This Silly Things About Me tag comes courtesy of one of my favorite blogs, Sassafrass Jane. So, I've adored this girl since we were kids (I was her babysitter way back when) and am thrilled we're in touch as adults. She is hilarious in a Coco-type way and lacks a filter like her, too. Take a look.....promise you'll love her.

1. What time did you get up this morning? 11:00am....after going to bed at 4:00pm yesterday. Traveled back from Texas in the middle of the night when Lainey started vomiting. After 12 hours of sleep over the 3 previous days, I needed to catch up.

2. How do you like your steak? Medium.

3. What was the last film you saw at the cinema? Half of the movie, I Can Do Bad All By Myself. Will go back for the rest another day.

4. What is your favorite TV show? The Office, Real Housewives of Anywhere, and The Bachelor. I love Giada and the Barefoot Contessa, too.

5. If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be? San Diego, on the East Coast, overseas.....I could go on and on. Love being a gypsy.

6. What did you have for breakfast? Slept through it.
