ABOUT ME!

So here are some answers to your questions, and more details about me.



Name: Tasha
Where I'm from: Indiana, US
Age: 23, will be 24 in April

Getting Personal:

My husband's name is Tim. I met him at work actually! I started working there in October of 2003. We started out as friends and got to know each other well before any romantic stuff happened! I must admit I thought he was cute from the beginning! I'm quite shy though and he claims he thought he would never have a chance with me! He eventually got the courage to ask me out on our first date, which that I'm so thankful for! Tim and I officially became "boyfriend and girlfriend" on February 5th 2005 after dating a little over a month.

He proposed in late summer of 2007 after we had been dating about 2 and half years. He had taken me one state over to Ohio to go to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. For those of you who don't know, I'm a huge Elvis Presley fan. So it was amazing to go to a place that has iconic Elvis memorabilia as well as other great singers and band's stuff. Anyway, we looked around for a few hours and then we were just were about to leave and Tim told me we needed to go back to something he forgot to show me. So we went back to where Elvis' family bible was on display and he got down on one knee in front of a whole ton of people and asked me to marry him!!! It was so sweet and well planned!




We got married July 5th 2008 at an outdoor park that was on a lake. We had around 150 people there. It was a gorgeous summer day that will forever hold an extremely special place in my heart. Click here to see an older post with tons of pictures from my wedding and more information on the big day!! By the way, my husband's birthday is September 5th 1983 and I was born April 5th 1986. Have you noticed a trend here? Five is our lucky number! It makes things easier on my husband. All he has to remember is the month!

When we got married, Tim left behind his one bedroom apartment and moved into my two bedroom apartment that I had lived in alone since March of 2005. We lived there up until this past October. Tim and I were fortunate enough to buy our first home. Now, it's not a mansion, by any means, but we love it and are so grateful for what God has blessed us with! It's a 4 bedroom 1 and 1/2 baths on half an acre. It's not a brand new home or anything, but it's HOME.

JOB:

My husband and I both work full time at the same job still. I won't say specifically where we work, but just that Tim and I are both in manager positions. Some of the people we are in charge over are difficult to work with at times, which makes for a frustrating work day. But in this economy we are just grateful to have a job that pays well enough and is full time.

Fashion:

My favorite place to shop is definitely Forever 21. It's not too pricey which is exactly what I need. I can still have fashionable clothes without outrageous price tags!!

My favorite thing in my closest right now: well that is a toss up between my new cardigan and new lace top both of which I ordered off of Forever 21's website and will have an outfit post about very soon!! Also, I can't forget my beloved Chanel purse!! You can really never go wrong with Chanel! This picture doesn't even do it justice!




As well as being a fan of Chanel, I usually love Blumarine too! Like these dresses from their Spring/summer 2010 collection. The colors are stunning!



Other Interests:

I'm also a huge fan of Twinning's tea. It's the best brand in my opinion! English Breakfast is my favorite amongst them right now, but it always changes!!


Since being married though my husband has turned me into a coffee drinker too!! But of course I have to have fun flavored creamers to go along with it!! Like this for example!




White Chocolate Raspberry! It's one of our favorites, sadly it only comes out during the holiday season!! It's amazingly tasty though!!

Brief mentions of other interests:
-books: I absolutely love to read. You can see all my favorites listed on my profile. I can easily get lost in a book for days on end!
-Audrey Hepburn: Style icon


Well, I suppose that's all for now, let me know if there's anything else you'd like to know more about! Have a wonderful day ladies!!

The outfit you are wearing is beautiful! There is something particularly pretty about you. I think it's those luscious lips. :)
I like this post! It makes me feel like I know you a little better.
I also, someday want a designer bag. Just for the fact that I have one. I would carry it everywhere and give it all my love.

I love hearing about how couples meet :)
(And I love Blumarine too - I think they're vastly under-rated.)

Forever 21 is my favorite store as well - I always say that I'm a walking advertisement for them; practically everything I wear is from there!
