Lovely pics, especially number four haha ;) Fun post! My mom's obsessed with climbing mountains though she never has climbed anywhere higher than the smoky mountains :D She used to be obsessed with conquering everest, but i think she's pretty much given up that dream by now... We still have a bookshelf full of climbing books though :D
maybe I'll do this myself when I have time :)

Noble Beeyotch said...

Erika said...

My seven fun facts:

1) I wear boots year-round; I find it hard to resist slipping them on with cut-off denim shorts and tanks.

2) I'm addicted to Online shopping - I spend hours each week browsing different virtual shops.

3) I'm obsessed with the style of New York socialites - my current favorites include Olivia Palermo and Ivanka Trump.

4) I have just recently become infatuated with slouchy, floral tanks - in fact, I purchased my first one from Forever 21's online shop mere moments ago!

5) I love to look at cupcakes, but I truly can't stand the taste (aside from the frosting, that is!).

6) My fear of high heels stems from an incident when, at the age of four, I slipped a pair of my mother's on, and promptly fell down the stairs. Oddly enough, I emerged unscathed.

7) Lacy underthings with little bows, and French Maid, Moulin Rouge, boudoir inspiration are a guilty pleasure of mine.
