Real leaders follow.

My Little Life

Following Becoming Briggs, here's Five Question Friday! It may become a weekly event, so get excited! And leave me some thoughts. :D

1. Would you ever vacation alone?

Although I enjoy time by myself, vacations are meant to be experienced with someone else. And life is more fun with the hubby!

2. Do you go the speed limit?

I'm married to the popo. What do you think? ;)

3. Why did you start blogging/following blogs?

I like reading about other people's lives. And I like seeing the small world connections between us all and how we all seem to struggle with the same issues, yet in different ways.

I'm getting better about blogging; I read more than I post!

4. Where do you shop for yourself?

NY&Co., Old Navy, Charlotte Russe. I always head to the bargain racks wherever I shop though. And I've been dubbed the "Fashion Muse" in my family. My mom and sisters won't shop without me. They say I bring all the good bargains to them. They're weird, I know, but they're right. ;)

5. What was the song that you danced your first dance with your spouse to at your wedding...or...what song would you like your first dance to be to?

The First Dance. That was the only "issue" we had while planning the wedding. I asked. Jared said no. I begged. Jared said no. I submitted and dropped it.

Until the rehearsal dinner.

My parents gave us an iPod with our names and wedding date inscribed on the back. {I've wanted an iPod since they came out!} I burst into tears because that's the first thing with our names and wedding date on it, and reality really hit home. Jared leaned over and said, "I'll give you your first dance." I screamed and gave him a huge hug.

We danced to Dave Matthews' Crash. It was fabulous. :)


  1. That first dance story was so sweet! I would have been in tears. lol Keep posting!

  2. Thanks for the shout-out! Ten days 'til we find out if this baby is a he or a she!
