Let's get better acquainted, shall we?

I think we should play a game! You know, so we can get to know each other a little better?

Alright, so copy and paste the 4 questions below, add your answers and repost it in the comment section! Easy enough? GOOD, because you all have to do it now! :)

     1) If you HAD to change your first name, what would you change it to and why?  

     2) If you won the lottery, what would be the very first thing you would do? 

     3) What is the worst/best gift you've ever given/received?

     4) What are you wearing right now?


Here are my answers!!

1) I'd change my name to FRANKIE! There was beautiful woman, named Frankie,who worked at the hair salon I went to as a child and from then on I've always loved it! I still plan to use it if when I  have a little girl someday, as long as the future hubs agrees! :)

2) I'd start with a WHOLE new wardrobe- head to toe!- AND then I'd book a nice little getaway to the Mediterranean, I think.

3) The worst gift I've ever received was from my parents on Christmas Eve. I was 8 years old. My sister and I were allowed to open ONE present each before going to bed that night. Considering that most of the presents were average size, it was no surprise that we picked the one present that stood out from the rest. It was the most beautifully wrapped, heaviest and BIGGEST box that was under the tree and it was tagged to 'Jacy and Jenny'. Excitement oozed from our very souls as we shimmied the gynormus box away from the tree and into the center of the room.

What soon followed was not only the worst gift ever, but the most comical Christmas Eve I remember!

Picture it now: Two young girls, in their holiday jammies, hanging outside a second story widow, clutching for dear life to the metal rungs of our very own and brand new fire escape ladder!! Yes, people... twas the night before Christmas and we had a legitimate emergency evacuation drill! :) Oh, the GOOD TIMES!

4) I'm wearing this.... a red cardigan over a knitted cream flowy shirt, skinny jeans tucked into my vintage camel-colored cowboy boots (that my sister scored for .25 cents at a yard sale!) and a necklace that doesn't really gel with any of it :)

  1. You are so lovely! I get so excited to come look at your blog everyday! I also owe you the biggest email! Alright:

    1) I would change my name to Cally. I read it in a book when I was a little girl. Then I started to write stories of my own and the girls were always named Cally. So cute!

    2) If I just won the lottery... this is a hard one for me. I would invest it. Spending money makes me anxious. But I would definitely buy a nice dinner for myself before I put it all away. :)

    3) The worst gift I ever received was from "Santa." A purple fanny pack when I was 12. I hated it so much that I cried. I felt like that present had been wasted.

    4) I'm wearing a teal long-sleeve shirt, covered by a white cuddly jacket, with my skinny jeans, vintage brown belt, and brown boots. Complete with my favorite necklace - a metal ring tied around my neck with brown leather.

  3. 1) If you HAD to change your first name, what would you change it to and why?
    Hmm I've never thought of this question before. Perhaps Henrique because I am fascinated by French culture.


    2) If you won the lottery, what would be the very first thing you would do?
    The very first thing I would do is by my parents and my sister the home of their dreams :)

    3) What is the worst/best gift you've ever given/received?
    Best gift as a scrapbook of memories from someone very special in my past. The worst gift: tube socks

    4) What are you wearing right now?
    Blue dress shirt and tie with dress pants

    1. Henrique eh? Awesome! And of course you would help someone else... you are a true gentleman :)

      Remind me never to buy my man tube socks... lol

  4. 1) If you HAD to change your first name, what would you change it to and why?

    Am I lame that I've never even thought about this? I guess I'm lucky, I've liked my name most of my life. Hmm. So I guess no change to my name!

    2) If you won the lottery, what would be the very first thing you would do?

    Not tell anyone I know, and try to live the same lifestyle, as much as possible, but maybe with more clothes :) Oh, and buy Louboutins, because I've always wanted some.

    3) What is the worst/best gift you've ever given/received?

    I used to fly every week for my job, and my then-boyfriend gave me a sleep mask made out of terry cloth and an inflatable neck pillow. It was the best and worst gift all in one. I still use that inflatable neck pillow when I travel, but who wants to put a terry cloth sleeping mask on?!

    4) What are you wearing right now?

    Gray and black polka dot knit tights, a fuschia skirt, and a gray cardigan. (Writing that, it sounds like I don't match at all...)

    Thanks Jacy, that was fun!

    1. I'm so glad you commented :) I like your name too!

      Love that you had an all in one worst/best gift ever! That was pretty funny! Didn't know what Louboutins were... had to look the up... lol! Does this mean I'm non-fashion savvy? Ha!

      And you sound like you look FABULOUS!

      XOXO

    2. HAHA, oh, that boyfriend was so funny. He also brought me a single red rose that birthday, and I laughed when I opened the door. I'm like the least romantic person I know (or maybe I just wasn't in love with him, and so his romantic gesture went unappreciated.)

      Of course it doesn't mean you're non-fashion savvy, haha! I just remember the first time I saw a woman walking in a pair in NYC when I was in high school, and then I came home and googled "red soled shoes". Since then, I've always wanted a pair and now I notice them EVERYWHERE. Movies, car commercials. They even have the green M&M in a pair in one of her new commercials. :)

      XOXO

    3. At least you both can spell Louboutin, which is more than I can do :) Natali, your fuschia skirt sounds darling and sexy :)

      Delete
    4. You did it! Louboutin :)

      You know, I amend my previous post. If I win the lottery, I'm buying BOTH of you a pair too :) So, hit neimanmarcus.com and do some window shopping!

      Thanks Nora, want to hear the most embarrassing thing? When I used the restroom in the afternoon I realized it was ON BACKWARDS. Sigh.

  5. 1) If you HAD to change your first name, what would you change it to and why?
    I love my real first name. My parents weren't so cruel to name me EAT MY SCABS---ya, it's not my real name. But maybe it I had to change it "Scout" cause I love the little girl in "To Kill a Mockingbird"

    2) If you won the lottery, what would be the very first thing you would do? Fall to me knees and cry, then buy a Vespa!

    3) What is the worst/best gift you've ever given/received?
    My parents are the worst give givers. For my 25th birthday they sent a plastic baggies filled with 25 things from their junk drawer. It was filled with loose M&M's, newspaper clippings, an old pencil, a packet of instant oatmeal, paperclips etc.

    Best gift: a Louis ghost chair

    4) What are you wearing right now?
    A yellow sundress with a skinny leather belt and bare feet. It's 85 degrees here!!

  6. Wait whaaaaa? Your name isn't Scabs? Booooo... I was growing quite fond of it :) And I lufffff Scout :) And your real name too!

    2. HAHAHAHAHA this exchange totally made me laugh. I almost called you "EMS" in my reply to your comment on my blog, but I thought that sounded too much like a disease, so I didn't...seriously, though, your yellow sundress sounds so, so dreamy. Take a picture!

  7. I love games!!

    1) If you HAD to change your first name, what would you change it to and why?
    Scarlett, from Gone with the Wind. Different (as if mine isn't already) and she was such a herioine, fighter, strong willed, amazing dresses! Strong women are such a turn on!!

    2) If you won the lottery, what would be the very first thing you would do? I would make lots of donations and then travel. What a life that would be!


    3) What is the worst/best gift you've ever given/received? I love love love, when people give me great books they have read. Makes me feel special when I get something like that. :)


    4) What are you wearing right now? Black tights, running shoes, a tank, and a long sleeved danskin shirt. It's nasty chilly here in PA!!

  8. 1) If you HAD to change your first name, what would you change it to and why?

    If i had to change my name it would be Ember. I love love fall and I think Ember is such a fallish name.

    If I won the lottery the very first thing i would do is pay off all our debt

    3) What is the worst/best gift you've ever given/received?
    The worst gift i ever received was the miracle of forgiveness for my 21st birthday.. I thought my mom was trying to tell me I needed to dump my boyfriend and I was so mad. The best gift I have ever gotten was my sleeping bag from my husband. Oh I love that thing.
    4) What are you wearing right now?

  9. 1) If you HAD to change your first name, what would you change it to and why? I've never thought about it before! I've always liked the name "Madeleine" like Madeleine Stowe from The Last of the Mohicans...

    2) If you won the lottery, what would be the very first thing you would do? Pay off our student loans (my hubby is going to PT school and is almost done!), put a down payment on a house, and...go shopping (OF COURSE!). Oh can I add go to Paris? I love France. Hmm...I would have to win A LOT of money to do all that!

    3) What is the worst/best gift you've ever given/received? My parents suck at giving gifts too...when I was like 19 and just about to leave for study abroad in Paris, my mom gave me a box of her old tennis shoes with money inside because she didn't have time to get me the pink high top converse I really wanted...hello...Christmas doesn't sneak up on you, you have all year to see it coming!! The real kicker was the random calendar full of black babies...I didn't know whether to laugh or cry! It really hurt my feelings but I'm over it now :) Best gift? My husband made me a scrapbook of A-Z one time for Valentine's with pictures of us/things we've done together...it touched me so much because a) he doesn't know how to do digital scrapbooking but learned and b) it was just so thoughtful.

    4) What are you wearing right now? Jean shorts and a super cute multicolored blouse...it's 90 degrees here UGH shoot me now (I'm not fond of AZ!).

      And no more rubbing it in about the weather... lol... you and Scabs... I know it's ridiculous in the summer but I'd sure love to live there the other 3 seasons of the year :)

      I wanna see this super cute shirt! :)

    2. Air conditioning in March? No thanks. Haha. I am just bitter because I miss the four seasons. When I get a chance I'm going to take a pic of my new clothes and I'll put one on my blog :)

  10. 1) If you HAD to change your first name, what would you change it to and why?
    I would change it to Gigi or Coco. Sexy and cute.

    2) If you won the lottery, what would be the very first thing you would do?
    I would buy a house, and then invest. Boring, I know. And maybe spend a couple thousand at Anthropologie and JCrew.

    3) What is the worst/best gift you've ever given/received?
    My mom gave me a teal sweatsuit from Salvation Army when I turned sixteen. I relegated it to the pile of discards in the attic. The next year, I opened the exact. same. sweatsuit. HILARIOUS.
    Best gift? Sole legal and physical custody of my boy, courtesy of God.

    4) What are you wearing right now?
    Yellow leather and stacked wood heels, high waisted black skinny dress pants, grey turtleneck, rust colored linen blazer, long gold necklace, skinny leather belt. I feel stylin':)

    1. That is the most AWESOME worst gift ever!

      And, your outfit sounds FABULOUS! I wish I looked that cute at work. I struggle finding skinny dress pants that are a) long enough and b) flattering!

  11. Love Gigi and Coco!

    That is probably the most hilarious re-gift I've heard of.. lol.. and YES for the custody of your son! That is AMAZING!

    You do sound like you look pretty cool, Nora! I'm with Natali on the flattering part... it's the high waisted thing that doesn't work on me... lol

  12. 1) If you HAD to change your first name, what would you change it to and why?
    Emily. I think that was going to be my name, but my parents saw me and immediately named me after my aunt instead. Truthfully I like both names.


    2) If you won the lottery, what would be the very first thing you would do?
    Pay off our house. Because I'm married to Mr. Reponsible (in terms of $$ anyway...) and he'd have my head if I "wasted" it. But assuming we won an unreasonable sum of money, we'd also TRAVEL. We'd go somewhere amazing with our kids, then somewhere equally amazing without them. Hawaii? Scotland? Australia? All of the above? Yes!!!


    3) What is the worst/best gift you've ever given/received?
    Best gift ever was a CD player from "santa" after my mom had spent weeks convincing me that there was no way Santa would ever get me something so cool (expensive). A total shock.
    Worst gift ever? My MIL gives me some weird clothes - but it's all out of love...so I feel like I can't fault her for her. She means well, but I want to cry when I open a rainbows and butterfly sweater which she picked because "it just looks so much like [me]". Really? I'm a grown woman....

    4) What are you wearing right now?
    It's conference Sunday, I'm in my pajamas. Flannel pants and a pink t-shirt stained with my 2-year-old's chocoalte drool and my infant's spitup. How's that for lovely?

  13. Wow, that was fun to read everyone's answers. Who says virtual friends don't count?

    1) If you HAD to change your first name, what would you change it to and why?

    Well, I like my real name, but I did HAVE to change it for purposes of anonymity, so Jane is what I chose. Cuz I love it. So simple.

    2) If you won the lottery, what would be the very first thing you would do?

    The first thing? Take some friends to a nice restaurant.

    3) What is the worst/best gift you've ever given/received?

    Nothing can be as good as Nora's teal sweatsuit story...

    4) What are you wearing right now?

    Some coral colored pajama pants from Banana Republic [truth be told, they are the only item of clothing I own from that store but I sure felt cool saying it] and a gray t-shirt. I should have put on some real clothes before I commented.

    1. LOL Jane! Banana Republic jammies are better than what I own.. :) You can always come back and tell us what you're wearing once you've gotten ready for the day! :) but I bet you ROCK those PJ's like no other!
