A to Z, All About Me!

Shirt: Forever 21 | Necklace: Charming Charlie’s | Hairpin: Sandy a la Mode | Jeans: Charlotte Russe | Shoes: Target

Hope all you amazing mother’s out there have had an amazing day! My mom is one of the most amazing woman I have ever known and I strive to be just like her when I become one. Even though we live so many miles away from each other right now, I always feel her support right next to me. I love you mom! 🙂 This outfit post reminds me of my mom for two reasons, the first one being that I just gave her some of my hairpins for Mother’s Day and the second being that flowers always remind me of her.

I was recently tagged by jdavissquared, another fellow local blogger, in a fun little “get to know me” type of post. It’s been awhile since I’ve just shared some tidbits about myself. So here goes, a chance to learn a little bit more about me through the alphabet!! And if you haven’t checked out her blog, it’s got some rocking inspiration, recipes, tutorials and just tidbits from her life, so… go check it out!

    Cute top! And what a fun idea. I think I will play along in my next entry 🙂

    I love this meme! For whatever reason, I pictured you in the event planning business – not IT or healthcare 🙂 Lol! And I’m with you, I’m all about yellow gold these days. I think it suits my skin tone best 🙂

  9. May 9, 2011 / 7:17 am

    ohh what fun!!

  10. May 9, 2011 / 8:08 am

    You look so pretty, love this outfit! I’ve always loved heels with jeans, it’s amazing how a pair of heels can change the whole look and feel of an outfit! Enjoy your Monday!

  11. May 9, 2011 / 8:22 am

    Ahhh, I love it! So glad you played along! I had a hard time picking a favorite color too, and that underwear line…???…I have no idea what that was asking either!

    My husbands begs, pleads and prays for a king size bed. I think our queen is just fine, but he is envious of all the additional room we could have. I also don’t have a natural gift for cleaning and when I do clean I have to be in the mood to do it, which doesn’t occur often!

  13. May 9, 2011 / 10:47 am

    I always think of my Mum when I see magnolias too, they are her favourite.

    Loved your answers!

  14. May 9, 2011 / 11:45 am

    You don’t dislike any veggies lady? I wish I could say that!

  21. May 9, 2011 / 9:49 pm

    The movie is Clueless of course!! And I hate to clean too–my dream is to one day pay someone else to do it.
    And you look so pretty and ready for this crazy summery weather we’re having!

  22. May 9, 2011 / 11:54 pm

    Love this post, Sandy! I’ve always been curious about fun little details like these. Honestly, I almost didn’t comment — you had a perfect 26 comments (one for each letter of the alphabet) before mine. Quite appropriate, no?

  23. May 10, 2011 / 9:21 am

    Loved getting to know you better Sandy!

  24. May 10, 2011 / 4:54 pm
