Hi friends! Happy Tuesday! I was thrilled to be "tagged" in Simply Sarah Style's "Getting to Know You" game! So let's get to it...here's how it works.

Game Rules:
1. You must post the rules

11 Fun Facts About Me:
1.  I'm totally addicted to reality TV. Sad, but true.
2.  I'm a former pageant girl (see that post here).
3.  Since I was born and raised in Savannah, GA, I am totally obsessed with all things nautical and coastal. I can't help it. It's in my blood. My home is filled with nautical decor. It's my little retreat.
4.  I love sending handwritten notes to friends and family for no reason other than to say "hello."
5.  I was on the opening team for the Georgia Aquarium, the largest aquarium in the world. I also served as the "voice" of the Aquarium. I recorded the entire phone messaging and ticketing system.
6.  I never changed my major. I always knew I wanted to work in Public Relations and Marketing. I majored in PR and minored in Marketing.
7.  I adore traveling and exploring new cuisines. My favorite cuisine is Mexican. Italian is a close second.
8.  I have an unhealthy relationship with my Mac Book Pro. Best. Thing. Ever. 
9.  Being a vocalist, I used to enter karaoke contests while in college to win extra spending money.
10. I rode and showed horses for over ten years.
11. I love anything sour or tart, especially candy!

11 Questions From Sarah:
1.   What made you want to start a blog? I started a blog for a couple of reasons. First and foremost, I love to write. Starting a blog gave me an outlet for that. Secondly, it's a great way for family and friends near and far, to keep up with the Husband and me. Before starting a blog of my own, I read a ton of blogs and last summer, I decided to start my own.

2.   What are your top three blogs to read? I have many favorites but if I had to pick the top three, they would include Simply Sarah Style, Monograms and Manicures, and Analyze This.

3.   What are your favorite things to "pin" on Pinterest? I love, love, love to pin fabulous fashion, home decor and recipes.

4.   Where are your favorite places to shop for home decor? I love to shop at Pottery Barn, Crate and Barrel, World Market and of course TJ Maxx/HomeGoods.

5.   Where are your favorite places to shop for clothing bargains? TJ Maxx/Ross/Marshalls, Macy's clearance rack, and Target.

6.   What are your favorite color combinations? Pink and Green, Navy and White, Turquoise and Pink/Coral. Pretty much anything paired with Pink, I love!

7.   Do you collect anything? Wine and champagne corks. I hope to make a cork board soon.

8.   What is your favorite thing to cook/bake? Anything in the crock pot, cookies and cupcakes (although I don't bake much in fear of over consumption on my part!)

9.   In what ways do you connect with other bloggers? When I find a blogger I really like, I will usually drop them an email to let them know how much I enjoy their blog. Everyone loves to get a nice email! I also really enjoy commenting on their posts.

10. What is  your favorite holiday? Easter. Always has been, always will be. I just love it!

11. What, if any, is the most recent thing you have made from Pinterest? I made this!

This project involved a drill and special drill bit, which made it a wonderful Daddy-Daughter Project. We did several different size bottles and colors. It was a blast! A step by step post is coming soon. Stay tuned...
