10 years ago marked the summer before my senior year in high school. I spent the summer playing lots of golf and researching colleges. I was also working at a mall in suburban Detroit and just having fun being a teenager. I’m sure chasing boys also fit into my schedule that summer too!
2. Five Items on my to-do list today:
-Pack for Houston (heading there for a wedding!)
-Order fabric for a pair of benches I’m having re-upholstered
-Find the perfect pair of lamps for my bedroom
-Sign up for personal training at my gym (this will probably get put off until it never happens!)
-Swiffer my floors
3. Snacks I enjoy:
I know it sounds strange but I rarely eat snacks! I do love to bake though and every now and then when I get a craving for sweets I’ll bake things like oatmeal raisin cookies with chocolate chips, apple pie, peach crisp, vanilla
cupcakes…you name it. But the funny thing is that I usually only
eat a few bites to get my fix and then give the rest away. I always have fresh iced tea and lemonade in the fridge and I like both extremely sweet…so I guess that’s the “snack” I enjoy most regularly. Oh–and I love Nesquick chocolate milk! Almost forgot about that! Yum!
-Take care of my family!
-Buy both of my parents their ultimate dream house.
-Establish trusts for all of my nieces, nephews and little cousins to cover their education costs.
-Establish a charitable foundation and give money to causes that are dear to my heart.
-Do some volunteer work.
-Go back to school and maybe study art history.
-Travel the world.
-Buy myself a beach house or two…maybe in St Barths, Mexico’s Mayan Riviera or some fab European destination like Marbella or Monte Carlo.
-Buy a cottage on Lake Michigan, a brownstone on NYC’s Upper West Side, a country farmhouse in the Catskills, a greystone in Chicago and a cute little beach house in Malibu.
-Lavishly decorate all of my homes
-Build an empire that will give Martha Stewart a run for her money!
-And hopefully getting married, having babies and living happily ever after will be the icing on the cake:)
5. What places would you live?
-Anywhere in the Caribbean… The sun, the sand, the palm trees, the fresh seafood…nuff said.
-CHICAGO! Love that city. I went to undergrad there. It’s like my second home & I miss it!
-Atlanta: One of my BFF’s is there, love the laid back lifestyle and you can’t beat the cost of living.
-SanFrancisco: Love it there!
