Questions and Answers, Part III {and some random musings}

Some Random Musings:
  • I can't believe I forgot to mention this, but Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince was AMAZING! I couldn't get over how good it was! Definitely one of my top 2 favorites of the entire series and I can't even imagine how great the last two movies will be. I love seeing Harry and his friends grow up.
  • I wouldn't be awake right now if it weren't for my McDonald's Iced Coffee {with hazelnut syrup}...these things are so delicious.
  • I also can't believe that I made it past 500 followers! Thanks for all of your sweet comments and believe me, I wouldn't be writing this blog if it wasn't for the love and support from all of you!
  • I'm cashing in my free day tomorrow and I couldn't be more excited! The bf and I have a fun little mini vacay planned so I will be MIA until Sunday. But you know me, I never go anywhere without my camera {except when I met Kate and Danielle and I didn't have the stupid thing} so there will be plenty of pictures!

Now, I hope you all aren't tired of learning more about me! One thing is for sure, you're a curious bunch...and I love it! HA! Without further ado, more answers to those creative questions!!

Miss Madras from
Madras and Pearls and Preppy in New England both asked,
How did you get from Georgia to California?
Do you ever want to move back East?

{insert big sigh here} How did I end up in CA? It all started back when I was a flight attendant and I was visiting the future bf in Las Vegas right around my 23rd birthday. We decided to drive to LA from Vegas and from my first moment in Hollywood, I knew that I wanted to live here. The future bf and I had so much fun {our first kiss too} sightseeing, finding fun bars and restaurants, shopping, eating Pinkberry, and going to the beach. Once the bf and I were seriously dating, it was hard and stressful to do the long distance thing. Over the next few months we went to Los Angeles 3 more times. In September I had a random layover in LA and the bf came to meet me. I impulsively quit my flight attendant job on the spot (probably not the best way to handle the situation...oops) and we decided to make the move to LA the next month. He had been accepted to film school here and moved out in September. The next month, my mom and I packed up my car {actually it was just me doing the packing, as my mom was way too angry and upset that I was moving} and headed West. We drove cross country and a week later I was moving into my new apartment.

As for moving back - that's the plan anyway. I am currently in graduate school and after I get my MBA we will see where my career takes me.

Mrs. W from Keeping up with the Westmorelands asked,
What is your favorite band/singer?
What does your morning routine consist of?
Favorite accessory?

Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved U2. Still do. I also like Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, Muse, and the Silversun Pickups. My morning routine consists of {hopefully} waking up on time, showering, spending way too long in front of my closet wondering what to wear, putting on some makeup, brushing my teeth, feeding the cat and dog, and racing to work like a maniac. I am ALWAYS late by at least 15 minutes. My favorite accessory is my watch. I have to know what time it is and I feel naked when I don't have it on my wrist. And it's not a pretty one either. It's a Timex Ironman watch set to military time {that's what I grew up using} and it still has 3 time zones programmed on it because I needed that when I was working as a flight attendant {ATL, Ireland, Kuwait}.

Jill from Peeptoe Pumps and Pearls asked,
What is your favorite clothing store?
What is your favorite cocktail?
What's your middle name?

Hi Jill! I would have to say my favorite clothing stores are J Crew and Gap. I like to spend my hard earned money on pieces that will stay in my wardrobe for a long time and these two stores really allow me to do that. I think the styles provided by these stores are both timeless and classic. My favorite cocktail varies on where I happen to be. If I'm at home, I like to make a mimosa {champagne and oj} or wine spritzer. If I'm out, I'll order a mojito, margarita or vodka tonic. However, my all time favorite way to hydrate is with an ice cold ice water. My middle name is Lynn. No significance, my dad just liked it.

Preppy in New England asked,
What is your favorite place in New England?

It's funny because even though I have traveled A LOT, most of my travels have been outside of the United States. Of all the states that make up New England, I have only been to the airport of Bangor, Maine. But the lobster rolls at the airport restaurant were delicious! I'll have to be sure to plan a trip to some more areas of New England and I'll definitely come to you for sightseeing recommendations!

Holly from Pink is My Signature Color asked,
If you were given the opportunity to live one day over,
what day would it be or would you even do it?

Hmm...interesting question! I am not sure that I would want to live any of my days over. I have made mistakes in my life, but would never erase them because they've made me who I am today. However, when I was working as a flight attendant, I was on a quick Friday trip to Dallas and I was supposed to be home that same day. The next morning my Little from my sorority was getting married and I really needed to be at the wedding because she had included me in a special event at the reception. My trip ended up getting delayed and I was stuck in Dallas all weekend. I missed the wedding and it was really unfortunate because my relationship with my Little has never been the same. If I could change that, I definitely would.
