Meet Lizzy

Hi! I'm 'Lizzy'. Actually my name is McKenna, but for those of you with sisters out there, you will get this - when you are watching a movie and you pick characters you would be - I would be Elizabeth from Pride & Prejudice and my younger sister Hailey would be Jane. And since we are all but obsessed with anything Pride & Prejudice we thought it would be the perfect fit.

Well I wanted to break from traditional posts and let you get to know me a little bit. So, to keep it light and fun I decided to answer some basic questions about me, so here goes.

1. What is a character flaw of yours?
I am a little bit of a perfectionist. Things have to be done a certain way and silly things like how my handwriting looks, or how something is done can drive me nuts. The good news is I'm mostly this way with myself, I am much more easy going when it comes to others.

2. What is your favorite color?
Pink. Although I love color in general. I am more likely to wear colors than neutrals. I like bright accents and statement pieces throughout my house. I love watching Color Splash on HGTV because I love the way David Bromstad decorates. And I like style that is sophisticated and FUN and that usually means COLOR!

3. What is your family life like?
I am married to my best friend, Eric and we have been married for almost 7 years now. We have known each other since middle school and have the most fun when we are being goofy (which is usually when I am commentating sports we are watching - I always have an interesting, fresh take). We have an adorable little girl that just turned 1 this month, Sadie, and she is the BEST part of our lives. We are slightly obsessed and definitely those parents that you want to punch because all they talk about is how amazing their kid is. (But seriously she is like the coolest thing ever.)

4. Why Lizzy and Janes?
Well, for Mother's Day 2011 a friend asked me to help her assemble mother's day gifts for the moms of the childrens group we were in charge of at church and the gifts were these singed fabric flowers. She showed me how and I was IN LOVE! They were so cute and my mind went crazy with all the fun possibilities, my sister and I got the supplies and got to work. We started making items and decided to share our love with others, so we opened an Etsy shop and decided to officially launch on Febraury 1st, 2012.

5. What are some of your likes?
I love anything chocolate especially if it also contains peanut butter. I love desserts and baking and my sugar cookies are famous. I love my toes. Yes, my toes. I have an usual collection of photographs of my feet. :) What? They're cute. I wish I was one third of an elite crime fighting team backed by an anonymous billionaire. I love movies, especially romantic comedies and love stories and no I am not excluding the Hallmark channel and made for tv movies - I love those too. I love to laugh and love being around people  that can laugh with/at me. I love sporting events IN person. I am a lover, not a fighter and I am pretty easy going, but I am also passionate and therefore I will defend my beliefs and doing the right thing until I am blue in the face. I love to do lists and I love always having a goal. I love the beach but I rather stay under the shade. I wear sunscreen like deoderant. I love trying new things and I love to upcycle. I like to coupon even though I'm horrible at it. I love to daydream especially right before I fall asleep. I love spending time with family and friends and I LOVE working from home so I can be with my baby girl.
