Seven + Me.

the beautiful friend of all birds extraordinaire (& hopefully my first friend in my new city) Danielle of Dinosaur Toes & the cute-as-a-button Sanders of On The Bright Side tagged yours truly to amaze you with 7 facts of me.

i love these tags because this kind of randomness may not come out in regular conversation and i'm all about random factuals.

1.
Meet Maverick, my bichon frise. She's named after my favourite Dallas NBA team. I let her sleep in bed with us most nights... much to the dismay of my husband-to-be.


2. i believe in handwritten letters. i wrote the below to Gemma, sharing a time in my life that included an island mattress in a new home/post breakup. I recently joined postcrossing, asking senders to tell me about their day, share a favorite excerpt from a novel, or confess a secret I'd keep. (these are the kind of messages i write)


3. i have a twin sister i call twinkie. i love being a twin, there is NO relationship like it. This is our first time being apart and i miss her.

"A sister is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost."




4. my winter wardrobe is my summer one with stockings/tights.


5. my kitchen decor is roosters. Sounds cliche, i know BUT there's a story behind it. Back when i was anchoring my weekend morning show, there was a story about a cock fighting bust. I wouldn't say "cock" on air. For some reason, it didn't feel right to say it on a sunday morning so i said "rooster fighting" instead. My then best friend (now brand new fiance) laughed at me for this and since then, i've collected artsy roosters for our kitchen.


6. i kept sand taken off an italian beach from this picture. The little fish souvenir is from Croatia. The italian romance of my dolce vita gave it to me after visiting Croatsia (how he pronounced it).


7. you all know i'm a wino. i'm a sentimental one at that: i've kept all the wine bottles me and Max have shared on important occasions.





If I didn't tag you, please leave me some interesting random facts about you anyway, so i can get to know you better. Thanks lovies!!! xo

I like your facts, and I love these types of tag games because there is nothing as easy to talk about as yourself.
I love that you wear summer clothes with tights because I wear my summer dresses with leggings, a jacket and a scarf...voila, instant winter outfit! I get tired of black pants for work, so I have to get creative!

p.s. About your drinking habit :) I'm glad you've been to Peaks of Otter Winery. Their wines are so good, and not too many people know about it since it's sort of off the beaten path.

Rooster fighting, hee hee. I do fancy a tag, thanks!

Jenni said...

CAPow said...

interesting random fact about capow:

i love driving around alone because that's the only time I can sing as loud as i want to without being heard

Risti Megan said...

I love that you keep your empty wine bottles from special occasions. Okay, I'll get busy and come up with my random factoids. Thanks for tagging me!

Megan said...

Thanks for the tag lovely! I enjoyed learning those little bits about you. So sweet that you keep the wine bottles from special occasions. And love the sister quote. Have a great weekend!

Micaela said...

Danielle, i thought peaks of otter was charming! it was the most expensive bottle of wine we have prob bought, but it satisfied my drinking habit ;) thank you again for the tag. i love these things!


CApow, sing your heart out always!

Megan, my favourite bottle is the first one we've ever shared.

xoxo

I love #5, thats hilarious! Haha :)

SO cute how you make your clothes work all year :) and you and your twin are adorable in that photo :)

Nice getting to know some random facts about you :)

Melissa Y. Allam said...

Great to learn even more things about you. I have two doggies myself and one is a half bichon frise mixed with a king charles cavalier spaniel. She's a little bigger than yours, but white and fluffy with light spots of tan and gray. Her name is Ruby. I love a good glass of wine as well.

Jen said...

Oh you would LOVE my kitchen! We have a rooster wallpaper border that runs around the entire thing. I actually don't like them, and we're going to get rid of them. But the people who owned the house before us did: we have a rooster door knocker, a rooster rug in front of the washer/dryer... and there were some more that we've already disposed of. They were everywhere when we first moved in!

Nahl said...

Empty wine bottle collection is so fab!

Cassie said...

I thought you were going to say you kept all bottles of wine then - that would be a feat! I could fill a small house with mine - especially when me and my best friend get together!

Marisa said...

i love these "get to know me posts"... i always find out more and more about my bestie. thnks for the tag..xoxo

Rhianne said...

I love this list, your puppy and you! Keeping the wine bottles is such a lovely idea - I'm rubbish at keeping things like like x

Carolyn said...

I heart Maverick!! I let Lola sleep in my bed, too. :) And my winter wardrobe is my spring one + tights, too! And I LOVE handwritten letters, and yours is so friggin adorable. Love it!
