What you may not, or may already know about me....

I received a message the other day from one of my favorite new blogging buddies, Samm @ Little House in the Big D. If you haven't dropped by her blog yet, please do. She and her husband live in Dallas and recently bought a fixer upper. They share some fun projects and I love seeing the transformations.

So, Samm passed on a fun questionnaire for me to answer about myself for my blogging pals out there. It's a fun way of getting to know me a little bit better. You may be surprised at what you find out:) I in turn pass it on to my new pals I'd like to learn more about. So here we go! 

1. What's your favorite meal?? 
I'm a simple girl and I love to eat. I definitely can say my favorite meal has been and still to this day, a cheeseburger. I'm always searching to find a rowdy burger. 


2. If you could only listen to three music albums for the rest of your life, what would they be and why?
1. Dirty Dancing Soundtrack. One of my all time favorite movies! Takes me back to my childhood years. Love to reenact and pretend I'm Baby.


2. Dave Matthews Band, Crash Into Me. Great album, never gets old. Reminds me of my high school days. 


3. Anything from the 80's! I am crazy about all 80's music. I grew up with an older sister (5 years+) and she was always blasting metal/hairband music. I'm now hooked for life. I LOVE Motley Crue, Cinderella, Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, and Metallica. I love to rock out and crank my radio LOUD!


3. What is your favorite item in your closet? 
I don't really have one actually. I'm all about comfort, so if I had to say one thing, it would be my jeans or PINK sweatpants. I actually really hate shopping for clothes. I'm pretty indecisive and never know what to get.

4. Last time I cried?
I easily get choked up. Likely Bachelorette or something cheesy. Doesn't take much sometimes.

5. Favorite TV Show of all time?
Come on knock on my door, we've been waiting for you...Three's Company! You said of all come you never see reruns of that show?? Jack Tripper, Janet and the original Mr. Farley and Crissy days. Loved her snort.

6. Favorite Movie? 
Sixteen Candles.. Donger need food! I love Long Duck Dong and FINE! I can watch it over and over again. Also, Man in the Moon. It was Reese Witherspoon's first movie. I remember the first time I watched it. I finished it and watched it over again. Such a sweet, but sad movie. Get your tissues.

7. What would your dream vacation be?? 
A trip around the world would be nice. I'd like to take 2 years to just travel. Can dream right?? That would be AWESOME! I love to travel. My husband and I like to take vacays that are a little off the beaten track.

8. Describe your personality in three words?
Creative, Easy-Going, Compassionate

9. What is the one make-up item you absolutely have to have on your face everyday?
My Smashbox Tinted Moisturizer. Gives you the moisturizer and some added color. I tend to get pasty white and this helps.

10. Dream dinner party guest list (living or dead)?
I would have to say the young, Elvis Presley. I would love to see him sing.


I'd like to meet Thomas Jefferson. He was so smart and so inventive in his time. How did he do it all? Did he sleep ever?? If your ever in Charlottesville, VA, stop by his plantation there. So pretty. Really sets you back in time.


I would love to meet Claude Monet. What it must have been like to be a traveling artist in his day. Traveling Europe and painting for a living. What a life.


I'd love to meet Marilyn Monroe too. So powerful in her prime. If only she knew it.


11. Why did you start blogging? 
I started blogging about a year ago. I was living in Virginia and had lots of time on my hands. I had someone send my a link to Hooked on Houses. I read Julia's blog for awhile and started finding other blogs along the way that I really enjoyed. I felt I had a lot in common with so many of the bloggers and was inspired to start one of my own. I wanted in on the fun and this was my opportunity to do something just for me. It was the creative outlet I needed. A way for me to share my projects with others and be inspired by others. A way of connecting with others. It's given me something of my own, something I'm proud of. You can put your whole self into it or as little as you want. The cool thing about blogging is that it's YOURS and YOURS only. If your thinking about starting one, do it! You have nothing to lose, only to gain.

Thank you Samm for thinking of me and passing along this questionnaire! I had so much fun with this. I hope you all had just as much fun reading this as I did answering the questions.

So now, I would like to TAG some of my newest Blogging Buddies to answer the questionnaire. Looking forward to getting to know YOU better!

  1. Great list, what a fun idea! I found your blog through Ask Anna.

    My 7 y.o. daughter put on one of my old shirts last night- a tee with Long Duck Dong that says "What-sa happenin' hot stuff." Had to do a little explaining as to what that meant and where it came from :)

  2. Thanks for the love back Allison! Your blog is a great read!! Cant wait to see what you do next!
