the 411

From Mrs. to Mama is one of my must reads every.single.day.
Today she is hosting a link up for bloggers, to share a little about who they are . Cute idea huh?

Let's get started...my name Lindsay, if you didn't get that from my title. I am 28 years old.
Today is my 2 year wedding anniversary...see post below about it :)
Born and bred in Southern California.
loves: shopping, working out, traveling, sun bathing, coffee, shooting, photography, ice cream

1. How long have you been blogging? And what got you started on blogging?
Has your blog changed?
I have been blogging since 2008. I originally started this blog as a place to keep my ideas for wedding planning. Then as time progressed, I started reading other blogs that had nothing to do with weddings and it and I thought would be fun to have a little hobby where I could journal about myself, my life as a wife, sister, friend, daughter. A place to write about silly stuff. Serious stuff. And everything in between.

2. Did you go to college? If so where, and what did you study?
Yes, I went to Cal State, Northridge and studied Healthcare Administration. I am going back to school to become an Ultrasound Tech {post to come about this}. Just started 4 weeks ago.

3. Where have you traveled?
I love to travel. Been all over the U.S., NY being an absolute favorite. Been all over Europe.
I absolutely love Italy!! One day Tony will take me there and show me the non tourist areas...where his family grew up, etc {hubby is 100% Italian..ooh la la ;) }
4. If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you would buy?
Build ourselves custom home. Then a trip to Ireland. Then buy my momma a home too!! Oh and a shopping spree for myself!!

5. What are your 3 biggest pet peeves?
~leaving an empty roll of toilet paper
~idiot drivers
~the lazy people in this country that take advantage and mooch of those of us that work our asses off

6. What is your favorite movie?
La Bamba. Oh my word, growing up this was one movie I LOVED watching!!! I could still watch it today, but it would be alone, as Tony thinks it is total cheeseball acting.

7. What is your drink of choice; wine, beer, or liquor. Or Water, Soda, Tea?
I love me a Long Island Ice Tea and a Margarita. You cannot go wrong with either of those in my book. Well, actually you can...if there isn't enough alcohol ;) There's some people that can vouch that I make super strong delicious drinks. Then second choice would be coffee. Water is a given since that is my go to drink 24/7, can't get enough water!

8. What is something you enjoy to do when you have me time?
I am totally, 100% content going to Starbucks and sitting there just people watching. I love to people watch! I'm not a person who loves being alone...I get bored. I could sit with someone else and do absolutely nothing, but just the fact that they are there with me makes it all better.

9. If you could have a $10,000 shopping spree to one store, which store would it be?
NORDSTROMS!! Hands.Down.100%!!!!

10. Share with us an embarrassing moment of your past? Or present.
When I was in 4th grade, we were playing hand ball {please tell me you know what hand ball is, my husband had no idea} and it was just after a big rain, so there was mud everywhere. Well, I was running backwards to try to hit the ball....when I slipped and landed in a gigantic mud puddle. There was no one home to bring me a change of clothes, so I walked around all day with a huge mud stain on my pants....that totally looked like a shit my pants :( I remember this like it was yesterday...

11. What day would you love to relive again?
My wedding day.
It was truly the most amazing day of my life. Had an absolute blast with all our family and friends.
I loved every moment of it. I could look at our wedding photos every day. Watch our video every day.
Seriously, the best day ever!!!

12. If your life was turned into a movie... what actor would play you?
I love Reese Witherspoon. She is so down to earth. Home town girl. Love her!!!

13. What are the jobs you had in high school/college/the early years?
Preschool teacher, office bitch clerk, human resource manager, Starbucks barista, registrar 

14. Show us a picture from high school or college.
{college years at a Kenny Chesney concert. short hair and totally blonde}

15. If you could travel anywhere in the world, all expenses paid, where would you go?
Ireland. No doubt about it!!!!

16. Show us the most current picture of you or you and your family.
17. Where do you see your life 5 years from now?
I would love to own a home with a decent size yard and pool. Have a least two kids. Two dogs {for Tony. I am so not an animal person}. Working part time as an ultrasound tech, if money allows, and staying home part time with the kids.
