I've made a new friend.


How cute is she?
Meet Natalie, a new blog friend of mine that I "met" through my friend Mel. She is a fellow stay at home mamma to an adorable boy named Sterling (how rockin' is that name?). She shares a passion for shopping, cooking, and home decor, and I just love reading what she has to say (especially her recipes!).

Recently Natalie tagged me in a fun questionnaire, so here I go!

1)What is your signature color?

It depends. If we're talking home decor, I would have to say gray. Most of my walls are some sort of gray, which is why my husband's eyes almost popped out of his head when I recently picked a shade of brown for our bedroom.
If we're talking make-up, I LOVE me a good red lip. Some of my faves are Red Square, Dragon Girl, Jungle Red,
and Blood Work, all by NARS.

2)What is your most embarrassing moment?

Oh, this is hard to narrow down, as I have had a few. The first that comes to mind is several years ago I was on a first date. We were at a benefit concert for Hurricane Katrina, and we had back stage passes. I was walking down a long flight of LOUD METAL stairs in high heels and super wide legged jeans that were cuffed. My heel caught on the cuff and I stumbled all the way down the stairs, and slammed into Dave Grohl from the Foo Fighters.
Classy.

3)Would you get anything pierced other than your ears? If so what?

Too late--when I was 18, I was driving by myself and decided I wanted to get my belly button pierced. So I did.
I took it out when I was 23, and still have a funny mark where it used to be.
Again, classy.

4)Are you a social butterfly or homebody?

Both. I used to get out more, but since being married and becoming a mom, one of my favorite things to do, is have friends over for dinner. My husband and I love to cook, and this way we don't have to worry about getting a babysitter! Every once in a while it's nice to get out though.

5)Are you done having babies or do you want more?

Well, I just gave birth to my darling daughter 2 weeks ago, and our family feels complete. Though I think her brother wants to send her back.

6)Are you loyal to your hairstylist or do you try every new salon in town?

This question is going to put me over the edge!! My best friend Amber has been doing my hair pretty much since I've lived in Kansas City. She has become like a sister to me, and her salon was seriously the coolest ever. She just moved back to Austin, which is KILLING me, I miss her so much!! Needless to say, I'm either going to be going to Austin every couple of months, or my roots are going to suffer.

7)How many times have you moved in your life?
Seven. Some were in Chicago, Los Angeles, and here in Kansas City.
And I don't feel "done" moving. I'm not a gypsy per say, but I am open to the idea of re-locating.


8)If you could take a vacation for just you and your love where would it be?

Right now, given the fact that we are sleep deprived with a toddler and a new born to take care of, I would say somewhere beach-y and quiet, which normally isn't our thing. We love big cities, and sight seeing--but right now rest and waves would be perfect.


Thanks Natalie for tagging me!
