Care to tell me about yourself?


  1. It is really nice to know a bit more about you! I hate emptying the dishwasher 2 but I even hate it more to wash the dishes :p..

  2. Cute post! I love gold/silver, I'm graduating in May and I'm freaking out (kinda) about it, I need to learn how to cook/bake, I have a dog, and I'm from NY but go to school in RI.

  3. Oh this is fun. Let me see, just a few things about me:
    Favorite color, coral too!
    Movie quote, anything in the Godfather.
    Time to Wake up, 5:00 AM. I am a morning person.
    Yummy food I make, migas. It's the only thing I make well, that's why I married my husband, man can cook.

  4. fun! i really like the bill and ted quote :) haha brings back memories! xoxo jillian:: cornflake dreams

  5. I LOVE THIS!!!!!!!!!! The littel things that make us who we are!!! I love cleaning however woudl pay someone to empty the dishwasher!!! :)
