Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. I mean. Bloggers.

Here’s something that made me feel all sorts of happy feelings yesterday. I went over to visit my girl Lindsay at Lindsay Weighs In and found that she had tagged me for this cute blog award. The jean pocket in the picture made me feel that this post title was appropriate. I’ve never seen that movie, but I do have a general idea of what it is about and I hope they wash those pants frequently if they are going to keep passing them around.


Thanks, Lindsay!! I used to love doing these when I wrote my old blog! There are rules. Here they are:

1. Post the logo on your blog. Check.
2. Thanks the person who nominated you. Check.
3. Answer the questions.
4. Choose 10 or so other ladies who blog as your nominees.
5. Post the links to the nominees’ blogs and notify them on their blog.

Bring on the questions!

Favorite Color

In the words of the great Gogol Bordello…”Start wearing PURPLE wearing PURPLE!” It might have just a little bit to do with the fact that I’m a HUGE Baltimore Ravens fan, but purple has been my most favorite for years. It might have been pretty obvious when I did that Favorite Things post. Purple shoes. Purple Garmin. Lots of my running gear is purple. Come to think of it, most of my wardrobe is purple.


Naturally I took off work for the Super Bowl parade last February!

Favorite Animal

No-brainer. One need look no further than Betty’s first Halloween costume:


My daughter was the most spectacular and magical baby unicorn of 2012. Runners up would be giraffes and cats. I like cats enough that I have one tattooed on the inside of my wrist.

Favorite Non-Alcoholic Drink

Another no-brainer.


Specifically a venti skinny cinnamon dolce latte. I should just give Starbucks my bank account information. Or get one of their rewards cards. I would probably have earned so many free cups of coffee by now if I had one of those. Okay I’m literally applying for one right after I finish this post.

Facebook or Twitter?

Can I say neither?


I think Instagram is pretty much the best invention ever. I’ve been participating in Fat Mum Slim‘s Photo-a-Day since October of 2012. I love how it allows me a little extra creativity every day even if it’s only for a second.

Favorite Pattern

These dresses.


That bowtie dress might be my favorite ever and I really love polka dots. I have a thing with circles in general. I think they are very aesthetically pleasing and they show up a lot in my design work.

Least favorite pattern is anything involving mustaches. That needs to cease immediately.

What is Your Passion?

I think this blog pretty much sums it all up. First and foremost I am very passionate about my role as a mom. We definitely have our off days (what parent and child doesn’t?), but there is nothing that gives me more joy in my life than watching my daughter grow and learn new things and it is my goal to make sure she smiles and has fun every day. When I became a mom I was also very passionate about holding on to my identity and my other interests have allowed me to do that. I’ve been very passionate about my yoga practice for the past 6 years. I’m passionate about design and love to make things look beautiful. Running is an even more recent passion and it quickly became one of the strongest. I view my runs as kind of like relationships…I feel like I’ve learned a little something about myself on every single one of them. Even the crappy ones.

Basically, life is good. 🙂

Now I’m supposed to choose 10 other ladies. Just ladies? Whatever…I think I’m going to go rogue and pick a couple guys also. I just hope they can fit into the traveling pants.

First and foremost, my Sole Sister BFF, Helly @ Helly on the Run!

Kelly @ Turned Up To ELEVEN!

Michael @ Running Around the Bend

Julia @ Here’s What’s Cooking…

Amber @ PB & PRs

Kristen @ Run Away With Me  (Lindsay already tagged her too, which means she extra has to do it.)

Kristine @ Pink Cupcake Runs

Sharsti @ Sugar Plum Runner

Anita @ Dunwaetin

Scott @ Piratebobcat

Elle @ A Fast Paced Life


Thanks again, Lindsay, for including me! It’s been a little while since I thought about what I’m really passionate about so writing this all out was kind of eye-opening!

I hope everyone is having an EPIC TUESDAY!

    Hahaha, dying about how you hope they wash the pants frequently! I kind of love the mustache trend, just because I like holding things with mustaches up to my mouth and saying “I mustache you a question!” I refuse to ever be an adult. I love the relationship that you have with Betty ❤ YES SIGN UP FOR A REWARDS CARD THIS SECOND, my gold Starbucks Rewards card (it has your name on it!!!) makes me WAY happier than it should, and I also should just give them a portion of my paycheck. The only thing that's close to my work is a Stargetbucks though, so I have the temptation of Starbucks AND Target! Loved reading this post, and LOVE YOUUU.

    Awwww, I’m so flattered that you picked me!! Thank you!! Loved reading all your responses. Totally agree with you about the mustaches (barf) and that picture of you at the parade is epic (how did I never see that one before?). I’m right there with ya on the Starbucks and I just love both those dresses you and B are sporting. Great post!!

  3. Misty says:

    I couldn’t reply to your comment because your email isn’t linked. Boo!

    Thank you for reading my blog, friend.

    Your kid is seriously the cutest… after mine of course. 😉

  4. Kelly @ Turned up to Eleven says:

    EEE! Yay and THANK YOU!!! I know what I’m doing tonight!!!

    That bow dress makes me swoon every time you post it! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!

    You know it’s funny I find myself drawn to purple, mostly eggplant shades and I always shy away from it because *gasp* what would my NFL team say 😉 hehe

    Can’t wait to do this – thanks so much for tagging me darlin’! oxox

    Thank you so much for tagging me!!
    I love the cat on your wrist. I have a wrist tattoo too – I think it’s a fantastic place to get a tattoo 🙂 I’m getting my 2nd tattoo (running related!) next month & I can’t freaking wait.
    Also that bow-tie print is so cute for a dress. I’m mildly obsessed with bows so I 100% approve 😉

    Love this! You’ve got some awesome passions. And thanks for the nomination, this is my third one in a week so now I super have to do it! Look out for this post on Friday 🙂

  7. piratebobcat says:

    Hahaha, thanks so much!!! Like I said, I’m just getting caught up on everything! I’m proud that you made me a part of the sisterhood! I’m a huge fan of yours (except for that whole Ravens thing (I’m a Browns fan))!

I want to hear from YOU!
