Last week was unusually busy. There was the normal business surrounding the holiday, and then my dog sprained her leg on top of that. She is okay now, thank goodness! I am going to answer your questions over the next several days. Thank you all for your questions!
Liana said... the girls on the real housewives of orange county are always drinking!!! what would be your favorite or signature drink!!
My favorite drinks are either a dirty vodka martini with blue cheese stuffed olives or firefly mixed with Simply Lemonade. I also like red wine. My favorite non alcoholic drink is hot tea. I love hot tea from Teavana, I posted about it here. I also love Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane tea during the holidays.
Heather said... What is your favorite way to spend a Saturday (start to finish)?
I love Saturdays! My favorite way to spend a Saturday would probably be going to the movies with my husband Saturday morning. You can see movies really cheap at the theater near us and they let you bring in Starbucks. It's perfect! Then I would go get a pedicure and maybe do a little shopping. At night I like to try a new restaurant with my husband and then maybe meet up with friends afterwards. I also love to see concerts and plays if there is something fun to see.
Legallyblondemel said... Oh, hooray!I like the question you gave me - what do you like to do on weekends? Speaking of, have a great one.
My favorite kind of weekend is a low key, unscheduled weekend. I love to get out and do things, but I don't like having a schedule. Some weekends my husband and I don't do much and then other weekends we are super busy. Sunday mornings I love to go have brunch with my husband and linger over the Sunday paper. Other than that, I like going to the movies, trying new restaurants, shopping, visiting friends, and lounging around at home. I sound so boring!!
Nantucket Karen said... Where did you develop your AMAZING taste??Please visit my blog as I mentioned you on it today :)
Karen, I am absolutely flattered by your comment! I love traditional things. Furniture, clothes, etc. I usually wear turtlenecks and collared shirts. For some reason I have never liked trendy things. I think the main reason I don't like trendiness is that I can't justify buying something that I will only wear one season unless it is super cheap.
Having classic, traditional taste does not always serve me well though. When I was looking for wedding invitations I managed to pick out the most expensive wedding invitations at the store. Those who know me were not at all surprised at all by that. I decided to forgo the super expensive invitations and go with simple William Arthur invitations instead.
Petunia said... I ditto the how-you-met-hubby story! Another good one, what are your favorite cosmetics/skin care items?
I am going to share how I met my husband later on this week. As for cosmetics and skin care items, here are some of my favorites:
Skin Care Favorites
Body Care Favorites
Thanks for all of your questions. I will be back later with part two. I hope you all have a nice week!

I urge you all to try this coffee maker if you are a coffee lover like I am. The coffee tastes great and you can have a cup anytime. Now that the semester is winding down, "anytime" is turning into "around the clock" though!
I am going to do another coffee related giveaway soon. More details will be coming in the next few weeks! :)
I hope you all have a nice week!

*Update* Totally Me, you're awesome! Thanks so much for the suggestion!
I love Williams Sonoma. Yesterday I was perusing the new Williams Sonoma catalog and found tons of things I want (Ahem! Mom, if you are reading!).
Over the Sink Cutting Board - I saw this yesterday on Vineyard Vogue's blog and thought this would be so practical for prep work.
