Tag I'm it...

What is your current obsession?
finding art prints for my art wall and plates for my soon to be plate wall
source: Country Living
What is your weirdest obsession?
i have a fascination with little bitty food replicas. you can see some here and here.
What are you wearing today?
from the bottom up- black knee boots from banana republic (a present from b's mom), banana republic patterned dress from the local outlet, converse for target denim blazer, my peapod necklace (a gift from B) and retro inspired glasses (b/c the pollen won't let me wear contacts, bad pollen, bad). Please note this was written earlier in the week so I'm not actually wearing it anymore but it's way cuter than what I'm wearing now so I'll keep it.
Why is today special?
it's a beautiful day outside and i'm happy and healthy as are my dogs and my beloved B (oh and i haven't had a day to myself in over a month and i haven't killed anyone, so i guess that's reason to celebrate!).
What would you like to learn to do?
sing so that i could be in a rock band (ha!) until then, rockband will have to do!
What's for dinner today?
i don't know, i depend on B for that (he is the cook after all)
What's the last thing you bought?
two framed prints from etsy (more on that later)
What are you listening to right now?
B has Neil Young on the Ipod.
What is your favorite weather?
autumn, when things are cooling down after an absurdly hot summer but it's not cold yet
What is your most challenging goal right now?
obtaining my master's of social work (part time which will take three years). some of you asked where: the University of Georgia. I work in the grants department there so they'll pay for my classes!
What do you think about the person who tagged you?
courtney is very sweet and if i ever decided to have a wedding, i would want her to be my planner
If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be?
figi islands, but i wouldn't need anything fancy there, just the necessities
Favorite vacation spot?
the beach, any beach will do
What would you like to have in your hands right now?
my sweet baby nephew (call him X)
What would you like to get rid of?
abuse of all kinds (child abuse, sexual abuse, domestic violence, and and we'll through substance abuse in there for good measure).
If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
for only one hour? well, i guess i'd go play w/my niece for an hour, maybe she'd let me read to her. This is the most recent photo of her (pretty isn't she?)
Which language do you want to learn?
i'm the saddest puerto rican you've ever met. i can understand but can't speak well, even after studying it for years and years. so my answer is spanish (and yes, i'm embrassed).
What did you dream of last night?
can't remember
Who do you want to meet in person?
henri matisse (i would just give him a big hug for painting pretty pictures even when people thought he was shallow)
What's your favorite part about the city you live in?
it's easy to take your time growing up in athens (you'd have to live here to know what i mean).
What's the favorite piece of clothing in your own closet?
my vintage polka dot dress (there's a picture of me wearing it on my side bar of this blog).
What is your dream job?
i'd have a theraputic private practice for children (victims of abuse) and i would utilize art therapy (this will happen one day, in due time). i also wouldn't mind being the author of a style book...wouldn't that be cool?
If you had $150.00 now what would you spend it on?
if i had an extra $150 i wouldn't spend it, but i'd put it towards my emergency fund.
Do you admire anyone's style?
i admire a lot of people's style, i can't pick one...sorry. i'm inspired by street style mostly.
Describe your personal style: hmmm, feminine, vintage inspired, if i think it looks good i'll wear it regardless of current trends.
Who's fashion show would you want tickets to? My question- Who's closet would you want to raid?
i'd want to raid serena and blair's closets on gossip girl (i mean, who wouldn't?)
source: (yikes, unknown!)
So I guess I'm supposed to pass this on (please play only if you want will not hurt my feeling if you don't). Here are the rules:
1. Respond and rework: answer the questions on your blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your own invention.
2. Tag seven other people: I'd love to learn more about these bloggers should they have time to share!
If you've already been tagged for this, don't worry about it...

Tanya from Captivate Me
Polka Dotted Owl from The Magic Risotto Diaries
Annette from Wally's Paper

Thanks for tagging me but I already played - although I have to say that a lot of the questions have changed so I'm almost tempted to do it again. :) One of the new questions is who would you like to meet and my answer would be the same as yours! He is my idol! If you're interested, here are my answers:

Okay, so I know I'm commenting on an old post, but I clicked on it kind of randomly and... well, here I am. It was nice to get a little more insight into who you are. I guess what really caught my eye was that you are Puerto Rican and have a hard time with Spanish... I'm from Argentina and I have a little boy, and I am so sad that I have not been able to pass Spanish onto him... I guess, every time I tried, it felt very husband doesn't speak Spanish and neither does his family... and I don't have friends or family around, so it always felt a little bit weird when I tried. Anyway... I don't know why I'm sharing this here with you, but... I think your comment made me think about how Noah will feel when he's an adult, unable to speak his mother's native language... It made me a bit sad. Anyway. Blogging is a strange world of shared journals. Or something like that, no? Sorry for the long comment...
