pregúntame!

{aka: ASK ME SHIT}

First, thank you all for the amazing turnout for my giveaway!  There's still plenty of time to enter before 5 PM tonight... click here for a chance to win your very own custom-order silk scarf!  And stay tuned tomorrow for the announcement of the winner and another chance to score your very own Suryanto creation!

Second, how about those Golden Globes?!  I love Awards Show Season!  I could ramble for eons about the fawnings and fashions of last night, but I think I probably wore out my welcome doing more of the same on Twitter already!  As such, I'll swoon once more over my very favorite look of last night... apparently, this was a bit controversial but I thought it was an easy homerun!



I think its flattering, flirty, memorable... the structure and lines create sugar-plum-Oscar-de-la-Renta-dreams in my head (although, at this early in the game, I haven't a clue who actually designed this - apologies), plus... PLUS, she's sporting The Coveted Shoes in blush.   Yes, its a little "Cropped Scarlet O'Hara,"... but in a GOOD way, I believe.  Go Tina!

And thirdly... I've done this before (here, here, here), and several other fabu bloggers have done this recently, but since its been awhile and I'm neck-deep in resume revising and cover letter composing, I thought I'd give it up to my lovely readers and take questions on anything and everything!



Fashion, beauty, weddings, marriage, career, unemployment, da bebes, travel, fitness, lame reality television, cheese, etc... it's all up for debate!  So don't be shy!  Delurk!  And ask away!

  1. Hi!
    Ok, i'm delurking.. and going straight to the meaty question..

    I'd like to ask you what you think about babies? Everyone around me seems to be poping them out, and as a newlywed I'm feeling baby-peer pressure. What about you?

  4. Delurking too... if you were going to the Derby, what would you wear? I need help and inspiration finding my dress this year! Hat suggestions welcomed too.

  5. I wish I spoke Spanish so I wouldn't have been totally mislead by this blog title! : ) That word looks too similar to the English word meaning "with child" that I won't mention. ; )

  6. Do you wear your wedding ring everyday? I also read ITPITB too and I've never noticed, so I'm curious!

    Also, do you REALLY want to go back to the legal world?

    ReplyDelete
  7. Maybe I haven't, but I feel like I've put a lot of effort into trying to stalk your wedding photos and I've been a mega failure. You sparked my interest in this matter when you posted about how your wedding was featured in a Texas magazine. I decided then that I MUST see the pictures, but I got lost all 756,987 of your posts.. Can you help me find them?

    ReplyDelete
  8. At first glance I thought the title of this post meant PREGNANT in some other language!! :) Haha... Thought you were going to have some exciting news to share with us!

    ReplyDelete
  9. If you were told that you could only wear one accessory for the rest of your life....what would it be? (haha, just thought I'd participate)

    ReplyDelete
  10. Ahhhh, Tina Fey and the SHOES. Swoon.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I recently got engaged {holy shit, like this weekend} and now I'm in wedding planning mode. The photos are a big deal to me. What was your process in finding a photographer?

    ReplyDelete

    My questionS for you:
    1. What is your favorite type of cheese/favorite way to eat cheese?
    2. What kind of car do you drive?

    ReplyDelete

    1- What is your favorite vacation spot for a 3 day weekend getaway? For a week long retreat?
    2- Favorite 3 cheeses?
    3- If lawyer-ing isn't in your future what would you choose to do? Ultimate dream job?
    4- Would it be totally creepy to come to Dallas just so I could hang out and eat cheese / drink ridiculous amounts with you and Rachel?
    5- Biggest character flaw you can't stand in other people?
    6- Have you always had such a distinct writing style? Do you find yourself inspired by certain writers/bloggers/etc...?

    ReplyDelete

    2. What celebrity do you love and what one do you hate?

    3. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would that be?

    4. What is your go-to wardobe piece you can't live without?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Totally agree that Tina looked fab last night! And I squealed with GLEE when GLEE won :)

    My question...or questions...

    1. I'm about to be the Maid of Honor (MOH) for my best friends upcoming nuptials...what do you think the most important job/task/responsibility of the MOH is?

    2. As a fellow cheese lover (seriously my wedding will have a cheese bar), what is your favorite wine and cheese combo?

    3. As an Austin girl myself, and you a former one, what do you miss most about my fabulous hippie town?

    ReplyDelete
  17. I know you're working with a trainer, but the trainer doesn't do ALL the work. I'd like to hear more about what kind of eating plan you are on. I've totally noticed a difference in your ITPITB posts! Yay for you!!!

    This is personal, but I have to ask & it's OK if you don't want to answer. But you have such fabulous stuff! Before you were unemployed, how much did you spend a week or month on clothes/shoes/accessories and the like?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Ooh, Tina's shoes were de-lic-ious!

    My question is - and it's rather nerdy - what is your favorite chic-lit/easy read book? I am going to the beach in a couple months and want a few fun and fluffy books to bring with me. I figured since you're a writer (and a damn good on at that), you'd have some suggestions. (Non-chic lit is welcome, too!)

    ReplyDelete
  19. You know what's funny... I adore those shoes, and I love the dress, but I don't love them together. (Sorry Tina! Adore you!) Would've liked more of a retro pump with that full skirt, I think.

    ReplyDelete
  20. What are your favorite cheeses & wines? Do you prefer wines from a certain country or region?

    ReplyDelete
  21. I thought she looked fantastic and the dress was amazing! In fact, I commented on how great her boobs looked in that dress and the hubs gave me a weird look.

    Questions:
    1.I'm going to Austin soon for work. If you could only eat at one restaurant there what would it be? (I will probably be e-mailing you closer to time for some good recommendations.)
    2. I know you are job hunting (best of luck). Are you looking for a lawyer job or do you want to branch out?

    ReplyDelete
  22. WHEN ARE YOU MOVING BACK TO AUSTIN?

    :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. How did you get to be so awesome? (Please cite specific examples.)

    ReplyDelete
  24. My fiance and I have decided to go to Napa Valley for our honeymoon. We both share a love of wine and thought what better place? What kind of suggestions can you make (things you would have done differently or wish you had done) from your experience in Napa?

    ReplyDelete
  25. So...delurking here with a strange question...I absolutely love reading about what kind of makeup and skin care crap people use...I think it gives me justification to buy new crap and bury my old crap in the beauty grave yard under the bathroom sink...so what do you use/recommend/always wanted to try?

    ReplyDelete
  26. no question...i just read your blog everyday and think youre hysterical...

    ReplyDelete
  27. Hey girl! So excited to read your answers to all these preguntas...what should I ask....well, I'm curious about Evs! Can you tell us the proposal story? I have seen pictures I think, but give us the deets. Where is he from? Did he go to Baylor for undergrad? Could y'all ever move to Austin? Have a great week!

    ReplyDelete
  28. well, as a photographer myself, i would also like to know what you looked for in a wedding photographer..

    ReplyDelete
  29. How can I talk Mr. A into paying more rent so I can live in my dream townhouse?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Hi, lovely...can't wait to read all your answers!

    So my only question to add:

    Do you have any siblings?

    Maybe I should know this, if so, please disregard.

    ReplyDelete
  31. If you could only wear one outfit for the rest of your life, what would that outfit be?

    Will you bake some oatmeal cookies for me? What if I ask really nicely?

    Also, can I borrow everything in your closest?

    ReplyDelete
  32. What are you wanting to do for your career change?? (If you want a change) You've said before you might want to open a wine and paper shop. Have you ever really thought about getting a business plan together and going for it?

    ReplyDelete
  33. 1. what's the next purse that's on your wish list? (in addition to, or if you didn't have Le Marc)

    2. which celebrity's closet would you like to raid? (Rachel Zoe doesn't count)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Are you glad you went to law school? If you had to make the decision over again, would you still go?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hi,
    FYI the dress Tina was wearing was Zac Posen :)
    My hope for next year is that the cameras keep rolling during the commercials and we all get to watch the celebrity chatter and schmooooozing going on. I realize that they do need commercials, so this needs to be streamed online. I would watch. I'd probably watch that more than the actual awards on TV. It would so be worth it.

    My question is: What type of skin care do you use? I'm on the hunt for new stuff right now... :)

    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I noticed on your other blog that you wear a lot of gold. Are your engagement & wedding rings gold too? I get really stressed out about wearing gold because my rings are white gold, but I know that is so silly!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I don't have a question, but did want to let you know that the gold coin necklace your dad gave you for your wedding inspired me to buy a beautiful gold round wax initial necklace from waxing poetic.... you should check them out I think you'd like their stuff!

    ReplyDelete
  38. What were you like in college? I'm sure quite similar to the fun, gutsy, smart Kate we see here, but do you think you've changed much since then? I know you were into your sorority-- were you a big party girl?

    ReplyDelete
  39. hey kate, delurking! I was wondering if you could tell me some of your favorite places to eat/shop/hang out in Forth Worth? I'm coming at the end of June for my cousins wedding, and would love some suggestions! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  40. WHo/What got you started blogging?

    I must have missed the "I am no longer employed post" What exactly happened, if you can go there... (I've known for a while that you werent work, just not the hows or whys.)

    ReplyDelete
  41. This is my week of de-lurking. I love your blog -- you are hilarious! Tales from the Breadline is one of my new favorites.

    Here's my question: if one were to splurge on ONE clothing item (shoes and jewelry included) what would you recommend?

    ReplyDelete
  42. What was your major in college? I always wonder what random people studied in college so I figured now would be a great time to de-lurk and ask.

    Oh, and I also thought Tina's dress was amazing (but the shoes were even better). :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. I've been married for all of 6 weeks, and my mother-in-law constantly asks me about when we're going to have kids. It's a long, long way off for us, and none of my responses seem to get the point across. Since you're much better with words than I am, do you happen to have a good response to that question?

    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  44. what was the naming process for the boom?

    do you think the 'fashion bug' is part of your dna... like you're born with it? how did i not get this chromosome? i have no idea what i'm doing and am consistantly impressed with how you care what you look like. why don't i care?

    what does evs think of your blog(s).

    What is Ev's style? Do you dress the man... or can he handle his own outfits?

    ok. done.

    ReplyDelete
  45. How soon until you plan a "Miss Maggie So Much I Must Fly to DC Immediately" vacay?!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Hmmm...I like this questions game that you play. But, to be honest...there aren't TONS of questions I haven't asked you that I don't yet know the answer to ;-) Here's a fun one, I'll see how off I am on what I think you'll say....where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years? Always a good staple.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Do you have debt? Did your parents pay for undergrad and/or law school? What do your parents think of you possibly pursuing something that doesn't require your law degree?

    How do you and Evs handle finances since becoming Mr. and Mrs.? All separate accounts? One big pot? Who watches the budget? Do you save together?

    ReplyDelete
  48. So I'm a few days late - but after reading your 2 other responses, I realized that I do have a question! Sorry it's on wedding/fashion which you have already covered though..

    How did you decide to buy a second dress for the wedding? And when did you change into it? I'm considering one for my wedding in September in case I overheat in my dress/can't move comfortably enough for dancing. Thoughts?
