TAG: About Me...Get to know Jayme

Recently we were tagged by our friend Madeline from Cappuccino and Fashion.  It's the "About Me" or "About Us" TAG since there are two of us.  It's a great way to get to know us and hopefully for us to get to know you better.  We will post our answers in two separate posts so as to not overwhelm you guys with personal info. :-)

Jayme's About Me

1. Do you have a middle name?
Yes, my middle name is Lee - like the jeans. It runs through some of the women on my mom's side of the family. 

2. What is/was your favorite subject in school?
English was my favorite subject.  I even majored in it while I was in college.  I've always loved to read and write...not so keen on grammar though!

3. What's your favorite drink?
Diet Coke and Champagne...a perfect day is to start the day off with a Diet Coke and end it with a glass (or bottle) of Champagne.  :-)

4. Favorite songs at the moment?
Anything with a beat.  I love all kinds of music but Hip Hop and R&B are my thing!  If I have to name one it would be "Otis" by Jay Z and Kayne West featuring Otis Redding

5. What would you name your children?
Well I have three - Jade, Barkley and Cooper  :-).  They are my fur babies.  See pics below.

6. Do you participate in any sports?
Yes, I play on a co-ed touch football team.  It's so much fun! 

7. Favorite Book?
It's funny because as an English major you'd think that I have one...but if I answered this question then it would probably take me a year to figure it out.  It's such a tough one.

8. Favorite Color?
It changes all of the time.  Can I pick a rainbow?  :-)

9. Favorite Animal?
Dogs first and then hummingbirds, dolphins, manatees, monkeys, frogs... I just love all animals!! 

10. Favorite Perfume?
I used to not wear too much perfume but some of my faves are Ralph Lauren Romance, Jennifer Aniston, Kate Spade Twirl and MAC Turquatic

11. Favorite Holiday?
Definitely Christmas!  Just ask my hubby because I watch all of those cheesy Christmas movies (as long as they are happy!)

12. Have you graduated High School?
Yes, many, many years ago.

13. Have you been out of the country?
Yes, I have been to the Bahamas (twice), England and Mexico (twice and I got married in Puerto Vallarta in 2009).  There are SO many other places I need to see though!

14. Do you speak any other Languages?
Well I took many years of Spanish but I'm not great at speaking it.  I can understand it and read it a little better than I can speak it.  :-)

15. Do you have any siblings?
I have an older brother (4 years older) and we are nothing alike.  We don't look, sound or act alike in any way.  It's bizarre! 

16. What's your favorite store?
Sephora, Nordstrom, Target and DSW

17. Favorite Restaurant?
I'm not sure I have one...I just love to eat out and it doesn't have to be fancy.  I like places where you can sit and have a drink and just relax and hang out.  I must admit that if it's a bad night (as in I want to eat bad) I do love me some Popeye's Chicken!

18. Do you like school?
I always liked school.  In fact, I was really sad to graduate college. 

19. Favorite YouTubers?
There are so many.  I will say that the ones that got me excited to join the YT community would have to be Makeup By TiffanyD, Makeup Geek and even The Current Boobies (I just like her daily escapades). 

20. Favorite Movie?
Again, I have issues with picking my favorite anything. I'll say that I loved 8 Mile, Hustle & Flow, Bridesmaids, The Hangover and almost any CHICK FLICK (like The Proposal)...I'm not ashamed to admit that.  I like happy light-hearted movies.

21. Favorite TV show?
So hard because I have a ton: Cougar Town, Modern Family, Chuck, True Blood, What Not To Wear, Vampire Diaries, Flipping Out, Jersey Shore and all of the Housewives...and the list goes on.

22. PC or MAC?
PC but would love to go MAC since I'm in love with my iPad and my iPhone.

23. What phone do you have?

24. How tall are you?
5'3" but I'm still hoping to grow.  :-)

Meet my family:
My husband of almost 2 years -  Wes
