I Want To Jump For Joy!!

I am the biggest nerd in the world. I an email from Amy @ A Southern Love telling me I have been tagged by her to and to answer some questions. This is my first tag. I have never been tagged by another follower. I have seen so many people get tagged and alway wanted it too :) But since I am fairly new to bloggin I knew I would have to wait my turn. And my turn is here!!! YAY!!! :-D :-D I told you I am a nerd. This has gotten me so happy, knowing people are actually reading my blog and following along about my life.

Here are the questions from Amy:

1~ If you had a chance to change your name, would you and what would it be?
This is a great question because because my mom picked my first name, Lindsay. My dad picked my middle name, Alexis. Now I have to be honest, and momma knows this already...I think Alexis is a gorgeous name. It is so strong and well like my dad says bitchy. haha! That sounds so awful, I know, but at work because of being the HR Manager, employees thought I was kinda bitchy. Well employees let me tell you it comes with that position. I had to keep the policies in tact. So my dad always called me Alexis when I was standing my ground and being firm. All in all, I would love to go by Alexis now, but it would just be too difficult to make everyone change what they have been calling me for 26 years now. Hubby calls me Alexis all the time :)
2 ~ What is/are your favorite books?
My favorite book of all time is Little Women. It brings me back to my childhood of when I would read it with momma or dad :) It is a classic in my book.

3 ~ If you were told you have one minute to pick out one outfit from your closet, but not told where you were going, what would you pick and why?
This is so easy, haha!! I would of course pick out a super cute pair of jeans. Either my favorite Lucky Brand pair or my Hudsons. They are both dark jeans, so they can be dressed up. Then I would pick out a cute top, but in all reality I wouldn't pick it...I would ask Aarika to pick it. She just has a better eye for fashion. Although I do love fashion so much :) Anyways, as for shoes well I would love to wear flip flops, but hubby seriously cannot stand them. He wants me to those them ALL away. I would have to pick heels because hubby absolutely loves when I wear heels. I would just put my flip flops in my purse for later ;)

4 ~ What is your favorite dessert?
Ice Cream hands down. I love ice cream so so much. I couldn't care less about pie or cake, but I never say no to ice cream. Never. Another favorite is Confetti Cake :) It is so yummy and so sweet! Actually the cake hubby and I cut into for the wedding was a confetti cake. I just love it so much! I had always wanted my wedding cake to be that, and well I found a place that would do it for me :)

5 ~ What has been the best vacation you have taken so far and what would be your ultimate dream vacation?
Best vacation was to Europe. It.was.the.most.amazing.trip.ever. I brought a journal with me so I could relive it the rest of my life :) My ultimate vacation would be for hubby and I to travel to Ireland and Italy. Ireland is the one place I have always dreamed about visiting. The lushness (not sure if that is a word haha!) of the island, the greenness, the beauty...oh can I please go now?? :) And Italy. Hubby is full Italian. So we would love to travel Italy together, but the non-tourist places. I cannot wait to do either. They will both be such amazing vacations. eekk!! I am getting so pumped and I have no clue why, because we aren't going any time soon hahaha!!

6 ~ What are some of your favorite Bible versus?
I went to a Christian high school and we had to memorize so many bible verses. This is the one that always stood out to me and to this day, I still love it. Philippians 4:8 "Finally brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - of anything is excellent or praiseworthy- think about such things."

7 ~ Where do you see yourself in five years?
Back in California, preferrably near the ocean in San Diego.
I hope to have a family of my own...including my four three kiddos :)
I would love to be a stay at home momma and own a home with hubby.

8 ~ What is your daily skincare routine?
I have tried everything in the book, but I am super sensitive when it comes to my face. I don't even remember how I started using Murad, but it is awesome!!
~ I wash my face with the Clarifying Cleanser in the Acne Line. I used to break out so badly, but not at all anymore. I still use this cleanser, just to keep any breakouts from coming :)

~ In the morning I use the Energizing Pomegranate Moisturizer with SPF 15. It is not heavy moisturizer at all, it is totally light...and smells pretty nice too :)
~ At night I wash my face with the Clarifying Cleanser. Then I use two products from B.Kamins.
First is the lactic-10 which help increase cellular renewal for a smoother, brighter skin tone, control unwanted sebum, and soothe and calm skin with anti-inflammatory Vitamin B5.
Then is the Lifting Serum (AntiAging Wrinkle Lift) creates an instant tightening “lifting” sensation and helps firm and plump the skin making wrinkles appear to lift and soften.
I use these products to help reduce get rid of the acne scars I have, which now I have almost zero :) and it rejuvenates my skin to look fresh and 'new' :)
I love all these products, I highly recommend Murad and B.Kamins.

There you have it ladies, more info about me :) Aren't you all loving this? I totally am. I am having so much writing blogging and knowing that other ladies out there want to know more about me :) It seriously is a compliment.

Have a great weekend!!!
