An amazing photographer and great writer at Mamahood Among Other Things tagged me in a Meme!  Eleven, eleven, eleven.  Now I don’t usually play along with memes, but since I adore this Mama, and to tell the truth I think I must have burnt some brain cells in that Florida Sun as I’m struggling for some original content, I figured I would do a little over sharing and see what ya think!

Eleven Questions Assigned To Me

1.  What is your bag style?

~Right now I prefer a big red purse that can carry everything from my phone to my laptop.  I really should carry something smaller, this huge beauty gets too heavy and hurts my back!

2.  Do you collect anything?

~Um…besides dust bunnies?  I would say travel books.  I hate to admit how much I love travel books, oh and shoes.

3.  What is one beauty advice you swear by.

~Sunscreen in your make-up, always a good idea!

4.  Pet Peeves.

~Slow drivers.  People who chew with their mouths open.  Gas passers in closed spaces.  Rude, just saying.

5.  Do you recycle gifts?

~Ha.  No.

6.  If you are to give yourself a Native American name, what would it be (Sitting Pretty, Laughing Burp…)?

~Right now I would be “Sleepless Mama”.

7. Do you still read the papers or do you get most of your news on line?

~They still make papers?

8. If you were an animal, what animal would you be?

~I’m thinking a cat.  An indoor cat.  Someone feeds you, pets you, tells you how beautiful you are every day, buys you super cute toys and cleans up after you?  That’s not all bad.

9. Do you still write letters and cards or do you do them electronically these days?

~Sigh, not like I should.

10.  Leather watch strap or metal?


11. What was your favourite subject at school?

6.  If someone gave you $200.00 err $600 and told you, “You must spend it on yourself.”  What would you buy? (me, I’d consider accepting this Blue Topaz number by Matthew Campbell Laurenza.  Sigh shopping at Neiman Marcus on line is dangerous!)

    Sitting pretty laughing burp is hilarious. That’s my 6 year old daughter.

    I think the least favorite part here about laundry is the folding. I am getting better at not putting items in the wrong person’s drawer, but my folding would def prevent me from every going into a career in retail.

    Laundry? Eww.
