what's your favorite piece of clothing?
right now, my purple maxi dress. it's entirely too hot to be wearing anything that resembles pants, so i've been living in this maxi dress all summer long.

_____ really bothered you today:
nothing. honestly, nothing really bothered me today. it's the end of an amazing weekend, and i couldn't be bothered to get upset about anything!

whose team are you on?
my own. does that count?
i've recently found out that i will be very (very, very) busy at work starting in mid-september through the end of november, and i've decided to be my very own cheerleader.

in 140 characters or fewer, summarize your day.
glared at alarm clock, four miles, entertaining day at work, trash tv with husband, important & very insightful phone call with a helpful new friend

what can't you forget?
lots & lots of things. i tend to remember a lot of things that i should forget about. i would like to be able to say that i'm not a grudge-holder, and i'm someone who constantly looks forward instead of looking to the past, but that's just not honest. i'm working on it though!
(am i alone in this??)

yes or no: everyone should have a backup plan.
if you would've asked me a few years ago, i would've said no. maybe it's an age thing? i think i've matured a little bit in these past few years (hopefully, right?), and realized that having a backup plan doesn't mean that you're setting yourself up for failure, and to need that backup plan. to me, it just means that i've come to terms with the fact that, well, things happen. or don't happen!
i don't have a backup plan for everything, but it sure is reassuring sometimes.

write your recipe for creativity:
i think that in order for me to be creative, i need to have:
passion for whatever creative outlet i choose,
i need to have
fun doing it,
and i need to have
the determination to get it done. then the desire to be creative just sort of flows naturally.
passion + fun + determination = creativity


i'm heading to dallas this weekend for work. that might sound boring since there's work involved, but i'm dragging the husband along, so it means that we'll be staying downtown, eating at new restaurants, maybe visiting the dallas aquarium and hangin' out by a fancy pool - so no complaints on my end.
i hope you have some fun weekend plans!


thank you so much for stopping by! your comment means a lot.
