11 Facts About Myself: 

1. I am a licensed Zumba Instructor! I'm super obsessed with fitness and staying active and have danced my whole life so Zumba is the perfect fit for me.

2. I am still dating my high school sweetheart. We were good friends forever and Senior year of HS we finally started dating and have been ever since! He's simply the best. <3

3. I cheered in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in 2009. It was an amazing experience that I will never forget for the rest of my life!

4. I am super organized and obsessed with planning. I have four calendars (phone, computer, wall, & agenda) going at all times and use the To-Do App on my phone religiously.

5. I am a member of Alpha Delta Pi Sorority. I love being a part of this wonderful group of women and it has brought me so many opportunities and memories that without it I wouldn't have had. 

6. I studied abroad this past summer and visited Belgium, The Netherlands, France, England, Spain, and Italy. It was an incredible experience and I am so blessed to have the opportunity to do so. 

7. I am very passionate about what I hope to be my future career. It's my goal to work for a magazine, whether in print or an online version, and I am working extremely hard to get there.

8. I am an Aries and therefore can be very stubborn and overly determined to make things go the way I envision them to be. 

9. I actively make a point to be a more mature and ladylike person as I get older. I got the Ultimate Emily Post book for Christmas and am slowly but surely making my way through it's contents. I love blogs like Rules For The Southern Lady that promote manners and etiquette for my generation.

10. I love all things classic. Music, movies, fashion, books, etc. I get endless inspiration from things of the past and love to re-create the polite manner and silhouettes found in old movies and magazines.

11. I'm ob-sessed with holidays and entertaining. When I get my own home and have a family I fully intend to decorate and entertain the biggest and best I can. 

Questions from Classy Girl In Green: 
1. What’s your favorite vacation spot?  

That's a tough one. I went to Barcelona this past summer and fell in love but I would have to say my family's beach house on the South Carolina coast. It's been in our family for over 60 years and is the one place where we all gather together every year without fail. To me the beach house means love, laughter, sun, fun, and family time which is so sacred and has given me memories that will last forever. 

2. What’s the last movie you watched?  
Ferris Buller's Day Off, which I have on DVD. I'm a classic movie addict. Give me anything filmed from the 30s's to the 80's and I'm good to go! :)

3. Do you prefer college or NLF football?  
COLLEGE! I am a die-hard Clemson fan and have been since birth. My family, all the way from my great-grandfather to my mom have attended Clemson and I am currently a Junior here. I am so in love with my University and everything about it. On game-days you will find me decked out in my best orange and cheering way too crazily for my Tigers. 

4. Pearl or diamond earrings? 
Being a Southern girl I would have to say the pearls my Grandma gave me for high school graduation, of course! I rarely take them off.

5. Would you go a month without one checking social media site?  
No way. It's almost embarrassing the amount of time I spend of Twitter and Instagram. I love keeping up with everything that's going on in the world and with my friends. I could probably go without Facebook or e-mail but my Twitter obsession runs too deep to stop for a whole month! 

6. Mac or PC?  
I'm a Mac girl all the way. I saved up my money to buy my first laptop, an iBook G4, when I was 15 and haven't looked back since. I currently have a white Macbook and being an English major and writing all the time it's my lifeline!

7. What’s your favorite type of flower?  
Peonies all the way! There is something about their fragile, dainty petals and soft look that I just adore. 

8. Do you prefer chocolate or vanilla ice cream?  
Vanilla, hands down. 

9. What character would you be from the Rugrats?  
Hmm, probably a mix between Angela and Chuckie. I love to plan and organize things but I also have a shy side that comes out at times.

10. If you could vacation anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?  
Santorini, Greece. Ever since I can remember I've stared at pictures of the beautiful white washed buildings and giant bright blue water and wished I could see it in person. Hopefully one day I'll get there!

11. What’s your favorite rainy day activity?
Probably snuggling up on my couch with a good book or movie, or online shopping!
