As Close To Perfection As One Can Get

The perfect outfit: Low-cut, tight fitting top; dark, butt hugging jeans; and a sexy pair of heels

The perfect meal: Steak, cooked medium well; mashed potatoes; corn on the cob; cheesecake for dessert

The perfect hangover cure: Greasy McDonald's french fries; 3 Advil; and a tall glass of water before bed

The perfect road trip: Niagara Falls

The perfect facial feature: Piercing blue eyes. And a stunning smile to boot.

The perfect drink: Cranberry vodka with lime

The perfect song: Great Big Sea - "When I'm Up I Can't Get Down"

The perfect sign of affection: An arm wrapped around my waist, holding me close.

The perfect afternoon: Weather permitting of course- reading a good book in a lounge chair on the patio; catching some rays; a glass of iced tea within arm's reach.

The perfect vacation: Ireland

The perfect invention: DVR

The perfect type of wedding: An intimate destination wedding

The perfect album: John Mayer - Room For Squares

The perfect accent: Irish (think Gerry's character in P.S. I Love You)

The perfect date: Staying in for a movie marathon, eating popcorn and snuggling under a blanket together.

The perfect weather: A breezy but sunny 70 degrees. Not a cloud in the sky.

The perfect party: Costume

The perfect sport: Tonsil hockey. What? I hate sports.

The perfect thing to say: "You're beautiful."

The perfect day of the week: Saturday



Care to share what you would consider "as close to perfection as one can get"?

Thanks Tiff for the post idea!

brandy said...

Costume parties are definitely my favourite too! And "Room for Squares" was pretty brilliant. Also? You have Great Big Sea on here. As a Canadian, I love you for that!

distractedspunk said...

Michelle, this is adorable. I really enjoyed reading this. And your hangover cure similarly mimics mine!

Scotty said...

That weather, can be found quite often in Sandy Eggo ;)

Slightly Disorganized said...

perfect dinner: burritos with the taco lady.

Susie said...

Awww I love this!

Perfect part of my week? Going to Chicago to see my sister tomorrow :):)

Hope said...

The perfect drink: A blue lagoon made by the hands of your own, personal barman. :)

Oh and your perfect outfit closely resembles mine.

Perfect Gift: Anything that is a surprise. The bigger the better. (I loove surprises. Love. Actually, it borders on obsessed.)

ElizabethSheryl said...

Love this, and some of your answers were very similar to mine, oh yeah..I stole it meme style. :D

Gretta James said...

That's cool xx

ana said...

Aww I love this, will steal the idea for one of my blog bind days.

lspoon said...

I have t completely agree that DVR is the best invention ever!

autobiographyofmyfeet said...

The perfect post? Pretty close! ;)

Cecile Weekly said...

I totally agree with your perfect weather!

MrsTwink said...

Very cute! I liked your perfect sport. haha...

My perfect hangover prevention is... a large glass of water and a b12 vitamin. It works every time!

Julie said...

"The perfect invention: DVR "

AMEN Sister!

dreamgirl said...

Love this!! Totally agree on perfect weather, perfect drink!, perfect wedding, and perfect party! well done :)

Jess said...

I am in total agreement with you on a bunch of these and total disagreement on others. For example, I like my steak rare and I love almost all sports. But tonsil hockey still might be my favorite!

Marriage-101 said...

Girl, I couldn't agree more! The "perfect afternoon" made me swoon and long for summer in this miserable -8 degrees here in STL.

So, have you been to Ireland? I only ask because I hope to go within the next year or so.

Trish Ryan said...

Tonsil hockey! Hahahahaha! I'd forgotten about that particular sport (hard to fathom, since I lettered in it in high school...)

Great list :)

Jamie Lovely said...

I couldn't agree more with the perfect thing to say.

the fanny said...

Thank for for being the only other person I know who admits to hating sports. :)

xox

Nilsa S. said...

Perfect dinner: One spent in good company!

Who? Me? said...

The perfect hangover cure is pasta for breakfast. And some gatorade. Seriously!

Yoda said...

The perfect date you describe? Might well be my 3rd date! I'm excited :-)

nancypearlwannabe said...

Perfect hangover cure: pancakes and homefries and toast and coffee.

Hiya, I'm Kristie. said...

The perfect smile: from my children.

Love your list!

sassafras said...

The perfect thing to hear before going to bed: I love you.

Great post!

pbandrazz said...

I totally agree with most of your perfect things (except the McDonald's because I hate McDonald's). But cranberry vodka? YUM.

Perfect day at work: One with minimal interruption so I can read all my favorite blogs.

Katelin said...

I love your perfect sport, haha. And I couldn't agree more with the hangover cure, love it.

Jenni said...

Room for Squares by John Mayer is my favorite album of all time...by ANY artist!

I love this post idea...I just may have to 'borrow' it! :)

L Sass said...

Perfect Text Message: "I have a 2-for-1 coupon at Starbucks. Want something?" (from my assistant before work!)

PrincessPolly said...

I'm with you on the irish accent. My idea of perfection right now would be lying on a beach in the canary islands with a lovely trashy book to read.

swaaaan said...

ugh. steak should ALWAYS be cooked medium RARE. You're from the midwest! You should know this.

The Smarter Princess said...

Greasy food is THE perfect hangover cure!

Cute list!

A.P. said...

the perfect night out with friends: dinner at a fav restaurant, followed by drunk (well, tipsy) bowling, then a drink at our fav bar to make an appearance, ending the night with my place to just chill.

corny? ehhh maybe. but it's ultra fun for some laidback togetherness.

Chelsea Talks Smack said...

I agree on perfect thing to say. and I may steal this.

Virginia said...

I don't think words can express how much I love theme parties. I think every party we hosted in college had a theme of some sort (usually involving ridiculous costumes). I might have to post about that someday, haha.

Julie Q said...

dvr IS the perfect invention! Awesome post. totally stealing it. u rock. thnks ;)

Stephanie said...

Greasy French fries after a night of drinking? Throw in a bagel dripping with egg and cheese and butter and I'm good to go. :)

graffiti.girl.designs said...

what fun - i will totally do this in my next post!

Auburn Kat said...

I could go for some french fries right about now!

Maxie said...

Yum, cranberry and vodka. Delish.

The Underpaid Princess said...

Man, I want a DVR so bad. I'm jealous!

Maria said...

i love your ideas of perfection... i'm gonna have to do this one.

Miriam D said...

The perfect hangover cure for me is no less than three glasses of water before bed, then a fried egg on top of cheese, bacon and toast. Plus a couple ibuprofen.

janet said...

I totally agree with your wedding one, not that I'm biased or anything :)

Princess Extraordinaire said...

The perfect friend - loyal and true

Captain Backfire said...

I was going to comment on this yesterday and I got distracted!

Tonsil hockey? Best answer EVER.
