»52«



52 is a series where I answer a question every week. These are a bunch of questions that I just found and put in a randomizer. Hopefully I don't sound like an idiot in most of these.

»OH NOES, I'm late. I caught a horrible cold yesterday and I didn't post, but here it is better late than never.«

Question 5: If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?

I'd like to get out of my comfort zone, and travel the world. I have few places I'd like to go and see.

I'd like to see the 7 Wonders of the Natural World to start out. I want to be able to say that I went the Grand Canyon, that I swam with sharks in the Great Barrier Reef. That I saw the Aurora or stood at the bottom of Mount Everest. To be able to see these sights would be amazing. I'd like to take a private cruise though the Caribbean on a boat stoping in various ports like pirates used too. I'd like visit temples in Japan and I'd like to visit so many places in London. I'd like to stay in a ski lodge in the Alps, and I'd like to watch the stars at night from a tent.

As far as my next vacation, I'm going to New York City. Its a place I've been before, but I never get tired of it. We'll be going in March and I honestly can't wait.

Where would your dream trip be? Where do you want to go? Let me know!

Question 4: If you could be any age for a week, what age would you be and why?

Oh! Wow, honestly this is a tough question. I've been thinking about it, and I really don't think I'd spend a week as another age. I'm pretty happy with how I am now. But if I absolutely no choice and had to be another age for a week, I'd be probably either 13 for a week or for 18 for a week. Now hear me out, I picked these ages because of the potential a person has at these ages.

When you're thirteen you have this incredible abilty to just meet new people. Espcially if I was going to 13 with the knowledge that I have now. It would have been so much eaiser making friends. Everyone is awkward, and everyone is mean because of it. I would call so many of my so called friends out on so much bullshit. There are good people there but because of everyone being so awkward and so confused about being at that age. Knowing what I know now, but being 13, would have been amazing. If it was a me going back in time but stuck in my 13 year old body, I would have made so many changes about who I hung out with and what I did, and how I would go about living my life from that point forward.

The same goes for being 18. I will say that if I was 18 again, I would have just enjoyed it. 18 was such a carefree time for me. I had just met Rob, and knowing that the feeling in my gut about being in love with him and spending the rest of my life with him was right, would have saved a lot of stress. I would have done a lot more of out going things, and just enjoy being 18 again.

It's sad to think that hindsight is 20/20, but I think that if had to be those ages again, I would ultimatly just go with the flow. That or be more addicted to the internet than I am already and locked in my room glued to tumblr.

Question 3: What are three things that you regret not learning to do?

I'm going to preface this by saying with the exception of one of these, I can still learn. I still have the time to learn these things and one day, I will.

The first thing I regret not learning is how to make homemade biscuits from my grandmother. I watched her make those wonderful pieces of buttery goodness plenty of times, and I remember asking her how to do it, but I never was able to make them just like she did. To be honest, no one in my family was able to recreate those buscuits after she passed even though they did actually learn from her, but I guess that's how food is growing up. The original is the best and that it can't be recreated.

Another thing I regret not learning is another language. I took classes in high school and my short stint in college, but nothing ever stuck with me. I took German in high school, but my Frau was the bitch of the school, that no one liked, and I couldn't pay attention. In college, I took Spanish, and I had no interest in it. But like I said, I always have time to learn another language. If I try again, I want to learn French.

Lastly, the final thing I regret not learning is some sort of talent you learn as a kid. Like how to do a cartwheel, or how to juggle. I know its kind of frivolus and silly, but I think that if I were to ever had kids, I can show them how to do that.

What's something that you regret not learning?

Week 2: Do you feel close to the other members of your family?

Family is always a little funny talk about. Some people are okay about being open about it. I'm being a little vauge here because I'm not sure my what my family would be okay being on the internet. Just so you know.

I think it all depends on which family member is it and what side of the family do they come from! Out of all my biological family, I'm closest to my Mom. She's my best friend and my sounding board when Rob's available or doesn't want to listen. I feel pretty close with my Dad as well because I consider myself a daddy's girl. I always get this choked up feeling whenever I think about him. My Brother Bryan, while I feel close to, is a very private and closed off person. You kind of have to pry it out of him in order to get any kind of understanding of where he's coming from.

As far as the rest of my family goes, I will have to say I'm much closer to my Mom's side of the family then my Dad's. On my mom's side, we have more get-togethers than anything and we have more family outings for things like birthday dinners or parties for like holidays. Even with extended family on that side, I'm prone to feel more excited about seeing them. On my Dad's side however, there is just a giant clash of personalities/religions/political standpoints and that make it a little uncomfortable to be around. I still like being with that family, but just not as much because of all those differences.

Have a good Thursday!

❖ whats in my bag

I have a love/hate relationship with purses. I'm so picky about them! A purse has to meet a certain requirements in order for me to use it, but I also have to have the ability to be able to just take one thing out so I don't have to lug the armory everywhere with me. Just so you know what kind of requirements my purse has to meet, here you go: 

☑ Has to be a crossbody bag.
☑ Has to be able to close and not look like it's bursting at the seams. 
☑ Has to be able to carry all my things. 
☑ Has to be able to fit my personality/ clothing choices 87% of the time.

Non requirements but pluses.

✓ Leather or faux leather is always nice.
✓ If a pattern, must be brightly colored. 
✓ Must have a nice small pocket to fit keys and phone. 

My current bag, Jo Tote's Betsy in Mustard is perfect. It fits all the crap I tote around. Its a pretty color, and I get complements all over the place for it. Here's what's in it. 

It fits! All the crap fits! Here it is all laid out. 

Clockwise from left:
Vera Bradley Coin Purse in Mod Floral Blue (Color is now retired)
This little thing holds all my little toiletries that I need to have on a day to day basis. 
Rayban Wayfarers and an Urban Outfitters Glasses case. 
iPad Mini 16 GB in White with Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Folio in Purple (for blogging on the go)
Nintendo 3DS in Purple and case and stylus.
iPhone 5 16GB in White with Case of Identity case.
Work Badge (blah) 
Vera Bradley Smartphone Wristlet in Marina Paisley (color is also now retired, so bummed out)
Bear Claw Back Scratcher (this thing is amazing!) 
One of my favorite pens of all times, the Pilot precise V5
*not pictured: My Canon Power Shot SX500 IS


Thats a lot of junk in the purse. And as much as I love my current purse, I feel like I need something a little bit smaller/something a little different. I've been searching high and low for another purse that can fit it all. Here are my top three choices for the NEXT bag.


purses I want

purses I want by kbrehaut featuring tote bags on polyvore

I think its crazy that the two of the bags I want are again from Jo Totes. They just have a great product with their bags. I'm pretty sure that I'm going to go with the Abby in Black because I want something a bit understated right now. I've just got to put aside some money for the next couple of weeks so I can save up for it.

So if you are a tote/satchel/purse carrying person, what are your favorite types?

So YO! This post contains no affiliate links or anything like that making me money. Every thing in my pictures above is something I've purchased or was gifted by a family member. Links in the post are provided in case you want to know where I got it from!

Question One: What would make up the PERFECT day for you?

What would make the perfect day? Well, it would start off waking up in one of the most comfortable beds in the world. A high end hotel king sized in the comfort of my own home with tons of pillows and a heavy down comforter. Soon, a cup of coffee would be less than an arm's length away while I typed a blog post on the back porch watching the world wake up on a cool, spring (or fall) day. After my morning cup of coffee, some time would be spent doing some sort of work, possibly in graphic design. Then a quick bite to eat for lunch, either at home, or out with girl friends. Then after spending time with friends, I would spend time relaxing with a good book or a video game, up until dinner time. Dinner would possibly be a night out on the town with Rob, or a night in with cuddles and a movie. Ending the day with a long bubble bath in an oversized tub, I'd then curl up in bed and pass out.

Ultimately, a perfect day is just a day without worries or stress, doing what I want to do. I mean, that would be an ideal day, but I would want to be my life if I'm being honest. A different type of perfect day would be something fast paced doing things that make me incredibly happy, like riding roller coasters, or a day on the boat on the inter-coastal water way.

What would be a perfect day for you? Let me know!

happy new year

Hey Y'all. I hope everyone had a safe and happy new year! I spent mine like I wanted, at home, in bed and glued to my Nintendo 3DS. Rob did really well and got me somethings that I needed like my new keyboard for my ipad mini that I'm now typing from. I hope to be really productive with it and document my life a little bit more then I did in 2013. He also got me some thing that are going to make the cold winter days go by a little faster. I was spoiled and got Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Legand of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. But more about that later.
 
Its offically 2014, and I've got some goals in mind that I want to complete this year. But I want to stress that I while I do want to grow, I also want to maintain my current level of happiness. With my new work schedule in place, I shouldn't be as stress as I was for the past six months. So on the work front I should be a lot happier. But in all other areas of my life, maintaining where I'm at now is the minimum. I do have things I want to do to make my life a little bit easier or happier, but if I end 2014 feeling like I did today, I'll be good.
 
That said, here is a basic outline that I want to accomplish this year.
 
Life-wise:
1.) This will take forever, but have Rob teach me how to play Magic the Gathering. We need to have a hobby or something we can do or play together. And Rob is all over Magic.
2.) This is not a resolution, nor a ultimatum, but I do need to eat healthier. I'm going to aim to try and eat healthy again. Meaning I need to take over the grocery shopping back over from Rob.
 
Blog-Wise:
1. ) Complete 12 Days in My Life. I used to do these every so often back when I used to keep up with my livejournal and I miss doing them. Its time to bring it back, and I hope to do one every month.
2.) Complete my new series, 52! Basically, I found a list of questions that I plan to ask myself every Thursday this year. First one going up in a few hours.
3.) Socialize. I need to meet more bloggers!
 
So thats, pretty much it for my goals for this year! Happy New Year again!
