***I tried to be clever-er-er by adding photos to my answers, but they made the spacing kind of funky. LAME.
Alicia at It Aint Easy Being Cheesy tagged me for this fun blog that is all about ME.
Here are the rules:

1. Respond and rework; answer the questions on your blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your invention, add one more question of your own.
2. Tag other people.Sounds simple enough, right?

What is your current obsession? Current obsessions are Kool Aid and popsicles. They're the only things that get me through these miserable Phoenix summers. Why did I move from Huntington Beach? Can someone please remind me? Thanks.

What are you wearing today? Bootcut jeans, a blueish dress that I've turned into a top (I'm too tall to wear it as a dress without being scandalous), zebra headband, zebra purse, black sandals.

What’s for dinner? LisaG Pizza night! Once a week Lisa makes the MOST delicious pizzas. My mom and I are going to have one. Hooray! It's also psychic night at LisaG. I hope psychic Joe has some good things to tell me.

What would you eat for your last meal? First course: Chicken d'Van with rice, my FAVORITE meal EVER. Second course: Haagen Dazs Ice Cream. Third Course: Creme Brulee. Fourth Course: Popcorn. I would wash it all down with Veuve Cliquot and Jordan Cabernet.

What are you listening to right now? Going back and forth between Conor Oberst and Ben Kweller.

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go? A beach in Bali.

Which language do you want to learn? Arabic. I really want to learn how to write it. I think it's the prettiest language on paper.

What do you love most about where you currently live? Eesh. I really don't like Phoenix that much. Sorry to say. :( I like that I own my condo (yay equity!) and I love that I'm super close to Julie's house. I'm learning to like it more and more. I love the Central Phoenix community.

What style is your current home decorated in? See for yourself! My living room is decorated in tans, reds and blacks. My bedroom is shabby chic to the max. I love distressed beachy furniture.

If you were a time traveler what era would you live in? It would be a difficult choice between the 20's and the late 19th century. I think flappers are so cool but was (am) obsessed with Little House on the Prairie. I would love to be Laura Ingalls Wilder's BFF. WE could braid each others hair, play with Jack (the dog), swoon over Almonzo (we call him Manny) and help Mary around because she is blind.

What is your favorite color? Pink. Pink. Pink.

What is your favorite piece of clothing in your own wardrobe? A pair of old navy sweats.

What were you doing ten years ago? Cruising around in Courtney's Jeep, top down, driving to San Onofre to go surfing with the Light House Crew, coming back in the evenings to sling fritters at the Shenandoah Cafe.

If you had $300 now, what would you spend it on? Clothes. Mine are looking very tattered lately. :(

What are you going to do after this? Hanging out with mom.
What are your favorite films?
The Philadelphia Story
How to Marry A Millionaire
You've Got Mail.

Your favorite books?
The Alchemist
Little Black Sambo
I also love ANYTHING written by Jen Lancaster.
I think we're BFF soul mates. I want to star in the movie of her life so that we can drink massive amounts of wine and be snarky all day.

Do you collect anything? All of the women in my family collect Halcyon Days boxes.

What makes you follow a blog? I love blogs. I will follow if I like their posts, photos, art, or if I know the person for-the-reals. It's my favorite way to keep up on everyone's lives.

What was the most enjoyable thing you did today? Enjoyed a latte from Starbucks and ate a delicious fruit salad.

Ann's Question:What makes you comment on a blog? If I read something that I can relate to or add to?

Amy's Question:What is your favorite thing to do when you have some free time? I love reading. And floating in the pool, and reading while floating in the pool.

Annissa's Question:As you know I homeschool -- If you could would you? Do you agree with homeschooling? I don't agree or disagree with homeschooling. I think it totally depends on the school district you're in and how well you function as a teacher. I know that I couldn't do it, and I agree with Alicia that the social interaction at school is VERY important in developing social skills.

Tonya's Question:What is a talent you wished you had? I wish I could play the piano.

Kyooty's Question: If you could be any animal other than a human, what would you be? A dolphin!

Carrin's Question: Rush just told me that by 2042, white people will be the minority. Do you believe that? Would that be a big deal to you? I absolutely believe it, and I think it's a good thing. Let's mix it all up baby! I'm SO weary of labels based on gender, sexual preference, race, ethnicity. I think they're detrimental to democracy, society and life in general.

isabel's Question: Would you want your blog to be as popular as Dooce? What would be some of the pros and cons? Of course I would want my blog to be popular, how flattering would that be?! Spoken like a true narcissist. LOVE ME LOVE ME LOVE ME! Tell me I'm pretty and wanted and liked. :) <--- Pros. Cons- Pressure to write well and often.

Beth's Question: What made you start writing a blog in the first place? A lot of my married w/ kids friends started blogging and I always thought it was cute. I didn't feel like I really had much to share living the single life but THEN when I bought my condo last summer everyone back home in CA wanted to see what it looked like. That is when I decided to blog. Since then it has turned into my favorite place to vent and speak and share. I love that I can say what I want and people can read it, or not!
Alicia's Question: What fad do you wish was popular again? Hoop skirts a'la Gone With the Wind.

Taylor's Question: Which celebrity do people say you resemble most? Drew Barrymore and Anna Nicole Smith.

And I'm stealing my closing line from Alicia at It Aint Easy Being Cheesy -alicious:
Aren't you so glad you know all that about me now!
I bet you will sleep soooo much better tonight!

I'm passing this to Annie at Chapters of Our Life. Go do it!
