Blogger 411!

I've seen this post on so many blogs today! I am just loving reading everyone's answers, so I figured I'd share mine! :)

It's being hosted by From Mrs. to Mama! Y'all should link up sometime this week!

1. How long have you been blogging? And what got you started on blogging? Has your blog changed?
I've been blogging since May of 2011, I believe! My roommate and I made blogs just for fun. I had no idea I'd still be blogging today. At first my blog was kind of boring...it's definitely changed more into who I am and what I like! I don't always blog about my life - I'll throw in posts about things/outfits/stores/trends that I like!

2. Did you go to college? If so where, and what did you study?
I am proud to say that I attend Virginia Tech! I'm a SENIOR! I'm studying Human Development/Elementary Education. Prepping for grad school next year...
trekking to my 8 am last semester
 I love my school SO much!

3. Where have you traveled?
I've never been outside of the country, but the most memorable trips within the USA for me have been to New Mexico (to Philmont for a 2 week backpacking trip), New York City, Chicago, West Palm Beach, HHI, Charleston, etc.
New Mexico

4. If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you would buy?
A new car! I love my car, but I would love one with better gas mileage. I would then buy a vacation.
5. What are your 3 biggest pet peeves?
1. Smoking. Absolutely disgusting.
2. Chewing with an open mouth.
3. Wild children in restaurants...jumping in booths, screaming, walking around eating food...it's so annoying! Once a girl literally came up and stood over my shoulder chewing in my ear. Her parents didn't even look/care!!

6. What is your favorite movie?
The Notebook or The Sandlot. Or Dumb and Dumber.
I like to fall in love, and laugh.

7. What is your drink of choice; wine, beer, or liquor. Or Water, Soda, Tea?
I like beer out of the first three and Water or Sweet Tea out of the second! However, my favorite soda is Coca Cola classic with Dr. Pepper coming in at a close, close second. (And no, Mr. Pibb will never do...)

8. What is something you enjoy to do when you have me time?
Go shopping :) I love to shop by myself. I also like watching shows online and going on runs!

9. If you could have a $10,000 shopping spree to one store, which store would it be?
Target! Lots of people are saying this, but it's perfect! They have everything!

10. Share with us an embarrassing moment of your past? Or present.
I can't think of a really embarrassing one, but the one that comes to mind is going ALL day with the price tag hanging out the back of my dress. I walked across campus and to my classes with it hanging out until finally a nice girl in Comm told me and I ripped it out!
I have a bad habit of trying things on before I take off the tag (in case i don't like it) and then deciding I'll wear it for the day! :/

11. What day would you love to relive again?
My day at Disney with Steven :) 

12. If your life was turned into a movie... what actor would play you?
I have no clue! Perhaps Jennifer Garner? She is a good balance of sweet/fun/sass/bad ass...which is what I hope for my life, haha

13. What are the jobs you had in high school/college/the early years?
I worked at "Party Central" which is a small party supplies store. I am a master balloon bouquet maker. I also worked at a daycare which I LOVED for about a year until it closed. I also worked at the VT bookstore for a couple of months! Then it was to my current job :) 

14. Show us a picture from high school or college.
Some of my XC girls in high school!

15. If you could travel anywhere in the world, all expenses paid, where would you go?
Either a tropical island, Ireland or Italy!

16. Show us the most current picture of you or you, or your family, or anything of meaning to you. 
 A recent picture of Sadie. I think she approves of our new rug from IKEA!

17. Where do you see your life 5 years from now?
Graduated, teaching, living in my own house, puppy (or two) and hopefully planning a wedding or married!
That was fun! Hope y'all learned a bit about me :)


  1. Really nice finding out more about you! I'm your latest follower :) Check out my blog?

  2. Love this! And I totally agree about Jennifer G playing you! Haha! I'm going to link up soon!!!!

  3. Ew, smoking is one of my biggest pet peeves ever. Ever ever ever. But so is people who don't use cruise control on the interstate. That annoys me so much, too.

    And can you imagine how much you could buy at Target for $10,000!? That could get a whole lot of Essie nail polish :)

    Have a great day! xoxo


Thank you for the sweet comments! xo!
