Blogger 411 Link UP!

9:11:00 AM

So I am extremely excited about linking up with Becky over at From Mrs. to Mama for her Blogger 411 Link Up today! Want to know more about me?! Well, here's your chance... Oh, & be sure to let me know if you link up and answer these questions too, I'd love to get to know you better!!! :)

1. How long have you been blogging? And what got you started on blogging? Has your blog changed? I have been blogging for about a year now. My blog has changed dramatically since I first started. It was originally just supposed to be a place for me to share my craft and DIY projects, which was my initial reason to start. However as time went on I realized that I wanted more out of the experience so I started doing some research and following other blogs that I really enjoyed & here we are, my new and improved blog that incorporates everything that I am... & I am loving it! :)

2. Did you go to college? If so where, and what did you study? I started out at the community college in my area {St. Louis Community College at Meramec} where I got my Associate's Degree in General Transfer & finished up my Bachelor's at the University of Missouri in St. Louis with degree in English Literature.

3. Where have you traveled? I have been to California, Colorado, Minnesota, Florida, Texas, Kentucky, Louisiana & will be going to Mexico later in August {which I can't wait for!!!!}

4. If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you would buy? A new house most likely!

5. What are your 3 biggest pet peeves? When people chew their food with their mouth open, it drives me insane! When people fold a piece of paper in half but don't press down the entire sheet of paper leaving just the end unfolded a little bit, maybe I'm a bit crazy but I can't help it. Sleeping with the closet door cracked or open, it has to be entirely closed for me to be able to sleep.

6. What is your favorite movie? Oh gosh, this is a hard one, I am such a movie fanatic... I would have to say probably The Sound of Music or The Wizard of Oz!

7. What is your drink of choice; wine, beer, or liquor. Or Water, Soda, Tea? Red wine, preferably a Merlot or a Beer {I do love me some water & tea though too for the non alcoholic choices}

8. What is something you enjoy to do when you have me time? Read, knit or write... All three extremely great "me" time activities

9. If you could have a $10,000 shopping spree to one store, which store would it be? Probably Forever 21 or Francesca's Collections.

10. Share with us an embarrassing moment of your past? Or present. I just did this the other day, I was in the store and this girl looked right at me, said "Melissa!" and started waving, so I waved back... I had no clue who she was but she looked extremely excited... Yeah, turns out that there was her actual friend Melissa standing behind me... I just turned and walked away!

11. What day would you love to relive again? Probably my wedding day, it was one of the best days of my life and I would love it if I could go back and relive it, taking in the parts of the day that I didn't at the time.

12. If your life was turned into a movie... what actor would play you? I would like to think someone like Selena Gomez... She's just young and fun with a quirky side but is able to be serious and sexy when she needs to be. Her personality just seems to be comparable to my own.

13. What are the jobs you had in high school/college/the early years? I worked at Subway from the time I was seventeen until I was 22.

14. Show us a picture from high school or college. 
Sophomore Year Homecoming

15. If you could travel anywhere in the world, all expenses paid, where would you go? Germany, I took German when I was in college and have a pretty good feel for it but just learning about the culture and their way of life makes me want to go there so bad, I would love to spend a couple months just indulging in everything Germany has to offer!

16. Show us the most current picture of you or you, or your family, or anything of meaning to you. 

17. Where do you see your life 5 years from now? Still blogging, of course! I also hope to be a mom & possibly have my first book published *fingers crossed* But more so than that I just see myself being happy with whatever life has to offer... I will do my best to go after all of my dreams, however I am such a big believer in fate so whatever is meant to be, will be in the end! :)

I hope you all enjoyed getting to know me a little bit more & I look forward to getting to know more about you!! Have a great Tuesday!

<3 Melissa
