1. A singer (John Legend)
2. Best friends with Jennifer Lawrence

Hmm, that’s about it. Took me ages to narrow them down to 5…haha
Do you think you’re not adventurous, or do you simply want to be MORE adventurous?

Off the top of my head…

3) Creative cook/baker
4) Clothing/costume designer
5) Published authoress
Oh man, I want to be musical toooooooooo!!!! What singer’s voice would you want to steal a la Ursala? 🙂
Ooooh, good question… From today’s Broadway stars, Maybe Kristen Chenoweth because she’s so stinkin’ versatile… Broadway hits, Gospel hymns, Country rhythms, opera… Lucky girl.
Although in terms of who has the most golden, easy-to-listen-to voice IN THE WORLD, Judy Garland!
