Hi all! I feel like lately all I have been posting are outfits, thrift finds, and links to fun stuff. While that is all good and dandy I feel like I have given up my voice slightly in the process. When I started this blog I had no clue what direction I wanted to take it in, the possibilities are endless, but I think I am starting to get in to the groove of things. However, I feel like I should interject some of my life into the mix from time to time. So today I thought I would tell you a little bit about me to get you caught up or acquainted. You may not care, who knows...I just feel like rambling honestly. So here are three random facts about me...
1.) I was born in Rhode Island - the smallest state in the U.S.A. My entire extended family still live out there and we visit every few years. I miss the ocean so much. Chicagoland is great and all but it lacks the hills, trees, and WAVES. I miss the small things like eating clamcakes (google them - YUM!) and walking on the beach.
2.) I have been fortunate enough to travel to - England, Greece, Italy, France, Germany, China, Japan, Canada, Hawaii, St.Thomas, and across parts of the U.S. . I hope to one day make it to Egypt - that would be my dream destination. I want to see the pyramids more than anything.
3.) My mom and I are very into meeting celebrities. I have met Ellen Degeneres
- and have been to her show twice. The first time she flew a group of us out of Chicago to L.A. to film a Chicago show. It was incredible. She paid for the plane tickets, our hotel The Roosevelt, her crew took us out bowling, and she gave us Ellen Undies! On top of that I got to shake her hand and take a picture with her during a commercial break. It was awesome! The second time was last spring. My mom had won tickets so we flew out and made a trip of it. I got to dance with Ellen for a second too :] Needless to say we LOVE Ellen.
I jumped on Orlando Bloom's
car in England. Alright that is complete over dramatization of what happened but it sounds more fun. My mom and I saw his play, In Celebration, and met a wild lady from the Netherlands who had been to the play 5 times because she was obsessed with him - yikes! Anywho, she knew where he came out after the show and told us - not creepy at all. So we checked it out after the show and there he was about to get in his car/signing autographs. So I aggressively leaned over the trunk to get an autograph. He was really nice.
And then there was Johnny. Johnny Depp
of course! That is a blurry pic of him above. He was filming Public Enemies in a theater nearby my hometown so my mother and I decided to go and check it out. Three hours in the rain later I got to shake his hand!! I told him I loved his work, he looked into my eyes and said "thanks love". We totally had a moment.
Now that you all think I am a crazed celeb stalker...
4.) I LOVE Halloween. I go all out for it. I am excited for this October to roll around so that I can share with you guys some fun DIY Halloween costumes. In the mean time, here is pea as a banana split :] She was so ashamed.
I planned on posting more facts but I feel like this is TMI for one afternoon. Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!
