In her e-mail, she told me, "Whenever it comes to choosing my absolute fave of one thing, I have the hardest time. I'm better at the top ten lists of things. So these are the faves that come to mind but can change at any time."

Word: crisp, cheeky, chello, meet cute

Quote: "The sweetness and generosity and politeness and gentleness and humanity of the French had shown me how lovely life can be if one takes time to be friendly." - Julia Child
Most embarrassing fave?
I like Lauren Conrad.
You tell us about your faves all the time on your blog. What are some things that you aren't a fan of?
dress shoes with jeans, when animals destroy food in movies, rats, John Mayer, the NBA tattoo situation, necklaces on guys, Walmart, used bandaids
How are your dancing skills?
As far as coordinated and technical dancing, not so much. But I've been known to put on a show when the iPod is set to random or the 30 Rock theme song comes on. There's a lot of circular arm movements involved.
You throw amazing parties. If you could organize a party for anyone, dead or alive, who would it be? What would the party be like?
I would throw a celebration for my sister and her husband when a child finally gets placed with them through adoption. It would be a lovely outdoor affair with long tables, crisp linens and strings of lights. My entire family would be there
Here on [scattered thoughts by breenuh], I sometimes post Steps to Simple Happiness. Do you have one to share?
Every once in a while take the time to make a really big and delicious breakfast and share it with someone you like.
What is the best thing about blogging?
the fan club
Any blogger advice?
Post what you love without worrying if anybody else loves it.
Thanks, Melanie, for humoring me. It's been really fun getting to know you better!
