Thursday's Sunday Stealing: The What's What Meme


I'm late, I'm late, to a very important date... Link up here!

The What's What Meme 

What is on your bed right now? 


Absolutely nothing - not even sheets. Maybe a couple pieces of laundry, but that's it!

What’s your favorite word or phrase? 

"Word." Or, if I'm questioning the veracity of something, "Word?" It's a dual-edged sword. ;)

What is the best ice cream flavor? 

Usually, I'd say chocolate with chunks of peanut butter, but I'm feelin' pistachio right now.

Did you wake up smiling this morning?

I woke up around 8 AM after sleeping since early evening the night before. I slept well, but man, I kept my contacts in and they were gross! So, not quite.

Is there something in your life you used to have, and now miss? 

Yes. My son, Robby, and my mom.

What major company would you like to work for? 

I know this sounds silly, and I don't really work for them (though I would in a heartbeat), but I was literally just telling Rob the other day that I love being a JAFRA consultant. I love every product we make, I love what the company stands for, and I'm proud to be associated with them! Truly!

What time do you wake up on a typical morning? 

Well, I have the oddest sleeping schedule. I don't sleep well at night (it's 4:03 AM now), and I don't stay asleep well. I usually stay up for a day or three in a row and then crash, burn, repeat. Sucks, I hate it, but that is the way it is and I no longer try to fight it.

What holiday makes you sad? 

Get the picture? ;)

Where does a good night’s sleep rank on your priorities? 

Ew!! I can SMELL that!

It doesn't rank very high (see above).

One song that makes you cry? 

Three songs do, actually, and we played them at our son's memorial service: "Tears in Heaven" by Eric Clapton, "The Day You Gave Me a Son" by Babyface, and "To Where You Are" by Josh Groban. I'm crying now, just thinking of those songs.

 How old was your mom when she had you?


She was 25. I wanted to be 25 when I had my first baby, too. Chloë came the day before my 25th birthday. Rats, so close!

When is the last time you went to the beach? 

We were in Miami's South Beach at the end of August, hanging out with my friend Kellee who was in from Vegas. Good times - until the sky opened up, and then we ran!

What is the most random object around you? 

Probably my 8yo daughter, Sophia's Twilight Sparkle My Little Pony... loves those things!

 What is your favorite sushi? 

I love anything with avocado in it. Sushi = yum!

What food do you find disgusting? 

Lots of things, but speaking of sushi, do NOT try the sea urchin kind. OMG, YUCK! Even my gastrically-adventurous husband thinks it's nasty. Take his word, if not mine.

If you could have any type of dog in the world, what would it be?

I would give anything to have a long-haired chihuahua puppy!

What was the last meal that you made for yourself? 

Does driving to Pizza Hut last night count? I mean, I dialed the phone, placed the order and drove over there to pick up the food. That totally counts. Right?!

Is the hard drive on your computer full or getting close to being full?

No, but I constantly have to delete things off my iPhone to keep that from getting full. It's tres annoying.

Are there any songs that you prefer the acoustic version over the regular version?


Unplugged was my first (of many) Eric Clapton albums, so I fell in love with the acoustic version of every song on the album. "Layla," maybe? I don't know. I love them ALL.
