three months later

i just checked my formspring inbox and realized i should probably answer them before the questions started piling up and i got too overwhelmed...

sorry for being such a slacker and not answering right away

on with the first question

(three months later)

what song title would you say describes you?

this is a hard one... 
my son answered for me and said 'stressed' i replied with 'i don't think there is a song title with that name, tyler' and of course he came back with 'i'm sure if you googled it you would fine one' ha

What scares you?

the thought of my children dying or being kidnapped, losing my husband, mother, father, sister, brother... basically any family member. i hate death. also, i'm so scared of getting into a car accident or a plane crash

Who is the most inspirational person is your life and why?

wow, this is hard... i have a lot - there are so many women (and men) in my life who are an inspiration to me i really can't narrow it down to one

how do you manage to be friendly, beautiful, loving, sexy, motherly, creative and witty all the time???? ~ajl

haha i'm assuming this question is from my dear friend ashley 
(the initials are the same... so if i'm wrong, please let me know!)
my answer: i'm not - but thanks for the compliment!

Who's your favorite nephew?

this question was obviously asked by my sister
keely, ethan will always be my special, special boy - he really is the sweetest to his aunti kass
but really, i don't play favorites ;-)

Have you ever been called chubby?

this too was asked by my sister in the attempt to embarrass me i'm sure
yes, keely, i have been called chubby - by YOU!

i was just wondering if you can put up a feedburner subscription box. i follow so many blogs and i cant keep up on readers and id love to get your site updates by email. let me know:) itsmecristin@yahoo.com

thanks for wanting to follow!
i'm not sure how to do that so if anyone can tell me, feel free to email me to let me know how!

Hey Kassi, what types of clothes are you most comfortable in? like in classy fancy clothes, or jeans or a dress or pj's? -Erica (joyousjabberings.blogspot.com)

hey erica! i'm most comfortable in flowy, loose fitting clothing... i don't like tight. i love wide leg linen pants and could wear them all day every day (i pretty much do actually) and i love any and all lounge pants from anthro... my fave! i like wearing jeans though too and usually wear a loose fitting tank with jeans. comfort is key for me though - you will rarely, if ever, find me in fancy clothes - i just don't think i could pull it off!

super blurry - sorry - but this is the typical daily outfit
orange linen lounge pants from anthro
long sleeve white tee by ruca 

I would love to see a crafty post..soon. Please!

me too... 
once i get my 'groove' back i hope to be doing more crafty posts!
it actually bugs me that i haven't been and that my blog has seemed to change direction - the original goal of the blog was for it to be solely a blog about my creations and inspirations.... i'll get back there soon hopefully.

how old are you?

dirty thirty

and proud!

how did dan propose?

gosh, it's a long story
here is the short version
he sent me shopping (a few days before christmas) with one of his friends wives
she dropped me back off at his apartment
there was a note on the door telling me to come in, then a note and some roses on his table telling me to go to starbucks down the street, once there i was suppose to ask for the 'kassi special' i did and the gal behind the counter handed me a dozen roses and two (free!) vanilla lattes along with another note, that note told me to go to his car, got to his car where more roses awaited me along with another note, that note said to put in a mixed cd that dan had made and to drive to the biltmore wall ( a place in montecito, ca overlooking the ocean) drove there and called dan's cell (the note told me to) apparently his voice mail was suppose to come on with more directions but it never did.... so i waited at the wall for over half an hour in the pouring rain... finally, i got a hold of dan and he told me to look in the center console of his truck for the next clue, i did that and that clue told me to go to the 'hump house' ( a house were a bunch of dan's friends lived - it was on humphry lane in montecito - hence the name 'hump house') i got to the house and on the front door was the last note that said 'kasandra farrin __________ please come in' on the envelope and on the inside the note said 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.'
at this point i was still completely unaware that dan was going to propose - seriously.
i walk inside and this house that is usually a pig sty was decked out with white sheets covering the walls, white christmas lights hanging up, tea light candles (over 100 of them) and rose petals covering the floor with a chair in the middle. dan comes out from behind the curtain holding more roses and crying, he sits me down, takes off my shoes, washes my feet and gives me this great spiel about how he'll serve me the rest of my life, pulls out his guitar and sings a song he had written for me, then he pulls me up, grabs some champagne flutes and champagne, grabs my hand and walks me outside in the rain... we walk down to miramar beach and he gets down on his knees and asks me to be his wife!
it was all quite wonderful and romantic....
my whole family and all my friends knew and of course dan had taken my dad out to lunch and asked his permission a week or so before hand.
very sweet.

do you want any more kids?

but if i happened to get pregnant it would be a blessing, as all babies are, but at the same time i would be totally fine if we did something permanent where we couldn't have anymore.
three is the perfect number

Where is your favorite place to shop for clothing?


my favorite place for over ten years now!

just saying i love your hair! :)

wow, thank you!!

Lol this is probably going to sounds like one of the crazies questions you've ever gotton on here but I have to ask! I love the way your nose ring "fits" your nose. How do you get it to sit so close to your nose? You wouldn't believe how many I've bought only to have them stand up on my nose lol. They're always too big!

i went and got it put in at a tattoo/piercing shop
the guy was actually a total jerk and convinced me to get the smallest one. he put it in, i complained that it was too small, he told me to suck it up (basically), i was intimated and left. once i got home i took some pliers and opened it up so that it wouldn't hurt (it was forcing my nostril to pull up - it hurt so bad), there is a huge gap in it but now i can at least take it on and off and i like it SO much better now. i wish i remembered the size he gave me because if i went back i would go and get the next size up.

gosh, that took me forever!
i'll be seriously impressed if you read all that

i hope you all have a great tuesday evening
