during election season!

Lena at A Crimson Kiss

I LOVE that I'm not the only person who lives in their pjs at home!


i LOVE postsecret.
and i always cry hahaa

Rachel Cotterill

I always try to read before bed, too. But sometimes I'm so tired that I fall asleep holding my kindle!


I'm with you on putting on the pj's when I know I'm done for the day! Can't resist them!


I'm the exact same way about finishing the page, even if it takes me forever because my eyes won't stay open! And most days it's pjs for me when I get home too, which can be awkward if my doorbell rings and it's only 4:00. :)


I love your answers. I also rock pjs the moment I get in and have been known to rock out in cars. I don't have one any longer, so I just rock out in my friend's cars instead :)

Also, real world sucks. Hold off on that as long as you can. Seriously.


eleven facts about me..

1. i got a kindle for christmas, and am unsure if i am happy about it. i love the smell, feel and fact of turning a page in a book. i know it will come in handy for traveling, but there is nothing like a real book.
2. i would wear my sweats to work if i could. even though i do enjoy dressing up, sometimes when you just aren't feeling good sweats are the only thing that sound good.
3. i've only told three guys in my life that i love them and have meant it.
4. i've been engaged and had the most perfect ring, it was so hard giving it back. i don't know how i'll be able to find a new ring that i'll like when i do get married.
5. if it's my choice, i'd rather drink beer. then wine. then liquor. i know, i'm a weird girl.
6. i love MMA and UFC fights. i know a lot about it and am very proud of it.
7. music speaks to me in a way that i feel it doesn't to others.
8. i hate driving. i used to love it but now it gives me terrible anxiety.
9. even with my depression, anxiety and panic attacks, i am getting better and not worrying as much and thinking of my future. i'm living day to day.
10. i'm addicted to diet pepsi
11. i sometimes sleep with one leg up and over the other. like as if i'm sitting up right and have my foot ontop of my knee (like how guys normally cross their legs?) yup. weird, but totally true. cute guy laughs and things it is so cute.

i love that when you get home you get right into pjs. i totally do the same thing.

the only fish i like is in sushi, totally weird i know. but the sushi has to be in soy paper or else i have to try my absolute hardest not to think about the seaweed in my mouth.

i am starting to understand your feelings of monte with my little mia. i was holding her on the porch the other day and just thinking how incredibly lucky i am to have this spunky little pup in my midst. and she definitely loves her mama which makes me oh so happy :)

love you!
