Quotation? We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit. – Aristotle

Thing your significant other does for you? Listens as I talk about whatever’s upsetting me. He REALLY listens. He gives me his full attention and he just lets me talk. Then, when I’m done, he gives me great advice, but then makes sure I know that he supports whatever I decide.

Thing you do for him? I like surprising him! He always does so much for everyone and asks for nothing in return. I love to buy him little gifts or stop by with coffee or lunch, or do little things for him that he wouldn’t do for himself.

Meal? If I could eat coq au vin, mashed potatoes, and French bread every day without turning into a heifer, I so would. Otherwise, I love a beautifully seared filet mignon and charred vegetables (especially sweet onions, zucchini, and red bell peppers).

Alcoholic beverage? Champagne, pinot noir, Riesling, or a top shelf Cosmo with real lime.

Dessert? Crème brulee or birthday cake with buttercream frosting. But the cake has to have been in the fridge for a while and eaten cold. Otherwise I won’t eat it, because apparently I’m a weirdo, lol.

Article of clothing in your closet? This is hard! My top three would include my fuschia silk Marc Jacobs dress with a sweetheart neckline and tiered skirt, my white Betsy Johnson Wink cardigan, and my shiny black Burberry Prorsum coat with ruffled sleeves and a cinched waist.

Pair of shoes? I literally cannot settle on just 1, 2, or 10! PASS. LOL.

Piece of jewelry? My engagement ring, definitely! And I have about a zillion different pairs of chandelier earrings I adore.

Cosmetic(s)? BareMinerals foundation with SPF 15, Chanel crayon eyeliner in Violet Smoke, Chanel lipstick in Coco Pink, Benefit BadGal mascara, and NARS eyeshadow duo in Sugarland.

Boredom killer? Shopping. When I get bored, it’s VERY dangerous.

Places to shop for you? Bloomy’s, Nordstrom, Intermix, Sephora

Places to shop for your home? Pottery Barn

Movie? Moulin Rouge!, Roman Holiday, Sabrina, Kill Bill 1 and 2, Gaslight, Strictly Ballroom, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Birthday Girl, To Die For, The Devil Wears Prada, You’ve Got Mail, Something’s Gotta Give, A Streetcar Named Desire, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Moonstruck, and pretty much everything with Jack Nicholson.

TV show? I love the Real Housewives too, especially NYC! So You Think You Can Dance, The Bachelor/Bachelorette (except this season; I can’t stand Allie), The Office, Scrubs, Top Chef, Barefoot Contessa, Sex and the City, Will and Grace, Platinum Weddings, and Bridezillas!

Album? I listen to more singles than I do entire albums, but I do love: Norah Jones – Come Away With Me, Frank Sinatra – Nothing But the Best, Christina Aguilera – Stripped, Jason Mraz – We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things, Jason Mraz – Waiting for My Rocket to Come, Justin Timberlake – FutureSex/LoveSounds, and pretty much every Beatles album/compilation on the planet!

Love him.

Magazine? Vogue, Allure, Elle

Way to treat yourself? Splurging on a full manicure and pedicure, buying new cosmetics, buying hardcover books, spending time in Barnes and Nobles and Starbuck’s just drinking tea and browsing, buying an expensive bouquet of flowers

Quotation? “A prayer for the wild at heart, kept in cages.” – Tennessee Williams

and

“The best thing to hold onto in life is each other.” – Audrey Hepburn

Thing your significant other does for you? Laughs at all my stupid jokes, pretends to like my terrible attempts at cooking, goes to church with me each Sunday and holds my hand as much as possible, listens to and soothes all my fears, surprises me with fun weekend plans, tells me he loves me before I go to sleep and first thing in the morning when we talk again

Thing you do for him? Make up crazy faces/dances to cheer him up, watch all his scary horror films with him even though I hate them, write him little love letters/emails/texts at random, rub his neck, back, and shoulders, hide candy in his car glove compartment for him to find

 

 OMG I AM SO LONG-WINDED, SORRY! lol this was too much fun, a great way to get my mind off the real world for a while! <333
