It’s Friday everyone and you know what that means, another fun installment of five things with a blogger you need to know.
This week we have the uber-talented Alex from things that sparkle. I honestly admire her, she launched her own interior design business and is kicking some serious ass. When Alex isn’t creating the spaces of her client’s dreams, she’s busy planning her wedding and just plain being awesome. Oh and she’s from Chicago and you know how I have a thing for the Chicago bloggers.
1. I never learned how to ride a bike but spinning has recently become my favorite way to exercise.
2. I loathe movie theatres and actually dont even love watching movies at home either.
3. My hair started to go grey when I was about 20 years old. I’ve been coloring my hair ever since.
If I didn’t I think I would actually be salt and pepper.
4. I am not really a big meat eater but I love sausage (on pizza, off the grill, in my pasta, all of it!)
5. I am the oldest of 5. The youngest is 20 years younger than me.
I don’t know about you all, but I am majorly freaked out by the seats at movie theaters. Also, can we talk about how adorable the candid photo of the whole fam (plus Spencer – Alex’s fiance) is?
While you’re at it, don’t miss her feature in Ivy & Piper‘s March Issue (page 54)!
So move your tail on out of here and over to see Alex!
Live this- I’m going grey too, Alex!!! Hate it so much 🙁
Thanks so much for having me Christin, and for all your sweet words. You’re the best! xo
Thanks for introducing me to an awesome new blog!
Is anyone going to buy me that bike, or what?
What a sweet family. That bike is super cute.
Alex, I just pulled 6 grey hairs from my head. Are we old? This is terrifying.
Love Alex, so lucky to call her my friend! Christin, I am obsessed with this new series!
Cute series! Alex is great. Love the guest post!
I love this series! The grey hair thing is sneaking up on me and I’m NOT a fan.. thank goodness for dye!
cute photos of your brothers & sisters!!
Another Alex who doesn’t know how to ride a bike, but is obsessed with spinning? Love.
I adore Alex! Loved getting to know her more. Happy weekend, Christin! xo
I love Alex…and frankly I’m glad that someone else’s hair started going gray at 20. Sheesh.
Love Alex! And I had such a horror story about bicycle riding as a child. My parents never taught me and then I had to ride a bike on a field trip in grade school and I was the only kid who couldn’t. Totally mortifying! My grandfather taught me how to after. Glad to hear I’m not the only one who didn’t know how as a child. 🙂
Woooah, JOE. I can’t imagine my mom telling me (right now because I’m 20) that she’s going to have another baby. I’d be like, “CAN I RAISE IT?” I love babies… and want one. Since I haven’t dated in almost 3 years though (seriously dated) I don’t see me getting pregnant through air. Drats! Happy weekend…:)
Can’t wait to read Alex’s blog–I don’t like seats at the movie theatres either, here is something weird about them and I can’t put my finger on it.
that candid picture is way too cute. and anyone who loves spinning intimidates me- those damn seats HURT! such a cute feature, love alex!
I’ve always said that as soon as my hair would turn grey I would dye it, but I just did for the very first time, just for fun (though I’ve seen a couple of those grey bastards!)
Loved reading more about Alex 😉
cute post 🙂
I love ALex and these little fun facts about her 🙂
Thanks for sharing. I am off to read Alexs blog now! She sounds adorable.
What a good looking family! Love it and this series and Alex. I don’t, however, love spinning. I wish I did, but I actually despise it. Ugh.
Loved getting to know you better Alex! I so agree on the movie theater. i have this irrational fear of lice, and I once read that kids can pick it up there, and so that basically ensured that I never go to the movies again.
love the bike
