Blog Love: Here, There, Everywhere


Happy Tuesday, everyone! All my American friends are back to work today, right? I hope you all had a nice, relaxing, long weekend!

I think we can say it's unofficially fall, right? I mean, it was like 40 degrees on Saturday morning when I took Millie out. Brrrrr.


I've been tagged by four lovely ladies with '8 Questions.' Thank you Flip Flops and Pearls, Miss KS, Little Miss Can't Be Wrong & The Pink and Green Prep!

Since 32 questions would be a lot to answer in one sitting, and I'm certain would get boring for you all to read, I've taken a few from each lady. I can break the rules a little, right?



1. What is your guilty pleasure?

Well, I have several, from TV shows, to trashy magazines, to cheesy bubble-gum pop music. For this question I'm going to go with TV Shows and choose ABC Family's 'Pretty Little Liars.' Seriously, I can't get enough of this show!

Lucy Hale's character is my favorite...

2. Do you tell you IRL friends/family about your blog or just keep it to yourself?

Some of my friends and family know about my blog. I don't broadcast it, but if people find out about it, that's ok. My few best friends have known about it since the beginning and have been faithful followers. My mom loves my blog, surprise surprise :)

3. What is your favorite adult beverage?

As if I haven't mentioned it enough, I will say it again! Mojito!

4. Do you believe in soul mates?

I thought about this question really hard and decided that 'yes,' I do believe in soul mates. But not just in the romantic sense. I believe that my best friends are my soul mates, too. And even though my lovey dovey soul mate hasn't come along yet, I'm certain he's out there.



5. Cake or pie?




6. When's the last time you cried and why?

Now, when I answer this it's going to sound like I'm a basket case, but I promise I'm not! I cry a lot. I'm just very emotional. The littlest thing can bring the water works. I cried during Toy Story 3. Come on!

7. Who is your style icon?

This is a tough one because there are so many fabulous women that I look up to when it comes to fashion. Since I can't pick just one, I'm going to give you a few of my favorite ladies.

Reese Witherspoon

Sarah Jessica Parker

Olivia Palermo

Eva Mendes

Bobbie Thomas

8. What playlist/cd is on your CD player/iPod right now?

The question is what isn't on my playlist? I listen to everything! Most often, though, I listen to country, John Legend, the classics (Sinatra), and some hip-hop and R&B. Told ya, I listen to everything!

9. Do you prefer cats or dogs? 

Please, do you even have to ask??

10. What is your dream job?

Wedding planner. If you've been reading my blog for any length of time you know my passion for weddings. Maybe one day....

11. What is your favorite chick-flick?

Definitely the first Sex and the City. I could watch it over and over. The fashion never ever gets old!

Thank you, ladies so much for this fabulous game! I loved it!

Now for my questions.....

1. Favorite flower?
2. Favorite color combination?
3. Favorite celebrity couple?
4. Your theme song?
5. Favorite 'I've had a terrible day' food?
6. Lipstick, lip gloss or both?
7. Favorite magazine?
8. Favorite thing about fall?

For these ladies.....

 KB at Dixie Lust

Hope you'll play along, darlings!


Last week I was also given the Versatile Blogger award by The Sailor in Pink. Thank you so much, sweetie!

The rules are to tell seven things about yourself and tag seven blogs. Well, I'm going to count those questions above as my 'about me' and tag these lovelies....

Instead of working this morning, I would love to have a Mojito and sit and watch season one of Pretty Little Liars. I started watching it on hulu, but I guess I didn't do it fast enough because it's gone. Is there another place to watch it or is it out on dvd?

A good mojito gets me every time!! Do you make yours with bacardi limon? I've found it's the best little trick for a super tasty mojito without a load of simple syrup- gotta watch out for those hips ;)

Unknown said...

Cute post and love your answers! It's always fun to get to know people more. Love your yorkie pics! My Yorkie is my little diva child...He's spoiled rotten! And Olivia...gosh she is such a brat but she has an amazing closet! Girlfriend has great style.

Mrs. Potts said...

Pretty Little Liars is such a fun show! I started watching it when I was gone so much last winter. Loved it. Couldn't get Mr. Potts hooked on it though. :(

Reese is my favorite, but you found some other fabulous Ladies. Lisa once has Olivia P. in one of her WW & I commented that I didn't like her. She told me it was because she was a strong women just like we are.

This was fun to read! Love the pics you chose for this post. I hope you've had a good week! I've been so busy packing (we're moving this weekend) that I've had to keep blogging to a minimum - sorry I haven't been visiting!

I worked with Lucy Hale's sister for a year at a tanning salon. Lucy often came in to tan so I like totally know her. ;)

I've never had a mojito. I'm a margarita girl.

I heart Sinatra.
