Odds and Ends & a questionnaire ...

I received an email yesterday questioning my design to paint the office turquoise.  I am thrilled you all know enough about me to point out when I blog about something that doesn't make sense to you!!  Her question ... Why would you paint a room such a bold color when you might still have to list your house and move to Kansas??  Thank you so much for pointing out that I have failed to reveal to you in that post that we have news!!!  

Our move has been officially cancelled!!!  We are in Atlanta for the duration.  Lawyer has moved into another department at work, one that no longer requires him to move to the home office.  He will be spending more time on the road ... but we get to stay put.  

The Lawyer house is thrilled!!!!  

On a completely different subject ... I signed up for Hopsy's Pink Swap and was paired with New England Girl in Pearls.  She is super sweet and I can't wait for her to receive her package.  It should arrive at any moment!!!  She emailed me yesterday and tagged me with these questions which I have answered for her on the blog.  It is always fun to answer questions ... it gets me thinking.  Hers were quite good!!!

1. What type of makeup could you not live without?
I do not wear a lot of makeup ... not near enough probably ... but I would never give up mascara, blush and lip gloss.  Unless I am down right exhausted I will apply those three before presenting myself to the world.  I love Bobbi Brown and she has been my go to for the last ten years, but I have dabbled in Chanel and instantly fell in love.  I am not sure I will ever use another mascara now that I wear Chanel.  It's magical!!

2. If you could live in any state other than the one you are in now, which would it be?
Hmm... I am a city girl but I do looooove the beach.  I would have to say that my pick would be New York.  I could feed the need for the big city hustle and bustle and then travel to the Hamptons for the beach girl inside of me.  Of course I would have to have enough money to be able to afford both!  
I do enjoy quite a few states, Colorado, Texas, Kentucky, South Carolina and Maine to throw a few out.  I could never, ever life at peace in a place that was landlocked!!!

3. Is there a song on your iPod that you would be embarrassed for someone to see/hear?
Hands down ... "Gold Digger" by Kanye West
I should remove it but I do love to blare it!!  I would be so upset if one of my kids heard it!

4. What show are you currently hooked on right now?
Definitely a toss up between two quite different shows.  Downton Abbey and Revenge!

5. What is the last book you read?
One Day by David Nicholls
I was not a huge fan of the book but I started it and was committed to finishing.  I found it rather sad!

6. What is your cocktail of choice?
Depends on my mood.  I am not one to turn down a cocktail of any kind if you make it for me, though I do not care for rum or gin at all!!!  I am most often seen with a glass of wine (white or red), a vodka and cranberry with extra lime or an old fashioned.  I do LOOOOOVE bourbon!!!

7. What iPhone apps could you not live without?
Words with Friends, The Weather Channel and Google
I am falling in love with a new app .... my 365.  It forces me to find a photo to share about the day.  

8. Top 3 favorite movies?
Steel Magnolias for its perfect cast and classic pairing of Southern women, Message in a Bottle for the incredible love story and Sex and the City for the over the top amazing fashion 

9. What is your favorite place to shop?
Here in Atlanta Nordstrom, Ann Mashburn or Kate Spade but in New York ... anywhere!!

10. What is your favorite mid-day pick-me-up?
A trenta shaken black tea no sugar and a sweet treat!!!

11. What is your favorite thing to blog about?
First and foremost, my family and then fashion, design and besties!!!

Kisses to you all!!!
