Questions from Jennifer
 
1. What celebrity do you identify with the most?
A mixture of Hannah and Marni from Girls - I know the characters aren't celebs but my life is definitely just as random and absurd as theirs.
 
2. What is the most popular search term/phrase that drives traffic to your blog?
Sequins! :)
 
3. What are your biggest pet peeves?
Loud breathing, loud chewing, people being RUDE
 
4. Do you have any scars with really get stories behind them? If so, how did you get them?
As a matter of fact, yes.  I have a HUGE scar down the back of my right calf.  Long story short - extremely drunken night in college, was dared to kick in a glass window...so I tried.  1 surgery, 5 days in the hospital, 1 month in a cast and 4 months of physical therapy.  WOOPS.
 
5. What is your favorite nail polish brand and color?
I have always loveddddd OPI - Lincoln Park After Dark
 
6. Is there a specific topic that you might consider yourself an expert? If yes, what are some of the things most people don't know about it.
Well event planning is definitely my thing.  I have learned how to do some fantastic things from my job - like creating baller flower arrangements, taking stains out of EVERYTHING and how to calm down even the craziest of family members.  Things people don't know?  How rewarding the job is, that wedding planners can actually make great money (and work from home!), and I am nothing like JLo in The Wedding Planner. 
 
7. What terrifies you the most?
Being alone
 
8. What makes you the happiest?
Being with Ross, my family and my best friends (and Seamus my dog...it's pronounced Shay-mus)
 
9. Who do you admire and what qualities about that person make you admire them?
My dad - he is hard working, unbelievably intelligent, caring, warm hearted and hilarious.  We get along better than anything and he has given me the perfect example of what I want in a husband and father for my future children. 
 
10. Sweet or Salty?
Salty!
 
11. What is your best organization tip?
Lists.  I make lists for everything...from going to Target to cleaning my house.  It just keeps me motivated and on track.
