While I am a little narcissistic and prone to self-disclosure I am also a YES girl. (Remember my favorite word?!). So here are my answers to another Tag. I so avoid these as emails but actually think they are fun on blogs. Don't forget to find out if your name appears in the last category!

8 Favorite TV shows
1. The Office.

3. Seinfeld. I am one with Elaine.

4. L.A. Ink. It’s like a trainwreck that I can’t look away from.

8 Things that happened yesterday
1. Woke up early but not to go to my hair appointment.

I love LA Ink and have decided that for next Halloween I'm dressing as Kat Von D. This was a fun list. I want you to buy that wish list house and I'll get the one two doors down...that would be so nice!
