With all this pink and green, it was just a matter of time before someone noticed my prep potential. I have Shannon, at Webbisodes: Diapers, Drool and Drama, to thank for this beautiful award! To be honest with y'all, while I was growing up, "preppy" was not something I wanted to be categorized under. However, as an adult and now blogging mama, things have changed a bit. These blogging ladies in the Preppy Mafia are definitely ones I pride myself in being associated with. Therefore, I am proud and honored to accept this award as one of the newest members to the Preppy Mafia!
1. Copy and paste the above image onto your blog/website.
2. Answer the questions below.
3. Pass onto bloggers that you LOVE and let them know they've been given this award.
Welcome to the Preppy Mafia! Now for a few questions, you cannot refuse.
1. Who is your style icon(s)?
I like classy and simple, with a little bit of edge (or sass). Those icons include Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Alba and Kelly Ripa.
2. What is your favorite Socialite lit book?
I wish I had time to read anything other than books about education and organizational leadership. For now, that's all I read when it comes to books. I'll get back to ya when I graduate in a few years.
3. Favorite party theme?
I love a good party theme! Probably my favorite is a "Jimmy Buffett/Tropical" theme. It screams, "Kick back, have some fun and enjoy a frozen concoction!."
4. Go to Halloween costume?
Absolutely! Almost every year my husband and I dress up for Halloween parties. We have a blast trying to coordinate outfits. The costumes are always homemade and pieced together. To us, buying a costume already put together takes all the fun out of it.
5. Extravagance you cannot live without?
My cell pone, my lap top and my MomAgenda planners, calendar and note pads. Without these things, it is impossible to function.
6. Living person you admire?
He may think it funny for me to be writing this, but I admire my husband. I don't think he truly knows how much I look up to him and how proud I am of who he is as a person. This man loves his family and friends more than anything in the world. These days, strong, loyal and loving men are hard to come by. If you have one ladies, hold on tight! I admire my husband because he brings out the best in me and others around him.
7. Greatest fear?
Fear is an interesting concept. It is the one thing holding us back from our true potential. It doesn't exist in the world around us, but only within us. My biggest fear is allowing fear itself to keep me from going for my dreams and aspirations.
8. Trait you deplore in yourself?
My listening skills. If I am preoccupied with something or my mind is swamped, I find it hard to really listen when others are talking. For example, if I come home and my husband wants to vent or share something exciting with me, I will appear to be listening, but really my mind is somewhere else. This is something I try to work on constantly. The ones I love deserve my undivided attention. I need to be there for them, 100%. My issues can wait.
9. Which talent would you most like to have?
I wish I could sing. I mean "Kelly Clarkson" sing! I have no problem getting in front of people, I love music, I love to dance, but the voice is not that impressive. If I could sing, I would probably try to be in a band or would have auditioned for American Idol years ago. Instead, my voice is reserved for the shower and my hour-long commutes to work. That's when I get to pretend I'm a rock star.
10. Greatest Achievement?
My greatest achievement is being selected as a finalist in the Real Women of Philadelphia contest. It continues to be one of the greatest experiences in my life (besides marrying Rudy and having our daughter, of course). I am having a blast creating new recipes, making new friends and being a part of the community. If you haven't yet, please stop by the Real Women of Philadelphia community and become a part of all the excitement. The casting part of the competition is closed, but this is just the beginning. After the four winners are selected in Savannah, they will need help creating and choosing recipes to be featured in a Philadelphia Cream Cheese Cookbook. Check it out!
Now, The Preppy Mafia award goes to:

Congrats ladies and I hope everyone is having a marvelous Monday!
