You Ask, I Answer: Part 2

Bama Belle... said... I love that we are all playing this game! (and your last post made me so homesick for the flora-bama! ah, good times there!) How did you and hubs meet? And when do we get to meet?

It's such a long story how we met but it's a good one so bare with me here!
I moved to Smalltown, GA to take a job with a company here. Hubs worked there too. My boss thought it would be a good idea to introduce us since he went to Auburn too. So he did. Well he offered to take me out to meet some people since I know NO ONE! We went to dinner with a few coworkers. He followed me home from dinner and picked me up to take me to a little bar here. I had so much fun that night. When he brought me home, he walked me to the door. (so sweet)! At the time I had a boyfriend back home and he was dating someone too, so it was a friendly hug and good night and he was off. Well that was June 2005. I broke up with my boyfriend from home that same month and began dating someone else here in Smalltown, GA in July. It was the owner of the company's son (bad idea). It didn't get serious until late August. I left that company in September and by the end of Nov, I was engaged. I knew he wasn't the one, but I thought he was so nice. He thought he could buy my love, honestly now that I look back. 4 months after that (March 06) I called off the engagement. He wasn't right for me, I wasn't right for him. I was not in love with him and really I don't think he was me either. As it turns out, he was a compulsive liar. Everyone knew that but me, because I was new here. Explains why he proposed so fast! So after I called off that engagement, I started hanging out with my dear friend, M, who just so happens to be good friends with Hubs. We hung out one night for M's birthday and that was basically it. It was a slow process for him, but I knew I was in love with him within a month or so! He eventually came around to "loving me" (ha)!
The cool part about this is, after we started dating, we figured out we actually had some of the same friends at Auburn (weird considering that that school has 30,000 students). So we are pretty sure that we crossed paths at Auburn at some point and checked each other out :) ha! It's funny how life works out, but for me, God's plan for me is perfect!! Everything happens for a reason. I know that now more than ever!! My husband is the best man I know. He would do anything for me, and I for him. Amazing how God works!

How 'bout this: Where do you shop/or favorite place to shop? You ALWAYS have the cutest clothes on so I'm curious. Glad you are back!


Thank you for your sweet comment girl. You are too precious!
Honestly I don't have a favorite place. I have MANY places that I shop. See, I love bargains! I love discounts!! To me, the fun part is piecing an outfit together one piece at a time! So I shop all over. Some of my favorites are: Forever 21, Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie, Express, The Limited, TJ Maxx, Ross, Target, Victoria's Secret, Gap, Dillards, Macy's, Belk... I could go on and on! Seriously, any and everywhere that has cute clothes and bargains, I am there :)

Elizabeth said...
Your nail polish in the beach pics is so pretty! Do you mind sharing the brand and color? Thanks!


Thanks girl! It's Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear, Purple PotionFrost (13) (Walmart-$3) Loved it!

I haven't been around too long, so you can just direct me to the post if you've already answered these!Where did you and your hubby meet?Are your toenails always painted? What color?What is your favorite thing to cook?Favorite thing to eat?What is your favorite hair care product?I think that's enough to get you started.


The Hubs questions is above :)
No I don't paint my toenails in the winter :) No need to! But I do keep my nails painted. These days they are either: red, navy blue, purple, black, maroon.
I love cooking pasta dishes for hubs. He loves any and everything in them and I love cooking with lots of ingredients :)
Favorite thing to eat... PASTA and PIZZA... Mmmmm!
I love my Joico, K-Pak Smoothing Balm, it helps so much with fly aways!!

The Shabby Princess said...
What did you get your degree in and when did you graduate college?Can I babysit your puppies if I'm ever in your town? I have several "go to" outfits that make me feel fantastic--what are yours?


Public Relations, May 2005.
You can babysit my furbabies anytime :)
My go to outfit right now is my 7 skinny jeans and my leather jacket. Even if I throw on a tiny tee under it, I feel sexy and kind of like a 'bad ass" hahahahaha!

skinnyrunner said...
If you could have one calorie laden, most heavenly, sinful, no holds barred meal, what would it be?


Now this is TOUGH!! One of three things...
A Large Cheese pizza with banana peppers (the whole dang thing)!
All the tacos I can eat with all the salsa and chips I want!
Olive Garden salad and breadsticks, cheese funduta & fettucine alfredo (Mmmm-I am dying over here now) :)

Kitty Cat said...
Do you have any siblings? Are you close with them? This is a good idea, by the way!


I have four half brothers! I am the only child from my parents. One brother, Joey, is my mom's son. He is 38. We lived together from the time I was born (he was 12) til he was in his 20s, so he is my closest brother, but we aren't close now! We talk occasionally, and when we do we still act like bro and sis. The other three brothers all range in age from 39-43. They are from my dad's first marriage. We aren't close at all and never have been that I remember. I love them and they love me, but we have never been close. It was hard because they were so much older than me.

Lindsey said...
Have you branched out from white zin? If not, I dare you to try white merlot! You will fall in love.=)


Acutally I did. It's called Riunite Lambrusco. It's red, but fruity and I liked it. I promise to try White Merlot soon :) Thanks chica :)

Have you ever met Dale Jr or any other driver? What race tracks have you been to? Which one is your favorite (to go to or watch on TV)?


I haven't ever met Dale Jr, but I would loooove to. I might pass out!! I sat next to Michael Waltrip and Darrell Waltrip at an event I planned. I have met several older drivers that are retired that most people don't recognize. Talladega and Atlanta are my favorite races!! Hands down. Bristol is good too! And of course, Daytona!! Pocono is becoming a favorite :)

Ashley said...
First of all congrats on the amazing weight loss! You look great! I have been in your same situation and lost a lot of weight myself...what is your absolute favorite healthy dish to cook?

Honestly, because I am so picky, my favorite healthy thing to eat is Wheat pasta & Paul Newmans Marinara Sauce. I love carbs and pasta and this is just my fave. I could eat it every day! But I try to give my body a break off of carbs every now and then :)

*One Step at a Time* said...
Okay yay!I want to ask you what your favorite thing is about living in Georgia and if it is where you want to reside permanantly or if you would rather live in a different state?Also, I'd love to know how close you are to goal for WW and how you are planning to celebrate once you reach it?


My favorite thing about living in GA is where I live I am so centrally located. I am 1 hour from the ATL airport. 1.5 hours from the best shopping in the south (ATL). 45 minutes from my wonderful alma mater, Auburn. 1.5 hours from my family.
I have always lived in small towns. But I would love to end up in Birmingham, AL or right outside of it. It's a growing city and it's only 45 minutes from my parents. But it's not nearly as big as ATL. It's a beautiful city and I love Alabama. It's where I was born and raised. But I am also learning to love GA more and more!
I have actually reached my goal for WW. My goal was 140. I lost 24 pounds since Oct 1st. Now that I have reached that, I am strictly trying to find a way to maintain it! I know it will go up and down, up and down. It's different trying to balance my calories and points to not lose anymore. But I am working on it. My reward to myself is to flaunt a bikini this summer like never before and do it with the utmost confidence :)

I loved learning more about you and congratulations on the weight loss! Good job!

My best friend's son and daughter-in-law attended AU about the same time that you must have been there. Wonder if you might know them? You know anyone with last name Prielozny?

Krystyn said...

I loved hearing more about you! Thanks for sharing...and answering my questions!

I have a good friend from Auburn, too. But, it's a pretty big school, right?

Prissy Southern Prep said...

I loved all of your questions and answers! Thanks for the great post!

~Mrs. Guru~ said...

You made me hungry! Loved all your answers! I need to come shopping with you if it is some of the best!

Mojito Maven said...

i love the story of how you and your husband met!!!! and isn't it strange to think that you could be married to some other guy right now if you hadn't called it off? God is so good!

Naturally Caffeinated Family said...

I love to hear the meeting stories! God is good :) We have some friends in Birmingham and they really like it (and I think they both went to Auburn too!)! BabyBoy came over to the computer after wrestling with Daddy and saw the pic of you and Hubby and waved and said hiiii hiii :)

kb said...

I didnt know you worked for NASCAR!
I used to live in a town near Darlington SC and I'd see the drivers at a local Outbaack Steakhouse. I also met Cale Yarbourough at my friends soccer game...I turned around and he was right there. I freakedout a little!

I have a question for you--Are you going to see Britney!?
And...What is your favorite store to shop at?

Cali Girl said...

so fun to read about you!

Britni and Justin said...

Great to read all about you! My husband and I are moving to Birmingham this year!!!! We are so excited! Maybe we can be "real" friends one day if you move

Piper Jacquelyn said...

Too fun to read! Thanks for the "insight" into you & your life!

The Reality of Happily Ever After said...

YAY FOR YOU!!! You reached your goal... AWESOME!

I love the story of how you and your hubs met... :)

I went to Alabama to try out for American Idol! I loved the mall we went to there (would never remember the name of it) --

Elizabeth said...

Thanks for the nail polish color - I'm going to buy it next time I'm at the grocery store! I was so happy to hear it was something affordable.

Also wanted to say my fave wine is white zin as well, but when I do drink something else, I love the Riunite Lambrusco! So good!

Something Blue said...

Wow, it sure sounds like we have a lot in common! And it sure sounds like you live in LaGrange. I used to go to band camp at LaGrange College every summer in high school! lol! I

I live in Birmingham and I have to say I love it here! After I started attending U of Alabama I really grew to love the area. I graduated in May 05. After some job-hopping the finacee and I returned to central Alabama in Aug. 06 and bought a house in Feb. 07. Apparently it rubbed off because my parents moved over here from Marietta GA in Sept 0f 2007!

I am trying to lose my college weight and have thought about using WW. 140 is my goal weight as well, I'm 5'5" and about 165 now and a size 12. If I can lose 10 by the wedding in April that's fine with me.

Well now that I've given away my entire life's story....

Bama Belle... said...

thanks for answering my question! such a cute story and God truly does work in mysterious ways. I am a very firm believer that everything happens for a reason.

TraciP said...

Hi, you don't know me and I don't know you :) But I came across your blog and saw where you bought your first pair of sevens. I am obsessed with jeans also!! and just wanted to tell you that I buy them at revolveclothing.com and if you put JT in the promo code section you get 15% off. Just wanted to help and saw where you liked to get things on sale :)

Lindsey said...
