music / collections / __________

Happy Friday lovies!!!!

last night i worked on a CD for my friend Marla who sent me one a few weeks ago. I'm off to the post office to send them to her, so she can listen to my "fabulous music taste" on her trip to Austin this week. I was REALLY excited by the cds! (oh it's the little things) I might have bought this song from itunes cos i've always loved it (johnny depp lovers, click on that link... you'll want to, TRUST ME). I'm pretty darn excited for her to get them!!!

i also got a rough draft of the CDs i'm going to send my swap partner (alison, you're really pretty + your blog is really cool... just so you know) for tiffany's mixed cd swap.

speaking of the little things... how about a round of
Fill in the blank Friday?

1. The first thing I do in the morning is hide under the comforter and beg Max for 5 more minutes... (he's usually up before me and my hitting of the snooze button annoys him so he comes back to the room and tells me i need to get up) my "5 minutes" usually turns into 15 and i'm rushing but i HAVE to have my cup (or two) of coffee.

2. Every night before bed I read a few chapters of the book i'm reading (I'm LOVING "eat pray love"), say my prayers, and beg Max to get up and turn on my white noise sound machine so i don't have to get up. ha.

3. My favorite thing to do when I'm having a bad day is have a glass of wine and have a movie date with myself (this of course is AFTER i call my twinkie crying). I believe movies are the great escape of life.

4. Something that makes me cringe is when i compare myself to people i went to high school with and in my head i think they have the perfect career (not job!) and perfect family of their own- facebook makes me cringe sometimes lol.

5. Social situations = any excuse i can get dressed up, and meet people? i enjoy it!

6. I like to collect vintage knick knacks (certain apple & rooster things for our kitchen), anything with the state of Texas, art, books especially classics - in every used book shop i go to, that's the first section i check out- i collect different covers of "lolita".

7. Weekends are for exploring our city together, movie dates in my pajamas, sleeping in, thrifting, reading on the back porch deck in the sunshine .

Play along over at the little things we do...

& lovely followers, don't forget to sign up for my giveaway if you haven't yet! xo

Love your fill in the blank answers! I hit the snooze button usually 3 times before I wake up! I'm definitely not a morning person!

Cassie said...

Fantastic answers to the blanks again this week Micaela!

And everywhere I turn today its all about the mixtape - fabulous xx

pooftacular said...

Sending a letter your way! It's done and will make it's way into a mailbox either this evening or tomorrow morning. I've got a few other things on my plate to take care of.

I really like those book covers! :)

Claire Kiefer said...

Micaela, I could not have said it better about facebook and my high school classmates! Of course I'm happy when other people are happy, but so often I am reading status updates about weddings and pregnancies and I'm like "Oh no! I'm 28 and I can't even sustain a happy relationship!" Sometimes facebook makes me feel like I am so BEHIND! Especially when I look at their cute babies . . . then I become green with envy. :(

Happy Friday pretty girl!

AMEN to the facebook thing. Just remember, people are really good at faking. LOL.

The Childlike empress said...

thats really interesting that you collect different covers of did that come about?

Sara said...

I am such a rubbish commenter...I KNOW!!

I also know that days I can't get out of bed are never going to be on my list of best days..

Jo said...

Love how you fill in the blanks!

Btw, I deleted my Facebook account about six months ago....couldn't be happier! ;)

S and O said...

I love collecting vintage goodies too :) mostly porcelain figurines and dolls :)


p.s. love your blog!

Kara said...

Those Lolita covers are awesome!!! That book disturbs me in such a wonderful way.

Belen said...

Facebook can make me cringe sometimes too!!!!

And you sleep with a noise machine? Haha, that's so great! You're adorable Micaela. I sleep usually with a DVD on. :) At one point I'd leave "Cinderella Story" on during the nights. Then it was Twilight, then Harry Potter 5, then Harry Potter 6, then Zombieland for a while, then New Moon when the DVD came out, and now I've left Ghost Hunters on, hahah. You'd think I'd be scared as I'd fall asleep to zombies or ghosts, but I don't! Instead, I fear hearing I'd hear a real one in my home, so I block it with ones from a tv show! Hahaha!

Rhianne said...

Cynthia said...

social situation: any excuse to get dressed up and meet people, I couldn't agree with you more!!

& i love that you collect lotita covers so cool!

p.s. your frined is pretty lucky I love mixed Cds!

Well Nice Chels said...

I love your fill in the blanks. I wish I had the chance to do mine last week, but I mean honestly I could have just copied yours almost verbatim minus the white noise machine. Though that could be interesting.

Have you seen P.S. I love you? If so, I picture the scene of when they fight over who turns the light off.

Hope you are having a great week!
