Today I had the bright idea to attempt pictures in the park on the way to the T. Not a great idea. Too many people stopping and staring and too many shadows to dodge from the weird awning.

First I tried my back to the East

1. Say one positive thing about my photos (haa you guys always forget about the post when I do a quiz so I GOTCHA!)

I loooove the one where you're facing the sun. Your hair is super bright and awesome. You make me want red hair back. Also I love your belt. It looks like metal (is it leather?)

2. If you could be an animal for a day which animal would you be and why?

A cat. I could eat and sleep in the sun all day. They always look so content, the little buggers.

3. Favorite baked good.

Right now it's my brown Miz Mooz boots with the Louis heel and buttons up the side.

Heather said...

1. Say one positive thing about my photos (haa you guys always forget about the post when I do a quiz so I GOTCHA!) - once again I am not following the rules as I have two positive things I want to say. 1. In the picture facing the sun your hair looks AMAZING. 2. I also love your belt.

2. If you could be an animal for a day which animal would you be and why? - I've thought about this in the past and I can never come up with a satisfactory answer for myself. Sometimes I think any animal that can roam long distances and sometimes I think a small domesticated animal might be nice. I suppose it depends on the mood I'm in. Roaming animals - I'm looking for adventure. Domesticated animals - I'm wanting to relax in a serious way but also be enthusiastic about the smallest thing and not worry that someone will think I'm a crazy.

3. Favorite baked good. - hands down it is buttertarts.

4. Describe your favorite pair of shoes? - I recently bought a pair or leapard print heels that I love so much. They are so hot.

5. Describe a "perfect" weekend for you. (idealized or real) - a picnic with a special someone.

6. How tall are you - 5'7

7. What is a smell you love? (doesn't have to be favorite. Just something you love to smell) - baking cookies. there is a cookie factory near where I live but the wind is rarely facing the right way...it was last night!


8. Have you ever been to the circus? - not that I can remember

9. Have you ever seen a giraffe in real life? - yes at the Toronto Zoo. They're so amazing.

The sun on your hair is just gorgeous, especially next to the blue of the sky. And as always, I like your style choices. That's why I started following your blog a few months ago!

2. If you could be an animal for a day which animal would you be and why?

I'm going to go with a bird because I want to be able to fly. I got a little bogged down trying to figure out which kind of bird, so let's leave it at that. Maybe some kind of macaw -- it'd be great to fly over an Amazonian rain forest.

3. Favorite baked good.

Wedding cake.

My current favorites are the Dansko Rory -- mary jane heels with a bit of a platform, and the strap ties. Kind of reminescent of a 1920s style. Very comfy, too.

Stefka said...

Hillary - I worked in Ipswich for 4 years, and lived in Beverly the first 2 years, Ipswich the last 2. I also grew up in NH (near Concord). But I'm more of a nature girl than city/suburb girl, so I escaped north (currently Vermont) a few years ago.
P.S. I'm also a cat girl and love whenever waffle & daisy show up in your posts! The love of my life is Milo, a chunky, goofy, hilariously lovable smokey grey tiger...

Definitely a dog, if they have good owners, they live a pretty charmed life. ;)

7. What is a smell you love? (doesn't have to be favorite. Just something you love to smell)Orange Blossoms - always know when Spring has arrived.

8. Have you ever been to the circus? When I was very young.

9. Have you ever seen a giraffe in real life? Yes, multiple times. I have fed and petted one too! They stink to high heaven, but they are beautiful.

10. What one word would your mom use to describe you? This is not one word, but seriously "The Good Child". She's actually referred to me that way.

1. Say one positive thing about my
photos.

I love the fact you have the
confidence to take these shots
in public. Plus the actual
setup of the photo's (we're
getting techy now) is just
stunning.

2. If you could be an animal for a
day which animal would you be
and why?

I have always said a well-loved
cat would be the life, but
spending a day wallowing in
water like a hippo is sounding
awfully appealing ...

3. Favorite baked good.

Jam Drops. Hands down.

4. Describe your favorite pair of
shoes?

A pair of taupe clogs that have
little leather scroll flowers
with a cross-over strap at the
ankle. They were love at first
sight.

5. Describe a "perfect" weekend
for you. (idealized or real)

Sleep. Blue Skies. Food. Family.

6. How tall are you

162cm (or 5ft4)

7. What is a smell you love?

Freshly laid Bitumen. Or my
daughters hair all curled up
under the blankets on a cold
morning.

8. Have you ever been to the
circus?

Nearly. When I was twelve my
parents drove my younger
brother and I 6 hours to see
the Moscow Circus. A Animal
Rights group were protesting
out front and handed me a sad,
sad leaflet. I wound up
sitting out front refusing to
go in .... what can I say? My
poor, poor parents.

9. Have you ever seen a giraffe in
real life?

No

10. What one word would your mom
use to describe you?

Oh, dang, my post didn't go through? Nah, I'm too lazy to retype them and I can barely remember what I wrote so long ago (I was eating breakfast, I remember that!).

Ah well, next time, Hilary, sorry.

1. Say one positive thing about my photos
Your hair looks EVEN BETTER in the sun. And that belt is AWESOME. And bravo for getting the guts to take these pics!

2. If you could be an animal for a day which animal would you be and why?
I would be a wolf. I just think that would be badass. And I'm sure the scenery would be beautiful (assuming I could be in a wolf habitat too and not just a wolf in Cincinnati)

3. Favorite baked good.
Oooo this is too hard. Cinnamon rolls! Cupcakes! brownies!

4. Describe your favorite pair of shoes?
They are navy with pink polka dots and a little puff on the toe and I've worn them ONCE.

No to-do list, a little day trip with Erik, cinnamon rolls for breakfast, and an extra day off work!

5'6.5"

7. What is a smell you love?
Bath & Body Works Spearmint Eucalyptus bath salts. I just open the jar and inhale and sink into it

8. Have you ever been to the circus?
When I was younger - I was underwhelmed. It's nothing like the movies!

9. Have you ever seen a giraffe in real life?
Yep, they have them at our zoo. I saw once play chase with a bunny once too. No joke. I thought it was a coincidence until every time the bunny changed direction, so did the giraffe.

10. What one word would your mom use to describe you?
She always says I'm creative, but I'm not sure I buy it. Maybe I was super creative when I was younger, but now I don't think I'm abnormally creative.

1. I love your silver shoes!
2. cat
3. my own homemade chocolate chip cookies (runner-up: serious chocolate cake, red velvet cupcakes)
4. dark red Victorian-styled laceup boots, kid leather with spool heels. No I don't own them, in fact I don't think they exist. I just fantasize about them and have for roughly 20 years.
5. hmmm okay 3 day weekend: Friday day spent puttering happily all by myself making things; Friday night relax in w/husband and good food and wine and read or talk or watch a movie; Saturday hang out with girlfriends and thrift and do dinner with cocktails and go home to a wee bit of fun with husband; Sunday go on a lovely nature walk with husband, maybe host or go out for a quiet dinner with friends. During all this the house would be perfectly clean.
6. 5'3"
7. cloves!
8. yes, but not for decades
9. yes, at Marine World Africa USA in the early 70s. The same place where I got to pet a tiger. He was probably semi-sedated but I still treasure the memory of how his fur felt.
10. well I know she called me both pretty and smart lots of times, but I remember most the time she said I was inspirational to her.

I like the quiz idea. May try it on my own blog, although it's not ready by too many folks.

Here we go with my answers:

1. Say one positive thing about my photos

I actually think the light in the first one looks great. And your hair looks fab.

2. If you could be an animal for a day which animal would you be and why?

My dog (so I could understand some of his weird behaviours)

3. Favorite baked good.

Oh I ADORE baked goods. Probably a perfect chocolate almond croissant.

4. Describe your favorite pair of shoes?

These days it's been my cycling shoes. Is that weak? Sorry, but I've been biking A LOT this summer. They are black, suade, velcro strap closures with SPD cleats. (Prob not the answer you want, but we aren't being scored, right?)

5. Describe a "perfect" weekend for you. (idealized or real)

A long weekend, first of all. Then it should include friends, wine or beer, some sort of fun physical activity (walk, bike, hike, ski) into impossibly gorgeous places. I should also get a lot of sleep over the weekend to make me feel happier.

6. How tall are you

164cm (or 5'4")

7. What is a smell you love? (doesn't have to be favorite. Just something you love to smell)

Freesia.

Yes, but as a kid.

Just 2 weekends ago, actually. If you consider the zoo to be "real life"

10. What one word would your mom use to describe you?

I'm actually going to ask her this. But I think she might say "logical."
