50 Shades of Grey & I've Been Tagged....;)

Is anyone else out there reading "50 Shades of Grey" by E.L. James?

I started it last week and I'm on Chapter 15 right now. This is down right the filthiest piece of literature I've ever laid eyes on...... but I can't get enough of it! 
Seriously....you will feel like you need to open the windows and get some fresh air after each chapter....it's THAT filthy! 

There are discussions swirling around about turning this into a movie or an HBO series. 
I wonder who would play Christian Grey?? 
We ALL know who my vote is for....let's be serious....

Moving on....

I'm having serious writer's block today.....so I was happy to login to Blogger this morning to see my friend Laura from Under the Suburban Sun had "tagged" me in her post. 
Check out her blog if you haven't already!

Here are Laura's questions.....

1. Do you consider yourself a city or a country girl?
I'm definitely a country girl! I hate public transportation, walking long distances and rats....I could never live in the city!

2. What would your dream job be?
My dream job from when I was a kid to now has certainly changed. 20 years ago I think I would have told you I want to be a princess....today I'd like to continue working in the marketing/social media field but would love to market for some really exciting company or brand....maybe something fashion or travel related!

3. If you went shopping and could only purchase one item, what would it be?
What a great question! And a challenging one...hmmm...ummm...makeup...no....jewelry...no...SHOES! Yes definitely shoes:)

4. What is your all time favorite movie?
Its really really hard for me to pick just one. You can go ahead and laugh at me all you want but the movies I could watch over and over and never get tired of are Heavyweights, Captain Ron and Dirty Dancing:)

5. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
Always needing things to be MY WAY. Think Monica from Friends here....I like my house organized and cleaned the way I like it....no buts about it.

6. What is your absolute favorite meal?
My dad's stuffed shells. He always let me help him make them when I was a kid. It's a secret family recipe!

7. If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you would do?
Pay off my debt and pay my parents back for all of these outrageous wedding costs!

8. What would make your day?
It wouldn't take much today.....a grande vanilla iced coffee from Starbucks might do the trick! And winning that lottery we were just talking about wouldn't hurt either:)

9. How many times a week do you celebrate happy hour?
My girls and I meet every Friday night at a local restaurant for Spanish wine and Sangria - so at least once a week:)

10. What are your favorite boy and girl names?
Griffin and Avery

11. What would your dream vacation consist of and where would it be?
I've ALWAYS wanted to go to Hawaii and guess what? I'll be there in about 3 months!!! I'm so excited I can't stand it:)

Since so many of you have been tagged already, I'm going to skip tagging 11 other bloggers. I know I know I'm horrible and I'm not following the rules....but then again I rarely do:)


  1. I haven't read that book, but I'll watch ANYTHING with Ryan Gosling. :) Cute survey, I also work in Social Media Marketing. It's a FUN job, to say the least. :) I love your weekly happy hour with friends - we usually do ours monthly, and it's TONIGHT. Woot Woot

  2. You were Goose for Halloween? Me too!! haha
    And I just tried iced coffee for the first time last weekend and I'm not sure how I feel about it. I got the caramel macchiato and I kept getting caramel syrup in my straw. kind of gross. but the vanilla sounds like it would be good.

    and I'm so jealous you get to go to Hawaii so soon! You're gonna have so much fun!! :)

  3. I JUST added that series to my "to-read" book list on Goodreads! I'm always on the lookout for something different than the run-of-the mill books. lol And it sounds like it's just that! hahaha

  4. I need to need that book! Everyone keeps talking about it and obviously I don't know anything about it but Ryan Gosling in anything is always good :)

  5. i JUST finished all three books last night.
    that's how sucked into it i was.
    I have Christian pegged for Matt Bomer from White Collar.
    Google him :)

  6. I think you and I would be such good friends IRL! I am 100% Monica from Friends and I can't stop my controlling ways! And I also love iced vanilla coffee. :)
    I've heard lots about this book lately so maybe I need to check it out.

  7. I just reserved it from the library...can't wait!!

  8. I was tempted to buy it the other day and since I keep hearing all of these good things, I may just have to now!

  9. Ooo that book sounds pretty interesting. And if it turns into an HBO show, and has Ryan Gosling in it, it'll be a must-watch for me. Because I watch anything with him in it! Lol. And who wouldn't want to win the lottery? There's a big one going on here in CA right now, I need to buy a ticket! Haha. ;)

  10. I just read about this book on people.com and now feel like I have to read it! It seems like a huge hit.


  11. i love getta know ya post.

    i am so jealous that you're going to hawaii. i have also wanted to go, too, for the longest time. it is definitely on my bucket list.
    and i LOVE the name avery. always have, always will.

    mmmm now i want some starbucks like pronto! seriously starbucks can definitely turn a crappy day into a wonderful one!

  12. bahaha- ive been trying to get my hands on the book because EVERYONE in my lib. classes are talking about how RIDICULOUS and CRAZY it is- clearly a porno novel...yet so many people continue to read it!! But heyyyy if its a show and R Gosling is in it--- you bet i'm watching it!!

  13. I've been reading a ton about this book!!! IT's on my TO READ good reads list!!! :)

  14. Thank you so much for answering S! Ok, I have not heard about that book but I am almost done with the one I am reading, so because you recommended it that is going to be my next kindle purchase.
    I thought sure you would say you are a city girl! Being a "Monica" is not a bad thing! If you need a personal maid to take to Hawaii I am available. I will sleep on the beach.

  15. I just finished all 3 of the fifty shades books!! They were so dirty but I could not put them down! The second two have a lot more plot than the first one.

  16. Shut up! (Found you from Stilettos and a Fishing Pole) ... I keep hearing about 50 Shades of Gray, but went to order it and Amazon said it's not in print in the US until April 3?!?! WTH? (I don't do Kindle/Nook - I like to read real books) ... thankfully, April 3 is tomorrow. Can't wait!


Thanks for leaving some love:) You just made my day!
