1. What was your first car?
I actually got a {BMW 3.25 IS} the day I turned 16 as a hand me down from my mom when she upgraded. (Yeah, just a tad bit spoiled, I know!)  Funny thing was that at the time, I had ZERO interest in driving!  All of my friends had their licenses so I was never without a ride.

2. Who was your favorite childhood teacher?
{Mrs. Wright, 1st grade, Shirley Lanham ES in Japan; Ms. Lujan, 7th grade science, Andersen MS in Guam; & Mr. Baskwill, 9th-11th math, Guam HS in Guam}  I have quite a few which is probably why I became one myself :)

3. Were you involved in any sports/extracurricular activities? Share pictures if you can!
I don't have any photos on hand right now but yes, I did!  Volleyball, cheer leading, tennis, student council, & foreign language club.

4. What was your favorite birthday party?
Actually, this was perfect timing!  I just had my birthday this past Friday and my friends and family threw me an amazing  surprise party!  To top it off, my hubby, my sister, and my brother all went in to debut their surprise gift:

Meet our new addition:  Frankie!

5. Who was your teen celebrity crush?

6. What show/movie did your parents not allow you to watch?
My parents were not strict with movies or shows.  They only time my mom ever told us to not watch something was one random day when South Park was on!

I was crazing ceviche so my sister and I met up with friends at the Wellington Food Truck Invasion again last Thursday.  We got there early and got THE BEST parking spot!!!  Had to take pics of course!

Roscoe got in the car and immediately made my sister's lap his seat!
Any one feel like they hit the jackpot when
they get an awesome parking spot!
Because we got there just before the crowds, the lines were nonexistent!  So we hauled our food back to the car and had ourselves a little tailgate party waiting for our friends.

Roscoe being such a good boy waiting for some food.

It certainly was a chilly night but all the eating and catching up with friends took our minds off the cold.  The food was great (as usual) and we went home happy with full stomachs. 

Bulgogi Burger from International Classic Cuisine.
The bomb dot com.
Vinnie's Famous' Wiz Wit from Tree House Truck.

Pescados Unidos's crab taquitos - the avocados make it delicious!

Fried Mac n' Cheese balls = the true amazeballs!
Thank you, Miami Press!
Key Lime, Strawberry Bliss, & Orange Blossom.

So I was craving the same cupcakes from Dolce Gourmet Cupcakes.  The didn't have the Mango or Guava cupcakes I had last time but these were just as delicious!

Needless to say we are STiLL running off our fantastic food night!

If you were stuck on an island what are the two material items you would want to have?
My laptop (with wifi, lol) & a blanket.  I've been known to get cold even when the rest of the world is hot!

What are two TV shows you’d watch over and over
This one is difficult as I loooooove TV!  Game of Thrones and Parks & Recreation.  One of them I watch over and over again since I miss so much in the accents and the other I watch over and over again because I'll notice different subtle comedic moments every single time!  {Others that I'm pretty into:  The Following, The New Girl, Homeland, The Mindy Project, The Walking Dead, & Modern Family}

I saw this on Pinterest and been doing it for the last few weeks!

If your house was on fire what two things aside from family, pets, etc would you grab?
A box of flashdrives that has all of our pictures converted to digital files & whatever purse I'm currently using that has my wallet, phone, etc.

What are your two most favorite articles of clothing?
Any of my Toms (do shoes count?) & a pair of Nike sweats (my go to's for lounging!).

Follow me on Instagram!


What two movies that you saw in the past year would you recommend to us?
This is a bit of a toughie - I'm terrible with remembering movies.  We don't go to the theaters often but we do RedBox a lot.  When watching at home, I'm almost always multi-tasking so not much sticks.  If I had to try and pick two from the last year, I would recommend:  The 5-Year Engagement (rent) & Le Miserables (theaters).

What are your two biggest guilty pleasures?
Bravo TV & wasting hours on Pinterest!!

I am pretty proud of myself for not getting carried away with beauty shopping!  I'm sure most of you girls out there have an embarrassingly (not to mention unnecessarily) gigantic beauty collection!  In 2013, I've decided to try to work on rediscovering some gems that get lost in the shuffle.  Also, to really find products that work for me.  So it's not necessarily about buying less but instead, really being more conscious of what I do buy. 

So onto the haul!
