Currently Forefront.

Let's have some fun with yet more randomness from Lula, shall we? This one's a bit different...

Obsessed With...

Ginormous, gunmetal grey hoop earrings. Purple, dark teal, and all shades of grey for fall. The song, "She's My Ride Home," by Blue October.


Happy I Bought...

Cargo's "Louisiana" blush, a fabulous $5.05 shirt at New York & Co., and a pumpkin spice latte...all this past weekend.


Necessary Extravagance...

The perfect haircut, brow waxing, and Prevage Eye Cream.


Dreaming Of...
A National Championship Title for my Bulldogs!

And finally getting a tattoo. You & You, are ya hearing me?


Listening To...
At this very moment? Paramore. Right before that, Blue October. Up next is Gomez ("Notice" is a very swell song, just so y'all know).


Dropping By...

The bank tomorrow, to clean out our safety deposit box, its contents to be immediately placed in a new storage system. Boring, I know.


Wishing For...
These shoes by Kate Spade:
Also wishing big for a serious, base-booming sound system for my MomVan, so I can blare Trick Daddy's "Let's Go" whilst driving past cows, corn, and tobacco. (It's crunk rap with a sample of Ozzy's "Crazy Train." Seriously awesome, y'all..it makes me very happy.)
Driving...
Myself crazy, trying to accomplish a hundred things in a mere 16 hours. I think I need wine.

Speed Dialing...
Sunshine, so we can finish our conversation from this afternoon, sans children, necessary errands, and the pressing demands of so on and so forth.

Addicted To...
Pop culture and other such nonsense, Sausage, Egg, & Cheese Toaster Scramblers, Peanut M&Ms, journaling, my iPod playlists, back porch dates with my husband, and learning.
Carrying...
Nothing currently. But when I leave the house, a teal bag that contains my wallet, cell, planning calendar, antibacterial wipes, gum, Aveda hand cream, and about 9 different lipsticks/glosses. (Yes, I need that many in one purse, before anyone says anything.)
Can't Stop Watching...
Um...nothing as of now. I'll answer this again when Lost returns to fill my life with joy, in early 2009. I am excited about Fringe, which airs tonight on Fox. Y'all know me and Sci-Fi deliciousness. And my DVR is taking care of the first seasons of 90210 and True Blood. But none of these are Lost. Nope. Sigh...

OK, your turn...share a bit...what are you obsessed with? Dreaming of? Listening to? Wishing for? Can't stop watching?

Uh, I think I lost the ability to keep reading after the picture from "Twilight". Swoon.

Amy said...

LIke you, my playlists. Thanks for some new recommendations.
My new favorite Smashbox lipgloss (also like you) I carry an awful lot of them with me all the time.
Watching Weeds.
Wishing for another good book. Can't settle myself into any like my August of Stephenie.

heathersister said...

You are far too busy for me. I am tired just reading that. I can't keep up. I am currently obsessed with Midnight Sun. Won't have time for Edward and Bella tonight, maybe tomorrow.

Sissy said...

A little first grader told me he liked Paramore and I wasn't sure what to say. NOV 21 is the day after my birthday so I could probably con the husband into seeing it, but that wouldn't be as fun as seeing it with you!

I am addicted to Grey's Anatomy. Yup. And thank you for reminding me about Fringe tonight. I do love me some Pacey.

And I use Maybelline Shiny-licious Strawberry Tart lip gloss. What does that say about me?

Debbie said...

Obsessed with? Getting my stinkin' house clean and in order. I haven't gotten into a groove since school started and I can't stand it.

Dreaming of? A quiet house in about two hours ;) And spending more time Edward and Bella at some point today.

Listening to: Nothing at the moment but gonna pop Nichole Nordeman in and do some cleaning when Hunka Hunka is at school

Wishing for...new clothes. I am pathetic right now in that area. I hate shopping and I need to hit the treadmill before I do.

Haven't watched much TV at all this summer. I did watch 90210 on TIVO the other night. What a train wreck. So not worthy of the first one. But I can't wait for THE OFFICE and ER and THE AMAZING RACE.
Oh oh and love love football. I can't get enough of that. Go Nittany Lions!

and NINE LIPSTICKS???? Had to say it...

FUN POST!

sassy stephanie said...

You do not have to explain the lipgloss/lipstick to me. I've got your back. I am the same way, plus about 5 in the car, 2 in the kitchen. My running buddies tease me b/c I carry it with me during marathons. Um, hello...never know when your pic will be taken. I can't get caught bare lipped.

Lauren W said...

Are you really getting a tattoo or is still just all talk?
Make sure that before you get one, you get yourself some Aquaphor. It's the greatest thing ever. I've used regular lotion, I've used tattoo goo, and nothing (NOTHING) heals a tattoo and preserves the colors like Aquaphor. Seriously. You can get it at any drug store. It will be your new best friend. :D

Ronnica said...

Thanks for the comment about my um, "love life." I appreciate it!

Oh, and your bulldogs won't be winning any national championships...it's our year. Boomer Sooner!

Heather said...

Deeeeelicious post. Love the shoes, LOVE Gomez (How We Operate makes me happy), can't WAIT for Twilight.

Love you.

Mama Dawg said...

Heroes coming back in 2 weeks, finding a way to make more money so I can literally fill my gas tank without having to borrow money from my mom (I need people to shop at my etsy, dammit!), dessert, my daughter's chicken nuggets that she made last night (I could eat them every night), ummmmm......finishing the book I'm currently reading (trying to read it for the past 10 years, might actually be able to finish it by the weekend). That's it for now.

Trish said...

Obsessed with.......Sarah Palin. Yeah, I like her. Alot. I can't however figure out why the media is so worried about her "Pentecostal" ties when we have Mr. "I'm not Muslim" on the other ticket........Yeah I went there.

Dreaming of........moving. I want a new adventure for my family. Just waiting to see if that's what God wants too.

Listening to.........the tick tock of the clock.

Wishing for........my pounding headache and excessive saliva to go away before I end up vomiting. That's pretty eh?

Can't stop watching.......nothing. I am not into any shows right now. I'm so bad at pop culture.

Love the shoes!!
And you know I am now also looking forward to 11/21!!

Yeah, I finished BD. Didin't totally LOVE it. I would have been very disappointed if I had to wait 11 months to read it!!
I'll e-mail soon my full thoughts on it........

Hot Tub Lizzy said...

what are you obsessed with?
Hmmm... selling my house.

Dreaming of?
Being with Mr. B.

Listening to?
Fox News... I'm at work and it's always on.

Wishing for?
Time with Mr. B (yeah... can you see a pattern)

Can't stop watching?
Whose Wedding Is It Anyways.

Kat said...

I love this post. And thanks for the reminder about Fringe. I need to go set the DVR right now. Well...I'll send Katie. She does all the electronic things in my life.

Obsessed with - blogging. It's taking over my life. I think in terms of what I could write about.

Dreaming of traveling. And remodeling my house. Of course this would all require a winning lottery ticket.

Listening to my own playlist. And I can't believe my first song perplexed people.

Wishing for weight loss to happen magically. What? You said wishing.

Can't stop watching "Weeds." Hands down the funniest show ever.

Live.Love.Eat said...

Wow, thanks for the reminder of Fringe. I always seem to turn the tv on, go to THE list & pick a taped show. I am dreaming of lunchtime so I can approach the end of Twilight...listening to Jason Mraz at my desk right now....obsessed with cooking.....
dreaming of James Franco as Edward although the picture you have up there DOES look good!!!

Rhea said...

I love those Kate Spade shoes.

You are lip gloss crazy.

Why did you refer to Tiffany and Heather with the tattoo comment and what tattoo are you getting?! I want one...

I'm obsessed with blogging and brightly colored clicky pens, writing about anything and everything and chai teas from Starbucks.

I could go on and on, but I need to pee.

scargosun said...

My mind exploded when I saw the Twilight pic. I don't know what the rest of your blog was about.

Brandy said...

Obsessed with...couponing; I've gotten my lil' sis involved. It's bad.

Dreaming of...a vacation. Seriously. Oh and a maid.

Listening to...Usher on a local radio station that plays on my laptop.

Wishing for...motivation. I have a million things to do but all I want to do is watch tv, read a few good books, and cruise by some blogs.

Can't stop watching...TV. I watch so many things..right now it's Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, 90210, Life of an American Teenager, The Shield, Big Brother, Sons of Anarchy, True Blood, Prison Break (I think Wentworth Miller is yummy!)and probably a million other shows that I can't recall right now.

So what's the tattoo going to be? I'm getting a new one on the 23rd.

And what's your favorite lipstick/lip gloss? I currently love CO Bigelow's Mentha Lip Tint in bare mint from Bath & Body Works. Mmmmmmmm...

Insane Mama said...

I currently obsessed with Edward. I WANT HIM in a really bad way.

I wish I could remove my tattoo. I hate it and get a cooler one, because I don't want more than one

Rhea said...

I meant to ask you, did you watch True Blood yet? Was it good?

I read the book series and I've been wanting to see the show, but I don't have HBO...

Me said...

I have a Kindle coming... and I'm going to break it in with the Stephanie Meyer series :)

Took me a second to figure out what November 21, 2008 and that picture was... because I've been out of the loop but now I'm excited to read it.

CaraBee said...

Obsessed with: The library. It's like buying stuff, but free. And when you're done you can take it back, USED, no hassles! Have you guys heard of this fab place? It really is great.

Happy I bought: The most darling little pair of black mary janes. I shouldn't have, but the Boscov's near our house was closing and they were 75% off. How could any girl resist that?

Necessary Extravagance: Mani/pedi. Twice a month. No ifs, ands or buts about it.

Looking forward to: My high school reunion in 3 weeks. Getting to see all my old friends! Yay!

Dreading: My high school reunion in 3 weeks. Please don't let me be the only one that is 40 pounds heavier than I was in high school.

Addicted To: Pretzels dipped in honey. Not sure how or why I started this but now it's my fave afternoon snack. Helps explain last comment.

Can't Stop Watching: We're working our way through Star Trek Deep Space Nine on Netflix. We're in season 4 now. We've spent so much time watching it over the last few months that I'm actually starting to think the characters are real.

And: totally with you on the lip products, hubby absolutely doesn't understand, but a girls gotta keep her lips perfect. Our cat is named Gomez. I've got the DVR set to record Fringe. Seriously, you and me, separated at birth.

Kim said...

I am not hear as exciting as you, Lula or most everyone who has commented! Things change when your kids are gone!

Obsessed with: A Bible study I am working on for our JOY class meeting next week.

Happy about: Seeing my daughters this weekend.

Necessary Extravagance: Lane Bryant Bras!

Looking forward to: Next weekend when Kristi comes home

Dreaming of: Selling this house and going to something a little smaller and on one level

Listening to: The heat pump running

Dropping By... The drug store to pick up medicine for my hubby!

Wishing for... My sadness to go away. I just can't seem to kick this blah feeling.

Driving...to the grocery store to get stuff to cook later

Speed Dialing...Nobody

Addicted to...Watching reruns and laying on the couch all day

Carrying...My fake Coach purse my
sister gave me

Can't stop watching...The new channel I have have found RTN, nothing but old shows. But when Grey's Anatomy comes back I am there!

Crazy Momma said...

oooohhhh a tattoo?! So exciting!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today via SITS. Yes, the TV is my savior most days - more than I care to admit...

Veggie Mom said...

Ahhhhhh...Conversations "sans" children...absolute Heaven! I'm sorta craving those Kate Spades, too. Do they come in a Size "I can't afford it"?

KristiLU said...

I have no time so I guess I am obsessed with my school work. I never really go anywhere except to eat...but I love it!

BPOTW said...

This'll be fun, I'm going to have to think about it for a while though. I just have to say I love those shoes! Are you going to be giving those away this month?

Vicki said...

That last one was from me.

Angie's Spot said...

Love the randomness! And here's something that will make you smile. I purchased Twilight and will begin reading it this weekend. I heard you screams of FINALLY all the way down here!

The Bayou Belles and Their Beau said...

I think it's so funny that we have the same musical taste. Paramore is my new favorite to listen to. Weird.

PhatMom said...

Reading Twilight. Typing with one hand. Cannot put it down. Addicted. BUT, those characters for the movie just aren't as "pale" as I picture them in my head. Thanks for drawing me into my new addiction!!!

Robin said...

Since I am in the middle of the Twilight books, I have to say I am obsessed with them. So much so that I am putting off reading Breaking Dawn b/c then it will be over! I am so excited about tv shows coming back on. My comedies and my dramas. And Lost. I can't wait to see how all the dots are connected there. I am wanting a new purse but don't know which way to go on that one. Too many good things are out there!!

Tiffany said...

We are SO getting tattoos. Rigth after USC is Nation Champs....

Mama's Losin' It said...

I can't remember all the questions...but I liked your answers...even though none of them included humping your computer.

Karen said...

Okay ... i got stuck on the 'finally getting a tattoo;. You did?? When, where, what???

last couple of days, for some unknown reason, I've been obsessed with getting my score back up on Spider Solitaire. Very weird...

-Bridget said...

I must have those Kate Spade shoes!
