Where are you based? I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio. 

Are you married? Yes, I've been married to my best friend in the whole world, Jason, for over 14 years! And no, we were not 12 when we got married! We were both 20. We just look really young!

Who takes your photos? I do! With a little help from a remote trigger.

Is this your full time job? Unfortunately not. But I do have a pretty cool day job. I am an Esthetician at Kenneth's Hair Salon and Day Spa (the Polaris location) which means I do facials, waxing, and make-up. I've been there over 10 years and I really enjoy helping women look more beautiful!

Do you only shop at thrift stores? While I do primarily shop at thrift stores, I love inexpensive stores like Target, Forever 21 and H&M and I love a great sale and clearance rack as well! For me it's not all about thrift shopping rather it's about being thrifty.

Do you have any pets? I have a black and white tuxedo cat named Harvey. He's such a little lover! We just got him in November 2013 after our beloved cat Fudge passed away from cancer. I am a huge animal lover! Then we adopted 2 kittens in the fall of 2014. We named them Lars and Jonsi. Lars is a Chartreu and is the softest thing in the whole world. Jonsi is an orange tabby and the sweetest little guy ever!

What do you like to do in your spare time? When I'm not blogging you can find me at the thrift store, Pinning on Pinterest, taking walks with my husband, snuggling with my kitties, doing Zumba and step aerobics, going to baseball games (Go Yankees!), going out to dinner, going to church and bible study, and watching t.v.

Favorite t.v shows? Property Brothers, Jeff Lewis' Flipping Out, House Hunters, The Walking Dead,  America's Next Top Model, Days of Our Lives, Mad Men, Gossip Girl, Pretty Little Liars, The Today Show, Project Runway, Love It or List It, Homeland, Hart of Dixie

Favorite music/bands? My husbands band Fashion Week is of course my #1 favorite, then Ryan Adams (not Bryan Adams), Coldplay, U2, Lady Antebellum, Taylor Swift,  Camera Obscura, Fleet Foxes, Miranda Lambert

Favorite foods/drinks: pizza, pizza, and pizza!  ok and buffalo chicken, anything Italian or Mexican but not a big fan of Asian food or sushi. I actually eat pretty healthy and I like to track my calories on My Fitness Pal app. I eat oatmeal with cranberries and walnuts and several cups of green tea every morning

If you could have dinner with a famous person who would it be?  Dolly Parton and Miss Piggy

Things you love? Hot Dog Races, oldies, fashion, thrift shopping, Pinterest, Smokey the Bear, short hair on women, watching tv, exploring new cities, pigs, Charles Wysocki puzzles, summer, sunshine, the beach, high heels

Random things about me...
I really want to meet Grumpy Cat!
I have social anxiety disorder and I'm an extreme introvert
I've only eaten one hamburger in my whole life- enough to know I don't really like them!
I collected pigs throughout my childhood- they are all in boxes in my parents basement now
