Preppy is as preppy does

popped collar

{Me and my #1 preppy icon…my sweet dad…both in our Polos, mine with collar popped. I’m also rocking a sweet side-ponytail}

Happy Friday to all you gorgeous friends! I hope all of you are well. I must say that this whole blog experience has been such an amazing one for me. There are so many cool bloggers out there and they've welcomed me into the circle just like one of the gang. I am humbled to say that I've been honored with another blog award. A huge thank you to Shannon at Webbisodes for choosing me for this award....Shannon, I'd like to hug your neck!

I have been given the Preppy Mafia Award. I’m not sure I consider myself a prepster, although I don't classify myself as a "girly girl" either and some of my most beloved folks say that I am, so anything is possible. Maybe Shannon saw me back in the day when my collar was always popped and my jeans tight-rolled. Hopefully she didn't have to witness my grunge/goth phase. Eww. Anyway....
