Day 29 of 30:

Something You Could Never Get Tired Of Doing

Although I don't take them as often as I like... one my absolute favorite things is taking a bubble bath with a glass of champaign in my hand. It is so relaxing, I could sit in a tub until I get all wrinkly :) There is no way I could ever get tired of a nice, hot bubble bath...

A Picture Of You Last Year and Now and How Have You Changed?

Last year: March 2010 This Year: March 2011:

How have I changed?? I feel like I look pretty much the same... even with me transitioning from my Mid 20's to my Upper 20's (oh my!). My hair might be a little darker and longer, but that would be the only physical thing that has changed.

I feel like I am in a much better place in my life than I was a year ago from now. Everything seems to be working out for me and falling in line. It is kind of scaring me because I typically don't have good luck - at all, and yet I feel like I have been showered with good luck recently. The reason? I truly believe in the power of prayer. I pray a lot more and ask for God's advice and guidance almost on a daily basis. I have also been keeping up with my journal which has proven to be a great outlet for myself. So much can change so quickly, that I wonder what I would be writing about myself in March 2012... only time will tell!!

What's in your Purse.

Here it is all laid out.... So what the heck is in there??
Lysol Spray
Hand Sanitizer
Deodorant - hey, I tan after work!
Sunglasses - I can't go outside without them
Hair Brush
Wallet - Coach of course :)
Planner - would be lost without it!
Keys - on an adorable key chain!
Medicine Bottle with a variety of different pills
Eye Drops (of course)
Lipstick/Lip gloss - I like choices
Powder - for touch-ups
4 packs of gum - Can you tell I like Orbit??
Toothpick - I'm prepared!
Camera - In a Coach case, no doubt
So there you go - the contents in my purse at all times... I know that one was SUPER interesting to all of you! haha

Day 24:
A Photo of Something that Means A Lot to You.

This photo is of me and my friend, Ashley. This July will make 2 years since she passed away from a tragic accident. Ashley truly lived life to the fullest, never met a stranger, and I can't think of a single time I hung out with her that I wasn't cracking up laughing the whole time.
This photo was taken the night we were celebrating Match Day for her husband and his Med School friends. We knew everyone was completing their residency all over the country, so we lived it up that night - it was a bitter sweet celebration... No doubt about it, Ashley, you are missed...

Vito Kisses:

My Precious Niece, Karys

(she asked me to take her picture this day because she told me she looked fantastic).

My adorable and oh-so-sweet nephew, Blake
The thought of seeing this in person soon.... Hogwarts Castle

It's hard to narrow it down to just a few things... So many things make me happy... But these were just the few that came into my mind first...

Day 20:
The Meaning Behind Your Blog Name.

Clumsy Me, Oddity.

Clumsy Me - I am so incredibly clumsy. I fall, trip, knock over things, etc all the time. I can't even get embarrassed about it anymore because it happens so often. And not just in heels. It happens if I am in tennis shoes, flip flops, or stilettos!

Oddity - This is a name my older sister created to describe me because she said I was odd. She would always call me her Little Oddity, and being that she was the one that got me started on blogging, I thought it was a nice touch.
Stephanie helped me brainstorm ideas on it. We would send emails back and forth until we were both satisfied :) For my birthday present that year, she bought me a personalized header. I knew I wanted a coffee, shopping, and Vito to be included :) I love it!

Something You Crave A Lot.

I know this is strange... but I crave raw noodles. I could eat an entire pack of raw spaghetti if I didn't make myself stop! I don't know what it is, but I love them...

Day 16:
Your Celebrity Crush:
I have a quite a few, but if I had to pick... Gerard Butler. OMG - he is hot, funny, quirky, the entire package! He can play a serious role, like PS I Love You, a romantic comedy like Life as We Know It, and even guys respect him because of 300. He is gorgeous and that accent? Yum! I am a total sucker for the accent...

Day 15:
Something You Don't Leave the House Without
This one was easy - Without a doubt - my iPhone4. I think I would go crazy without it! Not only do I not leave the house with it, but it is usually in every single room I am in as well. I am in love with my phone....

Day 14:
A TV Show You're Currently Addicted To.

Vampire Diaries and Pretty Little Liars. I cannot get enough of them!

Vampire Diaries has some very nice eye candy to add to the enjoyment of the show - plus I love vampires! The story lines are great - I hated the books, but luckily the show doesn't follow them. Probably the only book series I did not like... But the show? Love!Pretty Little Liars is a hybrid of Gossip Girl and Desperate Housewives. It always leaves you hanging and I always want to know what 'A' is going to do next! What made me interested in the show was the main girl, Lucy Hale. She is gorgeous and was on the show Privileged, which I really liked but was canceled. When I saw she was staring in a new show, I had to check it out. So glad I did! There isn't a storyline that I have been bored of yet!

Day 13 of 30

Day 13:
Your Favorite Musician and Why?

Right now, hands down - Taylor Swift.
The songs she writes about love, happiness, break ups, sadness, regret, etc - I can relate to almost all of them. I love the way she writes and puts her emotions in her songs. She also has no shame or sympathy for ex-boyfriends or guys that have treated her badly. What girl hasn't wanted to call out a guy that has done them wrong?!?! I know I have. A lot.

My favorites include Haunted, Breathe, Sparks Fly, well all of them really... Plus, who else plays on such a sparkley guitar?!?!

Day 12:
A Photograph of the Town You Live In.

I was raised in Katy, went away to school for a year in Lubbock, lived in the city for about 1.5 yrs, and then moved back to the burbs.... I love Katy - some refer to it as my 'bubble' but I don't care. Katy is my home :)

Day 11:
What's in your Makeup Bag?
I used to use a really pretty Victoria Secrets Box that would double as a decorative piece in my bathroom, as well as hide my makeup... but the box has seen the end of it's days now, and to replace it is this cute little bag I received as a Christmas gift. It has an 'R' initial on the front

Inside you will find a mixture of Smashbox, Mary Kay, Loreal, a couple makeup brushes, toothpaste, toothbrush, eye drops, and a bottle of perfume. Not all that interesting...

Day 10:
A Photo of Your Favorite Place to Eat.
This was easy - This is by far my favorite restaurant! I do not go here often, as it is quite pricey but you can't find better food. You don't even need a knife to cut your steak. It's as if it melts in your mouth! So yummy!!

And if the steak hasn't won you over, just wait until you taste this little piece of heaven!
They have the BEST Tres Leches Cake I have ever tasted! If you have a special occasion coming up, you can buy a cake from them - which I have done and it was just as delicious as it was in the restaurant.... now I am craving some Churrasco's!

Day 9:
A Photo of the Last Item You Purchased

I am in love with my recent purchase.... To celebrate my recent bonus, I convinced my sister to go into the new Coach Store by us... Coach has been my weakness for quite some time now...
Just look at this summer time beauty!
Would you like a Close-Up??

The inside is just as pretty!!!

Then at the check-out, I saw this adorable yet very functional key chain and had to have it as well. See how perfect it is for when you valet your car, or don't want to carry all your keys?? Love!

Whoever said money can't buy happiness obviously has never been shopping with me in a Coach Store - I cannot help but smile and be giddy - and I still smile every time I see it - and the whole time I was writing this post... ahhh, I love Coach :)

Day 8:
A song to match your mood.

I'm seeing Rascal Flatts at the Rodeo tonight, so I think its only fitting that I chose one of their songs...

I chose 'Why Wait' because it's a fun, catchy song and the idea behind it is entertaining... I've been told I'm a spontaneous, fun, and a little crazy kinda girl - so it makes sense for me to love this song :) and I could totally see myself doing it!

If you don't know it, look up the lyrics, or better yet - listen to a preview on iTunes - I bet it will make you want to buy it!!!

Hope they play it at the Rodeo Tonight!!

Day 7 of 30

Day 7:
Your Dream Wedding.

I have two - one that I know I cannot have because my family would be too offended, and one that I would love to have.

Dream Wedding #1 (the one my family would hate): Getting married to the man of my dreams/best friend barefoot on a beautiful beach in Italy with only a few witnesses... something small and intimate. I'd get to skip the stress of planning, and I would already be in the ideal spot for my honeymoon!

But back to reality (and Katy).... There are two venues that I absolutely love. I'd like an outside ceremony with an indoor/outdoor reception. One venue has a Tuscany feel to it, which would be perfect for my family. The other has a very homey feel to it as it's a beautiful plantation home located on many acres of land. It reminds me of a true southern wedding - Gone With the Wind Style! Of course all my friends and family are there, lots of dancing, delicious cake, my little sister catching the bouquet, all the traditions, etc. And of course, a honeymoon to follow in Italy...

Day 6 of 30

Day 6:
A photo of an animal you'd love to keep as a pet.

I am sure this is supposed to be about an exotic animal, but instead I decided to post a picture of the next dog I would love to get. I will not be getting one anytime soon because Vito would kill me (or the new puppy), they are very expensive, and I don't have the lifestyle to have two dogs alone... but eventually, if I do own another dog, this is what I would love to have...

Introducing - a Puggle!!!

A puggle is a mix between a Beagle and a Pug. How precious are they?!?!?!

I mean, look at that sweet face!!!!

Like I said, no time soon - but maybe eventually.

Day 4:
Your favorite photograph of your best friend

Well I have 2 best friends... My sister, Stephanie, and my long-time friend, Kara. So here is one of each :) I decided to let them send me a picture, so these are the two photos from them:
With Stephanie at our company Chirstmas Party/My Birthday Celebration.
With Kara in Vegas (the only time I have ever been!) - we had a blast on this vacation!!

Day 3 of 30

Day 3:
Your idea of the perfect first date.

I'd love for a guy to show up on a white horse, sweep me off my feet, and ride into the sunset together.... oh wait... that only happens in fairy tales...

Back to reality!

First dates are always nerve racking for me, so someone who makes me comfortable with and carries on good conversation would be ideal. I'd like to go to go grab dinner at a romantic restaurant and then go to a wine bar afterwards because we just aren't ready to call it a night. Probably stay there drinking wine and talking until the place closed down. The 'perfect' part would not be where we went, but the feeling. There would be lots of smiling, laughter, chemistry, and a shared connection. He would end the night with a kiss, and I'd feel that spark and the butterflies in my stomach :) (can you tell I'm a hopeless romantic??)

Day 2 of 30

Day 2:
A photo of something you ate today:

I will start by saying this is my least favorite day from this challenge... I doubt that any of you care what I had for breakfast... but here ya go!

It's Egg, Cheese, and Bacon on an English Muffin. I needed something greasy after drinking yummy martini's last night! This is not my usual breakfast, but this is day 2 of the challenge! Of course my breakfast would not be complete without a large cup of coffee - in case you were wondering, it's hazelnut flavored :)

Happy Friday!!

Day 1 of 30

Day One:
A photo of yourself and a description of how your day was.

Today I woke up in a very good mood. Maybe because I had dinner with a couple friends last night, and then met up with a different friend afterwards (and during the work week! gasp!).

The drive coming into work this morning was awful with the fog being so thick!! When I got to work, I had a hilarious series of emails from my friends that made me laugh out loud! Having 2 cups of coffee made my morning :) For lunch, the deli was serving my all-time favorite lunch special - taco salad! Yum!!! This evening I am going home, folding some laundry (so glamorous), painting my nails, and then meeting up with a new friend for drinks.

Work was pretty busy, which is good. I'm excited/anxious/nervous today because I know I have a lot of things happening in the next couple of days. All in all, it's been a pretty normal day... Maybe I should have started the challenge on a different day so you would have something more interesting to read!

Hope you all have a great Thursday!
