Bye Bye & Fill in the Blank Friday

Hello, Hello!
I am headed out of town for a few days- to Pittsburgh to be exact. For a conference, as you know. I'm feel a bit of trepidation because I don't know what to expect (and because I have some veeery ill-fitting company shirts to wear to the conference). Thankfully, I can talk to a brick wall- so I think I'll be all right. :)

I have no guest bloggers. I don't feel the necessity as I only have 14 followers. What am I, Sadie?? I actually have at least 6 people that read the blog that aren't followers. So I make it to the fab round number 20! But you know what? I have found that blogging is rather cathartic and so I do it for me. That being said, I'm going to fill out the "Fill in the Blank Friday" even though it's Sunday. ") My blog, my rules- right?

1. My biggest accomplishment thus far in life is... this is tough! I think learning to be myself. I was talking with AC last week about life and dating. I went from being completely insecure as a kid and in high school to being a little too independent since college. There's good and bad to the independence, and I'm learning to balance it. I think over the past few years- all the crap endured considered (which is mild compared to most)- I'm beginning to learn who I really am, that I love independence but need friends, and to truly appreciate how valuable knowing who you are, and who you want to be, can be in life. I expect to always be learning and growing, but I like who I am becoming.

2. My favorite place to sit in my house is... my sofa right now. But when my Granny's antique chair is recovered and here, it will be there.

3. My fashion philosophy is... Call Ashley Coggin!!!

4. Something every girl should have is... a Bible and best friends.

5. If you look in my purse right now you'd find... Shep's iPod, my silk change purse, my wallet, a small cosmetic bag that's rarely opened, my camera, three pins, a pocket knife (never go without!), chapstick and lip gloss. And probably some dirt.

6. My favorite music right now is... the sound of Nathan's laughter and "Colder Weather" by the Zac Brown Band.

7. My favorite part of my body is... YEAH RIGHT! What a question. OK, got it. My finger nails from the mani I got Friday.

All About Ashley

Playing with and keeping up with my nephew and niece take up a lot of my time. Van Geaux takes up the rest of it. Work is an afterthought most days! I like to be outside- but not when it's too hot. I get bored at my desk all day. Niki keeps my world spinning and without her and AC I'd lose it. My work ethic crashes at 4 p.m. daily and I live my sweet puppy and my hedgehog whenever I am not at Niki's. I truly believe naps are quality pass-time events, and sometimes I say bad words at work. I'm pretty sure I'm insane on multiple levels and I believe rules don't apply to me.
It seems that my life is quite entertaining. I didn't realize this myself, but was informed of it by my friends- who are rather entertained by tales of my life occurrences.

I'm far from a professional writer. These are just stories, comments, and other items for simple amusement. Hopefully it's a fun read, as Shannon plans to edit it into a book one day! Maybe we'll become famous, and maybe we'll just have some good laughs at my expense (and some other characters in my life). Either way, happy reading!
