Speaking of Being a Slacker...

So, a few MONTHS ago I said I was going to do a Q&A post. Did I ever do it?? No.

Do I remember the questions people asked? Some.

Am I going to search through my posts to find the rest? No.

So, here are the answers to the questions I can remember, and if you have any other questions go ahead and ask them in the comments (or email me directly at gentrileeblog(at)gmail(dot)com). I promise I won't take 2 months to answer them this time. haha!


Q: Love your name, where did it come from?? (I get this a lot)
A: My mom had just heard it from a friend once and liked it. Most of the time you'll see them spelled with a J or a Y (on the end). My mom thought the G and the I were more feminine. And Lee is my mom's middle name, so that's where that came from. "The Gentry" is actually a term for people of noble birth or high social class. That explains why I'm so fancy! haha! jk.

Q: What is the "Gentri Lee's Blog Award"?
A: That is a button reserved for those picked as "Blog of the Week".

Q: What is "Blog of the Week"?
A: BOW is something I started to introduce my readers to other bloggers who I feel deserve a little spotlight time. I always pick those bloggers who post often, post lots of nice pictures and interesting posts, and have under 400 followers.

Q: How did you get into blogging?
A: Well, I actually have had this blog for... 3 years (wow) but I didn't really get into blogging or know what it was all about until last Spring (2011) when I was introduced to craft blogs, then fashion blogs, and then it just exploded from there. My BFF and Sister are the ones who told me to start one and basically did it for me. (Who knows if I'd be here today without them.)

Q: What is your favorite movie?
A: Right now?? Tangled. Seriously. I loved that movie from the very first time I saw it. I was a nanny before I moved (two weeks ago) and the girl I nannied watched Tangled pretty much every day. You would think I would have gotten sick of it. Nope. It just made me love it more! haha!

So, that's all I can remember. If you have ANY other (appropriate) questions please ask in the comments or email me at gentrileeblog(at)gmail(dot)com! :D

i always wondered what your name meant, too! it's really pretty and unique.. i'd never heard it before.

i still need to see tangled!

oh so a little while ago you had written a comment to me about your experience in nyc.. and it sounded like a crazy experience! you ran into some crazy people and whatnot! would you give nyc another chance?

i didn't get a chance to respond to you about that comment, but i did think about it! i grew up outside the city.. i haven't had any totally insane or negative people related experiences.. i mean, i've been proposed to on the subway more than once and one time some drunk guy tried to share his french fries with me.. but i do feel safe there. i think there are crazy and nasty people everywhere (unfortunately) but in ny.. if you know where you're going (or put on a face like you do) you generally don't get bothered. i have the worst sense of direction so if i'm in a part of the city i am unfamiliar with i get lost pretty quickly, but a passerby would neeeever know i was lost from the way i conduct myself. yes, so if you did go back, that would be my advice :) act like you belong there :)

love this pic. very creative and makes me think of the beatles for some reason (kinda like a modern version of the abbey road album cover). I may have to borrow this photo idea.

love the story behind your name and the fact it's so unique & pretty :)
