20 Things About Me

I feel like I put so much of myself into Sparkle & Whim (okay, not so much the blog part lately, haha) and I yet I don't really share anything personal about myself.  I have connected with a few bloggers over these past three years (so hard to believe!), but I am mostly behind the scenes.  So, I thought I would fill out a little Get To Know Me questionnaire as I am sure everyone is just dying to know more about me ;)

RosÉ Gummy Bears

I have been wanting to make Rosé gummy bears for at least a year now.  I don't really know why that is, but I have ;)  Maybe the fact that they're just so darn cute has something to do with it, who knows?  Anyway, I finally got around to making the little guys last weekend and to be honest, I am having mixed feelings about them.  Are they adorable to look at?  Absolutely!  Are they the best thing I've ever eaten?  Not so much.  As my mom put it, "I'd rather just drink a glass of wine."  Amen, sister!

In My Cart: Summer Blues

My favorite color is pink (stay with me here).  And although I love everything pink, when I look at my closet and my home, there is really no pink in sight.  My closet is mostly blue.  I think when I shop, I tell myself I already own too much pink and so I always go for blue.  So you would probably assume blue is my favorite color.  Tricky, right?

A Day in Alexandria

This past weekend, my mom, my sister, and I took a trip down to D.C. to visit my aunt.   While I say we went to D.C., we actually spent most of our time outside of the district.  Having spent my entire life visiting the area, it wasn't until a few years ago that I was introduced to Alexandria, VA.  I fell in love with this city immediately!  I couldn't wait to go back to Old Town and spend the day among the shops and admiring all of the old charm that the city offers.
