Bloggy Shout Out: Meet Natalie!

I've been following Natalie's blog, Blonde At Heart, for a while now, and I  just love it!
She's adorable, fashionable, funny & super sweet!  
{seriously, check out her Awkward & Amazing posts... they're great!}

1. Why did you start blogging?  And what have you gained from it?

I started blogging in 2005 about a year after the Hubs and I got married and moved away from family. I blogged off and on as a way to try to stay connected with our friends and family. Since then my blog has changed a lot. I have grown as a story teller and have met some AMAZING bloggers! I love the blogging community and the friendships that I have gained through it. I am also super excited about meeting my first blogger friend in person this week!

2. Tell us something you're passionate about

I am passionate about God and clothes. Do those go together? Haha! God is such a huge part of my life, which is part of the reason that I love working with the high school youth group at our church. Its been so neat to work with these students and watch them love and serve God and others. And clothes, well that kinda is self explanatory, don't you think? I think clothes are beautiful and can help women feel as good as they truly are. Plus, I love a good deal!

3. Share a funny or embarrassing story about yourself

Hmmm. I thought this was sad at the time, but apparently everyone else I knew thought it was hysterical. I guess I will leave it up to you! :)
 I love squirrels. I think they are really cute and I get really excited when I see one. I was driving on a busy road headed over to pick up a friend when a squirrel decided 5pm was a fantastic time to try and cross the street. The squirrel ran in front of my car, made it to the next lane, saw a huge SUV and I guess figured it would fare better against my car instead. Unfortunately for it, it didn't. I saw the poor squirrel turn around and head back towards my car. I slammed on my breaks {yes, I break for squirrels and other small critters} and yelled. I thought I felt my car run over some little bump, but I wasn't sure. I looked in my rear-view mirror and there it was. Its fluffy little tail was sticking straight up in the air and its little body was curled in a ball. I knew it was dead. I cried a little, mourning its death. My friend said that it was in squirrel heaven, but I knew better. It was lying dead on a busy road in Oregon because I was a squirrel killer. I just knew that the other little squirrels were going to know what I did and start leaving us hate nuts on our door step. I am now keeping my eyes open for squirrel retaliation.



Haha... I'm sorry... but yes, that squirrel story is pretty funny! 
I'm the same way, though!
I haven't ever hit a critter yet, so I'm not sure how I would react, but I'm sure I would probably swerve too!
Thanks so much for stopping by, Natalie!
