I'm excited to announce the winner of My Favorite Things Giveaway....

And don't get discouraged because I'm hosting an awesome giveaway starting FRIDAY.

Today I'm linking up with Becky over at From Mrs. To Momma for the Blogger 411.
I think this is a great idea and I can't wait to browse the other blogs to find out more about the writers behind them!!
So without further ado...
1. How long have you been blogging? And what got you started on blogging? Has your blog changed?
I started blogging my freshman year at Samford.
I didn't write much and I didn't really expect anything to come of it--I just wanted a creative outlet and I loved to write. 
It has changed so much-- I am so thankful that people even want to read what I have to say--that means a lot. 2. Did you go to college? If so where, and what did you study?
Yes, currently a junior in college studying PR. 
So far, I have attended three universities:::

3. Where have you traveled?
All over the USA-- thanks to my flight attendant mom.
Out of country:: Jamaica & Dominican Republic (mission trips)
Mexico, Bahamas
4. If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you would buy?
A new car! 
Bye bye Mazda.
5. What are your 3 biggest pet peeves?
1. Cracking knuckles
2. People canceling plans
3. Mooching off people
6. What is your favorite movie?
Harry Potter #noshame
7. What is your drink of choice; wine, beer, or liquor. Or Water, Soda, Tea?
I know it's weird but water.
Or coffee. 
8. What is something you enjoy to do when you have me time?
Organizing (?) haha and reading a good book.
9. If you could have a $10,000 shopping spree to one store, which store would it be?
Oh gracious, just one:: J.Crew-- I pretty much adore everything.
10. Share with us an embarrassing moment of your past? Or present.
I'm really really competitive.
I've always been that way.
This past year, I was playing intramural softball on the B team and decided that the only way I could make it home was slide.
Had I ever slid before in my entire life? No.
But I slid...and I wasn't safe. 
Buuut I did end up with the entire upper half of my leg being completely raw and bleeding.
I ran off the field laughing and crying.
I still have that scar.
11. What day would you love to relive again?
The day I decided to pack up my car without my parents (they were in Europe) and head down to Jackson, TN to a school I had never even really been to. It was the one time in my life that I honestly can say I had no control over. I just did what felt right and I knew 100% that the Lord's hand was on that moment.
 12. If your life was turned into a movie... what actor would play you?
Reese Witherspoon.
She just seems so down to earth.
13. What are the jobs you had in high school/college/the early years?
In high school:: I was a children's swim instructor/lifeguard/worked at a boutique (where I still work!)
14. Show us a picture from high school or college.
Senior Prom!
15. If you could travel anywhere in the world, all expenses paid, where would you go?
Israel hands down. 
That is my dream-- to see the place were Jesus lived...I cannot imagine!
16. Show us the most current picture of you or you, or your family, or anything of meaning to you. 
My momma and I at a Chi Omega luncheon right before school let out.
17. Where do you see your life 5 years from now?
I'll go generic and say married, a good job and kids.
Wherever the Lord wants me.
