me, myself and i {#3}

1. When you’re feeling down, what do you do to pick yourself up?

Ahhh, let’s see. Blast ‘N Sync music, call my mom, watch any Real Housewives season/episode {this never fails to make me feel better about life}, snuggle with my stinky puppy, consume an entire bag of Pirate’s Booty {you’ll never be the same after trying it}, paint my nails an obnoxious color {sparkles are a must}, buy an overpriced but delicious cupcake at a fun bakery… the list goes on! And if I’m still feeling down and cranky after doing all the aforementioned activities, a little wine and a nap always does the trick — as long as I don’t wake up even more tired than before {then the husband better run}! Don’t you hate that?
2. If you had to live in a different time period which would you prefer?
I’m a little obsessed with the show Pan Am {it was cancelled! Whaaa!}} so I’d have to say the 1960’s – 1970’s. I want to be a flight attendant with a sleek outfit and hairstyle that doesn’t move, jetting around the world. Actually, now that I think about it, I’m fine with this time period. The flight attendants on the show had to do regular weigh-ins and appearance checks and let’s be serious, I’d fail both. I’m perfectly happy unbuttoning my jeans after a big sushi meal, and not having to shower every day. And who would want to wear a girdle under clothes? Ugh.
Buuut… Bring back Pan Am!
3. What is the most creative Halloween costume you’ve ever worn?
I dress up for Halloween almost every year so I’ve done the cop, the ladybug, the nurse, and others — but the most creative costumes were the ones my mom dressed me up in when I was younger. I remember being a full-blown witch one year with a fake nose, warts, long black nails, and a painted green face; that was pretty cool. And then one year my mom actually made me a purple genie costume. 
4. Five weird things about you we wouldn’t know without being told?
Not that weird but I enjoy Broadway Musicals way too much. I’ve been to Wicked a few times {my favorite}, Chicago, Hairspray, the Lion King, Mamma Mia, and a few more I can’t think of right now. They’re entertaining, fun and the singing is out of this world! Luckily, my husband likes them, too!
I put Ranch dressing on everything. I could NOT find it anywhere in Scotland, even though I searched multiple grocery stores, so my mom actually shipped me a few bottles.
One of my eyes twitches every week. I think it’s pretty annoying. 
I always smell my food before eating it. I’m not sure why, but I’ve done this forever.
Right now, I stress myself out while driving and worry way too much. I only tried driving in the UK a few times {I almost jumped a curb and killed us}, but I’m still worried I’ll drive on the wrong side of the road in the States. Driving shouldn’t be this much of a production, but it is for me every time I decide to get behind the wheel and I seriously have to pump myself up for it!
5. What would you tell your 16-year-old self?
Stop being so sassy and listen to your mother!

    Found you via the MMI link up and even though you’re an N*Sync fan, I had to stop by and tell you what a pretty layout you have! :) Also, I have no qualms with unbuttoning my pants after sushi either, I mean WHO doesn’t? I also love me some ranch. Mmmm.
