Fill in the blank Friday

1. I am in love with my new Chamilia charm bracelet that my Dad got me for Valentine's Day (shout-out to Mom for helping him pick the charms). His thinking of me meant so much to me, and the charms are is even a crab!!

2. The bravest thing I've ever done was probably making it official in my mind to visit Jamie while she's in Australia. I know that seems like a no-brainer and not very brave, but if you know me and my OCD ways, then you know this is huge. I'm a total control-freak when it comes to money and I live on a really tight budget. I have savings that I guard with my life and any time I have to dip into that account I'm guaranteed to have a cry- or shout-fest over it. Well, travel to AUS? Yea, good-bye savings! And, as Jamie and all of you know, I get nervous when I fly alone, and I feel better knowing the airport that I'm landing in. Well, an international flight alone and an airport I've never been to in a foreign country are bound to get my heart racing a bit. Now, all of that being said, I cannot wait to visit Jamie and play tourist in Australia, but actually doing it comes in pretty high on my bravery list.

3. I feel prettiest when I'm having a "skinny" day, when my bangs cooperate and when I have freshly painted finger- and toenails.

4. Something that keeps me awake at night is work, my to-do list, when I have something I need to get off of my chest, fighting with people, etc...pretty much anything that causes worry has the potential to keep me up at night, or cause me to sleepwalk.

5. My favorite meal in the entire world is dependent upon my mood. I know I've answered this question with butternut squash ravioli before, but today I think classic fish and chips is winning out. I don't have one specific favorite, but rather a list of food loves. I'm a foodie!

6. The way to my heart is through words and touch.

7. I would like to have a spa day. I could really go for an all-out day of pampering: facial, massage, pedicure, manicure, brow wax, hair cut, etc.


  1. hahah, fish and chips are good too!! I bet you will have some great fish&chips in AUS!! When are you going??

  2. YAY for Australia!!!! :) That is AMAZING! And it is extremely brave :) I love to travel, but I am such a nervous traveler. I always get anxious when I fly alone, always double checking everything etc. so I completely understand the reason you answered this question the way you did :) I'm so proud of you! It's great to be responsible, but it's also nice to splurge on a fantastic vacation for yourself! After all, you deserve it! :)

    Your dad's Valentine gift is super sweet!!! :)

  3. Good bang days are essential for a pretty day! Mine are currently not co-operating :(

    Stopping by from Lauren's! Have a great weekend

  4. I love "skinny" days. That's when I pull out my jeans that make my butt look good, and I walk tall & proud ;)

    {There's a giveaway going on until Feb 20 @ my blog ... I'd love to see you there!}

  5. you said you feel prettiest on a skinny day - I feel prettiest on a jewelry day! wearing my Chamilia bracelets and necklace!
