4. Do you have a crush? One of my crushes just won American Idol....I love Lee! And, of course,t forget "the list"! You know, if I ever run into them... Game on! But, I'm in the process of updating that list, ha ha!

5. Are you tatted? Nope, but I love looking at tatoos on people! My two sisters want to get identical ones on the three of us so eventually I will have one..... Any suggestions where?

6. Wal-mart or Target? I loooove me some Target! I cannot walk into that store without buying something!

7. Something random Bout me,,,I've got a big smile, sweet personality but a baaaaaad temper!

8. In which era do you belong? I love looking at photos of the beautiful fun style of the twenties! Fashion-wise, those gals rocked it. But I am and always will be a child of the 80s! The music, the fashion and artistic freedom that seemed to explode set the stage for present day culture (at least in the US).

9. First kiss,,Oh....sweet guy.....baaaaad kiss. Slobber central all over my face! NOT like I imagined it was gonna be.

1 - where do you live?? ~ In a house! LOL, seriously, I live in a suburb of St.Louis, MO.

2 - favorite etsy shop?? ~ Pink Ninja Addicts, Thrifted Finds and Dirty Laundry There are so many to choose from.... these are my absolute favorites!

3 - what did you do last night?? ~ Last night was an AWESOME night! My boyfriend and I ordered Qdoba and ate it while watching Mad Men! LOVE!

4 - do you have a crush?? we wanna know more,,, ~ Kevin Spacey.... by now, many on the internet know this.... I'm not ashamed! I've loved him since Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. Yummy!!! Oh, and Bruce Springsteen..... oh my that man could sing me to sleep every night!! I do like older men if you haven't noticed.... hehe ;) ;) ;)

5 - are you tatted?? if yes, share,,, ~ Yuppers!! I have two tats.... a dragonfly on my ankle and a lower back (AKA tramp stamp) one of a butterfly with tribal designs on each side of it. I plan on getting more for sure! They are so addicting! I also have two piercings that aren't visible to anyone..... you figure it out! ;) ;)

6 - wal-mart or target?? ~ Target!!! At least for their clothes, purses, panties, bras, shoes and makeup. Wal-Mart works for most other things. I like the Target near me much better than the Wal-Mart. The clerks are much nicer there as well.

7 - tell me something random about yourself ~ Secretly I am obsessed with politics. I only recently voted for the first time in my life believe it or not! I check out books from the library on politics and the various elections in the past. I also subscribe to several blogs, RSS feeds, etc. My boyfriend checks out the books for me, because I don't want my friends to know how obsessed I really am!!

8 - in which era do you belong?? ~ LOL, every quiz I ever have taken on this puts me in the 1970's.... I can totally see this too!!!

9 - first kiss?? ~ Wish I could say it was good... it wasn't. He wasn't any good to me, but then again, I doubt he thought I was any better! Luckily he was my best friend, so he probably didn't care! Neither one of us knew what to do with our tongues, and I swear I have teeth that still bear the chips from us bumping teeth! Ouch!

1 - where do you live?? Gilbert, Arizona

2 - favorite etsy shop?? Ninja Addicts, of course! And Design By Diana.

3 - what did you do last night?? ummm...same old weeknight ritual getting the kids fed, bathed, read to, and into bed. then i watched glee for the first time ever. got room in the viewing schedule now that lost is over.

4 - do you have a crush?? we wanna know more,,, after 20 years i still think the hubs is a hottie. top of my celebrity "freebie" list is taye diggs, has been ever since he was in "how stella got her groove back". and i'm getting to get to be a diry old lady. a couple of the boys from "big time rush" are eyebrow-poppers and damn! taylor lautner makes me all gooey. i'm still team edward on paper but team jacob on the big screen. mm mm good.

5 - are you tatted?? if yes, share,,, i have a crescent moon with a kanji for "strength" on my bicep. even though the two things make one tattoo the image meanings are mutually exclusive. someday when i have disposable income again i plan on a few more.

6 - wal-mart or target?? target all the way!!!!! i love that little dog Bullseye!!!!!

7 - tell me something random about yourself - i'm a control freak when it comes to driving. i must drive. i'm ambidextrous (although since i don't practice writing with my left hand, the handwriting's legible but ugly. i can do most other things with both hands, though). i can say the abc's just as fast backwards as forwards. (and no, i didn't learn it for sobriety tests!) so would that be my zyx's? i'm double jointed and very bendy (channeling phoebe here). i can bend my thumb BACK to touch the top of my wrist. i once had a personal trainer convinced there was something wrong with his flexibility test because i tested so flexible. i'm just as *&#!%$@ salty as any sailor out there!

8 - in which era do you belong?? the end of the 60s. it was ok to be a strong woman while staying home with the kids.

9 - first kiss?? the best feeling there is. eye-closing, breath-catching, stomach-swooping bliss. wish i could get another one.

2 - favorite etsy shop?? dirty laundry and thrifted finds

3 - what did you do last night?? We went out of town to visit my husband's side of the family. Had dinner and then played with my nieces and nephew.

4 - do you have a crush?? we wanna know more,,, Of course! My hubby S. is BEAUTIFUL!! Black hair, green eyes, long eyelashes, olive skin..... *bliss* =) As far as "celebrity crush" always have to go with Brad Pitt. It's been on going since 6th grade hahaha

5 - are you tatted?? if yes, share,,, Yes, I have a large tribal on my back that I drew up myself. There will be many more to come.

6 - wal-mart or target?? Well.... I like target but we don't have any near by so we end up at wal mart alot.

7 - tell me something random about yourself. I'm the queen of weird random things lol. When I asked S this question he couldn't even pick just one, so here's a few.... I turn on the washing machine for noise because I can't stand silence, I gave birth naturally, I have a scar on my leg from a car window exploding, I'm half Mexican(even though I don't look like it and very few believe it) I would rather be barefoot even though I'm obsessed with shoes( told you I was a Cali girl =)

6 - wal-mart or target?? Oh, definitely Target!!!

7 - tell me something random about yourself I'm a vegetarian...I once had to have stitches after getting bitten on the ankle by a dolphin...I got arrested in Germany for speeding on the Autobahn (that whole thing about no speed limits is a little misleading)...

8 - in which era do you belong?? This one. Not sure if how I would do without the a/c, car, scrap supplies, internet, etc.

9 - first kiss?? OK, I was 5 yrs old, in kindergarten and crushing on this guy named Joe. So, at recess, I walked up to him and kissed him smack on the lips. Well, apparently he was still in his "girls are icky" phase (boys are so immature) and he told the teacher on me. I got in trouble! My crush was SO over.

1 - where do you live?? I live and love in Alberta, Canada

2 - favorite etsy shop?? sweetfindings4you

3 - what did you do last night?? had a nice glass of wine with a dear friend of mine, we talked about the stupid things that we did in our past and laughed til we cried.

6 - wal-mart or target?? I don't have Targets around where I live, I wish... so Walmart it is.

7 - tell me something random about yourself. I have a thing for bees, I love them. They make me very happy.

8 - in which era do you belong?? This one is easy. 1950's all the way!!!

9 - first kiss?? ICK, It was grade nine, Christmas dance and there was this boy named Sean that walked right over to me and pretty much slimed my face. I hid in the girls locker room all night after that, because I was scared he was going to do it again. The worst kiss ever.

1. where do you live??,, I live in Anderson, Indiana. I was actually born and raised here, left the state to study architecture at college, and came back a year later to marry my husband.

2. favorite etsy shop??,,Two of my favorite etsy shops where I like to go for inspiration are: KelleyStreetVintage, VintageJane and mine if I ever get it up and running!!

3. what did you do last night?,,Last night my hubby made burgers on the grill and then we started painting the living room after the kiddos went to bed.

4. do you have a crush??,,we wanna know more,, I have a crush on my hubby when I actually get time to stop and notice him and those green eyes!! LOVE those eyes! But, as far as like a celebrity crush, I'd have to say Channing Tatum...yummy!

5. are you tatted?,,if yes, share,,I have two tattoos right is a butterfly and it's on my hip bone. I got that one when I first came home from college and got engaged and my hubby and I went to both get tattoos together...very sweet! :) My second one is a butterfly and flowers ankle bracelet around my left ankle and I really LOVE's very swirly and pretty and it's just perfect for me! I'm actually planning my third right now but it may be a little while until I actually get it because I have to plan out the perfect tattoo!

6. wal-mart or target?,, I love Target and all of their products the best, but I usually end up at Wal-Mart for their prices and groceries.

7. tell me something random about yourself,,,Hmmmmm, let me see.........maybe that I'm actually thrilled that I never finished architecture because although you get to be incredibly creative in school, you don't actually get to apply any of that creativity on the job!

8. what era do you belong in?,,,I think that I'd totally be happy in theearly 60's....housewives, cute aprons,small town living, no chain stores,records, soda shops, the list goes on and on!!

9. first kiss,,, My first kiss was when I was a seventh grader and I was at my first boy/girl party at a friends house. An eighth grade boy that I didn't really like, but I didn't dislike him either, had been talking to me most of the night and without warning just leaned in and kissed me!! All I saw were two lips heading straight for me with no time to react...but hey, that's why we all look back and laugh, right?! :)

1 - where do you live??I live in The Lone Star State a.k.a. Texas but am originally from lil' ol' Hawaii.

2 - favorite etsy shop??2M2M = too many to mention

3 - what did you do last night??

I watched my 11-year old daughter perform a Tahitian dance with her Hula Halau for a Hawaiian Restaurant's Grand Opening. It was awesome!

4 - do you have a crush?? we wanna know more,,,

Hmm.....I'm married so the only legal crush I can have would be for my husband. I can honestly say that I still get butterflies when he looks at me with those googly eyes. Off the record.....I have been crushing over Actor Josh Hartnett since I was a teen.

5 - are you tatted?? if yes, share,,,

Yup! I gave birth naturally 4 times because I'm afraid of needles. Yet, I have 5 tattoos. LOL They are all on my back-side though. I got my very first tat on my 18th Birthday just because I could. It's on the back of my neck and it's a small Chinese butterfly symbol. My sisters and I have an "insect nickname thing" and I am the butterfly. My 2nd tat is on my upper back and is of a butterfly with a tigers face in the wings. I also got a tramp stamp -or- a tat on my lower backside with my first borns name "Deja" above a tribal symbol. The last couple of tats I got are a bit embarrassing.....when I was younger and stupid I had an ex bf's name tatted on my married and covered it up with a full bloom rose. Yes people.....I have a big @$$ flower on my behind!

6 - wal-mart or target??

Target for fashion and Walmart for food.

7 - tell me something random about yourself

I get dizzy when I pull out white hairs from my head. I don't wanna show any signs of aging and so whenever I see these obvious signs I feel like I'm going to faint, literally!

8 - in which era do you belong??

I SO belong in the Pin-Up Girl Era!

9 - first kiss??

All I remember was these pair of lips coming at me and slobber. Ewe! Gross! It was totally unexpected and I was only 14 years old.

loves~nely & ally
