happy love day!

First of all, I'm happy to announce that Paula, one of my favorite bloggers, is the winner of the $35 CSN gift code :) Please email me at and I'll forward the information to you, Paula. Happy shopping! And everyone else, thank you so much for taking part. I'm glad to know we all have our quirks.

I haven't a lover, so I considered today as a reminder to show love in being a better friend, sister, and daughter. To especially be a better lover to myself. I really am too hard on myself and that's what much of the self abuse in compulsive overeating and binging is all about.

I know there are people who say that it's silly to have a day dedicated to love, but I see it as a reminder since it's so easy to forget.

In other news, I'm off blogging for the rest of the week. Much to do/think about!

But here's me and Julieta because Toot tagged me to answer this vlog questionnaire. Please see Toot answer the questions herself because she's so adorable and funny. I loveeee Toot. Oh, and see Ro answer the questions, too. She is a riot!

So we did three videos because of recording issues and even still we didn't finish all the questions! I'm tagging Anne, Chris, Paula, Christie, Jayme, Melissa, Erin, Jenn, Lisa, Jin, Candace, Thirteenlbs, and [insert yourself here if you wanna take part!] I love getting to know about all of you! But it's okay if you'd prefer not to take part or if you'd prefer to answer the questions by typing them out instead of recording a video. It's all good (I don't really say this in real life, but cool people who apparently haven't a fret in the world say it so I'm borrowing.)

Here are the questions:

25 Question Tag:
1. Do you have any pets? 
2. Name 3 things that are physically close to you. 
3. What's the weather like right now? 
4. Do you drive? If so have you crashed?

6. When was the last time you showered?

10. Have you ever been to a different country?

12. Where do you buy your groceries? 
13. Have you ever taken medication to help you fall asleep faster? 
14. How many siblings do you have? 
15. Do you have a desktop computer or a laptop? 
16. How old will you be turning on your next birthday? 
17. Do you wear contacts or glasses? 
18. Do you color your hair? 
19. Tell me something you are planning to do today. 
20. When was the last time you cried? 
21. What is your perfect pizza topping? 
22. Which do you prefer-hamburgers or cheeseburgers? 
23. Have you ever had an all-nighter? 
24. What is your eye color? 
25. Can you taste the difference between Pepsi and Coke? 

See you on the weekend,

PS -- So apparently the camera not only adds ten pounds, but also makes my skin appear even worse than I believed!
PPS--See that thing on my head? It's a piece of cloth I found in my house that has totally changed my life. My mother is so confused and Julieta innocently said I look like the Chiquita banana lady. Obviously, because I am tacky I took it as a compliment.
PPPS--What else can I add here? Oh yes...Chipotle I am willing to advertise for you, to even be your Jared..por favor and you only have to pay me in food? I ain't even playing...

I thought I posted my comment on your post yesterday :( I don't know what happened. I loved your responses!!! Brian said I was mesmorized by your voice, lol. Really I was though, but he's just jealous because he doesn't have a great speaking voice! Loves it!!!

Julieta, I had chickens in my backyard too except my neighbor's dog got a hold of a couple of my chickens. Very sad. I kinda think you're right--having chickens in your back yard is a hispanic thing.
