Back In The Game...sort of

So, if you have me in your Google Reader or any other kind of blog reader...you probably saw fifty-eleven new blog entries come up for me today. Fear not. I didn't sit down and write 40 something new blog posts. I reinstated all the older posts that I had deleted several months ago.

(read THIS entry to catch up on what I'm talking about)

Why did I reinstate them? Well, I mentioned a previous post that he's a really private guy. Not involved in any kind of social media or social networking of any kind. That's the whole reason the posts came down in the first place. So, a couple of weeks ago, in a random conversation, he tells me he'd be ok with those posts being back out there. Even though those posts mean the world to me because they document the start of our relationship, I was reluctant to repost them because I didn't want him just telling what I wanted to hear.

Last night, out of the blue, he asked if I had reposted those entries yet. So, after convincing me that he REALLY doesn't mind that they're out there, I reposted them this morning...and have had a BALL rereading them! So, with that...I'm back in the game, sort of. I've missed posting the random little details of my/our lives...but I'm going to be very aware and sensitive about what I post. Me? I could care less about what I post about myself (as evidenced by past posts). He's the one I care about.

Trust me, though. They'll still be entertaining! :-)


Round F'ing Robin Tuesday

OH what a day it is, dear readers (all two of you)!

For starters Brookie is back in the game. Oh HELL yeah. It's been waaay too long, baby girl. This week, we have a new partner in crime, "Don't Threaten Me With A Good Time". Go check out her answers and everyone else's too. Here are this weeks questions:

From Brooke:

1. What's the best thing about the area you live in?
mountains and snow. NEVER thought I would say that but man, I lookin' forward to the snow coming back and I can't wait to see Christmas around here!

2. What is your favorite fashion trend of all time?
HANDS down...popped collars. To me, that never gets old. I pop Wolfies collars all the time. He doesn't like it...but that's not the point now is it. :-)

3. If you won $5,000 today, what would you do with it?
Buy a house. I already have one picked out. It's not for sale...but that's a minor detail we can clean up later. :-)

1. What is your worst habit?
I smack my gum. I don't even realize when I start it but I realize when I do it. It drives me crazy so I know it does other people too.

2. Do you collect anything? If so what and why do you collect it?
Besides lip gloss(we've covered this)? Not really. I've never been much of a collector. I think that stems from how I lived growing up. On top of that...I can't think of anything I'd want to collect either. Is that sad? Yeah, kinda...

3. What is one thing that you would die to do?
Start my own fashion line. Don't know why...

From ME:

1. last book you read? would you recommend it and why...
"Living Dead In Dallas" by Charlaine Harris. The second book of the Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire Mysteries. I started reading them because I'm totally in love with True Blood. The books and the shows are very different so I would only recommend them if you don't watch the show or can handle following two universes with the same characters and different story arcs. With that said...they're fantastic books so far.

2. if you could have your favorite meal fixed for you, what would it be?
Roomie, back in Tulsa, used to fix a chicken risotto that was TO DIE FOR. She served it with these green beans that - I have no idea how she fixes them - were heavenly as well. Add a bottle of wine and then later on...Oreos and milk. Have I mentioned me and Oreo's are like Steven Adler and heroin? Yeah. Damn, now I'm hungry...

3. one place in the world you want to visit before you die?
China. Last year during the Olympics I became OBSESSED with China. I wanna walk The Great Wall, see The Forbidden City, The Water Cube, The Bird's Nest, The Terra Cotta Army...on and on and on. I'll get there...trust me.


Get Your Sexy On

My girl, Vonda, over at "Sole Matters" tagged me in one of her non-Tuesday blog entries. This particular post is all about feeling sexy. The rules? List five details that make you feel sexy then tag five ladies you'd like to know what ignites their sexy engine. Here are mine...

1. Running - I think my legs are my sexiest feature and running keeps them in shape. Not to mention that, on more than one occasion, a certain wolfman has attacked and ravaged me after I got home from a run because of how I looked. So...apparently...running makes me look sexy. :-)

2. "Cotton Blossom" by Bath and Body Works - I absolutely love this fragrance. I buy the body wash, body spray, bubble bath, lotion...you name it. If they make a product in this flavor I've bought it. I love how it smells on me. The wolf likes it too. I've even been known to spritz the bed with it on certain occasions. bow chicka wow wow...

3. This Outfit: Boy cut jeans, tshirt, flip flops. I actually wore this outfit all day Saturday in Aspen. I don't know why it makes me feel sexy...it just does everytime I wear it. I feel kinda feisty in it too. :-)

4. This Outfit: I actually wore this one in Aspen too...on Saturday night when we went out for dinner. I bought it earlier in the spring. I actually bought the shoes first beacuse I couldn't bear to think of living life without them and found the dress to match. :-) I feel sexy everytime I wear it...especially walking thru the restaurant on Saturday night. I felt sexy as hell wearing it in our room later on that night too. I'm just sayin'...

5. This Guy - no matter what...he makes me feel sexy because he thinks I'm sexy. No matter what I wear, how I smell, how much makeup I have or don't have on. When I'm making a pig of myself with Oreo's and milk and when I'm dancing around and singing. On my best days and on my worst days, he makes me feel sexy. And that, dear readers, will set you free.

I tag the girls at the following blogs:


Three Questions: Special Edition

We interrupt your regularly scheduled programming to bring you a special edition of Three Question Tuesday. Today, Vonda over at "Sole Matters" and I get to take a break and ask Avery over at "Slightly Undone" three questions each. Hopefully next week, since Brookie Brooke is back, we'll be back to our regularly scheduled programming. Glad you're back Brookster! :-)

Here we go!

From "Sole Matters":

1. What is Your Current Obsession?
1. Kindle
2. Etsy
3. drinking too much and being deliciously irresponsible with friends
4. trashy television (i.e. So You Think You Can Dance, the Bachelor/Bachelorette, NYC Prep, Miami Social, Gossip Girl, 90210, Real Housewives (of anywhere)....my list goes on...

2. What Would You Eat For Your Last Meal?
My Grandma's mac and cheese, and her homemade stuffing. I am a carb-o-holic and completely content with my body being a bit more fluffy than it should be. What is life without enjoying food you love? A close second would be a sweet potato tempura sushi roll. Accompanying all of the above would be a HUGE bottle of red wine. Specifically 2006 Frog's Leap Cab Sav, Cupcake Cab Sav, or Bitch.

3. What's Your Dream Job?
To be a book editor. Of chick lit novels. I love both reading and writing, but during my writing classes in college I found I hate being responsible for the whole concept of something (i.e. a book). But to take someone else's dreams and ideas and help them mold it into something even more fabulous makes me all giddy and squirrely inside.

And now from me:

1. the most embarrassing thing you've done to get the attention of a boy?

Wow, this is a toughie. I seem to make a habit of doing things that most people would consider ballsy but to me are just normal. So I would have to say...those times I didn't do anything at all. I am funny in the things I have the guts to do (kiss a stranger, move to another city for a boy I met during spring break, initiate shameless sexual innuendo) but sometimes I just can't say anything. And during those times I act like I am in 2nd grade and smile and look away and giggle. Not grabbing life by the balls and doing what I want to do in that moment is probably the most embarrassing thing of all.

2. Something that you've done recently of which you are really proud (big or small)?

Taking a chance on Mr. Bean, even though the odds were so against him. These past two weeks the happy hours and time spent out have been greatly reduced. It's been a total lifestyle change. But I would do it again in a heartbeat. It would've been easier on both me and him to not have the surgery, but taking the chance and being his advocate has definitely given me a new outlook on life.

3. Name 3 of your favorite movies and why they are?

Hmm not too much of a movie buff. I tend to fall asleep in theaters/on the couch. But I did have Netflix for a short period of time to try to change my habits.

1. Vicky Cristina Barcelona - Why? two words: Penelope Cruz.
2. Both Father of the Bride Movies - no matter how many times I see them, I love them and think they are hilarious.
3. Breakfast at Tiffany's - love, love, love Audrey Hepburn. There is something so innocent and awesome about movies without tits, sex, and bad words thrown all over the place.

Big thanks to Avery for taking the load off of us today. I'm of the opinion that Ms. Avery can join our little group any time she wants!

Have a great day, poodles. If you're lucky, I may have a regular "non-question" post later this week. Stay tuned!


Question Tuesday

So the question of the week is: What's your favorite smell? Well, I couldn't narrow this down to just one...so I have a top 5.

1. Freshly cut grass - reminds me of summa time! Usually around April/May in Tulsa people would start mowing their lawns on a regular basis and this smell would fill the air. To me, that indicated the start of summer. Here in Boulder, I didn't have that experience. I know people mow their lawns but it must be the lack of heat/humidity or something. One thing I miss about Oklahoma.

2. ck One cologne - It's what the boy wears and I. love. it. Sometimes I'll find a way to lay my head on his shoulder just so I can smell it. It's what wakes me up every morning. He gets up before me and showers and I usually wake up while he's shaving. It wafts into the room usually followed by him...coming to wake me up.

3. Christmas trees - I'm a Christmas freak. Seriously, it's not even funny how much I love Christmas. I love the smell of real trees...especially with cinnamon potpourri simmering somewhere. Yeah, I'm a nerd. Sue me.

4. Puppy breath - new puppies, when they nibble on your nose. In the words of Brookie Brooke "le sigh".

5. Houses at Thanksgiving - the smells of all the foods melded into one harmonious, tasty, "come eat me" fragrance. It's the smell that lulls you to sleep while you're laying on the couch watching football praying for death because you've eaten so much. It lingers in the house well into the next day. Yeah, that smell...

Check out the answer from my girl, Vonda, over at "It's What's In The Soul"!

God willing, our dear Brooke will be back from her summer adventures across the pond and will rejoin Vonda and I for the question game again next week! It's about DAMN time!


Tuesday Question

So...for today our question is: Who is your celebrity crush?

Oh Lord, I have several. Here they are in no particular order.

1. Anna Panquin - she's the SOLE reason I started watching True Blood and trust me...she hasn't let me down. She's hot as hell and that southern accent is to die for.

2. Zach Effron - Holy hell, it's a good thing he's over 21 or this would be bad. Just saw him in "17 Again" and totally fell in lust with him. Loved him in "Hairspray" and am totally sad he backed out of the "Footloose" remake. I've already told the Wolf that I'd give him up for Zach Attack if the chance ever arose. :-) I kid (not really).

3. Josh Holloway - Sawyer from "Lost". Oh. My. God. He's chocolate sexy on a stick. Bow chicka wow wow!
