Alma mater and program of study: Dub-V, or West Virginia University as it’s known more commonly. Both Bachelors and Masters in Sports Management.... and partying : )
What do you love about weddings? My most favorite part is usually the couple’s first dance. I am such a sap and I typically get a teeny bit teary eyed (hopeless romantic, what can I say). And, if their first dance song is the same as mine (Allison Krause “When You Say Nothing At All), I can barely be in the same room as to save myself the embarrassment of being a sentimental faux-pas.
What is your ideal day to yourself (money no object)? Start the morning at Starbucks reading a chiclit book outside with a HUGE coffee, then mani/pedis at the mall so that I can also window shop on my way in and out, rent a car service and hit some wineries in Loudoun County, spending the afternoon scrapbooking uninterrupted, and finish off the day at a carnival with the family and fireworks!
Favorite Band/Singer and why? Dave Matthews Band. It reminds me of being young and fun and essentially carefree.
Fun quirky thing about you: Well, other than twirling my hair (it helps keep the curls under control), I cannot stand the feel of chalk. My poor son is relegated to drawing chalk on the sidewalk with me just watching.
If you could meet anyone who would it be and why? Martha Stewart. I’d want to pick her brain all about time management, weddings, organization, and thank her for all the overall awesomeness that I think she is.
If you got married this year, what theme/concept would you have? Argh, so hard to choose. Usually I base my wedding-do-over dreams on the venue that I happen to be in love with at the time. Right now, it’d be centered around a modern artsy wedding at the Long View Gallery.
What’s your favorite store and why? Paper Source. Love ev.er.y.thing about it. The colors, the textures, the examples of the DIY goodness that there is to be had. My husband refuses to go with me anymore when I shop there because I dawdle and swoon for hours. True story.
Any pets? 2 dogs, 2 kids and a husband ; )
Heels or flip flops? Flip flops unless we are talking about heels of the Manolo Blahnik caliber (I was defenseless against Sex and the City’s brainwashing regarding the brand).
What’s your favorite OPI nail color? Michelle of Main Event Catering has me hooked on Bubble Bath!
