from blog life to real life.

* today i'm linking up with jessica and britt for their "from blog life to real life"  and i've been excited about it all week! basically, if these two worlds collided... this is what you would get - enjoy!

1. do you have any real life blog friends? 

sarah from the mr. and the mrs. ok, so i know we met long before blogging, but if anyone out there is a real life blogging friend - it would be her. 

2. which blogger are you just dying to meet?
for as long as i've been blogging i've followed naomi over at the rockstar diaries.  it's been so fun to follow  their little family's journey and see the cool places they visit while living in washington d.c. it would be so cool to meet her and get advice on all things life!

also - i'm obsessed with alycia's blog - crowley party. she is such a good writer and i enjoy getting ideas from her photography, clothes, ideas, etc. maybe one day she'll give me tips in person :)

3. which blogger's closet do you want to raid? 
definitely definitely definitely the pink peonies. seriously, how can one girl have that many amazing outfits?? hoping, wishing, praying i one day win the lottery and can offer her the cash in exchange for her closet :)

4. you are stuck on an island. which blogger would you want with you to help you survive? 
i think if i was stranded on an island, i would be most worried about food. yes, food. so who better to take with me than nikki over at chef in training? besides that, she is super cute and maybe she can bring her cute kids to keep us entertained :)

5. the first blogger you remember "meeting" and connecting with? 
deb over at dose of happy. she taught me what a blog is and inspired me with her writing and outlook. when i first started blogging, her and her husband would always leave me funny/motivational comments that helped me have fun with it. besides that, she's my sister-in-law and i've always been so blessed to be taught from her. 

6. any blogger that you admire and look up to?
who better to admire than stephanie at nie nie dialogues. i've always been amazed at her strength and positive outlook on life - even when she had every reason in the world to be angry or bitter. haven't seen her video? pretty sure it's impossible to not tear up. 

(and to make things even better, i think i ran into her at target once. yet, i'm a baby and didn't have the guts to say something. not even a "hi." or "you're amazing." still kicking myself for that one...)

and of course, my only sister cami. but what's new? i've admired her my entire life! after all, she did pray me into this world :) 
me and james, cami's adorable son. i can never get enough of that face!

7. who is the craziest/funniest blogger? 
three words - mormon in manhattan. every week natalie does a recap of the bachelor/ette - i look forward to it all week long. she is so honest and to boot - she is on broadway. how cool is that? if your looking for a crazy/funny blog - read hers!

and while your at it, stop by arika's blog. one of the funniest/craziest girls i know :)

8. there's a reality television show for bloggers, who would you want to be casted with you? 
vanessa at v and co. remember when i gave away this bag? 

idea came from her! i don't know how she does it - but every time she makes something new, i find myself "needing" it. oh, how i would love to be on reality tv with her.

9. some bloggers have really cool jobs, anybody you'd like to swap careers with? 
again, natalie has to have one of the coolest jobs around. how many people do you know that work on broadway? and get to hang out with john stamos?!?! maybe if i wake up with perfect curly hair tomorrow, i'll fly to nyc and see if she'll switch me.... here's to dreaming!

10. favorite blog design?   
if you haven't read or looked around eighteen25 yet, do it! they post cute fonts, tutorials, and they always seem to find the latest and greatest ideas. so as far as blog design goes - they got it covered! 

oh, and i definitely covet this girl and her skills

there you have it!!
