I recently learned that a fabulous co-worker of mine and mommy-to-be is a blogger. I often forget that people have lives and interests outside of work so I was pleasantly surprised to find out that we are family of the blog world. Sista SoFine has a great fashion sense and is so kind to share it with the world. Click on over to her site and check out her quips and eye candy - Sista SoFine

The ABCs of Me, Me, Me!

A. Age: 31

B. Bed size: Queen. I don't want any bigger or any smaller. I like to know where My Hero and Rockstar are while I am sleeping. I don't need to go on an expedition for them in the middle of the night in a bigger bed.

C. Chore you dislike: Does cooking count?

D. Dogs: Rocky, Rockstar, Rockzilla - all one in the same precious 9 year old that My Hero and I picked out of his grandfather's litter. This Jack Russell is our fur-child. HA!

E. Essential start to your day: Workout, Good Morning America, Coffee and a kiss from My Hero

F. Favorite color: Sparkle

G. Gold or silver: Both. I work at Tiffany & Co. Both are fabulous!

H. Height: 5'6.5"...5'7" on a good day

I. Instruments you play(ed): I play the violin. I used to teach violin lessons and play for weddings. I LOVE playing for weddings.

J. Job title: Japan Marketing & Global Collateral Coordinator

K. Kids: None yet...considering adoption. There are so many precious children that need a good home and loving parents.

L. Live: Living life to the fullest. Life is too short so you might as well enjoy it. Living out my audacious prayer (Thanks Pastor Steven Furtick and Elevation Church!)

M. Mom’s name: Mom, Gloria, Glo, Mommacita

N. Nicknames: Belle-Belle, Bellerina, Princess, BB, Queen B, Beezie, Queen

O. Overnight hospital stays: None that I recall. Phew!

P. Pet peeves: Having a short fuse and being rude to other people. Neither are necessary.

Q. Quote from a movie: "A child without courage is like a night without stars." -Punjab from Annie

R. Righty or lefty: Righty-tighty!

S. Siblings: 3 older brothers

T. Time you wake up: Weekdays-6:30ish; Weekends-Depends on what I have planned

U. Underwear: Umm, of course. I would like to wear matching sets, but I don't coordinate my own life that well.

V. Vegetables you don’t like: Seriously. I grew up in the south. I love nearly all fresh veggies.

W. What makes you run late: Myself. I think that running late is inherited...from my mother. HA! Actually, I am never late, but instead I am fashionably on time. I learned that from my grandmother.

X. X-rays you’ve had: Teeth, spine, teeth, chest, teeth, teeth, teeth

Y. Yummy food you make: Chocolate Turtle Cake...that's technically a dessert. I don't "cook." Thank goodness my hubby does.

Z. Zoo animal favorites: Tough one. I am not a big zoo goer. I can imagine that penguins are quite cute though.

From the South with Love - Part II

While My Hero was in Charlotte for a football tournament, my parents took advantage of the extra space in my apartment as well as the much needed time with me.
Of course I was late getting off work. Thank goodness my kind neighbors let them inside my building so they didn't have to wait outside in the cold. Welcome back to NYC! After a rejuvenating night's sleep, Mom was ready to shop, shop, shop. Dad was mentally prepared to trudge around with us and "ooh" and "ahhh" over our findings. First stop and the longest, but most successful was Lilly Pulitzer. The rain didn't slow us down. We then toured FAO Schartz to see if there was anything of interest for my nieces... We then ventured downtown to see all the home goodies at Fishs Eddy...creepy hand-molds and all...where we also met up with my girl friend, Ace of Spades. Before venturing home, we toured through the floral oasis inside Macy's Annual Flower Show After an exhausting day, we headed home to rest and snuggle with Rockstar who fell in love with Dad. That's not an easy feat with this little guy. I was going to get a picture of them leaving in the taxi, but all of our eyes were filled with tears so I missed the moment. My Hero and I are so blessed to have such a loving family who welcomes the adventure of coming to the north and understanding our appreciation and love of NYC.

From the South with Love - Part I

My Hero's mom and sister recently made a trek to Yankyville. During their time here, they went everywhere and tasted nearly everything. My Hero toured them around the city throughout the day while I worked and we all met up for dinner.

From the top of the Empire State Building...
To hanging out in Times Square...
To eating pizza at Two Bros. in Chelsea...
The trip was a great success! We shared the love of NYC with two Southerners. They'll be back!
