So I was 4 for 6 in my predictions which would be failing if you asked a teacher but I say go me!

I am in the process of moving so this is a short post — I promise to post more come Monday after I have settled in!  Until then, this should help:

It was nominated for short animated film — totally snubbed and should have won. Such a cute love story!  Awwwwwwwwwwwww…

not as hard as i thought

I saw this on Meg’s blog and thought what a great idea!  I am going to try to see if I can do it for Thomas — yes, I know, we aren’t married but still.  Plus, I am trying to not pack sooooo here I go! 

Here’s a chance to see how well you really know your spouse/boy toy. Cut, paste and fill in the answers, then forward . . . shoot, you know what to do.

1. He’s sitting in front of the TV, what is on the screen? He doesn’t sit in front of the TV…  so this one is tricky.  Sports or a movie, otherwise he just gets up and turns on the radio!

2. You’re out to eat; what kind of dressing does he get on his salad? Caesar!

3. What’s one food he doesn’t like? Onions.  I have to chop them up to an unrecognizable state in order for him to eat anything with them in it!

4. You go out to eat. What drink does he order? Iced Tea, Fireman’s Four, hot sake

5. Where did he go to high school? McNeil

6. What size shoe does he wear? 11

7. If he was to collect anything, what would it be? Anything – boy is VERY kitschy.

8. What is his favorite type of sandwich? Chicken breast from Subway

9. What would he eat every day if he could? Chipolte

10. What is his favorite cereal? He’s more of an eggs and sausage kind of guy…

11. What would he never wear? Sperry’s

12. What is his favorite sports team? UT Football

13. Who did he vote for? McCain/Palin

14. Who is his best friend? Probably Jacques… but then Keith/Kyle/Mason are right there too…

15. What is something you do that he wishes you wouldn’t do?  Ditto, Meg — SHOP!

16. What is his heritage? Czech

17. You bake him a cake for his birthday; what kind of cake? Chocolate — though he’s not really a cake kind of guy either.

18. Did he play sports in high school? Football

19. What could he spend hours doing? Working outside on the yard, on his Jeep, drinking… well, it’s true!

20. What is one unique talent he has? Skip rocks :)

Not as hard as I thought!  I will have to see what he says…

happy birthday, me!

Too funny today on Ellen —

new look

Well, I changed my headline photo bar — I’m thinking that this one will stay so I thought that I would provide a caption (from L to R):

1: Me, Becky, Meg, & Pam – We surprised Becky, well, pre-planned surprised, for her 26th birthday. 

2: Adi & Me – It was definitely NYC and I think that it was the first time we went up there to see her.

3: My Mom & Me – Obligatory subway platform picture in NYC taken Thanksgiving 2008.

4: Thomas & Me – O’Hare Int’l Airport, waiting and waiting for the plane to arrive.

5: My sister, Stephanie & Me – Also taken in NYC (I go way too often!) on the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty.

6: Sadie! – New Year’s Eve, wearing some leis.  

7: My Dad and Me: Empire State Building, Thanksgiving 2008. I obviously need to bust out the camera at other family events.

8: Thomas and Me: Jimmy Buffett concert, we try to make it every year. If you haven’t gone to see him, I don’t care if you really aren’t even a fan, it’s an experience unlike any other!

That reminds me… Jimmy tickets go on sale tomorrow!!

grammy fashion

I religiously watch the Grammy’s. I don’t know – it’s just a thing. Anyways, I thought that I would pick out some of the best and worst dressed from the red carpet according to me. To start – my absolute fave!

taylor0Taylor Swift in Kaufman Franco – love it. I cannot WAIT to see her at the rodeo on March 20th. I am such a big fan and not ashamed to admit it.

audrina0Audrina Patridge in Tadashi – not really loving the hair but she is rocking the red lip. I think that neckline is crazy flattering too! And I love the color. Secretly, I just want the Hills to come back on.

leann0Leann Rimes in Philosophy – though I’m not liking the beachy hair with this dress, I really like the color, cut, length, belt detail, and shoes. Whatever happened to her anyways?

Okay, and just one hate, but seriously, what was she thinking???

miaM.I.A. in what, tennis shoes? I mean, I think Kala is a great album but what? Uggh. She should have given me her ticket to the award show…
