Friend Making Monday



Kenz does these fun little posts on Monday... and I am sitting in a Starbucks killing time before I go retrieve husband and we head home.  Thinking I should shop but my knee doesn't have it in me today, so I blog. 

Three of your favorite movies:
Sound of Music
Dirty Dancing
White Christmas

Three of your favorite things to drink:
Trenta Unsweetened Iced Coffee from Starbucks
Caffeine Free Diet Coke
Water

Three of your favorite songs:
In Your Eyes - Peter Gabriel
Kissing a Fool - George Michael
Waiting for You- Seal

Three people who have been a positive influence on your life (outside of your family):
My former boss.  I've been out in San Francisco keeping husband company while he had work to do on Friday and Monday.  I arrived on Thursday afternoon and spent the afternoon chatting with her.  She reminds me that I am capable as a woman.  (*Edit* Geeze typos, I really should print ALL blog posts!)    Yeah, can't say enough good things about her.

My friend Chad.  Back when I lived in Boulder he worked at the nicest health club in town.  He was extremely encouraging to me.  Just said come in and work out... 

My husband.  I know, doesn't exactly count, but when we met I was almost 100 pounds heavier.  Wanting to last, wanting us to last I knew that I had to be doing more for my health.  I can't give him credit because I was the one to do the work.  But being with him has been one of the best things that has ever happened to me.  He makes me want to be the best version of myself. 

Three things you to do keep yourself entertained:
(When not overwhelmed by school.)
The Internets
Shopping
More Internets


Three things you're attracted to in the opposite sex:
Height!
Smarts!
and more Smarts!

Three things you love about yourself:
I know who I am.  It's not been easy getting to his point but I have a VERY definite sense of self and have no fear of letting the world see who I am.  Good and bad.
I've figured out how to put one foot in front of the other every single day to keep myself moving forward.  Not always easy, but necessary.  Life is not static.  For so long I sat paralyzed by fear, by fat, by life.  It's a process, I'm working through it.  I don't always get it right, but I keep trying. 
My sense of style.  I'm vain and I know it. 
Fav thing in cosmetics bag. on Twitpic
 I'll travel in the above outfit today.  Dress is Calvin Klein, belt from LL Bean, Sweater is cashmere from Anthropology and the necklace is vintage Dior and belongs to twin sis.  Oh and the jacket I am super proud of... An online return at small Macy's up near UNH, its Ralph Lauren and I paid 20% of its retail price. Pin is a vintage Mink Puff.

The last 3 people you text messaged:
Husband
Twin Sis
Mom

Three things you're looking forward to this week:
Cleaning
Laundry
Being at home with nothing to do.

I love that you dress beautifully to travel. As a child, I remember admiring the pretty clothes on the women when we flew. I distinctly recall that I hoped to look that classic and feminine when I grew up. But I came of age during a grunge phase, so my dream didn't come true. It isn't too late, I've decided. A classic, beautiful wardrobe is in my future even if I have to build it one piece at a time.

Thanks for sharing the photos. Lovely ensembles!
