Tagged by Nomadsoul over two weeks ago and I’m finally getting around to answering the questions.  Here goes…

  1. What did you have for breakfast?  Trader Joe’s English muffin with peanut butter!  YUM. 
  2. What was the last item you purchased?  Shoes for Chloe.  Crocs to be more specific.   Gone are the days when I can shop solely for myself.  Sigh….
  3. Dream trip you hope to one day take?  Iceland or Japan.  Both are high on our list!
  4. Most meaningful gift you’ve ever been given? A drawing from Chloe.  She gifts me something everyday and I am so grateful for them all.
  5. When was the last time you told someone you loved them?  5 minutes ago.  I tell the kiddos every chance I get.  Its so wonderful to say it.  Also, I send them emails regularly telling them how much I love and adore them.
  6. Guiltiest guilty pleasure tv show you watch? Scandal!  We don’t have cables but I get it Amazon Prime.  I woke up at 3:30 AM this morning and found myself wide awake.  I saw the finale and it was so awesome.
  7. What is your bedtime routine?  Get the kiddos ready for bed, shower and climb in bed! It’s my time to go over Tumblr, blogs, and anything on the web.  It’s quiet, it’s dark and I love every second of it. 
  8. Do your family and friends know you have a Tumblr?  Not at all.  It’s like leading a double life.  My girlfriends don’t know, the moms at the kiddos’ schools and my families have no clue.  It’s the weirdest thing ever. 
  9. What is one piece of advice you’d give your 20 year old self?  DATE, DATE and DATE…  Don’t be in such a hurry to grow up, don’t be in such a hurry to have it all.  Have fun and enjoy life…
  10. The yummiest dish you know how to make (and bonus points if you link to the recipe).  Fries at Left Bank.  Let’s be honest, the only food that matters are fries and champagne.  Oh, and a fucking Big Mac. Seriously, I would do bad things for a Big Mac. 
  11. What is one beauty product you can’t be without? Neutrogena’s sunscreen, Aguaphor and coconut oil.

Dear 10-Year-Old Self,
Before you ask me when you have your first kiss or if you’ll ever have a boyfriend, I need to tell you some more important stuff first. What’s more important than a first kiss, you ask? Plenty.
First of all, don’t let that kid in your class, Danny, who called you fat, make you self-consciously wear oversized sweatshirts for the next four years to hide your body. That kid is horrible and years from now he will be boring and bald and trying to get in touch with you to come to the set of the TV show you work on. No, you don’t work on Cheers. That show’s not on the air anymore. That would’ve been awesome, though.
Another thing: Say thank you, always. Gratitude is the closest thing to beauty manifested in an emotion. When you’re grateful, people are attracted to you.
Also: Make sure you appreciate Mom and Dad. Yes, they never seem to let you do anything now except read books. Once you turn 18 you’ll never get to live with them again, and you’ll live far away, and you will miss them so much it hurts.
Next: Learn forgiveness and bestow it generously.
Finally: Don’t let anyone give you any crap. Mastering a balance of these last two will take you a lifetime, so you had better get started now.
