Ashley tagged me in the 5 Sexy Things meme.
The rules are plain & simple:

* Write 5 things that make you feel sexy.
* Post a pic if you dare!
* Pass it on to 5 lovely bloggers.

Things that make me feel sexy…

1. My little Black Dress
2. How relaxed my body feels after a good run (at least 2.5 miles)
3. Doing my eyeliner and eyeshadow like Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s
4. When I channel my Domestic Diva
5. Rain (big surprise there!)

As for the tagging aspect, if you are up to it, have at it:

Fab Brunette


Lisa Yarns

Somewhat Voluble

The Melodramatic

    Now I’m curious to see if Coldplay, Elvis and anything jazz made it onto my mix CD. =)

    Also, that vacation? Hope Chicago is still on the list – you just need to pick a weekend to do it. The only downside is once you come visit us, I’m pretty sure you’ll want to come back for more. xoxo

    Thanks for tagging me – I will definitely play along this week! :)

    What 1/2 marathon are you going to traing for? Good luck getting organized for that. I made a spreadsheet yesterday and showed my co-worker. He said I am the biggest nerd ever, but oh well – I love spreadsheets! :)

    I really want to watch all the Felicity episodes. I am putting it on my list of things to do this winter. Target always makes me happy. And a lake vacation? Be still my heart, lake vacations are some of my favorite memories.

    So fun! I’m currently obsessed with Weeds, season 4, too! I’ve made it through the first two DVDs and cannot bring myself to finish the season and watch the last one!

    Ah, thanks for the tag!!! I will post mine tomorrow, for sure!!

    Sigh, rain is amazing. And I am completely jealous of your lake vacation!! I actually way prefer the lake to the beach, but there are not many lakes here. :(

    I’m seriously addicted to all things on sale at Target. It’s becoming a real problem!

    There is NOTHING pathetic about son in law. It’s all kinds of awesome.

    “Middle America, rippin’ the fields, ahooo ahooo”

    (My sister and I randomly say that to each other and we ALWAYS crack up. I freaking love it.)
