Allow me to reintroduce myself, my name is Amber.
A to the mber (said in my best Jay-Z rap voice)
I've done some sprucing up around here did you notice? Call it spring cleaning if you will.
While visiting Suburban Sparkle I learned fellow blogger Kotryna was offering an amazing deal on blog design and you know I hopped on that bandwagon!! Whoop Whoop!
It was time for a new look to go with the new name!
Things have been crazy busy here at Carpools to Cocktails both IRL and blogland and I realized that with Blissdom only a few weeks away, LuckyFABB coming on the heels of that and a host of new things in the works there will be new people stopping by here and the Facebook page that may have no clue as to what Carpools to Cocktails is all about!
So I thought I'd do a quick list of 10 random/interesting/fun facts about me!
- My favorite color is lavender. I love all shades of purple but lavender has my heart.
- Procrastination makes me more creative and is also a constant source of stress in my life.
- I am a total shoe junkie. My dream is to have a closet just for my shoes. That would be my happy place.
- Cooking is not my favorite but I love to make a delicious meal for my friends and family.
- I'm generally reading more than one book at a time. I love to read and often purchase/check-out in multiples so it makes it that much harder to restrain myself.
- I am an eternal optimist. I pretty much think things will always work out and try to look on the bright side at all times. This pisses some people off. I just brush my shoulders off.
- I feel as though I'm on a constant journey to 'grow up' and keeping waiting for the point in which I feel like a full fledged adult in mind, body & deed. I'll keep you posted on when that actually happens.
- I never thought I'd been writing a 'style' blog. Ever. I just thought this would be a small space for me to write funny stories about my kid. Who knew eh?
- I am an introverted extrovert. I am outgoing, and loud. Personable and fun but get very shy and insecure in new settings/groups. Especially when I don't know anyone. These conferences are going to stretch my box into a rhombus.
- I love this space. I love blogging. I love the community. I love the images. I am super curious and love reading fiction so blogs are just another way to find out about other people and what they are going through. I like to hear all sides of the story.
And I'm spent. That was pretty random I suppose but it's late and this is what you get after a busy day spent chasing my own personal Curious George, running errands, cleaning, cooking......ya know....housewife-ish.
So there you have it - a brief, synopsis of me. You can expect a little bit of everything around here.... finding inspiration on Beauty + Life + Style and making it accessible and real, that is what Carpools To Cocktails is all about.
Oh and this little mantra is up on our wall too -
