We're updating the blog a bit and decided to share some fun facts about "The Girls of PARISH" with our favorite blog readers! Our sweet intern Allie answered these last week so here is the update on the rest of us!

{photo by Holland Williams}[/caption] EVERY HOME NEEDS… drapery! IF I WASN’T A DESIGNER I’D BE… a teacher.  I want the summers off! MY PERFECT SATURDAY… my family all together with breakfast in bed and cartoons. FAVORITE MOVIE QUOTE…  "I want the fairytale." – Pretty Woman LATEST ADDICTION… dry shampoo. I KNEW I WANTED TO BE A DESIGNER WHEN… rather than playing dolls when I was little I played "architecture" and drew house plans. YOU CAN ALWAYS FIND THIS IN MY PURSE… a pacifier and a tape measure. I GET EMBARRASSED WHEN… my child announces that she just went poo poo in the potty in a public place. BEST MOTHERLY ADVICE… cherish every little moment. YOU COULDN’T PAY ME TO… come within 10 feet of a roach. FAVORITE CLASS IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL… art LEAST FAVORITE COLLEGE ASSIGNMENT…ugh, where to begin...an abstract drawing assignment for architecture...sounds easy but totally wasn’t. GUILTY OF SPENDING TOO MUCH MONEY ON… moving… 7 houses in 8 years.

{photo by Holland Williams}[/caption] I KNEW I WANTED TO BE A DESIGNER WHEN… I painted my childhood bedroom like 30 times…my mother was a saint for putting up with me!!! I GET EMBARRASSED WHEN… when I fall down…which happens more often than I’d like to admit. YOU COULDN’T PAY ME TO…hold, touch, or kill a bug. IF I WASN’T A DESIGNER I’D BE…a vet. EVERY HOME NEEDS… art, drapery, and great lighting. YOU CAN ALWAYS FIND THIS IN MY PURSE… trash… 3 THINGS YOU’D WANT ON A DESERTED ISLAND… music, margaritas, and my two favorite guys (if that’s one too many, then I’d lose the margaritas) RANDOM THING I’M GOOD AT…remembering random unimportant facts. FAVORITE MOVIE QUOTE… “I’ll have what she’s having” When Harry Met Sally BEST MOTHERLY ADVICE… take a deep breath and relax. FAVORITE CLASS IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL…nap time. ONE THING I ALWAYS BUY EVEN IF I ALREADY OWN 12… lip gloss LEAST FAVORITE COLLEGE ASSIGNMENT…anything that had to do with math…yuck. GUILTY OF SPENDING TOO MUCH MONEY ON… Charlie!

Emi:

Emi-Matt RANDOM THING I’M GOOD AT… walking on my hands. ONE THING I ALWAYS BUY EVEN IF I ALREADY OWN 12… antique chairs. Ok, maybe I don’t own 12, but I have more than enough. EVERY HOME NEEDS… organization! Pretty stuff doesn't look so great under a pile of clutter. YOU COULDN’T PAY ME TO… do anything involving birds. MY PERFECT SATURDAY… the lake or the beach. Pretty much anything involving the sun and a body of water. FAVORITE MOVIE QUOTE… “What do you want to be married to me for, anyhow? So I can kiss you anytime I want.” – Sweet Home Alabama GUILTY OF SPENDING TOO MUCH MONEY ON… traveling! IF I WASN’T A DESIGNER I’D BE… a high school teacher. I KNEW I WANTED TO BE A DESIGNER WHEN… I rearranged my parents’ whole house without permission. My mom almost fell over the back of the sofa when she got home. YOU CAN ALWAYS FIND THIS IN MY PURSE… too many pairs of sunglasses. BEST MOTHERLY ADVICE… never put anything in the dryer until you get the stain out! FAVORITE CLASS IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL… gym. LEAST FAVORITE COLLEGE ASSIGNMENT… I had to do a four foot tall painting made of ½” squares of hand painted paper to create a pixelated image. I want to cry just thinking about it.

Hey Ladies!

Always enjoy reading your posts and LOVE, LOVE your style! Would love to see a post about how to incorporate your children’s photos onto your walls. I really only like paintings/mirrors on my walls and now that we have had kids, I have had a hard time committing to putting photos (even of my beautiful kiddos) on the walls. Maybe if y’all could do a post on pretty children’s photo displays, it would inspire me!

Best,
Ashley
