Sisterhood of the World!

I started this blog back in May, but I didn't really start writing every week day until September, so this blogging thing is really new to me. I never thought when I started blogging that I would find so many people that I have so much in common with and that I probably would be IRL friends. Or that I would be so intersted in what they are doing, and feel like when they triumph I triumph and when they fall I hurt for them too. 
I told myself I do this for myself and I don't care what happens, and while I do enjoy posting for myself, it really brightens my day when someone takes the time to comment on something that I've written, so THANK YOU for continuing to come back to see what the heck I'm up to and making those sweet comments. One of those people happens to be Caroline from Miss Oline, she has great taste in clothes and her fiance takes the best pictures, I mean come on that dress in that location? PERFECT! I'm still trying to figure out where the heck her fiance lives! Cause I want to live there too! 

Thank You Caroline for thinking of me and for giving me first blog award! You really are the best. So here are the questions I have to answer to receive this lovely award:

Please tell me a story of your fashion disaster experience.
Hmm...fashion disaster, I'm not sure that I have one yet. Although sometimes I put something on, and since I get dressed at 5am in the semi-dark, I think it looks a lot better then it does in real life.  Like the time I thought I was wearing a different color blue, but it wasn't a disaster, just semi-embarassing to think that people might think I'm color blind and can't coordinate colors.
What’s your favorite thing to do, if you are not blogging?
Before kids (okay kid) my husband and I loved rock climbing, we love climbing outdoors the most, but we couldn't do that often, but we love indoor rock climbing too. 
Since the kid...we have gone exactly zero times. But I've always loved to scrapbook and take pictures. I always have a camera in hand, so much so my family doesn't ever bring a camera to events because they know I'll have my camera and send out the pictures within the week.
Who did you want to be, if you had a chance to become a character in your favorite movie?
I think I would want to be Allie from the Notebook. Silly chick flick I know, but she and Noah had such a great love, that even though she had Alzheimer's she still came back to him for moments at a time because of their love for each other, listening to their love story. I hope that not matter what happens to my husband and I that we will always be able to find our way back to each other.
Who inspired you and made you started blogging in the first place?
I don't think it was anyone in particular. When we first talked about trying to have babies, I started the blog to document our journey, then we had a baby and I started using it as a journal only available to close family and friends. Then I finally joined the pinterest world late last year and decided hey I can do DIY projects, and I started Foxy's Domestic Side to document that. But then it turned into a place where I can put things that I don't necessarily want my family to see, i.e what I wore/ate last week. For those that keep coming back to see what I'm up to, thanks from the bottom of my heart!
Favorite Movie?
Okay, another cheesy movie, but I think it's because it reminds me of college and my best friend, but I'm going to say it, Ever After, we watched the movie every single night to fall asleep to.  Cheese acting, but I love how at the end the stepmother and sister get what's coming to them.
Favorite Book?
The Winner by David Baldacci, I read it when I was in high school and I just loved it so much. It was really the first book that my dad had passed down to me to read , and it was the first book of many that got us reading the same material and something to bond over. I think that's why I pick it every single time as a favorite. But it's also a good suspense book, go get it if you haven't read it yet!
Favorite Brand?
I love Kate Spade and everything that she has to offer, bags, shoes, clothes and I even have her china, yep she has china...which I registered for our wedding. And the bonus? It's dishwasher safe!

If you had a magical ability, what did you want it to be?
To fly! I have always wanted to be able to fly, to just take off whenever I wanted and go wherever I wanted.
Actor crush?
Currently, Ryan Gosling, have you seen him in Drive? Holy hotness, although a stupid plot to a movie, his hotness makes up for it, and he's super cute/hot in Crazy, Stupid, Love.  Must see Gangster Squad
If you could meet a person who has died, who would you choose?
I probably should say someone smart, like Einstein or something, but I would just feel inferior, so I'm going to have to go with...I have no idea...like seriously no idea. How boring and uneducated does that sound? I feel like I'm not interesting enough to bring someone back to life I guess...
Sarah from Tucker Up -Besides having an awesome name ;) she's doing this no shopping for 365 days, that's right, she's not clothes, jewelry or shoe shopping for 365. I'm not sure if I should worship her or fear that she's going cray cray. Okay not really the last part, but I can't wait to see what outfits she pulls together from what she has. I would also like to add, I think I want her closet as it is, I think she has more shoes then I have clothes and shoes combined.

Laura from Laura Darling - she's funny and I love her bio. I'm not sure how I found her blog, probably through a blog hop, but I'm glad I stumbled into her world called life.

Cassandra from 25 in my 25th - she has fun DIY projects like the one where her and her boyfriend competed for a Golden Globe she made. She won in case you wanted to know.

Rachel from Sugar & Stripes - she is currently doing 31 days of blogging and I started following her because she has a big family, and I love big families and I wanted to see what she was going to say for 31 days.

Meg from Henning Love - She has amazing food recipes all the time that I wish she lived next door and I could taste everything she makes. She's down to earth and tries to have a good time, I 
 think we would be great IRL friends if we lived near each other.

    1. Haha, if I had a magical power, it would probably be to fly too. Or teleport. Anything that will get me out of sitting in traffic!
