I shouldn't have to tell you....but I'm awesome

Let's start this shindig with an outfit post - why??? Because it's sort of  a fashion blog. Sort of. 

  Scarf - Thrifted       Sequin Shirt- Thrifted       Jeans- Thrifted

You wanna know why I chose that face? It's my best modeling face. This best showcases my modeling abilities. You like? I knew you would. 
1. 5 items you can't live without on a daily basis(water, food, shelter, and clothes don't count) 
a.) Jesus
b.) my laptop
c.) my crusty, old, flip- phone
(fully aware I need to join the 21st century - - - but this phone has stuck with me through thick and thin...)

 e.) people 
Did you know I REALLY like people? 
You know how a flower needs water?
THAT's how I feel about people. Love 'em. 

2. All time favorite book? Why?
Oh my dear - - - I do like reading. It just makes me so sleepy.... so I read the same things again, and again, and again, and again - - - well, you get the picture.
 My favorite book outside of the Bible- (true story) is probably Stargirl. It's written by Jerry Spinelli and it's delightful. I am she. She is me. We are we. I heart Stargirl. And the follow up - Love, Stargirl. 
 Every time I read it - I feel less "odd" and more unique. I feel a kindred spirit with the character. It's a beautiful love story about loving people and loving yourself. 

3. Something you'd like to accomplish before the end of 2012
This is a true, honest wish for myself- I'd like to get our house clean. Like, for real clean. Organized. Put together.  Confession: I. am. a. slob. Like.....truly- so embarrassing.
When I confessed in the teacher's lounge the other day- a new teacher at school was quite surprised and said she never would have guessed. I look put together. I'm not. I'm a huge, gigantic, awful slob of a human being. It'd be a major accomplishment to get my messes cleaned up. (Just an fyi- it's NOT the husband who is the slob.)

4. If you could go back and relive any year of your life which year would it be?
I  know a lot of people hated high school but I was one of the lucky ones. I would LOVE to go back and relive my senior year. I would have been more "present". I miss color guard and winter guard - with a flaming, burning passion, I miss it. I yearn for the jitters that jumped in my heart before we went on the field at half-time. Sounds ridiculous but it was a good time and I was DANG good at it too. (Yeah, I'm the dorky lady who still has her color guard costumes stored away with her letterman's jacket. What?)

5. What do you wish people knew about you without you having to tell them?
Um- hello!- I'm awesome with a healthy dose of self-confidence. Stick around! Get to know me. I promise, you'll like me. And I REALLY am this nice in real life. :o)

Your model look is better than 'blue steel' from Zoolander. ;)

I know what you mean about reading putting you to sleep. I've started to listen to books on tape on my commute so I can still 'read' but keep my eyes open as well... lol!
