Three Things

I'm a fan of the Q&A games, of lists, of the rule of three. Of three dogs, obviously. So I made these prompts up. I'm curious about your answers, so if you feel like playing along please do so in the comments, for all of them or cherry pick your favorites.

Three things I'd never give up
My independence, sunglasses, painting my nails

Three favorite vegetables
Cucumbers, asparagus, cauliflower

Three shows I watched faithfully from beginning to end
Beverly Hills 90210, LOST, The Wonder Years

Three places I want to visit inside the US
Zion National Park, Seattle, New Mexico

Three places I want to visit outside the US
Iceland, Paris, Moscow

Three things I always have with me
Water, book, camera (phone or real)

Three things that are always in my car
Extra pair of sunglasses, dog poop bags, Totes bubble umbrella

Three most recent phone calls were to/from
Dad, MFD, shore contractor who is capping the windows at the house down there

Three books I read and loved in college
I Know This Much is True by Wally Lamb, Trinity by Leon Uris, Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell

Three most often used makeup products
Sugar Fresh Lips in Ruby, YSL multi-action concealer, Too Faced Better than Sex mascara

Three things that make me laugh
Poop/fart stories, Funerals/weddings (nervous laughter counts, yes?), falling

Three things that make me cry
Thinking about my dogs dying, when I'm proud of something or someone, frustration

Now you go.

Happy happy birthday to Aunt Carrie today!

  1. I am loving this idea! I'd also never give up your three things (people in germany seem to rarely wear sunglasses... very odd). You need to add Germany to your list. I swear, it's awesome! I can't believe I've never read Gone With the Wind. I need to get on that. That YSL concealer is expensive, does it last long?

  4. I Know This Much Is True, is one of my favorite books, ever! Wally Lamb has a few books I like actually, but that one is a fave of mine.

  5. hahaha love the poop/fart stories (same!). This is a fun little Q&A which may be borrowed sometime soon! :)

  6. I am so glad I'm not the only one that does the nervous laughter at funerals. I always always say something awkward too. And people falling will never not be funny to me...especially when that person is me.

  7. What a fun post, gonna borrow it if that's okay!? I always have the same three things with me too.

  8. Love this and it has totally inspired tomorrow's post! I love roasted asparagus although I don't think I could leave potatoes off my favourite vegetable list. I'm trying so hard to make a better effort to have my real camera on me all the time but I still often default to the trusty iPhone.

  10. I keep thinking that I wish there was some way to capture the hilarious baby farting in our lives these days...it just doesn't stop being funny. Sometimes she farts the ENTIRE time she eats.

  12. I'm totally doing this :)
    I still have the LOST finale on my DVR - cant get rid of it.

  13. Great post already stole it and maybe some of your answers too. PHL just added Icelandic Air to its roster, its a sign! Been to Iceland and Paris, recommend both. Happy Hump Day

    ReplyDelete
  14. Like everyone else, I love this. I want to make a better effort to post and this is an easy one that's still really interesting. Bravo! Places I want to visit inside the US: Seattle (I'm with you!), Boston, LA.

  15. Funerals making you laugh made ME laugh.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Ha- I have a draft like this, except it's 4 things. I shall post next week. Funerals and weddings make me cry! With you on Lost and Iceland- I've actually already started planning for it but it got pushed to possibly next year because of work crap. Falling is my favorite- I can NEVER help laughing even if it's a friend.

    ReplyDelete
  17. oh this is fabulous! definitely doing this. 3 is my favourite number, in a weird accidental way. 3 cats! i don't think i've ever asked or found out, did you get all your dogs at the same time, or a few months/years apart?
    thinking about my cats dying makes me want to become a crazy scientist person who can somehow make them live forever.

  18. iceland is on the bucket list. my friend is leaving for iceland next week (no fair!) and my other friend just came back; he was blown away and wants to move there.

    ReplyDelete
  19. You have to visit Seattle! You'd love it! And I'm dying to head to Paris too! I try not to go anywhere without a book either, I don't think that I'd survive otherwise!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Ooh, this is great! I love this idea. It's a fun way to get to know you better, too! Here are some of mine...

    Three things I'd never give up
    My dogs, living in/near the country, (copying you here:...) my independence

    Three favorite vegetables
    Asparagus (so good, right??), sweet peppers, potatoes

    Three shows I watched faithfully from beginning to end
    The West Wing, The Mindy Project, The Newsroom

    Three places I want to visit inside the US
    friends in Arizona, Yosemite, Seattle

  21. I love nothing more than a good lists post where you learn something random about a person. I might have to just answer your questions in a post. Probably next week since I have the rest of this week scheduled out. Cauliflower is not my friend. I am just going to say that now. Ahhhhh don't talk about dogs getting old. I most certainly cry when I think about that!

    ReplyDelete
  22. High five (I mean, not really because it kinda sucks) on being frustration criers. I cry when I'm really mad too, and it makes me even madder because I don't want someone to see me cry and think that they hurt my feelings or something when in reality what's happening in my head is "YOU'RE SO EFFING STUPID I CAN'T EVEN RESPOND WITH WORDS ANYMORE AND MY BRAIN IS CRYING OVER YOUR ASSHOLERY."

    My 3 things always with me are lip balm, phone, and water. And by always I mean "mostly" on the latter 2, but I literally don't ever get far away from a lip balm. I need it like a bad habit.

    I want to visit Seattle too, and Zion! Actually it's on my list to go to every state in the U.S., but those very specifically.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Love that you used a pic of all 3 duggies in the intro, and poop/fart stories will forever be funny. I stuck with 90210 until the end as well as rough as those last 2 seasons were I still miss it!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh, This is fun, I love these Q&As. We have different taste in vegetables. (Kale, Butternut squash, Brussels sprouts)
    I like that it's specifically books that you liked in college, but I'm having a hard time remembering... Maybe - Atlas Shrugged, 100 Years of Solitude, and (also!) Gone With the Wind. Some of those may have carried over from high school though.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Totally stealing this from you. Thanks girl.
    I mentioned to the hubby last week that I'm so painfully aware of our dogs getting older and I was tearing up and he was giving me flack. Not trying to be negative at all, it's just reality of the matter right? It's fkn depressing as hell and I'll probably have to take time off work, but that's okay. I just wished they lived forever, you know? Andddd this is where I stop writing because I'm tearing up again.

    Thanks girl. Xo

  26. Lost was/is my jam! That show is SOOOO good! Love this post!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I could never give up sunglasses either. I wear them constantly.

    Putting this in the queue for next week!

    ReplyDelete
  28. My camera is always in my purse. I think the one time that I don't have it will be the time that I see Bigfoot or a ghost or werewolf.

    ReplyDelete

  30. My sister went to Zion and her pictures are amazing. She said it was absolutely incredible. Now I'm dying to go, obviously.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I think it would be hard for me to pick just 3 veggies but I'm with you on the sunglasses! I can't function outdoors during daylight without them.

    ReplyDelete
  32. This was fun . . . saving to do something similar in the future!! You always have fun content - glad to you're "there!"

    ReplyDelete
  33. Farts are always funny. ALWAYS.

    I love that we all read I Know This Much is True in college. I think it was your copy that got passed around, actually.

    Stealing this idea.

    ReplyDelete
  34. What is a bubble umbrella? I'm surprised that poop bags aren't surgically attached to you given all the challenges you've had with the pups lately. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I cry when I'm frustrated too.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Zions is fabulous! Surprisingly, Utah in general is a pretty fun, beautiful place, especially if you enjoy the outdoors. I also have a book, a camera and water with me at all times!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I am also one of the Q&A lovers when I'm in college. I love getting information's and tend to answer those interesting questions. It was one of my coolest habits during college and it was a great fun for me. Also, with the online cv writing services, I also able to learn a lot of things in learning some writing stuff that developed my skills.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Yep I'm doing this one. By the way, you and Kristen both need to come to Seattle. It's a truly wonderful place. Has it's up's and down's like any city. But you'd have a blast!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Three things I’d never give up

    Three things that make me cry
    Thinking about my mom and how much I miss her or just thinking of the past before everything spun out of control, thinking of losing my cat Adonis, dreams of anyone I care about dying.
