10 Questions for Monday

One of my favorite things to read on other blogs are little Q&A's where you feel like you are getting to know the writer behind the blog a little better. If you want to read more about my love for all things Lilly, Sara Kat was so sweet to feature me on her blog a couple weeks ago! You can read more about that HERE!

I have been wanting to do one of these for so long and finally got a chance to sit down today and write down some questions and answers. I think it would be so fun for all of you readers to share you answers to, whether it is to every question or just pick one or two that you want to answer!

1) What inspires you?
I love to look for inspiration in nature! Whether it's the cotton candy colors in a summer sunset or bright, bold blooms, I think some of God's natural creations are some of the most amazing things! (I originally answered this question on The Pink Clutch blog for Paige's Bar Cart feature!)

2) Favorite Disney movie?
The Parent Trap! Back when it came out, I wanted to be just like Lindsay Lohan... things have changed a little since then but I can still quote almost the whole movie!

3) If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
I've always wanted to travel to Greece and Italy! My brother just took a trip there last month with one of his friends and I loved living vicariously through his pictures!

4) What is your favorite thing to cook?
I love trying new recipes but I'm pretty sure anything with avocado always turns out delicious so I love to make Mexican dishes. It's been a while since I've made this One Pan Mexican Quinoa, but it always turns out so yummy and is probably one of the easiest things to make!

5) Favorite season?
I love spring when it's starting to get warm and the flowers are blooming but I've always been a summer loving girl at heart!

6) Favorite place(s) to shop?
Of course I love Lilly Pulitzer, Nordstrom, J.Crew, and Amazon for everything else. Tuckernuck has one of the cutest collections of clothing and accessories and I basically want to buy every single thing (this clutch is so cute and on sale!!) I also love boutiques like Design Darling (Mackenzie Horan's shop), Waiting on MarthaFurbish Studio and my favorite Savannah based Emily McCarthy Shoppe!

7) The last thing you bought?
More of this self tanning mousse that I swear by! If you know me, you know I try and stay out of the sun as much as I can but I hate being so pale in the middle of the summer so this stuff is key!!

8) What's at the top of your wishlist?
This Gray Malin x S'well water bottle, this pretty palm printed pullover that would be great when the temperatures start to cool down, and these lace up tassel sandals that would go with everything and are a little different from my every day Jack Rogers! I also can't get enough of the jewelry from Mackenzie's Design Darling boutique (love these earrings!!) which is all 20% off with code SUMMERLOVE!

Love these Design Darling necklaces! I just bought the pink tassel one and have worn it so much!

9) What's in your Netflix queue?
I have recently started watching The West Wing, which I am loving so far! It's a good political drama that isn't too serious and I can multitask with it on in the background and still understand what's going on. One of these days I want to start House of Cards but I've heard that's one that requires 100% of my attention so that may have to wait. Of course, The Office is always one that my husband and I love to watch together when nothing else is on and we need a good laugh. That show never gets old!

10) Favorite Olympic sport?
While I do really love watching the women's gymnastics, I think swimming has to be my favorite! I used to be a part of a swim team when I was younger so it's all a little nostalgic for me and always gives me that feeling where I want to jump in the pool and swim (it's been probably about 15 years since I swam real laps though!) I also just love to watch the relays, when they're really swimming as part of a team and for the USA. Watching the men's 4x100m freestyle relay win gold last night was just the best!

I would love to hear what some of your answers are in the comments!

  1. Love this! I had to chuckle, it's a running joke in our house how much my husband loves the West Wing. He's on his third round of watching the entire thing and I've never so much as watched half a season. Maybe it's time to do that this round! Also, I just got a tassel necklace like the one above from The Tiny Tassel, check her out, she has the cutest stuff for great prices.
