Icicles and Life is Good!

The beautiful Belen,
who is MY inspiration when it comes to working out
gave me the GREAT honor of giving me not 1, but 2 tags!
I have to say,
She's pretty amazing! 
I wish I lived closer and I would come order all my Starbucks from her!

The first is 
Rules: Go to your photos file and select the 8th folder
| Select 8th photo in folder | 
Post it to your blog and tell the story behind it!

So this is my photo...
This was taken in Winter of 2007. 
I had just moved into my first apartment,
and my sister came down to visit me.
We wanted to go run some errands.
Go get dinner, rent some movies and maybe hit up Target for snacks!
We went outside and my car was one giant icicle!
We took turns scraping away the ice for about 20 minutes!
It was a lot of hard work, and we almost fell down
a LOT of different times,
but we goofed around, telling jokes, as we did it. 
To this day I still love that moment.

The second tag was for the 
"Life is Good" award!
and with all good award come the questions! 
So sit back and enjoy getting to know me :)

1) What do you do when you're bored?
Boredom? What's boredom?
I can't remember the last time I was truly bored, with nothing to do!
Haha, ok, well my favorite things to do, when there is nothing else going on are....
Watch movies on Roku, play with the dogs, surf the net, go to the gym
take a nap, read a book...I guess it depends on the mood. :)

2) Are you an autumn or spring?
I am DEFINITELY an Autumn! I love the falling leaves, the crisp air,
the smell of wood burning in fireplaces. It just feels perfect!
And if that wasn't good enough...I'm getting married this year in October!

3) Quick! You're stuck at an airport for hours and the only options are
crossword puzzles or an old novel that nobody's heard of.
Which one do you pick?
None. I hit up the nearest fro-yo stand
grab the book i'm reading at the moment from my bag 
(Why would I ever be in an airport with one?! THAT is a better question!)
and enjoy the free time to read, relax and get lost in fiction.

4) Jane Austen or Emily Bronte?
LOVE Wuthering Heights :) Emily it is!

5) Do you feel prepared for the five other questions coming your way?
Hmmm is this really a question?

6) Who's your hero?
My mom. She has been through a lot in her life,
but she never stops smiling.
I get my optimism from her. :)

7) Favorite word?
Pedantic. haha 
It's a bit of a joke between Spencer and I. 
Makes me giggle just thinking about it. :)

8) Are you one of those "checklist" people or 
are you a "wing it and hope everything goes well" sort of person?
I love my lists... but if things change a little I go with it, and make the most of the situation :)

9) What phrase has stuck with you in your life?
"Passion will make you crazy. But is there any other way to live?" -Howard Hughes
I just think it's perfect in everyway, and it reminds me to live my life passionately.

10) If you were to choose between coffee and tea, which would you go with?
Coffee! mmmmmm I could have an iced mocha right now with a pump of coconut....

So, now I suppose i'm supposed to tag 8 people to give both of these two...
Sooo you lucky ladies get to do both!

Summer of B is for Brown
Chloe of Sean & Chloe
Lacey of Lacey in Love
Mara of M Loves M

Have fun ladies! Can't wait to read your answers!

PS- Winner of the Ribbons carafe was announced here Congrats to the winner!

I have to ask, how do you pronounce Belen? Is it Bell En, or Bell In, or Bell Len? I love it and my husband and I talk about it all the time, but have never seen it.

Thanks! marcie
