Behind the Lola, 22 questions

last of the harvest, early fall.

I was recently tagged by one of my favorite gals from the 3 W's, KAREN, and since I rarely get around to actually doing these little surveys I thought it would be fun to stop and try it out on this slow and quiet Thursday of mine. So. . . even though you may already know a little bit about me from previous posts, here are some random other things in the form of 22 questions.

1. Your hair? I dye it light brown in the spring and dark brown in the fall. I suppose I need a change, and find myself often wanting to be a redhead.

2. Your favorite food? Almost ANYTHING with Vinegar. Love the stuff, and it's good for you too.

3. Your favorite drink? Iced tea or Iced mint mochas. I also love a delicious Mojito every now and again, with fresh mint. . . mmmmm. *refreshing*

4. Your dream/goal? #1 To be a good mama to this precious and silly little boy. And to keep selling pretty vintage clothes via my Etsy shop forever because I love it so much and it's what makes me happy. :) ♥

5. Your hobby? Writing in pretty journals, thrifting, traveling, and DANCING!

6. Your fear? Losing anyone I love to tragedy.

7. Where were you last night? Watching Jeopardy with my new sweet man.

8. Something you say all the time? "Good Gravy!"

9. Something that you're not? ORGANIZED. *sigh* But I'm constantly working on it, promise!

10. Wishlist item? Almost ANY dress designed by Alexander McQueen, but probably one like this. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. That man is a creative genius!

11. Last thing you did? Put balsamic-roasted veggies in the oven for lunch.

12. What are you wearing? My favorite high-waisted blue velvet pants with a plain white t-shirt.

13. Your pets? Linus, a super cozy black cat.

"Hi, I'm Linus, and I'm the most cuddly cat in the whole wide world!"

14. Friends? I'm grateful for them! Thank goodness for phones and facebook, though, because some of my favorite friends have moved out of the mitten. That being said, I'm so happy to currently be making new friends online! Here are some of my real life besties.

15. Missing someone? My beautiful mama, wish she lived closer so much . . .

16. Something you're not wearing? bracelets.

17. Your favorite store? I really like Aveda and Sephora. And vintage shops, of course!

18. Your favorite color? Red

19. The last time you cried? When I told mom about my new special man. :)

20. When's the last time you laughed? This morning at this hilarious nightgown I found on Etsy.

21. One place that I go to over and over? Barnes & Noble. Unbelievable inspiration and coffee too? Happy me. :)

22. Where do you eat? At the dinner table or on nights when my son isn't with me, in front of the TV sometimes. shhhhh! ;)
