i don't usually do these survey-like posts, but this week is kicking my butt and i thought it was a cute one.
thanks for posting bri!


...things you'll find in my purse
1. at least 4 lip colors (usually closer to 7...); mostly revlon lipsticks.
2. my iPhone remote for taking outfit photos.
3. bobby pins (except on the day i really want to wear milk maid braids *sigh*).
4. the teal + orange wallet Dago bought me for our anniversary.

...things you'll find in my bedroom
1. my teddy bear Lionel Rupert.
2. a notebook for middle-of-the-night ideas.
3. Contessa.
4. a magazine (or 4) that i haven't quite finished reading yet.
5. a snack, because i'm a terrible "grown up" and like to eat in bed.

...things I've always wanted to do
1. buy a trip for my parents.
2. chill with a sloth.
3. write a self-help book or book of personal essays.
4. learn to french braid.
5. learn to ride a bike abroad (for some reason i refuse to learn on this continent, but can envision myself riding in Florence or Buenos Aires).

...things I'm currently loving
1. making scrambled egg sandwiches after a long day.
2. my ankle strap flats. seriously, i know you're all sick of them, but i don't care.
3. saying yes to new opportunities.
4. dreaming of a new apartment.
5. my bloggy friends. i'm so happy to have finally found a little community on the interwebz.

...quirks I have
1. if there is a song playing that i know the words to, i can't not sing along.
2. i meow as the greeting in most of my texts/messages/encounters with people.
3. if i put on the wrong outfit in the morning, i will feel uncomfortable all day or until i can go home and change.
4. i'm really self conscious about my ankles.
5. i perpetually worry that people don't like me and that they think i'm weird or obsessed with them.


  1. haha number 5 on your quirks is totally me. Also, Julien and I have had entire meowing conversations with each other.

  2. You live in Austin and don't know how to ride a bike?!?! EVERYONE IN AUSTIN RIDES BIKES!

    I love this though! :) I think you and I would be fast friends if I still lived in Austin. My husband and I "chirp" at each other in passing at our house. We do it all. the. time. To where sometimes I forget I'm at work and will chirp at my boss or an agent as I pass them. Whoops. Promise I'm an adult.

    Also, when I like a person, I just really like them and want to touch them and tell them they're pretty and be their friend. Haaa I have to literally hold back from lavishing them with my love LOL. So I get you. <3

  3. youtube can teach you anything, including how to french braid! i had no idea this was a skill until people were amazed i could french braid my own hair.

  4. Yay!!! I'm glad you did this, it's so fun huh? And I'm with you on the singing one, I always sing along when I know the words :)

  5. I read this on bloglovin' earlier during one of my classes. You'll be glad to know you're much more interesting than my economics professor. Much more.

    I kind of think I need to own a Kitty Keychain Self-Defense Devise.
    Oh, and I used to have the same problem of worrying about people thinking I'm obsessed with them..I'm just a very touchy-feely kind of person that loves new people. And I talk way too much when I have things to talk about with a brand new person.. this one girl literally told someone that, I was kind of offended because I thought we were going to be BFFs..it was not to be.

    But, when I do meet you for the first time, expect a hug, I feel awkward if I don't hug people.


  6. Oh, and we can sing along to every song together..because i can't NOT sing along. Neither can Curtis, probably a good thing he likes singing or else he'd have to deal with listening to my awful voice all the time.

  7. One more thing.. I could probably just email this to you, but whatevs, I'm already typing.

    There's a "southern blogging community," but apparently us and Arkansas aren't good enough. So, what do we doooo?! I'd totally start one, but..that's a whole lotta time.

    Food for thought :)

    1. i don't know why there isn't a texas blogging community, but there should be one! i don't even know how to start one. i want to do a little austin meet up thing maybe around spring break/sxsw and you should definitely come so i can get that hug and we can sing some songs.

  8. Oh man, I love encountering other people who don't know how to ride a bike. We are few and far between, it seems! Also, holla for eating in bed. I don't care if you're not supposed to do it, I share my bed with a sleeve of Oreos. which is way better than a boyfriend.

    Don't tell anyone I said that.

  9. Cute blog!
