Tag, you're it!

A "getting to know you" game

I was recently "tagged" by DeAnn from the S.I.P. Project (service is painless) to participate in this "getting to know you" game. I am so glad DeAnn reached out to me!

After reading her blog, I was touched by the photography project she has setup using her blog as a platform.  Essentially, she will swap a photo session with you or your family in exchange for the completion of a service project. DeAnn dedicates approximately 15 hours to each shoot and expects approximately the same time commitment from you in giving to a special cause.  I could not think of a more generous way for her to use her talents.  Click here to check out her blog.

Now onto the game!  This game was created by Vintage Gwen...

11 Fun Facts About Myself:
  1. My first major in college was interior design. 
  2. I switched from interior design to public relations/communications and now work at an PR firm. 
  3. I made a "career" out of cheerleading with a 17 years run as a cheerleader, coach, gym manager and judge.  I no longer work full-time in the "spirit" industry, but still stay connected.
  4. I grew up with horses and love them. 
  5. I hate milk (but don't discriminate against milkshakes). 
  6. When I was 16 years old, I created my own handbag business and sold handmade purses to girls at my high school and neighboring schools. I even had my own logo. 
  7. I LOVE (with all my heart) ranch dressing from Dewey's Pizza
  8. I have known some of my best friends since preschool. Our long-standing friendships mean so much to me. 
  9. As a homeowner, I now know how cool and exciting it can be to shop at Goodwill.  I use to fight trips to there as a child. 
  10. I just bought my first crock pot and expect it will change my life. 
  11. I like to think of myself as an "early adopter" of Facebook and take pride in being one of the first to sign up for it seven years ago. 
11 Questions from DeAnn:
  1. If you could live anywhere, where would it be?  What a long list... Savannah, Georgia; Charleston, South Carolina, Paris, France or Bath, England
  2. What keeps you going back to a blog time and time again? I love DIY projects, daily outfit posts (with descriptions on where the items can be purchased) and home inspiration.
  3. What are you top 3 favorite places to shop?  Clothes - Target, JCREW, LOFT  Home Stuff - Pottery Barn, Target, IKEA 
  4. What gadget are you drooling over right now? I NEED a mac laptop. My dell desktop from college is about to bite the dust.  Any recommendations on macs would be greatly appreciated!
  5. What do you hate about blogging? Sometimes the struggle over what to write about.
  6. What tech skill do you wish you were better at? Let's just say I would have pursued the "creative" path of my communications major if the classes were not at 8 am. I wish I would have undergone more design training on software programs such as PhotoShop, Illustrator, etc. I LOVE to design anything.
  7. What makes your heart smile?  My new iPad and my awesome boyfriend who surprised me with it.  
  8. What is your dream job? I very much enjoy my job right now, but would also like to explore the careers of a interior designer, stylist, professional organizer or event planner. 
  9. What is your pet peeve? When people do not follow up... I need you to do what you say you are going to do. 
  10. What is the post on your blog you are most proud of?  Wow, this is a hard one... Probably the ones showcasing the parties I have planned.  Click here for Pretty Parties
  11. Your best advice for new bloggers?  Find ways to connect with other bloggers. It is so nice to bond over things you both love.  For example, I met Sita from The Family Room Design Studio, an interior designer from Utah, through blogging and love the inspiration her home provides.

  1. Um, I think I purchased one of those fine handbags in high school ;)

  2. So funny... I've always felt pride that I joined facebook before anyone really knew what it was - back in Feb 2005. You beat me by a few months.

    Also - we need to see some pics of these purses you made!

    1. Ashley, we were definitely early adopters at UK. I remember the first time someone told me about Facebook and asked me to join... Oh, so many years ago.

      I need to find some pictures of the handbag line. I think my mom may have kept some.

  3. Thanks for tagging me Sarah! I love that were able to connect through blogging! I hope we get the chance to meet in person one day! It was so fun learning more about you. It just so happens that 75% of my closet is filled with JCrew and LOFT! :) And yes...let's see those purses!

    1. I will have to work on taking some pictures of the handbag line. Maybe I can get JCrew to carry them! ;)

  4. Hi Sarah,
    Thanks again for tagging me. I can't wait to participate! :) It was great to learn more about you.
    Can't wait to see your purses! Oh, and we can talk Macs all day...you definitely need one...right away!

  5. Sara, I am definitely going to take you up on the Mac discussion offer!


I love hearing from you! It makes my day. Really, it does!
