Friday Finds: Facts About Me!

I have to admit I have been a bad blogger! I just got tagged for the third time in this questionnaire that I neglected to answer until I combined the questions/answers from the three lovely ladies who tagged me. I would have answered all 33 but I was scared you would never read my blog again from boredom! Please understand! Here it goes!

Thank you to KateSarah and Hiliary for asking me to join in on this!!

1. Why did you start blogging? Somehow I had stumbled upon Centsational Girl and loved every single thing about her site. I do love a DIY project, but this blog confirmed my other, interiors, and food! 

2. Where did you go to college and why did you choose it? I went to Meredith College in Raleigh, NC. I grew up in Raleigh and never once thought I would attend Meredith. I remember sitting at home looking up colleges and my mom made me look into Meredith. I did and once I saw the fashion merchandising program I knew where I wanted to go! There are no sororities at Meredith, just good girl friends, and I have a fabulous group! My little sister went there as well and had the same experience.

3. Do you love your job/what is your dream job? If not, what would you rather be doing? I do have a pretty good job and some days I do love it! Some days I wish I was a magazine contributor, some days I wish I designed jewelry, some days I want to be an artist....I'm a dreamer :)

4. What does your dream home look like? Well if you looked at my pinterest board you might be confused. I love bright colors, but love neutrals. Love traditional but admire modern. I like a mix! It would require a big front porch with a swing and rockers, white picket fence, beautiful gardens, fabulous bookcases, dream closet, white kitchen...

5. If you had a large sum of money to spend on yourself, what would you buy? I would probably decorate my house as much as I wanted, buy some clothes and of course, a new handbag!

6. What do you enjoy most about blogging? Meeting new friends and learning every single day! I enjoy every single comment and love hearing from my friends and family that read it too.

7. What is one thing you cannot start your morning without? I start my mornings with coffee and usually a breakfast bar.

8. If you could live anywhere in the World where would you live? I love where I live, and I love Raleigh. In the summertime, there is not a better place to be than where I live. I also have a thing for Charleston, that would be such a fun place to live!

9. Who are your style icons? Audrey Hepburn, Tory Burch, Coco Chanel. I did my very first fashion project in high school on designer Vivienne Westwood, which started my love of design. I had to read her book, she's a pretty crazy lady!

10.What's the best vacation you've been on? Honeymoon! We went to Ocho Rios, Jamaica which was kept a surprise until the day of the wedding when Stephen sent over my wedding gift. 
It was paradise.

11. What is your food weakness? Mexican, Bread, Chocolate Chip Cookies...

Hope y'all could bear to read all of those answers, thanks for reading even if you made it through just a few! In order to pass this along, here are my questions and bloggers tagged. If anyone else wants to join in please do!

I almost went to an all-girls college, too! One of my friends did, and she's made such amazing friendships! If I had an unlimited amount of money, I would decorate my dream house exactly the way I wanted, too! And throw in a Birkin bag haha!

P.S. LOVE your blog! It's so cute! Have a wonderful week!
