Betcha Didn't Know....

I totally stole this from Katie @ Loves of Life. But, today, I needed and wanted something fun and mindless!

Guilty Pleasure? 
"Reality" TV. Think Sister Wives, Top Chef, Project Runway, etc. It's just mindless TV that I can usually watch while knitting, cleaning, or folding laundry, and just veg out. Also, this: 

Pinnacle Whipped Vodka. It tastes like whipped cream and is AMAZING in apple cider, root beer, orange juice, cranberry juice...pretty much anything!

Recent Splurge? 
Does buying blackberries even though they're out of season and expensive count? Seriously though, I don't really buy things for myself very much because it just isn't in the budget. In fact, I was just telling Justin the other day that I think every single one of my sweaters is either a maternity sweater, or I wore while I was pregnant with Lizzy so they're stretched out all funny. In the next month, I do plan on splurging to buy a new dress to wear Christmas Eve/ to Justin's company party.

In bulk, I buy? 
I try to avoid Costco because it's impossible to get out of there spending less than $100. But when we do go, we usually buy diapers, wipes, Black Butte Porter for Justin, cheese, pepperoni, and milk. 

My go-to flower?
I really like purple dutch irises. I prefer the non-bearded irises that look like this: 

Comfort Food? 
This one is hard, because the truth is that I just love food. But, I think it's probably a big bowl of rice, beans, shredded beef, tomatoes, sour cream, cheese, and Cafe Yumm sauce.

For breakfast?
Today, I had coffee, a piece of toast with almond butter, and a little bit of homemade raspberry jam.

For dinner? 
Last night, I tried that boil-in-milk macaroni recipe that's been floating around Pinterest lately. It wasn't my favorite. Tonight, I'll probably just do enchiladas.

Love/hate relationship with? 
I can't think of anything off the top of my head.

Can't stop watching? 
Any guesses? Ha! 
Bones, of course!

Dreaming about? 
Babies. Seriously. I feel like every time I close my eyes, I'm pregnant with triplets. Baby fever might be kicking in a little bit, but we just can't go there yet for a couple different reasons. 

Every girl should have?
A pair of jeans that fit perfectly. I miss the old Gap Long and Lean jeans like crazy. They were in my dream last night too--I bought a pair of the old style ones even they cost $100! 

My style in five words? 
I don't really have a style. I'd be fine living in yoga pants 24/7. I've been trying to follow along with the challenge on Like A Warm Cup of Coffee to get dressed every day. Sweet Sarah Mae said at the beginning of the challenge something like, "Your kids will love it, your husband will love it, and you'll feel better about yourself." I had to laugh to myself, because I'm not sure Justin really ever notices what I'm wearing. In fact, I think he'd be fine if I were in yoga pants and tennis shoes all the time, because it would mean that we could spontaneously play a game of football/softball/whatever at any given time.

I love wearing? 
Yoga pants. Duh. But also, I love the several shirts I have that are actually "tall" shirts. I'm not pulling them down to cover my wrists or pulling the hem down.

Dream Job? 
Being paid to read books and take photos. So, pretty much, what I'm doing now. And it's awesome.


  1. Loved to learn all these abt you.
    So Baby fever huh? well. I'm finally in the TTC Wagon, so...Prayers are welcomed.
    about dressing up, lately all I want to wear are Yoga pants too...they're just so comfy.
    I hope you find the perfect dress for christmas.

  2. holy cow whipped vodka!? that sounds AWESOME. i need some of you in my life to drink delicious things and eat enchiladas with me- those are my FAVORITES. Oh yes.. we can wear yoga pants too.

    I was wondering about the baby thing after some of your most recent pins ;)

  3. I SO feel your pain on the long & lean change and the long shirts. It makes me sad long shirts are not easier to find for women. Such a rare & prized find!

  4. I also heart Pinnacle's Whipped Cream Vodka. The Cotton Candy vodka, though? Icky.

  5. You know, I love these kinds of posts. It's funny that we spend so much time thinking about what to write about but sometimes the "snippets" and "random" posts are my favorite to read of other people.

    Anyway - need to try the vodka...yum! Baby fever - yes! Gap jeans - love! And yoga pants - also my favorite :)

  6. I am really liking Top Chef this season. Reality TV is one of my biggest weaknesses...I could watch it all day everyday.

    Also, I looked for this vodka when I went grocery shopping tonight. It was out of my budget for the week but I wanted to see that my grocery store had it...and they did AND they had a cake flavored variety! I don't know which one to try.

  7. Long and lean were the best. My yoga pants have holes so they are well loved favorites and on my Christmas list!

  8. It's a fun change of pace this little survey--isn't it? :)

  9. This is so fun! B bought some whipped vodka a few months ago for me...i have yet to try it. Might have to change that.

  10. I loved the old Long and Leans! What size do you wear? I have a 12-Long in my closet with the tags still on. I never wore them because I didn't like the color/fading as much my other pair. They are yours if you want them!

  11. Yes Megs! That would be awesome! I'll leave you a comment on your blog :)

  12. Awesome! They've been in my closet for years and I just could not part with them--even though they didn't even fit--because they are such great jeans. lol I'm happy they'll go to a good home. lol
