7 Things & A Winner


A while back, Natasha of Schue Love graciously gave me the Stylish Blogger award. I was so excited and still am! I was really busy with work at the time, so I didn't get a chance to share "7 Things" about myself. That's a requirement of getting the award ya know! Work has finally calmed down, so here are 7 things... 


1. I am from Huntsville, Alabama. That is a surprise to some people- not sure why. The city is big, but not too big, family oriented, and gorgeous (contrary to what some people think about most cities in Alabama). My family still lives there and I miss them dearly. You can read more about my immediate family here



2. My mom and I had the special opportunity to attend not one, but three tapings of the Oprah Show last year. Yes, Oprah is my hero. The first show was a "Friday's Live" show that featured Pink and The Rock. I was about 12 ft away from the stage and it was honestly one of the most exciting experiences of my life. Before the show started, she came out on the stage, with no shoes on, and held a conversation with the audience. Anything was on the table. She answered every question. Loved it! We stood in the standby line for the second show and miraculously made it in. Oprah didn't get through all of the topics during that show, so she taped a second show. Mom and I had the BEST time. I'll always cherish our time together during that trip, and the show and Oprah for the rest of my life.


3. Kim's makeup always looks flawless right?? I would have NO CLUE how to make my face look that good because I don't wear makeup. My grandmother never allowed my mom to wear it and my mom never allowed me to wear it. I begged her for about two weeks in high school to let me wear it, then eventually got tired of asking. I've had my makeup done a few times for photoshoots, but I don't know anything about applying anything other than lip gloss, lipstick, and lip liner-- and sometimes me and the lip liner have issues!!




4. Over the last few months, I have developed this "thing" for photography. I have always loved beautiful photos, but have become interested in learning how to take them myself. I took the photo above of my darling Maxwell. The second photo is one that I took in my living room. I'll be doing a post on it later this week... I enrolled in a photography "101" class this summer and am THRILLED about it! Its the first class that I have taken in FOREVER that has nothing to do with accounting. I'm so excited about learning something new...

5. I'm a little OCD. There, I said it. See how neat that bedroom looks?? That's how neat I like for things to be all the time. I get stressed out when things are out of place. Can't help it. God help me when I have children...


6. I don't like to be "obsessed" with anything on TV, but I admit that I am   obsessed with Bethenny Frankel's reality shows. I love her, her honesty, and her family. It's the one reality show that I can watch over and over again. She just keeps it real and I respect her for that. And if only I could find a husband like Jason!!!! Oh and her Skinnygirl Margarita is SO good! I highly recommend it.

7. I'm a thankful person. I thank God for all of the good, the great, the bad and the horrible things that have happened to me. I've learned from each experience. I'm thankful to all of my dear friends for their love and friendship. I'm thankful to all of you who support me and this blog. Much appreciated!

  3. Loved learning more about you! Oprah 3 times - you lucky girl! Your skin looks flawless. I used to be able to go without makeup, but perimenopause has done a number on my skin, so I normally need a little to make it out of the house. Thanks again for picking my number in your giveaway! I'm so excited about winning Gwyneth's cookbook.
