  1. Gurrrrrl, you're my fave and gracias for the nomination! :) After reading this post I NEED to see your tattoo, I NEED to know your man's "personal brand" (tell me he's a male stripper) and I need to move with you to a costa rican jungle tree house so we can be on house hunters.

  2. I wanna come with Tami and move to Costa Rica.

    ALSO NC ISN'T EVEN THAT FAR. (kinda) let's be friends

  3. sweatpants is my color too, girl.

  4. hahah your answers (per usual) cracked me up! And I am pretty sure if you move to California you can make that FOUR good friends you met on the internet. Because I am pretty sure I would try and make you my BFF.
    House Hunters is the bane of my existence! Living in the Bay Area 1,200 sq. ft. homes START at around $500,000 - and that is for a total shithole. And then I see them in Georgia (or somewhere else with crazy natural disasters) and they are all...4,000+ sq. ft. homes for like $250,000 WTF! (rant over)

  5. i mean cali is cool and all, but then there is portland. it's hipster cousin and he was cool before cool was even cool.

  6. I wish Emma Stone was my twin!! I totally used to meet boys on the internet on AIM (does that show my age?!) I would find out cute guys' screen name and play dumb by messaging them "who's this?" Then we'd go on a few bad dates. Yaaah talk about creepy.

  7. Cheese, sweat pants, Disney... yes to all of that. Also, I love Pearl Jam.

  8. Thaaaanks for the nom! (House Hunters is on as I type this, btw). Your nieces are adorable. I started blogging in hopes of finding a new BFF (weird or okay these days?). And sweatpants is totally an acceptable answer...
