Monday Morning Pug Crush 15/365 {Michelle, Everyday Celebrating}

Happy November. Just ate a few of the boys' rejected, leftover Butterfingers and I am ready to start my day:)

Welcome to Marvelous Michelle Monday.

Crush 15/365: Michelle, Everyday Celebrating

I met Michelle a year or so ago on Twitter and she remains one of me fave chicks-eva. She is wickedly funny and totally cracks me up with her cryptic tweets. And she knows it. Michelle is an incredible largescale event planner, mastermind behind the Everyday Celebrating blog, she runs an Etsy shop with some flippin' sweet partyware, she sits on the advisory panel of lavish!, she is a social media maven, oh, and she is the Goodwill Goddess{girlfriend finds junk in Goodwill stores and transforms it into creative masterpieces}. Michelle is one very hardworking, gifted and busy entertaining guru. She loves the challenge of planning extraordinary everyday events on a creative and limited budget. And she loves to share her tips and tricks with us. Crushing hard on Michelle Monday. Renaissance Repurposing Rockstar:)


Fascinating Michelle trivia:

• favorite color? to wear: black in general: green. I love a good grass green in good modern design. Makes me giddy.

• favorite team? I am SO not into sports [says the girl that spends the majority of her fall getting paid to tailgate.]

• if you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be? easy. Penne pasta with meat sauce covered in parm cheese. I could live on it. I'm boring, I know. I also know it's the reason my ass is so big. Eh.. life's short. [shrug]

• party trend you are crushing on? re-purposing! As everyone knows, I love me some Goodwill! I love finding great items, I can recreate into an entertaining piece. I get double the decor for literally a quarter of the price AND it's unique.

• party trend you are so over? Setting up a dessert/candy buffet and calling it a "party". One table does not a party make. It's kinda my pet peeve.

• favorite aisle in the craft store? Seasonal. Matter of fact, who wants to help me come up with a NEW holiday so we can create MORE seasonal stuff? 'Cause my garage isn't quite junked up enough. LOL

• do you wear Uggs? Hell to tha no.

• do you really exercise? Did I ever tell you I did?

• minivan or non minivan driving? non. SUV. Finally gave up the sports car.

• favorite holiday? Tie between Christmas and Halloween. Although now that I have a child, Halloween is much more fun than it used to be.

• favorite smell? The warm temple of my son's head right below his hairline. (I know. Odd, right?) And..there's a bread factory on my way to work. The day they bake bread, the drive into work is DIVINE!

• do you color your hair? Let's put it this way.. my natural color is black.

• do you think you’re cool? Starting Dec. 10, I'm taking age 40 to a new level of cool. Holla!

I would so love to hit the GW's in the Nashville area some day with Michelle! I too have a serious crush and wish I could attend lavish to get to meet her and some other fave bloggers! (Love her sassy snark and only wish I could be as wickedly funny!)
