Tagged. Peaches Edition.

So you may have noticed that we have a listy list of bloggy blogs we peruse from time to time over on the right hand side of our page.

Yes, those are links to folks who actually blog…unlike us.   A novel concept.

And maybe if you’re super observant you will have noticed that there has been a slight lineup change.

See that blog Life In A Nutshell?  Yes, it formerly resided under “People We Cyberstalk.”   But now it calls  “People We Actually KNOW” its new home because (somehow – I’m still shocked) we actually scored the chance to meet Heather and her hubs Jason in real life just as the police issued their restraining order ahem, for drinks one night in Raleigh-town.

Blogging.   It brings the world together.

Anyhoos, our new blogging-Raleigh friends, have taken our psueudo-cyber-relationship to the next level and asked that we divulge mass personal information via a concise and oh-so-generation Y format commonly referred to as “The Survey.”

Actually, Life In A Nutshell tagged us because they know we have no blog content and this serves purely as overly indulgent procrastination.

So without further ado.   Here are the rules:

1.) Link to the person who tagged you.
2. ) Paste these rules on your blog post.

3.)  Respond to the following prompts (in bold).
4. ) Add a prompt of your own and answer it.
5.)  Tag a few other bloggers at the bottom of the post.
6.)  Leave “Tagged You” notices on their blog/Facebook.
7.) Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve written the post.

And here are the answers. Peaches Style:

1) The best investment you ever made:

Travel.  Hands down.  No question.  It is worth every dime, nickel and penny.

The husband ain’t so bad either 😉

2) If you could’ve written any book, directed any movie, and composed any song, which three would you pick:

Book:  The Harry Potter Series.   J.K. Rowling’s imagination, creativity, depth and insight astound me.  The pay wouldn’t hurt my feelings either.

Movie:  Something’s Gotta Give. Just so I can hang out in that house in the Hamptons.  Sheesh!

Song:  Dork Alert: Lately, musicals have been helping pass the time in the kitchen. What? I like to sing along, mmkay? Rent’s I’ll Cover You Reprise has especially stolen my heart.  And pretty much anything by Norah Jones – just bottle her up and drink her. So.Talented.

3) Weirdest quirk:

Well, I may have previously mentioned that I can be a little OCD.  Ok, alot OCD.   Don’t most folks *have to have* all the towels/t-shirts folded the same way? Skincare obsessions is typical for most women, yes? Don’t you always double, triple,  quadruple check the car door locks? WHAT IF THEY AREN”T LOCKED?!?!

No? Just me. Well then. There you have it. My mental illness for all the world to see.

But you know I’m surprisingly laid back, considering.  I mean I don’t care about your towels.  It’s just mine that must be in order.  THE FOLD MUST FACE OUT SOMANNA! It’s neater that way.  And prettier.  For guests.   See it’s logical.

Awareness is the first step you know.

4) One wish immediately granted:

For Haiti to get a break.  And some serious aide.  On a more selfish level, I wouldn’t mind if some things on the career horizon worked out in our favor sooner rather than later.  Just sayin’.

5) Most expensive hobby:

Eating.  Is that a hobby? 

6) An inexhaustible gift-card at which store:

How about inexhaustible sky miles? How bout dem apples?

No, ok fine Barnes & Noble.  Or Target.  Yea big box stores, so original. But I do love books….

7) In another lifetime, you’d be:

I have to agree with Heather here:  Tina Fey kicks ass. 

8) The most famous/interesting member of your family tree:

Actually, you know that famous prayer:

Thanks be to Thee, my Lord Jesus Christ
For all the benefits Thou hast given me,
For all the pains and insults Thou hast borne for me.
O most merciful Redeemer, friend and brother,
May I know Thee more clearly,
Love Thee more dearly,
Follow Thee more nearly.

Yea, Sir Richard Wych wrote that. And I can trace my lineage back to him (and a little bit before that).   Pretty cool huh?

9) What would you say to your teenage self?

Be Braver.


Dump Him.  

10) Which celebrity would you most want to look like?

Catherine Zeta Jones.

11) What would your last meal be?

It doesn’t matter I’ve updated this answer because  I felt really guilty about my cop out of an answer before.  Then today, at work, my answer hit me harder than a sumo wrestler.


YES! An endless spread of fabulous sushi.  OMG!!! nom, nom, nom.

As long as I’m sharing it  with my sweet Somanna.   (This still stands. Duh.)

But please bring cheesecake and Oreos boo!       (And this too.)


Now, go forth and conquer:  Mr. C, Sister Dearest and Erin.

And don’t forget to add your question at the end!

  1. Heather

    You know, I was wondering if we were going to get promoted to “People We Actually Know” 🙂

    Score one for the Nutshell! Whoop whoop!

  2. a) question #3 is a complete Elaine Wyche-ism injunction. I don’t know how many times I’ve heard her tell me the exact same thing. But I just can’t seem to fold correctly!

    b) it was ridiculously hard to answer this survey after you because I agreed with literally almost all of your answers. So, I changed some of them just so it wouldn’t be a total re-post, but some I had to keep.

    c) I love you.

  3. OI – where do I have time to stalk other blogs – you’ll just get retagged again.

    I’ll answer the questions soon enough, but dang woman…playing tag on blogs now 🙂

  4. @ Heather – whoop whoop for a Canes game, hopefully soon!

    @Brittany – yea Elaine ingrained that lesson deep. Kind.of.Scary.

    @ Mr. C. – If anyone can handle the pressure, I think it’s you. PhD say WHAT?!!


  5. Guuurrrl…I just got a copy of the new Norah Jones cd of her duets free from work. I’ll send it your way if you’d like. She makes me sleepy, but her voice is beautiful.

    • Haha, she is definitely chill music. But her newest album is a lot peppier. I’ll try to send you a copy of that if you’re interested. Love your answer for that question. Nina Simone is my girl!

  6. Mom

    Are you telling me that everyone doesn’t follow this cardinal rule of folding towels? I am still working on the Martha Stewart method of folding fitted sheets! A method that seems to elude me! Oh, well! My last meal–has to be seafood—oysters, shrimp, scallops, spots or flounder, hush puppies and slaw! Oh, yes! Bring it on!

  7. Mom

    My best investment?!!! My children—without a doubt!

    • Go to marthastewart.com and she can give you step by step instructions with pictures on folding a fitted sheet.

      I saw her do it on Oprah and it totally changed my life.

      You are such a sweet Mommy 🙂

Leave Us Some Love!
