some favorite things

Favorite workout song on iPod - Oh man, I have a workout playlist, and it definitely has some high energy tunes on it.  I have a tough time ever picking favorites when it comes to music, but I will say that when the song "Shipping Up to Boston," by the Dropkick Murphy's comes on, I definitely pick up the pace.

Usual at coffee shop - So in my little hick town, there isn't exactly a coffee shop like a Starbucks or anything.  We do have a Dunkin' Donuts though.  WooHOO.  But in all honesty, I like the coffee at a local convenience store, Griffin's, better than any Starbucks or Dunkin' Donuts anyway.  They have the brand of coffee that I like, and they also have the only cream that I will use, Hazelnut International Delight.  I only go there when I run out of coffee though, because I make my own at home. 

App addicted to - Besides the regulars, like Safari or Facebook or something, I am a Scramble addict.  It's probably the app I use the most.  And I have a dumb amount of apps for some reason.  But yeah, Scramble.  I can't help it, I love that game.  Wanna get beat?

Item in makeup bag - Oh man.  I don't wear much makeup, but what I do wear I really like.  I use Laura Mercier makeup, it's awesome.  I could probably not give up my under eye cream.  Or my translucent face powder.  It's so soft and silky...  I also use this stuff by Yves St Laurent called Forever Youth Liberator that I'd have a rough time giving up.  It is so great because I definitely think it makes my wrinkles less wrinkly.  It's so expensive though, seriously ridiculous.

Calm spot in house - Ah, my big deep cozy bathtub is a pretty awesome calm spot.  I love to take a bath and just relax in there.  I could read an entire book in that tub.  Happily.

Movie watched the most - I have watched a bunch of 80's movies over and over to the point where I can pretty much recite them word for word - like The Breakfast Club, Pretty In Pink, Sixteen Candles, Ferris Bueller - so many more.  There is no denying that the 80's produced some seriously unforgettable movies.

Favorite website - Ah, another one that's hard to narrow down.  I'll say that I log on to these sites every single day, in this order:, Facebook, this blog, gmail, pinterest and etsy.  Then from there, it's anyone's guess.  I try to read a bunch of blogs that I like.  Also, I'm kind of into picmonkey lately - it's a very cool photo editing site, and I love messing around with pictures.

Guilty pleasure TV show - Well.  I'll admit that I watch The Bachelor and Bachelorette most seasons.  And Real World, and ugh, 16 and Pregnant.  I usually keep that under my hat though, because it's such mindless, train-wreck, waste-of-an-hour TV.  In certain circles, I may not reveal that information.  It's classified.  And rather embarrassing.  Don't tell anyone.


  1. I have WAY too many apps on my poor little iPad. Starting to think about upgrading to one with more memory and pass this one on to hubby! Wonder if that would fly for Father's Day!

  2. Scramble? Challenge accepted!

  3. Don't worry, your secret is safe with me! I never wear any make-up because, when the lovelies were coming along there was no time, I'm allergic to most of it, and I'm not a foo-foo type gal. And picmonkey? I'm there almost every day! I love it!
