The world is really sad and serious right now. It’s gotten even worse over the weekend. I’d like to start this week off on a happyΒ note. And on a random note πŸ™‚

What animal best represents your personality? | My family and I were talking about this a few weeks ago! I assigned both my parents an animal and I told K he was like a runt German Shepherd (hahaha). He’s tough and assertive, but he’s not full-on-Arnold-Schwarzenegger. They told me that I’m like a fluffy kitten. I imagine they meant the kind of kitten that looks cute and has a round face, but will still bite and swipe at you when annoyed. Also, sometimes I’m high energy with a short attention span… ha.


What book(s) shaped your life? | Speaking of kittens… The book Little Bo by Julie Andrews Edwards was one of my favorite books as a kid. There’s a part in the book that a human intentionally tries to hurt kittens and I think that really opened my eyes to animal cruelty. (The kitties were ok in the end!)

Which is better: being the boss or being the employee? | If I could just be the boss of myself I think I’d be happy, but I don’t really want to be in charge of others. (I watch K stress over his duties every day.) That said, I like being an employee with power and free-reign. I just don’t want to have to make all the decisions or be responsible for others.
Tl;dr: A high-ranking, very independent employee.

Name three things in nature that you find most beautiful. | Stars, mountains, and rolling hills with a reddish/purple sunset behind them.

Would you rather fly or read minds? | Definitely fly. I don’t want to hear people’s secrets. I’d actually rather be able to talk to animals πŸ™‚

What was your favorite year? | Of my own life? I guess 2013 was the most eventful: we got married, went on a cruise, moved in together, bought a house, and adopted Enzo. Every year of marriage has been great, though.

What’s your most recent guilty pleasure? | The stupid Bachelorette. I am so totally all in with that dumb show. I have a group text message going with two of my best friends and I have a bracket for each week and I look into blogs & predictions on the web. It’s embarrassing- I never thought I’d be a weekly viewer. (Go Derek & Jordan!)

What is the ugliest vegetable? | That’s a weird question. Oddly enough, I actually have an opinion on the prettiest vegetable (asparagus!) I guess the ugliest is probably cauliflower because it looks like a white brain. Hahaha.


What’s something that you think a lot of people worry about (but you don’t)? | Zombies. Zombies are nary a concern to me. I hate zombie movies and TV shows, and if there was ever an attack I would not survive because I think I’d off myself before fit hits the shan. (Then again, I’m an excellent shot… Do zombies die when you shoot them? Because if that’s the case I’d be a great person to have on your team πŸ˜‰ )

What book do you wish would be turned into a movie? | Um, hands down: The Lunar Chronicles. Please please please someone tell me these are going to be a movie someday!! I need to see Wolf IRL πŸ™‚

Alright, now you answer them! Seriously, what is the ugliest vegetable??

    1. Haha, thanks Emma! I’m a huge animal lover so I thought my family might give me a unique critter when it was my turn… but a fluffy kitten is probably most accurate… πŸ™‚ Haha!


  1. Reading minds would be terrible. I always choose flying. To be able to fly like a bird on your own would be awesome. No more traffic and so many vacations.


    1. Ugh, I do NOT need other people’s thoughts in my head- I have enough!
      Do you supposed if we could fly it’d be like running? Like, if you don’t exercise and harness the ability then you really can’t fly that far? I think I’ve put too much thought into this…


  2. My animal is a raccoon πŸ™‚ I’m definitely a raccoon. A night person, happy to do my own thing, bit lazy, often my diet is garbage, and if you back me into a corner, I’m coming at you with rabies. I won’t attack first but if you piss me off you won’t survive! Plus if we consider the bags under my eyes, I even look like a raccoon! They’re my fave.
    As far as I know, zombies die when you shoot them in the head, you have to sever the brain stem or something. According to Walking Dead. I’d have you on my team!


    1. Hahahaha, I love how absolutely SURE you are about a raccoon! I wish I was more like a fox (maybe? I guess they’re kind of sneaky…) or any other unique animal. But I really am most like that feisty kitten that thinks she’s tough be really she’s not… Haha!
      I don’t hunt or anything, but when it comes to targets I am very accurate. I could take down a few zombies πŸ˜‰


  3. ❀ Thanks for such a fun read this morning. Heavy hearts, for sure, and this was such a sweet and cute thing to read. I'm with you on not wanting to read people's minds. Flying sounds much more fun! πŸ™‚


    1. I thought last week was bad 😦 This weekend was just terrible. I’m definitely thinking of those who suffered loss and pain this weekend, but I just had to change the vibe a bit on the blog.

      I DEFINITELY don’t need other people’s thoughts in my head! I have enough! Fly it is!


    1. UGHHHH! Every time I flip it on I think, ‘You could be writing a novel or tackling the laundry or….’ but then I get sucked in and pour a glass of wine and forget all about that stuff πŸ˜€ Haha!


  4. I was in a co-op where I’d get random vegetables – one time, I got one I had no idea what it was – like I thought it was an alient that crept in my box. I had to post a picture to get people to tell me what it was. The name was just as weird as the item… dont even remember what it was – it started with a ‘rho’ if that tells you anything… needless to say, I didnt touch it.

    OHHHH girl – I’m so Team Jordan. I’m hoping she doesnt pick him so he can be The Bachelor next season πŸ™‚ haha


    1. Whaat?? That’s crazy! I would be so nervous to eat/cook/chop it! Haha! (So neat that you were in a co-op!)

      Jordan is like, disgustingly cute. I would be A-ok with him being the next Bachelor (because let’s be real- now that I’m sucked in I’m probably going to watch all future episodes/seasons…ha)!


  5. I love this. So true. I have totally curled myself up into a mental and emotional ball right now. I can’t even find words to post about the world. I love kittens! Is Enzo a cat? Did the name come from TVD? I am pretty much nodding along here… I agree about employee vs. employer, beautiful things, animal cruelty, etc. Not currently a watcher of the Bachelor/Bachelorette. But people just rave and rave. My hubby and I were like.. i dunno should be we be watching this?! LOL I don’t mind zombie things. I actually really like izombie and p&p&zombies. I didn’t want to like izombie. Bad title… looked dumb. But it’s so freakin’ good. Thank you Rob Thomas (writer of Veronica Mars) for gifting us with witty amazingly complex writing and characters. πŸ™‚ OMG I WOULD DIE AND GO TO HEAVEN IF THE LUNAR CHRONICLES BECAME MOVIES. Wolf & Scarlet 4eva. hehe I have been passing those books on to EVERYONE! XO – Alexandra

    Simply Alexandra: My Favorite Things


    1. I got all sorts of passionate and fiery about the Stanford case last week and I feel like I’m so crushed by the NEW tragedies in the world that I just can’t tackle it. I just want to hug all my loved ones- regardless of who they love- and tell them I could never, ever hate them.

      Enzo is a doggie πŸ™‚ He’s our youngest of two. Haha! We adopted him in Dec. 2013 when he was 9 weeks old and he’s named after the Ferrari because he’s a whippet mix him & quick!

      My husband doesn’t watch The Bachelorette with me- and if he walks in the room while I’m watching it he mocks the whole thing. Haha. It’s my alone time (+ wine + popcorn)! πŸ™‚

      Ugh, I cannot get into zombies- I just dislike the whole trend- but I am ALL ABOUT The Lunar Chronicles. Let’s write a screen play and we’ll send it in to them πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ Haha!


  6. Ughhhh The Bachelorette! I HATE THAT IT’S NOT ON TONIGHT. I hate how much I care that it’s not on tonight! I neeeeeed to see what Chad does next, even though it’s probably nothing.


    1. RIGHT!? The whole creepy murderous vibe is such a turn on. (sarcasm…) But seriously, whose shirt is he gonna rip this week?? I NEED to know.


  7. i don’t get the whole zombie thing either! also, have you seen ‘unreal?’ it’s on lifetime/Hulu and it’s SO good. it’s the ‘behind-the-scenes’ of a bachelor type show – i can’t get enough. i watched one season of ‘the bachelor’ with my mom and sister when it first started and now i stay far away but apparently you are not alone in the addiction πŸ™‚

    1. I’ve seen previews for ‘Unreal’ but I haven’t watched it. I avoid dramas (like Grey’s and the Chicago MD/Fire/etc. series) because they fuel my anxiety. Haha! I’ve been super curious about ‘Unreal’, though!
      I HATE the way the guys talk about the girl (and visversa for Bachelor episodes) but it really does suck you in… or me, anyway. I’m ticked they had Ben Roethlisberger on there, though. They need to research their celebrity cameos a little better and avoid the ones with a sketchy past. Grrr…

  8. Are we the same person?! Hahaha. My answer for the boss/employee thing would be the exact same. The Bachelorette is 150% my guiltiest most pleasurable guilty pleasure of all. And you know Jordan is my fave but I definitely love Derek too! Derek can totally win and Jordan can go on to be the Bachelor (or vice versa). πŸ˜‰ Also I’ve never heard anyone say ‘fit hit the shan’ and I love it.

    Also also…I totally forgot it wasn’t on tonight until I saw the comment above and now I am so sad. Looking forward to that was what was getting me through the day! Waaaah.


    1. I don’t want anyone to micromanage me… but I don’t want to manage anyone, either πŸ™‚ Haha!

      (I was just telling K that I’m so surprised that no one ever brings up or calls me out on the weird phrases I use on my blog… Hahahaha! I stole that one from a Toby Keith song…)

      Ugh. This Monday has been total garbage and while it has nothing to do with no Bachelorette tonight… I won’t deny that it certainly doesn’t help.


  9. I haven’t seen The Bachelor but I used to watch For Love or Money when it was first on, and it was SO bad but I couldn’t stop watching. Have you seen that one?

    I totally agree that cauliflower is totally weird and that zombies are so overrated!


    1. I’ve never heard of that show but you’ve got me intrigued. (I SWEAR I usually watch quality TV… haha!) Maybe I can dig it up on Hulu or something… Lol.


  10. What fun questions!!!! I have to agree, cauliflower is ugly and looks like white brains. And I don’t like cauliflower. One of the only vegetables that I just can’t with. The stars are my favorite thing to look at besides the ocean.


    1. I actually really like cauliflower… I just think it looks ugly. Haha!
      I love stars. My brother is a cloud person. We’ve had real arguments about which are better… haha!
