Happy Monday!

I took this quiz after seeing it at Tiffany's page. I think my result is incredibly accurate!

Your result for Are You a Jackie or a Marilyn? Or Someone Else? Mad Men-era Female Icon Quiz...

How to Get Along with Me

  • * Tell me that you appreciate me. Be specific.

  • * Share fun times with me.

  • * Take an interest in my problems, though I will probably try to focus on yours.

What's Hard About Being a Doris

  • * having low self-esteem

  • * feeling drained from overdoing for others

  • * not doing things I really like to do for myself for fear of being selfish

  • * criticizing myself for not feeling as loving as I think I should

  • * being upset that others don't tune in to me as much as I tume in to them

What do you think? Does that seem to describe me?


I'm spending the day getting ready for some visitors tomorrow!



I'm eating lunch with Carrie and Aubrey and then they are going to come over and see my decorations! Maybe I'll contribute to Aubrey's development---seeing bright sparkly things can't hurt, right? :o)

Have a wonderful day!

I thought my description was right on as well. OK, Aubrey, your friend's little girl, is too cute here. I mean what a sweet smile, from such a little lady. Oh, and I haven't decorated yet, but I'm already mapping out the holidays, and making ornaments for my blog swap partner. She is way art-sy, and I hope she doesn't get my box and go -uh, what is this. So I'm trying to put a little extra time and thought into it. Blessings!
