A little intro

Hi everyone!

First and foremost, let me introduce myself.
I'm Morgan from It's A Girl Thing.  I recently graduated college and wanted a change, so this little slice of heaven is my new escape.  It's where I plan to spill my thoughts about all things fashion, interior design & DIY related.


I was planning on telling y'all a little bit more about myself when I came across a fun tag on one of my favorite blogs, Style Me Swanky, and I figured what better way to do that than to participate!  So here it goes..

*you must post the rules
*post 11 fun facts about yourself
*answer the 11 questions that the tagger posted for you & then create 11 questions to ask others
*ask your readers to participate or tag 11 readers & link them in your post
*let them know they've been tagged!

11 Fun Facts

1.  I've been to 4 of the 7 continents.
{Haven't been to South America, Asia or Antarctica}

2.  My mom works for Donald Trump.
{Kinda... she works for the Miss Universe Organization.  She is a state pageant director for South Carolina, North Carolina, Louisiana & Alabama.}

3.  I'm obsessed with Rachel Zoe & her style.

{I die.}

4.  My dream job is to either be a successful fashion designer or a wedding planner.
{Seriously, if all my Saturdays wouldn't be booked from weddings, I would SO be on that.  I have an obsession.  Check out my pinterest account and see for yourselves.}

5.  I've never water-skied.
{I'm all for having fun, and I LOVE being on the water, but I prefer to be in a tube or in the boat.}

6.  My cousin was just on the 2nd season of the Next Great Baker!
{Heather G -- she was the cute & pregnant blonde from Tennessee... not the stripper Heather...}

7.  I'm a new mommy!

{to this little fur baby named Lilly!}

8.  I despise motorcycles.
{My uncle was killed in a motorcycle accident my freshman year of college leaving behind my aunt (my mom's little sister) who battles lupus daily.  He was a USAir pilot and was working on building a plane of his own.  He called my aunt to tell her what route he was taking since he was on the bike, and while coming home from the hanger--going 10mph under the speed limit with his helmet on--an old woman was blinded by the sunset and pulled out anyway.  A freak accident, but no one can argue with me that motorcycles are safe.  They're not.}

9.  I have a celebrity crush on Kate Beckinsale.
{After I saw Serendipity for the first time I was smitten.  Shortly after seeing the movie I went to NYC for my 15th birthday, and what did I do?  Went straight to Serendipity and got a frozen hot chocolate.  And now I go every time I'm there.  She's simply stunning.}

10.  I've met Mario Lopez.
{You know Slater from Saved By The Bell?  Yea, him.  He dated, married & divorced Ali Landry, who was my mom's Miss Louisiana USA titleholder & won Miss USA.  But don't let his good looks fool you ladies, we do NOT like this man.  They are divorced because he cheated on ALI FLIPPIN' LANDRY, the most gorgeous person ever, on their honeymoon.  You heard me right.  TOOL.}

11.  I have a wonderful boyfriend, Henry, who I've been seeing for almost 2 years.

{Isn't he handsome?!}

11 Questions

1. If you could raid any celebrity's closet, who would it be and why?

Rachel Zoe {duh!!} because her style is to-die-for.  And it's so versatile!  She's funky and glamourous at the same time.  I love.

2. If you were a shoe, what would you look like?

These babies right here...

Classy & girly with a touch of sparkle.

3. What is your biggest pet peeve?

When people chew with their mouth open and/or smack their food or gum.  Irks. My. Nerves.

4. Favorite song of all-time?

Ants Marching - Dave Matthews Band.
Seriously will put me in a good mood whenever.. It just makes you wanna dance!

5. Are you a dog person or a cat person? And why?

Most definitely a dog person.  My family has never had any animals because my mom is a neat freak and doesn't want her "rugs messed on", but we all agree that cats would have never been an option.  Their hair gets EVERYWHERE, they don't get super excited to see you when you come home & they're just creepy.

6. You're queen for a day. How do you spend your royal 24 hours?

In Paris shopping all the luxurious boutiques and eating all the ahhhmazing food.  No doubt about it.

7. What's the most delicious thing you've ever eaten?

Shrimp & grits... if you've never tried them, I'm sorry.

8. What scares you the most?

Tornados.  Biggest fear EVER!

9. Which celebrity do you wish would drift off into obscurity?

Lindsay Lohan... hands down.  That girl has GOT to get a grip.

10. You're 16 years old again. What advice would you give your younger self?

I would tell myself to spend more time with my family and to never take that time for granted.  Family is ultimately the one thing we can truly count on to be there and love us unconditionally.

11. What's your Starbucks order?

Grande Skinny Caramel Macchiato.  It's as simple as that, ladies.

And there you have it!  I'm going to go with Megan's idea... it's your turn to answer the same 11 questions!! I want my readers (all zero of you.. haha) to participate!  If you decide to, please let me know so I'm able to get to know y'all a little better, too!!

xx, M
