Getting to know you...

Joy over at The Sowell Life tagged me in a post yesterday with some questions. What a great way to get to know the person behind the blog a little better! 

Below are Joy's questions for me. 

1. Out of the 24 hours in a day, what is your favorite time on the clock and why?

     If it is Monday-Friday.... 5:00 PM because it is time to go home! 

2. What is your favorite magazine to get in the mail or buy in the store?

     I love getting Women's Healthy and Real Simple in the mail. I also like to buy Cooking Light at the   grocery store if the front page has an irresistible picture on the cover! 

3. Twitter or Facebook?

     It used to be Facebook...however it is more Twitter now. Facebook is getting on my nerves and all the blogging buddies are on Twitter.

4. What's your best memory of high school?

     Graduating. Haha. 

5. What's your go to website for shopping?

     I have been looking at Kiki La Rue forever. I have not bought anything yet, I have never bought any clothing pieces that I haven't tried on in it makes me nervous but I really want to order something from there soon. I also constantly check out Loft, White House Black Market and Kohls to see their new stuff and if I want to make a trip to the store!

6. A blogger who inspires you?

     I don't really have just one blogger who "inspires me." I do have several that are an inspiration. I can tell you that Mama Laughlin is the first blog that I started reading. I stumbled across her on Pinterest when I was pinning weight loss stuff. Her story was very inspiring, and then I started reading her daily posts about other stuff than weight. I saw all the people on her side bar and sort of discovered blog land. I decided immediately I wanted to be a part of it!

7. Who is your celebrity crush?

     I am pretty sure we all know it is Justin Timberlake. Duh! Though, he needs to go back to his old look. I am not a huge fan of his new hair do.

8. What's a book you'd recommend to read?

     One of my all time favorite books is Tuesdays with Morrie. So many life lessons in that book. Another one I think everyone should read is The Five Love Languages. It is so important to understand that there are different ways that people like to show love and receive love. It may help you understand your partner better. Currently, I am reading the Harry Potter books. This is my first time reading the books, I have never seen the movies either. I understand what all the hype was about now, they are pretty awesome! I just finished the first book over the weekend and can't wait to dive into the second one!

9. A favorite recipe you love to make?

     One of my favorite recipes to make is Pork Medallions. They are AMAZING! They take a lot of work, but it is totally worth it. Next time I make them, I will take pictures of the process so I can post the recipe on the bloggy. I am sure my husband wouldn't object to me making them!

10. Your favorite app on your phone?

     My favorite or the most used? The most used app is probably Twitter. I check it multiple times a day. One of my favorite apps is CocoPPa. You can download super fun backgrounds, lock screens, and pretty app images to your phone for free! I never get bored with my phone when I can change so many things about it. 

11. You've got an afternoon kid free and job free, what would you do?

     I would probably go shopping! I love to take a few hours and wonder around aimlessly through some stores with no real purpose. Retail therapy...gotta love it. Just yesterday my co-worker and I played at Nordstrom Rack on our lunch break. I may or may not have come home with a pair of shoes...the picture below isn't them but aren't those cute?!

12. The restaurant you always crave?

     When I am at work, I love Ashley Mac's for lunch. They have the best chicken salad and baby blue salad...and a to die for sour cream biscuit! In general, I usually crave Mexican or a great hamburger! My favorite burger places in Birmingham are: 26, Five, Tavern on the Summit, and Mudtown.
