Sunday Social - From The Lake

Sunday Social

I'm on vacation right now, but thanks to scheduling, I'm still here.. somewhat.. So, let's see what Ashley has in store for us this week:

1. What are 3 items you can't live without on a daily basis (water, food, shelter, and clothes don't count)?
a) mascara. I'm a natural blonde, so my lashes are fairly light as well. Hate how I look without mascara.
b) shower gel. I definitely need my shower once a day!
c) my watch. I still have not entered the world of smart phones, and forget about my cell phone most of the time. So I am still one of these people who rely on their watch to tell the time.

2. What is your all time favorite book? Why?
My all-time favorite book is "Smilla's Sense of Snow". Read here why. Another favorite is the "Song of Ice and Fire" series. Can't wait to find out how everything ends, even though it seems more and more as if the hubby is not all too wrong with his tip..

3. What is something you'd like to accomplish before the end of 2013?
Run a 10k. And I'm going to do it!

4. If you could go back and relive any year of your life which year would it be?
Actually, none. I don't remember a year that was so perfect that I would prefer it to the excitement of finding out what's next, watching the girls grow and enjoying my family!

5. What do you wish people knew about you without you having to tell them?
But I would have to tell then.. Probably that I am a smart, emancipated woman, married and mother of two. I hate being treated like a piece of meat on the street. It doesn't happen often, but it still makes me incredibly mad, uncomfortable, and insecure.

I guess that I am hanging out at the lake as you are reading this. Hope you all have a wonderful week!


  1. Have a wonderful and relaxing vacation!

  2. Hmm mascara is an interesting item. I agree with shower gel, though. Actually I worry about camping with friends, since I prefer to shower daily. Going three days without a shower would drive me nuts.

    I have faith in your 10k! Now that you are healing up just fine :-)

    Number 5 is an odd one, because yeah... you'd have to tell them >.< Hmm I am glad you say that doesn't happen often. To be honest, I see less and less of that type of behavior, but it may just depend on location.

    Hope the week has been good so far!

    1. I just love my mascara. I usually put some on even if I just go to the store really quick. But I agree with the shower, that is the reason why I HATE camping. I need my daily shower and a water toilet to be comfortable ;-)

      On number 5. Well, it just happened a couple of times in recent months that I was just walking down the main street, minding my own business, and get something along the line "Hola, hottie, look at YOU!!" and it makes me so uncomfortable because it is not a compliment to me but shows a lack of respect. Especially because it comes with a head-to-toes scan; I bet if I had one of my girls holding my hand, they would not look at me twice.
