A Game of Tag

I was so excited to see Brooke had tagged me! This is my first time being tagged here in blog world. I think this is a really fun one, because we learn so much about each other :) I learned that Brooke is amazingly awesome and loves mint chocolate chip from baskins!

What is your current obsession?
Three words for you:
Epic. Pet. Wars.

What is your current favorite memory?
Oh wow... So many amazing ones to pick from! How about this one from tonight...

Getting all sanzzied up and going out for a romantic dinner with Ryan. Then going to the park at twilight. Walking, talking and swinging on the swingset. What a great night!

Starbucks or Peet's?

As long as I can get a White Chocolate Raspberry latte, I'm good to go!

What's for dinner?
Pasta House! Love this place so much... I have so many amazing memories involving this place. They even catered our wedding :)

What would you eat for your last meal?
Vegetable dinner from O'Hana. It's pure heaven! I promise I'll take pics next time I go :)

What's the last thing you bought?
Lunch for me, my mom and sister! Girls afternoon out, ya know.

What are you listening to right now?
Ryan playing Plants vs. Zombies haha

What is your favorite ice-cream flavour?
Chunky Monkey! I love to sit down and eat the whole container!! Ahhh, the advantages of having the metabolism of a caffeinated squirrel...

What do you think of the person who tagged you?
I think Brooke is adorable, quirky and all around fabulous! I feel like we have loads in common and can always count on a smile from reading her blog :) I just wish she lived by me so we could be shopping buddies!!

What was your favorite toy growing up?
I adored Littlest Pet Shop and the original Polly Pockets! I had sooo many of those things... 80's/90's had the best toys ever!

If you could go anywhere in the world
for the next hour, where would you go?

Parrot Cay in Turks & Caicos. A hour there will rejuvenate you for years! (But it apparently can't help you hold a camera straight. This was before I'd taken up photography...)

Which language do you want to learn?
Spanish! It was my dad's first language, but he never taught me. Now I wish I spoke it fluently...

What's your favorite quote (for now)?
Reason. Season. Lifetime.

Big thank you for Sarah to telling me this quote. It has made such a difference in my life! It tells you that some people are brought into your life for a reason, maybe to teach you something about yourself or to show you something about life. Some people are brought into your life for a season and even if them leaving your life hurts you, you know that it was meant to be. Lifetime is for amazing people like Sarah and Ryan, who I know without a doubt will be in my life for me whenever needed, no matter what happens.

What is your favorite colour?
ooo... Toughie! Maybe yellow? I'm pretty drawn to that lately.

What is your favorite piece
of clothing in your own wardrobe?

My new destroyed jeans! Luv 'em!

What is your dream job?
Professional photographer! I love taking pictures and capturing moments that you might otherwise miss. Nothing makes me happier than taking someones photo and having it show, not only their outer beauty, but their inner beauty and personality!

Or a stylist... I love clothes and love putting outfits together for people! I believe having clothes, hair, and accessories that expresses who you are is very important. I love doing this for all my friends and family, hopefully they don't mind too much... haha

What is your worst habit?
Probably over thinking things and worrying myself sick about things that don't really matter... Or not keeping up with housework... But I'm making a lot of progress in that department! I think I've hit my groove or something...

If you had £100 now, what would you spend it on?
Canon EF 50mm f/1.8!! Gotta love the low aperture, gotta love the low price. And of course, every photographer needs a "niffy fifty" in their bag :)

Do you admire any one's style?
I admire so many girls style everyday just walking down the street! lol But as far as celebs go - I wouldn't mind swapping clothes with Rachel Bilson, Keira Knightley or Vanessa Hudgens!

Describe your personal style?
Since the end of last year to this Spring, I've changed a lot as a person and made a lot of good and needed changes to my life. I'm kinda in the middle of a style change to reflect that. I want to my outside to reflect what I feel and who I am on the inside. So far I'm really liking all the changes :)

Right now I've got kind of an indie chic socal with a bit of 60's vintage thing going on. Maybe... I dunno how to define it! You tell me lol

What are you going to do after this?
Go watch tv and snuggle with Ryan! And I'm going to see UP!!!! (tomorrow... but still, I'm stoked!)

What are your favourite movies?
Here are my current top 5 movies.

1) Star Trek! Yes, I am a trekkie. At the end of the movie I sat there and almost cried because it was so amazing. Seeing my favorite characters portrayed so perfectly and those famous classic lines delivered anew *bliss*

2) The Dark Knight - It's awesome. 'Nuff said!

3) Casino Royale - The actors, the sets, the wardrobe. Amazing!

4) Pillow Talk - A 1959 gem that even Ryan (who doesn't like old movies) loves!

5) The Ice Age Series - I cannot wait for the new one! Scratte in the new one looks and acts, just like Twiggy.

What is your favourite fruit?

So many choices... I'll say a crisp white peach! Nothing beats that in the summer. Or watermellon... That's pretty epic as well.

What inspires you?
People who beat the odds
Big cities
People who are true to themselves regardless what other people think
Beautiful parks
The ocean
Genuine people who truly care
Stary nights
A truly good movie

Your favorite book?
I love books! I have so many favorites... The one I'm reading right now is Eclipse from the Twilight Saga. That's my favorite of the four!

Do you collect something?
I have so many little collections... As a young girl I collected rocks! And marbles... and teddy bears... and vintage buttons... and anything I could get my little hands on! haha

Now I just have a mini-sized perfume collection.

What is your favorite smell?
My new Cherry Blossom perfume!! I usually buy pricey high-end perfumes - but this one is amazing!! It mixes perfectly with my body chemistry.

What are you most proud of?
I'm really proud that I've learned to stand up for myself and be true to myself. I don't let people push me around anymore!

What do you like most about yourself?
Probably my ability to be friends with anyone!

What is your go-to nail polish color?
Maybelline Express Finish in Racey Red. Goes with everything, and dries crazy fast! And it makes short nails look amazingly chic, which is good for this bass player.

1) Respond and rework. Answer the questions on your blog. Replace one question that you dislike with a question of your invention and add one more question of your own.
2) Tag eight folks

Brooke and I hang with the same blogging crowd, so I didn't tag any of the awesome gals she did. Not that it's a rule that you can't! I just did it this way to spread the love a bit more :) But I wanted to say why, so they didn't think they were unloved haha

I'm tagging these amazing chicks:

Sarah @ If my life were a blog post...
Maegan @ Maegan
Violet @ The Quiet Life of Violet
Gigi @ love, milla jane
Anne @ Six Gun Annie
Dana @ My Simple RaNdOmNeSs!
Haley @ elizabeth haley
Lorianne @ One Minute at a Time

I wanna tag everyone! I hate picking... So if you read all the way through this - considered yourself officially tagged :) If you give it a try post a link in the comments. You know we all wanna see!
