Friday's Fancies & Get to Know Me

I've got some time to spare so this post is going to have a little extra :) Thank you in advance to those of you who make it through the whole post! :)

First - linking up with {av} @ {long distance loving}! Her blog is one of my favorites. Even if you can't relate to a long distance relationship, that isn't all her blog is about! For example, the Friday Fancies :) Definitely go check it out!
This week's theme is Best Foot Forward. So I might be obsessed with bows, and maybe I can't decide between gold & silver, but these are the shoes (and accessories) I would love to pair with that dress! Y'all go hop onto Polyvore & link up!

Next...I've seen a lot of bloggers doing "get to know me" questions for their newest followers. I think this is a great idea! I know when I find a new blog I always try and read a few posts back to try and understand what's going on in that blogger's world. I've been looking for questions to use and I'm going to borrow Pink Zin's questions that she posted this week! Feel free to join along in this, too :)

1. What time did you get up this morning? Set my alarm for 9:30! My brother was leaving today so I wanted to make sure I was up in time to say bye.
2. How do you like your steak? Medium well. I hate to see pink but I can't stand it burnt.
3. What was the last movie you saw at the theater? At the big theater I saw Young Adult. At The Lyric (our $5 movie theater downtown) I saw Puss in Boots! Definitely liked Puss in Boots way more. It was so funny!
4. What is your favorite TV show? Modern Family! I laugh so hard watching that show. The show that I love but isn't on anymore is Friday Night Lights. I'm currently watching it on Netflix! It's so good. I also really like the medical shows (Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice), Desperate Housewives, The Bachelor and American Idol!
5. If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be? Ideally on some tropical island, but I would miss my family.  Realistically, somewhere in the South. I really love the North Carolina coast and Charleston, SC.
6. What did you have for breakfast? Oops. Nothing. Actually, I had a molasses cookie. I made them last night! I'm really bad about skipping breakfast...I'm just not that hungry in the mornings! It's something I am working on.
7. Do you wear glasses or contacts? I've worn glasses since kindergarten and contacts since 6th grade. I primarily wear contacts throughout the day unless I'm sick or being lazy. Once I wore my glasses to work and the kids were in shock! It was pretty funny...they said I looked smarter!
8. What food do you despise? I don't particularly like sushi, mushrooms, olives or anything very hot/spicy! I'm a wimp.
9. Favorite Place to Eat? The Cheesecake Factory! My favorite place at home to eat is either Sal's or Olive Garden....I love my Italian food.

10. Favorite dressing? Caesar is my go-to...I'm not too fancy! I also really like apple and raspberry dressings, though.

11. What kind of vehicle do you drive? Jeep Compass. However, I don't drive to school! Talk about stressful...I take full advantage of our bus system for that! I'm so thankful for it - saves me lots of money on gas and time/stress finding a parking spot!
12. What are your favorite clothes? Comfy clothes...jeans, solid tee, cardigan, scarf. Yoga pants, cute t-shirt. In the summer I would love to live in a sundress and flip flops everyday!
13. Where would you visit, this weekend, if you had the chance? The Outer Banks!
14. How many tattoos do you have? None.
15. Where would you want to retire? Close to my family!
16. What is your desktop photo? I change my background all the time depending on time of year/occasions/etc! Currently it's this picture that I found on Pinterest:
17. Where were you born? Norfolk, VA. We were living in Va Beach at the time.
18. What is your favorite sport to watch? Baseball :) However, football is a close 2nd.

19. How many siblings? Two brothers!

20. Favorite pastime/hobby? Blogging, Pinterest, Scrapbooking, cleaning my room, shopping, watching shows/movies on Netflix.

21. Coffee drinker? Not a huge one! I do frequent Starbucks, though...

22. Are you a morning person or a night person? Morning person! I love sleeping in but it's much easier for me to wake up early than stay up late. I also love getting stuff done early rather than waiting around all day. During the semester, I go to bed by midnight almost every night! Grandma status...

23. Do you have any pets? Yes...I guess technically she belongs to Mom, but she is still my baby that I love to spoil!


Happy Friday! :)
