I'm linking with MyLittleLife for 5 Question Friday. :)

My Little Life

1. Do you sing karaoke? If so, what is your go to song?
I karaoke only when I'm with a group, usual girls for some reason! ;) I think the last song I sang was "When God Fearin' Women get the Blues" by Martina. Fabulous, heel stompin', girl power song!!

2. What is your favorite coffee drink?
Yes, my maiden name is Coffey, and I do not like coffee. BUT I have found one drink I can tolerate. Peppermint Mocha. Mmmm. Very good. So good that you can barely taste the espresso! That's the point, right? :)

3. If you could choose your own name, what would it be?
When I was little, I would have answered this question with YES!! Let me be Samantha or Charlotte or Lindsey. But, now, I love my name, Lydia DiCristina Coffey Pierce. It's unique and represents me and both sides of my family. Lydia is from the book of Acts in the Bible and was a seller of purple cloth (My fave color!). DiCristina is my great-grandmother's maiden name. She was French and married into an Italian family, Gargano, (Mom's fam). Coffey is the Irish side of my family. Hence the strawberry-blonde hair and fair skin. Now Pierce has joined my name. Maybe it's Irish too?? I need to do research on that… 

4. Were you ever bullied?
Yes. By my sisters. I love them, but they still pick on me! And, no, I'm not bitter… :)

5. How often do you eat fast food?
Too often!! Jared and I both work crazy shift schedules so eating out is just plain convenient. We need to plan meals better in order to cook and pack dinner before we go to work. Any tips to help me succeed in this area?? I always feel like we're eating the same meals over and over and over again.

We came to Columbus to see family and friends. We had a wonderful dinner last night and a dessert extravaganza at my BFF's house. Lots of pics coming soon!! :D

Decorating 911!!

I need help. Decorating help. I have a huge blank wall in our dining room and I have no idea what to do with it. None. Nada. Zilch.

Here are pics from every angle. What would you do if this was your dining room?? I need ideas, peeps! Please. and Thank You. :)

Here's the frontal view. I'm standing in the living room.

Another angle.

From the foyer/front door hallway.

Another angle. That's the kitchen by the way… 

Taken from the bedroom door.

I don't know what style I have. I like a modern antique look. Vintage, but not "old," Jared's not such a fan. I like the antique maps/old ship look complete with luggage and a rustic feel. Does this help any? Any and all suggestions/ideas/cries of outrage are greatly appreciated! :)

I need a name. Technically, the blog needs a name.

Our blog needs a name. A one-of-a-kind blog name that no one else has. I've thought and thought and thought and even googled adjectives that start with the letter "P." And all I've come up with is...


Absolutely nothing! So I need your help. Help me think of a trendy name for our blog. Something catchy. Something that involves our name, Pierce; or our occupations, popo and wedding planner; or our love for college football, he's a Rebel and I'm a Bulldog (they don't always get along! :); or how I'm the author and Jared's merely the subject of my musings. {Haha! JK. I'm sure he would write if I showed him how. :)}

I work best when I brainstorm with other peeps so let's get to 'storming! :)

Found a new favorite.

Shanty2Chic is a blog written by two sisters that explore cheap ways to decorate their homes. I was blog hopping tonight and found this blog and fell in love with it!! I love to bargain shop so I am all over turning something cheap into something tasteful. Check it out and let me know what you think! 

Have you found cool blogs like this one? Share the love and let me know! :)


My Little Life

Doing it twice makes it a tradition. Look for it again next Friday! :)

1. What are you most afraid of?
18 wheelers, bridges, drowning. CLOWNS!! I can't even watch that WalMart commercial. They're just. plain. scary.

2. Do you use a flat iron or curling iron?
Flat iron now that I'm rockin' the short hair. I loved my curling iron when my hair was long.

3. Hands-free or phone to the ear?

Phone to ear unless I'm driving then it's on speaker. One con of my iPhone is its speaker stinks compared to my Blackberry.
4. Do you have a matching bedroom set?
Working on it! We have the bed and new mattresses. Jared has a hand me down dresser and my dresser matches the guest bed. 

5. Do you believe in the paranormal?

As in ghosts? No, not really. Although there is a ghost that lives in Callaway Hall on the campus of MUW. Just spend the weekend there; Mary will say hello! :)
