Sunday Social ~ 5 Things

It’s Sunday again. I always seem to have a love-hate relationship with Sunday. I love the feel of a Sunday ~ relaxing and quiet. Then there's the knowledge that it's the last day of the weekend and that tomorrow is Monday. The way I have chosen to look upon Monday is this ~ it's going to be a fabulous week! Now it's time for some Sunday social fun with Ashley Lately

~ Five things you want us to know about you ~
1. I’m a hopeless romantic. I believe in true love and love at first sight. I believe you just know!
2. I’m a small town girl. I grew up in small towns – Naperville, Latrobe, Plympton, and Roanoke. After going to college in Northern VA for three years, living in Los Angeles for five years and back to Northern VA/DC for the last three years I have discovered this to be even truer than I once thought.
3.  I want to be a writer. A Screenwriter, more specifically. I want to be able to put my two loves together: Books and Movies. I have read so many fabulous books that would make remarkable movies. I want to try and help Hollywood, because all they seem to be doing lately are remakes and sequels. I also already have a few outlines that I started when I lived in Los Angeles. Only time will tell.
4.  I’m a total Christmas baby. I might have been born in August, but I LOVE Christmas. It’s the most wonderful time of the year. I’m not a fan of all the commercialization that’s been done to Christmas. I truly believe that stores and malls should all wait until the day after Thanksgiving to display their Christmas decorations. That goes for Santa too! The day after Thanksgiving is when I put up my tree. It’s like clockwork.
5.  I secretly wish I was British. Although, I guess it’s not a secret anymore. I just really want the accent sometimes.

~ Five favorite things about blogging ~
1.  Finding fun link-ups that help me to discover new blogger friends.
2.  Sharing my likes and interests with other people. I’ve found some great book suggestions and ideas for all kinds of things from blogging.
3.  Being able to talk about things that really matter and knowing someone out there is going through the same thing.
4.  Doing little surveys like this. It’s really making me think and learn more about myself a little bit.
5.  Finding fun new beauty products. I’m so lame when it comes to that stuff. Oh and fashion stuff too.

~ Five things you are doing before the year is over ~ 
1.  Go back to a darker hair color. I don’t think I’m meant for blonde.
2.  I’m going to hit my goal weight. My goal date is Thanksgiving day.
3.  I’m going to run the Drumstick Dash this year. I usually walk it with mom and dad, but this year I’m determined to run it.
4.  I’m going to achieve my goal of reading 20 books. I’m on my tenth book right now.
5.  Pay off my credit cards!!!!!!!!!!!!!

~ Five favorite fall fashion staples ~
1.  Jeans – bootleg and skinny
2.  Boots – I just got new black boots and I love them. Now I just need to find some brown ones.
3.  Sweaters – I need some new ones this year. I think I’ll be venturing out for shopping soon.
4.  A good bomber jacket. I need to find a new one for this year.
5.  Either a hair clip or a hair tie for the windy autumn days!

~ Five favorite beauty products ~
1.  Vaseline Lip Therapy
2.  Aveeno face wash and face lotion for clear complexion.
3.  Suave Captivating Curls Mousse
4.  Lubriderm hand cream. My hands get so dry and it’s really the only lotion that keeps them moisturized.
5.  Gillette’s Disposable razors for men. They are the best I've ever used!
