Prepare for a long post, y'all....

This morning, I had breakfast with my friends Z and K. K was in town just briefly and it was good to catch up with her.

Then I volunteered and tried to figure out if I preferred the belt over or under the cardigan. Verdict? Still undecided. What I do know is that Kiku is totally beating me when it comes to posing.

And then I thought about my seven facts in honor of the Versatile Blogger award I got from Lyddie.

So here they are:
1. I have the hardest time memorizing numbers of any kind. Phone numbers, addresses, birthdays, times.... I can, however remember prices that I paid for clothes.

2. I am always cold. Always.

3. I hate switching purses and avoid this if it's at all possible.

4. I listen to music in German and Portuguese in an attempt to practice/learn these languages. I am not fluent in either. Maybe it's because this is about the only practice I get.

5. I was named after my great-grandmother and my mother. We all have variations of the same name, and I love having a name that connects me to the women in my family.

6. I think everyone should learn a second language (or a third, or a fourth); it's important.

7. I had a turtle named Snapper when I was a kid. I found him in the middle of the street and my mom actually let me keep him. He ate goldfish; it was crazy.

  1. I hate changing my bag too! HA! I never take everything out, so when I go back to a bag it always has some stuff (crap) still left inside!!!

  2. Congratulations querida! Totally well-deserved, I love your blog too!

    p.s. is this the award you told me about? =)

    I am soo like you, in fact, it amazes me how other bloggers can showcase so many purses! It just seems like a lot of time for me.



    Would love for you to say Bonjour at:


  3. Thanks for the award, I will post my reply on Tuesday!!!!!!
    besos, lynn

  4. Thank you so much for the award!!!! I will have to think about some awesome answers and will probably post it on Turkey day!!!

  5. Your dog is so very cute! And so is your outfit...I love the sweater with the belt.

  6. I just love that color cardigan on you! I think i like the belt over but with a little bit of a black vertical "line' like when it's unbelted, does that make sense, lol!

  7. I agree with all the ladies, I love that cardigan and your boots, I like the belted cardigan very much. I'll answer these tomorrow and thank you so much preciosa for the award, que linda eres. =)

  8. ay si mi hermana me viera contestandote y revolviendo el espanol con el ingles me ahorcaria!

  9. I have a puppy myself who can't seem to stay away from the camera.

  10. thank you so much for the award, just posted!

  11. P.S. belt works both ways, under and over! so...two outfits in one!

  12. When did you buy those boots? I like them a lot! I'm on the search for some decent cognac boots!

  13. Thanks for the award! I totally have trouble remembering numbers too... :)

    So funny you found a turtle in the middle of the street!

  14. I love the colors of this outfit - cfrdigan is amazing, and the colors of belt and boots are making it even better.

  15. I like the belt under e sweater best. I also agree about e purse swappng. I've done it more than ever in this 30/0 challenge, but only for the sake ofnthe challenge. I usually never switch purses! Too much hassle!
