Random is my middle name!

Currently watching: AGT
Currently drinking: iced coffee
Currently feeling: worn out from a full day

Ok...some of you have been asking me to get more personal about myself sometimes. Or maybe it's the same person who has been asking. I don't know, but I suppose I'm pleasing at least one person! This is about as personal as I'll get. Here is a random survey going around and I thought I would share my answers. Feel free to play along or tell me what a loser I am! :)

1. What is your favorite item of clothing?
My favorite is an old shirt that I have had since I was around eight years old. I still wear it! My grandmother was a dispatcher for the police department and had to take classes every so often to learn more about the codes. She got me a navy South Carolina Criminal Justice t-shirt and it was so big that it came down to my knees. I'd sleep in it all the time. I grew into it and now it fits me better than any other shirt and I remember her every single time I put it on.

2. What are your biggest current obsessions?
My mainstay obsession is Kelly Clarkson. I'm also in love with my Nikon that I got for my birthday. I often have an obsessions/favorites post each month, so I guess there will be more on that list!

3. Who inspires you?
For me, it's more like what inspires me. I get the most inspiration just by looking around me or the sounds that I hear. Inspiration comes in so many forms!

4. Who is your favorite designer and why?
Marc Jacobs. He is not afraid to push boundaries and has a bit of a punk edge to him. He also takes prices into consideration for many items and created Marc by Marc Jacobs so that everyone can afford a designer piece.

5. What is your favorite song ever?
Oh goodness, I have so many favorite songs. For me, the ones that stand out the most are Breakaway and Because of You by Kelly Clarkson. Every lyric in Breakaway relates to me and the sentiment behind Because of You is one that I also can relate to. If I can relate to a song in any sense, I do often consider it a favorite.

6. What is your favorite song right now?
I'm really feeling Battlefield by Jordin Sparks. It really showcases her voice and has a catchy chorus while still hitting you with a powerful message.

7. If you were a cookie, what would you be?
Well, that's a strange question. Perhaps a Nutter Butter! I love peanut butter and I'm rather nutty! :)

8. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet- what words would describe your rainbow?

Moleskine planner (red), soda (orange), roses (yellow), iPod shuffle (green), nail polish (navy blue), flip-flops (indigo), and eyeshadow (violet). I suppose those are the things I use the most with those colors. :)

9. What's your favorite film?
Dirty Dancing, Grease, The Devil Wears Prada, Finding Nemo, and My Fair Lady. Am I cheating by picking more than one? Yes, but I love them all for entirely different reasons. :) And I can't simply just pick one! If going based on cinematography alone, What Dreams May Come wins hands-down. That is one of the most fabulously made movies ever.

10. Who's your favorite actor?
Actor: Mel Gibson, George Clooney
Actress: Audrey Hepburn, Julia Roberts, Natalie Portman

11. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you be?
London. Great shopping, great fashion, great music, great sights...the list goes on. Normally I would say Paris, but I've been falling in love with London for the past year. Plus, it's easy enough to get to Paris from there...so I could always get to the other in the same trip! There I go finding a loophole again! :D

12. What are your three favorite smells?
Rain, vanilla frosting, and apples are among my favorites.

13. What are your three favorite tastes?
Cheesecake, apples, and vanilla are ranked high.

14. What is your most treasured possession?
I know I should probably say my wedding and engagement ring, but my answers might surprise you. I say answers because while it's under the same classification, it's from two different people. My aunt and grandmother both left me their jewelry collections. I don't have that much to really remember them by (besides stuff they gave me) and I feel them with me every time I wear an item. Those two women raised me and I like to remember everything they did for me. If I could choose another thing, it would be my stuffed polar bear that Larry gave me back in 2004. I love polar bears and this little guy has slept with me almost every night since I got him. Yep, I'm 25 and I still sleep with a stuffed animal. I'm not ashamed! My polar bear's name is Nanook which is the Inuit word for "polar bear", so I basically have a polar bear named Polar Bear. Yep, I'm original...HAHA.

15. What did you always want to be when you grew up?
A teacher. I think I would still want to be if I were back home. I don't really want that here. It's not a knock against the school system here. It's just that many of my credits would not transfer and I just don't feel like starting over with all of that. Instead, I'm hoping to do something in the fashion industry or with photography (even better if it's a mix of the two!).

16. If you were an ice cream flavor, which would you be?
And I thought the cookie question was strange! I'd be that chocolate-vanilla mix. I'm a no-fooling kind of girl, kind of like the flavor vanilla. I don't hide behind anything. And I'd throw in a little chocolate just because I like to mix things up a bit and give the unexpected!

17. If someone made a movie of your life, who would play you?
I think I'd want Rachael Ray, Ellen DeGeneres, or Natalie Portman. Rachael is bubbly and talkative. Ellen is the funny girl. And Natalie is the smart and down-to-earth girl. Goodness, I don't know. No one looks like me, so I'm having to go on personality traits! And I think I just successfully made myself sound conceited in this answer. D'oh!

18. What would your perfect afternoon consist of?
An unlimited shopping spree with my best friend, playing with my baby brother and cousins, lunch at The Cheesecake Factory, and dinner at The Olive Garden with my hubster. :) And maybe throw a chick flick in there!

19. If you were a flower, what would you be?
A rose. While being delicate, if taken care of properly, they can grow and blossom each year.

20. Tell me a random thing...be it your favorite line from a song, scene from a movie, quote from a book...tell me about something you love.
Right now, my obsession is Glee. The pilot was full of so many of my new favorite quotes, but one of my faves is from Mercedes! Her character is hilarious!

"Look, I'm not down with all this background singing nonsense. I'm Beyoncé, I ain'ts no Kelly Rowland!"
