Tag! You're it...

I've been tagged! And for the very first time. Great timing too - I have the house all to myself. Thanks Amy! Here goes...

What's your current obsession?
My camera! We just bought a Nikon D60, so of course I am obsessed with taking pictures! Also, trying to figure out all the bells and whistles.

What's your weirdest obsession?
Cleaning! I must vacuum every day. I've always been a neat freak.

What are you wearing today?
Intending to exercise with the Wii Fit, I put on workout pants, a t-shirt, and sneakers. Maybe I'll go for a walk...

Why is today special?
I'm alive. And the sun is shining.

What would you like to learn to do?
Two things I'm really bad at: surfing and skiing. I need lessons!

What's for dinner today?
Maybe I'll just have a piece of this:

What's the last thing you bought?

I'm about to buy these. Aren't they gorgeous! And vintage!

What are you listening to right now?
Lately? A lot of country music. Especially by these good lookin' guys:

"And the sun is shinin'. This road keeps windin'. Through the prettiest country from Georgia to Tennessee. And I got the one I love beside me, my troubles behind me. I'm alive and I'm free, who wouldn't wanna be me..."
Keith Urban, Who Wouldn't Wanna Be Me

What's your favorite weather?
Fall. I love when summer is just fading into fall, the days are a little cooler and there's a gentle breeze in the air. I call it "fair weather", because that's when the fair comes to town here in NC.

What's your most challenging goal right now?
Getting and staying healthy! (Maybe I shouldn't eat that pie I mentioned above.)

What do you think about the person who tagged you?
I just "met" her recently, and I think she is a lovely person. She's so sweet and helpful. And a chemistry professor. How cool is that!

If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be?
Nestled at the bottom of the Sedona Mountains with this view out my back door:

Here's a picture of me (right) at the Grand Canyon about 7 years ago. I LOVE Arizona.
Favorite vacation spot?
Did I mention that I like Arizona? Anywhere that there's a beach. I haven't been to Paris yet, but once I do, I'm sure that will be my favorite. =)

What would you like to have in your hands right now?
This apartment seems to get smaller everyday, so a set of keys to a new house would be awesome!

What would you like to get rid of?
My stepkids. Just kidding!!!
I would have to say our van. Even though we've only had it a couple years, I'd like to trade it in for something a little smaller and more fuel efficient. Like the Saturn Outlook:

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
Could I go back in time? If so, I'd go back to early 2006 and savor every single moment I had with Aydan even more.

Which language do you want to learn?
French! So when I do get to Paris, I'll be able to communicate! Plus, I think it's a beautiful language.

What super power would you like to possess?
The ability to make wishes come true. Like Barbara Eden in I Dream of Jeannie.

What's your favorite thing about the city you live in?
It's small but it's not. One minute you're in the "city", drive a mile and you feel you're in the country. Everything's convenient. I know it like the back of my hand.

What's your favorite piece of clothing in your own closet?
Anything that fits me well. I love my baby doll tops and have my eye on this one from Old Navy.

What's your dream job?
To be a labor and delivery nurse or midwife and share in the joy of bringing new life into the world.

If you had $150 now what would you spend it on?
Probably books! The current contest at the b-line has added tons to my gotta read list.

Do you admire anyone's style?
Cameron Diaz, Jessica Alba, Angelina Jolie

Describe your personal style.
I'm a jeans and t-shirt kind of gal, but I like to compliment my outfit with cute accessories - jewelry, shoes, or handbags. Dress up a cute pair of jeans, and I don't think you can go wrong.

Who's movie premiere would you want tickets to?
It's a toss up between Johnny Depp, Clive Owen, and Hugh Jackman...swoon!

Who's closet would you want to raid?
Eva Longoria-Parker (love her style too), or any of the celebs named above.

What are you most proud of?
Right now? My husband. We've come so far and got through so much together. I couldn't have done it without him. We continue to grow each day, and I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with him. I know that there is lots in store for us.

Now the rules of this tag:

1. Respond and rework: answer the questions on your blog, replace one question you dislike with a question of your own invention.

2. Tag 7 other people you would like to learn more about.

Here's mine: Rowena (Red Ruby Rose), Leanna (Leanna Jackson), Genevieve (Genevieve Gail), Mia (Mia Beads), Deah (Carpe Diem), Betty (Betriska), Kristen (Sweeter Than Me)
