i was right. the scarf swap was so much fun! 🙂 to be honest, i’d almost completely forgotten to be on the lookout for my scarf in the mail. i just happened to check the mail on our way out the door to a concert saturday night, and just what did i find there? my new scarf from my swap partner, paige! so i threw it around my neck, & it made my boring outfit way cuter. it’s so cute– a pretty maroonish color with a very subtle pattern. if only i’d had my camera with me! i did remember to take a quick snapshot on my way out the door when i wore it to school yesterday.
it’s a lucky thing i remembered it yesterday, too! it got pretty windy and verrry rainy when the hubster & i went downtown for a quick trip to urban & then the mellow mushroom for lunch. so my scarf swap partner pagie is mega cool. go check out her blog & see the pretty pictures from her beautiful wedding, and posts of her cutie pie niece. 🙂
while i was visiting her blog, i found this, and me being me, i just couldn’t resist:
one letter at a time…
A–age: i’m 28, and i’m staying that way til i turn 30.
B–bed size: king. that’s why we let the dogs sneak into bed with us.
C–chore you hate: LAUNDRY. i hate, loathe, despise, and abominate laundry.
D–dog’s name: axl and lola
E–essential start-your-day item: coffee!
F–favorite color: i love pink.
G–gold or silver or platinum: platinum, please.
H–height: 5’3″ (i’m rounding up…heh…)
I–instruments you play: piano & guitar. you didn’t say i had to play them *well* did you? b/c i definitely could use some guitar lessons…
J–job title: full time student. i’m looking for some part-time work, though. my original plan after quitting real estate was to substitute teach, but how can i get up at 5am when i can’t even sleep at night?
K–kid(s): none, thanks. maybe one day, but right now, no. we’ll stick with furbabies.
L–living arrangements: my dogs own a 4-bedroom, 2.5-bath home in lovely south carolina, and they allow us to live with them. bless their little hearts.
M–mom’s name: lisa (same as paige! funny!)
N–nickname(s): tiff, tiffy, flossy mae (that one’s my papaw’s creation)
O–overnight hospital stay other than birth: umm…i guess when i was little & had kidney problems. i think i was two.
P–pet peeve: ignorance.
Q–quote from a movie: “letting everyone down would be my greatest unhappiness.” ~marie antoinette
R–righty or lefty: righty
S–siblings: one sister, foxycleopatra. and a brother-in-law (the hubster’s brother).
T–time you wake up: on mon/wed/fri, i get up at 8:30am for school. tues/thurs i get up whenever i feel like it. i don’t have school til 6pm those days.
U–underwear: victoria’s secret. today they’re an apricot color with tiny white scrolls all around.
V–vegetable you dislike: i really love vegetables. i suppose the one i like the least would be cauliflower.
W–ways you run late: thinking i need less time than i actually do, hitting snooze, waiting on the hubster, forgetting stuff…
X–x-rays you’ve had: lungs, knee, teeth…i think that’s all.
Y–yummy food you make: the last thing i made that was really yummy was a chicken soup with pastina. it had a really zingy lemony flavor with spinach and feta, and it’s fairly easy, as it’s made with a rotisserie chicken.
Z–zoo favorite: gorillas & other monkeys. they’re so much fun to watch!! gorillas just look like really furry people when they move around and make gestures & stuff. so fun.
download this: “angel from montgomery” by john prine (not sung by bonnie raitt. sung by john prine.) i’ve been listening to this song a lot lately for some reason. then i remembered kristen stewart sings it in “into the wild,” and she does a really good job. it’s a great song.
today’s fave etsy item: mr. & mrs. scatter pillows by idotakeu. there’ve been so many weddings lately, i figured a wedding-themed item would be good. wouldn’t this be a cute wedding gift? hmm…i’ve another one to attend this saturday… 😉
