So here we are at Day 1: A picture of yourself with ten facts.

...and my ten facts: 

1.  If I had to describe a perfect day, it would be spent on a boat, feeling the sun on my shoulders and the salt on my cheeks, with food/drinks/friends  ...oh, and some Jimmy Buffet music. 

2.  I recently started wearing my retainer at night when I sleep.  When I was younger, I was always so bad about wearing it because it's uncomfortable and I can't talk with it in my mouth. Said retainer is currently MIA because apparently I spit it out in the middle of the night.  Must find asap. 

3.  I do not have Beiber fever.  I think it's weird that grown women are obsessed with a fifteen year old boy.

4.  I've only been on a plane one time.

5.  The only places I've lived in SC have been on its coast.  I've lived in Myrtle Beach, Charleston, and the Hilton Head area. 

6.  My biggest vice is white chocolate.  I could eat a whole bag of morsels in one sitting ...easy.

7.  As a child, I always wanted a kitten but my Dad never let me have one  ...and now Brandon won't let me have one.  I've lost hope.  I want a white persian, in case anyone wants to "accidentally" leave one outside of my door. Then I'd be forced to save its life and give it a home.

8.  Lists dictate my life.  I jot down every task that I need to complete, or else it will not get done.

9.  Brandon recommended this next fact:  I still have an iPod that has a dial on it.  
I gave him a funny look and he said, "Come on, that's old school.  Everything is touch screen these days!"
 He knows I'd rather spend my money on new shoes than technology. 

10.   I don't need contacts or glasses for everyday, but I do have an astigmatism.  It bothers me when I drive at night.  I got glasses a few years ago to wear when I drive, but I rarely wear them.  They hurt my eyes more than they help! 


ps. I'll still keep up with my random posts here and there, but the photo challenge will be (hopefully) daily through the next 30 days!


  1. I DO NOT have Bieber fever either. I'm with ya girl! I envy that you live on the coast! My dream is to move to the beach one day...oh, one day! Love your blog!

  2. Cute picture! I can't wait for boating season to begin again! I'm ready to be tan!!

    I can't stand the little Bieber kid. Ahh!!

    And I too have astigmatism and have the same problem with driving at night, especially dusk for whatever reason.

  3. I'm right there with you on #3 and #8.

  4. SO I am going to jump on this bandwagon for the 30 day challenge. I too think the Beeb fever is weird and something everyone thinks is a fad...poor kid! haha. I never wore my retainer after my braces came off annnd I try too now (ok hardly never) but still...my teeth are trying to move! Ew!!!! I too would rather spend my dimes and pennies on shoes and clothes rather than technology! My parents finally broke down and got me an Iphone because I had convinced myself that I DID NOT need that, my Jesus Nokia was just fine and served its purpose, nooow I kinda think otherwise but still - YES! SHOES! haha. Love your facts annnnd I think you should totallllly get a white persian, I HATE cats but now, THOSE are pretty!! It is like that one that was always on the Friskas commercials :) Tell Brandon you rescued her....it is just a litte white lie....literally :) hehe. ANNND I hate you for always living on the coast!!!!! Hilton Head - went there this summer....bet that was so rough and Charleston, man! My best friend lives in MB now.....poooopie DOO on both of you!

  5. i love this idea! i'm going to try to do this as well! love your blog - my parents have a place in HHI even though we're from MD! it's so pretty! xoxo

  6. oooh i might steal this. so glad to know i'm not the only girl who enjoys photos of herself with fish/shrimp/creatures. hehe

  7. I totally agree with your perfect day. Hurry up warm weather! I still have the old school ipod too. It works, why would I spend money on a new one?!

  8. new follower! love your blog and love that you LOVE jimmy buffet! haha he is a great man

    i absolutely LOVE hilton head island and charleston..such beautiful places..you're so lucky to live there! it's cooooold up here in Boston! :)

    xoxox looking forward to reading more!

  9. I'm here from Jess' blog and your list was a great intro to your site! My husband has the original iPod, complete with a dial, and it still works!

  10. 1. just discovered your blog and it's adorable!
    2. Your perfect day is mine too. I would love Jimmy Buffet's life basically because I'm pretty sure that's his every day

  11. Seriously... My next door neighbor has like 30 cats, I'll snatch a kitten and fedex it your way! Hehehe.

  12. Being on a boat is also my happy place. I think about it when I'm getting my teeth cleaned, waiting in long lines, etc. You remind me so much of my little sis Cameron, I think you girls would be besties. Too bad she doesn't have a blog!

  13. very very much with you on number 3! and now i'm jumping on the bandwagon as well! a cute idea.

  14. Wow!!! I have the Ipod nano from like 2 years ago I never thought it was out of date with the wheel!!? i see people at the Gym with them all the time! hmmmmmm...

    So where was your one Plane ride to?

  15. I saw this on her blog, too--thinking bout doing it! I was just talking about Beiber today..about how much I DON'T GET IT! And don't worry, my Ipod is the old school Nano! Today, at the gym, I had to turn it on by moving the "hold" button back and forth about a 100 times b/c the center button WON'T work, ha! Love your blog, btw!

  16. YAY!! Loved learning more about you pretty lady:)

  17. Ohh I really like this idea! I may have to use it. :) Fun reading your list and learning more.

  18. #7 - MEEE TOO! I actually included that in my post today. My mom told me she was allergic, and I found out that was a lie when I was in college!
    Vineyard Loveknots
