Random Tuesday Survey!

Random Tuesday Survey!

I was perusing through one of my favorite beauty blogs (Amarixe) and saw that she did a little survey.  I figured, why not?  Self-reflection is always good πŸ™‚  More importantly I invite YOU to take the survey yourself and post your blog in the comments section!  

1.) Mood:Tired but happy and… a little anxious.  I love this beautiful Spring weather we’re having but it’s hard to fully enjoy it with stress of Spring semester ending.  Still, I love the sight and scent of the beautiful blossoms πŸ™‚

2.) Are there any spring trends you’re loving this year? Any you’re hating?  I am a little surprised to say it but I’m digging the colored jeans.  Yes, yes I know how 90’s-ish, but I love color.  Adding a bright, shocking pair of pants to my wardrobe has been kind of fun! Hubby and I are really pinching pennies (see question #5) but I let myself by a cheap pair of red pants from Target.  And oh yes, they are absolutely fun πŸ™‚  As far as hating… I just don’t like chunky sandals and shoes.  Not my thing I guess!  

3.) Do you like to cook?  I actually love to cook!!  However, working full time while being a full time grad student has put a real kabosh on my kitchen time.  Right now it’s all about convenience.  However, I have kind of a “bucket list” going of things I’m going to do when I’m done with school and one of them is trying lots of new recipes.  I’m actually hoping to take a baking class!  I love cooking but have never really invested much time in baking.  I’ve made the typical cookies and simple pies but nothing really challenging.  So I’m hoping to hone a new craft and get some great tips!  

4.) Current nail polish:  I can’t believe I’m about to say this but… NONE!  (I know, everyone who knows me is like, WHAT?!!!).  Truth is I felt I needed to give my nails a breather… like a REAL breather.  So I haven’t had nail polish on for two weeks.  However, with all this beautiful weather I’m pining to break out my OPI Alpine Snow.  If I had change to spare I’d march right out and buy Essie’s “A Crewed Interest.”

5.) What is something you are excited about at the moment?  Well I’m excited to announce that Nathan and I are house-hunting!  It is such a crazy process and a little stressful but just thinking of the possibilities… it makes me so happy.  I am so pathetic that I actually day-dream about decorating said future house for Christmas.  Yup, I’m special, aren’t I? πŸ˜‰  Anyway, we are EXTRA tight with our budget and putting every penny we possibly can towards our down payment.

6.) Current outfit:  Just jammies πŸ™‚

7.) Are you a heavy or light sleeper?  I am a cursed light-sleeper.  My dear hubby is probably the quietest snorer (yes, it exists) ever but any little sound wakes me up or prevents me from sleeping.  Even if I fall asleep and he is reading it will wake me up when he turns a page. Not even kidding!


8.) What size handbag do you prefer?  I guess I’d have to say medium.  I have a crossbody right now that is very convenient but sometimes I wish it had more room so I could carry more important things. You know, like lip gloss πŸ˜‰  

9.) Do you like karaoke?  Truthfully? No. I can’t stand it. The funny thing is I absolutely love singing, am a huge choir nerd, and have sang by myself in front of tons and tons of strangers. I take it pretty seriously! But that’s why I can’t enjoy Karaoke… I am too much of a perfectionist! It sounds silly I know but I can’t seem to make myself make light of it because I take it so seriously.  Still, I have participated in Karaoke a few times in my life. But it’s not my activity of choice and have on occasion screamed along to, “Wannabe.” πŸ™‚

10.) Weekly goals:  
-Get to confession and a few other Holy Week services 
-Get some work done on my big project
-Make a delicious dessert for Easter dinner on Sunday πŸ™‚
