Blogger of the Week: Paisley and Pearls!

Hello, all you GentriLee followers! I'm L. Caroline from Paisley and Pearls, GentriLee's guest blogger of the week!

First of all, I want to start off by thanking Gentri for the opportunity to be the FIRST guest blogger! Pretty exciting, if you ask me (And, since I'm the guest blogger, I'll pretend you asked). Also, I want to thank Gentri again for the wonderful goodies I am anxiously awaiting in the mail. Best. giveaway. ever! I remember finding her adorable blog back in my first days of blogging. I've loved following along and have picked up some great makeup and hair stylin' ideas, been inspired, and gotten some good laughs. It's so exciting to see how much her blog has grown. Congratulations on 100 followers, Gentri!

Now, let me tell you a little bit about me. I am a twenty-something southern girl, currently living in Nashville, TN. I am obsessed with all things monogrammed, anything navy blue, pink and green, and paisley print and polka dots. I and am also of the opinion that pearls go with everything. I love baking, crafting, and creating. In grad school I was officially referred to by my friends as "Martha". As in Martha Stewart. Minus the jail stint, I will take it as a complement!

 I am engaged to a wonderful man and we are tying the knot in 5 short months at a beautiful plantation here in Nashville. 

I am a puppy-mommy to a sweet, fluffy goldendoodle named Paisley who is just a tiny bit spoiled.

 I am a recent graduate (as in last Saturday) and now have a clinical doctorate in occupational therapy. I am passionate about working with children and their families and started my first big-girl-job at a local clinic for autism (the Monday after graduation, no less).

A little over a year ago a friend and I laughed about not starting blogs until we were either engaged (in my case), pregnant (definitely in her case), or got a dog (again, in my case). We both now have blogs! My blog topics vary from picture overloads of Paisley, wedding inspiration, and life updates. The last few months have been crazy as I've been finishing grad school but I am working on a weekly schedule in order to share a little more regularly. I would love for you all to stop by and visit (and of course, follow along if you'd like!) and comment to let me know you are from Gentri's blog. Thanks again, Gentri!

Thanks to L. Caroline for stepping in and doing her guest blog today! Timing couldn't be more perfect... as I am on a break, remember? haha! Plus i just love her and her blog and am so excited to have her as my first blogger of the week! Now go check out her blog!!

Gentri: thanks for the comment on my blog :] i totally know what you mean by needing patience! haha i miss the days when parents paid for clothes and all you have to do is walk into a store in the mall and say "mom what do you think?!" and then it ended up in your closet, well usually. gosh those were the days.
