Three Things Tag And What Is My REAL Name?



There is a tag going around the blogging world like a rampant horde of hungry zombies called "Three Things." See Erica's blog, Whimsical September and Julie's blog, Jewels Wandering.

I thought I would complete said tag because it means I get to talk about my favorite subject:


I know, I KNOW.

But, BUT, I will make it worth your while if you stick around to the very end because I am going to share a secret. A secret that will forever change this blog to infinity and beyond.

In my Tone Loc voice...

And it goes a little something like this, HIT IT.

Three Things I'd Never Give Up

Well, there are FOUR things I would never give up and those are:

Military Husband
#MaddiethePug
Castiel
BabyBelle Pug

Incidentally, BabyBelle just celebrated her 5th Birthday! She has officially been in our family for three years and we love her to pieces.

As a treat, I took her to the Polka Dog Bakery here in Boston. This is legit the cutest little place to take your pets for treats. The owners are so nice and pets are welcome.

BabyBelle excited for her new treats.

I also took BabyBelle on a special Mommy/Belle trip to the beach in Swampscott, Massachusetts.


I always upload stories to my Instagram so make sure you follow me there to see them all:


Three Favorite Vegetables

Green Beans

The BEST way to eat green beans.

Edamame

Yes, please.

Salad/Lettuce


I am not sure if this qualifies as a "vegetable," but I love lettuce and always order salad with everything. You can find me eating salad multiple times a week.

Three Shows I've Watched Faithfully To The End

Buffy the Vampire Slayer


Because Joss Whedon. I mean she is one of the most iconic female badasses in television history.

How I Met Your Mother 


Because I really AM Ted Mosby in female form.

Battlestar Gallactica 


Yup, I am a huge nerd.

I cringe when I write this because the series finale was SO DAMN BAD. I stuck around way too long with that show.

Three Places I Want To Visit In The USA

Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room in Savannah, Georgia : This place looks so sweet, southern and fun.

The Smithsonian Museum : Because, duh.

The Airplane Graveyard at Davis-Monthan AFB in Tuscon, Arizona : My Can't Buy Me Love 80s oldies will get me here.

Salt Lake City, Utah : Because of how gosh darn beautiful it is and the Sundance Film Festival.

Three Places I Want To Visit Outside The USA

Singapore : To visit Julie, of course!

Ko Phi Phi Leh in Thailand : Where The Beach was filmed.

Florence, Italy : Fairly boring, but hey, I want to see all those wide angle lens shots from Hannibal in real life.

and

I am fairly jealous Military Husband has seen Tunisia, which is the location of all the desert shots in The English Patient. Tozeur is where Katherine dies and Nefta is the home of Count Almasy's camp. If you know me, you know I love my English Patient.



Three Things That Are ALWAYS In My Car

Sunglasses : A NECESSITY! Ladies, wear those sunnies to avoid more wrinkles.

A hairbrush : My hair is always like a ratchet Barbie doll head.

Someone brush my hair, please.

Whole Foods Bag/Shopping Bag : Because if you live in Massachusetts, you better have your own bag to get the measly Whole Paycheck discount and to avoid Cambridge bag fees.

Three Most Recent Calls Were To/From

Military Husband

Mom

Yup, that is it and that is all. I am lame. Who makes phone calls anymore anyways?

Three Most Often Used Makeup Products

Nars Tinted Moisturizer in St. Moritz : Pretty much my go-to on the daily for years.



Diorshow Blackout Mascara: I will use this or Benefit's Bad Girl Lash. Mascara is a MUST for me.



NYC Liquid Eyeliner: Super affordable and awesome for achieving winged liner.



MAC Angel Lipstick and Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush Lip Gloss : I like nude/pinky lips with some sort of gloss.






Which is more than three things, but this is pretty much my daily makeup. If we are going out or it is a special occasion, I have a list of makeup items I enjoy. If any of you care to know what makeup and skincare items are my faves, let me know.

Three Things That Make Me Laugh

ME. What can I say, I think I am funny. But, BUT, as you know, no one is begging to me to work at the Laugh Factory.

My pugs being clowns.

Military Husband.

Rocket the Raccoon, Barney Stinson, Great White Buffalo, Horrible Bosses (You're gonna give me that dong, Dale), Infant Sorrow, Paul Rudd, Chris Pratt, Ana Faris, Adam Sandler, Dean Winchester being Dean Winchester, Chloe (Don't Trust The B and the hooker mouthwash), Bill Murray, people who are sarcastic AF, etc.

This list is endless. I laugh all the time!

Three Things That Make Me Cry

Well, I am an ice queen so this is rare, but here are a few things that recently made me cry:

Lion 

13 Reasons Why on Netflix

AND

FINDING OUT AGENTS OF SHIELD IS BEING RENEWED!!! 

Finish This Three Word Sentence: MY NAME IS


Graphic by Ashley Elizabeth
Yup, that is me. I have been thinking about coming out of anonymity for awhile. I suppose it is about time you knew my name (for those of you who I have not told), so nice to meet all you booboos. I hope you will move forward with me on a new blogging journey as Samantha, not as Mili Wifey.

Is it weird for you? Because it feels weird to me.

Your turn to complete this tag! If you do, let me know, and I will put your link in my post.

Say my name, say my name, because I am no longer Mili Wifey,

  4. I go to Aldi a lot and bringing your own bags is something you have to do. Technically you can buy one of their paper bags, but that's stupid.

    1. Yeah you basically buy bags in Cambridge, MA. It's called a bag charge. Haha awful.

  5. Um salad totally counts as a veggie and I have to eat it all the time too! I love that you took BabyBelle to the beach and to the store to get some treats for her birthday! I think that they always appreciate the extra attention they get on their birthdays!

    1. Yes!! She's so sweet and sometimes needs a little more attention!

  7. Did you cry happy tears hearing SHIELD is being renewed? I like that show. Didn't like that they made Grant the bad guy, though (still upset over that one--I liked him!!).

    1. Yes!!
      Wait, you didn't watch this season!! Wards story was totally great!! He was a good guy!

    3. Oh yay!! Let me know how much you love it! I ADORED it!

  8. Hidey Ho to you and the huggy puggies
    SERIOUSLY: "Whole Foods Bag/Shopping Bag : Because if you live in Massachusetts, you better have your own bag to get the measly Whole Paycheck discount and to avoid Cambridge bag fees." I had no idea.
    WE always carry out canvas bags to Harris Teeter but we get no discount and if we don't have them there is no fee. Wow
    We hope you are all well and about to enjoy Boston in the Spring.
    Hugs madi and mom

    1. Really? What did you think it might be?
      I was the only Samantha in my whole school all through elementary-high school. I think it's a more popular name now.

  11. I will totally do this on Monday. Its still weird for me and I have known your name for awhile now. I still refer to you as Milli. I love edamame. Its so good in stir fry. I drill it into everyone's head about sunglasses. Eye wrinkles will age a girl fast.

    1. Hahaha! It is weird! But once you meet me, you'll see me as Sam. I'm totally a Sam.
      Edamame is great!!!

  12. So... visiting the Kansas Ocean isn't on your top three? I am stunned. Stunned, I say! It's a happenin' place. I can't believe tourists aren't flocking there.
    Happy belated birthday to BabyBelle!!!
    Yours sincerely,

  18. So cool to have a real name to put with the blog!!! Charleston is my favorite place in the world...so much to see there. Of course, you live in Boston, which is pretty much the hub of "so much to see there!"

  25. I love BabyBelle! Soooo adorable. I also love the three things idea for a blog post. I might do one in the very near future.....

    ReplyDelete
  26. We so enjoyed this. I hadn't visited in a while as my Dad has been in and out of the hospital so blog reading time was really limited. I like knowing your name - it's like we're in a special club or something (the only one I've ever belonged to was my brother and I in a closet with a flashlight and all our comic books and Pez dispensers stuck to the walls.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. LOL! That sounds like a cool club. I don't think I ever was allowed in one, unless you count Drama Club or French Club and they were mandated by school policies to let me in since I had the highest grades in French class and I was a drama queen!!!

  27. And yes, I'd love to see what your favorite skin care and other "night out" makeup favs are.

    1. I think I am going to have to make some new makeup purchases here soon! Maybe I'll do a post on that. I've been using the same stuff for a long time so that will be an easy one (and I do have a few drugstore alternatives that are affordable...somewhat....why are drugstore makeup prices so high nowadays??).
