Running Just as Fast as I can is coordinating a Summer Swap. I am very excited. As a newbie blogger, this seemed like a great way to get to know my fellow bloggers.

She posted these questions yesterday as a way to get to know our swap partners, but I thought that I would be good just to post my answers here as well.

1. Favorite preppy designers? Lilly, Lacoste, Vineyard Vines, JCrew

2. Favorite preppy accessories? My JCrew belts, My pink clutch bag, and my Pink Elephant Houndstooth Lilly bag.

3. Any hobbies? Tennis, wedding planning, cooking and learning Adobe Illustrator

4. Enjoy crafting, if so anything in particular? I do, but I don't do it often enough. I don't do anything in particular. What ever craft I see that inspires me I'll try. My mother is a fabulous crafter: quilts, crochets blankets, pin cushions, etc. I need to get her to teach me to sew.

5. Favorite books/magazines? I am a magazine junkie - you name it I probably read it - Marie Claire, Martha Stewart, Cooks Illustrated, Lucky, Domino, Blueprint(may you rest in peace), Bazaar, Women's Health, Shape, Everyday w/ Rachael Ray, etc. I love books, but haven't read much lately.

6. Any other favorite things? Anything with Peanut Butter or pink.

7. Collect anything? Not really, I do have a rather large collection of giraffes that I've gotten in my travels through the years. I am dying to get a bag made out of that pink giraffe print that is out right now.

8. Any kids/pets? Not yet :) We are waiting until we are married for both.

9. Any allergies? Nope!!

10. Favorite thing to do in the Summer? Have friends over for dinner and grilling out. We'll eat and then hang out on the deck with glasses of Limoncello.

11. What most makes you think of Summer? The beach, the sun, how green everything is right now, Michelob Ultra Lime beer

12. Favorite treat/drink? Reese's Peanut Butter Cups or M&Ms. Red Wine, Limoncello, and Champagne(not in the order or together though)

13. Anything else your partner should know about you? I currently am obsessed with my yard and planting flowers. It has to look good when all the future in laws and their family are in town for the wedding. I have started to buy flowers and have them inside lately too. Mr. P thinks I am going a bit far with all of the flowers :)

Hey, there! I am excited to be your Summer Swap partner! It looks like we have a lot of the same interests. I know you're having fun planning your wedding -- I just got married in December and I miss all the wedding hoopla :)
I'm back in Georgia for the weekend to spend time with my mama for Mother's Day. I'll post the swap questions and my answers when I get back on Sunday night.
Great blog, by the way! Looking forward to reading it more.

You can never have too many flowers! I am going to keep my eye out for you on the seersucker issue. Not sure if you have Nordstrom- but they have a pretty cute seersucker dress in the juniors department.
