Woohoo! Five Question FRIDAY!

SO happy it's Friday! This week has drug by, which means the weekend will most likely fly by.

Last night, the BFF, Biz and I met up for some delicious sushi and drinks at J.Paul'z . Em and I split the Surf & Turf Roll (Shrimp, cream cheese and green onion, topped with beef tataki, toasted sesame seeds and a sweet chili sauce) and the Crunch Lady Roll (Tuna, cream cheese, avocado and tempura flake, topped with a spicy crab salad, scallions, eel sauce and spicy chili aioli). Soooooo good. If you live in/near Charleston and haven't ever been to J.Paul'z, go! Perfect for date nights and they have ladies night on Wednesday's with drink specials and one of Charleston's favorite bands, Plane Jane.

Tonight, Cameron and I are going to celebrate Frankie's birthday a day early at Social! Frankie dates Cameron's roommate, Scott, so I have gotten to know her very well over the past year and a half! She moved to North Carolina a few months ago after accepting a job as a cardiovascular perfusionist! Uhhhh...did I mention she's only turning 23? She is one hardworking and determined girl!

Tomorrow is another night of celebrations! We'll be going to a shower for our friends Stephanie & William who are tying the knot in October! That wedding will put the end to our 15 weddings in 2010! Hallelujah! Should be a good time!

One of the best Summers ever!
And now....for the questions...

1. How many pets do you have?
One. As much as I want more, he is plenty. My almost 5 year old golden retriever / lab mix, Brady. That's my angel on my sidebar :)
He is the sweetest boy, who provides for many hours of comic relief, and I couldn't imagine my life without him!

2. If you could switch places with anyone in the world for one day, who would it be?

Any hot female celebrity so I could experience what it would be like to get my hair and makeup done, have the paparazzi follow me around, go to a photoshoot, fly across the country at the drop of a hat, wear the best clothes, etc. 
Then, I would be totally happy going back to my normal life. 

3. What is your favorite money saving tip?

Coupons, coupons, coupons. Love going to Harris Teeter where they already double coupons up to $.99 and when they double or triple those coupons, you'll know where to find me. I love seeing on the bottom of the receipt that I saved $20-$30 in one visit!
I have no other tips because I'll be the first to admit that I haven't been the smartest with my money. But I'm learning!

4. What do you want your kids to be when they grow up?

Happy. Isn't that the obvious answer? It's true though and I'm sure every future parent / current parent will say the same.

5. What is your favorite quote?
I've always loved this Dr. Seuss quote because it's SO true: 

"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."

I get embarrassed really easily (see picture below) so I often have to remind myself that I shouldn't care what other people think.  
This red of a face from embarrassment CAN'T be normal!

Well, that's about it for now! Thanks for reading and I hope you have a great weekend!!


  1. That IS a red face!
