Insta-Tuesday and "Me, Myself, and I"

Dress/belt:  Macy's (2011), Sweater:  Aerie (2010!), Leggings:  Old Navy, Sandals:  Target, Bracelet:  Bought off the beach in Anguilla
You can tell, by that ecstatic expression, that I was pretty thrilled about Monday.
It was a rainy, drizzly day and I prepared for it by starting out all sullen-like at 7am.
Maybe tomorrow you'll see a smile.

1) What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?  
I would definitely go back to school.  I would get a Bachelor's in American History.  Then, I would get a Masters' in Children's Literature.  And then I would teach both.  And then I would become Benjamin Gates of National Treasure.   

2) If you had only six months left to live, what would you do with the time?
I would travel anywhere and everywhere.

3) If a front page news article was written on you, what would the headline be?
"Army wife loses mind after 3 years in Alaska"  
Just kidding.  Maybe.  
Hopefully, it'd be for doing something amazing for kids.  Or maybe for discovering a hidden Native American treasure.  Scott and I both made my school's monthly newsletter last spring for this.  

4) What is your biggest pet peeve?
I wrote a whole rant about how I hate having my name spelled wrong.  

Also, I can't stand it when I see a toddler playing with an iPhone.    
Someone once said to me, "Oh wait, 'til you have a kid and you just want a moment of peace."  

Um no.  I don't think so.  You can totally hold me to that.   

(Coincidentally, it never fails to disappoint my husband when he sees that I have no games on my phone.  That's right.  NONE.  My future children are in for a boatload of fun.)

5) What is your favorite chick flick movie?
I unabashedly admit to disliking chick flicks.  I like unpredictable movies.  Usually you can tell exactly how a chick flick will end before you see the end of the preview.  And..this is weird too...I don't like movies with happy endings.  I like to be shocked (go watch The Reader).
However, there are exceptions to every rule.  
I will watch any movie with Mila Kunis.  I like Crazy Stupid Love.  And I really like Life as We Know It, because I like Katherine Heigl.    

Also linking up with Jane for Insta-Tuesday!

Come hell or high water, there will be a tropical vacation this year.  

I wanted a beer so badly last Friday.  This was as far as I got.

The kids think extra recess is for them.  Nope.  It's for me.

 Muahhaha.  I can hardly wait for the season 7 premiere next month.

Football season in Alaska is kind of nice.  I mean, I might not get every game I want to see (grrr), but the games start at 9am, 1pm, and 4pm.  Instead of 1pm, 4pm, and 8pm.  Oh, and the Superbowl?  It starts at 2:30.  I appreciate a time zone that allows to go to bed early and watch football while eating cereal in bed.



  1. Love the outfit!
    My favorite movies are depressing ones. I am a dark person, I guess.
    Hope you get that tropical vacation!

  2. KRISTINNNNN is that a steelers jersey? :(( no no no no. and to think we were becoming friends.. haha :)) i kid i kid. The outfit in the first picture is adorable..yet again..because you are adorable. :))


  3. Cute outfit! I went back to read your rant on having your name spelled wrong, I completely understand that; there are a million ways {well, like 7} to spell Allison/Allie and it gets annoying to receive cards with "Ali" written on them from people who know me! Don't even get me started about what they write on my cups at Starbucks-- it's amazing how many people think Allison should be spelled "Alicesin."

  4. Time zones are so weird - when we lived in AZ it was one hour ahead of us now, and Mel would hate that he'd fall asleep before the end of the football game. Sometimes I love that NY gets all the late stuff and we west coasters (and farther westers) can go to bed early. :)

  5. Cute outfit!

    Lucky, I miss living in CA for football season. Here in NC the games are ridiculously late.

  6. Superbow starts at 2:30 I WISH!

  7. Katherine Heigl is amazing! I love her. :)

  15. It was always a little awkward for me to start drinking beer at 9 o'clock in the morning, but I made it work ;) Can't watch football without having a beer or 3....except when you're pregnant (wah, wah)
