About Me

Today I am linking up with Style Me Swanky with today's post.  Hi to all you new subscribers and followers- thanks for following along Oh, The Places We'll Go!!

1. What time did you get up this morning? 
I usually am up around 7.  Seeing that clock at 7am seems so much more tolerable than 6am.

2. How do you like your steak?
I don't cook a lot of red meat, but I do love a good steak every now and then.  I like mine medium- rare to medium.

3. What was the last movie you saw in the theater?
The Help, and I cried my way through it.  A good cry.  Before that, the last movie I saw was the Blind Side. I don't make it to the theaters very often, and am not a big movie person.

4. What is your favorite TV show(s)?
Modern Family and Next Iron Chef.  Speaking of (!!), Geoffrey Zakarian and Michael Symon totally tweeted me back earlier this week! I tweeted something cheesy about how much fun it was to watch NIC with the camaradie and respect amongst all of the competitors and I can't believe they responded. #swoon #starstruck .  Here's Zarakians!

5. What did you have for breakfast?
I eat the same thing every morning for breakfast... Kashi Go Lean with berries and a cup of coffee. Boring, but easy.  I'm typically not very hungry in the morning.

6. Do you wear glasses or contacts?
Neither!  Though I think I've starting noticing my depth perception is horrible and I may need to take the glass plunge soon.

7. Where is your favorite place to eat?
Um, anywhere in Charleston.  I love Cypress and Trattoria Lucca for special occasions.   We are going to 82 Queen tonight to celebrate the end of the semester and I'm excited to try it.  FIG is next on my bucket list.

8. What kind of vehicle do you drive?
I actually just got some new wheels earlier this fall! I laid my beloved Jeep Grand Cherokee to rest after 10 years and 190,000 miles and have upgraded to a Volvo XC90!

9. What are your favorite clothes this season?
Very, very much into blouses. This was an early Christmas present when we were in NY and I am obsessed.

10. Where would you want to retire?
Anywhere coastal South Carolina. Our families are here and I just love the Lowcountry.

11. What is your desktop photo?
A wedding photo, of course.

12. What is your favorite sport to watch?
Gamecock Football!

13. How many siblings?
One fabulous little sister.. We are 2 1/2 years apart and very close.  And I guess technically I now have twin sister-in-laws, too :)

14. Favorite pastime/ hobby?
Being with friends and family, cooking, blogging, and of course playing games

15. Are you a morning or night person?
Morning 100%.  The wheel falls of the wagon and Cinderella turns into a pumpkin about 9:30.

16. Do you have any pets?
Not yet..... BUT we are scheduled to have the "dog talk" soon.  I think a puppy for my 25 birthday this February sounds like a perfect gift to me. I would love a golden cocker retriever, but they come with quite a hefty price tag.
17. What is your favorite color?
Blue blue blue blue blue. Love it.

18. Any pet peeves?
Ha.  I have a tendency to be quite neuratic so yes, I do have some pet peeves.

19. Favorite flower?
Hydragenas or tulips.  Hint, hint, honey!

20. How many times did you fail your driving test?
This is embarassing. I failed the written portion the first time I took it on my 15th birthday.  Who knew that a flashing red light meant you had to stop?!?  I was so embarassed I had a breakdown in the DMV.  My parents took pity on me and let me tell all my friends that I couldn't get my license because I forgot to take my social security card. I went back the next day ("with my card"/ after studying all night) and passed.  Haha!!

Tell me about you!!!


  1. I love 82 queen! Their shrimp and grits are my favorite in town. Hope you liked it!

  2. I love that cream silk top! So precious :-) And FIG is one of my favorite places in Charleston, let me know if you try it! I live in Columbia, so I'm down in charleston all the time

    Thanks for stopping by a creative day!
