Every Tuesday I will be giving "kudos" to a lovely lady blogger that deserves some recognition for being innovative or just plain amazing.
This week I picked one of my first blogger buddies (if I can call her that!). Kelly @ Confessions of a Law School Dropout has always had an appealing blog, and most recently, she packed up and moved from Boston to Texas! What a ride. Anyway, this favorite blogger of mine has taken a mini break to re-coop from her move and get a j-o-b but she still deserves *kudos* for being so fantastic. Go follow her and leave we warm wishes for when she returns. =)
Name: Kelly Marie
Location: Houston, TX
Blog: Confessions of a Law School Dropout
Pets/Kids: 1 furbaby, West Wing
Describe your blog in three words: just my life
Tell us about your recent move: I lived in Southeastern MA my entire life, in fact I've lived in the same house since I was 2. My husband recently got into the graduate/PhD program at the University of Houston so here we are. He took the Uhaul and hooked up his car to a trailer; my best friend came in the car with me and West Wing who we put in a car seat. 3 hotels and 2000 miles later we made it!
How are you dealing? I'm a pretty outgoing, so I don't mind it too much. I have no job so that's really hard dealing with right now. Also, it's hot like really hot, so that I'm getting used to. If my family and friends could just come and move down here I would be much, much better!
What is your ideal day? Sitting by the pool with a good book and a frozen drink and then coming into the AC to see my beautiful husband,Bruce and energetic pup & then grabbing a bite to eat!
What was your favorite vacation? Our honeymoon was probably my favorite vacation, but we also always go to Falmouth (Cape Cod) every year and I look forward to the next year the day after I get back!
What are some of your quirks? I'm super talkative like I won't shut up especially when I'm nervous or we become really close friends AND I'm super awkward, especially when I first meet people unless there is drinks involved and then I become less awkward and more talkative...
Favorite color: Hot Pink!! LOVE it, it is so fun and girly!!
Favorite Restaurant: Bugaboo Creek..Hubs and I call it The Lodge :)
Hobbies: I would say most definitely, blogging. Writing of any kind, really & reading. I also collect TV series on DVD and love watching movies.
Favorite thing about yourself: I think my eyes are my best physical feature, but I like that I'm an open person, there isn't much I won't tell you and I think that helps make/keep my friendships because it makes me a good listener in return.
If you could have dinner with 2 people (dead or alive) who would they be: Lucille Ball because I was obsessed with her when I was a little girl (she was a hoot!! yupp, you read that right, I said hoot) and even used to collect I Love Lucy memorabilia and probably Reese Witherspoon because she played Elle Woods (hi, hello Elle Woods I pretty much thought I was you growing up..until you know I dropped out of law school, no big deal) and I'm pretty sure she is a Gamma Phi Beta although now I'm not sure because I got different answers when I was re-researching her.
What is your next “big splurge”: Probably a house!! :) <--insert happy, crazy, awkward dance here
What is your favorite joke, quote, or saying: "This is life not heaven, you don't have to be perfect" - from the movie Gia.
Share a silly story: So this happened on the trip down here from MA and I actually posted it already on my blog, but it needs to be relived. I believe we were in Mississippi..BFF and I were on one of our 2 hour bathroom breaks (for us and the pup). BFF was in the restroom and I was walking West. All of a sudden I hear a barking, and I spotted this dog walking towards us at a distance. Oh cute, I thought to myself until the barking becomes louder and it starts GALLOPING towards me. Yes, this old 80 year old dog started charging me and West. I started freaking out and quickly began to walk to my car..then I picked up West and started RUNNING to my car, jumped in and started laughing so hard I was crying and it turned into this manic little episode. BFF came out of the gas station, looked into the car window and knocked on the window. When I told her what happened she began dying laughing after I pointed out what the dog looked like..I'm pretty sure the dog was geriatric EXCEPT that it really was charging at me. Yes, it had a collar on but that doesn't mean it can't be a mean dog..right?
Share a random fact: I'm obsessed with going to see musicals and I want to see at least one a year for as long as I can and if I have a daughter take her once a year with me. So far I've seen: Cats, Grease, Chicago, The Lion King, Rent, Legally Blonde:The Musical, and Wicked (IDK if the Nutcracker or the Rockettes count, but I've seen both of those too!) Oh and I love Diet Dr. Pepper :)
