GET TO KNOW ME TAG!

GET TO KNOW ME TAG!

FullSizeRender (1)

  1. NAMED AFTER ANYONE? No, I mean my middle name is the same as my dads…but I would still say no.
  2. LAST TIME I CRIED? Oh goodness, I don’t know, when I watched the end of Gilmore Girls (the regular series).
  3. DO I WANT KIDS? Ummm….I’m not dead set on having children, but I’m not 100% against it either.
  4. IF I WAS ANOTHER PERSON, WOULD I BE FRIENDS WITH ME? My friend Ameera and I joke about this one. Honestly, I don’t know. I mean I think I’m a good person and a great friend, but I’m not super trusting of others so it’s kind of hard to get to know me at times. So I suppose If I was someone else I would probably give up on trying to break the walls down and be friends with me (it usually takes a while). Lol. That’s terrible, I know.
  5. FIRST THING I NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE? I mean I guess I notice their physical features first; more specifically their smile and their style.
  6. AM I SARCASTIC? HAHAHAHA. Yes, yes I am.
  7. WHAT IS MY EYE COLOR? Green. Yaaasssss. I love light eyes.
  8. DO I PREFER A SCARY MOVIE OR A HAPPY ENDING? Well this one is insanely easy, I’m definitely a happy ending kind of girl, I just love a love story.
  9. WHAT IS MY FAVORITE SMELL? As far as perfume goes, I would say Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel. If we are talking about anything else, I love when David wears anything by Dolce & Gabbana…and I absolutely love the smell of honeysuckle and fresh cut grass.
  10. THE FURTHEST I’VE BEEN FROM HOME? California, so not super far in the grand scheme of things.
  11. DO I HAVE A SPECIAL TALENT? Not really…I mean, I was a competitive dancer for years, so I guess that’s a talent, but I think that’s it.
  12. WHERE WAS I BORN? Right here in Atlanta, GA!
  13. DO I HAVE ANY HOBBIES? Does blogging count? I like to get out and throw the ball around and attend as many concerts as I can in a years time…are any of those hobbies?
  14. DO I HAVE ANY PETS? Yes, yes I do. Her name is Ginge. She’s a little firecracker kitten. Sometimes she loves me, other times she does not. I will leave a picture of her at the bottom of the page so you can meet her, she’s a real treat!
  15. DO I HAVE ANY SIBLINGS? Technically, no. I’m the only child (yaaassssss for being spoiled). I always wanted an older brother but that was obviously not on the table. Despite not having any REAL siblings, my cousin Jordan counts. We are as close as sisters and bless her heart, she’ll never get rid of me!
  16. WHAT DO I WANT TO BE WHEN I GROW UP? If I’m being 100% honest, I want to be a stay at home wife. With that being said, I wouldn’t mind running a blog from home. If that doesn’t pan out, then maybe a school counselor!
  17. WHO WAS MY FIRST BEST FRIEND? Shout out to MA! We are still besties to this day!
  18. HOW TALL AM I? Not tall. I’m only 5’3. :/
  19. FAVORITE DRINK? Probably Coca-Cola. I mean come on, I live in ATL.
  20. MY FAVORITE ANIMAL? Awww, this one is too hard. I love animals. I love cats, alpacas, dogs, tigers, monkeys…I just love them all!
  21. HOW MANY BOYFRIENDS HAVE I HAD? 4.
  22. WHAT IS MY FASHION SENSE? Ummm, I don’t know. I’m a pretty casual dresser. I love athliesure; but I also like jeans, V-necks, leather jackets, sneakers…etc.
  23. CURRENT FAVORITE SONG? Ooooo, I don’t know. I love a lot of songs. “Getting Over You” by Jackie Lee, “Dive” by Ed Sheeran, and “Violin” by Amos Lee (not new, but it’s been on repeat).
  24. LAST THING THAT I BOUGHT? Food, but if we’re talking anything other than food, I bought some wireless headphones and Friday Night Lights (the book) for my vacation!
  25. MY FAVORITE HOLIDAY? Christmas, hands down. And then 4th of July!
  26. AM I MARRIED? Nope, not yet…but one day.
  27. FAVORITE TV SHOWS? New Girl (please come back for one more season), Friday Night Lights (I’m obsessed), Gilmore Girls (no surprise here), and Dawson’s Creek (don’t you dare judge me).
  28. PC OR MAC? I have a PC and I love it. Nothing against Macs, mama just can’t afford all that.
  29. CAN I COOK? I can definitely get by. I’m not the best, but I’m certainly not the worst.
  30. WHAT IS MY FAVORITE BOOK? Well as I’ve mentioned before, I don’t read very often and what I do read is pretty specific; but I’ll list a few books that have been staples for me: Silver Linings Playbook, Catcher in the Rye, The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star, Talking as Fast as I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls (and Everything in Between).

So those are some fun facts about me! Anything else you wanna know, just leave it below!
