Home again, home again...

Morning and happy Monday friends. As you're reading this I am flying home from Vegas with Le Husband.  Yes, this year we decided to prolong our trip a few more hours and fly home on Monday [at 6am, woof]. I'm grateful I work with a very understanding boss who will let me work from home once we land so I don't have to take a day off. And we all know working in sweats on the couch is incredible, right? Don't worry, I will give y'all the recap later this week [pinky promise] but I didn't have it in me to devote vacation time to blogging.

So, today you get to learn a lil more about me. I know I've posted a few of these recently and if they bore you I'm sorry. I honestly LOVE reading these posts on other blogs and enjoy writing them as well. I think it's fun to learn more about people we stalk support on the Internet ;)! Enjoy!



Favorite Food? S'mores or mushrooms in a red wine reduction.

Flip Flops or High Heels? High heels!

Favorite Places to Shop? Loft, Target, Nordstrom, Kendra Scott [thanks BOFF]

Top Five TV Shows? NCIS [all of them], The Good Wife, Elementary, Castle, DCC Making the Team.

Favorite Book? Gone with the Wind

Favorite Form of Exercise? Soccer games! Or BODYPUMP!

Do you try something new at restaurants or stick to favorites? Depends on the restaurant. If it's an old staple, I'll probably stick with my favorite, but if I'm at a new, fancy restaurant I'll try something different than normal. Unless I go to a steak house, then I always want a rib-eye or filet and I almost always get a risotto at an Italian restaurant.

One make up item you can't live without? Mascara and lipstick/lip gloss.

What's on your nightstand? My alarm clock, phone, picture of me and Le Husband, lamp, BC, eye drops, Vaseline [chapstick], prayer journal, pen and a small nativity.

One thing marriage has taught you? Oh man, so many things.The biggest one is LOVE, just love!

If you could live anywhere in the world other than your current city where would you live? Oh goodness, so many different places. I'd love to live in Hawaii, New Orleans, Charleston, Nashville, Savannah, Salt Lake or somewhere in Big Sky country.

Tell us something about you we might not know. Well, I posted many a new thing *here*, so let me think. Oh, I drink my coffee through a straw so not to stain my teeth. Yes, even hot coffee.

Websites you read//browse [besides blogs]: MSN, BravoTV, ESPN and various articles I find on Facebook.

Morning person/Night owl? Umm, neither? Well, I guess I'm better in the mornings then having to stay up late at night so I guess morning person. If it's bright all the time [like summers in a Alaska] I can stay up MUCH later than normal.

Favorite/least favorite chore? Hmm, all of them? I mean, I wish I had a maid, haha. I don't really enjoy dusting because you have to move everything out of the way. Or cleaning the toilet, that is never fun.

That's awesome that your boss is letting you work from home so you can recover from Vegas! I love Vegas and I can't wait to hear all about your trip! Kendra Scott is definitely one of my favorite stores too, as my husband knows from my way too many pieces of jewelry I own from her store.

Pamela {Sequins and Sea Breezes} said...

Yay for your boss letting you work from home! It's always better getting to work in pajamas from your couch! Can't wait to hear all about your Vegas trip! Love that you drink your coffee through a straw! I totally do that too! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

Can't wait to hear the recap and hope you are not just so tired with that time change. xoxo love you

Brianne said...

Working from home seems like one of the best things ever. I can't wait to hear about Vegas! NCIS: LA is one of my favorite shows. I need to catch up on it. Perhaps I'll do that today since Columbus Day = day off ha. I probably would've forgotten my BC today had you not said that because mine is normally on my night stand but it's still in my suitcase from yesterday.

Joey @ Hodgespodges said...

Charleston is DEFINITELY on my list, too! And I'm glad your boss is allowing you to work from home!

Liz Jo said...

I am neither a morning or a night person haha. I always get the same thing at a restaurant, just hate looking and finding new items to eat. And one of the cities you mentioned that you'd love to live, I live in :)

Courtney B said...

Yay, hope you're home safe and sound now! I can't wait to read about Vegas!
This is seriously one of my favorite pictures of you!! SO CUTE!
You would love living in Salt Lake! We miss it every day!!

Rebecca Jo said...

Gone with the Wind... what a classic!

Jen said...

I hope you enjoyed my hometown on your trip!!! :) Can't wait to hear about it.

Kayla MKOY said...

I have a co worker who drinks her coffee through a straw - kinda genius! ;) I don't drink much but find myself thinking my teeth have gotten less white lately. Bummer! I love these kinds of posts! Super jealous you were able to take a day and work from your couch in sweats - that sounds awesome!!!

Foxy's Domestic Side said...

When you wrote that you drank coffee from a straw it made me think of Ryan Seacrest he does the same thing, haha. And often comments on his radio show that he's burned his tongue, totally random comment of the day. And YES to DCC, It's addicting. What channel is it on? I missed it this year becaue my DVR got rid of all of my season passes and I couldn't remember what channel it was on and always forgot to look it up.

Nikki @ makeupHER said...

How nice of your boss, it sucks having to come back to work after a vaca like that! I love the little getting to know you bit, favorite thing for me to read on blogs...I'm actually gonna borrow the idea for a post of mine :)! You picked some awesome places to live girl!!

Leslie said...

Yay for extending your weekend by a few hours! Have a lovely day!

Erin LFF said...

Thank goodness for wonderful bosees :) Can't wait to hear about your trip!! I hate dusting too- it feels so time consuming to move everything, dust and then put it back in it's place... I'm lazy ha!

mariafelicia magno said...

i'm curious to read about your trip

Julia said...

Ugh dusting is the worst! But the one I hate the most is cleaning the tub/shower! I should definitely adopt the coffee through a straw thing, I drink SO much coffee and I'm worried about my poor teeth!

Amanda - Voyage of the MeeMee said...

So, I'm an idiot. I legit had to read this 3 times: "S'mores or mushrooms in a red wine reduction." I thought... "smores in red wine? that sounds gross!" GAHHH... IS THIS DAY OVER YET??? LOL
I would rather clean the toilet than do dishes. Dishes are my arch nemesis.

Candace Shiflet said...

Oh man soooo jealous you were in Vegas this weekend!! I bet it was AMAZING! And I agree, working from home is BOMB because like you said, relaxing in sweats on the couch doesn't feel to worky haha Can't wait for your recap!!

xo, Candace | Lovely Little Rants

Kate at Green Fashionista said...

No toilet cleaning! And mushrooms in a red wine reduction is an excellent food choice!

Trista @ The Classy Chaos said...

Yay For vacay!! I love Gone With the Wind! As a matter of fact, it just may be about time to read it again. And I wish I had a maid too. Laundry and dishes. I'll do the rest! :))

Kristen @ See You In A Porridge said...

hahaha @ drinking coffee through a straw. love it!
i'm the exact same when it comes to morning/night. i would rather get up early than stay up late, but if i have a choice, i'd rather sleep in and go to bed early haha.

Laura Darling said...

Your boss sounds so nice and understanding! That's awesome! And now I want some mushrooms in a red wine reduction! :)

Emily said...

I hope you had an amazing time in Vegas! i can't wait to hear about it. I just started drinking coffee out of a straw for the same reason. I wish I knew to do this years ago though...very late to the game.

Laura Marie Keenan said...

Gone With the Wind may just be my favorite book too!!! I am always shocked when I find someone who hasn't read it!
