I Got Tagged!

Ok, so I am a little behind on writing this post! I got tagged by 3 of my most favorite bloggers, so how can I refuse! Thanks to Allison, Jackie and Lindsey for tagging me! I decided not to tag any particular people. I want everyone to do it!

Rules of the Game
1. You must post the rules.
2. Post eleven fun facts about yourself.
3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and then create eleven new questions to ask the people you've tagged.
4. Tag eleven people and link them on your post.
5. Let them know you've tagged them!
My 11 Facts:
1. I love being part of a family business! We all get along great and it's like your around your best friends all day long!
2. I love all things nautical. My Granddaddy was a ship builder, so I've grown up around boats and the water my whole life.
3. My wedding dress was the first dress I ever tried on! I tried on several after that but I always went back to it.
4. I took interior design and drafting classes in high school and loved it. I was the top of my class and really thought that was my future career, but when I got to college, I changed my mind about 5 times.
5. I really like antiques, especially jewelry and furniture! My rings are an antique setting, and I couldn't be more in love with them!
6. I know some American Sign Language, but wouldn't trust my abilities in a conversation!
7. I've only been a bridesmaid once. It was for my cousins wedding and I loved my dress at first, but then HATED it when it came time to actually wear it.
8. I get anxious going places I never have before, especially out of town locations.

  1. I love throwing on a sweater, jeans, and a cute scarf. Definitely my favorite outfit! The Sperry's were from Off Broadway shoes. Do you have one of those near you??

  2. I looooove nautical! And I'm a bridesmaid for my first time!

  3. My wedding dress was the first one that I tried on, too! I think it's the initial feeling that you get putting on a wedding dress for the first time that makes you fall in love with it.
