 11 random facts about me:

  2. I can't cook.  Really, I'm horrible.  Ask my husband and son for proof {not that I'm proud}.

  4. I work full time as a Catering Sales Coordinator for the Univ. of Iowa.
  5. I ride the bus to and from work  Parking is $100 a month! No thank you.
  6. I hate public speaking.  Not that I speak in large groups often, but thinking about it makes me smile with a twitch and perspirate profusely.
  7. I'm 5'2".  And my husband is 6'5".  We win the award for awkward dancing and not-so-romantic hugs.
  8. Target is my happy place! And a pit for my money to fall into.
  9.  I recently became obsessed with lipstick.  I have a plethera of tubes of almost-the-same color pink
  10. I laugh {and cry} at the most awkward times.  Laughing at funerals and crying at comedians.
  11. I always wear my neck pillow while I'm driving {driving not riding} long distances.  Weird but true.

11 questions asked by Angela:
  1. If you were stranded on a deserted island with 1 other person, who would you want that person to be & why?  I feel like I should say my husband.  I mean he would probably be really good at building us shelter and all the other manly things he's good at.  But, if I wanted human interaction and conversation to keep me sane I would need my bestie, Steph, there :)  Can Q bet categorized as 1/2 a person so I can bring him too!?
  2. What is your best memory from the past 12 months?  Definitely the Christmas Cruise and Disney vacation my family went on a few weeks ago.  Seeing Quinlan's face light up every time he came across something new {which was all.the.time.} was something I will never forget!
  3. Your fave movie?  Mean Girls {I laugh the entire time!}
  4. Your fave candy bar?  Reese's Peanut Butter Cups {is that a candy bar??}
  5. Name 1 person in your life that has influenced you the most.  My mom! She is the one who taught me my love for shopping and fashion :) We're kinda two peas in a pod...
  6. What is your take on J.Crew? Love it & shop there often OR cute but way overpriced?  Love it and I do shop there, but it is usually over my budget.  Fortunately, there is a J.Crew Factory close by :)
  7. If you could have anyone design your home (and money was no object), who would you choose?  Steph from Oh!dorable!  Luckily she would probably do it for free :)  But she has an eye for design like no one I have ever met!
  8. If you could be on any reality show, what would it be?  The Kardashians.  I want proof that the things they say and do are actually their life.  I don't believe it!  ...And it would be fun :)
  9. Describe your ideal vacation.  Hawaii on an all-inclusive resort.  Beautiful location and no decision-making.  Epitome of relaxation!
  10. What is your fave song?  That's a hard one. No favorites right now, actually.
  11. What is your middle name?  LeeAnn No space, two capitol letters.  Sounds like a country singer, right?!
