7 questions

Do you all know Gentri Lee? You must. She is an absolute doll, and her blog and her instagram just bring a little ray of sunshine to my day whenever she posts.

She hosts a weekly link up called “7 questions” that I just love to read, but for some reason, this is the first week I am participating….but, bring it on, I say!

Her first rule for the link up is that you have to post a silly picture of yourself…so, without further adieu…

And then you answer 7 questions from her...
These are her questions for this week....

1. What is your favorite day of the week and why?

well, see, my favorite day of the week is actually Friday night…I know “Friday night” is not technically a day, I mean, it is, but it’s not if you know what I’m saying? But hear me out…Friday has so much potential. Firday DAY is of moderate suck because of work, but there is still a glimmer of happy to it, since you know the end is near, right? I mean, it sure beats the hell out of Monday DAY. but Friday night….Friday night has a magic all its own. It is the furthest weekend time away from Sunday night, which I dread with a passion only second to that of the dread of Monday morning. Friday means letting out a deep breath, pouring a BIG glass of wine, kicking back on the couch with feet up. it means a little bit later bedtime and a little more sleeping in the next day. Friday night just plain rules.

2. If you decided to change your name, what would you change it to?

you guys are going to think I’ve done lost my mind but you know what? I am really, really feelin’ J. Simps’s baby girl’s name….Maxwell Drew! I know it is a boy’s name, but I love boy’s names for girls. If Benny was a girl, he was going to be Hailey James…I just love the quirky, cool factor, and the irony…so today, I pick Maxwell Drew.

3. What is one product you use (it can be for anything) that you feel is a miracle worker?

I don’t know about miracles, but I am sold on the Orofluido I got in my birchbox a few months ago. Moroccan oil is the and this one is better than any I have tried. I love the way it smells, I love the way it feels and it tames my hair better than anything. I use it after I blow dry. Before I blow dry, I use the “It’s a 10” miracle leave in, which is also, somewhat miraculous!

4. High heels, flats, sneakers, or boots?

flats. Or sneakers. Or flat boots. Just as long as I am low to the ground. I bust my ass in anything over 1’’.  Sad.

5. You see your favorite celebrity (it can be any kid of celebrity- movie star, singer, writer, political leader, blogger) walking down the street, what do you do?

oh….heeeeere we go….well, my answer to this question depends on a) which celebrity happened to be walking down the street and b) how many drinks I had consumed before running into said celebrity. Let’s go through the options, shall we? And follow that up with a true story example…..

Lately, I’ve got a wicked crush on Zac Efron. I already know, ok? I should be embarrassed. But I’m not. He’s a stone cold fox…there, I said it. Can we all move on?

Ok, so if I saw Mr. Efron walking down the street, I would get those crazy heart palpitations that come with a panic attack and make your chest sting, and then, like a total creep, I would dart into an alley and just watch him….and then, if he went into any stores or anything, I would probably go into those stores too, once I caught my breath, and pretend like I didn’t even see him, all the while peering at him creepily from behind the racks. I would never talk to him. I suck.

If said celebrity were a blogger…like…oh…say….Ree Drummond, KelleHampton or Beth  Anne I would die on the spot. Once I was done being dead, I would scrape myself up off the floor, pull myself together, tackle her to the ground and smother her with kisses walk up and muster some composure, politely introduce myself, let her know just how much joy her words and ideas and thoughts and stories and pictures brighten my days and bring joy to my life, inspire me, feed my soul with a sense of solidarity… and then I would beg them for pictures, you know, so I could blog about it, and then I’d just mention that the bottom line is I think she kicks ass. Cuz I do….I think we all kick ass. Bloggers are the coolest.

Now….if the celebrity in question is Mr. David Cook, all bets are off….and if it just so happens to be around 1:00 in the morning on a hot, sexy, summer night in Virginia Beach, and I’ve been throwing cocktails back for the last 11 hours…well then….the result might be 5 minutes worth of awkward & absurd flirtatious conversation, a lot of laughs, a kiss on his cheek with one of his whiskers getting stuck in my lipgloss (fact.) and, well, something like this…

Because let it be known that even though the burner is just set to simmer right now, I still love this man and he loves me. We love each other. Forever.

6. If you could pick one item to never have to pay for again, what would it be?

I’m taking a cue from Gentri here and choosing gas. I drive a LOT and it gets expensive and it’s an expense that we’ll have forever, so….gas. that’s my final answer.

7. what was your favorite tv show or movie growing up?
The Brady Bunch….does that make me old? God, I used to love Peter Brady. I would sit in front of the t.v. and kiss his box when it popped up during the opening credits. Dork.

So....go on!!!! go link up with Gentri!

Thursday is my favorite day of the week. It's all the anticipation of the weekend, without the letdown. For the last several years, my weekends have not been as amazing as they should be.
I also love the thought of you as a Maxwell. It could have something to do with connecting us a little bit more since my nephew is named Maxwell ;)
Also, you need to just periodically post that pic of the Cook and you. It is just such a fun, uplifting pic. You can't help but smile just looking at it.
