About Me Tag

Hello beauties!

Today I am doing an “about me” tag. I like to include posts and tags that give an outlook into me as a person from time to time. I know in tag posts you’re supposed to tag others, so I tag anyone that wants to participate! I love reading these posts from others, so please join in if you please!

1. What do you think you can do but can’t?
Well, this is a tough one for me because I really am the type of person that believes I can do almost anything eventually. I will say grow. I am very short, and I wish I was about 2 inches taller so that I could at least reach my cabinets. Alas, growing taller is not one of my super powers.

2. What’s a difficult word for you to pronounce?
I can’t really think of anything, honestly. I have trouble initially pronouncing some words that I may have never seen before, but other than that I tend to over enunciate most words thanks to years of vocal lessons.

3.What are your favorite TV shows from your childhood?
Sailor Moon, Hey Arnold, and Dexter’s Laboratory. I probably have more, but those are just what’s sticking out to me right now. Yes, I watched a lot of cartoons.

4. What are your virtues and vices?
I think that I am a great listener and a very compassionate and empathetic person. I love listening to others experiences and I really enjoy meeting people from walks of every kind of life. It’s something that I look for in others as well. Cursing is probably my biggest vice. I have a potty mouth, and I’m okay with that. It’s not so bad that I can’t control it when around others I know aren’t comfortable with it and children, but at home I swear a lot. I also have a shopping problem…whoops.

5. What’s more important: love, fame, power, or money?
Of course, love is going to win this one for me. I will always cherish love over any material thing in existence. However, money is a bit of a big deal. I like being comfortable and able to provide for my family.

6. If you could live in any era/time period, when would it be and why?
I would want to be an aristocrat right before the French Revolution. I know that sounds strange, but I have seen Versailles in person and my gosh I would love to see how it looked in its prime with everyone bustling about…minus the chopping off of heads and such. Their style was so over the top and glamorous as well…it just interests me. With that being said, I do feel the way the poor were treated in that era was awful. My want to be to an out-looker aristocrat is just for curiosity’s sake.

7. If you had to redo your entire wardrobe with 2 stores, what would they be and why?
Does Goodwill count as a store? That’s where I get most of my stuff now as it is, because I find so many vintage pieces. I don’t know if I can live without thrift shopping. The other store would have to be Forever 21. I have a lot of pieces from there that are staples including lots of neutral shirts and shoes. I tend to go there for cheaper tees and accessories.

8. Can you recall what you were doing a year ago on this day?
I don’t remember exactly, but I do know I was pregnant with Piper at the time. So probably up constantly peeing.

9. Do you have reoccurring dreams? If so, explain?
I have a nightmare from time to time that I am in water and can’t breathe. Like I can actually feel myself not breathing…it’s so real. And then I always see something or someone approaching me in the water and I wake up gasping for air.

10. What’s your horoscope?
Scorpio

11. What does your dream bedroom look like?
Black and white with gold accents. The walls would be white and crisp as well as the bed spread. A nice black and white rug on the floor and little gold accents everywhere and a beautiful giant wolf painting hanging from the wall.

12. What position do you sleep in?
I’m a side sleeper and sometimes I throw my leg on things and straddle them…

13. What are your all time favorite films?
Woah, I have a lot of favorites. A few include Breakfast at Tiffany’s, The Lord of the Rings, Black Swan, Donnie Darko, any of the Harry Potter films, My Week with Marilyn, and so many more. I like to watch a good variety of movies.

14. What makeup are you currently wearing?
Well, I took off all my makeup so I guess I can include my makeup look from earlier today.

I used the “poetica” palette from Kat Von D mixed with a few matte Nyx singles. Red Cherry #43 lashes. Nyx “cottage cheese” pencil as an inner corner highlight. Used my new bourjois healthy mix serum foundation and Nars creamy radiant concealer and wet n wild blush in “brush with destiny.” Mary-Lou Manizer highlight and LaSplash “Charmed” on my lips.

15. Do you have neat handwriting? Show us!
It’s not neat by any means lol.

Thank you for reading if you made it to this point! I hope you all enjoyed.

The Love Tag

I don’t do these tags often (mostly because I’m rarely tagged…ha) but I saw this one and thought it was cute. Yes, I participate in Valentine’s Day festivities with my man and now our kids as well. It’s fun and cute and corny, and even my dark and slightly goth soul loves it.

Anyway, here’s my answers to the questions.

1. What is love?
BABY DON’T HURT ME, DON’T HURT ME…NO MORE!
Seriously, love is when you find yourself laughing at the littlest things. Love is in the laughs of children. Love is your world literally stopping the moment you look into your newborn’s eyes. Love is so many things. It’s subjective and different for everyone.

2. Have you ever been in love?
I suppose I’ve been with Jeremy long enough to claim that I love him :p

3. Do you believe in soul mates?
Eh…this is a weird one for me. Do I believe that Jeremy is my soul mate on an intimate level that no one else will probably compare? Yes, of course. However, I do have friends and such that know me in different ways that not even Jeremy does because there are things we don’t have in common. I guess what I’m saying is, the soul can mate with several if wanted. I’m obviously just not intimate with everyone.

4. Are you single or taken?
If I say that I am taken will Liam Neeson come save me?

5. Best gift you have ever received?
Crap, these are the types of questions where I just sit back and open a can of corn and gag everyone. I would have to say my daughters. The best “surprises” I’ve ever received in life. 🙂

6. Favorite love song(s)?
I listen to a lot of metal and there aren’t many mushy love songs in that genre. If there are, I probably don’t like them.

7. What is your favorite flower?
Red roses and sunflowers!

8. Favorite romantic movie?
I don’t watch many romantic movies, but we did watch Silver Linings and About Time last night and they both made me do the ugly cry. That rarely happens.

9. Dream love destination?
Love destination? As in, somewhere I want to go on a honeymoon or something? I would like to go back to Paris, as corny and cliche as that sounds. It truly is the city of love…and wine.

10. Are you still friends with your exes?
You are very funny.

11. Describe your ex using only movie titles
I’m not bitter, so I will politely skip this one and pass the salt to someone else.

12. Fondest memories with your partner or ex?
one year 1

one year 3

Anytime I get to watch Jeremy be a great father (which is everyday) is a fond memory. I can’t pick just one day.

13. Describe your ideal date?
Dinner and cuddling and a full 8 hours of blissful sleep if and when Piper allows it.

14. Have you been on a blind date?
Shit no. I am very wary of strangers.

15. Last person you said I Love You to?
Jeremy, this morning.

16. How much old compared to you was the oldest/youngest person you dated?
My last serious boyfriend was quite a bit older than me.

17. Have you ever been in a long distance relationship?
Can’t say that I have.

18. Do you believe in astrological capabilities (horoscopes)?
No.

19. Who should pay on the first date (the guy or girl)?
I guess it depends on if this has been arranged beforehand. If I’m going on a first date I make sure to at least have enough money for myself, and if the person I’m with offers to pay, well that’s okay. Jeremy and I used to take turns paying for dates though. When I worked outside of home, I worked really hard for my money and didn’t care to show that I was self sufficient.

20. How are did you spending your Valentines Day?
Valentines was yesterday, and we spent it hanging out with our daughters. I made Harmony her favorite dish, fried rice with lots of veggies and Jeremy made me and him lo mein noodles with steak and shrimp. He also made a german chocolate cake from scratch, and it was delicious. We also found some time to be alone after the girls went to sleep…if you catch my drift.

I tag anyone that wants to participate 🙂
