3. I have never been to Disney World, but I plan to change that VERY soon!!
4. My favorite show is FRIENDS. I watch it every day, and I'm even watching it now!
5. I have absolutely NO idea how to cook, so maybe I can learn from all of you :)

Questions from Valerie:The Rules
1. What is your favorite thing to cook? {And please share the recipe if you can!}
Are you kidding me? I can't cook, AT ALL. I like to make easy mac, just add water & microwave :) Go out and try some.
2. Everyone has a guilty pleasure :) What's yours?
Too many! Shopping, cookies (desserts of any sort), and Mexican food.
3. Are you a sports fan? If so, who are your favorite teams?
HUGE Sports Fan!! I love the Memphis Tigers, Indianapolis Colts, NY Giants, & the Denver Broncos (TEBOW!!)
4. What are you going to watch tonight: The LSU/Bama game, The Bachelor, or Pretty Little Liars?
I chose The Bachelor, but I'm very disappointed I missed PLL.
5. What is the one beauty product you couldn't live without?
I'm horrible at consistently using ANY beauty product, so suggestions are welcome. As lame as it sounds, probably damage renewal shampoo & conditioner. My hair is so unhealthy without it, split ends everywhere!
6. Where is your favorite place to eat in the city where you live?
Definitely one of my favorites is somewhere we go EVERY anniversary, Texas De Brazil. I never eat near enough to make it worth it, but we always get a coupon to use on our anniversary.
7. If you won a free vacation, where would you choose to go?
No doubt I want to go international. Probably England, or Italy, or France!
8. Who is your favorite Disney princess?
SO hard to choose, probably Ariel. Is Rapunzel a Disney Princess because I sure love her, too?!
9. What do you like on your pizza?
I'm a plain jane usually sticking with cheese only, but ham & mushroom is my other go-to topping!
10. Post a picture of the most recent thing you pinned on Pinterest.
Gonna work on my fitness! Getting rid of all things that jiggle!!
11. If you could give one piece of advice to your sixteen year old self, what would it be?
When you go to college, face it, you're going to be a teacher, so start with it freshman year! I wasted almost two years trying to do other things, when I knew my calling was to teach. AND start learning to cook ASAP! Going to get quite a wake-up call in six months :)

I'm so new to the blogging world, so I don't have anyone to TAG, but in order to play nice, I'll give my questions and if you're reading this, feel free to play!

1. Where do you vacation every year?
2. What's the one food you couldn't live without?
3. What's your shopping weakness?
4. What your favorite pin on Pinterest?
5. What's your favorite nail polish? {Band and Color}
6. Where did you get you favorite, go-to pair of skinny jeans?
7. What's your favorite decorative piece in your home?
8. What's your most used beauty secret?
9. What is your favorite book?
10. What is your favorite movie?
11. What's your favorite Bible verse, if you have one?

I've definitely had fun. Hope you do as well!!

Lots of Love, Linsey

Okay, I don't know how to use this blog at all, but I am so very excited about it! So many people have blogs and I have had several people ask me why I don't have one because it would be a great way to keep up with the upcoming wedding. So, I decided to get one. Little did I know, I know NOTHING about blogs. I immediately asked my wonderful friend, Valerie, for her help. We set aside a few hours and I finally got my blog up and running. I am still so lost, but I'm sure with time, I'll eventually get the hang of it!
Huge thanks to Valerie for all her help. This picture dates back to Freshman year of college. An oldie, but goodie! I love it because we are matching completely! The shirts, the backpacks, the hair, & even our purses ALL matching. :)

Well, I shall be posting more soon.

But first, since this blog is named "Catching Up with the Kelley's", I probably I should update you on the wedding. I've got lots of planning still to do, but only 177 more days!!

Have a blessed Thursday!
