A Happy Friday!

1. When I'm nervous I tend to ramble .

2. My favorite item in my closet is my trusty black heels. Black goes with everything and I'm most comfortable in high heels. "I don't know who invented high heels, but all women owe him a lot." -Marilyn Monroe .

3. Enjoying a glass of wine paired with a bubble bath is my favorite thing to do when I need to relax.

4. My favorite childhood memory is birthdays with my twin sister. My Momma would get a list of our classrooms and invite everyone, including the teachers lol So on birthdays we'd have a house full of all our friends. One year that is my favorite childhood memory is when we were leaving to move to another air force base (so our house was pretty empty) and we had a sleepover. All our friends brought their sleeping bags and board games and we stayed up late and felt like half the house was ours. I was in 2nd grade and I remember everyone telling us our parents were the coolest. I still smile when I think of that birthday and that compliment, because at 25 I still believe my parents are the coolest.

5. Something you may not know about me is i was born in Madrid, Spain .

6. A true friend never judges you and because of that, you can tell them everything. It's a blessing to find someone you can confess the big things to as well as discuss the latest episode of Grey's Anatomy and in that same conversation talk about sex lol The comfort of openness; i value that in my friendships .

7. Something I hope people think of when they think of me is that I'm easy to get to know, oh and that I'm the biggest Robbie Williams fan there ever was.

Play along on Lauren's blog. I love Fill in the Blank Fridays and reading your answers.

i'm off to drink Toucan Mango Chai tea, a gift from Alex & Mina over at ...Sending Postcards. (the cutest newly weds who sold everything to travel the world together. Mina is gorgeous and Alex has always had my vote cos he reminds me of Chris Martin, and we know how much i love my Coldplay) Thank you love birds! xo

& speaking of happy mail, Caroline at Coeur de La is hosting a mail scramble. One of the things i really love? is going to the post office. Seriously, i love going.

enjoy your Friday darlings! I'm in the best mood today: call back from a job i really wanted, exciting birthday plans i promise to tell you about tomorrow, tonight me and Max are taking a photograph for our new church directory & celebrating said call back with a burrito date night.

I love that I can tell my friends anything so openly.

And I'm glad you're one of those friends I can share silly things with! :)

I loved reading your birthday of my fave birthday memories was our 16th, we had 16 girls over for a sleepover. Too much fun.

I am so happy you got a call back! I got your comment on my blackberry while I was in the bank and totally smiled for you! And celebratory shots will be taken in your honor this weekend!

Love your face, lady!

2. My favorite item in my closet are my knee high Coach Monet boots even though I haven't worn them! This is followed closely by my Goldenbleu bags - I'm a bag girl and may be getting my first Chanel soon!

3. Talking it out with my husband is my favorite thing to do when I need to relax.

4. My favorite childhood memory is traveling with my cousins/brother/aunt + uncle to various places throughout the west coast (Disneyland up to Las Vegas)

5. Something you may not know about me is that I was the school story telling champion in 4th grade.

6. A true friend is there through every phase of your life.

7. Something I hope people think of when they think of me is wow, that girl can bake, has great style, and is pretty cool.

Micaela said...

Krissa, APOLO=YUUUUM. :) and thank you for the congrats on the potential job! i know you have been so supportive of my frustrating time finding one :p so thank you dear friend. Heels ARE best, esp. those zebra ones of yours :) xo

Priya, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!! happy celebrations indeed!!!! wow 13 years... someday i hope i can say the same :) awww i hope you guys have a wonderful night ;)

Erin & Gabby, slumber parties ARE best!!! i think as grown ups, we should still be allowed to have our best friends spend the night, don't you think? lol

Cynthia, off to check yours out!

Cat, i always dreamt of marrying someone in the air force :) enjoy being an air force wife! and yes, keep my birthday memory in mind because it was also a great way to have a going away party too. (the only thing hard about being a military child)

Aimee, i loved reading your answers! esp. your storytelling talent lol and #3 is just sweetness!


my name is lauren. said...

wow! i didn't know you were born in madrid. interesting factoid :).

and how fun that you've got such cool parents.

oh...and i always wondered about apolo ohno yawning before a race. i have a friend who used to do that before she'd sing solos at church. i guess it works!

hope you have a good weekend lady!

Sara said...

I love Robbie Williams too!!

Ashlee said...

my mom has the very same tray!

and i too am a rambler.

Marisa said...

Ash said...

I think you're easy to get to know--you always spill your heart here, and I really like that about you. Hope all is well with you and Max!
