Sunday Funday Quiz!

I completely agree with She Wears a Red Sox Cap about these surveys, I love doing them but not exactly sure why. I don't think I like talking about myself, but maybe I really do? Hmmm... anyhoo, hope everyone is having a lovely Sunday and an even lovelier Father's Day! :)

What is your current obsession? Books. I have been checking out/buying more books than I can keep up with. Seriously, I should just become a hermit and stay home reading all day, everyday.

What is your weirdest obsession? Ok, this is strange (well, at least I think it's strange), I like to listen to the audio books of my favorite novels in the car. Not just on long car rides either. Sometimes I will start them and listen to them during my normal daily commutes. Weird, right? (I may or may not take the long way home if we're at a good point of the book)

Starbucks or Caribou? Actually, neither. I'm happiest with my own coffee from home in my pretty pink travel mug! If I get coffee somewhere else I will usually go to the gas station, Kum and Go (yes, we have gas stations called Kum and Go) and get their hazelnut coffee, it's SO good!

What’s for dinner? Today we went out to Texas Roadhouse for Father's Day (yum!) and last night I had a taco salad. Has anyone tried the ready made salads in a bag from Dole? They have Caesar, Asian and Southwestern options and I LOVE them. They are so yummy!

What would you eat for your last meal? Oooh, goodness. My last meal. This requires some thought. I would start with a nice garden salad that has tomatoes, carrots, black olives shredded cheese and croutons with ranch dressing. Then I would eat half my weight in crab legs dipped in melted butter (mmmm....) with maybe a nice loaded baked potato on the side. For dessert, cheesecake topped with strawberries... heaven! :)

What was the last thing you bought? A Father's Day card! Happy Dad Day! :)

What are you listening to right now? Keeping up with the Kardashian's is on... sort of watching.

What is your favorite ice cream flavor? I love Bunny Tracks or any Cake Batter ice cream

What do you think of the person(s) who tagged you? Nobody tagged me, but I got the survey from She Wears a Red Sox Cap who I found via Amber!

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

Which language do you want to learn? I would love to know Spanish. I regret not pursuing it further in school when I had the chance.

What is your favorite quote (for now)? "Sometimes you have to forget what you want and remember what you deserve."

What is your favorite color? Pink!

What is your favorite piece of clothing in your own wardrobe? A pair of black wedges that have silver/blue detail on the front. I wish I could find a picture of me wearing them, but here they are. They actually need to get repaired because the middle part that goes between your toes broke off! I hope someone can fix it for me!

What is your dream job? A writer. I would love to be creative enough to come up with great tales about people like Harry Potter, Bella and Edward or Becky Bloomwood. When I was younger I had such a wild imagination and would write "books" all the time, now that I'm older my imagination has calmed down quite a bit and it kind of makes me sad!

What is your worst habit? Eating at night. It's awful! I can't resist the urge to snack after the sun goes down and it's usually sweets I want!

If you had $100 now, what would you spend it on? Some new summer clothes! I'm in desperate need of cute clothes good enough for work (and play!)

Do you admire any one’s style? Yep, I love Londyn's style, it's timeless and always chic. If you haven't checked out her daily wardrobe blog, you should!

Describe your personal style. Casual and sweet. I love anything trimmed in lace. Anything pink, but not a lot of it at once. I like things that are classic and versatile. Things that I would wear for years and years. My favorite places to shop are Von Maur, Express, Forever 21 and American Eagle.

What are you going to do after this? Probably a little reading then off to bed!

What are your favorite movies? Almost Famous, Across the Universe, Miracle, The Parent Trap (random, eh?) and Elizabethtown. Clearly I love movies with good music! :)

What is your favorite fruit? I looooove fruit and I cannot pick just one! I like strawberries, pineapple, oranges and mango the best. The only fruits I don't like are melons. Yes, I do not like watermelon. Strange, right?

What inspires you? I feel like I'm inspired daily. Sometimes it's the oddest things too, like last week I was the musical Mama Mia! with my mom and grandma and was totally inspired by the finale. It was so extravagant and well done, it had me almost in tears! I can't pinpoint what it was exactly that inspired me or what it inspired me to do, I was just inspired!

What is your favorite book? Again, I can't pick just one! I love books way too much. My favorites are the Harry Potter books, My Sister's Keeper, the Shopaholic series, Summer Sisters, American Wife and Prep by Curtis Sittenfeld and The Shack by WM Paul Young.

Do you collect something? Not really, unless you count books, bags and shoes!

What is your favorite smell? Lemon! It smells so clean and fresh!

What are you most proud of? Being young and successful. I have finished school, have my degree and am in a career that I love and get paid well to do.

How many times do you press the snooze button before you get up? Too many times to admit! Ha!

Cats or dogs? I love them both! I have Libby, my cat, but would love to have a dog too! Maybe this year I will get one! :)

Complete the following: Love is… when you feel like family together. When you can't imagine your life without that other person.

What do you like best about yourself (can be a physical characteristic and/or a personality trait)? I am a very loyal person, especially in my career. There are very few jobs I have had that I didn't have for a long time. Even when I was younger!

What do you dislike about yourself? I'm extremely sensitive and am constantly worrying about what others think of me. I know I need to stop it, but by now I don't think I'm going to change!

I'm tagging anyone that wants to do this quiz! :)

I really enjoyed Elizabethtown but it seemed that a lot of people didn't watch it. Glad that someone else liked it.

I posted the quiz on my blog.

BTW, I like your definition of love.

I agree with not being able to pick a favorite book. There's just so many great series' out there.

Ha ha! I remember the Kum & Gos - we don't have them up here. They really should change their name!

Now back to finishing your post. I just had to comment on the Kum & Go. :)
