I've been Tagged!

Hi bloggers! I hope you are having a wonderful week and looking forward to the upcoming weekend. There's something about a patriotic holiday that puts me in good spirits! I have been tagged in a blog game by the sweet Sincerely Shannon and I am looking forward to playing.

1.What’s your staple meal (ie. what meal do you cook most often when you can’t be bothered to be adventurous)?
Breakfast for dinner is the easiest back up. We always have eggs, some sort of meat, grits, and biscuits. I don't make gravy because it would take up too much time, but this is a meal that Jonathan can easily step in and help me so we can eat quick!

2. What do you want to be when you grow up?
When I grow up... I want to be a mom. I know that is probably not the typical answer, but I already have a job in sales. What I really want to add under my "jobs" would be motherhood. This isn't in the works for anytime soon, but it something I would like to be and I think it is a very important role.

3. What book are you reading at the moment (if any)?
Don't laugh, but I am reading the first of the "True Blood" series that starts with Sookie Stackhouse. I think they are a fun break from reality. And yes I have all of the Twilight saga too, so there! haha

4. How do you relax?
I love to sit down and play with Dax. There's something about playing with him and making him happy that seems to calm me down and ease my stresses. Spending time with him gives me such joy and he makes Jonathan and I laugh.

5. What color are the interior walls of your home?
Aqua Smoke, Java, Meadow Green, kahki, and some light blue color in the basement that I didn't pick out. Most the colors were in the house when we bought it, but we had to change the kitchen. It was painted yellow and was not very calming for Jonathan, so came the auqa smoke. {He can't stand yellow rooms.} Is this a guy thing, beause I love it!

6. What is your guiltiest pleasure?
Grande non-fat mocha and going to Hobby Lobby. I could easily spend hours in that place walking up and down the aisles listening to the calm music they play. I love going in there to get inspired and seeing what products are 50%. It's not unique or original in anyway, but I get so pumped to being around crafts and home decor. It's Candy Land for me!

7.What time is bedtime and getting up time?
I would say 10:00, but I'd be lying. I am brushing my teeth at 9:15 and jumping into bed by 9:20. I am such a crab if I don't get a lot of sleep. I am rudely awaken by my alarm at 6:15 am.

8. How long do you spend reading blogs (per day or per week)?
Honestly, I probably spend 30+ minutes a day reading them. I wish it was more but I have to work. I love seeing what my fellow bloggers are up to and getting inspired by them!

Okay, it's time for me to tag people and I would love to hear from Flick at Everyday Chic and Julianne at From the Beginning. Good luck ladies!
