  2. My birthstone is aquamarine & my astrological sign is Pisces.
  3. I have two sisters
  4. I have 2 nieces -twins-
  5. My favourite colour has changed and evolved as I aged in the following order: blue, green, babyblue, pink (hot pink, fuschia, any shade).

  9. My favourite dessert in the world is a banana-chocolate crepe
  10. I have a Chihuahua who is Mexican -literally- he was born in Mexico and I have his paperwork in Spanish.
  11. I have a boyfriend -practically my husband lol- who is Italian, by heritage, not by birth. I can read/write basic Italian - he cannot.
  12. The first movie I can remember watching and really understanding is E.T. I wanted my own E.T. to have as a friend.
  13. When I was 3/4 my sisters & cousins were die-hard New Kids on the Block fans...being the youngest, they took the rest, and left me with Jon (who has recently come out as being gay)
  14. The first thing I asked my mom when I came home from my first day of Junior Kindergarten was 'Mom, can I have a boyfriend?'
  15. My first crush in life was Jesse Katsopoulos from Full House
  16. My first real-life crush was a boy named Timothy (JK)
  17. My best friend and I became friends after I moved to a new school, and her grandparents watched me in the mornings (as my parents when to work)
  18. When we were small, we used rip the little tinsels off of christmas garland, but them in a zip-lock bag, fill it with water -in an attempt to make our own snowglobes.
  19. In Senior Kindergarten (my current boyfriend, then, a tiny little 5yo rascal) through a brick at my head because I wouldn't share a Fisher Price Hospital with him - he shoved me!
  20. I can make a 'crack'ing sound -similar to when you crack your knuckles- with my left ankle
  21. *I love my soul-mate Melissa* (this one's for you my dedicated reader!)
  22. ^ as per one of my fave Sex and the City quotes, "Don't laugh at me... but maybe we could be each others soul mates. And then we could just let men be just these great nice guys to have fun with."
  23. After Frank gave me a 'to keep your finger warm until the real thing' ring in 2002, I've been wearing one of the 3 rings he gave me on my ring finger....until the real thing.

  30. In high school, after early dismissals, I used to have my girls over and make fried rice for them
  31. I'm the type of person that you can throw into any store and I can a) find something to buy or b) choose the most expensive thing without seeing the price tag. Champagne taste, beer money.
  32. As soon as I get into my car, I lock the doors. Whenever I reach home, I don't exit my car until everything is in-hand, along with my house key already pulled out.
  33. I can swim but not very well. I don't drown or anything, but I tire easily and save myself by floating on my back or grabbing onto the side of the pool.....or another person.
  34. Although I have a small dog -Rocky- my chihuahua, I hope to have a German Shepherd one day and name him Diesel
  35. I can't sleep earlier than 12pm, that is unless I am completely drained which is few and far between
  36. I have to eat Reese Peanut Butter Cups with milk
  37. My favourite pear is the Abate Pear
  38. If I was on a deserted island and could only bring one thing with me, it would be Rocky. I would live the rest of my days with Rocky like Will Smith did in I am Legend.....*I'd bring Frank but I'm sure he would not qualify as a 'thing.'
  39. When I was little, I didn't listen to my mom about not jumping up and down after eating a bowl of jello - which resulted in me throwing up a nice orange puddle on the kitchen floor
  40. The two baby names that I absolutely adore are 'Alessandro' and 'Micaela'
  41. Alessandro - Alexander the Great. It's a strong name, but beautiful in its Italian form. I love the double SS and had the female alternative of 'Alyssandra' in mind (c/o Alyssa Milano) until a family-friend had named her daughter such. I love Micaela because I've adored the name Michael for the longest time, and in honour of Michael the ArchAngel
  42. Rather than 'swearing to God,' Frank and I, '...promise on Alex.'

  53. When it comes to Sex and the City, if I had to choose: I'm a Carrie or as I wrote in that post, a healthy combination of the 4
  54. I don't eat cantaloupe, we make it into a drink, by hollowing out the insides with a scraper that turns the melon scrapings into spaghetti-like strands and drink with juice/water mixture
  55. I love to scare myself and watch horror movies...real scary ones like,"The Exorcism of Emily Rose," not "Scream."
  56. I don't like wearing long sleeves, more so those that are tapered to the wrist, because I have small arms/wrists and find it annoying. That is why I either roll up my sleeves, wear shirts without them or opt for 3/4 length sleeves
  57. I don't eat pizza crust. But I LOVE Hawaiian pizza.
  58. My boyfriend and I have pinch fights -instead of pillow fights- where Rocky becomes mediator and tries to grab at each of our hands to playful!\
  59. I'm sarcastic - in a funny way. I find that a very endearing quality.
  60. I talk to my dog and have conversations with him.....not 'oh, you're a good dog' kind of conversations, but real conversations. He understands. Believe me.

  74. The most paranormal thing I have ever experienced is my dog barking at the end of my bed, staring as if someone was there....even if I tried to push him or go there myself, he just growled more, showed his teeth at the 'entity' with his fur standing.. *shudder*

  86. I have a Wedding Blog -not accessible to anyone but me, because I found out about a secret lurker- even though I am not engaged nor will be within the next year or 2. I do it more so to have all my ducks in a row when I am ease the hurry and stress of organizing such a Big Day
  87. If I like something in the store, and don't feel that I have the money at the time to buy it, I tell myself to 'come back for it' and if it's still there when I come back after a period of time ($ in-hand) I believe it was -meant to be-!
