I’ve Been Made!!

‘Yo. You talkin’ to me… missies’?

Because if you are, I’d like to thank Preppy 101 of All Things Southern and Preppy and Sweet Southern Prep for the fun Preppy Mafia tag that originated on Beth Dunn’s blog, Social Climbers. I feel honored to receive this tag from my southern belle friends!
How fun!

Here are my answers to the official questions:

1. Who is your style icon? Princess Grace and my Audrey look-alike friend, Suzi.
2. What is your favorite socialite lit book? It’s currently a Dolley Madison Biography. America’s premier socialite.
3. Favorite party theme? Exotic Island Fantasy. Drinks with pink umbrellas, tiki decorations, appropriate Tommy Bahama island attire, silly games and island music.
4. Go to Halloween costume? Embarrassed to say but with Mr. PM’s cow costume, I am his Jersey Maid girl complete with blond braids and milk bottle prop. It’s a best costume winner, believe it or not. What can I say? It moooves me!
5. Extravagance you cannot live without? Sparkly cuff bracelets, lip gloss and music wherever I go.
6. Living person you admire? My MIL. At 87, she is constantly learning, is more techno savvy than I and values her independence. She is incredible.
7. Greatest Fear? I cannot say. I believe in not putting that out into the universe, either verbally or in written form.
8. Trait you deplore in yourself? Worrying, fretting, not trusting in the universal plan.
9. Which talent would you most like to have? It’s a tie ~ singing, playing the piano and the ability to draw.
10. Greatest Achievement? Raising two wonderful boys to manhood who are considerate, honest, caring and conscientious gentlemen who are well-mannered. They will always open a door for a lady and hold the door for others. I am hoping they remember to take the position of walking closest to the street when accompanying said ladies on a sidewalk stroll. πŸ™‚
