Fill in the Blank Tuesday

I actually stole this feature from my sweet friend Lindsey. I'ts supposed to be called "Fill in the Blank Friday" because that sounds way cuter with its alliteration and all but we're going here on Tuesday instead. So thanks for the idea Lindsey (I stole your picture too - I live in the city now; I don't have a sidewalk to draw on....or a chalkboard. Sad day.)
1. If my house was on fire and I could only grab 3 things, I would grab:
-My box of journals. I've journaled since I was 13 and I definitely wouldn't want to lose all those memories.
-My computer-simply for all the pictures it has on it
-Sandy. She is my cabbage patch doll that I got when I was born. She's as bald as can be and so cute. She's been on nearly every slumber party and church camp with me, made the journey to college and yes, even Atlanta-she's tucked neatly away in the closet on a bed of sweaters!

2. A smell I really like is:
Banana Boat sunscreen. By far this is my favorite smell. It's just so summery. I'm not the greatest about wearing sunscreen but I will lather the crap out of someone with banana boat (unless you're hairy -->Banana Boat + Hairy Back=Really disgusting, greasy back hair. Trust me, I've witnessed this on the beach year after year.)

3. Something you might not know about me is:
I dabble in modeling. I really want to do a runway show. So far all I've done is magazine shoots (nothing major - don't be straining your eyes for me in Glamour or anything!). I went on one major casting call in November (and definitely cried when I didn't get picked) but think it would be fun to do runway.

4. Some of my favorite websites to putter about on:
This great blog called Run With Me. Inappropriate? haha just kidding. But for real, some of my favorite sites are YOUR blogs.

5. This weekend I will:
Be going for a 13 mile run (that is if my knees decide to be 25 again and not 87) and going to dinner and some comedy show with friends and trying out this church.

6. Nothing makes me happier than:
Being with my family and being on the beach

7. A bad habit I have is:
Talking really loud and really fast.  I blame it on the fact that I'm partially deaf and will probably need these in a few years.

PS - First day rocked. Thanks for all your sweet words! My "cube" has a humongous window that looks down over the city. It's pretty pimp.

13 miles.... gahhhh I must learn your ways.

My sissy poo models a little bit too, and I think you guys totally rock for doing so.

And hey at least you don't need to hear to read blogs right ; )

I use to have a cabbage patch doll too! It was lost during our move to Hawaii when I was little though. Thats so cool you still have yours. I tend to talk really fast too! People always tell me to slow down! LOL. Hope ATL is treating you well so far! Good luck with the new church! 13 miles? Dang! You go girl!!! :)

Dee Paulino said...

I have always thought being in a runway show would be so much fun! I would love to hear about your experience if you are part of one.

ps: 13 miles, go you!! my 21 year old brain doesn't allow me to think past 2 miles, I'll get there someday though ha

It was nice getting to know you better, xo

I'm guilty of talking super loud and fast too -- I got yelled at in spin class yesterday b/c my instructor heard me from the back of the room OVER the blasting music! oof! myyy bad!

I love the smell of sunscreen too! my mom has a candle that smells like banana boat and beachy sand and I always try to "borrow' it!

I would grab my computer too for the same reason.
