Thoughts for Thursday


Happy Thursday!

This is the first post in a while, where I feel like I get to take a breather and just catch up!  Nice huh?  I thought I would take an opportunity to join in on a fun game that Natasha from Hello! Happiness tagged me in WAY back in January.  Even though you all know that I'm having a baby come June...it's not often we get to reveal who we are as bloggers...the "behind the secenes" kind of stuff.  So, what better time than now?  Here it goes!

Eleven Fun Facts About Me
1. I'm the oldest and only girl in my family.  I have identical twin brothers...they are cuties! 



2. I have a mole on my belly that has become substantially more pronounced since I became pregnant.  I think I need to name him...ideas??  :)
3. I have lived in 4 different cities in my life...all of which are in California: Newport Beach, San Luis Obispo, Sacramento and now Tahoe!
4. Ironically, I had never gotten a cavity or speeding ticket, until I moved to Sacramento!  Darn city!
5. I was an English major {with communications minor} in college.  I felt like I left with so much great knowledge and appreciation for literature and history...it's also what pushed me to start this blog!  Exercising my creativity through blogging has been an amazing experience.
6. My ten year high school reunion is this year...so crazy!  It makes me think back to my days of cheerleading!



7. Speaking of ten years...it will be 10 years since I met and started dating my husband.  We started dating my freshmen year of college!  It's definitely been the ten best years of my life!  xo


{Our first "unofficial" date...I had a huge crush!}

8. I have really small feet and hands...especially for my height, which is 5'6".  I wear a size 6.5 or so in shoes and my wedding finger size is a 5 {I think!}.
9. I'm a big night owl...I love staying up late.  Luckily, I've tempered how late I sleep in, but I'm generally not a morning person!
10. I love food....eating at new restaurants and cooking new food is one of my favorite things!
11. I used to be highly allergic to cats and dogs.  Luckily, my mom had us get allergy shots when we were kids.  I am living proof that those work...I don't know what I would do without Mr. Whiskers and Wilson!  ;)



1. What is your profession? I am an advertising account manager for our local paper.  I'm in a fortunate position to work with our key customers...which is an incredibly challenging, yet rewarding experience.  Keeps me on my toes!
2. How would you describe your style? I like to think I have a classic, but sometimes edgy sense of style.  I love blousy tunics with skinnes and boots.  A well-cut dress.  A great pair of shoes {LOVE shoes}.  And unique jewelry. 
3. What one make-up product can you not live without? Hmmm this is a tough one...but I would probably go with mascara.  I have smaller eyes that are not deep-set, so it helps to balance out my face! 
4. If you could be besties with one celebrity, who would it be? I am loving Rachel McAdams lately.  She just seems so down to earth and sincere. 
5. What is your dream vacation? Probably Paris or Italy.  I've never traveled abroad and I'm just dying to get over there to take in the culture, amazing food, and incredible fashion.
6. What magazines do you subscribe to? I actually don't...which is really my bad!  I would save a lot of money if I did since I read People, US Magazine, and inStyle on a regular basis!
7. If you could have a special talent {that you don't currently have}, what would it be?  
Graphic design would be a great talent to have...especially now!  I would open my own Etsy Shop!
8. What is your favorite breakfast food?  I'm all about sweets for breakfast...scones, chocolate chip pancakes, croissants...the list goes on!
9. If you could do anything, what is your dream job?   I think owning my own business...doing something I'm super passionate about is probably everyone's dream job!  I would love to have the luxury of being artistic and having everyone want to buy my product!  :)
11. What is the best piece of advice you've ever received, and who gave it to you? My best friend Amy told me that respect, above all else, is key in a relationship.  It ties into trust, honesty, compatibility and love.  It's given me valuable insight ever since.

According to the rules, I'm supposed to tag 11 people...but I'm tagging all of you instead!!  Let me know if you write a post answering the above questions.  I'd love to see it!

Also I think it's funny that you are 5'6 and have tiny feet. I am 5'4 and have size 9 feet. Everyone used to say that I was going to be tall because of my feet and I just never grew haha.
