Round Robin Tuesday. Round 10?! Holy COW!

I can't believe this is our tenth round of this! Crazy stuff! Here's this weeks entry:

1. What word describes how you feel about your life at this given moment?
Content. That was a no brainer. There's nothing like starting over, fresh, to give you a new lease. A year ago, I never would have believed I would be in the place I am now but life has a funny way leading you to the place you need to be.

2. What is the funniest pickup line you have heard?
While I was still living in Oklahoma, a guy who was OBVIOUSLY Native American walked up to me at an OU watch party:

Dude: "Do you have any indian in you?"
Me: "Nope. Why?"
Dude: "Would you like some indian in you?"

I literally lost my breath laughing. He was kinda cute and way funny...I let him buy me a drink. And no, I didn't get a little indian in me that night. :-)

3. What is one of your favorite inside jokes? Explain.
Wolfie does the BEST Matthew McConaughey impression and he quotes "Dazed and Confused" all the time but there are two D&C quotes we say all the time:

"You just gotta keep on livin', man. L. I. V. I. N."
"All right, all right, all right."

Brookie Brooke, I miss seeing your Tweets every day but I hope you are having THE BEST TIME EVER over there! And in honor of the passing of the great Michael Jackson, here's my tribute with a song that I sing to Wolfman and dance to all the time!


Round Robin...whatever day it is!

Brookie Brooke is away on assignment...so our updates for the round robin questions will sporadic and probably not all on the same day. Bear with us...we'll all eventually post! With that said...here's this weeks questions:

1. What's your favorite work of art, and post a picture?
I'll go you one better and tell you who my favorite artist is. Jasper Johns. I fell in LOVE with him during my art classes in college. I love the way he uses pop culture and the way he uses color in a controlled way but makes it look out of control sometimes. My favorite piece is this:

and I have a copy of it hanging in my living room.

2. Something that you've done recently of which you are really proud (big or small)?
Hands down...moving to Denver/Boulder on my own. It was the hardest yet the most rewarding thing I've ever done. I've never questioned it for a minute...which leads me to believe that I did the right thing.

3. What's your design style?
when left to my own, I'm a minimalist. Less is more. I can do other styles when needed...but when I do mock-ups for clients at work...my favorites are usually the minimalist versions of things. I decorate the same way too.

Round Robin Tuesday...er, Wednesday

This weeks round of question is late for all three of us due to ME. I've been sick as a dog since Sunday afternoon. I've thrown up so much I think I saw my feet come out of my mouth at one point (sorry for the TMI). Here are this weeks questions though!

1. What's your current ringtone and why did you choose it?"
Still of The Night" by Whitesnake. Why? Because it's the sexiest song ever. Don't judge...

2. Name 3 of your favorite movies and why they are?
"Pee Wee's Big Adventure" - again, don't judge. If you sit and watch it...it's funny as hell. So what if he whacked off in a theater and got caught. Who hasn't?! Wait...was that out loud? :-)

"Win A Date With Tad Hamilton" - Shake-a-doo. It's cute, funny, mindless...plus you get to see Josh Duhamel in a towel. I'd watch grass wither and die if I could see Josh Duhamel in a towel (pre-Fergie of course!).

"Hairspray" - "GOOD MORNING BALTIMORE..." yeah I'm one of those girls. I know every lyric to every song and I can even do some (read MOST) of the dances. James Marsden is super cute too!

3. What have you been listening to lately, music wise?
The newest Shinedown CD is awesome and tasty. I listen to it when I need something agressive. Since Jimmy Fallon started and I realized that The Roots were his house band, I've been revisiting all their stuff...they're so damn good. And lastly, "Big Whiskey and The Groogrux King" by the ever talented Dave Matthews! Whenever he puts something new out I ALWAYS wear it out immediately. This one is well on it's way. Shake me like a monkey! :-)

shop-o-holic AKA "he said I could!"

So I haven't done a clothing post in a long.damn.time so I thought "what better way to post something other than our round robin Fridays". In honor of our trip to Cabo next month and at the behest of Wolfie, I pillaged Forever21.com and bought some new outfits. I've hardly been shopping since moving to Colorado (which is crizazy) in order to save on expenses but the Wolfman talked me into it. So, here we go!

Outfit #1:
This one is for going out at night. LOVE the jean skirt.

Outfit #2:
This one is probably to wear on the flight down. Boys don't understand that you NEED an outfit to wear on the plane. You can't just wear anything! hello?!

Outfit #3:
I didn't really buy this for the trip...but oh well. It's for lounging and being lazy.

Outfit #4:
This one is definitely for going out but not dancing. The girls my shake right out of this one!

Of course I have to buy shoes for all of the outfits (another thing that boys don't understand). AND...this weekend I need to go find a new swim suit! Man, it feels good to shop again! :-)


Round Robin Tuesday

1. When do you feel like summer has started?
Memorial Day. It's a long weekend, people are opening their pools, cooking out, having parties. To me, that's when summer starts.

2. Favorite tv shows: childhood and present.
When I was a kid I was a cartoon junkie. If there was ANY kind of cartoon on, good or bad, I would watch it. I'm still a cartoon junkie. I'm totally unashamed to admit I watch Spongebob and a couple of others. As for adult shows now? I don't know how "adult" it is but I got hooked on 90210 again this year. I love Biggest Loser, One Tree Hill, Greys Anatomy, The Dog Whisperer, all the CSI's, and anything on TLC especially "Jon and Kate". I know it's a train wreck but I CANNOT look away.

3. What do you get out of blogging?
At first...it was just something to do. it was a place to tell my funny (and/or dumbass) stories. But the more I got into it the more it became a place to dump and purge without the worries of opinion and offense. It became theraputic and soap opera-ish all at the same time. I actually had fun doing it. After Wolfie and I got serious, I let him read it. He was bothered by some of the entries, embarrassed by others, laughed at pretty much all of it. He's a private guy and I knew he wouldn't want that much of "our" lives out there even though nobody he knew read it. He never told me to quit but I quit for him...mostly as a sign of respect i.e. I respect the fact that you're a private guy and I don't want to do anything that would offend you or make you feel uncomfortable because I love you. I miss it though. If I could find a way to leave him out of it I would start up again. Alas, that's hard to do when you're dating/living with someone...
