And finally, Britt from Living in the Moment gave me this. She must be delusional since I am the MOST heinous dresser of all times. Once you meet me this summer you will understand. It's a bit like your hippie dress in the grocery store. :D But thanks sweetie! I shall try to honor it. And once I get skinny, I shall be preppy and dress accordingly!
1. Who is your style icon?
Hmm, gonna have to go with I HAVE NO CLUE SINCE I'M NOT FASHIONABLE! I like things like khakis, jeans, polos (oxfords and pique cotton), flats, wallabees, and generally anything else that is comfortable. I am a teacher. I am up/down all day. On the floor. Etc. I don't "do" cool or hip. I am pretty Vineyard Vines. So whoever dresses like that is my style icon. You know who I think dresses cute and is so cute and preppy (but I couldn't rock this cause I don't have a bajillion dollars to spend on Lilly) is Monograms and Manicures-Hopsy. Wish I had her allowance.
2. What is your favorite socialite book?
Like my friend Britt, I was like, "What? What is this?" If by socialite book, you mean Tori Spelling, then right on. I have read all of her "books" (this term is used loosely-for the love, she is DONNA MARTIN. If that is not what a socialite book is, then I'm stumped. I do love me some Miss Manners and Amy Vanderbuilt.
3. What is your favorite party theme?
Ummmm, again, Britt is delusional. I don't do "themes" so I'm not real sure of my fave. Anything with toile. Does that count? Gah, I suck at being preppy!
4. What is your go-to Halloween costume?
Disappointment number 4-I don't do Halloween. I used to always be a hippie or a cheerleader. When I was 10-17. Now, no Halloween cause A) the dogs LOSE IT! and B) husband is always at work closing the books at the end of the month. So I'm not Halloweening alone.
How in the WORLD is this a preppy question???
5. What is the extravagance you just can't live without?
Diet coke, trashy mags, and pedis. The end. If I lived in a box, I would work for caffeine and OPI polish.
6. Who is the living person you admire?
My mom. Girlfriend has it GOING ON! She has had a lot of stuff to go through, the least of which being raising me and crackella sissy. She works SO hard and is STILL working. And she still has time to farm her crops on FB and knit and sew her grandbabies dresses and write emails and make dinners and get up at 5 to look cute for her students. Dang momma!
And also, my friend Jill who is like srsly SUPER MOM. She makes it look so easy. She could have 4-5 kids and rock it~!
7. What is my greatest fear?
Something happening to Emma or husband. I have to stop thinking about this. Srsly, it is ridic.
8. What's the trait you dislike about yourself?
I am very controlling and like to do things MY way. I will refuse help just so I can do it. Also, I am a worrier. I have let a lot go since having Emma, but still will be up way too late to get stuff done because it must be done according to my specifications.
9. Which talent would you most like to have?
Is saving money a talent? Cause I need to find that one soon...............
1o. What is my greatest achievement?
Besides getting two degrees in 4 1/2 years? My family. I am so proud of them.
11. Who are the 10 people I'd like to tag with the Preppy Mafia award?
Dang, no more tagging/linking please. Anyone who is preppy, please repost!
Two people I can think of immediately are Kim at The Cone Family and Lindsey Douglas at The Douglas Drama. Also, Simple Yet Classic and Sweet Tea Diaries. And my brother at Macon Dinner. Srsly, he is sooo preppy. Love you bro! And, while I am at it, I imagine if I ever met J in real life, she would be a total prep. She is so cool and calm and classic seeming. I puffy heart our conversations and think she would embody prepsterness.
Dang I practically tagged half the list anyway. Now, I am off to leave comments or emails to the people I graced with an award. Hmmm, do I really have to do that too? I'm tired........
Hope you are all excited about the weekend!
